The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

End Times News and Gospel Message 15 Aug 14

"Those three boys... saved the nation."

That's how Isaac Herzog, the leader of the opposition in Israel's Knesset, remembered the tragic kidnapping and murders of three Israeli teenaged boys a couple of months ago.

Had they not been kidnapped, hastily murdered and sloppily buried, and their graves quickly discovered by Israel, unmitigated disaster could even now be lurking in Israel's future.

You see, Hamas was planning a daring invasion of Israel on Rosh Hoshanna. On September 24, the eve of the Jewish New Year, they intended to flood southern Israel with thousands of Hamas fighters. These heavily armed invaders were to enter Israel through dozens of tunnels under cover of darkness. As day dawned and shops and schools filled up in the Israeli towns and villages just outside the Gaza Strip, all hell would break loose.

First, massive explosives already in place under Israeli kindergartens and schools would be detonated. Amid the mass hysteria and chaos, the Hamas fighters would strike, killing as many innocent civilians and children as possible.

Then, before the IDF could respond, they would retreat through the tunnels back into Gaza, taking with them maybe hundreds of hostages that would be held for ransom and leverage.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the discovery of this Hamas plan with his cabinet, he noted that the number of Israeli casualties could well have surpassed the 2,200 who died in the 1973 Yom Kippur war.

Other experts and analysts believe the death toll would have exceeded 10,000 Israelis.

But because those three boys were kidnapped, then hastily murdered once their kidnappers realized one of them had been able to telephone the police, the Hamas invasion plan was revealed.

This brutal tragedy sparked "Operation Protective Edge," the IDF entry into Gaza to stop the rocket barrages and punish Hamas for the murders. That's when Israel discovered the full extent of the vast network of tunnels that Hamas has been able to construct beneath Gaza over the last several years.

Israeli television news reports have suggested that there are as many as 5,000 tunnels crisscrossing the Gaza Strip. They enable Hamas forces to move with impunity almost anywhere they wish. They store their arsenals and house their command centers there.

The Israelis call it "the city under the city."

The IDF also discovered as many as 40 highly fortified tunnels that open in multiple places inside Israel. It is through those "terror tunnels" that Hamas intended to invade Israel in September.

The horrible, brutal deaths of those three young boys, one of them an American, may truly have saved Israel. Some have suggested that the entire incident, which allowed the Hamas plan to be discovered, is a miracle.

I can't say that I disagree, simply because Israel's history is nothing more than miracle upon miracle upon miracle. From its miraculous birth to its miraculous rebirth to its miraculous survival against all odds, Israel is truly a miracle nation.

But a word of warning, Israel is not out of the woods by any means. An even greater menace than Hamas is lurking just beyond Israel's northern border. So continue to pray earnestly for God's continued protection of Israel. His people have never been in more danger than they are at this moment. 

Muslim men believe women are toys.

Apart from the deficiencies of the woman, she also has ten ‘awrat. The Encyclopedia of Islam defines ‘awrah as pudendum, that is “the external genitals, especially of the female. [Latin pudendum (literally) a thing to be ashamed of]“26 Ali reported the Prophet saying: ‘Women have ten ‘awrat. When she gets married, the husband covers one, and when she dies the grave covers the ten.”
According to the following Hadith, women not only have ten ‘awrat, but the woman herself is perceived as ‘awrah:
The woman is ‘awrah. When she goes outside (the house), the devil welcomes.
This Hadith is classed as ‘Sahih’; that is, sound or faultless. So going outside the house is a form of exposure of the ‘awrah; a thing that delights the devil. This is why women are discouraged from going outside the house, even to pray in the mosque, as the following Hadith indicates. A woman is closest to God’s face, if she is found in the core of her house. And the prayer of the woman in the house is better than her prayer in the mosque.” This Hadith is classed as ‘Hassan’; that is, approved.
Dr. Buti, a modern scholar said: The woman is a toy. Whoever takes her let him care for her (or do not lose her).
Muslim teachers unanimously agreed in every generation that the woman should cover all her body except her hands and face, that is without any make up, from strangers.’ The followers of Hanbal and some followers of Shafil consider even the hand and the face to be ‘awrah, and therefore should be covered.’ And those who allow the woman to show her hand and face (the Malikiyah and Hanafiyah) do so with the provision that make up will not be used. But if the woman’s face is naturally beautiful, then she must cover her face for fear of being a temptation to men.”
Dr. Buti gives the reason behind the wearing of the Hijab:
Allah, the most high, decreed that the woman should be veiled. He did so in protecting the chastity of the men who might see her, and not in protection of the chastity of the woman from the eyes of those who look at her.”
The previously mentioned deficiencies show the woman’s inadequacy as a companion for man. Her deficiency in intelligence and religion prevent her from exchanging secular or sacred ideas or participating in religious or related spheres. To what level do these deficiencies reduce the woman?
‘Omar [one of the Khalifs] was once talking when his wife interjected, so he said to her: ‘You are a toy; if you are needed we will call you.’” 
And ‘Amru Bin al-’Aas, also a Khalif, said: “Women are toys, so choose.””
This was not just ‘Amru Bin al-’Aas and ‘Omar’s opinions. Muhammad himself said:

