Jerusalem is OURS!

UNESCO, that is the ‘United Nations education, Science and Cultural Organisation’ has made a fool of itself by denying the connection between the Jewish people, the Temple dscn9241Mount and the Western Wall. Commenting on this Israel’s Prime Minster said:

“Today the organization took yet another hallucinatory decision that says that the people of Israel have no connection to the Temple Mount or to the Western Wall. Forget about asking if they have read the Bible. I suggest that UNESCO member visit the Arch of Titus in Rome. There you can see what the Romans brought to Rome after they destroyed and looted the Temple which stood on the Temple Mount 2,000 years ago. dscn9270Engraved in the Arch of Titus you can see the seven-branched Menorah, which was and remains a symbol of the Jewish people and is also a symbol of today’s Jewish state. Soon UNESCO will say that the Emperor Titus was in the business of Zionist propaganda.

“To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple and the Western Wall is like saying that China is not connected to the Great Wall of China or that Egypt has not connection to the pyramids.”dscn9267

The enemies of Israel will claim that the holy places are ours (Ezekiel 36:2).The UN already has on its books the aim to internationalize Jerusalem. This is another cause which will impel “all nations to come against Jerusalem to battle”.

Armageddon is in the wind!

Brexit – Britain leaves the EU

Historically, Britain has never been joined with Europe. For over 500 years, Britain has been a trade sea trading power, in fact the mart of nations, which led her to colonise many countries.

Britain has been in Europe since the mid 1970’s. The Bible is clear that at the time of Armageddon when Russia invades the Middle East and advances to occupy Egypt, Britain will make a separate stand from Europe. Portrayed in Ezekiel 38:13 as the modern Tarshish with her commonwealth countries described as “young lions” (she is the mother lion), she will challenge the northern invader.

The Lord will arrive at Jerusalem to prevent stop the deportation of Jews and deliver the occupied city of Jerusalem (read Daniel 11:45; Zechariah 14) and set up his throne there (Zechariah 14:9; Isaiah 2:2-4).

However the nations of Europe (the 10 horns-kings of the Roman beast depicted in Revelation 17:12-14) will “make war with the Lamb” This attempt to challenge the King of Jerusalem – claiming that he is “anti-christ” is the subject of Psalm 2. This war is further described in Revelation 19:19,20. Their end is certain.

Watch this excellent talk produced in February of this year.

Preparing for Armageddon!

Several weeks ago, a military exercise took place in Jordan, Operation Eager Lion. It comprised 18 nations, including Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, Egypt, France, Iraq, Italy, Kuwait, Lebanon, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Additionally, NATO’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps is scheduled to participate in the exercise. This is the 5th year that the two week exercise has taken place. These are some of the nations listed in Ezekiel 38:13, those that will challenge the latter day invasion by Russia and her allies. It is amazing that the exercise is called “Operation Eager LION” – the young lions of the British Empire will certainly take part.

Jordan PreparingThe exercise was held among five sites across Jordan. It was based on the scenario of a friendly force coming to the aid of an ally under threat by an aggressive neighbor. A Navy command out of Bahrain deployed explosive ordnance disposal techs, Seabees and patrol craft from both countries to role-play port security in Aqaba, Jordan’s only coastal city.


When King Salman bin Abdulaziz ascended the Saudi throne last January, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant was well on the way to engulfing western and central Iraq and northern, eastern and southern Syria. On the assumption that the United States could not be relied on to keep the tide away from his realm, the new king started the ball rolling on a revolutionary scheme. It hinged on expanding the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to form a Sunni-ruled buffer state as a barrier against the encroaching jiahdist peril – even if this entailed ditching post-Colonial borders and redrawing the Middle East map anew.

No one in Riyadh or Amman ventures to assess how long it will take to create the new Sunni state. But there is a sense of urgency in both capitals and a feeling that dark crises are gathering fast around their borders. King Abdullah visited London Tuesday, June 22 for secret meetings with officials of the non-Arab members of the coalition the US set up last year to fight the Islamic State.


Gallipoli and the Pope

Gallipoli is now being remembered 100 years after the event. The invasion of Gallipoli was an attempt to get control of the seaway and so relieve the Russian army with supplies, and by opening another fighting front, deflect some German forces away from Europe. It was a dreadful failure.turcia

Gallipoli was bound to fail in the purpose of God. The Anzacs weren’t going to stop at Gallipoli. The next stop was Constantinople, which was going to be given to Russia. In the terms of Bible prophecy is was too soon for Russia to occupy the ancient capital of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire. When Russia does occupy this ancient city, she will be “king of the north” (Daniel 11:40-45) and will then invade Israel and occupy Egypt.

Last week, Pope Francis commented on the killings of the Armenians in 1915, calling it a genocide.

This has infuriated the Turkish authorities. They have withdrawn their ambassador from the Vatican. and said this comment was “a modern reflection of the crusader wars launched in these lands for centuries” (The Press 18 Apr 2015).

