In Bible Scriptures the Lord clearly identifies His bride by actually proclaiming "The Bride". Do you know which Scriptures they are?

September 18, 2016
BREAKING:
Bride of Christ Revelation

You may have been misled and this article may rock your world. The following Bible Scriptures reveal God the Father and His Children, as well as who the TRUE BRIDE really is. Please send us your comments and questions or visit us on Facebook.
Prepared by J. Israel
& B. Israel

To teach us His heavenly truth, the Lord uses parables (metaphors); earthly pictures used to explain spiritual truth in a way we can understand. Yashua/Jesus once asked a religious leader, "If I have told you earthly things, and you don't believe, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?" Bible Scriptures includes many parables to teach us spiritual truth of great importance. However, Scriptures also contain prophesies. May the Holy Spirit help you to have eyes to see and ears to hear, and to distinguish the difference between the revelation of a parable and the prophetic word.

You may already know that you have a heavenly Father, but did you know Scriptures reveal you have a heavenly Mother as well? Yes, Scriptures reveal the Father, the Mother and the Children. John, one of the original twelve disciples of Christ, was banished to the island of Patmos, where he received many prophetic visions and revelations, which are recorded in Scriptures in the Book of Revelation. John was given a detailed prophetic snapshot of the 'Mother', which we see described in Revelation 12.

Revelation 12:1-5 & 17, And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a WOMAN clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with CHILD cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And SHE brought forth a MAN CHILD, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and HER child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the dragon was wroth with the WOMAN, and went to make war with the remnant of HER seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yahshua/Jesus Christ.

Clearly, OUT OF the Woman came Christ, who is to rule the nations with a rod of iron. And also coming out of the very same Woman are those who keep God's commandments, as well as the testimony of Jesus. So, who is this woman or MOTHER that birthed Christ as well as His followers who testify of Yahshua and also keep God's commands?

Galatians 4:26, "...JERUSALEM which is above is free, which is the MOTHER of us all."

Have you ever been taught this New Covenant truth that JERUSALEM is the Mother of us all?

The Father!

Okay, the Woman who gave birth to Yahshua/Jesus and all true Christians is JERUSALEM; however, did you know there are dozens of Scriptures that reveal God is not only Yahshua's/Jesus' Father, but is also considered to be the FATHER of all who follow Yahshua/Jesus as Savior and Lord?

In Luke 11:2, Yahshua/Jesus taught us how to pray to God,
"When you pray, say, Our Father..."

1 Cor. 8:6, "But to us there is but one God, the Father..."

Galatians 4:6, And because you are sons, God has sent forth THE SPIRIT of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Ephesians 2:18, For through him (Yahshua) we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

The Children!

Did you know that those who accept Yahshua/Jesus and have repented of their sins are PREDESTINED to be Sons and Children of God? There are at least 26 New Covenant Scripture declaring Holy Spirit led followers of Yahshua to be "God's Children".

Yes, God's people are... "...predestined...to adoption as SONS by Savior/Jesus, The Anointed One..." (Ephesians 1:5)

1 John 3:10, "...We know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God's child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister."

Romans 8:14, "For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God."

Galatians 3:26, "So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith..."

Romans 8:16, "The Holy Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children."

Romans 8:19, "...creation waits in eager expectation for the CHILDREN of God to be revealed."

Revelation 21:7, "Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children."

Jerusalem, the Mother!

Many of us already understand that there is an everlasting covenant between Abba/Father God and His children, but is there an everlasting covenant between Abba and anyone or anything else?

Psalm 132:13&14, "For the Lord hath chosen Zion (Jerusalem); he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest FOR EVER: here will I DWELL; for I have desired it."

2 Chronicles 33:4, "My Name will remain in JERUSALEM forever."

1 Chronicles 23:25, "...The God of Israel, has granted rest to his people and has come to dwell in JERUSALEM forever..."

The LAND is Married!

Isaiah 62:1-7, "For ZION'S sake will I not hold my peace, and for JERUSALEM'S SAKE I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burnt. And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

"You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall YOUR LAND any more be termed Desolate: but you shall be called Hephzibah, and YOUR LAND Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and YOUR LAND SHALL BE MARRIED. For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall YOUR SONS MARRY YOU (Jerusalem): and as the bridegroom rejoices over THE BRIDE, so shall your God rejoice over you. I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O JERUSALEM, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make JERUSALEM a praise in the earth.

Jeremiah 33:16 ...And this is the name by which (the bride Jerusalem) will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.'

After all, that's also the Lord's name... (Jeremiah 23:6), "THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."

Meanwhile, God prophesied comfort to the Bride, Jerusalem, saying...

Isaiah 49:18, Lift up your eyes, look around and see; All these gather together and come to you. As I live," says the Lord, "You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all as an ornament (wedding garments), And bind them on you as a bride does.

Interestingly, both the Lord and His covenant children are married to the land in everlasting Covenant; and in this prophecy, the children of God are referred to as the covering of JERUSALEM as a WEDDING GARMENT/ORNAMENT.

New Jerusalem!

Remember, Yahshua our Savior went "...to PREPARE A PLACE for (us)." (John 14:2)

Revelation 21:2, ...John, saw the holy city, New JERUSALEM, coming down out of heaven from God, PREPARED as a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:9, An angel of the Lord declared New JERUSALEM to BE "THE BRIDE, THE LAMB'S WIFE".

Revelation 19:7 ...the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."

John meticulously described Yahshua our Savior's Bride as... (Revelation 21:12-21) (having) a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. Now the wall of the CITY had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the CITY, its gates, and its wall. The CITY is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the CITY with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits ( approx. 250 - 300 feet in height), according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel."

So, what will the heavenly Bride, New Jerusalem be clothed with?

Revelation 19:8 ...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.

Who will be able to enter New Jerusalem?

Revelation 21:24 "...the nations of those who are saved shall WALK in its light..."

Invite to the Marriage DINNER!

(Revelation 19:9) ...Blessed...those who are called to the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the Lamb!'"

Matthew 22:1-14, And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is LIKE unto a certain king, which made a MARRIAGE FOR HIS SON, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my DINNER: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways...

"Then said he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were invited were not worthy. Go you therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, invite to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was FURNISHED WITH GUESTS. And when the king came in to see the GUESTS, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he said unto him, Friend, how is it you came here without having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen."

In regards to His wedding, how does Yahshua/Jesus describe His disciples? Matthew 9:15, As "...friends of the bridegroom..."

Have you accepted Abba/Father God's invitation to enter the eternal covenant of salvation? Are you ready to spend eternity with Him in the Kingdom He is also eternally covenanted to, New Jerusalem?

2 Peter 1:11, "...The everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Yahshua, Jesus the Messiah."

Revelation 21:3 & Ezekiel 37:27, And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will DWELL WITH THEM, and they shall be HIS PEOPLE, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Note: Scripture prophecy reveals the names Yahshua/Jesus would be called. Isaiah 9:6 prophetically declares, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Yes, prophecy reveals Yahshua/Jesus will be called "Everlasting Father". Meanwhile, there are PARABLES, not prophecies, in the New Covenant, which teach Father God's Sons and Children are to be chaste, pure, and faithfully waiting for Yahshua as a virgin or a bride would.
Other Bible Scripture parables refer to Abba's children as 'sheep'.

Prophecy in the news revealing the truth, prepared by editor@ConnectionMagazine.org to help explain the end times, last days revelation and prophecy in the news that is beginning to happen all across the United States of America and around the world. Those who accept Jesus/Yahshua as Lord and Savior, confessing and forsaking their sins, will be forgiven. Rom. 10, & 1 John 1

GOD'S HEALTH PLAN
Requirments for God's Health Benefits...
Prepared by J Israel

Mark 2:17, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are SICK. (Jesus/Salvation) did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."

James 5:16, Confess your trespasses (sins) to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be HEALED.

Matt. 3:7-8, ...fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be a HEALING for YOUR FLESH and a refreshment for your body.

Isaiah 53:5, (Jesus/Salvation) was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are HEALED.

Do you need emotional/mental healing!

Psalm 34:17-20 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.

Psalm 147:3, (The Lord) heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

Take Isaiah for example...

Isaiah 38:15, ...because of this anguish of my soul. Lord, by such things people live; and my spirit finds life in them too. You restored me to health and let me live. Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish.

Requirements for long life...

Proverbs 3:1-2, My child, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and YEARS of LIFE and abundant welfare they will give you.

Helping the poor and needy...

Isaiah 58:7-8, Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover him, And not hide yourself from your own flesh? THEN your light shall break forth like the morning, your HEALING shall spring forth speedily,...

Faith in Jesus/Salvation can also heal your family members and acquaintances!

Matt 15:28, Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your FAITH! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

Matthew 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.

In Closing...

Hebrews 12:13, ...make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

RESPOND to THREAT of DEATH!
Psalm 20:7, Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Prepared by Jonathan Israel


Prophetically, wars and death increases at the time of the end of the age. Yes, and some governments are EVIL and the whole world is under the sway of the wicked one (satan), 1 John 5:19.

However,

1 John 4:4-5, He who is in you (Christ the SAVIOR) is GREATER than he who is in the world. They (carnal, worldly and fleshy voices) are of the world. Therefore they speak AS OF THE WORLD, and the world hears them.

2 Corinthians 10:2-4, ...I intend to be
bold against SOME, (those) who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we DO NOT war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God...

Ephesians 6:13-18, ...
the shield of FAITH with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Ephesians 6:12, 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.

YES...

Philippians 3:3, For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the
SPIRIT, rejoice in Christ Jesus/Salvation, and have no confidence in the flesh,...

Psalm 144:2, The LORD is ...my lovingkindness and my
FORTRESS, My high tower and my DELIVERER, My shield and the One in whom I take refuge,...

A Great Falling Away is Coming. GET READY!
Jesus/Salvation says His followers will be the ones being killed, NOT those doing the killing.


Matthew 24:7-13, Jesus/Salvation said, "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and KILL YOU, and
you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because LAWLESSNESS will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

Do you see Christians who love their worldly kingdom even to the point of compromise? Those who love this world, carnal/FLESHY Christians seeking to save themselves and their worldly kingdom, will betray true Holy SPIRIT-filled, faith led followers of Jesus/Salvation unto death.

Galatians 4:29, ...he who was born according to the
FLESH then persecuted him who was born according to the SPIRIT, even so it is now.

Mark 13:12, Now brother (carnal fleshy Christian) will betray brother (Spirit led Christian) to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.

How should we respond to such persecution?

Romans 12:14, Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

Matthew 10:23, When they persecute you in this city, flee to another.

Daniel 12:7, ...and when the power of the HOLY PEOPLE has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

THEREFORE...

Proverbs 3:25, Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; For THE LORD will be your confidence...

Matthew 10:28, ...DO NOT FEAR those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

And when people begin to be KILLED for NOT taking mark of the beast or worshipping his image...

Revelation 14:13, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.

Revelation 20:4, Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus/Salvation and for the WORD of God, who had
NOT worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

GET READY!!

Meanwhile, as lawlessness, violence and destruction increases in the USA, Beware of CARNAL messages that incite you to rise up in your flesh, to prep for war against people, or the Government. Resist the temptation to rely on carnal/worldly weapons. There are enemies of the FAITH who would mock you and provoke you to guns and bullets; they blatantly belittle those of FAITH who would rather fully trust the Lord for their deliverance.

Yes, owning a gun is your right as a law abiding citizen. And defending yourself and your family against criminals is perfectly legal. Ask the Lord for wisdom regarding these things and follow as His Holy Spirit leads and instructs you.

Eating Laws Reconciled!
What about followers of Jesus/Yahshua who follow all or portions of Moses eating Laws?
Prepared by Jonathan Israel

WARNING: In 1 Timothy 1:7, Bible Scripture warns of those "Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm."

Old or first covenant believers were introduced to the elementary law known as "tutor" or "guardian". New Covenant believers are introduced to an advanced or higher level of law or FAITH called "Law of the Spirit", "Law of Faith", and "Law of Liberty".

Galatians 3:22-24, "Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the FAITH that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our guardian UNTIL Christ came that we might be justified by faith. Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian."

Romans 8:2, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

The old or first covenant that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob made with His people was based on the laws implemented by Moses. But remember, prior to the law, the 10 Commandments had been given to the people (written by finger of God) in the wilderness before reaching the promised land of Israel.

Interesting to note: the tablets inscribed with the 10 Commandments were kept inside the Ark of the Covenant, and the laws, statutes and precepts were kept outside of the Ark.

Jesus addresses dietary laws in light of spiritual purity ...

Mark 7:14-23, Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them." After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. "Are you so dull?" he asked. "Don't you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn't go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body." He went on: "What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come-sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person."

The following dietary laws were given to Gentiles who repented of their sins and began to follow Jesus/Yahshua as Lord?

Acts 15:19-20, "It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood."

1 Corinthians 8:8, "But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do."

1 Timothy 4:4-6, "For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. I f you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed."

Understanding New Covenant We Are Now Under

Hebrews 9:9-14, "This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper. They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings-external regulations applying UNTIL the time of the new order . But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! For this reason Christ is the mediator of a NEW Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance-now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant."

More of Moses Covenant Law Compared to Jesus' Covenant Law of the Spirit

Mark 10:1-12, Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them. Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" "What did Moses command you?" he replied. They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."
When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."

So, which Covenant are you under? Who do you follow? So, What About The Law That Came Before Jesus/Yahs hua

Romans 2:23, You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?

1 Corinthians 1:31, "Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord."

Galatians 6:14, But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Philippians 3:3, For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God [ a] and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh-

Galatians 3:19, What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made

Moses allowed Divorce for any reason..... Jesus does not!

Moses declared certain foods unclean and prohibited certain animals from being eaten, while Jesus says food does NOT defile and He allows all His created animals to be eaten if received by faith and with thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:13-17, And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Are you obedient to the Holy Spirit as your teacher of what is pleasing, holy and acceptable to the Lord? Or are you still limited to the elementary teachings of Moses' law? Clearly, some are consigned to faith in Moses' law and some have been born of the Holy Spirit after accepting Messiah's mercy and grace, and are now following the Law of Spirit, Law of Faith and Law of Liberty.

The one consigned to Moses' law may not eat bacon for breakfast but then has no problem indulging in junk foods, since the law of Moses does not address modern day junkfood. The one led by the Holy Spirit may eat a piece of bacon for breakfast but then is convicted when he indulges in too much junkfood. So, being convicted by the Holy Spirit, he does not indulge in junk food even though the Bible does not address junkfood. He is led by the law of faith and law of the Spirit, and not the law of Moses, to take care of his body, the temple of the Lord.

None of us are to be lawless! In Jesus/Yahshua, the believers of weak faith are to be accepted and respected by the mature believer led by law of faith. Likewise, those of weak faith are not to reject those led by the law of faith, law of the Spirit and law of liberty. They are both acceptable to the Lord...

Romans 14:20-22, Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall. So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves.

Romans 14:1-6, Him that is weak in the faith you should receive, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eats herbs. Let not him that eats despise him that eats not; and let not him which eats not judge him that eats: for God hath received him. Who art thou that judges another man's servant? to his own master he stands or falls. Yes, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand. One man esteems one day above another: another esteems every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regards the day, regards it unto the Lord; and he that regards not the day, to the Lord he does not regard it. He that eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he that eats not, to the Lord he eats not, and gives God thanks.

Note: Those who boast in the law and reject that righteousness and salvation only come through Jesus/Yahshua as Lord are to be rejected. Likewise, those who claim to accept Jesus/Yahshua as Lord and Savior are to be rejected if they themselves live lawless.

1 Corinthians 5:11-13, But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or COVETOUS, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are WITHOUT/OUTSIDE? do not ye judge them that are WITHIN/INSIDE? But them that are without God judges. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

END TIME WARNING: Dangerous Work of Flattery
Bible Scripture prophesies that a great FLATTERER will rule earth as king at the time of the end of the age before the Lord Jesus/Yahshua returns. Who will this leader of FLATTERY be?

The flatterer appeals to the flesh by glorifying or drawing positive attention to the flesh to gain undue influence or acceptance for selfish motives.

Flattery is deception.

Flattery is manipulation.


We should not allow ourselves to be defined or puffed up by carnal attributes such as outward beauty, worldly intelligence or earthly wealth. We should not be defined by the world, human opinion, carnal memberships or nationality. Rather, we should be defined by our Heavenly citizenship and the Lord Jesus (Yahshua) Himself. We should be defined by the word of God and by the Holy Spirit. Scripture declares true believers are known by the spiritual fruits they bear, and by their love for one another.

Biblical Warning About Flatterers

Job 17:5, He that speaks
FLATTERY to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

Psalm 5:9, For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they FLATTER with their tongue.

Psalm 12:2, They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with
FLATTERING lips and with a DOUBLE HEART do they speak.

Psalm 12:3, The Lord shall cut off all
FLATTERING lips,…

Flatterers Follow Their Own Desires and Seek Own Advantage

Jude 1:6, These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and
FLATTER others for their own advantage.

Fruits of a flatterer: Talebearing/Gossip and Ruin

Prov 20:19, He that goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets: therefore meddle not with him that
FLATTERS with his lips.

Prov 26:28, …a
FLATTERING mouth works ruin.

Prov 29: 5, A man that
FLATTERS his neighbor spreads a net for his feet.

Should using FLATTERY or any cover for selfish desire be found among true followers of Jesus/Yahshua?

1 Thess 2:5, For neither at any time used we
FLATTERING words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:…

Prov 2:11&16, DISCRETION shall preserve thee, UNDERSTANDING shall keep thee:…, To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which
FLATTERS with her words;

RISE of Evil Leadership

Daniel 11:21, And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and OBTAIN the kingdom by
FLATTERIES.

FALL of Godly Leadership, and the Evil King’s End Game

Daniel 11:32-39, And such as do wickedly Against The Covenant shall he corrupt by
FLATTERIES: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall FALL by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall FALL, they shall be helped with a LITTLE help: but many shall cleave to them with FLATTERIES.

And some of them of understanding shall FALL, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed. And the king shall do according to HIS WILL; and he shall EXALT HIMSELF, and MAGNIFY HIMSELF above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall MAGNIFY HIMSELF above all. But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not, shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a STRANGE GOD, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to RULE OVER MANY, and shall divide the land for GAIN.

Prophecy: Damascus’ Destruction is Harbinger
Will the destruction of Damascus signal the end of the U.S. as a fortress of safety for Bible believers?

Damascus, Syria is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world; however, does the prophetic destruction of Damascus signal a time after which only few of those in covenant with the Lord will be left remaining in the land. What is it that will happen at that time so intense that it will cause all to look to the Lord?
 
Are you in covenant with the God of Jacob? Are you in covenant with Lord Jesus (Yahshua haMashiach)? What is this upcoming event that only seems to leave a remnant of God’s people in the land? It can’t be the resurrection, since after the dead who belong to the Lord are raised, then ALL who remain alive belonging to Him will be rise to meet the Lord in the clouds. None belonging to the Lord will be left behind after the resurrection.

So, what event is just on the horizon that only leaves a remnant belonging to the Lord?

“Concerning Damascus, Hamath and Arpad are dismayed, for they have heard bad news. They are disheartened, troubled like the restless sea. Damascus has become feeble, she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain has seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor. Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the LORD Almighty. “I will set fire to the walls of Damascus; it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.” (Jeremiah 49:23-27)

End of the Age Prophecy
 
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. The
fortified city will disappear from Ephraim (covenant believers grafted in from Gentile nations), and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,” declares the LORD Almighty. “In that day the glory of Jacob (not just Judah (Jews), but all covenant people of the Lord) will fade; the fat of his body will waste away.”
 
Great Falling Away!

“It will be as when reapers harvest the standing grain, gathering the grain in their arms—as when someone gleans heads of grain in the Valley of Rephaim. Yet some gleanings will remain, as when an olive tree is beaten, leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches, four or five on the fruitful boughs,” declares the LORD, the God of Israel. In that day people will look to their Maker and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel." (Isaiah 17:1-7)

“Therefore, you Israelites, I will judge each of you according to your own ways, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, people of Israel? (Israel also includes all who are grafted into Covenant with the Lord and joint heirs).
 
“For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!” (Ezekiel 18:30-32)

Jesus said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)

Have you heard the recent reports of animals, fish and birds dying in record numbers with or without a scientific explanation? Large numbers of people are next.

“The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, Son of man, when the land sins against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:” (Ezekiel 14:12-13)

“The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

" And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” (Revelation 8:7-11)
 
“When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!”  I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth." (Revelation 6:7-8)

One fourth of the earth’s current population is 1.75 billion people, which means only about 5.25 billion people would be left alive if the prophesied war, famine and plague happened now.

Could this next prophecy mean nuclear war?

"The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard their number.

" The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. (Revelation 9:13-17)

One Taken, One Left!

One fourth of mankind is prophesied to be killed, followed by one third of mankind to be killed. No matter how many people on earth, one out of every two people, half of the earth’s population, will be killed as we get closer to Jesus’ return.
 
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

" Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.

"Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” (2 Peter 3:9-14)
 
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  (Matthew 3:2)

When you see the destruction of Damascus, I believe that it will be the harbinger signaling the persecution of Christians and Jews in the world with an intensity the world has never seen, and will spread to include Europe and the U.S. as well.

“Meanwhile, we are to strengthen the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22)

Note: Who Are The Elect of God?

“…Christ is all, and in all. Put on therefore,
as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man has a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.” (Colossians 3:11-13)
 
The “elect” are those of the Jews and Gentiles that Jesus (Yahshua) died for and forgave! Have you repented and forsaken your sins? Then you are the “elect”.

EXPOSED: America’s Counterfeit Churches,
Part 1 & Part 2

The following 7 points contrast the bright light of Scripture against America’s culturally influenced counterfeit churches and reveal how far American churches have strayed from the foundation of the prophets, apostles and Messiah himself, (see Ephesians 2:20). The counterfeit church has been dumbed down by cultural influences and has become a compromised, lukewarm invention of man. The counterfeit churches are filled with doctrines of demons and self-appointed, carnal-minded invaders who have usurped the authority of God; a stark contrast to the Spiritual, liberating and empowering counterculture revealed in Bible Scripture.
by Jonathan Israel

Matthew 7:14, “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are FEW who find it.”

Have you ever wondered at the lack of influence or authority of America’s version of Christianity? What if you were a member of the counterfeit church and didn’t know it? At the end of this article, you will know the difference between doctrinally sound churches, and the counterfeit churches of posers who have usurped the authority of Abba and foolishly claim “I built this church”, “this is MY church” and/or “I run things here”.

Scripture clearly warns believers NOT to become unequally YOKED with unbelievers.


Counterfeit churches ignorantly or rebelliously enter business partnerships with those who reject the Lord; they unite with UNBELIEVING patriots, conservatives and Constitutionalists; and they also foolishly enter engagements and marriages with those who do not believe in or elect to follow Yahshua/Jesus as Lord.

Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, unless they are in agreement?” 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 & 17, “Do NOT be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? Therefore, “Come out from among them And be separate,” says the Lord.

Scripture speaks against loving the world, the things of the world and heaping up the corrupted treasures of the world.

Counterfeit churches celebrate the increase of worldly possessions and earthly treasures as a sign of one’s own faithfulness and/or Abba’s approval.

1 John 2:15, Love not the world, neither the THINGS that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Matthew 6:19, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.” Luke 16:13, No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and (money, prosperity, wealth, success) mammon.

Scripture inspires believers to surrender their entire lives to Yahshua/Jesus 24/7 as an act of worship and sacrifice.

Counterfeit churches place the emphasis on attending 1-3 hour weekly congregational or assembly meetings as qualification of a life of worship and praise, and regularly teach their followers that weekly giving or donating money is their primary and/or lawfully required sacrifice.

Luke 9:23, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross DAILY, and follow Me.” Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a LIVING SACRIFICE, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Acts 5:42, “…DAILY in the temple, and in EVERY HOUSE, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.” Matthew 6:11, Pray DAILY, “Give us this day our DAILY bread.” Acts 17:11, “…they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures DAILY, whether those things were so.

Scripture instructs believers guard their faith and to work out their salvation with fear and trembling.

Counterfeit churches teach “once saved, always saved” as an argument against spiritual maturity and overcoming sin, satan and the world.

Philippians 2:12, “…CONTINUE to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,” Ephesians 2:8, For it is by grace you have been SAVED, through FAITH—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—1 Timothy 1:19, “…holding ON to FAITH and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck their FAITH.” 1 Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the FAITH, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,…”

 “Once saved always saved” belongs to the followers of Yahshua/Jesus who do Abba’s will. Matthew 7:21, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."

Scripture led believers truly love the Lord and WILLINGLY accept the Lord’s invitation to obey His commands; yet, they remain thankfully aware of the GIFT of salvation they received by grace through faith in Yahsua/Jesus.

Counterfeit churches blindly ignore or reject the exclusive invitation for those who LOVE the Lord to KEEP His COMMANDS. By default, they become a law unto themselves, embracing lawlessness and ignorantly claim they do not have to keep the Lord’s commandments because they are “saved by grace”.

John 14:15, Yahshua said, “If you love me, keep my COMMANDS.” 1 John 5:2, “This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out HIS COMMANDS.” John 14:21, “Whoever has my COMMANDS and keeps them is the one who loves me.” John 15:17, “This is my COMMAND: Love each other.” 2 John 1:6, “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his COMMANDS.” 1 John 2:4, Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he COMMANDS is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 1 John 2:3, “We know that we have come to know him if we keep his COMMANDS.” 1 John 3:24, “The one who keeps GOD’S COMMANDS lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.” Revelation 12:17, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which KEEP the COMMANDMENTS of GOD, and have the testimony of Yahshua ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ).”

Scripture commands true believers to walk in the power of the Lord and be both PERFECT and HOLY.

Counterfeit churches dismiss the Lord’s commands to be holy and perfect, and deceitfully embrace or ignorantly allow lawlessness and lukewarm lifestyles in the congregation under pretext that “nobody is perfect” and/or “we’re under grace”.

Matthew 5:48, “BE PERFECT, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect…” James 1:4, “But let patience have her perfect work, that you may BE PERFECT and entire, wanting nothing.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be PERFECT,…”  Ephesians 1:4, “…we should BE HOLY and without blame before him in love:” 1 Peter 1:15 & 16, “But as he which hath called you is holy, so you be HOLY in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, BE HOLY; for I am holy.”  2Corinthians 13:11, “Finally, brethren, farewell. BE PERFECT,…”

Scripture insists that in order to attain holy and perfect lives, true believers MUST be born again of the Holy Spirit, baptized in the Holy Spirit, filled with the Holy Spirit and led by the Holy Spirit.

Counterfeit churches reject the Holy Spirit’s presence, power and/or gifts.

John 3:7-8, Yahshua said, ‘You MUST be born again (of the Holy Spirit).’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the SPIRIT.” Acts 2:38, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 7:51, “…stiff-necked people… always resist the Holy Spirit!”  2 Timothy 3:5, They have “…a form of godliness but deny its POWER. Have nothing to do with such people.”

Acts 1:8, “But you will receive POWER when the Holy Spirit comes on you;…”

Matthew 7:8, “For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.”

Note: All of the true followers of Yahshua/Jesus are being corrected and perfected, which means we are also learning His word and His will more clearly. Stay humble and repentant. May the Lord continue to grow you up in all wisdom and knowledge of Himself and His ways.

EXPOSED: America’s Counterfeit Churches,
Part 2

by Jonathan Israel

The following 4 points contrast The Lord’s Biblical order for His congregations and church assemblies against America’s culturally influenced counterfeit church order, and reveal how far Americanized Christianity has strayed from the foundation of the prophets, apostles and Messiah himself. The counterfeit church has also undeniably been influenced by the Roman Catholic religion and unwittingly holds to the NicoLAITANS doctrine of the “Clergy/Laity” system or organization, where only an elite group or primary individual governs and regularly “ministers” to the submissive non-ministers of the church. This Nicolaitans doctrine is a doctrine Yahshua/Jesus hates,
(Revelation 2:15).


Americanized Christianity is a compromised, lukewarm invention of man that stifles the Spiritual power, growth, development and liberty of the body of believers. These counterfeit churches are filled with doctrines of demons and carnal-minded invaders, void of the Holy Spirit, who have usurped its authority.

Have you ever wondered at the lack of influence or authority of American Christianity? What if you were a member of the counterfeit church and didn’t know it? At the end of this article, you will understand the difference between the ONE TRUE CHURCH and the counterfeit churches of posers who have usurped Abba’s authority.

1) Scripture identifies new Covenant believers as those led by the law of liberty, law of faith, the law of the Spirit, and confirms they are free to give as the Holy Spirit leads.

Counterfeit churches have an unholy fixation with money and extorting money by erroneously teaching Moses’ ‘third year’ law of tithing as a weekly demand or lawful requirement, and evidence of a life submitted to the Lord.

2 Corinthians 9:7let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. Philemon 1:14 (Let) "...your good deedNOT be by compulsion..." Even if new Covenant believers were under the old Covenant law of Moses, tithing was only required by law every THIRD YEAR! Deuteronomy 26:12, “…tithing all the tithes of your increase the
THIRD YEAR, which is the YEAR of TITHING…” Amos 4:4-6, “Bring your sacrifices every morning, your tithes every THREE YEARS...brag about your freewill offerings— boast about them...for this is what you love to do,… yet you have NOT returned to me," declares the LORD...

2) Scripture identifies true congregational order and clarifies there is only ONE CHURCH, ONE head of the Church, and ONE titled and called teacher/rabbi/pastor (Yahshua/Jesus), and we as His followers are to come together as BRETHREN, fellow laborers and co-workers, who are ALL permitted to minister one to another in the assembly or congregation.

Cultural Christianity perpetuates the Nicolatian doctrine Yahshua hates, the FRAUD of a Clergy/Lay system, where a man is labeled as the head and called/addressed “teacher” or “pastor”. Often, these preeminent individuals are taught to believe they are the ‘CEO’ of the church rather than the servant of all as Scripture commands all 8 gifts of service to operate, (1 Corinthians 12:28). In some churches, a small select group of congregational members are also considered spiritual enough to minister to the non-ministers or laity of the church. The appointed leader “head” (not Christ) and few select individuals exercise spiritual authority and dominance over the “laity” or  “lay” people.

Proper Congregational Order - Ephesians 5:23, … “Christ is the HEAD of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.” Matthew 23:8, Yahshua said, “But you are NOT to be called teacher (Rabbi/Pastor/Preacher/Priest/Father), for you have ONE Teacher and you are ALL BROTHERS.” 1 Corinthians 14:27-30, What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, EACH OF YOU has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. EVERYTHING must be done so that the church may be built up. If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—SHOULD speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret. If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and to God. Two or three prophets SHOULD speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.  And if a revelation comes to
SOMEONE WHO IS SITTING DOWN, the first speaker should STOP. For YOU CAN ALL PROPHECY in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.

3) Scriptures reveal Yahsua’s desire for believers to congregate as a house of prayer and to be wholly pleasing and honorable to the Lord.

Cultural Christianity gathers with the goal to assemble as many people as possible, to be financially prosperous, to be acceptable to the world and to please the people (flesh). Examples include Chrislam, hyper-grace, seeker-friendly, culturally accommodating, prosperity driven, non-discriminant all-inclusive churches.

Ephesians 5:10, "...find out what pleases the Lord." Colossians 1:10, "...live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him..." Matthew 21:13, Yahshua/Jesus said,
“My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Galatians 1:10, For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 1Thessalonians 2:4 , “… we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, NOT as pleasing men, but GOD who tests our hearts.” John 5:44, Yahshua/Jesus asked, “How can ye believe, which receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that comes from God only?”
 
4) Scripture reveals The Lord’s order for the congregation and exclusively requires and confirms that only MALES are Biblically qualified to SERVE the congregation in the servant leadership roles of Elders, Deacons and Bishops.

Cultural Christians ignore Biblical traditions and Scriptural requirements and declare Bible Scripture to be outdated and often appoint women to these offices. They blindly accept unqualified congregational leaders married to more than one woman and/or whose family members are uncontrollable or who live unchecked lives of lawlessness.

1Timothy 3:12, Titus 1:5-7,
Elders, Deacons and Bishops “...must “be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.” 1 Corinthians 14:34-38, Women should remain silent in the churches. They are NOT allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church. Or did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached? If anyone thinks they are a prophet or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the LORD’S COMMAND. But if anyone ignores this, they will themselves be ignored. 1Timothy 2:12, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she MUST be quiet.” 2Thessalonians 2:5, “Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” 1Corinthians 11:2, Hold to “the traditions just as I passed them on to you.”

People, we should already know Abba’s DIRECTION for in-house ministry -v- outhouse ministry as Bible Scripture instructs.

1 Corinthians 5:12-13, What business is it of mine to JUDGE those OUTSIDE the church? Are YOU not to judge those INSIDE? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”

1 Corinthians 5:9-13, I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing to you that you must NOT associate with anyone who CLAIMS TO BE A BROTHER OR A SISTER but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

Ezekiel 22:26, Her priests do violence to my law and profane my holy things; they do not distinguish between the holy and the common; they teach that there is no difference between the unclean and the clean

Malachi 2, You have wearied the Lord with YOUR WORDS. “How have we wearied him?” you ask. By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord, and he is pleased with them”.

False prophets and carnally minded watchmen do not distinguish between their words and the Lord’s word, and they do not distinguish between the flesh and the Holy Spirit. And many false teachers and false preachers have now invaded America’s Christianity, usurped authority and turned the congregation into an OUTHOUSE.

Furthermore, as Jude 1:4 has exposed, they have turned
“the grace of our God into lasciviousness”.

John 4:21&23, Yahshua/Jesus said, “…the hour comes, when you shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. But the hour comes, and now is, when theTRUE WORSHIPPERS shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him.”


Note: All of the true followers of Yahshua/Jesus are being corrected and perfected, which means we are also learning His word and His will more clearly. Stay humble and repentant. May the Lord continue to grow you up in all wisdom and knowledge of Himself and His ways.

FUTURE World Government

JESUS said, "And as ye go, preach, saying, The (GOVERNMENT) of Heaven is at hand." (Matthew 10:7)

YES, Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords, who will soon return to establish His Government!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the GOVERNMENT shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The governments of this world are become the Governments of our Lord, and of his Christ; and HE shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)

REVELATION 19:11-21, "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He does JUDGE and MAKE WAR.

"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God (JESUS). And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

"And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

(A GREAT WAR!) "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against HIM (Jesus) that sat on the horse, and against HIS army. And the beast (the satan empowered, final one-world Government of man) was taken, and with him the false prophet (one-world false religion) that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

"And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

IT
'S WAR ON JESUS' FIRST DAY BACK ON EARTH... 1,000 YEAR REIGN BEGINS!

"For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle… Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall STAND on the Mount of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward. And the valley of my mountains shall be stopped up, for the valley of the mountains shall touch the side of it; and you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzzi′ah king of Judah. Then the Lord your God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

"On that day there shall be neither cold nor frost. And there shall be continuous day (it is known to the Lord), not day and not night, for at evening time there shall be light.

"On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea; it shall continue in summer as in winter.

"And the Lord will become king over all the earth; on that day the Lord will be one and his name one.

"The whole land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But Jerusalem shall remain aloft upon its site from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Han′anel to the king’s wine presses. And it shall be inhabited, for there shall be no more curse; Jerusalem shall dwell in security.

"And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will smite all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet, their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths. And on that day a great panic from the Lord shall fall on them, so that each will lay hold on the hand of his fellow, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other; even Judah will fight against Jerusalem. And the wealth of all the nations round about shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. And a plague like this plague shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the asses, and whatever beasts may be in those camps.

"Then every one that survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of booths (Feast of Tabernacles/SUKKOT). And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, there will be no rain upon them." ( ZECHARIAH 14:1-17 )

WARNING! The following article regarding Tongues of Men and Angels reveals Bible Scriptures that may cause you to be shunned, hated and/or rejected by Americanized Christians. (Matt. 10:21 & John 16:2
)

Tongues of Men and Angels: What MUST We Do?
by Jonathan Israel

In 1988, a little over eight years after I repented of my sinful life and began attempting to follow Yahshua/Jesus as my Lord, I received the Holy Spirit in a powerful way that liberated me and empowered me to begin worshiping, glorifying and honoring the Lord with all my heart, mind and strength. At that time, I also received gifts of the Holy Spirit, including a prayer language, which Scriptures reveals is a gift called “tongues”. WARNING: some falsely claim you are not saved or do NOT have the Holy Spirit inside if you do not have the Holy Spirit gift to speak in tongues.

But the Lord has revealed what true believers MUST have, and it will surprise many to learn they are disqualified and in great danger without it.


1 Timothy 1:3, “…command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer …”

When did the Holy Spirit first empower true believers with the gift of speaking in tongues?

Acts 2:5-12, “And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans?  And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”

Does the Lord include gift of tongues among the spiritual gifts He gives His followers?

1 Corinthians 12:4-11, “There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

Do ALL true believers speak with the spiritual gift of tongues?

1 Corinthians 12:27-31, “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a MORE EXCELLENT way.”

Since not every individual true believer speaks in the Holy Spirit’s gift of tongues, what is the more EXCELLENT way?

1 Corinthians 13:1-3, "Though I speak with the tongues of MEN and of ANGELS, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing."

How do both ‘love’ and speaking in ‘tongues’ reconcile?

1 Corinthians 14, 1-5, “PURSUE love, and DESIRE spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification.”

Since we are instructed to DESIRE Holy Spirit gifts, such as speaking in tongues, clearly not all true believers MUST speak in tongues as some falsely proclaim. So how can we know we are truly glorifying the Lord and are true DISCIPLES of Yahshua/Jesus?

John 15:18, "By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples."

What fruit MUST we bear?

Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

So, Bible Scripture confirms it is the FRUITS of the Holy Spirit that we MUST bring forth if we are those who truly honor our Abba in Heaven. Okay, does Yahshua identify spiritual fruit as the EVIDENCE of a true believer?

Yahshua said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who ABIDES in Me, and I in him, BEARS much FRUIT; for without Me you can do nothing.”

John 15:16, Yahshua also said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and BEAR FRUIT, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."

Why is it a MUST to bear fruit? What if we do NOT bear fruits of the Holy Spirit?

John 15:2,  Yahsua said, “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;…”

Matthew 3:10, Yahshua said, “And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."

Note: To learn more about origin of Spiritual gifts and Spiritual fruit, see “Holy Spirit” article in the list of Scripture topics located in the third column from the left on ConnectionMagazine.org homepage.

************

It is NOT THE LACK of a Gift From The Holy Spirit That Disqualifies a Believer, It is The Lack of Fruit of The Holy Spirit.

************

What MUST You Do?

JOHN 3:3-7, Yahshua/Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Yahshua answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the SPIRIT, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the SPIRIT is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You MUST be born again.’

"STORM COMING" FRANKLIN GRAHAM
PREPS USA/ CHRISTIANS FOR MARTYRDOM


The following bold message of warning is in response to the Islamic murder (beheadings) of 21 Christians, and was posted on Facebook on 2/16/15, by Evangelist Franklin Graham.

The militant Islamic terrorist group ISIS has released a video called A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATION OF THE CROSS showing the beheadings of the 21 Egyptian Christians who had been kidnapped in Libya.

“Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians?” said Graham. “Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world? As we mourn with the families of those 21 martyrs, we’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States,” warned Graham.

“If this concerns you like it does me, share this,” he said. “The storm is coming.”

Editor's note: The Holy Bible also warns Christians that a great end of the age time of tribulation would come when many would be burned or beheaded for their faith.

Revelation 20:4 acknowledges the intense martydom that will soon take place in this world, "...And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God."

Daniel 11:33 mentions several types of persecution to befall many end of the age bold messengers of the Lord, "Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered."

Church, now is the time to prepare our hearts and the hearts of the children, to endure to the end and to be overcomers; to be like the wise virgins who were prepared to endure the darkness of the hour. Yes, it's dark and it's going to get much darker.

Isaiah 60:2, "For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee."

Revelation 20:11 confirms that we gain the victory over satan in the end, "...they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."

Are you ready?

Message for Lawless Christians
Much tribulation is coming to American Christianity and only a remnant will be saved. Are you living a holy, perfect and pleasing life before the Lord? Or are you living a lawless Christian lifestyle?

Our God who is with us, Salvation the Annointed One has said...
Matthew 7:22-23, Many will say...‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Hosea 4:6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...you have forgotten the law of your God...

1 Timothy 1:9-10, ...(Moses') law is...made for...the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners...and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine...

Unfortunately, many try to be...

1 Timothy 1:7, ...teachers of...(Moses') law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.

1 Timothy 1:8, ...we know that...(Moses') law is good if one uses it lawfully...

And that the Righteous are to...

Romans 3:31, ...establish (Moses') law.

However, those who...

Galatians 5:18 ...are led by the Spirit...are not under...(Moses') law.

They are under the...

James 1:25, ...law of liberty...

Romans 3:27, ...the law of faith.

Romans 8:2-4, ...the law of the Spirit...

And most importantly...

Romans 8:7, ...the law of God...

Which is...

Hebrews 8:9, ...in their mind, and written...in their hearts...

They...

2 Corinthians 10:5, ...bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of The Messiah...

Those who are under the laws of liberty, faith, Spirit and God are held to even higher standards than Moses' law!

Mark 10:4, ...“Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.”

Mark 10:11-12, (Our Lord, Salvation, The Annointed One said)...“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

Matthew 5:27-28, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But ( God With Us, Salvation the Annointed One says) whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

You have heard it said to those of old, 'You shall not murder' but our Lord, Salvation God With Us says to you...

1 John 3:15, Whoever hates his brother is a murderer...

Mark 7:21-23, “...from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

Warning, you who...

