Europe Led by Germany is on the way to becoming a Military Power

The link below perfectly explains the direction the United States and the European Union are heading.

Mr.Trump called out NATO nations for refusing to pay their fair share of military expenses while he visited with them on his recent trip. This was a fair request but no American President has ever gone so far and used tough language as Mr. Trump used.

If the European Union, as I believe, is the coming "beast" power, then the article below explains it well. Once Europe begins to seriously prepare for their own defense the dynamics in the Middle East will change radically.

This is the beginning of America pulling back from the world into a semi-isolationist stance. Future financial crisis will force the U.S. to further reduce her participation in Europe's defense. Germany is the natural leader of Europe and they have been slowly building their military.

The assault on Europe's cultures by radical terrorists will at some point cause the EU to take serious action, if only to preserve their various cultures. That day is coming.

Even Israel will begin to look more toward Germany and the EU as we move forward. War in the Middle East will soon cause great changes to occur in whom administers the Holy Land religious sites. The U.S. is going to experience a financial crisis that will seriously affect her ability to participate in the coming Middle East crisis. The EU will take the lead.

How long this will take is anyone's guess. Yahweh is not in a hurry. He is patiently working His divine plan through history. The article below is well worth your time. In fact, the Trumpet website is the most accurate prophetical and geopolitically aware site I have seen. They have great insight into the politically realities of our world from a Bible World View.

As President Trump’s trip is coming to an end let’s summarize the trip from a Biblical World View:
Saudi Arabia – The fact that so many Muslim countries came to hear what Mr. Trump had to say is in itself amazing. We know that the Saudi’s are fearful of Iran’s ambitions in the Middle East and this conference was a result of that. Will this coalition really assist in eradicating terrorism? It remains to be seen. The Saudi’s are placing their bet with the United States.

The Saudi’s are also using the U.S. to defy Russia. They don’t trust Russia because Russia is Iran’s #1 supporter. I believe the Saudi’s may become more moderate and open their society a bit more but it won’t happen quickly. They must change if they want to remain the power in the region. This will take some time.

Israel – The Israeli’s were quite pleased with Trump and gave him a warm welcome. Mr. Netanyahu almost seemed jubilant. Whether or not this speeds up the peace process is another story altogether. I don’t see Hamas or Hezbollah changing anytime soon. They train their children to kill Jews. That must change. Golda Meir once said there will only be peace when the terrorists love their children more than they hate Israel.

For the time being Israel can rest assured of American support. Biblically speaking, the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” is still to come. There will be another war in the Middle East before the deceptive peace comes. Read Zechariah 10 through 14 for insight on things to come.

  The Vatican – On the surface this was pretty much just a show. Pope Francis seemed more interested in pushing the global warming agenda then is discussing peace in the Middle East. Like it or not, the Vatican’s main interest in the Middle East is to Administer the Holy Land and its holy sites. This has been the goal since the first crusade a thousand years ago.

      Europe and NATO – What can I say about Europe? Their attitudes on terrorism and borders create the problems they have. In the Bible if a person wanted to become a part of Israel they had to acknowledge the God of Israel and become a citizen that would support the nation. The nations today have display no such common sense.
             There is a statue of a woman riding a beast out in front of the European Parliament Building. Could God be hiding something in plain sight?

 As for NATO, when Trump told them to pay their two percent French President Marcon smirked and Angela Merkel rolled her eyes. Each nation is to take 2% of their GDP and develop their defense forces. Only 5 out of 28 nations are doing that. At least they have been warned. Biblical prophecy indicates the EU will develop a strong army with Germany becoming the leader of that force.

To summarize: The intrigue in the Middle East will continue. Europe and Islam seem to be on a collision course. There will be war in the Middle East at some point and things will become very difficult for Israel in the future. The United Nations and the Vatican will administer the Holy Land from the International City of Jerusalem. All this is where the path is leading. How long it takes we cannot know, but we are told to understand the times and seasons.

While trying to discern what God has been doing since the election of Mr. Trump I came upon some intriguing information about Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump that may have a strong impact on future events.

Jared and Ivanka were married on October 25, 2009 at the Trump golf course at Bedminster, NJ. Mr. Kushner is Jewish and was raised in an Orthodox Jewish household. In 2007, Kushner graduated from New York University, where he earned a JD and an MBA. He interned at Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau's office and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.

