69 Years Ago Today, US President Harry Truman Officially Recognized The Regathered State Of Israel • Now The End Begins

This Government has been informed that a Jewish state has been proclaimed in Palestine, and recognition has been requested by the provisional Government thereof. The United States recognizes the provisional government as the de facto authority of the new State of Israel.

On May 14, 1948, U.S. President Harry Truman recognized the newly-declared State of Israel — over the vehement objections of the State Department, which was partial to the Arab states and lacked confidence that the Jewish state could defend itself

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matthew 24:32,33 (KJV)

EDITOR’S  NOTE: The regathering of the nation of Israel in 1948 is a partial fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy as found in Matthew 24, it will have its complete fulfillment at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble. As of the 69th anniversary today, we are officially one year away from the 70th anniversary of this regathering, will God again visit Israel? It is our contention that if more prophecy is to be fulfilled within our lifetime, that sometime between right now and Israel’s 70th anniversary could be the time period in which it might happen. 

President Harry S. Truman declared:

This Government has been informed that a Jewish state has been proclaimed in Palestine, and recognition has been requested by the provisional Government thereof.

The United States recognizes the provisional government as the de facto authority of the new State of Israel.

Truman’s brief telegram was an act of immense political courage.

For months, his leading foreign policy advisers, including Secretary of State George C. Marshall, had been urging him not to recognize Israel, but rather to consider a prolonged “trusteeship” of Palestine after the British Mandate had expired.

Recognition Of Israel On May 14, 1948 By Harry Truman:

In brazen tactics reminiscent of the “deep state” methods being used by the federal bureaucracy against President Donald Trump today, the State Department even tried to tie Truman’s hands. As one of his advisers, Clark Clifford, later recalled:

My fears about the State Department had crystallized after a bitter incident in March, when, without informing the President, it had permit­ted the American delegation to the UN to reverse its support for partition and switch to trusteeship for Palestine – a contradiction of a personal commitment the President had given the previous day to Chaim Weiz­mann, the Zionist leader who would later become the first President of Israel. Furious and depressed when he learned what had happened, Presi­dent Truman wrote on his calendar for March 19, 1948: “The State Dept. pulled the rug from under me today….The first I know about it is what I see in the papers! Isn’t that hell? I am now in the position of a liar and a double-crosser. I’ve never felt so low in my life. There are people on the third and fourth level of the State Dept. who have always wanted to cut my throat. They’ve succeeded in doing it.”

The State Deparment’s arrogance merely strengthened Truman’s resolve on the issue. Truman wrote to his sister on March 21, 1948 that the State Department’s “striped pants conspirators” had “balled up” the issue, but added that “it may work out anyway in spite of them.”

On May 12, Truman presided over a decisive meeting in the Oval Office. The State Department presented its case against Israel. Clifford was there, and spoke in favor of recognition. Secretary Marshall objected to his presence, adding: “If you follow Clifford’s advice and if I were to vote in the election, I would vote against you.”

Donald Trump Promises To Move Embassy From Tel Aviv To Jerusalem :

As a candidate, President Trump said he could “100% guarantee” that he would move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. When this move takes place, it will set off a firestorm across the Middle East that could dramatically advance the end time Bible prophecy timeline.

President Truman did not make his decision known until the fateful day itself. The president’s staff made clear to the State Department that if it opposed him, Truman was prepared to fight a political war against it. Finally, the bureaucrats backed down.

The diplomats at the United Nations were taken by surprise. Clifford notes their reaction in his memoir: “As The New York Times reported the next morn­ing, ‘the first reaction was that someone was making a terrible joke, and some diplomats broke into skeptical laughs.’”

AS THEIR 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF BEING REGATHERED APPROACHES, IS THE LORD PREPARING TO VISIT ISRAEL?

But reality soon set in. The United States had recognized Israel — and the Soviet Union did the same a few days later.

Since then, the State Department has generally retained an anti-Israel bias — partly because of the oil reserves controlled by Israel’s enemies, and partly because of the sheer number of Arab and Muslim states, which allows them to exert disproportionate power in many international institutions.

The left’s embrace of the Palestinian cause has also affected the political culture in Washington. The consensus in the foreign policy community is that moves such as relocating the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem would launch — indeed, almost justify — a “third intifada.”

