Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Rock Harbor Church Prophecy Update – 3/29/19


Published on Mar 29, 2019

Watchman Report: Rock Harbor Church Prophecy Update – 3/29/19 All the signs of the last days are converging at the same time. Bible Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, the predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Never, in the history throughout the world have so many forces, including economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral, spiritual and religion, converged together to bring this world that’s already teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return. Jesus said when you see all these signs happening, know that I am near, even at the door.




Keep in mind the word “Religion” in the Greek is “Religare” meaning “Bind back” or “yolk” – Christianity is not “bound” We are free in Jesus Christ our Saviour.
The one world church is being developed “quickly” already most countries are “ELIMINATING” THE Lords Prayer at their opening of Parliament – Australia and New Zealand included. The Muslim Religion will become the “ONE WORLD RELIGION” – And it is now being used in most opening addresses of Parliament.
Matt. 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Matt. 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
Rev. 3:10 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:





QUESTION:    I have been studying up on the fig tree parable. in Luke 21 and Matthew 24. Both passages mention the fig tree. Does the fig tree represent Israel or not? I’ve heard both ways and it sure makes more sense for the fig tree to represent Israel. Remember when Jesus put a curse on the fig tree that bore no fruit and the scripture that is mentioned in Jeremiah 24 about Israel as a fig tree? I’m so confused because isn’t Israel the tell-tale sign that we are the last generation? The generation that witnesses the budding of the fig tree will witness everything last thing? Can you explain this? Thank you!
ANSWER:    The fig tree is often used to represent Israel in the Bible. But I don’t think that’s the case in Matt 24:32, Mark 13:28, and Luke 21:29. In these cases the Lord was using the symbolism of a budding tree which indicates that summer is coming soon to explain that the appearance of the signs he had described would mean His return was very close. This is especially clear when you see that in Luke 21:29, he included all trees, not just the fig.
As for Israel being the pre-imminent sign of the End Times, Joel, Amos, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Zechariah and others all confirm this. And in Matt. 24 we see the mention of a Temple (Matt. 24:15), a reference to Judea, the Biblical name for Israel (Matt. 24:16), and the presence of a people there who are forbidden by law from fleeing on the Sabbath (Matt. 24:20) These are all indicators of an end times Jewish nation in the Promised Land. So we don’t need the fig tree to represent Israel in order to understand that the re-birth of the nation is the foremost sign that the End Times are upon us.

QUESTION:    I heard of a Vietnamese man who has been forced to recant his new found faith in Christ; he has signed a document saying he recants, but will also be required to sacrifice to his ancestors in order to publicly prove he has recanted. Matthew 10: 33 says that if we deny Christ before men he will deny us before the father. Would you please comment on this terrible situation, and also what relationship Matt 10:33 has to OSAS, in your opinion.
ANSWER:    God knows the motives of our heart. He also knows that fear can cause us to do things we wouldn’t otherwise do. The example of Peter’s denial is a good one (Matt. 26:69-75). Having denied the Lord 3 times in a single night, even after the Lord warned him about it, Peter was fully restored and became a leader in the early Church.
Under extreme duress, we can be forced to say or do just about anything. But no one can ever force us to change what we believe in our heart, and the Lord knew Peter’s heart was true. If that Vietnamese man has truly trusted the Lord for his salvation, then his tormentors have achieved a hollow victory at best, and he will be there when the Lord takes vengeance on them.
As for Matt. 10:33, it obviously applies to non-believers whose hearts are hardened against the Lord.

QUESTION:    You say that according to Rev. 14:9-12 everyone who worships the beast and his image or receives the mark of his name will be lost. Others have said they can be redeemed. I’m reminded of a book by C. S. Lewis that implies that nonbelievers choose their fate and their hearts are hard and won’t change. From this I’d think that those who take the mark do so willingly and no one is forced to take the mark. They may be given a choice but no one will take them down and give them the mark. Am I assuming to much?
ANSWER:    I agree with you. I think people who take the mark will do so willingly, as a sign of loyalty. Rev. 13:16 says the false prophet will cause people to take the mark, which means it will be his idea to require it. While the penalty for refusal will be severe, no one will be forced to take the mark against his or her will. Otherwise, a just God could not condemn the people who take it.

