Watchman's View: America Is On A Zechariah 12:9
Path! - Jim Nash - http://watchmansview.com/Commentary_-

Here is the God of Israel's PROMISE:
"The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the nations that come against
Jerusalem" Zechariah 12:9

Officials Reveal US is Cozying Up to Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas

The US is warming up to cooperation with Iran - the Islamic regime seeking
nuclear weapons that has repeatedly declared its desire to destroy Israel...in
recent months, America and Iran have grown closer through cooperation
against their "common enemy", the Islamic State (ISIS)...Obama may be
holding secret talks with Iran - just as he was revealed last November to have
been holding secret talks for over half a year prior to the recent controversial
temporary nuclear agreement...The American mollycoddling of Iran has
extended to its proxy terror organizations Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in
Lebanon as well...America is indirectly giving Hezbollah military aid, with new
weapons being sent to the Lebanese army that coordinates with
Hezbollah...and Kerry and other senior American diplomats indirectly
negotiated with Hamas leaders such as Khaled Mashaal through Turkish and
Qatari intermediaries during ceasefire talks in July...American communication
with the Islamist terrorist organizations as it wages war against Israel raises
serious question marks, particularly when contrasted to Obama's harsh stance
recently on Israel, when he cancelled a routine transfer of Hellfire missiles, and
ordered greater scrutiny on future shipments...

Netanyahu Described as 'Chickens**t' by American Official

Washington is taking off the gloves when it comes to Israel..."The thing about
Bibi is, he's a chickens**t," the senior Obama administration official told
Goldberg, who referred to Netanyahu as "the foreign leader who seems to
frustrate the White House and the State Department the most."...The latest
crisis in Israel-U.S. relations revolves around Netanyahu's giving instructions
for the building of about 660 homes in Ramat Shlomo, in northern
Jerusalem...In a more recent incident, Kerry blamed Israel for the rise in global
jihadism, insisting that Israel "humiliated" the Palestinian Arabs and that it has
led to a "loss of dignity," leading to a recruitment draw toward ISIS...

Fed up, US warns: 'Deeply concerned about Israel's future'

The White House and State Department has criticized Israel's decision to
expedite the construction of 1,060 housing units in east Jerusalem..."There are
times when we disagree with actions of the Israeli government and we must
raise our concerns, such as our concerns about Israel's settlement
policy,"...Sharpened language from the Obama administration debuted not
only on Monday, but on October 1, when Obama hosted Netanyahu in the
Oval Office. Just an hour after Netanyahu left the building, White House Press
Secretary Josh Earnest and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki issued
the new criticism, which Netanyahu's staff found humiliating...

Bennett: Obama "Planning to Throw Israel Under the Bus"

Responding to harsh criticism by senior US officials, Israel's Economy Minister
Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday night, "The United States administration is
planning to throw Israel under the bus."...Referring to a report by Jeffrey
Goldberg in The Atlantic that quoted officials in Washington as describing
Netanyahu as "chicken....," Bennett slammed Obama administration
officials. "Not the leader of Syria who has massacred 150,000 of his citizens,
nor the leader of Saudi Arabia who stones women and homosexuals, nor the
leader of Iran who murdered demonstrators for freedom were called
'chicken....,'" Bennett wrote..."The prime minister is not a private individual, but
the leader of the Jewish State and the Jewish world as a whole. Serious
curses such as these against the Israeli Prime Minister are harmful to millions
of citizens of Israel and Jews worldwide," Bennett wrote in a statement on his
Facebook page. "Israel is the only democratic nation in the Middle East and
has been fighting for its existence for 66 years," he continued. "Israel is the
forward bastion of the free world in the face of Islamic terrorist of Islamic State,
Hezbollah and Iran."..."Israel is stronger than all those who curse it," he

Joel Rosenberg - Train wreck in U.S.-Israel relations: Senior Obama official
calls Netanyahu vulgar name, signaling "red hot" hostility between two
governments...I can say we are currently watching a train wreck in U.S.-Israeli
red-hot-hostility-between-two-governments-heres-the-latest/ ...Rosenberg's
commentary was addressing the following article: The Crisis in U.S.-Israel
Relations Is Officially Here...The Obama administration's anger is "red-hot"
over Israel's settlement policies, and the Netanyahu government openly
expresses contempt for Obama's understanding of the Middle East. Profound
changes in the relationship may be coming...

