In the centre of Buenos Aires, there is a theme park named Tierra Santa (Holy Land) that claims to be the first religious theme park in the world.

Tierra Santa attempts to replicate the streets of Jerusalem during Jesus’ time.

Visitors walk around the narrow streets that are full of plastic palm trees, statues and actors recreating crucial scenes from Jesus’ life.

Long queues of families, tourists and young couples stand at the entrance.

Many of them are come from all over Argentina, but it is not uncommon to spot foreigners.

The park is almost a pilgrimage site for some visitors, with its unique mix of religious reverence and kitschy entertainment.

The main attraction of the amusement park is a 60ft (18m) high mechanical statue of Jesus that rises up once an hour from a plaster replica of the Golgotha mountaintop.

The event is accompanied by a loud chorus from Handel’s Messiah.

When the giant Jesus has completed his ascent, he swivels, closes his eyes and rotates the palms of his hands, provoking great emotion in the visitors at the bottom of the mountain.

The staff of the park are all dressed in costume inspired by Jesus’ era.

Visitors can take pictures next to security guards dressed as ancient Romans or buy a waffle from a Middle Eastern inspired cafe.

The only reminders of modern life come from above: the park is situated right next to Jorge Newbery Airport, and a plane flies over the plastic palm trees every few minutes.

JERUSALEM ISRAEL JUBILEE

jerus.jpg2017 is special in many ways to Jewish people and nation of Israel as June 7 marks 50th anniversary celebration of recapture, liberation, reunification of Old City of Jerusalem. Jewish military forces of 1967 in 6 Day War Recaptured Holy City of God to regain control again completely in Jewish hands after 2,000 year’s exile and oppression. Historical record shows Jews live in Jerusalem since Adam and Eve, Abraham, King David purchased the threshing floor on Mount Moriah now Temple Mount 3,000 years ago to build Altar to LORD God Almighty full price. David paid Ornan 600 shekels of gold weight for site in 1 Chronicles 21:22–25 in the Bible. Romans destroyed second Jewish Temple in AD 70 and scattered Jewish people into exile but remnant live in Holy Land ever since. The Kotel Jewish connection to Jerusalem’s eternal wall and Temple Mount prove identity of Israel here thousands of years brought back to the homeland.” Jerusalem 2017 celebrates 50th Jubilee comemorating victory and set slaves free plus cancel debts. May to June is time of Shavuot Pentecost in Jewish calendar. Shavuot Festival of Weeks celebrates God’s giving of Law to Jewish people through Moses. Yahweh God confirms covenant commitment to Jewish people’s eternal relationship between God as His Chosen people. God’s COVENANT COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP with Jewish people in real true living history demonstrates SALVATION PLAN OF GOD through this relationship. God Made Israel a Great Nation Blessed by God’s Great Name and a Blessing to Bless ALL who Bless Israel and Curse those who curse Israel. Through Israel all Families of the Earth is Blessed.” GOD Blessed Abraham and descendants as God’s Chosen people with duty of care to God and all nations. The miracle Exodus from Egypt brought the Israelites up out of slavery to settle as God’s Nation. Laws through Moses at Mt. Sinai celebrated Shavuot perfectly collaborates Coming of Holy Spirit to followers of Yeshua on day of Pentecost in Acts 2. Fulfillment of living history prophesies regarding Israel and Jerusalem point to the Great Truth of God’s Loves and Plan through Jewish people. As Role Models of God the Jewish people remain the chosen ones to fulfil God’s Plans for all nations. All nations are GRAFTED into Israel so nobody replaces Jews because of Jesus Christ says Romans 11:29, Gifts and Calling of God is irreversible. God’s Words in Bible reminds all of need for Jewish people to fulfill the relationship with God Reclaiming Messiah Coming to Restore whole through the knowledge of Yeshua. So Key to victory is accepting Jesus Yeshua Saviour whether Jewish or Gentile. Shared covenant commitment God gave through Jewish people require responsibility to share Good News with world. So Jewish people realize Yeshua is the Messiah they have long-awaited. From the biblical standpoint Jerusalem matters, political standpoint Jerusalem matters. From living history standpoint, Jerusalem matters. From the prophetic standpoint Jerusalem matters globally. ShowImageOld Testament Jerusalem living history says Israel marched 7 times in Bible in Battle of Jericho the first battle Israel conquered Canaan. According to Joshua 6:1-27, the city walls of Jericho fell after Israelite army marched around the city blowing their trumpets. Archaeological artefact and finds prove with evidence, conquest. Records name Israel in the Merneth stele erected for the Egyptian Pharaoh Meneptah c. 1209 BCE, Israel toiled, laid waste in Goshen culturally, politically as a nation perceived by the Egyptians a threat to them. Excavations discovered remains of the networks of collapsed walls dated to 1400 BCE and destruction occurred c.1500 BCE. During wars refugees escape and leave behind city so poor and old to till the land. The famine of Joseph’s time and Egypt’s food reserves campaign period meant Jews deserted Jerusalem. And captivities till mid-late 13th century meant the Jews expelled from land thousands of years after many generations. Abraham and Jacob settled in Canaan with the tribes inhabiting Jerusalem before conquest in Joshua 11:3 & 12:10 or slavery in Egypt. King David in 2 Samuel 5:6-10 as Books of Kings says Jerusalem Jebus city was reconquered by King David between 1003 BCE and 869 BCE. Joshua 15:63 says though wall was breached with great shout and fell, Judah did not get rid of the Jebusites living in Jerusalem. Jebusites live here with people of Judah according to Judges 1:21. And Jebusites continue to dwell in Jerusalem city in territory of the Tribe of Benjamin. 3,000 years ago King David reconquered city of Jerusalem in 11th century BCE from the Jebusites. Bible describes the city as heavily fortified with strong city wall. The city ruled by King David or Ir David is City of David. King Solomon extended city wall 440 BCE in Persian period and Nehemiah returned from Babylon to rebuilt wall. In 41–44 CE, Agrippa the king of Judea built new city Third Wall. Romans, Greeks, Muslims occupied Jerusalem. In 7th Century 637 CE under second caliph, Umar Ibn al-Khattab he annexed Islamic Arab Empire, granted inhabitants assurance treaty in siege of Jerusalem. Ancient Biblical prophecies to the church in Jerusalem was, “a poor, just powerful man” will rise as protector and ally to the Christians of Jerusalem. Sophronius wrote Umar, great warrior led austere life fulfilled that prophecy. Patriarch of Alexander and Eutychius said Umar paid visit to Church of Holy Sepulchre and sat in courtyard. At time for prayer he left the church and prayed outside compound, to avoid future generations of Muslims using his prayer there as a pretext for converting the church into a mosque. Eutychius adds Umar decree handed to the Patriarch prohibited the Muslims gathering in prayer at the site. In 1099, Jerusalem captured by Western Christian army of First Crusade remain in their hands until recapture by Arab Muslims led by Saladin October 2, 1187, he summoned Jews permitted to resettle in city. In 1219 walls of city was razed by Mu’azzim Sultan of Damascus. In 1229 by treaty with Egypt Jerusalem came into hands of Frederick ll of Germany. In 1239 rebuilt wall demolished again by Daud emir of Kerak. In 1243, Jerusalem came again under control of Christians so walls repaired. The Kharezmian Tartars took city in 1244 so Sultan Malik al-Muattam razed walls, rendered defenseless. Dealt heavy blow to city’s status in living history.

