1John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath NOT the Son of God hath NOT life.

1John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

2Pet. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of


1Tim. 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords

Rev. 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he IS Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful

Rev. 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS




QUESTION:   Would you be able to explain what “because of the angels” means in 1 Corinthians 11 v. 10?

ANSWER:   The context of 1 Corinthians 11 is propriety in worship. In verse 10 Paul was reminding us that unseen angels often worship with us and for their sake we should maintain proper order and decorum in our worship services.

It always amazes me how few Christians realize that worship is one of the times when heaven and earth join together in singing our praises to God.

Once our tour group was visiting St. Anne’s church in Jerusalem. It was noon and we were suddenly all alone there. We decided to spend a few minutes in worship and one of the members recorded us on a pocket recorder.

Back in the states we were amazed when we listened to the recording. There were many more voices than there were members, and we had never sounded like that before. The angels there had worshiped with us.

1 Cor. 11:10 is one of the references the Bible makes to angels being among us. Another is in Hebrews 13:2 where we’re told to be kind and helpful to strangers for by doing so some of us have entertained angels without knowing it.

You might ask why there are angels in the world, hidden among the people. Hebrews 1:14 tells us angels are ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation. God has stationed them here, ready to respond to believers in need.



QUESTION:   I have heard it preached that there will come a time when the earth will be restored to its original state (before the fall) and all animals will be at peace with one another. I love to watch wildlife programs but I do wish they wouldn’t kill each other! What is your teaching on this please?

ANSWER:   According to Isaiah there will be peace among the animals and between animals and mankind.

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox (Isaiah 11:6-7).

This will be the case during Israel’s Kingdom Age on Earth, also known as the Millennium, when the Lord returns to reign over the earth (Acts 3:21).

1Th. 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape










































WEBPAGE ADMINISTRATOR:   If anyone out there has not understood that we are in the “LAST” moments of the “LAST” days prior to God’s Judgment on this World, they need to look no further that what the United Nations General Assembly has just concluded.

Israel has it’s 70th Anniversary due on the 14th May 2918, just over 6 weeks away from now,

We have to understand that Israel is God’s “Chosen People” for a reason, Israel/Jerusalem is God’s “TIMEPIECE” for the World, God will not let anything happen regarding his plan for Israel, and to divide Israel in a (Two State Solution) will be a “TOTAL CATASTROPHE” for the World.

We are on track for the Rapture, which is “IMMINENT”, and believe me now one will want to be here on Earth for the coming “TRIBULATION”. It is God’s Judgment for Israel, and Mankind in General, it is not the Judgment of Jesus Christ “CHURCH”. Study Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 22:21 for the near future of this Earth concerning God’s Wrath on Mankind.

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3 (KJV)


John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him

Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness

Rom. 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God

Rev. 15:1 ¶ And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God

Rev. 19:15 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


The United Nations approved five anti-Israel resolutions, including one called “Ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including east Jerusalem.” US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the council’s continued anti-Israel bias, stating that the US would continue to consider its options regarding membership of the Geneva-based body.

The United Nations Human Rights Council called on the international community to halt arms sales to Israel as it wrapped up its month-long 37th session in Geneva.

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Would you be shocked to learn that the Bible not only talks about the global organization known as the United Nations, it also tells you what the end of that group will be. Never before in human history has there been a single entity that represented the combined weight of all the nations of the world, the UN is quite unique in that regard. The prophet Zephaniah, quoted below, tells us that the nations have been gathered together for a single purpose. That purpose is to create the army of Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble that will come against Israel for the Battle of Armageddon, where they will meet the King of Kings and His Army of His saints. In the meantime, the UN continues to spew hatred towards the Jews and Israel as you will see in the story below. 

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJV)

It approved five anti-Israel resolutions, including one called “Ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including east Jerusalem.”

By a 27 to 4 vote, with 15 abstentions, the UNHRC called upon “all states to promote compliance under international law” with regard to Israeli actions.