Galatians 5:13, ...have been called to liberty...do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh...

Instead...

Romans 12:2, ...prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The fact is...

Romans 14:23, ...whatever is not from faith is sin.

Proverbs 16:2, All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the Lord evaluates the motives.

Romans 14:5, ...let each be fully convinced in his own mind.

Luke 16:15, ...God knows your heart...

Just Beware...

Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Romans 8:7-8, ...the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

If you are...

Romans 14:1, ...weak in the faith...

1 Peter 2:1-2, ...as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby...

Just keep in mind, at some point you must...

Ephesians 4:15, ...grow up...

And become...

1 Corinthians 14:20, ...mature.

1 Timothy 4:15, ...that your progress may be evident to all.

The goal is to...

Hebrews 6:1, ...go on to perfection...

And to...

1 John 3:22, ...do those things that are pleasing in (Gods) sight.

Remember...

Romans 2:15, ...(Our) conscience (will) bear witness...between (our) thoughts, accusing or else excusing (us)...

Are you lawless?

Expats in Panama:
Notes from the Wilderness, Part 2

by Jonathan Israel

This is part 2 in a series of notes from the wilderness, which is meant to provide insight for those prayerfully considering leaving America as it continues morphing into Daughter Babylon. This article features information regarding the cost of living in Panama including housing, food, transportation and more.

Obviously, Panama is not the USA, but those coming from big cities such as New York, Chicago and L.A. will experience a lower cost of living here, much like they would moving to mid or small town America.

Restaurants

For the most part, it would be better to eat at home, but there are independent very reasonably priced hamburger joints that are hit-or-miss on flavor, and a few American run spots around town that feature familiar American entrees. Of course, American restaurant chains such as Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut and Fridays are just a car ride away.

Retail Stores

You have access to department stores, furniture stores and computer stores, but often the prices on these items can be a bit higher due to import fees. For example, my new ASUS laptop purchased here in Panama costs $900, but a comparable model in the US is only $700.. Of course, you can often save money if you’re patient, and order from the US by mail for the additional cost of international shipping.

Grocery Stores

Grocery stores are stocked with many of the same foods and brands that you have in the US, but not all, and prices are just as high in most cases. However, things like ground beef and some produce and honey are half the price currently charged in the US. Additionally, we are told that fish is also lower priced here, but fish served at an American run restaurant here can be pricey.

Taxi Service

If you don’t speak Spanish, it’s not easy getting door to door taxi service; however, taxis are plenteous and you can hail a cab on the street just as quick for sixty cents per person, for a quick ride a few miles in or out of town. Be advised; however, the driver often stops to pick up others, so you may have a car full of people by the time you reach your destination. A 40-minute taxi ride going 30 to 35 miles down the road costs around $35..

Auto Sales

Cars, trucks and SUV’s can be purchased new or used, but at slightly higher rates due to import fees. You can hardly go anywhere without seeing “Se Vende” (For Sale) on a vehicle.

Housing

For those who are humble or on a limited budget, you can rent a furnished one-bedroom cabana for $200 to $300 per month; a furnished 2-bedroom house or duplex for $350 to $450 per month; or a small brand new 3-bedroom unfurnished house for $450 per month.

For those who desire middleclass American styled housing, a larger 2-bedroom furnished house with property or 2-bedroom furnished condo can be rented for $750 per month on average.

Meanwhile, those who want to live in larger and more modern newer 3 or 4 bedroom homes will pay $1100 to $1400 per month for a dwelling that would easily garner twice the price in the USA.

Finally, supply and demand is in favor of renters of the million-dollar homes, which rent as low as $2000 to $2500 per month since there are simply not many renters in Panama willing to pay $8,000 or $10,000 per month.

Leaving Babylon America

For many, moving to Panama, or any other country for that matter, seems to be filled with insurmountable obstacles, namely the costs.

Yes, punishments are coming to America, but if you are not being led by the Lord to depart the USA in faith, then stay in faith. But you must understand, not all have faith and not all have ears to hear. There is only a remnant, which the Lord is leading by faith. If the Lord leads, He meets the needs. Where Abba guides, He provides.

Lesson from the Jews

When the call went out for two decades, since the Balfour Declaration in 1917, inviting and compelling the Jews in Europe to leave and return to Israel, only a small remnant responded. While some six-million Jewish men, women and children who remained in Europe were captured and killed by the Nazi Germans for their faith, there was only a remnant who departed in time. Sadly, less than a million Jews (reportedly 750,000 to 800,000) were living in Israel after World War 2, when Israel prophetically obtained nation status once again in 1948.

For many Jews, returning to the Lord’s covenant land of Israel was a financial impossibility to do on their own. It was only by uniting with friends and/or family members that a many of the Jews were able successfully flee the impending doom in Europe.

By coming together to form co-ops, called kibbutzim, the impossible became possible for many. Most kibbutzim were set up as working farms, where everyone pitched in and worked together for the success of all. As time went on, some kibbutzim included hotels and retail establishments. Currently, there are still over 250 of these farming communities in Israel.

Only the humble and unselfish with a mind to work can thrive in this type of co-op. In fact, we’ve met a young woman here in Panama who lives on a 10-acre farm, and she recently explained that her parents have a vision to see their farm become filled with followers of the Lord working together in unity and true fellowship.

Be Encouraged

Obviously, Panama is not your only option for residency outside of the US; there are many countries to consider that will welcome you. In fact, Americans can live in a plethora of nations as a visitor for up to two years before making a decision to obtain permanent residency. You will not have lived in all the nations of the world before the Lord has come.

Meanwhile, prayerfully consider leaving the US before the extreme persecution of Christians becomes the norm, and before the punishment of the Lord greatly humbles the land and His judgment purges the church. And never forget WHOSE you are.

Obviously, most Americans who claim to be followers of Jesus/Yahshua will stay in the land and be destroyed. I believe only one-third will survive the fall. After all, of the 9.5 million European Jews, only about 3-million Jews survived. According to the prophecy to the backslidden nation of Israel in Ezekiel 5:12, One-third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Set your eyes upon the Lord and His Kingdom and His righteousness!

Clearly, just departing from the USA does not guarantee safety or salvation, but the one who delights in the Lord and His ways, putting their trust in Jesus/Yahshua, will be eternally sheltered and saved. After all, Psalm 31:3 describes the Lord as a FORTRESS, “For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me.”

1 Peter 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims,…”

Philippian 3:20, “…our  citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ (Yahshua the Messiah),…”

Mark 16:15, Jesus/Yahshua said, “Go into ALL the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

WARNING! Because of sin and rebellion among the people of God, only a REMNANT will be saved! Only one-third will be REFINED!

Zechariah 13:9, I will bring the onethird through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

Catholocism’s Leader Accuses Jesus of FAILURE
Not only does the leader of the religion of Catholocism now say Jesus failed at the cross, he can’t even count to three. Can you count to three?
Prepared by Brian Israel

 
Jesus prophesied about His death, burial and resurrection...

John 10:17-18, Jesus said..."I
lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again."

Matthew 17:23,
Jesus said, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life.”

Matthew 12:40,
Jesus said, "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

Scripture explicitly defines what a day and a night is...

Genesis 1:4-5,
"...God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night..."

We know Jesus was crucified on...

John 19:14,
...the Preparation Day of the Passover...

Mark 15:42,
...when EVENING had come, because it was the (Passover) Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath (the first day of the Feast of Unleavened bread), Joseph of Arimathea...went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. Then he bought fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Jesus observed where He was laid.

Luke 23:56,
Then they returned and...rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.

Remember...

Luke 23:54,
That day was the (Passover) Preparation, and the Sabbath (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) drew near.

Matthew 27:62,
On the next day (the first day of the Feast of Unleavened  Bread), which followed the (Passover) Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate, saying, “Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise.’ Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come...and steal Him away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the first.” Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.” So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.

John 20:1&9,
Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. (Mary)...did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.

Fact check!

We know Jesus spent 3 lights and 3 darks in the grave and that He rose on the third day!

We also know Mary found the tomb empty Sunday morning, clearly before there was light out!

We also know Jesus was placed in the grave (heart of the earth) between evening and twilight obviously before the Feast of Unleavened Bread which was a Sabbath.

Now let's do the math...

Count Three Darks...
Wednesday nigh
t = 1st night
Thursday night = 2nd night
Friday night = 3rd night

Count Three Lights...
Thursday = 1st day
Friday = 2nd day
Saturday = 3rd day

The Answer...
Jesus ROSE on the weekly Sabbath (SATURDAY), before twilight, in the evening, fulfilling His prophecy that He would be in the grave three nights and three days yet rise on the third day! NOT THE FOURTH DAY!

FYI, there are weekly Sabbaths (every seventh day) and there are Sabbaths associated with festivals, which the Lord calls "My Festivals". The week Jesus was crucified there were two Sabbaths. For the math to compute Jesus would have been buried at the end of Passover day, the day before the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which is a Sabbath...

Remember...


Leviticus 23:5-7,
On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a (Sabbath) holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.

Don't believe the lie that fornicating Christianity is perpetrating! Friday night to Sunday morning only equals two nights (two darks) and one day (one light)!

WARNING to OBAMA and USA
At the beginning of August 2011, I published the following article containing Bible Scriptures about The Lord's timing to destroy Israel's enemies. The final full week that same month saw both an earthquake and a hurricane shake Washington DC within days of each other. Soon after this historical event, President Obama cancelled UN plans to divide Israel in September 2011. Afterwards, President Obama personally responded to me on more than one occasion regarding Israel. However, this fall, the UN, the Catholic church and President Obama all want to divide the Lord's Holy and covenanted land of Israel.

God of Creation
Ready to Destroy Israel’s Enemies


These are the words the LORD spoke concerning Israel and Judah: “This is what the LORD says: “‘Cries of fear are heard— terror, not peace. Ask and see: Can a man bear children? Then why do I see every strong man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale? How awful that day will be! No other will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it.
(Jeremiah 30:4-7)

Palestinian Jordanians  …“As for all my wicked neighbors who seize the inheritance I gave my people Israel, I will uproot them from their lands…if they learn well the ways of my people and swear by my name, saying, ‘As surely as the LORD lives’…then they will be established among my people. But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,” declares the LORD.
(Jeremiah 12:14-17)

Syria & Lebanon  …the LORD Almighty, says: “My people who live in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrians, who beat you with a rod and lift up a club against you, as Egypt did. Very soon my anger against you will end and my wrath will be directed to their destruction.” (Isaiah 10:24& 25)


USA & UN   “In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and… will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they… divided up my land.
(Joel 3:1&2)

“‘The LORD will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land. He will shout… against all who live on the earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; … “Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth.”
(Jeremiah 25:30-33)

“The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.
(Obadiah 1:15)

IRAN, Egypt & The World, The Lord Goid says, "…I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem."
(Zechariah 12:9)

TURKEY will be satan's throne (Rev. 2:13) as he leads whole world in attack against the Lord and land of Israel (the original teachings were that Russia was Gog and Magog; however, knowledge has increased in these latter days as the angel told Daniel would happen. Scholars place Magog in Turkey and Revelation 20:7-10, reveals the Gog and Magog attack unites entire world against Israel at END of the 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ/Yahshua the Messiah)  …When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. (Ezekiel 38:18)

This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths...(Zechariah 14:1)

…Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which (their King) will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Savior. (Jeremiah 23:6)

This is the word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.
(Zechariah 1:1-3)

Note: Israel does not need the U.S., which is not trustworthy due to behind the scenes Muslim Brotherhood - U.S. connection and security leaks. The Lord will help Israel.

Lord of the WINDS! God’s Arsenal Revealed
World to Change

Our Creator, the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, has revealed His arsenal prepared to fight battles and wars against a rich and powerful nation that rises up against Him before He returns. Expect great world change!


The Lord God asks, “Have you entered the storehouses of the SNOW or seen the storehouses of the HAIL, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle?” (Job 38:22&23)

“When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the WIND from his STOREHOUSES.” (Jeremiah 10:13 and 51:16)

The Lord has revealed to us these powerful weapons He uses to war against the nation that rises up against Him. Scorching winds of the Lord will dry up large bodies of fresh water. He will send stormy winds so powerful they will also stir up unprecedented destructive massive waves of the sea that will cover the land, drive missiles off course and thwart military plans.

Currently, the strongest naturally occurring wind speed on record is from a tropical cyclone in Australia. The 253 mph wind was recorded in Cyclone Olivia in Western Australia, in 1996.

Will the stormy winds of the Lord reach sustaining speeds of 300 mph or much greater speeds in order for the waves of the sea to cover the land?

Men’s hearts will fail them when they see the things that are coming upon the earth.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the WAVES ROARING; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:25&26)

“For (the Lord) commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves thereof.” (Psalm 107:25)

The Lord will also send great hailstones of ice that will fall upon men as an exceedingly great plague. The heaviest hail currently on record belongs to a 2.25-pound hailstone that fell in Bangladesh on April 14, 1986, according to Paul Hudspeth, a meteorologist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina.

Will the coming hailstorms include hundreds of thousands or millions of 2-pound hailstones at each event? Many Bible scholars estimate the prophesied hail will weigh as much as 100-pounds each.

“And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.” (Revelation 16:21)

“…Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;” (Psalm 148)

Warning to The Nation Rising Up Against Jesus and His Word

Jeremiah 50:25, ”The Lord has opened his arsenal and brought out the weapons of his wrath,..”

Jeremiah 51:1,”Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that DWELL in the midst of THEM THAT RISE UP AGAINST ME, a destroying wind;”

The United States is a land overrun with sin and transgressions, that has spawned an Americanized Christianity comprising of lukewarm compromisingly weak followers, and has also made the nations drunk with her maddening wine; abortion, pornography, drugs, homosexuality, violence and an embrace of all that is vile and evil.

Meanwhile, the USA has now risen up against our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) by outlawing the Bible and prayer in public schools, defiling the Lord’s Holy Covenant of marriage, and implementing a policy of coercive threats against the sovereign nation of Israel to divide it’s God-ordained, covenanted land with the Muslim Brotherhood terror puppet, Palestinian Hamas.

According to Jeremiah 51:1, the coming punishment of God's war against the USA will fall on those who DWELL in the land as well. Prayerfully make plans to leave; allow the Holy Spirit to lead you out by faith. (See Revelation 18:4)

“Remember this and consider, recall it to mind, you transgressors, 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 not yet done,…” (Isaiah 46:8-10)

“Fear ye not me? says the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.

“Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that gives rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserves unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withheld good things from you.” (Jeremiah 5:22-25)

Let All God’s Repentant People Rejoice During the Coming Tumult and World Change!

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
Psalm 46:1-3

We Left The United States of Babylon
by Connection Magazine Editor
Jonathan Israel

This article reveals why we left America and what we’ve discovered in Panama. You’re reading part one of an ongoing Connection Magazine exclusive featuring practical insights, warnings, advice and encouragement from Central America.

Many Americans are beginning to awaken to the dangerous fall of the USA as it morphs into a kingdom opposed to all that is true and right.

The following events have taken place in just the two weeks we’ve been gone; the Hindu goddess of DARKNESS and DESTRUCTION has been featured on the New York Empire State Building, the US Government continues to back Planned Parenthood’s operation of killing babies after their operation of selling baby body parts was exposed, the Obama Administration now sides with the Islamic nation of Turkey in its attacks against Christian Kurds, the US has now covenanted to protect Iran against Israel, and a money loving heathen running for the office of US President has won the hearts of many Americanized Christians as their latest hope.

We have undoubtedly made the right decision to leave Babylonian America.

God is very patient and super kind, but He will NOT be mocked! His punishment will come to the US and has already begun by the removing of His hand of provision and protection. Droughts, famines, and pestilence along with the present threat of nuclear war are now upon America in increasing measure of reality. Greater frequency and greater intensity of judgments for her sins are on the way.  Watch as crops, animals and man diminish from the land.

Ezekiel 14:13, “Son of man, when the land sins against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:…”

A time of unsealed revelations is here! (see Daniel 12:4)

My wife and I were awakened by the Lord five years ago, and began receiving revelation knowledge and understanding of Jesus’ (Yahshua’s) plans in greater measure than in all our prior 30 years of Bible study and prayer.

The description of Daughter Babylon in Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51, describes current day America more than any other nation in modern history. Regardless of whether or not you believe that the USA has fallen and is now rising as Daughter Babylon, does not change the way that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob deals with such a covenant breaking nation found to be opposing Him and destroying His heritage.

Jeremiah 51:6, "Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord’s vengeance; HE will repay her what she deserves."

The USA has outlawed prayer and the Bible in public schools, where they now indoctrinate children with anti-Christ and atheistic doctrines.

America continues sanctioning the murder of over one million babies per year (now including the sale of baby body parts), and actively attacks the God ordained family unit of a mother and father, including their right to raise their children according to God’s word and ways.

California now forces vaccinations on children and is prepping to legalize forced vaccinations on adults with a non-compliance penalty of imprisonment. This microcosm testing in California paves the way for forced vaccinations throughout the entire nation, to say nothing of US Government plans to place a microchip in every American’s body.

America’s courts increasingly attacks Christian owned businesses for not supporting homosexuality, and have recently made laws redefining God’s covenant of marriage and His covenant land of Israel.

The fast morphing United Kingdom of America is just getting started and the persecution of Bible believing followers of Yahshua will increase to plundering and imprisonment, and for some it will end in death. Please consider what happened to the Jews in the '30's and '40's.

The Lord invites His followers, who have ears to hear, to flee His wrath that is coming upon the USA (Jeremiah 50:8-10). And for those who need further encouragement to leave their comfort zone, true followers of the Lord have been invited to “go” into all the nations to preach the Gospel of Yahshua, and then the end will come (Mark 16:15,  Matthew 24:14).

Meanwhile, carnally minded voices will encourage you to stay in the corrupt evil land of the rich and powerful, making unbiblical statements of doubt and unbelief such as “it does not make sense (to leave)”, “I don’t understand it”,  “it’s not practical (to leave)”.

Interestingly, once the Biblically illiterate openly confess their ignorance, they proceed to pretend to have the answer by spouting ideas, opinions and philosophies as to why someone should stay in the USA. They follow up their ignorance by attacking (with words of false predictions of trouble) those who are led by the Lord to flee the fallen nation of evil that opposes the Lord and destroys His heritage.

You need to walk by faith. If the Lord is not leading you to go by faith, is He leading you to stay by faith?

Don’t leave the US if you do not have His leading, unction and faith to go. Conversely, do not stay without faith either. You need to know His will and only He can give you the faith and direction you need by His Holy Spirit.

Ultimately, Jesus (Yahshua) is your fortress and strong tower. He is to be your shelter and refuge above all. And when He is, you will then be able to follow Him anywhere He leads, and to stand where He leads you to stand. Never put your trust in nations or worldly leaders to save you. Follow Yahshua by faith and you will be in His perfect will. And if your move of faith is not the right one, He is faithful and true to redirect your steps.

We’ve recently been redirected to leave the US for a second time. After spending a terribly dry and unfruitful two years back in the USA, my wife Chris and I have quickly discovered God’s favor and blessings, once again, in the two short weeks we’ve been here in Panama.

Watch for future Connection Magazine Prophecy posts as I hope to be able to share practical insights of expatriating as well reveal the blessings, wisdom and knowledge of following the Lord by faith out of our comfort zone and into the end time harvest.

Lord willing, I will share with you the awesome and great things Yahshua is doing here in Panama among believers, and I am compelled to be forthcoming and also warn you about the works that satan is doing here in the name of Christianity.

August 2015
WRATH of GOD is Coming to America
God has not appointed Christians to wrath, but contrary to false teachings, many Christians will face God's wrath along with sinners for the following reasons;

Romans 2:5-11,
...because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism.

Colossians 3:5,
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is IDOLATRY. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

Ephesians 5:3-6,
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.

Psalm 7:11, God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day.

The things that befell them served as examples…

(1 Corinthians 10:3-11,
For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their BODIES WERE SCATTERED in the wilderness. Now these things became OUR EXAMPLES, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer. Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for OUR admonition, upon whom the ENDS OF THE AGES have come.)

Jesus rescues us from WRATH if we repent and turn from sin.

1 Thessalonians 5:9, For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:36, Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

1 Thessalonian 1:9-10, “…how you turned to God from IDOLS (sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is IDOLATRY) to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.

Americanized Christianity’s Lawlessness Ended Christian America

Jonathan Cahn, the Bible teacher and author (The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah) who started warning nine years ago that America was facing the judgment of God if it did not reject secularism and return to its Judeo-Christian roots, says the June 26 Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage in all 50 states marks the formal end to Christian America.

“In the last days Christianity will continue to break into two,” said Cahn. “There will be the apostate false church and that which remains true to the Gospel and a biblical worldview.  The true Church will boldly speak the truth on moral issues, as well as embrace Israel and support the Jewish people at a time when the rest of the world sees Israel as the enemy.

“This new period of total lawlessness and apostasy in which whole Christian denominations are falling in line with the world’s changing view of marriage, is only the latest symptom that the world and the (true) Church are racing in different directions.”

Why Historic Level of Christian Persecution?
In January, 2015, Open Doors USA released a report declaring that Christian persecution has reached historical levels in 2014. With the United States' unrelenting attacks against God’s Covenant of marriage and His Covenanted land of Israel, the worst is on the horizon.

Although Christian-majority nations are experiencing unprecedented levels of discrimination and oppression, including the USA, Muslim extremism is currently the primary driver of Christian persecution in 40 of the top 50 nations listed.

Open Doors points out, every month 322 Christians are killed for their faith, 214 Christian churches and properties are destroyed, and 772 forms of violence are committed against Christians around the world.

Todd Nettleton, a spokesman for Voice of the Martyrs, told RNS news service, “Even where moderate Islamic states offer peace — and that is rare — they (Christians) almost never have freedom to practice their faith and are often marked for death.”

Christian Persecution’s Slow and Steady Rise in America

The USA has outlawed prayer and the Bible in public schools; recently escalated its attack against Christians in the military; unrelentingly, attacks God’s Covenant land of Israel by coercing the Jewish nation to divide the holy land with the Muslim Brotherhood terror group, Palestinian Hamas; and now attempts to defile God’s Covenant of marriage by redefining marriage in the Supreme Court next month.

Regarding America’s attack against God’s marriage Covenant, former Governor and current US Presidential Candidate, Mike Huckabee warned, "we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity."

Huckabee prophesied that more perilous times lie ahead for Christians in America. 
"It's not simply going to be a church's tax exempt status is threatened," he warned, "But more importantly… criminal charges for a person who defies the new government norm, a new legal norm."

We’ve Been Warned!

In Matthew 24, Jesus warned His followers that the rise of Christian persecution would be a sign of the end of the age, and before His return to earth to overthrow the 10 kingdoms of the final, one-world beast government and to establish His Kingdom on the earth. (also see Daniel 2:44)

Today, Christians are persecuted more than any other religion, and at historic levels. The following Bible Scriptures contain answers to the mystery of end-time persecution of those who declare righteousness and follow Jesus (Yahshua ha’Mashiach).

You Don’t Belong to World

Philippians 3:20-21, But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”

1 Peter 1:17, …live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.

The World Hates Jesus

John 15:18-21, Jesus said, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also."

Luke 6:22, Jesus said, “Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.”

1 John 3:13-16, "Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you.  We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters."

The World Rejects Righteousness

Matthew 5:10-12, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."


End of the Age Persecution of Followers of Jesus

Matthew 24:7-13, Regarding the end of time and His return to earth, Jesus told His followers, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

Revelation 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

(Revelation 13:7-10) “...It was given unto him (the Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” 

(Daniel 12:6&7)  “...How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?” Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

More Followers of Jesus Killed After 5th Seal Opened

(Revelation 6:9-11) “When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.”

Luke 12:4-5, Jesus said, “And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he has killed has power to cast into hell; yes, I say unto you, Fear him.”

Criminalization of Christianity in America
Former Governor Mike Huckabee warns Christians will be criminalized for preaching Biblical truth about marriage. US Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton confirms plan to outlaw opposing religious views in America.

In light of the US Supreme Court flagging that they will soon legislate from the bench to redefine God's holy Covenant of marriage; thereby, making it legal for homosexuals to trample God's Covenant, there is an alarm ringing out to America's Christian community, to stand up for Jesus and His word before doing so becomes illegal.

"Christian convictions are under attack as never before," said former Governor Mike Huckabee, "we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity."

At a recent conference on April 23rd, arranged by the Family Research Council (FRC), Huckabee and other pastors discussed how homosexuality as a "civil right" and same sex marriage will affect the future for Christians in America.

Huckabee strongly exhorted and prophesied of perilous times ahead for American Christians. "It's not simply going to be a church's tax exempt status is threatened," he warned, "But more importantly… criminal charges for a person who defies the new government norm, a new legal norm."

A new legal norm!

Thanks to recent statements by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, we now have a glimpse at godless plans for a new legal norm, a new strategy to outlaw Christian beliefs in America.

At the recent 6th annual Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton delivered the keynote address, which called for new laws to change and challenge religious beliefs in America.

Referring to protecting a woman's right to murder the baby in her womb, Hillary explained, "Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed."

Fully understand what is headed your way!

The goal of anti-Christ government is to protect mankind's newest laws legalizing the abortion of babies, and laws giving legal permission allowing homosexuals to violate God's holy Covenant of marriage, by setting up additional laws that will outlaw anyone who disagrees with or fails to support those anti-Biblical, anti-Christian laws. Soon, obeying God will be outlawed in America.

Liberty Council Chairman Matt Staver warned that redefining marriage for homosexuals signals "the beginning of the end of Western Civilization."

Are you willing to make a stand for truth at all cost!

Huckabee appeals to Christian leaders in America "not to give up on marriage, but help the congregation understand why it is the foundation of our civilization, and why that our defense of Biblical marriage is something that is not an option for Christian believers."

Yes, persecution of Christians is on the rise in the USA. But unlike our Arab brethren who follow Jesus in the Middle East and North Africa, "you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood." (Hebrews 12:4)

Yes! God is calling you to suffer persecution for standing in agreement with Jesus and His word.

1 Peter 4:1-4, Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.

You're blessed!

Matthew 5:11, Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Suffering rejection for the Lord and His word is evidence of who we belong to and where we're headed.

Romans 8:17, Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

2 Corinnthians 1:5, For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

Those who, like Apostle Paul, are strongly rooted in the truth of God's word and fellowship of Jesus, will endure the persecution.

2 Corinthians 12:10, That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Timothy 3:12, Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Philippians 1:29, For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him,…"

1 Peter 2:21, To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

1 Peter 5:10, And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

Great falling away is coming!

Matthew 13:21, But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

2 Thesalonians 2:3

God is Speaking!
Is it true that followers of Jesus are hearing from the Lord in these times we're in?

Hebrews 3:15, "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."

Deuteronomy 4:12, "...the Lord spoke to (the Israelites) out of the fire. (They) heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice."

Deuteronomy 5:24, (The Israelites proclaimed), "The Lord our God has shown us his glory and his majesty, and we have heard his voice from the fire. Today we have seen that a person can live even if God speaks with them."

Numbers 7:8-9, "When Moses entered the tent of meeting to speak with the Lord, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law. In this way the Lord spoke to him."

Acts 9:3-5, As (Saul) neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" "Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied.

How do you know if you're hearing from the Holy Spirit of the Lord God?

Romans 10:17, "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ."

John 8:47, Jesus said, "Whoever belongs to God hears what God says."

John 10:5, "...they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice."

Ask and You Will Receive!

Colossians 1:9, "...ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives..."

John 16:13, JESUS said, "…when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you THINGS TO COME."

Be Warned...

Matthew 12:32, "Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come."

1 Thessalonians 5:19, "Do not quench the Spirit."

We Hope and Pray You Have Ears To Hear...

John 10:27, Jesus said, "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."

Revelation 3:20, Jesus said, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me."

Editor's note; You know those Christians who say 'beware of those who hear from God', well, we are warning you now to beware of those who say 'beware of those who hear from God.' Obviously they admit they're NOT hearing from the Lord.

The Prophetic Day of Purim
The evening of March 5, 2015, ushered in the prophetic Festival of Purim. Is another prophetic echo of the annual Biblical holy-day of Purim about to happen during our lifetime? Since Purim is a time when the tables are turned on Israel’s enemies, are we about to see Iran hit with nukes?

The Biblical festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia (Iran) from Haman's plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.”

Purim is a reminder to the Jewish people that in every generation, there are those who rise up to destroy them.

Many have noted the echoes of Purim in the Nuremberg war crime trials. In the Bible’s Book of Esther, Haman's ten sons were hanged; in 1946, ten of Hitler's top associates were put to death by hanging for their war crimes (including the crime of murdering 6 million Jews). One of the men seems to have been aware of the parallel: on the way to the gallows, Julius Streicher shouted "Purim Fest 1946!"
(see Esther 9:13)

Another echo of Purim is found in the Soviet Union a few years later. In early 1953, Stalin was planning to deport most of the Jews in the Soviet Union to Siberia, but just before his plans came to fruition, he suffered a stroke and died a few days later. He suffered that stroke on the night of March 1, 1953: the night after Purim (note: Jewish days end at sunset; you will see March 1 on the calendar as Purim). The plan to deport Jews was not carried out.

(courtesy jewfaq.org /holiday9.htm)

Editor’s note: As this article is being prepared on the eve of Purim, unconfirmed news reports out of Iran today, declare Iran's spiritual leader, Ali Khamenei, 76-years-old, was rushed to hospital urgently in Tehran and was hospitalized in serious condition after some body systems collapsed. Khamenei reportedly underwent surgery and his condition is critical.

Will the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob deliver the people of Israel once again? You bet! Is the annual festival of Purim a sign that Iran’s own judgment will eventually turn back upon their land? No doubt about it!

If Iran stays the course, an echo or shadow of the first Purim thousands of years ago indicates nuclear bombs will eventually be turned against the arrogant nation of Iran that has threatened to destroy Israel and introduce the world to its first nuclear war?

Obadiah 1:15, “The day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head."

"We are in trouble"
A message from Evangelist Franklin Graham

"Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has taken a lot of heat from the media for his remark that he's not sure if President Obama really loves America,” said Graham in a February 24th Facebook post.

“I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriages and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don't agree,” said the evangelist, who oversees the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

“Our nation is ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within,” he said. “We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”

February 2015
Think You're Saved?
Sadly, many Americanized Christians believe deceptive teachings and blatant error regarding the salvation of souls. The following Bible Scriptures reveal (the part of) God’s plan of salvation that many ignore to their own peril.

8:24, “...Who hopes for what they already have?

Hebrew 11:1, “FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen!”

Ephesians 2:8, “We are saved through FAITH…”

1Peter 1:8-9, “...the end of your FAITH (is) the salvation of your souls.”

1Peter 1:5, “…we are protected by the power of God through FAITH for a salvation ready to be revealed in the LAST TIME.”

Hebrews 10:38, (Jesus said) “…the just shall live by FAITH; But if anyone draws back, (His) soul (would have) no pleasure in him.”

1Timothy 4:1 “…the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the FAITH.

SADLY…

1Timothy 6:10, “…some (will stray) from the FAITH in their greediness, and (pierce) themselves through with many sorrows.”

1 Timothy 1:19, “…some (have allready)...suffered shipwreck...(their FAITH)...”

Hebrews 3:12, “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God...”

Luke 22:32, (Jesus) “...prayed for (us), that (our) FAITH should not fail...”

Hebrews 9:28, “...To those who eagerly wait for (Jesus) He will appear a second time, apart from sin, FOR SALVATION.”

WARNING...

Hebrew 6:4-6, “...it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.”

1Samuel 12:20-21, “…do not turn aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart. ...Do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot PROFIT OR DELIVER, for they are nothing.”

Yes, the following is true…

Galatians 2:16, “...by the works of the LAW no flesh shall be justified.”

However, according to the following Bible Scriptures, doing good WORKS by FAITH are an absolute must…

James 2:24&26, (You are) “...justified by WORKS, and not by faith only. ...Faith WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD...”

Hebrews 12:1, “...let us RUN with endurance the race that is set before us...”

1 Corinthians 9:24, “RUN in such a way that you may obtain (the prize).”

Most importantly...

Philippians 2:12, (WORK out your salvation with fear and trembling)

Luke 13:24, "STRIVE to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”

Hebrews 6:12, “...DO NOT BECOME SLUGGISH, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”

James 2:14, “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?”

James 2:21, “Was not Abraham our father JUSTIFIED by WORKS when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?”

James 2:25, “Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also JUSTIFIED by WORKS when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?”

James 2:22, “Do you see that FAITH was working together with (their) WORKS, and by WORKS faith was made perfect?”

James 2:26, “...the body without the spirit is dead, so FAITH WITHOUT WORKS is DEAD also.

Titus 1:16, (Do you) “...profess to know God, but in works (you) deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and DISQUALIFIED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK.”

Acts 26:20, “...repent, turn to God, and DO WORKS befitting repentance.”

Acts 10:35, “...whoever fears (Jesus) and WORKS RIGHTEOUSNESS is accepted by Him...”

Ephesians 2:10, “...we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for GOOD WORKS, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

Titus 2:14, (Jesus) “...gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for GOOD WORKS.”

Titus 3:8, “...those who...(believe) in God should be careful to maintain GOOD WORKS. These things are good and profitable to men.”

Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your GOOD WORKS and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Titus 3:14, “...learn to maintain GOOD WORKS, to meet urgent needs, that (you) may not be unfruitful.”

Titus 2:7, “...in all things (show) yourself to be a pattern of GOOD WORKS...”

2 Timothy 2:15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a WORKER who does not need to be ashamed...”

1 Corinthians 15:58, “...be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the WORK of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

Hebrew 6:10, “...God is not unjust to forget your WORK...”

Matthew 16: 27, “...the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then HE WILL REWARD EACH ONE ACCORDING TO HIS WORKS.”

1 Peter 1:17, “...the Father, who without partiality JUDGES ACCORDING to EACH ONES WORK, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear;…”

Hebrews 10:24, “...let us consider one another in order to stir up love and GOOD WORKS.”

But Remember...

Galatians 3:10, “For as many as are of the WORKS of the LAW are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the LAW, to do them."

1 Corinthians 3:13, “…each one's WORK will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's WORK, of WHAT SORT IT IS.”

(Good works by faith, or works of the law apart from faith in God’s grace? Sacrificial obedience or selfish ambition?)

Philippians 3:13-15, Paul said, “Brethren, I count NOT myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I PRESS toward the mark for the prize of the HIGH CALLING of GOD in CHRIST JESUS. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you are otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.”

2015: WHAT IS OUR MOST
CRITICAL NEED

by A.W. Tozer
The Following excerpt shines the light on the need to escape powerless government sanctioned 501c3 churches in America and go forth into the wilderness to follow Jesus fully. May 2015 be a year of deliverance for the true believer to break free from the bondage of Americanized and Government Controlled Christianity, and begin to do great exploits for the glory of the Lord according to His word.


"Surely we need a baptism of clear seeing if we are to escape the fate of Israel (and of every other religious body in history that forsook God). If not the greatest need, then surely one of the greatest is for the appearance of Christian leaders with prophetic vision.

"We desperately need seers who can see through the mist. Unless they come soon, it will be too late for this generation. And if they do come, we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the name of our worldly orthodoxy. But the cross is always the harbinger of the resurrection.

"Mere evangelism is not our present need. Evangelism does no more than extend religion, of whatever kind it may be. It gains acceptance for religion among larger numbers of people without giving much thought to the quality of that religion.

"The tragedy is that present-day evangelism accepts the degenerate form of (modern American) Christianity as the very religion of the apostles and busies itself with making converts to it with no questions asked.

"And all the time we are moving farther and farther from the New Testament pattern. We must have a new reformation. There must come a violent break with that irresponsible, amusement-mad, paganized pseudo-religion
which passes today for the faith of Christ and which is being spread all over the world by unspiritual men employing unscriptural methods to achieve their ends.

"When the Roman church apostatized, God brought about the Reformation. When the Reformation declined, God raised up the Moravians and the Wesleys. When these movements began to die, God raised up fundamentalism and the 'deeper life' groups. Now that these have almost without exception sold out to the world- what next?"

WISE INSTRUCTION

“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Luke 12:32-34)

D'Souza's AMERICA Deception

Beware America! The new documentary, AMERICA, is the D'Souza Deception. It basically implies that what Americans need to do to stop the nation's exponentially increasing decline and deterioration is to rise up in a REVOLUTION against the Obama Administration.

Sadly, by ignoring the nation's sins, in and out of the land, D'Souza makes the audience feel America is a great nation. He very conveniently skates around the true point of condemnation, that of America's pet sins of Abortion, Porn, Drugs, Sexual Infidelity and the attacks against God's Covenants.

Contrary to the message of D'Souza's demonically motivated documentary, the revolution America truly needs is called REPENTANCE. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people. (Proverbs 14:34)

The United States of America is currently striving and warring against the Lord God of all creation more than any other.

It is a nation that has the innocent blood of over 50-million babies flowing through it's sewers, streams, rivers and lakes, crying out for vengeance. It is a nation with the highest drug use and that also exports more porn around the globe than any other nation.

The USA has wickedly and arrogantly outlawed the Bible and prayer in it's public schools, while allowing books about Islam and devil worship. And now, it's attack against the Covenant word and people of the Lord has recently extended to it's military branches.

In it's pride and haughtiness, this nation has partnered with homosexuals in an assault against God's holy Covenant of Marriage that has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia.

In fact, with intensifying threatening language and an unconscionable partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood's puppet terror group, the Palestinian Hamas, the US has recently moved on the world stage to divide the land and capital of Israel, which the Lord has Covenanted to the House of Judah (Jews). Therefore, America is about to be cut in pieces; Zechariah 12:3, "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it."

No other single nation on earth has striven so hard against the Lord by attacking God's Covenants in such a fashion, making the USA the most wicked nation on planet earth today. (Jeremiah 50:24)

REPENT, AMERICA!

Destructions are determined and on the way; winds, war, drought, famine and disease. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.
(Proverbs 14:34)

FALL of AMERICA

Interestingly, I am hearing more Christian voices moan about the escalating fall of freedom and liberty in the USA. I hear them cry about the impending collapse of the economy, which may be just a few years away.

But where were these voices when homosexuals began attacking the God-ordained Covenant of Marriage, which has been exclusive to a male and female union for millennia? Where were the Christian voices when the murder of baby in mommy’s belly was legislated from the Supreme Court into law? Where were the Christian voices when prayer and the Bible were outlawed in the public schools of America?

You may weep and cry for the loss of your American freedom and prosperity. You may continue to blame President Obama, and other politicians for your personal loss of America’s benefits, but it is God you are crying against.

The fall of the US and it’s rise as daughter Babylon is the result of a lukewarm and backslidden church in America. When you had your freedom and prosperity to the full, you said “thank God for such a great nation”, all the while ignoring it’s murderous and anti-christ ways.

So weep and cry for that which you have loved more than the Lord and His Kingdom. This world and all that is in it will soon pass away, so weep and cry for your dying freedom and prosperity while you can.

This is the man to who the Lord will look, “Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” Isaiah 66:1-2

Jesus warned of His coming judgment against all sinners who refuse to repent and turn from their ways.

“Obama Abortion President” Declares James Dobson
Silent American Christians headed for divine judgment of national oppression.

To their own judgment, much of American Christianity stays silently apathetic and useless as the innocent blood of babies continues to flow through America’s sewers, rivers and lakes. Meanwhile, Christian radio minister, Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the family, confidently slammed America’s abortion trade at the National annual day of prayer on Capitol Hill last week.

More specifically, Dobson boldly condemned President Obama’s support of the murder of babies in their mother’s belly, saying that Obama could be considered the “Abortion President”.

Dobson clarified his position to Fox news anchor Megan Kelly by saying the President’s health policies show that "he is determined that people of faith and people of conscience are going to have to go along with it and be part of it (abortion)."

Essentially, all participating in Obamacare are required to pay for abortive remedies, such as the ‘morning after pill’. However, on April 17, a Federal judge granted an injunction for Dobson and his "Family Talk" radio show, blocking the Obamacare mandate that would have required the coverage of abortion-inducing dugs under their healthcare plan, despite religious objections to abortion.

Biblically defiant of Obama’s indifference to people of faith as well as the life of babies, Dobson said, “If you insist on us paying for abortion, we’re not going to go there.”

Wake Up Call as Judgment Approaches!

Meanwhile, regarding the murder of babies, all consenting and/or silent Americans, including those who call themselves Christians are in danger of God’s judgment against all who shed innocent blood. Therefore, the unprecedented oppression of Christians in the US is fast approaching.

Psalm 106:37-42, "Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

"Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

"Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against His people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. And He gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand."

Deuteronomy 21:9, So shall you put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of the Lord.

Repent and make a stand for the way, truth and life while it is yet day. Wrath and oppression (are) on the way!

Bunkerville Showdown Road to Rebellion?

In light of the US Government’s recent litmus test at Bunkerville, Nevada, seemingly to gauge public reaction to a federally armed takeover of state land and private property, many voices are foolishly sending the wrong message. A call to arms in preparation to fully resist the fallen but utterly desperate US Government, whose new executive orders have all but officially overthrown their centuries old Constitution.

Those calling for violent resistance fail to realize that the crescendoing oppression in the USA is of the Lord; a just response to an unrepentant nation of vile corruption, extremely gross sin and a backslidden people drunk on prosperity and self fulfillment.

Please understand that this message is a warning against deception. Beware of those voices that speak of the Constitution with greater admiration than the Bible; who praise the help of sheriffs above the help of Jesus; and who are more interested in fighting for this world rather than the Kingdom of Heaven.

These self appointed watchmen love this world so much that they’re willing to fight to the death to keep it. And they’ll gladly take all the cash, gold and silver you’re willing to send to them for 'the cause', as they live out whats left of the American dream.