But for Truman, the issue of recognizing Israel was fundamentally a moral one. And he was not going to let any bureaucrat, or any foreign threat, stand in his way. As he wrote to his brother on March 22, 1948: “I think the proper thing to do, and the thing I have been doing, is to do what I think is right and let them all go to hell.” source

Will the God of Abraham visit Israel at 70?

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

The Mary In the King James Bible Bears No Resemblance To The ‘Blessed Mother’ Of Roman Catholicism • Now The End Begins

 

If Mary was, as the Vatican asserts, “fashioned by the Holy Spirit” and then “kept free from all sin”, then the birth of Jesus is not so special after all. Mary kinda beats Jesus to the punch, wouldn’t you say? But then, stealing the glory from Jesus Christ is really what the Roman Catholic “Mary” was invented to do.
the-real-mary-in-the-king-james-bible-nteb

Catholics are taught to “pray to the Blessed Mother” for leading and guidance in their daily lives, yet incredibly the real-life Mary never advised anyone on anything. When she attempted, one time, to give her opinion, Jesus instantly rebuked her

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” Matthew 1:18 (KJV)

Almost 1,900 years after the birth of the biblical Mary, the Roman Catholic Church declared some startling and amazing things about her. Not the least of which was the blasphemous and heretical notion that she was born sinless.

“The Fathers of the Eastern tradition call the Mother of God “the All-Holy” (Panagia), and celebrate her as “free from any stain of sin, as though fashioned by the Holy Spirit and formed as a new creature”. By the grace of God Mary remained free of every personal sin her whole life long.” Catechism of the Catholic Church

This idea was unknown to any writer in the New Testament which clearly states that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” in the book of Romans. Yet the idea of a “sinless Mary” forms the basis of Catholicism. Why else do you think that when Catholics “pray the rosary”, they say 10 “Hail Marys” to every one “Our Father”?

If Mary was, as the Vatican asserts, “fashioned by the Holy Spirit” and then “kept free from all sin”, then the birth of Jesus is not so special after all. Mary kinda beats Jesus to the punch, wouldn’t you say? But then, stealing the glory from Jesus Christ is really what the Roman Catholic “Mary” was invented to do.

Things you were taught about Mary that are not supported in the Bible:

  • Mary was not sinless: After the birth of Jesus, Mary went to the Temple to make an atonement for her personal sin according to the Law of Moses. Sinless people don’t need to make sacrifices, Jesus never made one, He was one. Vatican teaching answers this by saying that Mary just made that unnecessary sacrifice because she “was humble”. Well, if she was sinless and pretended to have sin and make a phony sacrifice, that’s not humility, that’s a lie. And lying is a sin, so you do the math. “And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” Luke 2:22-24 (KJV)
  • Mary never consulted on anything ever: Catholics are taught to “pray to the Blessed Mother” for leading and guidance in their daily lives, yet incredibly the real-life Mary never advised anyone on anything. When she attempted, one time, to give her opinion, Jesus instantly rebuked her. “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.” John 2:1-4 (KJV)
  • Mary had no voice in the early Church: If Mary was indeed the miracle-working super saint that the Vatican claims she is, like all the apostles actually were, then the time for her to “show her stuff” would have been on the day of Pentecost, right? Think about it, the prophecies of Joel had started to come to pass, the apostles were having dreams, visions, signs, wonders and tongues…but where was Mary? She was with the other women, NOT “above the other women”, and simply one of the saints the Bible records as praying to the Lord. Please note that no one in the Church as it was being formed prayed to her, or even recorded that she even had anything to say. What a shocking contrast to the all-knowing, prayer-answering, floating apparition “Blessed Virgin” of the Catholic Church. “These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” Acts 1:14 (KJV)
  • Mary had other children: If you take away the perpetual virginity of Mary, then the bulk of all Catholic doctrine built around her collapses. And this is exactly what the King James Bible does so you won’t be confused about the matter. Not only that, Mark gives you the NAMES of the four half-brothers of Jesus! These are not “cousins” as the Vatican pathetically asserts, these are others brothers from the SAME mother. Mark also said there were sisters, so that makes a minimum of 6 kids born to Mary and Joseph during the time she was a “perpetual virgin” Hmm…“And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” Mark 6:2-4 (KJV)
  • Mary’s role as Jesus’ mother ends at the cross: In His final moments on the cross, Jesus makes a very anti-Catholic statement. He tells Mary that she is no longer His mother, as the soon-to-be-risen Saviour is “from everlasting” and needs no mother. Jesus feels so strongly about the transfer that it’s recorded with two of the very rare exclamation points in Scripture. Instead of “promoting” Mary to lead the guide the new Church, He lets us know she has no active role in the Church other than simply being a good role model for other women of like faith. “Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” John 19:25-27 (KJV)
  • Mary is never called the ‘mother of God’: The Roman Catholic “Hail Mary” prayer is loosely based on the biblical account of the angel Gabriel appearing to her, but with plenty of embellishment thrown in for good measure. She is NEVER called the “mother of God” one time ever, this is a complete invention of the Vatican. In fact, the Bible goes one step further with Gabriel not even referring to her as the “mother of Jesus”, but calls Him the Son of God. “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:35 (KJV)
  • Mary is not the woman in Revelation 12: The Vatican teaches that Mary is the woman in Revelation 12 with the “12 stars” around her head, but nothing could be further from the truth. The woman in Revelation 12 is the nation of Israel to whom the Saviour was born, and that “woman” flees” into the red rock city of Selah Petra to escape Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble. “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” Revelation 12:1,2 (KJV)

