What You Can Expect in 2012

What You Can Expect in 2012

In the above article, Gary Kah lays out the developments underway and the things that you can expect to see take place in 2012. Gary has access to a world most of us cannot get into. 2012 is going to be a significant time of change for the formation of the fourth beast in Dan. 7:7, 19 and of the harlot that rides atop that beast (Rev. 17:4-6).

Have you made provision to be counted among Yahweh's elect? (Rom. 10:9, 10, 13)

On Declaring the Return/Sounding the Alarm!

Christianity in America has for so long enjoyed a dominant/favored status among the population and culture, and a favored relationship with the U.S. government. Because Christianity has been so widespread, and for years, almost considered one with American culture, the large majorities of those in American churches attended church, took part in church programs and classes, and were satisfied with their Christianity. If someone went out to the streets to witness to others in the streets, and proclaiming God’s word, or traded their well-paying job to go serve others and be involved in a non-profit ministry, you were seen as a radical flame or a good, but unusual believer on the extremities of the faith. Persecution came to be seen as something that occurred in other parts of the world, but not America. Pretty soon, we came to understand that to be born in America, was to be born Christian.

But the question is, is that Biblical? Is that the Biblical picture we see of Christianity? The apostle Peter tells us that for “everyone who wants to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Tim. 3:12). There’s no ifs ands or buts about it. Peter, inspired by the Spirit of Christ Jesus Himself, tells us that we will be persecuted if we seek to follow Christ.

This should not surprise us. Why? Because the Bible tells us that man in his natural, sinful state, is an enemy to God and his ways, that he is hostile to God (Rom 5:10, 8:7). So of course he is going to be hostile to those who have the Spirit of God in them (Rom 8:14). The Bible also tells us that Satan is the spirit that is at work in the sons of disobedience (Eph. 2:2), and that he is in control of the world system in which we live (1 John 5:19). So by the very fact that we have the Spirit of the living God in us, enrages him. But he can do nothing to us except tempt us, and take what areas of our life we allow him to have through our indifference or sin. For Jesus, the Son of the living God, gave his followers authority over the evil one and every unclean (i.e. unholy, demon) spirit (Matt. 10:1).

The Bible does not give a rosy picture of life for the believer, especially for the generation living before Christ returns. Paul, writing to Timothy, says, “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these.” 2 Tim.3:1-5

If you have been paying attention, this describes to a ‘T’ the times that we are living in. Why would the Lord have Paul include this, unless He wanted His followers to know it? Just as the Jews were set apart from the nations of the world, so His people in the church age are set apart by the fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), but the characteristics listed in Gal. 5:19-21 and in 2 Tim. 3:1-5 are the marks of those who do not know Christ as their God and Savior.

The LORD also tells His people of events that he has declared from long ago, that will mark the last times. And often the prophets of God were persecuted when they declared God’s word. They were seen as ‘troublers’ or ‘gloom and doom’ prophets, but they had to be obedient to God’s word. The prophet Amos had this to say: Amos 5:18 18 Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be darkness and not light;

The prophet Joel records: Joel 2:1-2 For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near, 2 A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, So there is a great and mighty people; There has never been anything like it, Nor will there be again after it To the years of many generations.

Jesus tells his followers of events to take place in the world before His return and the close of the age. All these events are happening around us. The Jews were brought back to Israel in fulfillment of the prophecies given in Ezekiel 36 and 37, God has moved Egyptian against Egyptian according to His word in Isaiah 19, the nations are gathering against Israel for war as described in Psalm 83, Magog, Persia and the other Muslim nations are aligning politically and arming themselves for the Battle of Magog in Ezekiel 38. Politically, the governments are moving themselves together, creating unions to bring about the final, one-world union prophesied in Daniel 7:7, 19ff.

The LORD promised the Jews through Moses, before first entering the Promised Land, that He was going to exile them among the nations for their disobedience to His covenant in the Torah (Deut. 30:1). This happened, and they were scattered to the ends of the earth for almost two thousand years. The apostle Peter tells us in 2 Ptr. 3:8 that “a thousand years a like a day to the Lord.” The LORD spoke in Hosea: Hosea 6:2 2 "He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, That we may live before Him.

The prophet Amos said it well: Amos 3:8 8 A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy? When we see and discern these things, who can but preach? What is the goal of the Christian faith, if not the realization of Biblical Judaism, the reigning on earth of God’s Messiah (Zech 14:9; Dan. 7:14, 27).

In preaching and proclaiming that all these events are taking place is not a gloom and doom mindset. These are events that the LORD told us must take place before His coming. We believe that God is good, and that everything that He does is good. So many of us grew up in the era (and in fact, live in a continuation of it) where we are told, “God has a wonderful plan for your life!” Ultimately, if you’re elect, God’ does have a wonderful plan for your life, to live and reign with the Messiah, but in the meantime, that plan means persecution on this side, and possibly death. What did the apostle Paul say about this? “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (Phil. 3:10-11).

“Rejoice in the LORD always, I will say it again, rejoice!” Phil. 3:1

“And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those that love him, who are called according to His purpose.” Rom. 8:28

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come Lord Jesus” (Rev. 22:20).

Visit of the Magi

This is a lesson I made up for the youth.  The reason the Magi, these "king-makers" came to worship and honor the King of kings, is because they were familiar with the writings of the Hebrew prophets via the exiled Jews living in Babylon.  It seems like there is so often a disdain by a certain segment of those even in the Church, of "end-time prophecies"!  These same prophecies brought the Magi to worship the arrival of Earth's true King.  And these prophecies, words of God, only a portion were fulfilled in the first coming of Mashiach (Messiah).  As we celebrate the birth of Christ (Messiah) this year, and so much fear is in the air about the future, let us remember and strive to study the word of God, as the remainder of these prophecies are being fulfilled in our very day.

Why did the Wise men travel to visit Jesus?                      

