BE ON THE WINNING SIDE: JESUS AND THE SAINTS WIN

Bible prophecy reminds us that Jesus, the King of Kings, will have the last word in the end, because only He is “the ruler of the kings of the earthRevelation 1:5

And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever,Daniel 2:44

And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; his kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.’” Daniel 7:27

“Now, therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” Psalms 2:10-12

The final battle of Armageddon when Jesus and the resurrected Saints come against the Antichrist and his army is a one-sided affair as the following Scripture shows

And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.Revelation 19:14-16

Note Jesus gives authority to the resurrected Saints to rule with Him on this earth with a “rod of iron” during His Millennial reign. Jesus’ Millennial reign (people being born and people still dying) is a transition period before the cosmos is destroyed. What follows is a second resurrection, the White Throne judgement, and a new heaven and earth where only the righteous dwell.

The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’Revelation 2:26-29

They came to life and reigned with Christ for 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 is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.Revelation 20:4-5

Despite the fact that Satan is bound for most of the thousand years, Jesus and the Saints still need to rule with a rod of iron which shows that many will still rebel against God’s commandments and rule. We are also told that when Satan is released he is able to raise an army “their number is like the sand of the sea”.

And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him so that he might not deceive the nations any longer until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be released for a little while.Revelation 20:2-3

Whose side will you be on during the coming tribulation will you submit to the Antichrist and take the “mark of the beast” in order to survive or will you trust God no matter what comes your way?

FACEBOOK REMOVES VIDEO ON JEWISH TIES TO JERUSALEM

“It is sad that simple historical truths are being labeled as ‘hate speech,” Eytan Meir, Im Tirtzu’s (Building the Zionist Dream) International Relations Coordinator, told United with Israel.

Facebook removed a video posted by the Im Tirtzu Zionist movement that traces the history of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from biblical times to the present, noting that the concept of a Palestinian nation only came about in recent years.

 We are living in a time where facts and truth are being sacrificed in the name of political correctness and wokeness. This is especially true regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict, and that is why videos like this are so critical.

“We will continue creating content that tells the truth about the conflict, regardless of what Facebook thinks,” Eytan Meir said. It clearly demonstrates that the Prince of this World, Satan controls Facebook.

Meir added that an English version of the video is in the works, which he hopes will be published “in the upcoming weeks.”

Im Tirzu chairman Matan Peleg said: “We invite the public to watch a video describing the rich and extensive history of the Jewish people and to judge for themselves whether the decision to remove the video was justified.”

The Bible reveals that this small nation that was miraculously reborn as a nation in 1948 exactly as prophesied will be centre stage of world events right up to the time Jesus returns to rescue it from total annihilation. The Antichrist and his false prophet send out demonic spirits to assemble kings from all over the world for the battle at that place in Hebrew called Armageddon.

And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty... And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.Revelation 16:13-16

THE BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM: ISRAEL IS AT WAR

One of the most known “end times” Biblical prophecies is the Battle of Armageddon. It is the final battle when Jesus liberates Israel from the Antichrist forces on the plains of Megiddo. Armageddon is a Hebrew word for the valley called Megiddo (valley of Megiddo).

The following article from the Jewish News Syndicate is evidence that we are fast approaching the time when the Antichrist will appear on the scene. At first, he will appear to be Israel’s saviour with a peace plan.

I am not suggesting that this will happen in the next year or two because the Bible’s timeline for the “end times” reveals in Daniel 8.

1. The Goat (Turkey, Sunni) and the Ram (Iran, Shia) battle for dominance has not yet played out.

2. Turkey’s attempt to re-establish a revived Ottoman Empire will be dashed when it is broken up into four Kingdoms out of which the Antichrist (Little Horn) emerges.

Then the goat (Turkey) became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
Out of one of them came a little horn,
which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.Daniel 8:9-10

The Jezreel Valley in Israel also known as the Valley of Megiddo

Israel is in a war that is difficult to identify, as there is no shelling by tanks and cannons or bombing by planes.

By Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, Jewish News Syndicate

“When senior Israeli government ministers meet with the chairman of the Palestinian Authority; when the defense minister promotes a long line of gestures and grants to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas; when the American administration revives the notion of a ​​two-state solution and partition of the land; when U.S. President Joe Biden presses for the opening of a consulate for the PA in the heart of Jerusalem as an expression of his aspiration to see it as the capital of Palestine; when more and more Israeli ministers speak out against settlement and in favor of the partition of the land; we find ourselves in the midst of a silent, gradual and dangerous war.

