As thee WORD of GOD who created all things, Jesus Christ knew very well about the millions of Jews/Hebrews who in the past had been taken captive by the : Assyrians, Babylonians and several others; He also knew that some 1,000,000 Jews would be killed shortly after His crucifixion in 70 .A.D. by Roman soldiers as they not only destroyed the Temple 'BUT' also initiated the great diaspora that would somewhat end over 1860+ years later with the Holocaust ( Matthew 24 : 2 ) He also knew that millions more would perish shortly before His 2nd coming by the unholy 4th and Final Roman Beast and its' Little Horn; in effect and to some degree He WEPT as He saw Jerusalem's : past, present and future before Him and it grieved His heart that His own chosen people rejected : His truth, His love and His mercy. ( That HE is the only true Messiah of Israel prophesied about by the Prophets*) GOD never intended to create men as robots 'BUT' He gave us all the ability and choice of 'FREEWILL' and quite unfortunate most Jews/Hebrews through the ages have chosen the darkness and the lies of Satan to those of His Prophets. ( Luke 23: 28 - 31 ) Presently, in this July of 2018 'MOST' Jews have chosen to reside in a self induced captivity and bondage in Babylon and with her unholy daughters and far, far away from the only promised land that GOD promised their forefathers ( Israel ) although most are thriving in the Babylonian system it has come at a great cost; they are spiritually dead and don't know it just like Ezekiel's early vision of the valley of dry bones 'BEFORE' GOD miraculously intervened and brought them to life. There is nothing more tragic than 'NOT' understanding the 'Signs of the Times' in which one lives in and even more as to being oblivious to 'Handwriting on the Wall.' that reveals to us that GOD's Spirit will 'NOT' always strive with man and that everything under our sun is only 'Temporary' including Israel's secure borders and Jewish prosperity in America ( Genesis 6:3 )
According to the history books, during Jerusalem's long history it has been : attacked 52 times, captured and recaptured some 44 times, besieged 23 times and destroyed twice !!! And according to the Biblical Prophecies; Satan will inspire a world wide final assault against Jerusalem and its Jewish population shortly before our LORD Jesus Christ returns !!!
( Zechariah 14 : 2 )
This student of Bible Prophecy is going to cut to the chase and be blunt with you; we are here to study that which will become thee greatest military threat to : Jerusalem, Israel and its Jewish citizens not too long from today and it most certainly will 'NOT' be Islamic in nature !!!
- Mario Romano; student of strategic studies*
According to how most nations vote in the United Nations; the vast majority of the nations on this planet approve of 'DIVIDING' the city of Jerusalem regardless if it is the only Jewish capital on earth in contrast to over 40+ Islamic capitals all over the Middle East and Asia; GOD is taking notes on all of this and according to Revelation 16 : 19, GOD is also going to decree His Holy Justice in Heaven and destroy all the cities of this world and give them all a taste of true justice and of GOD's Foreign Policy !!! ( Revelation 16: 19 )
Jesus WEPT, GOD can 'NOT' and will 'NOT' overlook unrepented sin, GOD has 'NO' favorite sinners; HE did not even overlook the sins of David a man after His own heart. This student of Theology writes today's article to remind everyone that GOD loves the whole world ( John 3 : 16 ) and that Jesus Christ died not only for the Jews but for all human sinners in all of this globe; if Jesus were to walk the streets of : Moscow, New York City, Tokyo, New Delhi and other cities He would also weep for them; like He wept for Jerusalem once because 'ALL' were created by Him and for Him and the sad truth is that most human governments on this planet don't want anything to do with the TRUTH of GOD nor with His Laws and Commandments.
I remember many years ago seeing a movie about a soldier who went to fight it out in the trenches during World War I, as time passed on and his family lost communication with him and just feared the worst, they truly believed that he had died in one of the trenches and were just waiting that any day someone from the military would drive to the front door of their home and give them 'officially' the bad news. Days, passed, months passed and even years passed and no one ever heard what really had happened to their friend, their brother and their son in one of those European trenches replete with : malaria, influenza, typhoid, lice breakouts and numerous fungal infections !!! Many soldiers who fought in the trenches and did not die because of an 'enemies bullet, shrapnel or mustard gas' were often killed by numerous health hazards that most definitely were not manufactured chemical and biological weapons engineered by men but by natures micro-biological critters. After many years that soldier returned back to his town, to his family and to his friends 'BUT' as he walked down the valley where he was able to view the whole town he slowed down and sat on the ground, tears began to flow from his eyes, he could witness from afar that his little town had changed, had grown with more houses, more streets and that even he himself was not the same young and naive man that several years ago had left it. Like that soldier, that town and the world during World War I, time continues to go on and change is inevitable here on earth 'BUT' to all of us who study Jerusalem's unique role in the apex of all human history on this planet we all know of the INEVITABLE and UNSTOPPABLE role that : Jerusalem, Israel and its Jewish citizens will play in this final generation. Jerusalem through the centuries has ravaged by numerous unholy characters and empires and their soldiers 'BUT' only because GOD permitted it; TODAY Jerusalem and Israel are protected by nuclear missiles as well as by some of the latest technological weapons of war and defense out there 'BUT' even so the Biblical Prophecies predict that someone more lethal than Hitler and more of a conqueror than even Alexander the Great is going to put his unholy sight on Jerusalem in this final generation and unfortunately he is going to double-cross the Israeli government and the Jewish people like no other in all of human history***
As Christian believers we should all learn from our Jewish friends, when we live with unconfessed sin and in direct disobedience and rebellion against GOD we too have allowed ourselves out of the : Garden of Eden, out of the Holy Jerusalem & out of the Holy of Hollies; demons will take you captive and make a slave out of you and me if we too allow ourselves to be deceived by the enemy of our soul.