What scripture did they quote to tell about Jesus being born? (Mich 5:2; Ezek. 34:23)

So these guys knew the Hebrew prophets! How? Remember, the Jews were punished by God and taken captive by the Chaldeans into Babylon. These wise men or magi were from that area.

Did you know other prophesies were made about the coming Messiah? Because those were pretty specific about his birth place and life.

We looked at one this morning in the sermon. Isaiah 9:1-7; - ruler of Israel, also mighty God (El Gibbor)

Isaiah 7:14- ‘maiden’ (almah) – premarried girl, i.e., a virgin - virgin birth

Genesis 49:18 – “I wait for your ‘Yeshua’ O LORD!”

Ps. 22:14-18 – Foretells crucifixion 700 years before it was known to the Jews

Isaiah 53:3-5 – rejected by man, a man of sorrows, who bore our sin (iniquities).

So why were the wise men wise men?

If all religions lead to the same God, why did they take a three month trek through the desert fighting sandstorms, snakes, scorpions, lions and heat to find Jesus?

Couldn’t they be fine worshipping one of the gods of their homeland?

Why is Jesus the only way to be ‘saved’? Acts 4:12; John 3:16-18; John 14:6

Is The Fourth Beast Emerging?

Daniel 7:7 7 "After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.

This beast (or kingdom) is practically in place now. Because the U.S. has been such an economic giant historically, it had to be taken out of the way, and that's what this whole sub-prime mortgage crash and corruption with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has been about, the inflation and devaluation of American currency. Because America runs on a credit system that it was bound to crash at some point. And they've been working for that day, not conspiratorially, but openly. And the latest development is the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act, by which the government can arrest and detain any American citizen they deem a 'terrorist' and hold them in detention indefinitely.

The Bible declares hard times for the end days... and we are upon them. Begin storing up food to carry you through a couple of weeks and water to drink. An informative, conservative, Biblical site that is a good resource in understanding all that has been and is going on, is

The important thing for us as believers to remember is that God is in control and accomplishing His will for humanity and all creation.

And those who have been born again (Jn. 1:12, spiritually made alive to God) through faith in Christ alone, and no other god or Deity or system to which they have made vows and oaths. Only those who follow Christ alone by faith. 2 Corinthians 5:21 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

*An important update: The prophecies of the pope are culminating with the 112th pope.  It appears he is readying to come into power this year (2012) in fulfillment of St. Malacy's prophecy, and in conjunction of many world religions which HAVE set the date for this new world order to occur in 2012!  For more info on this incredible topic, go to or see

Criticism of Islam Could Soon be a Crime in America

Commentary on Aaron Russo video

 I have written a response to the interview with Aaron Russo, and his insight into 9/11, government corruption, RFID chipping, and the formation of the one world government, found here:

This is a response to the Aaron Russo video.  I think he's a got a lot of good info on there, but I also see that he does not have a Biblical approach, and he's missing the overall endtime scenario. I do think there is a group of American/European elites who are controlling and moving things together under their control into a global union, or government. But I also see Islam playing a part in it to, trying to accomplish a global Caliphate and worldwide Islam under sharia law. The church of Rome, we also see pushing for an authoritative centralized world bank and one-world religion. I think the evil one has several fronts that he's working from, not just one, to bring about his end time regime.
It seems like the "radical" or orthodox Muslim sects are largely going to be wiped out through the battles with Israel (Ps. 83; Isa. 17:1; Ezek. 38). This is going to leave a predominately 'moderate' Muslim populace in the world, and I know the pope has been in communication with Muslim leaders, seeking to bring everyone together in "one faith." It may be completely true that 9/11 was set up by the controlling parties or not... I definitely think that we have to keep our eyes on the bigger scenario. I know in Dan. 11:40-45, it speaks of the one-world king having to fight wars, with the king of the south and others. I expect, with the regional countries there being primarily Islamic, even under the global rule of Antichrist, there will still be some Muslim infighting till the end.
The evil one has to be recognized on all fronts where he is working, and Islam is set up as a photo negative of Christianity for the last days, so I'm pretty sure that it will play a massive role in the coming deception of the world-teacher and his prophet.

What is the role of an elder?

In the church today, there is much confusion over who has the authority within the church, or what the Biblical model of governance looks like. In this article from Desiring God, pastor John Piper lays out succinctly what the Bible teaches concerning the role of an elder/overseer/bishop/pastor.

What is the role of an elder?

A Pastor's lament on Twilight

This movie seems to be taking America, and our youth by storm.  And it seems strongly appealing to women, because of its strong message on Romance and the theme of validation of personhood.  But are the answers it's giving really Biblical?  And what of the occult nature of the film, is it okay for Christians to watch and enjoy, or to be obsessed with such a topic?

Some people will make the case that Twilight is simply fantasy.  Fantasy is a powerful thing, because it engages the person's imagination and feelings, and now with movie media, it may employ fantastical effects and music, which manipulates the emotions.  Many of today's movies and TV series employ the use of these computerized effects with music to manipulate the audience and bring them in line with the message of the movie.  And emotions are a powerful thing. 

Some may make the case that Twilight is no different than C.S. Lewis' use of fantasy.  But here's where the difference lies, in Lewis' chronicles of Narnia, they employ analogies to convey Biblical, spiritual truths to children, as Aslan was an accurate analogy of Christ dying for the sins of Edmund (the world; Jn. 3:16).  But Twilight is using occult ritual, belief and lore to teach about the "un-dead," those cursed to live an eternal darkness, yet it is portrayed in the movies as being a good thing to be on the side of darkness and eternally accursed (Is. 5:20)!

Wicca is known to be one of the fastest growing religions in America today. Our kids' exposure/desensitization to witchcraft/sorcery and magic that has appeared exponentially on TV shows today. It's one of Satan's tools, people are indoctrinated through movies.

"We know that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one." 1 Jn. 5:19

"in which you formerly walked, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience." Eph. 2:2

These verses tell us that Satan controls the world (remember when he offered Jesus the kingdoms of the world), and that he is presently working in the world.

