Arab Emirates Bring Pagan War Goddess to United Nations ~ November 28, 2017

“For he built again the high places which Chizkiyahu his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal.”
II Kings 21:3 (The Israel Bible™)
The same multinational group that recreated the Palmyra Victory Arch and sent it on a world tour has now recreated a statue of Athena, the Roman goddess of war, for an exhibit in the United Nations, an organization that claims to be working towards world peace but which one rabbi likens to modern-day paganism.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) officially inaugurated the Digital Archaeology Exhibition, “The Spirit in the Stone”, at the United Nations’ headquarters in New York City last Thursday. The UAE, the Italian mission to the UN, and the Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDA) cooperated in re-creating a statue of the Roman goddess Athena for the exhibit.

The original Athena statue stood in Palmyra, Syria, until it was destroyed by ISIS in 2015. The UAE announcement described the goddess as “synonymous with reason, refuge and the rule of law, all of the same values on which that historic institution was built,” but the statue depicts Athena in her classic pose grasping a spear, belying her prominent role as the Roman goddess of war.
It is also believed that the Roman goddess Athena was based on the earlier Mesopotamian goddess Ashera and was later incorporated into early Islam as al-Lāt, worshipped in Saudi Arabia as the consort of Allah mentioned in the Koran. This would be consistent with the statue’s history at the site in Palmyra, which was used as a temple by the Mesopotamians, Romans, and Muslims in succession.

Rabbi Elad Dokow, the head rabbi and lecturer at Israel’s Technion Institute of Technology, was not surprised that the United Nations would feature a display of pagan symbols.
“There is currently an unmistakable rise of paganism and idol worship in the world, more than any other religion, and it is naive to believe this display is disconnected from this phenomenon,” Rabbi Dokow told Breaking Israel News. “Paganism creates the ability for each man to create his own truth, as opposed to Judaism and Christianity, which state that there is an objective truth man must abide by. The UN, like paganism, is a place of subjective reality created by a vote.”
“What we are seeing in the world today is that every place Christianity grows weak, paganism and idolatry grow stronger, and where Christianity disappears, horrible things happen.”
Though an initiative bringing together the Muslim-majority UAE with Italy to recreate a Roman pagan idol seems incongruous, just such a union was described in Jewish prophecy, first alluded to in Psalms.
For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moav, and the Hagrites. Psalms 83:6-7
The first-century Jewish sage Jonathan ben Uzziel described how this Biblical alliance between Ishmael and Esau would reappear in war at the End of Days.
“Great ships full of weapons will depart as a large fleet from Roman Italy and will join up with a legion that will depart from Constantine [this is Ishmael]. They will harm the inhabitants of other lands, and subjugate the descendants of Eber [a reference to Israel].”
The UAE has worked with the IDA in the past. Their first collaboration, the 3-D printed Arch of Palmyra, was prominently featured in the UN exhibit as a full-size projection onto a screen. The original Arch of Palmyra was a Roman victory arch that stood for 1,800 years in front of the temple to the pagan god Ba’al in Palmyra until, like the statue of Athena, it was destroyed by ISIS.

Ba’al was the form of idol worship frequently mentioned in the Bible as accompanying the worship of the female false goddess, Ashera.
They rejected all the commandments of Hashem their God; they made molten idols for themselves—two calves—and they made a sacred post [Ashera] and they bowed down to all the host of heaven, and they worshiped Baal. II Kings 17:16
The reproduction of the Arch was first presented in April last year at London’s Trafalgar Square for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Week. The unveiling coincided with the most important pagan holiday of the year, Beltane, ushering in a 13-day period known in the occult as “the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast”, which was traditionally celebrated with child sacrifice and bisexual orgies.
Similar to the current display of Athena at the UN, the Palmyra Arch was also displayed at events associated with a world government. It was the centerpiece of the World Government Summit in Dubai last February, and appeared in Sarona, Italy in June, its display intentionally coinciding with the G7 Summit of world leaders.

Prophecy in the News: Jerusalem: 4,000 Years in 5 Minutes (VIDEO) ~ January 26, 2018

Jerusalem, a Middle Eastern city west of the Dead Sea, has been a place of pilgrimage and worship for Jews, Christians and Muslims since the biblical era. Its Old City has significant religious sites around the Temple Mount compound, including the Western Wall (sacred to Judaism), the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (a Christian pilgrimage site) and the Dome of the Rock (a 7th-century Islamic shrine with a gold dome).
Jerusalem is a mosaic of different peoples, faiths, and nationalities. Nevertheless, despite this diversity, under the sovereignty of Israel, Jerusalem is a city that works. But has it always been this way?
Watch this fascinating video of the entire history of Jerusalem in just 5 minutes. You will find it simply amazing!

