What the modern Democratic Party has now become. What the Republican Party may try to become.
Media Moguls site climate change, or removing the plastic from the ocean, income inequality, labor unions, Russian election meddling, government corruption, impeaching the President, or impeaching everybody else, fake news, censorship, Antisemitism, or any of the other headline making problems which may be real in themselves. But that is not the key issue.
NO, it’s all about sex. The primary goal of modern politicians is to maintain the fiction that men (males) can have unlimited sex without responsibility, accountability or consequences. Abortion on demand and paid for by the government allows them to believe this fiction.
After that every other issue is just glamorized window dressing. It’s embarrassing, it’s raw, but it strips away the Emperor’s Political Regalia and gets down to the real vote. Who votes and why.
The god Moloch
This is not new. The ancient Canaanite religion outlined the contest between the newly emergent Hebrews in the land of Israel and the hedonistic worshipers of Moloch, the god of abortion, cutely called “child sacrifice” so it sounds like a religious rite. We must also include here sex trafficking of all persons, young and older. God has already brought partial judgment to the nation with the highest rate of sex trafficking worldwide. God threw a giant millstone into the sea.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob said flatly that this Canaanite crowd must be completely wiped of the face of the earth. He was not even a little iffy about it. And that He also said, “I am the Lord. I change not,” He’ll not be changing his mind about this either. The Canaanites must go, in spite of the command being ignored for 3500 years.
It appears that it is time’s up now for this command to be leveled, Syria is part of the old Canaanite territory so the total destruction of Aleppo makes some sense. Just as Lot and his daughters fled Sodom and Gomorrah, the civilians escaped Aleppo in 2016.
Free sex is a fiction which must come to an end because human beings are eventually responsible, accountable, and will also suffer consequences. There is a price to be paid for every immoral act; sometimes that price comes in this life, and sometimes in the next life but it comes. God is not mocked; whatsoever we sow we also reap.
God waited 3500 years to turn the homeland of the worshipers of Moloch, the abortion god, into a parking lot. Will he wait another 3500 years to make good his word for the modern child killers? I rather doubt it.
Truth can make you free, but only as you marshal the courage to face it. Americans are watching the cancer of corruption of the soul to strip away their government in the name of egalitarianism or diversity or fairness. There is nothing fair about murdering a defenseless child-to-be in the womb, endangering the life and psyche of the mother, costly huge amounts of money for an unregulated industry (abortion) and forcing unqualified refugees to head to the USA to fill jobs which could have been done by native born citizens.
The next election will decide America’s future
When the Democrats at their 2016 convention announced that God was no longer relevant to their political goals, God was paying attention. This open endorsement of atheism brings a curse, a curse which continues to this day. In the wings still stands the ancient god Moloch always ready to make a religion out of killing your kids. Nice try.
This next election will determine a new Supreme Court; the wrong one could endorse sexual deviancy or not. The next election will determine the makeup of Congress and the future Congressional districts which may favor sexual deviancy or not. The next Senate will determine who is appointed to the Supreme Court – those who approve or reject sexual deviancy – or not. Many new Governors will also be selected. No matter what the news media say about this next presidential election, the issue underneath it all will be abortion. And as America goes, so goes the world. God wants to know which side you are on.

Written eleven years ago, this description of what God’s plans for Iran and the Middle East still stands true. Yahweh is outside time, and His words remain to be fulfilled. Some of them take thousands of years. Today, 2019-2020 the Middle East is still in the cross hairs. December 6, 2019 Uprising in Iran
The purpose of divine prophecy is to prepare us so we are not surprised or moved by international wars and rumors of wars. Yahshua said “watch and pray.” The Bible was written for all men, not just Jews and Christians. Be ready.
THE PROPHECY OF EZEKIEL 38 By PAT ROBERTSON
Friends, you might like to know what the Bible has to say about Israel in the last days. Here’s what the Book of Ezekiel tells us in the thirty-eighth chapter:
Ezekiel 38:1-9 (NASB) And the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, ‘Thus says the Lord
GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.
I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops—many peoples with you. Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them.