Acts 19 speaks of when Paul was in Ephesus, a great center for witchcraft, sorcery and astrology, and tells how in verse Acts 19:19, a mass number of Christians who had not yet renounced witchcraft renounced and burnt their magical papyri, totalling 50,000 days wages.  Even though this people had accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, and were now indwelt with the holy spirit, they had not renounced their association with or practice of witchcraft, of 'daimon guides,' who were spirits that took up residence within the people, and brought other daimons in the name of serving the practitioner.  After seeing the failed attempt of an exorcism performed by non-believers in the name of Jesus, the believers saw the reality of the message of Christ, and of His complete authority over demons (by their own admission), they then renounced and burnt their books which instructed them in the ways of the demonic.1 

The Apostle Peter warns believers: "Be of sober spirit, be on the alert, your adversary, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." (1 Ptr. 5:8).

Why would Peter need to warn believers about being devoured by Satan? Wasn't he defeated on the cross? Don't they have the Holy Spirit in them? How does Peter, being inspired by the Spirit (2 Ptr. 1:21) write this for believers? Clearly there is a danger for believers to be 'devoured' by Satan. Or what about the man handed over to Satan for the destruction of His flesh but the salvation of his soul?

Some say that the Twilight series is just harmless fantasy.  Pornography is also fantasy. Is it okay for a Christian man to enjoy pornography? Any believer would clearly say no. There have cases where people have received demons through their involvement with viewing/delighting in pornography. How is that different from viewing/delighting in a movie about occultic creatures, such as Vampires (the eternally damned, unchristian) who twist and pervert the truth.

What does scripture state about our entertainment choices, upon which we are to think/"dwell on"?

Philippians 4:8

8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Does this fit the Twilight movies? Is this something we would watch for entertainment with Jesus? I'm not trying to anger anyone, but get people to think through the issues. 

I am trying to warn against something that is quickly sweeping through the church. What happens when church leadership embraces the demonic? Is God pleased with such things?

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

For His people, the Church, God commands us to come out and be separate.  He doesn't tell us it's okay to enjoy movies about Satanic rituals and child sacrifice.  What agreement does light have with darkness?  what agreement does Christ have with Belial?  "Come out from their midst and be separate," says the Lord.

1 John 5:20-21

20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols.

1 Arnold, Clinton E., 3 Crucial Questions about Spiritual Warfare.  Baker Books: Grand Rapids.  1997.  p. 91-92.

"[O]ne magical text explains how to perform a ritual in which "a daimon comes as an assistant who will eat and sleep with you."  This being is then described as "a god; he is an aerial spirit which you have seen."  Once the door is opened, others invade the life of the person: "He will quickly bring daimons [for a banquet], and for you he will adorn these servants with sashes.  These things he does quickly."...  If prior to, and even subsequent to, their conversion, believers in Ephesus were engaging in this sort of magic - summoning spirits and inviting them into their lives - how would the apostle Paul have responded?  Surely he was not blind to this phenomenon.  Was providing these people with instruction in the Scriptures enough, or was more direct intervention required on occasion? (Arnold, p. 92).

Recent List of Quakes

If you've been watching the news, and paying attention over the past several years, this continual shaking of the earth is continuing along with the other prophetic signs of Matthew 24, and other Biblical scriptures.

Oklahoma shook up with a 5.6 Quakes and 10 aftershocks:

Mark 13:9-10 9 "But be on your guard; for they will deliver you to the courts, and you will be flogged in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them. 10 "The gospel must first be preached to all the nations...

Mark 13:12-14
12 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and have them put to death. 13 "You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 "But when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing where it should not be (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains...

Mark 13:20-30 20 "Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days. 21 "And then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ'; or, 'Behold, He is there'; do not believe him; 22 for false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23 "But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance. 24 "But in those days, after that tribulation, THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, 25 AND THE STARS WILL BE FALLING from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. 26 "Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory. 27 "And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven. 28 "Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. 29 "Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 30 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

‘Israel planning Gaza attack to avoid Schalit ... JPost - Defense

‘Israel planning Gaza attack to avoid Schalit ... JPost - Defense

So claims the Hamas spokesman... which the Muslims are looking for any excuse to fight with Israel, especially as the end goal of their religion is annihilation to the Jewish people (ethnic cleansing) and global domination, forcing the world to submit to sharia law.

Islam is pressuring, bullying its way into American legislation, forcing its way to take over our country. In the religion of Islam, the religion is combined with government. There is no seperation of church and state. And there is no freedom of speech. In Sept., Compassdirect reports that a 17 year old boy was executed by beheading for becoming a Christian.  And this is what is awaiting our nation, as it continues to favor Islam who puts to death its enemies, while it continues to remove priviledges and protection from Christianity, which teaches its adherents to love its enemies.

But the end-times quickly unfold before us, as tensions mount with Israel, and the Muslim nations surrounding her make threats and gloat, for in the eyes of man, her doom is certain. But these naitons don't take God's word into account. They have been deceived by the evil one to do his bidding, and destroy God's chosen people.

Isaiah 17:1 predicts the complete annihilation of Damascus, one of the longest continually inhabited cities on the earth. Since it has never suffered attack of this sort historically, we know this prophecy for its demise is in the future. And with the Muslim strongholds, its Muslim presidency and the threats it is now making on Israel, we see it appears to be fulfilled in the near future. Verse 14 of this chapter goes on to tell us:
14 At evening time, behold, there is terror! Before morning they are no more. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us And the lot of those who pillage us.

Scripture tells us that it is going to happen very quickly, and never before in history was it possible that such an attack could be made so quickly. In the ancient Roman empire, when cities were beseiged, the invading armies would build seige works and erect them against the city, and it would take months to capture a city and take its citizens captive or into exile. But now, through the technology and weapons man has developed, a large city can be largely or entirely destroyed overnight. With the surrounding circumstances, it makes the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy entirely possible at any moment.

