We reported today that Erdogan wants only the insignias that are pleasing to Islam to be placed on the right arm of all fighters. He is even dictated that American special forces are to wear on their arms Islamic symbols that resemble the mark of the beast we’ve been speaking about for decades.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that he wants them to wear (get this) the mark of Islam from ISIS or Al-Nusra or Boko Haram:

“We advise them (US troops) to wear badges of Daesh (ISIS) or (Al-Qaeda affiliate) Al-Nusra when they go to other parts of Syria and badges of Boko Haram when they go to Africa,” Cavusoglu said with angry sarcasm as reported by Al-Arabiya with AFP and the Associated Press. What we are reporting here is confirmed.

Erdogan of Turkey was upset that U.S. troops wore the YPG emblem and he got his way. In compliance, U.S. military commanders have ordered special operations troops in Syria to replace uniform patches which they were disguised with bearing the insignia of a controversial Kurdish rebel group known as the YPG.

It is amazing that the U.S. quickly complied to Turkey’s demands. “Wearing those YPG patches was unauthorized, and it was inappropriate and corrective action has been taken,” Army Col. Steve Warren, a Baghdad-based spokesman, told reporters Friday. “And we have communicated as much to our military partners and our military allies in the region.”

Turkey demands Al-Nusra Front emblem “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”

Boko Haram’s symbol “No God but Allah and Muhammad Is His Messenger” with the Quran and the two AK47 in place of the historic two crossed swords

So which of these emblems will the Americans wear? We shall see. But last year American soldiers fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq were actually already wearing the emblem of the Muslim infamous two crossed swords (see below) as USA Today reported. So this Muslim two-crossed sword might be what they will put on their right arm in Syria.

Who ever dreamt that it will come to this? Many laughed us off decades ago when we reported that someday Turkey will demand that such emblems with “Allah” the “crescent” or “Islam’s two crossed swords” or “No God but Allah And Muhammad Is His Messenger” or the combination thereof, be worn on the right shoulders.

These poorly written critiques attempting to debunk our prophetic analysis will end up in the trash bin of prophecy.

Where are these doubting Thomasses today?

Eight years ago lunatics watched and thought I was the lunatic:

Why is everything adding up just as we told you years ago? If the Almighty sends them a Bethlehemite, they take him for lunatic, but when the devil sends them ear tickling Creflo Dollars these they will believe. The West wants Islam’s leaks and garlic, they reject any manna from heaven. Wake up Americans. I plead to you. Wake up! The devil is after your nation.

LOVE AND ANSWERED PRAYER

crucify

“Until now you have asked naught in My Name. Ask, and you shall receive, in order that your joy might be complete.

Note: “Until now” denotes “the time” before Yeshua was glorified through His death and resurrection by way of the cross.

“These words I have spoken to you in figures of speech, but an hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I shall declare the Father plainly to you.

Note: Yeshua’s resurrection from the dead and ascension to His throne in heaven, plainly declare the power of Elohim, Yeshuah’s Father!

 loveof yeshua

 

In that day you shall ask in My Name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father on your behalf,  for the Father Himself does love you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from Elohim.  “I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.”  [John 16:24-28]

Note: The underlined phrases declares Yeshua’s oneness with Elohim, His Father that “believers’” prayer requests will be answered directly by Yeshua ha Massiach. However, this promise covers only those who have love relationship with the Father, through loving Yeshua and believing Yeshua’s Sonship; see italized and underlined phrases above. And this truth is explicitly explained in the following verses:

“And whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son.  “If you ask whatever in My Name, I shall do it.

If you love Me, you shall guard My commands [Joh 14:13-15]

Guarding Yeshua’s command establishes love relationship; having faith in Yeshua establishes answered prayer. This can be proven in real live events when Yeshua revealed Himself to Muslims:

A GREAT TRUE STORY(TESTIMONY) FROM FORMER MUSLIM LADY WHO ENCOUNTERED JESUS

ACCOUNTS MULTIPLY OF MUSLIMS WHO HAVE ENCOUNTERED YAHUSHUA (JESUS CHRIST) IN UNSUAL DREAMS

For at least ten years reports have proliferated of Muslims converted to Christianity through dreams.

 A California magazine recently published the results of a survey of over 600 ex-Muslims who now follow Jesus. “Although dreams appear to play a minor role in the conversions of Westerners, over a quarter of those interviewed [as former Muslims] emphatically confirmed that dreams and visions played a vital role in their conversion, and helped them in difficult times,” the survey said.