After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them. You will go up, you will come like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your troops, and many peoples with you.” ’ ”
This is the prophecy of Ezekiel, that in the latter days a coalition of nations is going to come against Israel. Let’s look at a map of the region, and find out what nations are included in Ezekiel’s prophecy. Israel is in the center. The Bible refers to Israel as the “navel of the earth.” Surrounding Israel are the other nations mentioned in Ezekiel:
There is Put – which is modern day Libya. Ethiopia, more correctly translated Cush, or what we know as modern day Sudan. Gomer is the Caucasian area of Eastern Europe. Beth-togarmah which may be Turkey. Gog and Magog, comprised of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kurdistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and others.
Meshech, which is now the Russian Federation. Rosh means “head”, and is apparently Russia. Persia, which is modern day Iran. And what do these nations have in common? Most are Islamic states. Iran, Libya, Sudan, the “stan” countries: Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kurdistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Turkey – all Islamic states and many are breeding grounds for radical Islamic terrorism. Iran has publicly declared its desire to see Israel annihilated. Iran would have to cross Iraq and perhaps come down through Syria on its way to the border of Israel. Just as Ezekiel has prophesied, these nations will gather together against the chosen people of God.
Ezekiel has painted a picture of modern day Israel as well. The prophet describes in the latter days, Israel will be gathered together from many nations. Israel will rebuild the nation that was desolate and will desire to live in peace in the land. That’s when this armada of essentially Muslim nations will be joined together with Russia to invade Israel. Now, here is a remarkable thing. Ezekiel says this group of nations will not include Egypt, or Jordan. It will not include Saudi Arabia or Yemen.
Isn’t it amazing that in an unprecedented move in 2006, members of the Arab League of nations, for the first time have denounced another Muslim group for provoking and attacking Israel? Who are these nations that have broken allegiance with this radical Muslim attack? None other than Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Together, they are condemning Hezbollah. In fact, they are hoping Israel is successful in diminishing this powerful terrorist organization along with its sponsors, Syria and Iran. Iran has become too powerful in the region.
The idea of an Iran, armed with nuclear weapons, is a threat to Arab nations as well as Israel. This is the situation described by the prophet Ezekiel. You ought to read your Bibles, Ezekiel 38. Can this be a prelude to that? We’re not sure, but it could be. As we begin to see the line-up of nations conforming to the prophecies of the Bible, we can be very sure of the outcome: God has promised that He will destroy the enemies of Israel and bring glory to Himself.

Germany is under siege from its Muslim immigrants who have refused to integrate into Germany society. Now Germans are moving to Hungary to avoid the onslaught. Here is the reason why this has happened. Click here https://www.ibtimes.co.uk/germans-move-christian-hungary-flee-migrant-crisis-1562217
This is an opinion piece that appeared on the blog of Paul Marek, on February 21 2006, under the title of “Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant.” The article was picked up by the Israel National News and appeared the publication in March 2007.
Dr. Emanuel Tanay, the son of Jewish dentists, was born in Russian occupied Vilna in 1928, which is now part of Lithuania, according to the personal account of his life in a Polish ghetto during the Holocaust
Marek’s article was apparently altered and posted on several reader and comment boards on the World Wide Web. Some altered versions include Marek as the author and cite Tanay as the original forwarder of the story.A German’s View on Islam. This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.
The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well known and well respected psychiatrist.A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.
Nazism originally thought merely foolish
- ‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything.
- Nazis caused destruction of basic economy
- I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories. We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.
- Islam is fanaticism
- It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march.. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.
- Silent Minorities allowed the slaughter
- Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
- Peace loving people must still oppose dictators
- The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?
- There is no volunteer war
- History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
- Leadership vacuums must end
- As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life. Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this and think about it, and send it on before it’s too late.
Unwittingly Russia primarily, with Great Britain and the USA as back up defeated Hitler, Jew-hater extraordinaire. The result was that they saved the Jews, but by wiping clean the Jews from Europe, the door opened to the Muslim takeover of Europe which now is their destruction, Hitler’s millions squared.
Back in 2000 I preached at a Methodist church. The scripture for that Sunday was this:
Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.
I feel sure the congregation was confused as I never discussed the scripture until the last minute when I said, “Peace will come to Jerusalem when the Prince of Peace comes to Jerusalem.”
Now more than ever my sermon could be called a prophecy. Never has the peace of Jerusalem seemed more endangered. Some modern prophets believe Jesus (Yahshua) will be accepted by the Jewish people in the next few years. Of course that is not all Jewish people just as not all Christians believe the same thing.