Suleiman in 1530 had the current walls of the Old City rebuilt in 1535–42 by the Ottoman Turkish. The walls stretch for approximately 4.5 km (2.8 miles), and rise to a height of 5 to 15 metres (16.4–49 ft), with a thickness of 3 metres (10 feet) at base of wall. The Old City walls contain 35 towers, 15 in more exposed northern wall. Suleiman’s wall had six gates and a 7th New Gate, was added in 1887; several other, older gates walled up over the centuries. The Golden Gate rebuilt and reopened by Suleiman’s architects walled up. Number of gates increased after addition of New Gate in 1887 a smaller 8th Tanners Gate opened for visitors after discovery but unsealed during excavations in 1990s. The sealed historic gates consist of the 4 partially preserved double Golden Gate eastern wall and Single, Triple, Double Gates in the southern wall. Several other gates discovered by archaeologists of traces remaining of the Gate of the Essenes on Mount Zion, gate of Herod’s royal palace south of the citadel and remains of what 19th-century explorers identified as the Gate of the Funerals (Bab al-Jana’iz) or of al-Buraq (Bab al-Buraq) south of the Golden Gate. Until 1887 the gates closed before sunset and opened at sunrise. As indicated these gates known by variety names in exist in the different historical periods by different communities. img746666Like GraecoRoman influences Islamized Jerusalem transformation of city occurs 3 times in history. The first of Jerusalem influence by Umar ibn Al-Khattab in 638 CE. The 2nd Islamization after the fall of Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and 3rd by Ayybiud rule in late 12th century by dominant Islamic culture of Mamluk and Ottoman rule. Ottoman era, turned Jerusalem multi-cultural predominantly Jewish during late 19th – 20th century. And Jordan’s annexations of West Bank of Jerusalem became Arabized. Islamic texts on city’s cosmological significance plays central role in Islamic belief. This began with Muhammad’s instruction to his followers to observe the qibla facing Jerusalem during daily prostrations in prayer. After 16 months the direction of prayer changed to Mecca in present-day Saudi Arabia. Jerusalem’s role in Islam rose 682 CE as Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr  rebelled against Damascus Islamic rule, conquered Mecca preventing pilgrims from reaching Mecca.Model-of-Ancient-Jerusalem.jpg

View of Jerusalem with Haram al Sharif. Jerusalem is not mentioned by name in Quran but in Islamic literature, Hadith as the place of Muhammad ascension to heavenly sanctuary. Arab historian and biographer of Muhammad, Al-Waqidi, mentioned al-Aqsa as one of two located in the village of The-Gi’irranah between Mecca and Ta’if. The identification of Al Aqsa with Jerusalem came by Umayyad Caliphate in the late 7th century.

1st Jerusalem Caliphate

In 638 Islamic Caliphate in Jerusalem by Arab conquest, Jews were allowed back into the city. The majority population of Jerusalem during Arab conquest was Christian. The Jewish Palestine population 300,000-400,000 inhabitants. After cultural Arabization, Islamization took place so adopted Arabic language and conversion of local population to Islam. Muslim scholars, including Mujir ad-Dib, al-Suyuti, al-Muqaddasi mosque was reconstructed and expanded by the caliph Abd al-Malik in 690 with Dome of the Rock. The project on Temple Mount, turned complex into Haram al-Sharif and Abd al-Malik replaced slipshod structure described by Arculf into the sheltered structure enclosing qibla. Jewish background living history was damaged by these construction to ‘rebuild’ Solomon’s Temple or Mihrab Dawud. Grabar and Busse claim was Islamic legitimization for Dome of Rock. Al-miraj tradition transferred to rock later. Islamic tradition from converted rabbi Kaab al Ahbar states Ayrusalaim Jerusalem Rock means Temple and God made David King of Children of Israel.IMG_20170601_174645

Independence2017AUnder Rashidun Caliphate the treaty to dwell together side by side was agreed. Rashidun caliph Umar ibn al- Khattab signed treaty with Christian Patriarch Sophronius assuring him Jerusalem’s Christian Holy places and population will be protected under Muslim rule.  When led to pray at Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest site for Christians, the caliph Umar declined to pray in the church not to establish precedent to be exploited later to convert church into a mosque. He prayed outside the church, where Mosque of Umar (Omar) stands to this day, opposite entrance to Church of Holy Sepulchre. According to Gaullic Bishop Arculf who lived in Jerusalem 679 to 688, the Mosque of Umar was a rectangle wooden structure built over ruins accommodating 3,000 worshipers.oldcity

Under Umayyad Caliphate

The Umayyad caliph constructed Dome of the Rock late 7th century. The 10th century historian al-Muqaddasi writes Abd al-Malik built shrine in Jerusalem to compete with monumental churches.  So in 400 years Jerusalem’s prominence diminished as Arab powers in region interfered for control. Under Fatimid Caliphate in 1099, expelled the native Christian population before Jerusalem conquered by Crusaders created the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Early June 1099 Jerusalem’s population declined from 70,000 to less than 30,000.

