Skip Hollyweird’s Deceptive “Noah” Movie

March 31, 2014

Matt Walsh and his wife have seen the new movie called “Noah,” and he reports that it’s not even close to the true biblical story!  See his sarcastically titled review and save yourself some money and time by avoiding this stinker of a movie!

Matt Walsh Blog: I’m a Christian and I think Noah deserves a four star review

My comment there (may still be in moderation):

Hollywood cannot possibly create a genuine film that is firmly based on the Bible. Why? Because they don’t understand the true message of the Bible (as a whole – namely – revealing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and through Him, mankind being reconciled back unto God); nor, do they understand the individual historical accounts contained therein.

Christians who have studied the Bible can recognize, right away, all the lies being pushed in this movie. It’s just more of the leftist propaganda that the media of mass deception loves to spew out there to confuse people.

However, the elect of Christ will not be confused, deceived, or fooled. The Bible tells us this:

Mat 24:24

“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Mar 13:22

“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Lifehouse Everything Skit – The 20,830,167 View Classic

March 28, 2014

For some reason, the Hi-stats page that records visits to my former Talk Wisdom blog are showing searches for an explanation of the Lifehouse Everything Skit. My original post on this was done back in 2008.

Before I share a copy of that post, I wanted to say that there are so many millions of people here in America who are frightened over what they see happening via our current corrupt government, as well as the chaos, turmoil and wars going on around the world.

America used to be known as THE superpower (earthly speaking)  – after all, when WWII happened, we came in and along with the allies conquered Hitler’s Third Reich rise of terror, Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor and their Kamikazee pilots, and during the Reagan years, brought the Berlin wall down; which led to freedom for the states that were under the hammer and sickle brutal control of Communist Russia (known then as “The Soviet Union”).

Today, we see what some are calling a “weak” pResident (I think that Ozero and his evil administration are complicit in the matter – recall 0bama’s off mic scheming? ) making “red line” threats that don’t amount to anything once crossed by the various enemies out there. Look at the awful track record! The BHO Badministration continues to allow the Muslim terrorist slaughter to continue in Syria! The recent invasion of Crimea by Commie and KGB thug Putin (as Charles Krauthammer mentioned – without even a stubbed toe against the Russian army – that came in taking over that formerly sovereign nation within the Ukraine) was countered by the pResident with silly sanctions against a few individuals. Is this any way to run the U.S.A.? No wonder people are scared, angry and confused!

However, I look at it this way. No matter what damage the BHO regime is doing in America and around the world, our Sovereign God is upholding our beloved Nation from falling completely apart.

The goal of this Soros “behind the curtain” billionaire wizard, with the ugly assistance of Iranian ValeriEVIL Jarrett who puppeteers BHO in all he says and does – IS to collapse America. Everything being done by this evil BADministration is for nefarious purposes. [Also see ValeriEVIL Jarrett part 2.]

I continue to pray that God will have mercy upon us and uphold our nation from complete collapse; and help us to get relief from the utter despair that Americans are experiencing today.

Now to the Lifehouse Everything Skit.

My original post’s explanation of the Lifehouse Skit:

The Message and Passion behind “Everything”

The drama focuses on the spiritual warfare being fought for our souls.

At the beginning of the skit, the young woman indulges in the pure joy and innocence of finding her first love in Jesus, as He shows her all the wonderful things He has done and has in store for her.

But this blissful moment becomes tarnished by seemingly harmless distractions, which turn into temptations and ultimately into deadly sins.

The fallen spiritual forces at work begin their relentless attack on the young woman, who takes her eyes off Jesus and sets them on the world.

She finds herself overcome by all the vices made to look so attractive in life: sexual impurity, greed for money, drinking, bulimia, and cutting.

The lies that she has been told about her worthlessness and inability to measure up lead her into depression, attempted suicide, and ultimately into a desperation that spurs her to once again seek her first love.

Only after the woman hits rock bottom does she remember the true source of her joy — a relationship with Christ.

But she’s not alone as she battles to regain the abundant life Jesus has given her. Unable to fend off the enemy’s spiritual attack on her own, she puts her eyes back on Jesus, who is waiting for her call for help.

