WARNING: Persecution Creeps toward the USA

From watch.org on November 1

Billy Graham’s Warning to American Churches: ‘Prepare for Persecution’

The Rev. Billy Graham has issued a written warning to America’s churches: “Prepare for persecution.”

The renowned preacher and founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association penned a commentary that was posted on his website last week and is slated to appear in the November edition of Decision magazine.

In the magazine, Graham notes that the American church has been largely unfamiliar with persecution, writing that this “immunity to persecution that Christians in our country have experienced in the past two or three centuries is unusual.”

“As a whole, our nation does not know what privation is. We do not know what sacrifice is. We do not know what suffering is. Suppose persecution were to come to the church in America, as it has come in other countries,” wrote Graham.

“Since we have experienced little religious persecution in this country, it is likely that under pressure many would deny Christ. Those who shout the loudest about their faith may surrender soonest.”

———– End Times Note ———-

Persecution of the “saints” comes in the end of this era of time on earth. This is clearly noted in Scripture. Reverend Graham is attempting to wake up a sleeping public. The US has spent more time recently being PC (politically correct) and as a result there are those claiming rights, as in civil rights, for issues that are not merely civil, but sinful. Scripture tells us we will arrive at a time when “right is wrong and wrong is right” … a lawless state will creep across the globe … it’s already happening and you are probably sleeping in the face of reality.

Like ISIS beheading ‘infidels’ or oppressing peoples in the Middle East of the imposition of religious law (Shiria law) on those who have otherwise lived at peace and with morality unifying their communities (e.g., Iraq, Syria, elsewhere) … persecution in the extreme will plow all that under into darkness … why would that only happen “over there” and not here … persecution creeps and spreads its tendrils … slowly and over time … persecution comes.

Global Halloween 2015

Clearly we live in a world increasingly at risk for falling directly into the Bible’s end time scenario. In fact, Muslims of the extreme stripe already agree.  After all ISIS is beheading ‘infidels’ (according to their definition) and attacking peaceful people to create a disruption that most nations sit quietly to watch from the sidelines. That in itself is a Global Halloween horror!

Oh, yes I hear folks say it all the time this is just “saber rattling” that happens throughout history. So, what’s so new about all this and maybe we can just ignore the friction and continue living as if all this stuff carries no relevance. This would be living by “our understanding” and not recognizing a more all encompassing perspective of biblical proportions. You may not get it today … but the Global Halloween is full of evidence for the horrors and misdeeds of the end times that are not simply yet to come … THEY ARE upon us today.  Why? Well! To just highlight a couple thoughts …

RUSSIAN TRICKS and TREATS

There is nothing more obvious when lies are conspicuous to the global community. What’s worse, the nations of the world see the lies of one nation and then not call out that bad player as lier and deceiver.

Russia has moved into the Middle East to support a weak ally in Syria. Declaring their effort is aimed at defeating terrorism and even battling ISIS, the daily news reports clearly show otherwise. In fact, Russia is helping Iran to enter into the fray by transporting Iranian weapons into Syria to fight the opposing forces to the Syrian ‘leadership,’ as is if we can even consider Assad a leader of any honest nature. But here is the bottom line on Russia’s trickery … the treats awaiting Russia will be called out by a Heavenly Father who understands the evil nature of man, perhaps especially Putin himself, and this one day will be the eternal downfall to what Russia has started recently. But more so, Russia has begun, and adds to, the circling of hostile nations and hostile forces, in and around Israel … one more step deeper into End Time. You do not have to agree, it’s just happening in spite of what any wishful thinking might be … and, oh yeah, recently China has shown up with war ships in the arena of the Middle East … Trick or Treat!

GHOULS in GAZA and GOLAN 

Can the terrorists stop sending missiles across Israel’s borders in their attempt to harass, kill, and disrupt Israel? Again, we see signs of the End Time because the rhetoric keeps being amplified … and the enemies of Israel teach their children that is is good to stab with knives, to wear bombs as martyrs, and to simply focus on hate. You don’t even have to have any particular opinion of Israel to know, within one’s heart, that all these behaviors are ghoulish and sick. It’s the global zombies, voodoo thinking, and mindless brain washed beings who just “don’t get it!”  Wake up from the dead! And yet, all the while, the global community of nations sit in the bleachers hoping the global nightmare will all go away.

I am not going to write about the prospects for peace, because when a peace covenant finally does come (it’s in Scripture folks), especially for the sake of Jerusalem and the to be built Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the ghouls will still be around and will only help to usher in the sequence of events that are called the End Time. Yep, they all decry “Peace, Peace,” but the end comes. It was and is written … and you can read it in Scripture. I don’t have to repeat it here … I’m just telling you the ghouls have their way today … tomorrow reveals their paradise is something of a Halloween horror that they have been tricked into thinking is something wonderful, but in fact is eternally awful. It’s awful enough here, today. Do you get it?

FEAR of END TIMES

I write all this with a special sadness in my heart. I say this because any discerning person, even Muslims, those who want a peaceful non-conflicting life, can read the Scripture of the Old and New Covenants to see ‘another side’ to what the Koran alone says. I once read an article that noted the Prophet’s hands “are open t the New Covenant.” Wow! Really? Incredible! How could that even be true if Islam is to embrace humanity as a whole in love and peace. Christians and Jews all around the world watch what is going on in the Middle East and see strife revealing humanity’s obsessions with issues and causes that do not solve global problems. Global Halloween is here every day!

But wait … we are encouraged by the western African Imam who declared a Green Jihad for the sake of ‘saving our environment.’ What an absolutely bold stroke and universally aware perspective from within the Islamic community, even in agreement with the global scientific community … something that looks at a much larger picture and embraces life and not the tricks and mis-guided treats of a misdirected human will.

