God’s Sovereignty Through the Ages, Part 2

Is this how things actually work, with God Almighty squared off against the powers of evil in the form of Satan? Are they “equal” opponents? Clearly, if we are to believe God’s Word, the answer is a resounding “NO!” God is supreme by an infinite amount! God is and remains always sovereign even when humans fail. God has absolute and final control over all situations that in any way impact His plans and purposes. God is fully sovereign, meaning that His plans and purposes always prevail. This is in spite of Satan and his angels and fallen humanity.

King Ahab and Jezebel, Part 3

Imagine being Elijah. Jezebel’s domineering demeanor and King Ahab’s cowardice toward Jezebel (whom he began to treat and run to as if she were his mother), and hatred toward God, brought about Baal worship in Israel big time. Jehovah’s prophets were scared for their lives, with some compromising their faith in God by kowtowing to Ahab in order to retain their positions. Others withdrew and hid in caves to be out of harm’s way.

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 4B

That’s huge! But this is also why I believe that this earthquake occurs prior to the start of the Tribulation. Consider the fact that if all mountains will be knocked down, steep places and walls will fall, what do you think that means for the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa mosques that currently sit atop the Temple Mount area? If the earthquake described is as large as the Bible indicates, then clearly anything that is standing on the Temple Mount before the earthquake will also be affected and will likely not be standing after the earthquake is over, right?

Moving Toward Peace and Safety Ultimately Means Destruction, Part 3

I believe the Antichrist will step up following Gog’s failed attempt to attack and conquer Israel (Jerusalem) because it will be a time when Israel will unfortunately see itself as vulnerable to world powers. Antichrist however, realizing that God gave them the victory, will rush into take advantage of their doubts. In essence, the world will be in shock and just how supernaturally Gog and his troops were defeated. It is clear from Ezekiel 38-39 that Israel does not lift a finger to help itself. The world will be stunned, but Antichrist will take full advantage of the situation. Instead of cowering because of God’s great victory, Antichrist will rush in and seemingly come alongside Israel, helping them believe that he (Antichrist) is the guy who can make sure that no one even tries to attack Israel for the next seven years (cf. Daniel 9:27). Unfortunately, Israel’s leaders will gladly agree to this, proving to God that they have no faith in Him.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 18

Verse 41 tells us that this king – the Antichrist – will invade the “Beautiful Land,” which is another term for Israel (see also Daniel 8:9). Antichrist has ultimately wanted to control Israel and the Temple Mount specifically. Notice that the text tells us that “Many countries will fall…” just like countries fell during the time of Hitler. In fact, every time there has been a change of “ownership” from one empire to another, those lands “fell” from the previous ruler’s control into the hands of the new rulers. This coming series of conflicts toward the end of the Tribulation will be nothing new. It’s the way the “game of thrones” has always worked in history.

The Growing Threat to Israel

I have to admit that I am a bit dumbfounded that there are so many people within Christendom who actually believe that Israel is the reason for the problems in the Middle East. These individuals do not believe that Israel should be supported and that God has nothing to do with that nation.

A Coming New Jewish Genocide?

It literally boggles the mind that so many people stand against Israel. Too many believe that it is Israel which is holding up the peace process in the Middle East. They believe that if Israel would just give the “Palestinians” what they want – or leave the area entirely – all would be well. Jewish leaders need to sit down at the bargaining table and talk seriously with Abbas and the Palestinians in order for peace to become a reality.

The problem is that the rhetoric coming from the mouths of people like Ahmadinejad and Abbas is nothing less than murderous. Most are aware of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad and his desire to kill all Jews. The world casts him off as a man with the ravings of a lunatic.