If you are a Roman Catholic reading this now (I did not say ‘Catholic christian’ because there is no such thing) as I was for 30 years, why don’t you use your brain and think for a moment? the Vatican makes these outrageous claims about Mary, but NONE of them are found in the Bible. Where are they found? In the writings of the Catholic Church 1,500 later.

why-is-mary-crying-perpetual-virgin-fourth-part-trinity

WHY IS MARY CRYING? CLICK TO FIND OUT NOW

This is why the Roman Catholic Church does not have the Bible as its sole authority, because the Bible is against what they teach as I have shown you above. The King James Bible actively contradicts official Vatican teaching in dozens and dozens of places regarding Mary.

Don’t believe the lies of the Catholic Church:

Did you know that the Catholic Church teaches that the very first apparition of Mary was while she was still alive? Incredible but true, that’s official Vatican teaching.

The real Mary in the Bible was a sweet and sanctified young lady who loved the LORD with all her heart, and accepted the awesome task given her. But she was born in the image of Adam and Eve, as we all were, and acknowledged Jesus as her Saviour. Sinless people have no need of a Saviour, just as well people have no need of a doctor.

“And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Luke 1:47 (KJV)

The real Mary in the Bible performed no miracles, there is no record of her advising anyone or anyone seeking her advice. Have you ever wondered about that? None of the astonishing things the Catholic Church attributes to Mary are never once found in the Bible. The real Mary in the Bible would be horrified if she knew what was being taught falsely about her.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV)

The real Mary in the Bible was a saved sinner who needed a Saviour just like anyone else who ever lives. Don’t pray to her, don’t ask her advice, worship Jesus instead.

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrews 9:28 (KJV)

As Their 70th Anniversary Of Being Regathered Approaches, Is The LORD Preparing To Visit Israel? • Now The End Begins

We believe that the blooming of the fig tree officially began when Israel was regathered back in their own land after nearly 2,000 years of dispersion. This was the first formal regathering but it will not be the last. The one that the Bible has in view ultimately is the final regathering of Israel at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble when Jesus returns to vanquish the Antichrist and his evil hordes at the Battle of Armageddon.

On May 14, 1948, two minutes after midnight, the nation of Israel was officially regathered according to Bible prophecy. The fig tree of Matthew 24 was blooming after two millennia of dormancy

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

On May 14, 1948, in Tel Aviv, Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion proclaims the State of Israel, establishing the first Jewish state in 2,000 years. In an afternoon ceremony at the Tel Aviv Art Museum, Ben-Gurion pronounced the words “We hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine, to be called Israel,” prompting applause and tears from the crowd gathered at the museum. Ben-Gurion became Israel’s first premier.

In Matthew 24, a chapter devoted almost exclusively to the Jews in the time of Jacob’s trouble, Jesus gives a really important time clue. He says that when we would see the “fig tree in bloom”, a reference to the nation of Israel, that that would be the official start of the end times, or last days mentioned throughout Bible prophecy.

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matthew 24:32, 33 (KJV)

We believe that the blooming of the fig tree officially began when Israel was regathered back in their own land after nearly 2,000 years of dispersion. This was the first formal regathering but it will not be the last. The one that the Bible has in view ultimately is the final regathering of Israel at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble when Jesus returns to vanquish the Antichrist and his evil hordes at the Battle of Armageddon.

