Bill Salus    ~    Nuclear Showdown In Iran: The Ancient Prophecy Of Elam

The major powers have been dealing with Iran in recent years about nuclear armaments.  Despite the talks, Iran is on the verge of becoming a nuclear power.  Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel, is extremely concerned.  Ayatollah Khamenei desired to have even more potential to make more bombs.  Iran’s goal is to wipe Israel off of the map.  Iran, ironically, is recently receiving a strong impetus of Christianity through miracles, healings, visions and dreams.  Iran attacks Christianity and Christianity grows.  Ezekiel 38 depicts Magog (Russia, Persia/Iran and other allies) attacking Israel.  Persia became Iran in 1935.  Elam is in southwest Iran and accounts for one fifth of the nation.  Elam is referred to in Jeremiah 49.

Dual Prophecies Of Iran

Judgment on Elam

Jeremiah 49

34 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, 35 “Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘Behold, I will break the bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
36 Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.
38 I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says theLord.

39 ‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days:
I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord.”

The 7 “I Wills” of Elam

  1. break the bow of Elam, The foremost of their might,
  2. bring the four winds From the four quarters of heaven,
  3. scatter them toward all those winds, (worldwide)
  4. cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies And before those who seek their life,
  5. bring  disaster upon them, My fierce anger,
  6. send the sword after them Until I have consumed them,
  7. set My throne in Elam,
  8. destroy from there the king and the princes,
  9. And, (in the latter days) bring back the captives of Elam.

Iran’s nuclear position today and their ICBM’s can be harmonized with this passage.  Elam was the son of Shem and grandson of Noah.  The Elamites were warmongers (Genesis 14:1-9) and expert archers (Isaiah 22:1-6).  Perhaps the Lord will break Iran’s (Elam) nuclear capabilities.  Benjamin Netanyahu’s two concerns are: 1)a nuclear weapon, and 2)ICBM’s.  Will God use Israel to take out their nuclear program?  There will be refugees from Elam en mass.  Is that a hint of a nuclear disaster?  Israel struck Iraq’s nuclear facility in 1981, and Syria’s nuclear facility in 2007.  Iran has nuclear sites in Syria.  This all gives more credence for Israel to attack Iran.  The world community is concerned about Iran closing the Strait of Hormuz and cutting off the worlds’ oil supply.  Other Islamic nations are concerned about Iran’s ambitions, which could start a nuclear arms race.  Furthermore, Iranian radiation is a threat to GCC water security and desalinization plant operations.

Ayatollah had a 9 point plan to eliminate Israel.  Iran is planning to strike Israel if Israel attacks them.  We are in the final hour and the Lord is accomplishing his will.

Many Iranians who previously hated Christians are becoming saved.  God is performing miracles for them.  Jesus, and not the local Imam is healing Iranians from illness.  Iran is receiving Christianity in a greater way than any other nation in the world.

Christians need to get prepared for the end times, because once apocalyptic events commence, there will be no turning back or stopping them.

Bill Salus    ~    The Roots Of Mideast Conflict

There are 26 speakers and 54 messages in this prophecy conference.  We are living in fascinating times.  We are living well within the end times.  The greatest sign that we are living in the end times is that all these signs are converging rapidly upon us.  Christ’s return is very immanent.  Bill has a website that updates prophecy on a daily basis:  ProphecyDepot.com   Jeremiah 49:34-39 deals with prophecies that have been overlooked.  There are prophetic implications regarding Iran and nuclear armaments.

