God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

 Truth Seeker - True Bible Teaching

The Bible is our only true source for the Truth!

 

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven (1 Peter 1:12)

 

True faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

Clip from “T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD

Is there something wrong when a supposedly 70 million-year-old tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur is found with soft tissue—including blood vessels and even whole cells? This is what a U.S. researcher reported in late March.  Biologist Mary Schweitzer discovered this soft tissue when it was necessary to break a T. rex’s huge thigh bone.

Schweitzer said that the vessels were flexible and some could even be squeezed. After extensive testing, there was confirmation that this T. rex bone even had hemoglobin (red blood cells).

This discovery is unexplained by evolutionary thinking, which suggests that millions and millions of years have passed since this “King of Dinos” met its demise. Schweitzer is puzzled and cannot understand why this bone was not mineralized. “It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually, because it flies in the face of everything we understand about how tissues and cells degrade,” she said on MSNBC.

“It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually….”

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

In 1995, Joe Taylor, a professional dinosaur excavator and a biblical creationist, was curious about the hip girdle of another T. rex that was found in 1916. It was found in the same Hell Creek Formation where Schweitzer’s T. rex bone was found. Taylor was amazed that this 65 million-year-old specimen still had the appearance of skin on the sacral vertebrae. He sent a sample to Azusa Pacific College in California and had it scanned with an electron microscope by Professor Mark Armitage, who found that the bone had collagen filaments intact inside the bone. The presence of collagen suggests that this supposedly 65 million year old fossil was not completely fossilized. Armitage states, “It can’t be but a few thousand years old.”

So the Theory of Evolution is just that ‘A Theory’ that has never been proved and evidence like this says it can’t be and isn’t true.

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

The Middle East ConflictA Nation Always in the News

It seems that Israel is never out of the news for long. Despite its small size and insignificance compared to the G8 nations, the spotlight of the world's attention falls frequently on this troubled country.

The World could give a few reasons why this might be;

  • A (generally) pro-western state surrounded by (generally) anti-western neighbours.
  • A (nominally) Judaistic nation surrounded by (nominally) Islamic Nations.
  • The powerful Jewish lobby in the United States and elsewhere, mustering support.
  • A capital city (Jerusalem), holy to three different (and often conflicting) religions; Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
  • One piece of land (Canaan), occupied by two nations, Israel and PalestineIsrael Map

However, the Bible Old Testament (a book holy to Islam, Judaism and Christianity) has a simpler explanation:

Isaiah 43:10 “You are my witnesses,” says the LORD, “With my servant whom I have chosen; that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he. Before me there was no God formed, neither will there be after me."

Isaiah 44:8 Don’t fear, neither be afraid. Haven’t I declared it to you long ago, and shown it? You are my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? Indeed, there is not. I don’t know any other Rock.”

The Bible says that Israel are God's witnesses. Through them, we can see God at work, bringing about His plan and purpose for the Earth.

Bible Prophecy Provides Convincing Proof that God Exists:

World Events and Bible Prophecy

As we hope to show, Bible prophecy is reliable and could only have come from God. Prophecies concerning Babylon, Egypt and particularly Israel are covered, as is Nebuchadnezzar's dream in Daniel Chapter 2.  World History has been prophecied in the Bible thousands of years before it has come to pass, learn more about this remarkable proof of the one True God of the Bible and your own future.

BIBLE PROPHECY - CONVINCING PROOF THAT GOD EXISTS

The Bible is a most remarkable book. Its account of the origin of evil; its unparalleled record of God's dealings with the nation of Israel; its searching message through their prophets; its "good news" proclaimed by Jesus Christ and his apostles; above all, its unerring analysis of the weaknesses of human nature and its contrasting portrayal of the holiness, the truth and the mercy of God, made especially plain in the person of His Son - all these are outstanding features found in no other book in the world. They prompted Henry Rogers over l00 years ago to declare: "The Bible is not such a book as man would have written if he could, nor could have written if he would."( In The Superhuman Origin of the Bible Deduced from Itself.) In other words, God is needed to explain its existence.

In this short work we shall consider one of the Bible's unique features: its prophecy. Now strictly prophecy is not just foretelling the future. A prophet was one who "spoke for" another, a spokesman; and prophecy was the message the prophet spoke on behalf of God. But since Bible prophecy contains quite a lot of "prediction", or foretelling future events, for our purpose here we shall take the term in that sense.