2nd Islamized Jerusalem

Under the Ayyubid dynasty

In 1187, the city was wrested from the Crusaders by Saladin who permitted Jews and Muslims to return and settle in the city. Saladin began constructing houses, markets, public baths, pilgrim hostels and religious endowments. In 13th century Jerusalem’s declined status village after city fell devalued Ayyubid rule by internecine struggles. Mamluk Sultanate in 1244 ransacked Jerusalem by Khwaresmian Tartars, decimated the city’s Christian population and drove out the Jews. The Khwarezmian Tartars were driven out by Ayyubids in 1247. From 1250 to 1517, Jerusalem was ruled by Mamluks, clashes occurred between Mamluks, crusaders, Mongols and area suffered earthquakes and black plague.

Jerusalem under Jordan 

Arab Legion destroyed synagogues yet Jordan mandated by UN to let Israeli Jews visit HOLY Sites refused access to them. Systematic destruction of Jewish Quarter includes ancient synagogues.  Under Jordan rule of East Jerusalem, all Israelis irrespective of religion forbade entering Old City and other Holy Sites. 40,000 and 50,000 tombstones of ancient Mount Olive’s cemetery desecrated. The Old City of Jerusalem, Jewish Quarter, destroyed in fightings. Tiferet Yisrael  Synagogue destroyed first, followed by destruction of Hurva Synagogue built in 1701 destroyed by Arabs in 1721 rebuilt in 1864. Israel retaliates destroying part of Mamila Muslim cemetary near the armistice line. Jordanians destroyed 56 Synagogues in Jerusalem, remaining synagogues used as toilets, stables and chicken coops. All Jewish inhabitants in parts of city occupied by Jordan and the residents of Old City Jewish Quarter expelled. Christian charities and various religious institutions prohibited from buying real estate in Jerusalem. And the Christian schools strictly regulated.

3rd Islamized Jerusalem

Arab Legion soldiers ruined Temple Mount Islamised for exclusive Muslim use. Original Israelite Jewish Holy Site is location of First and Second Temples the site subsequently location of Byzantine church and later the Mosque. Since the time of Muslim conquest Temple Mount public building’s elaborate mosaic floor, remains discovered by Temple Mount Sifting Project. In 682 CE, 50 years after Muhammad’s death, after Abd al Allah ibn -Zubayr rebelled against caliph of Damascus, conquered Mecca to stop the pilgrims to Hajj in Mecca. Abd al Mulik Umayyad Caliph responds creating new holy site Temple Mount in Jerusalem “Farthest Mosque alternative. Dome of the Rock Islamization of Temple Mount at end of 7 century, with construction of Dome of Rock in early 690s by Al-Malik was built on original Foundation Stone site of the historic Jewish Temple. This was built at southern end of Mount in 8th-century. Entire period of the Muslim conquest until capture of Jerusalem in 1099, various structures built on Mount includes memorial sites and gates. From 13th-century, Muslims gained control of city, built projects in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount to further establish city’s Islamic character. After conquest of the city by Saladin, non-Muslims permitted to set foot on Temple Mount. Al-Aqsa Mosque was built-in the early Umayyad period of rule. Architectural historian K. A.C.Cresswell refers to testimonymony of Arculf Gallic monk, pilgrimage in 679–82, notes the second caliph of Umar ibn al-Khattab erected a quadrangular building for a capacity on Haram ash-Sharif. Arculf visits Palestine in reign of Muawiyah ordered structure by Umar.

1948 to 1967 Jerusalem

Islamised Jerusalem by the Arab Legion soldiers ruins Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue, destroyed Temple Mount antiquities from 1995–2001. Islamic Waqf carried out extensive construction work to build biggest mosque in region of Marwani mosque capacity of 10,000 worshippers area 5,000 square meters. Unsupervised construction means Waqf obliterated the antiquities at Solomon’s stables section of Temple Mount. Herod structure was converted into a mosque. The structure stones were stripped of its original surface. At eastern Hulda gate, the Waqf destroyed original Herodian ornamentation and later plastered them and painted them over. Tens of truck loads of dirt were dumped into Kidron Walley. Thousands of artifacts from the First Temple period rescued in Temple Mount Sifting Project. Findings included 1000 ancient coins, Israelite bullas with ancient Hebrew inscriptions 10,000 year old tools, blade, scraper, Hasmonean, Ptolemaic and Herodian artifacts and ancient stones with signs of the Second Temple destruction and other important artifacts. Waqf justified actions on site “mosque from time of Adam and Eve” rejecting Jewish living history. In 1980 proposed Old City listed as UN Heritage added to List in 1981. In 1982, Jordan request addeds to List of world heritage centre in danger. UN opposed request at first noting Jordan government had no standing to make a nomination and that consent of Israeli government would be required since it controlled Jerusalem. 2011, 2016 UN made East Jerusalem a “part of occupied Palestinian territory yet status of Jerusalem not resolved in permanent status negotiations.” Today Jerusalem matters as never before in living history. God Chose Jerusalem HIS HOLY CITY TO DWELL PERMANENTLY. The Living history of Jerusalem CONFIRMS this City means a lot to God Almighty. Conflicts over Jerusalem will finally be resolved when God TAKES BACK HIS LAND AS PATENT LAWFUL OWNER TO SETTLE PHYSICALLY ON PERFECT EARTH. AFTER ARMAGEDDON JESUS CHRIST RULES FOREVER AND EVER. So antiChrist desolation sacrilege destroyed and HOLY of Holies restored all people join Israel to bring holiness and salvation to the whole world. Israel is God’s connecting point through God’s prophets and Messiah Yeshua Jesus Christ. The Messiah Era will bring total PEACE and end to all conflicts and wars. All people will live in PERFECT PEACE and LOVE God ALMIGHTY so FOCUS IS ON SOVEREIGN GOD to know God love, serve, and Worship God forever.  This fulfills holiness of all people in Christ and Jewish people pray for Coming Messiah and God’s salvation in Hebrew, Yeshuah יְשׁוּעָה every day. Jews say in daily prayers, “Every day and all day long we hope for Yeshua’s salvation.” In Thirteen Principles of the Faith, pray: “I await His Coming every day to Israel Jerusalem. Psalms 29:11 says The LORD give strength to HIS people! The LORD BLESS HIS people with PEACE in Yeshua Prince of PEACE! Pray for salvation of Jews and all people who wait with longing daily for the Coming of Messiah again. So salvation is near, right at your door for Revelation 22:2 testifies, “Surely Jesus is Coming soon.” Amen.

