Sinkhole on the Temple Mount...

Hello all.... Sherry just posted a very interesting link that goes along with our last post. It has to do with a sink hole opening up at the Temple Mount. The article does a great job of putting this into prophetic perspective, so I will let Breaking Israel News take it from here.... But I must say it sure seems like God is trying to get their attention which is great news for us! Thank you Sherry! : )

Here is an excerpt and the link:
The Temple Mount has been the scene of several strange phenomena recently; large sections of the ancient stones suddenly falling away, an inexplicable mist that surrounded the Dome of the Rock, a snake crawling out from between the rocks, and now, a sinkhole has appeared adjacent to the Gate of Mercy.

  1. The Golden Gate, as it is called in Christian literature, is the only eastern gate of the Temple Mount and one of only two that used to offer access into the city from that side. It has been walled up since medieval times. The date of its construction is disputed and no archaeological work is allowed at the gatehouse, but opinions are shared between a late Byzantine and an early Umayyad date.

    The Hebrew name of the Golden Gate is Sha'ar HaRachamim (שער הרחמים), Gate of Mercy. In Jewish sources[dubious – discuss] the eastern gate of the Temple compound is called the Shushan Gate. If the Golden Gate does preserve the location of the Shushan Gate, which is only a presumption with no archaeological proof, this would make it the oldest of the current gates in Jerusalem's Old City Walls. According to Jewish tradition, the Shekhinah (שכינה) (Divine Presence) used to appear through the eastern Gate, and will appear again when the Anointed One (Messiah) comes (Ezekiel 44:1–3) and a new gate replaces the present one; that might be why Jews used to pray in medieval times for mercy at the former gate at this location,[1] another possible reason being that in the Crusader period, when this habit was first documented, they were not allowed into the city where the Western Wall is located. Hence the name "Gate of Mercy".

    In Arabic, it is known as Bab al-Dhahabi,[2] also written Bab al-Zahabi,[3] meaning "Golden Gate"; another Arabic name is the Gate of Eternal Life.[citation needed] Additionally, for Muslims each of the two doors of the double gate has its own name: Bab al-Rahma, "Gate of Mercy", for the southern one, and Bab al-Taubah, the "Gate of Repentance", for the northern one. Similar to Christians, Muslims generally believe this was the gate through which Jesus as Messiah, entered Jerusalem. -- Wikkipedia

    1. Nice history lesson, Jumboni. I learned a Arabic word for peace, Shlama. (Reading a novel)

    2. Cathi G., Thank you. There was more at Wikki but these sections seemed to have the most little nuggets in them for us and thought would be a convenient starter over here. Ofc, the one which simply leaps out at me are the details about the Shekinah Glory and this being the Gate which Our Lord Used to Enter His City, FORMALLY. Spiritually speaking, it seems THAT would be the moment of the Grand Test of Israel (Luke 19:40), their reaction to THAT Entrance at THAT Gate, which they clearly failed. Well, another Official Entrance is Scheduled (ibid.).

      As for the phenom, I would ask, what upholds the BANNERS of the city? (Think recent Law Passed about Israel) Well, the walls/towers, obviously. What upholds the Walls/Towers? The earth beneath them. What upholds the earth beneath them? The HAND OF G-D, surely.

      Daniel 2:21 Psalm 135:6-7 Hebrews 1:3

      That the foundations of the earth beneath Jerusalem would give way, ADJACENT to the Gate By Which Our Lord Entered, and was rejected, during these times (snakes, falling rock, etc.) is both consistent with larger themes and, as we know, as Prophetic as it is Indicting, Maranatha!

    3. I'll do a bit more digging and see if I can find the link to the photos I saw regarding the disintegration of the Temple Mount. It was "much more" than a crack in the sidewalk. Literal sinking holes are developed in several places. With that being said, I remember something else I read quite a while ago relating to the closing of the Eastern Gate. Purportedly it was closed permanently because of the belief Yeshua would return through the "Eastern Gate" and the Muslim thinking was by sealing it closed they could prevent this. Clearly, they have absolutely no understanding of the Power of the Mashiach!

