So they were asking me a lot of questions about the Christmas story.

We were talking about the "star".  If a normal star was over Bethlehem, how did the wise men know which house?  Because the Bible says that the "star" stopped over the house where Jesus was.

If it was a normal star, as we know stars, and it stopped over a city, no one would be able to tell which house it was over.  But it was a moving star that stopped right over the house where Jesus was.

The wise men had seen the "star" in the East.  Then when they got to Bethlehem it appeared to them again and for some reason they were filled with great joy.

We figured that when they saw the "star" in the East it was either the day Jesus was born or maybe the day Mary conceived.

King Herod did find out from the wise men when the star first appeared (Mt. 2:8).  But we are not privy to this information . . . so the fact that King Herod found out does not help us at all.

We had different opinions about where the wise men came from.  Iraq, Iran, India, and China. And, of course, the Bible does not say there were three of them!  Some folks try to identify the country by the items the wise men brought: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

No matter where they came from it took a long, long time to get to Israel.  And when they arrived in Jerusalem it caused such a stir that "the whole city" knew about it. 

By the time they arrived in Bethlehem Jesus was in a "house" not in a barn out back.  And Jesus could have been almost two years old because Herod had all the children killed under two years of age.

We ended up agreeing that the "star" had to be very low in order for it to lead the wise men to the exact house.  We pretty much agreed that it was something very supernatural, somewhat like the "cloud" that received Jesus when He ascended in Acts chapter one.

When all that was over and Joseph and Mary were quite wealthy from all the gifts, then an angel told Joseph to move to Egypt, which he did.  Would you walk 300 miles with a wife and new-born if God told you to do it?

We started talking about where they went in Egypt.  Did they rent an apartment, purchase a house, or did someone take them in.  Maybe that person "knew" they were coming and who they were?

Anyway, they stayed in Egypt until God spoke to them again and told them to return to Israel.  As we all know, they moved back to Nazareth where Jesus was raised.

The Christmas story never grows old!

A virgin has a baby!  Blows everyone's mind.  Had to be supernatural!  God did it!  The Holy Ghost "came upon Mary".  Whatever that means?

A God/Man was born!   The result:  His shed blood on the cross had the power to cleanse all of us of our sins!  Power!  Power!  Power!  We cannot even imagine it.

And why does the spirit world demand a blood sacrifice?  We will never know the answers to most of our questions.  And when we get to heaven we probably won't bother asking things like this.  We'll be too busy worshiping the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

We all concluded that we should be so thankful that God sent Jesus to die for us.  Thankful!  Thankful!  Thankful!
This is what Christmas means to us.
I hope you enjoyed being invited to our get-together today.

P.S.  Obama did not bother to go to church this Christmas!

Compare this wonderful story with the story of Muslims from a Jewish point of view:

An Urgent Report.

An Urgent Report.
Could you imagine for a moment being born into an Islamic Muslim family? From childhood you are told that if you do this, or that, they will hold you down on a bench and give you 30, 40 or more lashes with a whip, but if you do this, or that, they will cut your hands or feet off. But if you do this, or that, we will bury you up to your head in the ground and stone you to death – starting with small stones and then larger ones. But if you do this, or that, we will cut your head off. And if you ever renounce Islam we will hunt you down and kill you. That is just a small look at Sharia Law. It is really much worse. From childhood you are taught that killing Jews will get you into heaven. Or to die killing any non-Muslim in Jihad will get you into Paradise to be with Allah. And if you give your life as a suicide bomber you are guaranteed to be in Paradise with Allah.