And so it continues ...as addressed in our June 4th commentary
"America God's Disappointing Vineyard" and in our update post of June
6th below:

Israel Blamed For Middle East & World's Problems - U.S. Leads the
Charge to Zechariah 12:9

The gloves are off. The White House has now unequivocally designated Israel
as the scapegoat and is meting out punishment for the disastrous outcome of
the peace negotiations it initiated...The process began in March when
President Barack Obama publicly lambasted Prime Minister Binyamin
Netanyahu in a brutal and offensive manner the day before their scheduled
meeting in Washington. It climaxed last week when the White House reneged
on its commitment to Israel, announcing that it would continue business as
usual with the new PA government after the merger with the genocidal Hamas,
the terrorist organization which remains utterly committed to the destruction of

The U.S. administration shocked Israel by accepting the new PA-Hamas
government even before the consummation of the union...The US initiative
was clearly designed to pave the way for Israel's further global isolation. It was
immediately endorsed by the European Union, the United Nations, the UK and
France and of course China, Russia and India all of whom praised the union
as an important step toward "Palestinian reconciliation."...
vibes-from-the-Obama-administration-355810 ...So the U.S. actions perpetrate
and lead the charge for the fulfillment of the prophecy of Zechariah 12:3
"Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone for all people"

Once again, this U.S. Administration has put its finger square in the eye of the
Apple of God's Eye, Israel...Almighty God's response will be true to His
Word..."I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you"
Genesis 12:3 ...and "The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the nations that
come against Jerusalem" Zechariah 12:9 - this does NOT exclude America!

As stated in "America God's Disappointing Vineyard" "Now let me tell you what
I will do to my vineyard (U.S.): I will tear down its hedges and let it be
destroyed. I will break down its walls and let the animals trample it. I will
make it a wild place where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not
hoed, a place overgrown with briers and thorns. I will command the clouds to
drop no rain on it. (Because) The nation of Israel is the (real) vineyard of the
Lord of Heaven's Armies. The people of Judah are his pleasant garden. He
expected a crop of justice (from the U.S.), but instead he found oppression
(toward Israel). He expected to find righteousness (or honesty toward Israel),
but instead he heard cries of violence (as you abandoned Israel for backing
terrorists, who's mission is to destroy her)." Isaiah 5:5-7

I'm taking the liberty of using the verse above meant for Israel, as also having
fulfillment in the United States of America - many passages in the Bible
concerning Israel seem to have a parallel message to America, as Rabbi
Jonathan Cahn so aptly points out in The Harbinger: the Ancient Mystery that
holds the secret of America's Future and the Isaiah 9:10 judgment.

These recent articles above and other actions (and inactions) of the U.S.
toward Israel, has not only serious ramifications for Israel, but serious
consequences for America. The U.S. has been Israel's defender for the last
97-years [Even prior to May 14, 1948, when Israel declared itself a State and
the US declared its recognition and support, following World War I, the Balfour
Declaration of November 2, 1917 was a product of efforts by President
Woodrow Wilson at the urging of Supreme Court Justice Louis
Brandeis]...starting with Bush I and the Oslo Accords (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oslo_Accords ) push of Land for Peace, and
continuing to its crescendo now with the Obama administration, blatantly and
unashamedly aligning the U.S. with those nations and terrorist groups, who
have aggressively and loudly called for Israel's destruction - to wipe it off the
map, is appalling at best! and calling down God's judgment at worst!

Jeremiah 11:11 contains a serious warning: "Therefore thus says the Lord:
"Behold, I will surely bring calamity on them which they will not be able to
escape; and though they cry out to Me, I will not listen to them."

Yes, Jeremiah 11:11 was written for Israel, however, as Jonathan Cahn draws
a parallel for America from Isaiah 9:10 "The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment" (the same
judgmental consequences for Israel visited on America), a parallel "Harbinger"
may be true for America and may find its fulfillment in the words of Jeremiah

For those of you who have read Cahn's latest book "The Mystery of the
Shemitah" and then have watched the volatility in the stock market (all gains
for 2014 have now been lost), beginning the day after Rosh Hashana (the first
day of the Shemitah year) can see that the "Calamity" has already begun and
most "will not be able to escape" the financial devastation which is to
come! Many have suggested it is already too late to "cry out" as God's
judgment on America (and the world for that matter) is fixed to His timetable for
wrapping up the Church Age, taking His Bride home, and unleashing His
righteous judgment (Tribulation period) on Earth!

