2020 Presidential Election

Is it possible that the current 2020 democratic presidential candidates are systematically being eliminated? We are just a little over a year away from the next presidential election and the playing field is one of complete chaos.

Recently Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack, raising questions about the future of his campaign. An article from CNN of all sources, is very telling:

We’ve recently learned two things about Bernie Sanders: that he had a heart attack, and he was not immediately forthcoming with the news. I wouldn’t go so far to call this a “cover-up,” not in the Age of Trump, where an entire presidency is a cover-up. But it’s dismaying, as it feels like political “business as usual” for Bernie to lack transparency, even for a few days, and even under these vulnerable conditions.

But the heart attack is now a political problem — for him and the Democrats. It may not be possible for Bernie to continue pushing himself in the way he’d have to push himself to be nominated and to beat Donald Trump.

Elizabeth Warren continues to loose credibility. She had previously identified herself as a Native American, when she really had negligible traces of Native American DNA in her. Now a Video appears to contradict Warren’s suggestion that school fired her over pregnancy.

Finally, and most amazingly, front runner Joe Biden may be on his way out. The current Trump impeachment hearings have some believing there is an ulterior motive in play; one to remove Biden and replace him with Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton remains shackled to her lust for power and revenge and now is signaling that she may enter the Democrats’ presidential contest when ex–vice president Joe Biden withdraws and serves as the fall guy for Ukraine’s collusion with her 2016 presidential campaign.  She realizes that her party’s frenzy to unseat President Trump will consume the ambition of the hapless halfwit to gain the Oval Office that rightfully belongs to her, as his familial dirty laundry is aired in an effort to find Trump impeachment fodder in Ukraine.

As Biden falters, Hillary attacks Trump and positions herself to enter presidential race

Somebody seems to know something, and that suggestion is not so far removed when one takes in consideration UK gambling site has more bets for Hillary Clinton winning Dem nomination than anyone actually running.

One thing is for certain, And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: Dan 2:21″. Yes, God is still in control and He never wins one round only to loose the next…. His sovereignty is eternal.

Will Trump serve a 2nd term in 2021 or will we hear the “Last Trump” of 1Co 15:52 before then…. We shall see.  

Glorious Light

God is light. Wherever He is, there is light.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1Jo 1:5

Light is unique as it displays the dual nature of the Father and Son. Light can be either a particle (Jesus), something seen by man, or something that cannot be seen by man in the form of a wave (God).

It is interesting to note that in Genesis 1:2, the earth, darkness and water already existed before the first day of creation was given in verse 3.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Gen 1:2

Now in verse 3, the six day creation begins and God says let there be light. In other words, let the existing light appear that was covered by darkness. Nothing was created on this first day of the six day creation.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Gen 1:3

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:4

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Gen 1:5

14th century Jewish drawing of creation. The Jewish people read from right to left and the first panel shows chaos! The second panel, a division of light from darkness!

If God is light and God is eternal, then light came before darkness as darkness is the absence of light. So how did the darkness in Genesis 1:2 get there. We know that God created darkness, but there is no mention of Him creating it here in the beginning.

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Isa 45:7

Why would God, who is light, choose to start His creation in darkness on an earth that was already without form and void? Darkness never represents good. Darkness and light are two sides of the coin. The darkness (absence of light) must have been the result of God withdrawing His own light or the light from angelic creatures being removed due to sin. Did you know that the glory of an angel is enough to light up the earth?

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. Rev 18:1

Lucifer was the most powerful angelic being created by God, and yet Jesus said He saw him cast down from his glory to profane.

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Luk 10:18

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Isa 14:12

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the Stones of Fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

The Word is Jesus and He is creator of all things. His Word will not return to Him void, yet the earth was without form and void….

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jhn 1:1

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Col 1:16

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isa 55:11

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Psa 18:30

Do you realize when God creates the new heaven and new earth after the millennial reign, that night and darkness will no longer exist? Because sin and death will be no more and God Himself will be the light of the world. So, if there was no sin and death yet beginning in Genesis 1:3, why did God have to use the sun and moon as light and divide the light into night and day for Adam and Eve….

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. Rev 21:23

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. Rev 22:5

 

 

Seventeenth of Elul

 

With the failure of Netanyahu to form a coalition after the April 9th vote, Israel is set to vote again on Tuesday, September 17th. In a rare, variable instance on the Hebrew calendar, that date also corresponds to the 17th of Elul. So why is the 17th so important you may ask…..

The word seventeenth or seventeen in the bible always relates to a negative picture. Man reigning in a negative light or an omen of evil that is to come. Noah’s flood started and ended on the 17th.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Gen 7:11

And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. Gen 8:4

Reigning in a negative light.

Ahaziah the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned two years over Israel. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin: 1Ki 22:51-52

In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign. Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD his God, like David his father.2Ki 16:1-2

 

And finally, on “On September 1, 1939, corresponding to the Hebrew date of 17 Elul, the Nazi Wehrmacht invaded Poland, launching World War II. The war would prove to be the deadliest conflict in history, resulting in the death of some 60 million people, including the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust…..”