·        Foreigners EVACUATING Gaza; Israel Deploys ARTILLERY for 1st Time since 2014


By Yaakov Lappin –
Hamas is set to hold a mass march this Saturday to the Gazan-Israeli border to mark “Land Day,” an event that has the potential to transform into mass disturbances, which, in turn, could reignite Gazan rocket fire and Israeli military strikes.
In such a scenario, Israel may decide that air power alone is no longer sufficient to extinguish the rocket threat terrorizing southern Israeli civilians.
As a result, the Israel Defense Forces is keeping its massed infantry, artillery and armored units parked right on Gaza’s border, pointed at Hamas. The forces are ready at a moment’s notice to launch a ground maneuver to attack Hamas’s military wing in response to a new escalation.
These scenes are the latest act in a year-long Hamas campaign aimed at using controlled violence to achieve goals, in what Col. (ret.) Reuven Erlich, director of the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, described as a “kind of a war of attrition.”
“On March 30 a year ago, Hamas changed its policy, ending the relative quiet that existed from ‘Operation Protective Edge’ [in 2014] to that point,” Erlich told JNS. Up to that time, there were very few rocket attacks out of Gaza, he noted, describing this period as “the quietist time since Hamas came to power [in 2007].”
For a variety of reasons, Hamas then shifted its policy, initiating “controlled pressure,” said Erlich, based on the goal of shattering the calm, but avoiding a full-scale war with Israel.
“Hamas assesses that Israel, too, does not want to get dragged into a war. So it uses a variety of forms of violence—from border-rioting and sabotaging the security fence, sending explosives over the border tied to balloons, cross-border intrusions, rockets and rounds of escalation,” he stated.
With Hamas controlling the level of violence in line with its interests, the latest escalation, which began when a Hamas rocket destroyed an Israeli home north of Tel Aviv on March 25 and injured seven of its family members, now appears to be coming to a close.
The Israel Air Force struck several multi-story Hamas buildings in Gaza, leaving sites such as the offices of Hamas senior political leader Ismail Haniyeh in ruins, as well as Hamas’s military intelligence building and the headquarters of the regime’s internal security forces.
A shaky unofficial ceasefire, mediated by Egypt, took hold on Wednesday, though it began with much uncertainty, after an unidentified Gazan group broke it by firing rockets at southern Israel’s Eshkol region. This triggered IAF retaliation strikes on Hamas complexes, including a weapons’ production facility, and Hamas responded with rocket fire on Ashkelon overnight.
In total, Gazan armed factions fired 60 projectiles at southern Israel, with Iron Dome air defense batteries intercepting many that were heading into populated areas.
As the violence tapered off on Wednesday, Erlich warned that it could easily reignite on Saturday. “I would estimate that tens of thousands of Gazans will take part in the march. There could be lots of grenade-throwing, rioting and the potential for new rockets,” said Erlich.
Asked what he made of claims by Hamas sources that Monday’s rocket attack on an Israeli village well north of Tel Aviv was the result of a “mistake,” Erlich said “I am a very small believer in such mistakes. From ‘Operation Protective Edge’ until recently, there were no mistakes.
Now, there are multiple mistakes, and all sorts of rebellious Gazan groups outside of the Gaza consensus are also firing rockets. The important context is that in Gaza today, there is an atmosphere of violence towards Israel. I personally doubt this is a coincidence.”
The threat of future escalations morphing into a war is “very real,” he cautioned. “Hamas does not want to go all the way. But they are hitting the breaks less,” he said.
Hamas is ‘stuck in a maze of problems’
Brig. Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, director of the Project on Regional Middle East Developments at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and former head of the research division of IDF Military Intelligence, said it was important to examine the bigger picture of recent events.
“Hamas’s situation is that it is stuck in a maze of problems that it does not know how to get out of,” he said. “Sometimes, when it wants to ‘shout for help,’ it goes for the option of firing on Israel.”
Monday’s long-range rocket attack was not necessarily ordered by the Hamas leadership, but if someone in Hamas carried it out, “the rules of the game are that once the act is done, they close ranks and support it. They do not criticize action against ‘the cruel occupier,’ “ explained Kuperwasser.
Either way, Hamas’s situation is “severe,” he said. “Sure, they can hit Israel with rockets, but that does not alleviate their distress. They are in this position because of pressure from Egypt, from [Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud] Abbas, because of problems they have in improving life for Gaza’s population and because this population is coming out against them,” he assessed.
“They are facing real constraints in their goal of ‘liberating Palestine.’ No one among Hamas’s rank and file thinks they can ‘liberate Palestine’ by firing rockets. They believe they can destroy Israel in the long term, but not the short term,” he added.
Israel, in the meantime, is developing economically and technologically, said Kuperwasser. “Let’s not lose sight of the facts—Israel’s per capita income is 40,000 dollars, and its unemployment rate is 3.7 percent. It has one of the highest standards of living.
In Gaza, there are frustrated people who, instead of improving their situation in a positive way, are digging a bigger hole because of strange ideologies and corruption,” he said, describing Hamas’s leadership.
“Clearly, these are frustrated people. Some have demonstrated against Hamas itself. Some fire on Israel. They know it will not improve their situation. Haniyeh said Israel ‘understood the message’ today. What message? The [actual] message is that if Israel hits Hamas hard, they will stop firing. That is the message.”
Israeli civilians living in the vicinity of Gaza are justifiably frustrated with the ongoing security situation, and Israel needs to do more to make it clear to Gaza’s factions that “there is a cost to this limited violence,” said Kuperwasser. “We have not done that, and now we are paying [for it] by absorbing this violence. But this can change.”
Hamas understands that if it pushes Israel too hard, it will provoke a military operation that could threaten the survival of its regime, said Kuperwasser. Asked if Hamas could choose the “Sampson option” of crashing Gaza deliberately into Israel’s hands, the former intelligence officer said, “At this stage, they are clearly not there. That could change in the future, but chances are not high. We must be ready for everything. Israel has plans on what to do in such a case. It very much prefers not to activate them.”


