Those Left Behind

THIS WILL HAPPEN!The opening video shows the events that will take place in a period of time that is yet future, and is known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation, which increase in the effects from Godly judgments. The total tribulation period is a prophetic seven-year period of time when God will use His acts of wrath and judgment to draw unsaved Jews to saving faith in Christ, and to judge sin. As I watched the video, I did not notice any small children in any of the scenes, which is important, because no small children will be “left behind” when the catching up of the saints occurs. A quick study of the times of the tribulation can be found in Matthew 24:3-31. The scenes of the video are closely in sync with scripture. Other words that are used to describe the “catching up” are harpazo, rapio, and rapture, and relate to the removal of born again believers in Christ from the Earth before the Tribulation and Great Tribulation begin. Read on for more info.

The key to understanding the tribulation is that our world will be inhabited only by Jews and gentiles whom have not been born again, which means they will not have a relationship of saving faith in Christ. The born again process is one where people have their flawed spirits made as pure as the Spirit of Christ; it is accomplished by an act of the Holy Spirit, and without it, no one will see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3; 3:8). “Saint” is a word which identifies those whom have been born again. The “born again” body of believers in Christ are the “bride of Christ,” and comprise the true “church of Christ” (not of denominational identity). There were also Old Testament saints, whom were also born again prior to their deaths (John 3:3).

Preceding the tribulation, the “catching up of the saints” will occur. Only those whom have had their spirits born again will be “caught up.” The following three passages of scripture describe the catching up of the saints (i.e., born again believers in Christ; Church; bride of Christ). Each passage addresses only those whom have been born again (John 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). In each passage, Christ returns to Earth from Heaven, but does not stand on the earth while He catches up born again believers in Christ, as well as deceased believers in Christ. The deceased saints will be resurrected from the grave and given perfect resurrection bodies (their minds/souls have been aware of their Godly relationship and presence, from the time of their death, Luke 16:19-24). The saints whom are alive, will be “caught up,” and will also be given perfect resurrection bodies and souls (the soul is the mind); their born again spirits have been dwelling within the Spirit of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit from the time of their new birth (John 14:16,17,20) (1 Thes 5:23…body, soul, spirit). The destination for Christ and His “caught up” and resurrected saints is the third heaven, where they will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ, for spiritual rewards (2 Corinthians 5:10). This catching up event is only for born again believers in Christ. Just as the saints are the Bride of Christ (1 Cor 1:2, Eph 5:22-33), God is the Husband of Israel (Isa 54:5). When the saints are caught up, and exit their living bodies (2 Cor 5:8), there will be fallen clothes all over the world; the bodies of the caught up saints will have been made into spiritual bodies (1 Cor 15:50-53). There will be nothing of a mortal body to hold up humanly worn garments. From the judgment seat of Christ, the saints will go with Christ to the marriage of the Lamb, where the bride will be arrayed in fine linen, with the linen being the righteous acts of the saints (Rev 19:7-8). While all of the wonderful things that have been happening to the caught up saints of God, the events of the opening video will be taking place on earth until Christ and His bride return to earth for the Battle of Armageddon. Only those whom have been born again will be caught up and taken to the judgment seat of Christ, to be absent from the tribulation; will receive spiritual rewards; will stand next to Christ at the marriage of the Lamb; will return with Christ at His second coming to earth for the Battle of Armageddon. So, whom on earth, can we say will be the ones whom are occupying the earth and being subject to the judgments of God and the persecution of the anti-Christ (the anti-Christ is a tool of God)?

The Left Behind series of books and videos, as written by Dr. Tim LaHaye, achieved its purpose of provoking thought in the minds of more than eighty million purchasers of the Left Behind books. Many more people have viewed the videos.

