I’ve got a question for you today, are you “WATCHING" certain things that are happening on the world scene that may affect your life and the lives of millions of others as well?
Do you know that this is an instruction (or a command) from Jesus Christ? Matthew 24:42 “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
After giving His disciples several things to look for as we approach the “sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world.” He had this to say: Verse 32 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” So, we need to be “on our toes” when we see things that God has predicted in His Word.
I am greatly inspired whenever I read of the prophecies in the book of Isaiah: Isaiah 46:9, “for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.”
You’ll notice here that only this GREAT GOD BEING can absolutely, accurately predict future events! Some still waste their time in reading about or listening to false “prophets” like “Nostradamus” (a French astrologer of Jewish decent), or other Satanic, motivated individuals.
Today, I want to give you a short, but meaningful prophecy, from the Book of Isaiah: Isaiah 9:16 “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed 17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for everyone is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still 19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. 20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:”
You can see here the great anger of God because of the gross hypocrisy and sinful conduct of His people, Israel (Ver. 8-12). One event in particular, seems to trigger His wrath even more: MODERN ISRAEL, BRITAIN and AMERICA, DECENDANTS OF JOSEPH’S TWO SONS, EPHRAIM and MANASSEH TURN AGAINST THEIR BROTHER, JUDAH! (For proof of these modern nations identities, send for our free sermon series, “The Blessings of Abraham, Parts 1-6”)
HERE is a prophecy that appears to being fulfilled right now, during our time! Isaiah 9:21 “Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.” WHY DO I BELIEVE THIS MAY OCCUR? Just WATCH the NEWS! The following quote is from the Knoxville News Sentinel, March 24, 2010: “Britain banishes Israeli diplomat; Britain took the extraordinary step Tuesday of expelling an Israeli diplomat for the first time in more than 20 years, -- British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said trust between the two countries had been badly dented. ---.”
From the same source: “Obama, Israeli PM meet amid dispute; President Barack Obama and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu met at the White House on Tuesday in the midst of a serious dispute that spoiled what might have been a celebration of a recent agreement of peace talks with the Palestinians. They conferred for about 90 minutes.” (The timing of this chapter is near the return of Jesus Christ! (Verses 6, 7).
You should continue to watch as the once inseparable ties between Israel, Britain and the United States become so strained that they will eventually break. This prophecy is for our time. It is just one more sign preluding Christ’s return to this earth.