      Way to go Sheila on the 43rd Triangle. I've been gnawing on that one as well and been completely stumped so this is quite a relief. Did it strike anyone else's spirit that it's an "Iron Triangle" as in Iron mixed with Miry Clay? I can't shake that one. I'll post links if I can find the other photos and the Eastern Gate story.

      One other point I would like for EVERYONE to consider. Yahweh uses whomever and whatever He chooses to confirm His Word and to act as Signs. He does not always use the holy to point to a Holy thing. I'll use this example since it should be fresh in all our minds if you've visited Unsealed lately. Yahweh chose to have Moses put a bronze serpent on a staff so those bitten by the "plague of vipers brought on by their disobedience as a judgement from Yahweh" could survive. Nehushtan was never a holy thing, yet ultimately Israel came to worship it as an idol. That has always given me cause for pause as to why He would have them look at a serpent, of all things. Perhaps it's to point out He is Lord over all - even the profane things! Blessings - Sherry

      Delete
    4. I've wondered about the why of a serpent staff too, Sherry and His Lordship over all seems to make right sense. We certainly know He planned to used death to give life. Holy Spirit chills again. Victory over death and hell, Praise The LORD!

      I did not think about the miry clay, but I believe these world powers have already been mixing with it in secret and are going to do so openly very soon--as soon as we are out of the way.

      I also understand that re the Easter Gate, the Muslims (Suleiman, maybe?) put a cemetery there hoping to block the coming of the Jewish Messiah even further. So many strange things going on, you could fill a notebook daily. Blessings, Sister!

      Delete
    5. Sherry, the bronze serpent is an interesting topic as it turns out to have been a misunderstanding of Moses in fact. Go search the literal meaning of Hebrew words what God told him to do compared what Moses eventually did (and the meaning behind and the later outcome / consequences).

    6. I've read a very similar study before and agree with his thoughts completely. It is a beautiful study and, I believe, completely accurate. This one, just like the previous one I'd read, left me with the same question, why a Seraph? I do not believe Moses erred in his reproduction of what God told him to make, Yahweh would have corrected it if that were true. Yahweh's thoughts are always deeper, greater than we can conceive and only in layers do we understand. Perhaps the real lesson for us today was A - to learn what ha'Satan was originally and thereby better understand what really happened in the garden and B - to learn how mankind always, in the time of Israel in the wilderness and later, will take a one time for one season miracle God, Himself does, and turn it into an idol. The thing I just am always left with is the question, "Why would God instruct Moses to do something He specifically forbade His people, then and now, to do - make an image of ANYTHING?" I get the whole argument of "familiars" etc., which makes it even more confusing in my very literal, logical brain. As usual, when I run across things like this, and I have several, I put them in my God Box in my head - you'll be pleased to know it just has a question mark on it, and when i get to Heaven or before then if He chooses, He'll make me understand it. In the meantime, I'm completely fine with, "I just don't understand it yet. I know God is right and the problem is in my understanding, but I don't get it yet." Nonetheless, it's a good study if you haven't gone down that road before its very instructive. Blessings - Sherry

  2. Shekinah means "Dwell", the feminine deity Hasidics pray to at Herod's Wailing Wall is not Jesus but Moshiach. The Glory of the LORD departed Solomon's Temple in Eze 8 by the same route Jesus did some 700 years later to Golgotha

  3. A small crack in a paveway is not yet a SINKHOLE. This is way exaggerated to create some neat Rabbinic story around it again IMO. And yes, Muslims never were to be called real archaeology experts as they tend to generally slander everything non-Muslim as 'not worth inspecting' but themselves are hindered by their own religion to e.g. dig up graves to identify human bones and traditions: https://www.al-fanarmedia.org/2016/05/arab-world-archaeologists-must-avoid-disturbing-islamic-graves/

    If anybody has recently watched NICK VANDERLAAN YTC he did a small series about his own research on the true Temple mount on Zion considering the "songs of ascent" Psalms 120-134, very recommended to watch!

    In most of bible history research articles, the "Eastern gate" of Nehemiah 3:29 and Ezekiel 44:1-3 are falsely intermingled as the gate in the city wall and the gate to the holiest of holy in the temple area are not the same of course. There is much confusion about which is/was/will be the REAL locations but as we know who the author of confusion is on this earth we know this is done deliberately.