The November 2008 USA elections resulted in a total Democrat federal leadership that took office in January 2009. Barack Obama (United Church Of Christ), became President. Joe Biden (Roman Catholic), became Vice President. Hillary Clinton (United Methodist Church) was appointed to be Secretary of State; John Kerry (Roman Catholic) replaced Hillary Clinton in 2013. Harry Reid (Mormon) became the Senate Majority Leader. Nancy Pelosi (Roman Catholic) became the Speaker Of the House Of Representatives. Each of these individuals, and every elected member of the Democratic Party, have three similarities of ungodly lifestyle, which is evidence that they have not been born again, and do not have the Spirit of God dwelling within their spirits, prompting them to righteous living. Those three common ungodly lifestyle issues are: 1. They all support slaughtering unborn babies in their mothers’ wombs. 2. They all support the homosexual lifestyle, to include same-sex marriage. 3. They all have not shown that they support Israel. There are Democrats who give lip-service to Israel, but no Democrat went to Jerusalem this year when President Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to the Capital of Israel in Jerusalem. No Jewish Democrats went to that celebration; only Republicans embraced Israel in the good news of moving the U.S. Embassy to the real capital of Israel. The results of the 2008 election show that the USA began being led by people that had no saving relationship with Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Ninety-nine percent of Republicans in Congress say that they are Christians. Eighty-one percent of Democrats in Congress say that they are Christians. Most members of the media are Democrat, as well as those of Hollywood and academia. From the legislation that Democrats support, in favor of abortion on demand, and homosexual issues, it indicates that the Democrats whom claim to be Christians are tied to liberal churches, such as those of the liberal National Council of Churches and World Council of Churches.

When the catching up of the saints occurs, and the tribulation begins, every born again believer in Christ, from all of the world, will no longer be in the world; they will be instantly taken to the Presence of God. Chaos will erupt! Aircraft will suddenly be without born again pilots. Born again truck drives will no longer be in the cabs of their trucks. Many cars will be driverless. Cities, states and nations will be without many peace officers! Many ICE agents will be missing (Democrats will love that!). All born again members of the world’s military forces will be gone. There will be no small children to be found, “anywhere!” Unborn again parents will be going “berserk,” as they search endlessly for their children. News agencies of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, and their likes, will be almost totally staffed, as they begin their interviews of “religious leaders,” (many liberal “reverends,” will remain; they will not have been born again). These unsaved members of the media and clergy will try to convince those, that have also been left behind, that intruding aliens, or global warming, are responsible for the millions of people being missing. The media, academia, Hollywood, and the U.S. Congress, will blast out the message that missing children of Christian parents would have eventually become, “enemies of the world,” so, “no great loss.” World governments will be missing key leaders. The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will be controlled and populated by Democrats; few of them will be caught up. The U.S. Constitution will be abolished. Hillary Clinton may finally be granted her life’s desire…the Democrat populated Congress will appoint her type as President. Supreme Court Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and newly appointed Kavanaugh, will be missing. Schumer and Pelosi types will quickly confer with the Hillary type, and rush through Senate confirmation, replacement justices whom will agree that unborn children have no protection from being slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs. Homosexuality will become as rampant as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. The significance of Israel will be all but a fleeting memory in the minds of the liberal media, Hollywood, academia and the halls of a Democrat populated Supreme Court, Congress and Presidency. A Barack Obama type may very well be appointed to be the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Here are the procedures for the appointment of the Secretary-General Of the U.N. Article 97 of the UN Charter provides that, “The Secretary-General shall be appointed by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.” In other words, Article 97 creates a two-stage process: a recommendation by the Security Council followed by a decision by the General Assembly.” http://www.un.org/apps/news/html/sg-appointment-faq.shtml

The focus of the tribulation is “unbelieving Israel;” it has nothing to do with those whom have been born again. Jeremiah 30:7 (606 B.C.) calls that time, “Jacob’s trouble,” with Jacob being Israel. Daniel “9:20, 24-27,” (538 B.C.) discusses, “the seventieth week of Daniel,” which also relates to “unbelieving Israel.” There are many people of the thought that believers in Christ will go through the tribulation, or through its first part. So, I will ask those whom have an infant, or a small child; what will be the purpose for “those of innocence” to suffer from the judgments of God in the tribulation? I will also ask those of whom have a born again, personal, saving, relationship with Christ; what will be the purpose for you to go through “any part” of the tribulation? I’ll make it easy for you; there is no reason! Read on for more info.

The word “rapture,” is derived from the Greek word, “Harpazo,” and the Latin word, “Rapio.”

The origin of the word “Rapture”:

“Rapture” derives from the first person plural passive of the latin “rapio/rapere” (drag off, snatch, seize, carry off) which is “Rapiemur” in the Latin Vulgate translation. [The english word ‘rape’ also derives from rapio/rapere, so you can see how even rapiemur is not equivalent to ‘rapture’].