It asked the states to do so “by ensuring that their public authorities and private entities do not become involved in internationally unlawful conduct, inter alia the provision of arms to end users known or likely to use the arms in the commission of serious violations of international humanitarian and/or human rights law.”

Support for a resolution that called on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights was similarly low. It passed by 25 votes to 7 and 14 abstentions.

A resolution on Palestinian self-determination calling for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines as well as one that called on Israel to halt settlement activity and another that condemned it for human rights abuses against the Palestinians were also approved.

Australia, which only joined the council as a member this year, stood with the US in opposing all the resolutions. Both countries, as well as the United Kingdom, all spoke against UNHRC bias against Israel.

Who’s Occupying Who? Let’s Look At God’s Original Land Grant Of Israel To Abraham

The tiny, little fraction of Israel proper that the Jews have at the current moment pales in comparison with how much God says they really have. They day is coming when they will finally receive the full amount. This will take place during the Millennial Reign of Jesus the Messiah that happens right after the Battle of Armageddon.

Who’s Occupying Who? Let’s Look At God’s Original Land …

Let‘s Look At God’s Original Land Grant Of Israel To Abraham, and see how much land they really have.



The three states called for the abolition of the UNHRC mandate that Israeli human rights abuses must be debated at every session under Agenda Item 7. They asked instead that issues regarding Israel be debated under Agenda Item 4, which is set aside for the UNHRC to examine human rights abuses in all UN member states.

Palestinian Authority Ambassador to the UN in Geneva Ibrahim Khraishi warned that if calls to abolish Agenda Item 7 continued, the PA would begin to submit resolutions against Israel under Agenda Item 4 in addition to those that would be debated under Agenda Item 7.

He added that the best way to abolish Agenda Item 7 was an Israeli withdrawal to pre-1967 lines and the end to the “occupation.”

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the council’s continued anti-Israel bias, stating that the US would continue to consider its options regarding membership of the Geneva-based body.

“When the Human Rights Council treats Israel worse than North Korea, Iran, and Syria, it is the Council itself that is foolish and unworthy of its name. It is time for the countries who know better to demand changes. Many countries agree that the Council’s agenda is grossly biased against Israel, but too few are willing to fight it,” said Haley.

“When that happens, as it did today, the Council fails to fulfill its duty to uphold human rights around the world. The United States continues to evaluate our membership in the Human Rights Council. Our patience is not unlimited. Today’s actions make clear that the organization lacks the credibility needed to be a true advocate for human rights,” she added.

The UK said it opposed Agenda Item 7 and charged the UNHRC with bias against Israel. It voted against the resolutions on the Golan Heights and the one on accountability. The UK voted in favor of the resolutions on human rights and Palestinian self-determination. It abstained on the resolution on settlements due to its opposition to the UNHRC’s work to create a blacklist of companies doing business with Israeli settlements.

“Our vote against the accountability resolution is not a vote against the importance of accountability and justice in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. It is a vote against the Council’s disproportionate focus on Israel,” the UK representative said.

“However, we must not lose sight of the deeply concerning situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” the representative added.

“We continue to be alarmed by the treatment of Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention. We have also seen horrific terrorist violence against Israelis, which must be condemned in the strongest terms. All of this gravely undermines the viability of a two-state solution,” the UK representative said.

“Therefore, today, the UK is voting in support of the self-determination and human rights resolutions. But the credibility and impact of these resolutions is repeatedly undermined by their being tabled under Item 7. This cannot continue,” the UK representative concluded. source



“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” Genesis 15:18-21 (KJV)

The tiny, little fraction of Israel proper that the Jews have at the current moment pales in comparison with how much God says they really have.

“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” Genesis 13:15 (KJV)

In our day, much is made of the current conflict between Israel and the mythical Palestinians and the seemingly endless battle over who is entitled to how much of the land. People talk about the ownership of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the ever-popular canard called the Two State Solution. But all of these are straw men that obscure the real issue. Not only does all the land of Israel belong to the Jewish people, but way more than the current allotment belongs to them as well.

