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 28 May 2014

Bnei Menashe get married in Israel
Last Thursday (May 22nd), another group of 40 Bnei Menashe from India were welcomed to Israel. Their arrival at Ben-Gurion Airport was an emotional moment for everyone, but none more so than Edna Valphei, who was reunited with her fiancé, Gamliel, after seven long years of separation.
The couple got engaged in Manipur, in northeast India, in 2007, and Gamliel came to Israel thinking Edna would soon follow and they could get married once she arrived. But then the Indian and Israeli governments each took measures that halted the return of the Bnei Menashe and the two were separated until now. After a long hug and many joyful tears, Gamliel said he felt like the Patriarch Jacob, who had waited many long years to marry Rachel. Both assured their love for each other never waned. "They spoke to each other by phone every night," her brother affirmed.
"And every day, too," Edna chimed in.

Bnei Menashe children now in Israel 
"All the Bnei Menashe flights are like this, with very moving human stories of people dreaming to come home to Israel and facing hardships along the way," said Michael Freund, director of Shavei Israel, who is spearheading the effort to bring them home. "In this group, there is also a woman seeing her brother and sister for the first time in 21 years."
International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) was finally able to convince the Israeli cabinet to resume the Aliyah of the Bnei Menashe in 2102 and some 430 have arrived over the past 18 months on flights sponsored by the ICEJ. Thursday's flight was the first of a new group of 250 more Bnei Menashe who will be arriving by mid-June with ICEJ support. Another 500 are expected by the end of this year.
Currently, there are still 7,000 members of the community waiting in India to re-unite with family, faith, and homeland after 2700 years of exile.
The Bnei Menashe, or "sons of Manasseh", claim descent from one of the lost tribes of Israel. Their tradition holds that their ancestors were exiled from the Land of Israel by the Assyrian Empire some 27 centuries ago and they wandered throughout the Orient until they reached what is now northeast India, between Burma and Bangladesh.
Some of the first Westerns to encounter the Bnei Menashe in modern times were British missionaries more than 100 years ago. They were surprised at their belief in the one true God, whom they referred to as "Yah". They also had a communal ban on pork and were familiar with biblical stories even though their holy books had been taken and burned long ago.
"Despite their wanderings for so many centuries, the Bnei Menashe never forgot who they are and where they came from. And they never stopped dreaming of one day returning to Zion," insists Freund of ICEJ.
"They kept the Sabbath, they kept kosher, they kept the laws of family purity, they kept faith alive in their hearts, and they held firmly onto that dream. And now I believe their faithfulness is being rewarded as God is gathering them in," Freund adds.
Based on such evidence, the Chief Rabbinate of Israel officially recognized the Bnei Menashe community as descendants of Israel a decade ago.
With the help of Christians worldwide, more than 2,200 Bnei Menashe are now living in Israel. But the 7,000 remaining in India are still waiting for their chance to come. There are more families separated by time and distance, longing to reunite in Israel.

The Bnei Menashe have a very strong spiritual drawing back to their ancient homeland that simply will not be denied. 

When the U.S. military “liberates” a nation, shouldn’t it result in more liberty, freedom and peace for the people living there?
Instead, we find just the opposite. In fact, in every single case since 9/11, when the U.S. military has “liberated” a nation it has resulted in the persecution of Christians in that country becoming much worse.This is because our government and our military are tools of the Illuminati. If we truly wanted to liberate Iraq, Afghanistan, Syra, Tunisia and Libya we would have given these nations a U.S. style Constitution.

In areas where we spent hundreds of billions of dollars and where thousands of precious American lives were sacrificed, churches are regularly being bombed, Christians are being brutally beheaded, and laws have been passed to make it illegal for a Muslim to convert to Christianity. 

If we were not even able to provide the most basic of liberties and freedoms to the people living in those nations, what in the world did we actually accomplish by “liberating” them?

Just look at what has happened in Afghanistan. We have been at war in Afghanistan for more than a dozen years, and yet things are so bad for Christians in that country at this point that there is not a single church left.

The supposedly “moderate” Karzai government installed by the U.S. upholds many of the draconian laws enforced by the Taliban—including the apostasy law, fiercely persecuting those who seek to convert to Christianity—and, in 2011, under U.S. auspices, it destroyed Afghanistan’s last Christian church.

We find a similar story in Iraq. It is estimated that before the invasion, there were up to 2 million Christians living in Iraq. Now that number is down to less than 450,000, and it is falling fast.

In fact, things are so dire for Iraq’s Christian community that some Iraqi Christian leaders are warning that Christians may soon become “extinct” in that nation…

As the mass exodus of Iraq’s Christians continues, so does the call for ending the plight of those who have remained. Like Iraq’s ancient Jewish community before them, one of the world’s oldest Christian communities may soon cease to exist.

The disappearance of Iraq’s religious minorities has been a troubling trend since the US-led invasion in 2003, and it has threatened to end the cultural diversity of Iraq. As the violence in the country spikes and religious intolerance grows, many Christians, Yazidis, Mandaeans and other minority community members are leaving the country.

Last week, the head of the Iraqi Catholic Church sent a chilling warning that Iraq’s 2,000-year-old Christian community is on the brink of extinction as new waves of Christians take the journey of exodus.

It is estimated that the Iraq war cost U.S. taxpayers more than 2 trillion dollars.

We spent more than a million dollars on one soccer field alone (which has now turned to dust).

In the end, what did we actually accomplish?

The Obama administration likes to brag about how it got rid of Qaddafi and “liberated” Libya, but now al-Qaeda is in control of much of the country and things are much worse for Christians than ever before…

Ever since U.S.-backed, al-Qaeda-linked terrorists overthrew Qaddafi, Christians—including Americans—have indeed suffered extreme persecution. Churches have been bombed; Christians have been tortured and killed (including for refusing to convert); and nuns have been threatened.

In Syria, the Obama administration is shamelessly allying with radical al-Qaeda jihadists in a desperate attempt to overthrow the Assad regime.

As these jihadists torture, behead and even crucify Christian believers, the mainstream media in the United States is virtually silent about it.

Why is the media being so quiet?

Well, because exposing what is going on would make the Obama administration look bad and the “lame stream” media is an arm of the illuminati. .

Those carrying out this persecution of Christians in Syria are being directly funded and aided by the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia. 

And of course it is not just in the Middle East where this kind of persecution of Christians is taking place.

While Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the State Department refused to label Boko Haram as a terrorist organization.

But now the whole world is talking about Boko Haram. This group has attacked more than 700 churches in Nigeria over the past seven years, and this has resulted in a massive exodus of Christians from northern Nigeria to southern Nigeria…

Christian groups estimate that up to a quarter of the 4,000 people killed by Boko Haram since 2009 have been Christians, and more than 700 churches have been attacked in the last seven years alone, according to the Nigerian Catholic Bishop’s Conference. Across the troubled north-east, many Christian neighbourhoods are now ghost towns as tens of thousands of residents flee south. It is one of the biggest Christian exoduses of the century, yet largely unremarked outside of Nigeria.

It is hard to put into words how brutal Boko Haram can be. As a recent article in the Telegraph described, the persecution of Christians in northern Nigeria by Boko Haram has been absolutely relentless…

Arriving at St Joseph’s church in the Nigerian town of Gashua, Father John Bakeni knew he was taking on a tough posting. A settlement near the northern border with Niger, his new parish was smack in the heart of Boko Haram territory, and in the previous three years, all but a fraction of its 3,000-strong Christian minority had fled.

Sent by his bishop to show that the diocese had not deserted the town, he spent much of the following year trying to reassure the 200 remaining parishioners. But nearly every time he ventured from his rectory, a reminder would await him of the difficulty of his mission.

“Several times a week I would find a dead animal had been thrown in the compound, usually a chicken, goat or sheep, but sometimes dead cats too,” said Fr Bakeni, 38. “Stones would get thrown at the church almost every day, and sometimes also people would bang the gates and shout: ‘Infidel, we are going to kill you.’

So why has the Obama administration been so hesitant to speak out against Boko Haram until now?

In fact, although most Americans do not realize this, the Obama administration has been quite supportive of Boko Haram in the past. Obama even actually threatened the Nigerian government with economic sanctions in 2013 in an attempt to keep them from cracking down on Boko Haram.

What in the world was the Obama administration thinking?

Whose side are they on anyway?

Our government is on the side of the Illuminati and its strategy is to eradicate Christians.If you love liberty and freedom, you should be deeply troubled by the spread of groups such as Boko Haram.

Just look at what is happening in another part of Africa where jihadists have gained control. In Sudan, a pregnant woman was recently sentenced to death by hanging for marrying a Christian man…

A Sudanese woman doctor who married a Christian man and who was convicted earlier this week on charges of “apostasy” was sentenced to death on Thursday, judicial officials said.

According to the Sudanese officials, 26-year-old Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim, was convicted on Sunday and given four days to repent and escape death. She was sentenced after that grace period expired, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

The BBC reported the woman’s death by hanging will not be carried out until two years after the birth of her child.