Mr. Putin’s play for power or those who espouse death to any person or nation on earth are all going to face the reality of God (the God of the Bible, of Israel, Father of all) and in a moment of confrontation with the Eternal and His truth will come a bone chilling, bone rattling, and penetrating truth, which is, we all have in this day the possibility of embracing the ultimate truth … it’s all written in the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek Scriptures.

Maybe for you the real treat of this Halloween is to learn the truth and to stop tricking yourself into think about a false paradise … the eternal truth is the ultimate treat and we all, I mean WE all, everyone of any nation, religion, culture, WE ALL need to see through the global trickery to see TRUTH.

Sign of the Christian Church Apostasy

At first blush one might mistake this post as a criticism of Islam. Hardly. The Book of Revelation starts with a series of letters to the churches. Each letter characterizes a type of church. Further the series of letters are taken to characterize the church ages over periods of time from the First Century to the last and present church age. The last church age is labeled the Apostate Church Age.

To practicing Christians nothing can be more a sign of the apostate condition than any kind of allowance or practice the goes against biblical teaching. Same sex marriage goes against Scripture (e.g. Leviticus 20:13) and hosting worship by persons who do not regard Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) as Messiah and thus Devine being, is clearly counter to Bible principles. Yet, the National Cathedral in Washington allows both. Our point is simple, this is merely a sign that we are indeed in an apostate era.

The following image from the Watch.org web page on November 15 shows both the Muslim worshippers, but the accompanying text makes points reflected here. As for the Muslim faithful, it might be worth note they have prostrate the,selves in the House of the Lord a place built (we trust) by the US to honor the God of Israel and the Messiah who died and was resurrected that we may live eternally with the God of Israel. To think otherwise is apostasy in its own right. We hope they might investigate the significance of this point.

Perhaps the sad conclusion is that many people rationalize such things are permissible in the eyes of God. If it were so the Bible would not include the ‘teachings,’ also known as Torah. Many believe the Torah is obsolete, but for those who search Scripture there is no such justification. We live in an age of human compromises and rationalizations in the name of political correctness. A holy and righteous God has left us instruction that says otherwise. Discerning what His will is becomes the cutting edge of what applies and how we are to approach the days beyond this age.

The Antichrist and Global Change

The WindowView pages were reorganized during 2014.  From the Home page you can click on the main links for Change, Science, Harmony, and Convergence … and in each case you arrive at a brief introductory video. From each intro you can get the view on what’s in the window by reading an overview followed by a thesis page.

To kick off the integration of science and scriptural data, the Change area presents a thesis indicating, on the one hand, global changes will continue to generate concerns and consequences.  On the other hand, economic and political forces will bring the world to adoption of a ten region (kingdom) based global governance. In steps a dynamic figure, a ‘strong man,’ who offers the world hope in the face of continued environmental and social stresses … and he will next turn the ten regional governments into a single global governance.

While not explicit the Change Thesis page is really saying you won’t, we won’t, the world won’t know that they are seeing the antichrist take a central role in global power … not simply in spiritual terms, but in material terms that will appeal to humans who continually seek a way out of material and natural woes.

Like any good politician, the strong man’s platform will be built of many planks, one of which will tout solutions to climate and global change.  The Scriptures give a clue as to how this will work and the Thesis page outlines the basic points to illustrate this facet of the future.

Take a look at the Change Thesis page and let us know what you think … a link to our comment form is located on the footer of each page at WindowView!

The LAST Pope NOW?!

There are a number of web pages such as this one:

http://www.bibleprobe.com/last10popes.htm

… many describe the long series of Popes according to the prophecy of a 12th Century monk.  many believe the monk got it right!  Coincidence? Devinely inspired?

Are we about to see the installation of the LAST Pope who will be in the Vatican when Yeshua (Jesus) returns to earth?

Believe it or not, the resignation of the Pope in 2013 leads us to the “LAST Pope” according to St. Malachy. Fasten your seat belts folks!

Here is one of the current reports on the resignation here (one of many but this one states how unusual this event is!):

Noah and You – Which Direction?

These are the days of Noah in this era. How can we tell?

First, ask yourself where you are headed today … relative to the signs Noah was faced with long ago … and watch the video here. Then we’ll add a few interesting points for further consideration below.  And all this goes to a Harmony that exists in Scripture … just listen to Burt tell it … it’s in the video …

The following link is to a five minute movie [click on link to open video]:

NOAH: Which Way Are You Goin’?

[Sit back, enjoy, browser may take a minute to start ]

Oh … and as for the signs that these are like the days of Noah … Iran threatens to overrun Jerusalem, a President thinks he can negotiate peace in Israel, rockets still arrive in Gaza by way of tunnels and ships, Syria will destroy Damascus like Isaiah says, hate headlines fill the front pages, changes blanket the globe, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, economic volatility, birth pangs as Yeshua said, along with rumors of wars and battles proliferate all around … and mean while, babies are born, couples get married, farmers plow, merchants market, and life has qualities of going on as normal … but it’s not just normal … for these are the days of Noah, TODAY!

Egypt’s stock market plummets after Morsi’s decree

Morsi’s decree a sign of the times

Egypt’s benchmark stock index has plunged 9.5 percent halfway through the first trading session since the country’s Islamist president issued decrees to assume near absolute powers.

The Bible is one step ahead of Middle East events … But don’t tell the Muslims that the story is already written … Unless they really want to know the God of the Universe, Israel, and the Name above all names! Just read what the prophet wrote over two thousand years ago!

Isaiah 19

19:2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

19:3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

19:4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.

19:10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

19:15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.

19:16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which he shaketh over it.
