Verse of The Day
Ezekiel 36:1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD: (9) For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: (10) And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded: (11) And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Commentary
On March 17, 461 St. Patrick died. He was not Irish, but was used of God to break the hold of paganism over Ireland. He had been held as a slave in Ireland, but he escaped and came back as an evangelist. He personally baptized over 120,000 and started 300 churches. His legend is that he had a confrontation with druid priests, which was watched by the kings of Ireland. As the priest came near to kill him, they burst into flames. Many kings turned to Christianity at this event, but it opened the doors for him to travel freely across Ireland. At the confrontation with the priests, Patrick used his breastplate or prayer as his weapon. A part of it follows:
Christ with me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me, Christ within me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ at my right, Christ at my left,
Christ in the fort,
Christ in the chariot seat,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I am 100 percent Irish, John Patrick McTernan, so I could not resist using green!
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Israel and the Middle East War
“The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is accusing Israel of risking “religious war” by rededicating a restored 300-year-old synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City.”
Islam is directly threatened by this synagogue being rebuilt in the Old City. Islam is a fragile religion and is easily threatened. It is the size and height of this synagogue which is so threatening, as it rivals the al-Aksa mosque. It looks the fuse is now lit for the war described by the Prophet Obadiah. It is going to start at Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
     Recent Fighting -Jerusalem
“The Obama administration’s row with Israel over settlements has prompted some analysts to wonder whether it seeks “regime change,” a new government that can make peace with the Palestinians. However, the analysts doubt that President Barack Obama’s administration, which has made Arab-Israeli peace a national security priority, will achieve anything if it has indeed adopted such a strategy.”
If Obama tries to destabilize the Israeli government, according to Obadiah 1:15 this is exactly what is going to happen to his Presidency!
     Recent Fighting-Hebron
“So why does the State Department object to Jews moving into homes in East Jerusalem, homes they legally and legitimately own? One answer may be that the State Department plans to force Israel to turn East Jerusalem over to some future Palestinian terror state, and that will be harder to do if East Jerusalem is filled up with Jews. But that is precisely the reason why Israel should build housing in East Jerusalem. Israel’s position should be simply that if the Arab world refuses to come to terms and make peace with an Israel controlling all of Jerusalem, then we do not believe that they will come to terms or make peace with any Israel that has relinquished Jerusalem either. The Arabs can threaten Israel all they want about the dire consequences if Israel refuses to turn Jerusalem over to them. Israel’s response should be, “You can’t have it, period.”

