Something To Watch
People are watching the world stage. Not only people in America, but people around the world are paying attention to world events. We have seen the rise of nuclear threats, Ishmael’s lineage decappitating believers in Yeshua / Jesus, and wars in Syria.
When the recent blood moons occurred, people were looking at scripture. Many wrote books on the blood moons and solar eclipses. When “nothing” happened after the blood moons, most people chalked up the events as “scare tactics “. But the blood moons always impact Israel and solar eclipses the nations. We have a full solar eclipse August 2017.
And look at Syria. Scripture tells us from thousands of years ago, Damascus is the “head” or capital of Syria.
Isaiah 7:8-9 KJV “For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.
 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah’s son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.”
Today, we see war in Syria among their own people. Believers know Damascus is going to be destroyed by God. Isaiah 17:1 KJV “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.”
And we see people fleeing Syria, just as scripture says.
Isaiah 17:13 KJV “The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.”
And Paul tells us in Galatians 1, when he was questioning why believers were believing false doctrines, that he went to the “heathen”. Where? Arabia and Damascus.
Galatians 1:15-18 KJV “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,
 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.”
Believers know Damascus is going to be destroyed no matter how much money, relief efforts or help nations give to Damascus. Why mention this?
We are in Jubilee. And Jubilee is happening for Israel this year and next. There is a “year” of jubilee this year. But there is also a jubilee for events. You see, in May 1948 Israel was reborn as a nation. Add 50 years and 1998 would have been a jubilee year. But we also know scripture talks of 70 years for living and preadventure 80 years for man. And 1948 + 70 years = 2018. Is something going to happen with Israel that only God can save her? Eventually, yes.
Not only that, in 1967 there were four main countries fighting against Israel in the 6 Day War from 6/5/1967 through 6/10/1967. The four countries were Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq.
Israel was fighting for her city Jerusalem where King David reigned and where Abraham was. We know God gave Israel the victory and Israel recaptured Jerusalem. Israel would own the land where the temple mount is but let Jordan administer the mosque that was on Israel’s land. And June 10, 2017 is the Jubilee of Jerusalem – 50 years in Israel’s possession as a reborn nation.
Why mention this? There are many reasons including the tour of President Trump in the Middle East, current events to watch and compare them with scripture, and we are in the counting of the Omer. The counting of the Omer is part of the feasts of the Lord as laid out in Leviticus 23:15 – 17.
The world has their “holidays” and God has his holy days aka holidays. Do you want the world’s or God’s? We have Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits the starting of the Counting the Omer which ends with the Feast of Weeks / Pentecost. Then we have the rest of the feasts. But the Counting of the Omer is 50 days. Omer is a grain of wheat. Believers are likened unto wheat in scripture. Jesus says he separates the wheat from the tares.
In scripture, the people would gather the wheat from the fields, bundle the wheat and tie them. Then grind two loaves of bread from the wheat. In Ephesians 2, Paul explains the two loaves represent Israel and Gentiles.
Ephesians 2:15 KJV “Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;”
The time of counting the Omer is a time to examine ourselves. It is a time to get “right” with God. Revelation 3 said Behold, Jesus was standing at the door and knocking. Jesus was not speaking to unbelievers here even though people use that verse for unbelievers. Jesus was speaking to the church, the last days church, the Laodiceans. Truly, the last days church is more concerned with money, wealth, numbers more so than the gospel of salvation, hell or sin.
Friends, the Counting of the Omer ends June 3rd and 4th with the Feast of Weeks, aka Pentecost. Why the 3rd and 4th? Because the day starts at sundown on God’s calendar. Remember the evening and the morning in Genesis?
Use the time of Counting the Omer to examine yourself, your relationship with the Lord and clean out any sin from your flesh. Bring your mind and body into subjection to the Lord God. And on June 3rd and 4th, celebrate Pentecost / the Feast of Weeks. Because now all true believers have the Holy Spirit inside them.
As we watch God line up events for the end, pray for Israel and America for repentance and protection. Pray for your country to repent and turn back to God. And most important, pray for yourself to be saved if you are not. If you want to be saved, select How To Get Saved from our menu above. Remember, it is not a prayer that saves you, it is a heart change and heart belief in Jesus / Yeshua and what he did on the cross for you and me. Until next time.