These are the people that Obama and Kerry are trying to force Israel to give up more land to. Knowing it will bring about the end of the Jewish state of Israel. These are also the same people that Obama is moving into positions in the US Government and around the country to begin an Islamic revolution along with nationwide race riots in order to allow the introduction of Martial law.
Obama’s support for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood should be more than enough proof even for the most liberal American. Yet it seems there is a spiritual blindness that has kept them from seeing the truth. Today, Egypt is turning to Russia for military support. Even allowing Russia to build a sea port on the Egyptian shores of the Mediterranean. This will give Russia a port to our north in Syria and now one just to our south on the Egyptian coast. When you consider the kind of missiles these Russian warships carry it is scary to say the least.
Hamas in Gaza was created and supported by the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egypt. This means Hamas now find themselves in a very bad position as Egypt is closing down their supply tunnels into Gaza and the border crossing. Declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization.
With life becoming harder every day in Gaza, the Hamas know they have to do something, and within the Arab world that ‘something’ is always the same; start killing. The enemy if possible – if not, just start killing someone, anyone. It is the Islamic Muslim way.
And here in Israel we are beginning to see that sick Islamic philosophy begin to play out. As missiles once again are being fired out of Gaza into our civilian population – with of course no condemnation from the UN, or the rest of the world. It is a war crime and a crime against humanity – Yet no one seems to want to call it that. After all, they are only killing Jews.
Over the past few weeks we have seen an escalation in bombings, stabbings and shootings. Many have been hurt and even killed by rock throwing at our cars on the highways and roads by “Palestinian youth”. It looks like the beginning of the third “Intifada”. Another Arab word that justifies the killing of innocent people that they call “Infidels”.
In the meantime Islam is moving at a very rapid pace throughout Europe. Large numbers of French Jewry are now leaving in fear for their lives and because they now no longer see a future in that country for their children.
But the door for them to leave on flights to Israel will close very soon and they will be left trying to find other means to leave and come to Israel. The only route available will be by sea. My worst nightmare is that there will not be enough vessels with the capacity needed to accommodate the large numbers whose lives will depend on the boats being available. I have said this before, and I will say it again. The thought of having to tell a family with kids that there is no more room on the boat, thus leaving them to what will most likely be their death, is a dream I’ve had far too many times.
This ministry is small in comparison to what will be needed, and I have known for a long time we will not be able to do everything for everyone who will need our help. God has now shown me that we must also start preparing a food bank for when we arrive here. Things in Israel will be in chaos and food must be ready for them. So I have started storing large Mylar bags filled with beans, rice, and many other items. It is obvious to us that much more is needed and we will continue to do what we can, when we can. We are also getting started in Aquaponics as a food supply.
My greatest desire is to have a larger boat to save many more than we will be able to with the 3 boats we now have. They are small in comparison to what we really need. What we have been looking at is a Turkish Gullet around 40 meters capable of carrying a couple of hundred at a time. The bottom line cost for a seaworthy pre-owned one runs from $400,000 up to over a million. That sounds like a lot of money. To some people Jewish life may be cheap but it is not cheap to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
If there was ever a time when we need supporters of this ministry to really give a sacrificial gift, it is now.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden

We can forgive you for killing our children . . . but we cannot forgive you for making us kill yours!  Golda Mier

Another attack by "peaceful Muslims" in Kenya.  But not to worry.
They only killed "Christians".  

And they only killed about 250 people.

So . . . the news media did not bother to even mention it.

105 Times in the Bible . . . 8 times in the book of Revelation.

In Syria the war has raged on for more than 1,000 days.  But for the most part the media ignores it.  Here is a video that tells the truth:  

But guess what the news media would do if ONE Christian murdered ONE Muslim?  It would be world-wide news.

This is how the scales have tilted in favor of the "peaceful Muslims" that Obama is giving positions of power to in his administration.

What a strange coincidence that the book of Revelation 8:13 predicts for these last days: "TERROR, TERROR, TERROR"!

And the news is carried by an EAGLE.


"Not to worry" . . . say many of the church people.  "We good people will be snatched out of here and we won't be around when all these bad things take place."

WHY??  Because you are home watching six or seven hours of television each day?  Is this what sets you apart from all the "bad people" and means you will get snatched out?

DUH!  Open your eyes, folks.  These "bad things" are already taking place.

SO . . . at this point in time there are 7.131 billion people on our planet.

The Bible tells us that one-third of them will be killed (Rev. 9:18).  This means that at least 2.3 billion people on this planet will die.

How's that for "good news"?

Understanding Revelation 17:
Scarlet Beast = The 8th King
Heads = 7 hills and 7 kings
Waters = Masses of people
The Woman =  The Great City
The Lamb will defeat them. 
Because He is Lord of all Lords and King of all kings!
He will put a plan into their minds that will carry out his purposes!
Oh, Oh!  Throw out most of your doctrines and theories about the last days.  Get your mind blown!
What if Mecca is THE GREAT WHORE?

