    Things are happening so fast. Everything seems to pointing to the Psalm 83 war – with the formerly combatant factions of Islam now becoming confederate against their common enemy – Israel, and Israel’s God – the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.

    I used to have trouble seeing how the prophetic fall feast from Leviticus 23 could be fulfilled in such rapid succession, but not any longer.

    Hi John,

    The courts have much power with God that in a way is kind of scary to me.

    Back in the early 1990’s I was reading in a local newspaper about a judge in California, I think it was L.A. He was angry that the citizens would not show up to court to fulfil their jury summons obligations.

    One day in court he said that it would not rain until people started showing up to court to fulfil their obligations.

    Well, a drought came to that area. It lasted for a long while.

    One day he got to thinking why and he remembered what he had said. So, he took his gavel and banged it on his desk and said that it was going to rain.

    Guess what!? It rained.

    Judges apparently have much power with God.

    If the US Supreme Court rules in favor of SSM even when the citizens of California voted against it but the state overruled it then God will take it as the law of the land, remove the power of the citizens to determine what laws control their state, and pour out His judgment against this ungodly nation.

    America is doomed. We have no hope unless this nation’s leaders and its people repent and turn to righteousness. This just isn’t going to happen though. We have gone too far.

    In the Word of God we read about how God has destroyed nations over the wickedness of its people and government leaders. There are a lot of Christians and non-Christians who don’t think it will happen to us. But they are wrong.

    America will be destroyed.

      Star,
      America is right now on the edge with the Holy God of Israel.
      Homosexual “marriage” is a mockery of what God instituted for the family unit.
      Two homosexuals living together are not a family.
      America has been warned and warned about the abortion and homosexual agenda, plus dividing the land of Israel
      Hurricane Sandy is just a warmup of what is coming.
      If you follow my blog and I will the national sin such as homosexual “marriage” together with the devastating disaster.
      The way the Holy God of Israel has been doing this, there will be no mistaking the disaster is because of national sin.

    Wow, I thought it would take a little longer for this to come about. I thought Obama would have to replace one more justice. I guess not. Well, the Lord’s will be done. I am praying for the dialogue to get intense and the TRUTH be shouted from the roof-tops! “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!” John 8:32; John 10:14.

  6. Keith O. says:

    You should see the lake level of Lake Huron in Michigan. It is apocalyptic to look at it. At least some people are taking notice of it, along with drought and trees getting destroyed by pests. Areas of our once beautiful landscape are a reflection of our nation’s spiritual condition. You should’ve seen some of the corn fields here this fall-corn stalks that should have been 8 foot tall or more that was only 4 to 5 foot tall. Pray that those who don’t know the Lord will somehow wake up and turn from their rebellious ways. God always purged the rebels.

  7. Janine says:

    Just a personal Testimony: I was reading the word with the Holy Spirit and Mark 12:29-31 just leapt out at me. HEAR O ISRAEL, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. (The Spirit showed me how I was One with Israel – I’m probably a bit slow) And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart……) Why have I always missed the ‘Hear o Israel part’? I only ever quoted the second part! Go figure! ”The Holy Spirit showed me that I was actually one with Israel spiritually. Ever since then Iv’e had a desire to read His entire word – I actually never read the Old Testament before and now I see Jesus on every page – there’s such a richness of His word now! I also have a love for Israel like never before and a heart to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. And so I love this blog about not dividing Israel! God sees us as one in Jesus. The Holy Spirit is such an amazing teacher.
    I also found…
    Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all One in Christ Jesus. I conclude there is ONE way to God through One Covenant and One Savior, Jesus Christ. And There is One People of God, One Church, One Israel, which consists of all who are in Jesus Christ. Love how we are all one in Him and Love how you love Israel through this blog John! God bless you!

  8. Michael says:

    Heb 12:26 a great shaking is going on on planet earth.Here is an illustration,if you want to wake someone up that is asleep first you speak to them.If that doesn’t wake them you shake them gently.If that doesn’t stir them then you shake them more violently.God is doing that now because He wants to wake up those who are asleep to their need if Him.My prayer is that many will be woken up otherwise the shaking will get much worse.It may be almost too late for some.Even so come Lord Jesus.
    God bless from Michael

    John,

    Have you seen this article?

