What Does “Shabbat Shalom” Mean?

God will protect His chosen people at the Battle of Armageddon.

Zechariah 14:1-14 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Lord Will Rule the Earth

1 Watch, for the day of the Lord is coming when your possessions will be plundered right in front of you! 2 I will gather all the nations to fight against Jerusalem. The city will be taken, the houses looted, and the women raped. Half the population will be taken into captivity, and the rest will be left among the ruins of the city.

3 Then the Lord will go out to fight against those nations, as he has fought in times past. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem. And the Mount of Olives will split apart, making a wide valley running from east to west. Half the mountain will move toward the north and half toward the south. 5 You will flee through this valley, for it will reach across to Azal. Yes, you will flee as you did from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all his holy ones with him.

6 On that day the sources of light will no longer shine, 7 yet there will be continuous day! Only the Lord knows how this could happen. There will be no normal day and night, for at evening time it will still be light.

8 On that day life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously in both summer and winter.

9 And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day there will be one Lord—his name alone will be worshiped.

10 All the land from Geba, north of Judah, to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become one vast plain. But Jerusalem will be raised up in its original place and will be inhabited all the way from the Benjamin Gate over to the site of the old gate, then to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11 And Jerusalem will be filled, safe at last, never again to be cursed and destroyed.

12 And the Lord will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On that day they will be terrified, stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will fight their neighbors hand to hand. 14 Judah, too, will be fighting at Jerusalem…”

Corresponding to this passage of scripture is Revelation 19:11-20:4

Revelation 19:11-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Rider on the White Horse

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. 12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. 15 From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. 16 On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vultures flying high in the sky: “Come! Gather together for the great banquet God has prepared. 18 Come and eat the flesh of kings, generals, and strong warriors; of horses and their riders; and of all humanity, both free and slave, small and great.”

19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the world and their armies gathered together to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on behalf of the beast—miracles that deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 Their entire army was killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the one riding the white horse. And the vultures all gorged themselves on the dead bodies.

Revelation 20:1-4

The Thousand Years

1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key to the bottomless pit and a heavy chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon—that old serpent, who is the devil, Satan—and bound him in chains for a thousand years. 3 The angel threw him into the bottomless pit, which he then shut and locked so Satan could not deceive the nations anymore until the thousand years were finished. Afterward he must be released for a little while.

4 Then I saw thrones, and the people sitting on them had been given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus and for proclaiming the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Millions Missing! Where Are They?

RAPTURE part 3 : Scene of RAPTURE in a Church ! Millions of people are suddenly missing, even from churches. Consider that just because someone attends a church, they are not necessarily born again. Consider the horrible things that will soon follow the rapture. Consider the following scripture.

1 Corinthians 15:50-53 New Living Translation (NLT)

50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.

51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

At the time that Christ comes in the air for the catching up of the born again believers/saints in Christ (Rapture), those born again deceased saints will be brought up out of their places of death; and those saints whom are still alive, will suddenly be lifted up from the earth, and will be given bodies and souls that will be eternally perfect. Their spirits will have already been made eternally perfect from the time that these saints were born again. All of us, whom are born again, will be caught up by Christ, God the Son, and taken to the Presence of God, the Father, in the third heaven. At that point in time, there will never, ever, be any separation between God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) and His caught up and resurrected saints, whom will never suffer from sickness and will never die. As for those whom are deceased at the time of the rapture, and were not born again at the time of their deaths, their decayed bodies will remain in their graves, or other places, until the time of the great white throne judgment (Rev 20:10-15), where they will be raised to be cast into the lake of fire, which burns forever and ever. As for those whom are alive at the time of the rapture, and have not been born again, they will remain on earth and enter the tribulation; small children will not be left behind. They will die natural deaths or be killed during the tribulation. These two groups of unsaved people will have eternal torment, and separation from God. Both will face the great white throne judgment and be cast into the lake of fire. Bodies, souls and spirits that have not been born again, can not enter the Holy places of God (heaven, kingdom age, new earth). John 3:3 makes the case for the need of being born again:

John 3:3 New Living Translation (NLT) 3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.

Consider the things that will confront those whom will be left behind on earth after the rapture takes place. The video shows a world that no one would ever want to occupy. After the rapture of millions of saints, soon after will follow utter chaos, natural and physical, such as was spoken by Christ:

Matthew 24:21 New Living Translation (NLT) 21 For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again.

