( This student of Bible Prophecy knows of 69 reasons why the Second Coming is getting ever closer !!! Satan himself knows numerical and historical patterns and although he most definitely does 'NOT' know 'the day or the hour' he fully well knows that something 'very, very' out of the ordinary transpired in May 14 of 1948; and that something was the countdown of the final generation; he fully knows that he is ever running out of time; for he too as us mortals of earth cannot escape the 'Linearity
of Time' in this 'Quarentined Fallen Planet' confined in this temporary subsection of eternity by our : Omnipotent, Omnipresent & Omniscient Creator : JEHOVA : JESUS CHRIST ! ) The rebirth of the state of Israel has reunited millions of Jews that were once scattered throughout more than 98+ nations. Each year both practicing as well as non-practicing Jews gather to celebrate the miracle of their Israeli nation; they all gather to celebrate : their past, their present as well as their future in a geographic place of planet earth that not too long ago was no more than a desert. In effect, the land of Israel has saved the Jews and the Jews have saved the once dying land of Israel. The once almost barren land devoured by the desert has : blossomed and revived and it is now one of the most productive and fertile pieces of real estate on all of planet earth !!! Some may say that Israel has 'REBLOOMED' because of the hard : labor, sweat and tears that Jewish Kibbutz Farmers have invested for several decades now in the once harsh land and yet others may claim that Israeli ingenuity has made the State of Israel what it is today in 2017; 'BUT' the truth is that GOD ALMIGHTY is the one who has made it possible for their return and it is none other than GOD Himself who has 'BLESSED' the : fountains of water, the soil and the fields of Israel !!! ( Ezekiel 36 & 38 )
What is amazing about Israel is that in the short span of one generation; this 'final generation' Israel has managed to overtake all of its surrounding enemies : militarily, politically, financially and socially !!! Today, it is 'NO' secret that Israel is a nuclear power with a flexible nuclear triad; an advantage that 'NO' Arab-Islamic country nor Terrorist group can begin to even dream of matching 'NOT' even Turkey or Iran !!! Politically, Israel is the 'ONLY' true democracy in the entire Middle East; the same cannot be said of : Egypt, Syria, Iran nor Iraq just to name a few. Economically. although Israel is not a great oil producing power like some Arab countries, it long ago diversified its economy and that is what makes Israel a great regional power : its 'human resources' and 'NOT' so much its lone dependence on 'Petro Dollars' ( Oil Wealth ) like its Arab neighbors $$$ !!!
If you do 'NOT' know anything about Bible Prophecy or simply don't seem to understand why JESUS CHRIST was born in Israel in the small town of Bethlehem to Jewish parents this student of Bible Prophecy is going to try and simplify it as much as possible. You and I and every human being who has ever been born on planet Earth was 'CONTAMINATED' by 'SIN' that was passed upon us all both spiritually and biologically by Adam and Eve. ( Spiritual Death ) GOD our CREATOR could have destroyed it all and simply started all over again 'BUT' GOD our CREATOR is 'NOT' a quitter. In effect, every human being who has ever been alive is carrying something like the 'Super Virus' of sin and GOD alone has the 'ANTIDOTE' and that is solely 'THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST' !!! ( Theologically speaking we are all spiritually dead to GOD without the Blood of Jesus Christ*) If you have seen most SCI FI movies as well as Zombie movies you know that there usually is a malevolent viral strain that alters the original human being; in effect 'SIN' has 'Caught Off' our 'Spiritual' connection with our Creator GOD manifested in JESUS CHRIST and even though we have truly all sinned against our Holy Creator; GOD in His great love and mercy sent forth His only begotten Son : Jesus Christ to redeem as many as who will believe in Him; for it is only by the Blood of Jesus Christ that we are able to 'OVERCOME' the : corrupted, evil, unholy and temporary tribulation of this fallen planet that is replete with innumerable : demons, fallen angels and Satan who seek the eternal damnation of as many human beings as possible !!! To some this may seem far-fetched or a mere ancient Hebrew Tale 'BUT' Mario Romano knows that 'NO' other theory or belief system reveals to us more of why 'ALL' men have been dying and why there is evil and wickedness in : Japan just as in Brazil in the Jungles of Africa just as in beautiful Hawaii 'Sin' has infected all men; 'TRULY' we are all like inside a 'Quarentined' planet and GOD is 'ONLY' going to allow only those who have been redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ into the upcoming 'New Jerusalem' !!! Only those who 'Accepted' the antidote to sin 'The Blood of Jesus Christ' will be allowed to exist eternally in a new glorified body and in the perfect 'New Jerusalem' !!! While it is very true that GOD is love ( John 3 : 16 ) our Creator is also a GOD of Wrath and Judgement and 'ALL" those who 'REJECTED' Jesus Christ and His shed Blood ( only the Blood of Jesus Christ can appease our Holy Creator ) have a divine appointment with the very Creator