Eager to step in and fight the battle for His bride, Jesus fends off and defeats the demonic attackers who are after her very soul and life.

We are reminded that Christ already won the battle for our souls on the cross, and that we have victory over our sins through our hope and redemption in Jesus.

It affirms I John 4:4: “You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

*******

You see, salvation of the soul is an individual matter. It is between each and every human being and God’s Son, Jesus Christ. We cannot be “collectively saved,” as the leftists claim that they want to achieve.  What they REALLY want is everyone collectively dependent upon their nefarious and evil government!

“Social Justice” may be “social” (more like Socialism=Communism=Tyranny); but it IS NOT JUSTICE!

Let’s examine the definition of the term, “justice”:
jus·tice [juhs-tis] Show IPA

noun

1.

the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness: to uphold the justice of a cause.

2.

rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of ground or reason: to complain with justice.

3.

the moral principle determining just conduct.

4.

conformity to this principle, as manifested in conduct; just conduct, dealing, or treatment.

5.

the administering of deserved punishment or reward.

*******

What the left is attempting to accomplish, could more accurately be labeled as a “do justice” ploy with one caveat; their true goal is complete control over everyone’s lives!

do justice,

a.

to act or treat justly or fairly.

b.

to appreciate properly: We must see this play again to do it justice.

c.

to acquit in accordance with one’s abilities or potentialities: He finally got a role in which he could do himself justice as an actor.

 

But this current government does make us feel like the young girl in the Lifehouse skit!   Americans today are feeling pushed, pulled, prodded, and forced into things that we never even dreamed would have been done by our government years ago!  The BHO collective mantra of “spreading the wealth around,” “forcing individuals into a socialized health care system that MOST DO NOT WANT,” making claims for “equality” which are being interpreted incorrectly as equality for some, (i.e. abortion rights advocates, homosexual marriage advocates, contraceptive/abortifacient drug coverage forced on Christian or other faith based businesses)  inevitably tramples on the free speech and religious freedom rights of others which are guaranteed in our Constitution!

The leftist idea of “utopia” is a fairy-tale! It’s something that cannot be achieved without suppressing, and depressing those who don’t agree with their world view agenda – most of which is evil – when you compare what they advocate.  Most of it goes entirely against the truth, goodness, and righteousness included in biblical standards. Therefore, one side is allowed “tolerance,” while the other side is silenced, called disgusting names, unfairly judged, ridiculed, hated, sued out of business, and in some cases, killed for their religious beliefs.

I think that many Christians here in America are waking up to the fact that we need to stand up for our rights; otherwise we may lose them. God’s Word does not tell us to just lay down and “take it.” We are to fight for our rights – all the way until the time of Jesus’ return!

Ephesians 4 informs us how to walk in our faith.

We are also told to be bold, speak truth, and share the Gospel of truth; in good times and in bad times:
Mar 16:15

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

What’s more, despite the political “chains” that our nation is currently enduring, we are to continue our work and do as Paul stated:

Eph 6:20

for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Righteous Indignation Is Biblical

March 27, 2014

 

My good friend Steve over at Cry and Howl has two posts up regarding how crazy the liberal mind works. In the second post, he rants (and I love his rants!) about how Liberals are such panty-waist freaks. That post was in  reaction to Child sexual identity justice finally arrives for a murderer.

Some definitions:

World English Dictionary

righteous (ˈraɪtʃəs)

— adj
1. a. characterized by, proceeding from, or in accordance with accepted standards of morality, justice, or uprightness; virtuous: a righteous man
b. ( as collective noun ; preceded by the ): the righteous
2. morally justifiable or right, esp from one’s own point of view: righteous indignation

in·dig·na·tion [in-dig-ney-shuhn] Show IPA

noun
strong displeasure at something considered unjust, offensive, insulting, or base; righteous anger.

Origin:
1325–75; Middle English indignacio ( u ) n < Latin indignātiōn- (stem of indignātiō ), equivalent to indignāt ( us ) past participle of indignārī to be indignant, take offense + -iōn- -ion; see indignant

Righteous indignation used to be considered a virtuous standard of morality. However, “political correctness” and the twisted use of the term “discrimination,” (which includes the aberrant overuse of cries of “racism”) unfairly causes people who disagree with the onslaught of evil and sinful moral “values” being inculcated into our children’s minds and society in general – to be silenced.