The Rapture Of The Church. The coming of Christ in the air to remove his born again believers. Only “earth dwellers” (unbelievers) will remain on Earth. The raptured believers in Christ will return with Him on white horses, with Him leading the way to the Battle of Armageddon (Rev 16:12-16; 19:11-14; 19:15-21).

Revelation 3:10 New Living Translation (NLT) 10 “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. The perseverance is provided by God to those whom are born again. (1 John 5:4)

1 John 5:4 New Living Translation (NLT)

4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.

Consider the news reports that will come from all around the world.


Airplanes crashing – flight crews missing! Cars and trucks colliding – drivers missing! Hospitals report, “No babies anywhere!” Unborn babies missing from their mothers’ wombs!
School teachers frantically looking for children! Clothing seen in restaurants and businesses where people had been seated!
Chaos everywhere! Network news anchors and theologians attribute the situation to global warming and alien abductions!
Many pastors can’t be found – many others are being interviewed by radio and tv news crews!
Left behind heads of states call for states of emergency!

Atmospheric and earthly disturbances preceding the earthly second coming of Christ to Earth to judge sin, “humanly and natural.” The Great White Throne Judgment occurs one thousand years later (Rev 20:7-15).

The earth will be destroyed, by God, not by global warming (2 Peter 3:13).

2 Peter 3:11-13 New Living Translation (NLT)

11 Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, 12 looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. 13 But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness.

A new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem will be created for all of God’s born again saints to inhabit for all of eternity. This creation is known as the eternal state.

Revelation 21:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)

21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.


Consider a day like the one that is described above in the rapture video. Some people who are reading this post have no understanding of the event that is being described. That is sad because most readers of my posts consider themselves to be believers in Christ. Far too many Christians can not explain the essential elements of the Rapture of The Church, the Tribulation or of the Second Coming Of Christ. Many Christian parents don’t know enough about this subject to teach their children about it. Far too many pastors are not teaching the things of the end times to their congregations. It is important for all believers in Christ to know that they are secure in Christ for salvation, and that they will be kept “from the tribulation,” and will not have to “go through it” (Rev 3:10). It is also important for believers in Christ to be able to know and explain how and why they have been saved, and how and why they will escape the tribulation.

The main-line reform denominations have lost their way. The African church has lost its way. Check out the following links to see the denominations that are suspect, as it relates to which church bodies have placed politics over the gospel.

Check out the suspects:

No one should walk into the sanctuary of a church and see a large picture of our former president posted there. No denomination should teach that it is okay to kill unborn babies. No denomination should teach that same-sex marriage is okay. No denomination should show anything less than Godly respect for the nation of Israel. No denomination should remain silent as the democrat party is trying to steal elections. No denomination should remain silent as the democrat party encourages people to take to the streets, restaurants and other businesses to confront conservative members of our nation. Since our churches are reluctant to speak out against the sins that are attacking our nation, parents must take the offensive and speak out against the sinful moral fabric of the democrat party, and ensure that their children understand the truth of the following verse of scripture.

Genesis 4:7 New Living Translation (NLT)

7 You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”

Consider the truth of the following link.

Church’s Sign: “Don’t Vote for Democrats on Tuesday and Sing ‘Oh How I Love Jesus’ on Sunday”

Here are the hard cold facts of this matter. It is no secret that the democrat party supports abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, opposition to Israel, and the use of violence to achieve its ungodly goals. If you believe in, or support, abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, or the overthrow of our nation by the democrat party, you show no evidence that you been born again. When the rapture of the church takes place, you will be left behind on earth to suffer from the persecution of the anti-Christ and the judgments of God on a sinful world. You will die, or be killed, during the tribulation. You will be raised to stand before God at the great white throne judgment, and will be throne into the lake of fire, where you will suffer from eternal punishment. Parents! If you don’t get a grip on sin in your life, and in the lives of your children, all of you will stand before the great white throne judgment. You will be cast into the lake of fire, “you and your children.” It will not be a place of family reunions; it will be a place of torment. Animals give their lives trying to save their young; far too many human mothers boast about having made decisions to kill their unborn babies. Even the liberal cities of our nation’s northwest states are coming under the attacks of democrats who want to overthrow our nation. How would you like such violence to be taking place in front of your place of business?