WHO DIVIDES JERUSALEM?

1f7d0e9ba6ff1f67a15673bf8a2bfae5.jpgJerusalem is mentioned 800 times in the Bible and was divided many times in the past. Jerusalem means “City of Peace,” but was destroyed, rebuilt, conquered, and re-conquered more times than any other city in living history. Jerusalem a city in Israel for several years divided between Israel and Jordan with the Old City on the Jordan side. In 1967, the Six-Day War led to the reuniting of the city under Israeli sovereignty. U.S. backed peace process seeks to split the city once again to divide Jerusalem so contentious issue in Middle East peace talks. Israel  maintains Jerusalem, eternal undivided capital. Palestinians want eastern part for the capital of a future state. Sadly Jerusalem will be divided according to the Word of God in Matthew 24:15 and Daniel 11&12. The attempt to RESTORE GOD’S HOLY TEMPLE MOUNT according to Daniel 9:27 to remove antiChrist’s  sacrilegious desolation desecration by a 7 year peace treaty causes Armageddon war.  Only when the children of Israel cry out to God then time comes for God to make HIS Move because God hears their groanings God Remembers HIS COVENANT with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob in Exodus 2:24 and delivers them as God did through Moses. God will send Moses again to help deliver Israel from oppression.  Circumstances cause God to act to carry out HIS purposes fulfilling HIS promises. So if suffering some sort of bondage or pain for what seems a very long time we can rest assured God hears our cries. HE remembers covenant in HIM through our Messiah Yeshua, providing a way out of spiritual bondage and into our inheritance if we accept Yeshua. God is TRUE to all HIS promises yet all still need to keep crying out to YAHWEH in Jesus Name for HIS deliverance waiting in faith and hopeful expectation to move on our behalf in spiritual or physical earthly afflictions.JerusalemCall Logo with mission-01.jpgGod is not deaf or aloof to our suffering HIS ARM is not too short to save. Bible in Matthew 5:11-12 says, “Blessed are you when others revile, persecute and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets before you. So righteous cry out and the LORD hears them; HE delivers them from all their troubles says Psalm 34:17. The antiChrist  peace agreement with Israel will see the Temple Mount divided between Jews and Gentiles. This suggest Jerusalem will be divided as part of that agreement. The Bible says a reed like a measuring rod is used to measure temple of God and the altar with its worshipers. But excludes outer court not measured because it is given to Gentiles. They will trample on the HOLY CITY for 42 months in Revelation 11:1-2. The Restricted Temple Mount for 19 years divided before 6 days war wants the further division of Jerusalem. The forces of antiChrist will invade and capture whole of Jerusalem as God gathers all nations to Jerusalem to fight against city to be captured, houses ransacked and women violated. Half of the city will go into exile but rest of people not taken from city says Zechariah 14:2. Bible prophecy predict attempts of dividing Jerusalem in Zechariah 12:2-3. God will make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. So Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, all the nations of the earth will gather against her yet God makes Jerusalem an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move it injure themselves. Jerusalem concerns all nations of world against Israel who want God’s Holy City divided. Prophecy says attempts to do so are unsuccessful so effort against Jerusalem Makes God YAHWEH intervene to save Israel. jerusalemzechariah12.jpgIn Zechariah 14:2 Jerusalem is attacked is final battle before the Lord returns. “I will gather all nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women violated. Half of the city will go into exile, the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.” This confirms prior to last battle Jerusalem is undivided. Based on prophecies hard to believe current talks to divide Jerusalem actually happens. If it does, Zechariah’s prophecy says it will be temporary. Jesus literally returns to earth to Mount of Olives in Jerusalem in Zechariah 14:4 at conclusion of Great Tribulation. The nations on earth will be judged for their conduct towards Jewish nation and for dividing of God’s Holy Land. God, will gather nations to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And puts them on trial for what they did to MY inheritance, MY people Israel, they scattered my people among nations and divide MY land says Joel 3:2. God destroys the destroyers of Jerusalem spoil taken from Israel, divided land restored by the LORD God YAHWEH.  Redeemed Israel in the Past, Present and Future. God’s promises to Moses accomplished four redemptive acts: God brought out Israelites from suffering in Egypt, rescued from slavery, redeemed from oppression with outstretched arm takes them HIS own nation (I AM). Four promises or these Four Expressions of Redemption are commemorated during Passover Seder meal with four cups of wine. Acts of deliverance in Exodus 6:6–7, God used following Hebrew words:

Hotzeiti (הוֹצֵאתִי) is I will bring out;
Hitzalti (הִצַּלְתִּי), means I will rescue;
Ga’alti (גָאַלְתִּי) means I will redeem;
Lakachti (לָקַחְתִּי), means I will take.
Jewish men wear tallitot prayer shawls pray with tefillin (phylacteries) and the siddurim (Jewish prayer books). So God  makes a fifth expression of redemption. HE promises to bring (heveiti הֵבֵאתִי)  HIS people back into their own land. I will bring [heveiti] Jews to the land I SWORE with uplifted Hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I give to you as your possession I AM the LORD in Exodus 6:8. So 2 thousand years ago, Jewish people lived in Promised Land, fifth expression commemorated during Seder the fifth cup of wine. God rescued Jewish people from exile back into their Land. Fifth cup represents the complete Redemption through Messiah Yeshua. It is this fifth cup at Passover Seder, called the Cup of Elijah, left untouched for the Prophet Elijah expected to return to the earth to herald the coming of Messiah and His Messianic REIGN.
Five silver cups filled to brim with red wine during the Passover Seder, meal commemorates the Exodus redemption. The largest Cup of Elijah is untouched throughout the meal. Elijah and Moses are expected to come back soon to Israel to evangelise GOD’S people. God worked great salvation miracles through Elijah who never died and raptured alive in GOD’S golden chariot. Will collaborate with Moses who never entered Canaan promised land to help save countless multitudes in the end-times. When God speaks HIS Words are done as HE said HE will always do, be ready for God.