Jared is a real estate investor along with his father Charles Kushner. In 1996 Jared purchased the New York Observer a weekly newspaper, for $10 million. In 2012 he put in a bid to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, but later withdrew his offer.

Jared Kushner had been a lifelong Democrat and had made major donations to its candidates for years before reportedly undergoing an "ideological conversion" and supporting the 2015–16 Trump campaign. Kushner has had no prior involvement in campaign politics or in government before his father-in-law, Trump's, campaign.

He was in charge of Mr. Trump’s digital “electronic campaign”, online and social media campaigns. During this time he became very close with his father in law.

Ivanka converted to Judaism when she married Jared and they are modern Orthodox Jews, keep a kosher home, and observe the Jewish Sabbath. For more info:

Jared may now be President Trump’s closest and most trusted advisor on the team. He and Trump’s daughter Ivanka are having tremendous influence on Mr. Trump’s policies and the current Middle East and Vatican trip.

Digging a little deeper I discovered some very interesting information on the Kushner family. Jared and Ivanka apparently belong to the Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, Habad and Chabad-Lubavitch, (Hebrew: חב"ד‎) an Orthodox Jewish, Hasidic movement. Chabad is today one of the world's best known Hasidic movements and is well known for its outreach. It is the largest Hasidic group and Jewish religious organization in the world.

Founded in 1775 by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the name "Chabad" is a Hebrew acronym for "Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge", which represent the intellectual underpinnings of the movement. For more info:

In 1951, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson became the seventh Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, and he transformed it from a small Hasidic movement into the largest and most widespread Jewish movement in the world today. He established a network of more than 3,600 institutions that provide religious, social and humanitarian needs in over 1,000 cities, spanning more than 80 countries and all 50 American states.

The most interesting thing about Rabbi Menachem Schneerson is the fact that many members of the Chabad movement believe he was the Jewish Messiah! Known to many as the Rebbe, he was a Russian Empire-born American Orthodox Jewish rabbi, and the last Lubavitcher Rebbe. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.

During his life his admirers hoped that he would be revealed as the Messiah. Admirers pointed to traditional Jewish theology which teaches that in every generation there is one person who is worthy of being the Messiah, and if God deems the times right, he will be revealed by God as such. Chabad followers also pointed to a tradition that in every generation there is one person who is considered the Messiah of the generation.

A most interesting fact about the Chabad is that many of their members have a strong interest in kabbalah an esoteric and mystical method, discipline, and school of thought that originated in Judaism. Kabbalah's definition varies according to the tradition and aims of those following it, from its religious origin as an integral part of Judaism, to its later Christian, New Age, and Occultist/western esoteric syncretic adaptations. Kabbalah is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an unchanging, eternal, and mysterious Ein Sof (infinity) and the mortal and finite universe (God's creation). While it is heavily used by some denominations, it is not a religious denomination in itself.

The problem with Kabbalah, from a Biblical stand point, is that it is where much of the New Age Movement developed. f Kabbalah is not written in the Word of God (the Bible) but it has a strong influence on those who practice it. It would be considered false teaching by those who allow the Bible to guide them. It is quite possible Mr. Kushner is practicing some form of Kabbalah.

Jared and Ivanka visited the Opel, the Brooklyn gravesite of Rabbi Schneerson to pray for blessing on November 5. 2016 for Mr. Trump’s election campaign. Some fans of the Rebbe claimed that Ivanka and Jared’s prayers at the Ohel saved Trump from harm at a rally in Reno, where the Secret Service rushed the Republican nominee offstage after a scuffle in the audience involving a man whom audience members feared had a gun. Trump later returned to the stage.

Trump later returned to the stage.

In addition to all of these things I have read that Mr. Kushner is a true Zionist and that he has had business relationships with many of the elite millionaires in the world including the infamous Leftist George Soros;

Looking at current events from a Biblical World View but makes this information very helpful in discerning some of the things which are happening. The spider’s web can be very intricate—a true labyrinth of rabbit holes.

Since Mr. Kushner is Trump’s closest and most trusted advisor it is reasonable to believe he has had a large hand in the current Middle East trip and all associated planning. He has Mr. Trump’s ear and is a large part of the driving force behind the improved relations with Saudi Arabia and this Middle East peace initiative. For a young man of 36 years of age he has tremendous global connections in finance, real estate, digital and print media. He is a person of note to be watched carefully as America’s foreign policy under Mr. Trump moves forward.