The Rapture

John Ankerberg Show Published on Feb 27, 2014. In this program, Dr. John Ankerberg and his guests, Dr. Renald Showers and Dr. Jimmy DeYoung, discuss the differences between the times when the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ will occur.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ (NASB)

Revelation 1:1

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicate by His angel to His bond-servant John,

My note: Notice that this is “the Revelation,” singular, and not “revelations,” plural.

Revelation 1:3

3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it for the time is near.

My note: Notice the encouragement that is given in this verse. Blessings come from reading, hearing, and heeding the things that written in the Book of Revelation. The participants in the video are identified at the bottom of this page, along with their biographical information.

The catching up of the church (rapture, harpazo, rapio)

Christ, through the rapture, will suddenly take away the saints of God away from earth, so that they will not have to endure the “soon to follow” judgments of God on a sinful world in a seven-year period of time that is known as the tribulation.

(Rapture: English; Harpazo: Greek; Rapio: Latin). The rapture can be explained as being, “the catching up,” or “the snatching away.” The “catching up” of God’s people has been used by God in the past for His purposes, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. It will happen again in the future.

Rapture verses.

Christ, God the Son, comes in the air (not to stand on earth) and catches born again believers away to the third heaven, to the Presence of God, the Father.

John 14:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

1 Corinthians 15:50-54 New King James Version (NKJV)

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

The Second Coming Of Christ

Christ returns to earth, and stands on the earth, for the purpose of judging sin and for establishing his earthly kingdom, which is also known as the millennium and the thousand-year reign of Christ.

We will address the second coming of Christ in the next article that I publish.

Empowering Individuals to Optimize Their Potential

I have often been asked about what one needs to do to achieve success in any given field. In this article, I will attempt to provide some insights from my personal experience and journey and I do hope you find them useful.

1. Decision

This is arguably the most important step you have to take, if you want to achieve anything meaningful in your career or business. Success begins the day to take a decision to move in a definition direction towards your goal. Often, I have asked some persons who come for advice what exactly they want to achieve? What type of job they are looking for? What type of car, house or goods do want to have? Most times I get the answer “anything” Just any job or car or whatever their goal is. The reality is anything means nothing.
So to succeed, you need to have clarity…

When Did Jesus Say To Weep?

Lift Up Your Eyes!

These are some of the last words Jesus said before he was crucified.

As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. Jesus turned and said to them,“Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’”
Luke 23:26-29 NIV

“Don’t cry about me,” Jesus was saying. “Cry because someday mankind will be so clueless about why I created them that they won’t understand children and families!”

This is part of why God created mankind, and it’s found in the first chapter…

The Saluting Marine – A Patriot

Notice the correct position of the Marine’s right hand as he holds his salute.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Citizens should stand upright and place the right hand over the heart while reciting the pledge. Men not in uniform should remove any nonreligious head covering.

This video has been used numerous times in my blog posts. With God’s help, it will continue to be one of my favorite ways of showing the greatness of The United States Of America.

6 To Armageddon – The Feasts

Most Beautiful Shabbat Video Ever!!!!Having grown up in a city of a significant Jewish population, and having gone to school with many Jewish classmates, the experience was gratifying, and has stayed with me all of my life. I can remember two special Jewish classmates that started first grade with me, and also graduated with me; they were twin sisters, and grew up in a wonderful Jewish family. During each school week, my Jewish friends went to Hebrew School, which took place at the end of each regular school day, four days a week, for two hours each day. My question was, “why can’t I go too?” lol

In my adult years, after I began to understand the Godly significance of the Jewish people (Deuteronomy 7:6), I was blessed by the closeness of Jewish families, which I observed frequently. One particular Jewish neighborhood was located near two synagogues. The Sabbath begins at sunset on each Friday, and ends at sunset on the next day, Saturday. I can remember seeing male Jews walking together to Friday evening Sabbath services. On Saturday mornings, I saw women and Children as they walked to sabbath services. The women pushed strollers, having small children in them; older children walked too, and talked to their Jewish children friends. The women would be dressed very modestly, in conservative clothing, and shared in their own conversations. It was a beautiful site to see, especially on sunny Saturday mornings

