Are there indications of a Second Coming of a Messiah in the Old Testament?

image from ministry127.comIt has been claimed by both Jews and Bible critics that the Old Testament says nothing about a Messiah who would come twice. In other words, the New Testament teaching of a Second Coming is nowhere indicated in the Old Testament. The purpose of this article, as shouldn't be surprising, is to show that such a teaching is indicated from the text of the Old Testament.

There are not many verses clearly pointing to a Messiah in the Old Testament. Of those that do, it is unquestionable that all are simply prophecies of a Messiah; they don't directly indicate that these prophecies apply to a first or second coming of this Messiah. However, the chapters containing Messianic prophecies in the book of Daniel, when compared to each other, indirectly support the belief of a Second Coming. The first reference to the Messiah in this book is Daniel 7:13. This verse says:
"I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him." (RSV)
Verse 14 then says:
"And to him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed."
Certainly if we don't look at the rest of Daniel these verses would be taken as a prophecy of the first and only coming of the Messiah. If anything, one would think that these verses show that there could be no Second Coming, as verse 14 speaks of Him receiving everlasting dominion. The reasoning would be that it wouldn't make much sense that at the first coming the Messiah would not receive everlasting dominion. He should receive everything that the verse says He will receive the first time He comes. If not, why not? It's difficult to believe that a Messiah could come the first time and not receive everything promised. Personally I think that at the time of the first coming Christ did receive such things, though the kingdom that would not be destroyed didn't come then. To refute the above argument, I need to appeal to other texts. Let's look at the next prophecy of the Messiah.

Daniel 9:24-27 contains prophecy regarding the first coming of an anointed one, or Messiah. These verses say:
"Seventy weeks of years are decreed concerning your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place. Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off, and shall have nothing; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war; desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator."

A new supervolcano is brewing under Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire

Something unexpected has been gradually making itself known to geologists in the United States. A huge mass of molten rock is creeping upwards beneath the nation’s north eastern states.

“The upwelling we detected is like a hot-air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England,” says Rutgers University geophysicist Professor Vadim Levin.

Traces of the brooding mass only became evident through a large-scale new seismic study.    The idea that there may be a super volcano brewing under Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire is something of a surprise.

“Our study challenges the established notion of how the continents on which we live behave,” Professor Levin says. “It challenges the textbook concepts taught in introductory geology classes.”

The region is geologically stable. There are no active volcanoes.   READ MORE


The Last Great Empire on Earth

By Bob Barney 

Beast4 Daniel, a prophet of God, lived over 2,500 years ago. He was a Jewish captive, living in Babylon, and during the time of King Nebuchadnezzar, he was given the meaning of a dream, by God, laying out before him the last four great empires that would rule the earth. One night during the second year of the king's reign, Nebuchadnezzar had some disturbing dreams that neither he nor his “wise-men” could decipher the meaning. He was told about the man named Daniel, and of his God, the God of the universe, who had the ability to interpret anyone's dreams.

 

Upon meeting the king, Daniel said: {NLT version Daniel 2:29} “While Your Majesty was sleeping, you dreamed about coming events. He who reveals secrets has shown you what is going to happen.

30. And it is not because I am wiser than anyone else that I know the secret of your dream, but because God wants you to understand what was in your heart.

31 “In your vision, Your Majesty, you saw standing before you a huge, shining statue of a man. It was a frightening sight.

32 The head of the statue was made of fine gold. Its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs were bronze,

33 its legs were iron, and its feet were a combination of iron and baked clay.

34 As you watched, a rock was cut from a mountain, but not by human hands. It struck the feet of iron and clay, smashing them to bits.

35 The whole statue was crushed into small pieces of iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold. Then the wind blew them away without a trace, like chaff on a threshing floor. But the rock that knocked the statue down became a great mountain that covered the whole earth.

36 “That was the dream. Now we will tell the king what it means.

Neb_dream_IMG 37 Your Majesty, you are the greatest of kings. The God of heaven has given you sovereignty, power, strength, and honor.

38 He has made you the ruler over all the inhabited world and has put even the wild animals and birds under your control. You are the head of gold.

39 “But after your kingdom comes to an end, another kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to take your place. After that kingdom has fallen, yet a third kingdom, represented by bronze, will rise to rule the world.