THE BIBLE BELIEVERS GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING

When the fig tree bloomed again in 1948, is started a minimum 70 year time period that, when finished, will have included the great falling away of the Church, the end of the Church Age in the Rapture, and the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. As I write this article on the 23rd day of April, 2017, we are roughly 13 months away from the 70th anniversary of the regathering of Israel. 70 is a very important number in the Bible, and in Bible prophecy in particular.

We have already shown you that it is no coincidence of any kind that Donald Trump was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in office. Not only that, we also showed you the importance of Trump’s campaign promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and how that could possibly trigger the war mentioned in Psalm 83.

But before we continue, it’s important to remind ourselves first of the following:

  • THE JEWS WERE REGATHERED IN UNBELIEF: At the time, in 1948, newspaper headlines made many references and allusions to Old Testament scriptures about God regathering His chosen people, and for a brief period the people who were fresh off of Hitler’s Holocaust gave the God of Abraham the glory. But it didn’t last long. Today, hospitals in Israel perform late-term third trimester abortions, and Tel Aviv is considered the premier LGBTQP capital of the world, eclipsing that of San Francisco and Greenwich Village in New York City. The Boston Globe calls Tel Aviv “the gayest city on Earth“. Israel celebrates what God destroyed both Sodom and Gomorrah for, let that sink in for a moment.
  • THE JEWS STILL REJECT THEIR MESSIAH: In the book of Romans, Paul weeps over the lost condition of his Jewish brethren, and wishes he could somehow get them to see that Jesus is the promised Messiah of the Scriptures. In Israel today, there is a growing number of Messianic believers, but the overwhelming majority reject the claims of Jesus.
  • THE JEWS WILL FOLLOW THE ANTICHRIST AND BUILD HIM A TEMPLE: In 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, Paul shows us that after the Rapture of the Church, the Antichrist is revealed in what is called the “strong delusion”. Not only that, Jesus in Matthew 24 directs us to Daniel 9:27 (KJV) and shows us the Antichrist sitting in the rebuilt Third Jewish Temple.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE COMING THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE WILL SHOCK YOU TO YOUR CORE

All that now leads us to May 14, 2018, the 70th anniversary of regathered Israel:

Please note that this article is in no way setting a date for the Rapture of the Church, or a date for the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. But it is presented to show you some very real possibilities for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in the very near future.

The prophet Jeremiah in chapter 30 and verse 7 makes a reference to something he calls the “time of Jacob’s trouble”, which is the same thing Jesus mentions in Matthew 24 when He talks about the coming time of “great tribulation”.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)

But just one chapter before that, Jeremiah mentions something that immediately preceded that, a visitation from the Lord after 70 years. Historically this is talking about the Jews in Babylonian captivity, but is also a prophecy of the Jews in the time of Jacob’s trouble in the end times.

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

It is interesting to note that in the book of Revelation, Jesus says that in the time of Jacob’s trouble Israel will be like “Sodom and Egypt”. (Remember the Boston Globe article calling Tel Aviv the “gayest city on Earth”?)  They have turned so far away from the LORD that this is how God now views them.

“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Revelation 11:8 (KJV)

But Revelation also directs our attention to spiritual Babylon that has now trapped the Jews just like physical Babylon did in Jeremiah’s day.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)

So I ask you, those of you who are Bible believers and understand that there is much prophecy yet to be fulfilled, is it possible that sometime around the 70th anniversary of the regathering of the nation of Israel, could the LORD be planning to once again visit Israel and His chosen people the Jews?

two-witnesses-of-revelation-time-jacobs-trouble-now-end-begins-end-time-bible-prophecy-pretribulation-rapture

WHAT IS THE POINT OF PUTTING THE BODY OF CHRIST INTO THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE?

If so, then wouldn’t that of necessity place the Rapture of the Church before that visit? Yes, it would. The Church has no place in the time of JACOB’S trouble, it is Israel’s final refinement according to the Bible.

“Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” Amos 3:1,2 (KJV)

The 70th anniversary of regathered Israel is 13 months away, and there are only 3 possibilities for what is mentioned in this article. It is possible that 1). some of it could happen, 2). none of it could happen, or 3). all of it could happen.

Are YOU ready for what comes next?

Push To Rebuild Jerusalem Temple Has Earth-Shaking Implications

 

Push To Rebuild Jerusalem Temple Has Earth-Shaking Implications

BY WND.COM APRIL 20, 2017

There is probably not a more disputed parcel of real estate than the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

A portion of the land there is occupied by an Islamic mosque, yet there are developing plans to rebuild the prophesied third Jewish Temple.