Who has the Power of Prophecy?

But first we must settle an important question: Does the Bible claim that the power of prophecy belongs only to God and is a proof of His authority?

To this there is a decisive answer in the prophecy of Isaiah. In the 41st chapter God challenges the idols and the idol worshippers of the day to prove that they possess divine powers. This is how He does it:

"Produce your cause, saith the Lord; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob, Let them (the idols) bring them, (the reasons) forth, and declare unto us what shall happen: declare ye the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; and shew us things to come ..." (vv.21-22,R.V.).

The basis of this challenge is clear: the pagan worshippers claim that their idols are gods. Very well; let them produce the proofs. And the proofs demanded by God Himself are that the idols shall announce future events, and also declare "the former things", that is, explain how creation took place in the beginning. The point is made crystal clear in the next verse:

"Declare the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods ..." (v.23).

Here God Himself is asserting that to be able to foretell the future would be a proof of Divine power. More than once in this part of Isaiah's prophecy, God declares that He is the only one who has this power, for only He is God; there is no other:

"Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God , and there is none like me ..." (46:9)

The God of Israel is here declaring that there is no other worthy object of worship but Himself; and goes on to assert the signs of His power in these terms:

". . . declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure" (46:10).

Come to think of it, whoever would dare to say, "My counsel shall stand . . ." -except God? What man is there in the whole world who could say any such thing? To carry it out needs Someone who not only knows future events before they happen, but has the power to see that they take place as He has decreed. In other words, to utter prophecy which will inevitably come true, you need God. No other cause can explain it.

The New Testament makes the same claim. When Jesus was about to leave his disciples, he promised them the help of the Holy Spirit in their task of preaching the Gospel in the world. One of the effects of this gift was to be: "He shall declare unto you the things that are to come" (John 16:13); in other words, the disciples were to be given a knowledge of future events. It is certainly implied that without the special gift they could not have done this. Their ability to declare the future was to be an evidence of the Divine power they had been granted.

Again, in the last book of the Bible, chapter 1, verse 1, it is declared that God gave to Jesus Christ a revelation, "to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly come to pass . . ." (Revelation 1:1) . The knowledge of the future came from God through Jesus; without that revelation, His servants could have known nothing of it.

The conclusion is clear: the Bible says quite definitely that the power to foretell the future belongs to God alone.

Does the Bible foretell the Future?

India the Eastern Tarshish unites with Israel

India and Israel develop economical, agricultural and military ties - fulfilling the words of the prophets.

In the week of 10th of July we witnessed a very significant event take place in Israel. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, visited Israel for three days. The reason this visit is significant is found both in Bible history and prophecy. India answers to the Easter Tarshish and as such will have both economic and military ties with Israel at the time of the end.

This week saw a very significant event take place in Israel. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, visited Israel for three days. Prime Minister Netanyahu brought his entire cabinet, heads of all the military and police, and religious leaders to meet Prime Minister Modi at the airport.

Prime Minister Netanyahu brought his entire cabine and religious leaders to meet Prime Minister Modi at the airport.

The reason this visit is significant is found both in Bible history and prophecy.

Tarshish in Bible Prophecy & History

As has been discussed many times in the Bible in the News, the nation of Tarshish has a significant role to play in the time of the end:

“Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” (Ezekiel 38:13)

Who the nation of Tarshish is has been explored many times. Undoubtedly, Britain fulfills the role of Tarshish, while her former colonies, many of which now form the Commonwealth, are the young lions.

The link between Tarshish and Israel goes back thousands of years. King Solomon cooperated with Hiram King of Tyre to obtain materials for the building of the temple and the enriching of his kingdom through the services of the ships of Tarshish:

“And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was not any thing accounted of in the days of Solomon. For the king’s ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks. And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.” (2 Chronicles 9:20–22)

Tarshish has been identified both historically and archeologically with Britain based on the ancient trade in tin, lead and silver as catalogued in Ezekiel 27.

“Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs.” (Ezekiel 27:12)

“They use brass money, and iron rings of a certain weight. The provinces remote from the sea produce tin, and those upon the coast iron…” (Julius Caesar, The Gallic Wars, Book 5, Chapter 12).This is testified to by Julius Caesar who in his book on the Gallic Wars related of Britain:

Samuel Bochart in 1651 testified the very name of Britain is derived from this:

“Britain is the name given to this island by the Phoenicians, when they trafficked hither for tin, calling it Baratanac; the land of tin, contracted afterwards to Bratanac, and then again softened into Britania”(Samuel Bochart, Phaleg, 1651).

