“Peace and Safety!”
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
“Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you you are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labour pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3.
“Peace and Safety – comes before WHAT? Just before “sudden destruction!” Why such a severe judgment upon this world’s religious system? God’s Word answers… “For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven.” – Revelation 18:5. Among these sins is this… “In her was found the blood of prophets and of holy ones (saints) and of all those who have been slaughtered on the earth.” – Revelation 18:24. Which “false religion” in past (and in our day) has caused mass slaughter of Jews and Christians? ISLAM! While NOT teaching the truth about God and His laws, worldly pagan religion has become involved in wars that have resulted in the slaughter of hundreds of millions of people down through the centuries. And, so too has false religion taken the lead in persecuting God’s true servants! (Luke 11:47-51; Revelation 17:6). Whether, directly or indirectly by what she has done or has failed to do ...God holds “Babylon the Great” responsible for the blood of “all those who have been slaughtered on the earth!” Therefore, the “Great Tribulation” rightly begins with the destruction of the blasphemous, hypocritical world empire of godless false religion. It is a righteous judgment because the world’s religion; “Babylon the Great,” has claimed to serve God, but in fact has served the Devil and hundreds of millions of people have been deluded into serving the Devil’s interests.- Revelation 17:3-6; 18:23).
What shows that false religions’ destruction comes with shocking suddenness? The fall of “Babylon the Great” comes very suddenly, totally unexpected from the world’s standpoint. So sudden will be her destruction that it will shock the “political” leaders who supported her! We read; “The kings of the earth who committed fornication with her and lived in shameless luxury will weep and beat themselves in grief over her, when they look at the smoke from the burning of her, while they stand at a distance because of their fear of her torment and say, ‘Too bad, too bad, you great city, Babylon you strong city, because in one hour your judgment has arrived!’” The “traveling merchants” or commercial elements that supported her willâ€‹similarly exclaim; “Too bad, too bad - because in one hour such great riches have been devastated!” – Revelation 18:9-19.â€‹ In what way does destruction come unexpectedly and painfully? This fits the description in; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, which shows that destruction comes very suddenly and unexpectedly, for “The Day of the Lord,” is to come “exactly as a thief in the night!” How does it come “as a thief in the night?” In that most of mankind have not kept awake to Prophecy - the revelation of God’s will! They are spiritually asleep! They are like a person who is sleeping at night when a thief comes unexpectedly and such persons have allowed themselves to become dulled into supporting this doomed system of things. So the destruction of “Babylon the Great” comes unexpectedly for them. Indeed, the “Day of the Lord” for the destruction of all elements of Satan’s system will come “exactly as a thief in the night.” Destruction will come upon God’s enemies suddenly and painfully - “just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape!” – 2 Peter 3:10.
The Day of the Lord is supposed to come suddenly as travail upon a woman about to give birth! How can this be if the “Great Tribulation” occurs before the “Day of the Lord?” Matthew 24:8 says of the signs; “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” The Greek word for sorrows is “Odin” which also means the “travail” of a woman before she gives birth. Paul uses the same word in; 1 Thessalonians 5:3 to describe the “Day of the Lord.” If the “Day of the Lord” comes as travail upon a woman …how can there be signs? The obvious answer is that although the final throws of pain before childbirth come “suddenly” and unexpectedly when the woman and her husband are hardly unaware that the event is about to take place …in fact, they have 9 months’ worth of “signs” to prepare themselves for the “sudden” event of the child’s birth. Are we as believers ready?
Conditions today certainly parallel what happened on earth just before God destroyed an Ancient World by means of a “global flood” …sparing only righteous Noah and his family. The Bible says; “God saw that the wickedness of man was abundant in the earth …and the earth became filled with violence!” – Genesis 6:5, 11. Just as the “Days of Noah” were, Yeshua (Jesus) foretold, so it is in our time! (Matthew 24:37). Once again the entire earth today is “filled with violence” …because “the wickedness of man” is great!