This latin word rapiemur is used in the Latin Vulgate translation in I Thess 4:17, which is itself translated from the greek “arpagēsometha”, the second future passive indicative of “harpazo”, which means to catch/sieze/carry away/snatch/obtain by robbery. A good way to picture this word is to imagine a king force ably taking his spoils of war.

To miss the rapture is to be “left behind,” to endure the judgments of God and the persecution of the anti-Christ (who will be a tool of God).

As we have seen, the only ones whom will be caught up from the earth will be born again believers in Christ. There are only two types of people; those whom have been born again, and those whom have not been born again. No one whom has not been born again will be caught up to receive spiritual gifts, join Christ at the marriage of the Lamb, and return to earth with Christ for the Battle of Armageddon. Therefore, the only ones on earth during the tribulation will be those whom had not been born again. Read on for more info.

Anyone whom has been born again, has the Spirit of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwelling within their spirit, as well as the spirit of everyone else whom has been born again (John 14:16,17,20). While the Holy Spirit dwells within each person’s born again spirit, the Holy Spirit is teaching them the things of God, and is prompting them to righteous living (John 14:26; 14:26-27; 15:26-27; 16:7-11). Until we have been given a resurrection soul (which occurs when we are caught up), we will not be perfect in all of our thoughts and actions. All of us make mistakes. But, a person who exhibits an ungodly lifestyle is one whom does not have the Spirit of God dwelling within their spirit.

A description of the great tribulation is provided by the following scripture.

Matthew 24:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

Note. MacArthur Study Bible. 24:21 great tribulation. The words “has not been” and “nor ever shall be”—along with the description that follows—identify this as the yet-future time in which God’s wrath shall be poured out upon the earth.

The condition of the world during the time of Noah was so sinful that God intervened.

Genesis 6:11-13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13 Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.

The effects of the return of Christ to the earth for the Battle of Armageddon will be greater than the effects that accompanied the world-wide flood of Noah’s time. God gives his creation time to repent; when repentance does not occur, God deals swiftly and severely with sin. Such will be the response of God when He pours out His judgments on our sinful world during the Tribulation (2 Peter 3:8, 66 A.D.).

During the time of the tribulation, and the great tribulation, all judgments upon the earth, and on those whom will dwell on the earth, will come from God. Those judgments will be poured out in the forms of Seal Judgments, Trumpet Judgments and Bowl Judgments (Per Ryrie Study Bible notes, as follow:)

The Seven Seal Judgments. (Revelation 6:1-8:6) 1. Antichrist. 2. War. 3. Famine. 4. Death. 5. Martyrs prayers. 6. Great earthquakes. 7. Announcement of Trumpet Judgments. (Christ will break the seals that pour out these judgments. Rev 6:1).

The Seven Trumpet Judgments. (Revelation 8:7-9:21) 1. A third of vegetation burned. 2. A third of the sea judged. 3. A third of fresh water judged. 4. A third of luminaries darkened. 5. Increased demonic activity. 6. A third of mankind killed. 7. Announcement of Bowl Judgments.(Christ will break the seal that pours out these judgments. Rev 8:1).

The Seven Bowl Judgments. (Revelation 15:1 – 16:21) 1. Malignant sores. 2. Sea turned to blood.3. Fresh waters to blood. 4. Men scorched. 5. Darkness over the kingdom of the beast. 6. Invasion from the east. 7. Greatest earthquake and widespread destruction. (The voice of God orders the angels to pour out these judgments. Rev 16:1).

Earth Dwellers will be those whom will be left behind. Those, of whom have been born again, do not need to be tested further; when they were born again, there remained no more testing for them to determine their relationship with Christ. The earth dwellers will remain defiant to God, but will be tested to determine if they have come to saving faith in Christ as their Lord and Savior. There is no reason for little babies, or anyone else whom has been born again, to undergo the judgments of God.

Revelation 3:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 6:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

Revelation 8:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

Revelation 11:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 13:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Revelation 13:14 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

Revelation 17:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

After the second coming of Christ at the Battle of Armageddon, those whom have been born again during the tribulation will go into the millennium. Those whom have not been born again will die and will be raised at the end of the millennium, where they will appear before the Great White Throne Judgment, and will be thrown into the lake of fire, which burns forever. Those whom have been born again, will go from the millennium to the eternal state of the new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem where they will dwell forever with God and the Lamb, where the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple (Rev 21:22).

