MIDDLE EAST ON A KNIFE EDGE:
That was recently one of the head lines in one of our main daily Newspapers after the assassination of the Moslem spiritual leader, Sjeg Ahmed Jassin, leader of Hamas in Palestine. It was a good head line to catch the eye of the public, and to sum up the situation in Palestine.
But what it did not say was that that has been the situation there for a long time already. Our people live only for the moment and from day to day, and they live only in the visible and the events of the day They do not realise that there are factors at work with an invisible origin and that have been ordained long ago.
We live in the end of the age. It is harvest time and the time of accounting according to the Bible. Harvest time is also the time of reaping and the time of maturity; and the time of reaping what we have sown. Very few people also realise that in the beginning two kinds of seed were sown, and by two different sowers. The one was the Son of Man, and the other was that wicked one (the devil) (Matthew 13:37-39).
The struggle has been on since the beginning of man, but now we have come to the time when the plants are nearly ripe. According to the Bible it will only be at the time of harvest, and only the angels of God will be able to tell the difference and then separate the two. They will then gather the good seed into God’s barn (His Kingdom). That will be the wheat. The bad seed, the tares, will be bound in bundles to be burned. (Matthew 13:30).
THE WISE WILL UNDERSTAND:
The same as in the days of Noah, there are two kinds of people on earth today - those who heeded the warnings of God, and those who did not. For those who refused to listen it did not matter, regardless of how serious or timely the warnings were, they just carried on, regardless. We take the case of Iraq for example.
We in This Series, and others, have warned time and again that we must look deeper than the surface only. The war in Iraq has deeper roots than just the visible. It is clear by now that President Bush found no weapons of mass destruction there and also could not prove beyond a doubt that Sadam Hussein was one of the chief supporters of Bin Laden orAl-Qaida. Now after a year the situation in Iraq is more confused than ever. The USA is deeper in debt than before, and her armed forces are exhausted. The vote is turning against Mr Bush and it is becoming more and more possible that he is going to lose the presidential election.
That is the purpose of Bin-Laden. At the same time he succeeded through the bombs in Spain, to swing the votes of the Spanish opposition which is against the Spanish support of the USA in Iraq, to win the recent election. The new prime minister elect in Spain promised to withdraw the Spanish troops from Iraq. World opinion is busy tuming against the USA. Mr Tony Blair is also losing his popularity fast in Great Britain. As I mentioned in earlier editions of World Affairs, it could quite possibly be that Mr George W. Bush will be the last white conservative president of the USA elected by a majority of White Anglo-Saxon Germanic voters. America has always been the anchor and bastion of the Christian faith in the world. If the Bush Government comes to a fall it could be the end of such a guarantee.
The west, the bearers and guardians of the Christian Faith, are in a sorrowful backslidden state already. That means that like in the days of Israel in the Bible that the heathen have always come to a state of supremacy when Israel departed from the ways of the Living God. This also happened in the late seventh century of Christendom when the Christians had become estranged from their original faith in the Risen Christ, that Mohammedanism overran the then Christian World and even penetrated as far as the heart of Europe. It is when the body is neglected and given over to its passions and lusts, that all kinds of ailments and diseases creep in. Likewise today Islam has penetrated the west to such an extent, that it has begun to demand its own schools. You hear them say more and more: “We are going to take over the West.” We will be amazed and astounded when we discover how many of our old and established industries and commerce are already owned by the East. Where does it come from?
TREES HAVE ROOTS:
A tree does not consist of only branches and leaves. It also has roots, the invisible, deep under the ground. In like manner the struggle between Ishmael and Isaac also comes from far, from the deep past. The roots of a tree are also very complicated and sometimes intricately interwoven. If you really want to know the tree you must also understand its root system. You will also know the tree by its fruit. In the same way we must know the background of the Middle East.
We must realise that it is there where mankind has its origin, and that it is also there where it will also have its destination on earth eventually. It is in that area where the first Adam gave his first steps on earth, and it is also there where the second Adam when He returns to earth will first put down His feet on the Mount of Olives and make it split in two. (Zechariah 14:40).
It is also there where the Battle of Armageddon will take place. It is then and also there where the Lord and His angels will come to the rescue of His elect when he comes to shorten the days. When we make a quick survey of the course of current events, we see that the world is hastening towards that day fast. Conditions in the middle east and the rest of the world for that matter, cannot last much longer as they are. The situation between Jew and Arab is near breaking point.
The core of the matter is, as I have stated repeatedly by now, that both of them lay claim to an area that does not belong to either of them.
God promised this area on oath to Abraham and his descendants as an everlasling possession (Genesis 13:15, 15:18 and many other related Scriptures). The true descendants of Abraham through Isaac are found in the Western Nations. They are completely unaware of their identity and therefore of their inheritance. A false Israel,. the Jew of today, claims for himself that inheritance and uses the true Israel, the West, to do his dirty work for him. This is the heart and the core of the situation in Iraq and the Middle East and the whole world.
A HIGH CALLING:
But God has not destined man to only have an earthly existence. He created him an exalted being in His own image to be His sons and daughters among whom He wanted to come and live and be their Father. But the evil one, the devil, came along and also sowed his seed on earth. Now we live in harvest time when the two seeds are going to be separated from one another. This is the whole present issue at stake, and which we must understand. A large part of the strategy of the devil at this time is that he is putting the seed that God planted to bear His image, to be His representatives, to sleep and to strike them with blindness. With the first judgment, the Flood. it was only Noah who was awake, who heard the voice of God, and did what God commanded him.
Now before the second judgment, the judgment by fire, it is the same again. There are many false voices, also among the preachers of the Gospel. They are supposed to be those who should sound the alarm and give the true warning. But instead of doing that, they are sounding a false alarm. To those who will not hear in any case, it does not really matter, but to those who are serious about the future, it is of the utmost and eternal importance. For that reason our Lord Jesus gave us a very special warning to take heed that we be not deceived. Listen:
"Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying. I am Christ: and shall deceive many. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. For there shall arise false Christs. and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” - (Matthew 24:4, 11,24).
We are living now within that very time of deceit and the utmost danger, and we are fast asleep. Be very solemnly warned!!
Then there is another dark threatening cloud on the horizon which is seldom mentioned, and that is China, Here is a giant that is preparing on the quiet to play a prodigious role in this end time judgment. Also do not allow yourself to be deceived by thinking that Russia has lost its spark. We do not hear a thing about what is really happening there. But according to the prophets Russia, China, the Arab world and Africa will be the last satanic combination that will move against the true Israel of God (the full descendants of all 12 Tribes) among whom the White Nations of the West will be the most important, to finally wipe them out to make it impossible for Jesus the Christ to return to this earth to take over the throne of His father David and be King over the House of Jacob (Literal Israel) and rule over his earth forever. (Luke 1:31-33; Daniel 2:35,44).
GLORIFIED WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE:
If you understand this Message which we are proclaiming, you will realise that we cannot take up the time in which we live lightly. God's Word gives us ample warning. Our Lord Jesus did not go through the agony of the Cross for naught. Those who will live and reign with Him in His Eternal Kingdom which He is coming to set up, will have to be holy and without spot or wrinkle like Himself. Please read for sure Philippians 3:20, 21; Romans 8:23, 29, 30; I John 11:3; Psalm 17:15; Revelation 17:14. How is it with you, dear reader? Those who read these readings of mine with genuine attention and total surrender, are among those who “are called, and chosen, and faithful” already. Come, let us "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints".