40 Following that kingdom, there will be a fourth one, as strong as iron. That kingdom will smash and crush all previous empires, just as iron smashes and crushes everything it strikes.

41 The feet and toes you saw were a combination of iron and baked clay, showing that this kingdom will be divided. Like iron mixed with clay, it will have some of the strength of iron.

42 But while some parts of it will be as strong as iron, other parts will be as weak as clay.

  43 This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But they will not hold together, just as iron and clay do not mix

 44 “During the reigns of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a ki ngdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever.

45 That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain, though not by human hands, that crushed to pRock toesieces the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God was showing the king what will h appen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain.”

This is one of the most important warnings in all human history, hardly understood by anyone! Before getting into world history, you must ask yourself two basic questions. #1 Is the God of the Bible real, and #2, do you believe that God can predict the future? These two questions are really the most important questions you will ever ask yourself; your very life depends on the knowledge that God Almighty has revealed what is going to happen in the world. The statue made in four parts represents the last four empires that would rule the earth. God says so right here: “During the reigns of those kings (the last and 4th empire), the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever. We know, from these few scriptures that the fourth great kingdom after Daniel would be the one that Jesus Himself destroys, and then sets up His own millennial kingdom.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY – Battle of Little Bighorn – 1876

Via History.com

On this day in 1876, Native American forces led by Chiefs Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull defeat the U.S. Army troops of Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer in a bloody battle near southern Montana’s Little Bighorn River.

  image from i2.wp.com

Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, leaders of the Sioux tribe on the Great Plains, strongly resisted the mid-19th-century efforts of the U.S. government to confine their people to reservations. In 1875, after gold was discovered in South Dakota’s Black Hills, the U.S. Army ignored previous treaty agreements and invaded the region. This betrayal led many Sioux and Cheyenne tribesmen to leave their reservations and join Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse in Montana. By the late spring of 1876, more than 10,000 Native Americans had gathered in a camp along the Little Bighorn River–which they called the Greasy Grass–in defiance of a U.S. War Department order to return to their reservations or risk being attacked.

In mid-June, three columns of U.S. soldiers lined up against the camp and prepared to march. A force of 1,200 Native Americans turned back the first column on June 17. Five days later, General Alfred Terry ordered Custer’s 7th Cavalry to scout ahead for enemy troops. On the morning of June 25, Custer drew near the camp and decided to press on ahead rather than wait for reinforcements.

At mid-day, Custer’s 600 men entered the Little Bighorn Valley. Among the Native Americans, word quickly spread of the impending attack. The older Sitting Bull rallied the warriors and saw to the safety of the women and children, while Crazy Horse set off with a large force to meet the attackers head on. Despite Custer’s desperate attempts to regroup his men, they were quickly overwhelmed. Custer and some 200 men in his battalion were attacked by as many as 3,000 Native Americans; within an hour, Custer and every last one of his soldier were dead.

The Battle of Little Bighorn–also called Custer’s Last Stand–marked the most decisive Native American victory and the worst U.S. Army defeat in the long Plains Indian War. The gruesome fate of Custer and his men outraged many white Americans and confirmed their image of the Indians as wild and bloodthirsty. Meanwhile, the U.S. government increased its efforts to subdue the tribes. Within five years, almost all of the Sioux and Cheyenne would be confined to reservations.


What is the historical evidence that Jesus Christ lived and died?

Today some claim that Jesus is just an idea, rather than a real historical figure, but there is a good deal of written evidence for his existence 2,000 years ago

… Robert Powell as Jesus of Nazareth in the 1977 TV miniseries.
Christ alive … Robert Powell as Jesus of Nazareth in 1977. Photograph: ITV/Rex

How confident can we be that Jesus Christ actually lived?

The historical evidence for Jesus of Nazareth is both long-established and widespread. Within a few decades of his supposed lifetime, he is mentioned by Jewish and Roman historians, as well as by dozens of Christian writings. Compare that with, for example, King Arthur, who supposedly lived around AD500. The major historical source for events of that time does not even mention Arthur, and he is first referred to 300 or 400 years after he is supposed to have lived. The evidence for Jesus is not limited to later folklore, as are accounts of Arthur.

What do Christian writings tell us?

