The Rapture is Close, Right at the Door... - By pastor Mike Taylor - https://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/2023/02/when-rapture.html
"New King James Version"
The Faithful Church
7 “And to the [e]angel of the church in Philadelphia write,
‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, [f]and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept [g]My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 [h]Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
As the times, and the clouds of end of this Age grow and become dark and more ominous, people wonder if the Tribulation has already begun. Emails sent to me discuss the coming Tribulation and their views. With so many different variations of men’s beliefs and interpretations, based on the curious minds of human beings that “want to know”, as all variations can’t be true, as there is only one truth. To understand the truth of God’s Word and know why it is what we believe, and why we believe it, I have encouraged people to not believe any tradition, denomination, or their favorite preacher or evangelist in church or on TV’s Christian based programs, but to believe their bible. It is a tendency for men to take a passage of scripture and try to line it up with current events, much like a newspaper reporter, and make a doctrinal thesis on that investigation. Now, I don’t believe God has a problem with men being curious and investigating what God’s Word means, as if they rely on the Holy Spirit to lead them, they will come to the knowledge of the Truth. He uses that time to make the belief of the Truth more solid within their spirit and in their minds.
So it has been as some question the following: “are we approaching the 6th seal judgment and 5 seals have already been opened?” They postulate that is it possible that with the wars, famine, pestilence of old diseases coming back and new ones being formed, and the mess the world is in today with this “Coronavirus”, are those seal judgments being fulfilled right now as we speak? Are they? I look to the whole of God’s Word, not just one passage to deny their premise. We are not in the middle of the tribulation and here is why.
Dispensationalism, God dealing with Israel and the Church Separately.
What I feel my brothers and sisters in Christ fail to recognize is that God is dealing with men as a plan of redemption by working with men in dispensations, called Dispensationalism. What is Dispensationalism? The short definition and you can find a full explanation in places such as Wikipedia or Google it, but Dispensationalism is an approach to biblical interpretation which states that God uses different means of working with people (Israel and the Church) during different periods of history, usually seven chronologically successive periods. However, dispensational division of history varies among its adherents from three periods, to four, seven, and even eight dispensations. For brevity, I’m going to cut that down a bit, as God has worked with two sets of people for nigh 4000 years, the nation of Israel and His body, His Bride, the True Church of the Living God..
From the Beginning...short version
From the time that God made Adam and Eve and their subsequent fall from grace, God has dealt with created mankind known as the Nations. Everyone knows the history from there to Noah, and beyond Noah and the flood until He called out a man called Abraham and made an everlasting covenant with him and his descendants. The nation of Israel was God’s focus to be a Holy Nation, a kingdom of priest until the coming of their Messiah and a fulfillment of righteousness. But as men are imperfect, Israel transgressed God’s law (given to Moses) and fell into idolatry, until God sent them into captivity to Babylon. There God made a promise to the prophet Daniel :
24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined."(Daniel 9:24-26)
The ark angel, Gabriel, as a messenger of God came to Daniel and told him what the future would hold for the nation of Israel. From the time of their captivity, as Gabriel spoke, there would be 490 years that would bring Israel to behold their Messiah and the Kingdom Age offered, thus righteousness restored and the end of transgressions against God's law. This promise was given to Israel and no one else of humanity. History shows that exactly 483 years transpired when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a foal of a donkey and the people proclaimed Him their Messiah King crying “Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.”
Within just a few short days, Jesus would be falsely charged with religious crimes, tried in a kangaroo court, and sentenced to death on a cross. At that moment when Jesus died that clock of that dispensation, the Age of the Law, stopped. After His resurrection, Jesus would be with them 40 days and tell them to tarry in Jerusalem until the Comforter would come, God's Holy Spirit. The Feast of Pentecost, 10 days later, is when the Church was born, and God’s focus turned to building His church, to take a people who were not His people of the nations, the Gentiles and a few believing Jews, and build the Body of Christ. He has been doing that now, for near 2000 years. Thus was the beginning of the Age of Grace found in Jesus. But in the Age of Grace that we are in is fast approaching completion, God still has made a promise to Israel for a complete 70 weeks, or 490 years to complete and make an end to transgressions. God does not change and He does not go back on His Word.
WHEN THE RAPTURE?
As we approach the coming end of the Age of Grace, and the Tribulation draws closer to beginning, the matter of God focusing on His church will abruptly stop and His Bride will be removed. That will leave the final seven years promised to Israel to be carried out. Understand one thing, my reader, God has never focused on Israel and the Church at the same time. When His work is complete and that last soul is safely aboard the ark of salvation, known as Jesus Christ, that ark will leave port of this earth, and we will forever be with the Lord Jesus....Then and only then, will God turn His focus back to Israel. To include the church in the first half, or any part of the first 3.5 years is to change the way God has been dealing with the redemption of mankind in dispensations and is not what God promised to Israel. Further understand, that the coming Tribulation is designed for 2 things, and 2 things only and that is God will refine Israel as silver is refined in the furnace until purified, and to destroy completely, all rebellion against His Holy Name and His Son, Jesus Christ.
