As we look back, we see the fruits through the partners and prayer warriors all over the world that God has brought us. We have had many outreaches in the streets, in the malls, and in the houses. We had a year of many salvations, healings, many baptized / immersed, contacts and followup meetings with new believers in Messiah Yeshua.

Love for the World - By Scott Huckaby -http://www.raptureready.com/soap2/huckaby2.html
It continues to amaze me that not all who profess to follow Jesus Christ are excited about His soon return. The top reasons I have found for my fellow Christians being cold toward Bible prophecy can be summarized as love for the world.
This attitude appears to especially be a problem for the church in America because of our prosperity. But this problem is not just limited to the United States; it is also an issue in Europe and generally worldwide wherever Western civilization is embraced.
America's prosperity has lured us into idolatry. Collectively, we no longer believe we have been blessed by God to serve His purpose; instead, the conventional wisdom is that we have reached our comfortable position in life through strictly human achievement.
There is a general attitude today that we have gotten this far without God, so then there is no problem we can't fix given enough time, funding, and focused human will. This attitude is much the same as it was at the tower of Babel.
"Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves" (Genesis 11:4).
Babylon is famous for collective human achievement attempting to usurp the role of God.
Now you'd think we wouldn't have an idolatry problem in the Body of Christ, but the Idol of human prosperity has a big foothold in the American church. Jesus rebuked the Church of Laodicea for their being lukewarm toward Him and thinking their worldly wealth equated to spiritual wealth (Revelation 3:14-22).
Our prosperity has led American Christians to no longer be on fire for Jesus because we don't depend on Him for our daily needs. We may live in the final Laodicean phase of the Church Age but this doesn't mean we have to succumb to being Laodicean believers ourselves.
Loving the world is a characteristic of not being a child of God.
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him" (1 John 2:15).
In context, the world, here refers to the system created by society to manage the world. The world system people have collectively created is one that appeals to our natural selfish human nature. If we allow our selfish human nature to be the guide for our lives, we will find ourselves on a path away from God.
Our selfish human nature seeks the pleasures of this world, that which is attractive, and that which makes us feel good about ourselves.
"For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world" (1 John 2:16).
The three basic sins mentioned in 1 John 2:16 represent all the things that lead us from God. These appeals of the world were the very ones Satan leveraged to tempt Eve in the Garden of Eden and Jesus during His 40-day fast (Genesis 3:6 and Matthew 4:1-11). Society's godless world system is driven by seeking the pleasurable, the attractive, and whatever makes us feel good.
God is the Creator of pleasure, attractiveness and all things good. But it is sin to seek these blessings through strictly human efforts while not regarding them as gifts from God to be enjoyed within His constraints and in His timing.
Society's humanist world loving mindset has crept into the Church today causing many to be lukewarm toward Christ. Many in the Church now take a liberal view of Scripture, no longer seeing the Bible as the inerrant, inspired Word of God but just the story of mankind's search for God. Thus there is less desire to spend time personally studying God's Word.
Why waste time reading the Bible if it is just words of men that are subject to interpretation? Why bother to personally study the Bible if it has to be interpreted for you by scholarly theologians to tell us what God really meant by what He said? And why take any of this too seriously since we can't really know if Bible interpreters are just making things up?
If the Bible is not the inspired Word of God then people are free to pick and choose whatever doctrines of men they like. And these dogmas change with the mores of society, causing people to be carried about with every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14).
The only way to avoid being blown about by society's changing winds of doctrine is to be well-grounded in God's Word. And it is not possible to be well-grounded in God's Word unless you have a correct view of the Bible as being inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16).
Another way followers of Christ have allowed love for the world to creep into the Church is to embrace the world's concept of evolution which attempts to explain how the creation could come to be without a Creator. Darwinian evolution is only a theory with no proof but the world has elevated it to the level of scientific truth.
If you don't embrace Darwinian evolution as absolute "settled" truth you are considered by society to be an unscientific hayseed. Nobody wants to be rejected by their peers so this has given rise to followers of Christ figuring out how to fit evolution into Christian theology.
