BIBLICAL PROPHECY BEING FULFILLED IN OUR TIME

The following two paragraphs have been extracted from an article entitled “AFGHANISTAN: A name that will live in infamy” by Dr. Richard Land, BA (Princeton, magna cum laude); D.Phil. (Oxford); Th.M (New Orleans Seminary). Dr. Land served as President of Southern Evangelical Seminary from July 2013 until July 2021.

“The great American “bugout” from Afghanistan — a betrayal revealing a level of incompetence from our American military, security and political establishment is both breathtaking and incomprehensible. This collection of buffoons and pretenders has just presided over a national humiliation that will reverberate around the globe with truly legally dangerous consequences extending for the entire life span of virtually all currently living Americans.

This fully preventable foreign policy debacle is a humanitarian and security disaster which has generated potentially horrendous conflicts across the globe that will now be very difficult to contain or prevent.”

America’s flight from Afghanistan will embolden jihadists around the world -The Economist August 28th 2021

Radical Muslim extremists will be emboldened by the “level of incompetence of our American military, security and political establishment” to quote Dr Land.

Exactly as prophesied, in the “end times” all of the nations surrounding Israel (Muslim nations) are intent on its destruction which will eventually lead to the “Time of Jacobs Trouble” when Israel is invaded by the Antichrist (Gog).

Numbers 24:7 and Ezekiel 38-39 prove that Gog is the Antichrist and that he will be defeated by Jesus

Of all people that God would give an “end times” prophecy to, it is hard to conceive Balaam, or is it, God often uses the most unlikely people for His purposes.

I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near: a star (Jesus) shall come out of Jacob, and a sceptre (King) shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of Sheth. Edom shall be dispossessed; Seir also, his enemies, shall be dispossessed. Israel is doing valiantly. And one from Jacob shall exercise dominion and destroy the survivors of cities!” Numbers 24:17-19

How lovely are your tents, O Jacob, your encampments, O Israel! Water shall flow from his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters; His king (Jesus) shall be higher than Gog (Agag) and His kingdom shall be exalted… He shall eat up the nations, His adversaries, and shall break their bones in pieces.Numbers 24:5, 7, 8

It is only in recent years with the aid of teachers such as Travis Snow and Nelson Walters that I have come to realise how much of Ezekiel is “end times” prophecy.

Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and say to Gog, Thus says the Lord God: On that day when my people Israel are dwelling securely, will you not know it? You will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army. You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.Ezekiel 38:14-16

The following four paragraphs are taken from Travis Snow’s book ,The Passover King: Exploring the Prophetic Connection Between Passover, the End Times, and the Return of Jesus. I can highly recommend it to you.

Once we grasp that Gog is the Antichrist, and that he first made his appearance in Numbers 24, it is hard to argue that Gog’s invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 could take place at any other time than the beginning point of the Great Tribulation (halfway through Daniel’s 70th week). We know from Daniel 9:27 that the Antichrist turns on Israel halfway through Daniel’s 70th week, which consequently leads to a period of unparalleled distress and suffering in Israel (cf. Dan. 12:7-13).

So when we compare Scripture to Scripture, it can be argued that Gog’s invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 is a more detailed description of the events described in Daniel 9:27 and 12:7-12, which are also tied to the period of time Jeremiah called the Time of Jacob’s Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7; cf. Zechariah 12:3;14:1-2).

In simple terms, Gog’s invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 is what happens after the Antichrist breaks his covenant with Israel, which then starts the timeclock of Israel’s final 3 ½ years of suffering and exile before the return of Jesus. Since Gog is the Antichrist, and since it appears from Daniel 9:27 that the Antichrist will establish a false peace treaty with Israel during the first half of the Tribulation, it is not possible that his invasion of Israel could occur before the midpoint of the 70th week.