This is the Tarshish that was to the West of Israel, operating in the Mediterranean and beyond. This is the direction Jonah fled aboard a ship of Tarshish trying to escape his commission to preach to Nineveh.

Anti-Catholic King-Makers Gain Power in Britain

Britains Minority Government can only hold power by uniting with the Anti-Catholic DUP

As Britain struggles to pull together a coalition government the angels have been at work reorganizing the political landscape of the country, bringing BREXITEERs to power, and forcing the government to unite with the Anti-Catholic DUP, originally formed by Ian Paisley. 

The results of the British general election shocked many across the UK and the world when British Prime Minister Teresa May lost her majority in the British Parliament two weeks before Britain is due to start negotiating BREXIT – Britain’s Exit from Europe.

But are the results of this bringing Britain even more into line with Bible Prophecy.  Let us take a look...

Britain’s Role as dictated by the Bible

The result caused many to ponder what is going on. Clearly, Bible prophecy spoke about the need for Britain to Exit the European Union based on the role it must play as the Merchant of Tarshish with its Young Lions who stands in opposition to the Russo-European confederacy that will eventually sweep into the land:

“Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” (Ezekiel 38:13)

It is not part of the European Beast of Revelation 17 that will make war with the lamb as we read in Rev 17:

“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

Rather, it is part of a group of nations who will submit to the Lord Jesus Christ at the moment of crisis:

“The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: All nations shall serve him.” (Psalm 72:10–11)

Britain will be involved in assisting the Jews to return to the land:

“Surely the isles shall wait for me, And the ships of Tarshish first, To bring thy sons from far, Their silver and their gold with them, Unto the name of the LORD thy God, And to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, And their kings shall minister unto thee: For in my wrath I smote thee, But in my favour have I had mercy on thee.” (Isaiah 60:9–10)

What is going on?

So one has to wonder, what on earth is going on in the political world when the Prime Minister who is supposed to lead Britain out of the European Union loses her majority? This is when we need to step back and remember one clear fact:

“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.” (Daniel 4:17)

The angels are at work behind the scenes to give the reigns of world government into the hands of those who will bring about the purpose of God. In the late 1940’s, if True Bible Students had been voters in the national British election, (which we do not do because we believe in the principle of Dan 4:17), undoubtedly they would have voted for Winston Churchill, the politician most friendly to Israel. Yet Mr. Churchill lost the election before the war was even over. Into power came Clement Attlee and Earnest Bevin, a self-hating Jew, determined to demonstrate his Britishness over his Jewishness. Their policies, and restrictions on immigration post-holocaust, caused revolt in Palestine amongst the Jewish population, ending up with Britain relinquishing its mandate and the formation of the State of Israel. The very opposite of what we would have voted for caused the very thing that was in God’s plan – a sovereign state of Israel, answering to the “My of people Israel” described by God in Ezekiel 38.

Why did May lose the election?

It is too early to tell exactly what the angels are doing, but we do know the overall outcome. It was interesting to hear Nigel Farage’s comments on May’s blunder during an interview with a panel from the USA’s Fox news. Here are some excerpts.

Nigel Farage - "Mrs. May made a mess of it"

Nigel Farage - "Mrs. May made a mess of it"

“Well, I think Mrs May makes a mess of it! I mean, she had a parliamentary majority; we triggered Article 50; the negotiations with the European Union are due to start in 11 days time; and the next election was not due until 2020. She forced this fresh election upon the country, and she’s failed, and while she has just about crept back, with the support of some Northern Ireland Unionists, I think her credibility is completely and fatally damaged, not just here but in the eyes of the European Union too….

I have to say, there were no obstacles in our course at all. Whilst her majority wasn’t big, it was big enough. She has risked everything just to give herself an increased majority and it really has come undone….

If the election had gone about 10 seats the other way, we’d be facing the prospect of Prime Minister Corban.  He’s basically a Marxist; he’s cozied up over the years to Hamas, who he called his friends, Hez bollah, the IRA and he absolutely loathes the United States of America. Him becoming Prime Minister would have been a disaster for relations between our two countries, in terms of security, defense, and trade. So thank goodness it didn’t happen, but boy he got close….