The idea that God used an evolutionary process to bring about the creation is called Theistic Evolution and to believe it requires you to take a pretty liberal view of Scripture. And it joins with the world in rejecting all the scientific evidence that supports the literal Genesis account of creation.
Theistic Evolution can be considered to be within the pale of orthodoxy because it technically has nothing to do with a person's salvation. But theistic evolution does represent a gross compromise with the world that has contributed to the lukewarm attitude toward Christ that characterizes this Laodicean Age.
The problem with being lukewarm toward Christ is that one has to wonder if such individuals are truly children of God or if they are just deceiving themselves. Cultural Christians can talk the talk and walk the walk but don't necessarily have a personal relationship with the Savior. Jesus said He would spew lukewarm Christians out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16).
He also said that many who did great things even in His name would find themselves banished from heaven because, I never knew you (Matthew 7:21-23). If you are truly seeking a personal relationship with the Savior, it is hard to be lukewarm toward Him.
A key indicator of Christians loving the world is Amillennialism. The idea that the kingdom of God will only be a spiritual kingdom until the eternal state is ushered in requires the same spiritualized, liberal view of Scripture that is necessary to embrace Theistic Evolution. The two false doctrines go hand-in-hand and are characteristic of the lukewarm church of this Laodicean Age.
It is hard for Christians who take a liberal view of Scripture to get excited about the return of Jesus. If it took millions of years for Jesus to come the first time, it will probably be millions of years before He returns.
Scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming?'" (2 Peter 3:3-4).
We are told in 1 John 2:17 why we shouldn't love the world system men are building; this world along with even the passion for it-is passing away. Despite the prevailing humanist optimism, people inherently know there is something very broken with this world. No matter what we do, we still have poverty, despair and war in this world.
While most still think we can fix these problems through even more collective effort, we have been trying this and things are getting worse rather than better. Those who put their hope in more and more powerful human governments will have their own crisis of faith because the Bible says these efforts will fail.
We can already see the stage being set for a spectacular failure of the collective human effort. For example, we have been financing our prosperity by immorally building up debt. National and personal debt is a problem worldwide that has reached monumental proportions. Our collective conscience telling us that it is wrong to live beyond our means has been seared.
Debt always leads to bondage (Proverbs 22:7). And there will be consequences whether it is individual or national debt. It is increasingly obvious that there is an economic crash coming that will be so bad the world will demand a global government to fix it.
The only fix true for what ails this world is Jesus Christ; He will make a difference collectively to the world when He returns to establish His millennial kingdom. But He makes a difference to individuals in the here and now when we allow Him to be in our life as Savior and Lord.
Pursuing that relationship enables us to overcome the sin of this Laodicean Age to be resurrected as part of the Bride of Christ when He comes for us prior to the Tribulation that will prepare the world for the millennial kingdom.
The good news is that, he who does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:17). The will of God is to trust in Jesus Christ for your salvation (John 6:40). Don't allow yourself to be distracted by allures of creation that would cause you to miss out on a personal relationship with the Creator.
"KING OF THE NORTH" TURKEY AND ISRAEL CLOSE TO "A PEACE TREATY"? DECEPTION ABOUNDS FRIENDS, AND THIS COULD BE VERY SERIOUS INDEED!!!

Top Bible Prophecy Stories of 2015 - By Jan Markell -www.olivetreeviews.org
It's been an amazing year. If you follow any of the Bible prophecy sites, blogs, and media programs, you know they have been overwhelmed with stories that are foreshadowing the time the Bible calls the Time of Jacob's Trouble, also known as the Tribulation.
I know there are those who believe there are no signs for today. I was called on the carpet by a seminary professor --a Baptist, no less -- for heralding signs. He says there are no signs until the Tribulation. Nothing that is happening today is relevant. How tragic. What a disservice he is doing to his seminary students who will be ill equipped to deal with very dark headlines.
So after sifting through hundreds, in fact, thousands of headlines in the last year, I have come up with 18 stories that I feel most represent the herald of His coming:
1) Israel's worsening isolation. (Zechariah 12:3) The Left in America under Barack Obama abandoned her some years ago. With the defeat of Canada's Stephen Harper, Israel was left only with some evangelical Christians spread around the world. She has no superpower backing.