Meanwhile, the left-right paradigm used to dupe Americans into catatonic obedience has also been further exposed, as both democratic and republican leaders remained aloof and kept their distance from the first showdown at Bunkerville. The false American Christian idol known as the Republican Party did not even field a Palin, Cruz, or a Paul during the testing of the American citizen’s resolve, which included armed Federal snipers readily prepared to shoot innocent, law-abiding patriots.

Am I Leading a Rebellion?

Two thousand years ago, as viciously deadly Roman Governors ruled via supreme military might in Jerusalem, Israel, Jesus never incited the people to rise up in a rebellion to fight for the land, the kingdom or the world. Never!

Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? (Luke 22:52)

Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people, and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him. Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death. (Luke 23:13-15)

Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My Kingdom is not from here.” John 18:36

Corrupt Government?

Yes, a deceptively evil government is on the rise in America, but which kingdom or Kingdom are you fighting for or against? (John 12:25)

The increasingly demonically possessed United States federal government is prepared to kill anyone for its continuity. Anyone! Are you willing to die to preserve a nation that kills babies, distributes porn to the world and consistently outlaws God’s word and ways? Really?

POWER to Obey God’s Commands
in a Fallen World at a Time it May Cost You Everything


Recent attacks by homosexuals against Duck Dynasty for quoting Bible Scripture is just a sign of the times we were warned would come. But things will get much worse.

Do you have the power to serve Jesus if it costed you everything? Do you have the power to serve Jesus unto the death?

As darkness covers the land and gross darkness the people, how can a true follower of Jesus obey The Lord God and be made perfect?

Matthew 24:7-14, Jesus said, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Matthew 22:36-40, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, You shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

So, what does it mean to love the Lord God with 100% heart, mind and soul? How can we truly love our neighbors as we love ourselves? Where do we find the power and ability to love the Lord enough to obey Him and serve Him?

Matthew 5:48 says, Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

So, where do we find the power to be perfect?

The Power of Faith in Jesus

1 Peter 1:3-5, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Philippeans 2, Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Ephesians 2:10, For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

1 John 4:12-16, No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

The Power of Grace

Romans 6:14, For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

Titis 2:11-14, For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

The Power of Hope

1 John 3:3-9, And every man that hath this HOPE in him purifies himself, even as He is pure. Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abides in him sins not: whosoever sins hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Romans 15:13, Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Power of the Holy Spirit!

Acts 1:8, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you...

John 3:5-7, Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, You must be born again.

Romans 8:1-9, There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

The Power of God’s Promises

1 Corinthians 1, I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Colossians 1:21-23, And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard,…

James 1:4, Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Philippeans 1:6, …he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 7:1, Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

Hebrews 13:20-21, Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Duck Dynasty Under Attack in USA for Similar Bible Scriptures as Those Listed Below - WILL THEY LEAVE A&E NOW!!!

Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.

Romans 1:26-27 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

1Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

GOD'S WRATH is COMING to CHURCH!

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. (Ephesians 5:3,6,7,11)

Reject FALSE Christianity
Scripture Commands You to Reject All Immorality and Sinful Corruption Hiding Behind The Name 'Christian' or 'Church'

I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he should be an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one.
(1 Cor. 5:11)

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord."
(2 Corinthians 6:14-17)

"Pursue...the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord"
(Heb. 12:14).

Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(1 Cor. 6:9-10)

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.
(2 Thessalonians 3:6)

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone: if he shall hear you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear you, then take with you one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto you as a heathen... (Matthew 18:15-17)

Immorality must be judged in the Church!

I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”
(1 Corinthians 5:9-13)

Netanyahu's PROPHETIC Speech at UN by David Lazarus

It is yet to be seen whether or not Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the UN gained any diplomatic or political ground for Israel. The message, however, was certainly ground-breaking. On the floor of the United Nations General Assembly, in front of the nations of the world, Netanyahu quoted from the Bible no fewer than five times. Surely more than any other speech in UN history.

“Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”

Calling up the fathers of faith, Israel’s Prime Minister pronounced to all that it is not the United Nations, nor the United States, nor a slipshod “two-state solution” that will establish the Jewish people in their ancestral homeland, but only the promises of the God of Israel as spoken in His word to their forefathers.

For Israel’s Prime Minister, it seems, God’s word is as politically correct and relevant today as ever.
“The Persian king Cyrus issued a famous edict in which he proclaimed the right of the Jews to return to the land of Israel and rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.”

In this brilliant admonition of Iran’s anti-Israel madness, Netanyahu pointed out that it was the Persian King Cyrus himself who supported the return of the Jewish people to Israel. How shrewd of the Prime Minister to remind the Iranian people that they themselves were instruments in God’s hands to fulfill His plan to establish the Jewish people in the Land of Israel. What a stunning rebuke of a regime that regularly threatens to destroy the Jewish state.

Like the prophets of old, Netanyahu directly confronted that ancient enemy of Israel calling upon them to abandon the path of fighting against God’s will concerning the Jewish people. Fighting against the purposes of God will only backfire in the end. For “presidents of Iran have come and gone,” said Netanyahu, “and (yet) we re-established our sovereign state in our ancestral homeland, the land of Israel.”

“A wolf in sheep’s clothing”

Apparently, Israel’s Jewish Prime Minister also reads the New Testament. This quote taken directly from the Gospel of Matthew suggests that the true nature of Israel’s foes will be revealed by their actions, as seen in the following verse in Jesus’ sermon: “By their fruits shall ye know them.”

After systematically recalling a long list of the new Iranian president Rouhani’s murders, killings and terror over the years, Netanyahu exposed the “brazen contrast, this extraordinary contradiction, between Rouhani’s words and Iran’s actions.”

One could almost picture Jesus himself over-turning the tables in the Temple as Netanyahu tried to shake the world’s leaders out of their apathy and wake them up to the imminent dangers of Iran’s deceitfulness. Abandoning all politically correct diplomacy, he stunned the weary diplomats in the General Assembly, exposing lie after lie of Iran’s deceptive “charm offensive” and denouncing it as a “rogue regime.”

“Israel will stand alone”

Asher Intrater, a Messianic Jewish leader in Israel, pointed out that when Netanyahu declared in his speech that if necessary Israel would stand alone to defend herself against the Iranian nuclear threat, the Prime Minister was referring to a prophecy in Deuteronomy 33:28.

The prophecy reads, “Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone…happy are you O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord.”

Constantly under pressure from the nations of the world, Israel’s prime minister seems to have internalized the profound truth that more than any other nation in the world Israel must trust in the Lord for her salvation.

“I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again”

Quoting from the Prophet Amos in English and then in Hebrew, Netanyahu made it clear to all who are listening that no threat, nuclear or otherwise, will remove Israel from the Land. For the Lord Himself has established His people here.
The people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again,” concluded Netanyahu.

A REVIVAL of CLEANSING
by David Wilkerson

All the prophets saw the end times and prophesied of the gathering of a separated, holy people who would have great understanding in the Word of the Lord. Daniel heard great things from God but "understood not" (Daniel 12:8).

However, he saw a day coming when a purified, tried and tested remnant would understand; there would be a last-day company full of wisdom and discernment in the things of God. "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand" (Daniel 12:10).


Isaiah deplored the spiritual blindness of backslidden Israel. He said, "They err in vision, they stumble in judgment" (Isaiah 28:7). The little discernment they once had was destroyed by their lusts. But Isaiah prophesied of a day in which "the deaf [shall] hear the words . . . the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. . . . They shall sanctify my name . . . and shall fear the God of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine" (Isaiah 29:18, 23-24).

I believe the last-day revival so many preach about is a revival of cleansing. If the work of the Holy Spirit is to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, then it is certain that in a great Holy Ghost outpouring there will be powerful waves of conviction,
and a careless, indulgent Church will be shaken and forced to face her sins.

While multitudes of Christians chase after signs and miracles and flock to teachers of success and prosperity, God has been calling out a "wilderness people" who are consumed with hunger for more of Christ.

Right now a glorious company is coming forth! One day God began to stir their hearts and they became disillusioned with all the hypocrisy and shame. They got into the Word of God and saw for themselves what His ultimate purposes are. They put on Christ's robe of righteousness by faith, submitted to the claims of Christ, and decided to walk alone, if necessary, to be wholly obedient to Him. They set themselves to hear and understand the Lord's will. They began to see things in the Spirit and were made to understand that the end of all things is at hand. To these, the Word of the Lord has come!

"Christ is coming! Repent, for the day of the Lord is near! Lay aside every besetting sin and set your affection on things above! Do not partake in the empires and dreams of men. Forsake it all and go out to meet Him."

That word is being proclaimed loud and clear!

President Obama's Marriage is Headed for Failure. Why Has He Defiled the Covenant of Marriage?

Why has President Obama attacked the Covenant of Marriage? In spite of the $17-trillion dollar debt threatening to collapse what's left of America's failing economy, Obama's primary goal in recent months was his attack against God-ordained marriage, exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia.

In light of the Benghazi scandal and cover up of truth in the death of a US Ambassador and others, Obama was not interested in revealing the truth of that 911 attack. He stayed focused on attacking the God-ordained Covenant of marriage.

Sadly, the intense driving passion and overwhelming strong desire of President Obama during this time has been to show respect to men who sex with men. While showing his "respect" for deviant and unfruitful homosexual sex, Obama shows disrespect to the Bible, it's adherants and to the God of all creation.

Meanwhile, conservative and Christian groups have been the target of IRS harrassment. But once again, Obama does not want the truth to come out.

Well, Mr. President, the truth will prevail over every lie. The truth about Benghazi will be made known. The truth about the corruption and lawlessness at the IRS will be known. And by your own actions, your marriage is headed for failure.

"For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." (Mark 4:22)

WAKE UP, AMERICA!!

Isn't it time to rally against the lie that breaking the nose and busting the head of a neighborhood watch captain is not a crime? Isn't it time to rally against those who threaten "whitey" because a Hispanic was found "not guilty"? Isn't it time to rally against all who threaten violence at any perceived injustice? And isn't it time to rally against a President who is attempting to turn our attention away from evidence of his blatant ineptitude? His politicizing of a single crime is merely race baiting to obfuscate his own racist and political crimes of attacking the mostly white Conservative and Christian groups through illegal and immoral IRS practices? Seriously, America, it's way past time to pray and seek the Lord... but not too late.

To learn more about President Obama's strategy for stirring up division between the races, you may learn more about his 'Alinsky Style' practices in the book 'Rules for Radicals' by Saul Alinsky.

Civil War Coming to USA
editor@ Connection Magazine.org

The persecution of Bible believers in the US is just getting started. Meanwhile, law abiding citizens are under attack for owning guns.

More lives are saved by law abiding gun owners than those taken by law-breaking gun owners. So, can you guess why the US is going after law abiding citizens?

The US Government wants your guns because they can't accomplish their goal as long as you can protect yourself. Looks like the founders of the US knew something when they wrote the Constitution allowing for citizens to be armed to protect themselves against all enemies, foreign and domestic, including tyranny.

Utah and Texas have warned the Feds they will not allow the Constitution to be trampled.

Civil war is around the corner for the country that has fomented civil wars and civil unrest in countries like Syria, Egypt and Israel to name a few. What the US has sown the US will reap. Word.

Meanwhile, the US is arming Homeland Security with 1.6 billion (hollow point) bullets, which are so deadly they're outlawed in the theater of war. Can you guess why?

For those with ears to hear, leave the US while you still can. Judgment is coming to the US; including death and imprisonment. Why should you share in her sufferings?

The FALSE PROPHET
Have strangers invaded Christianity and that which is called church?
by Art Katz

In Jeremiah chapter 23, God gives us a powerful statement about true and false prophets. Talk about an indictment! It is one thing to have an indictment against Israel, but when you begin to indict the prophets of Israel, when the loftiest and the best and the noblest thing has become the most profane, then that must be a symbol or a statement of the low condition of a nation prior to its judgment.

There is a conjunction between prophet and priest: "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so!" (Jer.5:31a).

(re: Biblically Illiterate congregations and their false prophets)

It is remarkable how self-serving this reciprocal thing is between heads of movements or fellowships and the false prophets, and how comfortable they are with one another, and how they affirm one another. The people are in an unspoken agreement with their ministers: "You present a biblical message. We will pay the bill and have a Sunday service that will leave our lives free from any kind of demand that would really touch our true vested interest and value. We don't want a message that is going to challenge where our heart really is. We want to be able to say, 'Amen' and 'We've been to church'" -and that kind of thing. As the priest, so also the people. As the pastor/preacher, so also the congregation. Into that situation we have to come prophetically - and likely be stoned!

'"Therefore their way will be like slippery paths to them, they will be driven away into the gloom and fall in it; for I shall bring calamity
upon them, the year of their punishment," declares the LORD'
(v. 12).

It implies that there is not an immediate judgment, but that there is an appointed time in which God judges those that profane His house-those who originally had authentic and holy callings. That may well be why the Lord is allowing to continue that which is presently being called prophetic and is so popular, but for them, as with the priests and prophets of old, there will be a year of visitation or a time when God calls a halt.

There is a consequence for false prophecy. It will affect the entire nation and therefore the entire church by the same principle.

"' Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are prophesying to you...'" (vs. 15-16a).

Notice that God still calls them prophets. It is maybe because the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable. They still retain their official title, but what they are performing under that title is in God's sight an abomination. There is nothing more profane than when the sacred is no longer authentically sacred. When we take the sacred phrase, 'Thus says the Lord' and merely employ it as a device to win the attention of our hearers, then we are desecrating the sacred. We are making the sacred profane and once we have done that, what else can be hoped for? If we are not as a priestly people setting forth the distinction between the profane and the sacred, what can be hoped for in the world? The ramifications of what we are talking about are beyond any full grasp.

FALSE PROPHET'S MESSAGES

"They keep saying to those who despise Me, 'The LORD has said, 'You will have peace'; and as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, they say, 'Calamity will NOT come upon you.'" (v.16b-17).

This must be the very quintessence of what a false prophet is, namely, the giving of a false comfort and a false assurance of peace that does not regard the truth of the conditions that need to be faced. It is an unwillingness to bring a hard word. The things that are prophesied (by false prophets) are normally flattering and encouraging to the flesh, rather than challenging or threatening. False prophets have historically prophesied peace when there is no peace. 'Calamity will not come upon you' is unhappily the kind of prophetic statement that is coming forth even today, especially in Israel. They are giving a false comfort to those who are not even properly aligned to God. Humanly speaking, we would not see these people as those who despise God. God sees them, however, as despising Him and we need to see it as He sees it.

The false prophets are actually bringing a kind of encouragement to those people who are already OUT of right relationship with God and give them an assurance that their relationship with God is in order.

"But who has stood in the council of the LORD...?"

Moses, who wrote the five books of Moses, could say of himself that he was the humblest man on the face of the earth. That is true humility, where we are devoid of any sense of spiritual self-consciousness. We can merely state the fact of something without any effect upon ourselves, because the humility is not a statement to our honor. Humility is not something that man can work up by himself on the earth and develop as a character trait. Humility is what God is in Himself, and the only one who will display and exhibit it, is that one who has been consistently in the presence of God. It is humbling to be there and that is why Moses could state it not as a credit to himself, but to God, out of whose presence that humility was established. God requires still that His prophetic men be in His presence.

I want to say that there is nothing more difficult for anyone than this requirement. Everything contends against it-the dinner bell, the faucet is dripping, the light bulb needs to be changed, the dogs need to be fed - a thousand things continually nipping at you that require attention. Even if that were not so, there is something about the pulse of the flesh itself that is inimical and opposed to seeking the Lord. Seeking the Lord is an extraordinarily difficult thing and few have sufficeint incentive. It is a suffering, and in fact, just to be more ruthlessly honest, it is a dying. Living on the earth, in the flesh, in the world and in time, and to confide and to commune with God, is an extraordinary and ultimate attainment. If you attain it, then maintain it, because you do not want to have to do it all over again. Can you maintain it and still go to last night's birthday party, and dancing, and hooting, and singing, and stomping and not lose it or be jarred from your sensitive spiritual place by what seems to be just a time of fun?

We are talking about something very critical. I would not expect in the earth today many men who are in this place (of close fellowship with the Lord). What then shall we say for the whole rash of prophets that have arisen in recent years for there are many men professing to be prophets, but are we hearing the council of God? God's judgment about the failure to obtain His word in that place is severe.

We can know when the word (proceeds from) the council of God because it has this salutary effect. It will affect the nation or fellowship in turning it toward God, rather than away from Him and from their evil ways and their practices. I can remember a full gospel breakfast where the speaker was from Sweden, a leading evangelical personality, but it could have been anywhere. He was wearing a Gucci shirt and tie and a silk-type suit, and he began by saying, "The Lord has spoken to me this morning and given me a word for you." I leaned forward to catch every syllable that had come from the heart of God. As I heard it, however, there was nothing from God at all, but clichés, evangelical phrases and full gospel hogwash.The men who were hearing that word that morning, and nodding their heads, and "amening", applauding and affirming, need to know that there are consequences when we allow that kind of monumental lie to be expressed and not to be contradicted. It will deaden and dull our sensitivity so that the next time we will be an even greater candidate for deception for anything that comes down the pike.

There needed to be someone in that audience that morning to get up and say, "I am sorry for whatever pain and dislocation I am going to cause, but I cannot allow that phrase and that statement to be made in our hearing without being contested. That was not the word of God and we dare not allow that kind of terminology to be employed merely to sanctify or to give a kind of credibility to what is otherwise just an ordinary statement." How often is that being done and to what extent has our failure to do so, had a negative effect on the church today? We have paid much for cheap, casual references to God, as if we could invoke Him at pleasure or say, "God gave", when He did not give.

The same ones who will dismiss God rudely are the same ones who will invoke Him lightly. Prophets are called to come into that whole scenario, and bring the sword of the Lord, and bring the fear of the Lord, and the truth of the Lord to people who have been long spoiled by such cheapy things as I am now describing, and as every one of us at one time or another, more than we would like, have experienced. This is why we have anguished and God is calling a halt.

That is why there are false prophets. That is why, if I can say it, the Charismatic and kindred movements themselves are kind of false movements, wanting the effulgence of the Spirit and the excitement and the activity, but evading the cross and the necessity for suffering out of which the Spirit of God is given as solace, comfort and power. We come back again and again to the cross. The false prophet speaks words of comfort when God would not have His people to be comforted, but to be agitated. True prophets can bear the reprisal, the rejection and the mortification of that word coming back into their own teeth. They can bear giving the word and then someone cueing the piano player to drown it out.

Prophetic anguish is to bring the word of God and then to have it refused and come right back into your teeth. It is mortifying and the antithesis of the joy and the gratification that comes when the word of God flows out of you, and through, and into the people who are receiving it. That is like tonic for your soul. We have to be as willing for the one as the other, or we will not speak the other. The call to the prophet is the call to the cross. It is a frequent, if not continual form of suffering of an exquisite and ultimate kind. Can we say, "Thus says the Lord" without actually articulating those words or implying those words in your statement, except that your word has come through the cross? It is out of a death. It is not your own word, but His, which can only come from that cross-centered place. That was true for the prophets before the advent of the cross. Elijah preceded the cross, but he knew the death of it when he said, "...there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word." Jesus knew the cross before He knew the cross. The cross only exemplified and made visible the thing to which His life was all along submitted.

-From 'The Prophetic Call' by Art Katz.

Editor's note: The Lord desires for His people to mature, bear good fruit, prepare to endure the darkness that is already encroaching, and prepare to endure to the end, even to the laying down of one's life. Now is the time to practice by dying daily to one's self. However, false teachers and false prophets are forsaking the Lord and His word; prostituting, fornicating and adulterating Christianity. But there is a big price many will soon pay;

Revelation 2:21-23, And I gave her space to REPENT of her fornication; and she repented NOT. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into
great tribulation, except they REPENT of their deeds. And

I WILL KILL HER CHILDREN WITH DEATH; and ALL THE CHURCHES shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Is there or should there be a Biblical order when Christians assemble? 1Timothy 3:15,
...I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Revelation of The ONE True Church
Does God consider denominations or a building built by men’s hands to be His Church, or is it something else? Have ‘traditions’ of men replaced God’s power and Scripture definition of the "church"?
Prepared by J Israel

Mark 7:9, Jesus warned the religious, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.”

Matthew 21:13, Jesus said, "‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.'"

Acts 17:24, "God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does NOT dwell in temples made with hands."

Hebrews 9:11, "...Christ came as High Priest...with the greater and more perfect tabernacle NOT made with hands, that is, not of this creation."

Therefore…
John 2:19-20, Jesus said…“Destroy this TEMPLE, and in three days I will raise it up.” (He was)…speaking of the TEMPLE of His body.

So, where does the Lord DWELL now if it is no longer in a building?

1Corinthians 3:16, "Do you not know that YOU are THE TEMPLE of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you…"

1Corinthians 12:27, "…you are the body of Christ, and members individually."

1Corinthians 3:9, "…you are God’s field, you are God’s BUILDING."

Ephesians 2:19-22, "…therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole BUILDING, being fitted together, grows into a HOLY TEMPLE in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a DWELLING PLACE of God in the Spirit."

1Peter 2:5, "…you also, as living stones, are being built up a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."

Are denominations (factions) biblical?

1 Corinthians 1:10,  "Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be NO DIVISIONS among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment (Scripture/Doctrine)."

1 Corinthians 1:2, “…those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his HOLY PEOPLE, together with ALL THOSE EVERYWHERE who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:”

1Corinthians 3:11, " For NO OTHER foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, WHICH IS Jesus Christ."

Is Jesus and His holy Scripture the HEAD and authority of your congregation?

Ephesians 4:15-16, "...grow up in all things into HIM WHO IS THE HEAD—CHRIST—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what EVERY joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the BODY for the edifying of itself in love."

Matthew 23:8, Jesus/Salvation said, “But be not be called Rabbi, (Teacher, Pastor): for ONE is your Master, even Christ; and YOU ARE ALL BRETHREN.”

So, should there be one or just a few servant ministers in the Church congregation, or should we all be able to minister?

1Peter 4:10, “As EACH ONE has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”

Colossians 3:15-16, "…let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in ONE BODY; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing ONE ANOTHER in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

Romans 15:14, "Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish ONE ANOTHER."

Romans 12:4, "…but all the members do NOT have the same function…"

Romans 12:6-8, "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us USE THEM: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."

Jeremiah 23:28, (The Lord said) "...he who has My word, LET HIM speak My word faithfully."

1Timothy 4:14, “Do not neglect the gift that is in you…”

YES! True Christians are powered by the Holy Spirit and EVERY MEMBER is instructed to minister as the Lord has gifted them! Does your Christian fellowship look like this?

1Corinthians 12:4-11, "There are diversities of GIFTS, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing's by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills."

Proper biblical order of congregational/assembly ministry…

1Corinthians 14:30-40, "But if anything is revealed to ANOTHER WHO SITS BY, let the first keep silent. For you can ALL prophesy one by one, that ALL may learn and ALL may be encouraged. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in ALL the churches of the saints. Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church. Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant. Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let ALL things be done decently and in order."

So, what about Christian leaders who reject the Holy Spirit’s power and/or refuse to allow the members of the true congregation the LIBERTY to function in their legitimate God-given spiritual gift?

2 Cor. 3:17, Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY.

Regarding those APPEARING religious, 2 Tim. 3:5, “…having a form of godliness but DENYING its POWER, from such people TURN AWAY!”

Should you partake with so-called Christian assemblies and congregations that allow/tolerate self-professing Christians who continue to engage in blatant and unrepentant sin?

1 Cor. 5:11, "But now I have written unto you NOT to keep company, if any man that is called a BROTHER/BELIEVER be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; do NOT even eat with such a one.

"For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are
INSIDE? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “PUT AWAY from yourselves the evil person.”

Assembling, congregating or connecting weekly or daily?

Hebrews 3:13, “…EXHORT ONE ANOTHER DAILY, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Titus 2:15, “…exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.”

Jesus identified TRUE place of worship;

John 4:21-24, Jesus/Salvation said unto her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming, when you shall NEITHER in this mountain, nor YET at Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship you know NOT what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH for the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him MUST worship him in spirit and in truth.”

Romans 12:1, "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to OFFER YOUR BODIES as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your TRUE and PROPER WORSHIP."

Matthew 18:20, Jesus/Salvation said, “For where two or three are gathered together in MY NAME, THERE I AM in the midst of them.”

Congregations gather in MANY names these days, but whose name are true believers REQUIRED to gather in?

Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do in word or deed, DO ALL in the name of the Lord Jesus/Salvation, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
(note: The birth name of the Lord is the Hebrew word for "Salvation", and is pronounced Yahshua. Jesus is the name that we received from the Greek's attempt to transliterate the name rather than translate. The 'us' was added by Greeks to symbolize a male name and the 'J' was added by Catholocism in the 17th Century. Had the Greeks merely translated the name of our Lord, the English speakers would all be worshipping Him as "Salvation the Messiah".)

Philippians 2:9, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him (Jesus/Salvation) a NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME:”

Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved.”

DO NOT BE DELUDED OR DECEIVED!

*The Church is Not a Building Made of Brick and Mortar
*Church is Not Just a One or Two Hour Meeting Each Week
*Man's TRADITIONS of “church” must yield to the Lord definition of church as His holy SCRIPTURE/DOCTRINES instruct?
* Don’t just DO church… Followers of Jesus ARE The Church and; therefore, will BE The Church 24/7

Yes, ALL true follower of Jesus/Salvation are God’s church/building/temple and are FREE to use the gift(s) the Lord placed in them to edify and build up any and ALL of the brethren following Jesus/Salvation, who are scattered throughout the world.

Revelation 3:1, Jesus/SALVATION said, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, and let no man take your crown.”

June 29, 2016 (Revised)
Three Nights & Three Days
Jesus, whose birth name 'Yahshua' means "SALVATION", PROPHETICALLY OUTLINED His death, burial and resurrection.
Prepared by Brian Israel

Matthew 12:29 Yahshua/Salvation said “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and NO SIGN will be given to it EXCEPT THE SIGN of the prophet Jonah."

Luke 11:30 Yahshua/Salvation said "...For as Jonah became a SIGN to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation."

Are you ready to have this ONE AND ONLY SIGN revealed accurately and truthfully?

John 10:17-18, Yahshua/Salvation said "...I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again."

Mark 8:31 Yahshua/Salvation said "...the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and AFTER THREE DAYS rise again." Matthew 23:17 says ...THE THIRD DAY rise again. Acts 10:40 says ...Him God raised up ON THE THIRD DAY...

Matthew 12:40, Yahshua/Salvation said ..."For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three (lights) days and three (darks) nights in the heart of the earth."

Scripture explicitly defines what a day and a night is...

Genesis 1:4-5, ...God divided the light from the darkness. God called the LIGHT 'day', and the DARKNESS He called 'night'...

We know when Yahshua, our Salvation, was crucified, it happened...

Mark 15:25, ...the third hour...

John 19:14, ...the Preparation Day of the Passover...

And we know that...

Matthew 27: 46&50, ...about the ninth hour Savior and Deliverer cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"... He cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

Mark 15:42-47, ...when EVENING had come, because it was the Preparation Day (Passover), that is, the day before the Sabbath (the first day of the Feast of Unleavened bread), Joseph of Arimathea...went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Salvation God With Us. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. Then he bought fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Salvation God With Us observed where He was laid.

Luke 23:56, Then they (followers of the Lord) returned and...rested on the SABBATH according to the COMMANDMENT.

Remember...

Luke 23:54, That day (day of Yahshua's crucifixion) was the Preparation, and the Sabbath (the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, always a high holy day also called a Special Sabbath day) drew near.

Matthew 27:62-66, On the next day (the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread), which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate, saying, "Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, 'AFTER THREE DAYS I will rise.' Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the THIRD DAY, lest His disciples come...and steal Him away, and say to the people, 'He has risen from the dead.' So the last deception will be worse than the first." Pilate said to them, "You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how." So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.

We know...

Mark 16:9, Savior and Deliverer rose early on the first day (Sunday) of the week...

And that, that day was...

Luke 24:20-21, ...the third day SINCE (the Anointed One was crusified).

We know...

John 20:1, ...Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark. And Luke 24:1 says ..."very early in the morning"... Matthew 28:1 says "...at dawn...", Mark 16:2 says "...just after sunrise...", and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.

We know that the tomb was empty before the women arrived...

Matthew 28:5-6, ...the angel...said to the women... Yahshua/Salvation, who was crucified...
is NOT here; for He is risen, as He said...

Interestingly enough, the guards were still on guard as instructed, we know this because...

Matthew 28:4 ...the guards shook for fear of (the angel), and became like dead men.

Lets recap...

We know Yahshua/Salvation spent THREE NIGHTS and THREE DAYS in the heart of the earth and that
He rose AFTER THREE DAYS yet ON THE THIRD DAY! We know Mary found the tomb EMPTY very early Sunday either before sunrise or just after, but it was ALREADY EMPTY. From this information, it is CONCLUSIVE that Yahshua/Salvation had to have been risen before sunrise.

We also know Yahshua/Salvation was placed in the tomb (some believe this means heart of the earth) just before twilight, obviously before the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which was a Festival Sabbath day, not a weekly Sabbath day. We believe "heart of the earth" is more literal as explained in Ephesians 4:8, This is why it says: "When he ascended on high he took many captives and gave gifts to his people." (What does "he ascended" mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions?)

Regarding "lower, earthly regions" or heart of the earth, consider the following Scripture...


1 Peter 3:19-20, ...HE went and made proclamation to the IMPRISONED SPIRITS- to those who were disobedient long ago...

Ephesians 4:8, Therefore it is said, "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives..." (also see Psalm 68:18)

Remember, Yahshua/Salvation said "three days and three nights". Now let's do the math and count three day lights...

1st Light - Thursday before sundown
2nd Light - Friday before sundown
3rd Light - Saturday before sundown

Now, let's count three nights or darks...

1st Night - Thursday night at dark and before sunrise
2nd Night - Friday night at dark and before sunrise
3rd Night - Saturday night at dark and before sunrise Sunday morning

Western Counting...

Thursday to Friday = 1st day
Friday to Saturday = 2nd day
Saturday to Sunday = THE THIRD DAY and THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS

Jewish Counting...

Thursday = 1st day
Friday = 2nd day
Saturday = 3rd day
Sunday = AFTER THREE DAYS and THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS

SAVIOR AND DELIVERER rose as promised AFTER three days yet ON the third day and even fulfilled His THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS declaration all by Sunday Morning before Sunrise!

Both Western and Jewish ways of counting are required to solve this age old mystery!

Either your going to have faith in Scripture
or something else when determining correct doctrine and teaching!

FYI, there are weekly Sabbaths (every Saturday, which is the seventh day), and there are also Sabbaths associated with the Lord's festivals, which the Lord calls "My Festivals".

During the week Yahshua/Salvation was crucified there were two Sabbaths. For the math to compute, Salvation would have had to been buried on a Thursday just before twilight of Passover, the day before the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is a Festival Sabbath. Therefore, the popular teaching that Yahshau/Salvation died on a Friday before the weekly Sabbath quite simply DOES NOT FULLY COMPUTE mathematically and is a BLATANT CONTRADICTION to our Savior and Deliverer's Word!

The fact of the Festival is...


Leviticus 23:5-7 On the FOURTEENTH day of the first month at twilight is the LORD"S PASSOVER. And on the FIFTEENTH day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.

1 Corinthians 5:7-8 ...indeed The Messiah, our PASSOVER was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us KEEP the (PASSOVER) feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of SINCERITY and TRUTH.

UNDOUBTEDLY - Friday afternoon to Sunday morning before daylight does NOT equal THREE NIGHTS and THREE DAYS.

If a Leader/Elder is willing to disregard Savior and Deliverer's declaration of THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS what else is he willing to disregard?

We urge you to leave BABYLONIAN INDOCTRINATED "CHURCHES"! Free yourself from False Teachers/Teachings and Lies no matter how small or insignificant the error or lie seems, and EMBRACE the TRUTH / Savior and Deliverer's Word!

Abandonment of truth, can it be love?
Alan Keyes responds to pope's exhortation about those who are 'different'

Catholocism's Pope: "We encounter problems whenever we think that relationships or people ought to be perfect, or when we put ourselves at the center and expect things to turn out our way. Then everything makes us impatient, everything makes us react aggressively. Unless we cultivate patience, we will always find excuses for responding angrily. We will end up incapable of living together, antisocial, unable to control our impulses, and our families will become battlegrounds. That is why the word of God tells us: 'Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice' (Ephesians 4:31). Patience takes root when I recognize that other people also have a right to live in this world, just as they are. It does not matter if they hold me back, if they unsettle my plans, or annoy me by the way they act or think, or if they are not everything I want them to be. Love always has an aspect of deep compassion that leads to accepting the other person as part of this world, even when he or she acts differently than I would like." (#92 Amoris Laetitia {Pope Francis})

As I read (the above) passage from Pope Francis' recently released Post Synodic Apostolic Exhortation, I immediately thought "What about when (people) act differently than God requires? What about when we are striving to keep God at the center?" These questions gave rise to the following train of thought:

Was Christ unloving, and worthy of blame for angering some people, because he said "Be ye perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect. …"?

Today, people who reject God's provisions for human nature may react aggressively to those who witness truthfully for God's will in defense of nascent human life, or His provision for procreation by means that respect the prerequisites of human consciousness and individuality. This assault on God's truth has turned some families into battlegrounds. Are we then called to retreat from truthful witness, even though, by doing so, we would lend credence to the scandal that is presently betraying our children to perdition?

What of Christ - who said:

"Do not think I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's ENEMIES shall be they of his own household. He that loves father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." (Matthew 34-37)

Which words are true: Those of Christ or those that appear to contradict Him? Apparently, Christ did not think it compassionate, toward ourselves or others, to surrender our relationship with Him in truth, in order to maintain our worldly relationships with lies.

In 2004, when I was running against Barack Obama in Illinois, I had a meeting with two pastors who reproached me because I would not back away from my defense of innocent life in order to win the support of pro-abortion Republicans, such as then Illinois GOP Chairwoman Judy Topinka. I patiently explained that doing so would betray God and the meaning of justice the United States is founded upon. Throughout the meeting, I defended that stand. They waxed angry and impatient because I would not relent.

I have no doubt that many who look to Christ have had similar conversations, even with people in their own families. Simply because we will not pretend to love them more than we love Christ's presence within us, these others now harbor bitter feelings against us, feelings we in no way reciprocate. But doesn't respect for Christ's presence oblige us to say to God, with Christ, "Not my will but thine be done"? Shouldn't that obligation hold, even if it means that our own hearts break upon the hardened hearts of others; even if it leads others to demand that we be crucified upon a cross of God-defying lies about the "right" to follow ways of living (lifestyles) that abandon God's standard for what is right?

Is this not our cross, which we must bear for the sake of Christ, who said "he that does not take up his cross, and follow me, is not worthy of me"? If, for the sake of worldly relationships, we abandon the perfect standard of God's love; if for the sake of peace in the home or in the world we abandon the standard of God's truth; if we look away from the standard of Christ's way, to accept that it is right to live according to a way that rejects the Word and will of our Father in Heaven, are we truly acting with love and charity?

Is it love for others when we encourage them, by our acceptance, to follow ways of life that God sees as ways of death and dying? (Proverbs 14:12: "There is a way which seems right to a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.") Is it love to smile and applaud as our loved ones follow those ways of death; or as they join themselves with the workers of iniquity who encourage others to follow those ways? Is it love, or is it a path that makes us workers of iniquity, of whom the Psalmist says to the Lord "You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, nor shall evil dwell with You. … You hate all workers of iniquity. …" (Psalms 5:5)?

For is it not iniquity when we knowingly encourage people who are following the ways of death to believe that they "have the right" to live according to those ways? Surely, they may freely choose to do so, for that freedom is the root of moral responsibility. But to say that it is right is a soul-destroying lie. It turns away from Christ, whose way is truth and life. But if we, who are supposed to represent Christ, speak and act in ways that encourage others as they walk away from God, do we not take His name in vain?

Christ suffered crucifixion rather than exchange God's truth for a lie. For God's sake, aren't we called, as members of Christ's body, to do the same?

BEWARE of LIARS!
So-called Christians who say you do NOT have to keep God's COMMANDMENTS are LIARS!
Yes, those who repent of their sins are saved by grace; however, we are NOT lawless. Jesus said, "keep commandments." Also, 10 New Testament Scriptures say, "keep commandments."
"Whoever does NOT keep His COMMANDMENTS, is a LIAR, and the truth is not in him." 1 John 2:4

Mark 12:30, Jesus said, "And thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first COMMANDMENT.

The first of the Lord's commandments that Jesus pointed out provides us with direction to LOVE the Lord God. But how exactly do we truly LOVE God with ALL our heart, soul, mind and strength? What further instructions has the Lord provided?

John 14:15, Jesus said, " If ye LOVE me, keep my COMMANDMENTS."

John 14:21, "He that has my COMMANDMENTS, and keeps them, he it is that LOVES me: and he that LOVES me shall be loved of my Father, and I will LOVE him, and will manifest myself to him."

John 15:10, "If ye keep my COMMANDMENTS, you shall abide in my LOVE; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his LOVE."

1 John 5:3, "For this is the LOVE of God, that we keep his COMMANDMENTS: and His COMMANDMENTS are not grievous."

1 John 5:2, "By this we know that we LOVE the children of God, when we LOVE God, and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS."

1 John 3:22, And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his COMMANDMENTS, and do those things that are PLEASING in his sight.

1 John 2:3&4, And hereby we do know that we KNOW Him, if we keep His COMMANDMENTS. He that saith, I know Him, and keeps NOT His COMMANDMENTS, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Matthew 19:16&17, And, behold, one came and said unto (Jesus), Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into LIFE, keep the COMMANDMENTS.

Revelation 22:14, Blessed are they that do his COMMANDMENTS, that they may have right to the tree of LIFE, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Who is satan so angry with that he wars against them?

Revelation 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of God, AND have the TESTIMONY of JESUS CHRIST."

How are last days, true followers of Jesus further identified?

Revelation 14:12, "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of God, AND the FAITH of JESUS."

Our forgiveness of sins and the Salvation of our souls has been made possible by the grace of Jesus Christ and His awesome sacrifice of dying and shedding His blood for us. Now; therefore, let us live lives HOLY, PLEASING and WORTHY of the calling in Christ and NOT be like the lawless ones who turn the grace of the Lord Jesus into LASCIVIOUSNESS. (Jude 1:4)

Let us now LOVE the Lord how HE desires and how He has directed us.

Truth has fallen in the streets of America and God's commands are forsaken in many so-called churches. The following is an example of the LORD's COMMANDMENTS that much of Americanized Christianity largely ignores;

1 Corinthians 14:34-37, "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the COMMANDMENTS of the Lord."

Below is a list of the Lord's 10 Commandments given through Moses. The first four commands instruct us in a proper and pleasing relationship with the Lord. The last six commands instruct us how to properly conduct our lives in relation to and with other people.
Which commands should we obey and which ones can we ignore?

Exodus 20:3-17, "You shall have no other gods before me.

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing LOVE to a thousand generations of those who LOVE me and keep my commandments.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

“You shall not murder.

“You shall not commit adultery.

“You shall not steal.

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Sadly, the above COMMANDMENTS of the Lord are currently under attack by the United States Government and many so-called churches.

Matthew 5:17-19, Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

(Editor's note: There are many New Testament Bible Scripture doctrines that are avoided or ignored by Americanized Christianity. A new Connection Magazine Prophecy article is currently in the works that parallels Bible Scripture against the actual error-filled practices of much of what is called "church" in America.)

New Covenant Christians kept Passover Festival.

Prophecy: Unity of "Word" and "Holy Spirit" Believers
MIRACLES ARE A MUST!
by Andrew Strom
 
I have noticed that when people focus too much  on the dangers of deception, they tend to go right over to the other extreme. They become quite "gun-shy" of anything miraculous - overly suspicious of anything powerful' that happens. They forget that God is an extremely "supernatural" God. They forget that the true gospel is supposed to be accompanied by healings and miracles - the mighty demonstration of the Spirit's power.
 
Even if we preach with powerful conviction, the fact is, without miracles I have to wonder whether we really are representing true New Testament Christianity. I am totally convinced that we must have both the 'word' and the visible demonstration of God's power. Just like they did in the Book of Acts.
 
In 1947 Smith Wigglesworth gave a prophecy about the "coming together of those with an emphasis on the "word" and those with an emphasis on the "Spirit." He said: "When the word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed, the world has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years...."
 
There it is - the WORD and the SPIRIT joined.
 
Let me ask a simple question: What did people "see" when they came across Jesus' ministry? They saw a simple, piercing gospel being preached and also the 'kingdom' being domonstrated through healings and miracles. That is basically what they saw. And what did people "see" in the ministry of the apostles and evangelists of Acts? They saw the same thing. An anointed, piercing gospel and mighty demonstrations of God's power - both together. In fact, we really should ask ourselves, 'Is it possible to preach the gospel (in the full New Testament sense) without healings and miracles?' If we are being truly scriptural, surely we would have to answer,
"NO, IT IS NOT." They are totally designed to go together.
 
Another question- Why is the casting out of demons so important in demonstrating the 'kingdom'? Well - what it is showing is the greater AUTHORITY found in the name and the 'king-ship' of Jesus Christ. Even demons have to obey Him! Suddenly everyone sees this beyond a doubt when a demon is cast out before their eyes. I remember the first time I saw this happen as a teenager - before I was a true Christian. The person screamed and writhed as the demon was cast out - just like in the Bible. And what was the result in me? CONVICTION! Suddenly everything was 'REALLY TRUE'! I felt like running forward and surrendering to God on the spot.
 
