Yeshua is alive: He encountered my path by Isabelle Esling

Yeshua is alive: He encountered my path by Isabelle Esling: 'An Encounter with Yeshua' by Isabelle Esling is a love story.In her 9th book, the author depicts her extraordinary encounter with Yeshua our Messiah. While she was facing a difficult life s...

Out of Egypt I called my Son: a reflection about our Lord's childhood exile

The Gospels are quite discrete about Yeshua's early childhood. In fact, we know very little about the conditions in which our Messiah grew up. This is also the main reason why so many people (among them believers) extrapolate and invent the craziest theories. We should be cautious and examine everything in the light of the Scriptures and according to the context of the 1st Century in order to avoid erroneous and misleading statements.

A young child in danger: an angel speaks to Joseph in a dream

In our contemporary world, many non-believers  would mock a person who has been given dreams and visions. Yet Hashem still speaks to His children, in the same way, He did it back in the 1st Century. The Gospel of Matthew reports that Hashem sent an angel to Joseph while he was sleeping to inform him that he must flee with wife and child to Egypt, because little Yeshua's life was in danger.

"Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him. And he rose and took the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod.
This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, " Out of Egypt I called my son."

The Gospel of Matthew informs the reader that Yeshua's exile in Egypt is the fulfillment of the prophecy contained in the Book of Hosea, chapter 11, verse 1:

"When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son"

The verse of prophet Hosea is a metaphorical picture that sets an important parallel with Israel and our Messiah Yeshua's destiny. 
One must understand that the reference to Egypt (Mitsraim, in Hebrew, a land of servitude) is intimately linked with the Book of Exodus 4:22-23:

"Then you shall say to Pharaoh, "Thus says the Lord, "Israel is my son, my firstborn. So I said to you, "let my son go, so he may serve you."

In the same way, Yeshua is referred to as our Father's begotten Son ( yes, it is in the Tanakh for the ones who would doubt it!).

 "I will tell of the decree:, "you are my Son, today I have begotten you." Psalm 2:7

The Massacre of the Innocents in the light of the Scriptures 

King Herod was a cruel man, a despotic person who considered the person of the Messiah of Israel as a personal threat to his kingdom. In the first Century, many people thought that the Messiah would establish some physical kingdom. Herod knew that the Messiah king had been born to Israel, in the town of Bethlehem ( bait Lehem, the house of bread).

"But as for you, Bethlehem Ephratah, too little among the clans of Judah,From you One will go forth for me to be a ruler in Israel,His goings forth are from long ago,From the days of eternity." Micah 5:2

When the cruel king realized that he had been tricked by the Magi, he made the decision to kill all male = children between 0 and 2 years of age living in the region of Bethlehem:
"Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the lake children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men." (Matthew 2:16)

Skeptics object that there is no factual proof that this massacre actually happened. In my opinion, people should be very cautious in dismissing Scriptural truth. Many hidden events, buildings or inscriptions often resurface after Centuries in archeological discoveries.
Because parts of King Solomon's temple have only been found recently, would you really doubt the very existence  of Solomon's Temple 20 years ago?

In chapter 31, the prophet Jeremiah prophecied about the tragic event that would  cost many newborn's lives:

"Thus says the Lord: a voice has been heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children, because they are no more." Jeremiah 31:15

Raised in a TORAH-observant family

It is sometimes surprising how people, who claim to be believers in our Messiah, prompt to make statements that have no biblical foundations. Whether their assumptions are based on apocrypha or vague beliefs regarding the places mentioned in the Bible-or simply a complete ignorance of Israeli customs, they are very much delusory.

I would like to dismiss some of these common beliefs regarding Yeshua's childhood:

- Yeshua wasn't "initiated" to Egyptian mysteries. This assumption is foolish. Why? Simply because Joseph and his wife Miriam were devout Jews. Even in the absence of a Jewish community in the land of Egypt, both parents would instruct their son in the knowledge of Hashem.
The Egyptian customs were avoided by Torah observant people since very ancient ages. Think of Joseph, the son of Jacob and Daniel the prophet, for instance.