The Roots Of The Mideast Conflict

What Believers Need To Know

Why Americans Need To Prepare

The hostilities experienced in the Middle East between the Arabs and Jews go back nearly 4,000 years to God’s covenant with Abraham.  Due to the inherent blessings contained within this covenant, the infamous Bible characters Hagar, Ishmael, Esau, Moab, Ammon, and Amalak coveted the rich contents of this covenant.  They came to hate the Hebrews, who were heirs of this blessed covenant.  Ultimately, they conceived a cleverly disguised religious package giving it license to unleash itself in a holy war.  The Jihad, as it is often labeled, presently underway in the Middle East, finds its justification in Islam, but its roots are in this longstanding hatred.  There is a spiritual nature to this conflict.  When diplomacy fails, wars begin, and diplomacy has failed.  Psalm 83 (written by Asaph, King David’s worship leader) will resolve the Israeli Arab conflict.  Asaph was also a prophet and a seer.  Psalm 83 tells us that the nations around Israel will form a confederacy against them, and their goal is to destroy Israel.  This Psalm refers to the Edomites, Ammonites, Amalakites and Assyrians.  Isis could also be part of Psalm 83.  Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, which means one who wrestles with God and prevails.  Esau fathered the Edomites in southern Jordan.  Olam Ebah  Ancient Hatred – Perpetual Enmity.  This is a hostility that will not go away.  The Edomites originated this hatred, referred to in Ezekiel 35:5.  The Edomites felt cheated in the Abrahamic Covenant.  Genesis 12:1-3  Abraham was promised an innumerable amount of descendants.

The perpetual enmity between Edom and Israel is mentioned again in Numbers 20:20-21.  Jeremiah and Obadiah prophesied that Edom would be despised among men and small among the nations.

Islam renews the ancient hatred of Israel. Israel is born as a nation on May 14, 1948.  The Arabs fight them immediately.  The Arabs fight them again in June, 1967.  The third transgression was the 1973 Yom Kippur War.  Perhaps the fourth and final transgression will be in Psalm 83.  Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran.  Zechariah 12:2  “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.”  Israel will have initial success against their enemies.

Joseph Farah    ~    God’s Mideast Peace Plan

Joseph Farah works for World Net Daily (WND), which presents a Christian and lover of Israel perspective.  Prophecy is what led Joseph to the Lord.  Hal Lindsey’s Late Great Planet Earth led to Joseph’s salvation.  Joseph was formerly a long haired radical communist and hippie.  He ran with the likes of Bill Ayers and Jane Fonda.  He started riots on college campuses.  Joseph moved from New York to Los Angeles to pursue a career in journalism.  Joseph interviewed Hal Lindsey about his new book “Countdown To Armageddon.”  He has also worked with Jack Van Impe, Rush Limbaugh and Greg Laurie.  Joseph’s goal was to bring the Christian worldview to the news in a bigger way than it was ever done before.  WND.com is the largest Christian website in the world.  WND books are producing more New York Times best sellers than any publisher in the world.  WND is also producing movies.  Joseph Farah is also an Arab who loves Israel.

God’s Mideast Peace Plan – the Real Mideast Peace Plan.  Genesis 17:18-21, 21:17-21, 25:8-9, 17-18  Joseph considered the lives of Abraham, Sarah, Ishmael, Hagar and Isaac.  Ishmael’s descendants were spread out from Egypt to Assyria.  Isaiah 19:1-10  This is the focus of Joseph’s message.  Jesus is going to visit Egypt, bringing both judgment and salvation.  The Nile River will dry up.  Sudan and Ethiopia are building a dam that could threaten Egypt’s survival in 2017.  Egypt is building an airstrip in order to bomb the dam.  Egypt is totally dependent upon the Nile River- without the Nile River there is no Egypt.  Egypt is already facing major water shortages.  The Greek historian Herodotus called Egypt the gift of the Nile River.  The Nile River is over 4100 miles long and flows south to north.  Ezekiel 29:2-5, 9-10, 30:4-9  Egypt previously built the Aswan Dam which has further dried up the Nile River.  Isaiah 19:11-25  Egyptians are studying Hebrew en mass.  It is a phenomena.  Jesus is coming to Egypt to save believers.  (Egyptian Christians are the Copts or Coptic).  Coptic Christians have a fascination for Isaiah 19.  The Coptics have been finding oasis in Egypt for their water.  Isaiah 19 tells us that Egypt, Israel and Assyria will all be one big happy family in the end.

Joseph expounded on Joel Richardson as a cutting edge author, combining prophecy with current events in his books in a profound way.

Dan Goodwin    ~    2520: God’s Prophetic Number

Dan Goodwin is a full time evangelist and prophecy teacher.  Now, 99% of his ministry is Bible prophecy.  His calling is to warn the saints that Jesus is coming back soon.

God sealed many truths until the time of the end.