2 “But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.
4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years.”(Malachi 3:2-4)
God has previously worked with Israel solely, or with the church exclusively, but NEVER at the same time. When the first seal is broken in Chapter 6 of Revelation, God the Son begins to open the title deed to what He has bought with His own precious blood, redemption of the earth and His creation of mankind. Some try to state that the first 5 seals are the wrath of man and Satan, and the that God’s Wrath does not start until the 6th seal. But notice that it is God that is causing these events to come to pass by each seal He opens. It is not man or Satan who is causing these events, but Jesus, the Son of God Himself. It is the beginning of His righteous wrath upon a rebellious human kind against His laws, and against His only payment for that rebellion, Jesus Christ. It is a time of famine and wars that God will use men to enact His righteous judgment, just like He used Assyria and Babylon to bring judgment on Israel when they were driven into exile. The doctrine is completely pre-tribulation in it’s view and the ONLY one that makes sense, as we will see as we go along.
ISRAEL AND THE COMING TRIBULATION
Of all the books of the Bible, Revelation gives the Christian the most problems with it's symbols, word pictures, and prophetic messages of the time we are fast approaching. One must divide the books into two distinct populations. I believe that God is speaking of the Church at the beginning of the book, and then makes a dramatic shift of focus to the rebellious Gentile nations and the nation of Israel. I see a common thread that flows through the whole of Revelation and that is God putting down all rebellion during this period of 7 years and the refining of Israel and making her ready to accept her Messiah, at long last.
After chapter 4, the churches and those redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ during the Age of Grace, are not mentioned again till chapter 19, not one time. Suddenly, the focus is turned to judgment of a world devoid of God and violating willfully His commandments. Then in chapter 7, God by His Holy Spirit reveals to John the main characters of this book. Let us take a look at a common thread that follows in the coming chapters that point to only one set of people....the nation of Israel or God's elect.
144,000 EVANGELIST ORDAINED BY GOD
In chapter 7, God names the tribes of Israel that are symbolically 12,000 coming from each of the 12 tribes of Israel. In the bible, numbers are used as signs of perfection. Three is the sign of Divine perfection, seven is spiritual perfection, ten is the sign of ordinal perfection, and the number 12 is the sign of government perfection and is used throughout the bible as that sign of perfection. The number 144,000 from 12 tribes is 12x12 or 144 and thousand is given as a great number. Will it be just 144,000 when Israel and the scattered Jewish people amount to approximately 13 million people? I think that the symbolism points to Israel a nation as a whole. This symbolism is carried out numerous times within your bible, to emphasize that the focus of this book is on Israel. Apart from Israel, the rest of the nations are in divine judgment and we read horrific descriptions of the devastation brought on by this Divine wrath. Notice in the latter parts of chapter 7, we see a vast number of saints innumerable standing before the throne of God.
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;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”(Revelation 7:9-17)
John is introduced to the nation of Israel and the evangelist that were being sealed with the seal of God, 12,000 from each of the twelves tribes. He then sees a great multitude that are standing in white robes and “palm fronds” in their hands. They speak different languages and come from all portions of the earth. These are the martyred saints of God from all the people of Israel or of Jewish birth that have believed in their Messiah through these seven terrible years, called the Tribulation. As I have identified in past sermons, palms fronds in the hands of these saints are a sign noted of Israel exclusively. Not the church, but saints of God or Tribulation saints, nonetheless.
But also notice that they will serve in the Temple of God, night and day, and He that sits on the throne shall dwell among them. They are not kings and priests unto God as noted in chapter 4 and the 24 elders pictured as the glorified Church saints are, but are to serve God in His temple unlike what John then writes in chapter 5 about the church saints ruling and reigning on the earth,
5:9 "And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."(Revelation 5:9-10)
Notice the difference?
But let’s us jump to Revelation, chapter 14, where this same group of people are examined again and John describes them.
14:1 "And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth."(Revelation 14:1-3)
Only these people can sing this song. They are the tribulation saints, the elect of God or the nation of Israel who have embraced their Messiah at long last and have died for that belief, much like the 12 apostles before them. They died preaching the Gospel to all who would listen. The church cannot sing this song, as we are not Israel. We are not of the 144,000 saints as a symbol of the martyred nation of Israel. Some will say, in error I might add, that we are Israel. That is Replacement Theology and Israel has never been cast away. God has not replaced Israel, just set them aside, as noted in the opening verses of this message, till this time in history to turn His attention to them solely, as the church has been completed. God has promised that He would save ALL of Israel, not losing one!
As the Apostle Paul wrote in Hebrews:
15 "Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."(Hebrews 10:15-17)
Again in Romans a sole promise to Israel,
25 "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sake."(Romans 11:25-28) (the promise God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.)