This kind of tyranny should not be tolerated in today’s world.

But instead, the U.S. government seems to be helping to spread it.

Pope in white meets with Abbas in Black

Time Magazine Online reported on May 25, 2014 that Pope Francis stopped his motorcade between scheduled events in Bethlehem on Sunday to pray before the massive concrete separation barrier that divides the Palestinian city from Israel. The surprise stop was the latest signal that the Pope backs Palestine as a sovereign state. In a speech earlier on Sunday the Pope called Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas a “man of peace” after paying him a courtesy visit, and referred to the Vatican’s good relations with the state of Palestine.”
Referring to the rogue Islamic PA as the "state of Palestine" is not only historically worthless, but the Pope came perilously close to declaring a Palestinian State. This closely resembles a critically important prophecy. Listen to what God says in the Bible: "And He (God) will stretch over it (Edom) a measuring line of confusion and the plummet stones of chaos over its nobles. They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there." Isaiah 34:11-12 I repeat, "They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there".
When you hear this proclamation of a Palestinian State, know that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled, know that nothing will come of it, and know that the final annihilating war of the House of Edom, the Palestinians, is close at hand.
Just to make sure no one missed the Pontiff's message when he "prayed" at the separation wall, a highly ranked Cardinal spoke out boldly.
In the most direct statement yet by a senior church official about the significance of Francis’ surprise moment of prayer on Sunday at the barrier between Israel and the West Bank, Cardinal Edwin O’Brien told the Globe on Monday that it amounted to an endorsement of the Palestinian cause. “The pope acknowledged the state of Palestine on this trip, and issued a strong call for a two-state solution”, he said. “The wall symbolizes everything that stands in contradiction to that.”
Why did Israel build separation walls throughout their tiny land? They built these walls to separate the Palestinian people from Jewish people. And why would they want to do this? Because Palestinian suicide bombers were freely crossing into Jewish territory and blowing up innocent babies, children, teenagers, women and old men.
In one grievous murder, Palestinian terrorists sneaked into a Jewish home in a Jewish village and murdered everyone in the house, including a tiny baby in a crib, whom they knifed to death. Since erecting these walls, Israel has reduced the amount of murders of their people dramatically. Palestinian hatred for the Jew brought these walls upon themselves.

"For more than two years a small group of women have been attempting to recreate the veil that separated the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem.  The women of the veil chamber, as they call themselves, have founded a little workshop in the biblical Samarian community of Shiloh that is filled with weaving devices and wool. Their attempt to weave the veil is in accordance with God’s instruction in the book of Exodus 26:31: “you shall make a veil woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen. It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim”.
Why are these women dedicating themselves to this monumental endeavor? Learning how to weave the veil is another way of preparing for the day the Temple will be rebuilt.
Messianic expectation continues to sweep tiny Israel. People are trembling in their spirit over the anticipated appearance of the Jewish Messiah, a man whom the Bible has declared to be Antichrist. Remember, the next man who steps foot on the land of Israel, declaring himself to be the Jewish Messiah, will be Antichrist.
Remember Yeshua will not step foot on the Mount of Olives until the seven-year Tribulation Period has ended.

When Jesus comes for His church in the rapture, He will appear in the air.
Also consider the following scriptures: "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease..." (Daniel 9:27)
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place..." (Matthew 24: 15)
Since Jesus already predicted the complete destruction of the Temple in verses 1-2, the Temple has to be rebuilt for Antichrist to stand in the holy place!
What did Jesus tell His Christians when they saw prophesied events taking place?
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."(Luke 21:28)

The Illuminati Plan is very ecumenical when calling for the Pope to declare all world's religions to be one and the Pope will be the leader of the One World religion.
Per Illuminati insiders, at the proper moment in history, the Pope will visit the combined Jewish, Christian and Muslim sector of Jerusalem to announce that all religions should be combined into one. This action will then finally break the Middle East logjam. Then, and only then, will it be possible to build a combination Temple, Church and Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Illuminati plan foresees that the Pope will use Ecumenism to announce that all religions are now one.
On 27 May 2014 Pope Francis continued his diplomatic initiative to re-vitalize the stalled Middle East peace process with a hugely symbolic gesture beside one of Judaism's holiest sites. Standing in front of the Western Wall, the Pontiff hugged his two friends, Argentine Rabbi Abraham Skorka and leader of the South American country's Muslim Community, Omar Abboud. Both men were part of the inter-faith delegation.

Notice how the wording news story hits at the heart of the Illuminati plan.
"revitalize the stalled Middle East peace process" - Plan called for the Pope to "finally break the Middle East logjam" by his Ecumenical actions.
"hugely symbolic gesture beside one of Judaism's holiest sites. Standing in front of the Western Wall, the Pontiff hugged his two friends, Argentine Rabbi Abraham Skorka and leader of the South American country's Muslim Community, Omar Abboud. Both men were part of the inter-faith delegation."
The Illuminati plan calls for the Pope to form an Ecumenical basis by uniting the world's monotheistic religions -- "Jewish, Christian and Muslim". In fact, this Plan calls for setting aside a portion of Jerusalem for a monotheistic sector on which a future combination Temple, Church and Mosque will be built!
Therefore, this historically unique visit to the Holy Land by Pope Francis I set the stage for the next part of the plan: declare a section in Jerusalem to be dedicated to a combination Jewish, Christian and Muslim mosque.
What does God say in the Bible? "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." (Rev 13:11)
The second beast is the religious False Prophet who will serve Antichrist and perform all the same occult miracles as Antichrist. This beast will be the Roman Catholic (RC) Pope. When Pope Francis I carried out his trip and said the things he did, he is identifying himself as the future False Prophet!
Israel Today reported on May 26, 2014 that the Pope announced that “in the footsteps of my predecessors, I have come as a pilgrim to the Holy Land, rich in history and home to the principal events in the origin and growth of the three great monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam."

The current Pope is ready and waiting for the appearance of The Christ. This acknowledgement also points to the RC Pope as the False Prophet because the New World Order religion is being paved by the Ecumenical Movement, which is being spear-headed by the Pope. 

Supercell in the state of Wyoming - Can you imagine what it will be like when Yeshua returns?

As you can see, Pope Francis I is wearing all white while King Abdullah is wearing black or dark blue. The Illuminati is still using this pagan religious tradition of Zoroastrianism! What is this, you might ask?
"... in February, 1997, Netanyahu and his wife, Sarah, traveled to the Vatican, where, dressed in black, they met with the Pope, who was, of course, dressed in white (another Zoroastrian contrast)." Tim Cohen, Antichrist and A Cup of Tea, Prophecy House, Inc., 1998, p. 411.
What on earth does Tim Cohen mean when he states that it is "Zoroastrian contrast" for the Pope to be dressed in white while his visitors are dressed in black?
In Black Magick Witchcraft, the color white is considered the preeminent color. Since the color, white, is comprised of all colors, and black is a lack of color, white is considered most powerful; black must give way to white. Further, white is considered to be inherently based in the spiritual, since white is the color worn by Zarathustra, the founder of the pagan religion of Zoroaster, and quite possibly, the precursor to Antichrist. In late 1996, I received an email from a person who identified himself as a Black Magick Satanist; he stated that, while I understood much about Black Magick, I needed to be aware that the book, "Thus Saith Zarathustra", by Nietzche, would be the "Bible of Antichrist".
Now, at the the End of the Age, as all the signs point to the soon appearance of Antichrist, I was told by a Satanist that Zarathustra is a type of Antichrist. And Zarathustra wore white! He was a spiritual leader, and he wore only white.
Zarathustra is depicting that he is Deity; he is God, the Lucifer Sun-God
In modern Illuminism, this Zoroastrian belief is completely carried forward. The top spiritual leader wears white and he is considered the Lucifer Sun-God ! When any Illuminist meets with him, he is considered "inferior" and wears black.
When the Pope wears the white dress, he is harkening back to Zarathustra, who wears the white because HE IS God, the Lucifer Sun-God ! Therefore, the Pope is declaring to all the world that he is God, and is superior to all other men. When Presidents Bush, Clinton, Reagan, along with Queen Elizabeth II and Former Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, all wore black as they met with the Pope, they were all acknowledging the Pope's superior position as a religious holy man! They were also acknowledging that the Pope is their God!
The Plan calls for the Pope to travel to Jerusalem at the "right moment in world history" where he will declare from a monotheistic forum that all world's religions are now one, and he is their leader.
If this trip is that moment, it would make sense that the Antichrist tradition of Zoroastrianism is being strictly followed!

Will Israel be the first cashless society on the entire planet?  A committee chaired by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff has come up with a three phase plan to all but do away with cash transactions in Israel.  Individuals and businesses would still be permitted to conduct cash transactions in small amounts (at least initially), but the eventual goal is to force Israeli citizens to conduct as much business as possible using ele ctronic forms of payment.  In fact, it has been reported that Israeli officials believe that “cash is bad” because it fuels the underground economy and allows people to avoid paying taxes.  It is hoped that requiring most transactions to be conducted in cash will reduce crime and help balance the national budget.  And once 98 or 99 percent of all transactions are cashless, it will not be difficult for the Israeli government (or any other government) to go the rest of the way and ban cash transactions altogether.  But is a cashless society actually desirable?  This is a question that people all over the world will have to start asking as governments increasingly restrict the use of cash.