Others have found the percentage higher. Karel Sanders, a missionary in South Africa, reported that among African Muslims, “42 percent of the new believers come to Christ through visions, dreams, angelic appearances and hearing God’s voice.” According to Dawn’s Friday Fax, a website that focuses on missionary reports, Arabic-speaking moderators explain supernatural experiences such as dreams, visions and healings through prayer to Jesus. “This is a hot topic in our region. People from all over the Middle East call us, telling how they were healed through prayer in Jesus’ name,” they quote one missionary as saying. “Muslim listeners often call to tell us about dreams and visions of Jesus, wanting to know what that means for them.”

The same is expressed in “I Dared To Call Him Father,” a riveting book by a wealthy former Muslim Pakistani woman named Bilquis Sheikh who came to Christ through a series of mystical happenings — starting with the presence of evil, which she felt was connected to the recent slaying of a persecuted Christian.

“The strange prickly feeling grew inside me as I walked slowly along the graveled paths of my garden,” she wrote in a book that has just been re-released. “I stopped my walk and looked around. As I leaned over to grasp the tall green stems, something brushed past my head. I straightened in alarm. What was it? A mist-like cloud — a cold, damp unholy presence — had floated by. Of course there wasn’t anything out there. Was there? As if in answer, I felt a firm, very real and uncanny tap on my right hand.”

 This experience led to a series of dreams that — like so many we now hear — culminated in the conversion of this Muslim woman. Are such dreams more prevalent now — with the world situation as it is? Or have they always occurred?

We know that dreams can be important. We think of Abraham. We think of Joseph, the betrothed of Mary,  the mother of Jesus.

But they are also crucial in our own time and in the case of Sheikh, whose husband had been a general and Pakistan’s minister of interior, they formed an important part of her conversion — if not the important role. As she explains in this well-written book (which was first published in 1978), she had been brought up in a Muslim faith which believed that although Jesus was born of a Virgin, He was not God’s Son. Still, Sheikh felt moved to explore the Christian Bible — and that’s when it all began.

MUSLIM FAMILY SAYS JESUS APPEARED TO THEM

Now, having read and witnessed the love of God toward us, you might want  to know how to go about obtaining God’s mercy and forgiveness of all of your sins. It is very effective and simple:

Romans 10:9-12  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.   For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.   For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Go ahead, just do that, then find a biblical based church and get baptized by immersion.

Walking Into The Bible

2016-05-27-featured-2-1140x660

 

It’s the most-banned, most-debated, best-selling book of all time, and it’s about to have its own $1 billion museum in the most powerful and influential city in the world.

It’s inescapable.

It’s a force in everyone’s story.

It is a book, the poet says.

“It is ink on pages,” he continued. “It is tangible. It is physical. Hold it. Read it. Taste it. See it. It is flesh. It is human. It is otherworldly. It is strange. It is mystic. It is mysteriously powerful. It is inside-outing. It is upside-downing. It has turned the Earth on its head. It has shaped our world and yet it is a world often left unexplored. It is a world worth exploring. It is worth your time. What you discover just might be divine.”

The poet’s reading, as heard by thousands at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California last week, came as Pastor Rick Warren and others unveiled a “sneak preview” of the Museum of the Bible scheduled to open in Washington, D.C. in late 2017.

Designed to present the impact, history and narrative of Scripture, the 430,000-square-foot, high-tech Museum of the Bible is a non-sectarian, scholarly-focused, international museum that will illustrate how the Bible came to be, its impact on the world throughout the ages, and the story that is told in what is arguably history’s most significant piece of literature.

“The Bible has changed more lives than every other book put together,” Warren told the packed auditorium at his church. “It’s shaped our culture. We speak the language we speak right now — English — because of the King James Version of the Bible. It formed the English language. It transformed English from just being a dialect to a major language.”

Warren, a member of the museum’s board of directors, said the project’s funders, the owners of Hobby Lobby, have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the project so far and when completed it ultimately be a “billion-dollar project.”

“It’s going to be the best museum, I believe, in the United States; certainly the most technologically-advanced museum,” Warren said. “It’s going to be nestled among all the Smithsonian’s around the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C.”