Supporting these thoughts, Rabbi Cahn states in his latest book The Mystery
of the Shemitah "But what if the Shemitah contains an ominous warning about
a wider collapse of not just stock markets or housing markets but potentially
America's very existence as leader of the free world?" That would certainly be
a Jeremiah 11:11 event! Cahn also points out "the focus of the message is not
date-setting but the call of God to repentance and return. 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If
my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." "At the same time,
something of significance could take place, and it is wise to note the times."

As Rabbi Jonathan Cahn recently put it, the 'SMILE OF HEAVEN' IS
REMOVED FROM AMERICA - if you did not see and hear his short speech to
the chamber of the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall recently, click the link here:

Abbas: Closure of al-Aqsa holy site a 'declaration of
war' - http://www.timesofisrael.com/abbas-closure-of-al-aqsa-holy-site-a-declaration-of-

Remarks by PA president come a day after he said he doesn't want a third
intifada and blamed Israel for escalation of violence

Israel's closure of Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, known to Jews as
the Temple Mount, following an assassination attempt on Wednesday, is
tantamount to a "declaration of war," Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud
Abbas said Thursday morning.

Abbas's remarks came after an Arab suspect in the shooting of a prominent
right-wing Jewish activist was killed in a gunfight with the police in the mixed
Jewish-Arab Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Tor. Police closed the compound
early Thursday out of fear of clashes in the wake of the shooting of Yehudah
Glick, who campaigned for Jewish rights on the site, and as Israeli right-wing
groups vowed to march on the site.

"This dangerous Israeli escalation is a declaration of war on the Palestinian
people and its sacred places and on the Arab and Islamic nation," Abbas's
spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina quoted him as saying.

The director of the Al-Aqsa Mosque called the site's closure unacceptable.

"It is unacceptable that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is paying a toll for the events in
Jerusalem," he said.

"The mosque is a place for prayer and worship and all Muslims have the right
to access it," the director told the Ma'an news agency.

Israeli authorities turned back right-wing Likud MK Moshe Feiglin, who tried to
make his way onto the Temple Mount Thursday morning in response to the
shooting of Glick, a leader of the Temple Mount Faithful activist group.

Abbas spoke to Israel's Channel 10 Wednesday evening, as the UN Security
Council discussed the escalating violence in Jerusalem, and emphasized that
"we don't want an intifada. We aren't calling for an intifada."

"I told people frankly: these are our holy places and we want to protect them in
a quiet fashion. Where is the tension in my words? I say we must protect them.
You come to me and attack me and I say, stop attacking and nothing will
happen. But Netanyahu, all his accusations are null."

According to Abbas, Israel is responsible for fanning the flames of a third
intifada. "Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu forgot during these 50 days [of
the summer's military operation in Gaza] that not a single shot was fired from
the West Bank. We don't want an intifada. The Israeli media and many Israeli
leaders are those who are asking [for it] and inciting a third intifada. We aren't
in favor of a third intifada."

"What's happening in Jerusalem is very grave. We don't want matters to
develop more than this. I say to the Israeli people: I don't want advancement in
blood, not in Jerusalem nor in other places. I want quiet negotiations," he
added. "What's happening is incitement by the Israeli government. I went to
the Security Council. Where will I go? When [they] attack me, I go to the
Security Council."

Our Goal is to raise $20,000
as of 10/30/14 we have raised $12,819

We have nearly 30,000 people who read the Prophecy Update Newsletter
daily. So far, 64 wonderful Saints have donated to this project. If every
reader just gave $25, we would have more than enough to fund this
project, please pray and consider supporting this project, thanks!


You can be a part of the blessing of bringing the Gospels of Matthew and John
to DVD and online in the same quality, and with a sound doctrine and straight-
forward message, like all our other videos. Millions of people, from all over the
world have watched our prophecy videos on our YouTube channel and on our
website, absolutely free. It's your support, that makes this possible, and now
we want to add even more video content to our sites and win even more souls.
You, the supporter are our Kickstarter, underwriter and crowdfunding source.
The dividends and rewards generated through soul-winning projects like this,
reap eternal rewards!

