Supermoon Appears on Purim then Passover then Rosh Hashannah: An Omen Signaling the Imminent Return of the Davidic Dynasty?
2-28-20, Archives Oswald Chambers -- Indeed the hour is coming…that you…will leave Me alone” (John 16:31-32). Too many born again [John 3:3, 7] Christians have left Jesus Christ alone and yet tried to serve Him out of a sense of duty, or because they sense a need as a result of their own discernment. Often our soul has gotten out of intimate contact with God by leaning on our own "religious" understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is not deliberate sin and there is no punishment attached to it; but once a person realizes how he has hindered his understanding of Jesus Christ, and caused uncertainties, sorrows and difficulties for himself, it is with shame and remorse.
Too often we've put our sense of duty on the throne of our life, instead of enthroning the resurrection life of Jesus. We are not told to “walk in the light” of our conscience or in the light of a sense of duty, but to “walk in the light as He is in the light…” (1 John 1:7).
We should get in the habit of continually seeking the Lord Jesus counsel instead of making our own decisions based on what we think is commonsense and then asking Him to bless them. When we do something out of obedience to the Lord, there can be no other explanation— just obedience.
Jesus said if we love Him, we'll obey Him [John 14:15] and He said we are to feed His sheep. [John 21.17] Jesus is coming again; hopefully all our loved ones have been 'fed' God's truths accepting, repenting and will spend eternity with Him. [John 13:36, 14:2-3] Source
Will We Be Ashamed When Jesus Appears?
“And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”
2-29-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- There are many glorious promises associated with the great promise that Christ Himself shall once again appear in person here on planet Earth. For example:
- Apostle Paul says: “When Christ, Who is our Life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4). “But now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26). “Unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation” (Hebrews 9:28).
- Apostle Peter promises: “And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away” (1 Peter 5:4).
- Apostle John said: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure” (1 John 3:2-3).
- The Lord Jesus said to watch and pray: Mark 13:33, 37
These promises even now constitute an incentive for born again believers [John 3:3, 7] to purify themselves making ready for the wedding supper of the Lamb. [Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 19:7-9]
However, there's also the sobering warning in our text associated with the soon-coming time when He shall appear. We should abide in Him (that is, continue in Him, hour after hour), careful that whatever we say, do or go, that we're in no danger of being ashamed before Him when He shall appear!
Jesus said if we love Him we'd obey Him ... [John 14:15]

Godly Faith: God is in Control?
The Apostle Paul said: “The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. v6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him [God]: for He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. v18 Yea, a man may say, You have faith, and I have works: show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. v26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
3-19-20, * -- Among Christians these days we hear the common cliché: “God is in control!” This means different things to different people. Some believe that no matter what happens, great or small, God is in control of every small detail. Others believe that people believe that God is in control, but there is free will to make decisions and experience the consequences of those decisions—good, bad, or indifferent. Overall, I believe God is in control in that He allows us to make decisions and He will intervene according to His will.
Why this is significant ... some Christians say they will not abide by the US government China coronavirus restrictions because God is in control and anybody taking precaution ... lacks faith.
There are at least two problematic issues with this position; and they are interrelated:
- One is of faith
- Testing God
“I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. This I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbor needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely as stated above. See, this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God.”
Godly faith is not absurd or idiotic, nor does it tempt God. We are God’s representatives on earth. If you believe God is in control, show your faith with wisdom and love.