“And you are going to hear about it tonight. We get a sneak preview. You are going to be blown away when you see all the preparation put into this, but the Bible deserves all this preparation. It is the book that has changed cultures and changed history. It is the book of books, and Kay and I are honored and privileged to be a part of the board of the Museum of the Bible. Tonight, we are going to hear from the founders and visionaries behind the museum.”

Gathered over a period of six years, the museum will house the Green Collection consisting of some 40,000 ancient biblical texts and artifacts—including one of the world’s largest private collections of Dead Sea Scrolls, the earliest-surviving New Testament texts in Jesus’ household language, the world’s oldest known Jewish prayer book and other antiquities dating from the first century B.C.

Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., just steps from the National Mall and U.S. Capitol, the museum will share the Bible’s story through a series of high-tech exhibits, immersive settings, and interactive experiences—designed for guests of all ages, walks of life, and faith backgrounds to engage with the Bible.

Once completed, people will enter the museum through 40-foot high, two-and-a-half ton bronze gates inscribed with the first chapter of Genesis as printed in the Gutenberg Bible.

“So when we say you are walking into the Bible, you really are walking into the Bible or through the Bible,” Museum of the Bible President Cary Summers said.

Located at 400 4th St. SW in a historic former refrigeration warehouse, the Museum of the Bible is set to join D.C.’s storied pantheon of cultural and research institutions in and around the National Mall. The museum will invite people to engage with the Bible via a scholarly and engaging presentation of the book that has shaped modern culture like no other.
Museums visitors will:

  • Explore the Bible’s impact on world culture and modern-day civilization.
  • Discover archaeological and historic treasures, like the Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient Torah scrolls, early New Testament texts, rare biblical manuscripts and first-edition Bibles.
  • Witness the preservation, translation and transmission of the Bible over time, from clay tablets revealing the earliest writings to today’s digital Bible.
  • ‘Drive Through History’ on a high-definition sensory ride offering dynamic encounters with great people, places and events that changed the world.
  • Enjoy a two-story, window-clad, rooftop gallery providing a 500-seat performing-arts theater, garden, restaurant and 500-seat ballroom overlooking the National Mall and U.S. Capitol.
  • Explore a grand lobby with a wall-to-wall, 200-foot LED ceiling that displays a moving canvas of visual possibilities.
  • Download their memories of the Bible to a real-time social media hub.

Other planned features include a state-of-the-art lecture hall, a lobby with a floor-to-ceiling interactive media wall, a performing arts theater, a children’s area, a restaurant featuring “The Foods of the Bible” and a rooftop biblical garden with panoramic views of Washington, D.C.

The museum will invite people to engage with the Bible through “four pillars — research, traveling exhibits, education and the museum itself.

Through the Museum of the Bible Scholars Initiative, museum officials plan to pioneer groundbreaking research and raise up the next generation of biblical scholars.

“We have engaged leading scholars from around the world to do research because we wanted scholarly credibility in all that we do because it really undergirds all of the other three pillars,” Hobby Lobby President Steve Green said. “We have over the years engaged over 100 professors at over 50 universities around the country and the world to do research on items.”

A one-story rooftop addition to a neighboring office complex will house the museum’s artifact research program, including a 20,000-square-foot reference library, research labs and an academic conference center. The museum has inked an alliance with the Israel Antiquities Authority to display a selection from the two million artifacts in Israel’s National Treasures in a dedicated top-floor gallery. Through this multi-year agreement, archaeological objects from the Israel Antiquities Authority will be exhibited at the museum. The Museum of the Bible is also dedicated to the excavation of archaeological sites in Israel and is currently beginning an archeological dig at Tel-Shimron, one of the largest and most historically significant sites in Israel.

“What gets me excited is to think that the Dead Sea Scrolls were preserved by God until he was ready for them to be discovered,” Green said. “Now, I wonder what he has left for us to discover.”

Reaching more than half a million people to date, the museum’s exhibits have brought the story of the Bible throughout the United States and to The Vatican, Jerusalem, Israel, Havana, Cuba, Buenos Aires and Argentina. The museum’s first traveling exhibit, Passages, featured about 400 top-tier items from the Museum Collection.

“Many will be able to come see this museum in D.C., but there are many that won’t so it’s a way for us to take the story of this book out to them,” Green said.

The museum consists of eight floors, including two basement levels and two new floors being added onto the existing rooftop. The central exhibit floors include the Impact, Narrative of the Bible and History, long-term international libraries; and long-term international museum galleries.

