Almost Saved But Entirely Lost: “As It Was In The ‘Days’ Of Lot” – Rampant Sexual Perversion, Socio-Material Affluenza Compounded By Moral And Religious Breakdown

Submitted by Terence Blackett

 

The Khajuraho Monument

As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will all these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the world?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My Name, claiming that I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come…”

“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ [as] spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again. “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the Elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the very Elect. See, I have told you ahead of time…”

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man…” Matthew 24:4-26 (New International Version, ©2010)

“As it was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed… (Luke 17:28-30 Ibid, ©2010).

Can anyone deny that we are indeed the Matthew chapter 24 generation? At no other time in all of recorded human history has there been a need for a more urgent call to arms. Yet the weapons of our warfare are NOT* guns and bullets but the last bastions of “TRUTH”, Righteousness, Morality and a decision that “If God be God – then serve Him – but if Satan be ‘god’ then serve him”. There can be no sitting on the fence any longer. There is no middle ground or 3rd way!

Clearly this is an “Age” of so-called faith without works; men want freedom without accountability; seeking happiness without holiness; searching for riches without a moral compass of integrity and knocking on the door of “Paradise” but without having soul purity. This is the days of Lot!

In our modern world, men have seen the graphic nature of an exploding nuclear bomb and the horrific devastation it can cause, but who has ever heard of fire and brimstone raining down from the heavens completely annihilating the two cities of Sodom & Gomorrah because of its inhumanity, its treatment of the poor, its licentious perverted sexual appetites and its false economic security caused by affluenza and the need to get rich or DIE* trying. Science can give us natural (if not inhuman) phenomenon but the destruction wrought in the days of Lot was a “supernatural” act of God-like proportion brought to bear upon men because of disobedience and a complete disregard for the Law of God.

One writer puts it so succinctly – “Never did this message apply with greater force than it applies today. More and more the world is setting at naught the claims of God. Men have become bold in transgression. The wickedness of the inhabitants of the world has almost filled up the measure of their iniquity. This earth has almost reached the place where God will permit the destroyer to work his will upon it. The substitution of the laws of men for the Law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday in place of the Bible Sabbath, is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universal, God will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth. He will come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the world for their iniquity, and the earth shall disclose her blood and shall no more cover her slain.”

Yet with all the warnings, signs, wonders and portents we are witnessing today – men’s hearts are still hardened against the things of God. Let it be clear that God shall act decisively at some point in the near future just as He did in the days of Lot. When earthly rebellion has reached tipping-point; where political leaders in cahoots with religious false prophets do malicious violence to God’s Holy Law by instituting man-made laws and decrees such as laws that redefine marriage and the family; legalize the killing of helpless babies through abortion and infanticide; gives a nod of approval to rampant prostitution through salacious pornography, paedophilia and incest and where the ultimate worship of Sunday is enacted as the law of the land and men both great and small are expected to worship according to the legislation in the land – hence we can see why God uses the tragedy of Lot as a viral resource reminder for us to understand the gravity, parity, polarity and the penalty for devilish transgression.

As we survey a postmodern world in major social, economic and religious upheaval, it is easy to see the correlation between the days of Lot and the days we now live in. We are reminded that “In the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]. For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good. [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God. For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them].” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (Amplified Bible)

Just as in the days of Lot, he escaped the inferno with his wife and two daughters – so we too must do the same. Sadly, Lot’s wife disobeyed the commands given to her and perished as a result. Lot’s wife is representative of that major class of people in the last days who are “almost saved but entirely lost” due to compromise, wanting to do things their own way and really didn’t have a true change of heart.

Rampant sexual perversion, socio-material affluenza compounded by moral and religious breakdown epitomizes the days in which we currently live and just as Sodom was given a long rope – it had to be reeled in. Finally God had heard the prayer requests of Abraham and would not have destroyed the cities of the plain had He been able to find even [10] righteous people there – in the end, their cup of iniquity was full and annihilation and complete destruction was the only just course of action for a God who will only tolerate so much and no more!

So there’s no counter-argument, “For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative. For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks).”

“So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]. And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it)…”

For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one. And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another – men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.”

“And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.” Romans 1:18-32 (Amplified Bible)

This is the pathetic state affairs our world finds itself in and if Christ is not the answer – then tell me what is!!!