The festivals that the Jews observed began to take on a special significance within me. During Hanukkah and Passover, I would drive through one particular Jewish neighborhood. I saw groups of Jewish friends and families walking to their specific houses of meeting for their Shabbat (Sabbath), Passover and Hanukkah meals and observances. A warmness would come over me as I saw, through large bay windows, the families and friends seated around a long table. The senior male would sit at the far end of the table. His wife (female!) would be seated at the other end of the table, closest to the window. Candles were lit, giving a beautiful glow to a soul-stirring Jewish setting. The opening video of this post shows a scene of Jewish family and friends as they honor Sabbath. Such a scene is symbolic of the warm memories that are stored deeply in my mind, that I am sharing now.

As a part of this article, I will begin a discussion of the seven, “Feasts of the Lord.” As each of the feasts comes near on the Jewish calendar, I will publish an article on those feasts to help non-Jews to gain a better understanding of a special part of Jewish life that is often not understood by non-Jews

The following video introduces the aforementioned study of the feasts. Each of the three men that are taking place in the discussion were born to Jewish families, but have come to know Christ as their Messiah. The names of the men are (left to right), “Michael Rydelnik, Avner Boskey and Michael Brown.

Jesus in the Feasts of Israel — Introduction – As we continue our study of, “To Armageddon,” which is enclosed in the overall teaching of “The Jewish Prophets,” we approach another time of “God’s Pan For the Ages,” known as “The Lord’s Appointed Times” and “the Appointed times of the Lord.” You will notice in the following verses that God told Moses, to the tell the children of Israel, to proclaim “The Lord’s Appointed Times,” at their “appointed times.

Leviticus 23:1, 2 44 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

1 The Lord spoke again to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘The Lord’s appointed times which you shall proclaim as holy convocations—My appointed times are these:

4 ‘These are the appointed times of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at the times appointed for them.

44 So Moses declared to the sons of Israel the appointed times of the Lord.

There was never such a proclamation given to non-Jews to keep the feasts. However, it is a great learning experience for non-Jews, to gain a clearer understanding of “the feasts of the Lord.” The feasts will be fulfilled in Christ, and in end time events.

It is amazing to know that Passover (Matthew 26:26-29) and the Feast of Tabernacles (Zechariah 14:19) will be observed during the millennium. The feasts are also known as Festivals.

An explanation of each of the feasts is provided next. More information will be provided for each festival as the time becomes closer. Each festival begins at sunset on the first day of each festival, and continues until sunset of the last day of the festival.

Pesach/Passover — (April 19 – April 20, 2019) Pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb whose blood would be shed for our sins. Jesus was crucified on the day of preparation for the Passover, at the same time that the lambs were being slaughtered for the Passover meal that evening.

Chag Hamotzi/Unleavened Bread — (April 20 – April 27, 2019) Pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life, making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus’ body was in the grave during the first days of this feast, like a kernel of wheat planted and waiting to burst forth as the bread of life.

Yom Habikkurim/First Fruits — (April 21 – April 22, 2019) Pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. Jesus was resurrected on this very day, which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to him in I Corinthians 15:20 as the “first fruits from the dead.”

Shavuot/Harvest/Weeks/Pentecost — (June 8 – June 10, 2019) Pointed to the great harvest of souls, both Jew and Gentile. The Church was actually established on this day when the Messiah poured out the Holy Spirit, and 3,000 souls responded to Peter’s first proclamation of the Gospel.

Rosh Hashanah/Trumpets – (September 9, 2018 – September 11, 2018) Points to the Rapture when the Messiah will appear in the heavens as a Bridegroom coming for His bride, the Church. The Rapture is associated in Scripture with the blowing of a loud trumpet (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:52)

Yom Kippur/Atonement — (September 18 – 19, 2018) Points to the day of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return to earth. That will be the day of atonement for the Jewish remnant when they “look upon Him whom they have pierced,” repent of their sins, and receive Him as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:1-6, 25-36).

Sukkot/Tabernacles — (September 23 – 30, 2018) Points to the Lord’s promise that He will once again tabernacle with His people when He returns to reign over all the world from Jerusalem (Micah 4:1-7).

We have been studying. Now, let’s worship.
