End Time Bed Time stories - eBook

What is really going on in the world? Will Al-Qaeda take Baghdad? Is all the fighting in the Middle East related? Why is Russia creating a Union? Has Egypt seen the last of the Muslim Brotherhood? What is the Pope up to? Will the Turkey-Israeli reconciliation agreement have a seven year term?

Where is all of this headed?

ISIS has declared itself as the head of a new Islamic Caliphate. A Caliphate is a Muslim empire ruled by one person. A Caliph is the political and religious ruler of an Islamic empire.

Judging from bible prophecy it seems that Islam will succeed in growing its new Caliphate but I don’t think that ISIS will remain as its head. I think that ISIS’ major role in end time bible prophecy is to slaughter its own countrymen in the Nineveh Province of northern Iraq and then to be destroyed by its neighbors.

How will the Antichrist be revealed? Here is an interesting observation: Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is planning to lead a Muslim call to worship in Turkey in early August 2014. He will be conducting the first service converting an ancient Christian temple into a Muslim mosque. First this is a declaration that Islam will conquer Christianity. Second Prime Minister Erdogan is not a Muslim cleric. Keep your eyes open for some sort of special effects during this religious service. Also look for Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan to declare himself as god. This service could even be the event that reveals the Antichrist to the world and heralds the Rapture of the Church! I am not kidding!

The sun has been shining high in the sky since Jesus Christ was on earth 2000 years ago. The light of Jesus Christ’s gospel has been shining! God’s people have had the opportunity to preach God’s word to every nation. My friends the sun is now low in the dusk sky. It’s bed time! The night comes, when no man can work (John 9:4). It is High Time to Awake, and also to repent, to believe, to be resurrected, and to be caught up into heaven to meet Jesus!

It’s getting late. You had better start reading!

Russia in End Times Prophecy

From my house I can’t see Russia!

By Craig C. White

Somehow the Russian place in bible prophecy is compelling. But too often we see bears where there are none. We also overlook the bears that are there. The Russian bear will have its place in end times prophecy, but it probably isn’t what you thought. Hey, I see a bear! Where? Over there!

Eze 38:1-2 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

I don’t see Russia in Ezekiel 38 (Gog and Magog). That view came about by transcribing “chief” (or the Hebrew “rosh”) to mean Russia. Rosh means first or primary. Transposing Hebrew words into English phonetic equivalents is not proper interpretive technique, and is not used elsewhere. The “chief prince” in Ezekiel 38:2 is the primary governor (or Prime Minister) of Turkey. Gog is the land of modern Turkey and Magog is its ruler or at least its chief founder.

I do see Russia in Daniel chapter 7. The nation that is obviously symbolized by a bear is Russia. For the last one hundred years prophecy scholars have identified the bear in the prophecy of Daniel 7 as Russia.

Dan 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

The bear has three ribs in its mouth. I think the three ribs are yet to come. But let me alert you!  We are already seeing signs of them! They are in (or among) the teeth like a bit. They exist together at the same time. They speak to the bear all at once. They may be either Russian political or military leaders or perhaps they are nations in the new Russian Union. I think the bear is devouring (or eating) territory. I think the Russian bear is raised up along its southwestern border to bring back under its authority (and ultimately into the fold of the revived Roman Empire) the following countries: Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan all north of the Caucasus Mountains; also Belarus, Ukraine, and Moldova all west of the Ural Mountains. Most people will tell you that the Roman Empire didn’t extend into Russia, but the best scholarship says that it reached as far as the western slopes of the Ural Mountains. In 2008 Russia tested its ability to take back the former Soviet territory of Georgia.

PS: Russia is now ready for war to protect itself from any spillover from the Syrian conflict.

Who is the idol shepherd?

Who is the idol shepherd?

By Craig C. White

I think that the idol shepherd in Zechariah 11:16-17 is an Israeli ruler put in charge of the nation of Israel during the Tribulation period. He will give away his country and its security. During the Tribulation period Israel will be subject to the next world empire. There is some precedent for assigning a new ruler in Israel when under the authority of a world empire. Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar fired King Jehoiachin (aka Jeconiah or Coniah; 2Ki 24:15) and assigned Zedekiah to take over as king of Israel during the Babylonian captivity. ‎ Zedekiah did evil in God’s site (2 Kings 24:19, 20; Jer. 52:2, 3).

