“But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there.”
2 Chronicles 6:6

Based on previous experience, America should prepare themselves for some type of major disaster thanks to Joe Biden’s speech to the world at the UN General Assembly in NY yesterday.

In the past, whenever an America President puts pressure on Israel to divide the land it doesn’t go well. And this speech was strongly anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian so hang on to your hat!  

Joe Biden addressed the United Nations, telling them that,

“the land of Israel must be divided to fulfill the Two State Solution for a Palestinian state!”

The slow but steady tick, tick of the Bible prophecy clock continues it’s march through the last days until it reaches a resolution.

WWI prepared the land for the Jews with the defeat of Ottoman control over the promised land. WWII prepared the Jews for the land, with God’s chosen people realizing that the only safe place on earth would be their ancient homeland where they could control their own destiny.

And that same land, right now, is being pulled out from under them for the creation of an Allah worshipping, Palestinian terror state. If left up to Biden and his cronies, the Two-State Solution would end up

more like the “Final Solution.”

Joe Biden: US to work for Israeli normalization and two states.

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The United States plans to seek both the normalization of the Jewish state with its Arab neighbors and a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, US President Joe Biden told the United Nations on Tuesday.

Biden set out his foreign policy agenda as one of the first speakers to address the high-level portion of the 78th opening session of the UN General Assembly. He focused on the importance of regional cooperation as a blue-print to solve global crises and conflict, including in the Middle East.

God is getting ready to do an amazing thing, Isaiah 28 calls it His ‘strange work’ and His ‘strange act’. What is that? The LORD is going to allow His chosen people the Jews and His holy city of Jerusalem to fall under the control of the enemy that the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7) may be fulfilled. We are fast closing in on the time of the Tribulation and everything we’re seeing is pointing in that direction.

So lift up your eyes and be ready for the coming of the Lord may be sooner than you think!

“The land which you cross over to possess is a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.”
Deuteronomy 11:11-12

As World War II still raged, thoughtful men and women were thinking about the radically realigned postwar world soon to come. There was special focus on the world’s Jews and a possible homeland for them.

In April of 1943, a relatively obscure US Senator from Missouri drew a direct link between that problem and the United States. “Today — not tomorrow — we must do all that is humanly possible to provide a haven and place of safety for all those who can be grasped from the hands of the Nazi butchers.” He added, “This is not a Jewish problem. It is an American problem — and we must and we will face it squarely and honorably.”

Two years later, God sovereignly removed President Roosevelt and that little known Senator — Harry S. Truman — would take over as President of the United States.

His presidency was marked by major events and major decisions. Those included the end of World War II, history’s only use of atomic weapons in war, the formation of the United Nations, and the beginning of the Cold War.

But from a biblical perspective, the biggest had to do with his commitment “to provide a haven and place of safety” for the Jewish people.

Isaiah 66:8 speaks of a nation being born in a day. In retrospect, we can see that prophecy was fulfilled as a direct reference to the birth of modern Israel on May 14, 1948. Life Magazine described it. “In the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion ended nearly 2,000 years of Jewish longing for a homeland with a great blow of his fist upon the speakers’ table. ‘The name of our state shall be Israel,’ he intoned, and a new nation was born.”

Just eleven minutes after the nation’s rebirth, President Harry Truman became the first world leader to officially recognize it. Truman later said, “I had faith in Israel even before it was established. I knew it was based on the love of freedom, which has been the guiding star of the Jewish people since the days of Moses.”

This began an extraordinary relationship between

the United States and Israel. Not coincidentally, the US then entered an era of prosperity unprecedented in world history. When God first told Abraham about the land, He also said in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Turning Away

But today, Republicans and Democrats are openly questioning the special relationship between Israel and the United States. Some question US aid to Israel, not understanding that Israel is a strategic outpost of democracy in the Middle East. Help for Israel is help for us.