    Bank Run In… Korea

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/18/2011 16:45 -0500

    When one thinks of South Korea one tends to think of stable government and an even more stable financial system. That may change very soon. According to JoongAng Daily, “more than a thousand customers lined up in front of the Busan II Savings Bank located in Busan yesterday as soon as the nation’s financial regulator announced a six-month business suspension of Busan Savings Bank and its affiliate Daejeon Mutual Savings Bank.” And not helping the mood was a bank employee who told the crowd that “You won’t be allowed to withdraw your money if you are just standing there without a queue ticket number.”

    Needless to say, most promptly got a number. Those that didn’t tried to get their cash at an ATM. Unsuccessfully: “Those without a ticket then headed to the automated teller machines to withdraw their money, but the machines quickly ran out of cash.”

    And while the bank run at Busan was driven by capital inadequacy (shockingly Korea still hasn’t figure out that the best way to mask liabilities surpassing assets is through pervasive fraud and suspension of all common sense accounting rules: they should promptly consult with Tim Geithner and Sheila Bair on the issue), it may promptly spread to the entire banking system. “Analysts expressed concerns that public panic about savings banks could spread. “The fears of depositors are mounting, which could lead to bank runs at a number of savings banks, and it could eventually spread to the entire savings bank industry,” said Jung Sung-tae, a researcher at LG Economic Institute.” But fear not, for the Korean government is one step ahead: “A way to secure capital [for savings banks] is to establish a joint account holding fund amounting to 10 trillion won,” explained Kim Seok-dong, FSC chairman. “This problem will be closely discussed with the National Assembly.” Any day now Korea will end up with its own version of a taxpayer funded capital block hole, a/k/a in the US as the FDIC, and all problems will be promptly brushed under the rug. We can’t wait until this brilliant idea comes to China (advised by Goldman Sachs no doubt). We just wonder if it will be before or after the Chinese bank run hits…

    From JoongAng:

    “I’ve saved 40 million won ($35,810) over my whole life. That money was going to be used for my grandson’s marriage but I cannot trust these people [bank employees] saying that I am guaranteed to get my money back,” said Cho So-young, 79.

    Although operations of three of Busan Savings Bank’s four affiliates were not suspended, there are fears that they could be hit by a bank run on their deposits.

    In the case of Busan II Savings Bank, its capital adequacy ratio stood at 6.0 percent as of the end of 2010, but its liabilities exceeded assets by 12.5 billion won.

    Two other affiliates, Jungang Busan Savings Bank and Jeonju Savings Bank, have capital adequacy ratios of 3.6 percent and 5.6 percent, respectively. But they are unlikely to avoid a suspension of business if a bank run occurs.

    The state-run Korea Finance Corporation and four commercial banks – Woori, Kookmin, Shinhan and Hana – have decided to inject 2 trillion won of emergency liquidity into the savings bank sector.

    In addition, the government has decided to extend the amount of loans that can be borrowed by the Korea Federation of Savings Banks to support savings banks from the current 600 billion won to 3 trillion won.

    Financial authorities are currently working to establish a joint deposit insurance account as a safety net for other financial sectors to curb the spread of possible financial risks from the savings banks. Funds for a joint deposit insurance account would be collected by financial institutions.

    It is refreshing to see that both US banking insolvency, and its means of dealing with problems (insert head firmly and deeply in sand) are spreading across the world. And with that in mind, and a drink in hand, we now await for the daily trickle of press releases from the FDIC describing today’s roster of Failure Friday banks, which have really failed in not realizing that the only way to avoid bankruptcy is to merge with everyone else who is just as insolvent and become a systemic risk.

    Understanding the science is frankly immaterial…

    Science has created technologies which undermine human existence. And although scientific advances have proven beneficial in some ways to human existence – the antithesis has been so much more sinister…

    The reality is that scientists are fallible human beings with weaknesses and shortcomings, biases and prejudices and oftentimes flawed theoretical positions they base in so-called factual, empirical science…

    The ominous nature of science has created a “brave new world”; so-called intelligent design; “The Manhattan Project” and military technology that can incinerate an entire planet; “PHARMACEUTICAL ‘death’ CONCOCTIONS”; gene therapy which can possibly could get out of hand; video game technology that’s damaging the minds of our youth; Frankenstein foods created by Monsanto et al … the LIST* is endless!!!

    Hopi, there have been only a few things able to unite Arabs in all their history. The most important unifier was Mohammad and the initial impact of Islam. But over time, even religion could not hold
    the different Arab tribes together.