Such conditions before the Flood gave evidence of the impending end of that ancient system of things …and so it is in our day the evidence of world conditions in fulfilment of Bible Prophecy …and clearly establishes the fact that this present system of things is in its “Time of the End,” it’s “Last Days.” – (Daniel 12:4; Matthew 24:3-14; 2 Timothy 3:1-5). This has been so since the year 1914. At the end of WW1, England and France trusted in the “Treaty of Versailles” to the point that they essentially disarmed, assuming Germany would abide by the settlement imposed on it. But, Germany didn’t disarm, despite numerous inspections supposedly verifying that it had. Why didn’t the French remember Germany’s treatment of the 1808 Franco/Prussian treaty whereby Prussia had agreed to maintain an army of only 42,000? In that instance, Europe learned 2 years later that Prussia was able to put nearly 200,000 soldiers into the field! England’s “treaty-reliance” between WW1 and WW11 was evidenced not only by Chamberlain’s “peace” pronouncement …but by its military downsizing. And, another treaty which actually led to INCREASED Germany’s naval power led to the bloodshed of WW11 and the threatened annihilation of Britain and the Jewish people! It was “treaty-reliance” that brought war to Russia as Stalin trusted Hitler.
There is NO such thing as ‘making’ true peace! Just look at the so-called “land for peace” agreement made with Palestinians in GAZA by US President George W Bush and the late Israeli PM Ariel Sharon in 2005? There has NEVER been “peace” but rather endless “hell-fire” from Hamas Islamic terrorism! Nations who are friendly don’t need to make peace …but, nations or people who are hostile can’t do so! You see that the real peace will come only when the “Prince of Peace” – Yeshua (Jesus) returns and then true “SHALOM” – “peace” reigns. When our Lord commands us to…“Pray for the ‘peace’ of Jerusalem,” may they be ‘secure’ (safety) who love you (Jerusalem)! - Psalm 122:6 …we are then in fact praying for the Second Coming of the Lord!
Bible Prophecy is unfolding before our eyes! What is happening? What will happen? And, where are we at in God’s Prophetic time-line? Throughout the Holy Bible, God has given us many “signs” and has told us “to watch and pray” …so that we would know when we are in the “season” of the “End of this Age” …and those signs are happening right now – but, are we seeing it? The world is focused on being “politically correct” – but, we are to be more concerned about being “Biblically correct!” For the sake of “worldly peace,” the world wants to divide Jerusalem and Israel! Rather than follow the world, we as true believers should see how God is using nation’s leaders to fulfil His great plan in End-Times Prophecy! It’s safe to say that the world (and sadly many Christians) is clueless about how current conditions point to the nearness of the Second Coming of the Lord. Why? Because, they don’t study Bible Prophecy or they simply ignore it altogether! That’s a shame because there are things happening all around us that point to the fact that this world without God is growing darker, more volatile …and more desperate with each passing day. Just take a look at the so-called elites of Hollywood, the corrupt, anti-Christ and anti-Israel Liberal News Media channels (and it’s not just CNN who are totally “obsessed” by US President Donald Trump - but almost of all them). They are especially fixated about what happened in Trump’s personal life (even long before he was voted into office in November 2016) …and have nothing much to say other than report on sexual matters and false Russian news! The Media has become so “secular” and their agenda is now to destroy the character, by any means possible, of anyone who doesn’t share their liberal or anti-God views! They are so blinded by Satan that day after day they falsely report, lie about facts, and/or leave out details and/or play on words to fool the people. Today Christians and Jews face great persecution and much of this is also due to the Media NOT reporting truth! We are living in what the Bible calls “deception” in the Last Days! And, we are witnessing the Media becoming the voice of the Antichrist when he is finally revealed!
After the Church is “raptured” or “caught-up” to be with the Lord, the Bible tells us in Revelation 13:16-18 that there will be a day when no one can operate in the “global” economic system without the “mark of the beast.” Make no mistake; this will be a system of worship! The Antichrist will institute a “total global – One World” economic/religious system control by requiring everyone to take “the mark” in order to buy and sell. No one will be able to buy food, water, petrol/gasoline, electricity, medicine, clothing, or anything without having the mark on their right hand or forehead instituted by the Antichrist (after the Church is Raptured). This will be a time of total economic control! It will be nothing like the evils of the German Nazi’s total control that they wielded to oppress the Jews or even like Stalin’s oppression of people since they were but a foreshadowing of what the Antichrist will bring on the entire globe!. It’s NOT hard to believe that we are seeing the very tip of the beginning of a desperate fight for a “Global Economy” forming through the EU and UN that will one day result in total domination by “the beast.” We read that it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless they have the mark - that is, the “name of the beast” or the “number of its name.” This call for us to have wisdom - “let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666!” Despite all of the economic concerns, threats from radical Islamic terrorism, Middle East tension and natural disasters – many people are still lulled, entertained, or fooled into a sense of “peace and safety.” It is critical that every believer to be ready!