I watch all this in wonder as our Great and Mighty Elohim moves by His spirit in the affairs of men. Our Elohim (Father God) in carrying out His will on earth, just as He does in the Divine Council of Heaven. All of these forces are coming together as the One World Government is rising.

Use this information to pray for discernment and to connect all the dots as we move towards the New World (Deceptive) Order that will shortly rise up from the sea! Revelation 13.1

You might find this interesting:

One day the Lord spoke to me through this Shakespeare quote:

Then he gave me this:
the sons of Issachar…had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command; 1 Chronicles 12.32


Monday, May 22, 2017


As we continue to follow President Trump’s overseas trip I want to be certain you understand that I am trying to be nonpolitical in interpreting the trip. I am attempting to interpret this trip from a Biblical World View not as a supporter of any political party or dogma.

We have established the fact that Mr. Trump is attempting to put a deal together that will bring peace to the Middle East and Jerusalem. His itinerary includes Islam, Judaism, and Christianity (Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican). In his mind he is thinking BIG. His desire is to accomplish something that hasn’t been done—peace in the Middle East between the Jews and Arabs.

Yesterday we saw the Saudi King speak about tolerance toward all people, against terrorism, and he spoke out strongly against Iran. He was attempting to establish Saudi Arabia as the lead nation in Sunni Islam. He targeted Saudi’s chief enemy Iran as the cause of all the world’s extreme terrorists.

When we look at the number of nations that attended this conference it appears the Saudi’s are attempting to isolate Iran on the world stage. At this time Iran is the biggest threat to peace in the region. President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran has given them an edge in the area and they have been flexing their muscle that last few years. The idea is to marginalize them and form a strong coalition to frustrate Iran’s ambitions.

This coalition would also be attempting to frustrate Russian ambitions in the Middle East. Once again, Mr. Obama’s policies opened the door for Russia to become involved in the Syrian civil war and the Middle East is a more powerful way. Russia has supported Iran and together they are looking to control the Levant which includes the nation of Israel. All of this contributes to Biblical End Time Prophecy.

President Trump spoke strongly to the Arab world in his speech. He denounce terrorism in very strong word’s and gave Saudi Arabia props for trying to stop Islamic extremism. We know the Saudi’s have funded Wahhabism and their version of terror for years. It may be the Saudi’s realize that the extremist terrorist want to bring them down. They may be moderating their stance on terrorism to preserve themselves. Whatever reasons they have we need to watch and see how serious they are in stopping radical terrorism.

Mr. Trump basically challenged the Islamic world to go after the terrorists and seek a lasting peace with the Jewish state. The message was well received but there are always hidden agenda’s among the hearers. It will be interesting to see how serious these countries will attempt to stamp out terrorist cells.

As the protector of Islam’s most holy sites, Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia has the most to gain from this conference. They are making a bid to become the leading Islamic nation. Iran and Turkey are the other two nations with the same ambition. Right now Saudi has the edge.

Mr. Trump now moves on to Israel. Let’s see what comes out of these meetings.

The Bible is clear that the end time apostasy is centered by deception and false religion. The Book of Revelation uses the word deception six times—the whole world is deceived it says. Deception is based on truth. The truth is then subtly twisted so that even the elect are capable of buying into the deception.

This trip by President Trump is momentous from a Biblical World View as it is attempting to build on past efforts by all the parties involved to resolve the issue of Middle East Peace. The Vatican has been pursuing Ecumentalism for decades. They have been reaching out to all faiths to come back under their umbrella. The Pope has also reached out to the Arab world in efforts to bring peace to the Middle East.

Since the Crusades of the 11th Century the Vatican has desired to control the Holy Land. Watch how they pursue this initiative for peace closely. It is going to take time but the foundation for Yeshua’s second coming is being laid as we watch these events play out.

Sunday, May 21, 2017



I’ve been a student of Biblical prophecy and have spent much time in prayer asking for wisdom and understanding of world events in our time. I try to allow the Bible to interpret itself and understand that God is moving throughout human history. He works his will through human events and the actions of the nations. This is the Biblical pattern.

The Jews are in the Holy Land and have established the nation of Israel because the Almighty Yahweh has decreed it to be. Many believe the nation of Israel is a fraud—they do not believe it is God’s will. Read your Bible…the time of the Gentiles is soon to be fulfilled.

I will be watching and praying throughout President Trump’s first overseas trip asking for insight and understanding. Today is the second day of Mr. Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia. It is a momentous event. I sense the world shaking. What is Yahweh up to?