Births Today: 230,000
Deaths Today: 95,000
Population Growth Today: 135,000
Population Growth This Year: 80,112,500 (eighty million, one hundred twelve thousand, five hundred).*


Rev. 9:5-6 "They were told not to kill them, but to torture them for five months . . . in those days people will seek death but will not find it."

Rev. 9:11"Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon . . . the Destroyer."

Rev. 9:15 " . . . to kill one-third of all the people on earth."

Rev. 9:16  "... the size of their army, which was 200 million mounted troops."

Thought for the day:  Have you ever wondered why some Christians take the gospel to the ends of the earth and the rest of the "Christians" merely watch?

Two Million Hits A Month

Mark gets two million hits every month.
When you listen to this you'll know why!

Friday, December 13, 2013


Brian Birdwell was in the Pentagon when United Airlines flight # 77 was purposely flown into the building by raging Arab madmen at 10:03 a.m., September 11, 2001.

Burned on over 80% of his body, somehow he survived.  Talk about miracles!

Here is his story . . .  and well worth the watch:

                                                            Revelation 16

This chapter is one of the most exciting chapters in the Bible.  One of the reasons it is thrilling for the believer is because it tells us the future in language we can understand. 

John heard a mighty voice.  It was coming from the Temple.  Some scholars think there will be a Third Temple here on earth.  The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has prepared every piece of furniture needed.  One of the last times I was in Israel I took a picture of the Menora, which is about six or eight feet high and made out of solid gold.  The estimated value of this one piece of temple furniture is nine million dollars.
But the voice John heard probably emanated from the Heavenly Temple.  This voice spoke to seven angels.  Their job was to “pour out” God’s wrath upon the earth.  So most of this chapter explains in detail what will take place on earth when each angel pours out the “vials” or “bowls”.

The first angel left the Temple and poured out his bowl on the earth.  Every human who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue broke out in malignant sores.  This would include almost everyone on the planet, because only a few of God’s people will refuse “the mark”.  Many people are curious about what “the mark” will be.  But that is a complete different study from the one we are considering here.

The second angel will pour out his bowl on the sea and it will become “like the blood of a corpse”.  Think about this for a moment.  I personally believe that some of the huge oil spills we have observed are like prophetic events pointing to this much larger catastrophe.  The result will be that everything in the sea will die!

The third angel will pour out his bowl on the rivers and springs.  This will cause them to turn to blood.  Can you imagine what it will be like when every river and spring becomes blood?  The Scripture says here that God gives the human race blood to drink as a pay-back for all the blood of holy people and prophets that was shed throughout history.  Blood to drink?

The fourth angel will pour out his bowl on the sun.  Scientists tell us that if the sun was just a few feet closer to earth we would burn up.  And if it was just a few feet farther from our earth we would freeze to death.  My guess is that whatever the fourth angel does to the sun, it will cause its heat to become almost unbearable to the inhabitants of our planet.  Everyone will be scorched!  The result:  people will curse the name of God.  And they certainly will not repent of their sins!

The fifth angel will pour out his bowl on the “throne of the beast”.   The result of this judgment will be darkness.  We already have great spiritual darkness in our world.  But it will become so dark that men will grind their teeth in anguish.  And they will curse the God of heaven because of their pain and sores.  But they will not repent of their evil deeds.  And they will not turn to God.

The sixth angel will pour the contents of his bowl on the Euphrates River.  This is a very, very interesting one!   For the first time in history it is possible to dry up this river.  In 1990 the Turkish government completed a huge dam.  It is called the Ataturk Dam.  Formerly it was called the Karababa Dam, but it was renamed in honor of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic. Now . . . with merely the push of a computer button the mighty Euphrates River can be dried up.  The Bible tells us that this will make it possible for the “Kings of the East” to march their vast armies to Israel without hindrance.  There will be no need to cross bridges.  Within days, or merely a few weeks, the armies of China, India, Iran, Russia, and “all rulers” will enter the valley of Armageddon.  They will gather for battle against the Lord!  When Jesus crushes them their blood will flow up to the horses’ bridles for about 180 miles (Rev. 14:20)!
When we read other parts of the Bible we discover that this huge stream will be a mixture of hail, overflowing rain, mud, and blood.