Verse of The Day
Luke 21:24  And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Commentary  
 Events are happening at a quickening pace over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. This is about to explode into World War 3. Obama’s pressure on Israel is a signal to the Muslims that Israel is alone and can be attacked. Obama’s actions are encouraging the Muslims to start an intifada! I don’t think this can be stopped. Jerusalem is ground zero for bible prophecy and the Temple Mount is the ‘Bulls Eye.” These events indicate that HUGE things are about to happen. The God of Israel is arising and all hell is now stirring. The United States is right in the middle of these events led by our Hard Leftist President who is void of understanding the Bible. 
America is now ripe for judgment. If you pray and intercede, now is the time.
Rebuilt Synagogue Is Caught in Disputes Over Jerusalem 03/16/10 The Muslims are upset because the Hurva Synagogue was dedicated yesterday. This is dangerous to them because it is higher than the Al Aksa mosque which is an indication to them that Judaism is trying to be superior to Islam. They see this as the beginning of Judaism sovereignty over the Temple Mount. They cannot allow this as it means the God of Israel is greater than allah. This is why they say things like this synagogue means the destruction of the Al Aksa mosque!
“The synagogue’s new white dome blends in with the city’s ancient monuments holy to Christians, Muslims and Jews. Because of the topography, seen from certain points around the city, it rises above the Islamic shrines of the compound revered by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, and by Jews as the Temple Mount, including Al Aksa Mosque.In Damascus, Khaled Meshal, the exiled leader of the Islamic militant group Hamas, said the synagogue’s dedication signified “the destruction of the Al Aksa Mosque and the building of the temple,” according to Agence France-Presse.”
“The day dubbed “the day of rage” by Hamas and extremist Islamic groups opened with riots – both in the holy city and on the way to it. Hundreds of Arabs burned tires and hurled stones at Border Guard officers at several locations throughout the city Tuesday morning. At least three officers and 11 rioters were lightly injured, and eight were detained. Meanwhile, in the North, a bus full of Muslim passengers on their way to al-Aqsa Mosque was stopped and turned back. Police said the bus was inspected following tip-offs of possible plans to riot in Jerusalem.”
“Potential for flare-up in Jerusalem. Police reject rightists’ request to hold cornerstone ceremony at Temple Mount. Fatah official in charge of Jerusalem portfolio urges Muslims to flock to al-Aqsa Mosque, barricade themselves there for fear of invasion.”
I can really only focus on Israel right now as so much is happening so fast. There are lots of events with Islam and homosexuality, but I have to put it off for now.
Please make sure to view my section on “As America Has Done to Israel”. I will include this as I find the links between what America is doing to Israel and what is happening to America. The first one involves the economy is MIND BOGGLING!
Stay focused on the Lord Jesus as God is about to move in a nighty way. All the powerful earthquakes indicate the big ones found in Revelation 16 and Ezekiel 38 are on the way.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Israel and The Middle East War
“A U.S. envoy’s postponement of his Mideast trip appeared Tuesday to deepen one of the worst U.S.-Israeli feuds in memory — even as Israel’s foreign minister signaled his government had no intention of curtailing the contentious construction at the heart of the row.”
***As America Has Done To Israel***
***Construction Unemployment Rate Hits 27.1% as Another 64,000 Construction Workers Lost Jobs in February 2010 03/10/10 The idea for this connection was given to me by a reader of this blog. The American policy toward Israel is to prevent the building of homes in the West Bank. The Obama regime has been forceful with Israel about this. At the same time the American building industry collapsed! Israel cannot build on the covenant land, then Americans cannot build homes on their land! What America does to Israel comes right back to America. This is a huge part of crushing the American economy.
“The construction unemployment rate jumped to 27.1% and construction employment dropped to a 14-year low as another 64,000 construction workers lost jobs in February, according to federal employment figures released recently.”

Verse of The Day
Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
Commentary
It appears that Jerusalem is going to be the stumbling block for America. Prime Minister Netanyahu is not backing down and will go ahead with the building. Jerusalem construction will go on’ 03/15/10 
“While the United States continued to criticize Israel over an east Jerusalem housing project approved during US Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel least week, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday said construction in the capital would continue as usual. “Construction in Jerusalem will continue in any part of the city as it has during the last 42 years,” Netanyahu stressed at the Likud faction meeting.”
What is Obama going to do now? I fell like the life of America is in the balance. This is high stakes drama at the very highest level. America with a hard core, Hard Leftist is challenging Israel over Jerusalem. Please remember March 8,9, 2010 because I believe these were the dates America crossed the red line with homosexual “marriage” and Jerusalem. I fully expect what Obama does to Israel is coming to America.
China is now become belligerent towards the United States. Is China’s Politburo spoiling for a showdown with America? 03/14/10  Maybe China will now bully the United States as it holds trillions in our debt. America bullies Israel and at the same time the US heads into a conflict with China“The long-simmering clash between the world’s two great powers is coming to a head, with dangerous implications for the international system.” 
China PLA officer urges challenging U.S. dominance 02/28/10 “The call for China to abandon modesty about its global goals and “sprint to become world number one” comes from a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Senior Colonel, Liu Mingfu, who warns that his nation’s ascent will alarm Washington, risking war despite Beijing’s hopes for a “peaceful rise.”
In the past, I wrote many times about the Mexican drug cartels could be America’s Palestinian terrorists. There was a direct connection between America pressuring Israel and tension on the border. For a long time, events along the Mexican border were relatively quiet. Just as the Palestinians are rising up over the Temple Mount, so tensions are really rising on the border.

2 Americans Killed in Drive-By Shooting in Mexico 03/14/10

If fighting breaks out in Israel, it is very possible that fighting can erupt along the Mexican border and in US cities where the Mexican drug gangs are.
I did call the President’s line and spoke with an operator about Obama and Israel. The number is 202 456-1414. I was on hold for a long time, but I did get through.
It is time for prayer and fasting.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Israel and the Middle East War
“Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, has told the country’s diplomats there that U.S.-Israeli relations face their worst crisis in 35 years, despite attempts by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office to project a sense of “business as usual.”

