Why Should We Study Bible Prophecy?
To be watchful of the signs of the last days,
which is scriptural.  Jesus himself told us to
keep watch.  Consider the following passage  
  • 1 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and
    testing Him asked that He would show them a sign
    from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them,
    When it is evening you say, It will be fair
    weather, for the sky is red 3 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.
    Matthew 161-3

3
  • The purpose of Bible Prophecy is to warn the
    listener that time is getting short, and to make
    a decision for Christ!

4
The Apostle Paul wrote about a special crown of
righteousness that is reserved for the watchman
who is on lookout for His (Jesus) return.
  • I have fought the good fight, I have finished the
    race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is
    laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which
    the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on
    that Day, and not to me only but also to all who
    have loved His appearing. 2 Timothy 47-8

5
What Should Our Attitude Be Concerning The End
Times?
  1. The Lord intends us as Believers to respond in a
    positive attitude
  2. To encourage each other and indeed exhort us on
    to live joyous and victorious Christian lives
  3. To exhort us for evangelism while we still can
  4. To draw peoples' attention to the predictive
    prophecy and divine self-proving element of a
    Book that so many dismiss too quickly

6
  • "For the grace of God has appeared, bringing
    salvation to all men, instructing us to deny
    ungodliness and worldly desires and to live
    sensibly, righteously and godly in the present
    age, looking for the blessed hope and the
    appearing of the glory of our great God and
    Saviour, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to
    redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify
    for Himself a people for His own possession,
    zealous for good deeds. These things speak and
    exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one
    disregard you." (Titus 211-15)

Signs Indicating We Are In The Last Days 
  • RETURN OF THE ETHIOPIAN JEWS TO ISRAEL
  • Zephaniah 310-11 "From beyond the
  • rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, My
  • dispersed ones, will bring My offerings.
  • In that day you will feel no shame
  • because of all your deeds by which you
  • have rebelled against Me For then I
  • will remove from your midst your proud,
  • exulting ones, and you will never again
  • be haughty on My holy mountain."

In 1984, Operation Moses saw the airlift of
15,000 Jews who had already fled to refugee camps
in Sudan to escape starvation. In 1991,
Operation Solomon flew 20,000 Jews to Israel from
Ethiopia itself. A further airlift began in June
of 1999, aimed at transporting the last 3,000
members of the Quara Jewish community from
northeastern Ethiopia to Israel
11
  • APPEARANCE OF THE RED HEIFER AFTER 2000 YEARS
  • Numbers 192-7 2"This is the statute of the law
    which the LORD has commanded, saying, "Speak to
    the sons of Israel that they bring you an
    unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and
    on which a yoke has never been placed. 3"You
    shall give it to Eleazar the priest, and it shall
    be brought outside the camp and be slaughtered in
    his presence.

A Red Hiefer is required for the waters of
purification. In May 1997 the first Red Heifer
was born in 2000 years.
12
  • GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS
  • 2 Timothy 31-5,7 1But realize this, that in the
    last days difficult times will come. 2For men
    will be lovers of self, lovers of money,
    boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents,
    ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, unforgiving,
    malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal,
    haters of good, 4treacherous, reckless,
    conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers
    of God 5holding to a form of godliness, although
    they have denied its power 7always learning and
    never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
  • APOSTASY (FALLING AWAY FROM THE FAITH)
  • 1 Timothy 41-3 1But the spirit explicitly says
    that in later times some will fall away from the
    faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and
    doctrines of demons. 2by means of the hypocrisy
    of liars seared in their own conscience as with a
    branding iron, 3men 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.
  • The rising popularity of the new age movement,
    eastern religions, meditation, and belief in past
    lives and reincarnation.
  • Christian denominations departing from the
    original teachings of the Bible.

13
  • INCREASE IN KNOWLEDGE AND TRAVEL
  • Daniel 124 "But as for you, Daniel, conceal
    these words and seal up the
  • book until the end of time many will go back and
    forth, and knowledge
  • will increase.
  • INCREASES IN NUMBER OF EARTHQUAKES
  • Earthquakes over 6 on the Richter scale
  • 1880-1890 1 1890-1900 1 1900-1910 3
    1910-1920 2
  • 1920-1930 2 1930-1940 5 1940-1950 4
    1950-1960 9
  • 1960-1970 13 1970-1980 46 1980-1990 53
    1990-2000 1,661
  • 2000-2011 1782
  • Matthew 247-8 Nation will rise against nation,
    and kingdom against kingdom. There will be
    famines and earthquakes in various places. All
    these are the beginning of birth pains (before
    the 7 years of tribulation for the Jews begins).