Palestinians call for mass Gaza border protests on Saturday – Arab-Israeli Conflict
Factions in the Gaza Strip are urging Palestinians to participate in Saturday’s mass protests near the border with Israel afternoon prayers. The factions urged Palestinians on Thursday to “maintain the peaceful and popular nature” of the protests, and said they don’t want to give Israel an excuse to use force against the demonstrators.
Saturday’s protests marking the first anniversary of the “Great March of Return” weekly demonstrations coincides with Land Day, an annual day of commemoration of the events that took place in Israel in 1976 after the Israeli government’s decision to expropriate thousands of hectares in the Galilee.
The organizers said they are hoping that tens of thousands of Gazans will join the mass protests.
The call for mass participation in Saturday’s protests near the border with Israel came as Egyptian intelligence officials held talks in the Gaza Strip with leaders of various Palestinian groups, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, to discuss ways of averting an all-out confrontation between the Palestinians and Israel.
The Egyptian security delegation, headed by Gen. Ahmed Abdel Khaleq, arrived in the Gaza Strip late Wednesday. On Thursday afternoon, the delegation headed back to Israel to brief Israeli officials on the outcome of their talks with the Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip.
Sources in the Gaza Strip said that the Egyptian intelligence officials demanded that the Palestinian factions work towards preventing Palestinians from engaging in violence during Saturday’s protests. The Egyptians reportedly relayed a message from Israel to the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad to the effect that Israel will respond with full force to any attempt to infiltrate the border or harm its soldiers.
Husam Badran, a senior Hamas official in the Gaza Strip, said on Thursday that the weekly protests near the border with Israel will increase and expand in the coming days and weeks. He said that calm and stability on the Israeli side of the border with the Gaza Strip was “dependent on the extent of the Israeli government’s adherence to understandings that were reached to lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip.” The Israelis living near the border with the Gaza Strip will continue to live in anxiety as long as the Palestinians are suffering due to the blockade, he added



U.S. to put Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights on the map 
United States government maps are slated to be redrawn to reflect US President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, according to a report by Voice of America. 
A State Department spokesperson told VOA that the map changes would be “consistent” with Trump’s declaration, although he did not indicate how long it would take to make this change. US Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook, said the government would release them “as soon as they are ready.”
Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed it in 1981. Until now, no member of the international community has officially recognized Israeli sovereignty in the area. Since Trump made his decision – first announced on Twitter – and his declaration – signed a ratified a few days later – 14 out of 15 United Nations Security Council member states condemned the move. Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari told reporters the move was a “flagrant violation of international law.”
Until now, the State Department’s official maps labeled the Golan Heights as “Israeli-occupied,” according to the VOA report. 