As global conditions continue to deteriorate, some people will be looking for answers and hope and we know that it is ONLY God who gives hope - not just when things begin to unravel, BUT for eternity! Those who don’t know Yeshua (Jesus) as Lord and Saviour are in eternal danger! Why can we be so certain that this world will continue to deteriorate? Because, in 2 Timothy 3:1, 13 we read that in these “Last Days,” wicked men and impostors will advance from bad to worse and therefore, the saying of; “Peace and Safety!” - will not touch the true condition of mankind. Sadly, NOTHING this world under Satan does is going to end the “avalanche” of crime, lawlessness and violence, or bring a halt to family breakdown, or reverse rampant immorality, or prevent the millions of abortion murders of unborn innocent babies every year, or solve any other major problems of mankind. (Jeremiah 10:23) Nor will the majority of people suddenly turn to the true worship of God. Bible prophecy correctly stated that people in our End-Time would be “lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power.” (2 Timothy 3:4, 5; Matthew 7:13-14).
What happens in Israel and the Middle East WILL affect the world! There is NO doubt about this… The situation in the Middle East is unstable on every side and tensions are rising in the region as Israel faces increased threats as never before! It seems as though the West has forgotten that the threat of terrorism is very real posses a constant danger …not only to Israel but to everyone everywhere. For the most part leaders of Western Nations have their heads buried in the sand when it comes to the dangers that the West will face!
Lt. Col. Steinberg, Commander of Battalion 931, said his forces do not encounter Hezbollah on the border fence daily, but that didn’t mean their forces and 100,000 rockets were not there. A considerable risk remains of an inadvertent conflict breaking out and escalating quickly! This could begin with a Hezbollah response to IDF action, with Hezbollah moving advanced missiles into Southern Lebanon (Jerusalem Post).
Iran and its proxy “Hezbollah”… are entrenched and empowered by the presence of the Russian military in Syria. Iran has operators in both Syria and Lebanon and their goal is long-term and united. Their ultimate goal is to destroy the Jewish State. Both Iran and Hezbollah have free reign in the region and continue gaining ground unimpeded, except for the Israeli Lebanese border where the IDF keeps close tabs on weapons shipments and has conducted airstrikes to stop weapons convoys from being delivered into terrorists hands. It is still unclear whether Russia has a plan on how its adventure in Syria might end and if it’s new military assets on the ground, like the modern fighters and S-400 anti-aircraft missiles, will remain there. Given this, it seems the longer the Russian military campaign in the region lasts, the stronger Moscow’s alliance with Iran, Hezbollah and possibly Iraq will become. This alliance threatens strategic Israeli interests with regard to Iran and Hezbollah – Jerusalem Post.
In the Ancient world – Assyria, Persia, Rome and even the greatest kingdoms couldn’t escape the laws of Almighty God when they come against God’s land and His chosen people the Jews. You see it goes back 4,000 years when a Middle Eastern man named Abram (Abraham) from the land of Chaldea who was chosen by God …and has God’s eternal promise given to him; “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you!” - Genesis 12:3. In other words God controls history! Those people, nations and powers who bless the Jewish people – the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, WILL be blessed …and those who curse them WILL be cursed! God’s Word is living truth! Could a 4,000 year old promise lie behind world history and the rise and fall of nations? YES! In 2 BC, the world’s most powerful Empire was Egypt …but Egypt oppressed the children of Abraham (the Jews) and so according to the “ancient mystery” somewhere around the time of Exodus and the peak of its oppression, the Egyptian Empire suddenly collapses and never to rise to its former prominence again! In this modern age we have another example; “Great Britain” who became a refuge for the Jewish people from persecution …and a nation in which they would prosper in “safety.” And, so according to God’s Law we can plainly see in history that Britain was exalted to the point that it’s Empire became the most expansive in world history ... Great Britain! But, when the British Empire reverses its position and turns against the Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust during Hitler’s Nazi Germany – this “greatest of empires” …suddenly collapses to virtually nothing! Today, an already weakened Britain has taken a step even further and has again tuned its back on the Jews and Israel, by openly supporting Muslims and Islam - the enemies of Israel. This time however Britain is now become increasingly more vulnerable for takeover by Sharia Law and Islam.
