WHERE ARE THE PASTORS in KENTUCKY SUPPORTING HER? Where is church repenting and standing withRowan County Clerk Kim Davis?
I believe that she is America's LAST gasp before the final judgment. She is giving the church in America a LAST chance. She fears the Lord and truly is one of the Lord's blessed handmaidens.
It is difficult for me not to blister the hirelings who call themselves pastors. They are cowards in the face of those who hate the LORD and His word. I believe that Kim Davis is God's last chance from the Lord before the final judgment, which is bearing down on us as I write this.
Where is God's church in America?
I want to know what the Pastors in Kentucky are doing? Please tell me where they are hiding, so we can smoke them out of whatever tall grass they are hiding in. The bottom line is these "pastors", along with the vast majority of the church, have lost the fear of the LORD and His holiness.
Tonight on my radio show, we will pray what the entire church should be praying along with repenting before the Lord.
For several years, I offered pray time like this over the radio show and so few attended. What is the rest of God's people thinking? Why are they not crying out to the Lord, as I really believe God is about to shut and seal the door of awesome judgment on America.
The LORD God of Israel will defend His holy institution of marriage which His church failed to do. It surrendered without a fight to His enemies! As I said before, Kentucky Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is one of the Lord's choice handmaidens.
Watch the stock market as this is the way for God to very quickly bring America to its knees in crushing judgment.
"A defiant Kentucky county clerk, who has been ordered to face a federal judge on Thursday in a hearing about her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, says she won't resign. “Some people have said I should resign, but I have done my job well,” Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis said in a statement posted to the website of the lawfirm that represents her, Liberty Counsel. “I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage,” Davis said in the statement. “To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience.”
September Slip: Markets Pounded Amid Factory Fears 09/01/15 The market dropped 470 points today. There is no hope for the US economy as the Lord has made it clear that it is under judgment and coming down because of the homoseuxal agenda. The hour of God's final judgment for America is now very close. I hope that you sought the Lord and are prepared for what is coming now like a tsunami.
Revelation 16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
BIBLE PROPHECY WILL BE FULFILLED ON THE 4TH SEPTMEBER 2015 BY Harry Moskoff
I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to publish this tidbit of news I discovered in Friday morning’s newspaper, but by now everyone must surely know. On page 10 of the Jerusalem Post, there was a small article that happened to catch my attention. I would have expected it to be placed on the front page (knowing its significance), but nevertheless, there it was. I had been patiently waiting for this event to happen (along with many other people).
The article, which you can also find originally posted on Reuters, states: “The White House said on Thursday that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman would meet with President Barack Obama in Washington on Sept. 4. The two leaders will discuss Yemen, Syria and steps to counter Iran’s destabilizing activities in the region.” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told this to reporters who were traveling on Air Force One. The story goes on to say that US President Barack Obama wants to “shore up relations” after a period of tension regarding the US-led nuclear deal with Iran.
The timing is uncanny though, since this visit is scheduled to come less than two weeks before a Congressional vote on the nuclear agreement with Iran. Furthermore, the article points out clearly that the gist of the meeting is to discuss “steps to counter Iran’s destabilizing activities in the region.”
Can you smell the fear there? One of the things I learned in my Executive Counter-Terrorism course at IDT was that it’s the “infidel” (aka – moderate) Sunni Arabs in Saudi Arabia that are first on the Iranian (Shi’ite) nuclear hit list. Before Israel even – despite all the rhetoric to the contrary.
But here’s where it gets interesting. Very interesting. All this has been mapped out over 1500 years ago in the following Jewish scriptural sources:
Yoma 10a in the Talmud – “Rabbi Yochanan said in the name of Rabbi Yehuda in the name of Rabbi Ilayi: In the time to come, Rome will fall at the hands of Persia.”
Well, how it that going to happen? We definitely know that present-day Persia and Rome intensely dislike each other ever since the Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US was revealed (in Nov. 2011). The above verse may in fact elude to the final battle of Gog and Magog that we may witness at the End of Days.
But here is something closer to home. The following passage is from a Midrash (an ancient text originally compiled circa 500 AD). Keep in mind that Midrashic literature is not always meant to be taken at face value, but is usually coming to teach an historic lesson that all can learn from.
Yalkut Shemoni (Isaiah, #499) – “Rabbi Yitzchak said: The year that Melekh HaMashiach (King Messiah) will be revealed, all the kings (leaders) of the nations will be struggling against each other. The leader of Persia (Iran) will contest with an Arab leader and the Arab leader will go to Aram/Edom (the Western Superpower) to get council from him. The leader of Persia will respond and [attempt to] bring destruction to the entire world. All the nations of the world will be trembling and shaking and falling on their faces. They will be seized by pains like labor pains. The Jewish people will be overcome by panic and fear, saying: “Where can we go? Where can we go?” And the Messiah will say to them: My children, do not fear, everything I did I did only for you! Why are you frightened? Don’t be afraid–the days of your redemption have arrived!”
I’d say this particular Midrash is not just conjecture, but pretty specific!
But when the Midrash speaks about destroying the world, for instance, it begs the question: Is this statement to be taken literally, or does it refer perhaps to another type of destruction? Iran and ISIS intend to destroy other things in the world as well, one of which is Democracy, and replace it with a global Islamic Caliphate. Or maybe it points to the poisoning of ecosystems and drinking water sources throughout the world by means of terror attacks, etc. Maybe it’s all three! (heaven forbid)
Rabbi Yonasan Eibshetz (1690-1764) in his book Ya’arot Dvash – “At a certain moment the time will come when the Messiah should have already arrived but the redemption has not yet come. The Messiah will ask how it could be that the time for redemption has arrived and he still undergoes sufferings? The response that he will receive is that he must wait for nine months. Why? In order to wait for the fall of Persia (Iran) at the hands of Edom (the Christian West), and then the final redemption will come!”
