Below are my comments on several stories that recently made the news.
One, according to the Bible, Israel will go back under the Law, rebuild the Temple, and resume the animal sacrifices, etc., during the Tribulation Period.
On July 19, 2018, Israel’s Knesset passed the 15th Basic Law of Israel that, among other things, recognizes the feasts of the Lord as national holidays.
Doing that was a giant step toward going back under the Law.
Two, on Feb. 21, 2019, Pope Francis opened a summit at the Vatican to discuss the sexual abuse of children, nuns and others in the Roman Catholic Church.
An open letter by two prominent cardinals, Burke and Brandmuller, struck a note with me.
They said the Church is being accused of an abuse of power (and that is happening and it is very serious), but the issue is greater than an abuse of power.
The greatest sin is that the clergy that are committing these sins have abandoned “the truth of the gospel.”
It seems to me that “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” is a very appropriate title for the religious fornicators that are doing these things (Rev. 17:5).
If these sick men aren’t a fulfillment of II Tim. 3:1-7 (unholy, without natural affection, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, form of godliness, etc.), I don’t know what that passage of Scripture means.
Three, I was recently honored to speak at a Church that had a visiting pastor in the congregation who had just returned from a trip to Israel.
The visiting pastor told me, “Buildings are going up all over Jerusalem. There were construction cranes sticking up in the air everywhere I looked.”
Jerusalem is growing in every direction, and that is a literal fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
Four, on Feb. 20, 2019, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nikolay Mladenoy, told the UN Security Council “the risk of war between Israel and the Palestinians continues to loom large.”
According to this UN official, several factors are pushing the situation to a “breaking point.”
Along this same line, on Feb. 17, 2019, Iran’s Foreign Minister said, “The chances of war with Israel are great.”
In fact, Iran has just announced that U.S. sanctions on Iran are having a major impact and causing the Iranian people to suffer.
The Battle of Gog and Magog won’t happen until God sets the hook, but God can trigger events to bring that on and set the hook anytime He wants.
We know that there will be war (possibly Psa. 83, Isa. 17, etc.) before Gog and Magog, but they (and Gog and Magog) could take place in rapid succession.
There could be an extended period of time between them, but we don’t know that it will be that way.
Five, since former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s interview on CBS News, there should be no more questions about the existence of a shadow government in the U.S.
McCabe admitted on video that officials in the FBI and DOJ discussed ways to bring down Pres. Trump.
His admission reveals real collusion.
Six, I have been asked if Pres. Trump’s faith advisers are warning him about dividing Israel and if I think he will be re-elected.
On Feb. 26, 2019, it was reported that Pres. Trump’s proposed peace plan is facing fierce opposition from Evangelicals in the U.S.
Pres. Trump’s faith advisers and several other church leaders have made it clear to him that they will oppose any proposal that endangers Israel (Praise God).
They told Mr. Trump that they supported him because of his strong support for Israel.
But if his position on Israel has changed, their position on him has changed.
The article didn’t say it, but I believe that there is a strong possibility that he cannot win the election in 2020, if he puts forth a plan to divide Israel and Jerusalem.
This will put Evangelicals in the middle, throw the door wide open on the next election and bring the judgment of God on America (This needs prayer).
Seven, in recent weeks, several states have rushed to remove all limits on abortion.
Some of the statements and proposals about killing babies are appalling.
Two signs of the last days are people without natural affection, and people who are lovers of their own selves (II Tim. 3:1-5).
In my opinion, among other things, any person that can kill a normal newborn baby is without natural affection.
Any mother that can kill her normal newborn baby under the pretense of protecting the mother’s own health is a lover of her own self.
42 million abortions worldwide in 2018 is 42 million reasons to believe the last days have arrived