The value of this evidence is that it is both early and detailed. The first Christian writings to talk about Jesus are the epistles of St Paul, and scholars agree that the earliest of these letters were written within 25 years of Jesus’s death at the very latest, while the detailed biographical accounts of Jesus in the New Testament gospels date from around 40 years after he died. These all appeared within the lifetimes of numerous eyewitnesses, and provide descriptions that comport with the culture and geography of first-century Palestine. It is also difficult to imagine why Christian writers would invent such a thoroughly Jewish saviour figure in a time and place – under the aegis of the Roman empire – where there was strong suspicion of Judaism.

Who Is Jesus??

Men have debated, discussed, and even denied who Jesus is. But who is this Jesus, anyway? Was He just a good man? Was He simply a charismatic and influential religious teacher? Was He God as He claimed and His followers believed Him to be? Was He a fraud and cosmic trickster? Or is He truly whom He claimed to be, the Only Savior of the world? 

Then comes someone's idea of the Ecumenical Movement. It is a clarion call in the religious world for all religions to come together for the purpose of fostering world peace. Recognizing the dire and profound conflicts, rifts, and mistrust existing among the several faith factions, the promoters of this coming-together movement feel that greater peace can be achieved if all religions become united. Essentially, their argument is that if each faith group, by casting aside their peculiar points of doctrines, can indeed unite and usher in a season of universal peace. They conclude that, at the very core of spirituality, they all worship the same God and would thus find salvation through whomever each group recognizes as its god.
 
But, this line of thinking places the sincere Christian in a real predicament; for Jesus Christ, the Founder of their religion, declared quite emphatically, "I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one cometh unto the Father but by Me (John 14:6).  Find out here who Jesus truly is.

Could tobacco hold the key to beating cancer?

Once again, we must go to foreign newspapers to find the truth about tobacco.....

 The tobacco plant’s natural defence mechanisms could be harnessed to kill cancer cells in the human body.   Scientists have identified a molecule in the flower of the plant that usually fights off fungi and bacteria - and were stunned to find it also has the ability to identify and destroy cancer.   Called NaD1, it works by forming a pincer-like structure that grips onto lipids present in the membrane of cancer cells and rips themopen, causing the cell to expel its contents and explode.

The flower of the Nicotiana planet, in which researchers have identified a molecule that usually fights off fungi and bacteria also has the ability to identify and destroy cancer 

HOW IT WORKS

Called NaD1, the moecule works by forming a pincer-like structure that grips onto lipids present in the membrane of cancer cells.    The structure then effectively rips them open, causing the cell to expel its contents and explode, rendering them unable to cause damage.

‘There is some irony in the fact that a powerful defence mechanism against cancer is found in the flower of a species of ornamental tobacco plant, but this is a welcome discovery, whatever the origin,’ Dr Mark Hulett of the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science in Melbourne said.

‘The next step is to undertake pre-clinical studies to determine what role NaD1 might be able to play in treating cancer.'

The preclinical work is being conducted by the Melbourne biotechnology company Hexima.

'So far the preliminary trials have looked promising,' said Dr Hulett.

Trump announces new military 'Space Force'

Trump says he is directing the Pentagon to create a 'Space Force'

President Donald Trump pledged to revive the US space program, pledging to revive the country's flagging efforts, return to the moon and eventually send a manned mission that would reach Mars. The president framed space as a national security issue, saying he does not want 'China and Russia and other countries leading us'. Trump had previously suggested the possibility of creating a space unit that would include portions equivalent to parts of the Air Force, Army and Navy. But his directive will task the Defense Department to begin the process of establishing the Space Force as the sixth branch of the US armed forces.


Isaiah 58 The Mission of The Plain Truth

Theplaintruth900Although we are not a religious site, or a church, but rather a news site, we do have a mission statement. What we do is what no other news organization does- believe in the God, and understand that God control every aspect of the news. Just like all of us today understand the role of viruses and bacteria as the cause of many diseases, it is our mission to show our readers that everything that happens in the news, or has happened in the past has a spiritual aspect dimension. Now that may be a spiritual aspect from God, or for that matter the Devil; But there is an unseen world that controls our universe. To deny that unseen world, would be to deny that jumping of a skyscraper broke the physical law of science and ultimately was the reason that someone who jumped died. Just because modern news has taken God out of the news, does not make the existence of God and God's part in the news any less important. Our job is to show our readers the God side of the news (or in many cases, the Devil's unseen role). Are you aware that according to God's Word the Devil is in charge of this world today, and controls the airwaves? Read for yourself: Ephesians 2:2 and 2 Corinthians 4:4.

