New York train derailment kills four, injures 63 (11 critically)

A New York commuter train that derailed Sunday morning, killing four passengers, was hurtling at 82 mph as it entered a 30 mph curve, a federal investigator said Monday. The train was only half full with about 150 people on board when it ran off the rails around 7:20 Sunday morning while rounding a bend in a wooded area where the Harlem and Hudson rivers meet in the Bronx.  New York City Fire Commissioner Salvatore Joseph Cassano commented at the scene, “On a work day, fully occupied, it would have been a tremendous disaster.” Five of the seven passenger cars left the tracks along with the locomotive pushing from the rear of this long commuter train–the first car coming to a stop at the rivers edge.

Jesus said, “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest…

14 Jul

…nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

July 14, 2011

In light of the following information posted by Mike Evans of Jerusalem Prayer Team concerning a stealth meeting held at the White House concerning the dividing up of Israel, I find it very troubling that it took place on the same day that the Lord gave me a prophetic dream nine years ago, 07.11.2002 Political Conspiracy in America , to put a black man, a Manchurian candidate, in the White House.  That prophetic dream of 07/11/2002 was fulfilled six years later in the November 2008 presidential election.  Nine years to the day after the dream revealing this, 07/11/2011, this Manchurian president rallied the enemies of Israel together in a media-banned summit at the White House to plot their course against Israel and against Almighty God.

Please take time to click on the links above and read Mike Evans newsletter, and I encourage you to read my dream from 2002.  But most of all, I ask you to pray.  Fall on your face before our Holy God and repent for the sin of this nation and its leaders, both past and current.  Pray for God’s mercy on the U.S. and on Israel.  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem–the city in which God placed His Holy Name.

O my God, incline thine ear, and hear;
open thine eyes, and behold our desolations,
and the city (Jerusalem) which is called by thy name:
for we do not present our supplications before thee
for our righteousnesses,

but for thy great mercies.
O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do;
defer not, for thine own sake, O my God:
for thy city (Jerusalem) and thy people (Israel)
are called by thy name.

Daniel 9:18-19

Unrighteous Decrees by U.S. President

15 Jun

June 15, 2011

“Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees,
and that write grievousness
which they have prescribed”
Isaiah 10:1

I have been very prayerful about responding to the “natural” disasters over the past two months.  I knew that the tornado outbreak May 22nd was an immediate result of President Obama’s “Arab Spring” speech in which he called for Israel to give up the land won back during the 1967 Six Day War.  Because I did not have understanding regarding the tornado outbreaks in April, I did not want to be guilty of presumption so I continued to seek the Lord concerning these events.

Three days ago the Lord led me to two prophetic revelations I had documented but had forgotten about.  I have added these to the prophetic pages titled:

04.14.2011 Buildings Collapsing in a City

AND

05.20.2011 An Evil Proclamation

Even though He led me to see these, I did not feel released to bring attention to them through a blog post until yesterday when our President issued an ULTIMATUM to Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to respond to Obama’s decree that in order to restart negotiations with the Palestinians, Israel must first agree to go back to the pre-Six Day War boundaries.

JERUSALEM DAY 2011 ~ Experience It!

31 May

May 31, 2011

It is sunrise in Jerusalem, June 1, 2011.  The Western Wall prayer area for men (on the left) and for women (on the right) is already packed.  As the day progresses, the Western Wall Plaza (known to Jews as the Kotel) will continue to fill until it too is packed with thousands by tonight’s great celebration of the 44th anniversary of the reunification of the Old City of Jerusalem since the third day of the 1967 Six Day War.

I invite you to go HERE to witness the days activities streaming live from the web cam at the Kotel.  To see the wide view of the plaza and the Wall and share in their experience, select the 3rd camera view on the left and turn your speakers up. Remember the time difference from your location.  You will not want to miss their evening celebration that begins at 6:30 PM Israel time.

To read of my experience in Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day 2008 and learn what the Lord showed me concerning the nations who strive to pressure Israel to relinquish the land–HIS LAND that He supernaturally won back for them, go HERE.

God’s Hand In the Six Day War

In A Nutshell

17 May

May 17, 2011

I found this explanation of the Israel/Arab conflict to be excellent.  Dennis Prager of Prager University says that the motto of Prager University is, “If you give us five minutes, we’ll give you a semester.”  Without going into a theological discussion of the fact that the land of Israel is the inheritance of the Jews from Almighty God (Yehweh), Prager gives a concise and completely accurate account of why the conflict and why it has never been settled.  If you do not know the why, please take six minutes to watch and learn.  Then, when you find yourself in a conversation with those who are bleeding hearts for the Palestinian cause, you will have the knowledge to inform them of the truth.  But most importantly, you yourself will not be deceived.