NEW Revised Edition of TEMPLE by Robert “Bob” Cornuke ~ Amazing New Discoveries that Change Everything About the Location of Solomon’s Temple Watch this week’s program as Bob Cornuke talks with Dr. Kevin Clarkson in Part Two of the “Search for the Temple”

If you are a student at the SouthWest Florida Bible Institute, and interested in taking the following course:  “NT701 Two Tremendous Archaeological Discoveries” starting March 20, 2018, then you will want to watch the following cutting edge archaeological findings.  Bob Cornuke is interviewed by Dr. Kevin Clarkson, president of Prophecy in the News, about his REVISED and UPDATED book “Temple.”  The new book (just released days ago) can be purchased from KHouse and Chuck Missler, from Base Institute and Bob Cornuke, or from Prophecy In The News.  The older book Temple is 207 pages.  The new book you want to purchase is 239 pages – I received a copy of it today.  Bob Cornuke is turning the field of Christian archaeology on its head, as he navigates through the plethora of 2,000 years of errors in tradition, and uses solely the Bible as his roadmap, pursuing the correct places of archaeological importance to the Christian.  This book explores a new possible site for the temple, and Jesus’ exact place of crucifixion.  If the location is correct, then the famed Islamic Dome of the Rock would not be in the way of building the temple!  Bob Cornuke is highly respected in circles of famous people throughout the Middle East, and has combed the catacombs of passageways underneath Jerusalem with Benjamin Netanyahu.  You will enjoy the following videos and his book Temple.

In Christ, Pastor Steve  <><

Can you imagine the upheaval in political and religious thinking if the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is not the site of Solomon’s and Herod’s temples?

Since first published in 2014, Bob Cornuke’s ground-breaking book, TEMPLE, has been heralded as “an investigative masterpiece” with “astounding archaeological and prophetic implications.” We have already seen some “Bible scholars” publicly mock and try to refute him for his discoveries. Refusing to even debate him for fear that their lucrative careers will be tarnished, knowing all the while that the discoveries in this book has literally sent shockwaves through the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian worlds.

Bob has just released his NEW and updated version of this exciting book. Because there were so many negative untrue things being said about Bob’s discovery of the location of the Temple, Bob decided to add an appendix in the back of his new book to address these negative accusations. To be fair, he decided not to write the appendix, but to allow an outsider do the research and write this section of the book. That man is Dr. William P. Welty, who taught New Testament Greek for ten years at Simon Greenleaf University of Anaheim, California. Dr. Welty is a Bible scholar and executive director of the ISV Foundation. He was skeptical at first when Bob ask him to do the research, but when he finished, he called Bob and told him “There is no way that this is not the place of the Temple in the City of David.” His research is excellent!

Pentagon Secretly Set Up Program To Investigate UFOs At Harry Reid’s Urging ~ December 18, 2017

After reading news articles like this one, I feel like creating a new blog category entitled: “You can’t make this stuff up.”  This article proves once again that the most dangerous thing in America is not ISIS or even MS 13.  The most dangerous thing in America is an enabled liberal with a cause.  Blessings and Merry Christmas,   Pastor Steve

Prophecy in the News:

Pentagon Secretly Set Up Program To Investigate UFOs At Harry Reid’s Urging

The Defense Department secretly set up a program ten years ago to investigate unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, at the urging of then-Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, according to news reports.

Both The New York Times and the website Politico published stories Saturday revealing the existence of the Pentagon’s now-defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.
The New York Times said the UFO program began in 2007, while Politico reported in began in 2009.
According to the reports, Reid, a Nevada Democrat, helped steer money under the program to a donor’s aerospace research company.

A Pentagon spokesman said the UFO program ended in 2012, though The New York Times said the Defense Department still investigates potential episodes of unidentified flying objects.

“The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 timeframe,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told Politico. “It was determined that there were other, higher-priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change.”

White added: “The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed.”

Politico said the program was not classified but few officials knew about it. Reid secured the funding for the program in 2009 with the help of former Hawaii Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye and former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who have both since died.