-Yeshua wasn't raised in "Islamic beliefs". Islam didn't exist at this time. On a side note, Islam is inspired by the paganism of Egypt as well. The god of Islam is no other but an ancient moon god.

- we must admit that we don't know much about this child named Yeshua, our Messiah.
But, I'd like to dismiss here ALL unjustified claims that Yeshua wasn't raised properly in Torah.
Yeshua was observant enough to be considered a true Jew and be allowed for Torah reading in the Temple. We also know from the Gospels that Yeshua did not even neglect minor feasts in Judaism.

Another point that we must be aware of: our Father took care of Yeshua in a very special way. He was instructed constantly according to Hashem's full wisdom, as the Gospel of Luke fully confirms us:

"And Yeshua increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and with people." Luke 2:52

Miracles do happen for those who believe!

Have faith in Yeshua!

The parable of wheat and tares: linked with our Messiah's Second Coming

Our Messiah always spoke in the form of powerful images and took mere examples from the nature for His disciples and His listeners to catch the deep meaning contained in His impressive metaphors. Yet, many individuals, including His 12 close disciples, found Yeshua's parables difficult to figure out. 

He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants if the master of the house came and said to him: "Master, did you not sow good seeds in your field? How then does it have weeds. He said to them, "An enemy has done this."
So the servants said to him, " Then, do you want us to go and gather them?".
But he said, "No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, "gather the weeds first and bind them into bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn." Matthew 13:24-30

After receiving a powerful vision of a new Heaven and a new earth in the middle of Paris, yesterday, I am feeling compelled by the Spirit to write about Yeshua's parable of wheat and tares, as it contains a very valuable teaching about our Messiah's Second Coming.
I am urging you and exhorting you to prepare yourselves for our Lord's Coming in glory. Examine your words and actions, bring Him your Teshuva ( repentance) when needed.

Yeshua raised an alarming question that should push us all to stay AWAKE and READY:

"When the Son of man returns, will He find faith on earth?" Luke 18:8
There is also a burning question I am addressing you all: "Under whose authority do you walk? men's authority or the Messiah's? Do you just accept any teaching or do you accept it if it is in accordance with our Messiah's words? Is your heart forgiving and filled with love, or do you secretly envy and hate people?"

Remember that, when our Messiah comes, there will be no time for hide and seek games. Your most hidden thoughts will be unveiled.
I encountered Yeshua's eyes a few times. From this powerful experience, I'd like to tell you: Yeshua's eyes are sharp as a sword, they do scan your inner being to its most intimate depths. Although I felt comfortable with this experience, I felt dirty in front of Him, because He is holy, pure and perfect.
How do you think you will be able to stand before our Savior if you are currently having double measures? Repent of your sins while it is time, confess your iniquities and live a holy life before Him.
Idolatry, sexual immorality, false prophecies and greed will not be allowed on the very day of His return. Examine yourselves. I am urging you to do it. Even being saved, examine your actions daily, so the very day of Yeshua's return will be a day of celebration for you. Otherwise, you may well end up being burnt like the weed.

The wheat and the tares: our Messiah explains

Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field. He answered: "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. 
The harvest is the end of age and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into a fiery furnace. in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear." (Matthew 13:36-43)

We live in a very pernicious age where people prefer to be comforted by false teachers and false doctrine than walking in the dust of their Master's sandals.
A lot of false teachers are led by their own greed and mislead a lot of souls. Because many people are comfortable with being directed by assemblies instead of checking everything in depth in accordance with the Scriptures, they are very likely to fall for false doctrines and made-up theologies ( like, for instance the theology of "replacement" regarding Israel, that has absolutely NO BIBLICAL FOUNDATION.)

Our Messiah wants us all to walk in truth and to avoid idolatry ( this is not an option!).
Eliminate false practices from your life, like the sign of the cross, the cult of Mary, rosary prayers, bowing before statues, etc...).