Iran Proxy and Sanctions Map Dec 2020

From previous posts you will know that I believe we are already seeing the “end times” prophecies in Daniel 8 unfolding in our time with Shia Iran (the Ram) with its proxies, Hezbollah, Hamas, Houthis and al-Ashtar Brigades “charging westward and northward and southward”

I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” Daniel 8:4

Next major prophesied event will be Sunni Turkey (the Goat) of Daniel 8 will subjugate Shia Iran (the Ram) and attempt to re-establish its Ottoman Empire.

ISRAEL IS CENTRAL IN END TIMES PROPHECIES

When speaking of Israel’s time of suffering in the “latter days” (Deuteronomy 31:29) Moses specifically mentioned in Deut. 32:20 and 32:25 that God would hide His face from Israel during this time, and give them over to the power of the sword:

Then He said, “I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end shall be; for they are a perverse generation, sons in whom is no faithfulness”. Deuteronomy 32:20

It is certainly no coincidence that this is exactly what Ezekiel says will take place as a result of Gog’s invasion of Israel.

I hid My face from them; so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and all of them fell by the sword” Ezekiel 39:23

Ezekiel 38:10-13 and 39:10 also mention that as a result of Gog’s invasion, Israel will be “plundered” by her enemies,

The hostility against this small nation that God established for His purposes is escalating at an incredible pace as the following events indicate. Biblical “end times” prophecies are being fulfilled in our day. It is difficult to understand why so much of the church can’t see it.

Freshly inaugurated Iranian president Dr. Ebrahim Raisi, [infamously known as the Butcher of Tehran] hosted the leaders of various terror groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad during his first day in office Friday, assuring Iran’s continued support for groups seeking the destruction of Israel.

Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, a guest of honour at the event, was singled out for praise by Raisi. According to state-owned Iranian news agency Fars, Raisi reassured Haniyeh that Iran is committed to supporting the terror group.

Hassan Nasrallah, secretary-general of Hezbollah, on Saturday warned that the Israeli army would be destroyed in any future war with the Lebanon-based terrorist organization, Hezbollah’s Al-Manar news agency reported.

“Palestine has been and always will be the number one issue of the Muslim world,” Raisi said. “We’ve never had and will never have any doubt about this policy.”

It must be remembered what Haid Ghaemi, the executive director of the New-York based Centre for Human Rights in Iran, told AFP News Agency that “Raisi is a pillar of a system that jails, tortures, and kills people for daring to criticize state policies,” .

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, after his 12 years at the helm has been replaced by a precarious coalition that lacks coherence and leadership. Whereas Netanyahu was at all times focused on the dangers of a nuclear Iran, the new government appears hardly concerned about this threat. 

President Trump toasted the Iran nuke deal, and in the absence of those accords, Iran has been madly spinning centrifuges and taking steps toward becoming a nuclear nation. As well, the Biden administration appears to be influenced by the anti-Israel & pro-Iran philosophy of the former Obama regime
When we couple this with the exit of all U.S. and allied NATO forces from Afghanistan, as well as the withdrawal of American forces in the entire Mediterranean area, things are looking rather precarious for the nation of Israel.
In the news this week, Israeli Jets Struck Inside Syria for the second time this week
Things are all of a sudden looking very bad for the Jewish state, and if they were attacked right now, they could not expect any help from their powerful Western allies. Seldom has their position looked so lonely.
All of this and we have not even talked about the unprecedented global rise of anti-Semitism, which is breaking world records each year. It is incredible how quickly everything has changed!

Remember the saying; “Nature abhors a vacuum?” Well, when we connect all of the above factors, a massive hiatus has suddenly appeared in the Middle East that makes the State of Israel extremely vulnerable. Sadly, it is only going to get worse exactly as the Bible prophesies.

END OF DAYS MESSAGE FROM JONATHAN CAHN

This is more a podcast than a video but in it Jonathan reveals how the Bible consistently, right from the early books of Moses, outlines the events that will unfold in the last days, the end of days before Jesus returns to rule and reign on this earth during the Millennium.. He then shows us how the godless events, the vulgar culture, the great falling away in the church, but also a great falling away from the natural to the unnatural, that are unfolding in our time are prophesied in God’s Word. Jesus has also revealed to Christians that He will purify His church before He comes again.

Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:9-14

TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES ARE SO RAPID IT’S DISRUPTING SOCIETIES

The American middle class is shrinking… and not in a good way. Millions of folks are sinking below the poverty line. As this massive socioeconomic shift continues, a shrinking sliver of the population controls an ever-larger portion of the national wealth.

Consider that in 1980, the richest 1% of Americans owned about 30% of all household wealth in the country. At the same time, the bottom 90% owned about 24% of all household wealth.

By 2012, the share of all household financial wealth owned by the top 1% had skyrocketed to more than 60%… and the share owned by the bottom 90% had plummeted below 10%.

Now the top 1% now own more wealth than the bottom 92%, and the 50 wealthiest Americans own more wealth than the bottom half of American society – 165 million people. While millions of Americans have lost their jobs and incomes during the pandemic, over the past year 650 billionaires have seen their wealth increase by $1.3 trillion.

Socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders pins the blame for income inequality on his usual suspect – capitalism: “the most powerful and well-financed entities in the country, including Wall Street, the health insurance industry, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, and the military-industrial complex.” However, the truth is very different.

THE TECHNOCHASM – This term from Eric Fry a highly successful money manager refers to the role that technology plays in our increasingly wealth-divided society.

Year after year – and especially during the last pandemic year – dynamic, upstart companies topple established businesses that seem fairly sturdy and dominant in their markets.

In many cases, these dying businesses employ tens of thousands of workers. But the seeming strength of these businesses often hides their underlying weakness.

Companies that fail to adapt die a slow but certain death. Consider the following:

  • In less than seven years, Uber Technologies Inc. (UBER) demolished the “old” taxi industry while making its founders billionaires.
  • Around 2007, Netflix Inc. (NFLX) began transitioning into America’s No. 1 movie and television “streaming” service. This innovation crushed traditional brick-and-mortar rental companies like Blockbuster.
  • Since early 2009, shares of Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) soared more than 5,000%. Meanwhile, dozens of old-school brick-and-mortar retailers shuffled slowly into bankruptcy.
  • A study of the newspaper industry conducted by the University of North Carolina reported that 1,810 newspapers ceased publication from 2004 to 2018 thanks, in great part, due to vast amounts of cheap – or free – online content.

The destruction of much of the old-school economy wasn’t a concerted effort from Sanders’ usual suspects. It was due to the fact that technology advances so quickly that, thanks to a phenomenon known as the Law of Accelerating Returns, the rate at which these huge disruptions occur keeps speeding up.

Those disruptions will make the wealth gap grow wider every year. Exponential progress – the kind taking place in research labs and tech businesses right now – radically accelerates the pace of change we see in the world… and radically accelerates the wealth gap.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM?

Sen. Sanders’ solution to this problem is predictable.

We must raise the minimum wage from the current starvation wage of $7.25 an hour to a living wage of at least $15 an hour…

We need to make it easier, not harder, for workers to join unions…

We need to create millions of good-paying jobs rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure…

We need to do what virtually every other major country does by guaranteeing healthcare to all people as a human right…

We need to make the wealthiest people and most profitable corporations in America start paying their fair share of taxes.

Some of the senator’s prescriptions might be helpful, at least short term. But they would cost trillions of dollars and the government is already in trillions of dollars of debt that will eventually make the US dollar worthless. I wish I could tell you this situation will be resolved soon. But it won’t. The destruction of industries is accelerating as all technology is changing exponentially and its adoption is also growing exponentially. Consider robotics and its impact on employment, e.g. Amazon warehouses without employees. Companies can now operate with far fewer employees than ever before and this is only going to escalate.

