Simeon’s Prophecy of Messiah

In the video below, actor Doug Whitley portrays Simeon the prophet, who approached Mary and Joseph when Jesus was presented to the Lord for consecration in the Jerusalem temple. Here is Simeon’s prophecy recorded in Luke 2:22-35:

22When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23(as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord”), 24and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: “a pair of doves or two young pigeons.”c

25Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.27Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 29“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. 30For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: 32a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” 33The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. 34Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

Israel’s True Borders

Click below to listen
to the complete audio message.
http://chirb.it/xK5Bes

Thirteen books of the Bible speak of the nation of Israel being restored to their land from the nations in which they were scattered. This prophecy became history in

1948 when the United Nations granted a homeland to the Jewish people and the Nation of Israel was reborn. However, the land that the State of Israel occupies today is only a fraction of the entire amount of land actually promised by God.

Yehovah God didn’t promise the Jewish people Pre-1967 borders, He promised them the entire land of Israel – from the Egyptian River as far as the River Euphrates. When Jesus the Messiah returns again, the Nation of Israel will have its land restored to the fullest.

Yehovah God’s eternal covenant with Abraham and his descendents:

“When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates— the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.” – Genesis 15: 17-21

Jesus the Messiah will return and restore the Jews to the land of Israel from all the nations in which they were scattered.

”However, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when men will no longer say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers. – Jeremiah 16:14-16

US Senate Supports Israeli Strike on Iran

Israeli Fighter JetsIsraelis were relieved to hear of last week’s near-unanimous passing of a US Senate resolution demanding full American support should Israel deem it necessary to attack Iran’s nuclear program. The resolution, which was voted for by 99 out of 100 senators, read:

“If the Government of Israel is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the United States Government should stand with Israel and provide, in accordance with United States law and the constitutional responsibility of Congress to authorize the use of military force, diplomatic, military, and economic support to the Government of Israel in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.”

The resolution went on to urge the Obama Administration to take its own steps to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon so that Israel does not reach the point where it feels compelled to take action. Last Wednesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) published yet another report casting suspicion on Iran’s nuclear activities, and validating concerns that the Islamic Republic seeks atomic weapons. The report noted that Iran has of late significantly upgraded its ability to enrich uranium to weapons-grade levels, and that work advances on a plutonium-producing reactor. Meanwhile, Iranian state television reported at the weekend that the Islamic Republic has fielded a “massive” number of mobile long-range missile launchers. The move is a clear warning against any action targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities. Should Israel or the US threaten Iran’s nuclear program, the missiles would presumably be launched at the Jewish state and American military bases in the Middle East in an overwhelming simultaneous attack

America’s Greatest Threat in 2013

Prophecy Watch_300 pxNational Security: America’s Greatest Threat in 2013

The president of the United States, Barack Obama, begins a second term in office in just a few days on January 20, 2013. For the next four years, President Obama and his cabinet of advisors must look for solutions to address the following problems and threats to national security:

  • Runaway financial deficits
  • Heightened fear and lack of national hope
  • Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons and potential violence
  • Tensions and eruptions of violence in the Middle East
  • The threat of China as a rising economic and military power (China holds in its hands billions of dollars in American debt and is challenging long-standing American supremacy in the region of Asia).
  • America’s $ 16 trillion debt as a threat to national security. Even the world’s most powerful nation can eventually spend itself into bankruptcy.

The most serious threat.

The most serious threat to America’s national security is the sins of the nation and the forsaking of God’s laws. America was original founded as a Christian republic. It’s founding fathers made an agreement with God to live by His laws. For over two hundred years, Almighty God has blessed and prospered the United States because of its adherence to the Ten Commandments and the Bible as a basis for our civil form of government. The majority of the framers of the U.S. Constitution were men who read the Bible and practiced its principles. They understood the character of the people of this nation had to be in line with God’s spiritual laws in order for the country to prosper.

But over the course of many decades now, America has backslidden and departed from its Christian character and has become primarily a secular nation – no longer believing in the living God that prospered it, and having no use for His spiritual and moral laws. As a result, the blessings of God have increasingly been lost, and the curses of God in Deuteronomy 28 have overtaken us.