The Gospel of John is VERY CLEAR about it:

"God is spirit and those who worship Him MUST worship IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH." John 4:24

The children of light are growing besides the children of evil. The children of evil can also be believers and followers in appearance who practice evil secretly. The irony is that wheat and tares look pretty much alike, but our Messiah's eyes will distinguish and separate one from another.
When the Son of Man returns, you will not be able to hide your actions before Him, whether good or bad.

Walk in humbleness with Him before He returns and He will reward you greatly.

A new Heaven and a new earth ( from "Heart of a Savior")

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” (Revelation 21:1)

Yeshua granted me an amazing Shabbat; the Eve was introduced with loud praise from His folks that were audible from my balcony.
Not only was this Shabbat very delightful in terms of renewing me in body and mind, it was also fruitful in the spiritual sense. Our Lord shared a lot of things with me and surprised me with a tremendous vision in the middle of the Parisian streets.
Before sharing the powerful vision I received, I would like to underline something essential: our Messiah could be coming any time now. The Spirit keeps warning me, so please take my words seriously. Yeshua our Messiah is at the door and, now more than ever, it is very important that you walk in righteousness, because the ones who refuse His grace now will be filled with demonic spirits and condemned to second death.

I was walking in the middle of Paris and heading towards home. I was about to take my usual path when some highlighted drawing in the middle of the cloudy sky attracted my attention. The drawing looked so intense and so surreal- like a picture from an artist- at the same time that I was wondering if people next to me were seeing it as well, but nobody was looking upwards.

I decided to walk opposite in order to see what this strange spectacle was about. As I approached closer, my eyes discerned some big white sails from a ship. As I was reaching Boulevard Raspail, the sails transformed into a big, black mountain that was covered with clouds. A very bright light was emanating from the upper part. The picture metamorphosed into a landscape of valleys and mountains that were immersed into a very intense light shade.

The Lord spoke to me: “These are New Heavens and new earth”.
The vision then disappeared from the sky as it had never existed.
Yeshua's words were a clear reference to the Book of Revelation, chapter 21.
I immediately caught the very meaning of the vision our Messiah had given me, as He had also shown me during resting time that He wants people to give up idolatry and pagan traditions. What Yeshua shared with me also goes out to people who claim to be His, but who persist in deceitful practices.
The powerful vision described above and Yeshua's words pointing at Revelation chapter 21 is giving me a new sense of emergency. Please understand that our Messiah could return any time now. If you are facing this event being unprepared, you will be tremendously shaken and here is WHY.

Yeshua told me that people who are acting by ignorance are more likely to be forgiven than the ones who know and keep bowing before pagan god's altars.
I have a few questions to you, and I am asking you to examine your conscience with honesty.
If you knew that Easter is linked with the pagan cult of goddess Ishtar, would you keep celebrating it? If you were aware that calling Miriam (Mary, Yeshua's mom) “Queen of Heavens” also refers to the pagan cult of the same goddess of fecundity, would you still give Miriam that title? If you knew that the false doctrine of a trinity is deeply rooted in paganism and is not justified by Scripture, would you still believe it and spread it as truth?
Our Messiah's return is IMMINENT.
If you think that the questions I just raised are of no importance, please consider the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21, verse 8:
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

Our Lord is full of mercy, but once you choose to follow Him, you ought to walk in truth.
The Spirit urged me to send out this warning. It is high time now to repent and place our Lord and Savior before teachings of men.
Be holy for Yeshua is holy. Be pure for our Lord is pure. Be light for He is the Light.

Genesis 45: Joseph's veiled appearance and the Suffering Messiah by Isabelle Esling

Genesis 45: Joseph's veiled appearance and the Suffering Messiah by Isabelle Esling: The story of Joseph in the Book of Genesis is fascinating. It is indeed a great teaching about God's compassion and forgiveness and His everlasting love for the people of Israel. It is also deeply int...