Returning to Revelation:
4 "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God."(Revelation 14:4-5)
Some say, ahah, see? It says being first fruits to God and to the Lamb. It can't mean that we arrived prior to them, as they came as first fruits. What they fail to understand, is that I believe and there is good evidence to support this, that God works in what I proposed at the beginning of this message, in dispensations. The church age has ended 7 years before. This is the time of Jacob's trouble and God turning His focus on Israel, as the time of the Gentiles has ended...We are the Gentiles that have been saved out of the earth. We are a people that were not His people, but because of Israel's unbelief and rejection of their Messiah, the Kingdom was given to another. We are the people of the Kingdom of God, or the children of the living God.....,
42 "Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof."(Matthew 21:42-43)
Paul makes a startling statement by the power of the Holy Spirit in Romans,
24 "Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
25 As he saith also in Osee, (Hosea), I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God."(Romans 9:24-26)
We are the first fruits at the coming of the Lord for the Gentile Age, or the age of the Church, a dispensation also called the Age of Grace. When these who stand on Mt. Sion are considered first fruits of the Trials of Jacob, also known as Jacob's troubles and will be called Tribulation Saints during the end of the Age of the Law. This is re-emphasized in chapter 15 in the following:
2 "And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints."(Revelation 15:2-3)
Now this is not to say that some besides only Jewish people will heed the call of the 144,000 evangelist, but the likelihood of that fact grows smaller and less likely, as the focus is on Israel, not on the Gentile nations. God will save many left behind Gentiles, but this time is not His focus...it is Israel and the extinguishing of all rebellion on this earth and to reclaim His creation. Both Jew and Gentile will be saved out of this period of the Age of the Law, but many will die a martyrs death.
THE CHURCH RETURNS WITH OUR LORD IN VICTORY
As we progress into the prophecy and the events that will destroy upwards of 80% of all mankind by divine wrath, we come near to the end of God's judgment and John's vision of the marriage supper of the Lamb and the revealing of the bride of Christ. Until this time, the church and it's saints have not been mentioned, not one time since beginning chapter 6. Here John writes so of the bride by these words:
7 "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God."(Revelation 19:7-9)
Then at the culmination of the great feast in Heaven, where the bride is presented in linen white and clean, one final judgment is still in need of fulfillment. We, His chosen bride, the saints of the most High, come back to earth with our Husband, our King, our God which comes in full war cry and as a roaring Lion to avenge the earth for treatment of His people and to squash completely the rebellion on this earth.
11 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
Almighty God, our Savior and King, will make short work of rebellion on this earth of the final battle called Armageddon. Why is His vesture dipped in blood? It is not His blood, but the blood of those He has slain in divine wrath and beaten down in the wine press of His righteous wrath for the last 7 years is what I believe. Here He will finish the slaying of unrepentant, lawless mankind till blood rises to the bridles of the horses they ride in a valley that is 200 miles long by 30 miles wide. This is His final coming to rule and reign with a rod of iron. He will rescue His people Israel that have endured to the end.
19 “And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”(Revelation 14:19-20)
Thus ends the Wrath of God when Jesus takes total control of this earth, and sets up His Millennial Kingdom to last for the next 1000 years, and a Sabbath rest imposed for Satan and his evil and a rest for the earth.
Then all of Israel will be reconciled unto their King and Lord, Savior and Almighty God.
21 “And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.” (Ezekiel 37:21-28)
TRIBULATION LOOMS ON THE HORIZON
Tribulation for Israel has ended. Jesus made a promise to Israel to loose not one, but save them all. If you are reading this, can you say the same? If you be Gentile, meaning not of Jewish heritage or birth, have you the same promise? No, you do not. The end of a dispensation of the church comes quickly. Tribulation is at our doorsteps. Jesus is right now still at the door knocking waiting for those who hear to open the door to His call. When that final call comes out, and He proclaims, “Come up here”, then time for the church will have stopped as we have entered eternity. Won't you join us? When Tribulation comes in earnest that makes these hard times pale in comparison, then hope of an eternal reward in Heaven to be with our Lord and Savior becomes less and less likely. I want to repeat this fact. Tribulation is designed to do two things, and two things only. That is to purify Israel to prepare them for their coming Messiah, and to destroy all aspects of lawlessness and rebellion of a sinful Gentile nation. Tribulation is coming, and the times are dark, but the coming time is a time beyond any of our imaginations when God said that with His full wrath unleashed, that if it were not stopped, NO MAN would survive, but for the elect, it will be stopped short of total annihilation. The Church is NOT part of this wrath.
