Verse of the Week
But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors because of my name.
Thought for the Week
I do not usually delve much into prophetic interpretations but since it has become so popular of late I have written a little on the subject. The article In the Spotlight this week is the most recent example and deals with an aspect of the end times I feel is still being overlooked by most of the mainstream “Christian” media - perhaps because it is not a very politically correct aspect to deal with.
I try not to let my being a US American or politics in general influence the articles written for “In the Spotlight”; but, I make no such effort on this “front page” and offer no apologies for that.
There is another aspect of the end times that is missing from most of the mainstream “Christian” media. It is missing because it is information given to us by Jesus himself that runs counter to all the “tithe to us and get rich” schemes that fill most current mainstream “Christian” media. Reread the “Verse of the Week” above if you still do not understand. Jesus told us several times we would be persecuted if we followed him; but, as indicated in the verse above he specifically singled out this persecution as a precursor to the other “popular” events as signs of the end times.
It seems it is more profitable to sell books about Blood Moons than it is to tell Jesus’ followers to get ready to be hunted down as criminals. Watch all the programs you want and read all the books you like - just remember nothing replaces the guidance of YHWH’s Holy Spirit. Folks, even those who do not worship YHWH, seem fascinated by comparing the current increase in earthquakes, famines, plagues, and wars with prophecy - Biblical or otherwise. It seems many were actually disappointed to learn the Mayans missed the mark with 2012 - evens alleged “Christians” who should know better (Jesus was quite clear that only YHWH knows the time). Even Satan and his minions do not know when YHWH will send His son to return; but, that does not slow down their efforts to win.
The current rise in Islamic violence is for a reason. Mainstream “Christian” leaders are not the only ones cashing in on end times fever. Many Muslims believe the Mahdi is already on Earth and is waiting to appear. For them the end times have begun. There is a reason that the left wing liberal democrats cannot understand this threat from Islam. They do not understand faith in any god. They do not understand that the root cause is not economics - it is religious belief.
If you are a worshipper of YHWH then get ready to be considered a criminal AND to be treated as such. Also remember (or for some learn) what the true worshippers of YHWH are especially called to do in the end times: witness (Luke 21:13) - that means spread the Gospel of YHWH and Jesus the Christ (not the false apostle Paul)!
Governments will not protect you. In fact, as in the case of the US, they will continue to enslave you. Muslims are allowed, even encouraged, to lie to non-Muslims in the furtherance of Islam - just look at Obama. It is not ignorance - it is intention. The people of the US have become apathetic and complacent. Even if the end times are not near biblically speaking they are well under way for the people of the US and any other formerly free people. Voting has not worked; the tyrants continue to ignore the will of the people. There are only two options left: surrender or stand up for the right to worship YHWH our Creator!
Quote of the Week
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. -- Thomas Jefferson
Comment: The US government is making it a crime to live as a true follower of YHWH. Jesus became a felon when he stood for YHWH against Satan’s tyrants of Rome. Will you be a willing slave to a government run by Satan or a felon for worshipping YHWH?
