TEMPLE MOUNT IN LAST DAYS BIBLICAL PROPHECY

Netanyahu-Erdogan fight escalates amid high tensions on Temple Mount

“We will continue to defend the rights of the Palestinians and the religious sanctuaries in Jerusalem for the Muslim world until our last breath,” Erdogan said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, calling him a “murderer who oppresses the Palestinian nation.” Erdogan made his comments in the context of recent tensions on the Temple Mount.

Netanyahu-Erdogan fight escalates amid high tensions on Temple Mount

“We will continue to defend the rights of the Palestinians and the religious sanctuaries in Jerusalem for the Muslim world until our last breath. Instead of ending the occupation, Netanyahu is working to attack me on social networks in order to win votes in the elections,” Erdogan said.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu wrote on Twitter: “The Turkish tyrant Erdogan attacks Israeli democracy, while judges and journalists are sitting in jail. What a joke. Israel is a democracy in which all its citizens have equal rights, including two million Arab citizens.”

The Bible tells us that tension between the surrounding Muslim nations and Israel will only escalate until the Antichrist appears on central stage and for a short time bring an illusory Middle East peace.

I believe beforehand, we are going to see the prophesied Daniel 8, end times (ram/goat invasions). Iran (Shia) invades west (Iraq), north (Syria, Northern Iraq, Eastern Turkey (some Shia Muslims), south (oil rich, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE). To some extent, these prophesied invasions are already underway with Iran forces in Iraq and Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

Daniel 8 tells us Iran’s (Shia) invasion will eventually be countered by Turkey (Sunni). In fact, we are told the goat (Turkey) tramples the ram (Iran) and then we will see a revived Ottoman Empire with its leader, their prophesied Mahdi/Messiah, the Bible’s prophesied Antichrist. Imagine, the support the Mahdi (Islam’s Messiah) will receive from Muslim’s all around the world regardless of the country in which they live and its politics.

 

 

 

 

9TH OF AV – PROOF GOD IS IN CONTROL OF HISTORY

9th of Av is the most solemn day on the Jewish calendar. It occurs on the 9th day of the 5th month on the Jewish calendar – Av (30 days, equivalent July- August).

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE 9TH OF ARV?

Thousands of years ago God vowed to Abraham that He would “bless those who bless you; and curse those who curse you.” (Gen 12:3) Many individuals, nations, and empires have put God’s Word to the test. As one of the greatest superpowers the world has ever known, has Britain proved the potency and longevity of God’s ancient covenant with Abraham and his descendants?

This documentary film traces the rise and fall of the British Empire as it intertwines with Britain’s complex historical relationship with the Jewish People. What was Britain’s role in the re-birth of Israel in her historic homeland? How did Britain’s rich Christian heritage intersect with geo-political factors surrounding the First and Second World War? Did Britain’s destiny end in a forsaken promise?

Presented by Lance Lambert, the film features interviews with academics and church leaders, alongside eye-witness accounts, historical footage, and live action dramatisation of an epic journey with urgent implications for our modern times. It demonstrates God is in complete control of events on His planet. World history is unfolding exactly as He says it will in His book, the Bible. Another great movie from Hatikvah Films. Check them out for other great prophetic Biblical films particularly relating to the role of Israel in Gods plans.

 

UNDERSTANDING THE TIMES CONCERNING JEWS, ARABS AND THE MIDDLE EAST

Avner and Jonathan provide wonderful testimonies of growing up as Jews and how they came to learn about Jesus as their Messiah. Two very different accounts which is helpful in understanding Jews and how we can reach out to them.

Avner Boskey of Final Frontiers Ministries was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home. Since coming to faith in Yeshua (Jesus), he has lived in Israel for more than 20 years, where he has become an expert on the Middle East. He joins Rabbi Jonathan Bernis for a discussion about Israel today, the Palestinians and how God’s passion for the Jewish people and Israel affects all Believers. Avner is the author of a great book: Jews, Arabs and the Middle East: A Messianic Perspective.

“And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written” – Romans 11 what do we do with that Scripture?

What is God is calling us to do with regard to prophesied increased persecution coming to Jews in the last days. Please pray for wisdom in this regard.

TRUMP’S PEACE PLAN: WILL IT BRING JUDGEMENT ON THE USA?