What Are ‘Fire Rainbows’? Colorful Sight Seen In Clouds Over New England

BOSTON (CBS) – There was an unusual sight in the blue skies over New England this week – an apparent rainbow in the clouds.

The National Weather Service noted the presence of what some call “fire rainbows,” which are technically circumhorizontal arcs.

“It looks like a rainbow, but it’s actually a halo,” WBZ-TV’s Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher explains. “Essentially you have ice crystals in these high clouds that create these large halos. This particularly variety only happens when the sun is very high in the sky, so around mid-day and mostly in the warm season here in New England.”

A woman in New Hampshire captured a particularly vivid fire rainbow at Rye Beach on Wednesday.

'12th Imam,' Key Facet Of Islamic Prophecy, Fuels Middle East Turmoil

The King of the South, talked about in Daniel chapter 11, is a leader of a United States of Islam, and may either claim to be the 12th Iman, or will designate one to his liking.  This is FUTURE HISTORY, and will happen!

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comAmong the nearly 68 million people in Iran, the vast majority are Muslim who place their hope not in modern-day politics or rulers but in a person who walked the earth centuries ago and is promised to return.

“Both Islam and Christianity have a very well-defined eschatology, or period of the last days; both of them cannot be correct …,” said William Wagner, senior professor at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and author of the book, “How Islam Plans to Change the World.”

A majority of Shiite Muslims traditionally believe that the “12th Imam” (Islamic religious leader), born in 868 A.D., was placed by God into hiding (known as occultation) until the day of judgment. Southern Baptist author and evangelist Anis Shorrosh explained that many Shiites also refer to the 12th Imam as the Mahdi, an Arabic word that generally references a messiah, or a guide.

“This man will come to show them the way, because the prayer of every Muslim five times a day … ends with ‘Show us the right path, not the path of those who have incurred your anger or those who are lost, but those upon whom grace has come,’” Shorrosh said.

Though most strains of Islam have a belief in the Mahdi, Shiites traditionally believe he is Mohammed ibn Hasan, the 12th in the line of imams who were descendents of the prophet Mohammed. Though they do not know when the Mahdi will return, they believe he will come to end the misery of his people. Some strains of Islam even hold a belief that Jesus will be the Mahdi who will return and proclaim Islam as the true religion.

“Satan always tries to duplicate everything that God does,” Wagner said, “and I believe he has created his own eschatology that is somewhat similar to that of Christianity, but false enough to where it is apparent that it is not the truth.”

Ray Tallman, director of the school of intercultural studies at Golden Gate Seminary, noted that the major eschatological question for Shiite Muslims is when the Mahdi’s return will take place -– and many hold the belief that the time is near. The increasing clash with Israel and that with Christianity are two indications to Shiites that the Mahdi’s return could be near, said Tallman, who spent seven years as the international director for Arab World Ministries.

“All of that is sort of a sign of the times that now it has come to this, and that what is actually being done now out of hate has an eschatological sign of promise to it,” Tallman said of the Shiite view.

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been cited by various news sources as not only believing in the eventual return of the Mahdi, but that the return is near and that it is the responsibility of the Iranian government to prepare the country for his return.

Trump and the invasion of the west

"It is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart," says former first lady Laura Bush of the Trump administration policy of "zero tolerance," under which the children of illegal migrants are being detained apart from their parents.

"Disgraceful," adds Dr. Franklin Graham.

"We need to be . . . a country that governs with a heart," says first lady Melania Trump. "No one likes this policy," says White House aide Kellyanne Conway, even "the president wants this to end."

And so it shall—given the universal denunciations and photos of sobbing children being pulled from parents. Yet striking down the policy will leave America's immigration crisis still unresolved.

Consider. Since 2016, some 110,000 children have entered the U.S. illegally and been released, along with 200,000 Central American families caught sneaking across the border.  MORE

the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”

Newest Mueller Prosecutor Donated To Hillary Clinton

The latest addition to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of prosecutors contributed to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, according to federal campaign records.