For instance, in 1981, the Israeli Air Force destroyed Iraqi’s nuclear reactor. Just ten years later In 1991, US forces would face Iraq on the battlefield. Because of Israel’s intervention ten years before, the US did not face a nuclear Iraq.

Now 30 years later, under the radical presidency of Joe Biden and his godless cronies, our country has turned from God and our once great nation sees little need for the Jewish State when in reality,

America needs Israel, more than Israel needs America!

Harry Truman, Bible-believing president, enabled ‘Israel’s modern Exodus’ 76 years ago!

The president believed “I am Cyrus. I am Cyrus.”

Whereas Moses played the key role in the first exodus and King Cyr

us in the second, the third was coordinated under the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman, who took office on April 12, 1945.

That day was a turning point for both Truman and the Jewish nation, as it began a process that freed Jews from nearly 2,000 years of exile and slavery in Nazi Germany, also fulfilling Amos’ prophecy of Jewish permanent settlement in the land of Israel.
Associated with this promise of God is one of the most interesting verses in the Bible (Jer. 32:41), which is, in fact, the only passage in the Bible when God says He is doing something “with all his heart:”
“I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.”

Israel and the Middle East

“Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”

Psalms 2:1-3

Israel Strikes Terror Target


In a rare daytime strike, Israel destroyed a Hezbollah site in Tartus in western Syria. Three terrorists were killed in the missile attack which originated from the Mediterranean. Israel, per usual, declined to comment on the event. Then, that same night, Israel struck again, flying over Lebanon to reach the Shariat Airbase in Homs. The base and other headquarters were damaged.


Mossad Thwarts Attacks on Jews Around the World

Mossad director David Barnea stated in a speech that his agency has thwarted 27 attacks against Israelis and Jews around the world over the past year. Countries where these attacks were planned included Cyprus, Tanzania, India, and others. “We are witnessing a significant increase in attempts to attack Jews and Israelis worldwide, and as we speak, we continue to track Iranian and proxy teams to prevent them from killing Jews and Israelis,” said Barnea. In his speech, he also explained how Israel was able to interdict a deal in which Iran would sell Russia short-range and long-range missiles to be used against Ukraine.


Israel Signs Wheat Deal with Muslim Countries

Israel signed a historic wheat deal with two Muslim countries, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. In exchange for wheat imports, Israel will provide these countries with advanced agricultural technologies. While a great deal for all three nations, the one country that will not be happy about this is Russia. Currently, Israel is a major importer of Russia

n wheat. This agreement could reduce the volume of imports from the Russians. This is just one more reason for Moscow to be unhappy with Israel.


Massive Quake Rocks Morocco


Last Friday evening, the ground in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco began to shake. Buildings collapsed, landslides were triggered, roads were blocked, and people were killed. So far, the death toll from the earthquake has reached 2,901 with 5,530 injured, making it the deadliest North African earthquake in 63 years. Israel has offered to send search-and-rescue teams, joining the numerous nations who are willing to help in the quake’s aftermath.

Cyclone Daniel Devastates Libya

The Mediterranean storm, designated Daniel, has left large portions of Libya underwater. Worst hit is the city of Derna which was deluged when two dams collapsed in the mountains above the city. Whole neighborhoods were washed away in a moment. The Libyan Minister of Health expects the death toll to reach 10,000 and the missing to be ten times that number. Meanwhile, flooding continues in areas around the world: Shatoujiao, Shenzhen, China; Hong Kong; Yangchun, Guangdong, China; Gateshead, England; Shanghai, China; Molina de Segura, Murcia province, Spain; Weda Bay, Maluku, Indonesia; along with many other locations.