Both outlets said Reid’s interest in UFOs was the result of friend and donor Bob Bigelow, who owns Bigelow Aerospace and has said before he is “absolutely convinced” aliens exist and UFOs have visited Earth.

The New York Times said the program had a $22 million annual budget and “most of the money” went to Bigelow’s research company, which hired subcontractors and solicited research for the program.

“I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going,” Reid told the newspaper. “I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service. I’ve done something that no one has done before.”

Both outlets said the person who ran the program, Luis Elizondo, resigned in October and complained about a lack of interest from top officials about it.
“Why aren’t we spending more time and effort on this issue?” Elizondo wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, according to the Times.

According to Politico, a former staffer said the effort created “reams of paperwork” but little else of value.
Reid wasn’t the only Democrat in Washington with an apparent fascination with UFOs. John Podesta, the former Obama White House adviser and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, is also known to have an interest.
“Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere,” Podesta tweeted in 2015 on his last day in the White House.

Hacked emails published online by WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential race showed Podesta exchanged emails with NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who wanted to set up a meeting with Obama about UFOs. Podesta’s assistant told Mitchell he wanted to take the meeting himself before involving Obama.

Note:  The world view of the atheist / agnostic / evolutionist, is light years away from that of the born again Christian.  We believe in the world as presented in the Bible, from creation onward.  Those who believe in a man centered world view, place more faith in the Star Trek philosophy – that since the universe is so vast, there has to be life elsewhere.  Hence, as we see so many leave the belief in the Judeo Christian ethic, they are bound to fall for the philosophies of fallen mankind.  So, it is really no shock to observe politicians who believe that we need to spend millions in our search for UFOs.  Maranatha, Pastor Steve

TRUMPOCALYPSE The End-Times President, a Battle Against the Global Elite, and the Countdown to Armageddon

Enjoy this special feature below from Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson, who unveil possible apocalyptic end time scenarios with the unique circumstances in our world, and Donald Trump as the President of the United States (POTUS).  Paul McGuire has an uncanny spiritual discernment about our times, and the ability to couple current events with Biblical prophecy.  Note the profound analogy of 1930’s Nazi Germany with the United States of America today.  Paul McGuire reveals how Donald Trump is impeding the goals of the New World Order (NWO), the Deep State, the media, and the United Nations.  These global organizations will do anything to remove him from office.  What is truly amazing, is that McGuire’s interpretation has already been my own understanding!

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

Internationally-recognized prophecy expert, Paul McGuire has once again teamed up with a Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative journalist, Troy Anderson, to bring us an explosive new book titled:
TRUMPOCALYPSE
The End-Times President, a Battle Against the Global Elite, and the Countdown to Armageddon
The word “TRUMPOCALYPSE” is a media-coined meme inciting panic and fear that America has elected an unstable man who will barge into delicate international affairs like a bull in a china shop and incite nations bent on America’s destruction to trigger World War III – an unprecedented nuclear apocalypse ending the world as we know it. The question is…”Is the media telling the truth?” The answer is…NO! You will be surprised to find out that America’s most insidious enemies are not hostile nations, but elite globalists, better known as the “Establishment.” They are making themselves richer while hard-working, middle-class people watch their incomes and net worths flatline or plummet. The authors fearlessly expose the globalist elite’s secret plan for humanity and campaign of mass deception.

TRUMPOCALYPSE explores the enigmatic prophecies and “biblical codes” involving President Trump and asks whether God raised up President Trump as a fearless leader to guide America and the free world through a series of major crises as the biblical end-time narrative unfolds. Everyday Americans have rallied around Trump as their last hope of saving America. It reveals why Trump and millions of “deplorables” are fighting to stop the hidden agenda of the Establishment.

Pray For Revival In America!

Pray fervently and without ceasing for President Donald Trump, our government, and our nation…

Prophecy in the News: Muslim No-Go Zones in the USA? (VIDEO)

Muslim No-Go Zones in the USA? (VIDEO)
January 08 2018

Martin Mawyer, founder of the Christian Action Network, is fighting a battle against Islamic violence. Yet he is alone in this battle. For despite the violence and unlawfulness in the mere existence of America’s Muslim “NO-go-zones”, there is no one to challenge them.
Reports have it that in Dearborn, MI over 100,000 Muslims (45% of the city!) have settled into a “no-go” zone. The area is governed by Sharia law. The Muslim authorities of the compound build as they like, create schools, and write their own curriculum. Is this their implementation of the first amendment? What about the rights of others to enter the neighborhood which should be open to the public under American law? Should they be allowed to position guards at the entrance to these compounds to keep people out?
We need some lawyers to check the legality of these no-go zones and some policemen to enforce American law there. Volunteers?