14
Our Nations Need to Return to God
  • It is rightly impossible to govern the world
    without God and the Bible.  President George
    Washington

If we will not be governed by God, we must be
governed by tyrants.  William Penn
Almost all of the civil liberty now enjoyed in
the world owes its origin to the principles of
the Christian religion.  The religion which has
introduced civil liberty, is the religion of
Christ and his apostles.  This is genuine
Christianity, and to this we owe out free
constitutions of government.  Noah Webster
God intends you to choose for rulers just men
who will rule in the fear of God.  If the
citizens neglect their duty and place
unprincipled men in office, the government will
soon be corrupt.  Daniel Webster
It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too
often that this great nation was founded, not by
religionists, but by Christians.  Patrick Henry
15
Let me live according to those holy rules which
Thou hast this day prescribed in Thy holy word. 
Direct me to the true object, Jesus Christ the
way, the truth, and the life.  Bless, O Lord,
all the people of this land.  Reason and
experience both forbid us to expect that National
Morality can prevail in the exclusion of
religious principle.  A prayer made
by President George Washington during his
presidential inauguration
16
President Thomas Jefferson Whom many have tried
to accredit for the separation of Church and
State had this to say My Views are the result
of a lifetime of inquiry and reflection, and very
different from the anti-Christian system imputed
to me by those who know nothing of my opinions.
To the corruptions of Christianity I am, indeed,
opposed but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus
himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in
which He wished anyone to be sincerely attached
to his doctrines in preference to all others. 
17
If My people who are called by My name will
humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and
turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal
their land. 2 Chronicles 714
18
  • Perilous Times and Perilous Men
  •  But know this, that in the last days perilous
    times will come For men will be lovers of
    themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud,
    blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful,
    unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers,
    without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
    traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure
    rather than lovers of God, having a form of
    godliness but denying its power. And from such
    people turn away! For of this sort are those who
    creep into households and make captives of
    gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by
    various lusts, always learning and never able to
    come to the knowledge of the truth.
    2 Timothy 31-7

19
The End Times According to Jesus
  • Matthew 241-44 
  • Jesus Predicts the Destruction of the Temple
  •  1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the
    temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the
    buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to
    them, Do you not see all these things?
    Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be
    left here upon another, that shall not be thrown
    down.
  •    

20
  • The Great Tribulation
  •     15 Therefore when you see the abomination
    of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
    standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let
    him understand), 16 then let those who are in
    Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on
    the housetop not go down to take anything out of
    his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not
    go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those
    who are pregnant and to those who are nursing
    babies in those days! 20 And pray that your
    flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21
    For then there will be great tribulation, such as
    has not been since the beginning of the world
    until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And
    unless those days were shortened, no flesh would
    be saved but for the elects sake those days
    will be shortened.

21
False Messiahs
Then if anyone says to you, Look, here is the
Christ! or There! do not believe it. For false
christs and false prophets will rise and show
great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible,
even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.
  •     Therefore if they say to you, Look, He is
    in the desert! do not go out or Look, He is in
    the inner rooms! do not believe it. For as the
    lightning comes from the east and flashes to the
    west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man
    be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles
    will be gathered together.    

22
False Messiahs (Cont)
  • The Raelians
  • An atheist religion led by Claude Vorilhon, who
    calls himself Rael - the last four letters of
    "Israel". The group claims a membership of at
    least 55,000 followers worldwide. "Raelians"
    believe that scientists from another planet
    created the human race, and that monotheism
    should be totally replaced by science.  This
    group gives "Crazy" a whole new meaning!
  •    

23
False Messiahs (Cont)
  • Sun Myung Moon
  • Moon is a South Korean citizen and the founder
    and leader of the Unification Church, a
    world-wide occult organization that believes Moon
    to be the "Messiah" sent by God to complete the
    earthly mission of Jesus. His followers number in
    the millions.
  •    

24
  • The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
  •     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 rumors of wars. See that you are not
    troubled for all 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, 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 names
    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.    

25
  • The Parable of the Fig Tree
  •     32 Now learn this parable from the fig tree
    When its branch has already become tender and
    puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.
    33 So you also, when you see all these things,
    know that it is nearat the doors! 34 Assuredly,
    I say to you, this generation will by no means
    pass away till all these things take place. 35
    Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words
    will by no means pass away.   

26
No One Knows the Day or Hour
36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not
even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37
But as the days of Noah were, so also will the
coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the
days before the flood, they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until
the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not
know until the flood came and took them all away,
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
  •     40 Then two men will be in the field one
    will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women
    will be grinding at the mill one will be taken
    and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you
    do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But
    know this, that if the master of the house had
    known what hour the thief would come, he would
    have watched and not allowed his house to be
    broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for
    the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not
    expect.   Matthew 241-44 

27
The Destruction of Jerusalem in the Words of Jesus
  •     But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by
    armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21
    Then let those who are in Judea flee to the
    mountains, let those who are in the midst of her
    depart, and let not those who are in the country
    enter her. For these are the days of vengeance,
    that all things which are written may be
    fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and
    to those who are nursing babies in those days!
    For there will be great distress in the land and
    wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the
    edge of the sword, and be led away captive into
    all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by
    Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are
    fulfilled.
  • Luke 2120-24 

28
  • Jerusalem was so war-torn that its citizens had
    to climb over dead bodies in the Temple to offer
    their sacrifices. Thousands of Jews inside the
    city were dying of famine and plague, while Titus
    continued to pick away at the citys walls. Once
    inside, Titus troops burned the temple, taking
    some Jews captive and slaughtering others. An
    estimated total of 1,100,000 people had died
    during the course of the war, and the revolt
    finally ended when the last group of zealots was
    put down in Masada three years later.

29
  • In all, 6 different books of the Bible predict
    the scattering of Israel amongst all the nations
    of the earth. History records this being
    fulfilled in 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed
    by the Roman Empire and the remaining Jews were
    scattered amongst the nations.