Revelation 19: 9-11 King James Version (KJV)

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Jesus returns at the end of the 70th week of Daniel, at the end of the Tribulation Period, on a white horse, carrying the title deed to the planet earth, He ends the battle of Armageddon, He comes to the Mount of Olives, goes through the Kidron Valley, and into the eastern gate of Jerusalem.  Jesus starts the millennial reign, the kingdom age, and takes possession of the planet earth.
********************
Dan went into a review of the seven Levitical feasts that are all in Leviticus 23.  These feasts are all of the Lord, and are His prophetic calendar.  Please refer to the 2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 52, also hosted by Dan Goodwin, for a review of these seven feasts.  Dan Goodwin believes the Old Testament will last for 4,000 years, the New Testament will last for 2,000 years, and the millennium will last for 1,000 years for a total of 7,000 years.
Dan said he knew when Christ was coming.  He is coming on the day appointed.
Dan revealed the law of the harvest as well, also on Part 52 of this conference.  He reviewed three different calendars as well.
Dan believes that Revelation 4:1 is the rapture of the church.  Many theologians agree with this view.  He also believes the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 represent seven different church ages within the time of the church.  [I do not agree with this understanding because the seven churches are seven ACTUAL churches.  The Bible does not tell us that they represent seven different periods of history.  When the Bible is silent, we should be also].
The Tribulation Period is not about us.  It is about the 70th week of Daniel, the Holy City, the Tribulation and the children of Israel.  Dan believes the rapture will happen during a new moon in the fall.
The purpose of the seven feasts is to prepare people to dwell with the Lord.  These feasts also are indicative of prophetic events.  
Dan reviewed the three major Sabbaths in the Bible and the Year of the Jubilee, also mentioned in Part 52.  Dan then expounded on the seventy weeks of Daniel.  
In the year of Jubilee, the land goes back to the original owner.  Dan believes the next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.  
The Tribulation Period is not mentioned in the Bible as seven years.  It is two halves of 42 months each.  There are 1260 days in each half.  There are 2520 days in the Tribulation Period.  Dan believes Christ will come in the fall on the Day of Atonement on a white horse.  He will return on the new moon.  Christ’s return revolves around the barley harvests.  
Dan then attempted to endorse 2520 as a significant prophetical number.  I did not agree with his computations.
As summed up in Part 52, I thought that Dan Goodwin has a tremendous burden for Christ’s return and for the lost.  He does a great job revealing the relevance of the Levitical feasts, the Sabbaths, and the Year of Jubilee with Bible prophecy.  He is, however, too dogmatic for me, and skirts the issue of date setting, although he does not set an actual date.

Things To Come:  The Shemitah’s Harbingers & What Lies Ahead    ~    Jonathan Cahn

Jonathan Cahn has a gripping conviction about the sin of our nation and about the need for national repentance.  God is not looking at the White House, He is looking at the church house.  II Chronicles 7:14   “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Jonathan Cahn wrote the Harbinger, and now focuses on the Mystery of the Shemitah.  Cahn claims this 3,000 year old mystery holds the secret of America’s future, the world’s future and your future.  His third book is The Harbinger Decoded, and reveals all of these things fulfilled prophetically.
*********************
The Shemitah begins where the Harbinger leaves off.  George Washington placed his hand on the Bible and warned our nation that a disobedient nation could never expect favor from God.  America has rebelled against God, and we are witnessing the removal of His blessing.  A national prayer was given by Washington in what we know today to be ground zero from 9/11/01.  The calamity returned to the same place where the nation was dedicated to God.  Cahn points out the Sycamore tree that was struck down, as well as all of the other buildings during 9/11, EXCEPT the little stone chapel where America was dedicated to God.  This was a miracle.  The Sycamore tree actually saved the chapel.  God was attempting to wake up America, and seeking for America to repent and return to the Lord.
*********************
Cahn is speaking on things to come.  Things related to the Harbinger and to the Shemitah.  What has happened since 9/11?  Our nation’s apostasy has accelerated.  The harbingers have not stopped but have progressed.  We will face revival or total judgment.  The second harbinger in the book is the sign of the terrorists.  The Assyrians attacked Israel in 722 B.C.  Isis is now attacking the world and America.  They are the offspring of Al Qaeda.  The Assyrians and Isis both come from Syria and Iraq.  Both are cruel nations, having the same capitol site of Nineveh.  They both mutilate and decapitate their victims, and place them on display.  A Biblical sign of judgment is a tree withering away with broken branches.  America is spiritually withering away.  Cahn mentioned a tree dying and the moon turning blood red a couple of years ago, coupled with this second harbinger of judgment.  The third harbinger was our determination to rebuild, and make the Twin Towers bigger, stronger and greater.  This was done in pride and arrogance.  It is indicative of the spirit of the Tower of Babel.  The rising and falling of towers is related to the rising and falling of nations.  The new tower has Isaiah 9:10 at its’ base, the verse that alludes to a nation building a tower in defiance of God.