The Impact Floor exhibits will express the depth of the Bible’s immense influence – not only on the world’s cultures and many aspects of civilization, but also on the lives of individuals. The floor will include a special “fly board” theater enabling guests to virtually fly overseas, through paintings, and into key monuments and buildings, such as the U.S. Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial, to learn about the Bible’s presence in Washington, D.C.

Green said many people “walking the streets … know nothing about the Bible.”

“What do you do and where do you start with a person who knows nothing? (The Narrative of the Bible) floor has a goal to say: ‘Here is what the basic story of this book is from Genesis to Revelation.’ I’ll use the example of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (producers of The Bible series). They had 13 hours on the History Channel to tell the Bible’s story. We have a floor of the museum to tell the Bible’s story.”

The Narrative of the Bible floor will encompass 50,000 square feet and be dedicated to telling the stories of the Bible. The floor will include three primary areas, including The Jewish Bible, an immersive walk-through of the narrative of the Hebrew scriptures, tracing themes of family and home; The World of Jesus of Nazareth that will enable guests to visit a first-century village with docents portraying various individuals in that society; and The New Testament Theater that will provide a four-dimensional experience of the New Testament as discovered by Luke.

Finally, The History Floor will feature many of the greatest discoveries associated with the biblical text, including some of the earliest known writings, which date to the time traditionally associated with Abraham, Dead Sea Scroll fragments, some of the earliest known New Testament writings, numerous historical manuscripts, and first-edition Bibles.

“Our goal is when you get in, and are just curious, and when you see all this level of excellence that we’re building into it, then we think the Holy Spirit takes charge, and that person will say, ‘Look, while we’re here, let’s give it a shot. Let’s look.’”

As part of its education component, the museum is developing a high school Bible curriculum for students around the world. This four-year curriculum starts with the ninth grade and approaches the Bible as a text that is central to human civilization. Illuminating the Bible’s impact, narrative and history, the curriculum uses augmented reality (AR) to enable students to experience 3D objects in a much more immersive way.

“So why are we doing this museum? We want people to engage in the Bible. We want the Bible to be the center of conversations throughout the world,” Summers said. “But how do we do that? We want people to touch God’s Word and we want God to touch them. That’s what this project is all about.”

Walking Into The Bible

The Discovery of the Ark of the Covenant

New book by Rebecca Tourniaire released Oct 2014. – “King of the Ark”.

“King of the Ark” is essential reading to anyone who wants to understand what this discovery means to us and what God is trying to tell us through it.

“For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people…” Hebrews 9:19

Hebrews 9:19 says that Moses sprinkled blood and water above the book of the law in order to confirm the old covenant at Sinai. This was a type of what Christ did when He confirmed the new covenant, which He did on the cross. So just as Moses sprinkled animal blood, and water above the book of the law in the type, Christ had to sprinkle His blood and water above the tables of the law in the antitype.

The following is the account of late, amateur archaeologist Ron Wyatt and his discovery of that very thing.

In August of 1978, Ron Wyatt was walking along Gordon’s Calvary Escarpment in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, talking with a local authority about Roman antiquities. Without warning, Ron’s left hand pointed to a site there and his mouth said, “That’s Jeremiah’s Grotto and the Ark of the Covenant is in there.”
Even though these words had come from his own mouth and his own hand had pointed, he had not consciously said or done these things. The man with him, quite out of character, also reacted strangely. He said, “That’s wonderful! We want you to excavate, and we’ll grant you your permits, put you up in a place to stay and even furnish your meals!” Ron Wyatt knew that this was a supernatural event but he also knew that not all supernatural events originate from God (Revelation 16:14).

So he returned home to the US, and began to research as to whether or not the Ark could be in that area. He discovered that 2Chronicles 35:3 is the last reference to the Ark of the Covenant, and verse 19 tells us that this was in the year 621 BC, just 35 years before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple by Nebuchadnezzar. It says that the Ark was in the temple at that time. When the Babylonian army besieged Jerusalem, they built a siege wall around the city, not allowing anyone or anything in or out of the city.