9 "For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do." (1st Thessalonians 5:9-11)
Or when Jesus spoke:
36 "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke chapter 21:36)
10 “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” (Revelation 3:10)
9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1st Corinthians 2:9)
Will you be in that number, the ones destroyed for eternity and thrown into a Lake of Fire burning with brimstone and sulfur? Don't let that happen. Make that decision for Jesus Christ to come into your life right now. Pray the Holy Spirit to guide you into believing on the Name that is above every name, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. The Tribulation hour is coming, as the salvation clock is seconds before Midnight and the end of the age, the Age of Grace will end. Wrath is coming.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”(John 3:16-18)
8 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:8-13)

Economic Deception & Something Big Stirring – Amir Tsarfati - https://harbingersdaily.com/worldview-with-amir-tsarfati-economic-deception-something-big-stirring/
Shalom from Israel! I am here today with our Behold Israel tour group experiencing the picturesque old city of Jerusalem. There is so much beauty and history within its ancient walls. But more than that, there is the strong presence of the Holy Spirit as He draws closer to the Father those seeking to experience firsthand the setting of so much of the Scriptures. I love to witness the faces of God’s people light up as they see passages they’ve grown up reading suddenly come to life before their eyes. That is what kept me so passionate about my work as I led Holy Land tours for so many years.
Israel Opens Embassy 15 Miles from Iran’s Border
Last night, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen flew to Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, where he will open an embassy in the central Asian state.This capital city is located just 15 miles from Iran’s northeast border making the embassy Israel’s closest official presence to the terrorist Islamic regime. Prior to departing to Ashgabat, Cohen spent time in Baku, Azerbaijan, deepening relations with the Shiite-majority country. While Azerbaijan supplies Israel with 30 percent of its oil imports and, allegedly, access across its borders for intelligence operations, Jerusalem in return provides military weapons to Baku. Iran is busy building relationships with proxy militias in various countries. Israel, on the other hand, is spending its time strengthening ties with actual countries. For more information on this momentous occurrence in Turkmenistan as well as other very important happenings, please watch my Breaking News Update from yesterday.
The IDF’s Calm Before the Storm
Today, Ramadan will end. Then, next week Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) will begin Monday, followed by Yom Ha’atzmaut (Independence Day) beginning Tuesday. Once those days of remembrance and celebration are complete, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) will be free to carry out whatever is necessary to protect our nation. The activity at Ramat David Airbase near my house is unprecedented. Something big is getting ready to happen.
Cyberattack and Terror Attack Hit Israel
Anonymous Sudan, a hacker group, celebrated Quds Day on Friday by launching a cyberattack against Israel. The websites of some banks, the post office, the electricity company, and the red alert warning app were all affected to various extents. Then, on Tuesday, two ultra-Orthodox men were driving home from morning prayers when a man ran up to their car and began shooting. Both victims were wounded, while the perpetrator escaped on foot.
Israel’s Credit Rating Outlook Takes a Hit
Moody’s Investors Service weighed in on Israel’s judicial reform by lowering the country’s credit outlook from “positive” to “stable”. Said Moody’s Senior Vice President Kathrin Muehlbronner, “The only driver for our rating action last Friday were the events around the government’s plans for judicial changes [which] have shown us that, in Israel, you can have a government that is willing to take pretty significant risks with economic and social stability.” Thank you, Ms. Muehlbronner, for your opinion. Like most nations, we Israelis are always appreciative of outside organizations sticking their noses into our internal struggles. While the country’s credit outlook was affected, Israel’s credit rating itself remains at A1.
US Republican Senator Visits Saudi Crown Prince
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham took a trip to visit Saudi Arabia, a country he vowed to never step foot in or do business with. Once stepping foot in the country, however, he appeared to have found a nation and a Crown Prince with whom he is ready to do business. He praised the progress Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has made in his Vision 2030 cultural reform program. He also thanked the nation for its purchase of South Carolina-made 787 Boeing jets worth $36 billion. Rumors are that political metrics are still being run as to whether the two previous sentences have anything to do with each other. Crown Prince MBS stated an openness to continued friendship with the US. However, there are three conditions he has put forward. First, Saudi Arabia wants some sort of a US security agreement against hostilities from Iran. As much as the two countries currently pretend at liking each other, the only country Iran hates more than Israel is Saudi Arabia. Second, Riyadh wants free trade with America. Finally, the Saudis want a nuclear program of their own, supervised and provided by the US.
American Helicopter Raid Kills ISIS Leader
US Central Command forces killed senior ISIS leader Abd-al-Hadi Mahmud al-Haji Ali on Monday during a helicopter raid in northern Syria. The raid was specifically targeted against the ISIS leader after intelligence learned of a plot to kidnap officials abroad to hold as leverage.
Quds Day Fizzles
Threats against Israel from the radical Muslim world abounded as Al-Quds Day drew near. This day, celebrated on the final Friday of every Ramadan is named after Jerusalem, or “the Holy” (in Arabic al-Quds), and was created by Ayatollah Khomeini after his 1979 revolution to put focus on the fact that there were all these Jews cluttering up the Holy City. The vitriol was particularly spicy from Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, who called for wide-spread marches and demonstrations throughout the Muslim world. However, the promised violence against Israel never came. It is one thing to talk a big game; it is another to go up against the IDF.