Jerusalem day at the Western Wall

That is why the Sovereignty Movement and some 20 other organizations that love the land of Israel and Jerusalem, have initiated protests to call on Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his government to stand resolutely and preserve the unity of Jerusalem.

For 12 years, the impression was that it was no longer necessary to stage demonstrations and vigils, but, apparently, we were wrong.

We must take to the streets and, in the name of devotion to and love of Jerusalem, to battle in its defense, rouse the people and spur the leaders to action. We will not enable Israeli submission to American dictates.”

As well as being surrounded by hostile Muslim nations intent on Israel’s destruction they are pressured by the UN and now America whom Israel considers one of its only allies.

Many of the orthodox Jews believe the 1800 prophecies in their Torah that reveal that their Messiah, will return to rescue Israel and He will rule and reign the nations from a completely restored Jerusalem. Sadly, they do not know it is Jesus whom they rejected 2000 odd years ago now. Pray for Israel.

JESUS RETURN TO EARTH

This is an another revealing video from Nelson Walters. I met Nelson many years ago now in the USA at an End Times Conference and for over a year he was a member of the Board for a ministry that I started several years ago. It was premature but its time is fast approaching. Sadly, I have jumped the gun on a number of occasions with projects God has given me particularly when I owned and managed Christian Press and Care & Share Products. Timing is so important and we need to get it right. Much like Abraham and Sarah, I have birthed Ishmaels not Isaacs. God is good and He has always given me a second chance as He will you if you mess things up. Back to Nelson, he is always willing to listen and work with others that believe they have been called to alert the church to Jesus Second Coming and all that God has revealed will unfold at that time. You will note in his videos he will always tell you when what he is saying is conjecture or his opinion and not supported by Biblical evidence.

SUMMARY

Will Jesus set foot on earth before the Battle of Armageddon? It is not what is commonly taught. So, what does God’s Word say? Perhaps because what we currently call the Second Coming is not a single event! Could Jesus arrive an entire year earlier to take His church to heaven but also to take part in pouring out His wrath upon an unrepentant world. Is this what Scripture calls the acceptable year of the Lord? In this video Nelson examine four proofs that categorically prove Jesus is on earth prior to mounting his White Horse and leaving Heaven to fight Armageddon. What is the meaning of Jesus’ robe dipped in blood and how is it related to this concept? How are the Days of Noah involved? And does Satan know about Armageddon prior to Jesus riding the white horse? Does the Bible teach a second Exodus? Nelson does a great job of taking us to the relevant Scriptures that provide the answers we need.

CHINA IN THE END TIMES

Chinese President Xi Jinping called Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday to voice support for the creation of a Palestine state.

China says it will host Palestinian Peace Talks

Xi’s call likely signals that China is siding with the Palestinians against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s desire to extend Israeli sovereignty over areas of Judea and Samaria as laid out in the Trump administration’s Mideast plan.

The timing of the call raises questions as Chinese companies recently lost multi million-dollar bids for infrastructure projects in Israel, partly due to the U.S. warning Israel against giving China too much influence. Seeing Israel choose the U.S. in the struggle between the superpowers, China may be seeking to gain leverage with Israel’s enemies.

Last week, China signed a $400 billion accord with Iran in both the civilian and military sectors.

Openly defying U.S. sanctions on Tehran, China committed to build dozens of infrastructure projects throughout Iran, including ports and train lines, and integrate the Islamic Republic into its 5G telecommunications network.

The two countries will also tighten their military ties, boosting intelligence cooperation, sharing weapons development and increasing joint naval exercises. In exchange, Iran will sell China oil at below-cost prices for the next 25 years.

‘Wall Street firms have been examining the implications of the reversal of a decades-long effort to form a more symbiotic relationship between the world’s two largest economies. One consistent view is the world will be far more polarized, with economies and companies gravitating toward either a Chinese or an American orbit.’ The events in the Middle East outlined above indicate this view is playing out right now. it looks as though we’re headed for a split world. One that will revolve around two independent spheres of power and influence. Each with its own winners and losers. The world order really is shifting. Both the US and China are setting the stage for a huge showdown. One that will force much of the world to pick a side.

The Bible reveals that the final battle in the last year before Jesus returns to liberate Israel and begin His Millennial reign on earth involves the kings from the east. The alignment we are seeing taking place now with China and the Muslim nations against Israel is a necessary step in the fulfillment of this prophecy.

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.” Revelation 16:12-14The Day of the Lord
