ELIJAH AND MOSES IN ISRAEL
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
There is actually 2 witnesses, Elijah went to heaven in a rapture. And so did Enoch. Moses died and God hid his body.
1 - First we get the scripture that Enoch was raptured to heaven.
HEBREWS 11:55 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
2 - Second Elijah being raptured to heaven.
2 KINGS 2:1,11-12
1 And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
3 - Now Moses died and God hid his body.
5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.
7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.
I find this scripture very intersting! Why would God say that even though Moses was 120 years old he himself and his eyes were still strong and not week. Was God giving us a hint here that Moses will be the other witness in the Book of Revelation Chapter 11.
Now I have explained all of the above for a reason , because now we go to Revelation CH 11 to see 2 future preachers coming to Israel to preach to Israel and the world that they have to repent for the King is returning to Earth bodily. (JESUS), to rule and reign from Davids throne.
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
In these 2 verses we see the 3RD TEMPLE is rebuilt. Before the 2 WITNESSES COME ON THE SCENE.
THE 2 WITNESSES COME ON THE SCENE.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore (1,260) days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Right off it says 2 WITNESSES will preach for 3 1/2 years.
Who are these 2 Witnesses?
Well I believe they will be Elijah and Moses, and we will have a closer look why I think this.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
Notice these 2 preachers are preaching Prophesy! Prophesy is KING JESUS is returning to earth bodily to rule and reign from Jerusalem from Davids throne. Why all the SIGNS JESUS gave us to look for, all the SIGNS are for his 2ND coming to earth.
Why I think these 2 Witnesses will be Elijah and Moses?
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
We see these 2 will kill people that try to hurt them when their preaching Prophesy by shooting fire out of their mouths. This will be a miracle in itself, but coming from Elijah and Moses GOD done many miracles with these 2 in Bible times.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
We will recognize by what these 2 witnesses do, why I think it will be Elijah and Moses.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
ELIJAH first!!!!! - ELIJAH means my God is Jah, or God himself
God answered Elijahs prayer in the past by making it rain. and other miracles as you will read.
1 KINGS 18:1-2,43-45
1 And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
2 And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.
43 And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
44 And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.
45 And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
Isnt this interesting that Elijah told Ahab to go to the sea 7 times, when it is during the future 7 year peace treaty that these 2 preachers will be preaching. And it is also the 70th week of Daniels prophesy. We might just see a connection here. From past to present.
And one more interesting fact Elijahs name means God himself. during this 7 yr treaty it is God judging the world of sin, but still like Moses name means drawer out, God will be drawing people to himself during this time of trouble on the earth.
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
2 KINGS 2:8
8 And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.
2 KINGS 1:2
2 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
MOSES second!!!! - MOSES name means drawer out.
God used Moses mightily to free his people in the past, why not in the future again. By the miracles of the 10 plaques. Here is something interesting again God wanted to show SIGNS for the generations of Israelis, and during this 7 yr tribulation or peace treaty the SIGNS of the end of the age of grace are being fulfilled!. And like I said before it also is Daniels 70th week to fulfill all the prophesies after dealing with Israel, and Jerusalem. Notice in verse 3 of Exodus 10 we read Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews. And one more intersting fact God is dealing with Hardened hearted people just like Pharaoh here in Exodus 10. During this 7 yr of incredible commandment breaking.
1ST PLAGUE WATER TURNED TO BLOOD Exodus 7:17-21, Revelation 16:3
17 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.
19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.
21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
2ND PLAGUE FROGS Exodus 8:5-6, Revelation 16:13-14
5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.
6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
3RD PLAGUE LICE Exodus 8:15-17
15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
4TH PLAGUE FLIES Exodus 8:22-24
22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.
23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
24 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
5TH PLAGUE DEAD ANIMALS Exodus 9:1-6, Revelation 16:3
1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,
3 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.
4 And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.
5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.
6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
6TH PLAGUE BOILS Exodus 9:8-10, Revelation 16:2
8 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.
10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
7TH PLAGUE PESTILENCE, HAIL Exodus 9:22-25, Revelation 16:21
22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
EXODUS 10:1-31 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:
2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.
3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.
8TH PLAGUE LOCUSTS. Exodus 10:12-15, Revelation 9:3-4
12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.
13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.
15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.
9TH PLAGUE DARKNESS FOR 3 DAYS. Exodus 10:20-23, Revelation 16:10
20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
10TH PLAGUE FIRSTBORN KILLED Exodus 11:4-10, Revelation 16:14-16
4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.
9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
Alright so this is why I think the two Witnesses will be Elijah and Moses. Now lets continue on to see what happenes to these two at the midpoint of the 7 yr tribulation.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 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.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
So Here we see The EU leader has Elijah and Moses murdered, and will not let their bodies be buried for 3 1/2 days. But lets look at the next interesting turn of events in Revelation 11:11-12
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Here we see yet another rapture to Heaven. After the 3 1/2 days Elijah and Moses are brought back to life and raptured to heaven by God in front of thousands at Jerusalem and even millions through television. Since they were hated, everybody will be watching their dead bodies lying on the street in Jerusalem, so they won't miss out on this rapture either. There will probably be a continuous camera on them so people can glote over their bodies live throught the internet.
Then we see how God gets revenge on the Gloters in Jerusalem.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
So here we see our Awesome God getting revenge on gloters of Elijah and Moses dead bodies. The very same hour a gigantic earthquake occurs, 1/10TH of Jerusalem is destroyed and 7,000 people die in this quake. And the rest that were in Jerusalem gave God the glory only because they are so scared, not because of true repentence.
I will leave you with a nice verse for the Israelis to cling to from Matthew 8:11.