And this is why I have to question the casting out of demons in a "back room" somewhere. Notice that Jesus never did this. He cast out demons in PUBLIC - so that the 'kingdom' was demonstrated and God was glorified. Notice too, that deliverance seemed to be relatively quick and decisive.
 
We have got to see the 'Word and the Spirit joined' like this in our day, my friends. And that is why I am so encouraged by recent developments - even in my own life. Just a few days ago I prayed for a lady that had been in hospital for a stomach operation with all kinds of complications. Very unwell. But she was immediately healed in the mighty name of JESUS!
 
I believe we have come into a "new season" where this kind of thing will become the expected 'norm' every day. That is what I have seen. And the great thing is that we are finding we can pass this onto others also. I am convinced this is to be a day of "whole body" ministry - where every Christian is out healing the sick, casting out demons and preaching a mighty gospel. The day of the "one man band" is coming to an end. Glory to Jesus!

Editor's Note: I began praying for unity of "word" Christians and "holy Spirit" Christians over 25 years ago. It is sad to see "word" focused church groups live powerless. Likewise, it is sad to see "Spirit" Church groups live so lawless.

ESCAPE TRIBULATION? -WRONG!
 by Corrie Ten Boom
 
The world is deathly ill.  It is dying. The Great Physician has already signed the death certificate. Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do. They are to be streams of living water, channels of mercy to those who are still in the world. It is possible for them to do this because they are overcomers.

Christians are ambassadors for Christ. They are representatives from Heaven to this dying world. And because of our presence here, things will change.

My sister, Betsy, and I were in the Nazi concentration camp at Ravensbruck because we committed the crime of loving Jews. Seven hundred of us from Holland, France, Russia, Poland and Belgium were herded into a room built for two hundred.  As far as I knew, Betsy and I were the only two representatives of Heaven in that room.

We may have been the Lord's only representatives in that place of hatred, yet because of our presence there, things changed. Jesus said, "In the world you shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."  We too, are to be overcomers - bringing the light of Jesus into a world filled with darkness and hate.

Sometimes I get frightened as I read the Bible, and as I look in this world and see all of the tribulation and persecution promised by the Bible coming true.  Now I can tell you, though, if you too are afraid, that I have just read the last pages. I can now come to shouting "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" for I have found where it is written that Jesus said, "He that overcometh shall inherit all things: and I will be His God, and he shall be My son."  This is the future and hope of this world. NOT that the world will survive - but that we shall be overcomers in the midst of a dying world.

Betsy and I, in the concentration camp, prayed that God would heal Betsy who was so weak and sick. "Yes, the Lord will heal me,", Betsy said with confidence. She died the next day and I could not understand it. They laid her thin body on the concrete floor along with all the other corpses of the women who died that day.

It was hard for me to understand, to believe that God had a purpose for all that. Yet because of Betsy's death, today I am traveling all over the world telling people about Jesus.

There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days. Most of them have little knowledge of what is already going on across the world. I have been in countries where the saints are already suffering terrible persecution.  

In China, the Christians were told, "Don't worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated - raptured."  Then came a terrible persecution.  Millions of Christians were tortured to death.

Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly,"We have failed. We should have made the people strong for persecution rather than telling them Jesus would come first. Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution, how to stand when the tribulation comes - to stand and not faint."

I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it. We are next.

Since I have already gone through prison for Jesus' sake, and since I met the Bishop in China, now every time I read a good Bible text I think, "Hey, I can use that in the time of tribulation." Then I write it down and learn it by heart.

When I was in the concentration camp, a camp where only twenty percent of the women came out alive, we tried to cheer each other up by saying, "Nothing could be any worse than today." But we would find the next day was even worse. During this time a Bible verse that I had committed to memory gave me great hope and joy.

"If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you; on their part evil is spoken of, but on your part He is glorified."  (I Peter 3:14)  

I found myself saying, "Hallelujah! Because I am suffering, Jesus is glorified!"

In America, the churches sing, "Let the congregation escape tribulation", but in China and Africa the tribulation has already arrived. This last year alone more than two hundred thousand Christians were martyred in Africa. Now things like that never get into the newspapers because they cause bad political relations. But I know. I have been there.  We need to think about that when we sit down in our nice houses with our nice clothes to eat our steak dinners.  Many, many members of the Body of Christ are being tortured to death at this very moment, yet we continue right on as though we are all going to escape the tribulation.

Several years ago I was in Africa in a nation where a new government had come into power. The first night I was there some of the Christians were commanded to come to the police station to register. When they arrived they were arrested and that same night they were executed. The next day the same thing happened with other Christians. The third day it was  the same. All the Christians in the district were being systematically murdered.

The fourth day I was to speak in a little church. The people came, but they were filled with fear and tension. All during the service they were looking at each other, their eyes asking, "Will this one I am sitting beside be the next one killed? Will I be the next one?"

The room was hot and stuffy with insects that came through the screenless windows and swirled around the naked bulbs over the bare wooden benches.  I told them a story out of my childhood.

"When I was a little girl," I said, "I went to my father and said, 'Daddy, I am afraid that I will never be strong enough to be a martyr for Jesus Christ.'"

"Tell me," said Father, "When you take a train trip to Amsterdam, when do I give you the money for the ticket? Three weeks before?"  

"No, Daddy, you give me the money for the ticket just before we get on the train."

"That is right," my father said, "and so it is with God's strength. Our Father in Heaven knows when you will need the strength to be a martyr for Jesus Christ. He will supply all you need - just in time."

My African friends were nodding and smiling.  Suddenly a spirit of joy descended upon that church and the people began singing,

In the sweet, by and by, we shall meet on that beautiful shore."  

Later that week, half the congregation of that church was executed. I heard later that the other half was killed some months ago. But I must tell you something.  I was so happy that the Lord used me to encourage these people, for unlike many of their leaders, I had the word of God. I had been to the Bible and discovered that Jesus said He had not only overcome the world, but to all those who remained faithful to the end, He would give a crown of life.

How can we get ready for the persecution?  First we need to feed on the word of God, digest it, make it a part of our being.  This will mean disciplined Bible study each day as we not only memorize long passages of scripture, but put the principles to work in our lives.

Next we need to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Not just the Jesus of yesterday, the Jesus of History, but the life-changing Jesus of today who is still alive and sitting at the right hand of God.

We must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is no optional command of the Bible, it is absolutely necessary. Those earthly disciples could never have stood up under the persecution of the Jews and Romans had they not waited for Pentecost. Each of us needs our own personal Pentecost, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We will never be able to stand in the tribulation without it.

In the coming persecution we must be ready to help each other and encourage each other.  But we must not wait until the tribulation comes before starting. The fruit of the Spirit should be the dominant force of every Christian's life.

Many are fearful of the coming tribulation, they want to run. I, too, am a little bit afraid when I think that after all my eighty years, including the horrible Nazi concentration camp, that I might have to go through the tribulation also. But then I read the Bible and I am glad.

When I am weak, then I shall be strong, the Bible says. Betsy and I were prisoners for the Lord, we were so weak, but we got power because the Holy Spirit was on us. That mighty inner strengthening of the Holy Spirit helped us through. No, you will not be strong in yourself when the tribulation comes.  Rather, you will be strong in the power of Him who will not forsake you. For seventy-six years I have known the Lord Jesus and not once has He ever left me, or let me down.

Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him", for I know that to all who overcome, He shall give the crown of life. Hallelujah!

Editor's Note: As false messengers prep their followers to love this world by laying down their lives fighting for their earthly kingdom and all of it's benefits and rights, the Holy Spirit and the word of the Lord preps true Followers of Yahshua/Jesus for the Kingdom of Heaven and to be prepared to willingly lay down their lives as Messiah laid down His. (Revelation 12:11)

Only Remnant FREED from Law of Moses
Prepared by Jonathan Israel
and Shannah Hanna

There are two primary covenants found in the Scriptures. There is the First Covenant, which is based on the law that came by Moses, and there is the NEW Covenant, which came by faith and the Holy Spirit and it’s called The Gospel of Yahshua/Jesus our Messiah.

The fourth chapter of the letter to the Galatians helps us to understand the basic dynamics of both covenants; the Law covenant and the Salvation and righteousness by FAITH covenant. Those under the first covenant are still bound, and those under the NEW covenant are free.

Galatians 4:22-24, ... it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a BONDwoman, the other by a FREEwoman. But he who was of the BONDwoman was born according to the FLESH, and he of the FREEwoman through PROMISE, which things are symbolic. For these are the TWO covenants...

Galatians 4:1-7, “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore, you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Galatians 4:31 ...brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.

John 1:17, For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Yahshua ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ).

Galatians 3:23-25, Before the coming of this FAITH (righteousness by faith in Yahshua/Jesus), we were held in custody under the law, locked up (not free) until the FAITH that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our guardian UNTIL Christ came that we might be justified by FAITH. NOW that this faith (faith in Yahshua/Jesus giving repenters forgiveness, the gifts of righteousness and Holy Spirit presence and power) has come, we are NO LONGER under a guardian.

Romans 8:2, For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Hebrews 9:15, For this reason Christ is the mediator of a NEW Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.

Some boast in the law and some boast in Messiah/Christ.

Romans 2:23, You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?

James 2:10, For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in point, he is guilty of all.

1 Corinthians 1:31, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Galatians 6:14, May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Philippians 3:3, For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve Abba/God by HIS SPIRIT, who boast in Messiah Yahshua/Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh—
 
Have you heard and believed the good news called the Gospel of Yahshua/Jesus?

Colossians 2:13-17, then “…you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

2 Corinthians 3:3, Clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the SPIRIT of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.

Romans 4, For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the LAW, but through the righteousness of FAITH. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law works wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Therefore it is of FAITH, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Ephesians 2:15-16, But now in Messiah Yahshua (Christ Jesus) you who sometimes were far off are made near by the blood of Christ. For HE is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having ABOLISHED in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Romans 6:14, For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are NOT under the law, but under grace.

Sadly, some have and are subverting souls.

Acts 15:24-29, Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, You must be circumcised, and KEEP THE LAW: to whom we gave NO such COMMANDMENT:… For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That you abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.

Hebrew 7, For the law made nothing perfect, BUT the bringing in of a BETTER HOPE did by the which WE DRAW NEAR unto God (through Yahshua/Jesus and the gifts he gave us; righteousness and His Holy Spirit).

So, why do we still have and read the laws of Moses? The purpose of Moses law is to help convict the world of sin. The LAW is still in effect for the World: those who have not repented of their sins and who have not received Yahshua as their Lord and Savior so as to receive the gifts of righteousness and His Holy Spirit.

Galatians 3:19, “Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions UNTILthe Seed (Yahshua/Jesus) to whom the promise referred had come.” 

Romans 3, 19-22, “Now we know that what things soever the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and ALL THE WORLD may become guilty before Abba. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But NOW the righteousness of God WITHOUT THE LAW is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:”

1 Timothy 1, But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
Knowing this, that the law is NOT made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

The Law will be in effect until after the Lord pours out His end of the age final Judgments on the lawless, unregenerate and unredeemed who persist in sin and evil rebellion. Revelation 15:5.

So, what LAWS do Yahsua’s followers obey? Those following Yahsuah are now led by the Law of Spirit, Law of Faith, Law of Liberty and the Law of God.

LAW of FAITH

Galatians 3:11, Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.”

Romans 3:27, Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? NO: but by the Law of Faith.

LAW of SPIRIT

Galatians 5:18, But if you are led of the Holy Spirit, you are not under the law.

Romans 8:2-4, For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the HOLY SPIRIT.

LAW of LIBERTY

James 1:25, But whoso looks into the perfect Law of Liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

James 2:12, So speak, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the Law of Liberty.

Galatians 5:13,  Only you who “...have been called to liberty...do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh...”

LAW of GOD

Romans 8:7, …the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can be.

Romans 7:22, For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Hebrews 8:10, Written in the minds the hearts of Abba’s New Covenant followers…)

(This is according to the prophecy that Abba would one day write His laws in the hearts and minds of His Spirit-filled followers)
 
First Covenant Law of Moses is Ministry of Death and Condemnation, NEW Covenant Gospel of Yahshua is Ministry of LIFE and FORGIVENESS; the empowering Ministry of the Holy Spirit!

2 Corinthians 3:5-6 - Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from Abba, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the NEW COVENANT, not of the LETTER but of the Holy Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

2 Corinthians 3:7-18, But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Holy Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of RIGHTEOUSNESS exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious. Therefore, since we have such hope, we use GREAT BOLDNESS of SPEECH— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away.  But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is (only) taken away IN Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a MIRROR the GLORY of the LORD, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (the law could NOT transform us from glory to glory.. it could not perfect us, or make us Holy.. But Messiah/Christ can and He does!)
  
1 Corinthians 15:56-58, The sting of death is sin, and the STRENGTH OF SIN IS THE LAW. But thanks be to God, who gives us the VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD, Yahshua ha’Mashiach/Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the WORK of the Lord (Yahshua), knowing that your labor is not in vain IN THE LORD.

2 Corinthians 4:1-5, Therefore, since we have THIS ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the HIDDEN things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel (GOSPEL OF MESSIAH) is veiled, it is veiled to those who are PERISHING, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the GOSPEL of the glory of Messiah/Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but (we PREACH) Messiah/Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. 
 
Some Preach THE GOSPEL of Yahshua/Jesus the MESSIAH, BUT Some preach ANOTHER GOSPEL…

We are warned in1 Timothy 1:7, of those “Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding NEITHER what they say, NOR whereof they affirm.”

Acts 15:24, Some have troubled you saying, “You must...KEEP the law” —(however, The Apostles)...gave no such commandment—


2 Corinthians 10:12-15, For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us—a sphere which especially includes you. For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the GOSPEL of MESSIAH; not boasting of things beyond measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” (some boast in law, some boast in the Lord) For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends. we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere, to PREACH THE GOSPEL in the regions beyond you…

Corinthians 11:12-15, But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of CHRIST. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of RIGHTEOUSNESS, (promising righteousness through some other way than the Gospel of Messiah/Christ) whose end will be according to their works.

What is the GOSPEL of MESSIAH/Christ?


Acts 13:39, And by him (Yahshua/Jesus) all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could NOT be justified by the law of Moses.

Acts 2:38, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 3:21-22, Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Romans 7:7, ...Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, (we) would not have known sin except through the law.

Galatians 3:19, ...It was added because of transgressions, UNTILL the Seed should come to whom the PROMISE was made...

Romans 6:15, What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!

Romans 3:31, Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.

Romans 3:19, However “...whatever the law says, it says to THOSE who are under the law...”

1 Timothy 1, But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
Knowing this, that the law is NOT made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

Galatians 5:18, Those who “...are led by the Spirit...are not under the law.”

Romans 7:6, For they “…have been delivered from the law, having died to what (they) were held by...

Romans 7:6, Jesus wants us to serve Him ...IN THE NEWNESS OF THE SPIRIT and not in the oldness of the letter.

Romans 3:21 ...now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed...

John 8:32 (Now)...you...know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

If you have been redeemed and set free by Jesus the Christ...
Galatians 5:1, Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do NOT be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Galatians 3:10, Remember, ...as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”

Galatians 5:4, (Those) “...who attempt to be justified by law...have fallen from grace.”

Galatians 2:21, “...if righteousness (came) through the law, then Christ died in vain.”

Romans 9:31-32, DO NOT BE LIKE “...Israel...(who pursued)...the law of righteousness...(but never) attained to the law of righteousness...Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law...they stumbled at that stumbling stone.”

RIGHTEOUSNESS ONLY COMES AS A GIFT FROM YAHSHUA/JESUS. BEWARE OF THOSE CLAIMING TO BE MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL of CHRIST BUT WHOSE MESSAGE CLAIMS RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES FROM SOME OTHER WAY. YES, YAHSHUA IS THE ONLY WAY!

Great Shaking Warning: Are You Ready?

A message from Connection Magazine Editor, Jonathan Israel

Interestingly, Connection Magazine received a press release from FEMA in September, which stressed preparedness for a national disaster or any type of emergency. This is the first U.S. government report of this type we have ever received in 14 years of publishing.

NASA recently released a similar type of in-house warning to their staff and families.

About 10 months ago, I received confirmation from the Lord that a "great shaking" is coming to the United States soon. Then I had a dream in which I was in a quake, which was later followed up by an actual warning quake that recently shook our home in August, when the 5.9 quake hit near D.C.. Many of you who follow Yahshua ha'Mashiach (Jesus) have received similar dreams and visions.

Acts 2:17 says, "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams."

Amos 3:7 says, "Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."

Why is this trouble coming?

The United States has judiciously, legislatively, and most recently, executively removed (Yahshua) Jesus and the Law of God (Holy Bible) from our society.

Prayer and the Bible have been outlawed in our public schools.

The U.S. has made it legal for a mother to murder her child in her womb.

Our government taxes and prospers from the sale of pornography and liquor sales.

The Ten Commandments and other scriptures have been removed from courthouses and other public buildings.

Homosexuality has been legitimized, and God's holy covenant of marriage trampled.

The U.S. has methodically and systematically removed the Lord from our public society, and now the Lord Jesus (Yahshua) is removing His divine favor and protection from the U.S.. The only thing stopping our utter destruction is the true praying followers of Jesus.

Times will get tougher. The Lord has also showed me Isaiah 23, where it is prophesied that the Lord purposes to remove the glory of the world's marketplace. You can guess who that is, and the demise will affect the whole world.

Jesus (Yahshua) said, "There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." (Luke 21:11)

Meanwhile, do not panic. Pray, and keep your faith in Jesus (Yahshua), and His word. If possible, have at least a month's supply of food and water (ideally up to 6 month's supply) that you can rotate through. Also, be sure to make plans and strategize with friends, family and/or neighbors.

For more directions and advice on preparations for a catastrophe, power outage, etc.., you may visit disaster preparedness sites, on the web or YouTube.

The good news for those who follow Jesus (Yahshua) and obey the Bible is found in Psalm 91. The Lord will protect His genuine followers from His wrath.

This is a time for the true Church of Yahshua ha'Mashiach (Jesus) to shine. Get ready for a great harvest.

All glory to the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

BIG FAIL: America’s Cultural Christianity
The following 7 points contrast the bright light of Scripture against America’s dark, culturally influenced Christianity and reveal how far America’s Christianity has strayed from the foundation of the prophets, apostles and Messiah himself. Cultural Christianity is carnal and an invention of man; a stark contrast to the liberating and empowering counterculture revealed in Bible Scripture.
by Jonathan Israel

Isaiah 9:2,
The people that walked in DARKNESS have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the LIGHT shined.”

Are you a member of cultural Christianity? At the end of this article, honestly consider whether or not you are truly a God-pleaser or merely a man pleaser, one who is a follower of the Lord or a follower of man. The answer will surprise many of you and extremely liberate the Lord’s chosen, who have been temporarily deceived by doctrines of demons and bound up by man. 

Scriptures warn believers that obedience to the Lord and His word will lead to persecution.

Cultural Christianity honors the POPULAR and says you are doing something wrong if people get angry with you or simply reject you when you share the gospel message.

Luke 6:26, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Luke 6:22, “Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil for the Son of man's sake.” 2 Timothy 3:12, “…all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” Matthew 10:22, “And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endures to the end shall be saved.”

Scripture places the kingdom of God above culture, ethnicity and government.

Cultural Christianity puts nationality and ethnicity before or above the kingdom of God and gives preeminence to government regulations above Scripture. By placing faith in ungodly political leaders and esteeming worldly citizenship above their heavenly citizenship they fail to be the salt and light Abba designed them to be.

During the Nazi era, the German churches placed nationalism above the Word of God and watched silently at the GENOCIDE of Jews. Today, Americans, and many minority churches in America give greater honor to their ethnicity than the collective global body of true believers who follow Christ.

Philippians 3:3, “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickens; the FLESH (red, white, black, Russian, American or Chinese) profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  Ephesians 5:11, “…have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” 2 Corinthians 5:20, We are “…ambassadors for Christ…” Philippians 3:20, “…our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,…”

Scripture inspires believers to publicly and boldly speak truth in all humility to those in position and power who are in opposition.

Cultural Christianity yields to those in power rather than insist on the righteousness and truth of God’s word and ways.
Carnal Christianity is silent as Muslims kill and eradicate Arab Bible believers in the Middle East and North Africa. They won’t even mutter a peep as homosexuals trample the Lord’s holy Covenant of marriage with the help of the anti-Christ-styled US Government.

John the Baptist warned King Herod to repent; Mark 6:18, “
For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.” Even Yahshua spoke out. When he heard the report that Herod wanted to stop His ministry with the threat of death, He said, “Go tell that fox, ‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.” Acts 9:29, Saul openly disputed against the Hellenist Grecians, who had many FALSE GODS and IDEOLOGIES that were opposed to the Gospel of Yahshua/Jesus.

Scriptures commands believers to regularly bring corrections and rebukes against sin, falsehood and doctrinal errors.

Cultural Christianity tolerates and facilitates all manner of false doctrine and accuses you of “causing division” or being “hateful” if you OPENLY reject that which Scripture reveals is sinful, deceitful, corrupt or false.

Hebrews 3:19, “Be NOT carried about with divers and strange doctrines.” 2Timothy 3:16, ALL Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:…” 2Corinthians 10:5, “…casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God …”  2 Timothy 4:2, “Preach the WORD; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and DOCTRINE.”  Titus 1:9, “…holding fast the faithful WORD as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.”  

Scripture preps believers for Spiritual warfare, not carnal warfare, by equipping believers with Spiritual weapons, an understanding of the real enemy and faith in the Lord.

Cultural Christianity preps for battles against flesh and blood with a primary emphasis on worldly preparations and faith in man made weapons.

2 Corinthians 10:4, “For the WEAPONS of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;…” Psalm 20:7, “Some TRUST in chariots and some in horses, but we TRUST in the name of the Lord our God.” Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle NOT against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Luke 12:22, “And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.” Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Scripture emphasizes SOWING the word of the Lord.

Cultural Christianity emphasizes that “SOWING” means to GIVE money.

However, new Covenant Scriptures teaching or instructing believers to SOW are referring to sowing the seed of the WORD of the Lord. Mark 4:14,
The sower sows the WORD.”

Scripture teaches believers that the Lord loves judgment and that they too must make right judgments.

Cultural Christianity says, “Yahsua/Jesus did not come to judge” and “we are not to judge”.

1 Corinthians 6:2&3, “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by YOU, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?” John 7:24, “Do not judge according to appearance, but JUDGE with righteous judgment.” Jeremiah 9:24, “…I am the Lord which exercise loving kindness, JUDGMENT, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight,..” John 9:39, Yahshua said, "For JUDGMENT I have come into this world,…”  Isaiah 26:9,For when (The Lords) judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”

WARN THEM of THE WRATH TO COME! Mark 16:15, Yahshua said, “Go into ALL the world and preach the gospel (REPENTANCE as well as remission of sin) to ALL creation."

Flee, Get OUT!
Yes, It’s Biblical to Run, Flee and Get Out When Corruption Rules a Nation or When God Warns of Judgment Coming on a Land

Lot fled the land of Sodom after being warned of impending punishment.

Genesis 19:12-15, Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.” So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking. With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

David fled and hid from Saul who wanted to kill him.

1 Samuel 19:11-12, Saul sent men to David’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David’s wife, warned him, “If you don’t run for your life tonight, tomorrow you’ll be killed.” So Michal let David down through a window, and he fled and escaped.

Jesus’ parents were warned to flee Israel to avoid the corrupt government leader.

Matthew 2:13-14, And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring you word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:…”

As an adult, Jesus left Jerusalem to hide from evil and corrupt leaders who wanted to kill Him.

John 8:58-59, Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds. John 7:1, After this, Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him.

Paul fled when a pagan government wanted to arrest him.

2 Corinthians 11:32-33, In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.

Leave, Flee, Run and Get OUT of Babylon!

Jeremiah 49:30, “Flee quickly away! Stay in deep caves, you who live in Hazor,” declares the Lord. “Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has plotted against you; he has devised a plan against you.

Jeremiah 50:8-9, “Flee out of Babylon; leave the land of the Babylonians, and be like the goats that lead the flock. For I will stir up and bring against Babylon an alliance of great nations from the land of the north.

Jeremiah 50:16, Cut off from Babylon the sower, and the reaper with his sickle at harvest. Because of the sword of the oppressor let everyone return to their own people, let everyone flee to their own land.

Jeremiah 51:6 & 45, “Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves. “Come out of her, my people! Run for your lives! Run from the fierce anger of the Lord.

The United States is quickly morphing into a tyrannical police state as demonic spirits gain more influence and increase their control of the governing authorities; local and national. The result of such spiritual evil and decay will be unprecedented oppression, imprisonments and eventually the death of multitudes.

Persecution of Bible believers who follow Jesus in the USA will intensify to plundering, incarceration and even death. Meanwhile, the judgment of the Lord our God will continue to manifest as He lifts His hand of favor and protection off of this land. Punishments will come.

While there are other evil nations, no other nation on earth is more aggressively opposed to the Lord and His Holy Covenants than the United States. Please consider the following;

The USA is actively defiling the Lord’s holy marriage covenant exclusive to a male and female union, is feverishly seeking to divide the holy land of Israel covenanted to Judah (Jews), has outlawed the Bible and prayer in schools, targets Christians in the military, and increasingly criminalizes followers of Jesus (Yeshua the Messiah) for obeying His commands.

And this does not even take into account that the USA has murdered at least 50-million babies in and out of mommy’s belly, is the world’s largest exporter of pornography, and has an international policy in the Middle East that results in an increase of terror and genocide of Bible believers at the hands of Muslims.

Soon the US Government will bring it's road show home. Will you remain silent then?

Revelation 18:4-5, And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Understanding the soon to come, final and Fourth Beast, One-world Government

Daniel 7:19-25, “Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell—the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully. As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time."

So, while we may still have time to escape the rising tyranny and oppression in the USA, where is the ultimate safe place to find refuge from the violent?

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—from violent people you save me.” (2 Samuel 22:2), (Psalm 31:3), (Psalm 46:7)

A WARNING for those who plan to stay in the US and fight against a demonically controlled government;

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” 2 Corinthians 10:3-4

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12


"And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration." Revelation 17:5-6

You're concerned that Russia will destroy your "great" nation, but stupidly ignore that your own government is slowly and methodically destroying the heritage of the Lord. Meanwhile, in your "great" nation; Bible Scripture is outlawed in your schools, babies are killed in and out of mommy's belly, Abba's marriage covenant is defiled, porn and violence overflows your land to the nations and your government supports terror and genocide of Bible believers in the Middle East and North Africa.

MERRY WHAT?

My Daughter's Dream of the Future
Every now and then, some have a dream that is overwhelming, vivid and alarming. This is the dream my daughter just had this month (April 2013).

editor@ connectionmagazine.org


(Job 33:14-18)
For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, And conceal pride from man, He keeps back his soul from the Pit, And his life from perishing by the sword.

Shannah's Dream About America's Future

In the beginning of my dream, I was in a garage parking lot when all of a sudden, cars started to move but there was no one in them. They started to drive over the side and crashed. (government manipulated crashes)

Sirens were going off and the police were after me. Helicopters were everywhere and the police were all robots because the police squads didn't have a human in the car; they drove on their own (like drone planes). Everything was being manipulated by technology.

The police were starting all the crimes that were taking place. They started car accidents and then they would just come up to people and kill them if they felt like it.

Strange thing was people were selling cocaine openly in hotels, houses, and on every street corner, but the police did nothing to stop that.

Everywhere I went, I noticed there were cameras. In order to go into a store or any public place, the people had to pass security. If they were rejected, the cameras would shoot at them. The robot cops would shoot at them as well.

A robot caught me and was about to shoot me, but then at that moment I woke up.


(Editor's note 12/16/2015, my daughter Shannah provided further details of her dream. She descibed government controlled communal living, (tight quarters like a cruise ship) where pyramid shaped boxes were left at the doors of most homes. Somehow she knew that homes without the pyramid boxes meant residents were not on drugs. It appears that sober minded people were more of a threat to the government than those who were out of touch with reality. If the dream is true, future Government will be the ultimate tyrannical dictatorship police state that will make the Islamic terror pale in comparison.)

Future one-world Government! All the DNA of the murderous and defiled one world governments of the past combined with the dragon's (satan) authority. Revelation 13:2,
And the beast which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD, and his feet were as the feet of a BEAR, and his mouth as the mouth of a LION: and the DRAGON gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Kicking God out of America - Loss of Peace and Total Destruction Coming
As the US Government is losing it’s collective mind trying to handle the financial collapse of the nation, they are forging ahead with laws and policies that are totalitarian and their policy is that God must go. Bible prophesies Great military defeat now lies ahead for America.

The US is NOT a great nation as money-loving and deluded people erroneously affirm. The US Government does not want God and is escalating it’s war on God, His word, His Covenants, His people and all He stands for. 

America has outlawed prayer and the Bible in public schools, while protecting a plethora of atheistic and carnal belief systems, false religions and secular doctrines by their anti-Christ laws.

The US Government has recently begun targeting Christians in the military, even challenging chaplains for praying in the name of Jesus. How great is that for a nation of so-called liberty and religious freedom?

US Government Decides Which Love is Greater

The US Government has decided to redefine God’s Covenant of marriage that has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia. Now you have more rights in the US if you are a man who calls it “love” to have sex with a man, than a man who declares his love for the Lord by standing up for the integrity and sanctity of God’s holy Covenant of marriage.

Now, so-called ‘loving’ homosexual acts are protected in America as US Government moves to outlaw those who choose to love God, His word and His Covenants.

The US destroys our children by making laws in favor of those who have faith that a person of a different gender is trapped in their body. The US further destroys our children by outlawing the expression of those who have faith that the Lord lives inside of them and they are who God made them to be.

The US Government has also said they will fight terrorism wherever it is found; yet hypocritically, they attack God’s Covenant land of Israel by coercing the nation of Jews to divide their land with the Muslim Brotherhood terror group, Palestinian Hamas.

The US foreign policy has also overthrown secular leaders in the Middle East and North Africa only to replace the political vacuum with Muslim Brotherhood terror puppets. This US policy has resulted in the advanced and escalating terror and murder of Arab Christians in Egypt, Libya, Iraq and other Muslim-populated nations.

The US Government continues this policy by funding and weaponizing Muslim terrorists to now invade Syria to help with the overthrow of President Bashar Assad. The CIA funded Syrian civil war has greatly escalated and now results in the murder and genocide of Syrian Bible believers.

Meanwhile, President Obama and the US Government remains eerily silent as this murder and genocide of Arab followers of Jesus increases at the hands of their Muslim neighbors, as well as organized Muslim Brotherhood Islamic terror groups.

The United States has been and is increasingly saying no to God, His word, His Covenant and His people. They have been fighting God’s Covenants more than any other nation in modern history and they are identified in the Bible as ‘Daughter Babylon’.

Daughter Babylon is described as an end of the age nation that rises to great power and falls before the final “Beast” one-world government can arise. After the second angel announces the fall of Babylon, a warning goes out to the world by the third angel warning that those who take mark of the beast government will suffer eternal destruction. (see Revelation 14)

At the time of it’s fall, identifiers of the end-of the age Daughter Babylon include being the world’s strongest nation militarily, wealthiest nation, filled with a mingled mixed multitude of people from the nations of the world, discovered to be opposing the Lord, defiled the nations with it’s corrupt ways, breaker of the bones of God’s Covenant people and the destroyers of His heritage.

While it’s true that the land of the original Babylon is largely uninhabited desert land, there is a modern, great structure built in the region and it’s called “Fortress of America”. It is the United States Embassy and greatest seat of power in the region that was once ancient Babylon.

Multi-nation ambush to be sent against ‘Daughter Babylon’ destroyers of God’s heritage!

Jeremiah 50, “I set a trap for you, Babylon, and you were caught before you knew it; you were found and captured because you opposed the Lord.

“The Lord God has said, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.

“Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she hath done, do unto her: for she hath been proud against the Lord, against the Holy One of Israel.”

How will America behave before its prophesied destruction?

The depraved, mad and evil USA plans to force vaccinations on its citizens by penalty of law.

The United States plans to force all of its citizens to receive an electronic chip that will be medically inserted into their bodies, as Obamacare doctrines describe is scheduled to happen as early as 2017.

There will be an overthrow of the US Constitution, which has practically begun in so many ways by executive decree.

The attack against Christianity in America will increase to plundering, imprisonment and eventually death in some cases. Followers of Jesus as well as Jews will be oppressed and not be free to leave the nation.

Those who oppose the fallen, corrupt and evil US Government will the marked as ‘belligerents’ and imprisoned without trial and held indefinitely. Those marked as belligerents by the current administration are ‘border control advocates’ who disagree with illegal entry to the US. Also, gun owners, militia members, abortion opponents, Bible believers, Constitutionalists, Veterans and others with conservative ideology are now considered to be more of a threat than Muslim terror.

Even now the noose is being set by the US Government to militarily put down any political dissent by the states.

Most recently the states of Texas and Utah publically declared that they refuse to submit to a Federal overthrow of the Constitution and the rights of citizens to bear arms. Subsequently, the Federal Government just announced Jade Helm 15, where covert military operations will begin in the Southwest this year. The map for the Jade Helm military exercise lists both Texas and Utah as “Hostile”.

What direction does the Lord have for His followers?

Jeremiah 50, “Remove out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he goats before the flocks.

“The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God, the vengeance of his temple.

“Therefore hear ye the counsel of the Lord, that he hath taken against Babylon; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.”

Jeremiah 51 also confirms God’s direction for His followers, “Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves. Babylon was a gold cup in the Lord’s hand; she made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.

“Come out of her, my people! Run for your lives! Run from the fierce anger of the Lord. Do not lose heart or be afraid when rumors are heard in the land one rumor comes this year, another the next, rumors of violence in the land and of ruler against ruler. For the time will surely come when I will punish the idols of Babylon her whole land will be disgraced and her slain will all lie fallen within her.”

The United States does not want the Lord God or his laws. They are beginning to see what life is like without God and His laws. He will fully remove His provision and His protection.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Now, you will see what life is like when the Holy Spirit is no longer welcome in America.

No Holy Spirit, no freedom!

Unless you repent America, the loss of freedom will be followed by utter destruction!

"Jesus" is NOT the Son of God’s Name!
by Brian Israel & Jonathan Israel

Before we show you how The Savior’s erroneous name change to "Jesus" occurred in just the past 400 years, we must first preface this article with a declaration that we honor our heavenly Father/Abba, the Holy One of Israel, the Mighty One of Jacob, the one and only true God of all creation, who sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins; and by the power of His Holy Spirit, He resurrected from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. This article will expose the great error of the name “Jesus” and reveal the truth about the Saviors name.

Although we are not educated in linguistics and our ability to speak Hebrew is limited, we have just enough of the Holy Spirit residing in us to know how to distinguish between truth and lies, between fact and fiction. We will show you how the name “Jesus” is neither a translation nor a transliteration… not even close!

BE WARNED! The name “Jesus” is actually a faulty renaming of Our Lord and Savior.

Scripture instructs us to test and to PROVE all things (1 Thessalonians 5:21). In order to help you see and know the truth about The Messiah’s name, a primary objective of this article is to help you understand the difference between translation and transliteration.

A translation takes the meaning of a word and matches it with a word in another language with the same meaning. Conversely, a transliteration is not an attempt to convey meaning; rather, it is spelling a word with the alphabet of a different language to allow the reader to correctly pronounce the foreign word.

Simply stated, translation is an effort to declare the ‘meaning’ of a word, and transliteration is an attempt to match the ‘pronunciation’ of a word. With that said, we are attempting to answer the conflict, strife, contention and debate over the failure to correctly translate The Messiah Savior’s name, and expose the horrible attempt to rename Him “Jesus”.

Most understand that Bible Scripture was not written in English and that there was an obvious need for translation from the original Hebrew and Greek texts. Interesting to note, the vast majority of modern English Holy Bible translations teams are largely in agreement.

Unfortunately, the modern translators made a very egregious error regarding the Son of God's original Hebrew name. They did NOT translate it; rather, they ignorantly accepted the renaming of the Savior, a process which began 2,000 years ago with a failed attempt to merely transliterate, rather than translate the Lord's Hebrew birth name to Greek.

Using the erroneous 2,000 year-old Greek transliteration “iesous” in place of the Hebrew name Yahshua, our Savior was later RENAMED “Jesus” under the direction of Catholicism within the past 400 years.

It is very important to note that the letter ‘J’ did not exist in any alphabet prior to the 14th century; in the 1611 King James Bible the letter “J” was absent, and the name you now know as Jesus was written with an “i”, the Greek letter for “y” and spelled "iesous". The “us” was added to “ieso” by Greek translators to assign masculinity or male gender to the name. So, the question remains; what is the Son of God’s TRUE name?

Over 2,000 years ago in two separate events, the angels of the Lord provided both Joseph and Mary with the name of the Child of God entrusted to them. The Hebrew birth name of our Savior is now pronounced by most modern day Hebrew followers of the Messiah as "Yahshua" and "Yeshua" (“Yeh Shah” is modern Hebrew for Salvation).

We’ve discovered that a proper transliteration of the Son of God's name would either have a ‘yeh’ or ‘yah’ sound, so the word “Jesus” is most definitely not a transliteration.

Clearly, it’s difficult to simply rely on modern Jews for the proper name pronunciation due to a non-unanimous agreement. This approach at name pronunciation leaves us with a feeling of loss.

Undoubtedly, we know the saviors name is of great importance as Scripture declares; our salvation comes by no other name given among men, it is the name above all names, demons tremble/flee and miracles are performed in this name. So do we just continue to pray, worship, teach and trust in the word "Jesus", which is neither a transliteration or translation of the preeminent name, the name above all names, or do we pray for the TRUTH to be revealed?

Good News!

Although there’s not yet a consensus on the exact Hebrew ‘pronunciation’, most, if not all, do agree that the direct translation or meaning of our Savior’s Hebrew name in English is “Salvation” and “Deliverance”.

So, while the pronunciation of our Savior’s original Hebrew name remains a point of contention for many, the general consensus is that the accurate English translation or meaning of His name is “Salvation and Deliverance”. Correctly translated to English, we are correct to call our Lord “Savior and Deliverer”.

Correct understanding and faith that our Messiah alone is Savior and Deliverer, trumps the sound of the tongue. We avoid speculations of Hebrew pronunciations and disagree with the RENAMING of our Savior to “Jesus”.

Due to most of the world’s inability to speak Hebrew, the Creator provided a solution that is actually really simple. Avoiding the modern day contention as to whether Messiah’s name begins with a “Yah” or “Yeh”, we were instead led to translate it’s meaning. This simple formula of translating, rather than transliterating, reveals that the true name of our Savior has been there the entire time!

Bible Scripture has clearly translated His name for us to English. Not only have we now learned the correct translation for yahshua/yehshua/yahuwah/iesous/iesus/jesus, we’ve also learned His virgin mother called Him Immanuel, which is translated “God Is With Us”.

Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)

Immanuel = God With Us
Messiah = Anointed One
Yahshua = Salvation/Deliverance

God with us, the Anointed One, Salvation and Deliverance

So, you don’t speak Hebrew? No worries! We encourage you to leave the pronunciation assumptions, strife, conflict and contention behind! May you find your rest and hope in Immanuel the Messiah Yahshua, "GOD WITH US, THE ONE ANNOINTED SAVIOR and DELIVERER".

Now, when you do a study of the word “Salvation” in the Old Testament, you will be pleasantly surprised how our Messiah has been revealed from the very beginning.

NAME MYSTERY SOLVED: by God’s Own Testimony
Prepared by Jonathan Israel

What’s in a name? Is it important to know the truth about God’s name? Have you discovered God’s own testimony about “THE NAME”? This article reveals the Lord’s own testimony and solves the mystery about “THE NAME”.

There is a “name above all names” declared in Scripture but it is now under great attack. The “only name given whereby we must be saved” is also revealed in the Bible but rejected by lying and deceitful workers. Although, it is important to note that while many are simply deceived by doctrines of demons, some are truly still seeking the truth.

Good News! You don't have to be deceived any longer! The mystery of “THE NAME” has been revealed.

Babylonian Influenced Christianity and Messy Messianics

After living in the United States most of my life, and attending Christian and Messianic assemblies, including that of a well known Messianic author and teacher, I had the privilege and blessing to then work in Jerusalem for a Messianic publication.

Sadly, I discovered that Babylonian influenced Christianity in America is largely lukewarm and biblically illiterate, and the new Messianic religion, mostly filled with disillusioned former Christians, regularly rejects and distorts many new covenant Scriptures. It is a kindness to simply say the Messianic religion is very messy.

Yahshua, Joseph and Mary

It was in Jerusalem that I would study alongside a Hebrew reader of the Bible. Only in very rare instances would there be a slight and insignificant difference between the Hebrew version and English version of Scriptures. But it was very clear that Joseph and Mary were instructed by an Angel of the Lord to name their God-given, Holy Ghost delivered child Yahshua (Yes, Jesus' true and original Hebrew name is Yahshua, which sounds like Joshua, but is often pronounce 'Yeshua').

(link Joseph) (link Mary)

Since the Greeks translated our Saviors name from his original birth name of Yahshua and called Him “Jesus” (“sus’ sounds like the Greek god Zeus), many are now confused about the name of our Lord and Savior, even being deceived to deny some or all new covenant Scriptures. Thankfully, God has revealed His own witness/testimony about “THE NAME”.