    In our present era, the most powerful unifying factor of all has arisen. Nothing can unite the waring Muslim factions like their age-old hatred for Jews and the reborn State of Israel. To Muslims, the State of Israel’s existence in the midst of what they consider their sacred sphere of the world is the ultimate sacrilege. It is an insult to Allah that must be revenged. To the Muslim, the FACT that Israel has BEATEN them in FIVE WARS threatens the veracity of the Koran, which promises them victory over the infidels, especially when it is a “Jihad to liberate their third holiest site – Jerusalem.” This is terible “humiliation” that must be avenged for the sake and honor of Allah and the Koran. This escalates into a passion that cannot be fathomed by the West.

    Hopi, listen to the prophetic scenario on exactly what began in 1948/9 only hours after the official sanctioned statehood of Israel by the League of Nations, the precusor to the UN, with the combined military might of the Arab/Mulim nations, to annihilate Israel and the Jews, and every time they attempt to WIPE Israel off the earth, they are soundly defeated, EVERY TIME, why is this SO?

    Armageddon: The Climax of Hate!

    “They say, ‘Come, LET US WIPE THEM OUT AS A NATION; LET THE NAME OF ISRAEL BE REMEMBERED NO MORE,” They conspire with one accord, against You they make a covenant – tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites (The Arabs), Moab and Hagrites, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek (Jordan), Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre (Lebanon); Assyria (Syria) also joined them…” (Psalm 83: 4-8, Emphasis added)

    Hopi, the above from Psalms taken from the Old Testament, (1000-300 B.C) literally sounds as though it was written within the last 63 years, applying ALL that has been said in HATRED against the modern day state of Israel, by its Arab/Muslim HATERS, dosen’t it, but, Almighty God’s prophetic declarations NEVER FAIL, as HE knows and forsees ALL things, spoken through His prophets, as He divinely ispired them to record these and other End-Time events, ALL consistently unfoldring as He said it would.

    Let us read on from His Word, the Bible:

    “The Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: “Have you not noticed that these people ( Israel’s neighboring nations ate saying, “The LORD has rejected the two families he chose’? SO THEY DESPISE MY PEOPLE AND NO LONGER REGARD THEM AS A NATION>” ‘This is what the LORD says: “If I have not established MY COVENANT with day and night and FIXED LAWS of heaven and earth, then I will eject the descendants of Jacob and David My servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I WILL bring them back from captivity and have compassion of them.” (Jeremiah 33: 23-26 Emphasis added)

    Hopi, hear what Almighty God then says to the Haters of Israel, the Arab/Muslim people.

    “I WILL lay waste your cities, and you will become a desolution. Then you will KNOW than I am the LORD. BECAUSE YOU (the Arab people) HAVE HAD EVERLASTING ENMITY and have delivered the sons of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the punishment of the end-time, therefore, as I LIVE, ” declares the LORD God, “I will give YOU over to bloodshed, and bloodshed WILL pursue you, since you have NOT hated bloodshed, theirfore bloodshed will pursue you.” (Ezekiel 35: 4-6 Emphasis added).

    Overview of Prophetic Scenario

    Hopi, beginning 3400 years ago and continuing into the next 1400 years, the Hebrew prophets of Almighty God, predicted a PRICISE sequence of events would fit together. All the elements of this predicted pattern would lead to a cataclysmic WAR of such magnitude that it will almost end life on this planet.

    Hopi, the scenarion, has and IS literally unfolding exactly as the LORD God said it would, especially re Israel and its ancient HATERS of its very existence on earth, now formenting daily, for the beginning of World War III, plus the other convergeance of economic crisis, the devaluation of the US dollar, etc, etc, AND it is with the rebirth of Israel, that IS the KEY sign and factor, May 15, 1948, when the miraculous return of the Jews to their ancient homeland, having been scattered throughout the world, especially in Arab nations, that the END-TIME events unfold rapidly.

    It WAS when Jerusalem was finally recaptured by Israel in the 1967, six day war, for the first time in over 2000 years, that Islam’s Jihad for Jerusalem began in earnest, hear again the Word of God on Jerusalem.

    “Behold, I am going to make JERUSALEM a cup that causes INTOXICATION to ALL surrounding peoples; and when the siege is AGAINST Jerusalem,, it will also be against Judah (the Jews). And it will come about in that DAY (season) that I will make JERUSALEM a BURDENSOME stone for ALL the peoples; who ATTEMPT to lift it will be SEVERELY injured. And ALL the nations of the earth will be gathered (for WAR) because of IT.” (Zechariah 12: 2-3 Emphasis added)

    As prophesied in God’s Word, the Bible, Israel has regained control of its ancient Capital city, Jerusalem, amid tremendous opposition from surrounding nations. Like the prophet Zachariah forsaw some 2450 years ago, Jerusalem will cause all of the neighboring natins (which are Muslim today) to become intoxicated with religious passion to possess it.