Therefore, the Ark of the Covenant most probably remained within the Babylonian siege wall. As it was not captured by Nebuchadnezzar and taken to Babylon, we must assume that it was hidden underground. This matched perfectly with the area that Ron Wyatt had pointed to, it would have been within the Babylonian siege wall, in an underground chamber. Ron Wyatt and his two sons dug several times at that site, uncovering a wealth of information. They began by digging straight down, at the base of a cliff face, a cliff face known to many as Golgotha. In the 1800’s General Gordon recognized that the site matched the biblical description of Calvary, the site of the crucifixion of Christ. The Bible describes a tomb hewn out of rock, in a garden nearby, it was the tomb of a rich man who donated it to Jesus (Matt. 27:57-60). In the vicinity is just that, and the tomb has been hurriedly extended, suggesting that the person that lay in it, was not the person it was designed for.

Satanic Temple Of Los Angeles Plans To Cover City Of Lancaster In A Pentagram On 6/6/16

Satanic Temple Of Los Angeles Plans To Cover City Of Lancaster In A Pentagram On 6/6/16

The Pentagram is a star with five points. Using GPS technology we will place the five points of the star so that the Pentagram will encompass your entire city. When all of the points are in place, the Pentagram is completed. Drawing this symbol around your city represents a solemn promise from us, the Satanic Temple of Los Angeles. We will stand with the good people of the City of Lancaster and struggle for our constitutional right to individual liberty, freedom of expression and the separation of church and state in your community.

June is a time of celebration. Graduations take place. Father’s Day is observed. And summer officially begins.

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” 2 Thessalonians 2:9 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The LA WEEKLY reports that the Satanic Temple plans a pentagram ceremony on this coming June 6th – 6/6/16 – over the city of Lancaster just north of LA. The digital magazine thinks it’s all fun and games but nothing could be further from the truth. The tide of darkness in this nation is rising almost faster than you can track it. The world is being prepared for the arrival of Antichrist.

It’s also when the Satanic Temple of Los Angeles has scheduled festivities for a revered day in the diabolic community — 6/6/16. The group, which has 12 members, says it’s heading to Lancaster on June 6 to take part in a “satanic ritual,” according to a statement. The schedule is secret, but the appearances will be designed to raise awareness of the religion, organizer Thuc Nguyen told us.

Co-organizers also include William Morrison and Ali Kellogg, Nguyen said. Members of the sect also will be in Lancaster to support local Steve Hill, billed as the first Satanic Temple member to run for public office around these parts. He’s vying for a state Senate seat.

“We will be hitting five different points around the city, performing various rituals,” Nguyen said. “When we’re finished it will all connect together for the magic hour around sundown.”

A statement from the temple explains the fun in more detail:

THE PENTAGRAM IS A STAR WITH FIVE POINTS. USING GPS TECHNOLOGY WE WILL PLACE THE FIVE POINTS OF THE STAR SO THAT THE PENTAGRAM WILL ENCOMPASS YOUR ENTIRE CITY. WHEN ALL OF THE POINTS ARE IN PLACE, THE PENTAGRAM IS COMPLETED. DRAWING THIS SYMBOL AROUND YOUR CITY REPRESENTS A SOLEMN PROMISE FROM US, THE SATANIC TEMPLE OF LOS ANGELES. WE WILL STAND WITH THE GOOD PEOPLE OF THE CITY OF LANCASTER AND STRUGGLE FOR OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE IN YOUR COMMUNITY.

Members also plan to deliver their Bible, so to speak, The Seven Tenets, to Lancaster city leaders. Or at least they’ll try to, Nguyen said.

This sect, with roots at Harvard and Cambridge, is decidedly intellectual. Animals are respected; people, even more so.

The group once had a barbecue where a Trump piñata was bashed, Nguyen said. That’s downright civil and just.

“We stand up for human rights and civil rights,” she said. “We get together on a social and political level.” source

The Biblical Indictment Of America

The Biblical Indictment Of America

america2may242016

By Bill Salus/Prophecy Depot May 24, 2016

Share this article:

World history confirms what the Bible boldly declares: The establishment and future of a city, territory, nation or empire, is determined by the Lord. Concerning the creation of a nation, we are told in Acts 17:26,

“And He (God) has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.”

The prophet Jeremiah explains how the future of a nation is determined.

“The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.” (Jer. 18:7-8)

“And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it.” (Jer. 18:9-10)

This article takes a look at the epic tales of two infamous cities, Nineveh and Jerusalem. These comparisons are made to determine which one of these locations best characterizes America’s current spiritual condition.

If such a historical comparison can be applied now, then the relevant question is: Should Americans find hope in Jeremiah 18:7-8, with the story of Nineveh at the time of Jonah, or feel despair in the story of Jeremiah 18:9-10, which describes Jerusalem at the time of the Babylonian conquest? To determine the answer, I propose the examination of two principles that I call “The Nineveh Principle” and “The Jerusalem Principle”.