Governments are not up to the challenge as we see more unrest and radical organisations and Critical Race Theory taking hold. Civil unrest is already rampant in the USA and will only escalate and the stage is being set for the Antichrist to come on the scene. The end time scenario prophesied in God’s Word is beginning to play out. Christians that hold to God’s moral values are already being ridiculed and ostracised. Institutional Churches are increasingly compromising with the world’s values (apostasy) exactly as prophesied.

Just before Jesus went to The Cross on our behalf and the disciples were overwhelmed with the events unfolding at the time. Jesus had already told them that He was going to die and be resurrected but this was beyond their comprehension. They wanted to know what was happening and asked Jesus to tell them.

Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?

And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet…. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.Matthew 24:4-6, 9-12

How many churches are preparing their brothers and sisters for the coming tribulation? Sadly, not many.

God is using the tribulation that is already upon us to purify His church. Only those saints that have been born again with the Holy Spirit will be empowered to serve Jesus and live lives that bring glory to God the Father. For those Christians this will be an exciting time as they serve God in the power of the Holy Spirit with all of the ministry gifts of the Spirit being manifested just as they were in the early church as described in the Book of Acts.

PHILADELPHIA IS THE KEY – WATCH THIS IMPORTANT PROPHECY

If this prophecy is true it will be proof God is in control of all events on His earth. I do not know the prophet but he certainly sounds authentic and he has a lot at stake if it is not true. As I have mentioned before, in the spirit I believe God will use this election for His purposes we only have to wait and see how that plays out. If it happens as in this prophecy it should cause a revival in His church. Church, it is time to repent and pray as we see the events play out in the coming weeks.

ANARCHY IS THE WAY FORWARD FOR AMERICA

“Nah. I’m not going to call for peace. We’ve tried peace. For years. Y’all don’t understand that language. We are calling for a complete dismantling of American policing. It’s NOT broken. It was built to work this way. And mayhem is the consequence. You earned it.”

In a new episode of Fox Nation’s “No Interruption,” Tomi Lahren sat down with the president of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, Hawk Newsome, who argued that his organization and others like it are justified in using destruction to call attention to their grievances with American society. “The riot is the language of the unheard,” said Newsome, who compared modern-day protests to The Boston Tea Party.

The quote “language of the unheard” is from Martin Luther King Jr’s “The Other America” speech, delivered in 1967 and 1968. In the speeches, King did not defend rioting but said it was the result of understandable anger.

“What if you throw a whole bunch of tea in the water and start a war?” Newsome continued at another point in the interview. “That’s what this country was built on.”

Lahren specifically challenged Newsome over recent anti-police protests in the New York area and, most notably, a Jan. 31 demonstration involving reportedly thousands of protesters who flooded transportation stations and hubs around New York City. The protests were reportedly organized by a collection of 30 grassroots groups called “Decolonize This Place.”

Protesters carried signs with slogans like “F— the Police” and “No cops! No fares!”  NYPD Chief Terence Monahan said in a tweet that some individuals even attempted to “physically assault” police officers.

“There are a lot of black people who say ‘f— the police,'” said Newsome. “But the majority of the people out there who are saying ‘f— the police’, in these particular events, are white people.”

“You have to really start to ask why people say, ‘f— the police,'” he continued. “You really have to take away this fetish or the way that we fantasize policing and really look at it for what it really is.”

COPS GTFO

“From day one, black people’s interactions with the police had been negative,” argued Newsome, who says that the “institution of policing” is racist. “They started out with slave patrols,” he said, pointing to the federal Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850, which allowed for the capture and return of enslaved people.

“The Fugitive Slave Act, where they would take black people, stop them in the street, ask them for their papers, if they couldn’t produce them they’d send them back into slavery,” he said. “Sometimes they sent free people back into slavery. The interaction between black people and police in this country has never been good.”

While Lahren said she disagreed with Newsome’s assessment of the police, she said she wanted to focus on the tactics of the movement.

“I’m not going to disagree with what you believe in… What I’m saying is this — when we’re talking about solving problems, the methods in which I’ve seen groups like Black Lives Matter advance their ills or societal grievances — when it turns into burning, looting in the streets, I don’t see it being productive,” said Lahren.