Iran Admits Responsibility in Rocket Attacks
How did you spend Iranian Army Day on Tuesday? Commander of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps Hossein Salami celebrated by making a speech in which he admitted Iran’s responsibility in guiding their proxy militias in Syria, Gaza, and Lebanon to fire rockets at Israel earlier this month. The major general said that the attack was revenge for the deaths of two Iranian advisers killed in IDF airstrikes in Syria. He also took joy in warning that some shadowy persons have managed to arm Palestinian militants in the West Bank.
Economic Deception by Iran Discovered
Iran was very proud of its amazing economic recovery. The data provided by the country to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) ranked it as 17th in the world. There was only one problem – the data was fake. Once the real numbers were considered, Iran instead ranked only 43rd in the world for GDP and 124th when it came to per capita income. Mr. Supreme Leader, we’d like to give you the benefit of the doubt that maybe it was just some rounding error that bumped your numbers up by $630 billion. I’d recommend hiring better accountants, but I recognize that times seem to be tight for you right now.
Turkey Grows Its Presence in Old City Jerusalem
The government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is intentionally trying to build up the Turkish presence in the old city of Jerusalem. Visitors are being sponsored to come, set up shop, and stay. Whether it is through charity work or employment in the hostel restaurant and the Islamic Center that the Ankara administration has purchased, the goal is to expand Turkish influence. Erdogan still dreams of being the guardian of Sunni Islam in a reconstituted Ottoman Empire. This fits well with the Ezekiel 38 prophecy that sees Russia partnering with Turkey, Iran, Sudan, and soon, Libya.
Japanese Prime Minister Survives . . . Something
As Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida attended a political event, a device resembling a pipe bomb was thrown towards him. The cylinder dropped to the ground with a loud bang and began to emit smoke. Kishida was hustled from the scene. A 24-year-old suspect was arrested on the scene and charged with the innocuous-sounding “obstruction of business”. What first appeared by all to be an assassination attempt on a state official now seems to be either a prank or a protest of some sort. The suspect is remaining mum on his motives.
Sudan on the Brink of Civil War
Back in October 2021, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and General Mohamed Hamdan “Hemedti” Dagalo united their forces to mount a coup to oust a transitional council that itself was established two years earlier during a revolution. Al-Burhan took over as sole leader with Hemedti as his right-hand man. But having two alphas doesn’t make for a happy kennel. Now the two generals are fighting each other in the streets of Khartoum leading to the deaths of at least 180 citizens. The belief is that if this continues much longer the country will descend into a bloody civil war.
Russian Ghost Ships Loiter in Nordic Waters
“Russian Ghost Ships” sounds like the title of a Franz Kafka play or a novel by Nikolai Gogol. Instead, these mystery boats are very real and are sailing around the waters near Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden. What gives them their ghoulish descriptor is that they have turned off their Automatic Identification System (AIS). Thus, while everyone knows they are out there somewhere, no one is quite sure where that somewhere is. It is believed that Moscow is using these boats to map the locations of internet and power cables, oil pipelines, and wind farms in the Nordic waters. The head of Denmark’s counter-espionage department and the head of Norway’s intelligence agency both say that they are ready to intervene if Russia tries anything against their countries’ infrastructure.
Taiwan Purchases Anti-Ship Weapons from America
The Pentagon has announced a $1.17 billion contract with Taiwan for 400 Harpoon land-launched anti-ship missiles. The weapons are primarily for addressing the growing concern with Chinese belligerence. Production is expected to take until 2029.

Senators introduce bill to create digital identity for all Americans – Leo Hohmann - https://leohohmann.com/2023/04/20/senators-introduce-bill-to-create-digital-identity-for-all-americans/
U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema, an independent of Arizona, and Cynthia Lummis, Republican of Wyoming, have introduced Senate Bill 884, also known as “the Improving Digital Identity Act of 2023.”
The bill was introduced March 21 and ordered to proceed out of committee on March 29 without amendments and with a favorable recommendation.
The bill’s text states:
“The lack of an easy, affordable, reliable, and secure way for organizations, businesses, and government agencies to identify whether an individual is who they claim to be online creates an attack vector that is widely exploited by adversaries in cyberspace and precludes many high-value transactions from being available online. Incidents of identity theft and identity fraud continue to rise in the United States, where more than 293,000,000 people were impacted by data breaches in 2021.”
The bill calls for the formation of a public-private partnership to bring this digital ID system into being.
“The public and private sectors should collaborate to deliver solutions that promote confidence, privacy, choice, equity, accessibility, and innovation. The private sector drives much of the innovation around digital identity in the United States and has an important role to play in delivering digital identity solutions.”
The bill references the bipartisan Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, which has called for the federal government to “create an interagency task force directed to find secure, user-friendly, privacy-centric ways in which agencies can serve as 1 authoritative source to validate identity attributes in the broader identity market. This action would enable Government agencies and the private sector to drive significant risk out of new account openings and other high-risk, high-value online services, and it would help all citizens more easily and securely engage in transactions online.”