IDF at peak readiness in Gaza sector, adds reinforcements after failed Egyptian truce bid
Israel’s armed forces around Gaza are at peak readiness for Hamas’ “March of the Million” on Friday and Saturday, March 30-31. On Thursday, the IDF further ramped up the force piling up on the Gaza border with additional ground troops and artillery units. 
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the Egyptian intelligence officers shuttling between Tel Aviv and Gaza City for days failed to broker an agreement for an Israeli-Hamas truce. Neither party was willing to make commitments as to its response should the “March of the Million” rage out of control. Hamas adamantly refused to guarantee that the mass demonstration would be peaceful, or to rein in attacks on Israeli troops like those which have plagued southern Israel in the past year. Neither would the Palestinian terrorist group ruling the Gaza Strip agree to halt its incendiary balloon assaults on Israeli civilian locations or even rocket fire. Israel’s answer was to refuse to make any promises about how the IDF would respond if Hamas’ and allied groups’ violent conduct continued.



Hamas says no ceasefire deal until after massive weekend protests
Hamas officials said Thursday that their group will only agree to an Egypt-mediated ceasefire with Israel after massive protests planned on the Gaza Strip border with Israel this weekend to mark a year since weekly disturbances started.
The reported condition came as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had instructed the army to be ready for an “extensive campaign” in the Gaza Strip and Egyptian mediators headed to Israel to discuss a potential ceasefire plan to end the recent flareup in hostilities.
Three Hamas officials familiar with the negotiations said that the Egyptians had offered Hamas a series of measures to ease the blockade on Gaza. In exchange, Hamas would have to pledge to halt rocket fire and keep protests along the Israeli border under control.
The officials said the deal would only take effect after the planned mass demonstration along the Israeli border. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations were ongoing. One of the officials described the atmosphere as positive.
Another official said the Egyptians were discussing the proposal with Israel on Thursday afternoon.
There was no immediate Israeli comment.
The protests have at times seen the participation of tens of thousands of Palestinians.
Hamas, an Islamist terror group that seeks to destroy Israel, has been the de facto ruler of Gaza since seizing control of the territory from the Palestinian Authority in 2007.
Netanyahu on Thursday vowed not to hold back from a military invasion of Gaza if such action was needed to restore quiet.
“We’re tightening the security ring around the Gaza Strip,” Netanyahu said at an event in northern Israel. Earlier in the day, the prime minister visited troops on the Gaza border, where the IDF has been amassing units amid intense fighting earlier this week.
“I recently ordered that the units be reinforced, that tools be added, in preparation for an extensive campaign,” he added.
“All citizens of Israel know that if an extensive campaign is necessary – we will go into it strong and secure, after all other possibilities have been exhausted,” continued Netanyahu, who is also defense minister.
The comments came with the army gearing up for large riots along the security fence this weekend, as Palestinians mark one year since the start of the “March of Return” protests.
This week saw a spike in tensions after a rocket fired from Gaza hit a house in the agricultural community of Mishmeret in central Israel and destroyed it completely, wounding seven people. Israel responded with airstrikes on scores of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, and Palestinian terror groups launched dozens of rockets at Israeli communities in the Gaza periphery.
Throughout the recent violence, Egyptian military intelligence officials have been working to broker a ceasefire. A delegation of Egyptian mediators and intelligence officialsreportedly met Wednesday night and early Thursday morning with the Hamas leadership in the Gaza Strip, conveying an Israeli truce offer.
Israel has demanded that Gaza’s terror groups stop nighttime border riots, halt weekly demonstrations as well as riots at the Zikim beach in northern Gaza, and provide assurances that this weekend’s massive protest will be nonviolent, Ynet reported.
In return, according to the report, Jerusalem offered to increase the number of trucks loaded with goods entering Gaza every day through the Kerem Shalom border crossing, ease approvals for imports and exports; support UN employment initiatives in the Strip, expand the permitted fishing zone to 12 nautical miles off the Strip’s coast, and improve electric power supply from Israel.