Christians Have the Lord's Power to Resist the Devil
"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock for which you are overseer. Be shepherds of the God's Church which the Lord Jesus bought with His blood. v6 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
3-18-20, As Christians, we need to be aware of the reality of the presence of evil realizing that our enemies are not merely human ideas, but real forces that come from the powers of darkness. However, Satan, unlike God, is not omnipresent; he can only be in one place at a time and he knows he's wasting his time trying to convince strong born again Christians to go along with him. God's word instructs His children to resist the devil: James 4:7 "submit yourselves to God; resist the devil and he will flee from you."
Of course, he has legions of demons who do his bidding, and they are everywhere seeking to destroy believers’ testimonies. It's a fact that a Christian cannot be possessed by a demon. And when we become born-again we're no longer enslaved to Satan or to sin (Romans 6:6-7). However, we're not immune to the temptations he puts before us - but by the power of the Holy Spirit we will refuse to succumb to the sins of the flesh. However, if we do fall, quickly repenting not intending to repeat ... we are forgiven.
For now, God has allowed Satan significant amounts of power and influence over the earth but always within God’s sovereign control. Satan prowls around like a lion in search of prey, looking for victims to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Satan does have power in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God (Ephesians 2:2). Anyone who is not under the control of the sovereign almighty Lord Jesus Christ is under the control of the devil (Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4).
In response to Satan’s attacks, a Christian should appeal to Christ. We should focus on following Christ (Hebrews 12:2) and trust that He will defeat the forces of evil. God has given us His full armor to stand against evil (Ephesians 6:10-18). The most effective weapons we have against the devil is within us = THE HOLY SPIRIT, our faith and God's wisdom. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. (John 18:36; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5) We are heirs of King Jesus; only in His power can we succeed. Galatians 4:1-7 *Excerpted and adapted
We Are All Sinners in Need of Repentance
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? v23 All have sinned. v3 Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
3-17-20, We know we are sinners … some may deny it, but the fact that we often have evil thoughts and that confirms the fact. Proverbs 23:7 and in Philippians 4:8 “Whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely and commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Why was this admonition necessary? Because we don’t always think about commendable things; confession and desire not to do it again proves we are born again Christians. Those who repeatedly and deliberately do wickedness are not born again. Jesus said not to marvel that He wants us to be born again [John 3:3, 7].
- “The Spirit helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searchs the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27
- “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” James 4:17; Psalm 31:19
- “Jesus said, “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with Him heard these words, and said unto Him, ‘Are we blind also?’ Jesus answered,” If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, ‘We see;’ therefore, your sin remaineth.” John 9:39-41
“the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”
Ancient People Remember
"Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them."
3-16-20, Annette -- Today I saw a three minute video of Senator Barack Obama [in 2005 here] speaking about limiting and halting illegal migrants from entering the USA - he said we need to enforce the 'rule of law!' No more is that the Democrat message. This memory is fresh in the minds of 'seasoned citizens' [aka old folks] and shows one reason why the wicked world leaders want to get rid of old people - we remember stuff. We remember the Ebola and Sars hype also [ABC News here].
- Job 12:12 "Wisdom is found with the elderly and understanding comes with long life."
- Ecclesiastes 1:18 King Solomon said, "For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow."
Recently I talked to some 20 yr olds and asked them if they know about their FICA payroll tax? Yes, knew they paid it, but didn't know the percentage [7.65%] or that it's contributed/paid [with their employer matching funds] into their own personal retirement account -- no govt money in it.
One important fact about the young voters in America; the people who are now 20 ... were 9 years old in 2009 when Obama became president. They have been fed socialist dogma for eight years in free government schools resulting in their world view. So what do they know? Only the swill that the libs/leftists have taught them.
Now with this delusion of the virus being force fed 24/7 through the leftist media and also the government ... panic has ensued  and the country is on a fast downhill slide with the elderly being targeted as a danger to the young - the UK is even considering forcibly quarantining them! Is the USA far behind if that happens? In Kentucky USA two men are being guarded by the police because they refuse to quarantine themselves.  Perhaps it's God's strong delusion? Based on the behaviors and edicts from government officials with the numbers so low; it just doesn't make any other sense. "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. With all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. For this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
Many/most Christian conservatives believe President Trump was/is a breath of fresh air - but the wicked continue with their wickedness; and any good he may do is overshadowed and now the nation is in dire straits again! We had:
- Russia, Russia, Russia
- Ukraine impeach
- And now: Virus, virus, virus
Almighty God sets up world leaders [Deuteronomy 2:20-21]; He has a plan and apparently the much over due judgment for America may now be here.

The Lord said, "Fear Not!"
"The LORD is my Refuge and my Fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee."