11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
That means a resurrection of the dead for all the righteous Israelis since the beginning of time. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Come quickly Lord JESUS. AMEN and AMEN.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Maurice Sklar ministries (NOV 24,05)
You shall surely perish when the fullness of My wrath comes upon Babylon (USA). You shall be utterly burned with fire. You have heard and received the fullness of My love and grace, America. Still, you spit in My face and harden your hearts and refuse to turn back to Me.
Europe, you rejected Me and threw Me out. For hundreds of years you provoked Me to wrath. You despised My people Israel and slaughtered them in a rage that reached to heaven after robbing the Jewish people and throwing them out of nation after nation.
You did this all in My Name!! How can you escape the wrath to come?! You cannot. Therefore, you shall receive and drink the fullness of My cup of wrath. Prepare to meet your God, O Europe! Europe, you shall receive 'the king' that you desire to worship instead of Me. He is soon to come forth. When you receive his mark, you will be eternally damned.
Hospital to Test ID Chip in Patients
By Annette Wells, San Bernardino County Sun, Calif.
Nov. 23--A controversial device that can store security information and is the size of a grain of rice will make its way into the right arms of some 50 volunteering Arrowhead Regional Medical Center patients. But, its purpose here won't be to provide bank account or e-mail passwords to the Colton hospital's staff.
The VeriMed microchip system will be used to store valuable information such as type of allergies and current medication so physicians can determine the safest treatment in the event someone is unconscious or unable to speak. On Tuesday, the county Board of Supervisors approved the hospital's request to take part in a pilot program with the microchip's maker, VeriChip Corporation, for four months.
The hospital will receive 50 of the devices and, on a voluntary basis, will implant them into its patients. Dr. Dev GnanaDev, Arrowhead Regional medical director, said the program is part of the hospital's push to get appropriate care to those with chronic ailments such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes.
Arrowhead Regional's emergency room is often occupied by patients with a chronic disorder who can't effectively communicate their medical needs. For example, GnanaDev said a diabetic might enter the hospital in a coma, but ER staff might not associate the two because
they don't have access to medical records that quickly.
"In a situation like that, just a few more minutes might make a difference," he said.
With the Board's approval, Arrowhead Regional becomes the seventh hospital in the country and the first in California to agree to pilot the microchip.
Depending on the time it takes to get up and running, Arrowhead Regional's program could become just the second to go online, said John Procter, a spokesman for VeriChip Corporation.
Currently, Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey is the only hospital nationwide where the device is in use.
The microchip was approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration last year for medical purposes. However, because it can be used to store other, more private information, Supervisor Gary Ovitt said he is opposed to the hospital's proposal to pilot it.
The 4th District supervisor said, philosophically, he's not opposed to implanting medical devices such as pacemakers. However, he didn't see the need for implanting a device in someone with identifying information.
"It's kind of a privacy issue," he said. Bill Postmus, chairman of the board, also cast a dissenting vote. GnanaDev said he understood Ovitt's position and those of privacy rights advocates.
"Our answer to that is that we're not identifying anyone; we're not tracking anyone; we're just giving them a number that links them to their medical records," he said.
VeriChip is a subdermal radio frequency microchip that, once inserted under the skin in a brief outpatient procedure, can not be seen by the human eye. Each chip contains a unique 16-digit verification number that is captured by passing a scanner over the insertion site.
The 16-digit number links to a database via encrypted Internet access. That stored information is then conveyed via the Internet to the requesting healthcare provider. A similar device has been used as a location aid in pets for about 15 years.
For the pilot, Arrowhead Regional will receive 50 devices at no cost, as well as the scanning device. If there is interest in more chips, the hospital would enter into a separate agreement with VeriChip Corporation to purchase them, pending approval from the Board of Supervisors.

THE DESTINY OF NATIONS
Every nation has two groups of people in it: the general population, which is seen by God as being in rebellion to His authority (Psalm 2); and the remnant, which is the group of true born-again followers of Jesus (Yeshua). The spiritual destiny of a nation is carried by the remnant of believers within that nation. We cannot understand Godâ€™s purpose and destiny for a nation by the unbelieversâ€” even though the unbelievers are usually the majority population within the nation.
When God looks at a nation, He looks at it like a piece of fruitâ€”like a banana with a peel, or like a nut with a shell surrounding it. The unbelievers in the nation are like the outer shell, but youâ€”the believing remnant within the nationâ€”are the part that God is looking at as the bearers of the national destiny! Godâ€™s purpose and the destiny for your nation is not in the hard outer shell of the unbelievers; it is in the core fruit of the believing remnant of your nation! Let me give you a couple of examples. We cannot understand the spiritual destiny of China by looking at the communist regime of Mao Tse-Tung.
That is only the carnal exterior of Chinaâ€”the chaff! The â€œwheatâ€ of China is the approximately 100 million believers found in it's underground church. When God looks at China He sees both the wheat and the chaff. If we do not have much spiritual discernment, we will only see the chaff, because that is what is visible to the natural eye. That is, we would only be able to see communist China and not the fruit of God within the underground Chinese church. It takes spiritual sight to see the hidden remnant within China, but it is only the believing remnant that carries the purpose and destiny of God for China.
In the end, God will separate the two. Remember that God takes the chaff and burns it up (Matthew 3:12)! The communist regime is not even going to be in the kingdom of God, but the underground Chinese church will be. We understand why God made the Chinese nation, when we see its underground Church. Consider the suffering and courage of that community of faith. What would the kingdom of God be without them? Let me give you another example: the believing remnant of Palestinians in Israel. One of the joys we Messianic Jews have in Israel is our relationship with Palestinian Christians. Iâ€™m talking about born again, Spirit-filled, evangelizing believers who are Arab by birth! We have organized conferences from time to time, in which we enjoy precious worship and communion together.