of their souls during the upcoming Tribulation period of 7 years 'NO' GOD is 'NOT' going to allow the majority of humanity off that easily by allowing nuclear war to quickly end all human existence; GOD controls human history through a myriad of ways and GOD alone ( Satan does 'NOT' ) has the power to unseal the Wrath mentioned in the Book of Revelation and it will all be finalized exactly as GOD Almighty decreed it in the Book of Revelation !!! The greatest and biggest enemy of humanity are not bacterial infections nor the microbiological pathogens found all over this fallen planet; the biggest is none other than Satan that through the spiritual world unseen by our human eyes is trying to cutoff as many human souls as possible from reconnecting spiritually back with our Creator GOD. Satan uses numerous ways to deceive most of humanity from truly being redeemed by the 'Blood of the Lamb' Satan uses : False Religions, Pride, Temporary Material Riches, Atheism, Evolution and so many other ways to 'DECEIVE' as many as possible and steering them away from being 'Born Again' unto GOD by the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit of our Creator !!! To some it seems rather primitive and barbaric that GOD chose the Cross of Jesus to redeem humanity; 'BUT' GOD owes nothing to no one, it is by His sheer and sovereign grace that you, me and billions+ of other human beings have been allowed to exist to begin with; those who die without the 'Blood of Jesus Christ' will die in their sins and have condemned themselves to an eternal separation from GOD in hell !!! To our Creator; GOD there are only two types of human beings; those whose sins have been washed by the Blood of His only son and those who have not !!!
'Spiritually Speaking' salvation comes from the Jews; the Holy Scriptures, ( The producers of the Messiah & thee only true Savior of humanity ) the Prophets, the 12 Apostles were all Jews ( Hebrews*) Satan despises this group of people very simply because the Holy Bible that was written by Hebrew Prophets. The Holy Bible is the 'ONLY' book on planet Earth that exposes Satan for what he truly is !!! ( Satan is the 'Father of Lies' and a : Killer, Thief, Destroyer, Accuser and the highest creation of GOD ever to have rebelled against his own Creator : GOD ) IF you and I were able to witness the 'Spiritual World' that cannot be perceived by our two limited eyes, we would be able to see this great struggle between the forces of darkness and the forces of the Light of Jesus Christ. Imagine for a moment that Israel was given one candle of light ( Truth of GOD ) and that the rest of the planet is in utter darkness, Israel through the centuries; through : Prophets, Apostles and many other wise men have been able to 'Spread' that light ( by the power of the Holy Spirit ) into almost every corner of this planet 'BUT' Satan has countered his attack and he has attempted to extinguish it throughout the centuries; in some countries of this planet he has almost succeeded in totally blotting it all out more so than in others ( countries ) 'YET' the Light of Jesus Christ ( The WORD of GOD ) continues to be spread, 'DESPITE' : great persecution, despite Communism, despite Islamic Terror, despite political correctness, the Light that began in Israel thousands of years ago 'CONTINUES' to spread like wildfire through the : dark valleys, the dark streets of this fallen planet. Our unholy adversary : The Prince of Darkness : Satan ( may GOD Rebuke him *) has unfortunately managed to deceive the vast majority of humanity who has ever lived. The Holy Bible 'REVEALS' to us that Light came into the world 'BUT' people loved the darkness more than the Light !!! ( John 3 : 19 )
This student of Bible Prophecy was going to write today's article about something else; 'BUT' as a student of Bible Prophecy he knows fully well that there is 'NO' greater endtimes sign than the rebirth of the state of Israel !!! As this student of Bible Prophecy scanned the news channels this month hardly any mention of Israel's Independence Celebration came up; what is even sadder is that even most Christian cable channels hardly mentioned this incredible moment that fulfilled one of the greatest Prophecies in all of Bible Prophecy : Isaiah 66 : 8 !!!
In May of 1948, Israel's Jews only had the Islamic Arabs and other non-Muslims as their enemies; 'TODAY' Israel's enemies seem to have multiplied the world over !!! Universities, Unions and several nations all over the world have joined the BDS movement ( BDS : Palestinian led movement of boycotting, divestment and sanctions against Israel*)
The truth is that 'ALL' Islamic Arab nations as well as Turkey and Iran are in 'NO' position to join the BDS movement that claims : 'freedom ,justice and equality' to the Palestinian people because these same people's and Islamic countries sure do 'NOT' give any or much to their own minority groups; it is 'NO' secret that most of Christianity is being wiped out of the Middle East and you don't see the United Nations calling it a 'Silent Holocaust.' The Biblical truth is that GOD Almighty did 'NOT' forsake Abraham's son : Ismael who is the father of most of the Arabs of today. The truth is that 95% of the geographic land of the Middle East today is controlled by Arabs and yet they they cry foul because Israel controls less than 5% of territory there !!!