Back in September, it was announced that the Israeli government had formed a committee to “examine ways to eliminate cash from the Israeli economy”
The government on Tuesday, May 26th, authorized establishment of a committee that will examine ways to eliminate cash from the Israeli economy – the better to prevent citizens from cheating on their taxes. The committee will be chaired by Harel Locker, director of the Prime Minister’s Office.
This committee had the full backing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and some of the goals of the committee included finding ways to increase tax revenue and prevent money laundering
Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office declared that “around the world, it is recognized that cash is a key element of the illegal economy and money laundering. It allows a wide gap between reported and actual incomes, with the corresponding effect on tax revenues.” By eliminating cash, the PMO said, “it will be possible to expand the tax base, and prevent money laundering.” The committee will study the issue from all its perspectives and make recommendations, the PMO said.
The committee has had quite a few months to examine these issues, and now they have come back with their recommendations.  Just this week we learned that a three phase plan is being proposed…
A special committee headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff, Harel Locker, has recommended a three-phase plan to all but do away with cash transactions in Israel.
The motivation for examining a cash-less economy is combatting money laundering and other tax-evasion tactics, thereby maximizing potential tax collection and greatly expanding the tax base. This is important considering the enormous strain put on Israel’s national budget by the army, healthcare system and other public services.
The committee estimated that the black market represents over 20 percent of Israel’s GDP, and cash is the facilitating factor. Cash enables tax evasion, money laundering and even financing terrorism.
So what do the specifics of the plan look like?
Well, there will be very strict limits on the use of cash for individuals and businesses, any violations will be considered criminal offenses, and all Israeli banks will be required to issue debit cards to all account holders
What the committee would like to see happen, pending government approval, is greater restriction on the use of cash, limiting the use of checks as a means of payment and exchange for cash, and promotion of the use of electronic (and therefore verifiable) means of payment.
The following guidelines were set out by the committee for the short-term:
·         Limit business transactions done in cash or by check to NIS 7,500 ($2,150) immediately, and reduce that further to NIS 5,000 ($1,433) one year from the date of legislation;
·         Limit private transactions done in cash or by check to NIS 15,000 ($4,300);
·         Any violation of these limits would be a criminal offense warranting a stiff fine.
In conjunction with these new restrictions, Israeli banks would be required to provide all account holders with debit cards to further promote electronic payments.
But of course this move toward a cashless society is not just happening in Israel.
In Sweden, it is estimated that just 3 percent of all transactions involve cash at this point.  In fact, according to an article in the Washington Post, some Swedish banks do not handle cash at all anymore…
In most Swedish cities, public buses don’t accept cash; tickets are prepaid or purchased with a cell phone text message. A small but growing number of businesses only take cards, and some bank offices — which make money on electronic transactions — have stopped handling cash altogether.
“There are towns where it isn’t at all possible anymore to enter a bank and use cash,” complains Curt Persson, chairman of Sweden’s National Pensioners’ Organization.
And the U.S. is starting to move in that direction as well.
According to a study conducted by MasterCard, approximately 80 percent of all consumer transactions in the United States are now cashless.
But isn’t there a downside to all of this?
Just about everything that we do in life involves money.  So yes, a government can track electronic payments to make sure taxes are being paid and money laundering is not happening, but it would also enable a government to do so much more.
If a government can track all of your transactions, it will essentially be able to monitor everywhere you go and pretty much keep track of virtually everything that you do.
If you doubt this, just try to live without any money some time.
You won’t get very far without putting some gas in your vehicle.
And without being able to buy food, you will get hungry pretty quickly.
Are you starting to understand?
This is why governments love the idea of moving toward a cashless society.  It would give them an immensely powerful surveillance tool.

So Bible prophecy is being fulfilled and we are one step closer to the “Mark of the Beast” and the anti-christ’s one world economy. 

What is it about the Jews? Why do so many people have such strong opinions about the Jewish people?
Some statistics I was looking at said there are around 13 million Jews in the world with over 5 million residing in Israel and over 5 million residing in the United States. That is basically the population of Illinois living in an area roughly the size of New Jersey.
So what is it about these people? What is it that stirs such passion when this people group is mentioned?
Is it because they are the first monotheistic religion? So when they say there is one God, does that offend people that believe differently that their religion is wrong?
They gave us the Ten Commandments through the book of Exodus. So does that mean we dislike them because their religious views tell us that our lives and behavior does not meet up to God’s standard?
Throughout history there seems to have been a movement to wipe out the Jews. From Ancient Egypt, Haman, Herod, and the Romans to the more recent Russian, Nazi Germany, Iran, etc.—all seemed to want to exterminate the Jews. So far they have had no luck.
This is a quote from Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel:
[O]ne cold day in the late 19th century, my grandfather Nathan and his younger brother Judah were standing in a railway station in the heart of Europe. They were seen by a group of anti-Semitic hoodlums who ran towards them waving clubs, screaming “Death to the Jews.”
My grandfather shouted to his younger brother to flee and save himself, and he then stood alone against the raging mob to slow it down. They beat him senseless, they left him for dead, and before he passed out, covered in his own blood, he said to himself, “What a disgrace, what a disgrace. The descendants of the Maccabees lie in the mud powerless to defend themselves.”
He promised himself then that if he lived, he would take his family to the Jewish homeland and help build a future for the Jewish people. I stand here today as Israel’s prime minister because my grandfather kept that promise.
And so many other Israelis have a similar story, a parent or a grandparent who fled every conceivable oppression and came to Israel to start a new life in our ancient homeland. Together we’ve transformed a bludgeoned Jewish people, left for dead, into a vibrant, thriving nation, defending itself with the courage of modern Maccabees, developing limitless possibilities for the future.
In our time the Biblical prophecies are being realized. As the prophet Amos said, they shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink their wine. They shall till gardens and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again. [iv] (emphasis added)
Even though people seem to be trying to destroy the Jews once again, they are not going anywhere.
There is now a movement called the BDS movement. It is boycott, divest, and sanction the state of Israel.
Here is a video clip of Ben Shapiro of speaking out against it at UCLA:
By the way, Israel and Jews are not going extinct no matter what anyone tries to do to them.
It sure seems like Iran and some Muslim sure want to wipe Israel off of the face of the earth. I wonder where they get that type of thinking from?
Qur’an (3:85) – ”And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”
Qur’an (9:30) – “Christians and Jews are perverse. Allah himself fights against them.”
Qur’an (4:51) – “Jews and Christians believe in idols and false deities, yet they claim to be more rightly guided than Muslims.”
Qur’an (5:51) – ”O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”
Qur’an (9:5) – “Kill the nonbelievers wherever you find them.”
There is an unspoken spiritual battle raging behind the scenes over who has the real God. As long as Israel exists, the answer to that question is inescapable.
Jeremiah 31:35-36:
“Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever”
There is an interesting verse in the Bible that seems to be coming into play these days:
Zechariah 12:3:
“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.”
Yes, every country sometime soon is going to turn against Israel. Yes, that includes the United States of America. When those days arrive, make sure you bet on the eternal God of Israel to win that battle and stay on His side and no one else’s.
When God makes a promise, He shall keep it! His word is good.
Genesis 12:3:
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Galatians 3:16:
“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”
Galatians 3:29:
“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
When we get to the other side, guess who we are going to see there?
Revelation 7:9:
“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;”
Israel may be in unbelief for a time, but their future is bright. This little nation has and will continue to bring untold blessings to the world!
Romans 11:11,12:
“I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?”
John 4:22:
“Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.”
Yes, there are going to be lots and lots of Jews in Heaven who have come to know Yeshua Hamashiach, Jesus the Messiah!
The lost and dying world really wants the Jews and Christians to go the way of the dinosaur. To be a fossilized relic of the distant past. They literally want them to disappear off of the face of the earth. No can do. Won’t be happening. You may kill some of us off, but the children of God will live forever!
I invite the reader to consider carefully what is written in the following words of the apostle Paul. This servant of Yahshua was testifying of what would occur at the end of the age preceding the appearing of Christ. He was speaking of the hour in which we now live. Speaking prophetically, the apostle declared that one of the major characteristics of this hour would be a pervasive deception that would cause the church at large to fall away from the truth.

II Thessalonians 2:1-12
Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Yahshua Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the apostasy (the falling away from truth) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not obey the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

In this brief passage, the apostle states the following:

• Christians need to beware of deception.
• Christ’s return will be preceded by a great apostasy, a general falling away from truth by the church.
• A lawless one will come who will be worshiped by humanity, including those in the church.
• This lawless one will perform signs and wonders, as he manifests great power that has been given to him by Satan.
• The lawless one will have great power to deceive.
• Christians who do not obey/love the truth will be given over to a spirit of delusion.
• Christians who take pleasure in unrighteousness will fall to delusion and experience the condemnation of God.