There is no better way to share the WORD with people than the Gospel

We have produced a lot of DVD's on Bible Prophecy and have done verse by
verse video commentaries on the two main prophetic books of the Bible,
Daniel and Revelation. Now we want to expand even further and do verse by
verse video commentaries on the Gospels, starting with the Gospels of John
and Matthew. I have already written the scripts/commentary for both of them,
and we want to bring them to video as a series and post them online for free to
watch, as we have done all our other videos.

Massive Undertaking

This is a massive undertaking and would be out biggest project to date.
Matthew would take 12 to 14 DVD's and John should take 10 DVD's. These
DVD's would be just like all our others, professionally narrated, high-definition,
and packed full images, video clips, animations and illustrations, as well as
sound doctrine. It will cost nearly $20,000 dollars, that's about $850 dollars for
each video. The cost includes hiring the narrator, purchasing additional video
clips and animations to add our library, we will be able to use many of the
media clips several times. This also would include a new duplicator; our
current duplicator is almost at full capacity. A duplicator is like giant hard drive,
where all the master copies of our video library are stored for duplication to
DVD. If every reader gave just $25 dollars, we would have more than enough
to make this project happen!


To my knowledge, there is nothing else like this on the internet. Sure you can
watch a pastor or bible teacher giving a bible study on a stage with some
PowerPoint illustrations, but our style of video/commentary/documentary is
unique and leaves a lasting visual image and paints a mental picture and
illustration for every Bible verse.

I have been praying about this project and I am asking you to consider
supporting this project and making it happen, I want to get these videos online
as soon as possible, while we still have the time. As I was praying today before
I wrote this letter, the scripture that came to my mind was Philippians 4:19 -
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ

I ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with us to get the Word out
and make the Gospel Online Project a reality. Remember, your gift, no matter
how small, does make a difference! You will be helping to touch lives, around
the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, thanks to the internet your
generosity carries a global impact! Please pray about supporting this project, I
have a set up a special fund on our donations page for this project and I will
keep you informed of our progress.

Five Is Not Enough - By Daymond Duck -

The Bible teaches that ten kings (ten horns or ten leaders) will appear at the
end of the age and then an eleventh, a little horn (a little king or a little leader),
called the Antichrist will appear (Dan. 7:24; Rev. 17:12). Many outstanding
prophecy teachers believe these ten kings will be ten leaders in a
reunited Europe. But I disagree because the feet and toes on the statue in
Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Dan. 2:41-43) are feet and toes of iron plus clay
(not iron by itself). I believe the clay represents nations other than a re-united

So it is my opinion that the ten kings will be ten rulers over ten groups of
nations in the world not ten rulers over ten divisions in a re-united Europe. Put
another way, I believe the most powerful of the ten kings will be the king from
the Old Roman Empire (iron) and the other nine kings will be rulers over non-
Roman Empire groups of nations (clay). I believe the ten kings will rule over a
world government (iron plus clay) not just a reunited Europe (iron).

It seems significant to me that the UN Charter calls for the establishment of a
world government with administrative regions. It doesn't say how many regions
the UN wants in its desired world government, but based on the Bible I believe
that the world will wind-up with ten regions and each region will have its own
leader (or king) for a total of ten leaders (or ten kings). After the ten kings
appear, an eleventh king known as the Antichrist will appear. But the Rapture
will be before that (II Thess. 2:6-8).

At this time, the UN Security Council has five permanent members with veto
power, but most of the other nations don't like that. They say that it is unfair to
allow one nation on the UN Security Council to veto resolutions that have been
passed in the UN General Assembly by a hundred or more other nations. They
say that it is unfair to allow one nation (the U.S.) to block General Assembly
resolutions against Israel or to allow one nation (Russia) to block General
Assembly resolutions against Syria or Iran that have been passed by most of
the world.

For years, some of these General Assembly nations have called for the UN
Security Council to be restructured. But the five permanent members of the UN
Security Council have always ignored their call and steadfastly refused to
restructure and give up their veto power.

On Sept. 29, 2014 during the sixty-ninth Session of the UN General Assembly,
Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey addressed the issue and said, "The
world is bigger than five." Leaders from all over the world agreed with him and
they called for the immediate restructuring of the UN Security Council. But
there was more. They also called for the UN to create regions in the world and
to have leaders to represent those regions.