In the late 19th Century and into the 20th Century – America became the greatest refuge and defender of the Jewish people and according to God’s ancient but still valid promise of “blessing or cursing” in the same period of time America became the most “blessed, prosperous and powerful nation on earth!” However, just very recently we saw under the Obama Administration how shamefully and badly Israel was treated. Obama funded terrorism through the Iran so-called peace deal, Abbas the head of PLO, Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah and even interfered in Israel’s elections by sending his people into Israel to uproot PM Bibi Netanyahu. All Obama's efforts brought NOTHING but extreme hardship and loss of life to the Jewish nation. God raised up US President Trump who is literally a “wrecking ball” placed in the White House for “a time such as this” - to reverse Obama’s policies and treatment against Israel. The Evangelical Christians are true believers who voted for Trump and supernaturally made it possible through their prayers and by believing God change the course of America! President Trump has literally defied all odds by going against the flow of Globalists, Liberals, Elites, Hollywood …and of course the very corrupt and unfair Media. He restored America’s relationship with PM Bibi Netanyahu and historically moved the US Embassy to the Holy City of Jerusalem! However this November 2018, will be a crucial time for America as Satan is not happy and does not want to see US President Trump fulfil his term in office and is using lies and deceit to remove him from office so that God’s plans for America and Israel be stifled. We MUST stand with and pray for the US President Trump, Vice President Pence and their families for safety …and all the Evangelical Christians as they will once again go to vote in a critical mid-term vote that WILL determine the outcome and path for America and Israel - we believe it is their votes that will again save America this fall (autumn)! A strong America is good for Israel …And, for the rest of the Western World! You see it’s all about Israel. And, it’s all about Jerusalem!
Our country South Africa once played a part in the establishment of the re-birth of the Modern Jewish State – 70 years ago! South African pilots secretly flew to Israel to help the Jewish pilots in 1947/8 with their then non-existing Israeli Air Force and “against all odds” fight the surrounding enemy nations to help save Israel from being destroyed and becoming a nation. They paid a high price (some even unto death) but were a crucial part of the founding of the IAF …and the establishment and re-birth of Israel! South Africa is a country based upon Christian values and in the past has always stood with Israel. The South African Government once supported Israel and the Jewish people …but today we have seen a reversal over the years under the current government who is rejecting Israel and siding with Israel’s enemies. When South Africa stood with Israel in the past we saw a stronger currency (Rand) and prosperity as a nation. As Judeo-Christian believers South Africa is proudly made up of ALL people in Yeshua (Jesus) and we need to stand up against this evil of persecuting the Jews in Israel! Together we remain “Biblically correct” so that our country can be blessed and prosperous …as we stand with and support Israel in these very trying and difficult times! We thank you for YOUR faithfulness by standing with Pray4Zion; prayerfully and financially together we make a difference in Israel. We believe wholeheartedly that God will bless YOU!
From Egypt to Britain, South Africa and modern America the “Ancient promise” of God’s “blessing” and “cursing” has determined the “RISE” and “FALL” of kingdoms and empires! What does that tell us? It is wisdom to bless ISRAEL and the Jewish people! And, it also tells us that God is FAITHFUL, God is real, God’s Word – the Bible is true to every word and more powerful than man’s futile plans …and that God controls history! God rises up leaders and puts them in authority to accomplish His plans and purposes! We must take this promise from God’s Word in Genesis 12:3 and believe I; teach our children and grandchildren to love Israel …and with all our hearts and live our lives in fullness of the light of it!