Hillary Clinton says “The unborn have no rights”

Here is the key to eternal life: “You must be born again (John 3:3).

FDR And Stalin; Trump And Putin; They Met Privately! Help Wanted! “Truthful And Objective Journalism!”

Joseph Stalin Pure Evil

Who said this? “I think that if I give him everything I possibly can, and ask nothing from him in return, he won’t try to annex anything, and he will work with me for world democracy and peace.” (The answer can be found in this article; just look for it.)

Roosevelt’s initial remarks to Premier Stalin, quoted in the port, thus were apt. (see the complete report in the link) Nevertheless, while the wartime relations between the leaders of the United States and the Soviet Union were highlighted by their face-to-face meetings at Tehran and Yalta, there was a series of important events leading up to their first meeting in late 1943. It is to this important pre-Tehran background that we first turn.

In 1943, U.S. President Roosevelt met privately with Joseph Stalin, who was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. http://www.unc.edu/depts/diplomat/AD_Issues/amdipl_6/stefan.html (See printed article below). [Roosevelt and Stalin] “I am glad to see you. I have tried for a long time to bring this about.” — FDR to Stalin at their first private meeting in Tehran, November 28, 1943.

On July 16, 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump met privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The cruelty of Joseph Stalin was known to the world, including journalists.

About Joseph Stalin. Born to a poor family in Gori, Russian Empire, Stalin began his revolutionary career in his youth by joining the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stalin

The videos which follow add further information about the brutality of Stalin. The news article describes the relationship that developed between FDR and Stalin.

[Roosevelt and Stalin] “I am glad to see you. I have tried for a long time to bring this about.”
— FDR to Stalin at their first private meeting in Tehran, November 28, 1943.

FDR clearly possessed remarkable self-confidence.4 He believed that if he could establish close personal relations with Stalin, he could exert a positive influence on the Soviet leader. FDR expressed this belief directly to Churchill in a message on March 18, 1942:

I know you will not mind my being brutally frank when I tell you I think I can personally handle Stalin better than your Foreign Office or my State Department. Stalin hates the guts of all your top people. He thinks he likes me better, and I hope he will continue to do so.

(Hopkins’s report on his July 30 – 31, 1941 meeting with Stalin is perhaps one of the reasons for this element in FDR’s thinking.)

Given this belief, it was predictable that FDR would seek to meet à deux with Stalin; despite his efforts to do so, Stalin declined to meet with him until the Tehran Summit late in 1943. By that time, Stalin had apparently become convinced that there was no possibility of an acceptable compromise peace with Germany, or he may have concluded that he had played out the usefulness of the German card with the Western leaders. In either case, by early September of 1943, he agreed to meet with FDR and to coordinate operations designed to bring about the total defeat of the Third Reich.

In the following PBS (Taxpayer funded) and CBS, it is mentioned that the three prior U.S. Presidents did not meet privately with Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin. But, nothing was mentioned about the private meeting that took place between U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Russia’s Joseph Stalin. Neither have I found a main stream media report about the FDR and Stalin private meeting. But! Guess what! It’s amazing! I found the information on the FDR-Stalin meeting!

Details about Trump’s meeting with Putin in Helsinki

Consider the words in the following video of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as he spoke about his ideas for working with Joseph Stalin for world democracy and peace. I have neither heard anyone on Main Stream Media report that Roosevelt and Stalin met privately, nor that Roosevelt wanted to work in such a manner as he voiced about his desire to work with Stalin for world democracy and peace.

Silence Patton – FDR’s Enchantment with Stalin, “I think that if I give him everything I possibly can, and ask nothing from him in return, he won’t try to annex anything, and he will work with me for world democracy and peace.”

Help Wanted! Truthful And Objective Journalism!

Where are the journalist news types of CBS Edward R. Murrow, Douglas Edwards, Walter Cronkite; NBC Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, John Chancellor; ABC Harry Reasoner, Howard K. Smith? The names abruptly come to a halt! Each of those “journalists,” objectively pursued the truth before they reported their conclusion.

143 – Israel’s Prophets

JERUSALEM ARISE WITH PAUL WILBUR 1999 Concert. This video of Paul Wilbur and friends shows believers in Christ in Jerusalem in 1999 during the Feast Of Tabernacles; they love Israel. See more at the bottom.