Another reason that this is a big deal is that this will set the stage for the battle of Magog, where Russia descends, partnered with Iran and other Muslim nations named in Ezek. 38. The rapture of God's church is not dependent on any sign, but shortly after the battle of Magog, the LORD is going to return his work to the nation of Israel, where they will enter their 70th shabua prophesied in Dan. 9:27. This is also the seven-year treaty of the one known as the psudo-Christ, the world teacher pronounced, awaited and heralded by the new age movement.

As these events quickly unfold before us, we know that the time is short. Satan and his legions are working feverishly to deceive the masses, and to divide and deceive the Church. Time is short, and if you have never sought forgiveness for your sins, and trusted Christ as your Lord and Savior, do so now, and begin to read God's word, and obey what God tells you through it. (Rom 3:23, 6:23, 10:9-10).

The real gay agenda is on your tv and movie screens

Part 2 of an exclusive interview with Pastor Joe Schimmel of Blessed Hope Chapel in Simi Valley, CA

Shofarsound: There’s hardly a TV show now that doesnt have a “well adjusted” homosexual character. Is this intentional?

Pastor Joe: That’s a great question. Tragically, almost anything that is treated favorably by Hollywood and mass media becomes infectious and catches on, even if it is deadly. Humans are very impressionable and easily led by the liberal media. Television shows and movies have been a powerful weapon in Satan’s arsenal to erode godly morals among the American populace.

Oprah Winfrey, who influences millions, promoted homosexuality when she made a cameo appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ “Coming Out” Episode. Since Oprah claims to be a Christian when in fact she is a new ager, she has duped God only knows how many biblically uninformed Christians on the issue.

Television shows that promote homosexuality are too numerous to list, but in the last couple of years shows like “Degrassi,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Glee” are at the top of the list, when it comes to glamorizing the sin of homosexuality. Many of these TV shows receive awards from the homosexual organization GLAAD for their promotion of homosexual lifestyles. Wise parents will protect their children from being enticed by programming that is intended to program their little ones with gay propaganda.

In “The Overhauling of Straight America,” authors Kirk and Erastes Pill, advocate this strategy to propagate the gay agenda:

“Where we talk is important. The visual media, film and television, are plainly the most powerful image-makers in Western civilization. The average American household watches over seven hours of TV daily. Those hours open up a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed … So far, gay Hollywood has provided our best covert weapon in the battle to desensitize the mainstream” (Marshall K. Kirk and Erastes Pill, “The Overhauling of Straight America.” Guide Magazine, October and November 1987 [emphasis added].

Consider the following revealing stratagem from a popular manual, advocating homosexual propaganda, by Harvard trained gay activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen:

“… Famous historical figures are especially useful to us for two reasons: first, they are invariably dead as a doornail, hence in no position to deny the truth and sue for libel. Second, and more serious, the virtues and accomplishments that make these historic gay figures admirable cannot be gainsaid or dismissed by the public, since high school history textbooks have already set them in incontrovertible cement. By casting its violet spotlight on such revered heroes, in no time a skillful media campaign could have the gay community looking like the veritable fairy godmother to Western civilization” (Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, After the Ball).

We can look at just two of the top movies that came out in the month of June 2011 to see how this propaganda works. The latest X-Men movie (X-Men: First Class) was number one at the box office and very few of the millions who viewed it, knew that they were being indoctrinated by a subversive gay propaganda film.

X-men films develop the theme of various X-men discovering their superpowers, as they struggle with their various mutations and societies reluctance to accept their “coming out,” with their superpowers. Unbelievably, some behind the X-Men movies want their audience to see X-Men as superheroes “coming out,” as analogous to gays coming out of the closet, and their superpowers, as analogous to homosexual lifestyles.

Gay X-Men screenwriter Dan Harris, who wrote the screenplay for X2 with gay screenwriter Michael Dougherty, admitted that he sees X-Men mutancy, and the X-Men’s struggle for acceptance in society, as corresponding to homosexuality:

“…. it’s become more a metaphor for sexual identity and orientation because it’s more appropriate to look at a person and have to say, ‘Are you a mutant?’…. you can’t always look at a person and know that they’re a mutant just like you can’t look at a person and know that they’re gay” ( critic Walter Chaw, X2).

Openly gay X-Men Director, Bryan Singer, has not only directed most of the X-Men movies but recruited openly gay activist actor Ian McKellen, to star as Magneto, by convincing him that mutants were comparable to struggling gays. McKellen stated “I think he expected that I was going to consider it a not posh-enough job,” but revealed that he was told that X-Men is really about Lesbain, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people. “I thought he was right,” says McKellen. “It’s not just a fantasy story. It’s a parable.” McKellen is a co-founder of the LGBT gay activist group Stonewall.
McKellen further stated “[The producers] will tell you one of the demographics that X-Men appeals to is young gays…. There are enough people in this world who think that the answer to the ‘problem’ of being gay is to be ‘cured’ of your abnormality.” Thus in McKellen’s mind, rather than view sex between two men as immoral behavior, why not portray it as positive genetic mutation, on the level of the fantastic powers of a superhero?

Homosexual William Earnest in his article “Making Gay Sense of X-Men,” admitted “Singer and his screenwriters equipped X-Men and X2 with the rhetorical stealth needed to fly below the gaydar of many critics and audience members.” [source]

In the latest X-Men installment, when an X-Men who works for the US military is asked how he got away with being discovered through the years, he replies “Well, they didn’t ask, and I didn’t tell.” An obvious reference to the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy regarding homosexuality in the U.S. military. Thus the line is drawn from this X-men’s superpower to homosexuality, and Hollywood has gone a step further than simply legitimizing what billions of people deem to be sinful and destructive behavior, to glorifying it as something to be coveted like a
cool superpower.