Isaiah 9:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

Our leaders thought this was an appropriate verse for the occasion, but actually it infers God’s judgment on nations who build towers rather than turn to Him!  We think we will come back with our own power, and not that of God.  President Bush spoke on this and said:  “…we will rebuild and we will come back stronger.”  -conspicuously absent was any mention of God.

The Seven Year Mystery.  The Mystery Of Sevens.

Cahn expounded on the Shemitah, and how the land was suppose to rest for one year out of every seven in Israel.  When God judged Israel, all seventy years for which they disobeyed the Lord were collected together when they were taken captive by the Babylonians.  He attempts to show that the same thing could be happening to us as well.  In the last forty years, there have been five times our finances have been shaken- 1973, 1980, 1987, 2000, and 2007.  There are seven years between them all.  Cahn compares previous economic collapses in American history to the Shemitah.  Cahn contends that the Bible ordains most economic crashes in world history to happen in September and October.  9/11 happened during Shemitah.

If America does not turn back to God, then the age of America as we know it will end.

Cahn claims the Shemitah marks the shaping of great world events like World Wars I and II.  It marks the rise and collapses of empires.  The Tribulation Period is likewise seven years.

Every seven Shemitahs in Israel is fulfilled by the Year of Jubilee.  Everything, your land and possessions are restored.  Cahn went into several examples of the Lord fulfilling His will after seven Shemitahs.  There is a significant Shemitah coming up on September 2015 through September 2016.  This is the year of the Jubilee.  Cahn believes this last year represents judgment, and the beginning of the end of the American age, as Russia just passed us as the greatest nuclear power, and China surpassed us as the greatest economic power.  We have also observed the end of the Biblical definition of marriage during this time.  Christians in America are being persecuted now to a large degree.  Cahn brought up the Pharaoh’s dream in the Bible of the seven years of plenty and the seven lean years.  God warned Egypt of what was coming.  This was the first recorded Shemitah in the Bible.  Could the Lord be warning America the same way?  Cahn showed the audience pictures of two cows that each had the number seven on their heads.  They were born at the opening of the Shemitah.

The Shemitah is related to death.  The darkening of the sun can be a sign of judgment.  There are two eclipses scheduled for 2015.  The harbingers are converging with the Shemitahs.  Cahn thinks the single tower replacing the Twin Towers will be a sign, and seals God’s judgment upon America.  We are no longer speculating about prophecy, we are now living in prophecy.  We are observing a great shaking of the global order, involving the collapse of the American economy, the removal of blessing and prosperity, and it may come with famine and the cutting off of our infrastructure.  Unbelievers and those outside of His will should fear.  Jesus is our only refuge and Savior.  If there is going to be a revival, then a great shaking must precede it.  After 9/11 there was no revival because there was no repentance.  Come what may, we will serve the Lord.  Christians have a wonderful opportunity to shine at this time.

Note:  Jonathan Cahn has a great zeal about repentance, judgment, apostasy, blessings and the last days.  He rightly encourages our sin sick nation to repent.  I love his fervor for his God.  He is very unique, however, when he applies God’s plan for Israel to the United States of America and all other nations.  He considers events that happen during the “Shemitah” years, trees falling, and occurrences happening in the order of seven years as harbingers of judgment, yet I am not sure he is correct in doing so.  We all feel God’s hand of judgment on America, yet I do not believe that we can apply all the same theology and precepts  to our nation, as when the Lord worked with Israel.  Actually, when he displayed pictures of two cows with the number seven on their heads, I felt very uncomfortable.  We must ALWAYS ask ourselves “Does this Bible study go right along with the truths that are found in the word of God?”