Uzo Asonye, an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, is joining Mueller’s stable of prosecutors to work as local counsel on the case against Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman who has been indicted on money laundering and bank fraud charges.

Asonye worked at the firm O’Melveny & Myers before joining the U.S. attorney’s office in 2010. Asonye donated $900 to Clinton’s presidential campaign from January to April 2008, according to Federal Election Commission records. He has not donated to any other national political campaigns since then.

Asonye is just the latest Democrat to join Mueller’s team.

WHAT BIBLE SAYS ABOUT ARABIAN DESERT

WASHINGTON – Science has lots of ideas about the ancient catastrophic climate change that almost all agree occurred to create the world’s biggest desert in Arabia.
image from www.wnd.com

There are as many theories about what happened as when it happened.

What’s not very well-known even by Bible scholars is what the Bible says – or at least suggests.

The Book of Isaiah chapter 21:13 references “the forest of Arabia shall ye tarry all night, even in the ways of Dedanites.” The Hebrew word behind the English “forest” is ya’ar, which generally means forest. Most every older Bible translation renders it “forest,” while some modern ones translate it to “desert” or “thicket” – probably because they can’t imagine there was once a forest in Arabia.

Yet, many scientists, including secular ones, are not only acknowledging that as a fact, some are suggesting it could have been so only a few thousand years ago.

That raises the question as to whether it was indeed a forest in the renowned Isaiah’s time. Even more interesting is the fact that another biblical prophet, Jeremiah, who lived about 100 years after Isaiah, has this to say in Jeremiah 3:2-3: “Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness. Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.”

In other words, Jeremiah, quoting what God spoke to him, wrote that the Arabian forest of Isaiah’s time became a desert because of a Divine judgment. And it’s not the only well-known, sprawling desert in the world that was previously forested.

Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from WND.com, America’s independent news network.

Jeremiah suggests rainfall in Arabia stopped in his time or before. Could the destruction of an Arabian forest have occurred only 2,700 years ago? Is this biblical evidence of just such a possibility?

One recent scientific paper suggests there could have been an Arabian forest instead of desert between 10,000 and 12,000 years ago.

It sparked popular news stories with 2015 headlines like this by the BBC: “Arabia was once a lush paradise of grass and woodlands.”

Other scientists are jumping in to support this conclusion, including the idea that there were lakes and rivers in Arabia thousands of years ago.

Turkey's President Erdogan warns the world is heading towards 'a war between the cross and the crescent'

By Bob Barney

       Turkey's dictator is not far off, as he predicts yet another crusade war!  The Bible long ago, in the Book of Daniel, predicted a 2,000 year war between what he called the King of the North (which will be modern Europe, in the end times) and the King of the South, an Arab league of United Nations. 

1
In the Book of Daniel, we are allowed by God to see a vision of the end-time world, just before the return of Jesus.  What Daniel is told from Heaven is that two SUPER POWERS would be enemies during the last days, fighting each other until Christ's return. A THIRD SUPER POWER would enter this World War, just a fraction of time before Armageddon. That third super power is clearly China.(Rev 9:16).

The two great super powers are called: The King of the North (Europe) and The King of the South (a great United States of Muslim nations- from Iran-North Africa.).  You can read the entire battle in Daniel11: (my notes in blue)

