On a daily basis, the news continues to show that God’s Word, including Bible prophecy, is absolutely true.
Here are several examples:
First, it was recently reported that Pope Francis told the king of Morocco that Jerusalem is the “common patrimony (inheritance) of humanity and especially the followers of the three monotheistic religions.”
I interpret this to mean that Pope Francis believes that Jerusalem belongs to the world and especially to the three religions that trace their roots back to Abraham.
If I am right, Pope Francis is either totally in the dark about what the Bible teaches or he is a false teacher that doesn’t believe the Bible.
God does not contradict His written Word.
Second, I was recently honored to speak at the Mid-America Prophecy Conference in Tulsa, Ok.
Dr. Mike Gendron, a former Roman Catholic and an expert on Bible prophecy, was one of the speakers.
Dr. Gendron is a former corporate executive and the founder of Proclaiming the Gospel ministry.
He has devoted his life to exposing false doctrines in the Roman Catholic Church.
I said to Mike, “I am not ready to say that Pope Francis is the False Prophet, but I admit that he has me wondering about it. What is your opinion?”
Mike’s reply went something like this, “If we are as close to the return of the Lord as it seems, we have to admit that he is the only candidate on the scene.”
I got the impression that Mike believes that the Roman Catholic Church and Islam will come together to form the one-world religion, and Pope Francis is the most likely person to head it up.
Considering the Pope’s age (82) and that he would have to be alive and active until the end of the seven-year Tribulation Period, a one-world religion would have to be close.
Third, the Bible is clear that God is against the division of the Promised Land.
Three days before the April 9, 2019, Israeli elections, the polls showed that Prime Min. Netanyahu would lose.
In a TV interview on Apr. 6, 2019, Prime Min. Netanyahu promised to extend Israeli sovereignty over all of the Jewish settlements on the West Bank, if he was re-elected.
He said he will not allow the Palestinian Authority (PA) to rule over the Jewish settlements on the West Bank.
He may let the PA rule over some Arab communities on the West Bank, but he will not allow them to have a separate army, air force, etc.
Mr. Netanyahu’s strongest opponent called these promises irresponsible, and the election suddenly flipped.
Mr. Netanyahu took a Biblical stand against dividing the Promised Land, and he came from behind over the next three days to win re-election.
Fourth, the disciples asked Jesus about the sign of His coming, and of the end of the age” (Matt. 24:3).
Among other things, He said, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled (Matt. 24:32-35).
Notice two things: 1) Jesus said when Israel is young and growing you will know that His return is near, and 2) Near means the generation of Jews that sees a convergence of all of the prophecies won’t pass away until everything is fulfilled.
In 1948, Israel became a nation again.
In 1967, Israel retook East Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and the Golan Heights.
In 2018, the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem.
In 2019, the U.S. recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
In 2019, Prime Min. Netanyahu said he intends to annex the Jewish settlements on the West Bank.
Israel is literally a young and growing nation that will soon be 71 years old.
Fifth, in late March, the city of San Antonio, TX, banned Chick-Fil-A from doing business (buying and selling) at the city airport because of the company’s religious beliefs.
This is a good example of the Mark of the Beast that will be used to force people that want to buy and sell to support world government dogma.
San Antonio has been asked to reconsider its decision to keep Chick-Fil-A from buying and selling its products because of the owner’s religious beliefs, and we should pray that they do.
In the meantime, please support Chick-Fil-A for standing on the Word of God.
Sixth, on Apr. 13, 2019, Israel struck Iranian targets near a Russian base in Syria.
Israel has taken responsibility; it has been reported that several Syrian, Iranian and pro-Iranian troops were killed, 17 others were wounded, and satellite photos show that the destruction was extensive.
The Iranians are furious because Russia didn’t try to shoot down the Israeli jets.
It turns out that Pres. Trump had sent a back-door message to Vladimir Putin to leave Israel’s jets alone.
Mr. Putin understands that Pres. Trump might protect Israel if Russia starts trying to shoot down Israel’s jets.
Please pray for the U.S. to continue to support Israel.
Seventh, this week it was reported that another new gas field has been discovered off the coast of Israel.
This solidifies Israel’s position as a global energy superpower.
It also adds to the proof that God’s Word, including Bible prophecy, is absolutely true.