As Jews we are enriched by our fellowship with Arab Christians, because they carry with them some of the culture of our forefather Abraham. Our peopleâ€”the Jewish peopleâ€”have been scattered in exile for the past two thousand years, and so we have come back somewhat as strangers to our own land. We have actually discovered some of our own roots through our Arab Christian friends! Our ministry in Israel is in partnership with a group of Palestinian evangelists who are preaching the gospel to Muslims in the West Bank. They are in danger of their lives from day to day. Yet Muslims are being saved through them! Like the underground church of China, they also suffer for their faith. As a Jewish believer, I cannot imagine the kingdom of God without the remnant of true Arab Christians!
God has a spiritual purpose and destiny for every tribe, tongue, people and nation - if only we will have spiritual eyes to see it. The same holds true for Israel. If you want to understand the purpose for our nation, you cannot look at the unbelievers. You have to look at the hidden believing remnant within Israel.
Romans 11:2-5"God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israelâ€¦? But what does the divine response say to him? 'I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.' Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace."
Perhaps you did not even know that there is a believing remnant in Israel. Today - similar as in Elijah's days - there are more than 7,000 people who are Israeli citizens, Jewish by physical birth, and born again by the Spirit of Yeshua. I am blessed to count myself as one of those. As it was in the example of the Chinese Church and the Palestinian Christians, so it is with the Messianic Remnant of Israel. The destiny of our nation is found within the believing community, not in the unbelieving majority. If you want to understand what God is doing in Israel, the primary place you will be able to see it is within the Messianic Remnant. Some of you have become confused in trying to understand God's destiny for Israel by looking at our unbelieving politiciansâ€”right wing or left wing, or by our unbelieving rabbisâ€”Orthodox or Reform. That is not where you are going to see God's purpose for Israel! Why are you willing to have spiritual discernment when you look at every other nation of the world except for our nation?!
I want to challenge you as Christian intercessors. If you want to understand the purpose of Israel you must look past the outer shell of our unbelieving politicians and rabbis, and you must look to the core remnant of true believers within our nation. If you continue to try to see the spiritual destiny and purpose of Israel by looking only at the unbelievers, you will only get confused either on one side or the other. Either you might become an "Israel-worshipper"; in which case you might start believing that a right-wing politician or religious rabbi is saved just because he can quote some things from the Bible. On the other hand, you might end up in "Replacement Theology", rejecting God's plan for Israel altogether because you say, â€˜These people are not spiritual and not believers in Yeshua. Therefore they can't be Israel; and God has no special destiny for this nation.â€™ That is also a grave mistake.
Both Israel idolatry and Replacement theology are errors. Both come from the mistake of missing the role of the Messianic remnant within the nation. The Messianic Remnant provides the correction for both Israel idolatry and Replacement theology. As in every other nation, to understand the destiny and purpose of God for Israel we must look with spiritual discernment at the believing remnant within the nation. This remnant of evangelizing believers is how the kingdom of God is increasing. That reality is no less true in Israel than it is in every other nation on the face of the earth.
We must have Godâ€™s vision for the nations which is expressed and carried only in the believing remnant of that nation. There are two possible destinies for the peoples in every nation. There is the good destiny that comes from God and a perversion of that destiny which comes from the devil. We can see this in Zechariah 14 where the phrase â€œall nationsâ€ is used twice in the chapter. At the beginning of the chapter (verses 2-3) it says, â€œFor I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battleâ€ and they will be destroyed by Yeshua at His second coming. (NAS) Then toward the end of the same chapter in (v.16) it also says that â€œâ€¦every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalemâ€ (or, you could say, the remnant of every nation) shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.â€ KJV
You see that â€œall the nationsâ€ have both a positive divine destiny and a negative demonic destiny. The struggle between those two destinies is what spiritual warfare is all about. You are the representative within your nation that carries the destiny that God sees for your nation. You contain within you a vision for the salvation of your nation. You are not going to be the part of the unbelievers from â€œall nationsâ€ that come up to Jerusalem to be destroyed! You represent the kernel of wheat within your nation and not the chaff. You carry Godâ€™s vision for the nations regarding Israel. You are called to partner with the remnant of believers in Israel through intercession and support of Godâ€™s purposes within Israel.

STANS ISRAELI FLAG ISSUE SHOT DOWN
The Issue I went to City hall against was Homosexuals flying their flag outside of City Hall. But when I wanted a Christian symbol (the israeli flag) flown , I got shot down as you will read. But one good thing did come out of it, no more flags can be flown outside city hall but Canadian and visiting dignitaries flags.
Here is a copy of what I said in front of City Council members Monday July 11,05.
Church members Mayor and City council members.
What kind of a City or Country are we when we take God out of everything and call sin as normal, such as Strippers(nothing but legal prostitution), Drug and Alcohol abuse, Abortion(murder of innocent babies and Homosexuality and adultery.
What does God say about this kind of activity of commandment breaking and leaving him out of everything. These are not my words these are Gods words. In Lev 26:16 It says, I will bring upon you sudden terror, waisting diseases and fever that will drain your life away. And also in Psalm 9:17 it says The wicked shall be turned in to Hell, and all the Nations who forget God. I think we should start listening to the voice of God that is powerful and truth and start respecting him.
And as a sign of respect to our God and to the Nation of Israel I would like to demand that the Israeli flag be flown permamently outside city hall as a sign of appreciation for the Israelis, their future Messiah and as a sign for the majority of Owensound who are Christians.
As we as Christians know Jesus our savior is Jewish and as our leader and future King of Jerusalem, I demand on behalf of all the Christians worldwide that the Israeli flag be flown outside of city hall permanantly.
If minorities can have their flag outside city hall, I surely believe the majority of Owensounders can demand the Israeli flag be flown as a sign of our leader Jesus our God to be flown as well.