Just over 3000 years ago, King David captured the City of Jerusalem, that was built on a hill, surrounded by a high wall, guard towers, deep valleys and with water resources provided by a large spring and protected by a unique fortification system. Shortly after, he named the city after himself – the “City of David,” and turned it into his capital, he built the 1st Holy Temple (1 Chronicles 22; 1 Kings 5:9) in 960 BC. Jerusalem became the “Eternal Capital” of Israel and the Jewish people …and the spiritual centre of the entire world. Centuries later, wherever the Jews were in exile, they would face towards Jerusalem during prayers, and would declare multiple times each year; “Next year in Jerusalem!” Eventually, the movement for the national restoration of the Jewish people was named - “Zionism,” after another one of the City’s name - “Zion.” The Hebrew name for a hill south of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is “Zion” upon which was built the City of David.
God is faithful to ALL His Covenant promises to Israel, the Church and the Nations... Great days are ahead for the fulfilling of the Gospel of the Kingdom. As we see God’s great Covenant promises coming to pass for His “firstborn,” Israel; we are assured that our redemption is certain and that the Lord’s coming is very near! Just as they have been through history, the Jewish people are again at the “epicentre” of controversy and increasingly are becoming the “scapegoat” for the world’s woes. Also within this “epicentre” are Christians who are increasingly suffering persecution and killed for the faith …which points towards the coming Great Tribulation. It is evident from the Scriptures and recent history that the “restoration” and return of the Jews to their own land is to happen in successive stages. We have witnessed the first stage taking place BEFORE the Second Coming of Christ, with a partial restoration. Jews have returned in great numbers to the Land - but only a remnant of “Messianic” believers knows Yeshua (Jesus). Today Israeli’s are facing the evil hatred of their enemies …and especially by surrounding Islamic nations. The next stage will be total restoration, by the “Mighty Hand of God” and will take place in the final act of Christ’s Second Coming and then will Israel be saved unto Him and weep as; “They shall look upon me whom they have pierced” …and will believe that Yeshua is their Messiah and Saviour! (Zechariah 12:10). The Word of the LORD is sure and Modern Israel is proof that God will stand with His Covenant people “against all odds.” Since Israel’s War of Independence, every time their enemies have attacked them with the goal of destroying them, Israel has received more of their Biblical land inheritance! Our God will get all the glory in the wars that their enemies scheme or plan …and Israel will be miraculously saved - like they were in 1948, 1967, 1973 and have been ever since!
US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israel was nothing short of “seismic” as literally shook the world as it was the first time in history that any major power had specifically recognized Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel in modern times. (In fact, the last power to recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel was the Roman Empire in 135 AD!) It immediately heightened the conflict over Jerusalem as prophesied in Zechariah 12. The nations of the world immediately responded by condemning Israel and America. This global conflict over Jerusalem, this tiny geographically insignificant city of rocks, is only more striking evidence that the Bible is the Word of God and that End-Time prophecy is coming to fulfilment!
Bible prophecy points to a time when the 3rd Temple will be rebuilt on the Temple Mount. How close are we to this prophecy being fulfilled? There are organizations in Israel dedicated to this very thing, the re-creation of the objects and offices needed for the restoration of the Temple. At the same time, the government of Israel knows that to initiate such an action would likely cause a world war. It would take some catastrophic or cataclysmic event, along with the “Hand of God,” for this to become a reality. It is important to keep in mind that Israel has NEVER returned to the land and NOT built the Temple …so it is inevitable that the 3rd temple is going to happen! America’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel was a “giant step” toward that ultimate goal! The newly reformed Jewish Sanhedrin has recently announced that they will be issuing a Temple standard that will bear the image of Donald Trump!
As believers, WHY is it so important that we pay attention to the “signs of the times” as it relates to Israel and the world? Because, the Lord has commanded us to! Elijah had to know the “signs of the times” in order to fulfil his calling. Paul had to know the “signs of the times” in order to fulfil his calling. And, as End-Time believers, we must certainly know the “signs of the times” in order to fulfil our calling …”for such a time as this!” We need to be alert, vigilant, and as watchmen on the walls looking for the approach of the dawn. And as, in the Hebrew wedding, the bride eagerly and in joyful expectation looks into the distance for the first signs of her bridegroom’s approach – so must we look for our “Bridegroom,” Yeshua’ who is coming back …“as a thief in the night!” Great judgments are on the horizon for all those who ignore God’s promises for Israel and the Gospel of the Kingdom. The promise of “peace and safety” can lull us to sleep unless we stay spiritually alert! During this time that we are living in, it is important that we stay focused in prayer and dedication for God’s work and for Israel. It is a sure fact that the enemies of Israel and of the Church are NOT going to be silent. The United Nations, anti-Semites and radical Islamists are always looking for their next attack and Israel knows this full well! In Israel it is NEVER the question of IF there will be another attack or war, but WHEN. We the Church are the Lord’s “watchmen” and must keep vigilant with the same alertness Israel has!