The above section of the bill is extremely vague and left wide open for bureaucrats and technocrats to require a digital ID to perform any function considered “high-risk, high-value online services,” up to and including logging onto the internet.
Globalists with ties to the United Nations and World Economic Forum have for several years advocated a digital ID requirement as a way of removing so-called “disinformation” from the internet. Once everyone has a digital ID, it becomes easy to restrict everyday human movement and activity based on one’s social credit score, like in China, which Klaus Schwab has stated is the model for many other nations. If your score dips below a certain point, you are now a “high risk” individual, and your digital ID would simply be flagged. The government, working in collusion with Big Tech in their ongoing public-private partnership, simply block you from logging onto the internet. You can no longer have a bank account, get a driver’s license, receive healthcare, obtain a passport, or any of those other “high risk” privileges.
We have already seen how the government worked hand in glove with Big Tech and corporate America to silence dissidents on vaccines, vaccine passports, masking and lockdowns during the pandemic. In Canada, the government worked with banks to freeze the bank accounts of protesting truckers. The whole Covid experience was a dry run for the coming beast system where you won’t be able to buy or sell without showing proof of submission to the system. Digital IDs, in tandem with the coming digital money, will be weaponized into a global enforcement system the likes of which the world has never seen.
These intrusive, invasive attempts to digitize humanity and reduce us to a QR code always come with the same sweet-sounding selling points. It will make our lives easier, more convenient, more safe and secure. We will even have more “privacy” Senator Sinema assures us!
Sinema, it’s important to note, was present at the 2022 Bilderberg meeting and at the 2023 World Economic Forum meeting at Davos. She’s quickly becoming one of the darlings of the global technocracy movement, said Patrick Wood, editor in chief of Technocracy.news and a resident of Arizona.
“She is emerging as one of the most dangerous women in America,” Wood told me.
The head of the proposed new task force charged with creating the digital ID, according to Senate Bill 884, would be appointed by the president.
The Senate bill states that the task force will “establish and coordinate a government-wide effort to develop secure methods […] to improve access and enhance security between physical and digital identity credentials, particularly by promoting the development of digital versions of existing physical identity credentials, including driver’s licenses, e-Passports, social security credentials, and birth certificates.”
This is right in line with globalist World Economic Forum kingpin Klaus Schwab’s pronouncement in his book, COVID-19: The Great Reset, that the human existence is evolving to the point where there will be “a fusion of our physical, digital and biological identities.”
And our politicians, both liberal and conservative, will be on board with this. It’s the “innovative” thing to do and, after all, they’re just trying to protect us, right?
When first introduced in 2022, Senator Sinema said, “We’re supporting innovation and enhancing privacy by improving digital verification to combat identity theft, fraud, and cybercrime.”
It sounds so good!
Senator Lummis added:
“Technology has the potential to dramatically improve the security and privacy of identity credentials, and enable easier access to the financial system. It doesn’t make sense that Americans have to constantly overshare sensitive identity information with government agencies and businesses, which are honeypots all too often targeted by hackers and identity thieves. I’m proud to work with my friend and colleague Sen. Sinema to introduce the Improving Digital Identity Act of 2022 to work toward digital identity standards that protect our privacy and give Americans more control over their identity.”
Other senators have also called for the creation of a national digital ID system.
Winepress News reported that Congressman Barry Loudermilk, a conservative Georgia Republican, said in 2021 while pushing for similar legislation:
“COVID-19 changed a lot of the way Americans live, work, and provide for our families, and we have become even more reliant on digital commerce platforms. But with more Americans adapting to a ‘new normal’ in the way we go about purchasing life necessities, this also means more Americans’ personally identifiable information [PII] is at risk of being stolen.”
If this bill passes, you can bet Biden will sign it. Such a bill would require, no matter how gradually, the system’s obedient subjects to show their digital papers in order to perform ever more functions in society until they end up as digitally marked slaves to their elitist masters. They will have handed over ownership of their very identity to the beast system.
Never comply. Never submit. Stay awake. Stay free.
Legends, Lore, and Logic - Jack Kinsella - https://www.rev310.net/post/legends-lore-and-logic
I received an email from a reader asking for some information about the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Bible’s account of Noah’s Ark.
“I have some co-workers that argue that the Epic Of Gilgamesh shows evidence that the Genesis account of the Flood of Noah was taken from this document. I need some “ammunition” to refute this,” he wrote.
First, a little historical background. Gilgamesh was a historical king of Uruk in Babylonia, on the River Euphrates in modern Iraq.
Many stories and myths were written about Gilgamesh, some of which were written down on clay tablets that still survive. The oldest existing fragments date to about 2000 BC — roughly the time of Abraham.
The most complete surviving version of the Epic of Gilgamesh dates from the middle of the 6th century BC and was found in the ruins of the library of Ashram, king of Assyria at Nineveh.
