Another unintended prophecy????


Wow, I read something this morning that knocked my socks off. In a UPI story, GAZPROM seeks partnership with Israel, I see something seemingly right out of Joel Rozenberg’s Ezekiel 38&39 fictional book series seemingly beginning to unfold. See GAZPROM. In the books a wealthy Russian, Palestinian, and Israel partnership in an oil-for-peace project to bring wealth and peace in the Middle East. It never gets off the ground as it precludes the GoG-Magog war and it’s major characters get killed off.

The book series is a really good (and I must say none stop excitement) read with many of the story lines that have actually come to pass. I recommend reading them as they hold almost like bookends to the Left Behind series, before and after. Today Israel is preparing for what is apparently an annual day of Palestinian protests and violence. Will we see it end? Are we seeing yet another piece of the Ezekiel puzzle going into place. Stay tuned to God’s channel for factual reporting and commercial free listening.

These are exciting times, are you ready for them? Have you asked the Christ Jesus into your heart and given Him Lordship? There is no time left to lose, ask Him into your heart today for the peace of God that passes all human understanding……

For the USA, revival or restoration?


I’ve heard time and again from well-meaning Christians about the restoration of the USA to its former glory. If we just pray hard for revival and repentance God will restore the USA to its former glory and deliver its people. I’ve even heard it as prophetic utterance or as I put it utterly nonsense. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in the prophetic and I pray for more leading as time comes to an end, but the thing is, time is coming to an end. It seems pretty materialistic to keep holding on to that glory image.

At no time in history have the biblical prophecies lined up with fulfillment, especially the most important, the restoration of Israel and the return of her people until now. There have been many skirmishes and minor wars in the middle east, but none has come like the lining up of Ezekiel 38 & 39 as I wrote about previously. The alliances are being made, the Muslim Brotherhood is seizing power along North and Northeastern Africa as the King of the South. These are very real times, with the focus on war obscuring events in Israel being ignored by the media. The prophesied replanting and greening of Israel, the discovery of huge oil and gas reserves in Israel, the acute prosperity of Israel. All prophesied for the return of Israel.

These are the last days we live in. Many still try to place the USA in the Bible as the powerful and rich nation. They try to stretch scriptures to include the USA, but it has been for some time my feeling that the USA will no longer exist, or at least, not exist as a world power. It’s hard for this generation to wrap their heads around it but even in the norm, without prophecy, societies as a rule only last about 200 years before “meism” brings that society down. Folks, we’ve well crossed that 200 years and “meism” runs rampant here.

In the prophetic, we have Gog and Magog moving along, Israel blessed and the rest of the world in upheaval. Currently, Israel still has the USA for protection so it postures a lot. Recently, when Israel PM Netenyahu visited here he gave the president a decorative scroll of the Book of Esther. I believe the PM was trying to imply to the president that, like Queen Esther, he was placed in that position for such a time as this, with yet someone else trying to annihilate the Jews. It’s a great thought and a great ploy by the PM.

I, too, believe that the president was placed in his position for just a time as this, but not what the PM was thinking. If the scenario plays out that the new Russian president ( GOG ) advances his timetable and demands that Israel disarm (kind of what we did with Hussein) in 30-60 days, of which Israel will ignore, he could ask the UN for a fighting coalition to go in and disarm. In this case the US president will abstain and withdraw support and protection of Israel. This will leave Israel defenseless except for God, which is how the Bible plays it out. Only God can and will protect Israel and be glorified.

Which then brings us back to the USA. The apostasy of the “church” here has already brought judgement but the process of leaving Israel in the lurch will bring down the curse on the USA. We HAVE BEEN a strong, blessed country because we loved God and blessed Israel. Why isn’t the USA in the Bible? Because it left God and abandoned Israel. The purveyors of the notion of the former glory are also the ones who can’t let go of it, of the dependency that came with it. Americans are so preoccupied with the material things, doctors, insurance, debt that there is no room for faith, just faith that God will do what you ask.