    The metaphor, “a cup that causes INTOXICATION” is used in the Bible to illustrate OUT OF CONTROL religious passions. Just as a drunk person acts emotionally without reason, so it was predicted the neighboring states would be intoxicated with this Islamist driven, vehement hatred against Israel, and Jerusalem. (THE EVERLASTING HATRED, The Roots of Jihad, pp. 225-229)

    Hopi, we can speculate, spiritualize, form all kinds of humanistic, spiritualistic concepts and biased opinions on this unfolding crisis in the Middle East, and other world events, BUT, there is only one Divinely inspired source of absolute revelation that gives us exactly the reasons why, and how this will all play out, and it would have been IMPOSSIBLE, even improble for any one man or group of ancient men, to have seen these events, so graphically clear and precise, over THOUSANDS of years ago, UNLESS Almighty God, gave and revealed it to them, and this is what HE DID. It can be scoffed at, rediculed, but it simplu cannot be refuted, as it has, and continues to unfold with:

    Logical consistency
    Empirical adequacy, and,
    Experiential relevancy.

    ‘History is written by the victors.”

    Well, in this case, Israel was for thousands of years, the dispersed VICTIMS, scattered througout the nations of the world, exactly as prophesied in the Word of God, the Bible. Their dispersion in 135 A.D, by emperor Hadrian of Rome, lasted right through until, the 19th century, VICTIMS of abuse, pillage, murder, and second class citizens in the Arab countries they lived in for hundreds of years, and had to FLEE, from their homes, businesses, properties, for Israel, the only place that historically and rightfully IS their homeland.

    BTW, tell me how they the Jews, in Israel, since 1948, have so well orchastrated their persecution and repeated TERRORISM from their Arab/Muslim HATERS, they wrote all of this too?

    Also, when Almighty God, of historic divine revelation, SPOKE that once He brought them back to Israel, AFTER multiplied centuries of DISPERSION, that they would NEVER AGAIN be uprooted from their ancient Capital, Jerusalem, and no matter how hard the HATERS of Israel try, in combined force, these Islamists Jihadists, CANNOT defeat the Jew, or every remove them again from their, God-given homeland.

    So, Hopi et al, you can HUFF and PUFF, rant and rage, together with your sand coloured Islamists brothers, BUT, you nor them, will EVER be able to EVER again defeat Israel, yes, it may appear, as the Word of God states, that Jerusalem will be trodden down by its enemies, when all seems to be lost, the KING OF KINGS, and LORD OF LORDS, Jesus Christ, will make His Glorious, Majestic appearance in the sky, and just by the breath of His Omnipotent mouth, will DESTROY all of the enemies of Israel, and the arrayed Anti-Christ, Satanic World Government, it is only a matter of time, not in the too distant future either, it is around the corner, just wait and see!

    Hopi, You are wilfully ignorant of the historic FACTS, from 135 A.D, throughout the following centuries, of the dispersion of the Jews, until, their miraculous regathering by Almighty God, exactly as He promised He would, inspite of their terribly failing Him, back to their ancient homeland, Israel, in May 14, 1948.

    Hopi, lets look at some of the facts, numbers, math, taken from the Old Testament dates and prophecies, concerning Israel’s rebirth in modern times, May 14, 1948.

    The utterly miraculous regathering of Jews from the North, East, etc, as Almighty God declared He would do, in bringng them back HOME, to Israel, are strikingly supported by the FACTS and math, when carefully analysized; as predicted 2,500 years in advance.

    2, 520 years X 360 days/year = 907, 200 days.
    907, 200 days = 2,483 ‘modern’ exact (365.24225) years + 304 days ‘left over’

    Therefore, we take,

    July 15, 537 B.C.
    + 1 year (because there is no year 0)
    + 2, 483 years
    +304 days = May 14, 1948, the exact day Israel was officially proclaimed a State, by Jewish leader, David Ben Gurion.

    Hopi, only the Omnipotent hand of Almighty God, NOT man, could fulfill with such amazing accuracy, HIS prophetic declaration on the people, the Jews and their modern-day State, Israel, after multiplied centuries of dispersion, from this, their ancient home land, ISRAEL!

    Now, Hopi, lets have a brief look at the Lord Jesus Christ, and His fulfillment of OT prophecies concerning Himself as Messiah, which came to pass exactly as spoken from the Old Testament.

    The numbers, (math) when computed from the OT text, work out exactly to the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem, AND, it was the ONLY time, that He officially presented Himself to Israel (the Jews) as their Messiah.