I have no way of knowing what the five permanent members of the UN
Security Council will do or when they will do it. They may continue to ignore
the call of the General Assembly nations to expand the number of permanent
members in the UN Security Council and to create regions with regional
leaders, or they may stop ignoring them and finally come around and do what
the General Assembly is asking them to do. But I will say that it is just my
opinion that the UN Security Council will soon restructure into ten groups or
regions of nations.

Globalists are already pushing for the creation of regional groups of nations in
North Africa and South America patterned after the European Union. Russia
and several other nations have already signed a document creating a group of
nations called the Eurasian Economic Union. Brazil, India and others are
already saying that their growing economic clout accompanied by the
economic problems in Europe and Asia means that they should be given a
greater voice in the world. And in July 2014, more than 130 nations signed a
document called a "New World Order to Live By."

So at some point I believe change will come to the UN. That change will be
followed by the rise of the Antichrist. And his appearance will be preceded by
the Rapture.

15 Signs That We Live During A Time Of Rampant
Government Paranoia - By Michael Snyder -

How does it feel to live under a government that is getting even more paranoid
with each passing day? Yes, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly
unstable, but that is no excuse for how ultra-paranoid the federal government
has become. Today, every single one of us is viewed as a "potential threat" by
the government. As a result, the government feels the need to intercept our
emails, record our phone calls and track our expenditures. But they aren't just
spying on individuals. The government keeps tabs on thousands of
organizations all over the planet, it spies on our enemies and our allies, and it
even spies on itself. The American people are told that the emerging Big
Brother police state is for our safety, but the truth is that it isn't there to protect
us. It is there to protect them. Our government has become kind of like a
crazy rich uncle that is constantly spying on everyone else in the family
because he believes that they are "out to get him". The following are 15 signs
that we live during a time of rampant government paranoia...

#1 Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson says that the federal
government was so concerned about her reporting on Benghazi, Fast and
Furious and other Obama scandals that they hacked her computer, monitored
every keystroke and even planted classified material in an apparent attempt to
potentially frame her.

#2 The United States has become the nation of the "permanent
emergency". In fact, there has been at least one "state of emergency" in effect
in this country since 1979.

#3 In America today, almost everyone is considered to be a criminal. At this
point, nearly one out of every three Americans has a file in the FBI's master
criminal database.

#4 Most people don't realize this, but the FBI also systematically records talk
radio programs. The FBI says that it is looking for "potential evidence".

#5 In Wisconsin, 24 armed police officers are an armored military vehicle were
recently sent to collect a civil judgment from a 75-year-old retiree. It is being
reported that officials feared that he might be "argumentative".

#6 According to guidelines that were recently made public, purchasing Amtrak
train tickets with cash is considered to be "suspicious activity" and needs to be
reported to the authorities.

#7 The IRS can now seize your bank accounts on suspicion alone. If you are
successful fighting the IRS in court, you might get your money back years

#8 Thousands of Americans have their mail spied on by the U.S. Postal
Service. If you are on "the list", all of your mail and packages are shown to a
supervisor before they are delivered to you.

#9 Most people don't realize that the U.S. border is now considered to be a
"Constitution-free zone" where officials can freely grab your computer and
copy your hard drive.

#10 The feds have apparently become extremely concerned about what all of
us are saying on the Internet. In fact, they have even been caught
manipulating discussions on Reddit and editing Wikipedia.

#11 The U.S. government has become so paranoid that it even spies on our
European allies. Needless to say, our allies over in Europe are quite upset
about this but we continue to do it.

#12 To the government, each citizen is a "potential threat", and this justifies
the militarization of our entire society. The following is an excerpt from an
excellent commentary by John Whitehead...

Just take a stroll through your city's downtown. Spend an afternoon in your
local mall. Get in your car and drive to your parents' house. Catch the next
flight to that business conference. While you're doing so, pay careful attention
to how you and your fellow citizens are treated by government officials-the
ones whose salaries you are paying.

You might walk past a police officer outfitted in tactical gear, holding an assault
rifle, or drive past a police cruiser scanning license plates. There might be a
surveillance camera on the street corner tracking your movements. At the
airport, you may be put through your paces by government agents who will
want to either pat you down or run scans of your body. And each time you
make a call or send a text message, your communications will most likely be
logged and filed. When you return home, you might find that government
agents have been questioning your neighbors about you, as part of a "census"
questionnaire. After you retire to sleep, you might find yourself awakened by a
SWAT team crashing through your door (you'll later discover they were at the
wrong address), and if you make the mistake of reaching for your eyeglasses,
you might find yourself shot by a cop who felt threatened.