Newsome claimed that destructive protests are rare, but he did not condemn them.

“For a country that drops bombs on people, for a country that incarcerates people, for a country that enslaves people — to criticize us for vandalism is preposterous,” said Newsome.

“I want to make sure I’m getting you clearly,” pressed Lahren. “It is OK to vandalize, to light things on fire and to loot businesses because the United States of America drops bombs on other countries, and because we have problems… people have grievances.”

“It is OK to act in that manner? And you co-sign on to that as the chairman of Black Lives Matter. You were saying that that is OK?”

“I think that it is a tool of white supremacy to say if you want freedom, then you get it by protesting peacefully,” said Newsome.

“Why is it a tool of white supremacy?” he concluded. “Because the white supremacists who built this country never earned anything peacefully. They did it through bullets and blood. And that’s the American way.”

THE BIBLICAL TRUMP/CYRUS PATTERN CONTINUES

Biblical prophecy has revealed a pattern in the history of Cyrus and Trump that we can see unfolding in the USA today. Recall, as Daniel was in mourning, fasting and prayer, the archangel Gabriel assisted by Michael wrestled with and overcame the prince of Persia 21 days! When did this happen? It was the third year of Cyrus reign. This was a decisive moment in the battle of angels and principalities fighting to stop the building of God’s house by a struggling remnant in Jerusalem. (Daniel 10:1-3)

Picture 1 of 10

Likewise, Donald Trump came to a decisive confrontation with the militant leaders of modern-day Persia (Iran ) at the end of his third year.

On Jan, 3rd he took out, Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani, the mastermind behind the destabilising of American bases, the embassy, and USA presence in Iraq. Then on January 20th, Donald Trumps’ third-year ended.

The 21 day period following this ending takes us to February 10th. What happened in the last 21 days?

During this 21 day period of time, Trumps’ impeachment, trial, and acquittal were accomplished. He delivered his State of the Union address and finished what Bill Maher and other dismayed critics called “his best week yet.”

At the State of the Union, we all watched Nancy Pelosi, standing behind President Trump, tear up the President’s speech. It was a manifestation of the spirit of rebellion and witchcraft that has infested the left like a virus.

Dr. Lance Walnau senses something else at work. “That veil of witchcraft is beginning to tear off of the United States. A further unmasking is coming when Durham and Barr expose what they have found. Rudy Giuliani has been treated like a laughing stock, but his data is now being given review by the Senate. All this is the unfolding of a lot of prayer.”

Back to Daniel’s 21-day prayer battle––this is what he was praying about. The restoration of his nation and the struggles of the movement to overcome political intrigues. When the Jewish remnant answered the decree of Cyrus and returned to Jerusalem, they met strong, deeply rooted (deep state) resistance. The Lord brought forth the Prophets Haggai and Zechariah to speak a divine prophetic word to the leaders – Zerubbabel, the Governor, and Joshua, the High Priest. The governor and the priest needed to line up. Again, God raised up two prophetic voices (two is the number of agreement) to stir the remnant up and challenge them to work together and not give up! God was with them!

Lance Walnau sees the number of believers right now hearing the call to government as a sign of what God is doing in the USA. Many are running for Congress in 2020.

He also says, “the church must find a new balance between revival and reformation. It is not either/or, it is both. If we fail to do the difficult work of reformation that is upon us, the church will watch the radical left shut down freedom of speech. God is letting us choose. Heaven’s plan is to give us an extension of mercy and a time of reformation.”

PREDICTIVE PROPHECIES MAKE BIBLE UNIQUE

No sacred book of any other world religion reveals future events as does the Bible. It is unique in this regard. God’s prophets predict with amazing accuracy and descriptive detail – events of history many centuries before they took place and future events up to the end of this age.

“For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,”
Isaiah 56:9-10

The ability to predict history with such accuracy implies the ability to control history. In fact, God the creator, the one who sustains the cosmos can say without contradiction, “My purposes will stand.”