    Daniel prophesied that after this, that Jesus, Messiah, would be violently murdered, NOT for Himself, BUT, for the sins of all of mankind.

    Let us look at the numbers (math) as taken from Daniel and Nehemiah, bearing in mind, that a year in the Bible always refers to a Jewish year of 360 days, the prophecy was written in Babylon, which also used a 360-day year.

    69 ‘sevens’ = 69x 7 Jewish years = 483 Jewish years.

    483 Jewish years = 483 x 360 days = 173, 880 days.

    Therefore, we need to add 173, 880 days to the start date of 1 Nisan, 445 B.C. to see the date of the prophecy, 173, 880 days = 476 ‘modern’ (365.25 days) year + 21 days ‘left over’

    So, again, we take: Nisan 1, 445 B.C. + 1 year (because there is no year 0) + 476 year, and this comes out to March 14, 32 A.D.

    From this date, add 2 days (because there is no leap year every 400 years and we passed two of them) and add the 21 days we had ‘left over’

    The result is Sunday, April 6, A.D. 32, ‘Palm Sunday’ the exact day of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Confirmed by the NT Gospel narrative accounts.

    Hopi, only wilfully intellectually DISHONEST people, could deny the absolute reality, of these FACTS, that ONLY Almighty God, the One True and Living God, could FULFILL His Word, as declared HUNDREDS of years before, re His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, in such exact detail, dates, etc.

    Oh, BTW, there are Ten Bible Prophecies fulfilled in recent times, AFTER 1948, when Israel became an independent Nation for the second time in history. These prophecies foretold of modern Israel’s stunning military victories, and of its transition from a DESERT wasteland, to one of the most prosperous nations, ever!

    Hopi, a few more amazing facts concerning the ‘promised’ land, that Almighty God, covenanted to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants, the Jews, as an Everlasting Possession, the nation of Israel.

    The Prophecy of “Rejuvenation”

    “Certainly, the Land;s bountifulness was magnificant for the first 1500 years after the Exodus from Egypt. Certainly, the subsequent 1800 year-long miracle of DEFICIENCY and DEPRIVATION was impressive in its own right ( besides the ‘unexpectedness’ of its appearance and the absence of scientific explanation to account for this phenomenon). Yet, several other miracles were appended and these miracles were most remarkable due, also, to there SUDDEN and rationally inexplicable appearance. After 1800 years of drought and with no apparent scientific explanation, the hills began BLOSSOMING at the turn of the 20th Century. You must pay attention to what follows: For more than 1500 years the HolyLand blossomed, and for the next 1800 years it didn’t rain for the Jews in Palestine. It didn’t rain for the Romans. It didn’t rain for e Mongols. It didn’t rain for the Crusaders. It didn’t rain for the Turks. It didn’t rain for ANYBODY for 1800 years. And THEN, for no apparent reason, at the turn of the 20th Century, for the first time in nearly two millennia, the Holy Land suddenly began to experience normal amounts of rainfall, amounts necessary to sustain life. Also, with no apparent scientific explanation, earthquakes stopped killing people. Can any one believe that these events were simply acts of happenstance?”

    “If this sudden resumption of rain wasn’t remarkable enough, another momumental event occurred. After prolonged absence of 1800 years- and again, withy no reasonable explanation – the Jews suddenly begin resettling the Holy Land in the early 1900s. Millions would return to the Holy Land in the 20th Century. So now, in the beginning of the 20th Century, with no logical explanation:”

    * Suddenly and coincidentally, 1800 years of horrible drought end.
    * Suddenly and coincendentally, the rains begin.
    * Suddenly and coincendentally, the reoccurring destructive earthquakes stop killing people.
    * Suddenly and coincendentally, the ‘randomly’ appearing lovust plagues also disappear.
    * Suddenly and coincendentally, the Land begins to blossom.
    * Suddenly and coincendentally, Jews return to the Land in the thousands, without a cohesive and rational explanation, millions of Jews will follow.

    “Do all these events really crop up so suddenly, coincendentally, and without scientific explanation? These events appear to occur without rhyme or reason only if one doesn’t study Torah and is, thus OBLIVIOUS to prophecy. A person who is OBLIVIOUS to Torah would NEVER be able to note how these unusual series of events are FORETOLD in the greatest of detail. Such a person would NEVER be able to note how these unusual series of events COMBINE into one magnificent and Divinely orchastrated pattern. On the other hand, the one who studies will note how Torah even describes the societal conditions under which these miracles unfold.”