As I survey the church of this hour, I see that everything Paul prophesied is occurring. The church at large is turning away from truth. I observed a profound example of this two days ago as I listened to an audio message that a brother in Christ informed me about. Rick Wiles of the TruNews Radio program was interviewing Anglican/Episcopalian Bishop Tony Palmer. Tony Palmer is the man who recently carried a message from Pope Francis to Kenneth Copeland, and the hundreds of ministers gathered together at one of the Kenneth Copeland Ministry events.
Tony Palmer, in a private meeting with the Pope, made a video with his cell phone of Pope Francis speaking a word of reconciliation and entreaty to Kenneth Copeland, inviting the Protestants to lay aside their rejection of Roman Catholicism, and to be united with the Harlot of Rome in one communion. The message was eagerly, ecstatically, received by Kenneth Copeland, who responded by leading the hundreds of gathered ministers in prayer for the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.

Rick Wiles was just as embracing of Bishop Tony Palmer’s message. Throughout the hour long broadcast Rick Wiles expressed agreement, and spoke openly of the common experiences and beliefs that he shared with Palmer.
Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

The broadcast was a masterpiece of deception. You can listen to it at the following link:

Rick Wiles begins the broadcast by asking Tony Palmer to describe the time when he came to know the Lord. He shares how he was saved through the testimony of a carpenter and invited to attend a mega-church in South Africa. The staff at the mega-church recognized that Tony had a call on his life to be a minister, and after just a few months of being saved he quit his job in the medical field and took a full-time position as a neighborhood evangelist with the church. After he had been a Christian for about a year, the church staff agreed that he had a call on his life to be a minister. Consequently he was sent off to a Bible college to receive ministry training.

I have written before of the incongruity between the ways churches prepare men for ministry, and Yahshua’s method of preparing men for ministry. Being sent off to attend Bible college is NOT Christ’s method for preparing His servants. Christ demonstrated an apprenticeship model of preparing disciples. Key to the success of this method is that the journeyman discipler be a godly individual who walks with God, being directed and empowered by the Spirit of Christ. In this way, the apprentice is able to have modeled before him the entire life of a disciple, rather than simply having ideas and doctrines delivered to him in the sterile environment of the classroom.

After two and a half years of Bible college, Tony Palmer was asked to take over the office management for Kenneth Copeland Ministries in South Africa. Tony married an Italian woman from a Roman Catholic family, and his trips to Italy to visit his wife’s family began introducing him to Roman Catholicism. From there, he began to develop a dialogue with Catholics, and rather than seeing them as members of an idolatrous religion that professed to follow Christ while praying to Mary and a pantheon of saints, he began to admire the liturgy and sacramental theology of the early Roman Catholic church fathers. Seeking out a Protestant church with a liturgical and sacramental bent, Tony Palmer found what he was desiring in the Episcopalian/Anglican communion.

The Anglican and Episcopalian denominations are about as close to being Roman Catholic as any Protestant denominations. They are considered “high church,” having a liturgical form of service where both the clergy and laity have scripted parts to play. The Anglican/Episcopalian churches also teach a sacramental theology. They recognize seven sacraments, including baptism, the Eucharist (Holy Communion), confession and absolution, matrimony, confirmation, holy orders (also called Ordination) and anointing of the sick (also called Unction). They believe that the sacraments are a means of grace, sanctification, and salvation. In recent years, the Anglican and Episcopalian churches have been drawing closer to Roman Catholicism, and are on track to experience a merging of their communions.

Tony Palmer began to seek a common ground of fellowship between Catholics and Reformation church denominations. He joined with a Catholic minister to form an ecumenical ministry whose goal was to bring Catholics and Protestants together, while also working to re-introduce liturgy and sacramental theology to Protestant churches in what is known as the Convergence Movement. Tony Palmer shared that in the years after he resigned his ministry position with Kenneth Copeland Ministries to pursue this ecumenical work of uniting Catholics and Protestants, that Kenneth Copeland encouraged him in his work and supported him financially.

In truth, Tony Palmer is a Roman Catholic. He has stated that he has been employed by the Roman Catholic Church for the past four years, and his wife and children are Catholic. On his personal website called The Ark Community, he makes the following statement in an address before a group of Catholics.

Because of our close relationship with the Charismatic Catholic Church, my wife has returned to her Catholic faith and even our Children desire to be Catholic. I am the only one in my own family that is not Catholic. This is something I have to suffer for the sake of my Mission. As an Anglican I represent a bridge between the Protestant and Catholic worlds, becoming a Catholic myself would mean losing my ability to be a bridge, therefore I suffer being outside the 'Mother Church' for the sake of the Kingdom of God. God knows how I suffer internally when I am unable to partake of the Communion that I feel so part of. I am reminded of the Samaritan Women who asked Jesus healing, He told her that He had not come for the Dogs but for the Jews... And she answered...'but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the table'... I have become worst (sic) than a dog for the sake of God's calling, remember us when you eat?

I would suggest that the true Catholic view toward those outside of the “mother church” is revealed in Tony Palmer’s statement that “I have become worst (sic) than a dog.” Brothers and sisters, the true agenda of the Roman Catholic Church is NOT to reform her errors, nor to benefit from the corrective influence of reformation Christians. Her goal is to lure the Protestant denominations, and all those outside of the “mother church,” back into her embrace. The way she is seeking to accomplish this is by promoting the lie that doctrinal unity and fidelity is less important than fraternity (brotherhood). This message is present throughout Tony Palmer’s writings and speeches. In the interview with Rick Wiles, Tony Palmer shared the following.

The real essence of diversity must be celebrated. Because diversity is a gift. Diversity is divine. Its division that is diabolic. And if we look at it, and if we are honest, and humble enough, we will find that diversity actually completes us. It should not make us compete against each other.

The diversity that Tony Palmer has in mind is all the varied, conflicting, and often heretical doctrines contained in both the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches. He says THIS diversity is divine, and to separate over doctrine, even heretical beliefs, is diabolical (a work of Satan). Nothing could be further from the truth. At the beginning of this post I quoted the apostle Paul’s letter to Timothy where he declared that in the last days there would be a great apostasy before Christ returned. The word apostasy literally means “to be divorced from truth.” It is this very thing that Tony Palmer, and others, are facilitating through their message of fellowship without doctrinal fidelity or agreement.

Toward the end of the interview, Rick Wiles speaks the following to Tony Palmer.

I am not a Roman Catholic Church basher. I consider my Catholic friends as my brothers and sisters in Christ. I can fellowship with them in love. Yet, at the same time, we have profound theological differences. For example, sacerdotal priesthood, the doctrine of In Persona Christi (where the priest claims to operate as Christ’s personal representative on earth and makes intercession for men), the veneration of Mary as a co-redeemer, the immaculate conception and the assumption of Mary (that the Virgin Mary “having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory”), prayers for the dead, veneration of relics, papal superiority..., if there is going to be unity between Roman Catholics and Protestants, Tony how do we get past these differences?

Tony Palmer’s answer is filled with the cunning of Satan.

Well, I think you are going about it the wrong way. We are not trying to get unity. The reality is, if you are a Christian and I am a Christian, we are already united in Christ. The problem is that we need to demonstrate it visibly, and we think that we can only become one visibly when we sort out all these issues, and that’s not the case. We need to begin with friendship, and forgiveness above all. If we do not forgive the past, we’ll have no hope for the future. You will never be able to question me on my doctrines and beliefs with the right attitude, if you do not first love me...

We are going to have to allow one another a diversity of expression. But we need to sit and talk about the issues that are of importance to salvation... Remember, your listeners need to recognize this Biblical fact, if it is Christ’s body that makes all mankind one, anything else that we use to separate that which God has united, we are effectively elevating that something, whatever it might be, higher than the cross of Christ itself. Everything is trumped, all our doctrines, all our expressions, no matter how erroneous some of them may be, are trumped by the cross of Christ. If you are in Christ and I am in Christ, you and I are together in Christ. We just need to learn how to offer one another the grace of diversity and learn to work out the issues.

When I heard Tony Palmer state, “You will never be able to question me on my doctrines and beliefs with the right attitude, if you do not first love me...,” I knew then that he identified himself as a Roman Catholic and the doctrinal beliefs Rick Wiles had enumerated were the very doctrines that he claimed as his own. Brothers and sisters, the Bible states that there is only ONE WAY to be reconciled to God, and that is through the sacrifice and resurrection of Yahshua, the Son of God. The Roman Catholics would like you to accept them as brothers and sisters while they pray to Mary and view her as co-redemptrix with Christ. In practice, Mary, the Queen of Heaven, holds a higher position of honor in the minds of Roman Catholics, than does her Son. I observed this personally when I toured a number of Roman Catholic Churches in Manhattan some years back when I was on a speaking trip. In the front center of each sanctuary was a large statue of Mary, while the statue of Christ was off to the side of the sanctuary. Following are the words of some Roman Pope’s regarding Mary’s role.

