Russia and US agree to hold Syria conference

Russia and US agree to hold Syria conference

In the News

By Craig C. White

The battle to oust Syrian President Assad rages on. Or perhaps I should say that the battle to take over Syria by the Muslim Brotherhood rages on. At this point people are reaching the consensus that the Rebels will eventually overtake the Syrian army. The key to victory is a capture of the seat of power in Damascus. However, rebel fighters say that they do not have the military might to take Damascus. Turkey has deployed many troops and heavy artillery along the Syrian border. NATO has deployed several Patriot missile batteries as well. The missiles are maned by 400 US soldiers. It looks like foreign military force will be brought to bear at some point.

Russia supports Syria’s President Assad. The US wants Assad to go. Because Syria’s fate looks bleak, Russia is willing to talk. US and Russia are seeking a diplomatic solution in Syria, but the rebels are not cooperating.

On the BBC:

Russia and US agree to hold Syria conference

According to Isaiah 17: 1 Damascus will be taken away from being a city. The destruction of Damascus is also prophesied in Jeremiah 49:24-27.

Israel's Beacon of Hope - book

Israel’s Beacon of Hope

Israel’s Beacon of Hope chronicles the trial of the nation of Israel during the Great Tribulation period. The last remaining Jews in Jerusalem are a symbol of hope for the restoration of nation of Israel to every Jew everywhere! Israel’s Beacon of Hope also includes commentary on the Psalm 83 war, and covers the return of Jesus Christ with vengeance in “the day of the Lord”! Happily Israel’s Beacon of Hope also explores the return of the Shekinah glory to Jerusalem, the return of all believing Jews throughout time to Israel, and life after the Tribulation. God’s covenant with Israel is everlasting (Gen 17:7).

There is a new religion coming!

There is a new religion coming!

delusion means “a straying from orthodoxy or piety”

By Craig C. White

  During the tribulation God will cause the rebellious to believe in a false religion. I think this new religion will encompass both Western and Eastern philosophies. We already have this sort of movement today.

2Th 2:11-12  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Because people have rejected God’s love for them, and have rejected God’s son sent to die for them (Joh 3:16), God will “send them strong delusion”. The word “delusion” means “a straying from orthodoxy or piety”. All people who have rejected the truth of salvation by Jesus’ blood will be persuaded of their own righteousness by another way. This of course is true of all false religions; but it reminds me mostly of “the emerging church”. The emerging church is an all-inclusive so called “Christian” movement that contains eastern philosophy and ritual; including yoga, meditation, and contemplative prayer as a means to personal holiness. It denounces bible teaching, and is being promoted by some of your favorite “Christian” leaders. Even without the influence of the miracle working antichrist, most people I know are eagerly awaiting this kind of religion (including most pastors). The fact that the “the emerging church” is on the move persuades me to think that Satan’s fall and the exposing of the antichrist is eminent. Don’t allow yourself to be deceived! I hope you believe the good news of salvation through Jesus’ blood shed for you.

Israel Air-Strike in Syria

Israel Air-Strike in Syria

In the news Friday May 3, 2013

By Craig C. White

Israel conducted an air-strike on a convoy carrying advanced long-range missiles near a weapons research centre in Jamraya Syria. Jamraya is a small village with a population of 1,500 located 5 miles North West of Damascus. Jamraya houses military headquarters and facilities.

Israel bombed the convoy in order to prevent the Syrian Army from transferring advanced weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Hezbollah supports Syria’s President Assad. Hezbollah is fighting in Syria today against the rebel forces. The Hezbollah troops fighting in Syria are primarily from Iran and Sudan. Hezbollah has been using Lebanon as a headquarters and training ground.

The Syrian government is trying to transfer advanced weapons into Lebanon to preserve them in case Damascus falls. Syria has a colossal advanced weapons store. These weapons have been gathered over the past decades primarily for use on Israel.

If you will remember Israel bombed another convoy carrying missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon on the Syria-Lebanon Border in January 2013. This is nothing new. Israel has said that its only concern is to prevent advanced weapons being handed over to Hezbollah. That statement is true. Israel has no intentions of escalating their involvement in Syria.

By the way, you shouldn’t be impressed with US President Barack Obama’s seeming support for Israel in this case. Obama and the US are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria. The Muslim Brotherhood are in fact the worst of the players in Syria today.  Bombing Hezbollah works to the Muslim Brotherhood’s advantage.

From a bible prophecy point of view, I would look for the Turkish army to come down from the Turkey-Syria border to destroy Damascus.

The truth about Hell

The truth about Hell

Hell is full of Warm Worms.

By Craig C. White, contribution by Clark Callear

Clark Callear, my brother in the Lord, and tender of Last Day Bible Prophecy, recently sent me his brief commentary on the truth about hell. Clark wrote, “It appears that “the lowest hell” (bottomless pit of hell; Sheol) is temporary, but the “lake of fire” is permanent.” Clark also states, “I believe the bottomless pit (aka: hell, hades, Sheol, the abyss) is a temporary holding cell where one’s soul waits for God’s final judgment.” He uses the Psalm 86:13 as a reference.

Psa 86:13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

I agree that hell is two places; one temporary grave for the wicked soul, and one everlasting harbor of torment for both body and soul. However the truth about hell is that no mortal soul will escape hell (or Sheol) once they are there. Every soul who enters hell will be thrown into the lake of fire (body and soul). That being said, Jesus did escape hell. Psalm 83 describes Christ’s deliverance from hell as he suffered death for us. It does not describe an individual’s ability to escape hell once he discovers himself there.

God delivered Jesus from hell because he was holy and without sin. The wages of sin is death. It was impossible for hell to hold Jesus permanently.

Act 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

So what is the truth about hell? Can a person be saved out of hell? Only if he is as holy as God. I believe that the truth about hell is that once you are there you are destined for everlasting punishment.

What then is the truth about hell? How is hell temporary? It is only temporary as a “holding cell” as Clark writes in his commentary. You may consider hell (the grave) as a jail cell. After your day in court you will be thrown into prison (the lake of fire) forever. Hades and Gehenna are both translated as “hell” in the English Bible. Hades is the temporary grave and Gehenna (the lake of fire) is the permanent place of eternal punishment. After the Day of Judgment, Hades (or the grave) is thrown in its entirety into Gehenna.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell (that’s hades) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

About worms:

Clark also makes the observation that Jesus called the part of a person that exists forever in the lake of fire a “worm”. I think of this as the smallest possible entity, even smaller than germ; the part of a person that says “I” or “me”. Clark references Mark 9:44.

Mark 9:44: “And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

I don’t think that Jesus is referring to a soul as a worm. Instead, he is describing the ongoing process of eternal damnation. It is like the decay of the body, as maggots eat your flesh until you are consumed. Only in the lake of fire, the maggots keep eating forever. The same can be said for fire. In the lake of fire, your body will be burned but not consumed, or your body will be continually consumed forever.

More about worms:

Psalm 22 prophecies Jesus’ mistreatment and disdain that he suffered at the hands of men. Jesus counts himself to be treated as if he were a worm and not a man. A worm (maggot) is worth little and a lowly creature that lives in the dirt and eats waste. A man on the other hand is created in God’s image. A man has eternal value.

Psa 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Hades and Gehenna are both translated as “hell” in the English Bible. The truth about hell is that both places are to be avoided. That is only done by accepting the blood sacrifice that Jesus gave on the cross; His life, paying the price of our sin.
