Verse of the Day -- Isaiah 66:8Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation
be brought forth all at once? . . .THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
prophesied, Israel became a modern-day nation in one day.
MINI BIBLE STUDY FOR THE DAY
The likelihood of a people being defeated, scattered over the earth and regathering some 2000 years later in their
homeland as a pure race was so preposterous that many Bible scholars through the years scoffed at the idea. Yet the dry bones
analogy in Ezekiel 37 was there for all to read for 2500 years. And on May 14, 1948, the United Nations granted
Israel full nation status.
The Bible says it was God who brought them back to their homeland.
. . . I will bring you into the land of Israel. -Ezekiel
. . . I will place you on your own land. -Ezekiel 37:14
God made promises to Israel that are yet to be fulfilled. For instance:
. . . I will give (the land of Israel) to you and to your descendants forever. -Genesis
Best of all, God promises a blessing to those who bless Israel.
And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who
curses you I will curse. -Genesis 12:3
There is no doubt that God's
blessing on America is due, at least in part, to our backing and protection of Israel. Woe to us if we ever leave Israel high
QUESTION FOR THE DAY
Believers be able to watch the Antichrist's rise to power prior to Rapture? I am watching (a man) on TV and he seems like
he could fit the bill.
Antichrist will not be revealed until after the removal of the Holy Spirit from the earth (Rapture). So Believers will not
know, for sure, who he will be. If you do see a great world leader confirm a seven-year peace treaty with Israel, you have
bigger problems . . . you missed the Rapture!
you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work;
only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way (Rapture). -2 Thessalonians
So it is unlikely that Believers can tell with any certainty who might be the world
leader who eventually becomes the false Christ/Antichrist. But we do know his characteristics.
Bible says the Antichrist:
There are many more biblical
characteristics this man will fulfill in the tribulation. But remember, we are not to look for a man ("Then
if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him. -Matthew 24:23)
but to keep our eyes looking up for Jesus' return ("They also said, 'Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking
into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him
go into heaven.'" -Acts 1:11).
- Will be a deceiver full of intrigue who comes
out of nowhere (Daniel 11:21, 23).
- Will be a big talker and
has a mouth uttering great boasts (Daniel 7:8, Revelation 13:5).
- Will rise from obscurity and exalt himself (2 Thessalonians 2:4, Daniel 7:8).
- Will be worshiped by many (Revelation 13:4, 8).
in as a man of peace (Daniel 9:27).
- Will be a great military
leader (Revelation 13:4, Daniel 11:39).
- Will show no regard
for the religion of his ancestors (Daniel 11:37).
the Antichrist is a homosexual, or at least asexual (Daniel 11:37).