    We are told by the Almighty:

    “Behold, the days are coming, says the Almighty…the mountaimns will drip the nectar fruits…I WILL BRING BACK the captives of My people Israel and they will rebuild the desolate cities and SETTLE them; they will plant vineyards and drink wine; they will cultivate gardens and eat their fruit. I WILL PLANT THEM UPON THEIR LAND and they will NEVER BE UPROOTED FROM THEIR LAND that I HAVE GIVEN THEM.” (Amos 9: 13-15 Emphasis added)

    “And so it happened that for 660,000 days there was virtually no rainfal and for 660,000 days there were many, many resultant deaths. THEN, as the Bible describes, in anticipation of many, many returing Jews, the Land suddenly begins to blossom once AGAIN.” (PROPHECIES For The Era of Muslim Terror, A Torah Perspective on World Events, pp. 34,35 Emphasis added)
    This is just skimming the surface of the historic FACTS, pertaining to the Jews, their ancient homeland, that became a virtual, barren, desert, with no rainfall, during their EXILE from it, AND, that it only starts to rain, and flourish AGAIN, WHEN, Almighty God brings back to it, His covenanted people the Jews, and its absolutely amazing developments, in literally every sphere of life, over the last 63 years since its statehood, in the 20th Century, IS a marval to behold, especially in the FACE of the most virulent, vehement, vicious ATTACKS upon this tinny small area of land, relative to the vast amounts of MILLIONS of square miles of land covering the Arab/Muslim nations, who only DESIRE ANNIHILATION of this Jewish state and Jews, BUT, they CAN’T, and NEVER WILL BE ABLE to defeat Israel, because, Almighty God, will NEVER AGAIN, as He declared, allow them Iarael to be uprooted!

    Here are (2) of Ten Bible prophecies fulfilled since the Jewish State of Israel was established in May, 1948.

    1. The ruins of Israel would be rebuilt.

    Bible passage: Amos 9:11, 13
    Written: About 750 B.C.
    Fulfilled: Late 1900s

    “In Amos 9: 11, 13, the prophet said that God would restore the land of David. ( King David ruled Israel from about 1010 BC to about 970 BC). The land of David – Israel – was conquered and destroyed by the Babylonians, Assyrians and Romans, The land has been in RUINS for much of the past 2000 years. The Jews, who had been scattered throughout the world, began to return in large numbers during the past hundred years. Since then, they have been rebuilding many of Israel’s ancient cities. Amos also said there would be continuous planting and harvesting. During the past 100 years, the Jews have been using advanced farming and irrigation techniques to turn BARREN land into productive farmland. Toda, Israel is a source of food for many countries.”

    Here is Amos 9: 11,13

    “In that day I will restore David’s fallen tent. I will repare its broken places, RESTORE its RUINS, and BUILD it as it used to be,” … “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountaina and flow from all hills.”

    2. Ezekiel prophecsied the modern-day Israel

    Bible passage: Ezekiel 36: 11
    Written: between 593-571 BC.
    Fulfilled: late 1900s

    “In Ezekiel 36: 11, the prophet said that there would come a time when Israel would be more prosperous than it was in the past. The Bible describes Israel as being a prosperous nation during the time of King David and King Solomon about 3000 years ago. But, Ezekiel knew a very different Israel. In Ezekiel’s day (he lived about 2600 years ago), the nothern Kindgom of Israel already had been decimated by the Assyrians, and the southern Kingdom (called Judah) was being destroyed by the Babylonians. In the centuries that followed these destructions, Jews rebuilt the city of Jerusalem, but the homeland was destoyed again, by the omans, about 1900 years ago. Since then, a majority of Jews from around the world moved to Israel and they have been rebuilding the country once again. Today, Israel again is an independent nation, as it was in the days of King David, and it IS one of the world’s most prosperous countries. In 1999, Israel had the highest per capita Gross Domestic Product of any nearby cpuntry, even though the surrounding countries have many oil resources.”

    Here is Ezekiel 36: 11

    “I will increase the number of men and animals upon you, and they will be fruitfull and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past, and will make you PROSPEROUS more than BEFORE. Then you will KNOW that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 36:11 Emphasis added)

    The correlation between the Old Testament prophecies, uttered by God’s divinely inspired men, the amazing gap of over 2000 years, between the dated prophecies, and their fulfillment, in Israel today, beginning only 63 years ago, (1948) is credible, warranted proof, of the veracity and reliability of Almighty God’s written Word, the Bible!