You are thinking that the Torah's teachings are obsolete? The Hebrew Bible anwers you: WRONG!

I have been to assemblies that openly taught that the Torah was a "huge burden" for men and that the coming of Yeshua would do away with this "horrible" law. The same type of ignorance led this people to making a lot of anti-semitic statements as well.
Whoever is teaching you this is spreading a FALSE teaching, that has no roots in the Bible's original text. Our Lord Yeshua doesn't want you to be ignorant; He wants you to walk in truth.
Moreover, if you read Yeshua's statements contained in the New Testament very carefully and make the effort to replace them into their Hebrew context ( actually where they belong), you will envision clearly that you have been lied to.

"But his delight is in the Law of the Lord". What is the "Law of the Lord"?

                                   Credit to "Hebrew for Christians"  for Psalm 1 in Hebrew

The Torah is not just a law. Hashem gave Israel the Torah as a teaching, a direction, a way of life.
Take a look at the etymology of the word "Torah" and you will be amazed at the variety of significations within the word Torah.

Blessed is the man whose delight is in the Law of the Lord ( beTorat Hashem) and on His Law (Torah), he meditates night and day.
We are supposed to find our delight in the Torah and to meditate it night and day...whoever despises the Torah despises the God of Israel.

Yeshua, teacher of Torah: what else do you think that He teaches but Torah?

"Do not think that I have come to revoke the Written Law or the Prophets; I have not come to revoke but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17

One can read the Gospels throughout; our Messiah always spoke IN FAVOR of the Torah. When Yeshua discusses with the Pharisees and the Scribes, He is showing them a way to apply the Torah in a loving way by showing mercy, like healing the sick during Shabbat day.

Whoever teaches you that Yeshua did away with the Torah and with our Father's Commandments is -obviously lying to you, no matter if he is a Bible scholar or a self-proclaimed expert.

Yeshua clearly states, in Matthew 5:19: "Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called LEAST in the Kingdom of Heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven."

Each time I am advocating the Torah, some Gentile believers come up with Pauline doctrine in order to justify their views against Torah and Jewish people in general.

The problem with English translations when people address to Yeshua as " rabbi", you will find "which means "teacher", so many people who have no clue about Hebrew culture are getting totally confused. Describing Yeshua our Messiah as a teacher is incomplete. Yeshua is a teacher, but what does He teach? Our Messiah teaches nothing else but Torah!

Well, I am taking the risk to shock a great majority, but I will speak out courageously. I owe loyalty to Yeshua only. How you will judge me is none of my business. I am obeying my Messiah, no matter how the world will rate me.

My point is: stop making an idol of Paul!

- did Paul die for you on the Cross? NO
- does Paul have the power to give you eternal life? NO
- is Paul's authority superior to the Messiah's? NO
-is Paul the Truth? NO, Yeshua is the TRUTH. Whoever is of the Truth listens to HIS voice!

Whatever Paul says, he is a mortal and he is subject to error. Our Messiah Yeshua's words have AUTHORITY over anyone else. He is Ben Elohim, the Son of God, the Anointed of Hashem. 
Therefore, we are meant to abide His words, His teachings, His directions.
Rabbi Yeshua's words cannot and will not mislead you

I will say it again: Yeshua is NOT the founder of Christianity. He was born, lived, died and was resurrected as a Jew. Yeshua is the King of the Jews before being the King of the Nations.
Our Messiah is a child of Israel and ALL His teachings are after the Torah.
Yeshua has nothing but love for Torah.
Now the choice is up to you: either you are following a man-made, pagan Messiah or you are following Yeshua, the true Messiah of Israel who will come back and confirm the Torah's validity.

You are free to choose under whose authority you want to walk: the authority of men or the authority of our Lord. Make the right choice!