    1. Too funny, Annabel. I remember looking at the before and after pictures and I thought are they serious? They looked the same except I thought there seemed to be a bit more of an indentation there on the right side where the cement meets the dirt. I did look at that crack - wondering where the sinkhole was.

  4. I heard rumours of Trump revealing his peace plan on Friday, Has anyone else heard this? Any one got any confirmation?

    I was just thinking, It has already got out in the media and news, that Trump and Netanyahu have both indicated that they would favor a 2 state solution. I wonder, would his speach (covenant) include if it comes out on on Friday, "...as some of you already know, I favor a 2 state solution, and having Jeresalem as the capital of Palestine, so on that I would just like to CONFIRM, that that is indeed my preferred option?"

    It feels so close. I pray it is. I pray we all go home soon.

Caleb grilled us up some dogs out back and, as is my M.O., blogging a bit through lunch.

      Seeking to keep the wings level and glide along and intentionally sit in the Co-pilot spot, today, haven't surfed, or anything. Funny thing, I decided to go 'all out' on my dogs, onions, kraut, spicy brown, the whole megillah, and as I was sitting down, the tune 'Take me out to the Ball Game' seemed to pop up, fittingly to my yummy lunch, no? Well, having had 43rd Triangles and such omm lately having BB suddenly appear in my afternoon warranted a hello. So, Hello :) Maranatha!

  8. This is the link to a short article explaining the Eastern Gate & why the Cemetery. This was the Muslim method of preventing Yeshua's reentry into the city at His Second Coming.

    1. I read the article on the blogspot Janet provided. There was a lot of info and pictures, (a link or two), a Jerusalem archeologist (1969) entered a mass grave under the Eastern gate (James Fleming) and saw the Eastern arch from Solomon's or Nehemiah's time. If excavated would see a gate like the Damascus gate that can be seen today. The poured concrete and the black fence were put up before the cemetery after he removed a stone or stumbled on stones after a rainfall and fell into this 8 ft hole and took pictures of a mass grave and saw the arch of the original Herodian gate.
      Josephus, War V pg 184-189 said the Eastern Gate enclosure temple wall was the only one not rebuilt by Herod the Great. Andy Kaufman said the two temples were located 110 meters North of the Dome of the Rock in immediate vicinity of the small Dome of the Tablets shrine on the main temple platform (Lambert Dolphintemplemount.org).
      The Eastern Gate (Golden Gate) was the Beautiful Gate mentioned in scripture.
      Also, a link to http://www.lamblion.us/2011/02/biblical-archaeology-eastern-gate.html?m=1
      Biblical Archaeology: The Eastern Gate
      Nathan Jones, 2011 which interviews Dr James Fleming​ with Nathan and Reagan before the Eastern Gate.

      Sherry's link was a short, quick read from Ray VanderLaan, The
      Eastern Gate built in 16th century, Herodian remains found a few years ago below the gate. Probably the gate Jesus used is below this gate. The cemetary (across the entire Eastern wall) was built thinking Jews would not cross over it because they would be considered unclean.

  10. Sheila, didn't know Unsealed had a new article by Jeff into your post above. It was very good. Jeff quoted, "But what could be more important than your relationship to God, and what place could possibly be better than the courts of heaven (Ps. 84:10)?"
    This moreso touched me with the reading I did on the Eastern Gate, etc. The Zion Gate I think and a photo shown of people mingling in the court area ... thoughts of ancient activities taking place.
    I used to always think I will just be a doorkeeper or something in Heaven ... which is awful to acknowledge. I will just be amazed to be there in Heaven! It seems so unfathomable, so unimaginable, so incomprehensible ... But, I guess that is what faith is. Yet, so true when we are leaning on the Rock.

Back to some 70 years figures regarding PENTECOST 2019 I found it interesting how Israel joined the United Nations on 5/11/1949 so if we might just get raptured that TUESDAY after 5/9/19 (or kind of before)?? Just thinking aloud about Daniel 9:2 the 70 years for Israel in "U.N. Babylon"... OK not really uplifting to think about such a long time waiting but might be a possibility of a " what if" case.

