PROPHETIC CONVERGENCE – PART XXVI

We’ve looked at where we’ve come from. It’s time to shift gears and ponder what lies ahead. We’ll be looking not only at ‘What’ will happen – but also trying to discern the ‘Why’! Behind it all we may find some hint of the character of God.  WHERE WE’RE HEADED “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”   And Jesus answered and said to them: ‘Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.   All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, ... [More]

Jewish Migration from Europe to Israel Sets an All-Time High - A record number of Jews made Aliyah to Israel from Western Europe in 2015 due to a rise in anti-Semitic attacks, according to the Jewish Agency for Israel. “That a record number of European Jews feel that Europe is no longer their home should alarm European leaders and serve as a wake-up call for all who are concerned about the future of Europe.” Said Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky.[i]  An Orthodox Jew Discovers Yeshua in Israel –Neriyah Arabov grew up in the former Soviet Union, but at 17 his family fled the communist system and immigrated to Israel.

PROPHETIC CONVERGENCE – PART XXV

Once moving slowly, ponderously, the wheels of prophecy are now taking on a momentum of their own. Event crowds upon event – each feeding the next - at a speed that defies comprehension. We can see it in every sphere; economic, geo-political, technological and religious. An increasingly rebellious mankind has sown the wind and without repentance must reap the whirlwind.  WHERE WE’VE BEEN - 5 “Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, Because they have transgressed My covenant And rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, ‘My God, we know You!’ Israel has rejected the good; The enemy will pursue him….They sow the wind, And reap the whirlwind.” (Hosea 8:1-3, 7)) ACCELERATION ! The pace of prophetic fulfillment is rapidly increasing. Like the blizzard that is blowing up the East Coast as I write this, it is tearing down institutions and nations and cultures. Strangely to some, it is all part of the plan. When explaininig ... [More]

Naghmeh Abedini Posts about Her Personal Journey to Denounce Islam – “Nagmeh, the wife of imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini, kicked off her new year with a three-week fast.” In a Facebook post Monday, she said, “The focus of the fast is to spend more time in the presence of the Lord and to draw closer to the heart of God. Man-made religions are all empty labels that will not give us access to God. Access to God is only possible through Jesus Christ”, she said. Late last year, Naghmeh pulled back her public fight to see her husband freed from prison in Iran. In December she posted on Facebook, “The truth is that I still love my husband more than ever and my advocacy for him has taken a new form of interceding on my knees…”[i] (Jan.7, 2016 CBN News) Plot to Assassinate Netanyahu Foiled – Two Israeli Arabs were indicted on Friday for planning to assassinate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