So what prophetic result if any will be on this election date for Israel? Will Netanyahu’s reign come to an end? We shall have to wait and see.

 

Netanyahu

Netanyahu wins his 5th term as Prime Minister of Israel. As previously mentioned, Netanyahu is the only elected PM born in Israel since the founding of the state in 1948. If the criminal charges against him are dismissed, he will also soon be the longest serving PM in Israel’s history. Once again we see the hand of the Lord in electing state officials.

So what is next? President Donald Trump congratulated Netanyahu saying:

““The fact that Bibi won, I think we’ll see some pretty good action in terms of peace.” he said. “Everybody said, and I never made it a promise, ‘you can’t have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians.’ But I think we have a chance, and I think now we have a better chance with Bibi having won.”

And as expected:

“US National Security Advisor John Bolton said Wednesday that the US administration will roll out its long-awaited peace plan in the “very near future.”

Will we see the announcement of the Third Temple as part of the peace plan?? Is Netanyahu the man that will be in office when the antichrist confirms the covenant??

Pentecost is just around the corner and Netanyahu turns 70 on October 21st. The next couple of months are all but guaranteed to be exciting, perhaps even world changing. I have no way to prove it, but surely time is and has been speeding up in increments for at least two years now….

Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.  And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. Mark 13:35-37

He is coming

What If….

The writer of Hebrews tells us that we, the church, would be able to “see the day approaching”. That day would be the rapture and the end of the church age for those of us that are watching. Today in a sense, we know we are living in the last days by developments in Israel and around the world. But yet, we really don’t know exactly how close we are to His return.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching Heb 10:25

Interestingly, the word approaching, is used only two times in the bible. Number two; the number for divisions. The other reference is made in Isaiah chapter 58. If you did not already know, the book of Isaiah is like a mini bible. In other words, every chapter of Isaiah makes a reference to every book of the bible in order. The 58th book of the bible is Hebrews.

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins Isa 58:1 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God Isa 58:2

In chapter 58 of Isaiah, the Lord exposes the hypocrisy and shallow worship of His people; then and now. The word trumpet is used as a warning against sin rather than the blessed voice of God calling us home 1Co 15:52, 1Th 4:16.

Much has been said in the media about the Trump administrations “peace plan” for Israel, its’ borders, and the Palestinians. We don’t know the details yet, but surely would involve monetary grants to some of the surrounding neighbors of Israel and the changing of borders with Israel and their neighbors. The Trump team recently recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli land. The details of the plan probably will not be released until after the Israeli general election that will be held on April 9th of this year. Will Netanyahu remain in office, or will another prevail?

We know by bible prophecy that this covenant, if embraced, will not last as God never intended for the original land He gave to the Jewish people to be divided. And we know there are yet many regional prophetic conflicts waiting to be fulfilled most likely before the beginning of the Tribulation. Some of those below.

  • Isaiah 17 – The burden of Damascus
  • Isaiah 19 – The burden of Egypt
  • Jeremiah 49:34-39 – Prophecy against Elam
  • Ezekiel 38 – Gog, the land of Magog

What if part of Trump’s peace plan includes the building of the third temple? Secretary of state Pompeo, whom is a Christian, recently posted a video on his twitter feed of his recent visit to Israel when he met with PM Netanyahu. Towards the end of the short video, it shows a model of what would be the third temple. View the video here: https://twitter.com/SecPompeo/status/1109083029430067200

Everything is already in place for the establishment of the third temple. Establishing the third temple as part of the U.S. backed peace plan/covenant would certainly be enough to get the ball rolling and would give Christians a real, undeniable, confirmation that the day is approaching and the church age is coming to an end! Then would we not “exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching“? Exhorting means to strongly encourage, comfort, and strengthen. 

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate Dan 9:27

After much prophetic regional conflict occurs (listed above), Daniel 9 tells us the antichrist will confirm the covenant. The wording suggest a previous covenant (Trump’s peace plan?) had already been implemented to some extent (and obviously broken), and that he (the antichrist) would confirm it. To confirm something means to establish the truth, accuracy, validity, or genuineness of; to make valid or binding by some formal or legal act; sanction; ratify. You get the idea. The passage does not say the antichrist creates the covenant, but confirms it. 

Keep your eyes peeled after the April 9th election to see what may be in store with the upcoming U.S. peace plan. One can always hope……

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Tit 2:13

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Golan Heights – doorway to Damascus?

Trump signs proclamation recognizing Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights!

 

US President Donald Trump on Monday formally recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, saying the dramatic shift in American policy will help Israel defend itself against regional threats.

 

Trump on the move again bringing in the last day prophesies. Notice the proximity of the Golan to Damascus.

Elam Rising

Movement at the Bushehr power plant in Iran draws this prophecy closer to fulfillment.

Ali Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, announced on Monday that construction of the two new nuclear plants have begun in the southern Iranian city of Bushehr.

“Everything is moving ahead in an excellent manner,” Salehi was quoted as saying in the country’s state-controlled press. “I was in Bushehr two or three days ago and the Bushehr 2 and Bushehr 3 power plants are being constructed.”