    1. Annabel~I believe there is definitely something to the 70th Anniversary aspect of Israel; namely, that I believe God will act before the 70th year is over.

      It gave me much-needed peace when Sandy Armstrong shared recently that God reminded him how Israel will continue to be in their 70th Anniversary year until May 14, 2019. . . It is my belief that a Middle East peace plan will come to pass before this 70th year is over. In fact, it may be completed this month of November.

    2. Thank you Lyn for posting this! We also have another Jewish 'milestone anniversary' today as there are exactly 80 years from the German Reichskristallnacht on 11/9/1938 which also gives me some historical clue to Jeremiah 16:16 ... It is somewhat of an awkward position to me to pray for their peace by knowing by which kind of tribulation ordained by God they have to achieve it.

      Delete
    3. Hmmm...Annabel. This reminds me of when John @WFTGD was talking about looking at Kristallnacht in connection with the extra 10 years of strength as having occurred "prior" to the past 70 yrs. I didn't realize that the 80th anniversary of that fell on this particular date. Maybe he was on to something with that. When I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, every night, it is in realization that it won't occur until the Prince of Peace is on the Throne there, so it's a joy for me to pray for that. And I always add to that prayer that His perfect Will be done for all of Israel. Blessings, Sister:-)

  13. Hey guys,
    I just discovered a handy tool for hitting the masses after the rapture with YOUR LEFT BEHIND LETTERS is you set the message to send on a particular date. E.G I have set my left behind letter to send to all my colleagues on the 1st Tues of December. @ 10:30am.. So if the rapture hasn't happened by that date, I can go into the message, and set the date for another month in the future.

    IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS, HERE ARE THE STEPS:

    In Microsoft Outlook 2013
    Click to COMPOSE A NEW EMAIL, Add in your entire address book, into the TO: box.
    (Paste in your left behind letter )
    Along the top of the email in the menus section, click on OPTIONS
    Click on the DELAY DELIVERY
    Set the date to your preferred date and time in the future.
    Then HIT THE SEND BUTTON.

    Then just set a reminder in your phone to amend the send date, closer to the time if need be.

    Just thought it might be handy to get the word out there, when we are gone.


    PS it is nerve wracking writing that sort of message to all your colleagues, and wondering, if that DELAYED SENDING option will ACTUALLY WORK on this particular email. you wonder, will all the big wigs, and chiefs get that message now, YIKES!!.. anyway, I tested it, and it works.. bu just to make sure it works with your version of outlook, do a test email to yourself with the settings activated, to verify there is an actual delay.

  14. Hello All,
    I was doing some reading last night with the blogger issues Shelia was having bouncing around in the back of my head, then the HS hit me with the thought.... "What would you do if Goggle, who owns Blogger, took down this page without notice?" My first thought reaction was... Oh no, how would we all stay connected? Then he seemed to suggest that I compile a private emergency contact list. I am hoping that I will never need to use it, but if something does happen and our fellowship is taken away, then I would at least have a way to pass information and keep us connected.

    So if you are led.... please send an email to: freegiftmn@yahoo.com with the words "My Contact Info" in the subject line. Please include your name, comment name if different, email and phone number. It might be helpful to know the general area where you live as well possibly.

    I know some of you may not like the idea, but I feel led to ask so that is what I am doing. God Bless you all.

I believe the way He is going to do this is not anything we could have imagined a year ago and we were not exactly ripe for the picking just yet. It would be mind blowing had He not spent a little more time preparing our hearts and spirits for what He is about to do. All of us who are His are crying out to Him in anguish of this world we are seeing disintegrate before our eyes morally, physically and spiritually and He is hearing our cries. The enemy is attacking as viciously as his leash will allow, but it's almost over with for the children of our God. We just have to trust Him with all that is in us as we are in Him and He is in us, Amen. Looking up, Sister and looking forward to that trip Home to His Feet with all of our Brethren. Blessings and Maranatha!

