CHRISLAM UPDATE: Pope Francis To Visit Egypt In Bid To ‘Pave The Way To Tolerance And Inter-Faith Relations’ • Now The End Begins

In Tuesday’s message, Francis said he hoped the trip could bring “fraternity and reconciliation to all children of Abraham, particularly in the Islamic world, in which Egypt occupies a primary position” and “offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world”.

Pope Francis hopes to mend ties with Muslims on his trip to Egypt on Friday but faces criticism from church conservatives for meeting Islamic religious leaders after a spate of deadly attacks against Christians.

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: In an official video released by the Catholic EWTN channel, the Pope’s visit to Egypt is being billed as a “message of reconciliation from an ambassador of peace”. EWTN goes on to say that Pope Francis “goes to Egypt to pave the way to tolerance and inter-faith relations” in this Muslim majority nation. In a word, it’s Chrislam. In another word, it’s the One World Religion of Antichrist. 

In a video message to the people of Egypt on Tuesday, Francis said the world had been “torn by blind violence, which has also afflicted the heart of the your dear land” and said he hoped his trip could help peace and inter-religious dialogue.

Security is a primary concern less than three weeks after 45 people were killed in attacks on Coptic Christian churches in Alexandria and Tanta, claimed by Islamic State, on Palm Sunday. But Francis has insisted on using an ordinary car during his 27 hours in Cairo, continuing his practice of shunning armored limousines in order to be closer to people.

Chrislam is brought to you via a joint effort between Rick Warren and Pope Francis:

The sheer unmitigated gall and audacity of Emergent Church heretic Rick Warren to claim to be speaking for Christians while he calls Pope Francis “our pope”. Christians don’t have a Pope, Catholics do. But when your mission is to merge the Laodicean Church with Islam, you need a “pope” somewhere there in the witches brew end times mix. 

Francis will meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi; Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, the world’s most influential center of Sunni Islamic theology and learning; and Pope Tawadros II, head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, who barely escaped the Alexandria bombing. Sisi declared a three-month state of emergency after the attacks.

A main reason for the trip is to try to strengthen relations with the 1,000-year-old Azhar center that were cut by the Muslim side in 2011 over what it said were repeated insults of Islam by Francis’s predecessor, Pope Benedict.

Ties with the center were restored last year after Tayeb visited the Vatican. Tayeb, widely seen as one of the most moderate senior clerics in Egypt, has repeatedly condemned Islamic State and its practice of declaring others as apostates and infidels as a pretext for waging violent jihad.

Pope Francis Video Message to Egypt April 25th – 2017

The Vatican says that Francis, who denounces the idea of violence in God’s name, is convinced that Christian-Muslim dialogue is more important now than ever.

Papal aides say a moderate like Tayeb would be an important ally in condemning radical Islam.

In Tuesday’s message, Francis said he hoped the trip could bring “fraternity and reconciliation to all children of Abraham, particularly in the Islamic world, in which Egypt occupies a primary position” and “offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world”.

The pope’s views are not shared by all Catholics, however. Some conservatives say there should be no dialogue with Islam and that a “war of religion” is in progress.

Italian historian Roberto de Mattei said the Palm Sunday attacks should be “a brusque reality check for Pope Francis”.

Pope Francis in Egypt

The perpetrators were “not unbalanced or crazy but bearers of a religious vision that has been combating Christianity since the seventh century,” De Mattei, editor of the conservative monthly magazine Christian Roots, wrote in an editorial.

Novus Ordo Watch, an ultra-conservative Catholic blog, blasted the Vatican over the logo of the trip, which displays the Muslim crescent and the cross together, and derided the pope as “Mr. Coexist”.

A leading Catholic scholar of Islam, Egyptian-born Father Samir Khalil Samir, said that Francis meant well but was naive.

“I think his ignorance of Islam does not help dialogue. He has said often that we know that Islam is a religion of peace but this is simply a mistake,” Samir, who is based in Beirut, told reporters in Rome.

“We know there are certainly times of peace and a willingness for peace on the part of many Muslims but I can’t read the Koran and pretend that it is a book that is oriented towards peace,” he said.

The region has witnessed a massive exodus of Christians fleeing war and persecution in the past few decades, accelerated recently by the rise of Islamic State. Francis said in his message he hoped his visit could be a “consolation and … encouragement to all Christians in the Middle East”.

He will visit Cairo’s largest Coptic cathedral to pray for the 28 people killed in a Christmas season blast last year and lay flowers in their memory.

Rights activists are concerned about the pope’s meeting with President Sisi.

Sisi has sought to present himself as an indispensable bulwark against terrorism in the region, deflecting Western criticism that he has suppressed political opposition and human rights activists since he was elected in 2014.

Asked if the pope would raise human rights concerns, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said Francis had made “trips more delicate than this one,” adding “let’s see what the pope has to say.” source

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?

March For Science And Earth Day Combine To Promote End Times Gaia Worship And Pagan Idolatry • Now The End Begins

Romans 1 is telling you that the day will come when lost people would worship the creation that God made instead of the One who made it in the first place. That “day” was in full view yesterday with the March For Science and Earth Day. Bill Nye absolutely echoed the hopes and dreams of those many pagan millions when he said that “science will save us”. Sorry, Bill, science will not and cannot save you. Only Jesus can save your soul.
march-for-science-earth-day-2017-end-times-climate-change-global-warming-hoax-pagans-liberals

“science in universal, science points out the best in us, with an informed, optimistic view of the the future we can – dare I say it – save the world!”