Beware the Idea of March
"Et tu, Covad-19?"
Apparently, [some say 'clearly!'] the biggest concern of the USA, from both a worldly and prophetic standpoint, is the so called virus 'Corona' aka COVAD-19 Pandemic. We look at the potential long-term impact on the USA national and world economies.
John takes a deliberate and careful approach to analyze,and interpret conveying a common sense message that looks at both the reality of the virus, but more importantly, the impact on the infrastructural and systems that we take for granted. He also reports on Islamic activities and more ...
Currently the world is experiencing mass panic and hysteria that has ensued since September 2019 when the Chinese first proclaimed their virus had escaped their Wuhan laboratory.
God's Word frequently admonishes us to "Fear not." [Matthew 10:28; 1 Peter 3:14; Isaiah 35:4, 41:10] There is no better time to practice our faith and acknowledge His wisdom and direction as events continue to converge to the point where Christ Himself will execute a resolution for all times and all peoples.
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20

Europe Under Siege: Islamic Barbarians Storming Gates
The beast of Islam was dead; Ottomans killed off in 632 AD and 1683 AD is alive again while in 2020 military aged Muslim men invade Europe
"The beast exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."
3-10-20, FrontPage* -- Charles Martel of France in 732 AD has been lauded as a champion of Christianity as he turned back the horde of Islamic invaders in the Battle of Tours** in the struggle against Islam. According to modern military historian, Victor Davis Hanson "most of the 18th and 19th century historians like [Edward] Gibbon saw Poitiers (Tours) as a landmark battle that marked the high tide of the Muslim advance into Europe."
In 1683 a massive army of the Ottoman Empire laid siege to the Christian city of Vienna***. After two months, an allied force that consisted of men from all over the Holy Roman Empire turned the Ottoman soldiers back, preventing the potential Islamization of the continent.
In recent days, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of the new 'born again' Ottoman Empire’s successor state, Turkey, has unleashed thousands of Muslims, mostly young males of military age, upon the European Union in violation of an agreement with the EU that netted him billions. He has allowed – and encouraged – these people, who have been routinely described in the Western media as “refugees” and “migrants;” it’s called Hirjah – war by migration:
Currently in 2020 seems like old times with the Muslim hordes invading foreign nations. However different this time; whereas seventh and seventeenth-century Europeans understood that they were confronting Islamic invaders. Knowing they were an existential threat to their way of life - however, in today’s world many of the liberal deluded leaders are accepting them at the detriment of their own citizens.
- Swedish Center Party has called on Europeans to “Open your hearts – and your borders.”
- A Feminist Initiative in a show of goodwill apparently has decided to overlook the tendency of Muslim males to treat all women like sex dolls raping at will with little prosecution.
- German chancellor Angela Merkel has allowed tens of thousands Muslims into her nation who were said to be Syrian refugees. Ultimately the overwhelming fact was revealed that the majority of the “migrants” were not Syrian families fleeing war; but young males of military age - Islamic men from all over the Muslim world. [..snip]
Currently, 3-10-20 the Greek government, it’s doing its best to push back the Islamic barbarians at its gates having little choice as Greece is an economic “basket case” and has already been overrun with more Muslims than it can ever hope to handle as it’s become a “refugee warehouse” in which the citizens of some Greek islands are outnumbered by the needy and raucous Muslim newcomers. Nonetheless, Greece has been ravaged by many world leaders for trying to save itself:
- Amnesty International has accused Greece of violating EU and international law by putting an emergency one-month hold on accepting new asylum applications.
- The UN High Commissioner said Greece is in breach of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.
- Human Rights Watch (HRW), maintaining that there’s “no legal basis or justification” for Greece’s stance
- Edouard Rodier of the Norwegian Refugee Council has urged European countries to take in the Muslims.
- what responsibility do those governments have to their own citizens?
- what rights do the taxpayers of Europe have? Do they deserve the “compassion” to which HRW refers?
- Why should the “dignity and humanity” of Muslims from other continents trump the “dignity and humanity” of native Europeans?
- At what point in this decades-long Islamic migrant tsunami be acceptable for the people of Europe to say “enough” without being called bigots?
If this is true, it’ll mark a turning point that people from pretty much the same places whose inhabitants defended Tours** in 632 AD and Vienna*** in 1683 are standing with Greece in the year 2020.
Islam is not a religion it is a warring anti-Christ [1 John 2:18; 22, 4:3; 2 John 1:7] coalition "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God [allah] sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:4
Consider the Islamic Dome of the Rock sitting where it ought not on God's Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Mark 13:14