"Take me there!", a welcoming vision (from "Heart of a Savior")

             here is the very picture of my vision

Yesterday I stumbled across a beautiful Galilee vineyards photo. The picture was so appealing to me that I started closing my eyes in order to capture it into my mind for a few minutes. I spoke to Yeshua: “Take me there!”
Eyes still closed and to my greatest amazement, Yeshua was standing in the middle of the picture that was becoming very much alive before my eyes.
His head was veiled, but I could distinguish His beard. His clothes were white and very shiny. My vision was transforming into a powerful invite to the land of Galilee. My Yeshua was welcoming me into His land!

As I was recalling this vision today, Yeshua brought me back to it.
Our Messiah looked at me with a warm smile. The words He uttered touched my heart to its very depths. 

Yeshua said: 
“What is mine is yours, child. This land is yours too.”

I looked back at Yeshua as tears were running from my cheeks abundantly.
Yeshua has such simple ways, a spontaneous and genuine kindness when addressing to His beloved ones.
My great King, I feel like kissing your heart. While bathing in His tender eyes, I feel connected to the land of Galilee, to the soil, to the plants, to the animals and to the people living there, although my feet never walked this region.
This vision carries much more than just a virtual trip to Galilee; it is a transportation through Yeshua's blessed heart and soul.

Breaking walls through songs and high praise

The Second Book of Chronicles certainly offers the attentive reader some historical facts about ancient Israel, but it also contains a much broader, spiritual perspective.

Yesterday I came across the story of deliverance as told in the second Book of Chronicles, chapter 20.

Chapter 20 will give you some precious insights about a teaching I am currently also receiving from Yeshua Himself.

When faced with difficulties, opponents and obstacles of any kind, complaints are definitely NOT the right way to handle them. Look back at the story of the Israelites in the desert and see by yourself how they angered our Lord with repeated laments.

Complaining is a way of showing distrust. It will only make your soul sick and bitter.

Elevate your thoughts

Yeshua clearly showed me that He wants me to ELEVATE my thoughts TOWARDS HIM.
When you glance at Yeshua,  you cannot and will not remain in a negative state of mind.
By recognizing His attributes and by offering high praise to the Most High, through intense prayer and songs of praise, you will break any wall.

When you start becoming conscious of WHO is walking with you, you will be able to break any type of obstacles into pieces.

Hashem delivers Judah

"And they began to sing and praise, the Lord set pan ambush against the men of Amnon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. 2 Chronicles 20:22

As I stumbled across the story as told in 2 Chronicles chapter 20, I understood straight away that the Holy Spirit had brought me there, as Yeshua had kept encouraging me to offer Him high praise in words and songs.

Understand that all apparent obstacles, enemies, or whatever you might be facing are merely an illusion. They are meant to be broken and to disappear in front of the might of the Lord of the armies.

But to enable their disappearance, you MUST claim VICTORY in HIS NAME at first.

All praise to our Lord Almighty who has the POWER to break any evil in our lives. Glory to our Lord whose love is ETERNAL. May you have the courage to claim your victory, in Yeshua"s Name. Amen.

Chosen, loved and taken by our Lord: the destinies of Enoch and Elyahou

Some servants of Hashem are meant to have a special destiny. 
Enoch and Elyahou were known as obedient and committed, Not knowing death is a rare, special favor that Hashem has in reserve for a few chosen ones. Whoever doubts that His servants' death truly affects the Almighty should read John 11, Eleazar's (Lazarus) resurrection.

Take a second to meditate on the following verse of John 11:35:

"Yeshua wept."

Yeshua is Lord. Yeshua has the power to resurrect His friend. Yet his death deeply affects His heart.

"In the sight of the Lord, the death of his faithful ones is valued." Psalm 116: 15

Enoch (Hanoch), a righteous man in the middle of a corrupt generation

"Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah and he had other sons and daughters; So all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him." Genesis 5:21-24

My Tanakh renders the last sentence this way: "Hanoch walked in a way that pleased God, when he disappeared, God had withdrawn him from the world."

The Hebrew verb ( לָקַח) lakach has the meaning of carrying away, snatching, fetching. It clearly indicates God's strong will to carry Enoch away in order to transfer him into a better place.