Could the Peace Plan for Israel and Palestine, the plan, which President Donald Trump has dubbed the ‘Deal of the Century,’ be the covenant in Daniel 9:27 that introduces the last seven years prior to Jesus return to earth to commence His Millennial reign? When Yeshua was asked about His coming and the end of the age, in Matthew 24: 15, He referred to the above verse in Daniel.

All who have tried to create lasting peace between Israel and her neighbours have failed;  yet, the Word of God says that one man will appear to succeed. This man’s peace plan will begin the final countdown to the return of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah).

After the Israeli elections on April 9th, President Trump is planning to unveil a Two State “Final Solution” which will not only be dangerous for Israel, but will be the 4th and Final National Apostasy which positions the United States to receive God’s poured out Judgement.

It won’t be Trump’s Peace Plan that ushers in peace for the first half of the seven years prior to Jesus return to rule and reign. Trump has been God’s Cyrus as Jonathan reveals in his presentation below. However, if Trump’s Peace Plan forces Israel to give up land then we know that his actions will bring God’s judgement upon the USA.

In light of the urgency to make peace in the Middle East, it is vital to understand what the Prophet Daniel and Yeshua (Jesus) told us about this peace plan and the last days, so we can recognise the times and warn others also.

Joel gives us the end of the story: “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I will put them on trial for what they did to My inheritance, My people Israel, because they scattered My people among the nations and divided up My land.”  (Joel 3:2)

Jonathan Cahn ties Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy into events that are unfolding in our time. Be amazed at the detail given in this prophecy of coming events, confirming the Bible is God’s Word and trustworthy. All of the unfulfilled Biblical prophecies of the end times will happen exactly as prophesied.

UN PASSES 6 ANTI ISRAEL RESOLUTIONS IN ONE DAY

The U.N. passed six resolutions against Israel on Friday, preserving its reputation of being obsessed with attacking the Jewish State and rejecting Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. The Bible reveals that at the “end times’ this small (geography) country would be the centre of hostility, surrounded by nations intent on its destruction. In the natural it makes no sense, but in the spiritual it makes complete sense. Satan knows Scripture. Jesus said He will return to rule and reign from Jerusalem. Satan is intent on doing his utmost to stop that from happening. 

UN passes 6 anti-Israel resolutions in one day, rejects Jewish ties to Jerusalem

As Muslim countries dominate the UN it is conceivable that the Antichrist, who I believe will be the Muslim Mahdi will be elected the Secretary General of the UN. It is no coincidence that most of the Middle East Muslim nations believe the return of their Messiah – Mahdi is imminent. The table below is revealing.

It is useful now, to look at Daniel’s revelation of the Kingdoms that will rule during the “end times” prior to Jesus return which will give us a clue to the Antichrist identity.

  • Which Kingdoms best fit the dream Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Neo-Babylonian Empire, had that Daniel 2 revealed were four Empires that would succeed the Neo Babylonian Empire.
  • Daniel reveals Medo-Persia and Greek Empires would succeed Nebuchadnezzar but he does not reveal the fourth Empire. However, the description given that the fourth Empire would completely crush the former territories of the previous three Empires, reveals the identity of the only Empire to accomplish this feat. It is an Islamic Caliphate – The Ottoman Empire.
  • The Final Empire is a revived but divided fourth Empire – an Islamic Caliphate which the Antichrist will rule, partially overcoming the Sunni/Shia divide

The six anti Israel resolutions passed in one day.

The first, titled “The Syrian Golan,” passed with 100 votes in favour, 12 against and 62 abstentions. For a second consecutive year, the United Kingdom broke with the European Union to vote against it, joining the United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands and a few others.

The second, titled “Jerusalem,” was adopted with 148 votes in favour, 11 against and 14 abstentions, rejects Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. Israel and the United States were joined by Canada, Australia, Guatemala and six others to vote against.

The third, titled “Division for Palestinian Rights of the Secretariat,” which appropriates U.N. funds for anti-Israel purposes, passed with 96 votes in favour, 13 against and 64 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Australia Canada, Moldova, Hungary, Honduras, Guatemala and others voted against it.

The fourth, “Special information programme on the question of Palestine of the Department of Public Information of the Secretariat,” was adopted with 152 votes in favour, eight against and 14 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Guatemala and a few others voted against the resolution. “The program eschews a balanced approach by overtly choosing the Palestinian over Israeli narrative, ignoring terrorism against Israeli men, women and children, and other daily realities of Israeli life,” stated U.N. Watch.

