"OBAMA'S SELF-PROFESSED CONFUSION ABOUT IS LAMIC TERROR" BY THE HIGHLY RESPECTED RAYMOND IBRAHIM.

Obama’s Self-Professed “Confusion” About Islamic Terror

http://www.raymondibrahim.com/other-matters/obamas-self-professed-confusion-about-islamic-terror/
During the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month, U.S. President Obama tried to shield Islam from criticism by depicting Christianity as equally violent and intolerant (via comments about crusades, inquisitions, and “high horses”). Much lesser known is that he also tried to shield Islam by invoking Christian virtues.
In many ways, his comments on “humility” might be the strangest of his entire speech—to the point that Obama himself got visibly confused by his own lack of coherency and even admitted it.
The transcript of the portion in question follows, interspersed with my comments and observations.
Said Obama:
"So this [Islamic State type violence] is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith. In today’s world, when hate groups have their own Twitter accounts and bigotry can fester in hidden places in cyberspace, it can be even harder to counteract such intolerance. But God compels us to try. And in this mission, I believe there are a few principles that can guide us, particularly those of us who profess to believe."
Two important points here to establish context for what follows: 1) Obama is referring to the atrocities being committed by the Islamic State—the beheadings, crucifixions, rape slavery, immolations—which he claims are common to all religions; 2) By invoking “God” and offering principles to “those of us who profess to believe”—a phrase he really stresses in the video—Obama is clearly addressing American Christians in particular.
Continues Obama:
"And, first, we should start with some basic humility. I believe that the starting point of faith is some doubt—not being so full of yourself and so confident that you are right and that God speaks only to us, and doesn’t speak to others, that God only cares about us and doesn’t care about others, that somehow we alone are in possession of the truth."
These are surely some strange remarks in the context of this speech. Obama calls on Americans in general Christians in particular to exercise some “humility” and “doubt”—and he treats the two as interchangeable in meaning, which they most certainly are not.... KEEP READING

CHRISTIAN FORGIVENESS TRUMPS ISIS' HATE AND EVIL!!

Christian Forgiveness Trumps ISIS' Hate and Evil: Coptic Christians Remember ISIS Victims as Martyrs, while Top Leader Forgives Terror Group

"We don't forgive the act because the act is heinous. But we do forgive the killers from the depths of our hearts."
(Egypt)—The 21 Egyptian Christians who were beheaded by ISIS militants in Libya will be honored as martyrs and saints by the Coptic Orthodox Church.(Photo: REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed/via Gospel Herald
According to Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., of Breitbart,Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II said that the names of the beheaded Christians will be inserted into the Coptic Synaxarium, also known as the church's official list of Martyrs. The procedure is similar to that of canonization in the Latin Church.

"An icon of the 21 martyrs, drawn by Tony Rezk, will be the official image to commemorate their supreme witness," Williams wrote.

Beshir Kamel, 32, said that he was proud of his brothers Bishoy and Samuel, who were two of the victims in the ISIS video, which was released on Feb. 15.

"ISIS gave us more than we asked when they didn't edit out the part where they declared their faith and called upon Jesus Christ. ISIS helped us strengthen our faith," Kamel said.

Kamel added that their martyrdom was "a badge of honor to Christianity." According to Williams, he even thanked the terror group for including "their Christian witness" in the videos before killing them in cold blood.

Williams reported that Kamel made the comments in an interview with SAT 7-ARABIC that went viral. The Coptic Christian was asked what he would do if he saw an ISIS militant, and he recalled his mother's response.

"My mother, an uneducated woman in her sixties, said she would ask [him] to enter her house and ask God to open his eyes because he was the reason her son entered the Kingdom of Heaven," Kamel said.

Jared Malsin of Time reported that 13 of the slaughtered men came from the Egyptian village of Al-Our, located 150 miles south of Cairo. Kamel told Maslin that he felt at peace, despite the fact that ISIS was causing chaos next door in Libya. (Photo: Mohamed El-Shahed/AFP/Getty Images)

"I felt peace knowing that they died as martyrs in the name of Christ," Kamel said. Of course, the first reaction was sadness at being separated from family."