To the : atheist, the unbeliever and the biblical illiterate; the rebirth of the State of Israel means nothing much; to these Israel is just another one of the more than 190+ sovereign nation-states on planet earth 'BUT' to you and me as students of Bible Prophecy; the rebirth of Israel in 1948 means that we are the last and final generation !!! Even if you are an unbeliever just let's take a 'step back' and ponder at it all; it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the Middle East is going to be the epicenter of World War III; ( and later Armageddon*) you can call it the 'War of Gog and Magog' or the invasion of Russia against Israel 'BUT' its all the same, unfortunately only another war can once and for all put all the Arab enemies of Israel on their knees; they most certainly have not learned their lesson nor are they happy with the outcome in 1948 and much less with the outcome in 1967 !!!
Satan has been trying to annihilate Israel and every Jew throughout the ages, long before he exploited the pagan Roman Emperor and his armies; Satan had already used others as these gentile empires rose and collapsed on the weight of their own sins and perversions, there seemed to be no shortage of other pagan gentile empires willing to do 'Satan's bidding' like the Spanish Empire and its unholy inquisitions, the Soviet Union and its Pogroms and who can forget Hitler and his gas chambers just to name a few !!! Recently UNESCO voted to condemn Israel's ongoing rule over East Jerusalem and it is no secret that Islamic countries are trying to use the UN to delegitimize the Israeli State since none of their over 47+ Islamic countries, armies or terrorist groups have been able to overthrow and defeat one of the smallest ethnic & religious groups on all of planet Earth !!! ( What a great embarrassment !!! ) This student of world history could give you an even bigger list of all the 'International Laws' that most Islamic countries are breaking; 'HYPOCRITES' telling Israel that they are breaking some 'International laws' when slavery is still a commonly accepted in various Islamic countries !!! In Islamic countries such as : Saudi Arabia and Dubai 'Christianity/Bibles are against the Law !!! In these two Islamic countries alone non-natives are considered third class citizens even though they too practice Islam !!!
( Islamic Pakistanis, Philipinos, Islamic Indians are allowed to these countries 'BUT' getting out is a very different thing !!! )
Today many are 'questioning' Israel's right to exist; 'EVEN' some Jews like : Noam Chomsky, ILan Pappe and other 'Judases' of Israel who are telling the world that the State of Israel has no right to exist 'EVEN' after almost half of the Jewish population was decimated during World War II. According to the Holy Bible, Israel is thee 'ONLY' nation that has true legitimacy before the Creator of this entire Universe !!! Self hating Jews like Noam Chomsky and ILan Pappe would like you to believe that Israel is like South Africa of the 1970's, these two are quick to point out the faults of the Israeli government 'BUT' they themselves 'Don't' offer any true solutions to the ever growing Anti-Semitic Spirit and Unholy Movement spreading throughout the world. Yes, Israel was born by the modern sword of bullets, there will always be 'collateral damage' in any prolonged military conflict ; it's easy for someone like Noam Chomsky to criticize the government and policies of the State of Israel in a very comfortable recliner at MIT with an automatic heater and temperature controller 'BUT' its a different reality when you have a handful of Arab nations and their terrorist guerrilla groups trying to annihilate you at any chance that they can get !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy is 'NOT' here to demonize all Arabs or all Muslims, it is true that some Muslims and some Arabs do not seek the destruction of Israel nor of its Jewish population 'BUT' the ever present reality is that a very great and high percentage of Islamic men in particular have been brainwashed by their religious leaders into believing that the existence of Israel is the root cause of most of their domestic problems. The truth is that 'MOST' Arab-Islamic nations that surround Israel have been looted by their own totalitarian leaders who amass the oil fortunes for themselves and don't re-invest it in their own economies and their own people !!!
Sadly, it appears that with each anniversary of the rebirth of Israel too many believers seemed to have stopped 'Watching and Praying' for the 'Blessed Hope.' It should be the other way around, with each passing year it all gets closer to the fulfillment of the fullness & completion of the 'times of the gentiles' & the beginning of the 70th Week of Daniel !!! With each passing May 14, we should all get more and more excited knowing that Israel has 'Ripened' and 'Blossomed' like the fig tree !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy 'REMINDS' everyone that Israel's greatest enemy has 'NOT' been Arab Muslims. The factual and historical numbers clearly reveal to us that since 1860 some 23,320 Jewish men and women have died defending the land of Israel and since the 1948 war of independence Islamic terrorists have claimed the lives of 2,477 Israeli Jews. While these numbers are heartbreaking, the Islamic people's are nowhere near the numbers of Jews that the Roman's killed ( 1,000,000+ Josephus ) and Hitler's Nazi Germany with some 5,000,000 Jews !!! This student of Bible Prophecy knows history and he knows that the Western 4th Beast ( power ) will once again rise to become thee greatest enemy of the Jewish people and of the state of Israel in 'ALL' of human history !!!