Prophecies Concerning Israel
  • By far, the greatest number of prophecies in the
    Bible concern the nation of Israel. In fact, many
    have said that if you want to know what time it
    is on God's clock, then look at the nation of
    Israel, for she shall be the center of attention
    in the fulfillment of Bible prophecies in these
    last days. Today we live in an age when the
    entire focus of the world is upon a tiny strip of
    land in the Middle East called Israel. So lets
    have a look at what Bible prophecy says about
    this nation.

34
  •  
  • 63 And it shall be, that just as the LORD
    rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply
    you, so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy
    you and bring you to nothing and you shall be
    plucked from off the land which you go to
    possess.

1. Disobedience would lead to the nation of
Israel being scattered amongst all nations
35
  • 64 Then the LORD will scatter you among all
    peoples, from one end of the earth to the other,
    and there you shall serve other gods, which
    neither you nor your fathers have knownwood and
    stone. 65 And among those nations you shall find
    no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a
    resting place but there the LORD will give you a
    trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of
    soul. 66 Your life shall hang in doubt before
    you you shall fear day and night, and have no
    assurance of life. 67 In the morning you shall
    say, Oh, that it were evening! And at evening
    you shall say, Oh, that it were morning!
    because of the fear which terrifies your heart,
    and because of the sight which your eyes see.  

Deut 2863-67
36
  • 2. The people of Israel would return to their
    own land
  • Ezekiel 3413 I will bring them out from the
    nations and gather them from the countries, and I
    will bring them into their own land. I will
    pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the
    ravines and in all the settlements in the land.
  • Amos 914-15 I will bring back my exiled people
    Israel they will rebuild the ruined cities and
    live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink
    their wine they will make gardens and eat their
    fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land,
    never again to be uprooted from the land I have
    given them," says the Lord your God.

37
3. God Himself Would Restore the Jews to the Land
of Israel From All The nations
  • Jer 1614-16 However, the days are coming,"
    declares the LORD, "when men will no longer say,
    As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the
    Israelites up out of Egypt, but they will say,
    As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the
    Israelites up out of the land of the north and
    out of all the countries where he had banished
    them. For I will restore them to the land I gave
    their forefathers.

38
  • Behold, I will gather them out of all countries
    where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury,
    and in great wrath I will bring them back to
    this place, and I will cause them to dwell
    safely. 38 They shall be My people, and I will be
    their God then I will give them one heart and
    one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the
    good of them and their children after them. And I
    will make an everlasting covenant with them, that
    I will not turn away from doing them good but I
    will put My fear in their hearts so that they
    will not depart from Me. Yes, I will rejoice over
    them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant
    them in this land, with all My heart and with all
    My soul. Jeremiah 3237-41

39
4. The Desolate land of Israel Would Again
Blossom and be Fruitful in the Last Days
  • History records that while the Jewish people were
    exiled amongst many nations, the land of Israel
    was a barren desert.  
  • This is exactly the case today! Not only has God
    bought the Jewish people back into their land
    like He said He would in the last days, but He
    has also blessed the land so that they now export
    flowers and fruit around the world! Satellite
    photos show the green pastures of the nation of
    Israel, in sharp contrast with the surrounding
    desert lands of the Arab nations.

Isa 276 In the days to come, Jacob will take
root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill the
world with fruit.
40
  • Mark Twain visited Israel in 1867, and published
    the following
  • .. A desolate country whose soil is rich
    enough, but is given over wholly to weeds a
    silent mournful expanse. a desolation. we never
    saw a human being on the whole route. hardly a
    tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and
    the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless
    soil, had almost deserted the country.

41
  • 5. God would watch over the people of Israel
  • Jeremiah 3110 "Hear the word of the Lord, O
    nations proclaim it in distant coastlands He
    who scattered Israel will gather them and will
    watch over His flock like a shepherd.'

42
  • 6. The Fortunes of the People of Israel Would Be
    Restored
  • Deuteronomy 303-5 Then the Lord your God will
    restore your fortunes and have compassion on you
    and gather you again from all the nations where
    he scattered you. Even if you have been banished
    to the most distant land under the heavens, from
    there the Lord your God will gather you and bring
    you back. He will bring you to the land that
    belonged to your fathers, and you will take
    possession of it. He will make you more
    prosperous and numerous than your fathers.

43
  • The United States Geological Survey (USGS)
    released a report that the Levant Basin contains
    1.689 billion barrels of undiscovered oil and
    122.4 trillion cubic feet of undiscovered natural
    gas. The Levant Basin lies both onshore and
    offshore and includes most of middle and northern
    Israel and coastal Lebanon and Syria. The basin
    includes the exploration areas of Noble Energy
    offshore and Zion Oil Gas onshore.

44
Supporting Prophecies
  • Deuteronomy 3318-19 (Amplified Bible)
  • 18And of Zebulun he said Rejoice, Zebulun, in
    your interests abroad, and you, Issachar, in your
    tents at home. 19They shall call the people
    unto Mount Carmel there they shall offer
    sacrifices of righteousness, for they shall suck
    the abundance of the seas and the treasures hid
    in the sand.
  • Deuteronomy 33 13-17
  •  And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the Lord be
    his land, for the precious things of heaven, for
    the dew and for the deep that couches beneath,
    and for the precious fruits brought forth by the
    sun, and for the precious things put forth by the
    moon, and for the chief things of the ancient
    mountains, and for the precious things of
    primordial hills, and for the precious things of
    the earth, and its fullness, and for the good
    will of him that dwelt in the bush. Let the
    blessings come upon the head of Joseph, and upon
    the top of the head of him who was separated from
    his brothers.