3"Then a mighty king will rise to power who will rule a vast kingdom and accomplish everything he sets out to do. (this is Alexander the Great)
4 But at the height of his power, his kingdom will be broken apart and divided into four parts. It will not be ruled by the king's descendants, nor will the kingdom hold the authority it once had. For his empire will be uprooted and given to others. 
5v"The king of the south (United Muslim Nation) will increase in power, but one of this king's own officials will become more powerful than he and will rule his kingdom with great strength. 
6"Some years later, an alliance will be formed between the king of the north (Europe and the revived Holy Roman Empire) and the king of the south (United Muslim Nation) . The daughter of the king of the south will be given in marriage to the king of the north to secure the alliance, but she will lose her influence over him, and so will her father. She will be given up along with her supporters. 
7 But when one of her relatives becomes king of the south (United Muslim Nation), he will raise an army and enter the fortress of the king of the north and defeat him. The Invasion of Europe by Muslims
8 When he returns again to Egypt, he will carry back their idols with him, along with priceless gold and silver dishes. For some years afterward he will leave the king of the north alone. 
9 "Later the king of the north (THE CRUSADES) will invade the realm of the king of the south but will soon return to his own land. 
10 However, the sons of the king of the north will assemble a mighty army that will advance like a flood and carry the battle as far as the enemy's fortress. THE CRUSADES
11 Then the king of the south, in great anger, will rally against the vast forces assembled by the king of the north and will defeat them.  (The Muslim leader-Saladin- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saladin)
12 After the enemy army is swept away, the king of the south will be filled with pride and will have many thousands of his enemies killed. But his success will be short lived. 
13 "A few years later, the king of the north will return with a fully equipped army far greater than the one he lost. 
14 At that time there will be a general uprising against the king of the south. Lawless ones among your own people will join them in order to fulfill the vision, but they will not succeed.(World War 1 and 2 and the formation of the JEWISH STATE in Palestine)
15  Then the king of the north (MAYBE HITLER???) will come and lay siege to a fortified city and capture it. The best troops of the south will not be able to stand in the face of the onslaught. 
16 "The king of the north will march onward unopposed; none will be able to stop him. He will pause in the glorious land of Israel, intent on destroying it. (HITLER??? or beyond today)
17 He will make plans to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will form an alliance with the king of the south. He will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom from within, but his plan will fail. (Hitler allied himself with the Muslim world)
18 "After this, he will turn his attention to the coastal cities and conquer many. But a commander from another land will put an end to his insolence and will cause him to retreat in shame. (England, Denmark, Holland, France and the USA)
19 He will take refuge in his own fortresses but will stumble and fall, and he will be seen no more. (1945- refuge = a bunker????)
20 "His successor will be remembered as the king who sent a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor, but after a very brief reign, he will die, though neither in battle nor open conflict.  (A NEW HITLER YET TO BE FORMED!!!!)
21 "The next to come to power will be a despicable man who is not directly in line for royal succession. But he will slip in when least expected and take over the kingdom by flattery and intrigue. 
22 Before him great armies will be swept away, including a covenant prince. (The King of England!)
23 By making deceitful promises, he will make various alliances. With a mere handful of followers, he will become strong. (An Antichrist - the End Timed King of the North- The Beast of Revelation)
24 Without warning he will enter the richest areas of the land and do something that none of his predecessors ever did -- distribute among his followers the plunder and wealth of the rich. He will plot the overthrow of strongholds, but this will last for only a short while. (The formation of the WORLD GOVERNMENT!!! Only China and the Muslim world will excluded) 
25 "Then he will stir up his courage and raise a great army against the king of the south (The Muslim Unified Nation). The king of the south will go to battle with a mighty army, but to no avail, for plots against him will succeed. 
26 Those of his own household will bring his downfall. His army will be swept away, and many will be killed. 
27 Seeking nothing but each other's harm, these kings will plot against each other at the conference table, attempting to deceive each other. But it will make no difference, for an end will still come at the appointed time. 
28 "The king of the north will then return home with great riches. On the way he will set himself against the people of the holy covenant, doing much damage before continuing his journey. (He will war against Christians! THE TRIBULATION BEGINS!- and the reign of the TWO WITNESSES of Revelation (Rev 11))
29 "Then at the appointed time (THE END TIME) he will once again invade the south, but this time the result will be different. 
30 For warships from western coastlands (THE USA???) will scare him off, and he will withdraw and return home. But he will vent his anger against the people of the holy covenant and reward those who forsake the covenant. 
31 His army will take over the Temple fortress, polluting the sanctuary, putting a stop to the daily sacrifices, and setting up the sacrilegious object that causes desecration. (The third Temple is HERE at this time)
32 He will flatter those who have violated the covenant and win them over to his side. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him. 
33 "Those who are wise will give instruction to many. But for a time many of these teachers will die by fire and sword, or they will be jailed and robbed. 
34 While all these persecutions are going on, a little help will arrive, though many who join them will not be sincere. (FALSE CHRISTIANS!)
35 And some who are wise will fall victim to persecution. In this way, they will be refined and cleansed and made pure until the time of the end, for the appointed time is still to come. 
36 "The king (of the NORTH) will do as he pleases, exalting himself and claiming to be greater than every god there is, even blaspheming the God of gods. He will succeed -- until the time of wrath is completed. For what has been determined will surely take place. 
37 He will have no regard for the gods of his ancestors, or for the god beloved of women, or for any other god, for he will boast that he is greater than them all. (He will be a SOCIALIST-Nazi-Communist)
38 Instead of these, he will worship the god of fortresses -- a god his ancestors never knew -- and lavish on him gold, silver, precious stones, and costly gifts. (Socialism-Communism)

Today, we are witnessing today is the re-birth of both the King of the North and the King of the South, the rise of China and the decline of the United States of America.  We are at the edge of the time of the end. We could have many more years ahead of us yet, as there is no Temple and other signs that must occur, but we would be blind not to see that the stage is being set for the coming Kingdom of God!