Slamming Golan recognition, Hezbollah chief predicts West Bank is next
The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist group on Tuesday condemned US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, saying an American shift on the its stance regarding the West Bank could follow.
“After a period of time, we must expect that Trump will come out and say he recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank,” Hassan Nasrallah said in comments broadcast on Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar TV.
Trump formally recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights on Monday in a ceremony at the White House attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after announcing the policy shift last week.
Israel captured the strategic plateau in the 1967 Six Day War and in 1981 applied Israeli law to the territory, a step tantamount to annexation. The move was never recognized by the international community, which considers the area to be occupied.
On Tuesday, a senior Israeli official indicated Trump’s move could open the door to Israel laying claim to other lands it captured in defensive wars, possibly referring to the West Bank, which was captured from Jordan in the same war. The New York Times identified the official as Netanyahu
In his comments, Nasrallah said Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017 paved the way for his decision on the Golan Heights.
“When the world allowed Trump to usurp Jerusalem and declare it as Israel’s eternal capital, it opened the door to every violation by the Americans and Trump,” Nasrallah, whose Iran-backed group is closely allied with Syria, was quoted saying by the Naharnet news site.
The Golan recognition was a sign of “disrespect” to the Arab world, he added, calling the move a “pivotal event” in the decades-long Arab-Israeli conflict.
Nasrallah’s speech Tuesday marked his first public comments on Trump’s recognition of the Golan Heights, which has been condemned by Lebanon, Iran and Russia, as well as a number of other Arab and Muslims countries.
Nasrallah said the territory will only be returned to Syria by force, in a call for armed struggle.
“Those who are still hesitant must become convinced that resistance is the only choice for the Syrians to recover the Golan, for the Lebanese to recover the Shebaa Farms and the Kfar Chouba Hills, and for the Palestinians to get their rights,” he said.
The Shebaa Farms — known in Hebrew as Mount Dov — is a small patch of land captured by Israel from Syria in 1967. Lebanon maintains that the strip of land is a part of Lebanon, despite it having been under Syrian control from the 1950s until it was captured as part of the Golan Heights.
Kfar Chouba is a nearby village and Hezbollah claims Israel is occupying the surrounding area.



Hamas and Israel risk another Gaza war in deadly game of chicken
In the lead-up to this Saturday, when tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to take part in protests along the Gaza border to commemorate both Land Day and the first anniversary of the “Great March of Return,” Hamas and Israel appear to be playing a high-stakes game of chicken, with each side — in both word and deed — threatening all-out war against the other.
As an Egyptian military intelligence delegation shuttles back and forth between Tel Aviv and Gaza to broker a ceasefire agreement between the two sides, Hamas is attempting to extract the greatest possible concessions from Israel using the specter of a punishing assault on the Israeli home front just before a national election — one that it knows would also cost Gaza dearly.
Though the main stated goal of the past year’s protests — the right for Gazan refugees and their descendants to return to their ancestral villages in Israel and the West Bank — is almost surely a nonstarter with Jerusalem, Hamas is hoping for Israel and Egypt to lift their blockade of the Strip, which the two countries maintain is necessary to prevent terror groups from importing weapons into the coastal enclave.
Israel, in turn, is looking to restore calm to the communities surrounding the Gaza Strip — meaning an end not only to rocket fire but to all violence along the border, including the riots along the security fence and the airborne incendiary and explosive devices — while also denying its enemy, Hamas, a victory, but says it is prepared for war if these talks fail.
“I recently ordered that units be reinforced and that additional [armored] vehicles be dispatched in preparation for an extensive campaign. All citizens of Israel know that if an extensive campaign is necessary, we will go into it strong and secure, after all other possibilities have been exhausted,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement Thursday.
Also on Thursday, Hamas officials said their group would only agree to an Egypt-mediated ceasefire with Israel after the protests for Land Day, the annual commemoration of the expropriation of Arab-owned land by the Israeli government in the northern region of Galilee in 1976.
The group is trying to paint Israel’s stubbornness and threats of force as the result of the ruling Likud’s election campaign, a fairly dubious assertion as another bout in Gaza — what would be Netanyahu’s third in under seven years — is as liable to negatively effect the prime minister’s re-election chances as help them.
The Islamist terror group is desperate for a victory in order to justify its reign over the beleaguered coastal enclave. Over 11 years into Hamas’s rule, the majority of young people in the Strip are unemployed, electricity is available for just a few hours per day and potable water is scarce.
Hamas’s latest gambit in its fight against the Jewish state, the March of Return protests, which began March 30, 2018, has resulted in nearly 200 people — both civilians and combatants — killed by Israeli gunfire, according to a recent UN report, but has yielded few to no significant achievements for the terror group.