THE NINEVEH PRINCIPLE

 “I think in many ways America is like Nineveh. The wickedness of Nineveh was so great that God effectively said it was recognized up in heaven – ‘the sin of Nineveh has come before me’ – and I believe America is at such a state.” (Senior Calvary Chapel Pastor and Evangelist Greg Laurie.)

The Nineveh Principle has its origin in the 8th century BC before Jeremiah 18:7-10 was written. It is rooted in 2 Chronicles 7:14;

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Although these verses primarily dealt with the Lord’s response to King Solomon’s petition for the protection of the nation of Israel around 957 BC, they apparently also laid the groundwork for the Lord’s treatment toward other nations. The Assyrian city of Nineveh at the time of Jonah about 760 BC evidences this.  Nineveh, the capital city of the Assyrian empire, was ultimately destroyed around 612 BC; however the empire had become exceedingly evil long before it came to its end.

At the height of its wickedness, the Lord sent Jonah, a prophet, to warn of Nineveh’s fast approaching destruction.

“And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”” (Jonah 3:4)

Jonah’s warning was well received by the king and the people of Nineveh. They took it upon themselves to turn from their evil ways and Nineveh received a stay of execution.

“Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” (Jonah 3:10)

Although it can be argued that the Assyrians at the time were not classified as “My people,” the fact that they repented and turned from their evil ways changed their spiritual standing with the Lord.

With the historical precedents of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and Jonah 3:10 already in place, Jeremiah 18:7-8 reinforces this Nineveh Principle: if an evil people repent and turn from their wicked ways, the Lord will relent from bringing disaster upon them.

THE JERUSALEM PRINCIPLE

In sharp contrast to the Nineveh Principle, is the Jerusalem Principle. The Jerusalem Principle applies when a nation reaches a point of no return and the Lord determines that its destruction will not be postponed. This happened to the city of Jerusalem and the Southern Kingdom of Judah about 2700 years ago during the time of the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah. Three times Jeremiah was told to stop praying for the people of Judah.

 

“Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you. Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?” (Jer. 7:16)

 

“So do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear them in the time that they cry out to Me because of their trouble.” (Jer. 11:14)

 

“Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for this people, for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I will not accept them. But I will consume them by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.”” (Jer. 14:11-12)

 

After Jeremiah received his instructions to quit praying for the people of Judah, he forewarned them of their impending judgment. The people were captured and transported into Babylonian captivity where they remained for seventy years. Their homeland sat desolated during that period. (5)

 

In His foreknowledge the Lord knew that Judah would not have a Nineveh or 2 Chronicles 7:14 moment. Jeremiah’s intercessory prayers on behalf of Judah would have no effect on the Lord’s decision and he was told to cease praying for the people. The Lord explained why:

 

“Therefore you (Jeremiah) shall speak all these words to them, (in Judah) but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you.” (Jer. 7:27)

 

In essence, Jeremiah was informed that the people of Judah would not respond to his warnings in the similar way that the people of Nineveh did to Jonah’s forewarnings. As per the provision of forgiveness given in Jeremiah 18:7-8, if Judah would have repented, like Nineveh did, then the Lord would certainly have relented from judgment.

 

However, due to their evildoings and disobedience the Lord implemented the provision of judgment in Jeremiah 18:9-10, which was ultimately executed through the Babylonian conquest.

 

The people of Judah forsook their God Jehovah and became idolatrous. Jeremiah 19:4-9 provides the indictment of; and verdict for, Judah. These verses paint a graphic picture of despair and they are summarized below.

 

The INDICTMENT of JUDAH (Jeremiah 19:4-5)

 

* The people forsook the Lord and alienated Him from Judah.

* They worshipped false gods instead.

* They sacrificed the innocent blood of their children to the false god Baal.

* Child sacrifice appalled the Lord.

 

The VERDICT of JUDAH (Jeremiah 19:6-9)

 

A judgment in the form of a slaughter would come as sequenced below.

* The counselors of Judah would provide foolish counsel.

* The people of Judah would be killed by the swords of their enemies.

* Their corpses would be eaten by the vultures and carnivorous animals.

* The land would be desolated and contaminated with plagues.

* The survivors would become cannibals in order to survive.

* They would even eat their own sons and daughters due to their despair.