Jesus warned us about such things in Matthew 12 : 45. "NO" believers full of the Holy Spirit can 'NOT' be demon possessed 'BUT' when people choose to return to Egypt and to Babylon you better know that the enemy of your soul will bind you in sin even more than before you were saved*
Today, this student of Bible Prophecy is able to witness a Jerusalem that has come back to life in the hands of its Jewish people 'BUT' it most definitely did not come before a big price had to be paid; the Holocaust, the war of 1948 and then the war in 1967 just to name a few 'dark days' today Jerusalem is full of children running about its ancient streets, trees, flowers and all sorts of vegetation continue to flourish round about it beutifying its imperfections. Yet, I know that 'Peace' will not last, I know that Jerusalem's 'darkest day' has yet to be fulfilled and I learn that 'SIN, REBELLION and DISOBEDIENCE' carries a very big price tag before our Holy Creator !!!
The Holy Scriptures reveal to us that GOD our Creator is a 'SPIRIT' that fills this entire Universe ( 1 Kings 8 : 27 ) It also reveals to us that "NO" mortal man in this corrupt flesh can see 'GOD in ALL of His Glory' and live. Jesus Christ in effect is the physical manifestation of GOD our Creator, those that physically witnessed our LORD Jesus Christ some 2000 years ago in Israel were literally before the very ONE who created this entire Universe, thee very ONE who is the WORD of GOD who became flesh and dwelt amongst us mortals !!!
Israel as it is, is already one of the smallest countries in the Middle East and on this planet and Satan's solution is to make it even smaller and divide it among his minions !!!
The great tragedy of the vast majority of those who witnessed the Ministry of our LORD Jesus Christ is that most of them eventually died in their sins. When we read and study the New Testament we realize that although after Pentecost the Church began to grow substancially the vast majority of Jews at that time chose to believe in the lies of the Pharisees and Saducees rather than in what they saw and heard from our LORD Jesus Christ !!! ( Acts 2 : 41 ) The unfortunate truth is that too many of those who followed the crowd around Jesus only saw Him as an : entertainer, as a great storyteller and a little bit more effective than the 'doctors and healers' of those days. This student of Theology still sees people/ souls in this 21st Century in local churches visiting 'this church and that church' to socialise 'BUT' not really to become true disciples of JESUS CHRIST and what a great tragedy !!!
Atheists would like everyone to believe that even if there was/is a GOD He long ago abandoned humanity. Just look at the mess that most in this planet are in : famine, plagues, diseases, poverty, rampant crime, injustice, political corruption and the list goes on, so say most atheists !!!
The truth is that GOD has never abandoned humanity, he was not just there in the Garden of Eden with Adam but also all through the Old Testament, we see Him talking with Abraham before Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed ( Christophany ) and we also witness Him in the fire with : Daniel, Shadrach, Abednego and Meshach and in other places. Yes, our Omnipresent Creator has a very, very busy schedule all over the 3 Heaven's 'BUT' He still has time for all those who invoke and honor His Holy name with a clean heart !!!