Some have been so offended by the Greek translation of Yahshua's name to "Jesus" that they have adopted names for worshipping God based on assumption. They attempt to pronounce the tetragrammaton YHVH, which is found in old covenant Scriptures. Some pronounce it as "Jehova" and others say the letter 'V' is a letter 'W' and pronounce the four Hebrew letters as "Yahweh". These and other attempts at pronouncing YHVH are erroneous at best and a doctrine of demons at worst. Hebrew readers simply read YHVH as the Hebrew letters they are: Yad Hay Vav Hay.

The Chinese call our Lord and Savior, Yeesu. The Spanish pronounce His name Haysus. Most Americans still call him by the Greek translation, Jesus. After all, the Lord is looking for us to worship Him in Spirit and in truth. However, for many, they want to return to the original name ordained by the Lord and confirmed by the angels.

On behalf of those seeking the truth of our Lord's original Hebrew name and what God has to say about the importance of worshipping and honoring His Son's name above all, for the rest of this article I will use the Hebrew name that Mary and Joseph were instructed to use and not the Greek influenced and translated name "Jesus".

What is the ONLY NAME given in which we MUST be saved?

Acts 4:10-12, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by THE NAME of Christ (Hebrew: Yahshua the Messiah) of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

What name is above every name?

Philippians 2:5-10, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ (Hebrew: Messiah Yahshua): Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore Abba also hath highly exalted him, and given him a NAME which is ABOVE EVERY NAME: That at the NAME of Yahshua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;…”

So, what is the highest name in both this world and the world to come?

Ephesians 1:17-22, “That the God of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ/Messiah, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,FAR ABOVE all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, AND EVERY NAME that is NAMED, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,…”

In what name should we give thanks, glory and praise to God?

Colossians 3:17, "And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do ALL in THE NAME of the Lord Yahshua, giving thanks to God and the Father/Abba by him."

2 Thessalonians 1:12, "That THE NAME of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our Abba and the Lord Yahshua the Messiah."

PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER: Abba/God's Testimony of “THE NAME”

1 John 5:9-13 & 20,  "If we receive the witness/testimony of men, the witness/testimony of Abba/God is greater: for this is the witness of Abba/God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believes on the Son of Abba/God has the witness/testimony in himself: he that believes not Abba/God has made him a liar; because he believes not the record that Abba/God gave of his Son.
And this is the record, that Abba/God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of Abba/God hath not life.  These things have I written unto you that BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE SON of Abba/God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that you may believe on THE NAME OF THE SON of Abba/God.

And we know that the Son of Abba/God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in
HIS SON Yahshua the Messiah. This is the true God, and eternal life."

Who Does Satan Wage WAR against?

Revelation 12:17, "Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their TESTIMONY about Yahshua."

Revelation 20:40, "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the WITNESS/TESTIMONY of Yahshua, and for the WORD of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

What about the God-head? How did Jesus/Yahshua identify God by name?

John 14:23, Yahshua replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey MY teaching. My FATHER/ABBA will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them."

In what name did Jesus/Yahshua teach us to pray?

Matthew 6:9, “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father/Abba in heaven, hallowed be your name,…”

What name does the Holy Spirit teach us to call out to?

Galatians 4:6, "Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

Yes, Yahshua is the name above all names and the ONLY name by which we must be saved and He taught us how to pray and to whom we should pray.  And “daddy” is a name that our Father in Heaven understands in any language.

Editor's note: John 5:23, 1 John 2:23 , 1 john 4:14, 2 John 1:9, These Scriptures reveal that we worship the Father by worshipping Jesus/Yahshua, and the fine sounding argument to just worship the Father is a doctrine of demons. The reality is that you can only know the Father if you first know the Son and He reveals Him to you, Luke 10:22, Isaiah 9:6.

WARNING: Washington DC to Cease as Capital
by Connection Magazine
Editor Jonathan Israel


The United States is going through a transformation or morphing phase, as it is no longer a Christian nation or a nation whose government embraces a Biblical foundation or mandate. And unless that foundation is restored, there’s NOTHING Christians can do to save the doomed nation (Psalm 11:3). Now engaged in several offences against the Father of all creation, the US is and will be partaking in Biblical judgments. This article provides evidence of guaranteed ramifications that lie ahead for Washington DC, as the US conspires with the UN to divide the Lord’s covenanted land of Israel.

A BIG Fall

The Supreme Court illegally legislates from the bench and makes OPINIONS diametrically opposed to Bible Scriptures, ultimately holding all of history in contempt. The Obama Administration makes executive orders that are the antithesis of the US Constitution, and the legislative branch, having no pulse of it’s own, languishes on life support ready for burial.

President Obama correctly declares that the United States is no longer a Christian nation, but extremely exaggerates his claim the US could now be considered a Muslim nation, though it reflects his true desire.

Meanwhile, as homosexuals publicly parade lewdly and without restraint, American Christians are regularly imprisoned for sharing Bible Scriptures on the ‘wrong public sidewalks’ or ‘too loudly’ according to a police officer’s opinion. Even now the US has stepped up it’s attack by imprisoning people for Bible Beliefs, such as Kim Davis, a county commissioner in Kentucky, who refused to submit to homosexual beliefs that are contrary to Abba’s law as well as Kentucky law.

What else is on the agenda?

Continuing with a Middle East policy that favors Muslims and one that has escalated the murder and genocide of Arab Bible believers, whitehouse.gov reveals the Obama Administration’s desire and goal to divide the God covenanted land of Israel by giving it to the Muslim Brotherhood terror puppet, Palestinian Hamas. Giving no recourse to the nation of Israel to resist the terrorist occupiers in their land, the US hypocritically maintains their own right to resist terror “wherever it is found”.

Meanwhile, after much delay, the US Government plans to use it’s paper tiger, the United Nations, to move forward with plans to make a UN resolution during the upcoming 70th UN session, beginning September 15, 2015, declaring a Palestinian state within Israel’s sovereign borders.

Warnings Delayed Agenda, Delayed Punishment

Obama and the UN had plans to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state within Israel’s borders in September of 2011. However, after the White House received several communications in the spring and summer of 2011, containing Biblical warnings for any nation dividing the Lord’s covenant land of Israel, the United Sates capital received warnings in the form of a very uncommon and rare 5.8 earthquake, which was quickly followed by an equally rare hurricane. Making these two unique DC events more historically significant was the fact they occurred during the same week and damaged the Washington Monument and several DC buildings.

Very soon after the earthquake and hurricane hit Washington DC in August 2011,  prior to the September 2011, UN session, President Obama publicly announced that it was neither the time nor the right forum to divide the nation of Israel by unilaterally declaring a Palestinian state with a UN resolution. I think he got the message.

What nations do shall be done to them!

Today, there is talk of making Jerusalem an International City, a city of the world belonging to no single nation. If the US and UN succeed in this latest attempt to divide the Lord’s holy and covenanted land of Israel, you can expect to see Washington DC cease as the US capital, as the judgment of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob decrees:

“The day of the Lord is near for ALL NATIONS. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.” Obadiah 1:15

Goodbye Washington DC

So, the USA’s ongoing plans to cause Jerusalem to cease as Israel’s capital will only seal the fate of Washington DC to cease as the US capital. In fact, the UN will cease to have New York as their current capital seat of corruption. And these events will happen as the hand of the Lord allows.

Perfect Timing!

Can we know the timing of the judgments of the Lord for any nation breaking covenant and/or dividing His holy and covenanted land of Israel?

First, the Lord reveals the judgment for any nation merely burdening themselves with Jerusalem: “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3

The mere desire to be burdened with Jerusalem, results in that nation or nations to be cut in pieces; issues and events will divide their land and divide their people.

What is the Biblical timing of the Lord’s judgment?

“In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah (Jews) and Jerusalem, I will gather all nation and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial or what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.” Joel 3:1-2

Clearly, the House of Judah (Jews) returning to the land of Israel in 1948 is a sign of the restoration that signals a time of judgment for the nations; however, they were not yet restored to their ancient capital of Jerusalem until 1967. But was this then the time spoken of by Joel that the Lord finally restored the Jews and Jerusalem after 1900 years?

It was not until Russia released their Jews in 1990, to return to Israel that most Jews were able to be restored to the holy and covenanted land of Abba. Most, but still not all.

Biblically prophetic history was quietly made when Sephardic Jews were recently granted the right of return.

Only recently, the Sephardic Jews , those Jews expelled by Catholocism in 1492 Spain, have been granted the right of return to Israel, making it official that no Jews in the world are restricted from returning to Israel.  All Judah (Jews), including the Sephardim of Central and South America are now free to return to Jerusalem! (see Obadiah 1:19-21)

In fact, Spain just issued a right of return in June 2015, for the (descendats of) Sephardic Jews who left with Christopher Columbus and thereafter.

Clearly, the time of judgment for the nations is at hand. Repent, follow and serve the Lord Jesus (Yahshua) while you still have breath. The world is about to change drastically and many will be destroyed. But the Lord will quickly blind their weapons of annihilation before they make a complete end of the world.

Mark 13:20, "And except that the Lord had shortened those days no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened the days."

Temple Construction Has Begun!
by Jonathan Israel

My wife and I enjoyed living and working in Jerusalem, and we remember the buzz when Jewish leaders began making a call to rebuild the Temple of the Lord on the Temple Mount. Well, I have good news, construction on the Lord’s Holy Temple is under way and the foundation is already in place.

This article revealing the final Temple of the Lord is going to sadden many hearts because it is not what itching ears want to hear. Others will read this and shout for joy!

While Americanized Christianity has a fixation on a man made temple, our great God Yahshua ha’Mashiach has already kicked off construction of His one true holy Temple, and the foundation is available for all to see.

Temple revelation for true followers of Yahshua is found in Ephesians 2:19-22, “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the FOUNDATION of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ (Yahshua ha'Mashiach) Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the WHOLE BUILDING, being fitted together, grows into a HOLY TEMPLE in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a DWELLING PLACE of God in the Spirit.”

Sadly, church goers are increasingly more intrigued with an anticipated man made temple that an anti-Christ figure will set up shop in.

But even if another man-made temple was erected, the Lord Yahshua will just knock it down when He arrives to Jerusalem. Zechariah 14:3-4 and Ezekiel 38:20, “The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”

Clearly, the Lord has elected to build a spiritual Temple with the apostles and the prophets as THE foundation… and Yahshua is the chief cornerstone.

But how many so-called churches ignore the Lord's selected foundation of the prophets or Revelation? And how many times have you heard a so-called spiritual leader deceitfully dismiss the apostles, "I only follow the words of Jesus" or "let’s forget about what Paul wrote"?

Beware of such people as they unwittingly reveal that they’re building a house with a foundation DIFFERENT from the one that Jesus has already begun.
(see Ephesians 2:19-
22)

Meanwhile, ALL true followers of Yahshua are invited to be fitted together in the Temple construction, ‘you also are being built together for a DWELLING PLACE of God in the Spirit’.

True followers of Yahshua are also invited to partake in Temple building, 1 Corinthians 3:9-10, “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.

Are you being built on the Lord’s true Temple foundation or part of a man-made good idea of building God’s Temple?

1 Corinthians 3:16, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”

Who is the head of your temple? Who is the HEAD of your local fellowship meeting? Are you all brethren and fellow workers, or just a man-made leader or two and the rest sheeple?

One is your Teacher and One is your Father!


 Matthew 23:8-11, But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for ONE is your Teacher, the Christ (Messiah), and you are ALL BRETHREN. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Do you not know we are ALL co-workers in the Holy Temple of Yahshua?

Where Yahshua ha’Mashiach is the head of His House, the whole body of believers works together, Ephesians 4:15-16, “…speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the HEAD—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

Yes, ALL Yahshua’s men are His royal priesthood, not just one or two elected leaders from each congregation as factions (denominations) lead you to believe. We are all to be co-workers…

Revelation 1:6, (Jesus has)…made us kings and priests…

1Peter 2:5, “…you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

You are more than a money bag to be drained by constant weekly drones from leeching leaders who have an ungodly and morbid attraction to cashola.

What does God’s Temple look like as construction continues?

1Corinthians 12:4-11, “There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing's by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

Romans 12:6-8, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.”

1Timothy 4:14, Do not neglect the gift that is in you...”

Ephesians 4:15-16, “...grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

God’s Temple order extends into our homes…

Ephesians 5:23, “For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is HEAD of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.”

Hallelujah! The One True Holy Temple of God is being built!

2 Corinthians 6:16, For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

AMERICANIZED Christianity is an INVENTION of man and NOT built upon the FOUNDATION Christ has laid.

Flee Babylonian churches NOW!

Young Americans Can Claim Their Social Security Benefits Now!
by Jonathan Israel

Government laws have been changed (America’s marriage law) to provide benefits for men and women with gender identity confusion. Subsequently, the new law sets precedent for people who feel old inside, irregardless of the reality of their true age identity, to now qualify for and immediately receive their social security benefits.

Irregardless of the facts listed on one’s birth certificate, it is now en vogue and legal in the USA for one to demand and receive the government’s respect and benefits for
NOT internally identifying with the truth about one’s gender.

Gender identity crisis began in a big way throughout Americanized churches when they refused to follow God’s instructions for each gender. Clearly there is solid Scriptural doctrine for the role of a woman, and specific Scriptural doctrine for a man’s role; however, without outlining those clearly identified roles in this article, it is enough to point out that gender specific doctrines are ignored to the point of a major gender identity crisis in and now, out of the churches.

Meanwhile, the United States Government continues its opposition to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by redefining God’s holy covenant of marriage, supposedly to show respect and to provide benefits for all who are confused about their true gender and the sexual identity listed on their birth certificates.

The US has joined the fray and also ignores the truth, as well as the facts on one’s birth certificate, so they may pay respect to a person based on their personally perceived belief about gender and also to provide them with US Government benefits. That was the basic reasoning for the US Supreme Court to redefine marriage that has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia. Now, American law honors internally confused people with the right to a same sex marriage and all the US Government benefits of a God-ordained  male and female union.

Soon, those who want to marry multiple spouses will fight for and win their “respect” and benefits from the morally perverted and corrupted United States. It is a slippery slope and begs the question, 'how soon will the US allow “respect” for those who want to marry an animal or a child?'

Well, we all know that the US Government now pays their respect to someone who claims a sexual identity other than what the facts and their birth certificate reveals, simply because of a person’s self perception. So, will those who perceive themselves to be a septuagenarian (a person between 70 to 79 years old), irregardless of what the truth is and what their birth certificate reveals, now receive honor and respect from the US Government?

Do the new US laws open the door to give respect and benefits to all who feel they are a septuagenarian, irregardless of the truth simply because they feel old? Will all those under retirement age be able to get respect and social security benefits based on how old they feel inside?

Yes, because they have forsaken God and His laws, new US laws providing government benefits to a man who claims to be a woman inside has set the legal precedent allowing a 40 year old to claim retirement age.

So, how many people out there feel older than they really are?


Based upon the USA’s newest philosophy of law, the USA is now legally obligated to provide you with the social security benefits of a true retirement aged person no matter how old you really are on the outside as long as you feel old on the inside? Anything less would be discriminatory, disrespectful, biased and illegal.


Alarming to behold, the new American legal philosophy has opened the door for all who reject the truth to claim and live a lie.

Churches Fly Christian Flag Above US Flag

As the Confederate flag comes under attack and the colors of the rainbow covers the White House and the nation, there are churches in the United States who have had the epiphany that God’s Kingdom is obviously higher than the USA.

Responding with an attempt to honor the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, pastors have now decided to place the Christian flag above the US flag.

After noticing a nearby church flying the Christian flag above the US flag, Pastor Rit Varriale of Cleveland County, NC raised the Christian flag above the American flag in front of Elizabeth Baptist Church.

"Our typical flag etiquette is to have the American flag above the Christian flag. But when you stop and think about it, it should be our commitment to God first, then our commitment to country," Varriale said.

Could this signal the beginning of an awakening that is long overdue in the United States? Or is it just another pathetic Americanized attempt to identify as Christian without obedience to the Bible?

If the flag movement is merely based on the same old Americanized version of Christianity that keeps people biblically illiterate and left with a false sense of security, for simply showing up for a weekly meeting and throwing money in a plate, then the lukewarm church and the country will undoubtedly continue its hastening spiral to self destruction and judgment.

Divorcing America's Marriage Law
by Brian Israel

A challenge to God's people, a Declaration of Independence against the anti-Christ United States Federal Government, and a warning to homosexuals and all others who think to defile God's laws, commands, covenants or people. (videos below)

America has changed the definition of God’s covenant of marriage, which has been and is exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia. Now, US marriage contracts should be voided for anyone who elects to remove themselves from their American certification of marriage.

Now that America has redefined Jesus' covenant of marriage, which He has ordained as an exclusive union between a man and woman, we followers of Jesus have a duty to separate ourselves from this corrupt, vile, Godless, and seriously flawed contract.

Jesus instructs us to abstain from sexual immorality (Acts 15:29) and to not partake with pagan traditions (Jeremiah 10:2). America's new tradition of marriage is now both pagan and sexually immoral. We are compelled to chose between God’s laws and man’s laws.

All true followers of Jesus must rise up and take a stand against America's anti-christ attack against Jesus' covenant of marriage you hold dearly and by which you live. Be bold to declare to the world that you will not be forced to partake in or be associated with anything that brings dishonor and shame to your God, Jesus Christ.

"Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean… (2 Corinthians 6:17). It is a statute forever throughout our generations to distinguish between holy and unholy, and between clean and unclean...(Leviticus 10:9-10)

What is Covenant of Marriage?

Marriage is not a step to happiness. It is not something you do to obtain love or some emotion. Marriage is not a loophole to avoid the pain of loneliness. Marriage is a commitment to honor Jesus!

Followers of Jesus elect to marry because they fear Jesus, want to be pleasing to Him and trust that His direction for a lifelong faithful covenant is the right way.

Marriage is not a fairy tale or a guarantee to living a fulfilled life. Marriage is a symbol of the relationship Jesus has with His bride, the Church. Marriage is Holy and reserved only for the union of a man and woman who fear Jesus!

The United States’ Government has no right to handle Jesus' Covenant of Marriage. The United States’ Government has no authority over Jesus' definitions or laws.

Declaration of Independence

We followers of Jesus do not need government permission, approval, certificates, licenses or any other form of acknowledgment to enter God’s holy covenant of marriage. We renounce the authority the United States Government thinks they have over what is true, clean, righteous and holy regarding marriage or any other law, command or covenant of God.

A message to carnal governments, homosexuals, fornicators, adulterers and anyone else who does not love Jesus enough to follow Him or obey Him, God’s word says: "What right have you to declare My Statutes, or take My covenant in your mouth, seeing you hate instruction and cast My words behind you (Psalms 50:16-17).

Homosexuality, one of many sins leading to eternal death and destruction, has not won! The victory belongs to Jesus, our Great God, Lord and Savior now and forever!

Part 1



Part 2

It's time for Christians to separate from Americas marriage institution that honors the homosexual doctrine, dishonoring Jesus' doctrine and those who follow Him.

PROPHECY! USA Ignorantly Raising Up Own Destroyers!

June 2015

Death to America and A Sign from God!
The Lord will destroy the complacent, even from among His people as the following Bible Scriptures reveal and confirm. A failure of grapes and fruit in the USA will confirm God’s word of coming judgment. Muslim AMBUSH to follow!

Isaiah 32:9-11, "You women who are so COMPLACENT, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say! In little more than a year you who feel secure will tremble; the grape harvest will fail, and the harvest of fruit will not come. Tremble, you complacent women; shudder, you daughters who feel secure! Strip off your fine clothes and wrap yourselves in rags."

Yes, Isaiah confirms poverty, pain and persecution will come upon the COMPLACENT among the Lord’s people too. False security of worldly prosperity and earthly success will fail, including in the USA.

The Fall of America!

The United States made laws in the 1950’s declaring that political issues and public governing policies could not be discussed from the pulpits. Sadly, most of American churches became 501c3 compliant churches, a creation of the state and not God. Most Christian leaders COMPLACENTLY yielded to the demonically controlled government and their doctrine of demons.

In the 1960’s, the US Government outlawed prayer and the Holy Bible from public schools. Worldly influenced, Americanized religious leaders remained silent, submitted and COMPLACENT.

In the 1970’s, the United States legalized the abortion of babies. Demonically manipulated Americans looked the other way and many churches began embracing a carnal doctrine of self-help, success and prosperity.

Meanwhile, over 40 years have passed since then and as many as 70-million children have been torn apart, limb from limb, and killed, in and out of the God-ordained matrix of safety.

In the 1980’s, America’s porn industry saw the advent of videotape, allowing pornography’s evil temptation to gain easy access into US homes. The heavily sedated and inundated American people winked, and many indulged without objection. Soon after, their children were easily surrendered to the rising cesspool of degradation spewing forth from their televisions.

The rise of the World Wide Web has only served to disseminate the extreme temptation, and now the USA is considered the purveyor of 90% of the world’s porn.

With this grossly obvious lack of moral high ground, the USA has since engaged in many futile and unwinnable wars, used the CIA to instigate civil wars resulting in the death of multitudes of innocent civilians, and even now the USA threatens war with Russia and China. America would be amiss and deceived to believe their victories of the past ensure dominance in the future. After all, Daughter Babylon falls before the final one-world beast government takes preeminence. (Revelation 14:8-9)

The USA is Guilty of the blood of Christian martyrs!

The US policy in the Middle East and North Africa has resulted in the rapid advance of the Muslim Brotherhood terror group, and the unrelenting terror and genocide of Arab Christians.

Unconscionably, along with President Obama, the American people have been apathetic and largely silent to this advancing satanic agenda. Even now, the USA has been discovered, on multiple occasions, providing weapons and money to Muslim terrorists for the purpose of a Middle East agenda that includes overthrowing Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. Horrifically, many more Arab Christians, including entire Christian villages, have suffered genocide at the hands of these US-backed Muslim terrorists.

In line with its extreme embrace of corruption and perverseness, America’s evil silence to the flowing blood of Christian martyrs solidifies culpability . So, how much time do you have before the US Government brings its road show home? Will you be silent then?

Daughter Babylon CAUGHT Opposing the Lord and Destroying His Heritage!

Jeremiah 50:11&24, “Because ye were glad, because ye rejoiced, O you destroyers of mine heritage, because you are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls; I set a trap for you, Babylon, and you were caught before you knew it; you were found and captured because you opposed the Lord.”

There is only one nation on earth that is opposing the Lord and His holy Covenants in the following manner; has outlawed the Bible and prayer in public schools, controls and/or influences messages from church pulpits, penalizes Christian owned businesses for submitting to God’s word regarding abortion and homosexuality, attacks those in the military who openly reveal their faith and/or obedience to Jesus Christ, strongly coerces Israel on the world stage to divide their God-Covenanted holy land with the Hamas Muslim Brotherhood terror group, AND now the United States has decided to further oppose God by redefining His holy Covenant of marriage that has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia.

Meanwhile, most in America sit idly by, hushed in their COMPLACENCY as the demonically controlled government aligns with the homosexual agenda to further destroy the Lord’s heritage.

America is Daughter Babylon

There are many Biblical and prophetic identifiers of the end-of-age rich and powerful nation called ‘Daughter Babylon’, and the many detailed descriptions currently define the United States. The Lord warns His people in this latter days nation of power, privilege and prosperity to “come out, go out, flee and run”.

However, the Lord is NOT warning them to run or flee from Babylon to avoid persecution, since that is what all His true followers are called to. In 2 Timothy 3:12, His word says, “All who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus WILL suffer persecution”. And 1 Peter 2:21 says, “To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.”

So, why is God telling His people to flee from such wealth, comfort, power, prosperity and success?

The Lord is warning His people to flee His planned vengeance on gross evil. It is His coming wrath and punishment that God wants His people to avoid as the following Bible Scriptures confirm.

Jeremiah 51:6 & 45, “Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord’s vengeance; He will repay her what she deserves. Come out of her, my people! Run for your lives! Run from the fierce anger of the Lord.

So, when you hear those say, “I will just stay in the US and suffer persecution”, they are right that they will suffer persecution. But they are foolish to stay and be destroyed by God’s wrath and punishment after receiving such a warning from Him to “come out, go out, flee and run”. (see Hosea 4:6)

Muslim Nations Called by God to AMBUSH the world’s rich and powerful nation, Daughter Babylon!

Unless the United States repents, an ambush from a coalition of nations will rain complete destruction on the land. The leading nations of the ambush that the Lord is calling and inviting to destroy Daughter Babylon include Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz. Also, the Lord calls for the Medes, and those nations that they lead, to attack and totally destroy Daughter Babylon.

Ararat refers to Turkey, Ashkenaz refers to modern day Germany but was originally a part of ancient Turkey, and the Medes were one nation with Persia, which is now modern day Iran. Minni is a mystery nation as far as I can discern.

Iran has the largest population of Shia Muslims and is the leader holding sway among the Shia Muslim nations. And Turkey has the largest population of Sunni Muslims and is the emerging leader of the Sunni Muslim nations. Yes, God is calling the Muslim nations to come together to destroy the end-of-days wealthiest nation, "hammer of the earth", filled with a mixed multitude of nationalities that has engaged in the destruction of God’s heritage, which includes His Covenants.

The COMPLACENCY of the entire world is also costly as the following Bible Scriptures reveal God’s thoughts, nature, ways and warnings when dealing with such haughty unrepentance. (Isaiah 6:9)

Tyrannical Leadership to Follow Your Complacency!

Amos 6:1-3, “Woe to you who are COMPLACENT in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria, you notable men of the FOREMOST nation, to whom the people of Israel come!
 
“Go to Kalneh and look at it; go from there to great Hamath, and then go down to Gath in Philistia. Are they better off than your TWO kingdoms? Is their land larger than yours?
You put off the day of disaster and bring near a REIGN of TERROR (Kingdom of Tyranny).”

Destruction of animals, birds, fish and ALL mankind!

Zephania 1:2-3 & 12 & 18, “I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord.

“I will sweep away both man and beast; I will sweep away the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea—and the idols that cause the wicked to stumble.

"At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are COMPLACENT, who are like wine left on its dregs, who think, ‘The Lord will do nothing, either good or bad.’ “When I destroy all mankind on the face of the earth, declares the Lord,…
 
“Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord’s wrath.” In the fire of his jealousy the whole earth will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live on the earth.

Proverbs 1:32-33, “For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the COMPLACENCY of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”

2 Peter 3:9-14, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, The EARTH also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

“Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be DILIGENT that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”

Editor’s note: Beware of those COMPLACENT ones headed for destruction in God’s wrath and punishment who say, “I know that’s what the word of God says, but I’m not doing it.” And those who say, “Sure, it’s the word of God, so what?” (see Romans 12:2)

EGYPT CONFIRMS PALESTINIAN HAMAS ARE TERRORISTS
Egypt has just confirmed what President Obama will NOT; the Islamic Palestinian Hamas is a terrorist organization.

On Saturday, 2/28/15, an Egyptian court has ruled that Hamas is a terrorist organization. Egypt passed the Terrorist Entities Law, spelling out how to identify terrorist groups and organizations. Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt also banned.

The Palestinian Hamas, the Islamist group governing the Gaza strip, has been in a conflict with Egypt since the military coup in 2013, when the Egyptian people demanded the ouster of former President, Mohammed Morsi, a high ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood. In an overwhelming display of public opinion, the Egyptian people adamantly rejected Morsi, Islamic rule, Sharia law and those in its association; the Muslim Brotherhood terror group. Meanwhile, unwilling to admit or expose Muslim terrorism, President Obama forges stronger ties with the politically charged Muslim Brotherhood, whose doctrinal goal is world domination.  Working his evil Islamic agenda, the president also continues to pressure Israel to give their sovereign land to the politically motivated Muslim Brotherhood terror puppet, the Palestinian Hamas.

Do you know why the escalating murder and beheadings of Christians does not offend President Obama enough to speak up for them? Do you know why he has praised Islam and condemned Christianity at the same cadence of escalating Muslim terror?

Do you know why the US Government fails to acknowledge that the politically charged and rising Islamic terror is powered by Qu’ran doctrines, which instruct Muslim followers to violently subdue all people and all nations?

Ignorantly sympathizing with Muslims or something more sinister, the US president has embarked on an immoral agenda as he removed secular Middle East leaders from power in countries such as Egypt and Libya, only to replace them with Muslim Brotherhood hacks.

Meanwhile, the Islamic murder of Arab Christians increases almost daily at the hands of US backed Muslim terrorists in Syria. Do you know why? As the world watches, President Obama is extremely focused on the overthrow of Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, only to replace him with the next Muslim Brotherhood puppet leader.

Al Qaeda Muslim terrorists, now called ISIS and ISIL, militarily equipped by the US (‘by accident’) on numerous occasions, are now being directed to invade Syria.

The Sweden-based Assyrian Network for Human Rights in Syria said it has documented the Muslim terrorists abducted over 250 Arab Christians in Syria (Feb. 2015). So, it looks like the plan for US boots on the ground may finally be acceptable to the American people. Then, it’s goodbye, Assad… hello, Muslim Brotherhood. The insane US Middle East/North Africa policy, which has assisted the advancement of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political power base, means more Bible believers will continue to DIE at the hands of Islamic terror.

Soon, the fruits of this evil road show will come to our land of the free no more.

President Obama, and by association all of America are now GUILTY of the blood of martyrs currently being spilled by Islam, that politically violent and bloody religion that modern history shows the USA has already militarily supported in Egypt and Libya.

Soon, everyone will bow before the Lord of lord’s and King of kings, Jesus the Christ (Yeshua ha’Mashiach).

Repent, judgment is on the way.

US GOVERNMENT CRUSHES
CHURCH'S BONES

Government Ordained Churches Have Historically Been a Hindrance to The Gospel and Harmful to True Believers

The true Church of Jesus Christ was formed during a time of rejection and great persecution from the government; the one-world government of Rome, as well as from their manipulated and controlled corrupt priests lording over Israel’s organized religion.

Over 400 years later, After the government of Rome sanctioned their catholic church, the true followers of Jesus suffered again at the hands of the government-authorized church. Arguably, millions of believers were tortured and killed by this unholy Roman Government and church alliance from the 5th through the 17th Century.

Fast forward to the 20th Century; the church in America began submitting to government control and manipulation in the 1950’s, after the Internal Revenue Service introduced a financial benefit for all compliant churches. The 501c3 status for church organizations meant the IRS would provide them with tax exemption in return for their submission to a policy that hindered the church from making a political stand during elections, thus hindering the church from impacting the laws and issues affecting the whole of society.

Please note that the primary demand of a godless, satanically-controlled government is for churches to be under their submission and to have no voice in politics or the laws of the land. Shining the light on this US policy is the Book of Revelation, which reveals that satan’s end-time power play is to establish and empower a POLITICAL (beast) government, which is to be endorsed by a whorish false church.

The Americanized church bought the lie of satan and has denied and/or forgotten their God-given political or governing authority. The godless US Government has allowed the church to be priests but stopped them from being KINGS. Yet Jesus has shed his blood to give us an identity that has no separation of church and state.

“Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And has made us KINGS and PRIESTS…” Rev 1:5&6

The Americanized church sold out for the monetary reward of tax exemption, and the US Government ultimately received liberal governing authority from the church to advanced it’s evil agenda without interference; first, by outlawing prayer and the Bible in public schools in the 1960’s. Then, by legalizing the murder of baby in mommy’s belly in 1973.

For the sake of worldly gain, churches submitted to 501c3 status and rules. America’s churches have now become organizations consigned to government control and manipulation.

In Matthew 6:24, Jesus warned us that we could not serve two masters. We can only choose one alliance, not both. The evidence is seen in how the churches forsook God’s leadership and word regarding their role in society and surrendered to secular governing authority.

In Mark 16:15, God’s word says “go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel to every creature”, but these churches only go where the US Government tells them they can go. They only do what the government gives them permission to do.

Americanized churches do not take the gospel to the school children because they honor Government rules above God’s commands. They have surrendered the school children to the government that teaches demonic doctrines, such as the atheist mantra that they evolved from apes.

By abandoning their calling and election from God, these government-controlled submissive Churches have now consigned their children to unholy school teachings that encourage them to engage in sexual activity, homosexuality and abortion.

In spite of the US Government’s ever increasing expanse of gross darkness over the people; including being the world’s number one exporter of porn, abortion and homosexual marriages, the compromised, government ruled church hides behind four walls and a pulpit, ignoring Bible Scriptures, blindly declaring the United States to be a great nation.

With no noticeable godly or holy impact on our modern society, government-controlled Christianity in America is faltering invention of man. Of course, there are those mega churches focused on self-fulfillment and worldly success with a fleshly blend of entertainment that are increasing in number. But overall, those “claiming” Christianity have been on the decline, while, satan worship and spiritualism is on the rise.

Meanwhile, the church in China is seeing greater growth in overall numbers. But the growth is not happening in China’s government-controlled and authorized churches. Rather, it's the underground Christian church that's increasingly fruitful. They're making such an impact that the Chinese government is now actively and aggressively persecuting these true followers of Jesus with an intensity not seen since the social revolution. Nevertheless, many believe that China will soon be home to the largest Christian population on earth.

So, in spite of increased government opposition, how is it that Christians in China are able to operate with such power and effectiveness; achieving real growth; the salvation of souls and revival in their communities, while the church in America flounders and diminishes?

Unlike Americanized Christianity, the followers of Jesus in China choose submission to the Lord’s kingship above the lordship of government control. They have elected to be obedient to God’s word and ways above the word and ways of man. They are willing to suffer for their faith rather than to compromise for worldly government favor. They are willing to die for Jesus.

Americanized Christianity does not know, nor does it walk in the effectual fullness of the power of the Lord, because they do not follow Him according to His word, His ways or His Spirit. They have chosen to forsake God’s commands, so now their Government masters have followed suit; morphing into an evil reflection of that lawless iniquity.

As government-controlled churches drives out the true and faithful to Jesus, and as the USA breaks the bones of the church, the true believers who follow Jesus are going out from Babylon and going into the wilderness, where the Lord has prepared a great harvest.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.  Isaiah 43:19

ARE YOU READY TO DIE?

Timely instructions and empowering God-breathed incentive are for all who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying. Share these pearls with your children with due diligence. The hour is later than most care to believe.

The world has entered a time the Bible calls ‘the beginning of sorrows’ and the time of the ‘birth pains’. Jesus told us what would follow the birth pains of worldwide suffering…

Matthew 24:9, Jesus said, you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.

John 15:20 Jesus said, Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also…

2 Timothy 3:12, In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted…

Mark 13:12, Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.

Revelation 13:7-8, “...It was given unto him (the final one-world Beast government) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Daniel 12:6&7, “...How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?” Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

How true followers of Jesus will overcome evil and falsehood in the world;

Revelation 12;11, …they overcame him (Satan/Devil) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Many faithful have gone before us who were willing to lay down their lives rather than forsake the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob…

Daniel 3:28, …Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego …yielded their bodies, that they might NOT serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

After the third angel announced warning against worshipping or taking the mark of the final one-world beast government or the man of perdition, the following decree came from Heaven;

Revelation 14:13, …Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.

Why are those who die for not taking the mark “blessed”?

The following Bible Scripture explains the added blessing for those who died for Jesus rather than to take the mark and worship the beast or his image.

Revelation 20:4, …I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

2 Timothy 2:11-12, …Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him…

Is Jesus your example? In obedience to Father God in Heaven, Jesus came to earth and willingly laid down His life at the right time.

John 10:14-18, Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. (Jesus told the House of Judah, the Jews), I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

Do you have the mind of Jesus our Messiah?

Philippians 2:5-8, Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,even the death of the cross.

1 Peter 1:24&25, For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Philippians 1:20-21, According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

1 Peter 1:3-5, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for YOU, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Homosexual Pope?!

Rock icon Elton John is now singing the praises of Pope Francis, for the Catholic leader's willingness to reconsider homosexual marriage as viable.

EJ has been emboldened in his homosexual lifestyle thanks to the new leader of the catholocism.

A well known Bishop reported that the pope of catholicism declared a biblically contrary message regarding homosexuality. A message that emboldens homosexuals like Elton John, rather than convict them of sin.

The London Daily Telegraph reports that Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the outspoken archbishop of New York, said Pope Francis had told him: “Rather than quickly condemn them, let's just ask the questions as to why that (homosexuality) has APPEALED to certain people."

What, what?? Is he joking? That's akin to asking an adulterer why he thinks sex with the new woman is better. Give me a break.

Now, homosexuals like Elton John are not alarmed or convicted about the sin of homosexuality that the word of the Lord CONDEMNS. Rather, after hearing news of the catholic pope's lukewarm message, they are embracing perverted sex to their own destruction.

All any modern, so-called minister of the Bible needs to do to obtain rock star status these days, is to preach another gospel, partial gospel or a different gospel than the one Jesus preached.

Consider America's pop television evangelist from Houston, who has decided to preach love and the forgiveness of sins, while refusing to declare what the Bible says about sin, repentance and the lake of fire.

In spite of all of the false doctrines being spewed by mainstream religion, the word of the Lord found in the Bible will stand the test of time and eternity. In fact, none of the perverted Americanized Christianity has caught our Creator by surprise either.

Holy Scriptures have warned for millennia that the days were coming when people would no longer endure the sound DOCTRINE of God's word found in the Bible. (see 2 Timothy 4:3)

Scriptures reveal that the Pope of catholicism is not even fit to be a Bishop in God's true Church; "For a bishop (elder), as God’s steward, must be blameless; he must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of goodness, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled; he must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound DOCTRINE and also to confute those who contradict it." Titus 1:6-9

Mr. Pope, you must repent of your false ways and turn your life over to Jesus. Only through the blood of Jesus can yours or anyone else's sins be forgiven. Neither Mary nor purgatory can save one soul. Church membership can't save anyone either.

And those who engage in perverted sex are destined for Hell, unless they repent.


"We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound DOCTRINE that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me."

1 Timothy 1:9-11

TRUE! Believe it or Not

1) The Bible actually teaches Jesus’ followers to deny themselves and NOT to live in pursuit of pleasure. Rather, they are to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness. Matthew 16:24, Romans 15:1-3

2) Followers of Jesus are instructed and empowered to overcome selfish ways and receive the ability or power to be godly and to be Christ-like. As believers learn to deny self, they become free to be more and more like Jesus. 1 Peter 4:1-6, Galatians 4:19

3) Judging? Absolutely! Only hypocrites are warned NOT to judge. The Bible commands true followers of Jesus that they are to judge! John 7:24, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3, 1 Timothy 5:20

4) Believers in Jesus are not only commanded to be perfect, but they are also commanded to be holy. Matthew 5:48, 1 Peter 1:165) Contrary to false teachings, the “seed” represents the word of God and NOT money. Luke 8:11, Mark 4:14, Matthew 13:18-19

6) While it is not necessarily wrong to associate with people of influence and/or success, Scriptures specifically directs followers of Jesus to associate with and befriend the poor and lowly. Romans 12:16, James 2:1-4

7) While false teachings insinuate that the poor are cursed, Jesus declares that the poor are “blessed”. Matthew 5:3, James 2:5

8) Scriptures tell us not to associate with anyone named a believer who refuses to work or is living in certain blatantly identifiable sins. The Bible also warns true believers to AVOID those who have the appearance of being religious but who DENY the power of God. 1 Corinthians 5:9-13, 2 Thessalonians 3:6, 2 Timothy 3:5

9) The book of Revelation in the Bible does reveal the end of the age, political power play of satan/lucifer/devil, backed up and erroneously legitimized by a false prophet, whorish religious system. Before Jesus returns, the devil gives all of His power and authority to the final one-world government that will encapsulate all of the diabolical and barbaric attributes of the world’s ancient governments, and yet be even worse and more demonic.

Revelation chapter 13

10) The Bible declares that we must go through MUCH tribulation to enter God’s Kingdom, Acts 14:22. Jesus said we would have tribulation in the world, John 16:33. But many are unprepared and will become offended and fall away after the great tribulation to come. They will then hate and betray true followers of Jesus unto death. Matthew 24:10, Matthew 13:21, 1 Peter 4:1

11) The divine power of healing is not exclusive to a pastor as many Americans assume. James 5:14, actually guarantees healing among the true believers of Jesus who seek out church elders (plural) for prayer.

12) The word ‘denomination’ refers to divided nations, which God’s Kingdom is NOT. Denominations are sects and factions one from another. Scripture warns that “FACTIONS” will NOT inherit God’s Kingdom. Galatians 5:19-21. Thankfully, salvation comes exclusively from Jesus to all who repent of their sins and follow Him as Lord and Savior.

NEW WORLD ORDER PLANNED

While charlatans are making money with a primary focus on prepping for the prophesied coming false new world order, Bible Scriptures reveal God's coming new world order most are not really prepping for.

(John 12:25)

…Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.”

(Hebrews 1:10-12)

All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll; All their host shall fall down As the leaf falls from the vine, And as fruit falling from a fig tree.

(Isaiah 34:4)

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

(Revelation 6:12-14)

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

(Revelation 21:1-5)

NOT ALL CHILDREN OF GOD

"Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning.

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister."

1 John 3:7-10

Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

When once the master of the house is risen up, and has shut to the door, and you begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not or where you come from:

Then shall you begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in your presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not or where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity.

THE WRITING is on THE WALL! DESOLATIONS DETERMINED AGAINST THE NATION THAT OPPOSES THE LORD!!!

Jeremiah 50, "How broken and shattered is the hammer of the whole earth! How desolate is Babylon among the nations! I set a trap for you, Babylon, and you were caught before you knew it; you were found and captured because you opposed the Lord."

Do you see a nation working hard to defile the Lord's Covenant of Marriage that has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia?

Does that same nation strive to divide the Covenant land of Israel, in which land the Lord God placed His name and set apart as His possession?

And does that same nation strive against the Lord God's Covenant people and word of His Covenant by outlawing the Bible, prayer and the name of Jesus from their schools and now from their military?