The fifth, “Peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine,” passed 156 votes in favour, eight against and 12 abstentions. The United States, Israel Canada, Australia and four others voted against the measure, which solely blames Israel for no peace in the area.

The sixth resolution, “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People,” was adopted 100 votes in favour, 12 against and 62 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Australia, Canada and Hungary joined several other countries to vote against the resolution. This committee invited Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill to speak on Wednesday, where he advocated for “a Free Palestine From the River to the Sea,” in addition to making other anti-Israel comments.

I am encouraged that Australia was amongst the nations that voted against these resolutions. Where does your nation stand in this regard? Will it be a sheep or goat nation? Only sheep nations get to continue on into the Millennium, so if yours voted for these resolutions, I would be on my knees in prayer interceding for a turn around. Mind you, I am on my knees for Australia, as our future is in the balance.

ISLAM’S WAR TO DESTROY ISRAEL IS UNDERWAY

A top Palestinian official declared that Islam’s religious war to destroy Israel’s “culture of Satan” has begun.

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ adviser on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash stated on official Palestinian TV that “Jerusalem is the arena of conflict between us and the colonialist project [Israel]… Jerusalem’s [Al-Aqsa] Mosque is the head of the conflict and the starting point of the historic battle between Islam and its enemies.”

Al-Habbash characterised the fight as a war between “Islamic culture in all its splendour” and “the culture of Satan, oppression and aggression.”

However, God has said, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness (reeling) to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who heave it away will surely be cut to pieces, though all the nations of the earth are gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:2,3

 

LISTEN TO JEWS CELEBRATING 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Jews are now celebrating their 70th anniversary. Searching for information on their 70th anniversary, I discovered this video of Jews celebrating their 50th anniversary and was blown away by how they celebrate their story and how they see it unfolding. They know that the return to their land and their protection in four wars was miraculous and orchestrated by God. They also know the end of their story:

God to Moses (Exodus 6:7) “I will take you as My people, and I will be your God.”

However, they are still to recognise Jesus as their Messiah as described in Zechariah 12:10:

“And I will pour on the House of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a first born.”

IRON DOME – GOD’S HAND OF PROTECTION ON ISRAEL

The Iron Dome missile defence system was voted Israel’s all time top innovation in a competition organised by the Ministry of Economy in honour of Israel’s 70th Yom Ha’atzmaut (Independence Day) celebrations. The Iron Dome is a missile and rocket interception system developed in 2007 by Rafael Advanced Defence Systems and Israel Aircraft Industries. Since its deployment, the system has intercepted more than 1,700 missiles and rockets fired at Israel, almost entirely by the Hamas terror organisation from Gaza, although it has also downed mortar shells in the Golan Heights and intercepted rockets fired from Lebanon.

I believe the Iron Dome is just another example of how God has His hand of protection on Israel. When one considers how God has protected His nation since its miraculous rebirth in 1948 and in four major Arab-Israeli defensive wars (1947-49), 1956, 1967, and 1973, it is hard to refute God’s involvement. All of these battles involved a miraculous element for Israel to win.

In the first critical weeks after the British left the region and Israel declared its independence, the combined Arab armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Trans-Jordan, Iraq, and contingents from Saudi Arabia and Yemen faced a small Jewish militia with three tanks and five artillery pieces. Their intent was clear: “Destruction of Israel”. Israel had no air force and until arms were rushed in from abroad it relied on the only strengths it had: 70 years of social solidarity and a belief that God had given them this land. Israel’s citizens also understood that defeat meant the end, period.

Against all odds, Israel prevailed, it was undoubtedly miraculous but came at a high cost, 6,000 Israeli’s killed and 15,000 severely wounded. This was out of a total population of 600,000.

In June of 1967, the combined armies of Egypt, Syria,, and Jordan attacked Israel with the clear purpose expressed by Egypt’s President, once again: “Destruction of Israel”. These combined armies had approximately 465,000 troops, more than 2,880 tanks and 810 aircraft. Israel was totally outnumbered on all fronts and yet once again won miraculously. It regained in a Jubilee year territories of  East Jerusalem, West Bank, Sinai and the Golan Heights, clear evidence of God’s involvement. Want to read about “Miracles of the Six Day War” go onto the internet and be encouraged by the numerous amazing accounts.