In 1096 Pope Urban II ordered the crusades to secure the Holy Places. For several hundred years the people in the Middle East were attacked, butchered and even eaten. Agreements made were not kept by the Crusaders. Historians point out that the Middle East people never forgot this, and see Western interference as another attempt to invade. Osama bin Laden called the American invasion in 1991 “another crusade”.

Netanyahu back in Office

Benjamin Netanyahu has been re-elected Prime Minister of Israel!

We aren’t too interested in the details of Israeli politics. Israel is back in the land and will remain there, according to the will of God. But many still need to “turn from transgression” ere their Redeemer come (Isaiah 59:20).

What we ARE interested in is the policy of Netanyahu. He has come out clearly to say there will be no Palestinian State. What does that mean? In the 1967 war, Israel beat her enemies in a resounding victory, taking the Sinai Peninsula, the Golan Heights and the whole of the West Bank, taken by Jordan in 1948. They have since given Sinai Peninsula back.

There has been great pressure to return the West Bank, once part of Jordan. We-mapSeveral past Israeli leaders have announced they WILL give it, or part of it back! Each of these leaders have been taken out of office by the electorate. The last was Ariel Sharon.

Bible Prophecy is clear. At the time of the end at least the southern section of the West Bank must be in Israeli hands. Zechariah repeatedly refers to Judah and Jerusalem which are part of the West Bank (read chapters 12 and 14).

At the time of Armageddon, “all nations will be gathered against Jerusalem to battle.” (Zechariah 14:2). The city shall fall and Jews will be deported (Zechariah 14:2; Joel 3:5,6). The international force will make Jerusalem its headquarters (Daniel 11:45). When all seems lost, the Lord Jesus Christ shall come to Jerusalem and defeat the armies of the world.

He will make Jerusalem his capital city (Zechariah 14:9) and begin to bring order, resettling the Jews, bringing home all Israel throughout the world in the second Exodus (Ezekiel 20:33+) occupying the ancient promised territory, from the Euphrates to the Nile.

In Netanyahu’s re-election, the Word of God is once more assured!


The old hatred of Jews is rising again.  The 70th anniversary of the freeing of Auschwitz was held a few weeks ago, and now, Jews are being targeted in Europe. In recent days several Jewish graves were desecrated in a cemetery in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Grave Dunedin

Anti-semitism, the historians tell us, began as hordes of Catholic Crusaders rampaged across Europe en route for the Holy Land to get control of the Holy Places from the new invaders from the East.

Israel was conquered and torn out of their land by the Romans in AD70. God said they would “find no ease among these nations” and have “a trembling heard, failing of eyes and sorrow of mind, and thy life shall hang in doubt before thee and thou shalt fear day and night and shalt have none assurance of thy life..” (Deuteronomy 28:65,66).

For all these years, the Jews silently submitted to discrimination and cruelty, until Napoleon gave them equal civil rights. Then slowly, amazingly, began the idea that perhaps they could be their own people once more. Post-World War II, the nations of the UN, conscience-stricken over the death of six million Jews, voted for Israel’s nationhood in November 1947.

Amazingly the tiny state defeated the first attempts at invasion, and are now a strong, independent nation – the only democratic country in the Middle East.

After recent Muslim terrorist events, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is encouraging European Jews to return home, and Israel is preparing for mass immigration.

IT IS NOT OVER! Israel shall once more be invaded, and her people subjected to another holocaust when 2/3rds shall die in the land. “all nations will be gathered against Jerusalem to battle” (Zechariah 13:8,9; ch 14:1-3). This time the Lord will intervene, defeat the nations, put the world in fear and trembling with a massive earthquake and then set up his rule over all the earth (Zechariah 14:4-9, 16).

Middle East Aflame!

Since the end of the Turkish Empire in World War 1, the Middle East has been destabilised. The Allies drew up new borders disregarding the ethic differences in the population. Since the rise of Mohammed in 622AD, these countries have not individually managed their own affairs.

When some Jews began to return to the land, they had to negotiate with the landowners who lived in Constantinople, and so the Arabs and Palestinians, who were tenant farmers, were sent off the land. Increasing pogroms in Russia, drove many Jews back to their ancient homeland. Originally, the Jews settled in the land (of Israel) from 1,500BC. The Romans conquered the land, and expelled Jews in AD70 and again AD134. It was dominated by Rome, and then the Eastern Roman Empire until Mohammed, 622AD. So separate ME countries have not been independent since Rome entered the East.

Israel is the ONLY democratic country in the whole area. Their situation is precarious, but they know they are safe no-where else. After the 1956, 1967, 1973 wars, Jordan and Egypt made peace with Israel, and these countries cooperate in a number of ways. The establishment of Israel is a MODERN PHENOMENON. No other ancient people have been repatriated. The prophecy of Ezekiel 37 is remarkable. See also Romans 11:25-32.

Some present Muslim governments show a brutal face. Not so Turkey, whose ruler was wise enough to separate the political from the religious post-WW1. The Muslims in time past offered a haven to dissenting Christian groups and Jews, so they have not always been so cruel.