45
Supporting Prophecies Continued
Deuteronomy, chapter 3212-13  For the LORDs
portion is His people Jacob (Israel) is the
place of His inheritance.
  • 12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was
    no strange god with him.
  • 13 He made him ride on the high places of the
    earth, that he might eat the increase of the
    fields and he made him to suck honey out of the
    rock, and oil out of the flinty rock

46
  • Deuteronomy 33 24
  •  And of Asher he said, be Asher blessed above
    sons let him be acceptable to his brethren, and
    let him dip his foot in oil.
  • To date, thousands of Christian and Jewish
    supporters have invested into companies like
    Nobel Energy and Zion Oil Gas, to include well
    know End Times bible teachers such as Tim LaHaye,
    Hal Lindsey, Pastor John Hagee, and many, many
    others.

47
7. God Himself would defend Israel and cause
Israel to be mighty in battle
  • Zech 128 On that day the LORD will shield those
    who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among
    them will be like David, and the house of David
    will be like God, like the Angel of the LORD
    going before them.
  • Taken in context, this verse speaks about God
    defending Israel in a battle to come in the last
    days. And yet, have we not seen this miraculously
    occur several times since Israel became a nation
    again in 1948? They have been greatly outnumbered
    in key Arab-Israeli wars in 1948, 1967, and 1973.
    Yet Israel exists!
  • God has seen to that!

48
8. In the Last Days, Jerusalem Would Be a Burden
to the Entire World
  • Zech 122-3 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup
    of trembling unto all the people round about...
    And in that day will I make Jerusalem a
    burdensome stone for all people all that burden
    themselves with it shall be cut in pieces.
  • Turn on your TV and watch the news. What nation
    and what city would you most likely expect to
    see? Israel and Jerusalem! Today, Jerusalem is a
    burden that causes trembling for all the nations
    just as God foretold. What makes this prophecy
    even more remarkable is that when the prophet
    Zechariah spoke these words around 520BC,
    Jerusalem lay in ruins. But God said it would
    become the focus of the world's attention! Today,
    Israel has 0.01 of the worlds population, yet
    33 of the United Nations resolutions have been
    passed concerning her!

49
9. In The End, ALL Nations Shall Come Against
Israel
  • Zech 142 I will gather all the nations to
    Jerusalem to fight against it the city will be
    captured, the houses ransacked, and the women
    raped.
  • Apart from the USA, Israel has few allies. In a
    recent conference on racism in South Africa, the
    Israeli and United States delegates were forced
    to walk out as the other participating nations
    vented their anger towards Israel and tried to
    declare it a racist state. One day, the Bible
    predicts, she will have no allies, and all
    nations shall be gathered against her. Todays TV
    news show that we are already on the road towards
    that battle.

50
10. God Himself, Jesus Christ, will return and
fight for Israel against the attacking nations
  • Zech 143-4 Then the LORD will go out and fight
    against those nations, as he fights in the day of
    battle. On that day his feet will stand on the
    Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount
    of Olives will be split in two from east to west,
    forming a great valley, with half of the mountain
    moving north and half moving south.

51
11. The nation of Israel will finally recognize
that Jesus was their Messiah, whom they
crucified!
  • Zech 129-10 On that day I will set out to
    destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.
    And I will pour out on the house of David and the
    inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and
    supplication. They will look on me, the one they
    have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one
    mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for
    him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
  • Even though the Bible predicted that the Messiah
    would die, and have His feet and hands pierced,
    the nation of Israel has, for the last 2000
    years, hardened their heart and not believed that
    Jesus was their Messiah. At the time of the end,
    they will again look to the one whom they
    pierced, and how great the mourning and sadness
    will be on that day for what they did! Yet Jesus
    will pour out His grace upon Israel!

52
12. God will judge the nations depending upon
their treatment of the Jewish people
  • Joel 11-2 In those days and at that time, when I
    restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I
    will gather all nations and bring them down to
    the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter
    into judgment against them concerning my
    inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered
    my people among the nations and divided up my
    land. 
  • Today we live in an age where we hear all the
    time about a 'Middle-East peace process'. It
    essentially comes down to 'Israel give up more of
    your land and we won't send as many suicide
    bombers into your cities...' It seems everyone
    wants a slice of Jerusalem for themselves. For
    this, and the world's repeated and continual
    unfair and unjust treatment of the Jewish people,
    the judgment of God will come.

53
13. Jerusalem's Enemies to Be Destroyed
  • 1 This is the word of the LORD concerning Israel.
    The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays
    the foundation of the earth, and who forms the
    spirit of man within him, declares 2 "I am going
    to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the
    surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be
    besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3 On that day,
    when all the nations of the earth are gathered
    against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable
    rock for all the nations. All who try to move it
    will injure themselves.