2) The "days of Noah" are back. (Matthew 24:37) Everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes. (Judges 17:6) Lawlessness is the order of the day. Evil is glorified. The White House was adorned with the colors of the homosexual rainbow and Hillary Clinton has a campaign ad with homosexuals engaged in debauchery as she celebrates their actions.
3) The disillusionment with today's politician is setting the stage for a "man with a plan" who will not be a politician but who will have the answer to all the world's problems. We don't know his name. We know his title is Antichrist. He may be the only one who can stabilize the ISIS crisis being planned for a naive Western world.
4) The rise of strong delusion. (II Thessalonians 2:10-12). Simply put, God sends a strong delusion to those who choose not to believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. Those who take delight in mocking and rejecting Him, He will condemn, confuse their thinking, and cause them to believe fables. And they do! Islam is good and peaceful; guns are evil; climate change is more dangerous than jihadists; Israel is the bad guy and the Palestinians are the new heroes in the church today; ISIS isn't Islam; Muslim refugees are peaceful and will help the Western world. This is an "Alice-in-Wonderland" world. Christians don't fit. The Mad Hatter rules.
5) The further decline of America. She is not in the Bible in the end-times. Russia and Iran are the primary players in the Mideast now. America's influence for good is vanishing under Barack Obama. America will blend into global government.
6) America is being given over to paganism. A few months ago the Hindu goddess Kali appeared on the Empire State Building in New York City. Twenty years ago this was unthinkable. It is now cool.
7) Israel is being prepared for the Antichrist. She is surrounded by enemies. She has Hezbollah, ISIS, Russia and Syria to the north and East and Hamas to the south in Gaza. Iran boasts daily that she will dump nukes on Israel. At some point she will cave to these threats and call on the Antichrist to make a peace treaty -- particularly in light of the loss of American support.
8) Gog is now on the move. If Gog is Russia, Vladimir Putin has re-built her from the days when Ronald Reagan reined her in. Russia is advancing in many places. All the Gog-Magog nations are aligning and are in the news: Iran, Russia, Turkey, Libya, and more. Prominent Bible-players are moving around as though they were on a chess board.
See Ezekiel 38-39.
9) Israel has been bombing the suburbs of Damascus taking out concealed weapons. The Bible foretells a time when Damascus will become a ruinous heap. (Isaiah 35:1)
10) Christians are mocked as never before and Jews are fleeing to Israel at a pace not seen since post WW2. (Matthew 10:22) Only Islam is glorified, honored, and protected. In the Iraq/Syria region, a Christian is slaughtered every 5 minutes, yet few show any concern. Christianity is being erased from the region of its birth. All of this intensified in 2015.
11) The technology giants want to suppress the truth and marginalize Christians. From YouTube, to Google, to Facebook, to Twitter, and more, the gospel message is censored and evil is glorified. They are preparing the way for "Mark of the Beast" technology. This was on overdrive in 2015. This ministry came under the gun and was censored more than once. Stories reveal that Windows 10 actually spies on emails, credit cards, and more.
12) There was a cry for a global religion from Pope Francis to the Parliament of World Religions in Utah in late 2015. If the world is ever to be one, religions also must be united. Pope Francis revealed himself to be an apocalyptic figure in 2015. We cannot "pin the tail of the False Prophet" on him quite yet, but even conservative Catholics are troubled by this Jesuit Pope. In fact, this Pope represents Marxism, environmentalism, the new world order, global government, sustainable development, the Jesuit agenda, unity of faiths, a global constitution, a global court, and a departure from Catholic traditions. He is surely a harbinger of a global religion.
13) Globalism went on overdrive thanks to Barack Obama, the United Nations, Pope Francis, and a consortium of worldwide Leftists. John Lennon, who "imagined" all of this decades ago, would be proud!
14) The push to make cash illegal intensified in 2015. The move to a cashless society won't happen overnight. Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps. All over the planet, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash for security reasons.
