Jerusalem Day

It has been 50 years (May 24 this year according to the Hebrew calendar) since Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six-Day War in June, 1967.  It is clear now for many years already that this did not bring the “times of the Gentiles” to fulfillment. (Lk 21:24)  Jerusalem is still being trampled under foot by the Gentile powers, and East Jerusalem — the Biblical Jerusalem, where the Old City and Temple Mount are located — is still being offered as the capital of some potential Palestinian state.  Jerusalem’s peace will only come with the return of the rightful Heir to the throne of David. Until then, there is still much unrest and trouble.  Keep Jerusalem in your hearts and prayers, for the sake of the name of the Lord, who has chosen that city as His — the city of the great King!  For now, she has the spirit of Sodom and Egypt (Rev 11:8), and awaits her full redemption.

President Trump is scheduled to arrive tomorrow for a brief and historic visit.  He wants to make peace between the three major religions.  Such attempts should be wake-up bells for real believers in Jesus that we are nearing some extremely significant ‘signs of the times’, and cause us to increase our alertness in watching and praying as we carry on our Lord’s business.  The religious and political kingdoms of this world are opposed to the Kingdom of God, which is not of this world (Ps 2; Jn 18:36) — but the Day is nearing when it will come!  Praise the Lord!!

Trump Trumps! — 9 Nov 2016

They said it couldn’t be done, but he did it!  Political election surveys have become little more than a form of divination.  It really is hard to think of Donald Trump as President Trump.  But it’s great that we are not going to be saying President Clinton any more.  I still look to the coming of the rightful Heir of the ‘freed’ world, the Son of God, the Lord Messiah Yeshua!  This world is still lying under the sway of the evil one, and Israel still remains an enemy of the gospel for the Gentile’s salvation sake.  So the Millennial Kingdom has not yet dawned, nor has the night even yet settled.
