What makes a nation great? Some people might say that military strength is the key to greatness, but that just means there is a large defense budget. Is it humanitarian efforts that make a nation great? That reflects the heart of the people, but that's not greatness. How about how a nation treats Israel? There …

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This week's newsletter marks the mid-point in the year 2016. Where has the time gone? 

We have seen an exponential growth in the prophetic events being either fulfilled or in the process of being fulfilled just since January. One need only look to Israel (God's prophetic timepiece) to see this. We are seeing plans rapidly unfold to build a third temple. This temple is spoken of in many places in The Word of God. It is not ordered nor ordained by God Almight for His use, but is a prophetic marker that should make ever Believer sit up and take notice.

The eucumenical movement is rapidly increasing and being embraced by all denominational churches in the Western world, as well as non-denominational churches. This is a great cause for concern as it is the harbinger of a one world religion spoken of also by the prophets, by Jesus Himself, and by several books of the New Testament. 

Remember that we are told by Jesus, "And when you see these things come to pass, look up for your redemption draweth nigh." We are told not to fear. It's hard, in our flesh, not to be fearful. But, in the power of the Holy Spirit, we allow God to dwell strongly within our lives each and every day so that we are preparing spiritually as well as physically for those things we might see. No man knows the hour these things take place. But we are told not to let any man deceive us. This means be in prayer, in God's Word, and abide in Him. 

Please join with us in praying for our persecuted brethren (who are a part of the Ekklesia) all over the world. Middle Eastern Christians are being slaughtered and no help from man comes. Please pray for these precious souls. Pray that eyes and ears are opened to see and hear what the Spirit of the Living God is telling us in these days. 

And finally, please keep Jerusalem in your prayers and all the people in that region that they would have the scales removed from their eyes and see The Messiah.

May the Lord bless you and keep you in all your ways. May He look upon you and be gracious to you. May He lift up His Countenance upon you and give you peace as only He can give. 


Watch! Pray! Occupy!
