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.

Syria, Russia and the Transformed Middle East

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

Syria, Russia and the Transformed Middle East

Syria, Russia and the Transformed Middle East

The Latter Day King of the North and the King of the South in Bible Prophecy

Russia moves into Syria and the Middle East

The unrest and resulting civil war, that engulfed the nation of Syria has now been raging for about five years. To begin with it was unclear what would come out of the Syrian civil war, but there were certain events that seemed probable - many of us may have said, “Wouldn’t it be significant if Russia were to move into Syria”. Five years on, at least some of the results are becoming quite clear. Today Russia is in Syria. While Russia has now said that they will be withdrawing some of their forces from Syria. What this will exactly entail and when remains to be seen, but the fact is that Russia will have a much stronger presence in Syria and in the Middle East going forward. Russia’s move to pull back some of its troops came as a surprise, however it is probably a tactical pull back, the reason for which will become apparent.

The conflict in Syria has been a potentially very significant event for students of Bible prophecy for several reasons. Why is the Syrian civil war significant? Here are four reasons.

1.      The territory of Syria is part of the original territory of the “king of the north” or Greek Seleucid kingdom spoken of in Daniel 11. The Seleucid empire was much larger than Syria, however the area of Syria was the most significant in respect to the kingdom of Judah at the time, as it was directly to the north. The capital of the Seleucid empire was Antioch, which is today located close to the Syrian border in modern day Turkey. 

It was the “king of the north” Antiochus IV (175–163), who erected a statue to Zeus in the Temple at Jerusalem. His persecution of the Jews and desecration of the Temple resulted in the Maccabean uprising commencing in 165BC. The Maccabean resistance resulted in the Jews taking control over Judea from the Seleucids and the creation of an independent Judea.

In the time of the end, there is a "king of the north” and it would seem fitting for the latter-day “king of the north” to have control over the significant areas or territory of the ancient kingdom.

2.     Syria was part of Pan-Arabism, a nationalist notion of cultural and political unity among Arab countries. Hostility to Israel was a common ground they shared. Pan-Arabism loomed large around the time of the 1967 and 1973 wars. Yet the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:13 presents us with a divided Arab world. The Syrian civil war has brought these divisions to the forefront and solidified them.

3.     From the moment of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, Syria was a significant threat to Israel’s very existence. This was especially true at the time of the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur war of 1973. At that time, Syria was much more heavily armed than Israel was. Today Syria’s power is all but vanished and is fighting for very survival. The nation of Syria encompasses the region of the Euphrates along with Iraq. These nations, who attempted to lead the Arab world and rise to great power, have seen their power dry up, just like the Ottoman Empire before them.

4.     With the direct intervention of Russia and their presence in Syria, as well as the downing of the Russian jet by the Turks, Turkey has suddenly become a much more significant part of the picture. Not only was the territory of Turkey part of the ancient Seleucid “king of the north” empire, it’s capital Istanbul or Constantinople, was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire. Turkey is also one of the remnants of the Ottoman Empire and therefore we can expect it to lose power - to be “dried up”.

ISIS Oil Trucks Bombed by Putin sets Russia on path of conflict with TurkeyThe Syrian civil war and disintegration has brought Russia back into the Middle-East as a major player. This is a major step forward for Russia to assume the role of the “king of the north” in the fullest sense in the latter days. Turkey’s incidents with Russia have been serious and Russia continues to provoke Turkey and to escalate the situation.

Russia is hitting Turkey where it hurts, bombing the Turkmen rebel group in Syria, continuing to violate Turkish airspace and supporting the Kurds with whom Turkey is fighting. Just today Ynet news reported that Russia claims that, "Turkish troops in Syria for operation against Kurds”. We can expect the Turkish / Russian confrontation to continue - both parties have opposed interests and goals in the region - and of course as a fulfilling Bible prophecy. It is quite likely that Russia will attempt to destabilize Turkey completely and gain control of Constantinople and the Bosphorus.

Today the Middle East is very divided and the days of “Pan-Arabism” are a thing of the past. A north / south split in the Arab world has developed. To the north there is the Russian influenced Syria, Iranian Shite axis. To the south there is Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States with their sphere of “Sunni" influence. On January 5th, it was reported on the Ha’aretz Israeli news website that “Saudi Arabia Defies West by Cutting Ties With Iran”. The article opens by stating, “The new rift between Iran and Saudi Arabia is liable to delay, if not completely undermine, diplomatic efforts to end the wars in Syria and Yemen.”  Just this week the Saudis and the Arab League have listed Hezbollah as a terrorist group. Hezbollah is fighting alongside Assad in Syria, but they were originally dedicated to waging war against Israel and are identified as the largest threat to Israel.

Yet now Saudi Arabia says it will punish anyone linked to Hezbollah. The left wing Israeli news website Ha’aretz, said that the "Hezbollah Issue Is Splitting the Arabs”, and "Paradoxically, the definition of Hezbollah as a terror group has turned into a dividing line between Arab countries, which must now decide whether to embrace Saudi hegemony.” Arab countries must now decide whether to support the Saudi led side or the Iranian/Russian axis. This is creating a split exactly as expected by students of Bible Prophecy and as outlined in Ezekiel 38, with Russia and Persia or Iran on one side and Sheba and Dedan - or Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states on the other.

Ezekiel 38 depicts an invader from the “uttermost parts of the north” (v15 ASV), this is Rosh (v2 ASV) an ancient name for Russia. He comes down on the mountains of Israel, that have always been waste, the prophet says but have been “gathered out of the nations”. This is the time we live in - the latter days - when Israel has been regathered.

Not part of this invasion are Sheba and Dedan and the Merchants of Tarshish. While not invading they are apparently not stopping the invasion from taking place. Verse 13:

"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?”

This is a companion prophecy to Daniel 11, which also speaks of the “time of the end”. Daniel 11:40,41 says:

" And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.”

A better reading of the Hebrew text here could be: “At the time of the end shall the king of the south contend with the king of the north.” The verb here “push” or “content” is in the Hitpael form, this is a reflexive verb and it only appears this way in scripture in this verse. The verb is used elsewhere in a different form, for example the ox in Leviticus, which was “wont to push”. Here in Daniel 11, the picture is more like two animals engaged in a struggle pushing back and forth with their horns. This is a characteristic of the time of the end. There would be a “king of the north” power and a “king of the south” power, contending with each other, until the “king of the north” comes against the “king of the south” like a whirlwind.

So the pull back of Russia is only temporary. Russia will overflow and pass over many countries and enter the glorious land of Israel. But she will come to her end and none will help. As we consider the events in Syria, we see things steadliy moving in that predetermined direction, that heralds the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth.