If you do a search in your Strongs Concordance or your Bible software program for the word LAND, you will find 1,489 verses with this word in it.  Beginning at Genesis 12:1 you will see that God chose a “man”–not a nation–but a man of FAITH.  Yehweh led this man, Abraham, to a land called Canaan.  As you follow the story throughout the Scriptures you will see who the land belongs to, whose inheritance it is, and why.  According to the Scriptures, it does matter to God what people do with His people and with His land.  We are living in a very prophetic age–an age that will not allow man to remain neutral concerning this subject.

I have written many posts and documented several dreams and visions concerning Israel–the people and the land–that can be found under “categories” or by doing a search on this site.  I hope you will take the time to read what the Lord has had me share.

Come near, ye nations, to hear…

13 Apr

April 13, 2011

As I sat in prayer before the Lord this morning, the first thing I asked was,

“Lord, what is Your Word to the nations for this hour?”

He immediately took me to Isaiah and had me read chapters 34 and 35.

Isa 34:1  Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
Isa 34:2  For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
Isa 34:3  Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
Isa 34:4  And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
Isa 34:5  For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
Isa 34:6  The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
Isa 34:7  And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
Isa 34:8  For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
Isa 34:9  And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
Isa 34:10  It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
Isa 34:11  But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
Isa 34:12  They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.
Isa 34:13  And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.
Isa 34:14  The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
Isa 34:15  There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.
Isa 34:16  Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
Isa 34:17  And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
Isa 35:1  The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
Isa 35:2  It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
Isa 35:3  Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
Isa 35:4  Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
Isa 35:5  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Isa 35:6  Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
Isa 35:7  And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
Isa 35:8  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
Isa 35:9  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
Isa 35:10  And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Japan’s Earthquake & Tsunami–the Hand of God?

13 Mar

March 13, 2011

My heart grieves for the precious people of Japan because of the devastation caused by the recent earthquakes and tsunami.  As I watched the news reports I could not help but think of how much more devastating it is going to be for us, for truly, our day is coming, and I’m afraid it will be soon.  As I pondered on the “why”, I felt led to look up the date of the 9.0 quake that triggered the tsunami, March 11, and associate it with Israel.  Nothing happens by “chance”.  Contrary to what so many believe, Yahweh–Almighty God IS in control.  I want to share with you what I feel is very significant concerning the dates of these recent events and the possible “why” they took place.  I am not the nation of Japan’s judge.  God is.  I am only pointing out documented facts that correlate exactly with the timing.   Continue reading

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,

Today, August 15, 2010, is the fifth anniversary of the “Disengagement” — the forced expulsion of thousands of  Israeli’s from their homes, businesses and synagogues by their own government, and the land given to Israel’s enemies as part of the “Roadmap” to peace.   Go here to read a scathing summary of the travesty and it’s aftermath.  Two things that the author does not touch on that we need to understand is

The governors of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas have all issued proclamations calling for a day of prayer tomorrow, Sunday, June 27, 2010 concerning the oil disaster in the Gulf.  It is good that these states have governors who recognize this nations desperate need for God in this situation.  There will be some Christians who will take this call to prayer seriously, some who will take it lightly, and some will ignore it altogether.

War With Iran Imminent?

26 Jun

June 26, 2010

On March 14, 2003, the Lord spoke to me and said,

“Iran and North Korea will be great threats.”

This word from the Lord has since come to pass and continues to be made manifest.

I’m thankful for news reports coming out of the Middle East, for the U.S. news sources seem to be oblivious. I continue to read of the imminent threat of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, and now, it is being reported that the U.S. may be involved.

Because of this administrations contempt for our long-time and faithful ally, I feel that our involvement in this is purely self-serving and not for the sake of Israel.  Whether our nation is involved or not, it is of utmost importance that we keep watch on what is taking place with Israel, and that we continue to intercede for God’s people and His land.  You can read some of the most recent articles concerning this HERE , HERE, and HERE.

…and I will curse those who curse you. Genesis 12:2-3

June 25, 2010

On April 19, 2010, Israel celebrated their Independence.  This anniversary date floats from year to year due to their lunar calendar, just as Passover and other feast days do.  In 2010, the “date” of celebrating their “day” of Independence began at sundown on the evening of  April 19th and ended at sundown April 20th.  On this same date, April 19th, Fox News reported:

“The Obama administration is reportedly signaling another major shift in policy towards one of its staunchest allies, Israel, and this shift could change the way it votes at the Security Council.  The change would mean an end to the US’ use of its veto power in the United Nations Security Council when certain anti-Israel resolutions are introduced for a vote.”