A Glimpse of the Future
Any simpleton can recognize an unfolding calamity
The two trains about to collide, the twister racing for the schoolhouse, the betrayed lover with a finger on the trigger.
But you require a wider vision to perceive the chains of disaster coming together… link by fateful link…
When a conductor gets his signals crossed, when the winds take a fatal shift, when someone takes the first bite of forbidden fruit.
Today we attempt a wider view of future calamity presently taking shape.
But first to a future calamity in its own right — the stock market.
Once again, the global economy throws a darkened shadow over Wall Street.
We learn today that Chinese industrial profits have fallen 14% year over year — their largest fall since 2011.
Meantime, European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi has drawn a dark sketch of the eurozone.
Mr. Draghi cited “weakness in world trade” and a “weakening growth picture.”
The ECB recently downgraded its 2019 eurozone GDP forecast from 1.7% to 1.1%.
The Dow Jones gave back 32 points on the day. The S&P lost 13, the Nasdaq 48.
By way of explanation Ed Yardeni, president and chief investment strategist at Yardeni Research:
There’s lots of angst about global economic growth. That’s understandable because it has been slowing significantly since early 2018. Furthermore, we can all observe that ultra-easy monetary and debt-financed fiscal policies aren’t as stimulative as policymakers have been hoping.
What do we spot?
Unsurprisingly, a scene of coming recession…
The present expansion is the second longest in United States history.
If the economy can peg along until July, it will be crowned the longest expansion in United States history.
But the signs of age are creeping in, like rust on a chassis
Growth has been trending wrong two consecutive quarters — and going on three.
Even the eternally optimistic Atlanta wing of the Federal Reserve projects first-quarter GDP to expand at 1.5%.
JPMorgan Chase seers project the same 1.5% — but even that is subject to “downside risk.”
The reasons are close at hand…
Housing prices are the softest in four years, manufacturing plumbs 21-month lows, retail stores are closing at alarming rates (5,279 year to date), the American consumer languishes under record levels of debt.
And the yield curve has inverted — a recession indicator of supreme accuracy.
Looking out beyond these pristine shores, we also find the global economy wobbling on its axis.
As suggested above, China and Europe all go on unsteady legs. Japan is similarly afflicted.
Meantime, the Federal Reserve has just executed perhaps its most dramatic retreat in its history.
It has essentially guaranteed no rate hikes on the year. As recently as December it had penciled in two.
But the “real” interest rate — the nominal rate minus the inflation rate — is even lower than face value suggests.
Thus we find the real fed funds rate not 2.50%, but as low as 0.25%.
By way of comparison…
The real fed funds rate scaled 2.75% when the Federal Reserve’s last tightening cycle concluded in 2006.
And 4% when the previous cycle ended in 2000.
But sticking to the nominal rate, history argues convincingly that rates between 4% and 5% are required to beat back recession.
Only with that much “dry powder” can the Federal Reserve cut enough to lift the economy from its wallows.
But when recession does besiege us — this year, next year or the year following — the Federal Reserve will scarcely be at half-strength.
Imagine a one-armed gladiator battling in the arena… or a flyweight taking on the heavyweight champion of the world.
And so the Federal Reserve is in an awful bind
It must raise rates to build its steam against the next recession. But it cannot raise rates above present levels without bringing the Furies crashing down upon it.
A conundrum to ponder of a blue day.