California, Once Again Showing Why They Are On The “Left” Coast

Fake Sign, But Sadly, Not Fake News
January 03 2018

Prank California highway signs ‘welcome’ felons, illegal immigrants and MS-13 gang members.
Drivers entering California are being greeted with signs proclaiming the liberal bastion an “2.3 million illegal immigrants,” according to photos and videos circulating on social media appearing to show a prankster attached the official-looking blue signs just below legitimate “Welcome to California” markers.

The sanctuary state sign, which adds “Felons, Illegals and MS13 [gang members] welcome,” is similar to one hung up by a Malibu activist last year.
“Democrats Need The Votes!” reads a message on the signs, which are plastered with the Great Seal of California and a donkey, one of the symbols of the Democratic Party.
California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) spokesman Mark Dinger told Fox News on Tuesday that one of the signs was taken down yesterday on Interstate-15 near the California/Nevada border. A crew has been dispatched today to remove another sign spotted on I-40 near the border with Arizona, he added.
“For safety reasons, Caltrans does not permit any unauthorized signs in the state right of way,” the agency said in a statement. “If we haven’t done so already, Caltrans crews will take steps to remove them.”
California became a “sanctuary state” on Monday after ats bill Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law in October officially took effect.
The law bars police in the nation’s most populous state from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases.
The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants.
The signs in photos and videos being circulated on social media are similar to one placed in Malibu in April 2017, after it declared itself a sanctuary city.
“Official Sanctuary City ‘Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!’ (Boyle Heights Not So Much.)” read the sign on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway, according to FOX5.
That sign was reported by a California State Parks employee to authorities but was already taken down by the time deputies arrived to investigate.
“This was not an official city sign,” Malibu Councilwoman Laura Rosenthal had told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s down, and it’s very disheartening that anyone would put up such an ugly sign.”
“Whoever did this spent some time on it,” she added.

Top Bible Prophecy Stories Of 2017

Top Bible Prophecy Stories Of 2017

By Jan Markell/Olivetreeviews.org December 29, 2017

Pieces of the eschatological puzzle continue to manifest daily. Even signs that are primarily Tribulation events are casting a shadow today. As I perused news stories of the year, I selected 15 items that tell us time is short. The King is coming soon. Don’t ever doubt that.

1. Jerusalem became a greater “burdensome stone” with Donald Trump’s acknowledgement that this is truly Israel’s capital and holy city. See Zechariah 12:3. Greater controversy will surround her in the year ahead.

2. The Gog-Magog alliance went on fast-forward. Iran, Turkey, and Russia are uniting with a primary goal in mind — coming against Israel as foreshadowed in Ezekiel 38-39. Turkey’s Erdogan threatened to “wipe out all Jews” after the Jerusalem announcement.

3. A new false god came on the scene and many hailed its arrival. An ex-Google executive is founding a church where artificial intelligence will be worshiped. It’s called AI for short and keep your eyes on this in 2018.

4. The scoffing of eschatology went to a new level. Many said the announcement concerning Jerusalem was received well by many Christians only because it will hasten Christ’s return. Many who love prophecy have given up finding a church that will address this.

5. Tribulation Temple talk escalated after Donald Trump’s announcement concerning Jerusalem.

6. One salacious scandal followed another in 2017 revealing that man’s character now reflects the end-time warnings of Romans 1 and II Timothy 3.

7. Israel continued pounding targets in Syria foreshadowing the day when she will carry out the prophetic verse found in Isaiah 17:1 — the destruction of Damascus.

8. The idea of micro-chipping is now so accepted that one news outlet said people will soon be eager to be micro-chipped. It was suggested that we will eagerly line up like dogs for a chip.

9. As predicted, evil is waxing worse and worse (II Timothy 3:13). Pagan gods are appearing in many places including at the U.N. The occult is more appealing than ever and Millennials are “spellbound” by the paranormal.