  17. Promise #312:
    My love is patient and kind, and does not keep track of wrongs.


    1 Corinthians 13:4-5
    “Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy.
    Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately,
    doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil…”


    Since the Bible says in 1 John 4:16 that 'God is love', I think it is safe to say that we could exchange the word 'love' in 1 Corinthians for the word 'God' if we wanted to. Think about reading this passage of Scripture as a description of the character and nature of God Himself.

    God is patient. God is kind. God doesn't envy. He isn't boastful. God is not proud. God isn't rude nor is He selfish. God isn't angered easily and God does not keep track of when He has been wronged.

    The love that God has for us will completely overwhelm us if we let it. Not one of us has experienced this kind of unconditional love in human relationships. The best horizontal love is but a shadow of the ocean of love that God has for each one of us. May the Holy Spirit help us to continue to explore His amazing love, setting sail on the vast ocean of His kindness where He keeps no records of the times that we hurt Him.

    Father, take us deeper in the depths of your love today! We open our hearts up to your unconditional, eternal love and we ask that we would know the vastness of your immeasurable love for us more today than ever before!

  18. G'day Family, Blessings. Just watched Shelley L "Prophetic Word" (Final Exams Are Here) over on YT and Shelly's Word resonated for us all. While Shelley L's 'Final' and it's unique challenge was for her, it seems likely many of us will find a similar challenge on our own, so wanted to bring to your attn. Again, while many will also NOT have such a task in front of them now, but, we ALL are working through deciphering the question at the top of ALL or our test pages, currently, which goes something like, if #### Watchers spend ### hours digging into timeless Treasures of ABBA and Wondering about Infinite possibilities ad infinitum, then what will the time be on the clock when none of them got it right? Maranatha!

    5. I did watch Shelley L. a bit ago and yes, He likes us to be willing to go where it doesn't make any human sense to go. And this other-worldly math problem she saw in her dream sure seems to confirm this time-fold thing that may well be occurring RIGHT NOW. I do believe there was more to what she saw than she might have realized re the message to the Body.

      It's been an interesting day for sure. Now for the BING Art, yesterday and today:

      I didn't pursue it any further than the obvious yesterday because I just ain't going any deeper into that, but what it depicted was the enemy's version of Matt.25. An Asian/Indian holiday celebration that involves the dressing up in finery and lighting of oil lamps to go out and meet/worship some goddess/idol to garner one's good fortune for the year, or something to that effect.

      But TODAY it depicts Manatees in Florida's Blue Spring State Park. Blue Springs is the SAFE HARBOR for these meek, mild and graceful creatures. It is a protected area for them where they can swim and eat without fear of injury or harm. And many of them are tracked and identified by the SCARS THEY BEAR from collisions with careless boaters.

      I was scrolling through some comments @Freaking over Jesus video 6:43 Waking up to the sound of a Shofar. The commenter mentioned dreaming of a catamaran and MANATEES. She said someone looked some stuff up and told her it had to do with Crossing the River on Tabernacles. Don't know the source for that, but it did inspire me to check out Manatee in the Strong's. I told myself if this has anything to do with the Rapture, I'm gonna cry. Well, pass the tissue...
      Egem val for Manatee is 354.

      G#354--analempsis--a taking up, lifting up, ascension. 1x Luke 9:51

      H#354--ayyal--a hart, stag, a deer--which immediately reminded me of Ps.42:1 KJV.

      If that's not enough, @Freaking over Jesus, Chanda, (I believe is her name) was onto 6:43, the time the sound of a Shofar woke her from sleep. She looked up the Strong's meaning of #643 in the Hebrew and shared that it means a PALACE or PAVILLION.

      I looked up the Gk#643--aposkeuazo--prepare, equip, to prepare for a journey, depart, to pack up one's baggage, take up--Carriages. 1x Acts 21:15

      So many people are seeing all kinds of confirmations for this specific time frame that is like no other in the way these days between Nov. 7 and Nov.11 are a meshing of times and seasons. 1Thess.5:1-6 KJV

      I had a nap time dream in which someone I didn't recognize but thought was supposed to be a brother in Christ was berating me severely for this "ridiculous watching" I was obsessed with. He wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise until I threw up my hands and was walking away from him and his hateful accusations when the phone woke me up. Again-- 1Thess.5!
      (But then I had to go pick up Jayden from school today with Strep Throat, so he wasn't quite through with me:-/)

      And Jeff, I believe you were catching all of those 4's in Game 4 of the World Series because that number is a GAME CHANGER re this WORLD.