Many people live their lives in total darkness, as it relates to their lack of understanding of the times and things that lie ahead. As a way of illuminating such spiritual darkness, God has provided biblical prophecy. Certain Jews, known as prophets, were chosen by God to present His Word to the Jews, whom are known in scripture as “God’s chosen people,” (Deuteronomy 7:6). The Jews were chosen by God to be a holy and righteous people, to bring a Holy and Righteous Messiah into our world. This study will focus on the prophets of Israel which spoke words of judgment and encouragement to the Jews during the times of their being dispersed from their “God ordained land” (Genesis 15:18-21), which occurred after the death of King Solomon in 931 B.C. The prophecies will be studied from the time of their being given by God to each prophet, until the times of their fulfillment.

This post introduces a series of articles that are being published in a study of the Old Testament Jewish Prophets. The focus of the study is to tie prophecies, that go back as far as 840 B.C., with the prophecies of Obadiah, and continue forward to the prophecies of Malachi, which took place between 450 and 400 B.C. There are two groups of prophets, which were considered to be either, major or minor prophets, depending on the length of their prophecies. However, no prophet, whether major or minor, may be considered to be any greater, or lesser, than any of the other prophets. There are four major prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel). There are twelve minor prophets (Jonah, Amos, Hosea, Obadiah, Joel, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi). The writings of the prophets link past history to future events that will affect, not only Jews, but Gentiles too. Each writer’s prophecies were future to the writer, but are “history, or future,” to us today, depending on their prophetic fulfillment.

142 – Zechariah 3.9 – Third and Fourth Covenants

At the time of the writing of this article, Jews around the world have already begun their time of honoring the Sabbath, which begins at sunset on Friday of each week, and continues through the following Saturday at sunset. Jews understand the Sabbath to be a gift from God (Elohim) to them, and that the Sabbath is a sign between God and the Jews. This belief is also held as being true by many believers in Christ.

It was in the year 1491 B.C., that the Sabbath was first observed by the Jews.

Exodus 16:29-30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

29 See, the Lord has given you the sabbath; therefore He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” 30 So the people rested on the seventh day.

Exodus 31:13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 “But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.

This article is a continuation of the post: “140 – The Jewish Prophet Zechariah – 3:9 – All People”

In this article we will discuss the time of Isaiah 2:4 (760 B.C.) which is known as the Kingdom Of God, and is also known as the millennium, the thousand-year reign of Messiah/Christ, and the Kingdom Age.

“You must be born again,” are words that relate to the spiritual state that anyone must have in order for them to be in the eternal Presence of God/Elohim/Yahweh/Adonai/Theos/Messiah/Christ (Ezekiel 36:24-27, John 3:3-8, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 1:5.)

In my post “139 – The Jewish Prophet Zechariah,” the words, “in one day,” are written. The wording of that verse follows:

Zechariah 3:9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

9 For behold, the stone that I have set before Joshua; on one stone are seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave an inscription on it,’ declares the Lord of hosts, ‘and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

The following terms are used interchangeably: Kingdom of God, Kingdom Age, Millennium, Millennial reign of Messiah/Christ.

“The Day,” in question, will be the dividing line between all that has been bad for Israel, and all that will be good for Israel, from then and forever. The Kingdom Age, which is also known as the Millennium, meaning one thousand years, dictates the length of time of the Kingdom Age, which will be a specific time for Israel to experience true peace. Following the Millennium/Kingdom Age will be the eternal state of the new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-2), which will be an eternity of peace for Israel. It is important to know that Israel is the only group that is identified as a nation that will have a specific place on earth for its habitation during the millennium. Other people, not nations, will also be present on earth during this time of peace, but none of them will occupy “their own land.” During the millennium, non-Jews will reside outside of the boundaries of Israel until they also enter the eternal state. With that having been said, it must also be stated that the Messiah/Christ will rule and reign over all of the earth during the millennium (Revelation 20:4-5), and that no one will enter the Kingdom Of God, or the eternal state, without first having been born again (John 3:3).