54
Israel is the Roadmap!
  • The Bible then tells us 'after these things' the
    little nation of Israel and the children of
    Israel will rule over all nations on Earth in
    peace under her King and Messiah Jesus Christ
    (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew). 
  • The Bible says all of the covenants, promises,
    curses, prophecies, and blessings God has made to
    the children and nation of Israel
  • will be fulfilled

55
The Rebirth of Israel
  • Israel would be brought back to life
  • Ezekiel 3710-14
  • The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought
    me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in
    the middle of a valley it was full of bones. He
    led me back and forth among them, and I saw a
    great many bones on the floor of the valley,
    bones that were very dry. He asked me, Son of
    man, can these bones live?
  • I said, O Sovereign LORD, you alone know. Then
    he said to me, Prophesy to these bones and say
    to them, Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
    This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these
    bones I will make breath enter you, and you will
    come to life. I will attach tendons to you and
    make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin
    I will put breath in you, and you will come to
    life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
    So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I
    was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling
    sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.
    I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them
    and skin covered them, but there was no breath in
    them.

56
Then he said to me,
  • Prophesy to the breath prophesy, son of man,
    and say to it, This is what the Sovereign LORD
    says Come from the four winds, O breath, and
    breathe into these slain, that they may live.
    So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath
    entered them they came to life and stood up on
    their feeta vast army. Then he said to me Son
    of man, these bones are the whole house of
    Israel. They say, Our bones are dried up and our
    hope is gone we are cut off. Therefore prophesy
    and say to them This is what the Sovereign LORD
    says O my people, I am going to open your graves
    and bring you up from them I will bring you back
    to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will
    know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves
    and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit
    in you and you will live, and I will settle you
    in your own land. Then you will know that I the
    LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares
    the LORD.
  • Ezekiel 3710-14

57
Israels Rejection Not Total
  • Romans 111-27  (New King James Version)
  •  1 I say then, has God cast away His people?
    Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the
    seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God
    has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or
    do you not know what the Scripture says of
    Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel,
    saying, 3 LORD, they have killed Your prophets
    and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left,
    and they seek my life? 4 But what does the
    divine response say to him? I have reserved for
    Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the
    knee to Baal. 5 Even so then, at this present
    time there is a remnant according to the election
    of grace. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer
    of works otherwise grace is no longer grace. But
    if it is of works, it is no longer grace
    otherwise work is no longer work. 7 What then?
    Israel has not obtained what it seeks but the
    elect have obtained it, and the rest were
    blinded. 8 Just as it is written        God
    has given them a spirit of stupor,        Eyes
    that they should not see       And ears that they
    should not hear,       To this very day. 9 And
    David says        Let their table become a
    snare and a trap,       A stumbling block and a
    recompense to them.        10 Let their eyes be
    darkened, so that they do not see,        And bow
    down their back always. Israels Rejection Not
    Final
  •    

58
  • 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they
    should fall? Certainly not! But through their
    fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has
    come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their fall is
    riches for the world, and their failure riches
    for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!
    13 For I speak to you Gentiles inasmuch as I am
    an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my
    ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to
    jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of
    them. 15 For if their being cast away is the
    reconciling of the world, what will their
    acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 For if
    the firstfruit is holy Abraham and the
    patriarchs, the lump is also holy the nation of
    Israel and if the root Abraham is holy, so
    are the branches the Jewish people. 17 And if
    some of the branches were broken off, and you,
    being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among
    them, and with them became a partaker of the root
    and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast
    against the branches. But if you do boast,
    remember that you do not support the root, but
    the root supports you. 19 You will say then,
    Branches were broken off that I might be grafted
    in. 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were
    broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be
    haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare
    the natural branches, He may not spare you
    either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and
    severity of God on those who fell, severity but
    toward you, goodness, if you continue in His
    goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23
    And they also, if they do not continue in
    unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to
    graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out
    of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and
    were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated
    olive tree, how much more will these, who are
    natural branches, be grafted into their own olive
    tree? 25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you
    should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you
    should be wise in your own opinion, that
    blindness in part has happened to Israel until
    the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And
    so all Israel will be saved, as it is written
           The Deliverer will come out of
    Zion,       And He will turn away ungodliness
    from Jacob        27 For this is My covenant
    with them,       When I take away their sins.

59
Jesus and the Jewish Feasts
  • The annual feast days of the Bible are festivals,
    called "moed," an appointed time and a sacred
    assembly for the purposes of rehearsing. They are
    rehearsals because the way in which the feast
    days are fulfilled is in accordance with the
    rehearsal, and because the fulfillment will occur
    on that exact day.

60
The Passover
  • Jesus is the Passover Lamb of God. behold, the
    Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
    John 129.

61
  • The term "passover" is to be considered in the
    sense of "hovering over", i.e. to protect or
    deliver. God's presence overshadowed His people
    for their protection. The nation of Israel was
    transferred from physical slavery leading to
    death in Egypt, to lifelong service to God.
    Likewise, the believer in Christ is delivered
    from spiritual slavery (bondage to sin) leading
    to death, to a life of service to Christ, leading
    to eternal life. Jesus, the Lamb of God, is our
    Passover.