Is this the behavior of a government that respects you? One that looks upon
you as having inviolate rights? One that regards you as its employer, its
master, its purpose for being?

I don't think so. While this hyper-militarization of the government is being sold
to the public as a means of preventing terrorism and maintaining national
security, it is little more than a wolf in sheep's clothing. In fact, as I document in
my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, what
we are dealing with is a police state disguised as a benevolent democracy, a
run-away government hyped up on its own power and afraid of its citizenry,
whose policies are dictated more by paranoia than need.

#13 As our police departments have become militarized, SWAT team
deployments have gone through the roof. As I wrote about recently, there
were only about 3,000 SWAT raids in the United States back in 1980. But
today, there are more than 80,000 SWAT raids per year in this country.

#14 The federal government is so paranoid that it is actually spying on
itself. The "Insider Threat Program" encourages federal employees to closely
watch one another and to report any hint of suspicious activity...

The federal effort, called the Insider Threat Program, was launched in October
2011, and it certainly hasn't diminished since Edward Snowden disclosed
details of the National Security Agency's domestic spying. As McClatchy
reporters Marisa Taylor and Jonathan S. Landay have described, federal
employees and contractors are encouraged to keep an eye on allegedly
suspicious indicators in their co-workers' lives, from financial troubles to
divorce. A brochure produced by the Defense Security Service, titled
"INSIDER THREATS: Combating the ENEMY within your organization," sums
up the spirit of the program: "It is better to have reported overzealously than
never to have reported at all."

#15 Last, but certainly not least, there is the matter of the NSA constantly
spying on all of us. The NSA is monitoring and recording billions of our phone
calls and emails, and most Americans don't seem to care. But they should
care. I like how an article in the New York Post described what is happening
to our society...

Through a combination of fear, cowardice, political opportunism and
bureaucratic metastasis, the erstwhile land of the free has been transformed
into a nation of closely watched subjects - a country of 300 million potential
criminals, whose daily activities need constant monitoring.

Once the most secret of organizations, the NSA has become even more
famous than the CIA, the public face of Big Brother himself. At its headquarters
on Savage Road in Fort Meade, Md., its omnivorous Black Widow
supercomputer hoovers up data both foreign and domestic, while its new $2
billion data center near Bluffdale, Utah - the highly classified Intelligence
Community Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative Data Center -
houses, well, just about everything. As James Bamford wrote in Wired
magazine two years ago, as the center was being completed:

"Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless
databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents
of private e-mails, cellphone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of
personal data trails - parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases,
and other digital pocket litter."

So what do you think?

Daily Jot: Withdrawal of Houston subpoenas is call to
action - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com

Saying "I don't want to have a national debate on freedom of religion" and that
it is not good for the City of Houston, homosexual mayor Annise Parker has
directed city attorneys to withdraw the subpoenas issued to five Houston
pastors. The pastors delivered petitions against her city ordinance requiring
restrooms to become unisex based on a person's perceived gender.
Notwithstanding, she vowed to continue to protect her so-called "Houston
Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO)" because "it is extremely important to me."
The change of mind came after Houston area pastors and others met with the
mayor and persuaded her to do the right thing. Excellent activism by the
pastors, but it shouldn't stop now.

Parker's change of mind on the subpoenas is a small victory in a bigger war.
This is no time for forgiveness. She was defiant in her defense of non-gender
public restrooms. Yet, she admitted that her action to subpoena pastors'
sermons and personal correspondence was not good for the city of Houston.
At the very least, Parker should face a recall election for her shenanigans in
dictating an ordinance that advances her transsexual agenda and ultimately
endangers children and others by opening public restrooms to anyone of any
gender. In the name of civil rights, Parker has ignited a national debate about
morality, the constitution, and protecting the rights of all citizens. She should
pay the price for her actions.