Blessings, Pastor Steve    

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 49

Donald Perkins    ~    Interview/Hagmann & Hagmann

Evangelist Donald Perkins has been speaking on prophecy for thirty four years.  He is the founder of According Two Prophecy.org.  Donald Perkins has a new DVD “Rejoicing Through The Book Of Revelation.”  The end of Revelation is eternal bliss for the redeemed.  The believer is promised a blessing for reading, hearing and studying the book.  Revelation is a book of blessing.  We are in the end times.  Jesus gave us indicators that would mark His return.  Wars, rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes, fearful signs from the heavens.  As we near the end times, the world will look bleak, it will look worse, BUT the only answer for the world is Jesus Christ.  Israel is the time piece in God’s prophetic time clock.  Jesus:  “When these things begin to take place then look up because your redemption is drawing nigh.”  Christians should see the negative news in a positive light.  It is a motivator to reach a dying world.  The American church has lost its influence in our culture.  The church is too comfortable.  Africa is much more hungry for the Gospel.

Donald Perkins believes the rapture is at hand, and the next prophetic event to happen.  Heaven will have no sickness, sorrow or death.  We need to pray for peace in Jerusalem.  The only way for that to be answered is for Christ to come back.  America has turned its back on God, even though we were founded on Godly principles.  Our relationship with Israel is awful.  This should concern all Christians.  If we do not treat Israel right, we will be judged.  (Genesis 12:3).  We have killed 55 million babies and we have redefined marriage.  Now we have poor leaders without common sense who cannot make the right decisions.  Donald Perkins believes that America is under judgment.  Pastors need to expound on Bible prophecy.  It creates a hunger in the church for people to go out and evangelize.  It makes you a soul winner and helps the church to grow.  Jesus is the only way to salvation.  John 14:6.  Acts 4:12.  Buddha is not the way.  Mohammed is not the way.

Donald Perkins is working on a new book- “Prophecy and God’s Order Of Events.”  It is a simple overview for the common man to understand.

Jordan/Israel ~ 1987-1988 ~ Part 7

Day #7

The rabiis, or Orthodox Jews, wear their hair very short with a long, long strand near the ear.  It would be interesting to find out why.  They are probably trying to fulfill a law of theirs.  On the way to our first stop, Pastor Grimes told us that it hardly ever rains at the Dead Sea.

Our first stop entailed a visit to an Israeli shrine in commemoration of the Jewish Holocaust.  The question remains, was the Holocaust God’s push of the Jews into the Holy Land?  First of all, we saw the Israeli military cemetery.  We saw many stones representing the war in 1948, when 650,000 Jews had a six month war with the Arabs and lost 6,000 people.  The Israeli national movement is called the Zionist Movement, named after Mount Zion, or Jerusalem.  Other stones were from soldiers who died in 1967.  (the Six Day War).  Next, we proceeded to the Memorial to the Holocaust.  One and one half million children were killed.  Seventy two hundred (7,200) Jewish people escaped from Denmark to Sweden.  We saw pictures of gas chambers in Poland.  Death and Concentration Camps were all over Europe.  The hair and gold teeth were extracted from the Jews and used in the war effort.  The Holocaust is one reason the Jews go to Mount Masada and vow they will never surrender, but fight to the death,  This entire Memorial is a good reminder of the wretchedness of the heart of man.

Next, we looked at the Dead Sea Scrolls.  We saw part of the book of Isaiah in the Hebrew Aramaic.  It was discovered Qumran in 1947, and it dates to about 100 B.C.  It was made by the famous Essenes.  Then we saw the Temple Scroll.  The Temple Scroll is God teaching the Torah in the first person.  We saw the Manuel of Discipline – the regulations of the Essenes.  We saw the War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness.  The biggest blessing, however, was to see a scroll of Isaiah dated 100 B.C., and filled with the prophecies of Jesus Christ!  (examples:  Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, chapter 53, etc.)  We saw the Nahum Commentary which identified the Essenes.  We saw the scrolls of forty one of the Psalms, including the apocryphal One Hundred and Fifty First Psalm.  We saw the jars which held the Dead Sea Scrolls.  We looked at the old marriage contract, a divorce bill, business letters (selling dates and fruits), and a social letter.  The Bar Kokhba revolt of 132-135 was the last revolt of the Jews against the Romans.  This was mentioned in a social letter.  Over seven hundred scrolls and parchments have been found around Qumran.