Hal Lindsey –
Last week, the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution criticizing what it calls Israel’s “occupation” of the Golan Heights.
Perhaps not coincidentally, that typical condemnation of Israel by the UN was overshadowed by a tweet from US President Donald Trump. He wrote, “After 52 years, it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability.”
Thank God for a President with the courage to stand up to the world’s elite and the determination to protect and defend Israel. I believe God will honor His covenant with Abraham and bless America for blessing and defending the Jews.
Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria, one of its attackers in the 1967 Six-Day War.
Some critics say that Mr. Trump’s opportune recognition of Israel’s right to the Golan Heights was a political ploy. I think, though, that it simply acknowledges reality.
From a military standpoint, Israel cannot afford to allow an enemy to own the high ground to its immediate north. Especially an enemy completely controlled by Iran and Hezbollah (and Russia and Turkey in the deeper background). Further, Syria’s dictator, Bashar al-Assad is a recognized butcher who has repeatedly used poison gas on his own people, including children.
To return a strategically vital defensive asset like the Golan Heights to Syria at this time would be an insane act of self-destruction for Israel. But it is a suicidal act that the EU and the UN (not to mention all of Islam and many on the Left in Israel) are pushing Israel to commit.
Once again, I thank God that our President is bravely standing firm with Israel in the face of worldwide opposition.
Harvard Professor-Emeritus Alan Dershowitz explained the situation perfectly. He said, “You don’t give back a battleship that you captured from an enemy who is going to use it to fire at you. The Golan Heights is a battleship and you don’t give it to Syria and Iran.”
Especially after half a century!
You just thought that “Meatless Mondays” was another incoherent screwball idea by the insufferably self-aware Left’s social justice warriors. It was recently announced that the New York City public school system is adopting the idea in all of its cafeterias next year.
But what if the whole idea has some prophetic significance?
In 1 Timothy 4:1,3, Paul writes,
“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith…. men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.” (NASB)
The King James Version specifically says, “…commanding to abstain from meats….”
I doubt that pursuing a vegan lifestyle one day per week will significantly hurt growing children, although the idea is hotly contested among dieticians and nutritionists in the world’s medical community. But it is increasingly becoming politically incorrect to eat meat or dairy products. And isn’t that exactly what the Bible predicted for “the later times”?
We already know that, more and more, cultural trendsetters are opposing the institution of marriage. They call it “sexist.”
These are just two of the hundreds of prophetic signs being fulfilled daily in our time. And the amazing thing is, they’re all happening at once. Remember, the Bible predicts that all of these signs will grow in frequency and intensity as the end of this age approaches.
There was a time when people could depend on their “life savings” for a sense of security. Not anymore.
The world’s economy is surprisingly fragile at the moment. There are even signs that the US economy might be headed for some instability or, at the least, sluggish growth.
These problems may turn out to be insignificant, temporary setbacks. But there is one warning sign that no one can dismiss: national debt.
Unsustainable levels of national debt hang like the sword of Damocles over the United States and the world.
In 1992, the US debt stood at 62% of our nation’s annual Gross Domestic Product, or GDP.
In 2009, our national debt reached 82% of our GDP.
This year, it will be at least 106% of GDP.
That’s an explosion of debt!
Remember, when I say “GDP,” I’m not talking about the amount of money the government brings in through taxes and tariffs. I’m talking about all of the wealth generated by the ENTIRE nation in a year. Government debt now exceeds the annual amount of everything the nation produces!
In 1981, the US debt hit one trillion dollars. President Ronald Reagan tried to illustrate to Congress how much a trillion dollars is.
He said, “…if you had a stack of thousand-dollar bills in your hand only 4 inches high, you’d be a millionaire. A trillion dollars would be a stack of thousand-dollar bills 67 miles high.”
Last month, US debt hit 22 trillion dollars. That’s a stack of thousand-dollar bills 1,474 miles high!
But official Washington doesn’t seem to care. Now they want to give Medicare to everyone and pay all college tuitions. They want to ban fossil fuels, build millions of massive windmills, and rebuild every building in America. Including your house.
The American Action Forum estimates that will require more than 90 trillion dollars! That’s how you turn the most prosperous nation in human history into another Venezuela!
But it’s not just happening in America. In 2017, 19 nations had government debt higher than their GDP. Japan’s national debt stands at a staggering 236% of its GDP!
History proves these numbers cannot be sustained. The world is headed for a financial disaster like nothing ever seen before.
And it will set the stage for the emergence of the Antichrist.
If your hope is only in this world, your future is scary!
Speaking of hope, the first prophecy of a Savior for the world comes right after the first mention of sin in the Bible. In Genesis 3:15, God said that the future Seed of woman would bruise the head of Satan.
Nothing more was written about the Promised Seed until around the year 2000 BC. At that point, God spoke to a man named Abram who would later become known as Abraham.
God told Abraham to leave his home and travel to a far-off land. God made a covenant with Abraham. He told him that great blessings await him and his descendants in that unknown land.
In an amazing act of faith, Abraham obeyed.
And from that one act of faith flowed the blessings that have enriched all of the peoples of the world and history, most notably the birth of the “Anointed One,” ha-mashi’ah, Messiah.
On this week’s program, I am going to tell you the story of “The Amazing Mr. Abraham.”