The seventh angel will bring judgment on the very air we breathe.  A this point in time the greatest earthquake that has ever occurred will level every mountain.  Think about this!  Many, many cities will fall into heaps of rubble.  Every island on the planet will disappear!  During this same time there will be a cataclysmic hail storm with huge hail balls weighing seventy-five pounds each!  But do the inhabitants of earth repent?  No!  You guessed it.  Instead, they continue cursing God.

All I have to say in conclusion is this:  Get your heart right with God by believing in His Son Jesus Christ.  God has made it so easy to get saved.  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.  I’ll tell you one thing.  I want everyone I love to get saved before that great and terrible day of the Lord.  The Bible declares, “Today is the day of salvation.”  Do not harden your heart.  Pray to him right now . . . today!  If you pray and ask Jesus to save you . . . send me an email right now:

       He CHOSE you before the foundation of the world!
                                       (Ephesians 1:4)!
This is the season again when we become busy getting ready for Christmas, visiting family, and traveling.  As I was thinking about these things I was reminded so clearly that God CHOSE to send Jesus to our planet for the purpose of paying for our sins.

God did not have to do this!  But he CHOSE to do it because he loves us so much.

And Jesus CHOSE to obey his Father’s will, even though He knew ahead of time how much He would suffer.  It is just incredible to meditate on these statements!  None of us fully realize how much He loves us.

So . . . as I’ve been thinking about what to say in this Christmas letter it seemed clear to me that I should send you something a little different this year in the form of a word study:

Numbers 16:5

“ And he spoke unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even tomorrow the Lord will show who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he has chosen will he cause to come near unto him.”

The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, has the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”

 Deuteronomy 14:2

1 Chronicles 28:6

“ And he said unto me, Solomon your son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.”

Haggai 2:23

In that day, says the Lord of hosts, will I take you, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the Lord, and will make you as a signet: for I have chosen you, says the Lord of hosts.”

Ezekiel 20:5

“ And say unto them, Thus says the Lord God; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up my hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up my hand unto them, saying, I am the Lord your God;”

A bullet travels about 600 miles per hour.  By comparison, light travels about 186,000 miles per second.  If, by some amazing feat of mechanics you could soup up your car to fly 186,000 miles per second . . . at that amazing speed you would reach the moon in one and a half seconds.  Eight minutes later you would pass the sun.  To get to the next nearest star, you would travel four and half more years.  Even then, you would not have left our galaxy yet!  Our Milky Way alone contains one hundred million stars (each of which God has named -- Psalm 147:4).  And to go from one end of our galaxy to the other (at 186,000 miles per second) it would take 100,000 years.  And that does not include stopping every one thousand miles to change oil in your vehicle.  To reach the nearest galaxy (and there are more than 200 billion of them), which contains hundreds of millions of stars . . . it would take 2.2 million years.  And then you would only be at the tip of the universe.  Scientists believe that there are more than 2 billion galaxies in the universe.  Only God knows what lies beyond . . . because he made it all!

The vast galaxy we live in is spinning at the incredible speed of 490,000 miles an hour.  But even at this breakneck speed, our galaxy still needs 200 million years to make one rotation.  And there are more than 200 billion galaxies similar to ours in this vast universe.  Some scientists say that the number of stars in creation is equal to all the grains of all the sands on all the beaches of the world.  Yet this complex sea of spinning stars functions with remarkable order and efficiency.

Think about this:  God chose our galaxy from all the other galaxies.  Then he chose planet earth.  From all the places on the earth he chose Israel.  From all the places in Israel he chose Jerusalem. There are myriads of streets and places in Jerusalem . . . but, He chose the Temple Mount.  There are more than 100 structures on The Temple Mount.  But He chose to place the 1st and 2nd Temples on a precise location.  Inside the Temple He chose the Holy of Holies for his own divine presence.  And more detailed than that . . . He chose you!

Have a blessed Christmas this year! Thank you for helping us take the gospel to the world.  We stand amazed that people in 74 nations* are listening to our messages and reading our blog.

In His Service,

Wesley Smith