    David Cameron Supports Gay Marriage in Churches; Religious Leaders Worried

    http://global.christianpost.com/news/david-cameron-supports-gay-marriage-in-churches-religious-leaders-worried-86278/

    Do you think Obama will eventually require all Churches to perform SSM regardless how they feel about it?

  10. Keith O. says:

    Along with this Supreme Court decision, which will open the floodgates of unrighteousness, I’m getting a sick feeling that the upcoming election in Israel will not go well. Jerusalem could be compromised from within if the hard left are elected. At this point I have to remember these verses:
    Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
    Hsa 8:4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew [it] not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

  11. Keith O. says:

    Some things to consider:
    Deu 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
    Deu 28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
    Deu 11:26 ¶ Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
    Deu 11:27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
    Deu 11:28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
    1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams
    Ecc 12:13 ¶ Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man.
    Hsa 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
    How many blessings have I unwittingly forfeited in my life(along with the curses I’ve likewise aquired) because of disobedience through my lack of knowledge and rejection of God’s law?
    God will never bless disobedience regardless of my best intentions. He would have to violate His own Word to do so.
    I ponder these things when I get questioned from my 8-year-old son, “Dad, if we’re part of God’s family, then why are all of OUR trees dying, too?”(Here in Michigan, the Emrald ash borer is devastating the state’s forests-I have read-but not confirmed-that in areas where the ash are all dead, the borer is turning to other species of trees). When I see these things affecting the trees on my property, too, then my response to seek the Lord through His Word to see if there is something that I have missed. Psa 119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved. Amen.

    Can the members of the Supreme Court distinguish between real marriage(man-woman) and fake marriage? And if they can, will they rule against those who want to equate real and fake marriage?

  13. JD says:

    Surely, this can’t be true! – Obama a homosexual with an arranged marriage..
    I mean its on the Internet – it must be true! lol lol lol
    “This is the second of a series of articles WND has developed from months of confidential in-person interviews with members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago who have known Barack and Michelle Obama on a personal basis over many years. In the first story, members of the church claimed Barack Obama benefited from Wright’s “Down Low Club,” part of a documented underground subculture in which black men who engage in homosexual activity marry to maintain respectability in public. Because of the personal risk the sources perceived they were taking to speak candidly about the president and his family, their identities have been masked.

      JD, This guy just gets creepier by the day. This verse immediately comes to mind:
      Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
      And along with Jamie Foxx at the Soul Train Awards on BET calling him “God” and “our lord and savior, Barack Obama”!
      Consider this verse:
      Zec 11:17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword [shall be] upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
      Chuck Missler pointed out that this may refer to the near fatal head wound. One thing about the Zechariah verse that is noteworthy, at least to me, is the word “idol”. Idolatry is defined by this verse:
      Col 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

  14. The headlines read “Assad’s last warning to rebels before using chemical weapons. West, Israel on high preparedness”.

    Again, just a reminder everyone needs to continue to pray for Israel…. Below is the link to the full article.

    Deu 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, [and] if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
    Deu 30:11 ¶ For this commandment which I command thee this day, it [is] not hidden from thee, neither [is] it far off.
    Deu 30:12 It [is] not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
    Deu 30:13 Neither [is] it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
    Deu 30:14 But the word [is] very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
    Deu 30:15 ¶ See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
    Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
    Deu 30:17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
    Deu 30:18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, [and that] ye shall not prolong [your] days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
    Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
    Deu 30:20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

  16. Tim Shey says:

    The drought is so bad in parts of the United States, that the Mississippi River is drying up–they may have to stop the barge traffic on the Mississippi. Of course, the pagans think this is because of global warming. This drought is because of sin (homosexuality, abortion, enviro-paganism, etc).