On April 20, 2010, only hours after Israel’s 62nd anniversary of the prophetic fulfillment of its nation being restored by God was completed, the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico just off the U.S. Louisiana/Mississippi coastline explodes.  Coincidence, or the hand of God’s judgment?

The Source Of Obama’s Anti-Israel Policy
By Geoffrey Grider • May 22, 2010
——————————————————————————

What do you do when the unthinkable has happened? I cannot think of any President in US history that, no matter his political leanings, didn’t at least pretend to be patriotic and try to show a love for the country he was serving. Jimmy Carter was weak, but he didn’t come across to anyone as anti-American. But what we have now is a situation unlike any other in American history. For the first time, we have elected a Post-American President.

The Sounds of Secession

20 May

May 20, 2010

The number of cities and states jumping on the bandwagon to boycott Arizona for its new immigration law is increasing rapidly.  I was very pleased to see Arizona cause a backlash on California for its boycotting, by boycotting California in return.   Although this is no laughing matter, I couldn’t help but stand there and laugh out loud as I heard the news reporter quote California officials claim of it being “unfair”.

When I first saw this boycotting of Arizona, I could only think of dreams and visions the Lord has given me in the past.  Who would have ever thought that they would live to see the United States of America on the brink of being literally divided again as it was in the Civil War?  Continue reading

Obama administration sold out Israel and sided with the enemy.

6 May

May 6, 2010

When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for a “nuclear-free Middle East” this week, it showed that the Obama administration has sold out Israel and sided with radical Islamic leaders who want to force the Jewish Sate to not only disclose, but also dismantle its defensive nuclear weapons. The U.S. position has just made it “open season” on Israel by her enemies–especially those who threaten to wipe her off the face of the map. Many are jumping on the Obama band wagon, and anti-Semitism is on the rise world-wide.

It also appears that the Obama administration has sold out America as well.  Not only did Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, announce publicly how many nuclear warheads we have, Obama is calling for the eventual eradication of all nuclear weapons.  Recently, the president made a speech in which he appeared disgusted and apologetic that the U.S. was a “super-power”.  Well, it appears that he is doing everything in his power to destroy that status by destroying our proven deterrent and powerful defense against attacks on this country.

To get the full details, visit  http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/ and read the very alarming articles (May 5 and May 6 posts) by Joel Rosenberg concerning this, and see just how this is all playing out according to prophetic Scripture.

In violation of the Oslo Accords, the Palestinian Authority was authorized Monday by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and his government to relocate government offices and major institutions into east Jerusalem.  The goal?  To “Arabize” Jerusalem and strengthen their presence, influence, and power inside Israel’s capital city.

What response was heard from our President and his administration?  NONE.

Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan in prophecy and in the headlines

5 May

May 5, 2010

On Monday, April 26, 2010, the Lord had me open my Bible to Zechariah and begin reading at chapter 11, verse 1, and had me read through chapter 12.  I noticed in Zechariah 11:1-2, God is speaking judgment on Lebanon and Bashan (modern-day Syria). In verse 3, Jordan is also judged. In chapter 12, verses 1-3, God says that Jerusalem will be a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone for all who come against her.  Through the prophet Zechariah, God is revealing that these nations will fight Israel in the end times and how God will defend her and bring His wrath upon the nations who war against Israel.

The next days headline in the news was:

U.S., Israel say Syria

arming Hezbollah with missiles.

Tue Apr 27, 2010 6:07pm EDT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – “U.S. and Israeli defense ministers accused Syria on Tuesday of arming Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas with increasingly powerful missiles…” U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who spoke alongside Israel’s Ehud Barak after a meeting at the Pentagon, said Syria as well as Iran were providing Hezbollah with weapons of “ever-increasing capability.” “We are at a point now where Hezbollah has far more rockets and missiles than most governments in the world”, said Gates.

God Always Confirms His Word

14 Apr

April 14, 2010

I received more confirmation concerning the Word of the Lord that He spoke to me this Passover, March 29, 2010–that we were on the CUSP, and that we had crossed a point of no return.  You can read the confirmation added to the bottom of the original post “03.29.2010 We are on the CUSP“.