Now we proceeded to Hezekiah’s Tunnel.  We entered the Hinnom Valley, filled with olive trees.  Then we came to the Kidron Valley.  Hezekiah’s Tunnel is almost one half a mile long, and is a tremendous engineering feat.  There were many residences right outside the tunnel, where donkeys worked right at the tunnel site, and children rode the donkeys.  The tunnel consisted of two parts:  1) The original Canaanite Shaft and 2) Hezekiah’s Tunnel into David’s city.  We saw the entrance to Hezekiah’s Tunnel – dated 750 B.C.  Then we saw where David found the shaft, near the tunnel, which he used to enter Jerusalem around 1000 B.C.  We walked up Mount Ophel – David’s city was a steep hill which was surrounded by valleys, the Kidron and Tyropoeon Valleys.  The shaft and the tunnel diverted water from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam at the south end of David’s city.  When David took Jerusalem, Joab went up the Canaanite Shaft in order to open the gate for David and his men.  Because of what he did, Joab received one of David’s daughters in marriage.

We noticed that Muslims paint their doors in relation to their “status” in faith.  A red door, for instance, means they went to Mecca.  There is no end to the customs and oddities in this land.

From our location in Hezekiah’s Tunnel, the ancient walls of the city of David could be seen.  We observed the Pool of Siloam, which was the water receiving area for David’s Jerusalem.  Swimmers were seen who entered the Pool of Siloam, having gone through Hezekiah’s Tunnel.  Nearby, are the traditional sites of the tombs of both Jehosephat and Zedekiah.  They are not one hundred per cent positive about the authenticity of these tombs.  There is more certainty however, about the tomb of Absalom.

Today is Friday, the Muslim Holy Day, and the soldiers were equipped with sticks and riot gear.

Next, we saw Zedekiah’s Cave or Solomon’s Quarries, a mountain where rock and stone was cut out for the temple.  It was a hollowed out mountain, a huge and vast cave opening into an amphitheater.  It kept going down deeper and deeper.  Ton upon ton of rocks were removed.  The traditional site of Golgotha or Calvary was seen across the street from Zedekiah’s Cave.  This was a Muslim area and we could not go there.  We noticed military halftracks and troops in the area.

On the way to Bethlehem, we passed another of Herod’s fortresses in the distance.  It was the Herodium, a man made mountain where Herod flashed signals from, way out in the desert.  (Because of his paranoia over assasination attempts, King Herod slept in a different place every night).  His tomb could be in this fortress which is noted for its flat top, looking like a volcanic mountain from a distance.  We passed Rachel’s tomb in Bethlehem off the main street.

For lunch, we went into St. George’s Arab Restaurant in Bethlehem.  An Arab waiter attempted to take away my salad while I was eating it.  Pastor Grimes was seated next to me and quickly took the waiter to task, straightening out his decorum.  We had lamb shiskabob, and it was good.  Speaking of Arab and custom, I would like to mention that the Arab toilet we saw near Petra, was in a large room, and on the floor.  I was totally mesmerized when I first saw it.  One would perform their bodily functions before a crowd.  Unbelievable.

We walked over to the Church of the Nativity after lunch.  This is the traditional birth place of Jesus Christ.  The church is built on a cave.  The only entrance, the front door, was short so camels could not walk in.  The cave was charcoal black, due to many people bringing in torches and candles.  The 1)Greek Orthodox, 2)Armenian, 3)and Roman Catholic all control this church, each with their own section.  A Greek Orthodox Priest, dressed in black, rang bells filled with smoky incense all over the church – making it “holy.”  Many of us gagged and coughed because of the smoke.  The church goes back to the 5th Century and is rugged looking, like a fortress.  The church has the original Byzantine 5th Century floor, Muslim columns, and Crusader decorations on the walls.  Another cave or manger was on the other side.  After leaving the Greek Orthodox Church, we entered the Catholic section.  This was a very ritualistic church.

Now we proceeded toward the shepherd’s fields.  There was a natural cave in these fields, and there were many shepherd’s fields to be seen in the area.  These fields were similar to, and may have actually been, the fields that Ruth worked in and Boaz owned.  Beth-lehem means “house of bread.”  There are wheat fields and shepherd’s fields all around the town, hence the name.  From Bethlehem, we had a breath-taking view of the mountains of Moab, across the desert and the Dead Sea.  Moab, we know, was where Ruth came from, and the country originated between Lot and one of his daughters.