The Gilgamesh Epic itself dates to about 2700 BC, say the experts, relying on the text of the surviving fragments.
In it, Gilgamesh meets Utnapishtim. Utnapishtim was granted immortality by the gods after he and his wife became the only human survivors of a worldwide flood, and Utnapishtim tells Gilgamesh the story.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is widely considered to be the oldest human composition ever found. By comparison, the first five Books of the Bible were penned by Moses around the 13th century BC, at least seven hundred years after the Epic of Gilgamesh had been in circulation.
Because the Gilgamesh story is older, the automatic assumption is that it was the inspiration for the Hebrew account of Noah’s Ark.
It sounds convincing, but only if one approaches it with a built-in bias. If one is looking for an alternative explanation for the Bible’s account, then Gilgamesh fits the bill.
On the other hand, if one is looking for the most logical explanation, then the entire argument collapses under its own weight.
There is a principle of logic attributed to the medieval philosopher William of Occam, commonly referred to as ‘Occam’s Razor’, also known as the ‘principle of parsimony’. It underlies all scientific modeling and theory building.
Occam’s Razor is a method by which to choose from a set of otherwise equivalent models of a given phenomenon the simplest explanation. In any given model, Occam’s razor helps us to “shave off” those concepts, variables or constructs that are not really needed to explain the phenomenon.
By doing that, developing the model will become much easier, and there is less chance of introducing inconsistencies, ambiguities and redundancies. In its shortest form, Occam’s Razor states that one should not make more assumptions than the minimum needed.
To beat a dead horse to death, let me simplify it even more: the simplest explanation is logically the most likely to be correct.
This isn’t an effort to ‘prove’ the Genesis account is true. I believe that it is true because it is the only logical explanation that fits the known facts.
The Epic of Gilgamesh tells the following story: In the time before the Flood, there was a city, Shuruppak, on the banks of the Euphrates. There, the counsel of the gods held a secret meeting; they all resolved to destroy the world in a great flood.
Gilgamesh may, however, be the explanation for the saying, the ‘walls have ears’.
All the gods were under oath not to reveal this secret to any living thing, but Ea (one of the gods that created humanity) came to Utnapishtim’s house and told the secret to the walls of Utnapishtim’s house, thus not technically violating his oath to the rest of the gods.
He advised the walls of Utnapishtim’s house to build a great boat, its length as great as its breadth, to cover the boat, and to bring all living things into the boat.
Utnapishtim, eavesdropping on the conversation, gets straight to work and finishes the great boat by the new year. Utnapishtim then loads the boat with gold, silver, and all the living things of the earth, and launches the boat.
Ea orders him into the boat and commands him to close the door behind him. The black clouds arrive, with the thunder god Adad rumbling within them; the earth splits like an earthenware pot, and all the light turns to darkness.
The Flood lasts for seven days and seven nights, and finally light returns to the earth. Utnapishtim’s boat comes to rest on the top of Mount Nimush.
The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Genesis account converge on several points, but one thing immediately leaps out. Gilgamesh’s account is a logical description from the perspective of man. It is an effort to put an ancient memory into an understandable historical context.
The Genesis account is a logical description of the same event from the perspective of God. The Genesis account fills in details missing from Gilgamesh that could be known only to God.
The Gilgamesh account is an effort to make sense of a global catastrophe — the Genesis account puts it into logical context, connecting the dots from Adam to the Rapture.
The Flood is a necessary part of the Bible’s outline of human history — remove it and the Scriptures lose all context. God’s promise to Noah is fulfilled at the Cross. The power of sin is destroyed, rather than the destruction of sinners.
Jesus refers to the ‘days of Noah’ to describe the last days, Peter uses the salvation of Noah as an example of the Rapture (2nd Peter 3:3-7)
The Genesis account provides answers. The Gilgamesh account only poses new questions.
Legends of a worldwide flood can be found in the folklore of such diverse places as the Middle East, India, China, Australia, southern Asia, the islands of the Pacific, Europe, and the Americas.
Was the Chinese legend of a global flood inspired by the Epic of Gilgamesh? Did the Australian Aborigines and the Native Americans read the Epic of Gilgamesh? The Pacific Islanders?
If the Flood is a myth, why does every civilization or culture share the same common, distant memory of a global catastrophe that NEVER happened? There must be a logical explanation. A Sumerian cuneiform tablet unknown until relatively recently doesn’t make the cut.
Occam’s Razor says that the only logical conclusion is that there must really have been a worldwide flood that a handful of survivors escaped by boarding a giant ark filled with animals that came to rest on a mountaintop after the waters receded. No other explanation fits the facts.
There are many differing accounts, but all are rooted in the same historical occurrence. If there were no Biblical account, it is likely that the Flood would be an accepted part of the human historical record, like dinosaurs or cavemen.