Jew haters and anti-semites, get ready to have your mind blown

“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” Genesis 15:18-21 (KJV)

For those of you who are not geographical scholars, here is the original land grant God gave to Abraham in bullet points:

  • The upper-right portion of Egypt
  • All of modern-day Israel
  • All of Lebanon
  • All of of Syria
  • A piece of Turkey
  • Half of Iraq
  • The northern half of Jordan
  • A little slice of Saudi Arabia



Shall we pause while we let that thought sink in for a moment or two? Because that’s how much land rightfully belongs to the Jewish people. If you think of it like a triangle, you go approximately 1,000 miles across the bottom, going from left in Egypt all the way right to Kuwait, up 500 miles to the top in Turkey on the one side, and 500 miles down to the bottom on the other side. You end up where you started in Egypt. That is one massive land grant.

The tiny, little fraction of Israel proper that the Jews have at the current moment pales in comparison with how much God says they really have. They day is coming when they will finally receive the full amount. This will take place during the Millennial Reign of Jesus the Messiah that happens right after the Battle of Armageddon.

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4 (KJV)

And speaking of the Battle of Armageddon, the prophet Joel says that one of the main things that sets God off is when the Antichrist and his minions set about to “part the land” which God says belongs to Him.

“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJV)

So when you hear people talking about the Two State Solution, and how they are going to divide Israel and give it to the Palestinians, they are playing with Holy Fire and that fire is getting ready to fall.

How much of Israel belongs to the Jews? All of it, and then some. God’s land grant to Abraham is in perpetuity, and will not only last through the Millennial Reign, it will last throughout all eternity as well.

Am Yisrael Chai.



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Land of Israel (Hebrew: אֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל, Modern Eretz Yisrael, Tiberian ʼÉreṣ Yiśrāʼēl) is the traditional Jewish name for an area of indefinite geographical extension in the Southern Levant. Related biblical, religious and historical English terms include the Land of Canaan, the Promised Land, the Holy Land, and Palestine (see also Israel (disambiguation)). The definitions of the limits of this territory vary between passages in the Hebrew Bible, with specific mentions in Genesis 15, Exodus 23, Numbers 34 and Ezekiel 47. Nine times elsewhere in the Bible, the settled land is referred as “from Dan to Beersheba, and three times it is referred as “from the entrance of Hamath unto the brook of Egypt” (1 Kings 8:65, 1 Chronicles 13:5 and 2 Chronicles 7:8).

These biblical limits for the land differ from the borders of established historical Israelite and later Jewish kingdoms; over time these have included the United Kingdom of Israel, the two separated kingdoms of Israel (Samaria) and Judah, the Hasmonean Kingdom, and the Herodian Kingdom, which at their heights ruled lands with similar but not identical boundaries.

The Jewish religious belief defining the land as where Jewish religious law prevailed and excluding territory where it was not applied,[1] holds that the area is a God-given inheritance of the Jewish people based on the Torah, particularly the books of Genesis and Exodus, as well as on the later Prophets.[2] According to the Book of Genesis, the land was first promised by God to the descendants of Abram; the text is explicit that this is a covenant between God and Abram for his descendants.[3] Abram’s name was later changed to Abraham, with the promise refined to pass through his son Isaac and to the Israelites, descendants of Jacob, Abraham’s grandson. This belief is not shared by most adherents of replacement theology (or supersessionism), who hold the view that the Old Testament prophecies were superseded by the coming of Jesus,[4] a view often repudiated by Christian Zionists as a theological error.[5] Evangelical Zionists variously claim that Israel has title to the land by divine right,[6] or by a theological, historical and moral grounding of attachment to the land unique to Jews (James Parkes),[7] The idea that ancient religious texts can be warrant or divine right for a modern claim has often been challenged,[8][9] and Israeli courts have rejected land claims based on religious motivations.[10]