There is only one nation on earth that is currently and actively striving against Jesus and His Covenants in such a manner. You may learn more about this nation's future in Jeremiah 50.

HOMOSEXUALITY REJECTED IN INDIA, SO.....

A female official from India with diplomatic immunity was arrested in New York on a visa fraud charge on December 12, and subjected to a strip search that included invasive body cavity inspection and swabbing.

Coincidentally, India’s Supreme Court just upheld a law outlawing gay sex. Did the United State's extreme and overwhelming passion for men sexing with men have something to do with the sexually invasive treatment of the female diplomat?

Looks like there are rights and freedom of speech for all except those who disagree with homosexuality.Wake up, America!

MYSTERY:
The SPIRIT of LAWLESSNESS

by David Wilkerson

"For the mystery of iniquity does already work" (2 Thess 2:7).

The Greek word Paul uses for iniquity in this passage means, literally, "lawlessness." Therefore, the mystery is one of lawlessness, meaning that multitudes are going to act without law or restraint.

Yet, this lawlessness is not simply a rebellion against the rule of man. It is not about rebelling against civil authority or committing robbery, rape or murder. These things do provoke God's wrath, but the mystery of lawlessness goes much deeper. It is an outright rejection of the truth that is in Christ, a casting aside of God's Holy Word and rebellion against the restraints of Scripture!

This spirit of lawlessness is rampant in our nation today. It is the force behind the legislation that seeks to banish God from our society and the same spirit that Satan used to deceive Eve when he told her, in so many words, "God is easy; He won't punish you for disobeying. You can eat the fruit and indulge your lust and you won't have to pay for it!"

Today Satan is using this same lie to convince masses of believers that they can indulge their sins without paying any penalty. It is a demonic scheme to pervert Christ's gospel of grace and turn it into a message of licentiousness. Tragically, many lukewarm Christians are succumbing to this spirit of lawlessness.

Paul says the Antichrist will rise to power because people will be

blinded and deceived by their own sin: "After the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivable-ness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved"

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-10).

Satan will deceive masses of people by convincing them of a subtle but powerful lie, just as he convinced Eve: "God doesn't punish sin!"

Paul says this deception will come "with all deceivableness ...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" (verse 10). He then adds, "For this [reason] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie" (verse 11).

The apostle is saying, "Those who refuse to obey or respect God's Word will fall under a powerful delusion. At first they will wink at their sin and justify it. But soon they will actively seek out a message of easy grace. They will invent a grace that is far beyond what God intended.

His grace never leads to license-it always leads to repentance."

Prophecy:
Major Earthquake to Divide Jerusalem


From the north to the south, from the Red Sea to the biblical Sea of Galilee, Israel was recently shaken by six earthquakes in six days. Home Front Command declares that Israel will experience a major earthquake. The Bible confirms that they are correct.

Two quakes reportedly shook Israel in the 11th century causing widespread destruction, and one in 1837 estimated at magnitude 7.0 killed more than 6,000 people.

According to a special Israeli committee that recently convened to address the earthquake issue, a major, 7.0 Richter scale earthquake in Israel could now leave some 7,000 people dead, 8,600 wounded, almost 10,000 trapped in rubble and around 170,000 people homeless. A large quake could totally destroy 28,000 buildings and leave 290,000 buildings with light to moderate damage.

So, when can Israel expect such a quake to occur? Most experts predict a serious earthquake in Israel within the next two decades.

The following Scriptures shine the light on the major earthquake prophesied to hit Israel in the near future, and it’s much bigger and more intense than any expert can fathom;

“It will come about on that day when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” declares the Lord God, “that My fury will mount up in My anger. In My zeal and in My blazing wrath, I declare that on that day there will surely be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”(Ezekiel 38:18)

“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne saying, ‘It is done.’ And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. The great city [Jerusalem] was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell….” (Revelation 16:17-19)

“A day of the Lord is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered and divided up within your very walls. I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.” (Zecharia 14:1-5)

Yes, the Bible makes it clear that “desolations are determined” against the Lord’s Holy Land of Israel, and a major earthquake is at the epicenter of such prophecies. So, why is the Lord using earthquakes to shake His land and His people?

The Lord is announcing His soon return and desires that His people prepare their hearts, repent of their sins and turn back to Him, His word and His ways. The prophesied mega quake coming to Jerusalem is also a warning that speaks to the destruction of Israel’s enemies who think to divide and possess the Lord’s Holy Land.

The word UNSEALED!
The Holy Spirit is Giving Understanding and Revelation NOW!

And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” (Daniel 12:9-10)

Jesus said, “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding…” (1 John 5:19)

Jesus said, “And when He (Holy Spirit) has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (John 16:12-13)

“...the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

“...the Holy Spirit (is) given to those who obey Him.” (Acts 5:32)

Carter Confirms Fall of USA , Defends Snowden

Former US President Jimmy Carter attacks massive un-Constitutional spying on citizens, agrees with Snowden and exposes corruption of the USA’s so-called democracy.

Will the un-Constitutional Government now have Carter targeted before he awakens more Americans with additional eye-opening damning info about their fallen government?

“America does not have a functioning democracy at this point in time,” said Former President Jimmy Carter. According to German newspaper Der Spiegel, the statement was made on July 16, in a closed door meeting of Atlanta Bridge, a research organization that focuses on political and various other issues.

Earlier in June, in a statement of support for NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, Carter said nations are well within their rights to offer asylum to Snowden. He also criticized the United States Government for spying on all law abiding citizens when he told CNN that “…the invasion of human rights and American privacy has gone too far.”

Carter said that it has been "beneficial" for the American people to be notified of their loss of freedom to privacy.

Carter has once again boldly exposed and criticized the United States, and it is only a matter of time before he shares more insightful and damning information about the one-time democratic government that has now yielded to a policy of Executive orders rather than to the US Constitution. Is Carter now a “threat” to homeland security?

Just as diametrically opposed to the US Constitution as invading the privacy of every citizen, are the new executive orders in these hijacked United States, which declare that the President can imprison indefinitely without a trial or kill anyone merely deemed to be a “threat”. So, does this mean that Carter may be next on their list for assassination by a drone or some mysterious method?

Wake up, America!

WARS Imminent in MIDDLE EAST

Egypt's Civil War is scheduled for July 26, and Israel is ready to stop the Iranian nuclear threat.

Is the following Bible prophecy about to happen?

"And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom." (Isaiah 19:2)

The leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, stated that "this month, On July 26, a historic battle will be waged; a Jihad by the Muslim Brotherhood to regain control of Egypt."

Egyptians are stymied that the United States and other Western powers appear to continue their support of the Muslim Brotherhood, despite the fact that a majority of Egyptians claim the group won the last election fraudulently.

Meanwhile, Israel Prime Minister, Bejamin Netanyahu declares he's prepared to stop the Iranian nuclear threat to destroy Israel.

Modern technological advances mean that Iran could now conceivably be ready to fulfill it's long-standing threat to destroy Israel, within a few weeks.

"Our clocks are ticking at a different pace. We're closer than the United States. We're more vulnerable. And therefore, we'll have to address this question of how to stop Iran, perhaps before the United States does," said the Israel leader.

But we will remember the promises of the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah (Jews) and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Are All Sins Created Equal?

Romans 6:23 ...the wages of sin is death...

1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, (but) there is sin not leading to death.

For Example...

Matthew 12:32 ...whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

But...

Mathew 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him.

So, is all sin really equal?

John 19:11 Jesus (told Pilate), "...the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin."So, isn’t Jesus comparing sins?

More examples...

Jeremiah 7:26 Judah... did worse than their fathers. 

1 Kings 16:25 (King) Omri did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and did worse than all who were before him.

1 Timothy 5:8 ...anyone (who) does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

So, will Jesus Judge people differently?

James 3:1 ...you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

And...

Luke 20:46-47 "(those)...who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation."

Hebrews 10:29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?

So, what sins are created equal?

Lust equals adultery!

Mathew 5:27-28 "You have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not commit adultery. (Jesus say's)"...that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

And…Hate equals murder!

1 John 3:15 ...(one) who hates a brother or sister is (considered) a murderer...

Man's thoughts vs the Lord's thoughts...

Mark 7:20-23 (Jesus say's)..."What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, and evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."

Isaiah 55:8-9 "...my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Praise be to...

2 Timothy 4:8 ...the Lord, the righteous Judge...

More food for thought...

Romans 2:12 ...as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law...

1 John 1:9&10, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

See Truth About The Law...

People who embrace sin, for the most part, believe no one has a right to make a judgment because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

They also believe all sin is equal and that we are all sinners. What they don't know is that true followers of Jesus (Yeshua) have been justified freely...through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

What they also don't know is that whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God (1 John 3:9).

Finally, but not least, what they don't know is that all sin is not equal. See Truth About Judging at Connection Magazine.org

A TIME of JUDGMENT for the WORLD

The evidence of mounting and impending judgment against the nations of the world is revealed in ancient Prophecy. For the first time in almost 2,000 years, the people of Judah (Jews) have been reunited with Jerusalem as Bible prophecy foretold would occur. This single manifestation of Bible prophecy that began in 1967, when the Jews were reunited with Jerusalem, signals a time of Judgment for the nations of the world.

"For behold, in those days and at that time, when I RESTORE the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of my people and my heritage Israel,..." (Joel 3:1&2

The USA has murdered 50 to 70-million babies in and out of mommy's belly, outlawed the Bible and prayer in our schools, systematically attacks Christians and conservatives, set up Executive orders that are the antithesis of the Constitution, arms Muslim rebels while seeking to disarm US Citizens, and brazenly attacks the God-ordained Covenants by corrupting His Covenant of Marriage and actively working to divide His Covenanted land of Israel. Is this God's Spirit? Really?

Not All Sins Are EQUAL

People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.

(Proverbs 6:30-32)

The Judgment of The Lord

Are you prepared for the increase in judgments that will be poured out upon the earth?

Psalm 9:16, The Lord is known by the judgment He executes…

Revelation 14:7, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

Psalm 9:8, He shall judge the world in righteousness, And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.

Revelation 19:11, Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

Psalm 110:6, He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries.

Isaiah 26:9, When your (The Lord’s) judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.

Psalm 99:3, For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.

Joel 3:1&2, “For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah (Jews) and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.

And the false ‘profits’ say there will be peace and prosperity, ignoring that there will be judgment instead.

Micah 3:11, Her heads judge for a bribe, Her priests teach for pay, And her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the Lord, and say, “Is not the Lord among us? No harm can come upon us.”

Isaiah 3:14, The Lord will enter into judgment With the elders of His people And His princes: “For you have eaten up the vineyard; The plunder of the poor is in your houses.

1 Peter 4:5, They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

1 Peter 4:17, For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

Jeremiah 9:24, But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

John 9:39, And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”

John 12:31, Jesus said,  “Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.”

Revelation 18:4-10,  And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.  For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.  “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

CHURCH CHALLENGE

Most Americanized or Westernized Christians have been duped into believing that they can't take the Gospel into many places, such as political office, our children's schools, and government buildings to name a few.

It's amazing how duped they've been to disregard Scripture, which tells us to take the Gospel everywhere and to every creature.

If they still believe the lie of 'separation of church and state', then why are the pastors and churches silent as the Obama Administration crosses the line of 'church and state' and attacks the God-ordained Covenant of Marriage, which is exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millenia?

Stand up for Yeshua (Jesus) and the Bible now, or get out of the government controlled churches and BE the Church.

Be controlled by flesh and error, or be the Church that Yeshua died for you to be, Remnant.

Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.

SEVENTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS in DEBT...

...and what is the driving, motivating passion of President Obama at this time?

President Obama has declared his strong desires to help men who sex with men to gain "respect", yet he disrespects U.S. Bible believers and is currently attacking the God-ordained Covenant of Marriage, which has been exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millenia.

President Obama provides military weapons and support to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists in countries like Egypt and Syria; meanwhile, he's working hard to take guns from law abiding US citizens.

So, what are the President's plans for the economy?

Wake up, America!

Isaiah 58:1, “Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins."

Titus 1:13, "Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith..."

************

Happy New Year???

As President Obama continues to help the Muslim Brotherhood and their terror puppet groups gain political power over more nations, the UN is helping the Muslim terror group, Hamas, prepare to steal Israel's sovereign land. Of course, President Obama backs this corrupt maneuver. Once the UN sets the precedent of taking land from a sovereign nation, the UN will practice their power dismantling the rights of other sovereign nations. Get ready!

As Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood president overthrows true democracy in Egypt, and sets up Sharia Law, he is rewarded by President Obama with fighter jets and war tanks. Thank you US taxpayer.

Meanwhile, back in the US, back in the US of A, President Obama continues his assault against the US Constitution. Will he wait for the UN to help him take the guns away from US citizens or will he continue writing illegal executive orders that are the antithesis of the Constitution?

Well, the one world beast government is in it's infancy as the US has gone over the fiscal cliff, but don't tell anyone. Most won't wake up and smell the coffee until they hit the bottom. When the freefall is over, when they crash land and the dollar is declared dead and buried, it will catch multitudes unprepared to face the horrible ramifications.

Good news! The coming escalation and unprecedented persecution of Bible believers in the US will awaken true believers from their slumber.

United Nations goes rogue and helps Muslim terror group, Hamas, make a big move towards taking Israel's sovereign land.

Will President Obama now use the U.N. to take control of internet and to take guns from U.S. Citizens? When websites like this are removed, flee U.S. immediately.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration agrees with Muslim Brotherhood takeover of democracy in Egypt. Here comes Sharia Law. No matter; the Egyptian leader will kill as many people as he wants but President Obama won't stop him. It's civil war for Egypt compliments of Barry.

America's Election Signals Judgment

One presidential candidate promotes the anti-Christ doctrines of Islam and the other candidate promotes the anti-Christ doctrines of Mormonism.

Should U.S. voters elect someone whose religion worships satan's brother?

Should they vote for someone whose leaders and prophets claim they will overthrow the U.S. Government and Europe here at the new millennium?

Should the American voters support a presidential candidate who believes their cult Mormon group has replaced the Jews as the Lord's covenant people? The operative word here is "replaced".

Should U.S. citizens vote for someone who believes that the Messiah has given up on a return to Jerusalem, but will return and set up His Kingdom in Missouri instead, so Mormons can rule the world and eternity?

Search "Mormon Agenda Exposed" before you continue your blind support for Mitt Romney.

Just because President Obama is helping to set up the Muslim Brotherhood around the world and will increase his attack against the Constitution and Bible believers, does that mean we embrace the representative from another anti-Christ religion who may do the same or worse?

2 John 1:8-11 prohibits Bible believers from siding with anyone who promotes false doctrine.

Also, beware of the doctrine of man that says you are to elect the "lesser of two evils". A vote for evil is a vote for evil and many will be duped into siding with and promoting evil in this upcoming election.

America, now is not the time to vote for a man; it's time to repent for our sins and turn back the the One True Holy Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

This election is a sign that the United States is facing impending judgment!

Islam and The Quran

Exposed!

What does Islam teach Muslim followers? The following verses from the Quran expose the wicked and murderous theology being taught on U.S. soil.

[3.85] ...whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.

[5.51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

[4.89] They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

What does the Quran teach about other non-Muslims?


[4.56] (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

[3.151] We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority, and their abode is the fire, and evil is the abode of the unjust.

[9.123] O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

[2:191] ...kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.

Does Islam teach Muslim followers to war against non-Muslims?


[8.65] O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand.

[8.12] When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.[8.39] ...fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do.

[9.111] Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

[17.33] ...do not kill any one whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause, and whoever is slain unjustly, We have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided.

[9.5] ...when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

[9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

[9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.

[33.61] Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.

Editor's Note: These Quran teachings have been posted because there has been great deception declaring that Islam is a religion of peace and that Muslims serve the same God as Christians and Jews. For the record, Muslims serve the Babylonian moon god, Allah, which is further evidenced by their crecent moon. The true people of holy faith serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who will soon send Yahshua ha'Mashiach to deliver His true followers after much tribulation.

The United States and much of American Christianity has turned their backs on the authority of the word of the Lord and His laws published in the the Holy Bible. Therefore, what is determined from enemies without and enemies within will be the Lord's measured judgments on an unrepentant people, in and out of the Church. Repent!

Obviously, Connection Magazine can't stop what the Lord is allowing. We can only declare truth and expose darkness.

The U.S. Constitution was not set up to protect doctrines of Jihad and the murder of non-believers. However, as long as doctrines of terror and the murder of non-Muslims are erroneously protected by the U.S. Government, all citizens should be watchful, prayerful and ready to protect and defend their homes and families.

Thankfully, at this time most Muslims do not practice the wicked doctrines of killing non-Muslims that they are being taught. Meanwhile, the stated goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to have Islam subdue and rule the entire world.

GEORGE FOX - the HOLY RADICAL

-by David Smithers.

In the year of 1647, a large man with piercing eyes named George Fox started preaching throughout the towns and villages of England. He prayed and fasted often, traveling with no other companion but his Bible. He proclaimed a gospel of purity, power and repentance.

When George Fox began preaching, many churches were dead and bound in man-made traditions and formalism. When the Church drifts into formalism, the world drifts into further ungodliness. The methods and appearance of George Fox to some, seemed quite offensive and extreme. It is sometimes necessary for God's prophets to be unconventional in order to thoroughly awaken the indifferent and hard hearted.

Soon after George Fox began to preach, he had a remarkable spiritual experience that lasted fourteen days. A certain Mr. Brown, while on his death bed prophesied many great things concerning Fox. "When this man was buried," says Fox, "a great work of the Lord fell on me." During this mighty baptism of the Spirit, Fox received a remarkable gift of discernment. "He seemed to be able to read the character of men by looking at them."

Miraculous healings also accompanied his ministry. Through prayer and the laying on of hands, the sick were often healed and devils were cast out to the glory of Christ. When George Fox preached men would shake and tremble. "The name Quaker was given to Fox and his followers because of the quaking of the men who came to scoff but stayed to pray." This remarkable power seemed to accompany the preaching of Fox wherever he went.

Fox preached that Jesus Christ is the author of a faith which purifies and gives victory over sin. He fervently exhorted men to pursue complete holiness rather than empty religious ceremonies. As a result, he was often beaten, stoned and driven out of town. It is estimated that perhaps no other man since the time of the Reformation was persecuted and imprisoned as often as George Fox. He usually went about the country on foot, dressed in his famous suit of leather clothes, which it is believed he made himself. He often slept outside under a tree or in some haystack.

Fox also often pointed out that what was commonly called the Church was only a building. He boldly declared that only the fervent believers of Christ were the living stones of the true Church.

"Above all George Fox excelled in prayer." It was his habit to wait in silence for the movement of the Holy Spirit and then begin to pray, causing whole congregations to be shaken and humbled under the hand of God Almighty. "As he prayed the power of God came down in such a marvelous manner the very building seemed to rock."

Through the ministry of George Fox, a glimmer of Apostolic power was revealed to seventeenth century England. He was a man of the Spirit in an age that emphasized theological and scriptural accuracy at the expense of the power of the Holy Ghost. He always stressed the importance of a Spirit filled life and refused to let dead orthodoxy be a veil for the works of the flesh.

If we as believers are content with a gospel that merely comforts our conscience and perseveres our traditions, then we are also content to forsake the gospel of Christ and the Apostles. God help us to truly seek the kind of praying and preaching that will once again make men tremble in the presence of Jesus Christ.

Editor's note: May the Lord Yahshua help us to yield to the Holy Spirit without rejecting or violating the Scriptures. May we study to show ourselves approved, standing on the word of the Lord, without resisting the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. A just balance is the Lord's delight.

Muslim Leader Confesses Doctrines of Killing

This is a true story that happened after the 911 terror attack, and the author, Rick Mathes, a well-known leader in prison ministry, has confirmed this account with Connection Magazine Editor, Jonathan Israel.

(Reportedly), the Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States. 

Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say.  The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.

After the presentations, time was provided for questions & answers.  When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: 'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel  (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?' There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!' I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'

The expression on his face changed from one of authority & command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.' He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'

I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?' 

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame. 

Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims' beliefs.

(Reports indicate) In twenty years there will  be enough Muslim voters in the  U.S. to elect the President! 

Editor's Note: As long as you still have breath, you can humble yourself before the King of Kings, God's Son, Jesus our Lord, and repent of your sins. John 3:16

Westernized Christianity Embraces US
Corruption as Judgment Looms


Editor@Connection Magazine.org

If there’s anything that makes me want to regurgitate when I hear it, the comment by many American pastors extolling the United States as a “great nation”, is high on the list. I mean, consider that the hospital down the street from the church building is killing baby in mommy’s belly, while the school next to the church meeting place is attacking the freedom and liberty of any student caught declaring Jesus as Lord or His Holy Scripture. But pastor calls it “great”.

Meanwhile, we’re supposed to believe it’s a “great nation” in spite of all the anti-Christ US laws that legislatively and judiciously outlaw the Bible and prayer. And now, even the name of Jesus (Yeshua) is under the same attack. But pastor calls it “great”

Perhaps the master, I mean the pastor ordains the US as a great nation because he’s free to fleece the flock by regularly preaching an erroneous doctrine regarding the tithe, which he then uses as a personal bank account to live the "American dream”. Or maybe, he’s so enamored by the US because the westernized version of Christianity says he can divorce his wife and hook up with his recently divorced secretary, in direct opposition to Scripture, which declares the spiritual leader is to be the husband of one wife.

Scripture teaches us that when people refuse to love the truth, the initial “judgment” includes being given over to unnatural lusts; men will lie with men, and likewise, women will sexually corrupt themselves with women. Clearly, the ever growing encroachment of homosexuality into much of westernized Christianity is a judgment and direct evidence of their refusal to love the truth, much less, practice the truth.

Mostly to blame are the church leaders, who often hinder the followers of Jesus from walking in the fullness of the freedom and liberty of the Holy Spirit. Many are not free to give what, where and when the Holy Spirit leads them, and many are stopped from practicing the gifts of the Holy Spirit declared in 1 Corinthians 12 through 14. Sadly, the blind guides are a primary hindrance to the Kingdom of the Lord, the one true creator and Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Scripture teaches us that we are to apply ourselves to love and good works, if we’re truly people of faith in Jesus. The Bible also teaches us to declare His word. We are to preach the Gospel of repentance, thereby exposing the sins that lead to hell and damnation. We are also to preach the remission of sins, and that only the gift of the Lord, through the sacrifice of Jesus’ painful suffering and agonizing death on a cross, can remove the guilt, shame and eternal damnation to hell that sin leads to.

Good works, along with declaring rebukes and reproofs of sin, in conjunction with the news of a deliverance from the wages of sin, for those who repent, represents a just balance and a more proper representation of Christ.

Sadly, the church of good works often does not comprehend the instruction to preach the Gospel and/or the power of the Holy Spirit. And very often, the church that declares Scripture regarding Jesus’ love and the forgiveness, fails to preach the full Gospel that includes the warning and need to repent of sin to receive forgiveness. Of course, you have many “Holy Spirit” churches that often think their words have replaced those of the Lord, leaving them and those around them biblically illiterate.

Remember, a just balance is the Lord’s delight. We need to walk in the full-Gospel of Jesus Christ, and in the power of His Holy Spirit, doing the good works that we have been saved and delivered to do as we proclaim His word.

The United States is clearly not a great nation, despite what many pastors declare. Yeah, I know they consider financial success great, and I understand that they consider military might to be great; however, the true shepherds of the flock consider God’s Kingdom to be great. Refusing to bow down to the idols of worldly success and earthly strength, they consider the Lord’s righteousness, holiness and faithfulness to be great.

So, when the idols of US financial and military strength soon fall in the presence of the Almighty Lord and Savior, many will avert their eyes away from the fallen kingdom and seek first the Kingdom of the Lord and His righteousness once again.

The persecution of the true Congregation is on the way, leading to a great falling away as when a man beats an olive tree with a club. The fall (destruction) of Damascus is a harbinger of that.

Irregardless of man’s word and the doctrine of demon’s that says Jesus’ followers will not be here for tribulation, and that they won’t have to endure to the end, we must remember and hold fast to Jesus’ warnings to His followers. He warned His followers that they would have to endure much tribulation, especially during the latter days. Jesus also promised them that those who endure to the end will be saved.

So, be encouraged. Although many leaders of westernized Christianity hinder the followers of Jesus from taking full possession of His Kingdom of Righteousness, and all He died for them to have, just as many of the Jewish leaders in Israel hinder Jewish followers of Messiah from taking possession of their promised land, we know that the Lord Jesus, Messiah(Yeshua benDavid), is on the way and will soon establish His Kingdom in Righteousness. His Kingdom is great and He, the Lord Our Righteousness is GREAT!

Jeremiah 33:14-16, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel (followers of Messiah, see Matt.15:24) and to the house of Judah (Jews). In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith it shall be called, The Lord our righteousness.

After Yahshua/Jesus was crucified, Christians kept the Festivals of God until Rome's government established religion, Catholocism, forced believers to forsake them in exchange for Babylonian pagan holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Prophetic Festival of SUKKOT or Tabernacles
The Lord’s Festival of Sukkot/Tabernacles is prophetic and a preparation for what is coming at the end. This article provides direction for followers of Jesus/Yahshua to endure what is coming upon the earth and overcome until the end.

 
The Biblical Festivals listed in Leviticus chapter 23, of the old or first Covenant are also oracles or prophetic messages (considered rehersals), much like the lambs blood on the Hebrew’s door posts in Egypt causing the death angel to ‘passover’, was a rehersal for the Lamb of God, Yahshua, to shed his blood to deliver us from eternal death.

The final annual biblical Festival of the Lord, called Sukkot or Tabernacles (tents/temporary dwelling) is a 'rehersal' for a prophetic event that the remnant, those who follow Jesus (Yahshua), will go through in the near future.
 
Interestingly, the formal and official ceremonious act of canceling debt happened during Sukkot/Tabernacles, not before; Then Moses commanded them:
“At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Festival of Tabernacles...” (see Deuteronomy 31:10)
 
Sukkot/Tabernacles is also known as the “ingathering”, since it is a time the Lord gathers His followers. There were only 3 times per year that all of the men of the Lord were required to appear together before the Lord, and the Festival of Sukkot/Tabernacles was one of them. (see  Deuteronomy 16:16).

 Unknown to many, the weekly Sabbath is not the only Sabbath day of the Lord. Just like the weekly Sabbath, the first day of Sukkot/Tabernacles is a Sabbath day of rest, assembly and not seeking ones own pleasure, and also ends with an 8th day Sabbath.
 
Sukkot is also the only festival that Jesus/Yahshua requires of His followers and survivors among the nations during His temporary reign on earth, often called the one-thousand year reign or millennial reign,  (see Zachariah 14 and Revelation 20).
 

Zachariah 14:16-17,
"Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles (Sukkot). If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain.”
 

Like the Festival of Passover, Abba proclaimed that the Festival of Sukkot/Tabernacles was to be a lasting ordinance throughout all generations.

While keeping the Festival of Sukkot/Tabernacles, The Lord instructed the Israelites to
“Live in temporary shelters for seven days:  All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in TEMPORARY shelters when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.” (see  Leviticus 23:42-43)
 
Sukkot confirms the following end-of-age prophecy;
 
Hosea 12:9,
“I have been the Lord your God ever since you came out of Egypt; I will make you live in tents (tabernacle) AGAIN, as in the days of your appointed festivals."
 
This prophetic event of temporarily dwelling in tents will happen as the following Scripture confirms;
Mark 13:12-19,
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that this will not take place in WINTER, because those will be days of DISTRESS unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now—and never to be equaled again.”
 
Daniel 12:10-12,
“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that WAITS, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”
 
Why does Yahshua want His followers to wait the extra 45 days in the wilderness before returning to Jerusalem?
 
Ezekiel 38:19-23,
The Lord said, “For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, says the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.”
 
Meanwhile, the Lord wants us to
remember the precedent He set for His followers after they left Egypt and went into a time of temporary dwelling in the wilderness. This is how He provided for His children in the wilderness…

Bread – Exodus 16:15, And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they did not know what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.

Water – Exodus 17:6, The Lord instructed Moses, “…you shall smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel."

Clothing – Deuteronomy 29:5, The Lord says, “During the forty years that I led you through the wilderness, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet."

Miraculous Intervention – Nehemiah 9:11, And (The Lord) did divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their persecutors You threw into the depths, as a stone into the mighty waters.

And do not forget, Jesus/Yahshua also said the works He did, you who believe on Him will do…

Multiplied Food – Mark 6:39-44, Then Jesus directed them all to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. The number of men who had eaten was five thousand.

Water Into Wine – John 4:46, Jesus visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine.

All Healed – Luke 4:40, “…the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.”

Supernatural Feats – Matthew 14:25, Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

Remember Your Power to Do GREATER Works – John 14:12, Jesus said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that beleiveth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

The Lord has made provisions for His people who must flee to the wilderness. Go forth in faith and fear not you followers of Jesus/Yahshua. You are the blessed of the Lord!

Yes, the Mighty One of Israel will arrive for a temporary one-thousand-year reign and ingathering of His followers in Jerusalem. But for now, it’s time to prepare the followers of Jesus/Yahshua for the coming persecution so they will be equipped to endure to the END!

Acts 14:22, “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

In every situation, may you walk in the miraculous POWER of the Lord your Abba, you mighty overcomer!

AMERICANIZED CHRISTIANITY REJECTS TRUTH!
"Shame has covered our faces, For strangers have come into the sanctuaries of the Lord’s house." Jeremiah 51:51, Matt. 10:14

August, 2011 (revised)
Challenge For You
Are you willing to be obedient to share the truth at a time and place that may not be comfortable or easy?

Does your fellowship enjoy liberty? Are you free to share Gods word where you fellowship?

Truth Ministries and Connection Magazine challenges every follower of Jesus/Salvation to share God’s word in their churches as well as out of them.

Pick a chapter or teaching that Jesus/Salvation has placed on your heart and share it where you fellowship. If needed, you may select and copy any Truth articles featured on this page.

The Holy Bible gives liberty and instruction that EACH ONE should use the gift God gave them to minister it to one another,
(1Peter 4:7-10) by doing so you will lay up treasures in Heaven, where your reward will be great (Matthew 6:20).

We have been instructed to teach, admonish and exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today”,
(Colossians 3:15-16 & Hebrews 3:13).

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Unfortunately, the time has come when men will not endure sound doctrine.
We have found that many Americanized churches are guilty of lording over their congregations, which they have been instructed not to do, (Matthew 20:25-28).

Many are teaching unbiblical theologies based philosophy, opinion and man made tradition. These same ministers have even strictly prohibited Bible verses from being handed out to their members.

When followers of Jesus are not freely allowed to fellowship and edify one another as Scripture commands, then the entire congregation suffers?

If you love your congregation and fear Jesus, you must act now!


Many are being misled, disarmed and deceived to follow man and his opinions, rather than Jesus and His word. Many are being oppressed and robbed of the liberty Jesus/Salvation died for them to have. 

If you witnessed someone being raped, robbed, beaten, abused, extorted, etc…, would you just stand by and do nothing? That’s exactly what many so-called churches are guilty of. 

If you do decide to act on this challenge and hand out Bible Scriptures to your congregation, know that it very well may come with much rejection and persecution; however, be comforted, for ALL who desire to live godly, in Christ Jesus, will suffer persecution, (2Timothy 3:12). It is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully, (1Peter 2:19)

Remember, 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 (Ephesians 6:12).

Also do not fear for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2Timothy 1:7). There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear (1John 4:18). Be prayerful, loving, patient, long suffering and forbearing.

Our brothers and sisters need you to take a stand and act now. Go forth in the Liberty of the Holy Spirits leading. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty, (2 Corinthians 3:17).

However, you will learn that the liberty of the Holy Spirit is not always present in every church, but remember we have been instructed to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29).

Notes from the Wilderness: Move and Go Out?
My wife and I have left the USA, but should we have?
by Jonathan Israel

The following questions will be answered in this article;

'Is it right for a Christian to ever flee, leave, depart or go out of their nation of birth?'

'Why would anyone leave the rich and powerful USA?'

'How do I know if it's right for me to leave the US?'

'Am I sinning if I stay in the USA?'

Clearly, Scripture shows us several New Covenant examples of God's people fleeing their homeland of Israel. In fact, Jesus/Yahshua Himself fled Jerusalem and stayed in the region of Galilee when it was known the religious leaders sought to kill Him. He only returned to Jerusalem when it was time to willingly lay His life down. John 7:1

Joseph and Mary also fled Israel and lived in Africa with their child, when King Herod began killing all baby boys under the age of two. Additionally, Paul, writer of the majority of the New Testament fled many times from government and religious leaders who sought to kill Him. Matthew 2:13

In old Covenant Scriptures, we learn that Jacob, named Israel by the Lord, fled with his family to Egypt when there was a famine in the land. Is there a famine in your congregation? In fact, the Lord sent angels to lead Lot and his family out of his country due to the impending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Genesis 19:15

So, what does leaving the USA have to do with anything?

Scripture in Jeremiah 50 and 51 reveals end time's haughtiest and most proud nation called Daughter Babylon, a nation with the following DNA; hammer (military leader) of the earth, wealthiest nation of the world, contends against the Lord, influences nations of the world to accept and legislate all manner of evil (porn, abortion, homosexuality, etc), goes INSANE, destroyer of God's heritage, eventually crushes the Church (imprisonment and murder of Christians), and falls just before final one-world beast government introduces a mandatory 'mark' that every human being must have in order to be able to buy, sell, or trade. Revelation 14:8-11

Many are becoming convinced that the USA is the only nation in the past 2,000 years that even closely resembles the prophesied latter day DAUGHTER Babylon nation. Interesting to note: the original land of Babylon lies largely barren except for a nearby huge edifice, which is the USA's embassy in Iraq and it's called the 'Fortress of the Americas'.

So, not only does the USA possess the DNA of Daughter Babylon, they possess the ancient land that was once Babylon. (Side note: watch for all manner of human cloning to be legalized by the US government).

What else does the Lord prophecy about Daughter Babylon? What is MYSTERY Babylon?

Daughter Babylon is a political nation and will become filled with all manner of evil and become a demonic hang out. Mystery Babylon includes a false, mixed and mingled Christianity, which has been birthed in Daughter Babylon. She has no shame in uniting with pagan, idol worshiping religions such as catholocism, Islam, Mormonism and more. And she has no shame in embracing and validating evil and sin, so she winks at women's lib (women usurping biblically male roles), homosexuality, unbiblical divorce and anything else contrary to Scripture.

The Lord will punish Daughter Babylon with a mighty wind and waters will overflow her borders to cover the land (tsunamis). And the final one-world beast government will DEVOUR the Harlot church called Mystery Babylon. Revelation 17

What is the Lord's message to His followers caught up in Babylon the great's system?

Jeremiah 50:8, "Move, come out…"

Jeremiah 51:6, "Flee!"

Jeremiah 51:9, "Forsake her."

Jeremiah 51:45, "Go out!"

Revelation 18:4, 'Come out of her my people, why should you suffer in her punishments'.

Can't a believer stay and have guaranteed safety? After all, the Lord's people were in Egypt when the Lord poured out His plagues on Pharaoh and his nation.

The prophecy about Daughter Babylon is different from what occurred in Egypt and very specific. God's people are commanded to leave, flee, come out and go forth, as all found in her and even around Daughter Babylon will suffer the punishment, see Jeremiah 50:32.

Is a follower of Jesus/Yahshua sinning if they decided to stay in the USA?

It is not a sin to stay in the USA unless you stay after having been convicted and convinced by the Holy Spirit of the Lord to leave. But remember, when the Jews were told to leave Babylon around 400BC to return to Israel, reportedly only a remnant obeyed and the majority stayed only to suffer through Babylon's destruction.

In fact, when the Jews were invited to return to their land of Israel, beginning with the Balfour Declaration in 1917, only about 800,000 of Europe's surviving 3-million Jews were living in Israel in 1948. 6-million Jews were killed by Hitler's Germany.

Can you say REMNANT?

Scripture reveals there will be a remnant of believers who are in Daughter Babylon after her destruction. They (who survive imprisonment and death) are instructed to think upon Jerusalem when they leave. So, we see the mercy of the Lord extended to the remnant one more time. Scripture says they too are instructed to "go away" and consider Jerusalem. RUN!

The sanctuaries have been invaded by strangers. See Jeremiah 51:50-53

Interesting side note: Followers of the Lord are NOT instructed to consider returning to Abba's covenant land of Israel, the land He has chosen FOREVER as HIS resting place, until after the fall of Daughter Babylon. (see Psalm 132:11-18)

Meanwhile, seek the Lord, pray, read the Scriptures, and in all you do, do everything in 'Faith' giving thanks to Abba in the name of Jesus/Yahshua. Let those who have ears HEAR what the Spirit is saying.

For whatever is not of Faith is sin. Without FAITH it is impossible to please the Lord.

Sadly, your blind Americanized Christian watchmen now proclaim Donald Trump is the new savior for America's citizens sent by the Lord Himself to save the American way of life. You know, the American life where Bibles and prayers are outlawed in schools, babies are killed and their body parts sold, children are mandated to be vaccinated with unidentified substances, the Lord's marriage covenant is defiled by US Supreme Court law, you are coerced by presidential decree to allow men in the public bathrooms and showers with your wives and little girls, and porn is a daily television and internet staple. Neither Donald Trump nor any other politician will or can save you from the American way of life you are voting to save.

But you are not a citizen of the USA if Jesus/Yahshua is your God and Savior. You are a pilgrim, a sojourner and stranger in this world. You are to be an ambassador for Messiah/Christ. A citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven; that is the citizenship you should be prepping yourself and fellow believers for.

My wife and I have decided to vote with our lives and obey the Lord by His word and Holy Spirit by getting OUT of America and getting OUT of Americanized Christianity's whore house religion (see Rev. 17:5 & Rev/ 18:4)

Jeremiah 50:8, "REMOVE out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he goats before the flocks."

Hebrews 11:10, "For he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God."

What city are you prepping for?

Mormon Agenda Exposed
Author reveals Mitt Romney’s allegiance and bizarre Mormon prophecy to overthrow Government.
by Jonathan Israel

In a book titled Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters, Author Tricia Erickson exposes secrets that the Republican presidential candidate, as well as the Mormons, wish you didn’t know.

A former Mormon, Erickson grew up in a family encompassed by Mormonism. A family that included a Mormon Bishop for a father. Her book reveals her immersion deep within the mysterious world of Mormonism and boldly exposes some of it's closely guarded secrets.

Last October, Erickson was a featured guest on TruNews with Rick Wiles, where she spoke in specific detail regarding her Mormon indoctrination and experiences, including some very strange rituals practiced during secret ceremonies, which she claims Romney also participated in during his “Consecration of Mormon”.

One such ritual is for a Mormon to take their finger and bring it from one ear, across their neck to the other ear, creating a movement that symbolized cutting ones neck. It is an implied promise of killing oneself before ever revealing Mormon secrets.

It is well documented that the Mormon founder, Joseph Smith, was involved with a secret society, and Erickson believes that much of the Mormon’s secret cult rituals were birthed out of Smith’s membership in the Masons.

Mormon Prophet Rules

What many don’t know about the Mormon doctrine is that anything their prophet says in official capacity is considered official canon (doctrine).

Erickson asserts that Romney is obliged to submit to the Mormon prophet above all else, including U.S. laws. She also said that any disobedience or deviation from such prophetic instruction on Romney’s part would take away from his eternal blessings.

A Brief Intro to Mormonism 

Mormonism is a relatively new religion that began with the visions of one man, Joseph Smith, in New York during the 1820s. Today, the Mormons are mostly identified by calling themselves Church of the Latter Day Saints of Jesus Christ.

However, while they identify themselves as “Christians”, they follow a different Jesus, whom they claim is satan’s brother. This poses a problem for Bible believing Christians since scripture warns against following a different Jesus, or a different gospel.

Erickson says that although Mormons may refer to the Bible, they regard the Book of Mormon as their primary book, in spite of it having been corrected and/or changed over 3,900 times.

In the New Testament of the Bible, Paul sounded the warning against false religion, “I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches
a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:2-4)

As a young Mormon, Erickson was taught that God came to earth and physically had intercourse with Mary to impregnate her. This teaching; however, is in clear contrast to the Bible which says, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; His kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:31-35)

Another teaching of Mormonism that contradicts the Bible is their claim that Jackson County, Missouri is the Garden of Eden, and that their 'Jesus' will reign from there when He returns to earth. However, the Bible is clear about where Jesus Christ will reign from when He returns, “In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days. The moon will be dismayed, the sun ashamed; for the LORD Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders—with great glory.” (Isaiah 24:21-23)

Mormons also erroneously claim that they are the “only true and living church’, and that their founder is the only one used by God to restore the priesthood. According to Erickson, they teach that only Mormons are true believers.

Mormon Agenda Exposed

Erickson's book uncovers the Mormon's strong belief that the world government would be handed over to them; therefore, their goal is that they must bring the U.S. Government under the rule of the Mormon priesthood. Another name for the Mormon priesthood, she expounded, is the ‘Government of God’.

The third president of the Mormons, John Taylor, taught along these lines when he said that the Mormon priesthood is the "true power and authority".

Further confirmation of their little known political agenda comes from a quote by Mormon author and apostle, Bruce McConkie, who wrote that the Mormons would be the “chief element in the overthrow of the U.S. Government”.

Brigham Young also confirmed this prophecy when he revealed the Mormon agenda in the Journal of Discourses,
“no more or less than the complete overthrow of the nation (USA), and not only of this nation, but the nations of Europe".

Jeremiah 18:7&8,
If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned REPENTS of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.