 

It is important to note that the Lord told Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:22, 28 and Noah and his three sons in Genesis 9:1, 7 to be fruitful and multiply upon the earth. The goal was to populate the earth with godly offspring. Contrary to the Lord’s command, the people of Judah were murdering and ultimately reduced to eating their children!

 

The Jerusalem Principle depicts what has historically happened when judgment and destruction occurs to an evil people who forsake the Lord.

 

AMERICA’S INDICTMENT

 

“We have taken God out of the public debate…I want to put Him back in.” Evangelist Franklin Graham. (6)

 

America has crossed every forbidden biblical boundary and in so doing has forsaken God. Throughout history nations and empires have been judged and destroyed for transgressing these biblically defined moral and spiritual boundaries! Boundaries such as:

 

* SEXUAL PERVERSION, like that of Sodom and Gomorrah at the time of Abraham around 2000 BC.

 

* IDOL WORSHIP, which in its worst conditions led to child sacrifice, which resulted in the destruction of the Northern Kingdom of Israel in 722 BC and the Southern Kingdom of Judah in 586 BC.

 

* WICKEDNESS AND MORAL DECADENCE, which caused the ultimate destruction of the Assyrian empire about 612 BC by the Babylonians and Medes.

 

* ANTI-SEMITISM, which led to the destruction of the Egyptian army at the time of Moses about 3500 BC. The treatment of Israel by a nation is reciprocated upon that nation according to Genesis 12:3. This policy pertains to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants, the Jews today. Blessings are in store for those who treat Israel favorably, but troubles are guaranteed to them that curse Israel.

 

In every instance the destructions caused unbearable sufferings and hardships to everyone, including believers in God and unbelievers that did not heed the prophetic warnings given in advance by the Hebrew prophets.

 

Daniel 5:24-28 – MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; Your kingdom has been divided). (June 26, 2015 is when the Supreme Court approved same sex marriages).

 

AMERICA IS IN THE DANGER ZONE

 

Over the past fifty years, America has transgressed over all of these dangerous boundaries. This is attested to by the Supreme Court decisions listed below.

 

* 1962 – Engel v. Vitale: the removal of Prayer in public schools by the Supreme Court.

 

* 1963 – Abington School District v. Schempp: the removal of Bible reading in public schools by the Supreme Court.

 

* 1973 – Roe v. Wade: legalized abortions by the Supreme Court. Since then, America has performed over 58 million abortions. Presently about 1 million abortions occur every year in America. This law means that about 1 million children annually will not be able to grow up, populate the earth and potentially become Godly offspring.

 

* 1980 – Stone v. Graham: in this case the Supreme Court ruled that a Kentucky statute was unconstitutional. The statute in question required the posting of a copy of the Ten Commandments on the wall of each public classroom in the state. The Court ruled that because they were being placed in public classrooms they were in violation of the First Amendment.

 

* 2003 – Lawrence v. Texas: This was the landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court that struck down the sodomy law in Texas, which by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in 13 other states.

 

* 2013 – United States v. Windsor: the case that the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA stated that one man should be married to one woman. DOMA was biblically supported according to Genesis 2:24, which says; “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Marriage is the ordained relationship through which a man and woman can become fruitful and multiply the earth with godly children.

 

* 2015 – Obergefell v. Hodges: the Supreme Court case that ruled in favor of Same Sex Marriages, which is unbiblical according to Romans 1:27 and elsewhere. Same sex couples are unable to procreate naturally. Therefore, it is humanly impossible for them to be fruitful and populate the earth with godly kids.

 

* 2015 – The present White House Administration has turned its back on Israel. As an example, Obama believes the Iran JCPOA nuclear deal is good, but Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu believes it’s the worst deal imaginable. A recent poll conducted by the “Panels Politics in Tel Aviv” confirmed the concerns that Israelis have about U.S. President Barrack Obama. The poll overwhelmingly rated him as the worst president for Israel in the last 30 years.

 

The Lord has provided ample warnings to Americans that the country is headed for destruction. These forewarnings have come in the forms of remedial judgments, prophetic voices, and ultimately by giving them the ungodly leaders they deserve. For instance, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama is the most pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, and anti-Israel president in America’s history!

 

AMERICA’S VERDICT

 

Which of these two cities does America most resemble today, forgiven Nineveh or judged Jerusalem?