That leaves the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a political situation that offers no easy way out.

One American pastor now is telling Christians they need to pay careful attention to what happens next.

During Passover, Jewish activists held a ritual sacrifice in view of the Temple Mount as part of a larger effort to encourage the rebuilding of the Temple. Attending the ceremony was Yehuda Glick, an American-born Knesset member of Netanyahu’s Likud Party. The ceremony was held outside the Hurva Synagogue in what was widely perceived as a prestigious location that gave the ritual a certain amount of legitimacy. One of the activists involved predicted it would only be “a few more years” before sacrifices were held on the Temple Mount itself.

But even attempts by Jewish activists to begin hosting sacrifices on or even near the Temple Mount have led to increased tensions with the Muslim community, and the Muslim authorities who govern the Temple Mount have forbidden any sacrifices on the Temple Mount itself.

Israeli police recently arrested five Jewish men who were attempting to pray on the Temple Mount, as well as 17 people in a separate incident who were trying to smuggle goats onto the site to offer a sacrifice.

Netanyahu cannot afford to antagonize religious Jews or the Orthodox parties, as they form an important part of his political coalition. And he’s already having a hard time keeping his coalition together, as the leaders of the ultra-Orthodox Israeli political parties have publicly announced their opposition to any unilateral attempt by the prime minister to dissolve the government.

At the same time, the nascent Sanhedrin, a group attempting to revive the ancient Jewish legal institution, is also attempting to promote a rebuilding effort.

In response to a conflict between Netanyahu and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the group invited Iran to rebuild relations with the Jewish state by endorsing a rebuilding of the Temple.

Netanyahu points out that Iranian leaders have vowed to wipe out the Jews. In response, Zarif reminded the Israeli leader it was Cyrus the Great, the founder of the Achaemenid Empire, who had helped to build the Second Temple.

Mark Biltz, author of “God’s Day Timer” and “Blood Moons” and a passionate advocate of renewing biblical Jewish traditions within Christian worship, says the political conflicts within Israel are standing in the way of reconstruction.

“The biggest problem for Israel in building the Temple is not needing Iran to somehow give permission or assistance but for the nation of Israel itself to make it happen,” he told WND. “It’s Israeli politics that stands in the way, for good or ill, depending on your position about whether we should see the Third Temple. It’s a matter of separation of synagogue and state. Do you really think the politicians want the ultra-Orthodox or a new Sanhedrin determining what laws all Israelis must follow?”

As Biltz explained, though many religious groups and some activists associated with the Jewish right are eager to build the Third Temple, there is passionate theological debate within the Jewish community itself about whether the Temple should be constructed.

“Within the Orthodox Jewish community, some hold that they must wait for their Messiah, whose name is the Branch, to build the Temple based on the verse in Zechariah 6:12-15, which says ‘He shall build the temple of the Lord,'” he said.

“Others say the situation now is similar to when the prophet Haggai complained about how some were content without a Temple. He argued they needed to get to work and rebuild the Temple that had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar. If you believe God wants the Temple rebuilt, why would you stand idly by and not be doing all you can to bring God’s presence back, especially if we really want true peace on earth?”

One group, the Temple Institute, has been actively pushing to create or acquire the elements needed to build the Third Temple. It re-created the holy altar, drew up architectural plans to actually build the Temple and even began raising the sacred red heifers needed for ceremonial purposes in Israel.

Biltz says Christians need to be closely following these developments. Though he cautions “of that day and hour no one knows,” the reconstruction of the Third Temple would be a critical sign the last days are actually at hand.

“In the Christian community many are waiting for the Temple to rebuilt as a sure sign of the last days about to be fulfilled,” he said. “One thing we know for sure is history keeps repeating itself. We don’t know the form yet. Whether it’s a full-blown Temple or just a prefab one that can be thrown together quickly, we will have to wait and see. It may not be anything more than an altar doing Passover sacrifices.

“But one thing is for sure. If the Temple is rebuilt and sacrifices are resumed, hold on to your shorts as the time is short!”

As The 70th Anniversary Of Regathered Israel Approaches, Will It Be A Time Of Prophetic Fulfillment?

