More often than not a stew is a combination of water, vegetables and meat. This article is a combination of recent things (water of the Word, milk and meat), that this writer thinks some will find interesting.
First, in his fast traffic blog posted on Sept. 22, 2015, Joel Rosenberg reported that millions of Jews have started searching for the Messiah. They are studying the Hebrew Scriptures, the New Testament, using Google to search the Internet, watching videos on YouTube, etc. (http://www.quickening-spirit.com/breaking-news/flash-traffic/)
The angel Gabriel gave Daniel this message:
“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary” (Dan. 9:25-26a).
Many Jews have suddenly discovered that their Hebrew Scriptures teach that their Messiah would appear and be cut off before Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed. They know that Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed in 70 A.D. So a great number of Jews are searching for information about the death of their Messiah before 70 A.D.
Some have discovered that their Scriptures say their Messiah would establish a new covenant with them (Jer. 31:31-32). Many will resume the animal sacrifices (Dan. 9:27), but ultimately according to Paul, “All Israel shall be saved” (Rom. 11:26).
Second, it has been written that the Koran says: 1) “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable” (Surah 3:85; 2) “Terrorize and behead those who believe in Scriptures other than the Koran” (Surah 8:12; 3) “The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them” (Surah 9:30: 4) “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies” (Surah 22:19), and more.
This is significant because Pope Francis addressed a crowd at the White House on Sept. 23, 2015 and said, “The spiritual teachings contained therein (in the Koran), are just as valid as the Holy Bible, and should therefore be respected as such.” He said, “Jesus Christ, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world.”
More examples could be given, but it is the opinion of this writer that equating the Koran with the Bible; or equating Jesus and Jehovah with Allah is false doctrine. And since this false doctrine is coming from the head of the Roman Catholic Church, it will lead multitudes astray.
Third, Pope Francis said, “We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now.” “Merging our faiths” is a call for a one-world religion. Evidently, the Pope thinks we need to start merging our faiths now because the UN wants to establish a one-world government by 2030.
It is important for readers to know that the Bible teaches that the coming world religion will be a satanic world religion. Its leader (called the False Prophet) will speak like Satan and have the power of the Antichrist (Rev. 13:8-12). If the religions of the world are going to be merged in the next 15 years, persecution is going to dramatically increase in a hurry.
Fourth, on Sept. 24, 2015, the Vicar of Christ (Representative of Christ; in this case, Pope Francis) addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time in history; everything he did was preplanned; no one prayed and Jesus was never mentioned.
America is in deep trouble and this shows that our leaders are too politically correct to seek Jehovah’s help. They obviously thought a prayer could be controversial or offensive so they decided to leave it off the schedule.
Fifth, a man named Bill Clemens sent this writer an e-mail. Bill knows that no one knows the day or the hour of our Lord’s return, but he also knows that God often does things at set times. Bill read the UN Agenda 2030 document on the UN Website and concluded that 2030 is the target date for a one-world government. He added 7 years to 2030 and arrived at 2037 as a possible date for the end of the Tribulation period and the fulfillment of all things including the Second Coming of Jesus.
Bill used the word “if” and is not predicting anything, but he astutely recognized that if the terminal generation is 70 years long, and if it started in 1967 (when Israel captured East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount), the terminal generation would see all things fulfilled by 2037. This piqued my interest, Bill. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Some prophecy teachers, including this one, think that there is a gap of unknown length between the Rapture and the Tribulation period. It is probably not right, but wouldn’t it be nice for the saved if that gap is about 14 -15 years? I wonder how long it is.