The belief that a woman is a toy is of vital importance for the spiritual well being of a man. For according to the great philosopher Ghazali:
In the company of women, looking at them, and playing with them, the soul is refreshed, the heart is rested, and the man is strengthened to the worship of God…this is why God said: ‘That he might rest in her.’ (Quran 7: 189)

Tens of thousands of churches have a committed belief in the importance of standing with Israel and blessing the Jewish people. The verse most often referred to as their biblical mandate is Genesis 12:3 in which God tells Abraham “I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
Since the birth of the State of Israel in 1948 the theological error known as Replacement Theology has battled within the Church with the theology of Christian Zionism. Christian Zionists understand the importance of God’s everlasting covenant with Abraham and the nation he would birth.
However, just as the term “Zionism” has been turned into a negative word by Israel’s enemies, so “Christian Zionism” is under attack and often misrepresented in the media, the Church and in some public discourse. 

Christian Zionists

"Zionism, is the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, advocated, from its inception, tangible as well as spiritual aims. Jews of all persuasions, left and right, religious and secular, joined to form the Zionist movement and worked together toward these goals. Disagreements led to rifts, but ultimately, the common goal of a Jewish state in its ancient homeland was attained. The term "Zionism" was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum." (Jewish Virtual Library).
If Zionism is the belief in the Jewish people's right to return to their homeland, then a Christian Zionist should simply be defined as a Christian who supports the Jewish people's right to return to their homeland. Under this broad and simple definition, many Christians would qualify no matter what their reasons are for this support. Just as Jews of all persuasions formed the Zionist movement then Christians of all persuasion can also fall within this broad definition of a Christian Zionist.
For this very reason, a myriad of answers may be given by a Christian when questioned about their support of Israel. Answers can include political, historical, and/or religious reasons.

Theology of Christian Zionism

The actual theology of Christian Zionism, also known as Biblical Zionism, supports the right of the Jewish people to return to their homeland on scriptural grounds. The biblical foundation for Christian Zionism is found in God's Covenant with Abraham. It was in this covenant that God chose Abraham to birth a nation through which He could redeem the world, and to do this He bequeathed them a land on which to exist as this chosen nation.
Christian Zionism is confirmed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. The major and minor prophets consistently confirmed this national calling on Israel, promised her future restoration to the land after a period of exile, and spoke of her spiritual renewal and redemption bringing light to the world.
Christian Zionism differs with Replacement Theology which teaches that the special relationship that Israel had with her God in terms of her national destiny and her national homeland has been lost because of her rejection of Jesus as Messiah, and therefore the Church has become the new Israel. The Church has then inherited all the blessings promised to Israel but the judgments and curses still conveniently remain over the Jewish people.
Instead, Christian Zionism teaches from the scriptures that God's covenant with Abraham is still valid today. There remains a national destiny over the Jewish people and her national homeland is her everlasting possession in fulfillment of God's plans and purposes for her. The New Testament scriptures not only affirm the Abrahamic covenant, but they confirm the historical mission of Israel and that Israel's gifts and calling are irrevocable.

Thus, Christian Zionism is not based on prophecy or end-time events. Most Christian Zionists would agree, however, that Israel's reemergence on the world's scene, in fulfillment of God's promises to her, indicate that other biblically-predicted events will follow.