When we turn to Pirates of the Caribbean, which like X-Men, has been one of the most successful series of movies ever released, we see similar brainwashing. Johnny Depp admits that he read the book “Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition,” to prepare for his staring role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Famous Film Reviewer, Robert Ebert wrote: “Depp seems to be channeling a drunken drag queen with his eyeliner and the way he minces ashore and slurs his dialogue ever so insouciantly.” When Rolling Stone asked Depp about the “certain gay undercurrent” so obvious in his Jack Sparrow’s character, Depp responded:

“Well, there was a great book I read…. ‘Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition.’ A very interesting book. I wasn’t exactly going for that with the character. And Keith [Richards] is not flamboyant in his actions. Keith is pretty stealth. But with Jack, it was more that I liked the idea of being ambiguous, of taking this character and making everything a little bit…. questionable. Because women were thought to be bad luck on ships. And these pirates would go out for years at a time. So, you know, there is the possibility that one thing might lead to another. You’re lonely. You have an extra ration of rum. ‘Cabin boy!’” (Rolling Stone, July 2006, p. 50).

Sadly, millions of parents had no idea that Depp had inculcated aspects of a homosexual pirate into his character. Children who are enticed by this character, are led to believe that since Captain Jack is portrayed as a hero, that wearing eye shadow and acting effeminate is the stuff heroes are made of today, unable to always discern the difference between fact and fiction. Gay activist Darrell Risk, in his article “Are Homosexual’s Born That Way?” acknowledges the infectious nature of homosexuality, when young people are exposed to it:

“I have found that even many of my most unbiased straight friends grow skittish with my homosexual candor—say, kissing my mate—when their children are around. Underneath it all, they too understand that sexually free ideas are infectious and that, once introduced to the suggestion of same sex love, their kids might just try it and like it” (Darrell Risk, ‘Born?’ p. 424).

In light of Darrell Risk’s admission that his own public sexual expression has the power to “infect” children who witness it, how much more are the purposely-seductive characters of Jack Sparrow, the X-Men and other Hollywood caricatures and story lines, enticing and infecting millions of our children? Harry Hay, the founder of the gay liberation movement stated, Everyone, even heterosexual people, all have the potential to have that fairy spirit.”

Perhaps no movie has been quite as successful in propagating homosexuality as natural and normative as Brokeback Mountain. To get an understanding of how this movie manipulated the public we can look at a piece of propaganda created out of thin air by the father of the sexual revolution here in America, Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey was exposed for fabricating bogus numbers, when he claimed that 10 percent of Americans are homosexual. Subsequent studies revealed that the truth ended up being between two and three percent. Kinsey was found to have inflated his statistics by interviewing large numbers of prison inmates and prostitutes.

Kinsey also made bogus claim that a disproportionate number of cowboys, who ride their horses in the open range, are in fact gay and hook up with each other to have homosexual encounters. Kinsey never showed any study that would suggest such was the case. I mention this because Kinsey was trying to get America away from the effeminate stereotype of homosexuals that repulsed so many people. Kinsey sought to cast homosexuals as real men. What Kinsey may have done though, was take a page from a Marlboro cigarettes advertising campaign that popularized Marlboro among men just a few years earlier than Kinsey’s wild assertion.

Since 1924, Marlboro was marketed to women, as they were originally designed with a red band around the filter to hide lipstick and advertised as “Mild As May.” In the 1950’s, after cigarettes were proven to cause cancer, Phillip Morris wanted to attract men to his filtered cigarettes, men who would never use filters in the past. How could he get men to smoke what was previously billed a women’s cigarette? Simple: reposition Marlboro as a man’s cigarette by placing it in the mouth of a rugged cowboy. This cowboy, depicted on thousands of billboards nation wide, came to be known as the Marlboro Man. In a matter of months Marlboro went from a market share of less than less one percent to one of the best selling brands in the United States!

Ironically, even though homosexuality is often more deadly than smoking, Hollywood, like Kinsey, sought to make homosexuality acceptable by using a page out of Phillip Morris’ playbook. The licentious movie Brokeback Mountain, recast homosexuality as a lifestyle akin to a healthy masculine cowboy. Kinsey would have been proud!

Shofarsound: Can you give a little more detail on Michael Swift’s comments in the Gay Community News that you mention in your CD expose’ Satanism and Homosexual Agenda?
Pastor Joe: Homosexual activist Michael Swift flaunted gay aspirations in the Gay Community News piece entitled “Gay Revolutionary” as he envisioned a gay utopia:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and

vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools…. in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms…wherever men are men together. Your sons will become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us” [Michael Swift, Gay Community News, 15 February 1987].

What I find chilling, is that while some of Swift’s statements in the piece are somewhat satirical and inflammatory, is that many of the things he articulates as gay aspirations, with regard to our children, are already happening in our “youth groups…. movie theater’s [and] bathrooms” every day.
GCMW Note: Homosexual activists claim the Swift peice was only intended to be taken as “satire”.

Shofarsound: So can we assume that Swift’s revisioning of America under a homosexual rule is coming true?

Pastor Joe: My comments on the question you asked earlier about the media and Hollywood, reveal that they are indeed seeking to “recast” our children in their “image,” as Swift states. Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen detail a three-stage plan to homosexualize America in their book, After the Ball. They describe the plan to further the gay agenda and homosexualize America as a threefold plan, “desensitize, jam, and convert.”

The first stage is to desensitize by inundating the public with a “continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible.” They go on to say, “The main thing is to talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome . . . If you can get [straights] to think [homosexuality] is just another thing—meriting no more than a shrug of the shoulders—then your battle for legal and societal rights is virtually won.” The second stage, “Jamming,” is described as “psychological terrorism meant to silence expression or even support for dissenting opinion.” The third stage is “Conversion” and they define it as the “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media” (Selling Homosexuality to America,” Regent Law Review, Volume 14, Number 2, Spring, 2002, available at

A Call Forward for Salem

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6a

Every Pastor and Counselor knows that every story has two sides. “The first to plead his case seems right till someone comes to examine him” (Pr. 18:17). During this trial at Salem Baptist, charges were laid against the pastor on Sunday night.