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.” 1 Timothy 6:20,21 (KJV)

On April 22, 2017, liberal, atheists, agnostics, pagans and liberals of all stripes from around the globe participated in an event called March For Science. In a “rolling my eyes” coincidence, it just happened to land on Earth Day as well. Rounding out the mix were various anti-Trump protests sprinkled in for added flavor.

One of the main speakers at an event in Washington was world-renowned agnostic Bill Nye “The Science Guy“, who proudly preached the gospel of lost people everywhere when he said “science in universal, science points out the best in us, with an informed, optimistic view of the future we can – dare I say it – save the world!” Umm, no Bill, science is not going to save the world.

March For Science events around the world:

The world still hasn’t caught up to the ‘breaking news’ found in the King James Bible

The millions of people who participated in these events around the world yesterday probably thought that they were on the cutting-edge of modern day 2017, “happening now” events, but they are about 2,000 years behind the times. Why? Because, my King James Bible, in the first chapter of Romans, saw this day coming from a long way off.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” Romans 1:18-23 (KJV)

What are those verses talking about? Romans 1 is telling you that the day will come when lost people would worship the creation that God made instead of the One who made it in the first place. That “day” was in full view yesterday with the March For Science and Earth Day. Bill Nye absolutely echoed the hopes and dreams of those many pagan millions when he said that “science will save us”. Sorry, Bill, science will not and cannot save you. Only Jesus can save your soul.

March For Science Earth Day Compilation  2017 Washington DC:

Lost people have a religion, they have a congregation, the gospel of Climate Change, and they have preachers and evangelists. Watch the video below to see what I’m talking about. This is how pagans “do church”. Enjoy!

In these days now before the Rapture of the Church, lost people are preaching the gospel of science and Gaia worship. In the time of Jacob’s trouble, they again will call out to nature but for a very different reason. They will cry out to the Earth to hide them from the wrath of God, take a look at this:

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Revelation 6:15-17 (KJV)

As it turns out, the vast majority of pagan Liberals, after they miss the Rapture, don’t get saved in the Tribulation either. They stick with science and Earth worship right to the bitter end. In a highly ironic twist, their final resting place is in the “heart of the earth” they loved so much.

In a place called Hell.

“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.” Luke 12:5 (KJV)

Why Bible Prophecy Matters

 

By Britt Gillette April 04, 2017
Share this article:


Why does Bible prophecy matter? As a Christian, why should you spend any time studying it? It’s sad to say, but many Christians (including many church leaders) say Bible prophecy doesn’t matter.
And they say you shouldn’t spend any time studying it. Why? Some of the stated reasons are “Study of Bible prophecy is a waste of time” or “it’s a distraction.”
Another common criticism is “Bible prophecy so negative!” Negative?
How is the return of Jesus to establish everlasting peace on earth with no more death, crying, sorrow, or pain (Revelation 21:4) negative?
It’s not. In fact, it’s our Blessed Hope (Titus 2:13)! No. There’s something else going on here, and I think I know what it is.
The real reason so many church leaders ignore Bible prophecy is because they care more about what the world thinks than what God thinks.
They associate the study of Bible prophecy with date setters and “kooks.” And they don’t want others to think they’re like that.
It’s much easier (and a lot less controversial) to cover topics like “Seven Ways to a Better Marriage” or “Five Ways to Live a Better Life Today” or “How to Be Happy All the Time.”
Now, I’m not saying these topics don’t matter. They definitely do. God wants us all to live a full and blessed life here on earth.

Dreams And Visions Of Jesus Fueling Muslim Conversions To Christianity

Millions of Muslims all over the world are giving their lives to Jesus Christ, and in many instances this is happening because of dreams, visions and other supernatural encounters.
Recently I have been writing a lot about the decline of Christianity in America and about the judgment that is about to hit our churches.
Fortunately, the decaying state of the church in the United States is only a small part of the overall story. In other areas of the globe, Christianity is experiencing absolutely explosive growth even in the midst of horrendous persecution.
This is particularly true in Islamic nations, where we are seeing things happen that could have come straight out of the Book of Acts.
All over the planet, Jesus is personally visiting Muslims in supernatural ways, and this has resulted in an enormous wave of conversions.

Trump to maintain US aid to Israel despite budget cuts to State Dept. | World Israel News

 

Money allocated for military aid to Israel will be kept in Trump’s budget to ensure Israel maintains its qualitative edge over its enemies.

US military aid to Israel will be spared from cuts to the US State Department in the budget presented by US President Donald Trump that would earmark $10 billion less to the US State Department in 2018 than the current fiscal year.

“(The President’s 2018 budget) provides $3.1 billion to meet the security assistance commitment to Israel, currently at an all-time high, ensuring that Israel has the ability to defend itself from threats and maintain its qualitative military edge,” the budget reads…

News Update: Conference in Indonesia – Israel Study Center

Teaching in Indonesia

I just got back from conducting a conference in Indonesia for about 600 pastors, leaders and Christian workers! Indonesia is a home to about 250,000 000 people with a growing Christ-following population of roughly 10-13%. Great openness and hunger to learn to read the Bible for all of its worth. The theme of the conference was “The Jewish Context and Culture in the New Testament”.

It was challenging (I battled jetlag and eye infection) and exhausting (I taught seven different sessions), but response has been overwhelming and truly rewarding! The conference made a significant impression on the hearts of Indonesian Christ-followers and got them even more excited to learn about Jewish Context and Culture of the Bible.