Most people who have yet to make a decision for Christ commonly excuse themselves from the salvation of GOD by stating and believing that 'If only they could see GOD' that would make their decision to fully become true believers much, much easier 'BUT' if we study the life our LORD Jesus Christ we find evidence that; that is 'NOT' necessarily true because when Jesus Christ was alive 'MOST' Jews whom He came to save most definitely did 'NOT' believe that He was GOD !!! The New Testament also confirms to us that in the beginning most of Jesus brothers and sisters ( siblings*) did 'NOT' believe in Him either !!! ( John 7 : 5 and Matthew 13 : 54-56 ) ( Most Roman Catholics have trouble believing that Mary and Joseph could have children after Jesus was born 'BUT' its right there in the Bible, YES, Jesus was born of a Virgin 'BUT' Mary and Joseph were blessed with more children of their own after Jesus was born *)
"NOT" all of Israel's greatest enemies are Muslim, there are several people of Jewish Blood / traitors 'like Judas' ( But not practicing Jews*) who DON'T live surrounded by hundreds of millions of Muslims who harbor very violent plans against Jews; like 'Noam Chomsky' who condemn almost everything that Israel stands for from 7,000+ miles away in the 'peace and comfort' of Massachussets !!! Individuals such as Noam Chomsky always condemn the Israeli government 'BUT' such individuals never offer real world solutions as to where else 5+ million Jews should settle outside of Israel !!! Such individuals would naively try to 'Make a deal with Someone like Hitler' not realizing individuals and groups like : Hitler, Stalin Saddam Hussein, Hamas, Al Qaeda and other godless totalitarians & Terrorist organizations do not care one bit about anyone else's opinions, International Law or about the Geneva Convention !!!
((( ... If looks could kill * )))
In other news, somewhere in Russia*
"NO" I was not surprised about what just happened in Russia this past Sunday, July 15 of 2018. To tell you the truth I was hoping that Croatia would win 'BUT' I suspected that the most likely scenario that would have 'somewhat' of a Biblical Prophecy twist would be the world's focus on 'YouKnowWho.' Honestly speaking I sometimes wish that another 'Watchman' would be on the forefront of what this insignificant 'Watchman' is doing; "BUT" 'it is what it is' eventually someone had to be the first one to do it !!! Because of the timeline of endtime events, this student of Bible Prophecy has "NOT" finalized this specific topic, as a 'Watchman' I'm only reporting on the obvious, things; Presidents, Prime Ministers and others can be booted out of office 'BUT' in the meantime I can "NOT" overlook and underestimate the obvious before me !!! While we are on this topic, this student of Bible Prophecy does 'NOT' approve of those who are already calling "You Know Who' 'You Know What' especially those on Youtube; things and leaders could change overnight because of 'UNFORSEEN' health problems and accidents and I don't want to be labeled by the few true believers and 'Watchers' as crying wolf all the time, this student of Bible Prophecy is working on a credible and biblical timeline, we know that there will be a 7 year Tribulation period ( Daniel's final Week*) 'BUT' we do 'NOT' know how big the time gap will be between the Rapture and the 'Covenant with The Many' so that is why we must be cautious in all of this !!! Who I really am is 'NOT' important i'm just a vessel used by GOD and you better believe that this website is 'NO' accident because if it's the 'Prophetic Time' that i suspect that it is then EUinProphecy.com is one of a very few who are correctly 'Tracking' the enemies moves in light of the Prophecies of Daniel because neither : ESPN, CNN, FOX, the CIA, the NSA, the DCI are going to give you such 'Information' such 'Commercial and Governemental Organizations' are 'Spiritually Clueless' about what is coming this way.
In conclusion, Jerusalem symbolizes more than the physical capital of the Jewish state; Jerusalem according to Bible Prophecy will be the epicenter and headquarter of our LORD Jesus Christ during the Millenium and you better know that Satan wants to destroy it and its chosen people as much as he can get away with !!! Satan is not omnipresent and during the Great Tribulation he will only be able to be at one place at one time and he will set his sight specifically on and against : Jerusalem and the Archangel Michael who 'PROTECTS' it is 'NOT' going to let him overtake it that easily !!! ( Daniel 12 : 1 ) and its 'NOT' that the Archangel Michael will be defeated by that fallen Cherub; its that GOD will allow Satan and his unholy Beast with 10 Horns to fulfill every single Prophecy that GOD ALMIGHTY sovereignly permitted long ago as He revealed to His Prophets. GOD's restraining power will 'STILL' only permit Satan to do so much destruction and killing during the Tribulation because if it was up to Satan 'NO' Jew would be left alive.
By : Mario Romano. GOD has allowed the gentile nations of this world their very own capital and most of those cities do 'NOT' worship the Holy GOD of Israel; the truth is that most of the Capitals of the world are into heavy : Idolatry, Materialism, Hedonism, Paganism and outright Perversion. In most cities of the world today its easier to get a permit for a Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade than for an Evangelistic wide City Crusade !!! Although the ancient Temple in Jerusalem was not exactly in the center of the city, the Temple was the spiritual center of not only the entire city but also of the entire nation of Israel; today the center is most pagan cities include : Sports Stadiums and Global Banking Giants !!! Idolatry and Mammon are the two driving forces in most of the world's capitals today and we know that not to far from today the Jewish people are going to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem and you better know that Satan is 'NOT' going to be very happy about it all, Satan is going to send his unholy 'Special Project' his 'Little Horn' and when that day comes ad the 'Abomination of Desolation' takes place Satan is not going to hold anything back !!! ( Matthew 24 : 15 )