What will it cost you, oh Mary, to hear our prayer? What will it cost you to save us? Has not Jesus placed in your hands all the treasures of His grace and mercy? You sit crowned Queen at the right hand of your son: your dominion reaches as far as the heavens and to you are subject the earth and all creatures dwelling thereon. Your dominion reaches even down into the abyss of hell, and you alone, oh Mary, save us from the hands of Satan.
[Pope Pius XI]

Mary, not one of thy devout servants has ever perished: may I, too, Be saved!
[Pope Benedict XV]

Do thou, who art the Seat of Wisdom, enlighten the minds wretchedly enfolded in the darkness of ignorance and sin, that they may clearly recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found. Call them to the unity of the one fold, granting them the grace to believe every truth of our holy faith and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth, that, thus being united with us by the sweet chains of charity, there may soon be but one fold under one and the same Shepherd; and may we all thus, O Glorious Virgin, exultantly sing forever: ‘Rejoice, O Virgin Mary! Thou alone hast destroyed all heresies in the whole world!’ Amen.
[Pope Pius XII, The Raccolta, Benzinger Brothers, Boston, 1957, No. 626]
Pope John Paul II dedicated his general audience to “the Virgin Mary” and urged all Christians to accept Mary as their mother. He noted the words spoken by Jesus on the cross to Mary and to John–”Woman, behold thy son!” and “Behold thy mother!” (John 19:26,27), and he claimed that in this statement “It is possible to understand the authentic meaning of Marian worship in the ecclesial community … which furthermore is based on the will of Christ...” 

The history of Christian piety teaches that Mary is the path that leads to Christ, and that filial devotion to her does not at all diminish intimacy with Jesus, but rather, it increases it and leads it to very high levels of perfection.” He concluded by asking all Christians “to make room (for Mary) in their daily lives, acknowledging her providential role in the path of salvation.” 

[Source: Vatican Information Service, May 7, 1997]

The false doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church portrays Mary as the gateway through which all mankind must gain access to her Son. Catholics are therefore in the habit of praying to Mary, in hope that she will in turn present their petition to her Son so that He might act on their behalf.

"Have recourse to that dear Mary who is the Mother of Mercy. She will take you into her Son's presence and use her Motherly intercession with Him on your behalf, so that He will be merciful toward you."
[St. Catherine of Siena]
The many false doctrines of the Roman church that have arisen to venerate Mary and to cause a billion souls to worship her are NOT an example of divine diversity that needs to be celebrated. They are an example of diabolical deception that needs to be firmly resisted. The same is true of the Roman Catholic belief in Papal superiority and infallibility; the practice of confessing one’s sins to a priest and doing penance; and the myriad interjections of paganism into Catholic rites through the age old practice of syncretism.

Satan first sought to elevate Mary to a place of worship when Yahshua was still walking the earth in the days of His ministry. The Son of God immediately rebuked the speaker, giving no place to this false spirit of idolatry.

Luke 11:27-28
And it came about while He said these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice, and said to Him, "Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts at which You nursed." But He said, "On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God, and observe it."

Rick Wiles did not argue with Tony Palmer when he interviewed him. He spoke no disagreement with the answers he gave. Throughout the interview he gave the impression of one who found great agreement with what was being spoken, and supported the aims of the man being interviewed. Many of the TruNews listeners, however, were surprised, disappointed, and many were angry. A deluge of online comments were posted and e-mails were sent to Rick Wiles, resulting in his giving a defense of his actions in another broadcast two days later.
I agree that there is much fleshliness and many failures of love among the body of Christ. Nevertheless, Rick Wiles response to the concerns and protests of his listeners fell short of honoring the Lord he professes to serve. His reply was self-serving. Rather than examining the concerns of listeners, and addressing their arguments against embracing Roman Catholicism, he characterized himself as misunderstood while demonizing those who expressed alarm. In doing so, he moved from deception to delusion. These two words are defined in the following manner.

Deception: the act of deceiving (to mislead or falsely persuade others.)
Synonyms: trick, stratagem, ruse, wile, hoax, imposture

Delusion: a fixed false belief that is resistant to reason or confrontation with actual fact.

In the interview with Tony Palmer, deception was present, while in the follow-up broadcast where Rick Wiles defends the broadcast delusion is present.
Brothers and sisters, Satan is using the word diversity to promote much perversity in this hour. Diversity is the buzz word of the homosexuals, and they proclaim that we should celebrate diversity. In the spiritual realm Satan is using the same tactic. He would declare that all religious views are merely manifestations of the wonderful diversity of humanity, and this diversity should be embraced and celebrated. It is suggested that it is enough simply to be a “spiritual person,” and that specific beliefs and doctrines should not separate spiritual men and women. Tony Palmer goes so far as to state that an embrace of diversity is needed in order to be “Christ-like.” In the writing from The Ark Community that I cited earlier, Palmer declares the following.

So to be Christ-like we as believers need to have two things: We need diversity and we need diversity to be together. Being united does not mean being the same, being united means being together.

The unification of diversity must be manifested on a personal and on a corporate level. Individually we need to embrace all the charismas of Christ in order to be transformed into His image and as His Body Corporately we need to embrace each other's diversity and stand together to be the image of Christ Universally as ONE Holy catholic universal eternal glorious  victorious Church...!


Do we actually need to celebrate diversity to be Christ-like? Is division over doctrinal beliefs of the Devil? Yahshua answered these questions in His own statements.

Matthew 10:34-39
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies will be the members of his household.  He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life shall lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake shall find it.”

Christ is called “the Truth,” and truth divides and separates. This is why the Son of God is figured in the book of Revelation with a double edged sword coming out of His mouth, and why in the passage above He states that He came to bring a sword. Yahshua has also spoken to us through His apostles.

II Corinthians 6:14-18
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. ‘I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.”
Brothers and sisters, the practice of Roman Catholicism is to embrace all religions, and to celebrate the diversity of all idolatrous worship. The Spirit of Christ speaks plainly that this is not of God, and those who do such things are NOT His people. They will stand before the Lord one day and hear Him say, “Depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness. I never knew you.”

Tony Palmer is a deceiver, and a worker of Satan. I watched the video where this man presented the Pope’s message to those gathered at the Kenneth Copeland meeting. I listened to his interview with Rick Wiles. In neither of these did he identify himself as a Roman Catholic, or state that the only reason he has not joined the Roman Catholic Church is so that he can act as a bridge between Catholics and Protestants. He confessed his true affiliation only when he was speaking to a gathering of Roman Catholics. This is the behavior of a deceiver.

How deceitful and serpent-like it is for the Pope and Tony Palmer to say that Christians need to forgive the errors of the past. These errors include the Roman Catholic Church’s martyrdom of hundreds of thousands of Christians, including women and children. These errors include tortures, and forms of death that were of the most cruel and unusual forms including burning people alive over green wood, disemboweling men to suffer cruelly as their intestines spilled out, and ripping open the stomachs of pregnant women after repeatedly raping them. The history of Roman Catholic persecution is truly Satanic. Very well has this Harlot fulfilled the words that the apostle John wrote about her.

Revelation 17:4-6
And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and upon her forehead a name was written, a mystery, "BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Yahshua.

The present Pope is a Jesuit, the most cunning, treacherous, and dishonest of all groups among the Roman Catholics. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is a serpent along the path. He would ask the disciples of Christ to come and enter into communion with him. He postures, and appears meek and mild, but inwardly he is full of the scheming of Satan, the father of liars and murderers.

Will you be swayed by the words of men like Rick Wiles and Tony Palmer? Will you declare as Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries of a recent Pope that he was a champion of Christianity and a righteous man? Will you agree with Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, and pastor of Saddleback Church that “Pope Francis is doing everything right”? (See the video at link below)
Rick Warren is on record as stating the following.

“I see absolutely zero reason in separating my fellowship from anybody,” he declared. Noting he has theological differences with many of the diverse denominations that invite him to speak (Including Catholics), Warren added, “That doesn’t stop me from fellowshipping with them.”

In this same article, Rick Warren trumpets the celebration of diversity message.

“God has called us to enjoy and fellowship with each other and work together. We’re all in this together,” he said, adding Baptists can “celebrate our diversity and celebrate our unity.”

Brothers and sisters, this message that we should not allow doctrinal differences, even heresy and idolatry, to enter into our decisions to have fellowship and communion with others, is antithetical to the commandment of God who has said, “Come out from among them, and do not touch that which is unclean.” There are many evil workers among the church today. The pressure to lay aside differences and to embrace all beliefs will only increase. The agenda is clear. The message is going forth. The great apostasy is occurring at this present hour. If you would remain true to Yahshua, you must stand in the truth.

John 4:23-24
"But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

Justin Trudeau, the leader of Canada's Liberal Party, recently announced that the Liberal Party will not allow anyone to run in any national election who does not pledge to vote "pro-choice" without exception.

The Liberal Party, which has been relegated to a mere thirty-five seats in the national parliament has been trying to shore up support since its disastrous outing in the most recent elections.