As Southern Baptists, we take pride in believing we follow the Bible, and claiming its total authority for life. But we do not practice what we preach. We know that God is completely sovereign, and that the Lord brought pastor Joe here, and has brought me here to serve alongside him as a co-pastor. With charges being laid, they need to be examined and answered with truth.

We need to be careful in laying charges against God’s anointed. Korah did so, and was enraged at Moses for “making himself more holy” than the rest of the Jews (Num. 16:1-2). Korah, in his arrogance claimed to be as holy as Moses (v. 3ff). God threatened to wipe out all the Jews and begin again with Moses (v. 21), but afte Moses and Aaron interceded for the people, God had mercy and only destroyed Korah, Dathan and Abiram (vv. 31-33)

We need to be careful we do not find ourselves fighting against the Lord Christ. So as a body of believers, we need to seek peace (reconciliation) with one another (Rom. 14:19), and make sure we are following the Lord Jesus’ will for Salem Baptist (Matt. 5:16; Rom 8:29-30; Phil. 3:7-11).

The purpose for the existence of the Church is not to do ministry the way we think it should be done, or for our desires, or according to the latest church growth paradigm, but for the glorification of Christ, and the upbuilding of the body of Christ, into conformity with Him who is its head (Rom. 8:28-30; 1 Cor 14:12).

It should serve as no surprise to us that demonic forces should try to divide the church in these last days we are living in (1 Ptr. 4:12-13, 5:8-9). He already knows the time for his emergence is near, and his time is short (Rev. 12:12).

So in these times of trial, what should our perspective be? We should be seeing and understanding this trial as an opportunity to know Christ better, and to let his light shine through us. It is during the hard times that the light of Christ shines the most brightly.

Monday morning, the LORD spoke to me as I was in his word. I was just praying and meditating on (actively thinking about) the situation. The Lord impressed upon me 1 Cor. 13:4-8, and you know, as the chapter starts out, Paul says, “If I speak the languages of men and of angels, but do not have love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith, so that I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing… if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

So that is the first mark of Christian character we should display is agape (God’s unconditional love). And agape never fails (v. 8).

Another passage comes to mind, Colossians 3:1-4, “So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. When the Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.”

Thank God that the mediation team is in place, and let us pray daily for them that God will give them understanding and wisdom, and that the purposes of God will prevail in this situation.

2 Corinthians 12:19 19 All this time you have been thinking that we are defending ourselves to you. Actually, it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and all for your upbuilding, beloved.

Turkey Struck after Striking Apple of God's Eye

The Bible teaches that Israel is the apple of God's eye (Zech. 2:8). 

Over the past few months, Turkey has been growing increasingly hostile to its Israeli neighbors, with whom they were on good terms.  This coincides with a simultaneous turning towards a more radical form of Islam, and a desire of Turkey's president Erdogan to reestablish the ancient Islamic Ottoman empire.  Turkey was struck Sunday with a 7.2 magnitude earthquake

Islam sees itself as having a divine mandate from Allah (600 years after the gospels were composed and the New Testament sealed) to spread/enforce through jihad an Islamic Caliphate worldwide.  But as Turkey grows in solidarity with the Muslim nations that are surrounding Israel, they overlook the promise that Yaweh God made to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

We know that all in the world who believe are blessed in Jesus Christ, through the covenant promise first made to Eve, traced down through Abraham, and on through Isaac and Jacob (Jn 3:16-17).  As tensions mount int he Middle East, and Israel is continually made the scapegoat of the nations' problems, we can expect things to get worse in the Middle East, and soon culminating in a battle spelled out in Is. 17:1 and Psalm 83.

And as these conditions develop in the Middle East, the power and extent of the one-world government continues to extend.  The one-world government is here now, they are merely waiting for the right opportunity to impose it over the world's citizens.  Will it occur through the rapture occurring, which would lead to a global financial collapse?  If it were, military law would be imposed and the new methods of identification and tracking would be enacted for the "safety" of the world's citizens. 

The battle of Psalm 83 being fulfilled, would enlarge Israel's borders, and allow her the building of her temple, and the official reinstatement of the Old Covenant sacrificial religion.  This will set the stage for the battle of Magog, where God Himself will fight for Israel supernaturally (Ezek. 38:19,22).

Should we be concerned for the peoples in the Middle East, certainly, and we should pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Ps. 122:6), and support them as we are able, as responsible citizens.  But we should not live in fear or be in dread of the things coming upon the earth.  If we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and seek to live our lives to His glory, then we should live in joy and expectation (Mt. 24:33).

Harold Camping again predicts End of The World

Calif. group again predicts end of world Friday

This should not surprise us.  But what we need to do is to look at what the Bible says about when the End of the World is going to happen.  And I think with the reporting done on the H. Camping predictions, there has been some confusion to the Biblical teachings.

Camping is claiming to have found out through mathematical equations, supposedly given in the letters of scripture, the timing of the rapture.  The "Catching Away" of the saints, and the literal end of the world are two separate events.  In fact, the rapture, or "catching away" of the saints (1 Thess. 4:15-17) seems to almost immediately precede the revealing of the man of lawlessness, better known as the Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:7).

If 2 Thess. 2:7 is indeed referring to the Holy Spirit in the presence of the Church, (1 Thess. 4:15-17) then the rapture would merely begin the 70th shabua (or "week") in Dan. 9:26-27.  And scripture seems to indicate that there would be a time of peace for the first three and a half years, and then the man (the Maitreya/ Mahdi?) heading up the one world government in the "new age" would take his seat in the Jewish temple, which is waiting to be rebuilt now, and demand universal worship to himself as God, but we know he is only a god for a brief time (Rev. 13:1-10; 19:19-20). 

But if the timing of the rapture were something to be known, why wouldn't God spell that out clearly, like the rest of it the last days events?  All we know of the rapture is that nothing in scripture dictates precisely when it will occur.  It could happen today.  It could happen two years from now, so it is imminent.