No doubt Jerusalem will end up in the centre of all this by then as well. The main thing for us is to be hopeful that the Redemption of the Jews, and all peoples, should happen in a merciful way, and not followed by sorrow and servitude!
Each one of us can actually affect that outcome by strengthening our connection to the Creator and our commitment to Him, each in his/her own way, in our everyday lives, and by doing random acts of kindness to each other. Sounds corny, but this stuff really does have an effect on High.
This piece wouldn’t be complete without at least a couple other hints that also point to this upcoming year as being especially appropriate for the Messianic arrival. In the Bible Codes the words “Melech HaMashiach” – Hebrew for King Messiah, are found crisscrossed with the words Obama and “Shoresh Nachash” (meaning Source of the Snake). In fact, the numerical equivalent, or Hebrew gematria, for Barack Obama, and also Snake, both equal 358, the same exact number as the word: Mashiach! (his antithesis?) There are actually so many more hints available on this stuff that it’s outside the scope here.
My take on all this? Nobody alive today can pretend to know for-sure if all these sources pertain to this year specifically, but that little article that I chanced upon reveals the most striking fulfillment so far of prophecy, right here in the 2015 daily papers. One things you CAN bet on though, is that this Sept. 4th I’ll be checking the news.
Historians now say that the parchment may predate Muhammad and believe that this discovery could rewrite the early history of Islam
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."Galatians 1:6-8 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: When Muhammed wasn't busy borrowing characters from the Bible like the Angel Gabriel, it turns out that he also may have been borrowing the entire Qu'ran itself from another author who lived around the same time he did. If this recent discovery turns out to be true, it will expose the entire early history of Islam as completely fabricated from the way Muhammed said it happened. Turns out that maybe Muhammed and Mormon founder Joseph Smith have more in common than we had suspected with their shared love of magical visits from imaginary angels.
Muslim tradition teaches that the Prophet Muhammed received the "Holy Qu'ran" directly from the Angel Gabriel, memorized it and passed it on orally to his followers. But carbon dating on the world's oldest Qu'ran may just prove that the Qu'ran was already written and published by someone else who lived right around the same time as Muhammed did. Is the entire religion of Islam actually based on a plagiarized document?
Fragments of what is believed to be the world's oldest Koran. Several historians have said it could even predate the Prophet Muhammad
Fragments of the world's oldest Koran, found in Birmingham last month, may predate the Prophet Muhammad and could even rewrite the early history of Islam, according to scholars. The pages, thought to be between 1,448 and 1,371 years old, were discovered bound within the pages of another Koranfrom the late seventh century at the library of the University of Birmingham.
Written in ink in an early form of Arabic script on parchment made from animal skin, the pages contain parts of the Suras, or chapters, 18 to 20, which may have been written by someone who actually knew the Prophet Muhammad - founder of the Islamic faith.
Historian Tom Holland, told the Times: 'It destabilises, to put it mildly, the idea that we can know anything with certainty about how the Koran emerged - and that in turn has implications for the history of Muhammad and the Companions.'
Keith Small, from the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library, added: 'This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran's genesis, like thatMuhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven. source
Islamic State reveals new gold coins in bid to break 'enslavement' of capitalism
"This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians."Daniel 5:26-28 (KJV)
EDITOR"S NOTE: The Islamic State, like the meteoric rise of Nazi Germany before them, continue to grow exponentially because the powers that could stop them refuse to do so. With the exception of a few pusillanimous air strikes, nothing is being done, and like a hive of inner-city cockroaches, the reach of ISIS has become terrifyingly large. One man, Adolf Hitler, brought the free world to the brink of destruction because no one stopped him when they could have. ISIS has more tangible power right now than Hitler and all his henchmen did in 1932. America, hear what the Prophet Daniel has to say. Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin...
Islamic State, ISIS, revealed its new currency in a one-hour-long video entitled The Rise of the Khilafah and the Return of the Gold Dinar on Saturday, 29 August. The group said that the creation of the currency will help to break the "enslavement" of capitalism underpinned by the US dollar.
The release, which is narrated by an IS fighter with an American accent coupled with Arabic subtitles, shows plans for new gold, silver and copper coins in the group's self-proclaimed caliphate which straddles the Iraqi-Syrian border. The group calls capitalism a "Satanic system" and goes on to condemn interest payments as the "most insidious instrument" of the US economy.
The footage was released by IS' media wing Al-Hayat, and comes after the group announced it had plans to mint a new currency last November. The new currency will free members of IS' caliphate from the "tyrannical monetary system that was imposed on the Muslims and was a reason for their enslavement and impoverishment, and the wasting the fortunes of the Ummah [the community of Muslims worldwide], making it easy prey in the hands of the Jews and Crusaders," the group said in a statement, according to atranslation by jihadi-monitoring company SITE Intelligence.
Iranian arrogance from the recent win-win for them in Obama’s “deal” shows Iran actually believes they can destroy Israel and capture Jerusalem—a prime element in their zeal to establish a new caliphate.

I am happy to report that after the website blackout last weekend, we have restored services to Rapture Forums. The short story is that due to website growth, we had to move off shared hosting and onto a "semi-dedicated" hosting account. While this is a significant upgrade for us, I believe that this will enable Rapture Forums to stay up without any service interruptions in the future. I apologize for the downtime last weekend and hopefully we have things resolved now. I have seen a noticable increase in website performance and accessing the site is faster than ever before. Praise the Lord for helping us get this fixed.
