"With an eye on the nuclear arms race led by its neighbor Iran, Saudi Arabia has arranged to have available for its use two Pakistani nuclear bombs or guided missile warheads"

Amazing Insight!

Reproduced from: Ellis Skolfied and Fishhouse Ministries. I reproduced this here because of its critical importance, and simply because people need to hear this! It's especially for the Revelation 3, last, Laodicean church of today. You need to come to terms with Daniel's days prophesies...

Besides being given an everlasting land covenant by God Himself, is there any actual proof in scripture that the Jews belong in Israel today? Is it possible that God has unsealed the book of Daniel, clearly showing we are now in Daniel's "time of the end"? We know God sealed the book, in no uncertain terms:

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. God followed this up with a crystal clear statement of fact: Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Most Christians are familiar with the following verse:2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The word that is generally translated as "day", in this verse, is "hemera". But that's not the only translation of this word. From Strong's, New Testament Greek Definition:

2250 hemera {hay-mer'-ah}from (with 5610 implied) of a derivative of hemai (to sit,akin to the base of 1476) meaning tame, i.e. gentle;TDNT - 2:943,309; n fAV - day 355, daily + 2596 15, time 3, not tr 2, misc 14; 389

What happens when we try this translation that each "time" is as a thousand years? Jews - both Messianic and non-Messianic - translation of the Hebrew idiom "time, times and half a time" is somewhat different than most of us Christians may have been taught.

Daniel 12:7: And I heard the man clad in linen, who was above the waters of the river, and he raised his right hand and his left hand to the heavens, and he swore by the Life of the world, that in the time of [two] times and a half, and when they have ended shattering the strength of the holy people, all these will end.

Now let's just consider for a moment, what if the Jews actually understand Hebrew idioms better than Christians do, and what if a "time" is equal to a thousand years? A couple of chapters earlier in this same prophecy we find a specific date pin in Daniel 10:1: In the third year of Cyrus, king of Persia, a word was revealed to Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar, and the word was true, and for a long time, and he understood the word and he understood it in the vision. You can Live Search an understanding of the third year of Cyrus to be 533 BC. Or first year of Cyrus as 536.

Now let's put it together: 2-1/2 "times" = 2500 - 533 = 1967. The "times of the Gentiles" in the holy city were fulfilled in 1967 when the Jews finally regained control. The end of the "shattering of the strength of the holy people".

Is this a mathematical accident that spans 2500 years? Does God offer proof that this isn't a one-trick pony? Daniel includes this same term in another verse. In Chapter 7 we see the successive lion, bear, leopard and 4th "terrible" kingdom beasts that would rule the holy land. Then in verse 25 we find: Daniel 7:25. And he will speak words against the Most High, and he will oppress the high holy ones, and he will think to change the times and the law, and they will be delivered into his hand until a time, two times, and half a time.

In the first verse of this chapter we are given another specific date pin: Daniel 7:1. In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream, and the visions of his mind [while asleep] on his bed; then he wrote the dream and said the beginnings of the matters.

You can Live Search the first year of Belshazzar to be 552 BC. 2500 - 552 = 1948 Israel came in from the wilderness of the nations declaring her independence. The end of the Gentile control of the holy land.

THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS. PROOF OF GOD. What a perfect seal God put on the book of Daniel!!! It wasn't until after the dates of 1948 and 1967 had passed, as we entered Daniel's "time of the end", that anybody (yes, including John Darby) could understand the simple math, and textual significance of these blessed verses. But then Daniel did promise that our knowledge would be increased in these times. Now wasn't that exercise more fun than some futurist fantasy? And particularly more fun than dead doctrinal formalism? And the above study regards FULFILLED PROPHECY, not futurist speculation or guesswork theology.

"The folly of interpreters has been to foretell times and things by this prophecy [Revelation], as if God designed to make them prophets. By this rashness they have not only exposed themselves, but brought the prophecy also into contempt. The design of God was much otherwise. He gave this and the prophecies of the Old Testament, not to gratify men's curiosities by enabling them to foreknow things, but that after they were fulfilled they might be interpreted by the event, and his own providence, not the interpreters', be then manifested thereby to the world. For the event of things predicted many ages before will then be a convincing argument that the world is governed by Providence."

