Erdogan Calls on Muslims to Flood Jerusalem’s Iconic Mosque

In Psalm 83:4, 6 prophecy shows that Turkey (Edom) will participate with others in trying to obliterate Israel.  In conjunction with the Beast Power and a confederation of Middle Eastern nations, they will effectively overrun the state of Israel as they already want to do.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Muslims around the world to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem to protect the site’s Islamic identity.

“We, as Muslims, should be visiting Al-Quds more often,” Erdogan said, using the Arabic name for Jerusalem. “Each day that Jerusalem is under occupation is an insult to us.”

As many as 26,000 Turks visited the Temple Mount, or Noble Sanctuary, in 2016. However, Erdogan emphasised “hundreds of thousands” should be visiting the site, which is considered holy by Muslims. “[It] would be the greatest support to our brothers there,” he said.

Erdogan also said that permanent peace in the region would only be possible with a “fair solution to the Palestinian issue”.

The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Any time that we, as a nation, reject God and put our trust in man this below will happen and the result will be less than desirable – whether it’s Trump or Obama (1 Samuel 10:19). For more information learn why we should NOT vote for either one.

Claiming that he is spending his time “empowering an effective network of global activists,” former President Barack Obama told an audience in Milan, Italy today that “you get the politicians you deserve.”

Can Times Get Better in America Without a Major Crisis?

The US is headed down a path of destruction of its own making.  The lesson to be learned is that man’s ways ultimately do not work.  It is in times like those that are coming that people will learn that they need to turn back to God.

The U.S. is past the point of no return. Even though the system is stained with blood, it will not and it cannot self-correct. And certainly it will not through the political process…. It will have to totally collapse.

So to answer the original interrogative: Can times get better in America without a major crisis?

Not possible!

We must go through the fire to wipe the slate clean. I hope you are prepared.

The End of Western Civilization

When a society moves away from God and relies on its own power and abilities, it is the beginning of the end. The US, for this reason, is inevitably headed toward a prophetic conclusion.

It’s been said, correctly, that a civilization always collapses from within. World War 1, in 1914, signaled the start of the long collapse of Western Civilization. Of course, termites were already eating away at the foundations, with the writings of people like Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Karl Marx. It’s been on an accelerating downward path ever since, even though technology and science have been improving at a quantum pace. They are, however, like delayed action flywheels, operating on stored energy and accumulated capital.

Good Works – A Requirement for Salvation Part 2

 

Summary of Part 1

Works and Grace

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works

How do you find favor with God? How do you grow in grace? It is through works

Faith Without Works is Dead

Works demonstrate our faith; A Living faith is validated by works through acts of obedience to God’s law

Works are a Necessity to Get Into the Kingdom of God

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works the good works that we are to be zealous for

Works are not to end with the death and works of Jesus Christ.  He said that we would do even greater works than these will do.

So He admonished us to be about our work while He is away and that we should be careful to maintain good works.

Kings of the East Alliances Forming

Iran, known anciently as Persia and Elam, does not appear to be a part of the Kings of the East, but nonetheless get along with them (Isaiah 21:2) as they have in the past (ie the Medo-Persian empire). In Jeremiah 25:25 we see in the day of their punishment at the end-time they are mentioned separately from the kings of Russia (Media), ostensibly showing that they are not technically considered a part of the eastern conglomeration.

Russia recently said it would support Iran’s bid to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, an emerging economic and political alliance led by China. Its membership includes Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Last year, India and Pakistan also signed the memorandum of obligations and are expected to become full members sometime this year. The bloc has expanded into a military organization over the last few years and has run joint military exercises in the past.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Iran now fully fits the criteria for membership and that discussions on its bid to join will take place this summer.

What is especially notable about this alliance, however, is the fact that the U.S. was rejected from gaining observer status in 2004, which, as Newsweek reports, reinforces “the impression that its goal is to exist in opposition to Western political and military alliances.”

As the world is seemingly preparing for a third world war between NATO and the growing Eastern bloc, we are witnessing the strengthening of alliances as well as the switching of some very strategic ones.

Italy’s Former PM Renzi Re-elected

As populism was gaining momentum it was predicted that Italy would quit the EU and Euro after its referendum at the end of 2016.  It was pointed out why this was highly unlikely and now Italy has put the man that stepped down less than six months ago, back into power. Renzi is an ardent supporter of the EU, albeit ssone that is different than currently exist….

Former prime minister Matteo Renzi won the leadership of Italy’s ruling Democratic Party (PD) in a primary election Sunday, propelling him back to the forefront of the national political scene.

Renzi, 42, resigned as prime minister in December after Italians overwhelmingly rejected a constitutional referendum aimed at streamlining the parliamentary system.

“This is not the second half of the same match, it’s a new match,” he said in a victory speech. “This is the beginning of a completely new story.”

Rebel Catholic Group Defies Church, Ordains Woman Priest

While this may be considered acceptable behavior in the US, it is definitely not at the Vatican.  In the end, the False Prophet will have no qualms about the Beast Power subduing the US because it will see the Catholicism here as heretical and off-track.

An international group defiantly opposed to the Roman Catholic Church’s ban on women priests Sunday ordained its first woman Catholic priest in the 46 counties that make up the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte.

According to a news release about the Sunday ordination from the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests…. In the United States, it said, women priests serve in 65 “inclusive churches.” That includes women priests affiliated with the association and with a second allied group – Roman Catholic Women Priests – that has the same mission.

Most American Catholics say they’d like their church to ordain women. A Pew Research Poll in 2015 found that about six in 10 American Catholics said they favored allowing women to be Catholic priests.

But the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy has stood by its longtime prohibition against women becoming priests.

Not only that. In 2007, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, with the blessing of then-Pope Benedict XVI, decreed automatic excommunication against anyone “who attempts to confer a sacred order on a woman, and the woman who attempts to receive a sacred order.”