We then saw a beautiful panoramic view of Jerusalem from the south.  We could observe David’s city at Mount Ophel up the middle, the Mount of Olives was seen on the right, and Mount Zion was on the left.  The valleys are as follows:  the Kidron Valley bears off to the right, the Tyropoeon Valley goes to the left, and the Hinnom Valley can be found in the middle.  We could oberve the ever present Dome of the Rock in the middle also, above the Hinnom Valley.

Next, we went through the Hinnom Valley in Jerusalem – also called Gehenna because it was a trash dump where “the fire never went out.”  The word Gehenna, of course, refers to burning.  The never ending burning of hell.

We went to a store in Jerusalem belonging to a gentleman named Was-Was.  Along the way we smelled the aroma of many good Arabic foods.  Haggling is common place in Jerusalem, as you can bargain with people.  For a reasonable price, I bought two brass candlesticks for my wife, and an olive wood donkey to add to our collection of over twenty donkeys at home.

 

Do The Old Testament Levitical Feasts Forecast The Time Of Christ’s Return?

 We will show the movie The Coming Convergence at our church at 6 PM, Sunday, May 7, 2017.  It relates to believer and unbeliever alike, how the fulfillment of ancient prophecies is lining up.  It also features (see in the You Tube below), how Christ’s famous words:  “No man knows the day or the hour,” are related to the Feasts of Trumpets and may have a deeper meaning than has been surmised in the past.  Live in the light of His soon return, and pray for revival in America.

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

New discovery proves when Jesus returns? Theologians reconsider what was meant by “no one knows the day or hour”.
 
You might have heard it said that “no one can know the day or the hour” for the return of Jesus, and as a result, millions are ignoring the prophetic warnings that surround us in these last days; however, through a shocking discovery within the biblical timeline, this phrase, that so many use as an excuse to ignore the coming Tribulation, may actually have been taken entirely out of context.

No matter your view of the tribulation period or the second coming, you MUST watch this new video from PNW. This shocking insight was exposed by a new film called, The Coming Convergence, that presents evidence to finally prove to non-believers that Bible prophecy is real!

In fact, the message is so powerful, that many are calling for churches of all denominations across America to show it to their congregations! Make no mistake, The Coming Convergence is not what you would expect from your typical prophecy film, but is so life-changing, retailers are having trouble keeping it in stock as the word continues to spread!

This film will not only excite and strengthen your personal faith, but can be an invaluable tool to share with those that don’t believe the Bible.

 

The Coming Convergence  ~  Additional Information

Is it possible to know the day of our demise? Jesus chastised religious leaders in ancient Jerusalem for not knowing the time of His first arrival. Will the prophesied final generation today make the same mistake? The Bible foretells that the end of days would be preceded by a sequence of global events that has never before occurred, but can this be proven? Through newly exposed geological and statistical evidence, a convergence of events has now been discovered that many believe finally prove the Tribulation is about to begin! This whistleblower film breaks the mold of what a documentary can be by pulling you deeper into the reality of the approaching apocalypse as you follow the story of a young girl (Erin Hawkins) that is living through the end of days. Her cinematic interruptions throughout the documentary act as a warning to the genuine reality humankind will soon face. The conclusion of The Coming Convergence leaves such an impact that attendees during the film’s theatrical premiere in California were driven to tears and shock. Features Jack Hibbs, Ray Bentley, Douglas Hamp, Brent Miller Sr, Tom Hughes and Kade Hawkins. Written and directed by award winning filmmaker, Brent Miller Jr.

The Temple May Soon Be Built! ~ Prophecy News Watch

Israel is God’s Prophetic Time Piece.  When the church age is concluded with following the rapture, Israel will be the focal point during the seventieth week of Daniel (Great Tribulation).  The Temple will be ground zero in reference to the activities during this volatile time in history.  The commencement of the building of the Temple will indicate that we are knocking at the door to the end of the age.  Enjoy this article from the website Prophecy News Watch.  Open the following links for pictures of the proposed Temple, and important additional information.