For example.

There is a new commercial out that is comparing the “wholesomeness” of a cracker to “celebrates” two men raising a child. At the end of it, the claim is made that everything in the commercial is “wholesome.” Wholesome to whom? Certainly not to God! He made them male and female. And, marriage has always been defined as the union of one man and one woman. What’s more, Christians who agree with God’s Word on such issues are labeled as anything but wholesome. They are called bigots, homophobes, racists…you name it!

Where is the tolerance in that?

Well, the leftists are trying to make deeply held biblical Christian beliefs a crime. Unfortunately, their loud, one-sided media blitzkrieg on such issues is making Christian thought, beliefs, and moral practice the one “politically correct” target for hate, discrimination, bigotry, silencing, and punishment.

Christians are not surprised.

The Bible warns us in books like Revelation, Jude, and others, that such evil being called “good” by the unrepentant mass of humanity will increase the closer we get to the end times. But that is a topic for another post.

When you read the content of Steve’s posts, you will understand why such  negative labels presented by him (as well as many more descriptions of evil) would apply.

Excerpt from second post:

To my Christian readers, I apologize for the unsavory language, but sometimes “darn” and “heck” does not cut it.

You know something folks, I’m so sick of pussies ie liberals who cannot take the same crap they dish out. Their little panties get in a wad acting so offended, crying like the little bitches they are when their freakish mind-set is pointed out. This morning I made a comment in my post, A Child’s Sexual Identity … Justice finally arrives for murdered teen, which was, To liberals only the innocent in the womb and new born children are worthy of death. “I can’t believe he said that!” says the liberals. I made that statement because it happens to be the absolute truth. During the Kermit Gosnell trial there were horrific pictures of fully developed babies who had their spinal cords snipped by Mr. Gosnell and then just thrown into the trash. Liberals commented saying “Women need these kinds of services.” The babies damn sure didn’t. Yet now that their dementia is highlighted at Cry and Howl with the above statement by me, liberals are aghast saying I have a tortured mind saying such a thing. Tell me who’s tortured … a person who can see a fully developed, viable baby chopped up and thrown in the trash and say … “women need this” or me by my saying “to liberals only the innocent in the womb and new born children are worthy of death?” I might be tortured, but it’s by the stunning callousness and sick perverse minds inhabiting the every day liberal.

Steve is absolutely correct in his descriptions!  The callousness and sick perverted minds that would allow for the murder of babies in (or out) of the womb is unconscionable!

God’s Word contains many admonitions about “calling evil “good,” and good, “evil.”  And, what did Jesus say about harming the little children?

Mat 18:6

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mar 9:42

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.

Luk 17:2

“It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

 

Recall that when Jesus was born at the Incarnation, the king ordered that all 2 year olds and under in the area should be killed.

Why?

Because that earthly king didn’t want another King, imposing upon his reign.  Therefore, his evil mindset caused him to  want the eternal King, Lord of Lords, Son of God, and Savior to be destroyed.

Some non-believers might claim that Christ was destroyed, years later, at the crucifixion. But Christians know better.  The purpose of that universal act was not just physical, but spiritual, and took away the consequences of sin, evil, and death for the souls of mankind who repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

My comment there:

As one of your Christian readers, I must admit that your “colorful” language actually makes me laugh! In my view, taking the Lord’s name in vain, the f word, c word – well, you know the really crude stuff that often gets tossed around – is much more serious and really bothers me. I can’t stand watching any movies that utilize such language, so I stick to the Hallmark Channel and movies that are Christian themed; as well as movies that have redemptive value and are uplifting.

Sometimes the truth hurts – and in this case, the truth is that the liberal mindset is not only hurtful, harmful,  and despicable, but evil and deadly as well.

It amazes me that the Hollyweird crowd won’t wear fur because it comes from the hide of an animal, but they wholeheartedly support abortion that kills a helpless child in the womb…going so far as to approve of  a partial birth abortion method that delivers a child outside the womb, then gruesomely kills the baby.