It will be during the Kingdom Age that the purposes of God for Israel will be fully realized; the words to Israel, from each of the Jewish prophets, will be seen to have been true. Non-Jews, whom will be present on earth at that time, will also benefit from the promises that have been made to Israel by God. The promises that God made to Israel are known as covenants. It will be during the Kingdom Age that those covenants will find their fulfillment. The following are the third and fourth of God’s four covenants that He made with Israel, as they relate to the Kingdom Age. As we continue with this study of the Jewish prophets, it is important to remember that the nation of Israel, through the Law, was a chosen people/nation to be a holy and righteous people to bring a holy and righteous Messiah into the world. It will also be through the Messiah/Christ, that the Law will be fulfilled (Matthew 5:17). It will be through faith in Messiah/Christ, as Lord and Savior, that Jews will enter the Kingdom Age. No other nation has ever been blessed with such a calling. People from other nations will also have individual Kingdom Age blessings, through a belief in Christ as Lord and Savior. However, those gentile blessings will be a result of the blessings that will have been showered upon Israel.

We will discuss the remaining two covenants

THIRD COVENANT

3. THE THIRD COVENANT. This is the promise that the King, throne, and royal house are fulfilled by the Messiah in the Kingdom Age. The fact that Israel will have a kingdom, over which David’s Son reigns as King, is based on this covenant.

2 Samuel 7:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.” ’ ”

Comment: NIV Quest Study Bible Notes. All the kings who ruled in Jerusalem after David (20 in all) were his descendants. No coup ever eradicated David’s line. But ultimately, the Messiah is the fulfillment of this promise. Mary was told by an angel that her son, Jesus, would someday occupy David’s throne (Lk 1:31–33).

FOURTH COVENANT

4. THE FOURTH COVENANT. This is the promise of a new heart, the forgiveness of sin, the filling of the Spirit, all of which will take place in the converted nation of Israel in the Kingdom Age. All of the spiritual blessings that Israel receives are in fulfillment of this covenant.

Jeremiah 31:31-34 New King James Version (NKJV)

31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Comment. NKJV Study Bible. 31:33 I will make: The new covenant would be initiated by God Himself, assuring its effectiveness. after those days: This expression looks forward to the time of fulfillment of the new covenant, which found fruition in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. put My law in their minds … write it on their hearts: Together the mind and heart describe the total inner motivations of mind, will, emotion, and spirit.

Ezekiel 37:26 New King James Version (NKJV) (As part of the New Covenant, God will place the Millennial Temple in Jerusalem. The tribulation temple, which was not of God, will be destroyed in an earthquake, that will occur “in one day,” prior to the building of the Millennial Temple, which will definitely “be of God.”)

26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore.

Zechariah 14:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV) (The Messiah will fight for Israel; the tribulation temple will be destroyed, “in one day.”)

3 Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.

Comment. MacArthur Study Bible. 14:3, 4 His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives. To prevent the eradication of His remnant, the Lord will personally intervene to fight against the gathered nations. Just as He fought for His people in the past, so He will do in the future as the ultimate Warrior-King. Jesus will literally return to the Mt. of Olives, located E of the Kidron Valley, just as the angels announced at His ascension (cf. Acts 1:11). When He does, there will be a tremendous topographical upheaval (perhaps an earthquake), a phenomenon not uncommon when God announces His coming in judgment (cf. Mic. 1:2–4; Nah. 1:5).

The Kingdom Age finds the complete fulfillment of all that God promised to the nation of Israel.

Israel’s Significance

The opening video of this article shows Jews whom reside in the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City in the United States. They are significant in this article’s discussion of Israel, and Jews residing throughout our world.

The Jewish Prophets of Israel wrote many things about the significance of Israel, as they believe were given to them by God (Elohim). Many people, whom identify themselves as being believers in Christ, agree with the writings of the Jewish prophets. The following is a Christian perspective of Israel.

It is impossible to have a study of eschatology, without also having an understanding of the nation of Israel, as it relates to the end times scenario. Any serious student of the end times must seek an understanding of the covenant promises of God to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3), as they relate to the land of Israel, the covenant seed of Israel, and the end times promise of the Kingdom Age. There is a movement that has existed for many years, and is very much alive today, that is known as “replacement theology.” The belief within replacement theology is that the church is the new Israel. The reasoning for such error is because Israel rejected Christ, is in a state of unbelief today, and that the promises and blessings that God made to Israel are now beneficent to the church. However, a careful reading of Genesis 12:1-3, shows that the blessings of God for Israel are not based on any state of belief, or unbelief, that may be present in the spiritual condition of Israel. God has never made a promise to any nation or people, as He has made to “the nation of Israel.” There is no such thing as “a Christian nation,” having God-ordained geographic boundaries. The church is the born again body of believers in Christ, and is by no means a nation. During the Kingdom Age, the nation of Israel will dwell within the God-given boundaries of the land of Israel, that is based on the covenant that God made with Abraham. During the time of the Millennium (Kingdom Age), born again Gentiles will reside in lands that are located beyond the borders of Israel. In order for Jews to find their place in the Kingdom Age land of Israel, each of those Jews must have been born again (John 3:3).