      Egem val. of Four is 360. (The Authority of the Nail coming full circle?)

      H#360--eyaluth--my help 1x Ps.22:19 (The power of the Cross)
      G#360--analuo--to depart, return 2x Luke12:36 and Phil.1:23

      I know there's more, but we've got a big lightning storm moving in. Got to unplug. Blessings and Maranatha!!!

    8. Lyn, great article, Sister. What you said about the 70 yrs sat well with me spiritually. That's why I think there is some credence to how John @WFTGD was seeing the 10 years of strength re Israel just prior to the beginning of the last 70 years. It certainly required strength to survive the Holocaust as a people. And the personal part about our Lord never being too late, most of us can relate to. I've told the hubby as he tries to worry about next month's bills that our Lord does not want us to be as comfortable right now as He has so graciously allowed in times past. He wants us in a MANNA stage. Provision and information-wise. He WILL give us what we need on a daily basis, but He also wants us ready to DECAMP at a moment's (atomos G823:-) notice, Hallelujah! Prepare to meet thy Maker!!!

      TY for sharing:-)

    9. So, if #### Watchers spend ### hours digging into timeless Treasures of ABBA and Wondering about Infinite possibilities ad infinitum, then what will the time be on the clock when none of them got it right? That would be the PRESENT Time, now, wouldn't it? :)

      Sheila B., I agree with your comments about 'this much, but not much more'. As I have worked through various teeth issues these past months on the continuous I.V drip of y'all's prayers, along with various $$ issues keeping things tight but not terrible, I have felt The Spirit's Hand on my leash using such to help me keep the correct foci on the correct things and not become too enamored of the world or its delights (Prov 23:6; 2 Peter 2:20).

      Sister(s) and Bro's, once again about as revved as can be and so many, many details and Watchers lined up on the Wall, and apparently all looking a the same growing spec and dust on the horizon, Oh! that it be so! oh My! Maranatha!

  19. Family, Colleen M's latest drawing typology between Lazarus 4-days laying in wait for Our Lord to Raise him resonates strongly with me. I have been Shown the Truth of the 'refrains' of this period, in my spirit prior to watching her video, and they are like a lilting melody, rising and falling, on the seventh, on the ninth, on the eleventh. So, we wait and we Wonder as we watch, yet, this Watch wasn't a short-shift, but a 5 day-er.

    My point here, as I posted after watching her video, was that I noticed that, over the next 36 hours, or so, we hit the mid-point in that 4-day stretch. Esp in light of the 'nudge' Brad seemed to just have, such a 'mid-point', on of the darkest 4-days in history, would be, by one definition, "Mid-Night", no? Well, back on personal soapbox here, hunker down for THE Midnight Cry 'oft spoken of yet not quite sounded, and stay calm and know where your towel is and that Jesus is Lord, ...

    2. Annabel, it is a very complex problem. She is absolutely right about the Talmud and we must steer clear of it at all times other than to see for ourselves and understand their thinking on some really wacky interpretations. With that said, I have been warned personally by one of the early followers of the Benuns about Mrs. Benun and some of her teachings. I did not hear one thing in this clip I disagree with, but after following their ministry and supporting it for quite some time this lady came away completely shattered and she is a very devoted, rooted and grounded follower of the Word of God. I think if her roots were not very deep, she may not have come back to her senses, but with help from her family she did. I say this to add caution on BOTH SIDES of this issue. Israel (including Netanyahu, Breaking Israel and many, many of the leaders of Israel) are currently apostate and God knew they would return that way. He'll deal with it, but their eyes will not be opened until after we leave. It is the classic problem I found in the Hebrew Roots Movement and on the flip side of the coin in the Christian Church. People tend to either hoist someone or some teaching up to be worshipped or they demonize them. The truth is the narrow path in the middle. I have honestly been exposed to more anti-semitism in the Hebrew Roots movement than almost anywhere else I've been. Conversely, in Christian circles, anything Jewish is almot idolized. They do not understand Talmud, Mishna and the importance the Rabbi's place on their own interpretations from scripture. Again, narrow road is where we must be, not on the ditch on either side. Discernment is the key and the response we see in the Christian church to anything Jewish is the attitude I was referring to when I spoke of the "allure" of the very old spirits. These are spirits which draw you in, very, very old religious spirits. I do not refer to the people, but to principalities and powers. I've been blessed to be able to move between the positions and study them all and discern what is happening, but if you don't get a heads up, you will be deceived. As always, thanks for your watchful eye and I wanted to issue that caution as it relates to the Benuns. You will be very interested to learn he teaches Jesus was a vegan and some of the Gnostic gospels are far more accurate than our New Testament. Just a word of warning - very seductive old spirits in operation there. Blessings - Sherry