You can not just give minorities their say and leave the majority out in the cold.
So I as a christian on behalf of all TRUE CHURCHES demand that the Israeli flag be flown outside city hall permanantly as reminder of our support for the Nation of Israel and our Jewish savior Jesus Christ our leader.
Thank you very much for agreeing with the majority as the minorities got their symbol of respect at city hall.
Just lastly I would like to state the symbol of the rainbow in the Bible states in Genesis 9:11-13 GOD promised No MORE JUDGEMENT by flooding the whole earth or its inhabitants. Is it not interesting that minorities use a symbol of judgement in their human rights issues.
Thank use for the equal rights of the majority of Owensounders.

JESUS IS GOD
Who ever denies JESUS IS GOD is an Anti-christ.1 John 4:2-32 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
WHATS SO SPECIAL ABOUT CHRISTMAS? 1 John 4:14
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
THE MAGI KINGS KNEW THE SIGNS, THEY KNEW BABY JESUS WAS THE PROMISED MESSIAH (ANOINTED ONE).
Matthew 2:22 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Micah 5:22 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
Proverbs 30:44 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?
Isaiah 9:66 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
John 1:1-3,14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Romans 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
THE WORLD HAS ALWAYS HATED JESUS, THATS WHY ISRAEL IS HATED SO MUCH IN THE LAST DAYS.
No room in the inn. Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Born in a barn, laid in a manger with animals.
WHEN JESUS WAS OLDER,THEY SAID ALL KINDS OF THINGS AGAINST HIM.
Matthew 9:34 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.
John 8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
John 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
John 10:20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
And in our day2 Peter 2:1-2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
ALL CLONES ARE VIRGIN BIRTHS.SURELY THE GOD OF ISRAEL COULD PUT A SINLESS PERSON (JESUS) IN A BODY.
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Luke 1:34-35 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?35 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.
WHY A VIRGIN BIRTH?
Because we all were guilty through Adams fall. Roman 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have
Adams blood stream became polluted. Now for the Almighty God to by pass the polluted blood stream of Adam, he sent his son and Jesus said in Hebrews 10:5 A body my father prepared for me. And in that body was the precious blood.
1 Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Blood without taint, blood without sin. All the blood in a baby is stricktly from the man, no mother ever passes her blood, she only nurishes the child. Its the blood in the sperm. And so they had to avoid it, and they did through a virgin Birth. praise God.
Now this virgin born one came for one reason.1 John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
Theres only one way to be saved, thats through the cross of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 53:4-7 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He came for this. He knew why he came. He was laid in that grave. Christ died for our sins. He was buried and he rose again the third day. Now without the resurrection, none of this would be true.
Because Romans 1:4 says Christ is declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of Holiness.
By the resurrection of the dead. So you can trust him today. This one (JESUS) is soon coming back to set up his Kingdom for 1000 years. Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
THATS THE CHRISTMAS STORY.
IF YOU ARE NOT SAVED PRAY THIS FROM YOUR HEART.
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (GOD) JESUS CHRIST shall be saved Romans 10:13.
LORD JESUS, SAVIOR OF THE WORLD. YOU CAME TOOK A BODY. AND THAT BLOOD IN THAT BODY, WAS SHED FOR ME. TO WASH ME, TO CLEANSE ME AND TO SAVE ME. TODAY, I RECIEVE YOUR SACRIFICE FOR ME. LORD JESUS, COME INTO MY HEART. I PRAY THIS IN YOUR HOLY NAME KING JESUS. AMEN AND AMEN.
AND WE ALL PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM, AND COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS.

HAPPY CHANUKAH 2005
REMEMBER JESUS CELEBRATED CHANUKAH. HE WAS JEWISH.
22 ¶ And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
30 I and my Father are one.
3 DAYS AGO ON DEC 19,05 I WAS CLOSING MY EYES IN PRAYER, WHEN IN TO MY VIEW COMES A PICTURE OF SOUTH AMERICA, THE WAY WHEN YOU SEE IT ON A WORLD MAP. AND 3 / 4 OF THE WAY UP SOUTH AMERICA I SEE A MUSHROOM CLOUD COMING OUT FROM IT. THATS ALL I SEEN, NOBODY ANGEL OR GOD CAME TO ME, IT WAS JUST A VISION. AFTER I WAS DONE WITH MY PRAYER I WENT TO SEE ON MY WORLD MAP WERE THE PLACE WAS I SEEN IN MY VISION. AND THERE IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME SPOT I SEEN THE MUSHROOM CLOUD, IT WAS IN BRAZIL WERE THE MUSHROOM CLOUD CAME FROM.
NOW THE ONLY WAY WE WILL KNOW IF IT WAS GOD REVEALING IT TO ME OR NOT IS IF IT COMES TO PASS. IF IT DOES NOT COME TO PASS THEN IT WAS JUST MY IMAGINATION. TIME WILL TELL, BUT I NEVER EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN MY PRAYERS BEFORE. THERE WAS NO TIME INVOLVED JUST THE SOUTH AMERICA CONTINENT AND THE MUSHROOM CLOUD COMING UP FROM BRAZIL.
REMEMBER AS TIMES GET WORSE, THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND THE WORLD WILL PROTECT HIS OWN.
KEEP WATCHING THE EVENTS AS THEY HAPPEN, SO WE CAN SOON BE CAUGHT UP WITH THE LORD TO BE WITH MESSIAH FOREVER AND EVER ON EARTH, WERE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM AS ITS WORLD CAPITAL.
SHALOM IN EVERYTHING EVERYONE.

SOLOMONS TEMPLE TO BE REBUILT
The Bible clearly says the 3RD TEMPLE has to be rebuilt before the 7 year peace treaty can be signed.