It is precisely BECAUSE the Bible says the Flood was a Divine judgment against sin that the Genesis account is so vigorously opposed by its critics.
Remove the references to an all-powerful God demanding personal accountability from His creation and a global flood is no more fantastic than concluding a giant asteroid hit the earth 85 million years ago and killed all the dinosaurs.
‘Stuff happens’ is a more comfortable conclusion to live with than personal accountability to an all-knowing and Perfect God. That is also perfectly logical, as Paul notes in Romans 1:28:
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind . . .”
The Genesis story fits a logical timeline, has a logical place in history, and answers the questions Gilgamesh does not, (like, who told the Australian aborigines there was a worldwide flood if it is really a myth?)
Occam’s Razor says the simplest explanation is also the most logical.
“. . . for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” (Isaiah 46:9-10)
Daily Jot: The American Chronicles: The Pink Cadillac - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
It’s October and the leaves are starting to change as we travel down Interstate 81 toward Natural Bridge, Va. The plan was to arrive early at the campground, set up camp and explore. That, however, was thwarted by a terrible wreck that had traffic stopped and backed up for several miles. We sat for over an hour and the traffic was moving pretty slow for another hour. By the time we took the exit for the Natural Bridge, we were tired, grumpy and hungry. Sadly, the sunny afternoon with which we had been blessed was dwindling toward the brisk evening air and the October sunset. We checked in at the campground, then drove to the nearest restaurant, as we were really hungry. When you’re hungry, you’re just not yourself.
The first thing you see coming off the exit is a pink 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood sitting under the sign for the Pink Cadillac Diner and the Budget Inn. We are kind of out in the middle of nowhere and this appears to be the only place to eat. Good thing we were spending the night in our travel van as the old block Budget Inn appeared dilapidated and unkept. And my confidence in the Pink Cadillac Diner wasn’t real high as we pulled into the uneven gravel parking lot. Chris went in to check it out while I walked Charlie. When Charlie and I got back to the van, Matt and his sister Sara were admiring it. So I struck up a conversation. Matt from Georgia and Sara from Florida were headed to Pennsylvania to get their mother and bring her to Florida for the winter. Sara said she had always wanted an Airstream and thanked me for showing it to her.
They had asked around where the best restaurant was, and were pointed to the Pink Cadillac by the locals. Said it was very good. Chris peaked out and gave the thumbs up, so Charlie and I went to meet her. The hostess, dressed in a T shirt and jeans, questioned about letting Charlie in—”he’s a “service” dog, you know. OK, no problem.” Stepping into the Pink Cadillac was like entering a time tunnel. Vinyl green and white tiles in one area, black and white in another, and there was a separate room where people could buy old time ice cream. We were seated at a classic 1950’s style chrome table with a vinyl table cloth in matching chrome seats. We were surrounded with artifacts from an era gone by. There were John Wayne movie posters and pictures of Elvis and other movie stars hanging on the walls.
A grand 1950s juke box that still played the songs was along another wall. A Texaco Fire Chief gas pump sat near our table, with that 23 cents a gallon price showing, I was longing for the days when I could trust my car to the man who wears the star! Chris got a chef’s salad and I had a spicey chiliburger with jalapeños and fries. Huge burger, cooked well. Great fries. The food was wonderful. The service down home with a sense of family and belonging. Just looking at the Pink Cadillac from the outside, we would have not normally chosen to eat there. But as is written in Psalm 107:9, the Lord “satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” We were hungry, tired and grumpy and the Pink Cadillac satisfied our longing souls! Come to find out much later, it’s listed as one of the top 50 diners in America.
Daily Devotion: Victory Through Faith - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. —1 John 5:4
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/victory-through-faith/ - Listen
During Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf, Americans learned about new technology such as smart bombs with pinpoint accuracy. We heard about missiles with cameras to show whether they hit their intended targets.
As we walk with God, the devil fires his so-called smart bombs at us. His flaming arrows are swift and silent. We don’t receive advanced warnings of the attacks. They come unexpectedly and at the most inopportune times.
They may come in the form of an impure thought, a moment of hatred, or an onslaught of fear and worry. And when we feel guilty for having these kinds of thoughts, our accuser, the devil, moves in for the kill.
He whispers, “How could you think about something like that? What’s wrong with you? What kind of a Christian are you?”
We need to understand that this is an enemy attack. It’s a barrage of flaming arrows. So, what are we supposed to do when this happens? The apostle Paul gives us the answer in Ephesians 6: “In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil” (verse 16 NLT).
Notice this is a shield of faith, not a shield of emotions. If we base our Christian life on fluctuating emotions, we will quickly suffer defeat. There will be times when we don’t feel God’s presence. There will be times when we don’t feel that great.
It is then that we come back to faith in what God has said and in His promises to us. It is then that we take God at His Word and believe.
The Bible tells us, “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith” (1 John 5:4 NLT). Faith is of paramount importance. As long as you believe God, you’re raising the shield of faith.