Israel is in a constant state of war, 40 years of war. https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-edit-the-other-cold-war-20191104-w46sjswy5jeophunlttyzt3plu-story.html
Places where children congregate, like schools and hospitals, have bomb shelters and people have jackets to protect themselves.
We are told to pray, “Come Lord Jesus,” Revelation 22:20 [ I Am Coming Quickly ] He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Prophets do not agree on when Yahshua will return but all agree it will be in this century. I have no predictions but I do hope I will still be here when it happens.
This makes sense to me.
If Jesus went to all that trouble to die on the cross for the human race and the earth as well, why would He leave it in enemy hands? and take the believers to heaven when it is easier to take the wicked and leave His earth to His people?

Here is some up-to-date information about the last days. Click below.
(6) “Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities.
And lack of bread in all your places;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
(7) “I also withheld rain from you,
When there were still three months to the harvest.
I made it rain on one city,
I withheld rain from another city.
One part was rained upon,
And where it did not rain the part withered.
(8) So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water,
But they were not satisfied;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
It’s pretty clear. God is trying to get our attention. Ebola, ISIS, 80 inches of snow in Boston (and more coming) and throughout the Northeast, Northern California drowning and Southern California burning up, crops, parched, gangs and violence in the cities (Missouri), Lyme disease (Texas) burning heat wave (Oklahoma), beheadings for Brits and many others, missionaries killed, new diseases attacking children primarily, antibiotics that no longer work, flu vaccines that only help 1/3rd etc. etc.
(9) “I blasted you with blight and mildew.
When your gardens increased,
Your fig trees,
And your olive trees,
The locust devoured them;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
(10) “I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt;
Your young men I killed with a sword,
Along with your captive horses;
I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
The mass shootings are a plague. Drug addiction is a plague. The embarrassing failure of the American press is a plague. Corruption in government is a plague. Mysterious diseases like autism and Alzheimer are a plague.
(11) “I overthrew some of you,
As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the LORD.
The Congressional Democrats conducting witch hunts, hoaxes, and constant impeachment talk is a plague.
God wants our attention. Does He have it yet?

As the political situation becomes more difficult, not just in the USA but also and most urgently worldwide, more and more people ask when will God come to judge the earth. Almost all information on this is divisive and unclear. Isaiah speaks of the Day of Wrath.
Isa 13:13-15 – The day of wrath is the day of the lord. (KJV) 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. 14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. 15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
Here is where everyone returns to his own land. Whether this applies to us believers is a matter of discussion and on whether you believe the rapture occurs before the day of the Lord, or after this passage or whether you believe it is later on. Definitely one thing is sure – we will all decide on which side of Right or Wrong we stand.
There are 3 interpretations of the “day of the Lord.”
1 – Believers are raptured and watch the events as a cloud of witnesses.
2 – Believers stay here through the judgment and are protected, hidden in some safe place.
3 – Believers stay through the judgment and act as helpers to those whom God wants to save because God has said, “occupy ‘til I come” so we do not leave our post.
The answer to this question depends on timing. Since God lives in eternity, when He speaks of time its relevance to us is like walking through a mist. When He says “soon” we cannot know if this is 10 years or 100.
The word “flee” home tells us that people are not returning home voluntarily. Something has driven them to leave in a big hurry.
These questions have no universal agreement as of yet. I feel sure they will be straightened out in due time. For now, I’d suggest that no one can be absolutely sure.

As Washington DC goes through a miasma of turmoil, reviewing what God promised in 2016 needs to be re-read. Our government is not a flash in the pan. We are here for the long haul. Please note how much of this is already happening.
I’ve been active in politics since 1960 and never have I seen so much change and turmoil. But God is neither surprised nor unprepared. These following words come from the ministry of Kim Clement who ha a remarkably accurate record of predicting the truth.
In addition 500 Christian pastors are running for public office in 2016. This reminds me of the Revolutionary War, when Pastors announced from their pulpits that they were removing their black robes and girding on a sword for America. It influenced many people at that time.
God is neither Democrat or Republican
SOME GOOD NEWS (PROPHECIES) REGARDING THE CURRENT POLITICAL SITUATION
December 31, 2014 As I saw these different flags, the Spirit of God said to me, there shall be a revelation that shall bring the United Nations to a place of dismay and humiliation. I shall, this next year, I shall deal with corrupt leaders, even in the United States of America and there shall be shining lights that will come from a people that will say “we are dissatisfied with Republicans and we are dissatisfied with Democrats.” There is a new party that has arisen and shall come forth and capture the hearts of the young people, says the Lord.