This is one of the most important prophesy happenings. So when this Temple is rebuilt it will bring excitement to Jews and Christians alike.
'Temple' to be built in the north
A 25-meter-tall (82 feet) replica of Solomon's temple in ancient Jerusalem to be built in northern city of Kiryat Shemoneh. Project will cost 8 million dollars to build, become main feature of city's Bible World amusement park Eitan Glickman
Not quite the Third Temple, but close: Entrepreneurs in the northern city of Kiryat Shemoneh are making plans to build a "Holy Temple" as part of a soon-to-be established Bible World amusement park.
House of God
Like the original in Jerusalem, the model structure will tower over its surroundings, reaching a height of 25 meters (82 feet) and will be an exact replica of Solomon's temple on Jerusalem's Temple Mount, destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.
"Time tunnels" will offer descriptions of the different periods of Jewish history, and will lead visitors to the main hall, which will feature murals depicting Biblical stories.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to "meet" three heroes of the Bible: Abraham, Moses and King David.
Is the Bible 'disappearing' from consciousness?
Overseeing the project is Chabad rabbi of Kiryat Shemoneh, Yigal Tsipori, who toured the site Wednesday with Mayor Chaim Barbibai and other local rabbis.
"The 'Book of Books,' the cradle of Jewish civilization, is increasingly disappearing from our national consciousness.
Limited study is no longer sufficient to attract young people of today to the Bible and its values. Therefore, there is a great need for this initiative," said Tsipori.
"The 'Temple' will use 3-D movies and other tools to show young people just how things worked in the Holy Temple and just what the priests (Cohanim) did," he added.
The park will also feature a Biblical textile mill and wine press, and will host Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions.
400,000 visitors expected
The park's founders say they hope to attract 400,000 visitors annually to the park, including local Israeli youths and young people from the Diaspora.
The project, to be located near the Nehemia Mall in Kiryat Shemoneh, is expected to cost USD 8 million (NIS 38 million) and employ several dozen workers.
Several donors have already been lined up to fund the project.

Messianic Expectations Soar with the Completion of the Blue Robe
December 17, 2005
View a photo of the completed Blue Robe
Excitement permeated the air as the blue robe for the High Priest was put on display this week in the city of Jerusalem. Expecting the return of their long awaited Messiah upon the completion of the building of the Third Temple, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem is one step closer to the realization of their dream.
With a majority of the implements and furniture for the Third Temple already completed, the Blue Robe to be worn by the next High Priest of Israel is a welcome addition. The robe itself is an exquisite work of craftsmanship. Made to the strictest adherence to the Biblical text, the robe is completely woven of blue wool with 72 golden bells around the hem of the garment. It is decorated with dark blue embroidery around the edges and intricately woven pomegranates between each of the bells.
Exodus 28 describes each of the garments the High Priest was to wear. After three years of hard work the Temple Institute has completed an authentic replica of "the robe of the ephod". Attention was given to every detail and the end result is stunning. Jewish authorities believe that upon the completion and dedication of the Third Temple the Messiah will appear. In order for the Temple to be properly dedicated there must be a High Priest and the High Priest must be properly dressed.
All of the garments for the next High Priest are now complete. The Jewish people have been waiting for 2000 years for the completion of the Third Temple and they are closer now than they have ever been to seeing the realization of that goal.The culmination of many events in our lifetime seem to indicate an emanate appearance of the Jewish Messiah and the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple.
For the first time in 2000 years the Jewish people have a sovereign nation with Jerusalem as its capital. Jewish people are returning to their homeland by the thousands each year just as the Jewish prophets foretold.
The Jewish people are also preparing for a Third Temple and have completed the High Priestly garments. Even the dye used in the Blue Robe is a direct indication of a Messianic appearance. It has been unavailable for thousands of years but is now readily available from a small crustacean which makes its home in the Mediterranean Sea.
These are only a few of the prophecies that have been fulfilled in our lifetime which strongly suggest a soon appearance of the long awaited Messiah

EU 7YR BUDGET CONNECTED TO WTO
notice the EU budget is a 7 YR TERM, This is no accident because when this world leader comes on the scene, he signs a 7 YR CONTRACT WITH ISRAEL / ARABS AND MANY.
EU accord on budget linked to WTO deal
By Graham Bowley International Herald Tribune TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2005
London In the space of a few hours this past weekend, two global problems that had seemed insoluble suddenly came unlocked. The European Union had a budget plan until 2013 (7YR), and the World Trade Organization was able to conclude what it somewhat grandly called the Hong Kong Declaration.
How these two solutions came together is a tale of interlocking diplomatic tracery. EU officials insist publicly there was no link, but others familiar with the negotiations admit that EU negotiators in Hong Kong were following what they termed a parallel game plan based on the assumption of a budget deal, and declare that without an agreement in Brussels, a deal in Hong Kong would have been impossible.
Last Thursday night, after EU leaders dined, the prospect of an EU budget deal looked so distant that most leaders emerging into the Brussels rain shook their heads pessimistically. Germany's new chancellor, Angela Merkel, described her mood as skeptical.
Twenty-eight hours later, early Saturday morning, a deal was struck, giving the EU a budget for 2007-2013, ending months of fraught negotiations and drawing a line - temporarily, at least - under the crisis.
According to which country you talk to, there were many different heroes of the Brussels budget summit. But accounts from well-placed officials who insisted on anonymity because of the delicacy of the talks suggest the successful outcome was achieved by a combination of leaders, including most prominently Merkel, but also Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain, who was chairing the talks, President Jacques Chirac of France, Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker of Luxembourg, and José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.