To be able to get the Arab world together in such a way as in this summit is in itself an amazing event. The Saudi’s are the protector and administrator of Islam’s most holy sites. They are very worried about their place in the Arab world because they are in direct opposition to Iran. The Saudi’s are Sunni and the Iranians are Shite. These two sects of Islam are vying for power in the Middle East.

Both sects have promoted terrorism. The Saudi’s support the Wahhabism sect:

Wahhabism is named after an eighteenth-century preacher and activist, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (1703–1792). He started a reform movement in the remote, sparsely populated region of Najd, advocating a purging of such widespread Sunni practices as the veneration of saints, the seeking of their intercession, and the visiting of their tombs, all of which were practiced all over the Islamic world, but which he considered idolatry (shirk), impurities and innovations in Islam (Bid'ah). Eventually he formed a pact with a local leader Muhammad bin Saud offering political obedience and promising that protection and propagation of the Wahhabi movement mean "power and glory" and rule of "lands and men." Wikipedia: Click the link for more.

I think the Saudi’s may be realizing that they must stop supporting radicals if they are to survive as a Middle East power. The alliance with the United States gives them added security and if they become more moderate and open as a society they can become the leader of the Muslim world. They would then like to isolate radical Iran on the world stage.

This gathering of Middle East leaders with the President of the United States is momentous and has never happened in such a grand gathering before. Look at all these leaders in one place. What does it all mean?

The next stop for Mr. Trump will be Israel, the Vatican and a visit with the Pope. What is going on?

President Trump is a very ambitious man and does things on a grand scale—read some of his books. He lives for the art of making deals. I believe he is working on the grandest deal of his life. This trip is all about the deal. The deal is to do something no man has been able to do. The deal is to broker true peace in the Middle East between the three great religions of the world—Islam, Judaism, and Christianity.

Mr. Trump knows he would go done in history as the greatest man ever to live if he can accomplish this unprecedented feat. This is how he thinks. Like it or not this is how the man thinks. This is not about Trump it is about the end times. It is about His-story (God's story) playing out and setting the stage for the second coming of the Messiah Yeshua ha Mashiach.

We are seeing prophecy in action. In order for the stage to be set for an Antichrist figure there must be peace in the Middle East. This is the goal of the Pope and the Vatican. This is the goal of the United States and Europe, and this would be good for a moderate Islamic world.

The globalist world order is coming to fruition before our eyes. Ecumenism ( Human Secularism, the United Nation agenda, and world government is what this trip is all about. It is forming right in front of our eyes!

Watch and pray carefully. Ask the Father for understanding and do not be deceived. Yahweh is in charge. This is all happening very quickly. As the trip progresses we will see if we can understand what is happening. Very exciting stuff! Stay tuned! One step at a time...much more to come!
The Manifest Presence of God - Part 6 By Walter Beuttler

About Walter Beuttler:

This is a great article on the secret things of God that Mr. Beuttler gave in the 1960's

"Thus says the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD which exercise loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD." Jeremiah 9:23-24

God is infinite, but we are finite. Therefore, we cannot fully know or comprehend God. But in many of His ways, the Lord desires to be both known and understood.
"The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law." Deuteronomy 29:29

There are two areas of knowledge concerning God; the things which are "secret," which are known only to Him, and those things that are "revealed," which can be discovered only under certain conditions.

The Godhead is an example of the secret things, which belong to God. The Lord has never revealed how He can be three, yet only one at the same time. We may attempt illustrations, but none are satisfactory. Also, the fact that God has everlastingly existed without having a beginning is beyond our ability to comprehend.
The Lord placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and told them that they could freely eat the fruit of all the trees, except one particular tree. Man is spoken of as being a free-moral agent, able to do as he wills. However, the Word of God does not indicate the absolute freedom of man. Rather, man is limited, "Of all these things ye may freely eat, BUT."

In the original intention, the freedom of man as a free moral agent was circumscribed; he was not totally free, rather he was limited as he had been created to be dependent. You may go outside the circle of My will if you so choose, but if you do, such and such will take place. Therefore, man's freedom was relative rather than absolute.
Adam and Eve were under duress. If they went beyond the freedom given them, there was a resultant consequence. Also, the Lord has placed a limit on our knowledge of good. If we, with intellectual curiosity seek to go beyond the circle of Divine revelation, and attempt to press into things, which God has not revealed, we will get into trouble. 21 | P a g e

For instance, our pursuing the origin of sin- we may trace it back to Satan and find that there was pride in his heart. But what originated this pride? God must have created the capacity, or given consent that pride could develop in Satan's heart.