 Merry Christmas from The Religion of Peace
Rock-throwing Palestinian Santa

Pray for our Christian brothers and sisters this Christmas

As the LBL Beast of Islam tries to destroy us

Gift From Islam: 6 Hurt in Philippines Christmas Day Church Bombing
"Eleven people were wounded Saturday when a bomb went off in a church during Christmas mass on a southern Philippine island known as a hotbed of Islamic extremism, the military said."

Christmas Eve explosions kill 32 people in Nigeria after two churches are targeted
"Explosions in Nigeria's central region killed 32 people on Christmas Eve and six people died in attacks on two churches in the northeast of Africa's most populous nation, officials said on Saturday."

AFP: Fresh attacks on Christians mar Christmas celebrations: "Although there were no immediate reports of attacks against Christians in the Middle East, bombings in other parts of the world highlighted the threats facing believers."

Revelation 6: 9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony. 10 They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters[f]—their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred—had joined them.

May God bless you as we celebrate His Son. Praise God for His gift of eternal salvation only possible through Jesus Christ - the Lord! Will next Christmas be celebrated in heaven? We are that close.

1 Thessalonians 5:

4But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

He's about to come back a second, and last, time as King of Kings! Praise the Lord God Almighty!
Be ready!
Matthew 24:
32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near [Israel: re-established May 14, 1948] . 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.
[comments mine]

Isaiah 66:

8 Who has ever heard of such things?
   Who has ever seen things like this?
Can a country be born in a day [Israel Independence Day - May 14, 1948]
   or a nation be brought forth in a moment?
Yet no sooner is Zion in labor [The Holocaust]
   than she gives birth to her children.
9 Do I bring to the moment of birth
   and not give delivery?” says the LORD. [Israel is about to be completely reborn, with enemies no more]
“Do I close up the womb
   when I bring to delivery?” says your God.

2010's world gone wild: Quakes, floods, blizzards
"This was the year the Earth struck back.

Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 - the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

'It just seemed like it was back-to-back and it came in waves,' said Craig Fugate, who heads the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency. It handled a record number of disasters in 2010."

Luke 21:
25 “And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. 26 People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory. 28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”

The media and the US administration are again colluding with the Israeli Left’s political leadership to overthrow the Netanyahu government.

"So as far as the supposedly moderate chief Palestinian negotiator is concerned, a peace deal in which Israel cedes Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem to the Palestinians as the Israeli Left desires will not be sufficient for the Palestinians.

Unless Israel also agrees to commit national suicide by accepting 7 million foreign Arabs as citizens, the Palestinians will continue to wage their war. So with or without a Palestinian state, as long as Israel exists, the Palestinians will continue to seek its destruction."

Of course the Ishmaelites will not be satisfied until Israel is completely destroyed. They feel that way because they, and all Islam, are controlled by the Father of Lies - Satan, the dragon.

Revelation 13:
2 This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority.

 France chooses sides in the next war

France to supply Lebanon with 100 anti-tank missiles: "Shipment to be delivered by February with no conditions attached, French official says; letter of confirmation sent to PM Hariri."

Does America need another distraction to delay collapse?

"South Korean troops geared up Saturday for artillery drills on a border island shelled by North Korea last month despite Pyongyang's threat to retaliate again, as Russia and China expressed concerns over tensions on the volatile peninsula.

The North warned Friday that it would strike even harder than before if the South went ahead with its planned drills. Four people died last month in the North's attack on Yeonpyeong Island near the tense sea border."

Christian's Death Verdict Spurs Holy Row In Pakistan : NPR: "When Asia Bibi offered her fellow farm hands water, they refused on the grounds that as a Christian she had made it impure. Both sides stoutly defended their faiths, and Asia Bibi was charged with blasphemy."