Warning USA!
Watch now and see how your enemies will come against you. Because your leader stopped Israel from disarming and dismantling the Muslim Brotherhood terror group, Hamas, in Gaza, so shall you be unable to disarm or dismantle those who will soon terrorize you, your women and your children. (note: within weeks of this article publication, North Korea threatened to NUKE the USA)

The Muslim terrorists in the Palestinian neighborhoods of Israel have been able to rain some 1500 rockets on Israel's civilians, and now they celebrate that President Obama has stopped Israel from confronting and removing them.

Clearly President Obama remained silent as the Muslim Hamas terrorists bombed Israel's families day after day, yet only intervened when Israel surrounded Hamas. The U.S. Government is now complicit with murderous Muslims. Corruption has taken over the U.S., and men will rise up within your borders and raise a shout against you.

Unless you repent, as you have done so shall it be done to you says the Lord. (see Obadiah 1:15) And if your leader fulfills his plan to divide Israel, so too shall your land be divided, says the Lord.

Even now, President Obama finally confesses his alliance with the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Yes, the USA is now alligned with those guilty of spilling the blood of Jews and the blood of those who follow Yeshua (Jesus) in the Middle East and North Africa. Their blood is now on your hands too and you will pay unless you repent.

NOTE: My wife and I were living in Jerusalem, when for the first time in decades, rockets landed in Jerusalem. The Muslim terror against men, women and children on every street corner in Israel is very real. Connection Editor, Jonathan Israel

God’s TWO Covenant Peoples: Christians and Jews to Unite  
by Jonathan Israel

The Bible describes the TWO covenant people of the Lord in many ways; as TWO Sticks, TWO Olive Trees, TWO lampstands and TWO witnesses! After two millennia, the TWO covenant people of the Lord, Jews and Christians, are still divided peoples. However, a prophesied true spiritual union is coming.

According to Bible Scriptures listed further down in this article, the Jews will eventually repent when the blinding vail is removed from their minds and they finally behold (know) the Lord Jesus whom they have pierced. Meanwhile, followers of Jesus (“Yahshuah”) would do well to know and understand all of what they’ve been grafted into.

It’s important to note that in a great act of kindness, Jesus will show/reveal Himself mighty and faithful for all the world to see one more time, and He is using His covenant land, a backslidden nation and a half-baked people to do it.

Ezekiel 38:23, “And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”

So, just what do Christians and Jews have to do with each other?

Romans 15:27, “For if the Gentiles (grafted in through Jesus “Yahshuah”) have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.”

Ephesians 2:11-22, “Wherefore remember, that ye being IN TIME PAST GENTILES in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That AT THAT TIME you were without Christ, being aliens from the COMMONWEALTH of ISRAEL, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now IN Christ Jesus YOU who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made BOTH one, and hath broken down the middle WALL of PARTITION BETWEEN US; Having abolished in his flesh THE ENMITY, even the LAW of commandments CONTAINED IN ORDINANCES; for to make in Himself of TWO, ONE new man, so making peace; And that he might RECONCILE BOTH unto God in ONE BODY by the CROSS, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

“For through him (Jesus) WE BOTH HAVE ACCESS by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners (of Israel), but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together grows unto a holy temple in the Lord: In whom you also are built TOGETHER for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

The world named them Christians but Jesus calls them “sheep”.

2,000 years ago, Jesus told His Jewish brethren (House of Judah) that he had other sheep not of their fold, whom he would gather and bring in to be one with them (John 10:16). He identified those He would unite with His Jewish brethren as “lost sheep of the House of Israel” (Matthew 15:24). The only way one can truly identify these lost sheep of House of Israel today is by Jesus’ own words, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:…” John 10:27

Covenant people from both Jew and Gentile Houses to be gathered together by God!

Jeremiah 31:27-28,  “Behold, the days come, said the Lord, that I will sow the House of Israel (redeemed from Gentile nations) and the House of Judah (Jews) with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, says the Lord.”

Ezekiel 37:22, “I will make them ONE nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be TWO nations or be divided into TWO kingdoms.”

The end-time unity between God’s TWO covenant people, Christians and Jews, is happening and will happen in a major way when the Jews are eventually delivered from an end-of-the-age, major attack by many nearby enemy nations (Islamic) who will surround them. Prophecy in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 both reveal that at that time of such victory, when almost 84% of the enemy troops are killed, the House of Judah (Jews) will behold Jesus “Yahshuah” whom they have pierced and wholly repent with brokenness and tears. In fact, the Lord declares that the whole world will know Him at that time.

But first, prophecy reveals that the two houses, two sticks, two covenant people of God from among Jews and Gentiles to be united as one in Christ!

Ezekiel 37:15-23, The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, take a stick of wood and write on it, ‘Belonging to Judah (Jews) and the Israelites associated with him.’ Then take another stick of wood, and write on it, ‘Belonging to Joseph (that is, to Ephraim the House of Israel prophesied to become fullness among Gentile nations, see Genesis 48) and all the Israelites associated with him.’  Join them together into one stick so that they will become one in your hand. “When your people ask you, ‘Won’t you tell us what you mean by this?’ say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to take the stick of Joseph—which is in Ephraim’s hand—and of the Israelite tribes associated with him, and join it to Judah’s stick. I will make them into a single stick of wood, and they will become ONE in my hand.’

“Hold before their eyes the sticks you have written on and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the ISRAELITES (Judah and Joseph) out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them BACK into their own LAND. I will make them ONE nation IN THE LAND, on the MOUNTAINS of ISRAEL. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be TWO nations or be divided into TWO kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their SINFUL BACKSLIDING, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”

Yes, God Saves and Restores His Covenant People

Jeremiah 30:18-24, “This is what the Lord says: “‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s (named Israel who fathered leaders of Israel’s 12 tribes) tents and have compassion on his dwellings; the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the palace will stand in its proper place. From them will come songs of thanksgiving and the sound of rejoicing. I will add to their numbers, and they will not be decreased; I will bring them honor, and they will not be disdained. Their children will be as in days of old, and their community will be established before me; I will punish all who oppress them. Their leader will be one of their own; their ruler (Jesus/ Yahshuah) will arise from among them. I will bring him near and he will come close to me— for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?’ declares the Lord. “‘So you will be my people, and I will be your God.’”

“See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in WRATH, a driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand this.”

Are you an outcast from Americanized Christianity? Have you been driven from the Holy and everlasting covenanted land promised in to your forefathers? A prophetic millennial day of ingathering (Sukkot/Tabernacles) is coming to God’s holy mountain when the Lord gathers His dispersed ones BACK into the LAND of Israel as a show and a sign of His power and faithfulness.

Isaiah 11:9-13, They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the EARTH shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a ROOT of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his REST shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the SECOND TIME to recover the REMNANT of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the NATIONS, and shall assemble the OUTCASTS of Israel (followers of Jesus), and gather together the DISPERSED of Judah (Jews) from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim (also known as Joseph and House of Israel) shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

The following unity of God’s TWO covenant peoples happens when Babylon falls…

Jeremiah 50:4, “In those days, and in that time, says the Lord, the children of Israel (house of Israel) shall come, they and the children of Judah (Jews) TOGETHER, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their God.”

Jeremiah 23:6, “In his days Judah (Jews) shall be saved, and Israel (God’s covenant people gathered from Gentiles) shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.

YES! God is still faithful to His initial unending, unbreakable covenant and covenant people.

Jeremiah 33:13-24, “In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that tells them, says the Lord. Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the House of Israel and to the House of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute JUDGMENT and righteousness In The Land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she (the land) shall be called, The Lord our righteousness.

“…Moreover the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying, Consider thou NOT what this people have spoken, saying, The TWO families which the Lord has CHOSEN, he has even cast them off? Thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them.”

Jews see Jesus “Yahshuah” and repent! After GREAT victory over enemy nations, backslidden nation of Jews will soon see and know the Lord God, whom they have pierced.

Zechariah 12:6-10, “In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first (Jews return first), that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to DESTROY ALL THE NATIONS that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”

The end-of-the-age TWO witnesses, TWO chosen covenant people of the Lord are both described in a final powerful stand prophecy!

The following is a PROPHECY hidden in Revelation that reveals God’s TWO covenant people groups will be anointed at a certain time and appointed by God as His witnesses for a certain special final event. These TWO will FINISH their testimony with great power for three and one-half years before the beast rises from the Abyss to attack and kill them. These witnesses have been around for thousands of years and are also identified in Zechariah 4 (House of Israel and House of Judah).

Revelation 11:3-7, And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” They are “the two olive trees”…  -(both house of Israel and the House of Judah are called Olive Trees, Jeremiah 11:16.  And the Lord also refers to these TWO olive trees/TWO houses as TWO witnesses and TWO lampstands. YES! Bible Scripture identifies the church as a lampstand. Scripture also describes followers of Jesus as those who are GRAFTED into NATURAL olive tree, Romans 11:24)- …and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.” If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want. Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.

Revelation chapter 20 reveals what happens next after Jacobs trouble and the great falling away. Zachariah 14 provides another view of the same 1,000 year coming government reign of Jesus; the millennial government in Israel, after He destroys the final 10 governments of the beast and casts satan into a prison.

Zachariah 14:16&17, “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). And it shall be, that whosoever will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

GET READY!

Meanwhile, evening is upon us and Western Christianity should wisely prepare for extreme hatred, persecution and much tribulation. A night of darkness is coming!

Why do you think the devil hates the Jews and Israel with such passion that he strives to nullify, vilify, criminalize, penalize and destroy them? Why do you think the persecution of Christians is now at historic levels and rising exponentially? Get ready! The impending destruction of Damascus will signal the great falling away and the prophetic time of Jacob’s trouble (see Isaiah 17).
 
Yes, Jacob, whom God named ‘Israel’, is the father of all 12 tribes of Israel, not just the tribe of Judah (Jews). And since ALL followers of Jesus are grafted into Israel, they will also be affected during this time of Jacob’s trouble.

But the promise is that the Lord will save and deliver His people out of such great trouble (Jeremiah 30).

So, when will the Lord gather (Ephraim/Joseph/House of Israel), His followers from among Gentile nations, back into the land of Israel?

Hosea 11:9-10 , "I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I devastate Ephraim again For I am God, and not a man—
the Holy One among you. I will not come against their cities. They will follow the Lord: He will roar like a lion.
When He ROARS, His children will come trembling from the west."

Proverbs 20:2, A king’s WRATH is as the ROAR of a lion.

Jeremiah 25:30, “‘The Lord will roar from on high; He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land." (see Zachariah 14)

Colossians 3:1-2, "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth."

Americanized Christianity is a hijacked religious system that embraces the political system as the prime source of "hope and change"; looking to deceitful worldly leaders as deliverers. Their misplaced hope is causing them to trust in flesh, even their own as they prep to rise up in the flesh and fight in the flesh to save their satanically governed earthly kingdom. Meanwhile, they shake their fist at the one true deliverer, The MIGHTY ONE coming to destroy the kingdom they love. (Revelation 19:11-21)

US Civil WAR is Coming!
In light of current illegal US Federal governing without regard for US Constitutional Law, as well as Christian faith, Conservatives and Christians are prepping to resist oppressive and illegal US attempts to outlaw their allegiance to God and Bible Scriptures.

Do the following quotes reveal that the Obama Administration and the progressive democrats have put down Christian rights, freedoms and liberties to the point of prepping conservatives and Christians to civil disobedience?

Regarding the assault against God’s covenant of marriage and the Obama Administration’s use of the Supreme Court to illegally legislate defilement of marriage from the bench, Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family said, “If the court declares same-sex marriage to be on the same par as a civil right, that’s a bridge too far. We won’t obey. We’ll go to jail.”

In an interview with WND, one-time presidential contender and Reagan White House aide Pat Buchannan urged Christians to put the laws of God above the laws of man.

Buchannan said, “The hill to stand on and fight on is the God-given natural right and the constitutional principle that people of faith may choose not to associate with those whose actions are abhorrent and whose lifestyle is insulting and offensive to that faith.”

Buchanan added, “As the Romans demanded of the Christians, the LGBT fanatics want us to burn incense to their gods. The answer is no. If it comes to civil disobedience, so be it.”

Meanwhile, as the US Government attacks the Christian right to obey the Lord’s Biblical commands regarding marriage, the Obama Administration protects the rights of Muslims to have freedom on US soil to teach and study Islam’s political agenda of world domination and the murder of non-Muslims.

Franklin Graham recently warned Americans that Muslim “terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States." Graham encouraged US citizens to prep for the invasion and added, “The storm is coming!”

President Obama’s Muslim faith and his overwhelming and passionate desires to support men who sex with men, has set the stage in America to outlaw Christianity and dissenting conservative voices.

In February 2015, Senator Ted Cruz warned Americans the “next 20 months will be VERY DANGEROUS” because of the anger of President Obama. Cruz predicts America will soon see unprecedented "LAWLESSNESS".

As the Obama Administration increases preparations for martial law, many more voices are beginning to rise up in opposition to the current US Government’s escalating attacks against the Covenants of God and the Covenant people of God.

So, what is the Biblical direction for responding to the advance of evil doctrines, lies and corruption?

2 Corinthians 10:4-6, "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds, Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled."

All glory to The MIGHTY ONE!

WARNING!!! Beware of self proclaimed "watchmen" who will urge you to arms (against evil government) and then get gain selling you financial advice and preparation for fleshly and worldly survival. They are carnal, they are thieves and they are robbing your faith for filthy gain!

Follow Jesus, His word and His Holy Spirit. He is your strong tower and fortress; an ever present help in time of need. The same works He did, we will do. He turned water into wine and multiplied the fish and loaves. If he takes care to feed birds, He will feed you. Jesus is your defender, provider and way maker.

A "GREAT WAR"
is on the way!

What will happen prior to the great war?

Many events are taking place in the world that make it appear we are on the brink of World War III. But there are certain key events scheduled to take place before the nations are all joined in a latter day "Great War" as spoken of in the book of Daniel, chapter 10.

Bible Scriptures reveal the key conflicts and events that will occur prior to the latter day Great War. In this article I will attempt to highlight some of those major event markers.

The world now watches as the US dollar wanes and teeters in spite of the support of indefinite quantitative easing. That, coupled with faltering US International policy, is making the United States look very weak on the world stage, and the evidence is cropping up with greater frequency and on several fronts.

North Korea is now making regular threats of an imminent nuclear attack upon US soil. Russia's leader Putin is now hinting at the use of its nuclear power if the US involves itself in the Ukrainian civil issue, where many Ukrainians wish to be grafted back into their former union with Russia.

The unrelenting and ever rising Islamic terrorism in the Middle East is fueled by the ultimate goal of world dominance as Muslim teachings in the Quran dictate.

Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood advances its lethal agenda by using terror puppet groups like the Palestinian Hamas to rain missiles on innocent Israeli families. And their terror puppet Hezbollah subverts the Lebanese Government, so it can wage its planned destruction of Israel from the north.

In Syria, there are enough chemical weapons to change our lives horrifically, once those chemicals reach terrorist hands.

Interestingly, the US supports terror groups currently fighting to overthrow Assad's Syrian Government. This kind of insanity is not only evident on the world stage, but also to the people here in the US, who are watching their own society lose direction.

There is unprecedented lawlessness in the US Federal government; NDAA 2012, Executive Orders conflicting with the US Constitution, NSA spying, illegal IRS attacks against conservatives, and a slow but diabolical yielding of US sovereignty to the UN, all feeding the ubiquitous threat of impending collapse of these United States.

Meanwhile, as Iran plays patty-cake with the world, they're preparing a nuclear arsenal that will enable them to begin the world confusion that their religion teaches them must happen in order to usher in their false savior, Mahdi.

Once Iran's nuclear weapons reach the hands of their terrorist partners, it would not take them long to throw the entire world into its religiously planned 'chaos'.

No longer fearful of US might, nuclear military giant, China, believes it can be victorious in a battle with the West.

Most recently, China warned the U.S. to end its military surveillance flights near Chinese territory. Clearly, the US is no longer the deterrent it once was against a Chinese confiscation of the Philippine islands or a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

The latest reports regarding China's expanding military now include research of a supersonic submarine that can theoretically get from Shanghai to San Francisco in just 100 minutes. That's about 6,000 miles under water in much less than 2 hours.

The next World War now appears to be closer with every passing day. But what clues does Bible prophecy reveal regarding a latter days "great war"?

In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a GREAT WAR. Daniel 10:1

So, what does this "Great War" look like? The coming "great war" prophesied in Daniel will be a war that encapsulates the entire world like never before, but not in the way you are probably thinking.

Most are not aware of the biblical details of this coming great war or preceding events. Interestingly, Scripture warns of many wars and rumors of wars that will occur all the way up the end of age.

However, after all of these wars, when they begin to say "peace and safety", then sudden destruction will come upon them, (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

Then shall be "a time of trouble, such as never was. Essentially, it will be the worst time in the history of the world. (Daniel 12:1)

According to Revelation, a final, one world beast government will embrace a leader who will arise to power under the guise of "peace" and with lying wonders. At this time, the devil/satan, called the "dragon", will achieve his ultimate world dominance by giving his power and authority to this latter days united world government.

Interesting to note, the Bible says the whole world is already under the SWAY of the wicked one. (1 John 5:19)

Prophetically described as a seven-headed red dragon, the end of the age world government will have the tyrannical, barbaric and hedonistic DNA of all historical, one-world governments; the Babylonian government, the Medes and Persian government, the Greek government and the Roman Empire.

In addition, the final "beast" will be anointed by satan as a deceptive united world government that includes a one world religious system that deceives the people with lying wonders.

By "peace" many will be destroyed. And unless those days are shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the Lord's chosen, those days will be shortened. Daniel 8:25

Daniel and Revelation reveal that this end time "beast" government will devour (encompass) the entire earth before Jesus the Messiah returns for a Great War with satan, mankind's final united world government, and the one world false religious system.

Revelation 19:19-21, reveals the "great war" results; "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him (Jesus) that sat on the horse, and against his army.

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."

So, what other notable events must take place prior to the "great war" that Daniel was warned about, and the book of Revelation confirms?

According to Bible prophesy, as droughts and famines overtake the nations, Israel will receive rain and bumper crop harvests. Their fruit will go out to the whole world and the wealth of the nations will flow to Israel. God's covenant land will become the new marketplace of the world. Ezekiel 17:22-24

The Lord Reveals Himself to The World and The Jews

The Ezekiel 38 war happens as Islamic nations surround Israel. The Lord Jesus (Yeshua ha'Mashiach) will defeat Israel's enemies upon the mountains with fire and ice. Great hail stones and fiery meteors falling at the same time. It will be such an obvious miraculous victory that the entire world will then know Jesus. In fact, the House of Judah, the Jews, will also know the Lord Jesus, whom they have pierced. Zechariah 12:10

Another event that will take place before the "great war"; Daniel tells a message for the latter days that includes a great nation from the far west of the world that crosses the entire earth, without touching the ground, and subdues Persia.

In 1937, Persia changed its name to IRAN. The Iranians are Persians, not Arabs as some erroneously believe.

The latter day great nation from the west has one large great horn, signifying not just an ordinary leader, rather a great or powerful world leader. In fact, Bible Scripture says he is the first king of the far western latter day nation.

This same nation had earlier subdued the other part of the original Medes and Persian Empire, and will now subdue the mightier half. Read Daniel, chapters 7 & 8 for more clarity.

If the United States is that great latter day nation from the far west of the world spoken of in Daniel, then the world will see the USA morph into a nation that has it's new government with its first "king".

In fact, the US is currently operating with laws in place that are the antithesis of the Constitution and an emboldened president who declares he will act unilaterally, without Congressional approval as the law requires.

Essentially, our president has wittingly or unwittingly, currently established his new rule of the USA as a monarch.

Scripture declares that the latter day, first king of the far west government of the world, will send an air attack against Iran.

Again, if this interpretation is correct, this means the new United Kingdom of America will be successful in disarming Iran's nuclear power with air power and without interference from any other nation.

For this to happen soon, perhaps a back door deal will be made with Russia that includes allowing them to reabsorb Ukraine in exchange for allowing the US to subdue the Iranian nuclear threat.

Prophetically, this would mean the US completes its morphing process, subdues Iran's nuclear threat and then sees the US economy almost miraculously rebound. But only for a little while before being divided into 4 new nations; to the north, south, east and west.

Additionally, Syria's city of chemical weapons, Damascus will be destroyed. The Lord said that He will cause a fire "within" the walls of Damascus and it shall cease. Never to be inhabited again.

Damascus is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. When this city, (the 'house of Israel's' one time fortress 3,000 years ago), is destroyed, it will signal a coming time of trouble and loss for all of God's covenant people. Isaiah 17

Yes, the latter day war spoken of in Daniel, a "great war" manifests on earth when the Gospel of the Government, (Jesus' Government) is established as promised. (Matthew 10:7)

Jesus will arrive and throw the beast and false prophet in the lake of fire. At that time He will send satan into a prison for 1,000 years.

Then the Gospel of the Kingdom, The Government of Jesus, rules from Jerusalem for 1,000 years: the millennial reign.

Daniel 2:44, And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a government, which shall never be destroyed: and the government shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these governments, and it shall stand for ever.

YES! God's Government is at hand! (Matthew 10:7)

How will we know when the Lord, Jesus the Messiah arrives for the 1,000 year millennial government reign on earth as Revelation 20, and Zechariah 14, reveals?

According to Zechariah 14, the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem will be divided in two, north and south, when Jesus returns to overthrow the government of satan and establish His rule over all nations from Zion; Jerusalem, Israel.

At that time, the whole world will be shaken!

"Therefore I will teach them— this time I will teach them my POWER and MIGHT. Then they will know that my name is the Lord. Jeremiah 16:21

(Editor's note: There is much more Scripture to share for each prophetic event listed. May this article stir you to seek the Lord and to search Bible Scriptures for more complete truth. 1 Corinthians 13:12)

To This You Were Called: PREP NOW!
Rapidly advancing extreme persecution for those who love and obey the truth. Alert! Many will fall away.

What you are about to read is a revelation of events that true followers of Yeshua (Jesus) have been called to, and that which many have already tasted. The purpose of these intense and descriptive Scripture warnings is to equip you and strengthen you to endure and overcome that which is coming upon the earth.

Sadly, many believe in the disarming doctrines of demons and will be caught unprepared.

John 16:33 Jesus said,
"In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; forthat Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Matthew 24:4-13,
And Yeshua (Jesus) answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

John 15:19-21,
Yeshua (Jesus) said, “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.”

Revelation 2:10,
Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Acts 14:22,
…strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”

Revelation 1:9,
I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

Revelations 6:9-11,
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.

Revelation 12:17,
Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Revelation 14:12,
This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:12-13,
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

1 Peter 2:19-21,
“For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us,…”

THE Mark of the Lord! The Lord God’s Lawful Precedents and Words Reveal He Does Not Remove His People from the Earth, But Rather He Marks His Chosen People Before He Pours Out His Wrath on the Earth (the world flood, the plagues of Egypt, etc…)

Revelations 7:2-3 & 9-17,
Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

Ezekiel 9:4-7
…the LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain…”

Beware of the day when wicked leadership attempts to imitate the Lord and requires that you must be marked in order to buy, sell and trade.

Revelation 13:7-10
...it was given unto him (the Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Revelation 13:15-17,
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Daniel 12:6&7
...“How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?” Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

Daniel 12:11&12,
From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.

Matthew 24:21-22 & 29-31,
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

1 Corinthians 15:52
...at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised…

Editor@ ConnectionMagazine.org

Note: Study the 7 trumpet blasts in the book of Revelation, chapters 8-11, to see all the events that unfold on the earth before and at the final and last trump. Meanwhile, avoid the temptation to offensively war against corrupt and oppressive government. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, (Eph. 6:12), and our weapons are not carnal, (2 Corinthians 10:4). Vengeance belongs to the Lord. Prayerfully consider leaving the USA.

Revelation 20:1-6
And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

Open Letter to Russia's President Putin

Dear President Putin,

I have a very important question to ask of you Mr. President, but first I must say that it has not escaped the attention of a growing number of US citizens who believe in the Bible and who follow Jesus (Yahshua), that Russia is now leaning more pro-Christian than the United States.

Clearly, while prayer and the Bible are outlawed in US schools, it is not the case in Russia's schools. And as the US Government works to ban the Bible and the name of Jesus (Yahshua) in our military, it is refreshing to see that your government allows Russian troops to have Bibles and the freedom of faith in the Lord. Thank you.

Mr. President, it has also not escaped the attention of many in the West that you refuse to bow to the homosexual agenda that is destroying the US; assaulting God's holy covenant of marriage and His people. Additionally, your attempt to reject porn on the internet is refreshing at a time the USA is the purveyor of arguably as much as 90% of the world's porn.

Finally, while the USA has been discovered supporting Islamic militants in Syria, your actions that oppose Muslim militants and terrorists in Syria are commendable. Considering the deplorable and evil terrorist attacks against Syrian Christians, I loudly applaud your stand against Islamic terror in Syria.

However, the escalating terror of Bible believers and followers of Jesus (Yahshua) is not limited to your side of the globe, Mr. President. Sadly, the persecution of true Christians is advancing in the United States. While most can say, do and believe anything they want in the US, those who believe in the Bible and follow Jesus are under attack and such attacks are escalating and intensifying even to overwhelming fines and imprisonment.

My question for you Mr. President is this; in light of the advancing persecution of Christians in the United States, would you welcome Americans fleeing such persecution?

Thank you for your consideration; lives will depend on it.

TO OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: MUSLIM DOCTRINE IS EVIL

SPECIAL UPDATE
December 7, 2015

EXPOSED:
Muslim Doctrines
of Islam
and Quran

The POLITICAL beast called Islam is dedicated to world dominance, even if they have to start WWIII to bring it about.

Why are the Muslims committing GENOCIDE in the Middle East and North Africa against their Arab neighbors who believe in and follow Bible Scriptures? Why is the US Government silent about the Genocide of Christians in the Middle East? Why have the large majority of Muslims in the United States not condemned Islamic Jihad of terror and death? Why are Muslims living in the US beginning to rise up and KILL more Americans with each passing year? Why is the US Government more vocal about penalizing Americans who condemn Muslim terror than American Muslims studying JIHAD doctrines of murder and terror at local mosques on US soil?

What exactly does Islam teach Muslim followers? The following verses from the Quran expose the wicked and murderous theology being taught on U.S. soil.

[3.85] ...whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.

[5.51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

[4.89] They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

What does the Quran teach about other non-Muslims?

[4.56] (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned,...

[3.151] We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve,...

[9.123] O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness;...

Does Islam teach Muslim followers to WAR against non-Muslims?

[8.65] O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand.

[8.12] ...I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

[8.39] ...fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah;...

[9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

[9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them...

[33.61] Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.

Editor's Note: These Quran teachings have been posted because there has been great deception by the US Government, Hollywood and false Christian churches declaring that Islam is a religion of peace and that Muslims serve the same God as Christians and Jews.

For the record, Muslims serve the Babylonian moon god, Allah, which is further evidenced by their crecent moon symbol.

The true people of holy faith serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who will soon send Yahshua ha'Mashiach (Jesus) to deliver His true followers after much tribulation.

The United States and much of American Christianity has turned their backs on the authority of the word of the Lord and His laws published in the Holy Bible. Therefore, what is determined from enemies without and enemies within will be the Lord's measured judgments on an unrepentant people, in and out of the Church. Repent!

The U.S. Constitution was not set up to protect Muslim POLITICAL doctrines of Jihad and the murder of non-believers. However, as long as Muslim doctrines of terror, world dominance and the murder of non-Muslims are erroneously protected by the U.S. Government, all citizens should be watchful, prayerful and ready to protect and defend their homes and families against terror and violence.

Thankfully, at this time most Muslims do not practice the wicked doctrines of killing non-Muslims that many are being taught in their Qurans.

Meanwhile, the stated goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to have Islam subdue and rule the entire world. Currently, the United States is stupidly attempting to help fufill that goal in the Middle East and North Africa by replacing dictators with the Muslim Brotherhood and Syria's President Assad is their next target for removal.

Unfortunately, Muslim leaders may call Muslim followers to start Jihad on America at any time, which 50 Pakistani Islamic leaders have already threatened in 2011.

We are getting close!

Flee United States Before Martial Law! Time is Running Out
Is the U.S. a part of mystery Babylon from which you must flee? Please Note: This timely article is three years old and written before Jade Helm, prior to the Supreme Court illegally legislating gay marriage, and the intense fines and imprisonment of those who disagree with homosexual beliefs and their skewed marriage faith. And, written at the onset of the US foreign policy advancing the GENOCIDE of Arab Bible Believers beyond Iraq and throughout the Middle East.
Jeremiah 50 & 51


Well family, the writing is not only on the wall, it’s in the Bible; the United States will fail as the world marketplace and be brought down, (Isaiah 23 and Ezekiel 26 and 27).
PROPHECY: Ezekiel 17 ties it all together to reveal final MARKETPLACE of the world at time of the end.

In preparation of the collapse of the economy, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has ordered over 2-Billion bullets, many of which are meant to kill (hollow-point) and illegal in the theater of war. Please note that reportedly only 70-million bullets were used annually in the Iraq war.

Military troops are now training for urban warfare on the streets of U.S. cities, and drones are beginning to fly over our houses.

The U.S as you know it will no longer exist.

The impending collapse of the world marketplace will result in many changes, unbelievable changes and many troubles in the U.S. and the world. A run on the banks, rioting in the streets, and martial law will be imposed. A major disaster such as a 9.0 earthquake in a populated region is all it will take to bring down the house of cards.

We are living in a time the Bible calls “Beginning of Birth Pangs”. Wars, rumors of wars, diseases, earthquakes; and then shall they persecute you and hand you over to be killed. And you shall be hated by all nations because you keep the testimony of the blood of the Lamb, Yahshua, and do not deny His word. Only those among the believers who love not their lives unto the death will overcome.

How is the stage being set for the persecution of Bible believers to escalate in the U.S.?

On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed the NDAA 2012 bill, which includes new laws that are the antithesis of the Constitution. Obviously, when the President imposes these laws, which say he can arrest any U.S. Citizen for mere suspicion of being a “threat”, and imprison them indefinitely without a trial, the Constitution will essentially be stricken as null and void by this new form of government.

And just who does the U.S. Government deem to be a “threat”?

According to the Department of Homeland Security, in a document they released just two months after President Obama was inaugurated, they describe those Citizens they deem to be a “threat” to the U.S. Government. The document is titled Intelligence Analysis Assessment of Rightwing Extremism, and it lists Veterans, Bible believers, gun owners, border control advocates, right-to-life advocates and others with conservative ideology as “threats”.

Martial law has yet to be implemented in the U.S., and already the U.S. Government is ignoring the Constitution and arresting some for merely speaking out against what they believe to be Government corruption.

In Hitleresque fashion, former Marine, Brandon Raub, was recently arrested and placed in a mental ward for writing his opinion regarding corruption in government on his private Facebook page. The FBI cited the new NDAA 2012 law, which illegally nullifies the Constitutional rights of U.S. Citizens like Raub.

Interestingly enough, when signing NDAA 2012 into law, President Obama declared he would "not" use the very arrest powers contained therein. The very arrest powers he doggedly sought the legislative branch for.

Wake up, America!

Also alarming, some U.S. leaders are already declaring you are not wanted, not needed and not welcome if you agree with Bible Scripture regarding the God-ordained Covenant of marriage, which is exclusive to a male and female union and has been since inception and for millennia.

Yes, the current U.S. Government has now come out of the closet to spearhead the militant homosexual attack against Bible doctrines and those who believe and follow them.

If this is how they are following up the outlawing of the Bible and prayer in our schools; and if this is their next act after legalizing the murder of baby in mommy’s belly, what will they attempt when martial law is imposed?

Prepare your congregations and families now; unprecedented persecution in the U.S. has already begun and will escalate to levels never before seen in this nation.

In fact, the U.S Government has already revealed their true colors in places like Iraq, Libya and Egypt, where they've helped to remove dictators only to replace them with the Islamic political terror puppets, such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Clearly, the fruit of this U.S. foreign policy has been the escalation of terror, murder and genocide of Arabs who believe and follow the Bible.

Meanwhile, the U.S. remains silent, essentially winking at the Muslims who murder their Christian neighbors. Soon, the U.S. will bring their road show home; how will you respond then?

Should believers leave the U.S. before the beast rises higher and begins to devour them in extreme measure?

Is there a precedent in Scripture where people of faith have fled when faced with government persecution?
(see Matthew 10:23)

When the government sought to arrest and imprison Paul for declaring the Gospel, he fled. This is his personal testimony: “In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.” (2 Corinthians 11:32-33)

When King Herod issued a decree to have children killed, Mary and Joseph actually fled from the nation of Israel and took their child, Jesus (Yeshua), to Africa, where they dwelt in Egypt until the danger passed. (Matthew 2:13)

In fact, when Yeshua grew and became a man, He fled from Jerusalem for a season because the religious leaders sought to kill Him. He stayed in the Galilee region until it was time to lay down His life. (John 7)

How has the persecution of Bible believers recently manifested in the U.S.?

Consider that the Obama Administration has issued laws, which attack your faith if your organization refuses to take part in the medical law and requirement to issue birth control and/or abortive remedies such as the ‘morning after pill’.

In Arizona, a man was imprisoned for having Bible study meetings in his home, supposedly because he took up a collection. Meanwhile, it’s legal to have in-home football parties with a huge guest list and take up as many collections as you want for beer runs.

Recently, a pastor from Black Earth, Wisconsin, was imprisoned for teaching Bible Scripture regarding child discipline, supposedly because he espoused the use of a small wooden spoon for spankings. Meanwhile, the Islamic political beast freely continues to teach murderous doctrines to their followers on U.S. soil to kill all non-Muslims utilizing weapons of fire and swords. Why?

So, where are believers moving to as they flee the impending collapse of the U.S. Constitution and the mounting religious persecution of Bible believers?

There are English speaking nations, aside from Canada and the U.K., where you may consider going. Some are choosing to stay in close proximity to the U.S., by relocating to Belize and other Caribbean nations. Countries such as New Zealand and Australia provide options farther away, where it also helps that their economies are stronger than those in the Eurozone and that of the U.S..

While many may elect to return to nations of their family origin, such as Israel, it’s important to remember that last days persecution of believers is prophesied and will eventually encompass the entire globe before Messiah returns.

Keep in mind that the refuge you find when you leave the U.S., may just be temporary as you continue your pilgrim journey in this world, which shall soon pass away. You must seek the Lord in prayer and remember that the safest place to be is in the “Fortress”. He will direct your steps in faith.

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—from violent people you save me.” (2 Samuel 22:2), (Psalm 31:3), (Psalm 46:7)

Leaders Ignore God’s Word: Judgment Imminent
Women leaders confirm the Lord’s impending judgment?

By ignoring the word of God found in Bible Scriptures, more evidence of impending judgment has mounted against those who prefer their words above the Lord’s words, and their ways above the Lord’s ways. In fact, after reading this article, you will better understand that impending judgment is on the way, especially for leaders.

The Bible says that when the words we speak are contrary to God’s words, there will be manifested signs that will happen that precedes the judgment of those who reject His word and ways; especially among the leaders. Accordingly, we will soon see what those signs of impending judgment are.

Bible teachers and preachers will be judged with a stricter judgment. The Lord Himself declares that He will destroy the wicked shepherds and those who have chosen their words and ways and have forsaken His words and ways. Contrary to false teachings, those among God’s people will receive His judgment?

1 Peter 4:17,
For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

James 3:1,
Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

Psalm 119:118,
You (Lord) reject all those who stray from Your statutes, For their deceit is falsehood.

So, why are there so many believers speaking contrary words, and willingly ignoring God’s word? Why do shepherds reject the word of the Lord? Why do so many choose to love this world so much that they follow after this world’s gain and not the Holy Spirit?

At a recent Bible study I attended, the leader of the group said he had a better deal than what the Bible offers. He claimed that he and his wife were equal. When I pointed out Bible Scripture, which declares that the Lord ordained the man to be the head of his wife, just as Yahshua ha’Mashiach (Jesus) is the head of the church, the Bible teacher said, “I don’t care. My wife and I have a better deal”

Well, we can all convince ourselves that our ways are greater than the Lord’s ways; however, the Lord declares that His ways are much higher. So, really, it comes down to who you believe and who you trust. Sadly, many trust their words more than the Lord’s words revealed in Bible Scripture. They trust their ways more than the Lord’s ways. Their misplaced trust is leading them and their followers down a path of destruction. After all, if you choose to reject some of the Lord’s word today, what will stop you from rejecting more of His word tomorrow?

The United States, like the ancient House of Israel, is a prime example of what happens when you slowly and methodically depart from the Lord’s word and turn from His ways.

Well, I humbly and sheepishly went back to the same church to hear another Bible teacher give “his” teaching to those who were there seeking the Lord and His word. Not too long into the meeting, when someone asked about Bible Scriptures that prohibit a woman from teaching or ruling over a man, the ‘Bible teacher’ said, “You have to understand that the word is 2,000 years old. Women are smarter now.”

He basically substituted his word and human intellect for the word of the Lord; much like the militant homosexuals do in their war against the Bible and its adherents. Speaking of which, another church leader in the group that day stood up in support of accepting practicing homosexuals into the church as we would any legitimate followers of Yahshua. He actually made his erroneous stand after Scripture was presented instructing followers of Yahshua not to associate with someone who calls themselves a believer yet lives in sexually immoral sin. He obviously thought he had a better word and better way than the Lord.

1 Corinthians 5:11,
But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?  God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”

So, what does the Bible say about a women’s role? What instructions does the Bible give, in both old and new covenants, which reveal the Lord’s order for women among His Congregation? And why do these following Scriptures very often take a back seat to man’s opinions, ideas, philosophies and personal theologies?

You will be amazed at how many Bible leaders declare a better way of doing things than the Lord outlines in the following New Testament Bible Scripture. Maybe not.

1 Corinthians 11:3,
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man;…

1 Corinthians 11:8,
For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.

1 Timothy 2:11,
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

1 Corinthians 14:35,
And, if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

1 Timothy 2:12,
“I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;…”

Titus 2:3-5,
The aged women likewise,  …they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Clearly, the word of the Lord identifies His order for women, which many so-called Bible teachers and pastors reject. So, what does that mean for the church now?

According to God’s word, women having authority over men is direct evidence and a sign of judgment against those who are speaking and acting AGAINST the Lord. So, now the Lord will enter judgment with His people, especially the elders, who have disregarded His instructions, HIS order and His will.

Women having ruling authority over men is a harbinger that the Lord will enter judgment with those leaders who have malnourished, misled and used His people. It is a harbinger of judgment against all who have turned away from and have forsaken the word and ways of the Lord.

Isaiah 3:12-14,
The Lord said, “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.”  The Lord stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people. The Lord will enter into judgment with the elders of His people…

Isaiah 3:8-9, “…Because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.”

Isaiah 3:14,
The Lord will enter into judgment with the elders of His people and His princes: “For you have eaten up the vineyard; the plunder of the poor is in your houses.

Is impending judgment coming?

Have the words of the Lord been cast aside and replaced with the words of man? Do women rule where you live? Are children your oppressors?


Doctrinally Correct Leadership

If the spiritual authority inside the Lord’s convocation or meetings are not to be women, what does the Bible say about those in leadership?

1 Timothy 3:2, A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;

1 Timothy 3:12, Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

Proverbs 31:23, Her husband is known in the gates, When HE sits among the
elders of the land.

So, why doesn’t Americanized Christianity follow instructions contained in Bible Scriptures, which requires spiritual leaders and teachers of men to be men?

2 Timothy 4:3, For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

Titus 2:1, But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine:

End of Age FORTRESSES: Will You Be Safe?

Jerusalem’s Fortress to Survive Multi-Nation Attack

Isaiah 29:5-8,
“Suddenly, in an instant, the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire. Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel, that attack her and her fortress and besiege her, will be as it is with a dream, with a vision in the night— as when a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still; as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking, but awakens faint and thirsty still. So will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion (Jerusalem).”

Isaiah 43:14-16,
The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: “Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?” Those who walk righteously and speak what is right, who reject gain from extortion and keep their hands from accepting bribes, who stop their ears against plots of murder and shut their eyes against contemplating evil— they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. Their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them.

Palestinian Fortresses in Gaza (Hamas) Will Be Destroyed by Fire

Amos 1:6-8,
This is what the LORD says: “For three sins of Gaza, even for four, I will not relent. Because she took captive whole communities and sold them to Edom (Jordan), I will send fire on the walls of Gaza that will consume her fortresses. I will destroy the king of Ashdod and the one who holds the scepter in Ashkelon. I will turn my hand against Ekron, till the last of  the Philistines are dead,” says the Sovereign LORD.

Fortress of Hezbollah in Lebanon to be destroyed!

Isaiah 23:11,
“The LORD has stretched out his hand over the sea and made its kingdoms tremble. He has given an order concerning Phoenicia (Lebanon) that her fortresses be destroyed.”

Amos 1:9-10,
This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Tyre (Lebanon), even for four, I will not relent. Because she sold whole communities of captives to Edom (Jordan), disregarding a treaty of brotherhood, I will send fire on the walls of Tyre that will consume her fortresses.”

Jordan's Fortresses to be Consumed

Amos 1:13-15,
This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Ammon (Jordan), even for four, I will not relent. Because he ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead in order to extend his borders, I will set fire to the walls of Rabbah that will consume her fortresses amid war cries on the day of battle, amid violent winds on a stormy day. Her king will go into exile, he and his officials together,” says the LORD.

The Soon Coming Antichrist to Set Up Abomination

Daniel 11:31-39,
“His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. “Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.

The Antichrist "King" to Exalt Himself and Honor "God of Fortresses"

“The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.”