As you expressed in your excellent post, God in HIs Word says, “Woe to those who call evil “good”, and good “evil.”

Therefore, why shouldn’t Christians take a stand and say WHOA to stop such evil practices?

Let’s take that “woe” verse and include the following:

Isa 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isa 5:21

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

 

Isa 5:22

Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,

 

Isa 5:23

Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

 

Isa 5:24

Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

 

I would like to add that reprobate and degenerate minds cannot be fixed without confession and repentance at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ.

In a previous post at my former blog (included in link above), I wrote:

I am a sinner, too. Similarly, I could list all of my former heterosexual sins that required my confession and repentance. I can say that I would never EVER want to return to the way I once conducted my life in the past. But I have to tell all of you that it wasn’t in my own power that this happened. Ask any Christian whether or not they were able to leave their former life of sin (ANY sin) and I think you will find that they will most often say something similar to:

Only after being born again in Jesus Christ did His power, (through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and my (our) love for Jesus Christ) enable my (our) flesh to be “crucified” and my (our) spirit(s) to DESIRE to follow Christ and keep his commandments.

Yes. No one is perfect and sinful choices can still tempt us and we can backslide and succumb to them. We have seen many a Christian believer (especially those in the public arena) do just that. But they realize the wrong they have done and turn back to Christ. They realize that their actions were a result of the flesh and because they did not “retain the knowledge of God” at that very moment where they succumbed to a sin. Not allowing the Holy Spirit to guide them at that moment can lead to backsliding. However, backsliding is not the same thing as willful sinning!

Those who willfully continue to sin and haven’t completely given themselves over to Christ are in danger of being told by Christ, “Go away, you evil doers, I never knew you!”

This is what is at stake my friends.

Unfortunately, those who don’t want to hear it – or believe it – will resist, at all costs, any admonition by anyone regarding what is necessary to repent, be saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and reconciled back unto God.

This is why it is often futile to try to reach such individuals. In some cases, God has “given them over” to a reprobate mind.

However, don’t take my word for it. Read God’s Word:

Rom 2:1

Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.

Rom 2:2

But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Rom 2:3

And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

Rom 2:4

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

Rom 2:5

But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

Rom 2:6

who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: [fn]

Rom 2:7

eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;

Rom 2:8

but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,

Rom 2:9

tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;

Rom 2:10

but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Rom 2:11

For there is no partiality with God.

Is Evil Iran the Perpetrator in the Maylasian Jetliner Mystery?

March 18, 2014

Hello again world…it’s been a while since my last post.  I may continue to be absent until some time in April, but I wanted to weigh in on the missing Malaysian jetliner debacle.

When I do watch the news, I generally tune into the Fox News Channel.  Occasionally, I watch the Weather Channel for updates on local and national weather forecasts.  I must admit that the theories floating around regarding this “missing” plane are quite disturbing.  How can we possibly decipher the truth when so many lies are put forth by the ObaMARXIST  BADministration’s media of mass deception?

Last night, I watched a recently recorded episode of “Israel News Now.”  It’s on the DayStar network.  During the broadcast, a segment that was done on the missing jetliner mentioned that Iran is suspected as the true perpetrator in this “mystery.”  As many astute readers here already know,  Iran’s terrorist mullahs and their evil indoctrinated minions all have the ongoing ulterior motive to “wipe Israel off the map.”  This was the first mention that I had heard about Iran being suspected.  Since I don’t watch the alphabet soup news shows or the other cable news shows, perhaps someone else on TV has mentioned this possibility?

I thought it strange that the pilots of the airliner were not investigated right away.   What took so long?  The one pilot pictured on a Fox News broadcast (several days after this incident occurred) had on a T-shirt that read, “Democracy is Dead.”  Well, that’s a communist’s and Muslim terrorist’s jointly held dream; so the perpetrators could be from either ideology.  I would guess that the pilot was radicalized towards the latter ideology.  We shall see.

Since I have been away from blogging for several weeks, I haven’t kept up with all the theories floating around out there in cyberspace on the missing jetliner.  However, this morning I read an intriguing article over at The Last Refuge entitled “MH 370: The “Kairn Hypothetical” – How Would The Entire World Respond To A Flying Nuclear “Hot Potato” ?”