15) Israel's Temple Mount has been a focal point for turmoil this year. With stage-setting for fulfillment of Bible prophecy during this Church Age winding up, it should be of no surprise that there has been tension on Mount Moriah. That may be the most contested 35 acres on the planet.
16) This was the year Bible prophecy was mocked and attacked more than ever! Believers in our "blessed hope" were called "End-time Eddies and Esthers." While this has always existed, now more and more prominent teachers are telling us not to waste our time on doom and gloom.
17) Liberal, Godless Europe imploded. Leaders like Germany's Angela Merkel lost their minds, put their people at huge risk as terrorists took advantage of the "refugee" situation, and have made Europe a time bomb. The Antichrist will take advantage of this as well.
18) This was the year evangelicals began accepting the gay agenda and some asserted that Allah and Jehovah are the same. The voices from the religious Left encouraged this. The great end-time falling away has much of the church going over a cliff with results that cannot be rectified. Finding a solid church became a believer's biggest challenge in 2015.
Things are not falling apart -- they are falling into place. Can you hear the hoof beats of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in the distance?
I won't be silent about the signs of the times. If Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of His first coming, why would we not be expected to be aware of today's apocalyptic signs?
Wake up, look up, and rise up.

America: Barbarians Inside the Gate - By Paul McGuire -http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul276.htm
There is an all-out war being waged against America by enemies without, but more importantly by enemies within. The frontline of this war consists of the militant Islamic people and groups who already live among us and have become U.S. citizens and the large percentage of militant Muslims among growing migrant populations like the Syrian refugees. Make no mistake about it, the existence of large numbers of militant Islamic people who have already been allowed into our country and the large numbers currently migrating into our nation from places like Syria is not the result of the unforeseen consequences of conflicts in the Middle East. This migration and assimilation of militant Islam in the United States is part of a larger and intentional global plan.
Researchers say that only 13% of Syrian refugees will publicly admit to supporting ISIS. They key words are "publicly admit." The other problem with this statistic is that it does not reflect the percentage of Syrian refugees who support other terrorist groups like Al Qaeda. But if it was only 13% of Syrian refugees who support ISIS, that would still mean that of the first 10,000 Syrian refugees who enter the U.S. 1,300 will support ISIS! A 2007 poll revealed that 77% of all Syrians supported financing Islamic terrorists including Hamas and other terrorist groups. The primary reason the Syrians support Islamic terrorism is because they hate America. Given this data and other research with similar results, why do the U.S. and the heads of the EU nations demand that their people welcome Syrian migrants and migrants from other militant Islamic nations?
On every level the welcoming of Syrian refugees and other Muslims who hate America cannot be in our nation's best interest. But this is not about the best interest of America or American citizens. This is really about the best interest of powerful globalists who control both political parties and the mass media, with few exceptions. This is why, with an allegiance that would make George Orwell's "Big Brother" proud, the mass media pounds home the message that it is evil to consider a temporary moratorium against Muslims attempting to immigrate from Islamic terrorist sponsoring nations and that it is evil for America not to welcome in vast numbers of Syrian refugees. The celebrity talking heads of all the major news networks attack Donald Trump for merely raising the question, as does almost every Republican candidate. Paul Ryan, a globalist point man, along with the media and both the Republican and Democratic candidates, scream that a "religious test" applied to potential migrants from Muslim nations is wrong. The media pundits lecture us and tell us that it is a violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to give a religious test to people attempting to migrate into the U.S. What twisted "Alice in Wonderland" logic is that? The Constitution and the Bill of Rights only applies to U.S. citizens; it was never intended to apply to non-citizens or those attempting to become citizens. In addition, when one of the world's largest religions, Islam, consists of hundreds of millions of people who believe that the Koran, when correctly interpreted, calls for "the death of the infidel" and "jihad" a "religious test" is absolutely necessary and expedient.