62
The Feast of Unleavened Bread
  • Jesus is the Unleavened Bread of Life. I am the
    living bread that came down out of heaven if
    anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever
    and the bread also which I shall give for the
    life of the world is My flesh. John 651

63
The Feast of Firstfruits
  • Jesus is the First Fruits. But now Christ has
    been raised from the dead, the first fruits of
    those who are asleep.
  • 1Corinthians 1520

64
The Feast of Weeks (or Pentecost / Harvest)
(Shavuot)
  •  1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come,
    they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And
    suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a
    rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole
    house where they were sitting. 3 Then there
    appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and
    one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all
    filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak
    with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
    utterance.
  • Acts 21-4

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit on the Feast of Weeks
(Pentecost)
65
  • The Feast of Weeks, or Shavuot, was held at the
    beginning of wheat harvesting, seven weeks from
    the Feast of Firstfruits (Leviticus 2315-16). In
    the New Testament it is called Pentecost (Greek
    'pente' fifty). This festival commemorated the
    giving of the Law which took place 50 days after
    the Sabbath following the Passover.
  • "After his suffering, Jesus showed himself to
    these men and gave many convincing proofs that he
    was alive.  He appeared to them over a period of
    forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God."
    Acts 13

66
  • Because Jesus fulfillment of the Spring Feasts
    is so exact, it seems reasonable that He will
    also fulfill the remaining Fall Feasts. Feasts
    Are Divine Appointments - Shadows of Things to
    Come!
  • Leviticus 234
  • These are the feasts of the LORD, holy
    convocations which you shall proclaim at their
    appointed times.

67
  • Referring to the feasts as shadows of things to
    come, the Apostle Paul and states in Colossians
    216-17
  • So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or
    regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths,
    17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the
    substance is of Christ.

68
Jesus and the Jewish Feasts
69
The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah)
  • On Rosh Hashanah a series of Trumpet blasts are
    blown to announce the arrival of God, the King of
    the Universe, the Judge of all Creation, for
    judgment of the righteous whose names are written
    in the Lambs Book lf Life.

70
Almost four months after the Pentecost, though
not at a precise interval, the feast of Trumpets
was a day of rest celebrated with trumpet blasts
and sacrifices when the nation was presented
before God. This prefigured the time when the
Lord came down from heaven with the trumpet call
of God.
71
The days between the Feast of Trumpets and the
Day of Atonement are called
The Days of Awe
72
  • The Days of Awe are devoted to self examination
    and repentance from ones sin and preparation for
    judgment on the Day of Atonement. In Jewish
    eschatology, the Days of Awe are representative
    of a day of trouble that is to come upon the
    earth before the second coming of the Messiah
    (Jer. 306) . This day of trouble is also
    referred to as the birthpangs of the Messiah.
     
  • That time of trouble is also commonly called
  • The Tribulation.

73
Jesus and the Jewish Feasts
74
  • In Jewish eschatology, Rabbis have taught that
    after being resurrected on the Feast of Trumpets,
    the righteous would enter the chupah, or wedding
    canopy, to spend seven years while the day of
    trouble, the seven years of judgment, occur on
    the earth. By examining an ancient Jewish
    wedding, we can more clearly see the picture of
    the union of the church (the bride) with the
    Messiah (the Bridegroom).

75
Feast (Day) of Atonement
  • Day of Atonement
  • (Leviticus 2327)
  • Many believe this prophetically points to the day
    of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return
    to earth. That will be the Day of Atonement for
    the Jewish remnant when they "look upon Him whom
    they have pierced," repent of their sins, and
    receive Him as their Messiah (Zechariah 1210 and
    Romans 111-6, 25-36).

76
Messiahs Return!
  • The Day of Atonement foreshadows two significant
    events Jesus sacrificial death, and Israels
    repentance at the Messiahs return. This will be
    the prophetic fulfillment of the Day of Atonement
    as Israel comes face to face with its Messiah at
    the end of Daniels 70th week (Dan. 924-27), a
    seven-year tribulation period that begins with
    the rise of an evil world ruler known as
    Antichrist.
  • Throughout the tribulation, many Jews will turn
    to Christ in the midst of great persecution,
    acknowledge Him as Lord and receive Him as
    Savior. At the same time, God will pour out His
    wrath on a wicked and Godless world. At the end
    the Jews will receive their Messiah as He comes
    in power and great glory as King of kings and
    Lord of lords.

77
Feast of Tabernacles
  • The Feast of Tabernacles is held with feasting
    and celebration. The name of the Feast of
    Tabernacles derives from God's command to ancient
    Israel to build temporary "tabernacles,"
    sometimes called "booths," to live in during the
    festival. The Israelites left their houses and
    built temporary dwelling places to live in while
    rejoicing before God. These reminded them of
    their release from slavery and their dwelling in
    booths when God brought them out of Egypt
    (Leviticus 2334, 41-43). In stark contrast to
    the hardship of slavery, this festival emphasizes
    rest, peace and prosperity as it meets the needs
    of all people, including strangers, -widows and
    the poor.

78
  • As with all of the Holy Days of The Bible, the
    Feast of Tabernacles has great and joyous
    significance to Christianity. It symbolizes the
    first 1,000 year period, often called the
    "Millennium," that will follow immediately after
    the Return Of Jesus Christ.