Now THAT’S a truly scary scenario!! More questions than answers in that post.

Coincidentally, though, there were some comments at The Last Refuge blog which actually agreed with the news broadcast from the aforementioned “Israel Now News” show.

I still think Israel is the target. Iran wants to wipe them off of the face of the earth. There is the possibility that the weapon used might be biological which would wipe out a whole nation. This plane needs to be found pronto. World War III could be just around the corner. And here America sits with a diminished military.

If it gets to Israel, maybe it will be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 when God supernaturally protects Israel, much to the world’s amazement — Persia is mentioned in verse 5.

Moishe Pipik says:

March 18, 2014 at 11:10 am

G-d has already quite clearly protected Israel during the War of Independence, The Six Day war, and the Yom Kippur war. You’d think that would be enough to make the world sit up and take notice, but it wasn’t.

*******

radish says:

March 18, 2014 at 3:13 am

All the scarier, because it is quite possible the plane landed in Iran under the cover of darkness, Tehran time, 3:30 A.M, tarmac pulled or in a hangar. There would have been no need to emergency land it on a short runway. 7 hours was the last ping received from an active engine. Last contact with Malay airport was about 1:27 A.M. Last ping would be approximately 7:30 A.M. Kua Lumpur time, equivalent to 3:30 A.M Tehran time. The plane traveled the entire time under darkness.

Certainly has the potential to bring to fruition much described in Revelations. Especially since ALL the “players” foretold in the Bible are in place or are posturing. As terrible as it is, I hope they find it in the sea. America has never been as weak as we are now under obama (lower case as usual, intended) and whenever he isn’t golfing, otherwise vacationing, missing it seems ALL of his briefings, or reading lie after lie off a teleprompter in all 57 states and sometimes in other really far away countries (big breath here…whew!…..those runaway sentences always leave me breathless!!), he is curled up in some corner in the fetal position. At this point….I’d rather go back to crawling under my desk every three months and believing those blast/radiation proof drapes were enough to prevent my vaporization. My own thought on the plane…… in an era where “they” know everything thing about everybody and have a virtual “camera” on the entire globe, it is hard to believe “they” don’t know where it is. The delay, depending on whether it crashed in the ocean and the recovery of “sensitive cargo” is in play, or if it safely landed in a muslim friendly state and thus cannot be revealed while intel is gathered and when necessary, a Specops (Seals) operation is initiated are still plausible. I miss my grandma, and she died over 50 years ago……..was no worries then…..that I knew of…..!

*******

Included in the dialogue there is the mention of Obummer’s “off mic” comment to Medvedev:

Aslan’s Girl says:

March 18, 2014 at 6:12 am

Obama to Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

The entire international “show” going on with Putin annexing Crimea appears (to me, at least) to have been in the plans between Hussein and Vladimir all along – don’t you agree?   Otherwise, why would Obozo  have had a hour’s long conversation with the communist when this episode with Ukraine started? Why did Hussein change the plan to place nukes in Poland to protect those states out there which came from the former Soviet Union when he originally took office in 2009? Why did Hussein hold a brief news conference (with no reporter questions allowed) and state that sanctions will be done against Russia which will only “harm” the holdings of 17 people from that country? They probably already withdrew their funds from the U.S. in preparation for this invasion.  Now, they are all laughing at Obama!

The answer to these, as well as many more questions being posed on both of these issues is this:

“It’s all by design.”

Well, no matter how bad things get in this fallen world, there is always hope in Jesus Christ and what He is preparing for believers in eternity!

I like what Asian girl says here:

Aslan’s Girl says:

March 18, 2014 at 5:59 am

This scenario makes me think of Wormwood in Revelation 8:10-11; something falling out of the sky that poisons the waters; I know it isn’t (since that is the 3rd of the 7 Trumpet Judgments), but nations might decide to shoot such a plane out of the sky over the ocean which would only be a short-term help seeing as how it would really damage the ocean long-term.