After the taking of the church, the world will remain, and scripture teaches the man of lawlessness will remain seven more years before the coming of the Messiah, our Lord Jesus (Dan. 9:27, 7:18).  This begins the time of the outpouring of the wrath of El Elyon (God Most High) upon the earth.  People will come to Christ in this time, though it will require their life, and possibly their head (Rev. 20:4).

The real indicator of when the "end of the world" will be is the signing of the 7-year peace treaty by a world leader, who is regarded by humanity as a 'savior'.  Then you know there will be seven more years before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But even that is not the end, for in Isaiah 65:20, a passage by many thought to be speaking of the state of the world under the millennial reign of Christ, it states that those who die at 100 will be considered accursed (a sinner).  So some unbelievers will live to see Christ come down from heaven, establish his rule from Zion (yes, Jesus is a Zionist!) Zech. 14:9.  So during the one thousand year reign of Christ, sinners will have the opportunity to know Christ as their Savior, but even then, not all will.

Revelation gives us a glimpse that at the end of the thousand year reign, Satan, our enemy, is going to be released from the abyss, and he will come out to deceive the nations once more, and lead them in a battle to make war on the Messiah (Rev. 20:7-10) and His people.  But they will again, be quickly defeated, and the great judgment will take place, and then God will renew the heavens and the earth (Rev. 21:5), and His dwelling will be among men (Rev. 21:2-3), and so we will dwell with God forever more.

He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming quickly.'  Amen, Come, Lord Jesus.  Rev. 22:20

The 'Third Way' Bubbles Are Bursting

This article spells it out like I've always said it, capitalism hasn't failed...

The 'Third Way' Bubbles Are Bursting

In his article, Robert Trasinski concludes:

I'm beginning to suspect that the credit "bubble" is one of the hallmarks of such a system. It reflects the hybrid nature of the system. It is a system that still has property rights, private savings, financial markets, and ambitious individuals exuberantly reacting to price signals in a frenzy of activity. But behind that is the "management" of government, which serves to distort those price signals and misdirect trillions of dollars of private economic activity. The government decides that housing, for example, or "green energy" is an industry to be supported with cheap credit, loan guarantees, and subsidies, making it seem artificially profitable and leading investors to pour more money into these activities than the economy can actually support over the long run.

Or European governments decide that Greece should be allowed, through the mechanism of the Eurozone, to issue its debt at the same low interest rates as Germany. And then they decide, when the financial crisis hits in 2008, that European banks should increase their reserves by loading up on the "safe" debt of European governments. Or in China, the corrupt incentives driving government officials--who don't need to fear the scrutiny of a free press or the accountability of free elections--encourages unsustainable borrowing and out-of-control real-estate speculation. All of these bubbles are bursting or are about to be burst.

Mohler on Mormonism, Democracy and the need for Evangelical Thinking

As a nice followup to my recent blog dealing with Mormonism, and the issue of whether or not it is Christian, my former seminary president Albert Mohler addressess the issue in a very clear, thoughtful manner where he lists the issues at stake and gives a short, concise history of the Latter Day Saints to show it is another religion, and gives Evangelicals insight on voting.

Is a Mormon Christian?... What is the Gospel?

Our country is in a theological muddle.  Lately, as I'm sure you've seen, we've got many public leaders, including those who call the name, "Evangelical" that Mormons are Christian, and many groups and many people claim to be Christian.  How can one determine whether these people or groups are truly Christian?  Don't they believe in Jesus too?  One famous Mormon claims to have been "born again" when Jesus became his Lord and Savior.  It sounds very Christian.

To determine whether some one or group is Christian, we must go to the original source that defines what being a Christian is.  That is the holy Bible.  Jesus taught his followers, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father, except through Me"  (Jn 14:6).  The doctor Luke tells us in Acts, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). 

And in fact, Mormons, and other groups I'm sure, will confess this truth also.  So what sets apart the orthodox, Evangelical Christian?  This is where we examine the presuppositional ideas and understanding of the parties in question.

First off, what does the Bible teach?  Now the answer to this question could make up a semester long seminary course.  Clearly, there is not space for this, so we will narrow the question to the most important figure, and conerstone of the Christian faith: Jesus of Nazareth (Mt. 2:23).  Jesus, the Bible teaches, is the only begotten Son of the Living God (Jn. 3:16, 20:31; 1 Cor. 1:9; 1 Jn. 1:3), that he is equal, co-eternal with God the Father. (Rom 1:3-4; Rev 1:7-8, 22:13), and that He was born of the Holy Spirit (Is. 7:14; Lk. 1:35).  Jesus Christ, through his death and suffering of crucifixion on the cross, would be the propitiation (atoning sacrifice) of our sins, and provide justification for the many (Ps. 22:16; Is. 53:5-11; Jn. 1:29; Mt. 26:2; Jn. 13:1).  The scriptures teach, as cited above, that salvation is through faith only in his name, by grace (Eph. 2:8,9; Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12).  After the sending of the Holy Spirit, at the Jewish feast of Pentecost (instituted in Lev. 23), who inspired the apostles in the writing of the New Testament, the Bible teaches revelation was sealed, finito (Heb. 1:2).

The Mormon faith teaches that Jesus is the spiritual firstborn son of God, and spirit brother to every other human and angel (including Satan/Lucifer).  Since Mormons do not believe in the Trinity as claimed by the Biblical faith, Mormonism teaches that God the Father came down and had sex with the virgin Mary to impregnate her with Jesus.  It teaches that life on earth is a school or test, if you will, for the spirit children of God to attain to their own state of god-hood.  Yes, the goal of Mormons is to be god, of their own planet with their own spirit children (born of their goddess wife/wives).  "As man is, God once was. As God is, man can become."

Mormons believe do not hold that revelation was closed with the person of Jesus Christ.  They believe in a progressive revelation, as do the New Apostolic Reformation, of which Gov. Perry joined with in organizing and facilitating The Response fasting and prayer rally.  And Mormons, as the NAR prophets and pastors, believe in the mandate of "taking back" America in the name of their religion.

