America was set up by its founding fathers to serve God and it has received the abundant blessings of God. Moreover, it has received many warnings, as did Israel, as it has increasingly turned away from God. Jonathan Cahn documented those warnings in his book, The Harbinger. Cahn documents how in 2001, God took His hand of protection off of American and allowed the terrorist (Assyrians) strike of 9/11, since then catastrophes have intensified, just as God struck Israel, and unless America repents of its horrific sins such as killing its babies, now gay marriage and transgender madness, it may suffer the same fate of Israel, utter devastation (70AD).
I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING MORE TRAGIC THAN LIVING LIFE WITH A FALSE SENSE OF REALITY.
I am certain God exists because I have the Holy Spirit resident in my spirit. The Holy Spirit came to be my counsellor, teacher and comforter when I repented of my godless lifestyle, recognised who Jesus is and what He had accomplished for me by dying on the Cross.
God has revealed in His Word why this world is as it is with pain, death and suffering. True history reveals that God is involved in this worlds events. The extent of man’s rebellion against God was revealed when God destroyed all of mankind except one family that He preserved on a massive boat. The fossil record – dead things buried all over the world including fossil fuels demonstrates the truth of God’s judgement with a world wide flood.
Next God established the nations and caused them to disseminate throughout the world when He created new languages for each people group at Babel. There is no other sensible explanation for the languages or existence of tribes and nations.
God then established Israel as His nation to show the world His rules for fallen mankind living on His planet. At the outset, Israel knew that God would bless them if they obeyed but would judge them if they disobeyed (blessings and curses). God gave them His calendar with appointed Feast Days and the design for a Temple where sacrifices were to be offered as an atonement for sin. These sacrifices were but a foreshadow of God’s son, Jesus, ultimate sacrifice to provide a way for mankind to come back into a relationship with our heavenly Father.
JESUS entered history at the appointed time to establish His church and to divide history into BC and AD.
Israel has clearly demonstrated mankind’s inability to live according to God’s Laws and of course God knew that beforehand. Moses prophesied this would be the case prior to Israel even going into the Promised Land. He said they would be scattered throughout the nations and that only prior to Jesus return to this earth would Israel be regathered and reestablished as a nation ready for Jesus to rule and reign with a rod of iron for 1000 years. Israel’s very existence is proof God exists.
Ultimately, the belief that is true will be consistent with the real world and the one which is untrue will present a view of life that is not in harmony with reality. The paradigm that this world evolved from nothing by chance is a view of life that is not in harmony with reality. Nothing comes from nothing and this complex world where DNA (a word made up of many letters) is the building block of all living things reveals that God’s Word reveals the truth.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5
In this brief treatise on world history showing when God intervened to control the outcome, I have made no mention of God’s adversary Satan and his involvement to upset God’s plan for mankind. Satan deceives mankind. His ultimate aim is their destruction. However, he was created by God. He is a spiritual being in rebellion against God and is unable to do anything outside of God’s control. We need to understand that when Adam and Eve disobeyed God and followed Satan’s lead they gave their sovereignty of this earth to him. If we do not repent and except God’s forgiveness through Jesus sacrifice on our behalf then we continue to be under the authority of Satan and will do evil continually.
What is your world view does it line up with reality?
Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin wound up the last day of his trip to Australia on Wednesday with a meeting with Prime Minister Scott Morrison at Parliament House in Canberra.
Rivlin thanked Morrison for “Australia’s friendship and commitment to the State of Israel and to the Australian Jewish community,” stressing that relations with Australia were among “the cornerstones of Israeli diplomacy.”
Australia is adamant that the ICC has no jurisdiction to investigate alleged war crimes in Judea and Samaria, and Gaza, since it does not “recognise a so-called ‘State of Palestine’” and does not “recognise that there is such a State Party to the ICC’s Rome Statute,” an Australian Foreign Ministry spokesperson stated.
Morrison told Rivlin that “Australia is happy to stand with Israel in the international arena,” stressing the “important” relations between the states and its people.
It seems as if Scott Morrison understands that God’s covenant to bless those nations that bless Israel and to curse those nations that curse Israel is still operative and will be until Jesus returns and rules the nations from Jerusalem in the Millennium. Smart move Scott (Australia’s friendship and commitment to the State of Israel and to the Australian Jewish community), you will bring further blessing on this nation. We are extremely thankful to God for the recent rains to break the drought in NSW.
There is the scoreboard that cannot be contested, the disproportionately high number of Nobel Prizes Jews have won, and the incontrovertible fact that, despite their tiny numbers, Jews have risen to the top of just about every conceivable field of endeavour except those from which they were excluded. Jews have won more than 20 percent of all Nobel Prizes that have been awarded.
As New York Times columnist Bret Stephens noted, we inevitably are confronted with the following question: “How is it that a people who never amounted even to one-third of 1 percent of the world’s population contributed so seminally to so many of its most path breaking ideas and innovations?” God provides the answer.
God said, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:2-3
But as Stephens soon discovered, in today’s “woke” world in which any discussion about the achievements of any group, but especially the Jews, is forbidden, to even ask such a question is to call down upon oneself an avalanche of abuse.
Rather than calling out as racists those who recognise the reality of a certain genius that Jewish civilisation has produced, it is those who find this notion insufferable who should be asked what it is about the reality of Jewish success that makes them so angry.
U.S. envoys Jason Greenblatt and David Friedman attended the inauguration of a Jewish heritage site in eastern Jerusalem on Sunday. This move signals support for Israel’s hold over parts of the city that Palestinians want for a future state.
“The City of David brings biblical Jerusalem back to life,” Friedman said at the event. “It enables every one of us to stroll the corridors where the ancient prophets of Israel gave voice to revolutionary ideals of freedom, liberty and human dignity.”
“It is our unique privilege as Americans to walk together with our Israeli counterparts on the just unveiled Pilgrimage Road, where our shared ancestors ascended the flagstone steps in prayer and blessing,” he said.