Lately the Palestinian peace process negotiators have been lamenting that they aren’t dealing with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. If you will remember Ehud Barak removed Israeli settlers from southern Lebanon. He is now serving as Deputy Prime Minister. The Palestinian authority is looking for an Israeli ruler who will hand them Israel’s land and sovereignty.

Several Israeli Prime Ministers have also given away land for peace. In 1995 Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin gave full control of Bethlehem and other west bank areas to the Palestinian Authority. Rabin was assassinated in November 1995.

I am also reminded of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon who orchestrated Israel’s unilateral disengagement of the Gaza strip in 2005. Sharon turned over the Gaza strip to the Palestinian authority. Ariel Sharon died on Jan. 11, 2014 after suffering a stroke and falling into a coma in 2006.

It could very well be that Ehud Barak will be the idol shepherd spoken of by Zechariah. Of course it could be another Israeli ruler. Perhaps he will be thrust into power by the Antichrist or by world powers. Whoever this Israeli leader is he will give away the sovereignty and land of Israel.

If I were you I wouldn’t wait to see if Ehud Barak regains power in Israel. This could happen after Church age believers are taken into heaven at the Rapture. That would mean that you must endure the terrible time of Satan’s influence and God’s wrath on earth called the Tribulation. The Church is saved from this terrible period. Call on the name of Jesus Christ and be saved now while there is still time!

Rom 10:12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Very interesting to read and hard to stop. – Alexandria

Peace Peace

Will Israel peace treaty mark the beginning of the Tribulation?

By Craig C. White

Just before the people of Israel entered into the land that God prepared for them God had a talk with Moses. God told Moses to tell the people how they ought to behave while they are in the land. God started by giving the people of Israel the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1). Thou shalt not serve idols, remember to keep the Sabbath, thou shalt not kill, and so on. One of the last things that God told the people is that they should not make agreements with the inhabitants of the land. The people of Israel should not make allowances for their gods. They should not make treaties with their enemies that they should live in the land with them. God said that making a treaty with their enemies would be a trap that they would be caught in. God repeated this warning for emphasize (Exodus 34:12)!

Exodus 23:32-33  Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.  33  They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Today Israel is feverishly working to make a treaty with the Palestinian Authority that the Palestinian people should have a place for their god and that they should live in the land with the Israelis. The peace accord aims to create a sovereign Palestinian nation inside of the land of Israel.

Israel has already made allowances for the Palestinians to share their land. About one third of the nation of Israel is occupied and controlled by the Palestinian Authority. The current peace treaty or security agreement will add further territories to Palestinian control and worse it will give all or portions of the old city of east Jerusalem over to the Palestinian Authority. Today the temple mount in east Jerusalem is under the authority of the Islamic Waqf. The Islamic Waqf is a Muslim organization that acquires property to use for charitable causes; all in the name of serving Allah. The Islamic Waqf has severely restricted the Israeli use of the temple mount.

Israel Map: The shaded gray areas show the Palestinian occupied areas. In the south the Negev is a harsh desert and mountainous region. The Negev accounts for almost half of the land mass of the nation of Israel. It has a population of only 200,000.

The land of Israel today does not include the entire portion of land that God gave to Abraham. God gave Israel all of the land from the Nile River to the Euphrates River.

Genesis 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

At the same time that God told Moses not to make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land; God also restricted the geographic area that the Jewish people should first inhabit. The modern day borders of Israel represent that geographic area.

Exodus 23:30-31  By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.  31  And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

Israel is no ordinary nation. Likewise the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is no ordinary peace treaty. As you would imagine there are arbiters on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have the final say in negotiations. Netanyahu has expressed his support for the creation of a Palestinian state but has voiced concerns about insuring the safety of the Jewish people. Netanyahu has appointed veteran lawyer Isaac Molho as his chief negotiator. Another key figure in the negotiations is Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni. Ms. Livni has been a harsh critic of Netanyahu. She is a staunch proponent for creating a Palestinian state in Israel. The exceptional part of these negotiations is that they include international security provisions. In other words Israel will have to agree to rely on US, UN, and perhaps other international military forces to ensure peace in the dual state. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is smack dab in the middle of it all. There seems always to be encumbrances to these negotiations but all parties involved are pushing for a deal within the next two years. A date of April 2014 has been set for the end of the current round of negotiations.