The Mormons have a "white horse" prophecy of the nation being rescued by a Mormon coming to office as president and restoring the nation, with all the people apologizing and giving gratitude to the Mormons for rescuing the nation, and restoring us to our "divinely-inspired" US Consitution.  The Bible teaches that the world will come under the control of a one-world leader, a one-world government (Dan. 7:23) which will be under his control for seven years (Dan. 9:27), but then the Messiah will return to set up his rightful rule, for one thousand years (Zech 14:9), before Satan is let loose again to deceive the nations (Rev. 20:7,8).  Then the world will be destroyed by fire (2 Ptr. 3:7) and the great judgment, and then all things will be made new.  After this, the redeemed, those who were born-again will live upon earth with God and serve the LORD and live in a paradise forevermore (Rev. 21:1, 5).

The holy Bible teaches that salvation is "by grace, through faith, and that not of yourselves.  It is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph 2:8,9).  The Mormon book of 2 Nephi states "for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do."  2 Nephi 25:23 sounds very close to what the Bible teaches, but adds a almost subtle difference, "after all we can do."  That changes the whole game and puts Mormonism into the category of salvation-by-works, like every other world religion except for Christianity, which states, "it is the gift of God, not of works, lest no man should boast."

One well known so-called evangelical (or wolf in sheep's clothing) leader recently said that Mitt Romney is an "outstanding Christian."  Really?  Doesn't that fly in the face of what the Bible says of the elect?  How could an "outstanding" evangelical leader make such an error?  The apostle Paul, former murderer and persecutor of the church, wrote: "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, were to preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, let him be anathema (eternally accursed)" Gal. 1:8. 

Clearly Joseph Smith didn't have this verse in mind when the angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14) appeared to him and taught him the "true" gospel.

Good Fight Ministries - Heath Ledger

Good Fight Ministries - Heath Ledger

Ever wonder about Heath Ledger, what made him such an edgy actor? Goodfight ministries goes into alot of the oppression and darkness that plagued him in his last days and at his death shortly after playing the role of the Joker in the Dark Knight. And not only that, but he also touches on some of the other celebrities, and the spiritual "advantage" this gives them in acting.

In one paragraph, Goodfight states:
Few people realize the dark spiritual side of acting going all the way back to the Greek theater. The best actors in Greek theater were believed to be literally possessed by the entities they sought to portray on stage. Many occultists, like Aleister Crowley, taught that acting and assuming the role of a particular demon was the fastest way to come into contact with a demonic entity. Many actors and actresses have credited their success to possession by a spirit entity. Robin Williams claimed that when acting he becomes possessed, and that in the past they would have burned him as a witch. New Ager, Shirley McClain, has also admitted spirit possession when acting. Matrix star, Keanu Reeves, states that he attempts to connect with his muse and goes on what he refers to as “demon rides” when acting. Johnny Depp has claimed that he is possessed with a multitude of demons and Denzel Washington claims that he is able to put out such great performances because he gets on his knees and calls on spirits to possess his body and empower him to play a given role. Oprah Winfrey has claimed that she lights candles and then petitions spirits to possess her so that she can better perform as well. “I tried to empty myself and let the spirit of Sethe inhabit me,” admits Winfrey. Director, Jonathon Demme, who directed the movie Beloved, said of Winfrey's performance, “Oprah had explained to me when we originally met that it was her goal and intention to channel the spirit of Margaret Garner...This very infusion of humanity past accounts to a significant degree for Oprah's stunning alchemy, her astonishing abandonment of self in her Beloved performance.”

Is Damascus Closer to Annihilation?

Joel Rosenberg, messianic Jew and commentator and author on the Middle East, reports on his blog

Further evidence that Israel is facing a “gathering storm” in the Middle East came Tuesday as the dictator of Damascus made one of his most serious threats to date against the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Excerpt from Ynet News: ”Syrian President Bashar Assad on Tuesday threatened to set fire to the Middle East, and especially to Israel, if NATO attacks Syria, the Iranian Fars news agency reported. In a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Assad said: ‘If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.’….According to the Fars news agency, the Syrian president stressed that Damascus will also call on Hezbollah in Lebanon to launch a fierce rocket and missile attack on Israel, one that Israeli intelligence could never imagine.” The Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz also reported the story.

The good news: the Jewish state is more secure at the moment than any other time in her 63-year modern history. The bad news: grave threats are rising from Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Turkey, Egypt and elsewhere in the region.

For students of Bible Prophecy, we have been watching Syria, as the devastation predicted in Isaiah 17:1 has yet to occur, and so many believe that scripture is to be fulfilled in the near future with events related to Israel, and the Messiah's return at the end of the 70th week (Dan. 9:27). 

It appears that tensions in Syria are escalating, and this "gentle eye-doctor" running Syria is resorting to making threats, and fomenting Muslim rage against the chosen the land of Israel.  It appears that the pronouncements of this prophecy are coming to be more quickly as international pressure is applied to Syria, and Muslim leaders increasingly use Israel as their scapegoat.

And as Joel points out in his blog, the threats arising against Israel are increasing form all around her.  To our human eyes this indeed looks like a grave situation for Israel, indeed.  It appears that the Muslim goal of wiping Israel off the map is about to be accomplished.  But the scriptures tell us a different story. 

Ps. 83 tells of a coming war with all Israel's surrounding enemies.  And the psalm ends with a cry for justice to Yahweh to destroy the enemies as the LORD has done in past battles (Ps. 83:9-12). 

2 For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves. 3 They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones. 4 They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more." 5 For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant:
Psalm 83:2-5

This fits the situation of Israel and the Middle East perfectly, as does Isaiah 19 with all that has been developing in Egypt.  And as God's word has been fulfilled perfectly and will be till the end (Matt. 5:18), we should heed its foreboding warning with great sobriety.  As the crisis develops in the Middle East, and with the State of Israel, it seems Syria gets further entangled in the situation.  Its' leaders should give heed to the word of the Most High:

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. "Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city And will become a fallen ruin.