During the mandatory period (1920-1948) the term “Eretz Yisrael” or the “Land of Israel” was part of the official Hebrew name of Mandatory Palestine. Official Hebrew documents used the Hebrew transliteration of the word “Palestine” פלשתינה (Palestina) followed always by the two initial letters of “Eretz Yisrael”, א״י Aleph-Yod.[11][12]

The Land of Israel concept has been evoked by the founders of the State of Israel. It often surfaces in political debates on the status of the West Bank, which is referred to in official Israeli discourse as Judea and Samaria, from the names of the two historical Jewish kingdoms.[13]








Israel’s Right to the Land

A skillful presentation by U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) on the Senate floor, March 4, 2002.

I was interested the other day when I heard that the de facto Saudi ruler, Crown Prince Abdullah, made a statement which was received by many in this country as if it were a statement of fact, as if it were something new, a concept for peace in the Middle East that no one had ever heard of before. I was kind of shocked that it was so well received by many people who had been down this road before.

I suggest to you that what Crown Prince Abdullah talked about a few days ago was not new at all. He talked about the fact that under the Abdullah plan, Arabs would normalize relations with Israel in exchange for the Jewish state surrendering the territory it received after the Six Day War, as if that were something new…

[But] there isn’t anything new about the prospect of giving up land that is rightfully Israel’s land in order to have peace. When it gets right down to it, the land doesn’t make that much difference, because Yasser Arafat and others don’t recognize Israel’s right to any of the land. They do not recognize Israel’s right to exist.

Yasser Arafat and others don’t recognize Israel’s right to any of the land. They do not recognize Israel’s right to exist.

I will discuss seven reasons why Israel is entitled to the land they have and that it should not be a part of the peace process. If this is something that Israel wants to do, it is their business to do it. But anyone who has tried to put the pressure on Israel to do this is wrong.

We are going to be hit by skeptics who are going to say we will be attacked because of our support for Israel, and if we get out of the Middle East—that is us—all the problems will go away. That is just not true. If we withdraw, all of these problems will again come to our door. I have some observations to make about that.

But I would like to reemphasize once again the seven reasons that Israel has the right to their land.


The first reason is that Israel has the right to the land because of all of the archeological evidence. All the archeological evidence supports it. Every time there is a dig in Israel, it does nothing but support the fact that Israelis have had a presence there for 3,000 years. The coins, the cities, the pottery, the culture—there are other people, groups that are there, but there is no mistaking the fact that Israelis have been present in that land for 3,000 years. It predates any claims that other peoples in the region may have.

The ancient Philistines are extinct. Many other ancient peoples are extinct. They do not have the unbroken line to this date that the Israelis have. Even the Egyptians of today are not racial Egyptians of 2,000, 3,000 years ago. They are primarily an Arab people. The land is called Egypt, but they are not the same racial and ethnic stock as the old Egyptians of the ancient world.

The Israelis are in fact descended from the original Israelites.

2)      HISTORY

The second proof of Israel’s right to the land is the historic right. History supports it totally and completely. We know there has been an Israel up until the time of the Roman Empire. The Romans conquered the land. Israel had no homeland, although Jews were allowed to live there. They were driven from the land in two dispersions: One in 70 A.D. and the other in 135 A.D. But there was always a Jewish presence in the land.

The Turks, who took over about 700 years ago and ruled the land up until about World War One, had control. Then the land was conquered by the British. The Turks entered World War One on the side of Germany. The British knew they had to do something to punish Turkey, and also to break up that empire that was going to be a part of the whole effort of Germany in World War One. So the British sent troops against the Turks in the Holy Land.

One of the generals who was leading the British armies was a man named Allenby. Allenby was a Bible-believing Christian. He carried a Bible with him everywhere he went and he knew the significance of Jerusalem. The night before the attack against Jerusalem to drive out the Turks, Allenby prayed that God would allow him to capture the city without doing damage to the holy places.