Pastors and the legal defense teams involved in getting Parker to call off her
witch hunt should make an example of Parker. She should be sued for her
intent to violate the First Amendment rights of the pastors in Houston. Parker
should be held accountable for violating Constitutional rights of free speech
and religious expression even by disqualifying valid petition signatures. She
should also be brought up on charges of using the office of mayor to forward a
personal agenda, and knowingly using city resources to pursue something that
was harmful to the city--all things she has admitted to in her subpoena
withdrawal. The pastoral community in Houston should be relentless in their
pursuit of justice.

The Lord has blessed his disciples with a moral and legal code of
accountability. It transcends the community of followers into the broader
society as we are charged to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you
(Matthew 28:19-20)." We are also told to overcome evil with good. What
Parker has done is evil. There should be no turning of the cheek. If the
righteous do not hold the line on accountability we have an Isaiah 59:14
situation: "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off:
for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." Let there be bold
action against the iniquity of the Houston mayor.

Daily Devotion: Learning from Trials - Greg Laurie -

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the
testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work,
that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
-James 1:2-4

It would be nice if we could see the trials in our lives as options, as electives. It
would be convenient if we could say, "I'm going to skip the trials course."

But the fact is, we don't have that option. Trials will come into the lives of every
believer. Notice that James says, "Count it all joy when you fall into various
trials." The phrase various trials could also be translated "many-colored trials"
or "trials of many kinds." In other words, no two trials or experiences are
necessarily alike.

You will be tested. The question is, will you pass or fail?

We must remember that God never tests us without a reason. God's ultimate
purpose is to conform us into the image of Jesus Christ. God wants to produce
a family likeness in us. This means that some difficulties and testings will show
us immediate results, while others will produce long-term ones.

There are times when I can emerge from a trial, look back, and say, "I learned
this when I went through that experience." But there will be other times when I
come through a difficulty, and all I will be able to do is shake my head and say,
"What was that all about?" I may not be able to tell you (at that moment) what I
have learned.

But what has happened, maybe unnoticed by me, is that I have become a little
bit more like Jesus. He has worked in my life to mold me and shape me into
His own image. It may be hard or impossible to point to definitive results in our
lives after a time of pressure, setbacks, or testing. Even so, we can know that
God is in control. And we can know that His ultimate purpose is to conform us
into the image of His own dear Son.

Featured Article: Bethulah and Her Son - Wendy Wippel -

Textbooks say that the structure of our modern 12-symbol zodiac originated in
Babylon about 6000 years ago, but that the mythology associated with it we
owe to Greece and Rome. As usual, they're very confident, and as usual,
they're very wrong. And two biblical characters will prove it.

Encyclopedia Britannica goes a little further, telling its readers that,

"The history of the symbols is unknown; they seem to appear first in Greek
manuscripts of the late Middle Ages."

"Seems" being the critical word there. Because it only "seems" that way if you
are completely ignorant of Scripture.

Starting with the oldest book of the Bible, Job.

Job lived not too long after the Great Flood, evidenced by the accusation of
Eliphaz, who asked Job,

"Will you keep to the old way which wicked men have trod, Who were cut
down before their time, Whose foundations were swept away by a flood?" (Job
22:15-16 ESV)

The fact that Job is recorded to have lived 140 years more, after God gave him
more sons and daughters and restored his wealth, also hints at an early post-
flood life. As does (since geologically the flood was followed by the ice age)
the fact that nearly all the references to snow and ice in the Bible occur in the
book of Job.

And Job talks a lot about the zodiac. Let's start with its origin:

"Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loose the cords of Orion? Can you
lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its
children? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their
rule on the earth? (Job 38:31-33)

Blueletter Bible offers the meaning of the Hebrew word, chuqqah, as things

What God is saying is that He leads forth the Mazzaroth (the zodiac, a
derivation of the word meaning "the way") Implying by the next two sentences
that, by that Mazzaroth that he established, he was revealing the things
appointed to happen on the earth, and he would also bring them to pass.

The Mazzaroth symbols, then, would work kind of like a mnemonic device,
helping people to remember the promises of God.

Which would become really critical when only one family would survive the
flood, and that family would have to make sure that succeeding generations
would remember the nature of the enemy, the heavenly battle that rages still,
and the promise of a Redeemer to come. Josephus recorded that Seth,
Adam's third son, constructed the sequence of promises associated with each
constellation (and fleshed it out with the three associated decans). And to
make absolutely sure we don't miss the hand of God in what we see in the sky,
Job says it twice:

"By His Spirit He adorned the heavens; the early His hand pierced the fleeing
serpent. Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways" (Job 26:13-14)

God laid out that "way" back to God in the heavens, as He spread the details
across the sky in the Mazzaroth. And interestingly, the earliest post flood
cultures (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Chaldean, etc.) unanimously perceived its
origin to be far before the flood, and unanimously identified some combination
of Adam, Seth, Enoch, and Noah as its originators.