03.29.2010 We are on the CUSP.

3 Apr

On March 29, 2010, I awoke from a little power nap, hearing the Lord say the word “CUSP” to me.  Although I’ve never in my life used this word, and  don’t recall ever actually hearing someone else use it, I instantly knew what it meant.  I knew it was akin to the word, threshold–as in being at the brink or edge of something new or of  a major change–as if some invisible point had been reached and crossed over or entered into.  I looked up this word and verified that this was indeed what it meant–but actually, more exact:  “Cusp:  a point that marks the beginning of a change.” The example given for this definition was: “On the cusp of a new era.” This definition was more exact in that a cusp is an actual “point” of change.  It is more than being on the threshold or brink of it.  It is the point, the mark of the change.  It is where the change takes place.  Another source defined it as: “A point of transition (as from one historical period to the next), a turning point”. I knew that God was telling me that we were indeed at the point–the CUSP–of a spiritual change that we have never been before.  And, because of all that is taking place, I do not feel it is a good thing for America or the world.  I sensed strongly that we have entered a new era, we’ve come to a spiritual apex so to speak, that we as a nation, and the world as a whole, have reached a point–the beginning of a change–of which there is no return.

Not until now have I been able to even imagine how our nation, America, could turn its back on Israel and become her enemy.  Because the Scriptures declare it, I know it will happen, and even worse, that we will be part of the “all nations” that will fight against Israel in the end times, I just couldn’t wrap my head around how on earth this “Christian” nation could turn so far away from, and be so opposed to, the will of God.

THE DAY AFTER: Important Follow-up to “The Handwriting on the Wall”

25 Mar

March 25, 2010

A friend commented on this post with a link to an article by Newsmax.com, that he felt I would be interested in seeing.  He was indeed correct, for in it, Robert Malley, director of the International Crisis Group’s Middle East Program was quoted by Helene Cooper and John F. Burns in the New York Times:

the writing is on the wall that Obama and Netanyahu are going to clash on the final status
(of the Palestinians),”.

–Robert Malley, Director, International Crisis Group’s
Middle East Program

I found this Biblical reference used by Director Malley–and most especially that it was quoted on the same day that God spoke from this same Biblical event to me concerning America–as just more confirmation of what the Lord spoke over this nation and this president this past Tuesday Morning (see “The Handwriting on the Wall“).

As I sat here this morning praying for Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and his meeting today with U.S. President, Barack Hussein Obama, I felt I should post something concerning not only the significance of this meeting, but some of the decisions our President has made in his first year in office that have been done to pressure and manipulate Israel’s leadership into bowing to his demands.  As I asked what the Lord would want me to share,  I heard:

“you have been weighed in the balances
and been found wanting”

I have added a vision that the Lord showed me: “08.15.2003 A Nation Unraveling“.  I had not forgotten about this vision, but had not thought of it in a while to list it with the others, until the Lord let me hear one of our Congressmen speak of the fabric of our nation.  I encourage you to click on the link and see what the Lord revealed, for this vision has been, and continues to be, FULFILLED.

America–Adding Sin To Sin

June 12, 2009

“Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord,
“Who execute a plan, but not Mine,
And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit,
In order to add sin to sin;
Who proceed down to Egypt without consulting Me…
Isaiah 30:1-2a (NASB)

It seems that each new day brings with it another ungodly decision by America’s leadership. In my last post, I discussed President Obama’s declaration against God and Israel concerning the Land of Israel and the sovereignty of Jerusalem. I cringed when I read today’s headline for Arutz Sheva.

America–Prepare for God’s Judgment

4 Jun

June 4, 2009

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Proverbs 29:2 (KJV)

As I watched the president of the United States address the Muslim world, live from Cairo Egypt, today, June 4, 2009, I listened closely to what he said as well as took note of what he did not say. President Barrack Hussein Obama announced to the world that he and his administration desired the creation of a Palestinian state within Israel, demanded that Israel cease all construction of settlements in “occupied” territory, and stated,

“All of us have a responsibility to work for the day…; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims…”

His desire for a Palestinian state and for Israel to de-occupy land such as Gaza and the West Bank area only echoes the proclamation of our previous president, George W. Bush. However, Obama’s desire for the city of Jerusalem to become “international” is quite a bit more than Bush’s desire to split Jerusalem again by its retreating back to the 1967 pre-6-Day-War boundaries.  There are many other things he said (and did not say) in his speech that I could give my opinion on, but I feel that the most important issue is his official statements before the world—especially the Muslim world–concerning Israel.