That day, Allenby sent World War One biplanes over the city of Jerusalem to do a reconnaissance mission. You have to understand that the Turks had at that time never seen an airplane. So there they were, flying around. They looked in the sky and saw these fascinating inventions and did not know what they were, and they were terrified by them.

They dared not fight against a prophet from God, so Allenby captured Jerusalem without firing a single shot.

Then they were told they were going to be opposed by a man named Allenby the next day, which means, in their language, “man sent from God” or “prophet from God.” They dared not fight against a prophet from God, so the next morning, when Allenby went to take Jerusalem, he went in and captured it without firing a single shot.

The British government was grateful to Jewish people around the world, particularly to one Jewish chemist who helped them manufacture niter. Niter is an ingredient that was used in nitroglycerin which was sent over from the New World. But they did not have a way of getting it to England. The German U-boats were shooting on the boats, so most of the niter they were trying to import to make nitroglycerin was at the bottom of the ocean. But a man named Weitzman, a Jewish chemist, discovered a way to make it from materials that existed in England. As a result, they were able to continue that supply.

The British at that time said they were going to give the Jewish people a homeland. That is all written down in history. They were gratified that the Jewish people, the bankers, came through and helped finance the war.

The homeland that Britain said it would set aside consisted of all of what is now Israel and all of what was then the nation of Jordan—the whole thing. That was what Britain promised to give the Jews in 1917. In the beginning, there was some Arab support for this action. There was not a huge Arab population in the land at that time, and there is a reason for that. The land was not able to sustain a large population of people. It just did not have the development it needed to handle those people, and nobody really wanted this land. It was considered to be worthless land.

Mark Twain—Samuel Clemens—took a tour of Palestine in 1867. This is how he described that land. We are talking about Israel now. He said: “A desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given over wholly to weeds. A silent, mournful expanse. We never saw a human being on the whole route. There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.”

Where was this great Palestinian nation? It did not exist. It was not there. Palestinians were not there. Palestine was a region named by the Romans, but at that time it was under the control of Turkey, and there was no large mass of people there because the land would not support them.

This is the report that the Palestinian Royal Commission, created by the British, made. It quotes an account of the conditions on the coastal plain along the Mediterranean Sea in 1913. The Palestinian Royal Commission said:

“The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track, suitable for transport by camels or carts. No orange groves, orchards or vineyards were to be seen until one reached the Yavnev village. Houses were mud. Schools did not exist. The western part toward the sea was almost a desert. The villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many villages were deserted by their inhabitants.”

That was 1913.

The French author Voltaire described Palestine as “a hopeless, dreary place.” In short, under the Turks the land suffered from neglect and low population. That is a historic fact. The nation became populated by both Jews and Arabs because the land came to prosper when Jews came back and began to reclaim it. If there had never been any archaeological evidence to support the rights of the Israelis to the territory, it is also important to recognize that other nations in the area have no longstanding claim to the country either.

Did you know that Saudi Arabia was not created until 1913, Lebanon until 1920? Iraq did not exist as a nation until 1932, Syria until 1941. The borders of Jordan were established in 1946 and Kuwait in 1961. Any of these nations that would say Israel is only a recent arrival would have to deny their own rights as recent arrivals as well. They did not exist as countries. They were all under the control of the Turks.

Historically, Israel gained its independence in 1948.


The third reason that land belongs to Israel is the practical value of the Israelis being there. Israel today is a modern marvel of agriculture. Israel is able to bring more food out of a desert environment than any other country in the world. The Arab nations ought to make Israel their friend and import technology from Israel that would allow all the Middle East, not just Israel, to become an exporter of food. Israel has unarguable success in its agriculture.