Since the Paris terror attacks on November 13, 2015 the State Department has admitted 237 refugees into the United States. Out of the 237 refugees, 236 were of the Sunni Muslim faith and just one Syrian Christian was allowed in. It is difficult to believe that if Syrian refugees were being accepted into the U.S. on a purely fair basis without some kind of religious test that only one Syrian Christian has been allowed in among 237 refugees! According to CIA reports, Syrian Christians represent 10 percent of the population of Syria. Yet, only 0.4%, or one Christian was allowed in. One would responsibly have to ask the question, are Christians being profiled in order to keep them from coming into America?
In Germany, Syrian Muslims are terrorizing Syrian Christians. Clearly, these Syrian refugees are not peaceful seekers of legitimate sanctuary. The question is, why is all this happening?
As we document in our book, The Babylon Code, there exists an elite in our world who are currently rebuilding the one world government, one world economic system and one world religion of ancient Babylon... they have simply changed the name "Babylon" to "globalism." Powerful globalists in our world, such as Rothschild, Rockefeller, Kissinger, Brzezinski, Soros, etc. are manipulating the global financial system and geopolitics in order to create a new international order. Super-billionaire George Soros essentially said, in a report from Breitbart London, that he seeks to get rid of all European borders. Soros made this remark in response to an accusation made by the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, who said that Soros was deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis now engulfing Europe. "This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state," Orban said. "This Western mindset and this activist network are perhaps best represented by George Soros." Soros responded through Bloomberg Business by saying that his various foundations "help to uphold European values." Soros said of Orban, "His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle...our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle."
Soros' words reveal the crux of the matter...the elite globalists of our world are seeking to destroy national borders as well as the independent nation state. They want what happened in ancient Babylon, which we outline in The Babylon Code, a one world government, economic system and religion. Nimrod, who founded ancient Babylon, wanted this one world government, one world economic system and one world religion because it allowed him and a secretive elite to consolidate their power under a single authoritarian structure. This concept in its totality is known as "Mystery Babylon" and it is built on a hierarchal structure, which is Luciferian in nature. This is why on the back of the U.S. dollar we see the hierarchal Illuminati pyramid with the all-seeing eye of Lucifer and we read the words in Latin under the base of the pyramid, Novus Ordo Seclorum, or "New Order of the Ages," which means New World Order.
It is in the best interest of the elite globalists banking families who control much of the world's wealth to create a high-tech feudal state, where they live like kings and queens in castles and the masses toil as their serfs. It is interesting that these globalists literally live in and own multiple castles. In the movie Eyes Wide Shut, directed by Stanley Kubrick, one of the main scenes, depicting an occult orgy, was filmed in one of Rothschild's castles. Among George Soro's many residences is a mansion/castle outside of New York City.
The elite in Europe like Prince Bernard created the Bilderberg Group, which was behind the creation of the European Union, which was created through trade treaties. The same plan is at work in the United States, and that is to create a North American Union through the merger of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, along with South American nations. The Council on Foreign Relations document published in 2005, entitled "Building a North American Community," talks in detail about open borders and promoting migration from Mexico and South America into the United States through trade treaties. Presidential candidate Ted Cruz's wife, Heidi Cruz, is a former member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was very active in the CFR task force promoting the merger of Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
The TPA or Trade Promotion Authority will fast-track trade deals like the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership.) The Administration's Trade in Services Act (TISA) was supported by both the Democrats and Republicans, and the mass media were careful to ignore the fact that it totally alters current U.S. immigration laws. On page seven of this agreement it says "The period of processing applications [visa applications] may not exceed 30 days." Obviously, it would be impossible to properly vet people who are potential terrorists in only thirty days. The reality is that migration from nations like Syria and other militant Islamic nations is being allowed by the elite globalists because militant Islamic migrants are an effective tool in destroying the last traces of the sovereign and independent nation state. In addition, since Muslims organize to establish Sharia Law once they enter a nation, Sharia Law becomes a highly strategic mechanism for destroying Judeo-Christian culture and the values generic to independent nations like the United States. Militant Islamic migration is a battering ram being used by the globalists to destroy independent sovereign nations. This is necessary in order to establish their goal of a one world government ruled by the United Nations or some other international body.
