Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

Israel that Fig Tree

"Now learn a parable of the fig tree: When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh; So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." Matthew 24:32-34.

As you read about prophesy fulfilled before our very eyes do not forget the season we are in one knows the hour nor the day of Christ's return except the Father but we are to know the season.....

(Washington, D.C., February 1, 2010) — Thanks for your prayers. I just got home late last night from a month-long teaching tour around the world for The Joshua Fund. It’s good to be home, but upon landing I learned that Ahmadinejad is threatening to unleash a “harsh blow” to the Judeo-Christian world on February 11th. No one’s sure what he means exactly, but the U.S. is moving new naval forces and Patriot missile batteries into the Gulf region, just in case.

A few highlights from the past few days:

* Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week traveled to to Poland to commemorate the 65th anniversary of liberation of Auschwitz. Speaking on the actual site of the Nazi death camp, the Prime Minister warned the world of new genocidal threats against the Jewish people and the importance of acting early enough to prevent such threats from coming to pass. In a stunning and remarkable moment, Netanyahu also declared to the people of Europe and the world that the prophecies of Ezekiel 37 have been fulfilled. The Holocaust, he said, represented the “dry bones” and “graves” of the Jewish people, and out of that horror the State of Israel was resurrected, just as the Lord said would happen through the Hebrew Prophet Ezekiel. Rarely has any world leader given a major address on an international stage declaring End Times prophecies from the Bible have come true. But that is exactly what Netanyahu did. [Details and the full speech on the weblog.]

* On Saturday, I addressed the Break Forth conference of evangelical Christians in Edmonton, Canada, following Robin Mark singing his powerful worship song about the “days of Elijah” and the “days of Ezekiel.” Quoting from Netanyahu’s speech, I asked, “If the prophecies of Ezekiel 37 have come true in our lifetime, isn’t it remotely possible that the prophecies of Ezekiel 38 and 39 about the coming War of Gog and Magog — the anti-Israel alliance led by Russia and Iran — could come true in our lifetime, as well?” Teaching the two chapters verse by verse, I asked Canadian believers to truly “get ready and be prepared” to live lives of holiness and impact for Christ in these traumatic last days, to intensify their efforts to show Israel unconditional love and unwavering support, and to consider coming alongside The Joshua Fund as we seek to bless Israel and her neighbors in real and practical ways.

* Over the weekend, Lynn and I also had the honor of a private lunch with Anne Graham-Lotz, daughter of Billy Graham. Joining us was Anne’s daughter, Morrow, and our friends Tom and JoAnn Doyle. I’ve posted a few observations on the weblog, but let me just say Anne is a remarkable Bible teacher and passionate about preparing the Church for the return of Jesus Christ. She was born in May 1948, she told us, and is convinced that she is part of the “last generation” on earth, according to Matthew 24. We had a fascinating discussion about the state of the world at the moment, and the alarm bells that are going off indicating the return of Christ is drawing increasingly close.

* Meanwhile, The Joshua Fund team continues to get our new warehouse ready to begin relief operations and to stockpile food and critical supplies ahead of the next war. At the same time, we’re making preparations to provide food at Passover for hundreds of poor and needy Jewish families in Israel. We are also prayerfully working on doubling the number of food distribution centers in Israel that we’re helping operate from four to eight centers in the next few months. Please keep praying that the Lord would lead, guide and direct us for His glory. More details soon. God bless you.

Fact is, Christians have known the foregoing before Netanyahu said a word...we have redeemed the hour correctly and fully expect that the rapture of the saints will take place in our lifetime and indeed, no prophesy needs to be fulfilled prior to that happening....

1st Corinthians 15:51-52 speaks to the mystery of the rapture. The word rapture is not in the scripture but the description of what is to take place is...also a good reference to review when a whole bunch of people simply disappear is 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18.

If you want to be part of this 'raptured' crowd, read all about it in Romans 10:8-10...hey, look it up, you have to do some work to save your own butts....

Redeem the days wisely...time is indeed short....Iran is led by a nutcase with nuclear ambitions and only God and Mossad know the true state of Iran's readiness in using nuclear tipped Isaiah 17 and know that this too is still in your near future....

Tell me then, should Obama crack down and maybe throw a naval blockade around Iran...that could forestall the inevitable.
