"Bible Prophecy Moves Closer to Fulfillment"

Predicting the future was probably the last thing on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's mind in his speech before the U.S. Congress earlier this month.

But that's exactly what he did when he said, "Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand."

The Bible, which foretells Israel's entire history with stunning 100% accuracy, clearly says Israel will indeed stand alone in the end.

With one very notable exception--God.

Zechariah 12 details a period of time after the Jews are again inhabiting Jerusalem (fulfilled in 1967) and the return of the Messiah (still pending).

"...though all nations of the earth are gathered against it ...the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem" (Zechariah 12:3,8).
Got that? The LORD will defend them not the U.S.

Tuesday the U.S. administration "leaked" information that brings Zechariah's prophecy regarding the final World War one step closer:

"Israeli intelligence was eavesdropping on closed-door nuclear negotiations between the U.S.& Iran, then passing the classified information along to the U.S. Congress," says  The Wall Street Journal. 

Sadly, this story says more about this administration than it does about Israel, our closest ally in the region:

  • Obama failed to keep his promise to update Israel on the negotiations.
  • The U.S. Congress was also kept in the dark.
  • The administration is doing everything possible to undermine Israel...
  • ...and to paint Netanyahu in a negative light.
Iran's nuclear program poses an existential threat to Israel. This administration has made no attempt to keep Israel in the loop in regards to the progress (or lack thereof) in negotiations. Can anyone blame Israel if the allegations (which Israel emphatically denies) are true?

Remember, Israel is God's chosen instrument to demonstrate his faithfulness to the world. All of human history revolves around the Jews. To come against them is to come against God. (Genesis 12:1-3, 17:1-26, 22:15-18).

A wise man once said: "In Israel to be a realist you must believe in miracles." --David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister

"On that day the LORD will defend the people of Jerusalem, the weakest among them will be as mighty as King David! And the royal descendants will be like God, like the angel of the Lord who goes before them! For My plan is to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem" (Zechariah 12:8-9).

"The Ultimate Black Swan Event"

Let's face it gang, a "Black Swan" is not just another ugly duckling.

According to wikipedia: "The theory of Black Swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact."

For instance, 9/11. A terrorist attack on American soil definitely came as a surprise to most. The effects of that event are still reverberating 14 years later and seems so obviously preventable in hindsight.

Because it is assumed that all swans are white, a black swan is seen as being impossible.

Unfortunately, we live in a Black Swan world. Consider:

  • the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia that wiped out 250,000
  • the Fukashima nuclear meltdown/earthquake/tsunami
  • and Hurricane name a few
According to financial guru and ex-Marine Bob Moriarty, "There is a flock of black swans overhead, any of which could be catastrophic."

Moriarty, speaking in terms of a financial collapse, ISIS attack, or Middle East crisis, thinks it is only a matter of time before some calamity strikes.

And he's right. Sooner or later the mother of all Black Swan events is going to devastate the world and catch everyone by surprise. The Bible clearly predicts it.

"When the Son of Man returns, the world will be like the people were in Noah's day. In those days before the flood, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came to destroy them all.
"And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business--eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building--until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
"Yes, it will be 'business as usual' right up to the hour when the Son of Man returns." (Luke 17:26-30)
And later, Jesus warns,
"Watch out! Don't let Me find you living in careless ease and drunkenness, and filled with the worries of life. Don't let that day catch you unaware, as in a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep a constant watch. And pray that, if possible, you may escape these horrors and stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:34-36) 
 And there you have it--the ultimate Black Swan event.

To be caught by surprise  is so obviously preventable.

"Today is the day of salvation." (Hebrews 4:7)

"Do Only Idiots Believe the Bible?"

There are hundreds of books detailing the amazing evidence of the divine inspiration of the Bible.

The problem? Most people don't bother to read them.

In fact, according to,  "...few (of the Bible's detractors) have even read the Bible itself! Thus, many people tend to go along with the popular delusion that the Bible is full of mistakes and is no longer relevant to our modern world."

Fact: The Bible is not a single book but a library of books: 66 books written by 40 authors over a period of 2,000 years. And yet it is perfectly integrated.

Fact: "The Biblical authors claimed repeatedly (over 3,000 times) that they were transmitting the authoritative, infallible Word of God. These men were either telling the truth or they were lying or insane or both." 

Fact: The Bible is the most influential book ever written, a perennial bestseller, that contains the most perfect moral code ever devised.

Fact: The Bible is woven from Genesis to Revelation with prophecy, most of which (80%) has already been fulfilled with 100% accuracy. Over 300 prophecies were fulfilled by Christ Himself at His First Coming.

"There is no other book, ancient or modern, like this," writes Christian "The vague, and usually erroneous prophecies of people like Jeanne Dixon, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, and others like them are not in the same category at all, and neither are other religious books such as The Koran, The Confucian Analects, and similar religious writings."

"Only the Bible manifests the remarkable prophetic evidence, and it does so on such a tremendous scale as to render completely absurd any explanation other than divine revelation."

Fact: "The historical accuracy of the Scriptures is likewise in a class by itself." Archaeological evidence confirms much of the Biblical record.

Fact: Many scientific principles were recorded in the Bible centuries before science "discovered" them.

For instance, Isaiah 40:22 says the earth is round. At a time when science believed the earth was flat, Christopher Columbus bet his life the Scriptures were correct.

The Bible says a baby boy must be circumcised on the 8th day. Medical science has only recently discovered blood-clotting in a newborn reaches its peak guessed it, the 8th day.

The book of Leviticus is full of rules about cleanliness, food prep and isolating the sick. It took centuries for science to catch up. We could go on and on...but you get the idea.

Though many claim the Bible is full of errors, none so far has ever been demonstrated. Not in science, history, or any other subject.

Fact: The Bible contains "remarkable structural and mathematical patterns woven throughout its fabric, with an intricacy and symmetry incapable of explanation by chance or collusion."

So do only idiots believe the Bible? There are literally thousands of scientists who believe the Bible, including: Physicists like Newton, Faraday and Maxwell. For more, "Scientists Who Believe the Bible"

"Beware Apocalyptic, Genocidal Death Cult"

According to New York Times bestselling author and Middle East expert Joel Rosenberg, our biggest threat is not radical Islam.

It is "Apocalyptic Islam."  What's that, you ask?

A brand of Islam that both ISIS and Iran have in common.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran today is ruled by an apocalyptic, genocidal death cult," Rosenberg says. "So is the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL."

Though the former are Shia and the latter are Sunni, both believe:

  • the End of Days has come
  • their messiah (aka "Mahdi") is on his way
  • they need to speed things up
"Yet each has entirely different strategies to hasten his arrival or appearance on earth," Rosenberg contends.

  • ISIS wants to build a caliphate (Islamic government).
  • Iran wants to build The Bomb.
  • ISIS is committing genocide now.
  • Iran is preparing to commit genocide later.
Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an address to a joint session of the US Congress, outlined his opposition to the nuke deal currently on the table and made the same point:
"ISIS and Iran are battling each other to become rulers of the Middle East. The difference? ISIS uses butcher knives and Iran wants to use nukes."
The bottom line? Both hope to annihilate us. And if no one stops them--they will.

Netanyahu Recognizes Signs of Times

A wise man once said: "History has placed us at a crossroad...The peace of the world hangs in the balance. Standing up to Iran is not easy. Not standing up will lead to a nuclear nightmare." --Bibi Netanyahu
"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, that you and your descendants might live! Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey Him and commit yourself to Him, for He is your life" --Deuteronomy 30:19-20.