Although the Liberal Party has traditionally been open to different opinions on abortion, fiscal matters, and other political issues, Trudeau made it clear that there would be a unified front on the issue of murder of unborn children. Claiming that 80% of his party's supporters agree with a "woman's choice" on this issue, he stated plainly that candidates who elect to run on the Liberal ticket "will be expected to voice pro-choice on any bills."

In the same press conference, Trudeau acknowledged with some sense of pride that his party has traditionally been more ideologically diverse, pointing out that there are those he considers "far right" on fiscal matters, and others who are more left of center on these issues.

His argument seems to be based on a belief that abortion is a settled issue in Canada. It is currently legal to murder an unborn child in Canada, although there is some variance between different provinces on legal aspects of abortion.

The timing of his statement is rather suspect, coming as it did so close to the March for Life on Parliament Hill. This widely-attended event has traditionally been a place for supporters of rights for the unborn to speak on the issue. In fact, Liberals have spoken at these events with regularity in the past.

LifeCanada's Lisa Smith (listed as the group's secretary on their website), reacted with surprise at Trudeau's bluntness in addressing this issue. However, she also pointed out that Trudeau actually did Canadians a favor by making his position clear on the issue. In this way, voters can have a clear direction on whether or not they want to support the position that Trudeau has taken for his party.

LifeCanada was founded in 2000 and has a mission "to establish the value of human life in the hearts and minds of Canadians and their institutions", commissioned a poll that showed a majority of Canadians (60%) supported legal restrictions on abortion. The group is also concerned with euthanasia and other pro-life concerns.

The Liberal Party is ideologically seeking a position similar to that taken by the New Democratic Party, perhaps due to recent losses at the ballot. The NDP has always been strictly pro-abortion, a position that they wrote into their party platform. Tom Mulcair, the leader of the NDP, stated that no one in his party will "vote against a woman's right to chose".

Although Trudeau made it clear that new candidates, who do not pledge to vote in favor of abortion on all bills, will not be allowed to run under the Liberal Party banner, he was less clear regarding those who already hold office. The party used to be home to a number of pro-life representatives, although that number has dwindled along with the party's overall presence in Parliament. 
However, two notable representatives remain: John McKay and Judy Sgro, both of whom represent Toronto. McKay anticipates "awkward moments" in the future, but has made no plans to endorse the party's new position on abortion.

McKay pointed out that his counterparts in the Conservative Party fare little better than he does in his own party. His point certainly has merit.

The Conservative Party has not made a blanket statement banning pro-life candidates, but Prime Minister Stephen Harper and leader of the Conservative Party has made it clear that he will not fight the abortion issue in the Parliament. In fact, he has used his power to prevent pro-life candidates from introducing bills limiting abortion in Parliament.

Harper has managed to squelch any discussion on the abortion issue within his party without a mandate like his counterpart in the Liberal Party. However, the Conservative Party, which controls 160 seats in Parliament, has a large and vocal section of its caucus that are adamantly pro-life.

Trudeau also hinted that the party may make a similar stance on other "social" issues. He made it clear that there will be a litmus test for new candidates on a host of issues, stating that he will ask new people seeking to become candidates "how they feel about same-sex marriage", as well as abortion.

In his statement concerning his party's new prohibition on pro-life candidates, and his allusion to a future similar position on homosexual "marriage", he referenced that his party's potential candidates must also support the Charter of Rights and Freedom. It is interesting that he makes this statement, because the Charter of Rights and Freedom recognize two rights that seem to be at issue with his position: religious freedom and freedom of association. So, although Trudeau professes support of these principles in theory, his actions show something wholly different.

Trudeau believes abortion is a settled issue, basing this primarily on the majority support his pro-abortion policy has within his party (claiming eighty per cent), and his belief that the majority of Canadians also support abortion "rights". Of course, LifeCanada's polls suggest otherwise.

In Canada, supporters of the rights of the unborn have little to cheer about. The Conservative Party has expressed little interest in taking up their cause, even with a significant portion of their caucus in agreement with their position. The Liberal Party has now come out with a prohibition against pro-life candidates, and the New Democratic Party has always held a position in favor of support for abortion.

Regardless of where the issue of abortion is ultimately settled in Canada, Trudeau's action represent a first in Canadian politics, where the leader of a party has made it clear that they will tolerate no diversity of opinion on the issue of abortion. 
The future of the Liberal Party is unclear, having suffered devastating losses in the last election. They have doubled down on their position regarding abortion and have made it clear that there will be no tolerance for opposing viewpoints on this issue. 
It's just a matter of time before this undemocratic position spreads to other issues as well-something which should concern all Canadians.

In a controversial move by the Catholic church, Pope Francis has come out in vocal support of RFID Chip technologies and the extraordinary potential they hold for mankind. The outrage stems from a belief held by many Evangelicals, Fundamentalists and Catholics, that RFID implants are the Mark Of The Beast, spoken about in their Holy Book’s chapter regarding the end of the world.
During the Pontiff’s weekly general address, he spoke to the crowd about his view on the RFID technology, and assured his many followers that no spiritual harm can come from receiving an RFID implant.
“We have examined the scriptures thoroughly, and I can conclusively say that there’s nothing to indicate that RFID Chips are Satanic in anyway. If anything, these devices are a blessing from God himself, bestowed upon humanity to solve many of the world’s ills.”

He went onto urge his devotees to be open minded in this era where brilliant new technological advancements are being made everyday. The Bishop of Rome explained to those in attendance his excitement over making RFID implantation a mandatory procedure for all employees and residents of the Vatican.
Last month, NBC predicted that by 2017, every American will own a RFID implant. Not surprising, considering humanities ever increasing reliance on technology. With the advent of products like Google Glass, the merging of Man and Machine inches closer each day. Widespread implantation of the RFID chip would be an enormous and historic leap into that glorious, utopian future.

Late last year the citizens of Hanna, Wyoming helped to beta test RFID implantation. Everyone residing in the small town carries an RFID device between the skin of their thumb and forefinger, using it both as an ID and a method for paying for goods and services. Towns members state that the opinion of the RFID is overwhelmingly positive, and are proud to be the first Americans to have received the implant.
Several aspects of modern society can be improved with the implementation of RFID technology. Crimes such as kidnapping and identity theft would cease to exist. In medical emergencies where the patient is incapacitated, doctors can find life saving information by scanning the individual’s RFID chip, and for those people who love shopping, you’ll never have to carry money that can be stolen, or debt cards that can be lost; Now your entire banking information is literally in the palm of you hand.
With the Pope’s endorsement and blessing, interest in RFID implantation is sure to see a wider acceptance from members of the church. This could, hopefully, be the push that this agenda needs to gain household recognition.

"Numbers constitute the only universal language." Nathanael West 

"Nature's great book is written in mathematics." Galileo

"Mathematics is a more powerful instrument of knowledge than any other that has been bequeathed to us by human agency." Descartes 

Whatever you think about the quotations above, it is an inescapable fact that the creation was formed with great mathematical precision. Galileo declared that mathematics is the language in which nature’s book is written. If anything, the famed astronomer is guilty of understatement. Yahweh not only has fashioned the heavens and the earth with a remarkable degree of mathematical precision and order, He also uses numbers to communicate spiritual truth.

Numbers in the Bible are not random. They are associated with ideas. Numbers in Scripture are utilized consistently to demonstrate a type of coded communication. Those who understand their meaning are able to recognize the divine design that has chosen certain numbers in specific associations. Patterns that are recognized in this way guide the reader to further insight into the message God is communicating through His word.

An example of a number being associated with a specific idea is observed in the number twelve. Yahweh has chosen this number to communicate an idea of “divine election and perfected government.” Jacob had twelve sons who became the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel. Yahshua chose twelve men to be His disciples and to serve as apostles to establish the first foundations of the church. In the book of Revelation we read of the overcomers who stand with the Savior on Mount Zion. These overcomers will rule and reign with Christ during the millennial period. Their number is given as 144,000 - 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel. This repetition of the number twelve is not mere coincidence. Yahweh has determined that this number convey the idea of election and government.

Another profoundly significant number invested with divine meaning is seven. In the very first chapter of the Bible we learn that the creation “week” consisted of seven days. The first six days were full of creative activity and on the seventh day God rested. This seven day “week” has remained pervasive throughout man’s history as a basic unit of counting time. Whether men are Christian, or non-believers; whether they regard the Bible as divine truth, or nothing more than fable and superstition, the week of seven days is observed by all. The number seven continues to be featured prominently to the last book of the Bible. In Revelation we read of seven churches, seven stars, seven angels, seven lampstands, seven spirits of God, seven seals, seven horns, seven eyes, seven trumpets, seven peals of thunder, seven thousand people who perish in an earthquake, a dragon with seven heads and on his heads seven crowns, seven plagues, seven golden bowls containing the wrath of God, and seven mountains. Only the naive could dismiss the number seven as bearing no particular significance to God.

The number seven is intrinsically tied to this present creation of the earth. In the book Number in Scriptures, E.W. Bullinger provides insight into the profound significance of numbers throughout the creation. He remarks on the fact that the number seven is linked to a divine chronology of events.