satan's kingdom #5 currently the Eurasian Economic Union

President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, 14 Aug 14, that Russia should aim to sell its oil and gas for Rubles globally because the dollar monopoly in energy trade was damaging Russia's economy. 'We should act carefully. At the moment we are trying to agree with some countries to trade in national currencies', Putin said during a visit to the Crimea region, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine earlier this year.
On the surface, one might think that President Putin of Russia is simply proposing that Russia should use any currency other than the American Dollar to buy and sell energy products. But, the fact of the matter is that Russia is the leader of Kingdom #5 -- Eurasian Economic Union -- and that new conglomerate has its own currency, the "Altyn.
The time needed to fully mature the Altyn is expected to take 11 years; but, Western sanctions could cut that time down to as few as three years. Now you know the real purpose of these sanctions.
President Putin is just taking a first small step toward selling energy products in a currency other than the American Dollar. He might use the Russian Ruble in the short term, or might use another established currency. But, the ultimate aim is to eventually establish the Altyn currency as the means to buy and sell within the Eurasian Economic Union!
In the meantime, the Dollar must be gradually brought down in international trade, because the North American Union beckons, and that Kingdom #1 will need a currency other than the Dollar. The current American Dollar will not collapse, but it will be gradually reduced in value and in international acceptance.

That is the Illuminati Plan.

Coffee chain Starbucks has plenty of stores across the world, and plenty in Muslim nations. But one country where they proudly will not operate is in the nation of Israel. Starbucks closed all their stores over 11 years ago in the Holy Land, and today’s announcement effectively reveals they are boycotting Israel.
Wouldn’t a steaming-hot cup of White Castle, Crystal or Dunkin Donuts coffee taste so wonderfully good right about now?

The coffee chain has issued a statement announcing that neither Starbucks nor CEO Howard Schultz “provides financial support to Israel,” or to its army, in the wake of what Starbucks called “false rumors.”

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. – Psalm 122:6
And, I find it interesting that fewer and fewer Christians are interested in praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
Is it any wonder that we no longer prosper?
As we draw closer and closer to the end of this age, fewer and fewer American Christians are interested in the peace of Jerusalem. And, as Christians turn their back on Jerusalem, God has turned His back on us. And, God has decreed that Jerusalem will be a weight that will destroy everyone that tries to carry it away.

Just as I have seen American Christianity drift further and further away from the truth, I have also seen American Christians drift further and further from Israel.
It is hard to believe that American Christians have fallen so far. We have sold our souls and are reaping the result, with a divorce and abortion rate almost as great as non-Christians. Our pastors preach pablum and watch pornography. Our congregations are more interested in activities for their kids, than hearing the truth.
It’s no wonder that Satan and his lies find such a comfortable home in mega-church building projects – and in the hearts of cold Christians.
I am ashamed of those of you who call Christ your own, yet vilify the desperate State of Israel.
Don’t you know that Jesus set Jerusalem as the marker for the Last Days?
I am mystified that so few know what time it is.
Jesus said this in Luke:
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. – Luke 21:26
Those words of Jesus were fulfilled on June 7th, 1967. The time of the Gentiles is over. Fulfilled.
What an amazing thing – that we would dare to resist God’s work at the end of history. It’s as if the Book of Ezekiel and Zechariah ceased to exist. We’ve chosen the side of Allah and those who love death, over the work that God is doing in the hearts of Israelis.
What a shameful thing.
And, we have gone on to burden ourselves with Jerusalem, trying to take it away from her rightful owner, and give it to those who wash their hands in the blood of Christians.
Zechariah talked about that burden here:
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. – Zechariah 12:3
With all the UN resolutions surrounding Jerusalem and Israel, you would think that the Jewish state would be the largest in the world, with Jerusalem the top city in the world.
Doesn’t that tell you something?
How dare we turn our backs on the work of God. How DARE we!
Twenty eight% of the Bible speaks about the Last Days, and most of it deals with Israel, in one form or another. For a closer look at Israel in Last Days prophecy, go here:
Those of you with a ‘yes but’ – blaming the suffering of the Palestinians on Israel – your ignorance of history is pathetic. Those of you who claim Israel’s heritage and End Times promises for yourselves, you are worse than pathetic. You have turned towards outright defiance of God’s work.
Yes, they are unsaved, and therefore pagan – by definition. But, God’s promise to save them still stands, and there are those of us who would dare to resist God, as He fulfills that commitment.
Were we not sinful and evil before we were saved?
Yet we demand of them, more than we expect of ourselves.
For a reason that I do not understand, God placed His name and His focus on a tiny patch of ground upon a low hill, and called it Jerusalem. He measured the time of salvation for the Gentiles in terms of it, and He gave it to His friend Abraham and his descendants. He then sent His only Son to die for us there – and only there.
The Last Days began on that rocky hilltop, and they will end there. The question is about yourself.
Are you going to be ready, when the end comes?
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
…they shall prosper that love thee.