The purpose and destiny of Israel and its Jewish people is perfectly pictured in the symbolism of REVELATION 12; the : past, present and future of Israel is majestically described in Revelation 12 !!! The 'Woman of Revelation 12' symbolizes none other than the nation of Israel that gives birth not only to the long promised Jewish Messiah but also to thee only true SAVIOR of those who dwell on this fallen planet : earth !!! The Dragon is none other than Satan who has tried since day one to thwart the DESTINY of this unique woman ( Nation of Israel*) who is to give birth to a child that 'SHALL' end up ruling the nations of this planet from Jerusalem one day !!!
Anyone who has ever studied the history of this planet knows fully well that virtually 'ALL' the nations of this fallen planet have has their own war of independence, the history of most of the nations on earth is full of violence and death. Some of the Palestinian's would like the world to believe that Israel is comparable to South Africa Apartheid 'BUT' the hypocrites fail to see the great persecution that they themselves do to the small christian minorities that still exist throughout their own countries and territories. Turkey claims Israel is 'racist' yet Turkey wants everyone to forget what they did to one and a half million Armenians ( 1.5 million ) not too long ago !!!
In conclusion, Israel has every right to exist more so even than all the other 190+ nations states on planet Earth !!! Satan and his armies of fallen angels and demons have managed to turn most of the world opinion against Israel. We are indeed in the middle of an ongoing 'Spiritual War' that has yet to be finalized on this planet Earth. According to the Prophecies of : Daniel, Zechariah, Ezekiel and Revelation; Israel is 'YET' to pass through its 'Darkest Hour.' Satan is going to raise up someone even more demonic than Adolph Hitler; evil is not always manifested in an Islamic Jihadi garb, sometimes Western men like the : Roman Caesars and their Generals as well as the German Nazi's have taught us that evil sometimes comes all dressed up in the latest uniforms and professional attire. This student of Bible Prophecy is 'NOT' concerned by no 'Islamic Mahdi' this 'Watchman on the Wall' is on the watch for someone who is coming with a 'Suit and a Tie' to 'DECEIVE' my Jewish friends as 'NO' one else has ever managed throughout human history !!! Some argue that it is the 'Suit that makes the Man' while others argue that it is the 'Man that Makes the Suit' in the case of the 'Son of Perdition' he will use 'Peaceful' and deceptive looks to deceive and double-cross Israel and its Jews like no other man has ever done in all of human history !!!
In a 'Perfect World' men would not kill one another and death would be non-existent 'BUT' because we all live in a 'Fallen Planet' that rebelled against our Holy Creator 'war, disease, death and many other human sufferings' are a fact of life on this 'Rebel Planet.' John Lennon got it all wrong in 'Imagine' Lennon presupposed that if we had no religion that men would automatically 'Love & Understand' one another; Lennon failed to study the societies such as Communist China and the atheist Soviet Union; these two were officially atheistic and yet they had no problem killing millions of their own comrades through government sanctioned famines and persecutions !!! Lennon erroneously believed that religion is the root of all evil; he failed to study that the problem is deeply rooted in men's hearts, 'Fallen Man' is intrinsically evil and 'ONLY' through the 'Power' of the Holy Spirit can men be set free !!!
By : Mario Romano. Yes, Israel is 'NOT' a perfect nation 'BUT' as a 'NEUTRAL' observer of history and human nature; this sinner saved by thee 'Blood of the King of the Jews : JESUS CHRIST; knows that the Islamic countries surrounding Israel are even 'MORE' : unjust, messed up, corrupt than 'Democratic' Israel is !!! The blunt truth is that Muslims are killing Muslims all over the Middle East and all without Israel being one bit involved !!! Very obviously, Satan and his fallen angels have perfected their 'DECEPTION' all over the world and have succeeded in deceiving most of the nations of this planet that Israel's existence and its control of Jerusalem threatens world peace; when it's their Islamic Jihad that has millions of Muslims running out of their own Islamic countries into Europe and anywhere else and in the process Islamic terrorism is exported there too !!! This planet is home to some 47+ Islamic nations who always vote against Israel in the United Nations, this planet does 'NOT' need another Islamic Capital in East Jerusalem !!!