10. Lawlessness is growing and the ‘spirit of Antichrist’ seems to be poured out on the earth in greater ways this past year. The Antifa movement is one illustration. George Soros is busier than ever in his waning years.

11. There has been an intensification of calling evil good (Isaiah 5:20). Islamic jihad proponent Linda Sarsour made threatening comments about President Trump yet almost became Time magazine’s “person of the year.” In the mind of the Left, Islam must be celebrated.

12. The world of technology has declared war on Christians and conservatives. Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and more, are pulling the plug or limiting righteous comments and ideology yet they often celebrate evil. This reached new levels in 2017.

13. The terms “peace and security” are used in the Bible in I Thessalonians 5:3. It is false peace and security. The term was used with greater intensity in the last year. Donald Trump has been heralded as the president who will bring Israel “peace and security.” On December 18, Fox News said President Trump would bring peace and security around the globe. The President stated that he “has laid a pathway to peace and security in our world.”

14. In spite of world turmoil, there is a greater “business-as-usual” atmosphere particularly in America. Since Donald Trump has been President, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has closed at record highs 82 times. The Bible suggests there will be such a comfortable time on earth when Christ returns in spite of the frequent “birth pangs” which have also been record-setting.

15. There is even more evidence that only Jesus ruling and reigning from Jerusalem will provide great government. It has become evident that mankind cannot drain a swamp filled with alligators and poisonous snakes! Washington is corrupt to the core because mankind’s heart is “desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9). Draining the swamp was a great campaign slogan but 2017 showed us that first man’s heart must be made new.

We can look at a list like this and focus on ” sighs of the times” rather than realize that they are ” signs of the times.” The pieces of the puzzle continue to fall into place. Nothing is falling apart but instead falling into place.

Because of the turmoil of our times, someone said that the future is not what it used to be. Not true. The future was foretold and is playing out with a precise script and a predictable end only because it is all outlined in scripture. We can watch it in high-definition color with surround sound and even in 3D. We have front row seats!

The King is coming, perhaps today.

The Story Behind the Christmas Carol… “O Little Town of Bethlehem” ~ December 23 2017

Written By Prophecy In The News

 The Story Behind the Christmas Carol… “O Little Town of Bethlehem”

 

December 23, 2017

 He was a dynamic pulpiter. He would preach at a rate of 250 words per minute. In thirty-five to forty minutes, he could deliver a sermon that would take the average minister an hour. His preaching was topical rather than expositional. There were times when he was criticized for his lack of depth in doctrine. However, he is recognized as one of America’s greatest preachers.
He had only been in the ministry six years when he was asked to preach the final rites over President Abraham Lincoln.
His ministry was also characterized by his love for children. Brooks’ study was filled with many scholarly books, papers, and journals, but it also held toys and dolls for his little friends, whom he always gave time for play.

 

He took the words to the church organist, Lewis Redner, and asked him to write a tune for his simple carol. Brooks wanted the children to sing the carol. Brooks wanted the children to sing the carol the next Sunday, which was Christmas Day. Brooks told Redner if he would compose a good melody he would name it after him. Redner gave much thought to the carol and tune all week long but the inspiration would not come. On Christmas Eve, he went to bed without a melody. Very late in the night, he was awakened by what he called an “angel strain” singing the melody he was to put with the carol. Early on Christmas morning, he found himself filling out the harmony for the carol. Lewis Redner said many times that the melody was a “gift from heaven.” Thirty-six children and six Sunday School teachers sang the carol for the first time on that Christmas morning in 1868, proving once again God never comes too late with too little; Brooks named the tune after his organist. To keep from embarrassing Redner, he changed his first name “Lewis” to “Louis” and called it “St. Louis.” The carol was printed in leaflets and was used locally. Then in 1874, William R. Huntington first published it in Church Porch. It has become one of the best-loved Christmas hymns in the English language.
Phillip Brooks was made Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Massachusetts in 1891. Two years later, he died in Boston at the age of fifty-seven. Brooks has been called a great preacher. He has been referred to as having a “princely form towering… as a giant.” Probably the best description of Brooks’ was given by one of his five-year-old “little friends.” When told that her big friend had gone to heaven, she replied, “How happy the angels will be.”

 

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight
For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars together,
Proclaim the holy birth,
And praised sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth!
How silently, how silently,
The wondrous Gift is giv’n;
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His Heav’n.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.
O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in,
Be born in us today.
Be born in us today,
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel!
