Finding Peace in an Evil and Lawless World………
25 September 2021
How do we calm our hearts amid the lawlessness and great wickedness of our day? As violence explodes in our newsfeeds, does it not set off alarm bells within our souls?
The disastrous events in Afghanistan surely reflect the murderous intent of the globalists to enslave all the people of the world.
Our towns and cities have been turned into virtual prisons and our country is virtually closed.
President Biden's surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban speaks to the dangers in this world for believers as well as to the nearness of the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel 38-39, and the time of Jacob’s trouble.
We would, and many have, surely fall into great despair if it were not for Scripture and for the assurance it provides regarding eternity.
The Bible long ago predicted that evil, anarchy, and widespread deception would prevail in the days leading up to His return. Although we never thought it would be this terrible before the Tribulation).
The New Testament draws our attention to a glorious eternity that begins with Jesus' imminent appearing to take us to the place He's preparing for us (John 14:1-3).
Psalm 37:1-20 has long been the go-to passage when current events threaten to consume the human soul with anger.
The fact that the Lord sees all we see, and much more, assures us that in His perfect time He will dramatically intervene in human history to bring judgement upon this Christ-rejecting world.
This passage, although written for the Jewish people, hints at the glorious inheritance ahead for all the Lord's saints, including us!
In order to guard our sanity amid the chaos, we need an outlook that values our future in eternity over the fleeting things here below.
What we believe about eternity matters. It is imperative we grasp it fully.
That's why what we believe about eternity matters more now than at any previous time in the history of the church, or the world for that matter.
The New Testament repeatedly points us to Jesus’ appearing as our imminent and joyous expectation. It assures us that we as believers will not face the wrath of the day of the Lord, which includes all of the Tribulation period (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).
The Rapture is just the beginning of our exciting adventure into an everlasting forever.
After a grand celebration in Heaven (Revelation 19:1-10), we will return with Jesus and reign with Him for a thousand years. Such a spectacular hope puts our earthly experiences into a new light, does it not?
After the Millennium, we will spend eternity in the most glorious city imaginable, the New Jerusalem, and we will explore the many wonder and sights of the new earth and cosmos as we continue to reign with our Saviour.
What we believe about our future hope truly matters because therein lies the biblical secret to our peace as we journey through this vale of tears.
Jesus is our hope, our only refuge in times of despair as we watch the globalists continue to seize control of governments around the world including Australia.
Our hope does not rest in the church as many Christian leaders claim today, but in its Head.
Nor can we find any comfort in hoping that things will get better in this world; the walls will continue to close in on freedom-loving people across the globe and the tyranny of our day will grow worse in the days and weeks ahead.
Normal is not coming back to this world, Jesus is.
House Finally Approves Iron Dome Funding………
25 September 2021
The so-called progressive “Squad” [pictured above] of Democrats, who aimed to deny $1 billion in funding for the life-saving Iron Dome missile defence system, were overwhelmingly defeated in a bipartisan 420 – 9 vote on Thursday.
“Thank you to the members of the US House of Representatives, Democrats and Republicans alike, for the overwhelming support for Israel and for the commitment to its security,” said Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in a statement.
“Whoever tries to challenge this support received an unequivocal answer today. The people of Israel thank the American people and their representatives for their steadfast friendship.”
The extremist progressive wing of the Democratic Party tried to unravel the consensus around Israel on the basis of lies and pure anti-Semitism. This is a warning light for Israel and for the Jewish community.
The strong alliance between Israel and the US has won out over them for now, but a constant vigilance is required.
Halting Iron Dome Funding would have been a ‘Pyrrhic Victory’ for the Radical Left, as without this protection Israel would be forced to enter Gaza in any future conflict killing and injuring thousands!
Congress to Introduce Bill Making 2-State Solution Official US Policy…….
24 September 2021
A Democratic congressman, pushing for a two-state solution and calling for an end to the “occupation,” ignores not only historical truth, but also the Palestinian Authority’s policy to encourage and support terror attacks against the Jewish State.