ad8fa636c3a5c1d8d385177339776f88For God will gather the nations against Jerusalem to battle and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled but the rest of the people will not be cut of from city. Isaiah 13:6 states, Wail, for the day of the LORD is near! It will come as destruction from Almighty God. Isaiah 13:9 says Behold, the day   of the LORD is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger to make the land desolate And He will exterminate sinners from it. In Joel 2:1, Bible says blow trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on God’s HOLY mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming surely it is near says Zechariah 14:14. Judah will fight at Jerusalem and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered, gold, silver, garments in great abundance. The invaders will take spoil and rejoice for invading GOD’S people however, in the midst of their celebrations God will take vengeance on behalf of Israel. The attacks are to shake both the Jews and Gentiles in the whole world that God is restoring the earth as He planned originally. The events warn people about REAL LIFE changes taking place globally. GOD’S PLACES of RIGHTEOUSNESS and HONOUR will not be left or forsaken as God’s PRESENCE is ever before Israel.” Isaiah 4:5 says  the LORD creates upon every dwelling place of MOUNT ZION upon assemblies a cloud and smoke by day, and shining flaming fire by night for upon all the glory shall be DEFENCE. GOD’S GLORY, Jesus’ Glory, Children of God’s glory is not given to anyone else. Recently God sent HIS CLOUD over the nation to protect them from attacks. So will soon send YESHUA Rock of Ages to crush all enemies forever in Jesus Name for ETERNAL PEACE.are-you-ready-for-end-times-2-638.jpg Although it seems these events centre around Jerusalem all nations are drawn into the conflict one way or another. Consequentially it is in the interest of everyone to make a right decision to be in the Good Book of God. Malachi 4:1 says, Behold the day is coming, burning like a furnace and all arrogant evildoers will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. Behold, the day of the LORD comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the middle. Joel 2:31 and Acts 2:20 says, the sun will be turned into darkness and moon into blood before the day of the Lord. Joel 3:14 says multitudes multitudes, in the valley of decision for day of the Lord YAHWEH. Malachi 4:5 says Behold, God will send Elijah and Moses the prophet before the Coming of the day of the Lord God. Through Moses, God preserves HIS people but plagues and judgments called makot in Hebrew destroy enemies. God PROVED HIS position as the One True God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, so the gods of Pharaoh, Egyptians had no power over YAHWEH’S people. During the endtimes Moses again brings deliverance to Israel but destruction to God’s enemies. Bible warns the world to watch out for the end events happening unfolding right before these generation. So ONLY WAY ever to be peace in the Middle East is if Yeshua Jesus the Sar Shalom Prince of Peace is reigning in hearts and minds of the people and returns physically to live in Israel. So most crucial thing to do is belong to God personally and be saved in Jesus Name.

STAND WITH GOD’S ISRAEL

maxresdefault-1

Jesus warned about end time events now unfolding in Israel concerning Jerusalem affecting the whole world in the Bible. So the world is changing fast towards final stages of Jesus’ predictions in the Bible. Due to the world’s refusal to repent God Almighty YAHWEH decided to force an action upon the whole world through Israel. By gathering together to form alliances targeting Israel, God Himself will intervene to save Israel. But wrath of God’s punishment takes place alongside the air rescue by Jesus Rapture. Then the Great Tribulation endtime is unleashed to fulfil the predictions in the Bible. Son of man, record this date, this very date, because king of Babylon laid siege to Jerusalem this very day in Ezekiel 24:2. On Tenth of Tevet on this day 2000 years ago, Yeshua Jesus celebrated this Biblical holiday of the 10th of Tevet, a Fast Day in Judaism. So  at dawn, observant Jewish people begin fasting, mourning, repenting as Asara B’Tevet the Fast of Tevet began Tenth of Tevet is the day the Jewish people remember Jerusalem under siege. At this time people ask God to have mercy and FORGIVE mankind for all evil in the world. The whole world is going through a situation under siege by the turmoils taking place globally. Though Israel is often under siege all countries who resent the presence of Jewish people in the Holy Land are affected. And she is feeling under siege by her closest allies since passing of the UN Security Council resolution day before Hanukkah began. This resolution effectively declares the Kotel Western Wall and Jewish quarter in Jerusalem to be illegally occupied territory, along with all of East Jerusalem and Jewish settlements throughout Judea-Samaria. Since the wave of terror began on Yom Kippur in September 2015, Israelis have been under siege by attackers. Israel, and the Holy Land is bracing for attacks the question is what is going on? Individuals addressing matters together must pray to ask God to SHORTEN THE EVIL DAYS TO MAKE JERUSALEM A PRAISE to all the nations. Ask God to be in God ‘s Good Book of life as you pray daily for the PEACE OF JERUSALEM. Peaceful citizens love peace and a peaceful life of joy. For believers Yeshua Prince of Peace will give PEACE of God beyond human understanding. So pray for the peace of Jerusalem as this impacts world PEACE.

Sadly increasing attacks around the world, in several Middle Eastern countries are still under siege. They are persecuted in many ways including the sanctions and boycotts of anti Semitism propaganda. Consequence of rebellion against God and disobedience to His Word is the reason for these events happening. God repeatedly sent HIS prophets to warn HIS people to repent and follow His ways.  Sadly the warnings went unheeded so LORD GOD their FATHER sent word to them again and again by HIS messengers, because He had compassion on HIS people and on HIS dwelling place but they continually mocked messengers of God, despised HIS words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against HIS people, until there was no remedy in 2 Chronicles 36:1516. Peace for Israel means security for the whole world so stand with Israel to protect her right to exist   in territorial integrity. Israel is great outpost of God’s democracy in the world, marvelous example of what can be done so desert land transformed into oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security of reality of GOD’S KINGDOM on the earth says Martin Luther King, Jr. Yet constant financial pressure of defending attacks, threats of war due to worldwide BDS: Boycott, Divestment and the Sanctions movement Israel has the highest rate of poverty in the developed world. So most vulnerable especially the poor Holocaust survivors, tens of thousands live in deep poverty without enough money for food, shelter, and clothing. Do show them true Christian love before it is too late. Those who Bless Israel are BLESSED by God.