In the century following the French Revolution and Napoleonic wars, Europe went through many demonstrations and rebellions, ultimately finishing the dominant royal houses.  With the demise of the Turkish Empire, the Middle East is suffering similar chaos. It will take an all-wise King to ultimately settle the question. When the King reigns from Zion, there will be peace between many Middle Eastern peoples. Note some Arabian tribes are mentioned as worshipping at Jerusalem in Isaiah 60.

The Muslims believe in Father Abraham, and accept Jesus as a prophet (though not Son of God). They also believe in ONE God, not the idolatrous trinity of the Church. (see Deuteronomy 6:4; Jesus accepts this in Mark 12:28-34).

Russia’s interest in Jerusalem


Russia is identifying with her past. Her interest/ interference in the Ukraine is because the Ukraine is actually ancient Russia, before it was conquered by the Turkish Empire.


Russia still has an interest in Jerusalem and the Holy sites. The Crimean war in the mid 1850’s was the result of an argument over the Holy Sites. The Orthodox Church had gradually got more control, and the Catholic Church objected and tried to get political support to regain what they regarded as their rightful dominance.


Sergei’s Court: 150 years ago, Russia bought some property in Jerusalem and the Royal ladies funded the building of accommodation for pilgrims (Sergei’s Imperial Hospice). Sold to Israel by Communist Russia in the 1960’s, Russia has bought the property back. Insisting that there is another piece they wanted returned to them, President Putin said “The Russian Government is the legal heir of the Tsars.”

The Battle over Jerusalem (Zechariah 14) will be religious as much as it will be political!





Eclipses of the sun and the moon are well known.

Blood moons occur when the sunlight reaching the moon passes through an extensive and dense layer of the earth’s atmosphere; here it becomes scattered and the resulting light we see as red.

What is unusual is when a series of four Blood Moons (known as a tetrad) occur, consecutively within a 2-year period, 2 per year. When these coincide with Jewish feasts, major political events often occur to the Jewish People. The Jewish Festivals set by God in the Hebrew Scriptures, are based on a lunar cycles of 30 days. In the last 500 years there have been only three blood moon tetrads.

The first of these occurred in 1492, when the Jews were expelled from Spain. Columbus, on his second voyage, discovered America, which became a haven for Jews. 

Israel was constituted as a nation after nearly 1,900 years on 14 May 1948. The surrounding Arab nations immediately declared war which did not stop until 1949. The tetrad Blood Moon occurred:

April 13, 1949: Passover begins

October 7, 1949: Feast of Tabernacles begins

April 2, 1950: Passover begins

September 26, 1950: Feast of Tabernacles begins


On June 10, 1967, during the Six-Day War, Jerusalem was recaptured.

April 24, 1967: Passover begins

October 18, 1967: Feast of Tabernacles begins

April 13, 1968: Passover begins

October 6, 1968: Feast of Tabernacles begins

 This year Passover began on April 15, when the Blood Moon eclipse began. This tetrad cycle will culminate in the final Blood Moon eclipse on Feast of Tabernacles in September next year.

 We await the outcome.  “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:28) The prophecy of Joel 2;28-32, quoted on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2:16-21 could well have a literal as well as symbolic significance.

Russia begins the Move South!

Russia is flexing her Imperial muscles. The Russians (known as the Rus) came from the Ukraine, thus the Ukraine is historical Russia, established in the ninth century. The Duke of Kiev in AD988 adopted the Orthodox form of Christianity from the influence of the Byzantine Empire based in Constantinople. When the Tartar-Mongols invaded in the mid 13th century, many Rus (Russians) fled to the north. 

 Russia needs the Ukraine and Crimea – warm water ports, her navy is based in Crimea, the bulk of her oil/gas lines go through, and so on. Without the Ukraine, Russia cannot be an empire, and this is precisely what she has in mind. How do we know?  Bible prophecy speaks of a time when “the prince of Rosh (Russia), Meshech and Tubal”, along with her allies, will invade the land of Israel – “into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel which had long been desolate” (Ezekiel 38). This is the time when God will take action (v18-23).

 Russia, by virtue of links with the emperors of Constantinople (the last princess married the rising tribal leader of Muscovy, thus her blood-line is in the Tsars) and the Orthodox Church, will fulfil the role of the inheritor of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium). When she occupies ancient Constantinople, the prophecy of Daniel 2 will ensure its final fulfilment. The two legs, Western Rome (the modern EU) and Eastern Rome (Russia occupying Constantinople) will then unite to invade Israel. “The King of the North … shall enter the countries, overwhelm them and pass through. He shall also enter the glorious land and many countries shall be overthrown… and he shall plant the tents of his power between the seas and the glorious holy mountain (Jerusalem)” (Daniel 11:40-45).

 The invasion of Israel will have a religious as well as a political intent. “All nations will be gathered against Jerusalem to battle” (Zechariah 14:2; Joel 3:2) as they attempt to wrest Jerusalem from Jewish control.

 This will result in a dreadful time for Israel, and result in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take control of his city, his land, and ultimately “the Lord shall be King over all the earth” (Zechariah 14:8).

 Are you ready when the Lord comes to judge the living and the dead?