 

Most would agree that once upon a time the Lord planted, built up and blessed this nation. This would connect the USA with Jeremiah 18:9, which says, “And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it.”

 

It appears safe to also suggest that from the Supreme Court decisions provided above, that America has, as Franklin Graham stated, “Taken God out of the public debate.” Thus, if the Lord’s voice is not even in the public debate, then how can we be obeying the Lord’s say-so in the important matters of this country?

 

If we are not obeying the Lord’s commands then we are doing evil in His sight. This would connect the USA with Jeremiah 18:10a, which states, “if it (a nation) does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then…”

 

Then what? “Then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it?” (Jer. 18:10b).

Let’s substitute America for Jerusalem and Judah in Jeremiah 7:16 to see if the shoe fits.

 

“Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you. Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?” (Jer. 7:16)

 

This verse is paraphrased below for potential American application.

 

“Therefore do not pray for Americans, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you. Do you not see the forbidden biblical boundaries their Supreme Court has crossed over in the city of Washington D.C., the sale of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, and the LGBT Gay Pride Parades in the streets of San Francisco and San Diego?”

 

WILL AMERICA HAVE A NINEVEH OR JERUSALEM EXPERIENCE?

 

Is it possible that the historical example of Nineveh could be repeated in America? If indeed America is headed for a disaster, could America receive a similar pardon from the Lord? The answer is yes, but the Lord does not issue “get out of jail free” cards like in the game of Monopoly. Americans and their leaders must sincerely emulate the actions of Nineveh in order for the Lord to relent from destroying the nation.

 

I’m not saying that Americans should stop praying for their country, nor am I suggesting that Americans will become so desperate that they will someday eat their sons and daughters. In fact, Ezekiel says that was a one-time episode for Judah that wouldn’t be repeated.

 

“And I will do among you (Jerusalem) what I have never done, and the like of which I will never do again, because of all your abominations. Therefore, fathers shall eat their sons in your midst, and sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments among you, and all of you who remain I will scatter to all the winds.” (Ezekiel 5:9-10)

 

What I am asking Americans to consider is does America have a national repentance forthcoming in the near future? If the answer is yes, then America will most resemble forgiven Nineveh and Jeremiah 18:7-8. If the answer is no, then… Then what? Then, at the very least, the Lord will no longer bless this nation and America’s greatness will never return! Only God, who knows the end from the beginning, knows America’s final verdict!

 

“Remember the former things of old, 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, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure.'” (Isaiah 46:9-10)

 

THE NOW PROPHECIES book by Bill Salus devotes three entire chapters to the important topic of America’s prophetic future. It also explores the ancient prophecies that could happen NOW, at this present time. Bill’s site is found at Prophecy Depot

 

MUSLIM NATIONS CALL TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL WHILE ISRAEL ENTERTAINS THEM USHERING CLOSER THE ENDS OF DAYS

Every day something pops up bringing us closer to the end. Now the Jerusalem Post is reporting the Arab Muslims want to divide Israel and create a Palestinian state. I also find many many claiming Christians who hate Israel (from Catholic and Orthodox) and I find many claiming Christians who also hate Rome (mainly from Evangelicals and Calvinists).

At times I wonder why the Muslim behaves like some of these Catholic and Orthodox, he hates Israel, and he also behaves like some of these Evangelical, Messianic and Calvinist crowds and he hates Rome. What I find most of the time are half-breeds between Muslim and Christian and they all say that they love Christ even including the Muslim who says he loves Jesus and Mary. Perhaps some of these would agree to what is on the news these days:

“Moderate Sunni Arab governments in the region have communicated to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu their willingness to engage in negotiations with Israel over possible changes to the Saudi peace initiative so that it may serve as the agreed-upon basis of renewed talks with the Palestinians, Channel 10 is reporting on Friday.”

“Arab regimes led by Egypt and the wealthy Gulf sheikhdoms have signaled their desire to publicly change their posture toward Israel, according to Channel 10.”

Officials in Arab capitals are now awaiting Netanyahu’s response to their offer of substantive discussions on the Saudi initiative so as to make it more palatable for Israel.

“One of the questioners asked him in Arabic about the 2002 Saudi Initiative, otherwise known as the Arab Peace Plan, which calls for a two-state solution on the pre-1967 lines with a just settlement for Palestinian refugees. In exchange the Arab world would offer Israel normalized relations.”

This means “dividing the land for gain” as predicted in Joel three in the Bible…