February 22, 2014 This man will throttle the enemies of the West, and there are highly embarrassing moments that are about to occur for many, many politicians in this nation. There will be a shaking amongst the Democrats in the upcoming elections, but unsettling for the Republicans.
October 29, 2010 -What you are about to see with your own eyes is how the people of this nation will turn things around. There is a changing of the guard that’s coming your way. Something very unusual is about to transpire. They will say, what has happened to the Democrats? They’ll say what’s happened to the liberals? They’ll say, what has happened to the Democrats, then they’ll say what’s happened to the Republicans as well? For God says I am joining forces so that something fresh and something new may arise. How many of you are ready for something new to arise? Now they’ll say, what’s happened to the Democrats? Now they say what’s happened to Republicans? We are ready for change! We are ready for change! We are ready for change! We are ready for change! The Spirit of the Lord says they will say, what’s happened to the left? They’ll look to the right and say, what’s happened to them? Then they’ll say what’s happened to those who have called themselves liberal and those who are conservatives. Then they’ll look straight ahead and they’ll hear the sound of righteousness.
October 14, 2006 -I spoke of unbuckling the Bible belt and revealing and exposing the nakedness. Well, God says, be thrilled about this, when I have exposed nakedness I clothe with garments of righteousness. And this is what shall take place in Florida. This will take place in Massachusetts. This will take place in the Northeast. This will take place in Texas. This will take place on the west coast. I’ll go as far as Oregon but God said listen, there is going to be great exposures of nakedness and then I will clothe with righteousness and this nation shall experience a breakthrough and a revival as it has prayed for, for 100 years. It shall shake this nation, says the Lord.
I suggest you look around to see who is returning to his own homeland and why, to teach you about the end of the age. It may well be you.
God is changing the face of American politics. Rejoice!

On the last night before Bob Jones’ passing Bonnie Jones was alone with him in his hospital room and observed the clock on the wall as it sped forward. At exactly 11:55 p.m. the red second-hand began to move quickly then rested at the perpendicular position pointing to twelve. Immediately the minute hand began to advance forward rapidly. Of course when the minute hand moved, the hour hand advanced as well. Throughout this process the minute hands did not move. It all stands for the new move of God for this generation.
Join Bonnie Jones as she describes and interprets this amazing spiritual sign for the Body of Christ.
As you watch the hands move you can tell by the background conversation that no one has sped the clock forward with any device. All the talk is current.
This text can also be found on The Elijah List.
“Bob Jones’ Clock Stopped Here: We Must Discern the Times”
Bonnie Jones, Pineville, NC
He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-4
On the last night before Bob Jones’ passing, I was alone with him in his hospital room and observed the clock on the wall as it sped forward. At exactly 11:55 p.m. the red second-hand began to move quickly, then rested at the perpendicular position pointing to twelve. Immediately the minute hand began to advance forward rapidly. Of course when the minute hand moved, the hour hand advanced as well.
In this quick transition, the clock stopped at exactly eight o’clock for a period of five seconds. It began spinning forward again until both hands reached exactly midnight then they stopped. The red second-hand jumped forward five seconds then the clock seemed to reset itself. This process took a total of five minutes. The same thing happened with the clock exactly one week earlier. At that time four others, beside myself, were in the room to bear witness to this extraordinary yet prophetic happening.
Several weeks after Bob’s passing, we talked with the head of security from the hospital. We showed him the video we made on our phone of the clock in fast-forward. He was amazed and said it was impossible for this to happen. He told us that all hospital clocks are synchronized to atomic time for the purpose of recording births, deaths, surgeries, etc., because the timing must be precise. Yet, this did happen – not once, but twice.
I believe that God was showing us a demonstration of spiritual things being accelerated in the Body of Christ. The fact that the clock stopped at eight o’clock indicates a new beginning. There was grace before the new day (11:55 p.m.) that has been extended to the Body of Christ. Bob would speak of the number eleven, from Isaiah 11, where God is stretching forth His hand a second time to the remnant. And I believe fifty-five reveals great grace being released to bring in the billion-soul harvest Bob often spoke of.
It shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of His people who are left… Isaiah 11:11
I believe the red second-hand resting on the twelve pointed to God’s divine apostolic government being established. In fact, I believe it is already in position and now being revealed by the Spirit of Truth. There were five witnesses – also meaning grace. The first time it happened was February 6; six representing the number of man.
The time 11:55 also represents two chapters in the Bible: Isaiah 55 from the Old Testament, and Hebrews from the New. Hebrews chapter 11 is known as the faith chapter. It’s loaded with testimonies from the heroes of faith. Yet the night of Bob’s passing, I witnessed his demonstration of obedience that leads to faith. And this is what I believe the New Testament saints walked in. Bob would always talk about Isaiah 35 being the Highway of Holiness and Isaiah 55 being the conditions for it.
Highway of Holiness
Daily we need to heed to the voice of the Lord and obey. Too many have partaken of the fruit of the world and walked in its ways. Our soul is easily swayed by all the distractions of this fast-paced world. Yet our spirit should be the reigning authority in our life. If our spirit is submitted to the Holy Spirit, we will make choices according to the Father’s will and stay on His Highway. As the Body of Believers walk with the Lord on the Highway of Holiness, surrendered in obedience to Him, their toxins are flushed out of the soul and only their redeemed spirit remains.
In short, all roads lead to the same place, although some take detours and never return to the straight and narrow way. Some are all about self and some are all about I AM. Take the road less traveled and arrive on time in the arms of Jesus.
Please view this video of the clock in fast-forward recorded on February 6th, 2014 in Bob’s hospital room (link below). Indeed, it was a supernatural phenomenon that only God could make possible. It’s an extraordinary prophecy and we need to take heed and understand: the time is NOW for HARVEST.
Time has been accelerated and we must be able to discern the signs of the times. Don’t let the distractions of this world keep you from walking with Him in the eternal realm.
Step into the harvest field of hope and follow after Him, only He can make you a fisher of all mankind. Follow the road less traveled and bear witness to the Anointing.

The Bible is quite specific on how Jesus will return. He Himself said He would return in the clouds of heaven. In the book of Acts right before His accession into heaven the angels spoke to his disciples and said He would return just as He left, in a cloud.
Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
This seems pretty straight forward, but there is something we miss. What or who are the clouds?
Matthew 26:64 Hereafter shall ye (King James for you’all) see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
We have a choice here. We might assume this means clouds from the first heaven, the atmosphere around the earth. But assumptions lead us astray. That would make sense only if Jesus were going to the moon or maybe Mars, but he is going to the heaven of His father.
The clouds of heaven are defined in the book of Hebrews.
Hebrews 12:1 we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
In other words, clouds are the witnesses (us) those who have died and are in heaven. This is the makeup of the cloud that both received Jesus at the on resurrection Sunday and also “saints” who will come back with Him. The first cloud was made up of Abraham, David and all the luminaries of the Old Testament.
The next cloud appearance will be of those, perhaps including you and me, to come back to earth with Him. If you are Holy Spirit filled and under the Covenant of God, it is your privilege to return with Him.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
At that time Jesus will not be coming as a lamb, but as an angry lion, prepared to require final judgment on a world gone bad. And that is a day we all wish to see, whether now or in the years to come.
In conclusion: Jesus is coming for believers, not unbelievers and many will not be going with him. When this happens is the main issue. We do not know when, just we have His promise that it will happen.
The once popular notion that ontogeny recapitulated phylogeny, which claimed that embryos can predict future development, is no more scientifically valid but I see an interesting application of this to how we understand Jesus from the most basic “I never heard of Him” to the Kingdom-active life of a completely committed believer.
God’s people began ignorant
The apostles (disciples) were, just as we are, completely ignorant about who Jesus really was, and what his program and purpose on earth might be. They started out believing, because they were part and parcel of his activities, that he was a nice man with special God-given powers. When he died they scattered not because they were disloyal but because they thought he was like other men, the way any person who recognizes that his hero is dead and he needs to find another hero, another leader.
A dead Jesus is better than a living one
This is a detailed dream and the symbolism of the security breach in the White House and its interpretation as a future of terrorism in the United States through Texas. It is long but for people who want to understand how dreams and symbols are interpreted it is a solid message based on current events.

A metaphor is “representative or symbolic of something else, especially something abstract.” Life illustrates theology.