The first natural division of time is stamped by the Number seven. On the seventh day God rested from His work of Creation.

When He ordained the ritual for Israel which should show forth His work of Redemption, seven is again stamped upon it in all its times and seasons. The seventh day was the holy day; the seventh month was specially hallowed by its number of sacred festivals; the seventh year was the Sabbatic year of rest for the land: while 7 x 7 years marked the year of Jubilee (Lev 25:4,8)...

God's dealings with His people have to do with actual duration of time rather than with specific dates; and we find that His dealings with Israel were measured out into four periods, each consisting of 490 (70 times 7) years. Thus:—

    The 1st. From Abraham to the Exodus.

    The 2nd. The Exodus to the Dedication of Temple.
    The 3rd. From the Temple to Nehemiah's return.
    The 4th. From Nehemiah to the Second Advent.

It is clear that these are periods of duration having regard only to Israel, and to Jehovah's immediate dealings with them. For in each one there is a period of time during which He was not immediately governing them, but in which His hand was removed, and His people were without visible tokens of His presence with them. 

You can see how Bullinger arrived at the calculation of these four periods of time in his book. Bullinger continues to demonstrate how the number seven is stamped upon other aspects of this present creation.


We see the same law at work in various departments of nature. Sometimes one number is the dominant factor, sometimes another. In nature seven is found to mark the only possible mode of classification of the mass of individuals which constitutes the special department called science. We give the seven divisions, with examples from the animal and vegetable kingdoms. The one specimen of an animal (the dog) and one specimen of a flower (the rose).


offers a vast field for illustration, but here again the grand impress is seen to be the number seven. The days of man's years are "Three-score years and ten" (7x10). In seven years the whole structure of his body changes: and we are all familiar with "the seven ages of man."

There are seven Greek words used to describe these seven ages, according to Philo:—

1.    Infancy (paidion, child).

2.    Childhood (pais boy).
3.    Youth (meirakion, lad, stripling).
4.    Adolescence (neaniskos, young man).
5.    Manhood (aner, man).
6.    Decline (presbutes, old man).
7.    Senility (geron, aged man).

The various periods of gestation also are commonly a multiple of seven, either of days or weeks.

With INSECTS the ova are hatched from seven half-days (as the wasp, bee, etc.); while with others it is seven whole days. The majority of insects require from 14 (2x7) to 42 (6x7) days; the same applies to the larva state.

With ANIMALS the period of gestation of—

    The mouse is 21 (3x7) days.

    The hare and rat, 28 (4x7) days.
    The cat, 56 (8x7) days.
    The dog, 63 (9x7) days.
    The lion, 98 (14x7) days.
    The sheep, 147 (21x7) days.

With BIRDS, the gestation of—

    The common hen is 21 (3x7) days.

    The duck, 42 (6x7) days.

With the Human species it is 280 days (or 40x7).

Bullinger remarks on another number that pervades the creation. It is the number 3.

It is not always seven, however, which is the predominant factor in physiology or natural history.

In the case of the BEE, it is the number three which pervades its phenomena—

•    In three days the egg of the queen is hatched.

•    It is fed for nine days (3x3).
•    It reaches maturity in 15 days (5x3).
•    The worker grub reaches maturity in 21 days (7x3).
•    And is at work three days after leaving its cell.
•    The drone matures in 24 days (8x3).
•    The bee is composed of three sections,— head and two stomachs.
•    The two eyes are made up of about 3,000 small eyes, each (like the cells of the comb) having six sides (2x3).
•    Underneath the body are six (2x3) wax scales with which the comb is made.
•    It has six (2x3) legs. Each leg is composed of three sections.
•    The foot is formed of three triangular sections.
•    The antennae consist of nine (3x3) sections.
•    The sting has nine (3x3) barbs on each side.

Is this design, or is it chance? Why should it be the number three instead of any other number? No one can tell. We can only observe the wondrous working of supernatural laws, and admire the perfection of design...

It is most impressive when it is observed that sound and color (light) are marked by both the numbers three and seven. In music we find that all sound is naturally divided into three octaves of seven notes each (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti). In the realm of light we find that all colors can be formed from three primary colors (Red, Blue, Yellow)

Primary Colors

The visible spectrum of light that the human eye can see is often observed in the rainbow. The colors of the rainbow appear as seven in number. In school they taught us to remember these colors by imagining the discover of this phenomena as being named ROY G. BIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet).


One might ask why God should choose to stamp the creation with the numbers three and seven? What is the significance of these numbers? The answer leads back to what the Bible reveals of the nature of God. There are three numbers that are peculiarly found in descriptions of God. These numbers are one, three, and seven.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5
“Hear, O Israel! Yahweh is our God. Yawheh is one!”

Matthew 28:19
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit...”

Revelation 4:5
And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

It appears that Yahweh chose to imbue the creation with those same attributes and numbers that are characteristic of His own being. Consider that Christ, the visible manifestation of the invisible God, is called both “the Word of God,” and “the Light of the world.” Since the Son of God is compared to that which is both heard and seen, it is fitting that both sound and light should be marked with the numbers one, three, and seven. When we listen to a song, we may say we heard one song, yet the musical tones of that song can be broken down to its constituent seven notes in three octaves. When we observe the colors of the rainbow displayed across the heavens, we may say that we saw one rainbow, yet the rainbow can be subdivided to seven distinct colors, and all colors visible to the eye of man can be formed of three primary colors. Thus, all that mankind can hear and see is peculiarly stamped with the numbers of God.

Man himself is marked by these same numbers. This is to be expected, for Yahweh Elohim said, “Let us create man in Our Image, after Our likeness.” I am one man. Yet I am comprised of three distinct parts.

I Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete...

The spirit, soul, and body of man can be further divided into seven constituent parts.


Cognition (Mind)
Volition (Will)


Body (Sensory life)

As we look throughout the Scriptures we find that Yahweh has repeated this same pattern in manifold ways. The Temple and the Tabernacle were both divided into three sections. There was the Outer Court (corresponding to man’s), The Inner Court (corresponding to man’s soul), and the Holy of Holies (corresponding to man’s spirit). These three areas of the Temple and Tabernacle also relate to the three members of the Godhead: Christ/The Outer Court; The Holy Spirit/The Inner Court; God the Father/The Holy of Holies.

Inside the Temple we also find a remarkable item that reveals further the divine numbers one, three, and seven. This is the Golden Candlestick.

Moses was given a commandment by Yahweh to form the candlestick of a single piece of “beaten gold.” Thus the body of the candlestick was formed all of one piece. The body of the candlestick is representative of the Son of God. His body was also beaten, yet He was pure and holy like refined gold. The candlestick was fashioned into seven individual branching candles. The candlestick did not hold wax candles as we think of them today. Rather, it burned the pure, beaten oil derived from the crushed flesh of the olive. The olive oil was poured into the hollow candlestick and each branch was lit. The oil represents the Holy Spirit. Oil is used to signify anointing throughout the Bible, and John refers to the Holy Spirit as the “anointing” (I John 2: 20, 27). The flames represent the seven spirits of Yahweh.

In the candlestick we clearly see the numbers one, three, and seven. We may say truly that there is only one candlestick. Yet the one candlestick has three distinct parts. It has the body of gold. It has the holy oil. It also has the flame (for our God is a consuming fire). In the book of Revelations we see that Christ is walking among the seven candlesticks representing the seven churches of Asia Minor. It is fitting that the candlestick should serve both as a symbol of God, as well as the people of God. Yahweh has determined that His people should be conformed to His image and likeness.

I will give but one more example of how Yahweh has used these three numbers in the Scriptures. The feasts of Yahweh are three in number. They are the Feast of Passover, the Feast of Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). Just like these other examples, these three feasts are further divisible into seven, for both Passover and Tabernacles are both three part events.

Feast of Passover
Feast of Unleavened Bread
Feast of Firstfruits

Feast of Pentecost

Feast of Trumpets
Day of Atonement
Feast of Tabernacles

Observing that Yahweh has established this pattern of numbers in the creation to denote that which is full and complete, is there a similar testimony to be observed in the earth? After all, man’s flesh was formed of the dust of the earth. Should we not then expect to find the numbers one, three, and seven to have as clear an association to the earth as it does to humanity? The answer is a resounding “Yes!”

I first came across this tertiary (three fold) and septenary (seven fold) design of the earth when I was in my early twenties. A sister of mine was attending LeTourneau College (now LeTourneau University) in Texas. This is an engineering school founded by a Christian man. I remember my sister saying, “I don’t care if I get a Bachelor of Science, or a Bachelor of Arts, as long as I get a bachelor.” My sister was single at the time, and LeTourneau’s student body was about 90% male. She was successful in her aim, marrying an engineering student from the College.

More important to this study, however, is that my sister’s curriculum included Bible classes. An Old Testament Survey course she took was taught by a man by the name of Kenneth F. McKinney. Mr. McKinney had written a book titled Scanning the Plan. My sister showed me the book, and I soon acquired a copy for myself. Mr. McKinney taught the Ruin/Restoration view of Genesis, also known as “the Gap Theory.” Inside the cover of the book was a fold out banner showing the seven stages of the earth, and displaying three separate creations of the earth.