In Armenia/Azerbaijan Conflict, Iran is the One to Blink


The slow burn between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed autonomo

us oblast of Nagorno-Karabakh threatened to burst into flames this past weekend. Both sides raced troops toward their joint border, while calling on their allies to back them up. Iran threatened Azerbaijan saying they better back down. Turkey and Pakistan immediately told Iran that they best stay in their lane. Eventually, Iran backed down under pressure not only from outside the country, but likely also from the 20 million of their citizens of Azeri origin. Russia has also been involved in the past on the Armenian side, but they declined to get involved having enough problems of their own already in Ukraine. After a lot of saber-rattling, Armenia and Azerbaijan reached an agreement which should calm things back down, at least for now.

US Pays Iran $6 Billion for Hostages


The news media will sugarcoat the deal that the Biden administration has just made with Tehran’s Islamic regime saying that they simply waived sanctions on $6 billion as part of what is really just a prisoner swap. Our guys for their guys – oh, and $6 billion. In reality, everyone recognizes this for what it is. Tehran took US citizens as hostages, and Washington just paid $6 billion ransom to get them back. “Wait,” say Biden’s apologists, “the agreement is that this money will be used for humanitaria

n purposes.” But no one believes that, not even Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi. “This money belongs to the Iranian people, the Iranian government,” said Raisi, “so the Islamic Republic of Iran will decide what to do with this money.” Could it go toward their uranium stockpile, which the IAEA said is now within one month of having enough enriched uranium for six bombs and four months away from having enough for ten? Or might it go toward the airport that Iran is building in Lebanon – just 20km away from the Israeli border – which they will use to launch terrorist attacks? The ayatollahs are going to be able to check a lot of items off their to-do list with $6 billion.


Biden and Modi Announce New Railway and Trade System Connecting Asia with the West

new railway and trade system could better unite India and Asia with the West, according to US President Joe Biden, Indian President Narendra Modi, and others at the G20 Summit in New Delhi, India. The route would pass through Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, and Israel before moving into Europe. This would essentially make Israel a substitute trade way in place of using the congested Suez Canal.


North Korea May or May Not have Launched their First Nuclear Sub


North Korea launched its first fully operational tactical nuclear attack submarine. South Korea immediately attempted to rain on Kim Jong-un’s underwater parade by saying that “fully operational” might be a bit of an exaggeration. The implication is that “somewhat operational” or “at least it doesn’t sink” might be better descriptors. Soon after leaving the unveiling of the sub, the North Korean leader hopped on his personal train and headed northeast to Vladivostok, Russia. Once there, he met Russia President Vladimir Putin at a cosmodrome for talks. The expectation is that Putin will ask Kim for artillery and ammunition

, while Kim will want technology in return. This is the first time the two neighbors have met since 2019.

God is in Control


Amid the many end-time crises in our own country and the troubles surrounding Israel, the Lord’s church must not give in to the deception, chaos, and lawlessness that we see all around us. To do so often leads to anger, despair, and depression. We must remember that God is in control.

Our duty is to keep one

eye on the world, but the other squarely focused on the Word of God. It is from the latter

that we may experience comfort, hope, and peace during society’s insanity. “LOOKING FOR JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.”

One of the most important international agreements in modern history is being secretly negotiated behind the scenes, and once it is publicly announced it could fundamentally change the geo-political make-up of the Middle East.


From a Bible prophecy perspective, what’s currently taking place has the potential to leap-frog us onto the doorstep of the Tribulation.

The ramifications of Saudi Arabia, the most fully committed Muslim country on earth, who serves as the religious authority and head of Islam, making a peace deal with the Jewish State is explosive enough. Add in the likelihood of Israel and Saudi Arabia partnering in support of a new home for the Palestinians and you have a whole new breakthrough in Bible prophecy.


That’s what we see happening in the near future and that’s why we’re asking for your prayers that our heavenly Father would graciously grant all of us a special discernment and wisdom in understanding His sovereign plan today!


Spiritual discernment is the skill of separating truth from error which Scripture encourages us to do, “examine everything carefully” (1 Thess. 5:21). It is a call to believers that is especially relevant in the last days with such deception taking place daily. Without discernment, you can get virtually any biblical truth, cultural trend or political development wrong.