To the luckless journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, it can hardly be called abstract – it is the reality of a lost head, but symbolically it tells the tale of a dangerous, demonically inspired political system that plans to behead all those nations which disagree with its evil theology. It is a planetary warning to especially Americans, as the keeper of the international purse strings, but also China and all Europe down to tiny little Belize. Even Australia, which has some hope of being isolated, is on guard, full tilt.
These barbarians will tolerate nothing less than full cooperation of every nation, every leader, and more importantly every kind of money in every pocket, a hell on earth.
Symbolism is a Multiverse
Shrouded in dark flowing robes (another metaphor) that cover the face and thus every intention as well the dark hidden truth say they cannot “face” us. They want your head – the head of your family, the head of your government. Their mind is now your mind. People are things. “We slice infants in half. Obey or die.” Symbols expose a reality we may not want revealed.
The Goal – You get a new head
The United States already had a headless leader, President Obama, who thinks that to deny reality will make it go away. He has been reading too much Alice in Wonderland, like the half visible grinning cat in a tree, uninvolved. The Islamic State, he says, is not Islamic which ironically they put it in their name. This is another version of asking what “ISIS is.” Really?
Furthermore, the president calls it ISIL which is a much larger territory than ISIS. ISIL encompasses parts of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and a place called Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East.
Air strikes can win the day, he says, while 31,000 ISIS soldiers wonder how a drone can do all that – since they can just run like so many roaches to another Islamic hideout and wait for the drones to drone on by. And he says, ISIS is not Islamic.
The head that has fallen to the ground is all religions but Islam. If it were not so, wouldn’t Islamic nations such a Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and all countries ending in -Stan, come against this scheming cabal? But instead they let American guns and money fight their intra-Islamic battles.
As we settle their quarrels we elevate Saudi Arabia to take over the Islamic world domination program while hardly lifting a finger. If we let them play this game we are as headless as Leaders-From-Behind.
News media – also headless
Beheading tells us who they are and what their plans are. The head is no longer our God but theirs – Allah, an ancient god of war, celebrates death. Our Western God is for life. It is also a metaphor for what has happened to the America news media. They lost their head years ago and now are scurrying around looking for the lost stories of the past 7 years.
Deut 30:19 I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;
We are in the valley of decision. Israel has made its decision. They said- we didn’t fight in Germany to the death, but we will now.
What will we decide?

A welk known Texas minister said last year, “What the public wants now is prophecy.” Well there is plenty of it.
The public wants prophecy
It started in the USA but the idea that God has appointed Donald Trump as a modern day political figure like Cyrus of the Old Testament was picked up also by Israel. Applauded by Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli leasers, they renamed a section in honor of President Trump even calling him a modern Cyrus. Trump is hailed as a prophet and blessing to the nation. https://www.theepochtimes.com/israel-unveils-new-settlement-named-trump-heights-on-golan_2965819.html
Trump as warrior for Israel
In the USA a book was published prior to the 2016 election predicting Donald Trump’s surprising
Trump’s win had also been predicted by well known Christian evangelist/musician and South African prophet Kim Clement in 2007; Clement died 15 days after that election.
I supported Clement financially early in 2002 and remember hearing this prophecy in 2007. So, it is well documented. Most people can find it on line at the House of Destiny.com. The usual atheists don’t buy this but that is not new and should
What the Bible says about Trump/Cyrus?
Isaiah 45 Common English Bible (CEB)
Cyrus as God’s anointed
45 The Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus,
whom I have grasped by the strong hand,
to conquer nations before him,
and opening doors before him,
so no gates will be shut:
2 I myself will go before you,
and I will level mountains.
I will shatter bronze doors;
I will cut through iron
3 I will give you hidden treasures of secret riches,
so you will know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
4 For the sake of my servant Jacob and Israel my chosen,
I called you by name.
I gave you an honored title,
though you didn’t know me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
besides me there is no God.
I strengthen you—
though you don’t know me—
6 so all will know, from the rising of the sun to its setting,
that there is nothing apart from me.
I am the Lord; there’s no other.
7 I form light and
make prosperity and create doom;
I am the Lord, who does all these things.
8 Pour down, you heavens above,
and let the clouds flow with righteousness.
Let the earth open for salvation to bear fruit;
let righteousness sprout as well.
I, the Lord, have created these things.