Earlier Friedman and Greenblatt slammed the activists who had protested their cooperation in the event, with Friedman saying that discovery “brings truth and science to a debate that has been marred too long by myths.”
All of the recent discoveries at the old City of David are proof indeed at this time when many are denying Israel’s right to the land. Watch this short important video. We certainly do live in exciting times
Israel is God’s vehicle to bring salvation to all the world. It is central to His redemptive purposes.
God created Israel to be His “Kingdom” on earth. Nine times, He described the Land of Israel as His “Land”—“the place He has chosen as the dwelling place for His Name.”
Israel’s rebirth in 1948 after almost 1900 years was a miracle, a miracle which Jesus prophesied in the Olivet Discourse (parable of the fig tree) as the first major sign prior to His return.
My temple will stand in Israel for all time, and I will live among My people and be their God. Every nation on earth will know that My temple is in Israel and that I have chosen the Israelites to be My people.” Ezekiel 37:24-28
Recently The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) made claims that the Jewish people had no historical claim to Jerusalem and yet the artefacts found in the City of David provide irrefutable proof of the Jewish People’s ties to Jerusalem, dating back over 3,000 years.

In 1867, British archaeologist Charles Warren was digging in the area around the Old City of Jerusalem. The Ottomans did not allow digging on Temple Mount, which turned out to be a wonderful thing for Warren, as it allowed him to discover the Ancient Biblical City of David.
The city was hidden for nearly 2,000 years, and Warren uncovered it, beginning a journey of 150 years of digging and discovery. New artefacts and archaeological sites are still being uncovered today, giving us insight into Biblical Israel and Jerusalem. Until Warren’s discovery, people thought that ancient Jerusalem was limited to the confines of the Old City Walls. Warren’s discovery changed that misconception.

Fifty years later the 1917 Balfour Declaration giving the land of Israel back to the Jewish people,
Fifty years later the 1967 Six-Day War and the Jews take back control of Jerusalem.
Fifty years later the 2017 recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by President Donald Trump and America—the first such declaration issued by a major world power since ancient times.
God spoke to Moses: “Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet sound throughout the land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession , and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you ; in it you shall neither sew nor reap what grows of its own accord , nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you…
Basically, it was a time of release, when land was restored to its original owner, release of Hebrew servants, restoration of all inheritances. Debt was released every Shemitah (every seven years). God understood fallen man so instituted His way of restoring things and giving people another chance in His nation. Notice all is built around the family. It is God’s basic building block for society. Is it any wonder it is under ferocious attack by Satan and his demons.
Will we reach 2067 before Jesus returns to rule and reign from Jerusalem I am not so sure? By 2067, Jesus may be ruling and reigning in Jerusalem with resurrected saints.
A simple interpretation of Daniel 8 suggests Iran is going to invade most of the Middle East (the vision concerns the time of the end”. Iran’s current presence in Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Gaza (Hamas) and continued threats to annihilate Israel already give credence to this prophesy. The following article just confirms that this event is an important one in end times Biblical prophecy.
Former Intelligence Chief: Gravest Threat Facing Israel is ‘First Northern War
“The gravest threat we face is not the third Lebanon war, but the first northern war – simultaneous conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, which Hamas in the south is likely to join,” warned IDF Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, former head of the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate.
Speaking while presenting President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday with the 2019 Strategic Assessment from the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) which he currently heads, Yadlin noted that “Israel of 2019 is a strong country, the IDF is extremely powerful and deters our enemies.” The INSS research highlights the major political and diplomatic issues facing Israel in the near future. On the list of leading threats by severity, the INSS’s 2019 assessment includes war with all the enemy forces and on all fronts in the north – Iran on the Golan Heights, Hezbollah (Iran proxy) in Lebanon, and the Syrian regime – as well as a military conflict in the south with Hamas (Iran funded) in Gaza and a deterioration of the situation in Judea and Samaria.

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.
