May the Lord bless you during this Year 2006!

The Bible says that in the end times the fourth and final beast ?will speak out against the Most High AND WEAR DOWN THE SAINTS of the Highest One.? (Daniel 7:25)

This is a very serious verse for it describes a reality many preachers do not like to refer to, the seeming supremacy during the end times of the Evil One and his schemes.

The Bible says that in the end times the fourth and final beast ?will speak out against the Most High AND WEAR DOWN THE SAINTS of the Highest One.? (Daniel 7:25)

This is a very serious verse for it describes a reality many preachers do not like to refer to, the seeming supremacy during the end times of the Evil One and his schemes. But those who know what is happening to real and serious believers struggling to keep faithful to the Lord and His way realize the utter truth that these verses describe. People have breakdowns, burnouts, health problems and various other attacks and trials visited upon them. Not for nothing Jesus said that unless the Lord would shorten these awful end days, NO FLESH would make it ? or be saved as he said.

So let us all enter into this just begun New Year, gritting our teeth knowing that many around us are experiencing various trials, temptations and tribulations. Let us nevertheless rejoice that our Lord is great, merciful and very powerful ? all powerful in heaven and in earth and that as Paul says, He will not let us be tempted or tried above what we are able ? but will also provide a way of escape for us so that we shall be able to endure it (see 1 Corinthians 10:13).

May we therefore with this grit and assurance enter the New Year just begun knowing that He is faithful and will accomplish with us and in us the work that He began. We only need to look to Him, the author and finisher of our Faith and hold on to Him in faith and obedience. As obedience to Him is more important than the sacrifices we make for Him and others. May we so draw our strength form Him as we watch and pray continually, every one of the 365 days before us and see the mighty victories of our Lord in our lives and in the body of His believers and with Israel. The Lord so bless 2006 for us all!

May the Lord so burn in our hearts in relation to these serious, trying and tiring times the apt words of the author of Hebrews:

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.”

Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed. Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:3-5, 12-14)

So let us not give up but persevere at all costs ? knowing that in the end like with Job the Lord is gracious and full of mercy. He will bring us through ? like He did Job, and blessed him greatly. May that be true for us. God bless you therefore during this New Year in every way.

WHAT UTTER DECEPTION! THE PLO REJECTS ALL PEACE DEALS.

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