Notice: The point of this passage is that God takes responsibility for putting Donald Trump (Cyrus) in office. Is this a reincarnation of the Biblical Cyrus? Absolutely not. The Bible says that these men come in the “spirit of” a forerunner, as it does of Elijah and John the Baptist.
http://Luke 1:17 He will go forth before the Lord, equipped with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will turn the hearts of fathers back to their children, and he will turn the disobedient to righteous patterns of thinking. He will make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
Other writers have jumped on the topic as well.
Why does Trump appear invincible
All attempts to discredit and remove Trump from office have failed. But no matter, his foes continue without a let-up. And his foes have faced embarrassment and shame in many cases. https://wouldyouconsider.net/2019/07/01/what-energizes-the-media-hate-machine/
Don’t expect it to stop. There is a lot of profit in sex trafficking, higher taxes, and the abortion industry and the promotion of illegals’ entry into the USA which keeps many agencies and NGOs afloat financially.
God is protecting his appointee
One of the major blessings of being a Christian is knowing that when you are in the center of God’s will, his appointed or anointed one, no matter whether for a great task or a small, you have his complete attention and
But the bottom line here is that in the end they will all be spinning their wheels if they continue on this negative course. Christians prayed that someone would turn America around and it is happening.
The voters prove it.
This has been in the news recently and it is a healthy sign. https://www.charismanews.com/culture/54193-christian-rapper-renounces-his-faith-in-jesus-as-great-falling-away-continues
God did warn us about this. The Bible says the time will come when people will be divided into believers and unbelievers.
And not just individuals
The Democratic Party in America to widespread astonishment decided to separate itself from God. https://stream.org/democratic-party-resolution-against-christianity/?fbclid=IwAR3Co7nemJAqCPUB2br4XEX_pDM5X8wx8TrVF_8G7qDUfWg19oaYgE5gmoA
The fact that people are openly denying the faith is a sign that we are in the End Times when God will harvest the crop of his believers and separate them from the unbelievers. This is the relevant passage from Matthew 13 (Phillips translation, because he is so clear.)
Jesus again explains a parable to his disciples
36 Later, he left the crowds and went indoors, where his disciples came and said, “Please explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”
37-39 “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man,” replied Jesus. “The field is the whole world. The good seed? That is the sons of the kingdom, while the weeds are the sons of the evil one. The blackguard who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of this world. The reapers are angels.
40-43 “Just as weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire so will it happen at the end of this world. The Son of Man will send out his angels and they will uproot from the kingdom everything that is spoiling it, and all those who live in defiance of its laws, and will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be tears and bitter regret. Then the good will shine out like the sun in their Father’s kingdom.
Public Separation is the sign that we are nearing the end
Too many hangers-on in religion and politics have compromised the faith and sowed division in the churches with unbelievers and suspicious doctrines. It is possible to find any church anywhere espousing stuff the Bible either calls flawed or outright condemns. The sexual revolution is just one of these creeping lies about which believers seem blissfully ignorant.
The Bible warns many, many times about the dangers if marrying “foreign wives.” This is not about human marriage but a symbol of syncretism, http://syn·cre·tism /ˈsiNGkrəˌtizəm/ noun 1. the amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought: bastardization of the faith. This is not about doctrine. There is a wide gap between doctrine and faith and they should not be confused.
On the positive side, faith is the whole of one’s personality resting on someone or something. It is the core of belief. People enter a church building with all kind of faith systems operating in their personalities. Faith in the government, or their parents, a school teacher or the policemen, or faith in a single doctrine, such as ‘communism is the best form of government.’ The doctrine does not need to be true to have many faithful followers.
What happens to individuals as they mature is they slough off faith that is thin or finds itself betrayed, and new forms of faith develop.
Faith in error
That can lead to all kinds of error. Street gangs find faith in each other, in their guns, their wars, and their territories. People can develop overwhelming faith in their mate or their job, until one of them fails or falls through entirely. That is why people who lose a job, or have a death in the family, or divorce, or the public exposure of a trusted public leader can bring people to despair. Faith challenged can be a personal crisis.
Faith is no flash in the pan
True faith is not in externals but in the work and person of Jesus Christ, as both God in the flesh and as our individual link to heaven and the afterlife as well as the promise of a life of joy and peace on earth. That is our goal as believers, faith as a process in our lives over the course of a lifetime.
