Before they slit their throats, they gouged out their eyes. But this is nothing new. These savages did the same thing in 586 B.C.--Read Jeremiah 52:11. Same people . . . same spirit!
"HOW LONG BEFORE YOU JUDGE THE PEOPLE . . . AND AVENGE OUR BLOOD FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO US?"---REVELATION 6:10
ISIS MURDERS 21 CHRISTIANS IN LIBYA!
"The time when the power of darkness reigns" (Luke 22:53).
"Weep for yourselves and for your children" (Luke 23:28).
"I SAW THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAD BEEN BEHEADED FOR THEIR TESTIMONY ABOUT JESUS . . ." (Rev. 20:4).
"THEY WERE TOLD TO REST A LITTLE LONGER UNTIL THE FULL NUMBER WHO WERE TO BE MARTYRED---HAD JOINED THEM" (REVELATION 6:11).
THESE MEN IN ORANGE ARE NOW SHOUTING UNDER THE ALTAR IN HEAVEN. READ IT FOR YOURSELF IN REVELATION 6:9-11.
TODAY---RIGHT NOW---FEBRUARY 2015--IT APPEARS THAT THE "FIFTH SEAL" HAS BEEN BROKEN BY THE LAMB.
I ACTUALLY NEVER THOUGHT I'D LIVE TO SEE THIS DAY AND HOUR. IT IS HORRIBLE BEYOND WORDS OR PICTURES. BUT IT DOES BUILD OUR FAITH BECAUSE THE BIBLE CLEARLY PREDICTED THESE THINGS WOULD TAKE PLACE.
THERE ARE MORE THAN 30 MILLION MEMBERS OF ISIS. SO DON'T THINK THAT THIS TERROR IS GOING TO GO AWAY ANY TIME SOON.
THEY BUTCHERED THESE CHRISTIANS ON THE SOUTHERN SHORE OF THE MEDITTEREAN SEA IN LIBYA FOR A REASON. STRAIGHT NORTH, ACROSS THE SEA IS ROME AND THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. MEMBERS OF ISIS HAVE NOW THREATENED THE LIFE OF THE POPE!
STRANGE . . . THE POPE JUST INVITED MEMBERS OF THE MAFIA TO RETURN TO THE CHURCH. HE KNOWS FULL WELL THAT IF ANY GROUP IS CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH ISIS IT IS THE MAFIA.
BUT THIS SHOULD CALM ALL OF YOUR FEARS--:)-- ONLY 20,000 ILLEGALS HAVE CROSSED OUR SOUTHERN BORDER IN THE LAST 60 DAYS! HOW MANY OF THEM ARE MEMBERS OF ISIS OR SOME OTHER TERROR GROUP?
Part 2 of "In our lifetime": Jeremiah 52.
What goes around comes around. Sometimes people say, "History repeats itself!"
This year is 2015. Backtrack 2,601 years. It is the year 586 B.C.
Israel had a new king who was only 21-years-old, and he had only reigned for eleven years. His name was Zedekiah! It turned out that he was Israel's last king.
As a young buck he chose a bad lifestyle and "did what was evil in the Lord's sight". As you know, this automatically gets you in big trouble.
Because he was living an evil life, he did not seek the Lord regarding the conflict with Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar. He chose to rebel against the most powerful nation on earth.
That also gets you in big trouble!
King Nebuchadnezzar surrounded Jerusalem with his army and put it under siege for two and a half years.
The date was August 17, 586 B.C. If you do not understand Tisha b'Av look it up on Google.
No food came into the city and the famine became so bad that mothers were eating their own children. "The last of the food was entirely gone"(Jeremiah 52:6).
One night King Zedekiah decided to escape with his body guards. He only got as far as the plains of Jericho when he was captured by the Babylonians. All his soldiers forsook him.
The people who captured him were the ancient ancestors of ISIS!---Same geographic area---same people.
You can pretty much guess what they did to Zedekiah. Before they gouged out his eyes they made him watch as they systematically butchered all his sons. That was the last thing Zedekiah saw on this earth!
Then his captors led him away to Babylon where he eventually died in prison. I will leave it to your imagination as to how he was treated in that prison.
How would you like to be a prisoner of ISIS?
Fast forward 70 years: Cyrus, King of Persia, sets the Jewish captives free and they rebuild the Temple and the city of Jerusalem.
Fast forward to the year 70 A.D. The Jewish people did not learn from the first trip to the woodshed. So they were invaded by the Romans and the Second Temple was destroyed.
Fast forward again: May 14, 1948. Israel becomes a nation again after 1,878 years.
Talk about a miracle! And it was predicted by God in the Bible.
So . . . where are we now in 2015? What is next on the horizon? Do your research. I may tackle this subject in a future blog entry.
Enough for now! You have plenty of information to chew on with this entry.
IF YOU ARE NOT A BELIEVER IN JESUS, AND THIS STUFF SCARES YOU TO DEATH, CALL ON HIS NAME RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE, AND ASK HIM TO SAVE YOUR SOUL. HE LOVES YOU AND HE WILL SAVE YOU. FAITH IN HIM GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH HIM!
"IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED." THIS IS RIGHT OUT OF THE BIBLE: ROMANS 10:9
YES, THIS IS GOOD NEWS DURING A TIME OF VERY BAD NEWS. JESUS IS REAL. THE BIBLE IS TRUE. AND WE HAVE THE "BLESSED HOPE" OF SPENDING FOREVER WITH HIM. :)
ONE OF THE THIEVES ON THE CROSS BESIDE JESUS HAD NEVER GONE TO CHURCH. BUT JUST BEFORE HE DIED, HE SAID TO JESUS, "REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR KINGDOM."
JESUS REPLIED, "I ASSURE YOU, TODAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE."
THE REFERENCE FOR THIS IS LUKE 23:42-43.
Billy Graham: "Storm is Coming!"
“The disputed fate of the 21 Coptic Christians abducted in Sirte, Libya is now clear and visible for all to see on video: while holding them down, Islamic State members shove their fingers in the Christians’ eyes, crane their heads back, and slice away at their throats with knives—all in the name of Allah and Islam, all as the slaughtered call out on the “Lord Jesus Christ.”
What is coming down the pike next when the Lamb breaks THE SIXTH SEAL? You guessed it: THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE--REV. 6:12
And now our "President" wants to bring ISIS across our southern border. Has this man lost his mind . . . or has this been his plan all along? Can you imagine the picture above taking place in various parts of the United States of America? What a day in which we are living! http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/29/us-usa-syria-refugees-idUSKBN0L22WX20150129
But remember: THE LAMB BROKE THE SEALS! THE LAMB IS IN CONTROL! JESUS IS MAKING ALL THE DECISIONS REGARDING HOW THESE END TIME EVENTS PLAY OUT. THIS IS GOOD NEWS!