    Re Israel, similarly, Almighty God announces:

    “But, you, the mountains of ISRAEL – you will give forth blossoming branches and produce your luscious fruit for MY PEOPLE ISRAEL – For they are SOON TO ARRIVE…The land will be tilled and sown. I WILL make the people numerous- the entire House of Israel. The cities will be inhabited and ruins will be rebuilt…I WILL make it better than it ever WAS…They will inherit the land which will be theirs for a possession and the Land WILL NEVER AGAIN be bereaved of THEM.” (Ezekkiel 36: 8-12 Emphasis added)

    Here Almighty God provides us with two more, great prophecies about Israel and their Land.

    “AS an aside consider a few non-agricultural creations: the cell phone technology, most of the Windows NT and XP operating systems, the Pentium MMX Chip technology, the Pentium-4 microprocessor and the Centrino processor, voice mail technology, and the AOL Instant Messenger ICO. On a per-capita basis, Israel leads the world in the number of published books & scientific papers, start-up companies, NASDAQ listed companies, museums, and college degrees. Israel also has the highest concentration of hi-tec companies and one of the highest rates of filed patents. Recent developments also include: the first ingestible video camera (so small it fits inside a pill), a device that helps the heart pump blood (through a sophisticated system of sensors), the first fully computerized, no-radiation instrumentation for detecting breast cancer, the ClearLight device that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct (without damaging surrounding skin or tissue), and a laerge-scale solar-powered electricity generating plant in California. Israel’s $100 billio9n economy is larger than ALL of its immediate neighbors combined and Israel’s living standards already exceed that of England.”

    Another look at the no rainfall for 1800 years, and then, when the Jews start returing to their homeland, BOOM, the hand of Almighty God, starts favor once again, for its rightful inhabitants.

    “It is mind-boggling: NO RAIN for 1800 years, and then, just as incredible, rains begin to suddenly fall simply becauser Jews are once again returing to Israel. NO RAIN and, then, the sudden resumption of rain- both happening as predicted. This IS beyond the realm of coincidence: 1800 years of drought, in and of itself, is an unbelievable miracle and a very mighty prophecy – especially in a region which produced such bounty during its first 1500 years. This most prolonged drought ends ‘unexpectedly’ – again, as predicted – WHEN Jews begin returning to the Lans in great numbers. This IS a double prophecy who SIPERNATURAL qualities can never be captured by our limited languages.”

    The development is neither logical NOR statistically probable.

    * A once firtile land that suffers drought

    * 1800 years of starvation and DESERT conditions

    * Then the surprising resumption of RAIN

    * Then the sudden GREENING of the Land

    * Just as suddenly, the ultimate RETURN of millions of Jews.

    To those skeptics, scoffers, and unbelievers, DON’T MESS with Almighty God, and with Israel, let HIM deal with the wicked, godless Jews, and He will, as to the soveriegn NATION of Israel, He has an Everlasting Covenant, with this ‘entity’ and whoever messes with them, to ANNIHILATE them off the map, will ultimately FEEL His Wrath!

    So through your years of serious Bible Study you have divined that God decreed that Christ would be born on his first birthday!
    (WOW .. both an immaculate conception and delivery, two miracles for the price of one)

    So your research begs the question is the intelligent designer of the whole universe a grade C- maths student, or could your own biblical hermeneutics concievably be at fault?

    Which is it, are you or God wrong in your written calculations?
    The answer should be interesting, for those who give a toss.

    Obama’s Leftist associations and affiliations are gradually been revealed more and more!

    Obama’s former church leader, Rev. Wright, a known radical Liberation Theology exponent, visited Gadafi in Lybia, along with Louis Farrakan, a well known leader of the ‘Nation of Islam’ and his pronouncement, that Obama is, the Messiah, how very interesting are the connections of Obama, and his devious agenda, that’s wrapped in so many different shades of deception!

    I’m pretty sure that certain people with a three letter name on this blog knows where to find the ‘Synagogue of Satan’ in the Bible but they cannot explain it away with a long winded rant.

    Some reading I did recognised that many influential Romans converted to Judaism before the collapse of the Roman empire and were also scattered abroad at the time of the Jews.

    The puzzle has always been, what happened to the wealth of Rome, and where did these previously supposed poor Jews coming into Palestine from all over Europe get their wealth from?

    Another interesting point is that it is well known that Israeli money runs the United States and that the privately owned federal reserve has been headed by a succession of alleged Jews. The United States is really an extension of the Roman system of senators, with many symbols taken directly from the Roman empire.

    Putting 2 and 2 together one might believe that the wealth of Rome was hidden behind the facade of being Jewish. In many instances someone being raised as Jewish for generations in Europe would not have any idea that their ancestors were in fact wealthy Romans.

