Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? Mat. 12:22-26
Meanwhile while the world is distracted with Covid, vaccine mandates, and governmental tyranny, Biblical prophecy forges ahead.
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. Rev 9:14
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. Rev 16:12
Originating in Turkey, the Euphrates flows through Syria and Iraq to join the Tigris in the Shatt al-Arab, which empties into the Persian Gulf. This year, rainfall in southern Turkey where the Euphrates begins was the lowest in 30 years and for the past two years, the region has received only 50-70 percent of normal rainfall. Syria is currently facing its worst drought in 70 years.
The 1,700 mile-long Euphrates is the main source of drinking water as well as powering three hydroelectric plants that produce electricity for about three million people in Syria. Two dams in northern Syria face imminent closure which would leave about three million people without any access to electricity. The water level at the Tishrin Dam, the first into which the river falls inside Syria, has dropped five meters and is currently about ten centimeters above “dead level” when the turbines stop producing electricity.
1¶[[To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.]] Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
Perseverance – used just one single time in the Bible and means to be persistent.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand…… Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Our nation is at the cross roads, almost to the point of no return, but I still strongly believe as I wrote many times in 2020 that Justice is coming and not just for the faulty election, but Justice on many fronts that will shake this nation to its core.
Make no mistake, I am not saying that the enemy will be defeated, ushering in a period of peace and prosperity. No, not at all. The Bible clearly shows us we are living in the final moments before the Tribulation period and all of those prophecies will be fulfilled exactly as the Word says. Life as we know it will never be the same, but I do believe we will see God’s Justice handed down and an outpouring of the Holy Ghost even if just for a very short period.
There is an evil spirit(s) that has a hold on this nation and we must be in constant prayer/perseverance to overcome its hold. This nation is tired and worn down just as the enemy wants it to be, but now is not the time to become complacent and conform to the demands, because the more you comply, the more they will take. Christians, step up and let your voice be heard peacefully. Pray and pray some more for God’s mercy and Justice on this nation.
We must never forget, that when God moves, it is always in His timing and not when we so desire. Sarah was 90 years old and Abraham 100 when they received the promised birth of Isaac. The first use of the word ‘justice’:
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Gen 18:19
The light of the world is still with us; just keep walking.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
The latest military operation against Hamas by the IDF is called ‘Guardian of the Walls‘. It is an interesting choice of words. Soon in the future, Israel will have an enemy that says “And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, Eze 38:11“. Is Israel removing some of those “walls” now?
We certainly saw Psalm 120 play out in a prophetic way for 2020 as we suffered “from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue, Ps. 120:2″ in every way possible. So what does 2021 hold?
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,From whence cometh my help.2 My help cometh from the LORD,Which made heaven and earth.3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:He that keepeth thee will not slumber.4 Behold, he that keepeth IsraelShall neither slumber nor sleep.5 The LORD is thy keeper:The LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.6 The sun shall not smite thee by day,Nor the moon by night.7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:He shall preserve thy soul.8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in From this time forth, and even for evermore. Psalm 121
Perhaps Psalm 121 is telling us now that the church age is coming to a close, the Lord is turning His attention back to Israel.