Zechariah 12:2 
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. (3) And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Commentary
 The rift is widening between the United States and Israel and the cause is Jerusalem! This city has become a burdensome stone for America just like the Bible states would happen. It is going to be burdensome for all nations and right now it is hung around the neck of the United States. Obama wants to divide Jerusalem and make it the capital of a Palestinian state, and he is furious that Israel continues to build homes in East Jerusalem. 
It is very, very clear that Obama is going to try and break Israel over Jerusalem. What are the Israelis going to do? I think they are not going to give in and divide Jerusalem. Just like the Bible so clearly states, this city is the very issue the nations are going to focus on.
The time is very short for America, because the more Obama pressures Israel to divide Jerusalem, the faster and more severe the judgment on America. Obama wants the talks started this summer, so it appears this summer is going to see awesome judgment on America.
Obama lets Iran slide developing nuclear weapons and condemns Israel over Jerusalem!
I sense that very soon we are going to have to stand with Israel against Obama and his pressure against Israel. This is no time to sit on our hands ,as it is an honor to stand for the Holy God of Israel’s prophetic word. This is coming very fast, so be prepared spiritually and mentally for what is coming.

Verse of The Day 
Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. 
Commentary
On Monday of this week, Washington, DC “married” homosexuals, on Tuesday diplomatic relations between the United States and Israel were destroyed. This was an awesome week for the United States  in its standing before the Holy God of Israel. In my heart of hearts, I believe America has crossed a red line with God. 
The American government is determined to create a Palestinian state and divide Jerusalem. God has warned and warned what is going to happen when America attempts to do this. It appears that the big push is coming this summer. America is out of time with the Holy God of Israel. Judgment on the nation is at the door.

Hillary Clinton rebukes Israel 03/13/10 This is an excellent article.

“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday delivered a stinging rebuke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his government’s announcement this week of new Jewish housing in east Jerusalem, calling it “a deeply negative signal” for the Mideast peace process and ties with the U.S.
The State Department said Clinton spoke to Netanyahu by phone for 43 minutes to vent U.S. frustration with Tuesday’s announcement that cast a pall over a visit to Israel by Vice President Joe Biden and endangered indirect peace talks with the Palestinians that the Obama administration had announced just a day earlier.”
I have been watching Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. It is getting more tense by the week. Major fighting could break out at any time. This is ground zero right now for Bible prophecy. When you have this type of tension and upheaval over Jerusalem, awesome events cannot be far away. Arabs riot in West Bank, Jerusalem 03/13/10 I really do think the fuse to Armageddon is going to be lit over Jerusalem and not Iranian nuclear weapons. The rioting is now low grade but it has been continuous and it could be the very trigger to Armageddon!
“Arab teens riot when prevented access to Temple Mount, Palestinians throw firebomb at checkpoint.”
Israeli troops, Palestinians clash near Jerusalem 03/13/10
 The military situation is beyond the point of no return. This war is going to be vicious and lead to the total destruction of the Palestinians as described by the Prophet Obadiah. It is going to be a fight to the finish. The Palestinians are trying to kill all the Jews and wipe the name of Israel off the map. The Palestinians are ALL going to be killed or driven off the land and the name of Palestine will disappear. What the Palestinians are trying to do to Israel is going to happen to them. Aviation Week: Hamas, Hizbullah May Push Israel to War 03/12/10 This is an excellent article showing the military situation with Hamas, Hezbollah and Israel. The war is ever so close.
God is warning His church what is about to happen. I hope you are listening. On the other side of this war, you will not recognize the United States. America has now crossed ALL the red lines with the God of Israel. For the most part, the church is fast asleep and refuses to believe in God’s judgment. The sodomites are now being “married” in Washington and the church hardly yawned. The LORD has warned and warned but just like ancient Israel, the modern American church is unable to understand God’s holiness and refuses to believe in judgment. How sad this is.
Please grow closer and closer to the Lord Jesus with your eyes glued on His coming for the church. The Blessed Hope will give you the strength to face anything that happens.