    These are the false Jews. Families like the Rothchilds and many other global elitist also claim Jewish descent. The Romans were the victors, they are the ones who shaped and manipulated ancient stories into the Bible that so many believe in up to this day.

    Here are a few more Bible prophecies re Israel and fulfillment, since 1948; some are in partial fulfillment.

    3. Israel will prevail over its enemies

    Bible passage: Isaiah 41: 12-14
    Written: Between 701-681 BC
    Fulfilled: Late 1900s

    “In Isaiah 41: 12-14, the prophet said God would help Israel during times of conflict with enemies (if the people have in God). Isaiah said this during a time when the northern kingdom of Israel had already been conquered by the Assyrian Empire. And the southern kingdom, Judah, was about to be conquered by Babylon. (The Bible explains that Israel and Judah lost their independence because so many of the residents had turned to false religions). But, since 1948 when Israel was re-established, Israel has been attacked by much larger countries. And IUstael has prevailed in each of those attacks. This prophecy has found partian fulfillment.”

    Here is Isaiah 41: 12-14

    “Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob, O little Israel, for I Myself will help you,” declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”

    4. Trees agan would grow in Israel

    Bible passage: Isaiah 41: 18-20
    Written: Between 701-681 BC
    Fulfilled: Late 1900s

    “In Isaiah 41: 18-20, the prophet ‘s talk of a future restoration of Israel coincides with an occurrence in modern Israel – the construction of a vast irrigation system to improve framing. The lack of available water, including rain, is one reason why Israel had been a desolate, unproductive during much of the past 2000 years. But, during the 1900s when many Jews returned to their ancient homeland, they built a network of irrigation tems. And during the past century, more than 200 million trees have been planted in Israel.”

    Here is Isaiah 41: 18-20

    “I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, so that people may SEE and KNOW, may consider and UNDERSTAND, that the HAND of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has CREATED IT.”

    “In other words, the book of the prophets and their writings were included in the Bible, because they are relevant for us today, because their messages are vital for us.”

    “torah prophecies detail some rather alarming and chilling events in the pre-Messianic era. Included in the prophecies of this era are challenges facing the family and soceity such as: disrespect, intergenerational conflicts, and the very painful disintegration of many families, in addition to the challenges to society in dealing with immorality, crime, and perversions in the justice system. Of course, this era has also seen many nations challenging the rights of Jews to Israel. this century has experienced waves of TERRORISM, as well as the death of nearly 200 million people because of wars and murders ordered by just Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. So the Almighty provided the world with prophecies to alert us to the challenges that lie ahead, and to convince conscientious people to take proper precautions to protect those who are dear to them.”

    “And now, for the outstanding finale to the chapter: who ever heard of a people who returned to their ancestral homeland, after an ABSENCE of 1800 years? Moreover, who EVER HEARD of a people maintaining their national identity during the many years of their being separated from their land? In fact, who ever heard of a people who for 1800 years were always making plans to return? Eventually, most immigrants assimilate into the host country, and adopt its culture quickly. After three generatins at most, the family’s country of origin amounts to nothing more than insignificant genealogical information. Third -generation children of immigrants do not usually dream of returing to a grandparent’s country of origin in order to take up permanent residency there. …this is one of the aspects of assimilation. Certainly, after an absence of 1800 yars, no person would ever dream of returing to live in the ancestral homeland. After an absence of 1800 years, it is not “normal’ for a people to still ream of rerning to their ancestral home. After an absence of 1800 years, for the same people to actually return to their country of origin – this is definitely baffling.”

    “Only the Ultimate Controller of weather and history, Almighty God could have propesied ALL these super-ordinary conditions with their respective sub-miracles. Only the Creator of history could have Created the following miracles:

    * A very productive land

    *An 1800-year exile

    * The prolonged drought and desolation

    * The suddeen greening of the Lands, better than EVER

    *The ultimate return of Jews to their homeland (after an absence of 1800 years.

    “In the face of such overwhelming EVIDENCE, only an intellectually dishonest person could STUBBORNLY persist in maintaining that this series of events occurred by hapenstance. Truly, these stupendous events are incontrovertible PROOF of Almighty God’s active existence, as the Bible itself proclaims.” (PROPHECIES For The Era of Muslim Terror, A Torah Perspective on World Events, pp. 38-40 Emphasis added)

    Absolutely!!! Yes, Lord God Almighty, you control ‘nature’ for it IS Your Creation, to fulfill ALL of Your Decrees, throughout history, one way or the other, according Your Eternal Sovereignty!!!