  • Obama's Islam Promotion Reaches New Heights
  • Last night in a televised news article, President
    Obama supported the construction of the 9-11
    Mosque and made support for it synonymous with
    defending religious liberty. To make his point,
    the President ignored that there are hundreds of
    mosques in the United States and no one has
    stopped a Muslim who wishes to pray in them.
    Instead he attempted to brush aside opponents of
    the 9-11 mosque as undermining the United States
    Constitution. Debra Burlingame, on behalf of
    9-11 families,  responded with shock and sadness
    at the President's strongly worded message. Her
    statement begins  Barack Obama has abandoned
    America at the place where America's heart was
    broken nine years ago, and where her true values
    were on display for all to see. Since that dark
    day, Americans have been asked to bear the burden
    of defending those values, again and again and
    again. Now this president declares that the
    victims of 9/11 and their families must bear
    another burden. We must stand silent at the last
    place in America where 9/11 is still remembered
    with reverence or risk being called religious
    bigots. It is irresponsible for the President of
    the United States to defend this project when its
    spiritual director has openly sided with
    America's enemies The Imam who refuses to call
    Hamas a terrorist organization, the Imam who says
    America brought 9-11 on itself and who said that
    the founder of Al-Qaeda "Was made in America."
    Instead of questioning a project headed by this
    man, Obama's State Department is using our tax
    dollars to send him throughout the Middle
    East. Obama's position on the Mosque is
    diametrically opposed to the feelings of the
    American people.  We must redouble our efforts to
    stop this mosque. Sign the petition. To add
    insult to injury, Obama's State Department is
    spending our tax dollars to rehabilitate mosques
    overseas.

The Rapture (Supporting Scriptures)
  • The catching away of those who believe in Jesus,
    commonly referred to as the rapture, is clearly
    associated with the sound of the trumpet, as can
    be seen by reading the following Scriptures
  • And He will send forth His angels with a great
    trumpet and they will gather together His elect
    from the four winds, from one end of the sky to
    the other. Matthew 2431
  • Behold, I tell you a mystery we shall not all
    sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment,
    in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet
    for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be
    raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
    I Corinthians 1551-52

84
The Rapture (Supporting Scriptures Continued)
  • Luke 2134-36 34"Be on guard, that your heart may
    not be weighted down with dissipation and
    drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day
    come on you suddenly like a trap 35for it will
    come upon the face of the earth. 36But keep on
    the alert at all times, praying in order that you
    may have strength to escape all these things that
    are about to take place, and to stand before the
    Son of Man.
  • Revelation 310-11 10Because you have kept the
    word of my perseverance, I also will keep you
    from the hour of testing, that hour which is
    about to come upon the whole world, to test those
    who dwell upon the earth. 11I am coming quickly
    hold fast what you have, in order that no one
    take your crown.

85

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trumpet of God and the dead in
Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive
and remain shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air... I

  • A Jewish Wedding

During that time of trouble on earth, the Lord
will protect His bride   For in the day of
trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle In
the secret place of His tent He will hide me He
will lift me up on a rock Psalm 275
88
The ancient Jewish wedding is a picture of Jesus
the Bridegroom and His bride, the church. The
contract (covenant) was sealed at the last supper
when Jesus shared the covenant cup with His
disciples.
  • Jesus, in speaking to the Disciples after the
    last supper said the same words that any Jewish
    man would tell his betrothed.
  •  
  • In My Fathers house are many mansions if it
    were not so, I would have told you. I go to
    prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare
    a place for you, I will come again and receive
    you to Myself that where I am, there you may be
    also. John 142,3.

89
When will the Bridegroom Come for His Bride?
  • 36"No one knows about that day or hour, not even
    the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the
    Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so it
    will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in
    the days before the flood, people were eating and
    drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to
    the day Noah entered the ark 39and they knew
    nothing about what would happen until the flood
    came and took them all away. That is how it will
    be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40Two men
    will be in the field one will be taken and the
    other left. 41Two women will be grinding with a
    hand mill one will be taken and the other
    left.   42"Therefore keep watch, because you do
    not know on what day your Lord will come.

90
  • 43But understand this If the owner of the house
    had known at what time of night the thief was
    coming, he would have kept watch and would not
    have let his house be broken into. 44So you also
    must be ready, because the Son of Man will come
    at an hour when you do not expect him.  
    Matthew 2436-44

91
Will the Church (the Bride) go through the
Tribulation?
92
Much more then, having now been justified by His
blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Romans 59
The Lord's message rang out from you not only in
Macedonia and Achaiayour faith in God has become
known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say
anything about it, for they themselves report
what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how
you turned to God from idols to serve the living
and true God, and to wait for his Son from
heaven, whom he raised from the deadJesus, who
rescues us from the coming wrath. 1
Thessalonians 18-10
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to
obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 who died for us, that whether we wake or
sleep, we should live together with Him. 11
Therefore comfort each other and edify one
another, just as you also are doing. 1
Thessalonians 59-11

The Destruction of Damascus Isaiah 17
  • "An oracle concerning Damascus 'See, Damascus
    will no longer be a city but will become a heap
    of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted
    and left to flocks, which will lie down, with
    no-one to make them afraid." (Isaiah 171-2 NIV)
  • Aroer is in south central Jordan.
  • The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
    and royal power from Damascus the remnant of
    Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,"
    declares the LORD Almighty. (Isaiah 173 NIV)
  • The land of Ephraim is the central West Bank.
  • Aram refers to the Syrians.

94
  • In that day men will look to their Maker and turn
    their eyes to the Holy One of Israel. They will
    not look to the altars, the work of their hands,
    and they will have no regard for the Asherah
    poles and the incense altars their fingers have
    made. In that day their strong cities, which they
    left because of the Israelites, will be like
    places abandoned to thickets and undergrowth. And
    all will be desolation. (Isaiah 177-9 NIV)
  • The highlighted statement indicates that the
    Israelites are combatants in this prophecy.