 

The prophecies of both Jeremiah and Daniel are crucial in unlocking the mysteries of the book of Revelation. In both cases, God worked things out with the number 70, which brings us to today’s topic. Israel was officially regathered on May 14, 1948. On May 14, 2018, they will have been back in their own land for exactly 70 years. Is God getting ready to move again?

by Geoffrey Grider August 21, 2016

Jeremiah calls it the time of Jacob’s trouble. He calls it that because it has nothing to do with the Church of Jesus Christ, it is the final judgment on Israel.

time-of-jacobs-trouble

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

The prophet Daniel found himself and his people the Jews in Babylonian captivity. God had allowed the nation of Israel to be taken captive for their unfaithfulness. One day, while reading through the scrolls of the prophet Jeremiah, he had an amazing discovery. As it turns out, Jeremiah had already prophesied that this would take place for a 70 year period:

“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:” Daniel 9:2,3 (KJV)

Israel is God’s timepiece for Bible prophecy. Tick, tock…

Daniel was so moved and shaken by his discovery that he immediately set out to seek the Lord his God, and plead for mercy on Israel and the Jewish people. In the midst of his amazing prayer, he was visited by the angel Gabriel who presented him with another prophecy having to do with the number 70.

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” Daniel 9:24 (KJV)

This prophecy dealt with 70 “weeks of years” which turns out to be 490 years by the Hebrew calendar. The first 69 weeks of that prophecy have already transpired, but the last week – the final 7 years – has yet to take place. This last week is commonly known as the Great Tribulation, but Jeremiah has another name for it. He calls it the time of Jacob’s trouble. He calls it that because it has nothing to do with the Church of Jesus Christ, it is the final judgment on Israel.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)

The prophecies of both Jeremiah and Daniel are crucial in unlocking the mysteries of the book of Revelation. In both cases, God worked things out with the number 70, which brings us to today’s topic. Israel was officially regathered on May 14, 1948. On May 14, 2018, they will have been back in their own land for exactly 70 years.

Is God getting ready to move again?

No, I am not predicting any specific event will have on or around May 14, 2018. But what I am saying is that with how God has already moved with regards to Israel and the number 70, it is best to go into it with our spiritual eyes and ears wide open. The anniversary of Israel being regathered for 70 years may be a small thing in the eyes of the world, but God is the God of the small things.

“For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.” Zechariah 4:10 (KJV)

The Church will not be here for the time of Jacob’s trouble, Israel will be in the spotlight. The Rapture takes us out before all that. But how fitting would it be for God to have a major move of prophecy on the 70th anniversary of the miracle of the fulfillment of the regathering of the Jews? Israel being back in the land was fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matthew 24:32,33 (KJV)

Israel is God’s timepiece for Bible prophecy. Tick, tock…

Canada Says They Will Give Jail Time To People Convicted Of ‘Anti-Transgender’ Speech Crimes

“This enactment amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination,” a summary of the bill reads. “The enactment also amends the Criminal Code to extend the protection against hate propaganda set out in that Act to any section of the public that is distinguished by gender identity or expression and to clearly set out that evidence that an offence was motivated by bias, prejudice or hate based on gender identity or expression constitutes an aggravating circumstance that a court must take into consideration when it imposes a sentence.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced a bill that would criminalize anti-transgender speech, with violators receiving up to two years in prison

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Canadian Obama, Justin Trudeau, will now make his country Canada a prosecutor of anyone who dares to speak out against issues like transgender men in the little girl’s bathroom. If NTEB was published in Canada, we would have to spend the next two years in prison for our ‘crimes’ of exposing the demonic promotion of the LGBT Mafia’s agenda. Watch for Obama to attempt to pass the same type of legislation here in the US before his term is up.

The new bill, introduced May 17 on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, aims to amend the Canadian Criminal Code to expand the country’s “hate speech” prohibitions to include any public speech or communication that “promotes hatred” on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression.” It would achange the Canadian Human Rights Act to cover transgender people

Canadian Prime Minister Passes Transgender Protection Bill:

“As a society, we have taken many important steps toward recognizing and protecting the legal rights for the LGBTQ2 community — from enshrining equality rights in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to the passage of the Civil Marriage Act,” Trudeau said in a speech, adding, “There remains much to be done, though. Far too many people still face harassment, discrimination, and violence for being who they are.”

THE UN IS AN ENEMY IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. [Isa 59:4]

And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. [Isa 59:14]

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. [1Co 15:33]

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. [2Ti 3;13]

Last Friday, the UN Commission on the Status of Women voted on a resolution blaming “Israeli occupation” for the lack of advancement of Palestinian women in their own society. Stunningly, Israel was the only country singled out for any criticism by the UN Commission on Women, after two full weeks of meetings.