I do believe that people who walk in holiness, especially within a sinful and corrupt generation are highly favored by the Most High. Being taken by our Lord before the end of our days is a special mark of affection.

Elyahou (Elijah)'s ascent   

The closeness of the prophets to Hashem is a beautiful love story. All of them have willingly laid down their lives in the tiniest details to our Lord. They have become His eyes, His mouth, His hands...they sometimes speak in signs and in symbols for the common mortal to understand Hashem's thoughts.

Elyahou's ministery has been marked by an ardent will from the prophet to get rid of the prophets of Baal. The prophet has been taken care of in a very supernatural way, nourished by the ravens of meat and bread. On his word, the rain was stopped for three years in the land of Israel.

Elyahou was filled with the Spirit constantly.

When the prophet ascends to Heaven in a chariot of fire in the presence of Elisha, his disciple, the only object that he leaves is his mantle. The mantle Elyahou is wearing is not just any piece of garment. It is very symbolic of wearing the Spirit. One all the stories revolving arount the tallit in Judaism may be entitled to ask if this mantle that is spoken of in the second Book of the Kings is indeed a tallit. If we do consider the many stories in Judaism revolving around the tallit, it would really make sense, especially because Elisha requests a double portion of the Spirit.

In his most recent video, David Hines makes a parallel between Elyahou's mantle and the Shroud of Turin as a powerful testimony of the Spirit. Check it out.

On a side note, Elyahou is the prophet , in Jewish tradition, who will revive the Messiah ben Yosef.

Choose to walk in righteousness in the middle of a corrupt generation. Be the salt of the earth. Be zealous for Hashem and spread His Good News of Salvation. Remember that any true follower of Yeshua is withdrawn from the world, even during his lifetime.

May the Spirit of Adonai be with you, always.

Accuracy of Ezekiel 38: a prophecy unfolding before our eyes

It is a matter of fact: our contemporary world is at war. With the Islamic terror threat rising worldwide and many nations taking openly position against Israel, the ancient Bible prophecy of Ezekiel 38 is slowly unfolding before our very eyes. Yet so many people are blind to see it. In the same way, many fail to see that World War 3 has already started. It is hidden, but political and spiritual at the same time. Another reason why prophet Ezekiel's words seem shrouded to the public is the difficulty in recognizing the protagonists' names.

The Book of Henoch

Other than Ezekiel 38, the Book of Enoch (Hanoch), that was discovered in Qumran, cave 4, describes the same type of conflict.
Regardless if people accept it or reject this writing from their biblical canon, Enoch is mentioned in Genesis 5 and the epistle of Jude makes mention of the Book of Enoch too. As far as I am concerned, one should always examine things rather than spreading preconceived opinions.
You will find more info about this text in the following study.

So, what does Ezekiel, chapter 38 state and who are the main protagonists involved?

The following cards will help you localize the nations that are mentioned by prophet Ezekiel.

The Book of Ezekiel, chapter 38, verses I to 16 are addressed to Gog, a potent political leader. Who is this head of state?

To decipher the names of the nations in Ezekiel 38, one must take into account that:

  • the land of Magog represents Modern Day Russia
  • there are high probabilities the prince of Rosh would represent Vladimir Putin
  • Meschech and Tubal refer to the territories in and around Turkey
  • Cush is Modern Day Ethiopia
  • Put is Modern Day Lybia
  • Interestingly Persia refers to Modern Day Iran
  • Gomer represent Eastern Europe and Beth Togarma is another name for Modern Day Turkey
Also note that the principal protagonists do have numerous allies.

The current battlefield of the world is one of Iran's allies: Syria, a close neighbor to Israel-which leads us to examine parallels in Scripture where Syria is to be found in the same context.

Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17:1: a confirmation of Ezekiel 38?