Congressman Andy Levin [pictured above] Democrat-Michigan, was set to introduce a bill at the end of this week that would make the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict official US policy.
The Democratic congressman, pushing for a two-state solution with its capital in “East Jerusalem” and calling for an end to the “occupation,” makes no reference to the Palestinian Authority’s pay-for-slay policy; the fact the “West Bank” — Judea and Samaria — is the biblical homeland of the Jewish People; that a two-state solution was declared in 1947 but the Arab countries attacked the fledgling Jewish State; and that never in history was there an Arab Palestinian state.
if Congress passes and President Joe Biden signs the “Two-State Solution Act,” American policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will formally state:
— “[that] only the outcome of a two-state solution can both ensure the state of Israel’s survival as a democratic state and a national home for the Jewish people and fulfil the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a state of their own.”
— “that the West Bank [Judea and Samaria], including East Jerusalem, and Gaza are occupied territories and should be referred to as such consistently in official United States policies, communications, and documents.”
— “that the establishment of Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories is inconsistent with international law.”
— “that settlement expansion, demolitions of Palestinian homes, revocations of residency permits, and forced evictions of Palestinian civilians by Israel impede the establishment of a Palestinian state and violate the human rights of the [Arab] Palestinian people.”
“To move us towards a better future for Israelis and Palestinians, the United States needs to change our policies in a way that accelerates progress and discourages steps that hinder it. We must work collectively to end the occupation and inspire a peaceful, democratic solution,” Levin tweeted Tuesday evening.
What planet is such a person actually living on?
Persia and Ezekiel 38……
25 September 2021
Iran [Persia] had some bold and foolish words for Israel this week. Iranian parliament speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf [pictured above] said, “the Israeli was supposed to be able to approach our front line in Iraqi Jalula, a kilometre from our border”.
“But today he fears our presence in the Golan a few kilometres from its borders…. He wanted to conquer Tehran, and now he is in this situation…. It proves the greatness of the Islamic Revolution.”
The threat is real and fits directly into an Ezekiel 38 framework, already in place and waiting.
Iran suspected of damaging watchdog cameras to cover up 90% weapons grade uranium enrichment…….
September 24, 2021
The gaps in the nuclear watchdog’s coverage of Iran’s nuclear operations were not assessed by the IAEA director Rafael Grossi [pictured above] when he announced in Tehran some days ago that he and Iran had agreed to restore the cameras installed at sensitive sites.
He did admit that some were damaged by mysterious explosions or were disabled, leaving a monitoring gap of several months.
Grossi did not accuse the Iranians of deliberately damaging the cameras. He insisted however, that for him the new deal with Tehran was “a stopgap measure to allow time for diplomacy.”
However, reliable sources report that the cameras at the Natanz and Fordo uranium enrichment facilities are still not working.
The new head of Iran’s nuclear agency Mohammed Eslami admitted later: “A large number of the cameras had been shut off.” No explanation was offered.
American and Israeli nuclear experts are convinced that they were deliberately vandalised to conceal the next stage of Iran’s progress towards weaponising its nuclear program.
Now free of international oversight, that program is believed to have used the gap in surveillance to clandestinely jump its uranium enrichment from 60 percent grade to 90 percent, tantamount to weapons grade.
This stage of enrichment is easier to conceal than the early stages and has most likely been moved to small, secret sites not covered by the 2015 nuclear accord that the Biden administration is seeking to renegotiate.
Biden went further this week stating that the U.S. is perfectly willing to reinstate the entire [unsigned] agreement if Iran does so too.
In addition, the broad information gap of several months generated by disabled cameras leaves uncharted territory for any future diplomatic process with Iran alone in command of the true facts and no means of verification.
Time is RAPIDLY running out on this dangerous situation – and Israel has sworn to disallow Iran to achieve nuclear weapon status [if she hasn't already?].
Action will soon be imperative and it is probably a lot closer than anyone can imagine?