    3. Totally agree with those observations, Sherry. When I first got on YT, Israeli News Live was one of the first sites I found and I was intrigued by the reporting--at first. It didn't take long to start getting a strange vibe from the political positions they take. He seemed to me to be a Russian sympathizer. Anyway, I walked away from it for the most part only looking now and again re Israel and then I try to read between the lines. I also look at these odd events/signs the Rabbi's promote (and may, or may not instigate) from a Biblical standpoint. I'm not concerned with what they think or how they postulate, but rather what our God has said, or indicated about it in the Scriptures. I do believe Israel acts as a time clock and I do believe when we are watching for Jesus, He gives us the eyes to see the relevance of these things re the time we are now living in. Blessings, Sister:-)

    4. Sherry, Every time you mention ditches, I'm tempted to share a story I wrote back aways. Maybe a light note would be welcome on such a heavy day.

      Seeking the Best Option

      Good versus evil is a reliable theme for stories and has been for a very long time. I saw a portion of the classic ‘Narnia’ the other evening, and a singular exchange jumped off the screen for me.

      During a crisis of impending war, the choice for the good ones seemed to be to either stay in the castle and die, or go forth and die. The young queen urged the young warrior to stop and think. She said: “You’re acting like there are only two options!”

      I loved that. It reminded me of the ‘ditch’ principle. It comes up so often. There is a natural tendency to slide down the slippery slope into one ditch or the other rather than weighing the options mindfully to find the higher ground.

      When we feel like we’re being forced into a mucky place, we need to take a deep breath and pray for solid ground. Maybe that’s one way of finding the ‘way of escape.’ Abba can lift us out of confusion and despair through revelation of the best option.

    5. And Sheila, I have one for you after your recent electrical storm. It looks like I'm creeping out of the broom closet.

      YOU …. You light up my life

      Lightning occurs when a positive force from above the clouds attracts a positive force from the ground. In between, there is a negative charge. This can be compared to Messiah above the clouds and saints on the ground, needing to pass through the realm which is still, at this point, under Satan’s influence. This would be a constant throughout the history of man—that there is a penetrable barrier creating a challenge to making the power sizzle.

      Science calls this charge from above the ‘leader stroke’ and the rising up from the ground of the electrical energy is called the ‘return stroke.’ So, could this also apply to the resurrection when Messiah is said to remain in the sky and the saints rise to meet him? And this would be some time before the forces of evil that presently dominate the world are subdued.

      Just something to think about the next time the sky is lit up with blinding fingers of energy.

    6. Yes CY, that is an awesome way to think about it. Lightening, especially the cloud to ground type, is so fierce in it's raw power that the only thing I've ever been able to compare it to is the the respect rightfully demanded by The Almighty God. It can be terrifying and thrilling to watch at the same time. And very intimidating when it blows the cabinets off of the wall like it did at this house we were visiting one day and on another when it hit the ground just outside our house in Florida and blew long buried rocks straight up out of the ground and threw a splintered railroad tie a few hundred feet away. It fried both of my TV's. They sounded like they were full of sand afterwards. Lots and lots of respect for that power from the Heavens, but I do imagine that it'd be a magnificently transforming way to go up:-)