Sinners Among Covenant People to Diminish Under The Cruel King (Antichrist)

Hosea 8:8-14,
“Israel (followers of Yahshua) is swallowed up; now she is among the nations like something no one wants (they want the Land of Israel, just not the lost sheep of House of Israel). For they have gone up to Assyria like a wild donkey wandering alone. Ephraim has sold herself to lovers (what have you loved more than the Lord). Although they have sold themselves among the nations, I will now gather them together. They will begin to waste away under the oppression of the mighty king.

“Though Ephraim (fullness of Covenant people among Gentile nations) built many altars (churches) for sin offerings, these have become altars for sinning. I wrote for them the many things of my law, but they regarded them as something foreign. Though they offer sacrifices as gifts to me, and though they eat the meat, the LORD is not pleased with them. Now he will remember their wickedness and punish their sins: They will return to Egypt. Israel has forgotten their Maker and built palaces; Judah (Jews) has fortified many towns. But I will send fire on their cities that will consume their fortresses.”

The True and Everlasting FORTRESS for God’s Covenant People

Psalm 18:2,
“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

”Psalm 31:1-3, “In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.”

2 Samuel 22:2-3,
““The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent people you save me.”

Psalm 46:7-11, The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields  with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Psalm 59:9-10,
“You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely. God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me.

Psalm 59:16-17,
“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.”

Psalm 94:21-23,
“The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will DESTROY them.

Proverbs 14:26,
“Whoever fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge.”

Isaiah 17:12-14,
“Woe to the many nations that rage— they rage like the raging sea! Woe to the peoples who roar— they roar like the roaring of great waters! Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee far away, driven before the wind like chaff on the hills, like tumbleweed before a gale. In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us.”

The Lord Will Unite Christians and Jews as One Nation Under God

Zechariah 9:9-14,

The LORD Yahshua, Our Righteousness, Will Ap“Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king (Yahshua) comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken.“He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you. I will bend Judah (Jews) as I bend my bow and fill it with Ephraim (fullness of God’s Covenant people from among Gentile nations). I will rouse your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece (antichrist democracy promoting man's will and pleasure above God's), and make you like a warrior’s sword. pear

“Then the LORD will appear over them; his arrow will flash like lightning. The Sovereign LORD will sound the trumpet; he will march in the storms of the south, and the LORD Almighty will shield them.”

Jeremiah 16:19-21,
LORD, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress, to you the nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, “Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods, worthless idols that did them no good. Do people make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods!” “Therefore I will teach them— this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name is the LORD.”

Note: There's nothing wrong about being prepared for a national disaster; however, followers of Jesus (Yahshua) are not to store up TREASURES for the 'last days', but are to trust the Lord for their daily bread. The Lord wants to be your "Fortress". Pray that your flight be not on the Sabbath day, because on the day you will have to flee, you may not even have time to go back in to your house for a coat, much less a "bug out bag". It's time to become debt free. Divest in this world and store up your treasures in God's Kingdom. Remember, where your treasures are, there your heart will be. The time is coming when a piece of bread will buy a bag of gold. Remember, the promises of Psalm 91, belong to the true followers.

US Spying on Brazil's Economic Officials

On Saturday, July 4th, WikiLeaks reported US continued spying on Brazil less than a week after President Dilma Rousseff visited US to mend relations derailed by reports of earlier spying.

"The US targeted not only those closest to the President, but waged an economic espionage campaign against Brazil, spying on those responsible for managing Brazil’s economy,” WikiLeaks said.

Is Brazil next nation to default on international debt?

(On June 9th, Business Insider reported that Argentina is having a meltdown after a New York judge ordered 5.4 billion payment rather than the 1.7 billion payment they were expecting)

A 21-year-old prophecy by David Wilkerson predicted that a nation (Greece) owing Germany and Swiss, would default on it's international debt, possibly followed by Argentina or Brazil.

According to the Wilkerson prophecy, Mexico will also default and US banks would then call a six month bank holiday.

No More Spying on Friendly Nations

"President Obama and the U.S. government have declared, on several occasions, that they would no longer have acts of intrusion upon friendly countries,” Rousseff said.

WikiLeak's Saturday report follows just weeks after U.S. spying revelations in France.

Three Signs of America’s DEATH
by Jonathan Israel

The Lord God has a way of speaking truth to us through signs in the heavens as well as signs on the earth. Well, I recently saw three signs that spell the fall of America.

In front of the house where my wife and I are currently staying with her elderly parents, who require much help, there sat a USA yard sign that makes its way out of storage each year as the July 4th holiday approaches.

It was just a few days before the United States Supreme Court would illegally legislate to redefine God’s holy covenant of marriage, when my wife and I embarked on an evening walk in the warm summer air. As we made our way to the front yard, she made a comment completely out of character when she said, “The USA is falling.”

Before I could ask her to elaborate, she quickly clarified her statement by saying that the USA sign in the front yard is falling down. I looked over at the sign and saw that the USA sign was in fact bowed over and ready to fall.

A day or two later, closer to the Supreme Court’s expected redefinition of marriage, as my wife and I began another evening walk through the neighborhood, I casually looked over and saw that the USA sign had fallen flat on the ground.

“The USA has fallen,” I announced to my wife. Her first response upon seeing the new position of the sign was to chuckle. But I reminded her how it may be a prophetic sign worth consideration, especially with the impending US attack against God's holy covenant of marriage..

Time to Mourn the Death of America

On July 1st, just days after the Supreme Court redefined God's marriage covenant, my mother-in-law made an announcement, “The clip on the flag pole is broken and the flag has fallen,” she said.

She was speaking about the United States flag on the flag pole in the front yard that has flown there for at least a dozen years. When I went outside and looked to see the flag, it was at half-staff. As most know, an American flag at half staff is a sign of national mourning.

Well, considering the illegal and contrary executive orders Presidents Bush and Obama have set up, the illegal and demonic legislation from the Supreme Court, and the rise of lukewarm Americanized Christianity, this time it is the death of the United States that is being mourned.

Very dark days of mourning lie ahead!

November 2013
USA Falls and Morphs,
Fears Escalate


Everyday, more US citizens are being awakened to the unprecedented and alarming trouble that America is in. Confusion has enveloped the White House, and fear descends upon the American people. Many simply just want to know how to prepare for what is coming next.

Just what is going on with the United States of America? The US is faced with insurmountable debt, bank failures, bond failures, stock failures, diminished and lost retirement accounts, a devalued dollar on the world market, and nuclear threats from countries like North Korea, Iran and now China. Our cities are failing, states want to secede and the IRS is illegally attacking conservatives.

The USA is now being regularly bombarded by record-breaking tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, floods and storms. New reports warn of impending famines, deadly biological attacks and, according to scientists, meteors and solar flares are also on the way. These things now serve as the backdrop for a nation that is discovering what life looks like without God's law and order.

Meanwhile, the liberties and freedoms of American citizens are under attack by the federal government and will soon be eliminated. So, what can be done and how should we prepare??

Wake Up Call

Americans are beginning to realize that the 17-trillion dollar debt is just the tip of the iceberg and that doesn’t even take into account the government’s debt obligations via their various bond programs and other types of programs like Social Security that also need to be paid back to investors.

Depending on which expert report you believe, the real US government debt is gauged to be at least $70-trillion and as high as $220-trillion. At these levels, the amount isn’t as important as realizing that the income of the US can’t even pay the annual interest on such an insurmountable debt, much less afford current spending. Hyper-inflation may appear to be somewhat of a last ditch fix for the national debt, but will only spiral the economic giant into further dysfunction and failure.

The banks are now facing an exodus of savers. Banking giant, JP Morgan Chase Bank recently announced restrictions on international transfers and withdrawls; a sign that smaller banks will soon begin to fail. New laws are reportedly being set up beginning in January, which basically means you lose your bank savings if your bank makes investments that cause it to fail.

Americans are also awakening to the fact that their president disagrees with their Constitution, and has been setting up illegal Executive orders such as NDAA 2012, NDRP and others that are diametrically opposed to their Constitutional freedoms; to say nothing of their God-given rights. The stage is now set in America for the introduction of government-induced lawlessness that can only be imposed and maintained by martial law, which (by default) their new order of government is set up to be.

Alert and watchful citizens with an ounce of discernment understand that such orders are a bipartisan move by both Democrat and Republican parties, since concern for preservation of Government trumps their concern for preservation of life. Yours!

Obamacare is not really about healthcare as much as it is about the US tapping into the largest profitable business sector remaining in this dying nation. Meanwhile, the majority of Americans are now rejecting the new “health” plan as they are beginning to realize their health care costs will soar, and the promise of keeping their current medical provider was just a lie.

So, for the sake of growing federal revenue, Obamacare will raise health insurance rates, diminish the level of care, and will ultimately leave more Americans without health coverage than before the plan was implemented.

Even more sinister, Obamacare is also about the loss of privacy for all US citizens as it is mandatory to provide a plethora of personal info into one data bank. Eventually, it will include work history, earnings, medical history, criminal records, credit card reports, buying habits, religion, GPS tracking, gun ownership and so much more. After all, the Obamacare law requires that all must be implanted with a microchip before the end of this decade. People are rightfully concerned.

The Obamcare law also requires a “civilian” militia be establish to oversee the healthcare program. So, why in the world do they need armed personnel to implement Obamacare? This is merely another attempt to circumvent the US Constitution, and a ruse to confiscate guns. But at the end of the day, a government organized and established so-called “civilian” army or militia would no longer be civilian by true definition of the word.

Martial Law

So, when will martial law begin? When will our first king be ordained? What event will be identified as the catalyst to begin the implementation of one nation under martial law?

The US political system has fought against God’s law and order long before President Obama came into office, and they’re just beginning to get a glimpse of what that really looks like.

Americans have long been aware of the fact that their Congress no longer works for them and has not worked for sometime. Usurping Congressional authority, illegal judicial laws are often imposed from the bench (abortion, gay marriage, etc...) and thrust upon the lethargic and complacent Americans; laws that have morally and criminally defiled these once democratic United States.

Faced with detrimental impasse, does this mean that President Obama will be compelled to declare a state of emergency? Will we soon see the end of Congress?  Is this the end of the USA, as we’ve known it? Is the United States of America about to morph into the United Kingdom of America? Will the USA become the UKA?

The answer is “yes”. The US has already entered the morphing stage as we await the public announcement, formal ceremony and birth of a new form of government in this captured country.

Americans are now aware of their loss of Constitutional freedom to privacy, as illegal NSA spying on all their phone calls and e-mails has become known. They also see the Department of Homeland Security increasingly challenge them at airports and public venues. And now the DHS preps themselves with 2-billion bullets; many are hollow-point, which are so deadly that they're outlawed in the theater of war.

Meanwhile, Al-Qaida Muslim terror groups, which serves as our nation’s leaders' excuse for taking away our freedoms, are getting US financial support and military grade weapons to overthrow nations like Syria.

Sadly, the US Government has plans that reveal they are undoubtedly willing to kill millions of citizens who openly and actively reject and resist their new form of government, which is now being set up to supersede their God-given freedoms as well as their US Constitutional rights?

According to the report titled Intelligence Analysis Assessment of Rightwing Extremism produced by the DHS within 3-months of President Obama’s first inauguration, the US government now considers Veterans, border control advocates, gun owners, Bible believers, right to lifers and other conservative types as “threats” to national security.

Now, it makes more sense as to why the IRS illegally targeted Christian and Conservative groups recently.

Life without God’s law and order means it’s getting darker by the day for the USA.

Fear is bad!

Men's hearts will fail them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:26)

Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; For the LORD will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught. (Proverbs 3:25-26)

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah (Psalm 46:1-3)

Trust in the Lord and be bold. Yes, this world will soon roll up and burn up, but you who have repented of your sins and now follow Jesus, are promised a place in the Lord’s eternal Kingdom, New Jerusalem, as documented in Revelation 21.

Prepping is good!

It is clearly biblical to prep when the Lord reveals future problems. Noah was warned by the Lord of an impending massive worldwide flood and was instructed to build an ark in preparation.

While in Egypt, Joseph was warned by the Lord that a 7-year famine was on the way. Joseph responded by building national storehouses and filling them with collections of food.

In Jesus’ parable of 10 virgins, five were considered wise for storing up oil for their lamps. Clearly, the wise were prepped for the darkness of the hour coming upon the land. Obviously, the foolish virgins had lamps but strangely did not anticipate the darkness to come.

So, how can you be prepped?

Scripture declares that a wise man sees danger and hides. (Prov. 22:3).  If at all possible, make plans to leave the US before imprisonments and death befalls millions. Additionally, the Lord warns that He will pour out punishments and His true followers are invited to leave. (Revelation 18:4)

If you must stay in America, get out of congested areas and get debt free. Buy gold and silver. Have water and water filtration plans in place. Have at least a six-month food reserve but less than a year’s supply. When the government declares a national emergency, you have very little to no rights and they will most likely confiscate large food supplies and imprison you for hoarding.

Network with others and hide your resources well. Watch and pray! (Luke 21:36)

But above all, repent of your sins and accept God’s gift of forgiveness and eternal life through His Son Yahshua (Jesus). Jesus is your ultimate fortress, (Psalm 91:2).

Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32)

Persecution Preparation in the U.S., Time for MARK of God
Does your government consider Bible scripture and end-time prophecy to be extreme? Will bold witnesses of Jesus be imprisoned in the U.S.?

Prepared by Connection Magazine Editor, Jonathan Israel

Wake up, America! A whole lot is happening while you sleep. The Lord is preparing to pour out His wrath on a wicked and rebellious generation before He returns. We have entered the “days of sorrows” and persecution is on the way. Yes, even Christians in the United States must prepare for the tribulation of persecution that is coming to a city near you. The mechanisms for Christian persecution are definitely now in place in the U.S., but I will talk more about those details later on in this article.

First, I must warn you that the Lord has led me to scripture in a dream, which through His word reveals that He intends to remove His glory from the current world marketplace. It will fail! (Isaiah 23 and Ezekiel 26 and 27). Ezekiel 17 ties it all together and reveals Israel's rise as the world marketplace in the end.

The United States became defiantly proud after 911, and rather than repent for a myriad of sin, our leaders quoted Isaiah 9:10 and planted a cedar at ground zero. Well, this is the Lord's response to the stubbornness of the United States;

'"
Thus says the Lord GOD; I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:
In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth branches, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell. And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish:

'"I the LORD have spoken and will do it.'" (Ezekiel 17;22-24)

Additionally, The Lord will soon deal with the false teachers and false prophets who exploit His people with their lies, self-indulgence, sooth saying and greediness. Their idols of worldly success and earthly prosperity are soon to be toppled in the presence of the Most High God, Jesus our Lord.
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:1)

For you followers of Jesus, especially in the United States, that love truth too much to skirt it, hide from it or reject it, you need to be prepared for what is coming. It will cost you. Are you truly ready and willing to follow the Lord wherever He may lead you? Will you obey Him no matter the cost? If it were to cost you your freedom, would you still follow and obey Him? What if it meant you would be killed?

Persecution of the true followers of Jesus is already taking place all over the globe. Those who love the Lord in China are often arrested, imprisoned, tortured and killed for their allegiance to the Lord of Lords. And reportedly, over one-million Christians are suffering in North Korean prisons.

Currently, in the Middle East, our Arab brothers and sisters have been killed or driven from their homeland. Few brethren remain as their Muslim neighbors complete the genocide of those who serve and have served the King of Kings in Iraq.

Additionally, as the Muslim Brotherhood advances it’s Islamic political footprint, Egyptians are now being raped, burned out of their homes and churches, killed or driven from their land, because they serve The Son of the Most High God. I guess they didn’t get the “Rapture” memo from the church in the United States.

Any so-called pastor or minister who tells you that you don’t have to endure to the end is deceived at best, and an outright liar at worst. Anyone making the false claim that followers of Jesus will be raptured before they have to face tribulation is preaching a disarming doctrine of demons. Yes, we do have a promise to be resurrected; however, God’s words, the Bible declares that it is at the “last day” and at the “last trump”. 
(1 Corinthians 15:52, and John 6:39)

Meanwhile, we are to strengthen the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.” 
(Acts 14:22)

Yes, Jesus said, "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Can The Lord of Creation Pour Out His Wrath While His Followers Are on Earth?

In the court of law, there is something called ‘precedence’, which helps an attorney make his case, and a judge to render his decision. In the Bible there is precedence of our God pouring out wrath while His faithful were still in the land. Noah was here when God poured out His judgment for forty days and nights, which destroyed everyone in the entire world except for Noah and his family. Yes, The Lord was nice enough to prep Noah by warning him and giving him instruction for survival. But He didn’t have to remove him in order to pour out His judgment of wrath.

Our Great God, The Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, poured out his wrath on Pharaoh and Egypt; meanwhile, His followers, the Hebrew slaves were still in the land. The Lord provided divine favor and covering for His covenant people, while measuring out His judgment and wrath on their enemies. The Hebrews were marked, not removed.

Will Christians be on Earth when the Lord sends His wrath? Will the Lord remove His followers, or simply mark them?

“…The LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain.” (Ezekiel 9:4-7)

“Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, ‘Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.’”
(Revelations 7:2-3 & 9-17)

Will The Church in the land of the United States Suffer Tribulation?

There is a Department of Homeland Security document titled ‘Intelligence Analysis Assessment of Rightwing Extremism', which was produced two months after President Obama took office. This DHS document was sent to all police, FBI and homeland security personnel, and it lists Veterans, Bible believers, pro-life advocates and others with conservative ideology as a “threat” to national security.

This DHS document by itself is inciting but relatively harmless; however, in light of the new legislation that President Obama requested and signed into law, it is very alarming and eye-opening to say the least.

On December 31, 2011, (December 23rd according to Georgetown University) as most Americans were celebrating and carrying on with business as usual, the Bill of Rights was effectively killed as President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act 2012, (NDAA 2012).
 
The new NDAA 2012 law allows executive privilege for the President of the United States to arrest any (ANY) U.S. Citizen deemed a threat to national security, and imprison them indefinitely without a trial.This new law is wickedly corrupt and represents a very slippery slope for human rights in the U.S.. 

In light of the DHS document, the new NDAA 2012 law is extremely frightful as it telegraphs the future persecution and imprisonment of Christians in the United States, simply because it is solely a matter of the President’s personal intentions and interpretation of the law. That’s just how close it is before your obedience to the Bible and your testimony of Jesus can cost you your freedom and possibly your life. The mechanisms are in place; so, how do we move forward?

Do not panic. While it's true that President Obama requested and obtained the power to arrest citizens based upon suspicion, and imprison them indefinitely without trial, strangely, he has now said he won't use the power, “I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation.”

Although, let it be noted that the Obama Administration has consistently claimed the power to kill U.S. citizens without charge or trial in the war on terror.

Based on President Obama's statement, as well as insght from scriptures in the Book of Daniel, I do not believe he will attack Christianity as a whole. I believe it will be a future leader out of the land of the United States that will set out to destroy the true followers of Jesus. Sadly, it's laws like 'NDAA 2012' that will most likely help make it happen during this decade.

However limited, persecution is upon us now and will gradually increase, but I believe it will be targeted and most likely covert in the beginning. I also believe promises have been made to silence any U.S. Citizen who obediently, publicly and actively declares the words of the Lord that condemn certain coveted sin, as well as government protected wickedness in the land.

“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” (Revelation 2:10) 

Jesus warned us, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in different places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” (Matthew 24:7-10)

“Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.” (Mark13:12)

Yes, the true followers of Jesus (Yahshua) will still be here even after the "fifth seal" is opened!

“When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.”
(Revelation 6:9-11)

Will Christians Be Here When the Anti-Christ Appears on the Scene, or Already Gathered to the Lord?

The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4,
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That you not be soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (gathering to the Lord) 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.” 

“...It was given unto him (the Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”  (Revelation 13:7-10)

“...How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?” Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished. (Daniel 12:6&7) 

Jesus said
"...he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
(Matthew 24:13)

Editor's Note: The United States has laws in place that will undermine the U.S. Constitution. Expect a huge change; civil unrest and a major loss of freedoms is on the horizon. Pray and ask the Lord how you should prepare (see article about "End of Age Fortresses"). Be debt free and have up to six months of food and water that you rotate through.

Letting Go of Biblical Truth

IS THE HOMOSEXUAL MILITANT AGENDA HITLER-ESQUE?

Heterophobes will OUTLAW you, sue you and put you out of business for rejecting and disagreeing with that which ATTACKS and PERVERTS the Lord's Holy Covenant of marriage exclusive to a male and female.

How close we are to CRIMINALIZING those who believe and obey the Bible. How close we are to Criminalizing those who LOVE the Lord God with all their heart, mind and strength. WARNING! Beware of those in and outside of the so-called church who think perverted sex is God's idea of LOVE, and who think all who follow God's word should be OUTLAWED.

Pure, US Government-backed hypocrisy! Violating their government imposed "separation of church and state" by attempting to define marriage, is the least of the US Government's evil acts of complicity; to say nothing of the Supreme Court illegally legislating from the bench.

Meanwhile, how did Jesus confirm and define marriage!

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and the two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. Matthew 19:4-6

So, what does God's word in the Holy Bible say about men who have sex with men?

Leviticus 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." Leviticus 20:13, "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination." Romans 1:26-27, "For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due." 1Corinthians 6:9-10, "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God."

The hypocricy from some American Christians is that they will rightly refuse to provide services or products for homosexuals who defile the Lord's Holy covenant of marriage, but these same people will rent apartments to fornicators, drink with drunkards and be friends with adulterers.

All sin and hypocrisy will be judged! God is NOT a respecter of persons. Acts 10:34

Ephesians 5:11, "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."

Abound in These Things and Be Fruitful
A word of knowledge-

You’re in an uncomfortable place. You’ve been here before. Different scenarios at different times, but you’re no stranger to the uncomfortableness and the strong urge to run from the pain. But this time is different.

You know it’s time to die a death like never before; A deeper death to your fleshly desires that takes a dedication of faith and obedience to the Lord at a higher level of maturity. You’ve avoided it long enough.

You do not need to fear that the Lord has forsaken you, because you understand that he is inviting you to a spiritual maturity; a level of faith and obedience that brings greater victory over the flesh and over the world.

You’ve prayed to be fruitful and the time of your preparation is at hand. You are being prepared for a closer walk with the Lord and greater victories that will manifest in this age.

You are one of the trusted ones who will walk in the fullness of the power of The Lord that few will. You will do great exploits in His name and many will learn to fear, revere, respect and honor the Lord.

You are ready to deny self and obey in an instant. You’re learning to love not your life unto the death. You are surrendering to My will above your own in areas you have not.

Yours in not an earthly power of earthly origin, but a God-ordained, covenanted power shall you walk in.  As the Lord Jesus declared, you will do the same works. And greater works will you do.

Yes, now is the time of painful preparation.

Faith, goodness, the knowledge of the Lord, self-control, patience, brotherly kindness, and love; For if these things are yours and ABOUND, you will receive a rich welcome into the Kingdom of Jesus the Messiah, Lord and Savior.

I am strengthening you. I am helping you to overcome the flesh that you may walk in the newness of life, in the power of My Holy Spirit says the Lord. Be humble and repent, I am at the door. Let those who have ears to hear, hear.

(Read 2 Peter 1)

Muslims Murder,
Christians Die,
Obama Plays

The following quote is from Judge Jeanine Pirro, host of 'Justice' on Fox News, who recently based out President Obama for clearly enjoying himself as the Islamic murder of innocents escalates.

"When 21 of his people (Christians) were killed, beheaded, Egyptian President El Sisi had his military take to the air within 24 hours to bomb his enemy. And when Jordanian King Abdullah heard of the burning of his soldier, he raced back to Jordan to rally his forces, hang two terrorists and organize a military strike against ISIS.

"But you, Mr. President, what do you do? You hit the golf course within minutes of announcing the beheading of an American citizen. It must be good to be you."

Regarding President Obama's solution to offer jobs to all Muslims signed up for murderous Jihad, Judge Janine said, "Many of these jihadists - as we found out this week - are not in need of a job. Actually, they're pretty well-heeled. That's nothing new - we've known that since 9/11. And by the way - they don't need a job. They have a job. Their job is to kill us."

Editor's note: Meanwhile, as President Obama plays golf, the Americanized Christian church must be somewhere out there playing too... for now. When President Obama and his Muslim friends bring their road show home, it will be 'game over'.

Hey Mr. President, here's a message for you and your Muslim religion, "The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion." Psalm 11:5

RUSSIA HINDERS NEW WORLD ORDER
Is Russia undermining the new world order plans that Barack Obama and other recent US Presidents have been striving for?

As Russia aids those in the Ukraine who are fighting their American backed government for the purpose of reuniting with Russia, cries are coming from Washington, making the new claim that Russia is undermining the US view of the new world order they've been preaching.

Just what does the US view of world order look like?

The US Government has gone into every arena of public life, including schools, government buildings and the military, undermining the lives and liberty of Bible believers. They have also stepped up recent attacks against God's Holy Covenant of marriage by supporting men who sex with men; have been unfaithful to allies, such as Israel and Germany; are helping Muslims rise to greater power in the Middle East, which has resulted in more Christians being killed by Muslims every day to Obama's silent approval; and those in Washington are now accusing Russia of undermining the US view of world order.

So, how does Russia's world order differ from that of the USA? Russia allows the Holy Bible and prayer in their schools and military, does not allow homosexuality to influence their children or to corrupt God's Holy Marriage Covenant, and does NOT declare Islam to be good after Muslims behead individuals or groups of Christians. I guess Russia is guilty of NOT submitting to the USA's world order. God Bless Russia!

It seems America believes that the new world order can only happen with Russia out of the way. Please pray for the salvation of Russia and her citizens. And please pray for yourselves, America. Your Government also considers most of you to be their enemy too, and they are on course to attack your freedom like never before.

In fact, it appears Washington is now declaring there is a threat greater than ISIS and the escalating Islamic murder and terror of late. According to CNN, a new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security identifies "right wing extremists" as potentially more dangerous than Muslim terrorists.

This Saul Alinsky tactic basically means anyone not in agreement with Barack Obama or the progressive democrat agenda is a threat. A 2009 report by the DHS indentified “right-wing extremists” as border control advocates, gun owners, abortion opponents (Bible believers) and proponents of the US Constitution. It also singled out returning war veterans as particular threats. I strongly urge you to repent, confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and prayerfully consider leaving the US while you can.

The Threat of Death

On 2/18/15, Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, and one-time Republican presidential hopeful said, "I do not believe that the president loves America -- He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

The comments were made in light of President Obama's brazen verbal attacks against Christianity, but his unwillingness to condemn the Islamic teachings of murder and terror. Although most of the responses to Mr. Guiuliani's comments were supportive, he said he had received death threats in wake of the comments.


Speaking about President Obama's response to the Muslim murder of Christians and Jews, Guiuliani asked, “How could you hold a press conference about Ferguson and not hold a press conference when Christians and Jews were slaughtered?”

How sad it is that there are Americans more upset about Mr. Giuliani's comments, than they are about the modern day Islamic doctrines teaching Muslims to murder and terrorize.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS FUTURE NOT OURS
Blog Editor, Jonathan Israel

IN SEPTEMBER, 2012, PRESIDENT OBAMA WICKEDLY DECLARED AT THE UNITED NATIONS, THAT THE FUTURE DOES NOT BELONG TO (US) IF WE SLANDER MUHAMMAD!! WELL, I HATE MUHAMMAD'S EVIL DOCTRINES OF MURDER AND TERROR, AS MOST OF YOU DO. I EVEN HATE THE MUSLIM'S VIOLENT TREATMENT OF THEIR WOMEN. SO, ACCORDING TO PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE FUTURE DOES NOT BELONG TO US WHO OPENLY REJECT MUHAMMAD AS AN EVIL TEACHER OF JIHAD AND TERROR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IMPLIES THAT REJECTING MUHAMMED AS AN EVIL LEADER OF MURDER AND TERROR, IS EQUAL TO BURNING A CHRISTIAN CHURCH. WAKE UP AMERICA! THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ATTACKS THOSE WHO RIGHTEOUSLY AND BOLDLY CONDEMNS ISLAM, AND THEY EMBRACE THOSE WHO TEACH MUHAMMAD'S MURDEROUS ISLAMIC TERROR DOCTRINES ON US SOIL.

LOVE A MUSLIM AND OUTLAW ISLAM!

MESSAGES FROM AMERICA'S FIRST THREE PRESIDENTS

"The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier..." America's first president also said, "You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ."
GEORGE WASHINGTON, General and Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army; President of the Constitutional Convention; FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; “FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY”

"The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity."
JOHN ADAMS, signer of the Declaration of Independence; Judge; Diplomat; one of the two signers of The Bill of Rights; SECOND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

"The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses."
THOMAS JEFFERSON, signer of the Declaration of Independence; Governor of Virginia; Secratary of State; THIRD PRESIDENT of THE UNITED STATES

MILITARY COUP for USA?

In spite of his recent Hitleresque purge of top US military leaders, did President Obama inadvertently set the stage for his own demise? Has his Muslim upbringing and promotion of Islam gone too far? At a recent prayer breakfast, President Obama shamed Christians for daring to condemn Muslim doctrines of murder.

Attempting to silence Christian critics of Islamic terror, the President ignorantly cited the catholic Inquisition, where the Roman Government’s catholic church tortured and murdered Christians and others for not submitting to catholocism. President Obama also implied the catholic Crusaders' wars against Muslims almost 1,000 years ago, was further proof that Christians should remain silent in the face of escalating and advancing Muslim terror and murder.

For all who are opposed to the following Islamic doctrines taught to Muslims on US soil, President Obama has boldly documented his allegiance, "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." (Audacity of Hope, page 261.)

From the Muslim book, Qur'an

[3.85] ...whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers. [4.56] (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned,... [3.151] We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve,...

[8.12] ...I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
[8.39] ...fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah;...

[33.61] Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.

DESTROYING HOLY MATRIMONY!!
To the chagrin of the US government, Marriage is a God-ordained Covenant exclusive to a male and female union since inception and for millennia. The US Government's relatively new liberal laws allowing homosexuals to perform deviant sexual practices without penalty of man's laws is one thing; however, the US Government's latest viscous attack to destroy the sanctity of the HOLY vow of marriage between a man and woman is another. Wake up, America! Repent while you can. The USA's ATTACK against God's Covenant is extremely evil and violates their separation of church and state. >

Biblical Role of Women INSIDE the Church

Has the Americanized church been turned INSIDE-OUT?

What does Bible Scripture say about a women’s role INSIDE the church? What instructions does the Bible give, in both old and new covenants that reveal the Lord’s order for women INSIDE His Congregation during church meetings?

Why do the following Bible Scriptures take a back seat to man’s opinions, ideas, philosophies and personal theologies within rebellious and error-filled Americanized Christianity?

1 Corinthians 14:34-37, "Let your women keep silence IN the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also says the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak IN THE CHURCH. What? Came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the COMMANDMENTS of the Lord."

1 Timothy 2:11, "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection."

1 Timothy 2:12, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; …”

Titus 2:3-5, "The aged women likewise, …they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. "

Although women are Biblically forbidden to TEACH men or assume a leadership position INSIDE the true church of Jesus Christ, a woman may evangelize the lost OUTSIDE and also (use their gift of helps) help church leaders with their work.

The Following Bible Scriptures define male roles INSIDE the Church

1 Timothy 5:1, "Rebuke not an elder, but intreat HIM as a father; and the younger men as brethren;"

1 Timothy 3:2. "A bishop then must be blameless, the HUSBAND of one wife,"

1 Timothy 3:12, "Let the deacons be the HUSBANDS of one wife,"

Titus 1:5&6, "For this cause left I thee in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are wanting (lacking), and ordain ELDERS in every city, as I had appointed thee: If any be blameless, the HUSBAND of one wife,…"

Clearly, the word of the Lord identifies His order for men and women INSIDE His Church, which many so-called Bible teachers and pastors reject. So, what does this mean for the rebellious church that forsakes God's word and commands?

Isaiah 3:12-14, The Lord said, “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” The Lord stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people. The Lord will enter into judgment with the elders of His people…

2 Thessalonians 3:6 "But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you WITHDRAW from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us."

Women as spiritual teachers of men in the congregation, or having any elder leadership assignment over men, is a harbinger that the Lord will enter judgment with those church groups and leaders who have malnourished, misled and used His people. It’s a harbinger of judgment against all who have turned away from and have forsaken the word and ways of the Lord.

Americanized Christianity has been turned inside-out due to it's lawlessness by FORSAKING God's words and ways. Wake up! It's time to distinguish between those INSIDE and OUTSIDE of the Lord's true Church, especially at a time the true Church of Jesus Christ has been and is being driven into the wilderness.

1 Corinthians 5:12-13, "What business is it of mine to judge those OUTSIDE the church? Are you not to judge those INSIDE? God will judge those OUTSIDE. Expel the wicked person from among you.”

LIARS and LAWLESS REJECT GOD'S COMMANDMENTS

1 John 2:4, “He that says, I know Him, and keeps NOT His COMMANDMENTS, is a LIAR, and the truth is not in him.”

1 John 3:4, “Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is LAWLESSNESS.”

2 Thessalonians 2:3, “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day (when Jesus returns) will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of LAWLESSNESS is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.”
Grace Abusers Live LAWLESS

Jude 1:4, “…ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,…”

To the Grace Abusing Hypocrite, God’s Word says…

Romans 2:24, “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”
Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

2 Peter 3:17, “…since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the LAWLESS and fall from your secure position.”
PRAYER: Forgive us for our carnality and sins, Abba. Deliver us from every evil way; in the name of Yeshua we pray. May you deliver us from every false way and empower us by your Holy Spirit; all of us who belong to You, purchased by the blood of Jesus. Cause us to bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit that pleases you. May we now seek ALL that is pleasing to you according to Your Spirit and Your Word. 1 John 3:22, “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his COMMANDMENTS, and do those things that are PLEASING in his sight.” Romans 8:26, “…the Spirit helps us in our weakness.”

GOD HATESTHESE PEOPLE

The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth VIOLENCE his soul hateth. Psalm 11:5

Yes, the USA sanctions the violent tearing apart of baby, limb from limb, in mommy's womb. The rogue police decide it's easier to turn their back on elected leaders, as in New York, rather than condemn the illegal police violence and killing we all know is happening and escalating in our falling country.

God HATES these who love violence. Pray. Do not be violent. But declare the truth, even when it means that corrupt government will treat you VIOLENTLY. Do not allow yourself to be provoked to violence. Vengeance belongs to the Lord and He will repay their evil and violent ways. Romans 12:19

OBAMACARE FINES INCREASE!

Is your faith in ObamaCare? Or is your faith in the Lord? Yes, Jesus is the Great Physician who heals us. Ultimately, our health and strength comes from the Lord and not the diminishing US health care system or men who "practice" medicine.

Matthew 9:35 says, "Jesus went about ...HEALING every sickness and every disease among the people." James 5:15&16 says, "And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be HEALED." 1 Corinthians 12:9 declares, "To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of HEALING by the same Spirit;"

Since many in Congress are opposed ObamaCare, it's very hypocritical for the US Government to thrust President Obama's medical deception upon the people. It would also be a violation of the US imposed separation of Church and State to force people of faith who trust Jesus for Healing, to now purchase and have faith in ObamaCare's questionable medical services and practices.

Godly Holy-days
or Pagan holi-days?

Beware of doctrines of demons disguised as finely wrapped gifts, tasty treats or just a “nice time” with the family.

In the 4th commandment given by the hand of the Lord, He outlined the holy-days ordained as an everlasting SIGN between Him and all generations of His followers. Meanwhile, in the following Bible Scripture, the Lord warns His true followers not to learn the ways of the pagan and heathen nations.

This is what the Lord says: “Do not learn the ways of the nations…” Jeremiah 10:1-2

When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Deuteronomy 18:9

Regarding traditions of the followers of Jesus (Yeshua), Is it really all about man invented holi-days featuring make believe characters that come to fulfill and satisfy the earthly desires and worldly cravings of our children?

In the name of “tradition” is this seemingly harmless doctrine of demons the instruction you really want to TEACH your children?

Jesus said, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!”

Bible Scriptures, 2 Thessalonians 2:15, confirm true followers of Jesus are to turn back to the traditions received through the word and doctrines of the Lord as taught in the Scriptures.

HOW CAN FOLLOWERS OF JESUS HAVE TRUE UNITY?
Bible Scripture instructs us, "I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought." (1 Corinthians 1:10). So, how can we all agree in the things we say and be perfectly united? Only when we agree with and do the word of the Lord found in Bible Scriptures will we then have true agreement and unity. Sadly, in an attempt to create unity, many ignorant leaders ignore Bible Scriptures and preach ideas, opinions and philosophy such as the following carnal/worldly doctrine leading to FALSE unity; "Let's just agree to disagree."

Meanwhile, whose words are you following? (Matt. 7:24-26, Luke 8:21, James 1:22, 2 Thess. 3:14, 1 Tim. 1:3, 2 Tim.4:3)

Does the Lord still reveal future prophetic information to His followers?

Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7

And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to SHOW TO HIS SERVANTS THE THINGS WHICH SHORTLY MUST BE DONE.” Revelation 22:6

The LORD did say, "Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: BEFORE THEY SPRING FORTH I TELL YOU OF THEM." Isaiah 42:9

Jesus said, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have MADE KNOWN UNTO YOU.” John 15:15

JESUS said, "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you THINGS TO COME." John 16:13

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below,… Acts 2:17-19

TRUE or FALSE CHRISTIANITY?

What sign is a mark of your faith?

Amen! We're saved by the blood of Jesus! Keeping the Lord's Sabbath is NOT a source of righteousness, but it is an EVERLASTING SIGN that the Lord commanded to confirm His SOURCE of salvation for His Covenant people for ALL generations .

Exodus 31:13 and Exodus 20:12, both confirm that the Lord's Sabbath is a SIGN that only the Lord is our SANCTIFIER. Are you someone who claims sanctification ONLY comes from the Lord?

Exodus 20:20 reveals that the Lord's Sabbath is a SIGN only for the people who belong to the Lord, that HE ALONE IS The LORD Your GOD. Do you belong to Him?

Because Jesus died to save us from our disobedience to His commandments, can we now disregard His commands because we are forgiven for our sins we REPENTED of?

The Commandments of the Lord includes His 4th Command, which is a SIGN for His true followers to keep the LORD'S Sabbaths holy. So, if we LOVE the Lord with ALL our heart, mind and strength, WILL we love what He loves, hate what He hates and seek to PLEASE HIM?

The Catholics killed and tortured Sabbath honoring Christians for centuries after Jesus died. True Christians suffered and died at catholic hands for honoring the Lord's Command to keep the Sabbath holy, for refusing to work on the Sabbath (7th day). Note: 7th day is Saturday

(see http://www. whochanged thesabbath.com for details)

Now the Babylonian catholic whore church, and her spawned prostitute protestant daughters, justify baby worship on the Babylonian Sun god's birthday, December 25, their weekly worship on Babylonian Sun-god day (Sunday), and they blindly celebrate the day of the Babylonian goddess of fertility (Babylonian Queen Ester ISHTAR) and her egg laying rabbit.

FACT! It's painfully obvious that the same Christians who work so hard to justify embracing their Babylonian tainted worship customs, thrust upon them for centuries by catholicism, are those who fight so hard to REJECT God's 4th Commandment, to say nothing of the Lord's Festivals (holidays).

So, who does satan attack?

Revelation 12:17 tells us "And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who KEEP the COMMANDMENTS of God AND have the testimony of JESUS CHRIST."

Revelation 14:12 has a message for TRUE followers, "Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who KEEP the COMMANDMENTS of God AND the faith of JESUS."

Church, we are saved by grace for obedience to the Lord's commands, NOT lawlessness!

Babylonian customs or the Lord's Commands? What marks you?

And the book of Revelation says, "And the heaven departed as a SCROLL when it is ROLLED together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places."
(Revelation 6:14)

ARE YOU PLEASING YOURSELF?
Bible Scripture teaches, "We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and NOT to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased NOT himself;…" (see Romans 15:1-3) FALSE TEACHERS LOVE PLEASURE MORE THAN GOD! 2 Peter 2:13-15 says, "They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, ENTICING unstable souls. They have a heart trained in COVETOUS practices, and are accursed children."

The REAL TRUTH ABOUT "JUDGING"!
Are the followers of God supposed to "judge". What does the Bible really say about who should and who shouldn't judge. 1Corinthians 6:2-3 asks, "Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?" Jesus said, …"JUDGE with righteous judgment." (John 7:24) To the Un-Just, Un-Wise Hypocrite, the Holy Bible Says… Do NOT judge. see Matthew 7:1-5 and Romans 2:13

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31

Wrath or Mercy?

“Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Joel 2:12-13

John 6:63-64
Jesus said, "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him.

1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

FULLERTON, CALIFORNIA POLICE KILL HOMELESS MAN AS HE BEGGED FOR HIS LIFE -

Yesterday, two of the primary police officers who killed Kelly Thomas, a homeless man with mental problems, were found not guilty in court. This is a precedent that now provides immunity for police who maliciously kill someone during a routine or non-routine stop.

America is falling fast as the Federal Government prepares local police for civil war and/or martial law largely due to the projected collapse of the US economy, by equipping them with armored vehicles and military training.

There will not be a link to the video on this site; however, you may watch the police arresting and corruptly taking the life of Kelly at http:// www.prisonplanet.com /police-monitoring- social- media- for- death-threats- over- kelly- thomas-verdict.html

WAKE UP, AMERICA!

How long will the land mourn,
And the herbs of every field wither?
The beasts and birds are consumed,
For the wickedness of those who dwell there, Because they said, “He will not see our final end.”(Jeremiah 12:4)