By the close of talks on Thursday evening, nations were still divided on two main sticking points. First, many felt that Britain's proposal for the overall level of the budget was still far too stingy, and, second, France and Britain were divided on how much of its rebate Britain should give up and how concretely France would, in return, commit to a midterm review of budget spending before 2013.
The problem about the overall level of the budget was solved rapidly Friday morning. In conversations with Barroso, Merkel signaled that Germany was prepared to pay more. A decisive meeting came midmorning among Chirac, Blair and Merkel when "it became clear to Blair," said an EU official, "that his two allies, Merkel and Barroso, were preparing to set a higher spending ceiling."
At lunch, Merkel proposed the budget be raised to 1.045 percent of EU gross national income, and "from that moment the whole mood brightened," said another official.
But although higher overall financing was agreed to, the divisions over Britain's contribution and the so-called "review clause" remained so bad that when Chirac and Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy went to rest at their hotels late in the afternoon they still professed themselves gloomy.
On his return, Chirac held a news conference, timed for the French late evening news broadcasts, at which he blamed Blair for the risks of failure.
This disconcerted German and British negotiators. Then, at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, came probably the most important breakthrough of the summit meeting. In a trilateral gathering, Merkel, Blair and Chirac hammered out an agreement on the rebate and on wording of the review clause acceptable to both Britain and France.
On the British rebate, Blair agreed to sacrifice E10.5 billion of the rebate over seven years, out of a total of E50 billion. Blair agreed to increase the pace at which the rebate is phased out. This means that Britain would be contributing fully to payments to past and future EU enlargements by 2013, an important consideration for France, where concerns about the costs of embracing Turkey in the future are particularly severe.
The amount was still less than the E14 billion that France had demanded. But Chirac could see, say officials, that Blair could not give more without paying serious political costs at home. Diplomats said Juncker, a canny European politician, had played a key role in persuading Chirac to accept Blair's action.
The two countries also agreed on a commitment to a "full, wide-ranging review" of the budget in 2008-09. Blair wanted this to be able to cut spending on farm subsidies; Chirac vehemently opposed this. In the end, they agreed to language that neither ruled out changes to spending before 2013 nor stipulated them. The review would include both Britain's rebate and farm spending. Both sides could claim victory.
Yet as the outline of the deal emerged, there was another complication as countries began to demand their share of the extra money that was suddenly on the table. "There was an ugly rush for the goody-box as everyone tried to get as much they could," said a diplomat. At the front of the line were Spain and Italy, but France also demanded more for such regions as Corsica.
Poland demanded extra and Merkel, who had negotiated an extra E400 million for Eastern Germany, quickly redirected E100 million to Warsaw. It meant that when Blair called the final meeting of 25 countries after 1 a.m. Saturday, all raised their hands in favor of the deal.
Merkel appeared to have sensed that it was up to Germany, the biggest EU nation and the largest contributor to the budget, to break the impasse. Merkel was compared favorably by participants to Gerhard Schröder, her predecessor as chancellor, who was rarely interested in negotiations, some officials said, and often sided with Chirac against Blair.
But Merkel had been given room for maneuver by Schröder: He had committed Germany to a budget of 1.06 percent of EU gross national income at the summit meeting last June. As long as Merkel stayed below this figure, she could say that she was getting a better deal for Germany.
Blair faced a difficult negotiating position because of fraught relations with his chancellor, Gordon Brown. One commission official said negotiating with Britain was like negotiating with a coalition government because Blair and Brown were so divided. In the end, he gave up some of the rebate, but kept most of it, and secured the review.
The most immediate consequence of the budget agreement was the deal in trade talks in Hong Kong. That became possible when the EU, which had resisted for days, suddenly on Saturday proposed phasing out agricultural export subsidies by 2013. EU officials say they had always intended to make this offer as part of their game plan for the talks.
In this sense, there was no link between the two negotiations. But officials in Asia were constantly updated on the progress in Brussels. And when it came, the 2007-2013 agreement, by setting agricultural spending but also holding out the firm prospect of change, provided the framework for the trade proposal to be made. "If the budget deal had failed, then the European position in Hong Kong would have collapsed," said one EU official.
It didn't, and the second agreement, in Asia, followed.

LUKEWARMNESS TROUBLE COMING 2006
Sharon is the bought-out U.S. flunky. Peres is the bought-out European Union flunky. So I expect to see huge amounts of western money being poured into Kadima's coffers. It is easier to pour money into one pail than several and attempt to make one political party the holder of power than it would be to coordinate efforts through several political parties as has been done in the past. What I'm saying is that this strange phenomenon of the "successful center party" is the result of manipulation of foreign powers determined to control events here.
I will make one further observation here, given that this is the Holy Land and, according to Jewish ideas at least, G-d always has His Eye on the place. Two mekubalim (holy men who receive kabbalot, divine messages) have stated that Ariel Sharon will be the last prime minister of Israel and that this will be the last time we see a government of this type.Given that, I'm going to make some predictions. Naturally, this is only my opinion, and I am no prophet (though it would be nice if I could pull off a profit).
I really do not think I'm going out on a limb, but I have learned that whenever people make predictions, others stand at the ready to debunk them if they don't come out correct, like loggers with a saw:
1. If the elections are held, Sharon will wind up as prime minister. Here, I'm only following the words of the two mekubalim.
2. Whether elections are held or not, Sharon will remain prime minister. Again, I'm only following the words of the two m'kubalim. I don't take elections for granted. Too many things can happen to upset the "natural" order of events.
3. Sharon will leave office, for some reason or another, during 2006.
4. Sharon's son, Omri, is scheduled to enter jail soon. Knowing how Israeli "justice" works, it will be a short prison term. If I could, I'd want to protect my son in prison. Remaining as prime minister would allow me to do this. Quitting after he got out, selling my ranch and moving to Switzerland would be a smart move, if I were Ariel Sharon.