    10. C&C and Lynn, I could not agree more with your and Perry's assertions about the EMP effect of the Resurrection/Rapture event. If you look at the amount of energy it took to imprint a negative on the Shroud of Turin when Jesus was resurrected and then you multiply that by several million + and I'm praying hundreds of millions then the earthquakes will be the least of the worries of the Left Behind. If they do not have electronic equipment protected in Faraday cages they will be pounded back to the middle ages. Our God is an Awesome God. He's got this. Sheila, love those stories and C&C I agree with Sheila - more please! Blessings - Sherry

    11. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Cor 13:12

      Note, what we see is a poor reflection, not an illusion, nor a myth. We are also not blind here: "...we see...". For the Manifestations of these Events to be somewhat 'mirrored' in creation we observe, as discussed, and to then exponentially expand upon that in a somewhat linear, though Biblical fashion, is a Scriptural and also Empirically sound worldview in terms of the 'scientific' perspective on such things. This is where the Creationist gets a wry smile, Maranatha!

    13. @ Sherry I know these rumours about Steven Ben Nun being a Gnostic and I dont agree with everything what he says though but oddly enough every time I watch him (admittedly not so much often) expound on the word of God there is the Holy Spirit speaking so this cannot be with a Gnostic. Anyways, his wife Jana is capable of speaking and understanding Russia because she is from the CZECH REPUBLIC and was therefore forced to learn this language under a communist regime. Her observation of the Russia press is very helpful because you only can read (also between the lines and find nationally relevant articles) if you have learned the language like mother tongue like Steven does interpret Hebrew. The body of Christ can only profit from those brethren educated in different languages I think.

      https://youtu.be/jkJSFZ8dqWI

      IDK where you take this Gnostic rumour from but I wouldn't listen to it if I were you. People can also learn and develop maturity over the years you know. As Christians we MUST be such kind of people.

    15. Annabelle, it is not a rumor. I stopped listening to him myself several years ago when he was pushing the vegan Jesus thing and casting aspersions on the New Testament and Paul's writings. I made a comment in one of those videos disputing what he was pushing and a lady replied to me and contacted me via Private Message and relayed her experience. She was in hook, line and sinker and it was very difficult for her to break free from the teachings. She was a supporting member of the ministry so it wasn't some rehashed article on the internet, it was her own personal experience. He interviewed Chuck Missler after that time. As you should know by now, I believe I can learn from everybody, even if it is nothing more than what NOT TO PAY ATTENTION TO. I, too, have gained insight and wisdom from benDenun and make no judgements about his intent or certainly his salvation. Mine was a word of caution only based on my own experience in listening to older videos and this ladies very difficult personal experience with their ministry which she relayed to me directly. I listen to him occasionally, but do so with a large grain of salt and only offered the same advice to others, you included. BTW, I think it is wrong to assume you cannot learn from someone who holds heretical teachings. There is always error mixed with good in all of us, some just more so than others. There is none perfect, no not one. Again, my repeated caution there are very old spirits who operate within many ministries to cause error and they are very seductive. We must be as gentle as doves and as wise as serpents. Never throw the baby out with the bath water - pray, discern and caution others to do the same. Blessings - Sherry

  22. Jimboni, A long time ago (three days ago?) you mentioned ‘refrain’ which triggered my urge to share. With all these triggers, you’d think I’d be gun-shy, but it seems to be the opposite. Here’s a story I wrote last year:

    What’s My Refrain?

    A solemn and precocious little girl aptly named Salomé wrote a song when she was only five years old. It was called: ‘The whole world is fighting and Yahweh’s not happy about it.’ Though her parents had intended to protect her from that kind of knowing, she somehow gathered a perspective from both heaven and earth.

    That dear story reminded me that we all have a song. Our outlook on life, our insights and resolutions create a persona that sings out our message. The verses of our song tell the story of our everyday peaks and valleys. The refrain is the constant.

    At the end of the day, what are we telling ourselves? What is our refrain? It should be something that reflects our dearest hopes and expectation. Rather than a litany of our anguished thoughts, our refrain should be something inspiring, true and everlasting. Something that resets our focus from the moment to an eternal perspective.

    The storms of life will inevitably buffet us, but there is always a safe place to which we can return.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