The plan God laid out was a plan that one particular nation on earth would be
charged with carrying out. Which leads me to the first of my "proofs" Jacob,
who recorded prophetic charges to each of his 12 sons, in the order of their
birth, in Genesis 49.

"Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father
"Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength,
...Unstable as water, you shall not excel."

"Simeon and Levi are brothers; Instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling
place....I will divide them in Jacob And scatter them in Israel.

Judah is a lion's whelp; ...And as a lion, who shall rouse him? The scepter
shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh
comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

"Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea;,

"Issachar is a strong donkey, ...He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden, Dan
shall be a serpent by the way,

For Gad, "a troop shall tramp upon him, but he shall raid at their heels.

"Bread from Asher shall be rich ( some translate the Hebrew as "Asher will be
a weigher of bread".

"Naphtali is a deer let loose; "Joseph is a fruitful bough, The archers have
bitterly grieved him, .... But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his
hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob By the God
of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you.

"Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; In the morning he shall devour the prey,"

All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to
them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own
blessing. (Genesis 49:2-28)

An interesting thing happens, however, if you compare the tribes with the
specific things that they are identified with. Each identification matches
correlates with one of the traditional zodiac signs:.

"Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength,
Unstable as water, you shall not excel": Aquarius, the water bearer",

"Simeon and Levi are brothers; Instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling
I will divide them in Jacob And scatter them in Israel.: Gemini, the twins.

"Judah is a lion's whelp; And as a lion, who shall rouse him? The scepter shall
not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh
comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people": Leo, the Lion

"Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea": Pisces, the fishes

"Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between the sheepfolds; He bowed
his shoulder to bear a burden": Taurus the bull

"Dan shall be a serpent by the way": Scorpio, the stinging scorpion.

For Gad, " a troop shall tramp upon him, but he shall raid at their heels: Aries
as the first sign of the existing Zodiac, he has a troop tramping behind him but
he chomps at their heels.

"Bread from Asher shall be rich (some translate the Hebrew as "Asher will be a
weigher of bread."): Libra, the scales,.

"Naphtali is a deer let loose": Capricorn, the deer.

"Joseph is a fruitful bough, The archers have bitterly grieved him, But his bow
remained in strength": Sagittarius, the archer.

By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob. By the God of your father who will
help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you.

"Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; In the morning he shall devour the prey":
Cancer, the Crab. (not the original sign; the significance of the sign being more
the idea of grasping and holding tight.) (Genesis 49:3-27)

Each identification accurately relaying the human sons' faults but nonetheless
also identifying the way that God would use them, as the progneitors of Israel,
to achieve His purposes for Israel.

Twelve tribes and twelve signs. Coincidence?

But wait, we've only covered eleven of them.

Why? The boring answer is this: because Simeon and Levi were the twins. So
there's one left.

The not so boring answer is because the twelfth was not assigned to one of
the sons of Jacob, but to the one and only mother of the son of God. Mary. (My
other proof)

Virgo, the virgin who would nonetheless bear a child.

(In Hebrew Bethulah).

The Mazzaroth, God's revelation of the salvation appointed for all men, was
certainly corrupted to some extent in Babylon (and, then in Greece and then in
Rome). Names and symbols sometimes changed.

But the meanings really didn't. Because it didn't start there.

The encyclopedias will tell you that the ancients saw pictures in the stars and
made up stories. They've got it backwards. . Adam & Son(s) had a story to tell
about a coming Redeemer, and they wanted to be sure that the promises of
God weren't lost to future generations. So they used the Mazzaroth, which
God created, to make sure the world would remember the way of salvation. A
way that would someday be embodied by a son of Israel that would announce
that He was "the way and the truth and the life". A little boy prophesied to be
born of a virgin. .

We'll talk about Virgo in more detail next time we pick the Mazzaroth back
up. (I meant to do it today but got lost in the fascinating history. Sorry). Till
next week...