If we press this kind of rationale, we will find, before we become aware of it, that a question is raised concerning the holiness and integrity of God. We have placed the Lord in the position of being a defendant, with our being the prosecutor. This will result in infidelity, and in time, our rejection of God. All this may happen because we are pressing beyond the limits of that which belongs unto us.

In their curiosity, some Bible teachers have attempted to press beyond the limits of Divine restraint, and intrude into the things, which God has kept from man. For instance, how God deals with those who have never heard the Gospel. Many false and destructive doctrines have developed in this very way.
"And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die." Genesis 2:16-17

Some years ago, I visited a particular lady. I kept ringing the doorbell, as I knew she was always at home. Finally she answered and said, Please excuse me, as it took a long time for me to find the will of God as to whether I should open the door to you or not.

She said, I believe in being spiritual, and I do nothing without first asking God. I ask Him about all my personal affairs, and even about what I should wear. This goes beyond the intention of God, as He has given us latitude - of every tree ... you may freely eat, but...

We do not need to ask the Lord concerning which dress, suit, or shoes, we wear. There are many things in the area of our daily lives in which the Lord has given us the sense and wisdom to simply make our own choice, but there is a limit - But. Here, God established this limitation.

God can be adequately understood within the sphere of those things, which belong to us. We must learn to respect the silence of God, and when God does not wish to explain, we should be content.

God shares some of His secrets with some of His people, but not everything with everyone.

We tell certain secrets to our friends, but the older we become, the less we tell, because we have learned. God is very judicious, but He does share secrets with some.
"And the LORD said, shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do." Genesis 18:17 

The Lord shared with Abraham the fact that He was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
"The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him; and he will show them His covenant." Psalm 25:14

One year, I was speaking to a group of ministers in an old castle in the Pyrenees Mountain area of France and mentioned this verse. One minister said to me, Do you know that in the French Bible, this reads, "the intimate communion of the Lord is with them that fear Him."

This fear speaks of a reverential respect. Thus, our attainment of an intimate knowledge of God involves our relationship to Him. In Matthew 11:25, the attitude, which will bring us into this intimate knowledge, is given.
"At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes."
We must set aside our intellect and submit to the activity of the Holy Spirit in order to receive the understanding of His ways.
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

"The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you 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 to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power." Ephesians 1:17-19

To receive the knowledge of God involves our having esteem for, and placing great value upon the knowledge of God. For instance, in Proverbs 2:4,
"If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures."
Most all of the choicest things of God lie beneath the surface, and they must be searched out. These are not for the lukewarm, or the half-hearted, but for those who are earnest and have a heart appreciation of these things, and who demonstrate this by going after them with effort.

Some things are not obtainable without our contending to succeed, as in an obstacle course. For instance, Moses put the tent of the Tabernacle afar off.

"And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it outside the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord went out to the Tabernacle of the congregation, which was outside the camp." Exodus 33:7

Moses did not make it easy or convenient; rather, he put it "out-of-the-way" so it would take an effort to enter. Those who truly sought the Lord gladly made the effort. This was in fact a way of separating the wheat from the chaff, the earnest from the "indifferent." The Lord has a way of separating people.

One time I attended a service where the pastor understood the ways of God. When the altar service would begin, he would sit on the platform and do nothing for a considerable time, until many had left. Then he would begin to minister to those who were sincere in their seeking of the Lord, and, there were remarkable results.

Later, I asked him why he waited so long. He responded, I wait until I know that only those who are truly seeking the Lord are present. He knew that the earnest would stay, and the half-hearted would leave after a short time.

The Lord not only has a way of testing our earnestness, but He assesses us from the effort that we are willing to make. Only then will He begin to share the secrets of His presence.

As the political drama increases in Washington the Democrats continue to call for Mr. Trump's impeachment. This was planned from the beginning, as soon as he was elected. Michael Moore and others have been orchestrating this move since day one.

The Democrats have opposed and obstructed every move Trump has made since being elected. They have been literally foaming at the mouth in their hatred for him and all his supporters stand for.

Remember, the Democratic Party attempted to erase God from their platform at the 2012 convention. They support anything that is against Biblical Law. They refuse to enforce laws that are already on the books! Read 2 Peter 2...and compare "false prophets" to lying politicians!