But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you… – Deuteronomy 28:15

Because God holds a nation accountable who claims to be “Christian” by honoring and representing Him, the curses of breaking its covenant with God are being fulfilled.

Moses prophesied to Israel of the blessings and curses of obeying or breaking God’s covenant in great detail in the Book of Deuteronomy. I believe these same blessings and curses apply to America today. The curses America is experiencing today – economic problems, national catastrophes, and so on, are directly related to America’s forsaking of God.

Will America repent before it’s too late?

We don’t know. But the Word of God has given us the solution to all of our national problems in 2 Chronicles 7:14:

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Because God is merciful and patient, He promises to turn back the curses upon America if it will turn back to Him. Let us continue to pray for President Obama and the leaders of the United States to repent and return America back to God before it is too late. If we will humble ourselves and seek His pardon He will heal our land. Let us also examine our own lives and repent of our own personal sins. Every one of us has a personal responsibility to live by God’s laws if we would hope to be happy in this life and continue in His blessings. Amen.

Prophecy Watch_300 pxThe Great Whore is rising

“Come here; I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters….And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth…” – Revelation 17:1,5

We believe the Great Whore of Revelation 17 represents the Roman Catholic Church which, since its founding in 380 A.D., has corrupted the Christian church with idolatry, occult practices, pagan holidays, and all manner of abominations. It has also spawned the many corrupt Protestant denominations. That is why she is called the “mother” of all spiritual harlots. Eventually, she will unite every form of false spirituality into a one world religion that supports the coming Antichrist. We also believe the Pope (at that time) will be the False Prophet that causes the world to worship the Beast and take his mark of 666.

Catholic_Pope_Holding_MassAlready the Lutheran and Anglican churches (Episcopalean Church in the U.S.) are succumbing to the seductions of the Great Whore and committing spiritual fornication with her. After almost 500 years apart, Lutherans could be re-joining the Roman Catholic church. Since 2009, Anglicans have been able to reunify with the Roman church through groups called “ordinarates”, which allow them to keep many of the Anglican traditions while being absorbed into Roman Catholicism.

The larger Lutheran community is now following suit and also moving towards Rome. Back in 1999, the Lutheran World Federation signed a Joint Declaration with the Vatican overcoming the greatest obstacle on the matter of justification by faith. This would allow the Vatican to bring a significant nymber of Lutherans back under its authority. Watch as the Roman Catholic church continues to rise in power as the Great Whore of Bible Prophecy.

Police officer plots atrocities

Law EnforcementIn an increasingly sick society rife with the glorifying of evil, violence, drug abuse, and perversion, even our police officers who are paid to uphold the law, are breaking the law.

Recently, a shocking case appeared in court when a New York City police officer was arrested and charged with plotting to kidnap, rape, torture, then cook and eat his female victims. The officer used access to police files to gather detailed information on 100 potential victims. He was also allegedly commissioned to kidnap a woman for someone else. He responded back by email: “$5,000 and she is all yours.”

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be…unholy…fierce…” – 2 Timothy 3:1-3

Prophecy Watch_300 pxSandy Hook: Rachel Weeps For Her Children

Our prayers go out to the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy in Connecticut which left 20 people dead – 20 of them young children. May the Lord comfort their hearts and draw them closer to the God of all comfort, Jesus Christ.

U.S. President Barak Obama spoke about the sadness he feels regarding the age of the children who were killed last Friday morning, all of them being between five and ten years old. “They had their entire lives ahead of them…”, he stated. The president, who shares two daughters with the first lady, also pointed to the importance of Scripture during such tragic times, specifically quoting Psalm 147:3: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Sandy Hook mourners

Sandy Hook mourners

This senseless killing reminds us of the same type of demonic evil that was perpetrated on the children of Bethlehem by King Herod who slaughtered all the innocent male children in Judea in order to eliminate the threat of Jesus becoming the new king of the Jews. His plan did not succeed, however, because God warned Joseph and Mary to flee with their child before the soldiers arrived. It was a fulfillment of Bible prophecy written hundreds of years before:

“This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more.” – Jeremiah 31:15

