Ezekiel 38:18  And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. (all of chapter 38 is relevent at this time, I believe)

I am aware that what I believe the Lord has shown me in the past few hours may not necessarily effect the U.S. but since I live in Israel, I am very concerned and I need to make someone else aware of this.

There is a peace deal about to be signed in Washington at the White House between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain. Since we are definitely in an ‘end times’ scenario, I have looked into the “tribulation” times and see that a peace deal is set but after three and a half years it turns sour and things get very ugly. I believe that it will be shortly after this seven year tribulation or even in the midst of the last three and a half years of the tribulation period that Gog and Magog are brought to Israel for that last battle.

In looking at who Gog and Magog is, I find in 1 Chronicles 5:4-9 talks of a son of Joel named Gog who is captured and then ends up living just west of the Euphrates.

As I looked into some other sources, ie archeology, the term Magog actually means the land of Gog. This actually turns out to be the Islamic people of present day Iraq.

I am beginning to think that this “peace deal” is nothing more than a ruse for Islam to get Israel to let its guard down in order to finally invade and destroy. Of course we know that our God has the upper hand but all the process will be very ugly.

I will appreciate any comments if anyone is reading this.

“The Sandbox”

Psalm 53:1a-2 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. ….. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

In the middle of the night I was awakened and felt that the Lord was speaking to me about all that He had created. I saw in my mind, children playing in a sandbox. As children, all they knew was that their parents had brought them there to play for a while. They were not thinking, where did all this sand come from or what is this stuff we are playing in, or even, why are we here?. I felt that such is the world we live in, there is so very much that we do not know or even think about. But, for some of us, there are questions like, what is gravity or where did all the laws of nature come from or who taught the birds to fly? There must be an underlying cause or event or something that answers all these questions. And, the answer is, there was a creator, there was an underlying cause for all the effects we see.

I have always been facinated with ‘time’. We just live in it, we cannot change it except psychologically, if I am bored with the circumstances, time seems to pass so very slowly or if I am enjoying the event, time seems to slip by so quickly. It is quite obvious that every second passed by at the same rate in both situations, the only thing that changed was my awareness.

As I thought on this, in the middle of the night, Psalm 53 came to mind, ‘The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.’ The bible in the first couple of chapters lays it all out and the rest of the book tells us how to relate to that Creator and all He has given us to live in. So, where did gravity or inertia or any other of the natural forces initiate? There is a God, a Creator who lives outside of time and even in another dimension of existance that is the cause and effect.

In Isaiah 55:8 states, ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.’’ It says in Genesis, on day four, He created the sun and the moon and all the heavenly host, that puts Him way above any of my understanding. He flung all the stars out there, knowing each one by name and adjusted all their properties and places in the universe so that it all works together properly. (Our illustrius scientist have stated that the earth must be some 4.3 billion years old because of the ength of time it takes for the light of the furthest star to reach us.) Hogwash, my Creator God did it all on day four of Creation. He has far more intellagence that all of the great minds could ever come up with.

These middle of the night thoughts have put my God far, far beyond my wildest imagination.

Solar Power

Proverbs 1:28b-30 They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord, they would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.
As I listen to the news and read all that is going on in the world, the word ‘hate’ resonated within me as something that is so very foreign to everyone, it is something that must be learned as it is not part of anyone’s original makeup. I do not believe that any baby that comes into the world has this terrible quality within them, it is a learned response. “Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord,” This is what all the violence in the world boils down to in my estimation. When God, the Creator is taken out of the picture, this is what you get, a world full of trouble. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
The day is coming very shortly when all will be revealed in the heart and I fear for all those who have not God.