America is deciding the path she is going to walk. Everything that is happening now is Yahweh's method of testing America and His church. Which path will we decide to follow? God's way and laws or our own way? The church is full of sin and is going to be exposed along with the political system.

Trump has created many of his own problems. He too is being judged by our righteous Father. He has been boastful and in the face of the political system. At his inauguration he literally declared war on the political class. He said he would "drain the swamp" and give the power back to the people.

Do you really believe any life long politician wanted to hear that? Change does not come easily or without a tremendous cost. Our entire system is currently under the righteous judgment of Yahweh. The system has become so corrupt that it cannot govern any longer. All it can do is obstruct and delay. Read the first five chapters of Isaiah and you will see a mirror image of our country today.

"And I will give children to be their princes, and babes to rule over them." Isaiah 3.4

Dwight "the rock" Johnson a Hollywood actor says he will run for president in 2020. America has been so dumbed down he probably has a good chance of winning! So many of our youth today have no clue about anything...they can't even tell you the name of the Vice President!

As I've written in this blog before, America is being warned and chastised for her sins. Yahweh is waiting patiently and watching:  The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come like a thief...2 Peter 3.9-10a

We are at a critical time in our nation...God is allowing us to choose the path we will walk. I believe the next election in 2020 will determine the path the nation will walk. Judgment is coming to the nation and the church. God is going to get out the broom and start sweeping.

Will Trump be impeached? It is very possible. How long can he and his administration continue to stand against the pressure coming from all directions? The Godless opposition will not rest until they achieve their objective. Ahhh, but the Almighty has a plan....

Vice President Pence is an unabashed confessing born again believer in Yeshua! Perhaps Yahweh's plan all along was to have Mr. Pence in the wings for a moment like this! If Trump is impeached and Pence steps in then Yahweh will be upping the ante, so to speak.

America's choice will become even clearer in the next election. No matter what occurs our nation is being chastised and things will become much worse before they become better. God is going to allow us to decide...He is testing our hearts.

Now is the time of preparation and drawing close to the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. We are all going to be tested in fire in the coming years. This is our time to get right. Wake up from your slumber!

I recently did a study on some words often used to describe sin or sinful actions. As you read through these think about our nation and churches. You'll see some amazing similarities. I also found it interesting that the words witchcraft and sorcery correspond to pharmakeia, the word we get Pharmacy from. This of course relates to the use of drugs in our society. We often forget that drugs were used in ancient times to put people into trances. 
Just read the words and relate them to scripture and our current times.

Uncleanness = Strong’s 167 Gr. akatharsia = impurity, a state of moral filthiness, especially in relation to sexual sin, many                                                   references in the N.T. epistles.

Lasciviousness = Strong’s 766 Gr. aselgeia = debauchery, sensuality, lewdness, wantonness, filthy. As used in epistles.

Filthiness = Strong’s 3436 Gr. Molymos = contamination, defilement, filthiness. As used in epistles.

Fornication = Strong’s 4202/4203 Gr. porneia/porneuo = sexual immorality, marital unfaithfulness, prostitution, adultery, a generic term for sexual sin of any kind. As used in epistles.

Witchcraft = Strong’s 5331 Gr. pharmakeia Gr. = witchcraft, magic, the use of spells and potions of magic, often involving drugs: sorceries. Also see: 5332 = pharmakeus = one who practices magical arts, magician:-sorcerers.

                                                5333 = pharmakos = one who practices magical arts: sorcerers

Emulations = Strong’s 2205 Gr. zelos = an attitude of emotion of deep, earnest concern: jealousy, envy, rage, morally corrupt zealous ill will. Galatians 5.20

Variance = Strong’s 2054 Gr. eris = quarrel, strife, dissention, discord…Galatians 5.20

Seditions = Strong’s 1370 Gr. dichostasia = division, dissention, divisions, sedition

Revellings = Strong’s 2970 Gr. komos = orgy, revelry, carousing, rioting

Eyeservice = Strong’s 3787 Gr. ophthalmodoulia = service performed to attract attention: eyeservice

The Promise - Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Gen 12.1-3


After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Gen 15.1-6


Disbelief - Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived….Gen 16.1-4


Promise to Hagar and Ishmael -  And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. Gen 16.10-12


Promise to Abraham, again - Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year. Gen 17.17-21


We see in the above verses that Abraham is called to be the Father of Israel. He is told he will have a son from his own seed - from his wife Sarah and him. Sarah is not convinced and provides her Egyptian slave to Abraham for bringing forth an heir. This union with Hagar the Egyptian slave woman and Abraham produces Ishmael. Abraham now thinks his heir is established.