    I just saw something on the History Channel about the Plague of Justinian in 542 AD. Approximately 25 million people died in the known world at that time. Then there was the Black Death in 1347-1351 that may have killed 30 to 50 percent of Europe.

    There is a lot of pride in medical science and technology in the United States. What if the Lord gives us a plague that medicine can’t conquer?

    “US President Barack Obama on Saturday night congratulated Jews around the world on the first night of Hanukkah, the festival of lights.

    “Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Hanukkah around the world,” Obama said in a statement. “This Hanukkah season we remember the powerful story of the Maccabees who rose up to liberate their people from oppression. Upon discovering the desecration of their Temple, the believers found only enough oil to light the lamp for one night. And yet it lasted for eight.”

    Obama called on people of all faiths to recognize their common aspirations. “This holiday season,” he said, “let us give thanks for the blessings we enjoy, and remain mindful of those who are suffering. And let us reaffirm our commitment to building a better, more complete world for all.”

  19. Janine says:

    I’ve been pondering His commandments and blessings as we follow Him too lately and living the new way of the Spirit. I’ve been thinking that we serve, obey and worship Him now in both Spirit and in Truth. So the word and His Spirit work together as we grow more and more in Him. We are all on a journey and at different places in our walk. And who knows but God where we’re at? So we cannot judge. Gotta keep loving! The Spirit encourages us to follow His commandments as we meditate on His entire word and enables us to obey The Word by His grace. It’s not a burden. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
    (1 John 5:3)
    “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; ……. He who does not love Me, does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” (John 14:23-24)
    “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” (I John 2:3-6)
    But now we serve not under [obedience to] the old code of written regulations, but [under obedience to the PROMPTINGS] of the Spirit in newness [of life].” ( Romans 7:6 Amp ).
    It is not so much out of obedience or obligation to His written commandments as such but out of an inspiration by the Spirit of God to obey them out of love as He reveals & writes each one on our hearts. These same commandments He presented to the people and taught on in the temple. He summarised them into two main principles of loving God and loving our neighbour, as the essence of His Father’s commandments. “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Matthew 22:37-40 from Deuteronomy 6:5).
    When I look back I see how He has enabled me by His grace to follow Him more and more. A bit like in Acts 15. When they heard the Word of God each week in church they became more and more obedient by the Spirit of grace, and sin naturally began to fall off their lives as they fed on His Word. Oh that He alone be glorified as His righteousness shines through us and we walk it out by faith.
    Acts 15:18-21
    “Known to God from eternity are all His works. 19 Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath.”
    Just my thoughts.

    I love hearing that song, ‘The King is Coming’!

    The King is Coming, The King is Coming, I just heard the trumpet sounding and his face I now see, praise God he’s coming for me!!

    I can only make joyful noise unto the Lord but it is music to him!

    John, I went back in the archives to April-when many of our spirits were troubled-something being wrong, but not quite being able to put our finger on it. I was hoping to veiw the “comment section”, but I remember you changed something about the site at that time-anyway, our comments are no longer there. Is there any way to find them? But, even though the comments aren’t there, your commentary and articles are:

    Apr 12th

    Posted by JohnMcTernan in As the World Has Done to Israel

    No comments
    .

    Isaiah 26:9

    With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments [are] in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

    Commentary

    Last night I could feel the judgments hovering over America. It was almost palatable, and I was very upset in my spirit. Something is going on with Obama and Israel behind the scene that we are not fully aware of. Maybe Obama is getting ready to sellout Israel? I just could not go to bed but was researching and reading. I posted the Earthquake Warning early this morning.

    I know I responded to your commentary in the comment sections about having a VERY troubled spirit myself at that time-I believe others did, too. I do not keep a diary or journal and don’t remember the exact time period that this occurred. Did anyone else who felt something change at that time keep such records as to the timing? I would like to note that the April 12 post was during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. God is doing a mighty work amonst His people. He’s trying to get our attention. God Bless. Keith.

    Wow, The very first thought that entered my mind when I read about “The Supreme Court to hear gay marriage cases” was when Abraham pleaded with God in Genesis chapter 18. are we there yet pleading with God?