Zechariah 11:16 tells us that God will raise up a rotten ruler in Israel who will not look out for the best interest of his people. He is called the idol shepherd. I think that he will be instrumental in allowing Israel to fall into this trap. Indeed Ezekiel 34:2-8 identifies Israel as having many idol shepherds. Perhaps some of these negotiators are among Israel’s idol shepherds or perhaps we are still looking for Israel’s Idol Shepherd to appear since some of Israel’s leaders still demonstrate concern for their nation. Please read my commentary titled “Woe to the Idol Shepherd” in my eBook “Israel’s Beacon of Hope”.

At any rate peace and security for Israel is the cry of the day. The problem is that the bible says that when the rulers of Israel say “peace and security” that is when they are all in big trouble.

1Thessalonians below was written to the church at Thessalonica. So it was written to Christians both Jew and gentile. While it certainly concerns the Jews it was not addressed directly to the nation of Israel. My point is that it is addressed to Christians today.

1Thessalonians 5:1-9  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  5  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.  6  Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.  7  For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.  8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.  9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

The verses above say that Israel will be surprised when the day of God’s judgment comes. They will expect peace but will receive persecution. In fact during the same time that God judges Israel he will also judge the entire world. So the unbelieving world will also be caught unaware of the coming disaster.

Isaiah 28:22  Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

1 Thessalonians chapter 5 goes on to say that believers in Jesus Christ will not be surprised but that they will see the disaster coming. Verse 9 states that Christians will not suffer God’s judgment but that they will be saved from it. This brings up the concept of the Rapture of the Church. I only want to say that the Rapture (or the taking away into heaven) of Christians may happen before Israel signs their peace treaty. But there is more to consider.

The Antichrist is a political ruler who will become the head of a coming world empire. I think that he will engage in several military conquests; even invading Israel, and that at some point he will make a peace agreement with Israel. In Daniel 9:27 below, the Antichrist will make a peace treaty with the many for seven years. This marks the seven year Tribulation period of Israel. The many may refer to the majority of citizens of Israel or it may refer to many nations. In either case the agreement obviously concerns Israel. At some point Israel has resumed offering daily animal sacrifice. That means that at some point they have built a new temple. After three and a half years the Antichrist causes the sacrifices to stop. The Antichrist makes the temple to become unclean until the suffering of the nation of Israel ends. This last three and a half year period is called Jerusalem’s “Great Tribulation” (Mat 24:21).

Daniel 9:27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Why am I telling you this? I am pointing out that Israel is working on a peace treaty with the Palestinians which also involve world powers. Plus the Antichrist will one day make a treaty with Israel. Are they the same treaty? I don’t know. I am going to give you the short answer. I think that Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is quite possibly the Antichrist (read my commentary titled “Erdogan is the Antichrist!” in my eBook “Halfway to Armageddon”). If not then I think that the Antichrist will be another Turkish Prime Minister. If Erdogan or somebody else that meets the criteria of the Antichrist is not involved in the signing of Israel’s Palestinian peace treaty then it does not mark the beginning of the Tribulation period. It is important to remember that the treaty that marks the beginning of the Tribulation requires the participation of the Antichrist. It becomes more urgent since Israel may indeed enter into a peace agreement within the next couple of years. Perhaps Israel will sign a separate peace agreement with the Palestinians. Perhaps the hostilities of the Antichrist will finally push an international security agreement to be finalized in Israel. Perhaps the Church will be taken away before any treaty is signed. Whatever happens we all should know that an agreement to live with Israel’s enemies is a trap!

Prophecy @ 4 Kings!

prophecyProphecy @ 4 Kings!

Four kings will conspire to create the New World Order!

By Craig C. White

Four beasts are described in the prophecy of Daniel Chapter 7. Beasts in bible prophecy represent gentile kingdoms. The kingdoms however are not as important to recognize as are their 4 KINGS! Four kings will conspire to create the final gentile world empire!

Daniel 7:15-17  I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.  16  I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.  17  These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

Our attention is drawn to the four kings not the four kingdoms. Listen up folks! The four kings will be instrumental in creating the fourth beast! These persons will be easily identifiable in their positions over each of the four beasts and their efforts to create a one world government. Today Tony Blair the former Prime Minister of England is playing a major role in the effort to form a one world government. Prince Charles of England is also looked to among the one world government movement. He happens to be the head figure in all the Masonic Order, which unites the entire world. In Russia Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Medvedev (Russian meaning “bear”) are prime candidates for involvement in creating the one world government. If US President Barrack Obama becomes “Supreme Leader” of the leopard then put him on the list as well. The fourth king rules over the forth beast; he is the antichrist “the man of perdition”. Remember, the fourth beast arises after the third. The fourth beast reigns only a short time.