95
  • "Oh, the raging of many nations they rage like
    the raging sea! Oh, the uproar of the peoples
    they roar like the roaring of great waters!
    Although the peoples roar like the roar of
    surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee
    far away, driven before the wind like chaff on
    the hills, like tumbleweed before a gale. In the
    evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they
    are gone! This is the portion of those who loot
    us, the lot of those who plunder us." (Isaiah
    1712-14 NIV)
  • The above verses describe an ensuing uproar of
    many nations, God's judgment on those nations,
    and a prophecy of a multinational alliance that
    rises against Israel to "loot and plunder."

Judgment on Mount Seir (Ezekiel 35)  1 Moreover
the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 Son
of man, set your face against Mount Seir and
prophesy against it, 3 and say to it, Thus says
the Lord GOD        Behold, O Mount Seir, I am
against you       I will stretch out My hand
against you,       And make you most desolate
       4 I shall lay your cities waste,
      And you shall be desolate.       Then you
shall know that I am the LORD.
97
Mount Seir
  • The origin of the name Mount Seir is not recorded
    in the Bible. Seir was the mountainous region
    allotted to the descendants of Esau, the
    Edomites. Mount Seir is specifically noted as the
    place that Esau made his home (Genesis 368
    Joshua 244).
  • The Edomites had their origin in 2000 BC at the
    birth of Esau. The Edomites were descended from
    Esau who is the brother of Jacob and son of
    Isaac. "Now these are the records of the
    generations of Esau (that is, Edom)." Genesis
    361 "So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir
    Esau is Edom." Genesis 368

98
Judgment on Mount Seir (Ezekiel 35 Cont)  1 5
Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have
shed the blood of the children of Israel by the
power of the sword at the time of their calamity,
when their iniquity came to an end, 6 therefore,
as I live, says the Lord GOD, I will prepare
you for blood, and blood shall pursue you since
you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall
pursue you. 7 Thus I will make Mount Seir most
desolate, and cut off from it the one who leaves
and the one who returns. 8 And I will fill its
mountains with the slain on your hills and in
your valleys and in all your ravines those who
are slain by the sword shall fall. 9 I will make
you perpetually desolate, and your cities shall
be uninhabited then you shall know that I am the
LORD. 10 Because you have said, These two
nations and these two countries shall be mine,
and we will possess them, although the LORD was
there, 11 therefore, as I live, says the Lord
GOD, I will do according to your anger and
according to the envy which you showed in your
hatred against them and I will make Myself known
among them when I judge you. 12 Then you shall
know that I am the LORD. I have heard all your
blasphemies which you have spoken against the
mountains of Israel, saying, They are desolate
they are given to us to consume. 13 Thus with
your mouth you have boasted against Me and
multiplied your words against Me I have heard
them. 14 Thus says the Lord GOD The whole
earth will rejoice when I make you desolate. 15
As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the
house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to
you you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well
as all of Edomall of it! Then they shall know
that I am the LORD.

  • The Gog Magog War in the Final Days
  • Ezekiel 38 - 39

1And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
2Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the
land of aMagog, the prince of Rosh, of Meshech,
and of Tubal, and prophesy against him,     3And
say, Thus says the Lord God Behold, I am against
you, O Gog, chief prince (ruler) of Rosh, of
Meshech, and of Tubal.     4And I will turn you
back and put hooks into your jaws, and I will
bring you forth and all your army, horses and
horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a
great company with buckler and shield, all of
them handling swords--     Ezekiel 381-4
(Amplified)

The Sons of Noah
  • After the great flood, Noah and his three sons
    repopulated the entire earth. We all descended
    from  Noah's three sons Ham, Shem and Japheth.
    So in a sense, we are all related. In Genesis,
    chapter 10, the Bible list the 70 original tribal
    groups, this is often referred to by Biblical
    scholars, as The Table of Nations. To properly
    understand Ezekiel 38 and 39, we need to identify
    Gog, Magog and it's allies. The Bible, is always
    the best source to understanding and prophecy.
  • So it's from this Table of Nations that we first
    begin to learn the identity of Gog and Magog.

101
So, who then is Gog? The word Gog means ruler
or leader. Therefore he is obviously the
leader of Magog,  he is the "Prince of Rosh,
Meshech and Tubal." So Gog will be the leader of
this Russian led military alliance.
102
  • The names of Noah's three sons were Ham, Shem and
    Japheth. These are the sons of Japheth
  • Gomer, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, Tiras and
    Magog.
  • Ancient historian, Joseph Flavius, clearly
    identifies Magog as the founded the Magogians,
    thus named after him, but who were by the Greeks
    called Scythians."

103
The Wall of Al Magog
  • Arab writers confirm that in the Arabic language
    their name for the Great Wall of China is called
    "the wall of Al Magog" because the Great Wall was
    built to keep out the invading armies from Magog.
    All together an area of about 2,000 square miles.
    So clearly this was the former Soviet Union,
    modern day Russia.

104
  • Gog is obviously the leader of Magog,  he is the
    "Prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal." So Gog will
    be the leader of this Russian led military horde.

105