God is bringing the fall on the USA, the judgement will come. Some of us are being called to prepare physically (called Preppers) yet be mindful that you may be preparing for someone else left behind. Remember to include the Gospel, Christian literature even recent historical articles indicating how things got that far and who’s behind it. As God moves in these times and seeing the imminent fall, I write with an anticipation of the coming of real miracles in the USA, total dependence on God for our needs, that’s what God wants, total dependence. Are you ready for that time? can you turn away from your big screen, lose your Blackberry or Ipod, quit running to the doctor every sneeze? God wants you now, not later. He wants the fullness of your love. He wants you prepared to be able to minister to the flood of people in need when it comes. A revival as never before seen, and never to be seen again is coming, but that coming is as a catching before the fire before the Lord calls us to Him. Jesus is coming for us soon, very very soon.

Coming to the USA: Revival, yes…….restoration……no……

The shaking is beginning


In reference to Glynda’s posting at:

“The Shaking Is Beginning”

I encourage you to visit and see what God is saying.

Hy Glynda,

Yes the shaking has begun and has been for some weeks. Unions are under test, yes, even unions that make your church relationship. I have been in a meat grinder the last two months with a leader who’s heart is evil and not of God. When I cried out the testing wasn’t meant for me, but of the church leadership. Whether or not they have the strength and foundation to act in the manner of God.

Don’t be troubled by the shaking, whether the ground, sounds from the sky, or your relationship or union. Cling tightly to God, our father and Jesus, His Son and our Brother.

Gog has taken over Magog and Russian troops have entered Syria. These are exciting times we live in, look to the sky but be found doing God’s work when He comes. The thought of being here when God tosses bombs aimed at Israel back to where they came from is thrilling. God is the God of old, the present and the future and His power will never be diminished.

Take the shaking, enjoy the ride because you are in His hands and no harm will befall you. Christ is coming very very soon for His own. Be one of them.

Dan

Gog and Magog


Well, it was expected and it did happen. The new Czar of Russia has been elected with the promise of immediately spending $ 3/4 trillion to expand the “defense”. The Russian/Iranian alliance is hard evidence of the coming together of Ezekiel 38 & 39. No, it’s not 1967 or 1973 or any of those other skirmishes. None of them had the named nations of the scriptures together in one setting. The current situation is the formation of that very alliance formation described in the scripture.

Russia needs to expand her empire and southward is the only place to go. She has already allied with Iran and is protecting Syria. Putin has already described his aim to acquire 800 more ballistic missiles, all the while the US president is working to reduce their own nuclear capability by 80%. The US will no longer be a threat because their president ( a Muslim brother) is emasculating the country. Would Russia use missiles? Given the context of Iran, maybe. Recent discussions have indicated that Putin is not capable of fielding an army ( let alone a potent workforce) due to a negative population growth the last decades. Missiles and tactical weapons take the place of many men and women.

Of interesting note is that neither Egypt nor Iraq are in the current setting. But then again, neither are they in the scriptural setting in Ezekiel 39. They are conspicuously absent. Additionally, the US is not a part of that setting in scripture. Currently, as opposed to US history of strongly supporting her, the current US president feigns support only to give the Iranians time to develop nuclear weapons, backpack ready. The US will no longer support Israel either directly or by abstentia and in so doing will seal it’s doom and invoke the curse of those who turn on Israel.

Watch the middle east carefully and fearfully. Scripture is unfolding before your eyes, Gog has been named and Magog makes it’s alliances, and Israel is left with only God as her protection.

So too for you. Are you still relying on things of this world for your peace (what peace) and safety? Are you seeing those very things being shaken? Only the peace of God can save you, only His strength will prevail. Time is short and running out, are you ready for His coming? It is the easiest thing you can do, yet the hardest but most important time in your life. Ask Jesus, the Christ, into your heart. Be washed in His sacrifice and give Him the Lordship of your life. It is by the strength of His Sovereignty that you will be saved from that which is coming. Don’t wait, find Jesus now……