At present time, the nation of Israel is living in a condition of unbelief, as it relates to its relationship with Christ, the Messiah. The city of Tel Aviv is a very sinful city; the city of Jerusalem is a city of much less sin. Since 1948, Jews have been returning to their homeland, and in a state of unbelief. Unbelieving Jews will be tested for belief in Christ during the Tribulation. At the end of the Tribulation, those Jews, whom have come to saving faith in Christ, will return in belief to the Lord, and to a much larger land, that extends from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq. Regardless of Israel’s sinfulness, or of its proper standing with Messiah/Christ, God’s Word is firm: Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.” We have no choice, but to bless Israel, or to be the targets of God’s curses.

Consider the following comments that relate to the opening video of this article.

http://israelvideosfeed.comBorough Park (usually spelled Boro Park by its residents), is a neighborhood in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City in the United States; Borough Park covers an extensive grid of streets between Bay Ridge and Prospect Park. Borough Park had its beginnings in a few streets of cottages called “Blythebourne” erected in 1887 by the speculative builder, Electus B. Litchfield.Another developer, William Reynolds, built more speculative housing in the area, which was served by a steam railroad, the Brooklyn, Bath and Coney Island West End Line.
Borough Park is home to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities outside of Israel, with one of the largest concentrations of Jews in the United States, and Orthodox traditions rivaling many insular communities. Since the average number of children in Hasidic and Hareidi families is 6.72, Borough Park is experiencing sharp growth. It is an economically diverse area, with rich, working class and poor people living side-by-side and going to the same schools and synagogues.
Its heart lies between 9th and 18th Avenues and 40th and 61st Streets. Borough Park is patrolled by the NYPD’s 66th [6] Precinct and by Boro Park Shomrim Citizen Safety Patrol

Israel – Prophecy And Current Era 71918

Dr. Jimmy DeYoung and Dr. John Ankerberg discuss the current situation in the Middle East and Egypt in light of Biblical Prophecy.

As you can see, the video report on the situation in Egypt and Middle East was made in 2011. As you can also see, in your mind, things have not changed much about the political instability in that area of the world. Jimmy DeYoung mentioned that the situation in the middle east correlates to the prophetic scriptures of Daniel, Chapter 11. I would like to show the passages of Daniel 11:36-45, and provide a limited commentary on that area of prophecy, that has been provided by the following individuals that are highly respected for their knowledge of the end times.

The following link will take you to Daniel 11:36-45

Daniel 11:36: The King is the Antichrist.
Daniel 11:40: The King Of the South is the leader of a political and military force that comes from south of the Holy Land, but the possibility is that it involves much more than only Egypt, and can be identified as an African army.
Daniel 11:40: The King of the North is more than the small territory possessed by Syria, and probably includes all the political and military forces of the lands to the north of the Holy Land.

Daniel 11:36-45: This section gives details of Antichrist’s future career, and requires reference to some details of Israel’s last days (10:14 and 12:1-2).
Daniel 11:37: “the gods of his fathers”: Antichrist will have no respect for religion or religious heritages. The phrase does not mean that Antichrist must be a Jew. He will be unkind, cruel, and inhumane.
Daniel 11:38: Antichrist’s “god” will be military power and activity.
Daniel 11:40-45: In the tribulation period, “the king of the south” and “the king of the North” will attempt a pincer movement against Antichrist (v 40). But, with Israel as his base (vs 41), he will first defeat Egypt, then Libya and Ethiopia (Sudan). “will follow at his heels” (v 43). Shall be part of his dominion.”rumors from the East and from the North” (v 44). May relate to the armies of Rev 9:13-21; 16:12). The threat of these armies will cause Antichrist to return to Israel, making his headquarters between Jerusalem and the Mediterranean (v 45). But, he will come to his end at the hands of the victorious, returning Christ (Rev 19:11-21).
