THE EASTERN GATE IN OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM
About a month ago, the Lord placed it upon my heart to do this drawing. It was not easy for me because I never worked with ink before. When I finished it, I also added a touch of color. This drawing speaks of Jesus’ IMMINENT return through the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem, as prophesied in the book of Ezekiel chapter 44!
About 600 B.C. the Lord God showed the prophet Ezekiel that the Eastern Gate was shut. Soon it will be re-opened for Jesus to enter in and God will establish the Millennial Kingdom of 1,000 years of righteousness, peace, and joy in the world.
WATCH this outstanding video that describes the coming momentous event:
Listen to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech and reception as he spoke before the U.S. Congress on Israel’s security and survival as a nation.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke before the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, and below you can find a round-up of reactions.
Here’s The Daily Signal summarizing why Netanyahi opposes the deal:
Netanyahu made the case before Congress that the White House’s efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran have about as much in common with the Camp David Accords as an SNL skit has with a State of the Union Address. The administration’s proposal is anything but a realistic plan for peace.
A real peace plan would demonstrate that all sides were committed to not adding more nuclear weapons powers to the Middle East. The deal as it stands does the opposite—it preserves the nuclear option for Iran—and as result will prompt other regional powers to hedge their bets and prepare to go nuclear as well rather than live in Tehran’s nuclear shadow.
The proposed multi-year moratorium doesn’t end concerns that Iran…

“PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM: THEY SHALL PROSPER THAT LOVE THEE.” PSALM 122:6
“BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD; AND THE PEOPLE WHOM HE HE HATH CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN INHERITANCE.” PSALM 33:12
What is puzzling is how anybody could find fault with Israel’s concern about a neighboring country’s desire to exterminate their people. Who with a straight face could side with Iran? Unfortunately there are many, thus a needed visit to the U.S. by a man with a steely resolve, similar to the mettle of Golda Meir, to sound the warning bell of an impending crisis.
Israel’s prime minister, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, appeared before a joint session of Congress on March 3, 2015, and pretty much pleaded with the United States to recognize the seriousness of Iran’s hopes to finish what Queen Esther prevented: the eradication of the Jewish people.
That’s right, the true Israeli statesman invoked the history of the Persians to prove that some things never change. For those who may not know, Esther’s (Hadassah) cousin Mordecai, of the tribe of Benjamin by the way, sent this word to Esther when…

‘Understanding the Times 2013’ conference lineup announced
One of the jokes from last year’s Understanding the Times conference in a Minneapolis suburb was that the rapture is the true example of separation of church and state.
For those with less training in end-times studies, the rapture is the event when the faithful of the church meet God in heaven, and as for the “state” part, well, you get the idea.
Now the lineup of speakers has been announced for the 2013 conference, scheduled at Grace Church in Eden Prairie, Minn., just outside of Minneapolis, Saturday, Oct. 5.
Mark Hitchcock, the pastor of Faith Bible Church in Edmond, Okla., will be returning. He’s the person many in secular media tap when they seek to connect secular events with Bible prophecy, as he’s authored 25 books on end-time issues.
It was Hitchcock during the 2012 conference who said that sometimes God’s…

Can a Palestinian State co-exist with the Jewish State side by side? This writer says ‘A Palestinian State Won’t Bring Peace’.
A Palestinian boy throws a stone at Israel’s security fence
JNS.org – We all want the Arab war against Israel to be finally resolved. But is establishing a Palestinian state the answer? Not when the Palestinians’ goal is Israel’s destruction, as opposed to a Palestinian state living in peace with Israel.
Every opportunity the Palestinians had to establish a state was rejected because it meant accepting Israel. The offers they rejected included: a 1937 Peel Commission proposal of a state on 95 percent of territory what is today all of Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza; in 1947 a division of the land into Jewish and Arab states (U.N. Resolution 181); in 2000 the offer of 97 percent of the West Bank, all of Gaza, and eastern Jerusalem made by U.S. President Bill Clinton and endorsed by Prime Minister Ehud Barak; and in 2008 an offer of 98…