5. During the next year, we will see the rising visibility of American and European soldiers in this country. This only follows the trend of events here. There are five American bases, and an increasing number of E.U. soldiers here.
6. (This is the biggie -- here I am going out on a limb). Reality has begun to become unhinged. What this means is that events are leaving the path we define as "normal" and taking another path.
This process will accelerate after January 1, 2006.This is also 1 Tevet, 5766, the day that G-d begins executing judgment against non-Jews (according to Rav Yehoshua Friedman). Here I'm following (more or less) the words of a leading mekubal in Israel, who warned that American Jews should leave and come home because a series of terrible disasters would begin to overtake the world.If I were you, I'd really celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah this year, and if you can, buy some gold coins and store them in a safe place. Pick up Yeats' poem, "The Second Coming", and read it over a time or two. Kedai lekha -- it will be worth it to you.
AND BY WHAT I KNOW HE WILL BE CORRECT IN HIS PREDICTIONS.
THE PREPARATION OF THE BRIDEMAURICE SKLAR - Maurice Sklar Ministries Nov 24, 2005
During the past few weeks the Lord has led me to intercede for the nations. The world has experienced numerous disasters and tragedies and continues to do so. There is no question that we are living in the final days before the return of our Messiah, Jesus. This prophecy was given to me a few weeks ago, and I was reluctant to release it because it is so strong.
But the Lord has compelled me to do so. I want to say emphatically that I believe that it is conditional. If we will pray and intercede, perhaps, many of these calamities can be averted and/or postponed.
I pray that as you read this, that you will keep an open mind and receive the main message: We must be ready for the Lord's return. We must return to our first love and live a pure and consecrated life if we are to be pleasing to Him when He appears. May the Lord purify our hearts so we can be a part of His wonderful and beautiful Bride!
"And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write…I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew (vomit) thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white rainment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye-salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
( Revelation 3:14-22)
As I was reading and meditating on this scripture, the Lord said to me: "I am sending my refining fire into the church. I am separating My bride from the Laodicean church of today. I am preparing her. I am purifying her. She will be without spot and without blemish. I will return for her in the midnight hour. Only those that are watching and praying; only those who are embracing the message of the cross and holiness; only those that walk in the power of My spirit in moment by moment obedience; only those who are overcomers will be a part of My bride.
Most of those in the church will not be ready for Me when I come for My bride. Many think they are saved, but they are not at all. They are serving pleasures, lusts, and are in love with themselves. They are consumed with this present world and its' selfish ways.
They are in love with money, success, and covet fame, position and power. They do not want to deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Me. They refuse to forsake all. Therefore, they will not be ready and will be left behind to face the great judgments that are about to come upon the world. Warn those that are lukewarm and have left their first love for Me, that if they do not repent, I will vomit them from My body.
I am preparing My bride. This is her hour of glory! I am purifying her. I am adorning her with My crowns and My jewels and My beautiful gowns. She shall be without spot or blemish. She will be dressed in My robes of righteousness – pure, clean and white. Who will come to Me and buy from Me what they so desperately need? It still is not too late. Repent, and return to
Me with all of your hearts, so that you do not perish with this evil world.
I am sending a mighty army from mainland China along the old silk trade routes and into the unreached nations that have been called the 10/40 window. When they finally reach Jerusalem, THEN KNOW that the wedding day is upon you. Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh. I will then come in the clouds and meet you in the air!
But, the remaining nations must still hear my gospel of grace. This will be the final and greatest harvest that the world has ever seen. Many hundreds of millions are waiting to hear the good news in China, in India, and in the other Buddhist and Muslim dominated regions of Asia, the near east and the middle east, as well as the poorest of nations in Africa and central and South America, as well as the hundreds of islands in the oceans of the earth.
I am shifting my focus to them. But you, O church of America and the West have prostituted yourself at every opportunity before every high place and idol shrine. You have substituted religion for My Presence. You shall surely perish when the fullness of My wrath comes upon Babylon. You shall be utterly burned with fire. You have heard and received the fullness of My love and grace, America. Still, you spit in My face and harden your hearts and refuse to turn back to Me.
Europe, you rejected Me and through Me out. For hundreds of years you provoked Me to wrath. You despised My people Israel and slaughtered them in a rage that reached to heaven after robbing the Jewish people and throwing them out of nation after nation.
You did this all in My Name!! How can you escape the wrath to come?! You cannot. Therefore, you shall receive and drink the fullness of My cup of wrath. Prepare to meet your God, O Europe! Europe, you shall receive the King that you desire to worship instead of Me. He is soon to come forth. When you receive his mark, you will be eternally damned.
O Babylon, You drove My people from their homes in Gaza, and then started upon Judea and Samaria in Israel. Therefore, I will drive you from your homes in direct proportion, of 10,000 to 1, as you have seen in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the Gulf Coast. There will follow two more judgments – one in a major city of Europe and one in the Arab nations in the middle east
before the end of this year.
I will shake California in a warning, and then there shall finally come the earthquake that I have mercifully withheld for so many years. Millions shall perish in the ensuing floods and the west coast of America shall be removed and fall into the ocean.
Boston shall experience a major attack upon a great school that once preached My gospel in ages past but has left the faith of their fathers – never to return again. It will never be rebuilt again. There shall be 5 terrorist attacks that will hit America in ever increasing destruction upon the major cities. Before the end of 2007, a nuclear "dirty bomb" will blow up in a major city in the
south of America.
New York City will receive 3 major judgments before the end of 2008. Each one will be more devastating than the last. One will shake the entire financial world and cripple the once invincible financial power of America. Millions will lose everything in a moment. It will make the crash of the stock market in 1929 look like a little thing in comparison.