So reading today that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hits back at Austria on Saturday after the country moved to expel several imams accused of spreading radical Islam, comes as no surprise.  The President warned of a global war between Christians and Muslims as he blasted Austria's move to close mosques and expel Turkish-funded imams--- another (and last) crusade.


Germany’s Far Right Rises Again

Forward by Bob Barney:   A German led revised Holy Roman Empire is going to emerge again.  God tells us so in the Bible, in the books of Daniel, Isiah, Ezekiel, Revelation and many more prophecies. Don't let this anti-Trump article confuse you. Nationalism to protect American workers, will not lead to a fascist America, as the anti-trumpets want you to believe, HOWEVER, the same nationalistic fever is going to explode in Europe, and in Europe, that's going to be a disaster to the world.  Russia, even China are not our future enemy- it will be a reunified Holy Roman Empire, under a Hitler-like beast...

MUNICH—Five days after Donald Trump became the next president of the United States, the South Munich chapter of Germany’s far-right party, Alternative for Deutschland, held its first meeting since the U.S. election. In a traditional Bavarian tavern on a quiet residential street, 50-some party members and supporters drank beer and celebrated the victory that they felt was, in many ways, their own.

The theme of the meeting was supposed to be the local elections in May, when the AfD is expected to pick up seats in several of Germany’s state parliaments. (The party currently holds seats in 10 of Germany’s 16 state parliaments, up from five one year ago.) But instead of local elections, talk that night centered almost exclusively on Donald Trump.

Dirk Driesang, a member of AfD’s federal board, stood to address the packed restaurant, where party placards reading “AfD Loves Deutschland” adorned every table. He began with Trump’s roots in Germany. The president-elect’s grandfather Friedrich was born and raised in Kallstadt, a village in the Southwest. Friedrich eventually was deported, Driesang smiled as he told the crowd, for evading his mandatory military service. But that was fine because his grandson had gone on to do in the U.S. what the AfD hopes to do in Germany.

“America First is coming to Deutschland,” boomed Driesang, his adaptation of Trump’s campaign slogan giving way to resounding applause.   Read More


Drivers go 'James Bond' to avoid paying tolls

image from i.ytimg.comIt’s almost like something you’d see in a James Bond spy movie, but it’s a reality on American roadways today.  Drivers are using devices, both high-tech and low-tech, to obscure or completely cover their license plates to avoid paying tolls. Sammy and Mayte Salinas were driving on the Dolphin Expressway recently in South Florida when they noticed a maroon Chrysler Pacifica with the Florida tag DSB5U in front of them using a specially devised cover that moves up and down over the plate.

“At the next toll by plate cameras, they took out their own camera and, sure enough, recorded as a black cover came down over the plate of the car ahead,” reported CBS4 in Miami. “After getting clear of the toll by plate cameras, the driver activated a device, lifting the black cover off the license plate.”

Air accident expert reveals the parts on a plane that can break without causing it to crash-land

Air accident expert reveals the parts on a plane that can break without causing it to

It’s endlessly repeated – air travel is one of the safest modes of travel. And this article will show you just why using the expert knowledge of safety and accident investigation lecturer Dr Simon Place, from Cranfield University. Here he explains which bits an airliner can lose, or suffer damage to, without it falling from the sky using, in some instances, real-world examples of extraordinary landings by planes that have lost key parts, including the wheels, tail fin and even the wing… Pictured: An F-15 that landed safely with just one wing (inset), a Lot airliner that landed without landing gear (main), a USAF Boeing B-52H Stratofortress that landed safely without a fin (top right) and a Qantas A380 that landed safely after one of its engines suffered an uncontained rotor failure (bottom right).