Mrs. May will be at the palace to see the Queen, in 15 minutes time, as per our constitutional requirements. To form a government, to form a coalition government  she has to go there as the sitting Prime Minister. So constitutionally, she was not going to resign this morning. But I think she will not be there for very long at all. Who will it be? My guess is the two front runners will be Boris Johnson or David Davis, both of whom were on the Brexit side. You see the mystery… the mystery was Mrs. May voted “Remain”, Mrs. May was for staying in the European Union, and yet became leader of a Brexit Party. She went into this election lacking sincerity because she did not believe the words she was speaking and the Tory party now must, must, must get a Brexiteer to lead it!”

KING OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH IN BIBLE PROPHECY

Today in June 2017 we are witnessing events that are leading to a new International Geopolitical Alignment of Nations into a Northern and Southern Alliance.

King of the North and South, latter day Geopolitical Alignment of Nations

For True Bible Students what we are seeing is long expected Bible prophecy unfolding before our very eyes, events that gave long been expected.

After WWII the European nations were aligned in an East-West International Geopolitical alignment or configuration with the Berlin wall down the middle.  West Germany, France, Britain, Canada and the United States held the power in the west with the eastern European countries and Russia obviously holding power in the East.

As far as the Middle East was concerned the Arab nations all considered Israel as a hostile enemy.  And Saudi Arabia may have been hostile to Russia and friendly with America but it resisted any idea of peace with Israel.  Although there were changes here and there this persistent alliance made many to reconsider many of the prophecies and wonder if many had got it wrong.  Even still today NATO is a fully functioning historical East-West alliance, but there are cracks showing and nations are now considering their long held positions with Europe now looking at establishing their own EU Army.

A True Bible Student by the name of Grahame Pearce wrote these words in 1977 under the heading “Two Mountains of Brass”:

“According to the last part of Daniel, chapter 11, there will exist when Christ returns two hostile powers north and south of the land, repeating the kind of situation outlined in such detail in the early part of the chapter. The idea of a north and a south power is not limited to Daniel, ch. 11; it is even more clearly expressed in Zechariah, chapter 6. In this chapter the four chariots go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth to walk to and fro through the earth; the man whose name is the BRANCH becomes king and priest; the temple is built. Clearly, it is the time of setting up the kingdom. And the phrase of importance is that the four chariots go forth from between two mountains of brass. This conveys the idea of two 'mountain' powers north and south of Jerusalem. In Ezekiel, chapter 38, too, there is a power that challenges the northern invader: "Art thou come to take a spoil?" So we should be looking today for those movements that will provide "two mountain" powers antagonistic to each other established north and south of the Land of Israel.”

Graham Pearce was nothing short of excited about the developments with the Southern power but as far as peace with Israel, it still seemed along way off, in fact, Graham believed that it was possible that the temporary peace of Ezekiel 38 may develop after the return of Jesus Christ.  Listen to the following quote from the same book:

“The excitement of seeing many forward moves relative to the 'King of the South' is somewhat dampened when we turn to Israel. There is little insight that points to that strange peace in the land before the great confederacy comes from the north to take a spoil. Israel is to "dwell safely all of them;" they are described as "them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates;" "in that day when My people dwell safely, shalt thou not know it?"

As proposed in the booklet Russia, The Vatican and the Invasion of Israel this remarkable state of things probably follows on after the resurrection and the hidden unrecognized power of Christ as a major influence in this region. Nevertheless, we do well to look for signs that point in the direction of peace in this area; and they are not altogether absent.”

Christ is Coming SOON, Are YOU Ready?

Christ is Coming SOON! ARE YOU READY?

Are you ready for Christ’s Return?

Do you know about Christ’s Return and what this will mean to you?

Firstly the Bible speaks on Christ’s Return in two completely different ways eg:

Matthew 24:27-31

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Matthew 24:30

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Matthew 24:37-39

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:40-42

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Luke 12:39-40

39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Luke 21:27-28

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

1Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-5

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

2 Peter 3:10

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

Okay so what do we learn from all these passages:

1.     When Christ comes the dead will rise first ie. Those who have died in belief and faith of Christ’s coming will be resurrected from the grave.

2.     The believers that are still alive at Christ’s coming will be gathered together to be with Christ and along with those who have been resurrected.

3.     At this point only those who were ready and waiting for Christ’s to come will see him as to all others his return will be like a thief and they will not realise that he has come.

