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.

HOW TO EAT BETTER

 james wong

This interesting and educational book by James Wong reveals the facts behind the nutrition hiding within our garden produce, with facts backed by science rather than fiction. In it, James Wong reveals not only the best produce to eat to obtain certain vitamins but also the best way in which to eat them, from lightly cooked plum tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil to how to prepare a chilli. James Wong tells us a bit about his past and to find out more about what How To Eat Better is all about.c447140e6c24fc011bf5faa2e07464f7

James Wong is often asked what first made him interested in plants. In fact he gets asked this question so often by taxi drivers, journalists and mates down the pub so comes to expect it as a given. Funnily enough, this kind of question is one my football-mad brother has never, ever been asked about his passion. So it seems almost as if dedicating your life to studying what many non-geeks see as just a leafy, green backdrop to everyday life is considered surprising. Yet to him is a lifelong plant obsessive, what I find surprising is quite the opposite. I just can’t understand why everyone isn’t as fascinated by plants as him. Whether we are aware of it or not, plants still underpin the food we eat, medicines we take, the air we breathe. Everything from our basic anatomy, to our most deeply hard-wired instincts are direct result of collaboration with the plants. Therefore understanding plants is key to understanding who we are. james wong

James Wong How To Eat Better – published by Mitchell Beazley, £20 http://www.octopusbooks.co.uk

How does Wong gather research for your books to ensure reliable facts?
Well, starts by trawling through peer-reviewed studies in scientific journals to find promising leads. Of course, sound science is all about reproducibility, this does require quite an exhaustive search and some pretty late nights! So findings from one study needs to be reflected by a good number of other papers before it can be deemed reliable. Scientists look at a body of research as a whole when drawing conclusions not just individual papers. For last two books the number of papers read is well into thousands, which is why it takes so long to research and write each new book. Always works with other experts to peer review all the findings and give much-needed second or third pair of eyes to query and fact check. For example, previously worked with the RHS heads of horticulture and science to review the entire text of his gardening books. For book worked with a brilliant doctor in nutritional science.James Wong

The most surprising interesting thing learnt writing How To Eat Better?
Perhaps the most surprising discover was something quite counterintuitive and it was about coffee. As a scientist used to often hearing claims coffee is disastrous for your mood, heart and maybe a risk factor for cancer assumed they must be true. However when you actually look at the objective, scientific evidence, not only are the claims poorly supported, but in fact quite the opposite may be true. In fact coffee is one of the richest dietary sources of a group of naturally-occurring compounds called polyphenols believed to prevent a wide range of so many degenerative diseases, contributing up to 50% of  antioxidants in the famously healthy Mediterranean diet. Thank you science.james wong

Do you always employ own tips and tricks in kitchen as a chef?
A lifelong obsession with food and come from a family of people who worked in restaurants, so absolutely! Inherently quite lazy though, so included tips from the research thought were genuinely practical and accessible for real people. For example, storing tomatoes on the counter is just as easy as popping them in the fridge but gives you measurably more flavour, phytonutrients. Serving them with avocados can improve the absorbability of antioxidant lycopene (believed to have cardio protective effects) by 400% too. Really needs very little excuse to eat more avocados! This book is not about obscure ingredients or restrictive diets. It’s just about taking the food you already love and making it even better. Personally tested all recipes in the book three times, which explains why many are based around shortcuts and cheats! Love of good food is from his Love of eating! Guesses when you are fascinated by plants this conspires to make you obsessive about food. On a recent filming trip in Japan spent long using the translate app on phone to find dishes that featured weird veg on every menu (hostas, bracken, ferns, cherry and oak leaves are the common foods there) colleagues ended up ordering without him every time.Screen-Shot-2017-04-12-at-11.45.11.png

Most important message to take from How To Eat Better?
Eating healthily in our society is often wrapped up in the notions of expense. Somehow food that costs more, sounds more exclusive or is tracked down from some far flung place is often thought to be instantly better for us. The research tells quite another story. In fact very often the cheapest, most accessible option can be better for you. Tinned tomatoes have twice the phytonutrient lycopene of fresh tomatoes. Frozen blueberries, despite being half the price, have the same level of antioxidants as fresh. Instant coffee also has twice the potentially heart-healthy polyphenols of ‘artisan brewed’ coffee. So empowering, especially at a time when many can simply not afford to fill their trolley with the latest ‘superfood’. The single best thing you can do to improve your diet is simply to eat more fruit and veg. Full stop. The tips and tricks researched might make the fruit and veg you love even better for you.