America will no longer be the financial leader of the world. Another judgment will destroy a major stadium during a sports event. Yet another explosion will destroy nearly an entire Borough of New York. But for the sake of the Jewish people in New York, I will supernaturally spare them. After this, I will cause the largest aliyah (return) of My people (the Jewish people) from New York (and other regions throughout the developed world to Israel) in all of history. But only after the entire financial system that they are dependant on collapses will they all return to the land that I have promised them.
Tokyo, Japan. Hong Kong, China. Johannesburg, South Africa. Calcutta, India. Sidney, Australia. Chicago, Illinois. Los Angeles, California. Paris, France and many other cities will experience major catastrophies in the next five years. Millions upon millions will perish. The aids epidemic will devastate the population in Africa to half of its' present size in the next 4 years.
Many other incurable diseases, famine, drought and starvation will soon devastate the under-developed nations of the world in a way that has never occurred before. North Korea will launch a sudden nuclear attack and then be completely destroyed. Only the prayers of South Korea can stop it. Pakistan will become a leading center for world terrorism and will experience a nuclear
Israel is soon to once again send their planes and blow up the nuclear "plants" of Iran. Syria will soon collapse economically and be replaced by a fanatical Islamic government. A major coordinated Al Qaeda terrorist attack will blow up many historic places in Europe that were once bastions of true Christian faith, worship, art and music.
If America does not stand up now and defend Israel instead of forcing Israel from their land, we will continue to face the devastating consequences here. At the rate of 10,000 to 1, we will continue to face destruction of our homes and communities. For every Jewish soul that is touched – I will require 10,000 souls in America to account for it.
This is but a fraction of what is soon to come if there is not repentance and turning back to Me.
I will shake all the nations, and then after each disaster, I will pour out My grace and bring in a mighty harvest of souls for My kingdom. As birth contractions happen with a pregnant woman, so will these events happen ever faster and greater.
Each one will be more devastating than the last one, and each one will come closer and closer together. Haven't I said exactly this in My Word? Each disaster will judge and smash an idol that is worshipped by the world system of Babylon. I will then show Myself as the one true God over them all.
I will judge Hollywood and the entire movie industry for the millions upon millions of souls that they seduced and sent to hell. I will judge the news media and the television industry. I will judge the music industry. I will overturn the whole music industry in such a way that they can never pollute the world ever again.
I will judge the internet pornography industry. Whole internet computer systems will be permanently shut down. I will judge the abortionists and their supporters. I will judge and reverse the Supreme Court. For a short time they shall change the laws to fear and honor Me.
There is coming a revival of morality and religion in America as a result of these calamities, but it will be a false one for the most part. God will become popular in the culture, but not the Bible and My name (Jesus). It will be a false gospel message.
Not many will truly be born again. Only a remnant in My church will truly stay in right relationship to Me. When you see me take Billy Graham and Oral Roberts home, you will know that America and the West have received their last call. As I said in My Word, unless the Father would shorten these days, even the elect would not be saved.
The deception of "Christian religion" will grow so great, that it will be nearly impossible to recognize the true prophets and teachers from the false ones. Counterfeit miracles and false "signs and wonders" will come and deceive many. Churches will preach a "success and personal achievement" gospel. Even false healing meetings will come and actually produce real miracles, but they will not bring the people to Me.
The preaching of My supreme Lordship, the cross, My blood, holiness, and the fear of the Lord will become more and more rare, even more than it has become during the last 35 years.
Nevertheless, I have supernaturally preserved and kept My bride pure and faithful to Me. I will continue to do so. Most of My bride is in mainland China now. Many are in Asia, and Korea and India and Brazil and Russia and Kenya and Nigeria and throughout Africa.
Most of My bride is hidden away in their prayer closets and have been persecuted and driven out of the churches by abusive pastors and false prophets, ministry leaders, and oppressive government leaders. Many are in prison.
Some are daily dying of starvation and disease. Most of My bride has been beaten and left by the side of the road by the religious 'wolves in sheep's clothing'. They have been forgotten by the blinding greed of those hoarding their money and riches.
Only the Good Samaritans can even spot them and see them. The rest are blinded. Only a few really love My bride the way that I do.
My bride is being purified through the fire of many trials of afflictions and persecutions at this present hour. Those that walk in My love and embrace the cross are being separated and persecuted by the Laodicean church. Those that are truly anointed and bringing the pure Word from My throne are being thrown out of the pulpits of the land and off of 'Christian Television' in favor of the confession of the Laodicean church: 'I am rich, I am increased with goods and have need of nothing. I am healed. I am blessed.' Really???? Are you???? It doesn't look that way from My throne in heaven!
Beware of any teaching that is selfish and appeals to your lusts and feeds the love of money in your lives. THAT teaching does not come from heaven. That is not My voice. My blessings come through seeking first the Kingdom and My righteousness, not from heaping riches upon yourself while the rest of the world starves to death and dies and goes to hell because of your selfishness and greed. You will see when you stand before Me what the TRUE RICHES are. The souls of the lost are the jewels in the crown of My bride.
My worshippers and musicians, artists and those that carry special anointings have been almost systematically removed from ministries and church leaders in favor of what is popular and can bring in the most money and please the people. This is an abomination in My sight.
Watch and pray that you may be accounted worthy to escape the things that are coming upon this earth. Receive My grace through the refining fire of the Holy Spirit so that you can be a part of that beautiful lady and bride. I am preparing her! It still isn't too late! Join with her and take up your cross and deny yourselves and follow Me.
That is how to be TRULY blessed and healed and delivered and fulfilled in life! That is the only way that My gift of eternal life can shine into the darkness of the world around you"
"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty…Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
(1 Corinthians 6:17-18, 7:1)
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins,and that ye receive not of her plagues." (Revelation 18:4)