One of the major themes of biblical prophecy is the destiny of Israel. From the birth of Israel as a nation to the final consummation of their destiny, every major stage has been predicted by its prophets. At least 80 percent of these prophecies have been already fulfilled, so it is reasonable to presume that the other 20 percent will be fulfilled with equal accuracy.

Interwoven with Israel’s history is the destiny of another people the church of Jesus Christ. The church had its origin within Israel and all the early Christians were Jews.

Jesus was Israel’s long awaited Messiah, but sadly the Pharisees and Sadducee’s rejected Him, and the Jews were cast out of their homeland and scattered across the world exactly as prophesied. However, the Bible tells us that God would gather them from all the nations and bring them back to their homeland at the appointed time. This extraordinary event happened in 1948, and it signalled one of the major signs Jesus gave us of His second coming.

Slide from Prophesied Restoration of Israel – Prior to Jesus Second Coming

One of the most exciting features of the period in which we live is that the destinies of Israel and the church are beginning to converge. Berean Christians recognise from the prophecies that Israel’s regathering to their homeland is one of the signs preparatory to Jesus second coming.

Is your church preparing its members for the tribulation that is prophesied prior to Jesus return? Is your church actively engaged in bringing in the “end times” harvest? If not, get into prayer to determine what it is God would have you do at this critical time in earths history.

ARE PROPHESIED MIDDLE EAST WARS IMMINENT 3

Netanyahu: ‘No choice but to go to war with Hamas’

Netanyahu said war against Hamas in Gaza appeared to be inevitable by World Israel News Staff

“There will be no choice but to enter a campaign, to war against Gaza,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with Israel’s Kan public radio on Thursday.

“Israeli citizens know perfectly well that I act responsibly and with discretion. I’ll will open the campaign at the most appropriate moment, I will determine it. When you are in charge you have to decide how you’re going to conduct the war… I won’t start it a second before conditions are optimal. I won’t go one minute before we’re prepared. And I won’t start it in one minute. We’re preparing for a different kind of war, and this is my responsibility,” Netanyahu said.

During the week, terrorists from Gaza have fired a number of rocket salvos at the Jewish State. On Tuesday, a rocket attack forced Netanyahu to evacuate a campaign event in Ashdod in the middle of his speech.

Israeli air force hits more Gaza targets after rocket attack

DF fighter craft hit additional terror targets in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening after the rocket attack earlier in the afternoon.

Since the end of March, 2018, when the Hamas terror group orchestrated its ‘March of Return,’ in which thousands rioted at the Gaza-Israel border, Israel has endured repeated rocket attacks.

The worst case was in early May when Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad fired nearly 700 rockets at Israel over several days. Four Israelis were killed in that attack.

God’s Word tells us in advance how it will end and war is inevitable.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE LAST DAYS

This video series by Nelson Walters on How to Prepare for the Last Days is much needed by the church so I encourage you to circulate the series widely to friends and families.

Most Christians believe we’re in the end times , but do nothing to prepare. That is why Nelson put together this video, “How to Prepare for the Last Days. It first answers three fundamental questions:

1. Have the end times begun?

2. I’m saved, what else do I need to do?

3. What are God’s purposes for the end times?

Once these questions are answered, everyone will want to see the rest of the video to learn Jesus’s special commands for the last days and the believers’ role in them.

God uses catastrophes for His purposes. The book Mystery of Catastrophes is a great resource to show what God is doing in these last days through catastrophes such as what we are seeing in the Middle East. God plans to bring more catastrophes across our paths to provide us with opportunities to present the love of God and the Gospel to the lost.

I have a power point sermon – The Mystery of Catastrophes (based on Joel and Nathan’s book) up on http://www.powerpointsermons.net for Home Group/Church use.

The following video is video 3 in the 9 part series. The whole series is about 2 hours in duration. I recommend of course that you schedule to watch all 9, but this video is a good starting point.