DIVIDE 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 the covenant we have 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 the city to be captured, the houses ransacked and women violated. Half of the city will go into exile but rest of the people not taken from city says Zechariah 14:2. Bible prophecy predicts the attempts of dividing Jerusalem outcome in Zechariah 12:2-3 and says, 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 unsuccessful as effort to gather against Jerusalem Makes God YAHWEH directly intervene to save Israel. jerusalemzechariah12.jpgIn Zechariah 14:2 Jerusalem being attacked is the final battle before the Lord returns. “I will gather all the 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, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.” This confirms that prior to that last battle Jerusalem will be undivided. Based on prophecies it is hard to believe the current talk about dividing Jerusalem will result in actually happening. But if it does, Zechariah’s prophecy says it will only 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 the Jewish nation and for dividing of God’s Holy Land. God, will gather nations and bring them to Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among nations and divide up my land says Joel 3:2. God destroys destroyers of Jerusalem so the spoil taken from Israel and divided land will be restored back again by the Lord God. So YAHWEH Redeems Israel in the Past, Present and Future. God’s promises to Moses accomplished four redemptive acts: God brought out the Israelites from their suffering in Egypt, rescued them from slavery, redeemed from oppression with  outstretched arm, and takes them as HIS own nation (am). So these four promises called the Four Expressions of Redemption traditionally commemorated during Passover Seder meal with four cups of wine. Each act of deliverance written in Exodus 6:6–7, God used the 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).God also 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 with a fifth cup of wine. God rescued Jewish people from exile bringing them 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 the brim with red wine during Passover Seder, meal commemorates the Exodus redemption. Largest Cup of Elijah remains 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 was raptured alive in GOD’S golden chariot. Will collaborate with Moses who never entered promised land to help save countless multitudes in the end-times. When God speaks Words it is done as HE said always so be ready.

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 these events happening and unfolding right before this generation. The ONLY WAY there will ever 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 the most crucial thing to do is belong to God personally and be saved in Jesus Name.

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.
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.”

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 even staircases.
Noah's ArkThe experts say the 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.

LAND DRINKS RAIN

5220.jpgDeuteronomy 11:11 says LAND DRINKS RAIN from HEAVEN as the LORD GOD Designed the earth to function to soak up excess rain. So all are to LOVE the LORD GOD and KEEP HIS INSTRUCTIONS and HIS STATUTES and HIS Judgments, and HIS Commandments always so it will be well with mankind. 2. And know this day I speak not with your children who do not know who did not see punishment of the LORD your GOD HIS GREATNESS, HIS MIGHTY HAND and HIS STRETCHED OUT ARM. 3. HIS MIRACLES and HIS ACTS HE DID in midst of Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to all his land. What HE DID to the army of Egypt, to their horses, and their chariots; how HE MADE the water of the Red Sea overflow and drown them as they pursued you so THE LORD GOD destroys them to this day. 5. And all HE did to you in the wilderness until you came into this place. 6. And what HE did to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, son of Reuben how the EARTH OPENED HER MOUTH, swallowed them up and with their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel.8507580644_d1fb9dfb51_z7. But your eyes have seen all the GREAT ACTS of the LORD GOD which HE DID. 8. Therefore you MUST KEEP ALL GOD’S Commandments to you this day, that you may be STRONG in the LORD GOD and go in and possess the land you are to go to and possess. 9. So you may PROLONG YOUR DAYS IN THE LAND the LORD GOD SWORE IN COVENANT to your fathers to give to them and their seed descendants the land that flows with milk and honey. 10. For the land you go to possess is not as land of Egypt from where you came out when you sowed your seed, watered it with your foot your garden of herbs. 11. The LAND you go to possess is a land of hills and valleys and DRINKS WATER OF THE RAIN of HEAVEN SO FERTILE AND YOU WILL NOT PHYSICALLY TOIL TO INCREASE ORCHARD YIELDS. The land naturally enriched with rainwater from heaven nurtures seeds and crops planted in season. So mankind is to work in tune with the LORD GOD’S ORIGINAL PURPOSE FOR THE LAND.3057AA5676AD86E6852EFF614ACBF2AA12. A LAND which the LORD your GOD CARES FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD GOD ARE ALWAYS UPON THE LAND, FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR EVEN TO  THE END OF THE YEAR. 13. And it shall come to pass, if you shall hear diligently GOD’S COMMANDMENTS to you this day, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND TO SERVE HIM WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL 14. THEN GOD WILL GIVE YOU RAIN of your LAND IN HIS DUE SEASON, the first rain and the latter rain, so you may gather in your corn and your wine and your oil. 15. And GOD WILL SEND grass in your fields for your cattle so you can eat and be full. 16. Take HEED to yourselves so your HEART be not DECEIVED to turn aside and serve other gods, and worship them. This means mind GOD’S BUSINESS!!!Deuteronomy11_12 land God cares for.jpg17. And then The LORDS GOD’S WRATH be kindled against you, and HE SHUT UP THE HEAVEN, that there be NO RAIN and that the LAND yield not her fruit and lest you perish quickly from off THE GOOD LAND THE LORD GOD GAVE you. 18. So therefore shall lay up these MY WORDS in your heart and in your soul and bind them as a sign upon your hand that they may be frontlets between your eyes. 19. And teach them to your children and children’s speaking of them when thou sittest in your house, and when you walk by the way when you lie down and when thou rise up. 20. And WRITE them upon the door posts of your house and upon your gates: 21. That your DAYS may be MULTIPLIED and the DAYS of your children in the LAND the LORD SWORE to your fathers to give them all the days of HEAVEN upon the EARTH. 22. If you diligently keep all these commandments which GOD Commands you, to do them, to LOVE the LORD your GOD, to WALK in ALL HIS WAYS, and TO CLEAVE TO HIM; 23. Then the LORD GOD WILL DRIVE OUT all these nations from before you, and you shall POSSESS Greater Nations and Mightier than yourselves. 24. Every place the soles of your feet shall tread on shall be yours from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river river Euphrates, to the uttermost Sea shall your Coast be.lg.gif