Not so fast. God tells Abraham again that He is going to give Abraham an heir from Sarah and that this son will be the son of God’s promise and everlasting covenant. This is the beginning of the Jewish nation.


Notice that Abraham pleads with God for Ishmael to be the son of the covenant. God tells Abraham, No, it is going to be from the son I promised for you that comes from Sarah. So, even at the beginning, the Father of the Jewish nation was pleading with God for Ishmael. It is God who says no--it will be the son of the promise. God keeps His word--it is going to be Isaac, the son of promise, with whom the covenant is made--not Ishmael.

God tells Abraham that Ishmael will be the father of 12 princes and will be greatly blessed and multiplied. Thus Ishmael is the Father of the Arab nations. Through Isaac God says He will establish a covenant and possession of the land of Canaan.


And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. Gen 17.7-8


Ishmael’s Descendants - Ishmael’s descendants today include but are not limited to: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Egypt, Libya, Turkey (the Ottomans), Turkestan, Persia (Iran and Iraq), Syria, and Jordan.


Abraham’s son Isaac later had twins, Esau and Jacob. Esau was the oldest son and was to receive the birthright blessing of the first born. God told Rebekah, while the boys struggled in the womb, that the older would serve the younger, in effect telling her the youngest would receive the birthright blessing usually reserved for the older:


And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the Lord. And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. Gen 25.21-23


Isaac favored Esau and Rebekah favored Jacob as they grew up: Genesis 25.8


Esau despised his birthright and sold it to Jacob for a morsel of food. In the Middle East cultures a vow is a sacred pledge. Esau should never had made this vow. Gen 25.29-24


There were many issues between Esau and Jacob. Esau made his parents unhappy marrying the local women (Genesis 26.34-35; 27.46), Esau was a hunter and daddy’s boy, Jacob was a homeboy (tent dweller) and momma’s boy. The big issue was Esau marrying the local women and not someone of his family lineage.


Rebekah never forgot these things and at the time of blessing she took action for Jacob to receive it: Genesis 27


After Jacob and his mother deceived Isaac to get the blessing, Jacob was sent away to find a suitable wife. He was also sent away because Esau was angry and wanted to kill him. After Jacob left to his uncle’s home to find a wife, Esau married Ishmael’s daughter Mahalath thinking this would please his parents. Gen 28.8-9


Esau married into Ishmael’s lineage and so both Ishmael and Esau fathered tribes that to this day hate the Jews. Some of Esau’s descendants today are: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, and Jordan. His descendants also include the Edomites of Biblical times which today is Jordan. Esau is Edom…Gen 36.1, 8, 19.


Some other interesting descendants of Esau include Haman the Agagite from the book of Esther. He was of Amalekite lineage and got the king of Persia to pass a law allowing all Jews to be killed on a certain date. Esther the Queen went into the king and told him what Haman was up to. The king passed another law allowing the Jews to defend themselves and hung Haman on the gallows he had erected to kill Esther’s uncle Mordecai.


The Palestinian terror organization Hamas, in Gaza, is named after Haman. The word means hate. These are the descendants of Esau. Other notable descendants of Esau were the Herod family of Jesus’ time. This family included Herod Antipater, Herod the Great (He had all babies killed at the time of Jesus’ birth), Herod Antipas, and Herod Agrippa. The line of Herod was from the area known as Idumea which was where the Edomites were located. Remember Esau is Edom.


Nothing has changed in 4,000 years. The problems in the Middle East today are all related to this birthright issue. As told in the Bible, Abraham and his descendants are the people of promise and inheritors of the everlasting covenant. Because Abraham listened to his wife Sarah and did not wait for the promise, he bore a son with Sarah’s Egyptian slave Hagar. The Arab nations conceived from this union today still hate the Jews and want the birthright and the land which was promised to the Jews through Abraham.


Later Esau was denied his birthright (he sold it to Jacob) and this began a hatred that still exists today between Jews and Palestinians. Today this is the Hamas organization in the south (Gaza) and Hezbolla in the north (Lebanon). These two terror organizations are fully supported by both Egypt and Iran, not to mention other Arab countries.