Yes, you read correctly – the only country out of the 193 recognized countries in the world. The resolution passed by 27 to 2, with 13 abstentions. No mention was made throughout the proceedings of the dozens of countries where the concept of advancement for women is simply non-existent, countries in which women are consistently mistreated and abused – such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, North Korea and Iran, to name just a few.

You may have already read about this story, but I’m pretty certain that you did not read through the more than 8,500 words of the resolution itself. It is truly a remarkable document. Remarkable, that is, in its twistedness and absurdity.

Take this gem, for example: “Gender-based violence continues to be a key protection concern for women in the State of Palestine, and the situation is particularly acute in the Gaza Strip. A 2011 survey showed that 51 per cent of women in Gaza had been victims of gender-based violence.”

Or this one: “Case studies indicate that economic hardship, following the 2014 conflict in Gaza, has driven families to marry off their daughters early in order to improve the economic situation of the family.”

In other words, the UN is blaming Israel for Palestinians who viciously beat up their wives and who marry off their daughters to improve their finances. The resolution also meanders off in directions that have nothing to do with Palestinian women’s issues.

For example, it mentions the stalled negotiations for a two-state solution, and the poor state of healthcare provided by the Palestinian Authority, all of which is Israel’s fault, obviously.

The UN’s bias against Israel has become an unrelenting vendetta. Like a mob of vindictive school bullies ganging up on the one kid that they all agree to hate, every vile country in the world has found that the UN is a perfect outlet for their unbridled antisemitism, and joined forces with each other to endlessly target the world’s only Jewish country.

Not a week goes by without the UN taking some action against Israel, or making some negative pronouncement about Israel – all ratified by majority votes in accordance with the strictest democratic guidelines, guidelines ironically not available in most of the countries that make up those anti-Israel majorities.

Last Friday’s outrage was followed closely by this week’s “let’s-all-gang-up-against-Israel” moment, when the UN Human Rights Council announced that it would be producing a database of all the Jewish businesses operating out of Judea and Samaria, so that their products could be blacklisted.

This UN crusade to undermine Israel at every turn under the guise of being a professionally run objective international body that strictly observes democratic protocols, reminds me of something in this week’s Torah portion.

After informing us that only animals which have split hooves and chew the cud are kosher, the Torah lists four animals that possess just one of these characteristics, which means they are not kosher, as there is no such thing as half-kosher. The best known of these four animals is the pig, which is not kosher “because it has a cloven hoof that is completely split, but does not chew the cud.”

It has always puzzled me why pig meat, of all the possible types of non-kosher meat, is so reviled in Jewish tradition. I think the answer lies with an interesting Midrash, which asks why the Roman Empire was often compared to a pig.

The Midrash answers with a fascinating observation about pigs. Unlike every other mammal of its size, the pig does not lie on top of its legs when it sleeps, but rather stretches its legs outwards so that everyone can see its feet.

It seems to want to declare, “See! I am a kosher animal! I have split hooves!” The Roman Empire is no different, says the Midrash, in that it pretends to be the bastion of justice and progress, but in reality this is a false identity, perpetuated to mask Rome’s violent nature and thorough dishonesty.

The United Nations is no different from ancient Rome. It is not a neutral organization. Its so-called democratic procedures mean absolutely nothing whatsoever when they are constantly used and abused by all kinds of murderous regimes and bigoted nations to perpetuate the lie that any vote condemning Israel was the result of a fair and transparent democratic process. Such claims are comparable to the pig thrusting out its split hooves to prove that it is kosher.

The revulsion felt for pigs in Jewish tradition makes perfect sense. Enemies we can identify – because they look like villains and act like villains – are an obvious threat and will be tackled for that reason. But enemies who are wolves in sheep’s clothing, who hide behind protestations of “human rights concerns” and the “advancement of women,” are possibly of greater danger to us than a knife-wielding murderer.

That’s because their pretense of being even-handed and fair, and their hollow justifications for Jew-hating and Israel-bashing, undoubtedly results in an increased number of knife-wielding murderers who feel entitled to wreak their bloodthirsty havoc at will.

 Yes, the UN, rather than promoting greater international harmony and peace, literally has blood on its hands. The revulsion we have for the UN is not because it is not kosher; it is because of its insistence that it is as kosher as can be. Nothing could be more disgusting than that.