The fourth reason I believe Israel has the right to the land is on the grounds of humanitarian concern. You see, there were 6 million Jews slaughtered in Europe during World War Two. The persecution against the Jews had been very strong in Russia since the advent of communism, and before then under the Czars.

These people have a right to their homeland. If we are not going to allow them a homeland in the Middle East, then where? What other nation on Earth is going to cede territory, is going to give up land?

They are not asking for a great deal. The whole nation of Israel would fit into my home state of Oklahoma seven times. They are not asking for a great deal. The whole nation of Israel is very small. It is a nation that, up until the time that claims started coming in, was not desired by anybody.


The fifth reason Israel ought to have their land is that she is a strategic ally of the United States. Whether we realize it or not, Israel is an impediment to certain groups hostile to democracies and hostile to what we believe in, hostile to that which makes us the greatest nation in the history of the world. They have kept them from taking complete control of the Middle East. If it were not for Israel, they would overrun the region.

Israel votes with America in the United Nations more than England, Canada, France, Germany—more than any other country in the world.

They are our strategic ally. It is good to know we have a friend in the Middle East on whom we can count. They vote with us in the United Nations more than England, more than Canada, more than France, more than Germany—more than any other country in the world.


The sixth reason is that Israel is a roadblock to terrorism. The war we are now facing is not against a sovereign nation; it is against a group of terrorists who are very fluid, moving from one country to another. They are almost invisible. That is whom we are fighting against today. We need every ally we can get. If we do not stop terrorism in the Middle East, it will be on our shores.

One of the reasons I believe the spiritual door was opened for an attack against the United States is that the policy of our government has been to ask the Israelis, and demand it with pressure, not to retaliate in a significant way against the terrorist strikes that have been launched against them.

Since its independence in 1948, Israel has fought four wars: The 1948 War of Independence, the 1956 Sinai campaign, the 1967 Six Day War, and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. In all four cases, Israel was attacked. They were not the aggressor. Some people may argue that this was not true because they went in first in 1956, but they knew at that time that Egypt was building a huge military to become the aggressor. Israel, in fact, was not the aggressor and has not been the aggressor in any of the four wars.

Also, they won all four wars against impossible odds. They are great warriors. They consider a level playing field being outnumbered 2-to-1.

There were 39 Scud missiles that landed on Israeli soil during the Gulf War. Our president asked Israel not to respond. In order to have the Arab nations on board, we asked Israel not to participate in the war. They showed tremendous restraint and did not. Now we have asked them to stand back and not do anything over these last several attacks. We have criticized them. We have criticized them in our media. Local people in television and radio often criticize Israel, not knowing the true facts. We need to be informed.

I was so thrilled when I heard a reporter pose a question to Secretary of State Colin Powell. He said: “Mr. Powell, the United States has advocated a policy of restraint in the Middle East. We have discouraged Israel from retaliation again and again and again because we’ve said that it escalates the violence. Are we going to follow that ourselves?”

Mr. Powell indicated we would strike back. In other words, we can tell Israel not to do it, but when it hits us, we are going to do something.

But all that changed in December when the Israelis went into Gaza with gunships and into the West Bank with F-16s. With the exception of last May, the Israelis had not used F-16s since the Six Day War. And I am so proud of them because we have to stop terrorism. It is not going to go away. If Israel were driven into the sea tomorrow, if every Jew in the Middle East were killed, terrorism would not end. You know that in your heart. Terrorism would continue. It is not just a matter of Israel in the Middle East. It is the heart of the very people who are perpetrating this stuff. Should they be successful in overrunning Israel—which they won’t be—but should they be, it would not be enough. They will never be satisfied.


I believe very strongly that we ought to support Israel, and that it has a right to the land, because God said so. In Genesis 13:14-17, the Bible says: “The Lord said to Abram, “Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, southward, eastward and westward: for all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed forever… Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it to thee.”