Jerusalem during this Holy day, Jewish people consider the consequences of rebellion against God and disobedience to His Word, though majority will not understand Yeshua Jesus paid the price for our sin. The day is near when God will pour out the Spirit of Grace on HIS people and they will understand Yeshua is the MESSIAH says Zechariah 12:10–14. According to Bible prophecy, that day, the fast of Tevet will be transformed into a festival of joy. This is what the LORD ALMIGHTY Says: ‘The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah.  Therefore love truth and peace in Zechariah 8:19. It is crucial each person makes a personal decision to belong to God in Christ to be saved. Believers in Yeshua can rejoice in the forgiveness of sins. In Christ we have redemption through His blood the Forgiveness of sins in accordance with the riches of God’s GRACE lavished on us in Ephesians 1:78. So On the Tenth of Tevet the Jewish people fast because of Siege of Jerusalem great tragedy caused by sin and rebellion. Please support Israel and help share the Good News in Israel on this fast day of Tevet so many will be helped to find a new beginning in the Lord and their mourning will turn to rejoicing. Jesus will rule the world from Jerusalem so get ready for His Coming.
Jesus coming soon
“Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell [shakan] among them.”  (Exodus 25:8; see also Exodus 40:34–35 and 1 Kings 8:11. This dwelling (shakan) forms related word Shekhinah, which is not found in the original Hebrew Bible, but it is used in rabbinic literature and Bible translations to describe the Lord’s Divine Presence. The Prophet Ezekiel witnessed departure of Divine Presence from Temple in Ezekiel 10:18–19. But he also saw the rebuilding of an eternal and permanent dwelling place of God on the Temple Mount in Holy City of Jerusalem. The GLORY of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east…  I heard someone speaking to me from inside the temple.  He said: ‘Son of man, this is the place of MY THRONE and the place for the soles of my feet.  This is where I will live among the Israelites forever in Ezekiel 43:4–7. Many peoples will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD in Isaiah 2:3. Hebrew prophets proclaimed in the last days, the exiles of Israel would return to the Promised Land and that the Temple would be rebuilt. And the Lord said, “Then the nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever in Ezekiel 37:28. After defeat of anti-Christ YAHWEH and Christ will walk about in Jerusalem. These Biblical  phenomenal end-time events are unfolding before our very eyes! So the question must be asked for whom is the next Temple really being built?
For centuries, the Jewish People have streamed to the Western Wall, which came to be known as the Wailing Wall, to lament the destruction of the Temple, to pray for the rebuilding of the Temple, to receive priestly blessings, and to repent.  The Prophetic Return to Israel and the Third Temple is at the centre of the conflict over the Temple Mount.  Some skeptics around the globe think God rejected the people of Israel and that Israel has been rebirthed by man alone.  We find in Scripture God never intends to reject HIS people forever, You Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend, you whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from remotest parts and said to you, ‘You are My servant, and I have chosen you and not rejected you says Isaiah 41:9. God always planned to bring the Jewish people back to the Land on His terms, not man’s.  And as prophets foretold the Jewish people are returning to the Holy Land from the four corners of the earth after 19 centuries of global exile: I will bring back my exiled people Israel and rebuild the ruined cities and live in them.  They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I Will Plant Israel in their own land never again to be uprooted from the land I gave them according to Amos 9:14–15.
 IMG_20161125_074239.jpg
Not only are the exiles of Israel returning to the Promised Land, but preparations to build Third Temple are progressing through efforts of Temple Institute and the Temple Mount Faithful Movement. God, Jesus, saints and heaven is coming to dwell in Jerusalem. So these things going on triggers conflicts because thought of demolition of one structure to be replaced by another causes anger and rage among the parties involved. History shows that both feel strongly entitled to exactly the same spot of plot of land of Mount Zion so defend it rigorously. The conflict stretches to many generations so each side is convinced is absolutely right in the matter. This is when Elijah comes back physically to confront people again to challenge them to choose to follow the REAL LIVING GOD TO CALL UPON HIM TO ANSWER BY FIRE. The Spiritual battle stage set is being prepared to decide once and for all TRUE OWNER OF MOUNT ZION. As in the Carmel Contest the ARMAGEDDON battle frontier is being prepared for the final count down so the RIGHTFUL PATENT OWNER GOD to claim it. These are the days of Elijah when Righteousness is being RESTORED so Elijah and Moses as the two witnesses will join 144,000 male Jews to evangelise Israel. All parties must call upon God for final verdict conclusion of this matter to settle dispute over Mount Zion once and for all. Gideon once destroyed and erased groves of his forefathers in Obedience to God. He had the audacity to stand up boldly to sacrifice sacred cow requested by God on the New Altar for YAHWEH. Gideon entered into a New Covenant so his people were not amused. They wanted to kill him for obeying God but Gideon gave them a wise advice, he told them leave the action to their god to fight for them. Like King David, Elijah, Moses and Gideon knew the battle is the Lord’s to fight with the Heavenly hosts to defend His people. Israel is not fighting flesh and blood but principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places. This is the reason behind what is happening and God has warned about these events taking place. The whole revolves around Israel and God Said, nobody on earth will survive if HE DOES NOT SHORTEN THE EVIL DAYS. YAHWEH Said, Give HIM NO REST DAY OR NIGHT UNTIL HE MAKES JERUSALEM A PRAISE TO THE NATIONS.Stand with Israel

Without question, the most important political and prophetic issue of our day is: what we should do in regards to the nation of Israel? It is a crucial question that each of us faces. It is a crucial issue in capitals and boardrooms and churches and homes across the globe. It is the great and vital choice that faces you and me today. God is looking for people to stand with Israel. The governments around the world are turning against the Jewish state and putting themselves and their people on a pathway to judgment and destruction. I wrote Stand with Israel to open the pages of Scripture and unveil the truth behind the news that makes the headlines. I believe every friend of Israel needs to read this book and share this crucial truth with others. Chapters include:

  • Israel Is God’s Dream
  • Jerusalem’s Spiritual Significance

NOAH’S ARK ON MT. ARARAT

The arkship of Noah’s Flood is found in Turkey. Noah saved his family and pairs of animals from the Flood, according to biblical account in Genesis 6–8. A small bivalve mollusc with boat-shaped shell is found in Mediterranean off Atlantic coasts of Africa and southern Europe. In 1872 George Smith a bank­note engraver assistant in British Museum, discovered story of the Flood the same as in Book of Genesis inscribed on a cuneiform tablet made of clay recently excavated at far-distant Nineveh in present-day Iraq. According to version idol worshippers, thought it was the gods of Babylon who wiped out all mankind through death by water. As in the Bible, the survival of all living things was effected by a single man Noah and his family of 8 people. A Dutch creationist built full-size replica of Noah’s Ark, made according to the blueprint set out by God in the Bible. 3345748822_f632de81feArk6IMG_20170529_111335Johan Huibers spent 3 years and more than £1.03million constructing gigantic wooden boat. He set sight on sailing in the world like Noah experienced. This feat of true biblical proportions inspired by a dream Mr Huibers had 20 years ago in which he saw part of his native Netherlands submerged in a flood like one featured in Book of Genesis. This boat museum now has set sail around the world. Exactly as Jesus said as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be during Coming of the Son of man Jesus Christ in the end-times. Accept Jesus as your Saviour and pray for family, friends, loved ones and enemies to be saved in JESUS NAME!!! Noah’s Ark Ministries International, Hong Kong documentary team found Noah’s wooden structure believed to be the Biblical boat. Noah’s structure carbon dates to 4,800 years, found at 13,000ft above sea level.20190921_085136.jpg
Explorers think they have found Noah's ArkExplorers solved location of Noah’s Ark
Inside the alleged wooden structureExplorers found wooden planks, nails and even staircase inside the structure. On, 15th April 2017 the Historians, and archeologists clerics who sought proof for Noah’s ark existence for centuries found conclusive evidence in Turkey.

“We think it is 99.9% that this is it.”

Yeung Wing-cheung, explorer

Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker who helped discover the remains, said: “We saw Noah’s Ark so think is 99.9%.” Team member Man-fai Yuen added: “The structure is partitioned into different spaces. “We believe wooden structure we entered is the exact same structure recorded in historical accounts.”Noahs-ark-Viua-Pinterest.jpgd35b21385599b2614e689328df4a68f9.jpgNoah's Arkdownloadfile-43.jpg

The structure was found on Mount AraratNoah’s structure was found under snow and debris on Mount Ararat in Turkey. Another team member, Panda Lee, said: “I saw a structure built with plank-like timber. “Each plank was about eight inches wide. I could see tenons, proof of ancient construction predating the use of metal nails. “We walked about 100 metres to another site. I could see broken wood fragments embedded in a glacier, and some 20 metres long.” The team said the structure had several compartments, wooden beams and discovered what seems to be wooden walls, doors, nails and staircases. The experts say evidence of biblical flood ship was 4 kilometres up the side of a mountain 4,800 years ago, shows a substantial geological evidence of flood around the world narrated by many people in folklore and in documents.

 

ISRAEL’S JEWISH PALESTINE

bmand.gifPalestinian Authority is preparing to sue Great Britain in international court over a letter written 99 years ago. The letter is one of the most prophetically significant documents written outside Scripture known as Balfour Declaration. Written in 1917 in closing days of World War I, by British Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur James Balfour expressed nation open to establishing a Jewish Palestine homeland in Israel. We are a little more than a year from 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. The letter said, in part, “His Majesty’s government view is favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for Jewish people, and will use best endeavour to facilitate achievement of this object. At this time Jewish nation lived together in peace in unity in homeland back from captivity exile. Balfour Declaration planted seeds for state of Israel launched a stream of Jewish migration to the British mandate in Palestine. One of key consequences of World War I was transfer of the control Holy Land from Islamic Ottoman Turk Empire to Great Britain. This British Mandate and White Papers so delayed it took 31 years to implement to fulfill prophecy: I will plant Israel in their own land, never again uprooted from the land I HAVE GIVEN them, SAYS the LORD your God in Amos 9:15. 1922, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain to oversee establishment of a Jewish nation in the Land of Israel.bmand.gifConsequentially Britain having formally recognized historical connection of the Jewish people with Holy land Canaan in Palestine, organised all plans so British government can help. Under pressure from Arabs turned their back on their commitment to Jews began implement anti-Zionist measures. Jssued the White Papers of 1930 and 1939 and restricted immigration to Palestine and purchase of land there by Jews. Was particularly devastating as Nazi Holocaust raged in Europe. Then Ben-Gurion resisted the White Paper policies and encouraged increased Jewish settlement activity in the Land, and urged his people: We need to live as the State in the Land of Israel, and we need to act as such until we will be, so that we will be the State in the Land of Israel…. We are standing before a major and tragic fight with the English government, but on this front we will not yield nor flinch even a bit. (Knesset) On final day of mandate years of Balfour’s letter for Jews United Nations’ resolution allowed return to homeland. Ben-Gurion declared Israel independent so granted Jewish people homeland recommended enabled Israel to again declare independence NATION.middle2This would not have happened had it had not been for God-Ordained letter. Those who wish to see Israel wiped off map understand all historical facts well. It explains lawsuit announced by their Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas. God Ordained promised land HIMSELF. Granted homeland Israel came under attack yet Israel is PROTECTED BY GOD. PA’s Foreign Minister, Riyad al-Malki, declared United Kingdom is responsible for all “Israeli crimes” committed since end of the British mandate in 1948. The lawsuit is not likely to get far or to have any effect it highlights what Israel fights against. Voices from around the world call upon Israel to make peace with the Palestinians. But, Palestinian leadership continues to demonstrate it prefers to turn back clock to times against Israel. Strategic positioning of GOD’S VOICE, Supercedes all alternative propagandist media. God IS Wisely Powerfully daily PROVING HIMSELF Strong combating lies about Israel to encourage support for Israel among Christians. Remember, all who partner with Israel help deliver vital medical humanitarian, Spiritual aid to oppressed Jewish communities in key points of need in world. God Says all who BLESS Israel Blessed by God, those who curse Cursed by GOD HIMSELF. 1947mapaGOD ACTIVATES THE CONSEQUENCES  HIMSELF to PROTECT Israel Nation. On ninth day of the Hebrew month Av is a day of great sadness and mourning for Jews year of solemn observance begins at sundown. The date marks destruction of First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar and the Second Temple by the Romans. On same day in 132 AD great massacre of Jews by the Roman soldiers in crushing Bar Kochba revolt. Israel mourns other tragic events that happened near 9th of Av including Jews then expelled from England, July 18, 1290 (Av 9, 5050). Jews expelled from France on July 22, 1306 (Av 10, 5066). Jews were expelled from Spain on July 31, 1492 (Av 7, 5252). On August 2nd, 1941 (Av 9, 5701), the SS commander Heinrich Himmler formally received approval from Nazi Party for “The Final Solution.” Almost one-third of world’s Jewish population captured and killed by the time World War Two ended.GOD INCREASINGLY sees anti-Semitism and July 23, 1942 (Av 9, 5702), mass deportation of Jews began from Warsaw Ghetto, en route to the death camps at Treblinka. AMIA bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, and killing 85, injuring 300 on July 18, 1994; (10 Av, 5754). The solemn day of mourning and remembrance and a day of challenge for those of who love God’s Chosen people to reach out in love and compassion to do all that we can to bless to encourage be heavily involved helping Israel.1949mapaCompassion outreaches show love in action. So much more could be done, in Israel and in Ukraine to help meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the poor of House of Israel. Everyday Wonderful Mount Zion stories told of the real true Christians who love Jews, took risks to save them. Everyday are shown love in action by generosity and compassion on poor Holocaust survivors. But needs more to be done with your help. Please be generous to Israel as you can to save OVERWHELMINGLY CONSTANT attack of Israel PROTECTED BY GOD. So Israel is under siege NOT FORGOTTEN by God for a season punished whole Nation and WILL be RESTORED BY GOD HIMSELF. GOD WILL DESCEND ON EARTH IN THE NEW JERUSALEM CITY WHICH COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN. The destiny and the punishment of Israel is JUST PILOT PROJECT BY GOD that will be Meted by God after Israel is first dealt with. Those mistakes affecting Israel unrelated to non- Jews do read Bible to see bigger picture. GOD’S JUDGEMENT is on the whole earth of those rejecting Christ. Remember if FIRSTBORN SON Jesus and Firstborn Son Israel was not spared the suffering pain God deals with the world, persistent against Israel existence.bmand.gifThe SUPER strategic position of GOD’S VOICE, on ninth day of Hebrew month Av is a day of great sadness mourning for Jewish people. This is solemn day of mourning too and remembrance day of challenge for those of who Love God’s Chosen people to see and learn to reach out to Israel in LOVE and compassion to to bless and encourage them. Some Jews already heavily involved in outreaches show God’s love in action. Your gift will be Arms of God’s LOVE wrapped tight around a precious Jewish person. Please send generous gift to increase efforts to bless descendants of Abraham. Nations activate Genesis 12:3 blessing of God’s Covenant in your life, families, churches pray for the NATION Israel’s peace.