The last days are challenging times for all of us that require a fresh intimacy with the Lord, new empowerment, godly discernment, added strength to persist and stamina to prevail in all He’s called us to do.


While we’re engaging and studying this month, we‘re also praying for you because we consider you part of this ministry through your giving, serving and prayers.


As we pray for you, will you pray along with us? We believe the Lord can fully prepare us to fulfill what He has called us to, but we know that “apart from Him, we can do nothing.” Will you please join us?

Palestinians Demand Territorial Concessions from Israel in Exchange for Saudi deal

9/9/23  By Tim Buck

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.”Zechariah 12:2

Note: You can read part one HERE and part two HERE

The Palestinian Authority in Ramallah presents its list of conditions for supporting US-brokered peace deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia.


The Palestinian Authority (PA) recently presented a list of demands for Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United States to fulfill for it to approve a deal that would see Riyadh establish diplomatic relations with Jerusalem while receiving a NATO-like defense pact from Washington and a civilian nuclear program.


In a meeting with Saudi National Security Adviser Musaed al-Aiban, top PA officials, including President Mahmoud Abbas’ handpicked heir-apparent, Hussein al-Sheikh, discussed their desires, which followed closely to those leaked over a week ago from a meeting they held with US Assistant Secretary of State Barbara Leaf in Amman.
According to a BBC report citing a “senior Palestinian official familiar with the discussions,” these included concessions from all three countries:

  • The PA wants the Saudis to renew their annual $200 million in financial support, which had been greatly reduced in 2016 and then ceased in 2020 due to Riyadh’s displeasure over Palestinian corruption and non-governability over parts of its territory.
  • Ramallah is also demanding the U.S. force Israel back to the negotiating table, starting off from the point talks broke down in 2014 in Annapolis, Maryland, when, for example, Israel was reportedly willing to give up sovereignty in the

    Jordan Valley as long as the IDF could have a presence there for an unidentified period of time in order to ensure Israel’s security.

  • Another demand made of the Americans was to reopen their consulate in Jerusalem that served as Washington’s informal representation to the PA, which president Trump had closed.


According to a report last week in the Times of Israel, the reported laundry list for Washington was even longer.It included Washington’s supporting recognition of a Palestinian state at the UN, and canceling legislation such as the so-called “Pay for Slay” law that proscribes funding the PA directly until it stops paying generous salaries to Palestinians imprisoned in Israel for having committed terrorist attacks.

While the Saudis have already offered to restore financial aid, and the U.S. would probably not be averse to hosting peace negotiations once more, the embassy reopening would legally depend on Israel’s permission, which even its previous unity government had refused to give.

But the thorniest demands are those being made of Israel. The Palestinians are insisting that Israel “completely” stop all settlement growth in Judea and Samara, and also transfer control over parts of Area C to the PA, thereby turning them into Area B and effectively enlarging its territory.

Meanwhile, although several top American officials have been flying into Riyadh for discussions regarding the agreement, the talks are far from reaching completion on any side.

Make The Lord
Center of Your Life

According to Ezekiel, God placed Israel in the center of the nations,“This is what the Sovereign LORD says: This is Jerusalem, which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her. Ez. 5:5.


After placing Israel as the navel of the earth, then God placed Jerusalem in the center of Israel and after that He placed the glorious Temple Mount in the center of Jerusalem.The center of the Temple Mount is the Temple and the centerpiece of the Temple is the Holy of Holies where the ark of the covenant takes center stage as a picture of all the precious ministries of Jesus who would shed His blood in order to be central in our lives every day! 

When the Temple of Solomon was sanctified (2 Chron. 7:1-3), and God moved in, the Shekinah glory of God filled the place, the priests were prostrated, and the Spirit brought a holy hush to the sanctuary. As the worshippers assembled no one was able to stand because the presence of God was so powerful.

Thus the Light was set on the lampstand, and the city set on God’s holy hill that all the world might walk in its light.