That is God talking. The Bible says that Abram removed his tent and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar before the Lord. Hebron is in the West Bank. It is at this place where God appeared to Abram and said, “I am giving you this land”—the West Bank. This is not a political battle at all. It is a contest over whether or not the word of God is true.


The seven reasons, I am convinced, clearly establish that Israel has a right to the land. Eight years ago on the White House lawn, Yitzhak Rabin shook hands with PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat. It was a historic occasion. It was a tragic occasion. At that time, the official policy of the government of Israel began to be, “Let us appease the terrorists. Let us begin to trade the land for peace.” This process continued unabated up until last year.

Here in our own nation, at Camp David in the summer of 2000, then-Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak offered the most generous concessions to Yasser Arafat that had ever been laid on the table. He offered him more than 90 percent of all the West Bank territory, sovereign control of it. There were some parts he did not want to offer, but in exchange he said he would give up land in Israel proper that the PLO had not even asked for.

Barak even spoke of dividing Jerusalem. Arafat stormed out of the meeting.

And he also did the unthinkable. He even spoke of dividing Jerusalem and allowing the Palestinians to have their capital there. Yasser Arafat stormed out of the meeting. Why did he storm out of the meeting? Everything he said he wanted was offered there. It was put into his hands. Why did he storm out of the meeting? A couple of months later, there began to be riots, terrorism. The riots began when now-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon went to the Temple Mount. And this was used as the thing that lit the fire and caused the explosion. Did you know that Sharon did not go unannounced and that he contacted the Islamic authorities before he went and secured their permission to be there? It was no surprise.

The response was very carefully calculated. They knew the world would not pay attention to the details. They would portray this in the Arab world as an attack upon the holy mosque and use it as an excuse to riot. Over the last eight years, during this time of the peace process, where the Israeli public has pressured its leaders to give up land for peace because they are tired of fighting, there has been increased terror.

In fact, it has been greater in the last eight years than any other time in Israel’s history. Showing restraint and giving in has not produced any kind of peace. It is so much so that today the leftist peace movement in Israel does not exist because the people feel they were deceived. They offered a hand of peace, and it was not taken. That is why the politics of Israel have changed drastically over the past 12 months. The Israelis have come to see that, “No matter what we do, these people do not want to deal with us… They want to destroy us.”

That is why even yet today the stationery of the PLO still has upon it the map of the entire state of Israel, not just the little part they call the West Bank. They want it all.

We have to get out of this mindset that somehow you can buy peace in the Middle East by giving little plots of land. It has not worked before when it has been offered.

These seven reasons show why Israel is entitled to that land.

I yield the floor.

Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

John 3:16 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.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 3:18 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





Matthew 16:1-3 “Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.”

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for not recognizing the signs of His first coming. The religious leaders of His day had full knowledge of the prophecies of the Messiah, yet these religious leaders ignored the signs and still rejected Him. Being a meteorologist, forecasting the weather and discerning the signs of the times go hand in hand for me. Unlike the religious leaders of the first century, I refuse to ignore the signs of the Lord’s return!

What are the signs of the Lord’s return? How do these signs show us that the Lord’s return is soon? Jesus refers to these signs as “birth pangs.” In the “Olivet Discourse” study, I discuss in detail what “birth pangs” are. Here are the “birth pangs” Jesus told us to watch for:

  • Wars and rumors of wars
  • World wars
  • Famines
  • Pestilences
  • Earthquakes in diverse places
  • Fearful sights and great signs in the heavens
  • False prophets
  • Persecution

The signs of the Lord’s return will be like “birth pangs,” in that they will be increasing in frequency and intensity before Jesus returns (Matthew 24:8). Therefore, we can use the “birth pangs” to gauge how close we are to the Lord’s return. The “birth pangs” occurring on a regional scale today, will become global in the Tribulation, as described in Revelation 6. When these “birth pangs” begin to have large-scale consequences, on the verge of becoming global, we know the Lord’s return is imminent:

Regional Birth Pangs Global Seal Judgments
Many false christs Matthew 24:4-5,11, Mark 13:5-6, Luke 21:8 1st Seal One ultimate false christ, the Antichrist Revelation 6:1-2
Wars and rumors of wars Matthew 24:6-7, Mark 13:7-8, Luke 21:9 2nd Seal Global war Revelation 6:3-4
Famine, pestilence and troubles in various places Matthew 24:7-8, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11 3rd & 4th Seal Global scarcity. 1/4th Earth subject to death Revelation 6:5-8
Persecution and martyr of some saints Matthew 24:9,13 & Mark 13:9-13 5th Seal Martyr of saints unrestrained Revelation 6:9-11
Earthquakes in various places Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11 6th Seal Wrath of the Lamb worldwide earthquake Revelation 6:12-17


The super sign that shows we are in the end times is that Israel is a nation again. The Jewish people are returning from exile. After nearly two millennia of rejection, God is going to call them His people again (Hosea 1:9, Romans 9:25-26), but first He must deal with their transgression of the Law (Daniel 9:24).

God is not going to wait for several generations to deal with Israel. God has brought His chosen people out of exile to deal with their transgression, in preparation for the Millennium. Many people, including myself, believe that the sign of the fig tree in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 show that God is going to fulfill all these signs within the life of the generation who witnessed the rebirth of Israel as a nation.

As we move closer to the Tribulation period, we should see an increase of the following signs:

Daniel 12:4 – Increase in knowledge and travel – This will support globalization.

Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11 – Famines and pestilences – Due to increase in natural disasters and war.

Revelation 11:9 – Satellite technology – People from all over the world will be able to view the two dead witnesses.

Revelation 13:16-17 – Computer technology – The mark of the beast will be a cashless society.

Revelation 13:16-17 – Global currency – All other currencies will crumble.

2 Timothy 3:1-8 – Rampant immorality and hedonism – Increase in selfishness and resistance to absolute truth.

A “perfect storm” is brewing. Since Israel has been back in the land, we have seen an explosion in technology and travel, now called the “Information Age.” Constantly, there are wars and rumors of wars. There has also been a drastic increase in the intensity in natural disasters. In just the last few years, these disasters have become a threat to the global food supply.

Immorality is certainly on the rise, with legalized abortion and homosexual marriage, in addition to rising fornication, adultery, and divorce. Hedonism has helped to lead the world into the credit crises we are in, which is threatening to collapse economies around the globe.

Because of the credit crisis, there have been calls to form a new global currency. This could easily be instituted as a cashless currency. Cash is not widely used anymore, due to advances in computer technology. The technology of the mark of the beast is here, as computer chips are already being embedded in animals, and people who have diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.

Having personally gone through natural child-birth twice, in my opinion it looks like the biblical “birth pangs” are nearing the point of transition, where the regional “birth pangs,” with regional consequences, will “transition” to global judgments, with global consequences during the Tribulation period. Also, lulls between these “birth pangs” are becoming shorter, reflecting the increasing frequency between them, just like human birth pangs.

Those who don’t think we are in the end times, I believe have taken the “epidural” of blindness. Anybody even casually watching can see the lateness of the hour. I believe that the rapture of the Church will be the catalyst to “transition” these signs, from a regional to a global scale:

Luke 21:34-36“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

The more I watch, the more I find that I cannot not watch; if that makes sense. A perfect storm is brewing, and the signs are all pointing to the ever more imminent return of Jesus Christ.

Specific “birth pangs” in the headlines

Luke 21:25-28 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Jesus told us to watch for specific signs leading up to his return. These signs are the “birth pangs” discussed above. When these signs “begin” to happen, we know our redemption is near. While this redemption is ultimately speaking of Israel at the 2nd Coming of Jesus, the “birth pangs” have already begun. In other words, as the “birth pangs” increase in frequency and intensity before our eyes, we know that the Church’s redemption in the rapture is that much sooner.