While the verse of Isaiah 17:1 clearly points at Syria and predicts Damascus' destruction, Psalm 83 names a lot of nations:

  •  the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites
  • Moab and the Hagrites
  • Gebal and Amnon and Amalek
  • Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre
  • Ashur
The "tents of Edom" refer to Cisjordania and the Ishmaelites include Saudi Arabia and Syria.
Moab and the Hagrites refers to Jordan and Egypt.
Gebal, Amnon and Amalek: parts of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Egypts are described as participants of the conflict that opposes them to Israel. The territory of Tyre (Southern Lebanon) is controlled by the Hezbollah. Philistia does not really need a transcript, the reader will understand that it represents Palestinian folks.
Ashur refers to the territories Syria and Northern Iraq. 
"The descendants of Lot" are the inhabitants of Jordan.

Psalm 83 gives us a precise picture of current conflicts and furthermore.

"An oracle about Damascus. Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins." Isaiah 17, verse 1
Two other parts of Scripture seem to inform us about the political happenings of the end of age.

A hidden spiritual war against Israel that looks political at first sight

I don't pretend to be an expert in politics. The following reflections are based on observations in the face of current political events.

For the first time in history, the USA are led by a president who is openly pro-Islamic and against Israel.

"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." (Barack Obama)

This is not an innocent statement. It is a public confession from somebody who is no longer secretly a Muslim. As for those who doubt about the president's hatred for Israel should have a further look at Malik Obama's ties with Hamas.
Malik Obama happens to be Barack Obama's half-brother.

"There are six things that the lord hates, seven are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out  lies and one who sows discord among brothers." Proverbs 6: 16-19

Obama's quotes about Israel: double standarts?
Yes, as far as I am concerned. You cannot state one thing, and stab the Hebrew state in the back with your political actions in favor of Israel's worst enemies, such as Iran.

Euphory in Iran after the Iran nuke deal with the USA had been signed.

pope Francis with Mahmoud Abbas

Do you think that the UN and pope Francis' acceptation of Palestine , respectively in 2012 and 2015 are a pure coincidence? No, they are not!
This is part of a wicked agenda against Israel. And no, Roman Catholic church is not the continuation of Yeshua's movement...it is a pagan, corrupt, rotten, syncretist institution, there is nothing "holy" in it. Many of Francis' statements are in total contradiction with the Bible. This man is not a " holy person", open your eyes. The same person also stated that Jewish people do not need Yeshua to be saved! Yeshua came for His people at first, He is the Messiah of Israel and this man has the nerve to make such statement.

Many leaders would rejoice to see the state of Israel completely destroyed and some of them are actively working towards discrediting the Jewish heritage and history of the town of Jerusalem.


  • the USA are coming against Israel
  • Barack Obama has strong links with Hamas. He encouraged, over the months, the infiltration of potential terrorists through his immigration policies. Syrian refugees are the Trojan horse that will trigger more terrorism in Europe.
  • Obama is stimulating society's decay with the legalization of gay marriage and depraved gay sex teaching programs in kindergarten.
  • No matter how much the politicians of the world are lying to the middle man, there is no peace in Islam. The Quran condones torture, crucifixion and beheading of "infidels". As a concrete proof, examine the persecution of Eastern Christians.
  • Corporate religions are currently working towards a "one world religion". Pope Francis clearly shows his sympathy for Israel's biggest enemies, the very persons who are stabbing Jewish people in the streets of Jerusalem daily
  • There is a deliberate, worldwide will to deny the Jewish state its legitimity.
  • The recognition of "Palestine" by the UN marks a turning point in history. Making "Palestine" legitimate is also a way of endorsing their cause against Israel.
Modern Day prophecies in Israel: war and return of Messiah

I invite everybody to watch this video in which a young Israeli describes what he saw after his NDE.

Times of tribulation have already started. 
     Remember to stay close to the Lord in any case. 

And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls." (Joel 2:32)

Humbly expect Yeshua, night and day, for He will return very soon to take His children with Him:  

" On that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem in the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from East to West by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward." (Zechariah 14:4)