In 70 AD the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans. Then in 132 AD the Bar Kokhba revolt took place in Jerusalem. This was an attempt by the Jews to form an independent state in Judea. The Romans put down the rebellion in 135 AD and dispersed the Jews and destroyed Jerusalem. This is what Wikipedia says:

A complete Roman legion with auxiliaries was annihilated. The new state knew only one year of peace. The Romans committed no fewer than twelve legions, amounting to one third to one half of the entire Roman army, to reconquer this now independent state. Being outnumbered and taking heavy casualties, the Romans refused to engage in an open battle and instead adopted a scorched earth policy which reduced and demoralized the Judean populace, slowly grinding away at the will of the Judeans to sustain the war.

Bar Kokhba took up refuge in the fortress of Betar. The Romans eventually captured it and killed all the defenders. According to Cassius Dio, 580,000 Jews were killed, 50 fortified towns and 985 villages razed. Yet so costly was the Roman victory that the Emperor Hadrian, when reporting to the Roman Senate, did not see fit to begin with the customary greeting "If you and your children are well, all is well. For I and the army are all in good health." He was the only Roman general known to have refused to celebrate his victory with a triumphal entrance into his capital.


In the aftermath of the war, Hadrian consolidated the older political units of Judaea, Galilee and Samaria into the new province of Syria Palaestina, which is commonly interpreted as an attempt to complete the disassociation with Judaea.


After this event there were always a mere handful of Jews in the area now called Palaestina until Jews began returning in earnest during the late 19th and early 20th century. This was the beginning of the Zionist Movement. Jews offered the Arab owners in Palestine, as it was now called, money for the land. The Arabs wanted nothing to do with this “worthless” land and gladly sold it to the stupid Jews.


As Jews immigrated in greater numbers and bought more land the Arabs became restless. The Jews began to turn swamps and barren land into productive money making farms or Kibbutzim. Conflicts began to occur between Jews and local Arab tribes. The Arabs attacked Jewish settlements in hope of discouraging their growth. The Jews kept coming. This conflict lasted until after World War Two at which time Britain took over Palestine.


In 1948 after years of struggle, the United Nations granted the Jews a national homeland in Palestine. The Jews agreed to the borders established by the U.N. but the Arabs did not. In May of 1948 five Arab nations including Jordan, Syria, and Egypt attacked the new born nation of Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel). The Arab nations broadcast over the radio to all Arabs living in Israel to leave their homes. They were told that after the Jews were destroyed they could come back and reclaim their homes. The Jews did not kick them out. They left on the hope Israel would lose and they could come back.


Israel won the war and the majority of those people who left never returned. Their descendants are those who are today called Palestinians. There never was a Palestinian nation. It was always a territory of other nations. Prior to Britain it was a territory of the Ottoman Turks for over 400 years. These refugees from the 1948 war which the Arabs lost where never integrated into the surrounding Arab nations. Those who choose to return to Israel at that time were allowed to participate in all phases of Israeli life.


The losing Arab nations choose to make these people refugees in order to keep the pressure on Israel and to keep the feud alive. This has over time worked to the advantage of the Arab nations and Palestinians. Israel is called Apartheid and referred to as “Occupiers” by the surrounding Arabs and now the world at large.


Never in history has a nation that won a war had to take in refugees who hate them. The refugees should have been absorbed by the surrounding nations and therefore allow Israel to exist as a Jewish homeland--as it was created to be. This situation has festered now for more than 65 years. Nothing has been solved.


The nations surrounding Israel will not rest until Israel and the Jews are wiped off the face of the earth. This is documented by the Arab’s own words. To this day Hamas will not recognize Israel’s right to exist. Neither do most of the other nations. Listen to what Egypt says to their own people in their own language. The same goes for Iran, and Saudi Arabia. None of these countries want Israel to exist. Their goal is complete destruction. They may say sweet words to the west, but listen to what they say among themselves for the real truth. How do you negotiate peace in this atmosphere? Would you negotiate with such enemies?


This issue goes back 4000 years to God’s promise to Abraham. If you don’t believe in the Bible you cannot understand the situation. If you don’t believe there is a God you can’t understand the situation. This is a birthright and a promise by God issued to Israel. It is irrevocable. It is everlasting. It cannot be changed or amended. It is the truth whether a person chooses to believe it or not. How will this issue ever be resolved?


The rest of the answer is also in the Bible. Read it and you will find out how it will be resolved!