4.     We know that one of the first things that Christ will do when he returns is judgement of all that we have done both good and bad.  And Peter tells us that this judgement must first begin at the household of God ie. With the Believers. 

1 Peter 4:16-18

16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

So Judgement will commence with the believers who will be taken away from this world for a time while this process takes place.  Where will they go?

Well Isaiah says that they will enter a place of privacy

Isaiah 26:19-21

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. 

The world we live in is a world of contrasts.

NATO verses RussiaCracks appearing in NATO

The state of the nations before the Kingdom of God

Relationships are at an all time low between Russia and NATO. The members of NATO themselves do not seem to be overly convinced by their union. Cracks are appearing in the NATO alliance as we would expect from Bible prophecy.

The State of the Nations before Christ return

In the Bible in the news we often discuss the wonder of Bible prophecies which relate to the state of the nations before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth. We consider these prophecies and look for evidence of the hand of God in world affairs.

We turn to prophecies such as Daniel 2, Daniel 11, Zechariah 12-14., Ezekiel 38, Joel 3 and Revelation 16. We see how these prophecies all give us different aspects of the same story.    They depict a unification of the Kingdoms of Men, an alliance of Russian, European, North African and Far Eastern countries - all of whom will come down upon the “mountains of Israel” after the Jews have been regathered to their land.

Something needs to change

We look up from our Bibles and glance at the political landscape around us. Although we do see many encouraging things coming to pass as the prophecies have predicted there is currently one major thing which needs to change.

Currently, we have Russia and the territories of Europe very much in a stand off against each other in the situation in Eastern Europe. They are not on the same side.

This situation has been brought about by the Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine. Back in 2014, in a bid to ensure that the Ukraine looked East and not West, Russia made several military incursions into the Ukraine after it famously annexed Crimea. This aggression has been resisted by the Ukraine and its European supporters.

At the moment, the situation is in a stalemate. Ukraine is part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Members of this organisation include America, the UK, Turkey and most European countries such as Germany and France. Russia is not a member. They have a pact to defend each other. Should one country be attacked all other NATO countries would defend that one invaded country. NATO troops have been sent to the Eastern Europe to deter a full blown Russian takeover. This has been called “Operation Reassurance”.

On the 24th of April, Sputnik ran an article entitled “Russia-NATO Ties at 'Lowest' Point Since End of Cold War - Russian General Staff.”

On the 18th of May, the Mail ran an article entitled “Russia strengthens its Baltic forces with additional warships and fighter jets in bid to out-gun NATO.”

A Remarkable speech by the US Vice President Mike Pence

The following remarkable speech by Vice President Pence was given at an Israel Independence Day Commemoration Event in the White House.

The introductory remarks by Ambassador David Friedman highlighted the fact that this was the first time the White House had celebrated Israel’s Day of Independence.

Vice President Mike Pence remarkable speech on IsraelTHE VICE PRESIDENT:  Well, thank you, Mr. Ambassador.  Thank you all for being here.  And on behalf of the First Family, welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  

I bring greetings from the President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump.  (Applause.)  And on behalf of President Trump, just a few minutes ago, I had the distinct honor to wish a happy Independence Day to Prime Minister Netanyahu over the phone as we celebrate the 69th anniversary of the independence of America’s most cherished ally, the Jewish state of Israel.  (Applause.)  

I want to thank all the distinguished guests who are here and members of Congress who made time to come to the White House this afternoon, and people representing a broad spectrum of Americans who all cherish the relationship that the American people have enjoyed throughout these 69 years with the people of Israel.

It’s humbling to be here with you on this remarkable and even a hallowed day.  From Secretary Steve Mnuchin to Ambassador David Friedman -- (applause) -- to Senator Orrin Hatch, who has been a great, great champion for Israel all these many years in the United States Senate.  (Applause.)

Distinguished members of Congress, including Congressman Peter King, who’s with us today.  (Applause.)  Republicans and Democrats who are gathered here, honored guests, my fellow friends of Israel, thank you, on behalf of the President of the United States.  Just thank you for being here today at the White House to celebrate this day, the anniversary of a moment that will be remembered for eternity.

You’re all here, all of you, regardless of your home, your creed, because on this day, the fifth day in the month of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar in 1948, nothing short of a miracle occurred.  On that day, in the ancient and eternal homeland of the Jewish people, the state of Israel was reborn.  (Applause.)  