What can we expect in the near future in America? There will be an on-going series of small and much larger scale terrorist attacks from militant Islamic cells operating in the U.S. The elite benefit from this because their operating plan is based on "Order Out of Chaos" or "manufactured crisis." The manufactured crisis or chaos creates a climate of fear generated by a controlled media, which is designed to make the American people cry to their government for protection. Although gun sales are currently sky rocketing, at a certain point a crisis will occur which will provide the excuse for the establishment of some kind of martial law. When martial law is enacted the guns will be taken away and society will be under total lockdown.
Freedom is neither desirable nor convenient for the globalist elite. On a planetary level they want a total lock down because they fear an uprising where they could potentially lose their wealth and power. Aldous Huxley defined the truly effective Scientific Dictatorship as one where men and women actually learn to love their slavery through mind control, but the elite will most likely not choose the truly effective means that Huxley proposed. Out of fear, they will resort to the brutal totalitarian measures used by Hitler, Mao, and Lenin.
What is interesting is that the very global system that the elite are constructing has been prophesied in the Bible. Even the use of microchip, Nano-chip, and biochip technology for buying, selling, and identification purposes was predicted over 2,000 years ago by the Apostle John, when he warned of the "mark of the beast." Despite that, the elite are now building the Revived Roman Empire predicted by the Prophet Daniel, yet despite so many other prophecies being fulfilled in our lifetime the elite and a large percentage of the mind-controlled masses cannot see the handwriting on the wall. Due to their incredible intellectual bias against the Bible actually being true, they are blinded by their pride from seeing its fulfillment before their very eyes.
Yes, the elite have allowed the Barbarians inside the gate for their purposes. But there is something far greater than the temporary plans of the elite. Despite the fact that the elites are living longer and healthier lives than the average person who does not have access to this superior health care and secret but advanced health treatments, the reality is that most of the elite are dying and they will not be able to preserve their biological lives long enough to upload their consciousness into a new body or clone. With all their wealth and power, they cannot in the end cheat death, and they know it. But neither can you or I. Therefore each of us is left with the only important question there is. What part or what role will you and I play in the challenging days ahead? Bible prophecy gives us a remarkable insight into this question. In Revelation Chapter 13, it talks about every person who is alive on Planet Earth being given a choice whether or not to receive this microchip implant called the mark of the beast, without which no one will be able to buy or sell, or participate in this coming global economic system. In order to receive the "mark of the beast" you will have to renounce your faith in Jesus Christ and pledge to worship the Antichrist as God. However, if that is your choice, you are going to have a problem; you will be able to buy and sell, but at a certain point you will have to face God. In the Book of Revelation it tells us that every single person who receives the "mark of the beast" will be sentenced for all eternity to a place of eternal torment, a cosmic prison called Hell.
The other choice you can make is you can choose to refuse the "mark of the beast" and follow God. That means you will have to choose to do the right thing. It may mean that you are beheaded for rejecting the "mark of the beast," but you will spend all eternity in Heaven with God, or God may spare you or lead you to a place of deliverance and refuge. These questions are not theological, mystical, or philosophical, but intensely practical and personal, as they will apply to your life in the years to come. Ultimately, it will mean that the time is coming when you will have to choose what side you're are on, God's, or some kind of satanic world system.
The evidence of whether or not you have chosen God or some kind of world system will not be based merely on your words; the evidence of what you have chosen to believe, which will affect your destiny in eternity, will be based on your actions!
Throughout the last 200 years alone, there have been millions of men and women who have lived under evil systems and yet they have claimed to be Christians. Do you really think that Nazi officers and soldiers who put people in concentration camps and killed them will be in Heaven? Do you really think the men and women who joined Chairman Mao and slaughtered the innocent are in Heaven? Do you really think all those who have said they were Christians and participated in murder, torture, stealing, killing, human sex trafficking, and other acts of evil are going to Heaven when they die? Yes, I know many talk about the fact that it is possible to repent and ask God for forgiveness. But true repentance is not the kind of thing you see being taught in most American churches today. There is always evidence of true repentance; there is always a corresponding outward change in behavior, and in every case of true repentance, a person has to willfully choose whose side he or she is on!