It also makes me remember that no matter what evil man has planned, God is greater and He can thwart the plans. If such a scenario turns out to be true, I pray Israel figures out where this plane is and bombs it before it bombs us. Israel destroyed Saddam’s nuclear reactor in ’81, let’s pray they stop this, too (btw, can you imagine the debt humankind owes Israel for stopping Saddam’s nukes?).

Perhaps this incident isn’t (as Asian girl admits) the Wormwood prophecy in Revelation 8. However, we ARE witnessing the fulfillment of many other prophecies from the Bible:

*The prophecies written in the Bible accurately describe the ancient nations that will surround Israel in the last days in an attempt to destroy Her.  Here is an excerpt from a former post about a prophecy found in Psalm 83:2-8.

Today, we are continually witnessing Biblical prophecy happening right before our very eyes!

As astounding as it was, the prophecies surrounding the rebirth of Israel did not stop with the declaration of Israel’s independence in 1948.

Three thousand years ago God inspired King David to predict that the reborn nation of Israel would be immediately surrounded by enemies, including the Arab nations of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.

“For lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken craftly counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Hoab; and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah” (Psalm 83:2-8).

In this incredible prophecy, David described the modern states of the Middle East by naming the ancient nations that have now joined with the Palestinians in their attempt to destroy the Jewish state in the last days.

This ancient prophetic list of nations is fascinating, as it enumerates virtually every one of the nations in the Arab confederacy that oppose Israel’s existence today:

Edom………from Esau, brother of Jacob (Jordan)

Ismaelites…descended from Ishmael, son of Hagar (Arabs)

Moab………son of Lot, (Jordan, east of Dead Sea)

Hagarenes….descended from one of the 12 sons of Hagar

Gebal……..ancient Byblus, (north of today’s Beirut)

Ammon……..son of Lot, (capital of Jordan)

Amalek…….descended from Esau (southern Jordan)

Philistines..from Ham, (throughout Palestine, Syria)

Tyre………a Phoenician city (Lebanon)

Assur……..founded Assyria; (Iraq – Iran)

Children of Lot, Moab, and Ammon, (Jordan)

*******

In addition to the prophecy in Psalms, below you will find more end times prophecy in Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 35:1-5, 10 describes the coming judgment of God against these Arab nations, including Edom (Mount Seir) in Jordan, because of their centuries-old hatred of the Jews.Ezekiel 35:1 – 15
Judgment on Mount Seir

35 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it, 3 and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you;
I will stretch out My hand against you,
And make you most desolate;
4 I shall lay your cities waste,
And you shall be desolate.
Then you shall know that I am the Lord.

5 “Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, 6 therefore, as I live,” says the Lord God, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you. 7 Thus I will make Mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it the one who leaves and the one who returns. 8 And I will fill its mountains with the slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those who are slain by the sword shall fall. 9 I will make you perpetually desolate, and your cities shall be uninhabited; then you shall know that I am the Lord.

10 “Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’ although the Lord was there, 11 therefore, as I live,” says the Lord God, “I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge you. 12 Then you shall know that I am the Lord. I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.’ 13 Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me; I have heard them.”

14 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate. 15 As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom–all of it! Then they shall know that I am the Lord.”‘

Ezekiel gave another prophecy against Edom (also called Seir); his first prophecy against Edom is found in 25:12-14. In this prophecy, Ezekiel is probably using Edom to represent all the nations opposed to God’s people Chapter 36 says that Israel will be restored, while this chapter says that Edom (God’s enemies) will be made “a desolate waste.”

Note on 35:2 – Edom offered to help destroy Jerusalem and rejoiced when the city fell. Edom’s long-standing hostility against God’s people resulted in God’s judgment.

Note on 35:6-8 – Ezekiel prophesied not only against the people of Edom, but also against their mountains and land. Their home territory was Mount Seir. Mountains, symbols of strength and power, represented the pride of these people who thought they could get away with evil. Edom’s desire for revenge turned against them. Edom received the punishment they were so hasty to give out.

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed God’s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). It’s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because it’s tainted by man’s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we can’t find on our own. It is God’s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a “post-truth” world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? It’s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. It’s what’s true for me—my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects God’s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have God’s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truth” (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, “The entirety of your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). When Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6), He wasn’t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesn’t change from person to person. It doesn’t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is “no one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].” This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