The Bible tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6) …we MUST continually lift up the Nation of Israel in our prayers! And, show our love by blessing the Lord’s brethren and stand in support as “watchmen” ready to defend Israel against the attacks of the world! Remember that the greatest gift we can give the Jewish people is the gift that they first gave to the world …the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), the Gospel of Salvation - Eternal life! You may not live in or visit Israel, but there’s a good chance that an Israeli child, Holocaust Survivor or a Jewish person is hearing about and seeing the love of the Messiah though the work and financial support of Pray4Zion and your kind generosity. It is the salvation of the Jewish people, more than any other fact that will usher in the soon coming of Messiah. You are more valuable than you may realise - Thank You!
Though the “kingdoms of man” are now collapsing, we have this and other prophecies in; Revelation 11:15; “Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever!’” This indicates that some of the” kingdoms, or governments, of this world” will NOT utterly crumble, but will transition into becoming part of the “Kingdom of God.” Yeshua (Jesus) said that when He returns that He is going to separate all the “nations” into TWO groups; “sheep on the right” and “goats on the left” (Matthew 25:31-46) …and will take place immediately after the 2nd Coming of our Lord. Here He gives us the distinguishing characteristics of both and those He identifies as “sheep” will be welcomed into the Millennial Kingdom on Earth while the “goats” are consigned to eternal punishment. Since their eternal destiny is at stake here, the context is individual, not national. Although God has sometimes caused entire nations to suffer temporal punishment, He does NOT condemn the righteous with the wicked. And, in John 3:3; Yeshua (Jesus) tells us that only those who are “born again” can enter the Kingdom. Nations cannot be “born again” …and so this is a judgment of individuals in the “Tribulation” - the survivors. As we are called to be “salt and light” in this world and both “watchmen and shepherds,” we should care deeply that in whatever nation we have been born into, or sent to, becomes a “sheep nation” and not a “goat nation!”
Who are the “they” who say “Peace and Safety?”…just before the end comes? It is unlikely that any part of this world could proclaim such a thing without the co-operation or direction of the major political powers! Thus, it appears that the EU and world rulers of the nations will play a large part in the outworking of this prophecy. The UN who is “supposedly dedicated to peace,” could also play a major role since they are mostly anti-Israel and dividing nations of the world into either; “sheep nations” that stand with Israel …or the “goat nations” who don’t! Since they are much a part of the world and are “committing fornication with the kings of the earth,” and likely will support or actively promote the efforts that the “Global” political powers that will come against Israel in End-Times. They will falsely declare that God has said; “Peace is what Israel will come to have.” Instead, God was soon to bring calamity on them, as His prophet Jeremiah foretold in Jeremiah 23:16-22. Of this we can be certain: The cry of “Peace and security!”â€‹ - Whatever form it takes - does NOT mean that the underlying condition of this world will have been reversed. Nor does it mean that the nations will disarm or give up their hostile attitudes. “‘There is NO peace,’ my God has said, ‘for the wicked ones.’” – Isaiah 57:21. It is just that, for the moment, world leaders - out of desperation or because of seeing some selfish advantage in pursuing some new policies, will cry; “Peace and Safety!” - in a more pronounced way than before … but, we as true believers know in the End-Times this “peace” WILL bring the great wars against Israel - just as prophesied in the Bible! Once we begin to see EVERYTHING through the “Kingdom of God”- even the greatest works of man begin to look boring and insignificant as we look upwards! We can surely understand why some who begin seeing the “Kingdom” simply lose all interest and hope in the governments of this world and the ways of man. The greatest message of hope the world has ever, or will ever hear is the Gospel of the Kingdom!
We most sincerely believe that God WILL bless you for your faithfulness and love for His land and His chosen people. God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them. This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you once again for your prayers and generous support!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