GOD’S WRITING ON A WALL

1cd2899a3484aab2a96d2ff009790f51Bible in Daniel 5 says king Belshazzar made a great feast for a thousand of his lords, nobles and drank wine presence of a thousand.While drinking the wine Belshazzar commands to bring gold and the silver vessels Nebuchadnezzar took from temple in Jerusalem. The king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines to drink from them. They brought the gold vessels from temple of the house of God in Jerusalem; and the king and his lords, his wives, and concubines drank from them. They drank wine praised gods of gold and silver, bronze and iron, wood and stone. 5In the same hour the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace; and the king saw the part of the hand writing. Then the king’s countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so the joints of his hips were loose and his knees knocked against each other. 08-august-10-2014-daniel-45-gods-control-of-history-30-638The king cried loudly to bring in the astrologers, Chaldeans and soothsayers. The king spoke to wise men of Babylon, “Whoever reads this writing, and tells me its interpretation, shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around his neck; and he shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.” Now all the king’s wise men came, but they could not read the writing, or make known to king its interpretation. 9 King Belshazzar was greatly troubled, his countenance changed and his lords astonished. 10The queen, because of the words of the king and his lords, came to the banquet hall. The queen said ‘O king live forever! Do not let your thoughts trouble you or let your countenance change.11 There is a man in the kingdom who has Spirit of Holy God. In days of your father his understanding and wisdom unlike wisdom of gods was found in him. King Nebuchadnezzar your father made him chief of magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, soothsayers. 12 Has excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpretes dreams, solves riddles, explains enigmas. Daniel named Belteshazzar be called give interpretation.La-escritura-en-la-pared-1God’s Writing on the wall was explained to the king 13 by Daniel brought before the king. The king said to Daniel, “Are you Daniel one of the captives of Judah my father the king brought from Judah? 14 I heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you. 15 Now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing and make known to me its interpretation, but they could not give the interpretation of the thing. 16 I have heard you can give the interpretation and explain enigmas. If read the writing and make known to me interpretation will be clothed in purple and chain of gold around your neck and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.”mene-mene-tekel-parsin-fingers-kingdom-divided-christian-wallpaper-hd_1920x1200.jpg17 Daniel answered and said before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him interpretation. 18 O king, of Most High God king Nebuchadnezzar your father kingdom had majesty, glory and honour. 19 And because of majesty God gave him over all peoples, nations, languages trembled was feared. Whom he wished he executed; who he wished, he kept alive; who he wished he set up and whomever he wished, he put down. 20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his spirit was hardened in pride, he was deposed from his throne so God took his glory from him. 21 Then he was driven from sons of men, his heart was made like beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys. They fed him with grass like oxen, his body wet with dew of heaven till he knew the Most High God Rules in kingdoms of men, and appoints over it whomever He chooses.520cycles.jpg22 “But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart although you knew this. 23 And you lifted yourself against the LORD of heaven. They brought the vessels of HIS HOUSE to you and your lords, your wives and concubines and drunk wine from them. And you praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or know. God who holds your breath in HIS HAND owns all your ways you did not GLORIFY. 24 HIS FINGERS, HAND WROTE ON WALL. 25 “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. 26 Interpretation of words are, MENE: God numbered your kingdom and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom divided is given to Medes and Persians  29 Belshazzar gave command and they clothed Daniel with purple, put chain of gold around his neck by proclamation is made third ruler in kingdom.