Prophecy Watch_300 pxMany departing from the Judeo-Christian faith

“But he that endures to the end shall be saved.” – Matthew 24:13

Various recent polls show that America’s religious landscape has rapidly changed in the last five years. More and more Americans have been “turned off” to institutionalized religion. One fifth of the U.S. public and one third of adults under 30 no longer claim a religious affiliation. According to the Pew Forum, “they became unaffiliated, at least in part, because they think of religious people as hypocritical, judgmental or insincere.“

Religious Profiteers

Their issues with institutionalized religion, we have to admit is not unfounded. Religious failure in leaders has shaken the faith of millions for decades. Shocking, well-publicized scandals have weakened the faith of Americans. Leaders who preached against adultery engaged in fornicating affairs. Some who taught against the sin of homosexuality were found to be themselves homosexuals. Priests sexually abused children. Popular televangelists extorted millions of dollars from their faithful. Is it any wonder that most thinking people would say, “Why should I go to church?”

Despite all the criticism and arguments against religious deceit in religion today, Jesus declared that He would establish His church on a sure foundation, and the gates of hell would not be able to prevail against it.

“…I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” – Matthew 16:18.

The true church of Jesus Christ [Messiah] is alive and well and being prepared as a bride without spot or blemish for the second coming of Christ, the Bridegroom. The question we need to ask ourselves is, “Are we part of the true church of Jesus Christ? Or do we attend a church that is part of the apostate brand of Christianity that is so prevalent today? Does the example of our Christian lives draw people to Jesus, or repel them away from God?” Examine yourselves daily, confess your sins quickly to God, allow the Holy Spirit to transform you, and use the Bible to guide you in search for the truth.

Increasing Earthquakes

Hurricane Katrina 2005

After a powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Guatemala recently, at least 52 people were left dead, and thousands more without power. The Guatemalan president visited the affected area to declare three days of mourning. Sadly, nothing was said about repentance from sin. When tragedy happens in any country, the first thing anyone should do is seek God for forgiveness, since God controls the weather.

Earthquakes and other disasters are increasing in both frequency and severity across the globe. Jesus told his disciples that earthquakes would be one of the signs of the last days.

“Then said he to them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” – Luke 21:10-11

comment_smComment from Cygnet: “Wise words, Brother! It reminds me of the letter that our Lord directed Apostle John to write in in The Revelation to the church of Laodicea (Revelation 3:13-22). He admonishes the true believer to buy gold tried with fire (purify his or her heart) for the true believer to be clothed with clean white linen. (be clothed with righteousness – Revelation 19:8). In other words, we must line ourselves up with Christ and his provision. We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).”

Iran’s Implacable Hatred of Israel

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  and the nation of Iran have vowed to “wipe the State of Israel off the map.”

Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Iran's modern Hitler, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Germany's Adolph Hitler

Germany's Adolph Hitler

Like Adolph Hitler, they will accept nothing less than the complete destruction of the Jewish people. In the face of this implacable madness, Israel has no choice but to preemptively strike Iran’s nuclear capabilities in order to preserve its own safety. Christians and Jews must unite in prayer for Israel’s victory in the soon coming war.

Bible prophecy also tells us that Yahovah God will support Israel in their defense. Israel’s enemies may spew their relentless hate rhetoric and threats, but God, Himself, will destroy anyone who tries to harm His covenant people. Throughout history, God has demonstrated that He will protect the Jewish people and give them ultimate victory. Time and time again, the LORD has put Israel’s enemies to shame and He will do the same for Iran and any other nation that aligns itself with her. The Psalmist once wrote about this:

“Keep not you silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God. For, see, your enemies make a tumult: and they that hate you have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. Do to them as to the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison…Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burns a wood, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire; So persecute them with your tempest, and make them afraid with your storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek your name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yes, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that you, whose name alone is YAHOVAH, are the most high over all the earth.”  – Psalm 83:1-4; 9-10; 13-18

The prophet Ezekiel also predicted God’s judgment upon Israel’s enemies:

“You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, O Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I show myself holy through you before their eyes. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’  “ – Ezekiel 38:16; 22-23

Standing with Israel brings blessing

The LORD God has also promised to bless all those who stand by the Jewish people. He made a covenant with Abraham and his Hebrew descendents long ago:

“The LORD [Yahovah] had said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.’” – Genesis 12:1-3

Please continue to stand with Israel and pray for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem.