God’s KINGDOM on earth WILL BE SOON ESTABLISHED WITHIN ABOVE BORDERS HIS CHOSEN HOME OFFICE DOMINION HEADQUARTERS to Rule all the Nations. It is important to Submit to God to Obey God to be part of His ETERNAL Kingdom on earth. The changes taking place in the world today is ongoing fulfilment of GOD’S Holy LAND belonging to God. So Jesus WILL RULE AS GOD CHOSEN KING OVER ALL THE EARTH  OVER ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD IN CHRIST. GOD’S KINGDOM includes all nations and tribes of countless multitudes from all nations.

In Genesis 15:5, God promised Abraham that his descendents would be as numerous as the stars.  (See also Jeremiah 33:22 and Nehemiah 9:23.)
Many are making aliyah to Israel the Holy Land so coming to fulfill prophecy  thriving in Israel, with over 8 million family of God expecting others to come as well to join them soon. Many hear the CALL OF GOD to return to the birthright promised by COVENANT to Abraham and His Seed descendants.“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.  Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God.” (Ezekiel 36:2628). Many families throughout the years have made aliyah to Israel as a unit and have flourished. God Has SWORN in COVENANT  To surely bless and make descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Abraham’s descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”  (Genesis 22:1618)

Promised Biblical Borders.jpg

25. There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your GOD shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the LAND that you shall tread upon as HE Said to you. 26. Behold, I SET before you this day BLESSING and curse 27. BLESSING if you OBEY all these COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD HE COMMANDS you this day. 28. A curse if you do not obey commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way commanded you this day, to go after other gods you do not know. 29.  It shall come to pass when the LORD God has brought you in unto the land where you go to possess it, that thou shalt put the BLESSING upon mount Gerizim, and curse upon mount Ebal commandments and a way of cursing if they choose to walk in disobedience to those laws.  So two directions blessing and the curse, proclaimed on two mountaintops in the Land:  Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal. “Now it shall be, when the LORD your God has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put blessing on Mount Gerizim and curse on Mount Ebal in Deuteronomy 11:29.

Nablus rests between the Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal, the mountains on which Israelites commanded to pronounce the blessings and curses upon entering the Promised Land.  This is the location of Biblical Shechem, place where Abraham built an altar to the Lord (Genesis 12:6–8). Each given choice to follow GOD or not so entire direction of life depends on a chosen of the blessing or of the curse. Yeshua Jesus Messiah Says the narrow path leads to life and blessings. Narrow gate is difficult is way which leads to life so few who find it in Matthew 7:13–14.  Yeshua, Gate to SALVATION, Says path of blessing is difficult, because each day, hard choices made between good and evil desires and what is in alignment with the Ruach HaKodesh Holy Spirit.  To Obey God requires crucify Obedience for the desires of our flesh. Staying on the Path of Blessing during trials of life is, by LOVE. GOD’S Spiritual FORCE keeps HIS CHILDREN walking Narrow Way of Life of blessing through obedience to God. Coming to faith in Yeshua living a life of Obedience to God helps make the problems and trials of life bearable. Be of good cheer, joyful in the Lord, for He Overcame the world so you have peace in John 16. Continues the previous verse 30, on the other side Jordan, by the way where the sun goeth down, in land of Canaanites who dwell in campaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh? 31. You shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land the LORD your GOD Gives you, and you shall possess it, and dwell therein FOREVER.e6f807c410ae2ecfdccad551a9ee9214.jpg

32 You must OBSERVE to do all statutes and judgments which I SET before you this day. ALL EARTH LAND BELONGS TO GOD WHO KEEPS HIS EYES UPON USES AND DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT and of soil, parks and grounds, agriculture and nature. The LORD GOD is GREATEST GEOGRAPHER AND THE BEST FARMER so TELLS THE WORLD TO FOLLOW HIS METHODS AS DEDIGNED FOR EARTH TO BE FRUITFUL NOT DESTRUCTIVE. This means putting PRACTICAL REALITIES SUITABLE NOT TO CAUSE THE CLIMATE CHANGES OR THE WEATHER CHANGES affected by AESTHETICS mankind puts above OBEYING GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS. So ENVIRONMENT people live in matters to GOD CREATOR OWNER who wants all people to dwell in lush places like HIS ORIGINAL EDEN GARDEN. GOD MADE life simple and easy so mankind knows how to live and be freely provided for. Yet greed destroys Environment and puts concrete everywhere so the LAND DOES NOT DRINK RAIN ANYMORE but is flooding the homes and the cities in the name of grand designs. Mankind steers clear of the natural environment as far as possible in the name of all the human modern developments. Consequence is the changing weather patterns contrary to GOD’S WILL AND PURPISE FOR man.