The Arab objective of to eradicate the Jewish State has not changed, and we know from Biblical prophecy, that it will not change until Jesus returns and destroys the United Nations army that would have destroyed Israel except for His intervention.

Iron Dome voted greatest Israeli invention of all time

Iron Dome received 28 percent of the 115,000 votes cast in the online competition titled “70 Great Blue and White Inventions.”

The Iron Dome registered a 90 percent success rate during Operation Protective  Edge in the summer of 2014.

“During its years of existence, Israel has become a world power in everything related to technological and scientific innovation,” said Minister of Industry and Economy Eli Cohen.

“I am sure that the Israeli characteristics, including original thinking, boldness, rapid adaptation to changing conditions and the ability to circumvent obstacles will help us to continue to bring to the world Israeli innovation,” he added. “There is no dispute that the inventions that have just been chosen by the public as leading inventions are excellent examples of Israel’s ability to provide solutions to significant challenges, inspire the entire world and are a national pride for Israel.”

IS THERE PROPHETIC MEANING IN ISRAEL’S 70TH BIRTHDAY?

Report by Israeli Messianic Jewish Communicator Ron Cantor who is host of “Out of Zion” on God TV.

President Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital and pledged to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Israel’s 70th anniversary, May 14. Many prophetic voices have called him a type of Cyrus.

Just after Israel celebrated 50 years of a united Jerusalem (1967 Six-Day War – 2017), about 12 different Israeli ministries were planning a major outreach with American evangelists Todd White, Tom Ruotolo and Robbie Dawkins, who move in healing and prophecy. During this 70th year, they carried it out.

Last week, they had more than 200 people on the streets of Jerusalem, not only preaching the good news of Yeshua, but also praying for sick and seeing them healed. There were many who had words of knowledge regarding sicknesses and family members in need. Several Israelis prayed to receive Yeshua.

Israeli believers found a boldness they had never known. One of them said that he moved to Israel more than 20 years ago and has always been paralyzed with fear. However, this week, he and his team boldly shared the gospel. He went to one of his clients with his team and the client was in severe back pain. This man was instantly healed and then told all his employees to come receive prayer, and they were healed.

As far as I know, this was the largest outreach of prophetic/healing evangelism in Jerusalem since the very first believers. And it happened just as we are approaching the 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel as a nation.

In John 4, Yeshua leaves the Jews of Jerusalem to go reach the Jews of the Galilee. Yet, on the way, he purposely goes through gentile Samaria. Now I know some people teach that Samaritans were half Jews, but they were not. Yes, some intermarried with Israelites, but they came from the Assyrian kingdom after the 10 northern tribes were conquered. In effect, Yeshua leaves the Israelite population—brings revival to a Samaritan town and stays with them for two days—and then returns to the Jews in the Galilee.

Peter tells us that, “With the Lord a day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (2 Pet. 3:8) The Lord spent two days with the gentiles, or symbolically 2,000 years. But then, He returns to Galilee, and while they had rejected Him in the past, it says they welcomed Him (John 4:45).

Prophetic Meaning

Could this be foreshadowing that Yeshua would begin with the Jews, but then focus on the gospel going forth into all nations for 2,000 years, and then come back to the Jewish people, who will welcome Him? Yes, because this is exactly what Scripture says!

Yeshua tells the Jews of Jerusalem, “For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'” In Hebrew, this phrase, “Blessed is he who comes,” is how we greet people, even today. Yeshua is saying, “Until you—the Jewish people—welcome me, I will not return.”

Furthermore, we have this promise in Romans 11 that tells us only after a massive Gentile harvest, will revival come to Israel.

“For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, lest you be wise in your own estimation, for a partial hardening has come upon Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.” (Rom.11:25-26).

He calls this revelation a mystery and warns them that they could miss it because of pride over Israel (Rom. 11:19-21). And here is the mystery: We are approaching or have already approached the fullness of the nations. Now it is time for Jewish harvest, even as Israel celebrates her 70th birthday since rebirth. It is time for the eyes of the Jewish people to be opened to her Messiah.

Hallelujah! God is the author of the times and dates, and He has woven a beautiful mosaic that will result in a great harvest in Israel and in the nations.