On that day, the Jewish people’s 2000-year exile, the longest exile of any people anywhere, ended.  And on that day, a prophecy literally came to pass.  And I believe in my heart that God himself fulfilled his promise to his people.  The Lord God tells us in the Old Book, “Behold, I will cause breath to enter into and ye shall live.”  And Israel lives today.  (Applause.)

Wake up the Mighty Men of War!

A resurgent Russia is seen across the world, heralding the return of Christ and the coming of the Kingdom of God.

We know from the Bible that a belligerent Russia will invade the Middle East at “the time of the end”. Russia is seen to be preparing for this all over the world. New submarines are being built.  Military operations are seemingly continuously on full ahead GO! Allies are being brought into the fold such as Libya, Syria, Iran, South Ossetia. The Western nations are increasingly worried and are warning their military establishments and defence organizations to "wake up" - just as the Bible predicted.

In scanning through recent news, one is impressed by the number of articles speaking of a resurgent Russia.

We know from the Bible that a belligerent Russia will invade the Middle East at “the time of the end”. It is a Russia that has been preparing:

“Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.” (Ezekiel 38:7)

The word “prepared” carries the idea of being formed to the point of becoming “firm”, or firmly established, to be securely determined, to furnish, to arrange or order, to be ready for action. This is the way it is used in Joshua 8:4 when Joshua commanded the men of Israel to “all be ready” for the attack on Jericho.

Many Ships

When taking a broad view of the arrangements that need to be made, according to the scriptural narrative, we see there are several elements that are required. One of these is a naval presence in the Mediterranean, for the Prophet Daniel states that he shall come with “many ships” (Dan 11:40). The news has been full of reports of a resurgent Russian naval presence causing alarm and provoking the Western dominance in the region.

The National Interest Magazine, under the headline, “Russia's Most Powerful Nuclear Attack Submarine Ever Is Almost Ready for Sea” reported the following:

Russian Subs

Russia is about to add a new class of submarine to its fleet - a multipurpose sub.

“Russia is set to launch its second Yasen-class nuclear-powered attack submarine on March 30, called Kazan…. Once the vessel is operational, she will be the most formidable enemy submarine that the U.S. Navy has ever faced. “It’s probably the most capable nuclear powered submarine out there fielded by a potential adversary,” Center for Naval Analyses Russian military affairs specialist Michael Kofman told The National Interest.” “The Severodvinsk is capable of antisubmarine, antiship, and land-attack missions.”

Russia’s resurgent navy has been flexing its muscles all over the world. Causing alarm in America, CNN reported,

“There's a Russian spy ship off the coast of Connecticut. Crammed with eavesdropping equipment, the Viktor Leonov has loitered in these waters before, but its current visit is the latest in a string of provocations….”

The report went on to state:

“In recent years, Russia's military has become more assertive and more capable, directed by the Kremlin to probe for weaknesses, sow uncertainty and exploit opportunities.”

In the past decade, Russia has reportedly committed $700 billion to updating its armed forces in this decade, making them more mobile.

Russia is using this modernized force to test US commitment to safeguarding international security and looking for signs of self-doubt, chinks in its armour.

The alarms have been sounding in the USA but also in the Mediterranean. This week the British newspaper, Daily Expressed, ran an article with the headline “Russia floods Gibraltar waters with DEADLY submarines as military fears sinister plot” where it was stated:

Vladimir Putin is testing British military patience by sending the deadly subs past the oversees territory on their way into the Mediterranean.

The new cold war developing between Russia and their Western enemies is becoming increasingly focused on the Med, which Vladimir Putin has been utilizing due to the war in Syria.

UK military sources also confirmed the presence of Russian submarines off the Gibraltar coast.

They said: “In recent years we have seen an increase in Russian submarine activity in the North Atlantic and in the Mediterranean.

Norways Lt Jakobsen

“We can also confirm that there has been an increase in its capabilities with better-equipped submarines and greater stealth capacity."

Norway has also been stating its fears of the growth and activity of the Russian Navy in its own waters. The Guardian ran an article entitled, “Troubled waters: Norway keeps watch on Russia's Arctic maneuvers” where it stated:

The Russian posture in the high north has changed. Moscow has developed a fleet of increasingly sophisticated submarines and aircraft, which are being tested in the north Atlantic alongside new high-precision long-range missiles. The fear is that Nato could lose the ability to deny Russia naval access to the north Atlantic, and Russia could block or disrupt US reinforcement to Europe.