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

“The European Union might use its trade ties with Israel as leverage to pressure it into renewing peace talks with the Palestinians, Catherine Ashton, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy at the EU said on Saturday.”

Verse of The Day
Psalm 11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. (3) If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Commentary
This was a very bad week for the United States with the Holy God of Israel. This week has really left me with a heavy heart. I really do sense the nation crossed a red line with the Holy God of Israel.
Monday started off with homosexuals being “officially married” in Washington, DC. I watched some sort of a minister “marry” two women. This is a direct assault on God’s holiness. There was nothing about this from the church. The politicians acted like nothing happened. The Holy God of Israel is sure aware of what happened.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Then the next day, Vice President Biden was in Israel. On this day, Israel announced that it was building 1600 housing units in East Jerusalem. Biden was visibly angry and confronted Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu about this. Biden claimed this was a roadblock to peace etc.
I look at this incident as a major breach between the United States and Israel. I can never remember such an ugly incident between the nations. It appears that Israel is distancing itself from America. The United States continues to allow Iran to build nuclear weapons and at the same time is preventing Israel from attacking Iran. The US wants Jerusalem divided into a Palestinian state and this is why Biden was so upset with the housing units. It appears that Israel was telling the US that Jerusalem is not going to be divided!
Later, Biden gave a speech that seemed to indicate all was well between Israel and America, but I don’t think so. From this incident over Jerusalem it is very clear that a major confrontation is brewing between the two nations over Jerusalem. Biden stated that the direct talks are to start this summer, so it is very possible that this confrontation will take place this summer.
Obama has not visited Israel which is very significant. Israel is one of our best allies, yet he failed to make a visit. He was in the Middle East and visited Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, but he stayed away from Israel. This all does not look good for America in dealing with Israel.
Keep looking to the Lord Jesus and His coming for the church.
Even if sodomites are marrying in DC, you can live in holiness before the LORD.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. (3) And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Only Jesus of Nazareth Can Be Israel's King Messiah

Only Jesus of Nazareth
Can Be Israel’s King Messiah
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
This book is the direct result of Judaism’s counter-missionaries challenging me over the gospel of Jesus of Nazareth. Literally, thousands of hours of research and study have gone into this book.  The information in this book has been tested by email and verbal debates with rabbis and Judaism’s counter-missionaries.  The majority of the teachings in this book have all come from the fires of debate, and  direct interaction  with people who have made it their life goal to disprove the gospel of the Lord Jesus.

There are three topics that together give absolute proof that only Jesus of Nazareth can be Israel’s King Messiah. The prophecy of Daniel shows that the end of King Messiah’s first coming had to take place in early 30 AD. Only Jesus of Nazareth meets this exact time requirement. Exclusively, Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled God’s covenant with David that His throne would last forever. And the genealogy of King Messiah, which is so clearly outlined in the Hebrew Scriptures, limits the candidates so that only Jesus of Nazareth can fulfill this requirement.
All three points of evidence make an airtight case that only Jesus of Nazareth can be Israel’s King Messiah The three issues of prophecy, the Davidic covenant and scriptural genealogy prove that only the Lord Jesus can be Israel’s King Messiah.
The Prophet Daniel gives the exact time frame for the coming of the Messiah. Daniel locks in the very year that the Messiah was going to present Himself to Israel. In fact, Daniel very clearly outlines King Messiah’s first and second coming.
The Davidic covenant as found in 2 Samuel 7 shows that King Messiah, who will reign on the throne of David forever, has to be the Son of God. The claim that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God is anchored right into the Davidic covenant and proven in Scripture.
The Messiah’s genealogical lineage is outlined in the Hebrew Scriptures. Anyone who claims to be Israel’s King Messiah must come from a very detailed and precise genealogy. This book brings the genealogy of the Old Testament alive. The begats are in the Bible for a reason!
The conclusion of all these three elements is that only Jesus of Nazareth can be Israel’s King Messiah. He alone possesses all the characteristics of God’s promise for the Messiah, the hope for Israel and the world.
This book will add great depth to your faith and is excellent as Sunday School text.