Peres: We're running out of time for peace: "President says delegitimization, growing radical Islam, Iran are making peace more urgent; window of opportunity won't stay open for very long."

Peace won't happen until Jesus Christ comes back. Looks to me like the final war of Ezekiel 38 is approaching rapidly.

Ezekiel 38:
"18 But this is what the Sovereign Lord says: When Gog invades the land of Israel, my fury will boil over! 19 In my jealousy and blazing anger, I promise a mighty shaking in the land of Israel on that day. 20 All living things—the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals of the field, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people on earth—will quake in terror at my presence. Mountains will be thrown down; cliffs will crumble; walls will fall to the earth. 21 I will summon the sword against you on all the hills of Israel, says the Sovereign Lord. Your men will turn their swords against each other. 22 I will punish you and your armies with disease and bloodshed; I will send torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur! 23 In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I am the Lord."

Matthew 24:
 32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout [Israel Independence Day - May 14, 1948], you know that summer is near . 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.

Irony alert: The unusually chilly global-warming summit - The Week: "As negotiators from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun to strategize ways to keep the planet from getting hotter, the temperature in the seaside Mexican city plunged to a 100-year record low of 54° F."

Take care of God's creation - yes, but this is the "global warming" un-Godly man should be concerned about:

2 Peter 3

5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

Hitler Rising

Iran’s nuclear program: whose problem is it really? | Middle East War and Peace:
"That’s notwithstanding, a surprise joint statement to the G20 in Pittsburg by U.K. Germany, France and the U.S. characterized the size and configuration of the Qom facility as “inconsistent with a peaceful program” and clearly intended for military use. It also characterized Tehran behavior as “serial deception”. By all accounts and by Ahmadinejad reaction to the statement, it would appear Iran was caught red handed. He subsequently stated that Iran’s failure to disclose the facility did not violate its IAEA obligations."

What Will Europe Do If Israel-Iran Options Fail? | Middle East War and Peace: "“There is a new Hitler rising. He lives in Iran, and he speaks Farsi,” Sandell said. “His objectives are the same as Hitler’s, to kill 6 million Jews. History will not forgive us if we fail to stop him in time...

A final settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians needs to be based on historical facts and international law. This means that we cannot accept historical falsifications and distortions of truth like the recent decision by UNESCO to classify Rachel’s tomb as a mosque.”"

"Iran is planning to place medium-range missiles on Venezuelan soil, based on western information sources, according to an article in the German daily, Die Welt, of November 25, 2010. According to the article, an agreement between the two countries was signed during the last visit o Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to Tehran on October19, 2010. The previously undisclosed contract provides for the establishment of a jointly operated military base in Venezuela, and the joint development of ground-to-ground missiles...

Russia decided not to sell five battalions of S-300PMU-1 air defence systems to Iran. These weapons, along with a number of other weapons, were part of a deal, signed in 2007, worth $800 million. Now that these weapons cannot be delivered to Iran, Russia is looking for new customers; according to the Russian press agency Novosti, it found one: Venezuela."

Russia may sell S-300 missiles to Venezuela, instead of Iran - analyst | Defense | RIA Novosti: "Russia's S-300 air defense systems, which Moscow refused to deliver to Iran following a new round of UN sanctions against the Islamic Republic, could be sold to Venezuela instead, a Russian arms trade expert said"

Miscalculation - Latest WikiLeaks: Hezbollah has military presence in Syria

What do you expect from the home of the Beast of Islam?

WikiLeaks cables portray Saudi Arabia as a cash machine for terrorists | World news | The Guardian: "'More needs to be done since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups,' says a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state [Clinton]. Her memo urged US diplomats to redouble their efforts to stop Gulf money reaching extremists in Pakistan and Afghanistan...

Militants seeking donations often come during the hajj pilgrimage [not that we'd ever connect Islam with terrorism, right?] – "a major security loophole since pilgrims often travel with large amounts of cash and the Saudis cannot refuse them entry into Saudi Arabia"."