Please don't blow us to smithereens by Lizzie Marvelly  Published: Saturday April 29, 2017

"Some mornings I wake up, read the news, and experience an intense urge to bolt the doors, board up the windows, go back to bed and pull the covers up over my head.

From left: Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, Kim Jong Un. Photos / AP

At this stage, who knows what comes next?

If the world were a car, I'd wonder whether the driver was asleep at the wheel, foot jammed firmly on the accelerator, with a gleeful toddler sitting on their lap careering the thing wildly down a potholed road crying, "broom, broom!"

We are living in a dystopian sci-fi soap opera with a cast of characters as preposterous as if they'd been conjured up during an acid trip.

You can just imagine the descriptions on the casting call:

"Donald Trump, a creepy American real estate tycoon with bad hair and a penchant for pomposity who has inexplicably risen to the rank of President of the United States."

"Kim Jong-Un, the 'supreme leader' of North Korea. A paranoid autocrat with chronic little man syndrome, an obsession with nukes and fratricidal tendencies."

"Vladimir Putin, a KGB agent who has succeeded in his mission to secretly infiltrate and overthrow the Russian Government. Likes riding horses and perfecting his scary face in the mirror."

The most recent character to join our absurdist production?

"Marine Le Pen, an Islamophobic political heiress who expelled her own father to consolidate her power. Stands a frighteningly good chance of becoming the President of France."

Outside of the main cast, there's a roster of interesting recurring guests, like Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi; all contributing to a shitshow of epic proportions.

Yes, this is the depth I have sunk to. Joking about our fractured geopolitical landscape in an attempt to ward off the gnawing rush of fear that threatens to consume me.

I've only had 27 years on this planet, but I've never been so concerned for the precarious state of peace in my life.

I'd quite like a few more years here yet, please, if our world leaders could possibly hold off on blowing us all to smithereens."

Well who can blame this writer for feeling this way as we read our world news.

YET FOR BIBLE STUDENTS all we see in our world news today is exactly what we are told about in the Bible.  So for believers there is NO FEAR of what we see, RATHER WE REJOICE knowing that God is in control and that HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE is being worked out with HIS WORLD.

Even with strong authoritarian leaders increasing their sphere of influence in the world we have no fear as GOD HAS PROMISED THAT NO ONE SHALL DESTROY HIS EARTH. 

What is more one authoritarian leader in particular Vladimir Putin of Russia has all the signs of being the great ‘Autocratic’ leader of the Northern Confederacy that Bible Prophecy says will invade the Middle East and trigger the world wide war known in Bible Prophecy as Armageddon.

SO YES Events in our world today are following Bible Prophecy concerning our times, so to Bible Students this is nothing but exciting as we see world events unfold exactly as the Bible foretold over 2500 years ago.  There can be no doubt that we are living at the time of the end, but not the end of the world, just the end of man’s dominion of the world, as Christ will soon return and take control of this world.

World Events to Watch as Bible Prophecy Unfolds before our EYES!

Far from being an era of peace, this so called "civilised" world has become an age of strife and violence. No wonder the attitude of so many people is one of pessimistic resignation.

Furthermore there seems little any one can do.

Now what has Bible prophecy to say about all this?

We see strife today on an unprecedented scale -- strife between political parties; strife between ethnic factions; strife between nations.  

We are beset by problems – climate change bringing extreme weather, hunger, pollution of land and water, and ever present violence; problems of society, revealed by increasing crime rates and over-crowded prisons; by hospitals filled with patients, many of whom are there because of mental stress; and by an alarming number of victims of drug abuse and alcoholism. Looming over all is the frequent threat of economic crisis, with widespread unemployment and material hardship among the "under-developed nations".  There is debt to the world banks (that is, chiefly those of America and Western Europe) to staggering sums running into billions of dollars, with no prospect of ever being able to repay the loans.

The ONLY Source of Hope

God's Word the BibleBut there is one source of HOPE.  It is the Bible. Throughout the Bible human history is seen as ending in a great climax, frequently called "the time of the end" or "the last days", and certain passages tell us quite clearly what those "last days" will be like. One of the clearest and most striking is in Luke 21.  The disciples asked Jesus what would be the sign of his coming (they meant his return to the earth) and of "the end of the world" (Matt. 24:3).   Jesus replies with a description of conditions which his followers would experience after his ascension to heaven.  Then he speaks particularly of the Jewish people:
