Man’s Hidden Witnesses: Recording Properties in All Things

The-Entrance-of-our-Lord-Into-Jerusalem        In this age of television re-runs; film-wash technology that allows fresh showings of 90-year old WWI actions; camcorders, cell phone photographs, and inter-stellar space cameras––Nature’s ability to record man’s every action should come as no surprise.

Surely every human word and action is copied on rocks, trees, plaster board, paint, plastic, etc. Consider Joshua’s account of Nature’s recording system:  “So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.

“And Joshua wrote these words in The Book of The Law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of The LORD. And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of The LORD which He spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God (24: 25-27).”

Note Joshua’s points:  1) The stone is a witness of a covenant agreement between Joshua and the people of Shechem that they would put away all false idols and only serve The LORD Their God––they gave their word; 2) The stone hears and records those words to be replayed at God’s will; 3) A stone, an oak tree and a sanctuary also preserved this binding agreement with The Word of God.

Obviously then, if the people of Shechem return to worship idols of silver, gold, wood and stone, and other wretched carvings they would bow to––their very idols will also bear testimony against them on the coming Great Day of Judgment.

As he waits for God ’s rebuke of his complains about his oppressor, Habakkuk hears that precious promise about righteous living: “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith (2:4). The he also hears God’s condemnation of that oppressor:

“Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul.  For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it (2: 9-11).” No, that is not useless, meaningless poetic language. The Christian God God instructed Moses to speak to the rock in Numbersof Abraham’s children does not do, say or write useless things.

Moreover, God instructed Moses to speak to the rock in Numbers chapter 20, commanding it to give water. But Moses’ human logic taught that any rock with water in it had to be smashed instead. That mistaken human logic stopped Moses from entering The Promised Land.

Human logic does not understand The LORD Jesus speaking to wind, rain and other material objects. Or His rebuke of people wanting to silence those worshiping Him: “And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out (Luke 19: 14).”

It is no wonder then that The LORD Jesus warned in Christian non-fiction prophecy books: “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment (Matthew 12: 36).” Those words are recorded. Note the symbolism: “idle” and “idol”: dangerous words!

The Prophetic Theology of ISIS Explains Its Murderous Devotion

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 9:00 AM
February 18, 2015

Isis-Murderers              Is it possible that several hard working journalists know more about what motivates fighting ISIS rebels than the leaders of  several nations now waging air warfare against this group that seems so outrageously devoted to beheadings, death-burnings, and crucifixions of professing Christians?

As Peter Bergen explains in ‘Why Does ISIS Keep Making Enemies?’: “The mistake some make when viewing ISIS is to see it as a rational actor. Instead, as it’s magazine [‘Dabiq’] documents, its ideology is that of an apocalyptic cult that believes that we are living in the end times and that ISIS’ actions are hastening the moment when this will happen.

“When American aid worker Peter Kassig was murdered by ISIS in November, ‘Jihadi John’––the masked British murderer who has appeared in so many ISIS videos––said of Kassig: “We bury the first crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the rest of your armies to arrive.  In other words, ISIS wants a Western ground force to invade Syria, as that will confirm the prophecy about Dabiq.”

Bergen quotes ‘ISIS: The State of Terror’ by Jessica Stern an J.M. Berger, a new work hitting book stores next month, to explain that like other “violent apocalyptic groups, [ISIS members] tend to see themselves as participating in a cosmic war between good and evil, in which moral rules do not apply.” Therefore, they feel perfectly justified in killing anyone who doesn’t share their beliefs.

In the same vein, in his article ‘What ISIS Really Wants,’ Graeme Wood writes in ‘The Atlantic’: “The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse.”

Wood explains U.S. politicians, and its military, know little about prophetic theology of ISIS, including its disconnection from al Qaeda in Arabia, Osama Bin Ladin, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other rebel groups: “The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior.”

That prophetic theology is steeped in definitions of the Africa-Asia division of the Roman Empire, notIsis-Killings the European one.  That theology controls decisions on their geographical war moves. And ISIS zeal is fed by the spirit of the coming anti-Christ, whom they serve and who will lead them into slaughtering billions more.

As the world slides in ignorance into World War III, IV V, etc. an additional problem is that European and American leaders, some of whom claim to represent Christian nations, do not seem to know Bible prophecies about these same pre-war days, the Empire, geography, war plans, etc. and how these battles can be won.

What’s worse, most believers in those nations––apparently including their pastors, who, if they know prophetic truth, seldom teach it––don’t seem to know what the Bible says about these end times. If they do know, then they are in denial that the last “end time” is here now in 2015!  Surely axis and allies history world war has no account of any nation as unprepared for world war as this one.

What Prophecies to Expect Fulfillment in 2015

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 0:18 AM
February 5, 2015

EU puzzle       One of the reasons this blogger did not care to summarize 2014 is that the year was too full of prophetic hints that the end of mankind’s time on earth is so very near the end. Most prophets in pulpits, on-line and on television, who in any way try to follow God’s leadings know so. Unfortunately, some get it wrong.

According to beforeitsnews.com, and John Shorey, author of ‘Unlocking the Mystery of The Book of Revelation: The Unveiling of What Was Sealed,’ in Luke 21: The LORD’s promise to return immediately after a catastrophic event. “Soon” should be interpreted as: “at once, immediately, before long, speedily, willingly and [perhaps most important} before the usual time.”

Associates of that site also use the Jewish term Shemitah, or blood moons, to predict The LORD’s return as being no later than 2015 or 2016, including translations of those words in Luke 21 and Acts 2, to indicate that mankind can either hasten or prolong that return. While Acts 2 mentions a blood moon, it also includes terms blood, fire and vapor of smoke, for which they give no explanation.

Most those wordings are not in the King James Version. The gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke were generally directed towards Jewish audiences. Thus, they speak of the persecutions that will befall Jews after the Rapture, mentioning the temple in Jerusalem (not yet built).  Only the gospel of John is considered universal. The LORD’s direction in that gospel simply promises that believers will be persecuted before His return (16: 1-4) as is the case in parts of the world today.

T.V. evangelist Jim Baker sets forth Dave Wilkinson’s book, ‘Racing Towards Judgment,’ to argue that America is Mystery Babylon. He, Shorey and beforeitsnews.com further posit that America will be divided in half by a great earthquake that will forever separate then devastated Western states from the East. It is true that either America and Israel withhold allegiance, or America would have to be incapacitated for Israel to be struck down, but the Bible does not specify.

Those who want to know about prophecy in 2015 should keep an eye on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its soon attempt to take over other former Soviet nations. They should also watch Greece continue to pull away from the European Union.  It will be followed by England and others to the EU’s destruction.

Muslims gradual take-over of Europe is a fast growing factor, as recent attacks in France indicate. Soon their growth, declines of Christianity in Europe, and vacillation in the Catholic Church will comprise ‘The Holy Roman Empire’.

Most reliable is Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible, and Finis Dake’s additional books, especially theotherislamicbomb12_xlarge‘Revelation Expounded: Eternal Mysteries Simplified.’ His Biblically-based conclusions prove that the United States is not Mystery Babylon. Instead the Pope’s Catholic Church is that mystery.

Moreover, Rev. Dake uses Biblical texts to identify Literal Babylon as Iraq, the capital from which Syrian-born anti-Christ will rule.  Thus, anyone can see prophecy come to life as murderous ISIS rebels now control vast regions of Iraq and Syria and claim to have now made them one new nation.

Before He arose to the heavens The LORD Jesus told believers: “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which The Father hath put in His own power (Acts 1: 7).” However, those paying close attention to their used Christian Bibles will have much better ideas than other speculations not based on God’s Word!