If, and only if, one adopts the ruin/restoration doctrine of Genesis do we find that the earth conforms to the divine pattern we have observed where that which Yahweh creates is stamped with the numbers one, three, and seven. Following are the three creations of the earth as set forth in the Scriptures.

The First Earth
Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

This is the first earth which was created before the fall of Satan. It is the earth of the dinosaurs and other pre-Adamic creatures. This earth was destroyed when Satan rebelled and was cast down. This first earth suffered catastrophic judgment, becoming formless, void, and covered in darkness.

The Second Earth

The second earth is the one we now live on. Its creation, or rather “restoration,” began in Genesis 1:3 as Yahweh said “Let there be light.” With this declaration God began to remove the curse upon the original earth and to fashion things anew, culminating in the creation of Adam on day six. This present earth will be destroyed by fire, as the apostle Peter prophesied.

II Peter 3:7, 10
But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men... But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.

The Third Earth
Revelation 21:1
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.

There is a parallel in these three earths to mankind that I would draw the reader’s attention unto. In a sense, the first two earths were a single entity, for the first earth that was judged by God was not annihilated, or done away with. It was merely made formless, void and covered in darkness. Yet, the third earth is a completely new earth, and in a true sense it can also be called the second true earth, and the last earth.

I find in this a remarkable parallel to Adam and his descendants, and to “the last Adam” who is Christ. Like the first earth, Adam was created blameless. However, Adam rebelled against God, fell into sin, and suffered judgment. The condition of the first earth under judgment bears a remarkable likeness to Adam and his descendants under judgment. Adam was created to bear the likeness and image of God, but this likeness was lost and no longer attainable after Adam sinned. In this regard, Adam became formless, having lost the form of God. There was no man born of Adam who could say, “If you have seen me you have seen God.” The first man to be able to speak these words in truth was Christ. He alone had the form of God.

Adam was also void. That is to say, he was empty. Mankind was created to be a temple of the Holy Spirit. This purpose was left unfulfilled due to the sin of Adam. It would not be until AFTER Christ died on the cross and rose again that the Holy Spirit would be given to indwell humanity. Until Christ, the Holy Spirit had been “with” many men and women, but it would only be after Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended that He would be “in” men and women.

John 14:16-17
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you.”

Due to Adam’s sin, mankind also became darkened in their understanding.

Ephesians 4:17-18
This I say therefore, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God...

Thus, man’s condition was that he too was formless, void, and covered in darkness. There came a time, however, when God began to move to re-create the earth under judgment. The first thing He had to do was to send light upon the earth, for it had been sealed up in darkness.

Genesis 1:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Similarly, in order to redeem mankind Yahweh had to begin by sending him light.

John 12:44, 46
And Yahshua cried out and said, “I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness.”

Each of the six days of the re-creation of the earth in Genesis chapter one finds its spiritual correspondence in mankind and is set forth in the Gospels. I have set forth the parallel between the days of the reformation of the earth and the re-birth of man in the book The Mark of the Beast as well as in the teaching titled The Seven Days of Man. I will not repeat that information here, but would point out that the second earth is intended by God to serve as a parable for regenerated man. Those who are born again of the Spirit of Christ are said to be “new creations” even as we consider the earth that was reformed beginning in Genesis 1:3 to be a new creation.

II Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

In actuality, however, regenerated man is the Adamic man re-born. We still inhabit the same bodies in which sin is present, but light has now come, and the presence of God is making all things new for us. Similarly, in the second earth we find that light returned, but there was still evil present among the creation, for the serpent was in the Garden, and Satan was actively seeking to lead humanity into sin.

As Christians we live an existence that parallels the second earth. There is warfare present in our members between good and evil, light and darkness. This condition cannot continue forever, even as this present earth, even when it is under the rule of Christ as it will be in the Millennial period, cannot continue in its present form. A complete and final end must be made to sin, darkness, and evil.

Peter tells us that this present heaven and earth are being reserved for fire. They must be consumed. This will be a far more thorough judgment than what occurred in Genesis 1:2 when the earth was made formless, void, and sealed in darkness. This present physical world must be completely done away with. Similarly, these mortal bodies that know sin and death must also be destroyed in order than we might receive new glorified bodies that will no longer no sin or death.

I Corinthians 15:53-54
For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

The third and last earth which has no seas and no darkness is symbolic of the final and glorious state of man. Seas represent death throughout the Scripture. When the Israelites crossed through the sea after departing Egypt, the apostle Paul states that they were “baptized into Moses” (I Corinthians 10:1-2). Baptism is symbolic of dying and being resurrected to new life. When we go under the water we die. When we come back up out of the water it is symbolic of entering into new life. The last earth cannot have any seas, for there will be no death. Similarly, mankind must lay aside these mortal and corruptible bodies and put on that which is immortal and incorruptible.

The illustration above shows the three creations of the earth and man. There is the first man Adam in his innocence. He corresponds to that first earth that was before the fall of Satan and prior to sin entering the creation.

There is the fallen man. He finds his correspondence to the earth after sin. Everything is formless, void, and covered in darkness.

We then see redeemed man, those who are new creations in Christ. This new creation man finds his correspondence to the earth that has been created anew in Genesis 1:3 and following. It is the earth we now live on, and the condition of this man is observed in those who have been born again of the Spirit of Christ and have become partakers of the divine nature. Nevertheless, these ones find that sin still dwells in their flesh. Death is still at work in the physical body.

Finally, we see the glorified man who has laid aside the body made of dust and has received a new immortal and incorruptible body. This man finds his correspondence in the new earth that will appear after this present earth is consumed in fire. It is an earth without seas, without death, without sin. All is radiant, glorious, righteous and holy.

At this time, there is only one man who has arrived at this final, glorious state. That man is Yahshua the Messiah. He has passed through death into life. Death no longer has any hold over Him. He is never to die again. The apostle Paul refers to Christ as “the last Adam” and the last earth serves as a symbol of His glorious condition. This glorified condition is also the promised future condition of those who have been born again of the Spirit of Christ, and who are putting the flesh to death.

I John 3:2-3
Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

How then do we complete the divine numerical pattern by identifying seven distinct divisions of the earth’s existence? Kenneth F. McKinley, in his book Scanning the Plan, breaks down the three creations of the earth into seven subsidiary states.

(1) Original Earth
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). This earth was created prior to sin’s appearance. Satan had not yet fallen, and the heavens and earth were at peace.

(2) Chaotic Earth

“But the earth became formless and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep” (Genesis 1:2). This is the earth after the fall of Satan. The length of time which the earth lay under this judgment is not known. Being sealed in darkness, this was likely a period in which the earth was covered in ice, corresponding with evidence of an ancient ice age.

(3) Adamic Earth

“Then God said, ‘Let there be light’” (Genesis 1:3). This is the re-created earth as described in Genesis chapters one and two, before the fall of man. The earth is a paradise. There is no rain, but a mist arose from the ground to water the earth (Genesis 2:6). Mankind has not sinned, but Satan is present upon the earth.

(4) Pre-Flood Earth
“Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you shall eat the plants of the field by the sweat of your face...” (Genesis 3:17-19). This is the earth after Adam sinned. Sin and death have now entered the creation. The earth no longer gives forth abundantly.

(5) Present Earth

This is the earth after the flood of Noah. It is an earth under human government. After the flood Yahweh shortened man's life span from a thousand years to one hundred-twenty years (Genesis 6:3). This present state of the earth will continue until the millennial reign of Christ.

(6) Millennial Earth

“Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years” (Revelation 20:6). During this period Satan will be bound. Christ will reign upon the earth with His overcoming saints. Sin and death will still be present, but greatly mitigated.

Isaiah 65:20
There shall no more be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who dies prematurely; for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner who dies when only a hundred years old shall be [thought only a child, cut off because he is] accursed.
(Amplified Bible)

After a thousand years Satan will be loosed and war and judgment will result once more. The present earth will be consumed with fire. Then will come the third and final creation of the earth, which will also be the seventh state of the earth.

(7) New Earth
There will be no sea on the new earth. Seas represent death, and death will be no more. These seven states of the earth conform to the septenary (seven fold) design which God has imprinted upon the creation.

It is apparent that in each of these seven stages of the earth that a significant change has occurred. The creation cannot be complete until it fulfills the divine numerical design. Even as the Creator has revealed Himself in the numbers one, three, and seven, so too must the earth, and the man who was formed from the dust of the earth, bear this same imprint. All that is full and complete is marked by these numbers.

Consider how this divine pattern is broken when one rejects the ruin/restoration doctrine of Genesis chapter one. We are left with only two distinct creations of the earth, and there are only five distinct states of the earth. The numbers two and five are not used by Yahweh to denote the perfection and completeness of the creation.

By itself, the evidence I have presented here of the mathematical pattern Yahweh has designed into His creation is insufficient to establish, or prove doctrine. Yet, when such a profound pattern is observed as one studies the Scriptures, it can serve as one more affirmation of the truth.