Malsin reported that Christianity considers a person a martyr if they die because of their faith. Many of the recent martyrs have come from Coptic Christians in Egypt, who make up between 10 and 20 percent of Egypt's population.

"The ISIS victims are depicted next to the throne of Jesus on banners, which are suspended inside and outside the church in Al-Our," Malsin wrote.

As to why the Egyptian Christians went to Libya in the first place, Kamel told Malsin that his brothers were searching for work, which was unavailable in their village. Malsin reported that the average resident in his village earned between the equivalent of $3 and $4 a day.

"It's a hard life," Kamel said. "If you don't work all day, you don't eat at night."

Despite the harsh persecution exercised by ISIS against Coptic Christians and other minority groups, Carol Kuruvilla of the Huffington Post reported that Bishop Angaelos, the leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, indicated that he was willing to forgive the ISIS militants involved in the beheadings.

"We don't forgive the act because the act is heinous. But we do forgive the killers from the depths of our hearts," Angaelos said.

LONG BUT INTRIGUING ARTICLE BY RON REESE ON JOSEPH'S DREAM AND HOW THE 7 YEARS OF FAMINE LEAD ON TO THE TRIBULATION?

JOSEPH'S 7 GOOD YEARS--2008-2015 LEAD DIRECTLY TO THE
                 7 FAMINE YEARS OF TRIBULATION--2015-2022!!!!!!!

As I am writing this post, it has just been reported that ISIS just burned alive 45 more people.  This follows on the heals of 21 Egyptian Christians being decapitated by ISIS.  This is a reminder for what it about to take place, on a much bigger scale during the fast-approaching Tribulation hour.  Revelation 20:4 says, "...and I saw the souls of them who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and and for the Word of God."  These are the events that are leading to a large Middle East War, and to the Sudden Destruction of World War 3.  Everything is pointing towards the Day of Destiny, the Day of Sudden Destruction, the Day that starts the 7-Year Tribulation, and very possibly the Day of the Rapture of the Bride of Christ to be in the Fall of 2015.  This Day of Destiny COULD be any of the Fall Feast Days of 2015.  However, I am becoming more convinced every day that this Day of Destiny will be 11/11/15.  The abundance of evidence for 11/11/15 to be the day in which the Tribulation starts is compelling.  I will present this evidence to you in my next post.
The purpose of this post is to attempt to make some sense out of the 7-Year period of the Fall of 2008 to the Fall of 2015.  From the Fall of 2008 through 2012, I wrote extensively about this 7-year period being the Final 7 Years, which would culminate with the literal 2nd Coming of Christ on Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015.  The past couple of years I have written nothing because I had nothing to write about.  It became obvious that I was wrong.  I was in a state of disillusionment, not being able to discern how these 7 years of 2008 thru 2015 could NOT be the Final 7 Years of Tribulation.  The evidence seemed so compelling, and even overwhelming.  How could this be, oh Lord?
Finally, the answers began to come. But first, before I tell you what was, and is, this 7-Year time period of Fall of 2018 to Fall of 2015, I would like to apologize to all whom I helped lead to also put out the warnings for this 7-Year time period.  For all of you who feel you have suffered ridicule, scorn, mockery, or rejection, feel free to put the blame on me.  I accept responsibility, as I was one of the leading proponents of this multi-signed-filled period of 7 years.  I was, and still am, convinced that all of the signs that pointed directly to this 7-Year, 2520-day period were directly from the Lord.  This was, and still is, an extremely important God-directed time period.  In fact, there has NEVER been any 7-Year period in modern history with so many signs, especially numerical signs and astronomical signs, pointing directly to it.
Daniel 12: 9-10 says, "Go thy way, Daniel:  for the words are closed up and SEALED TILL THE TIME OF THE END...BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND." The closer we get to the time of the end, the easier the final puzzle pieces fall into place, and the more progressive revelation comes into play.  First, let us declare a couple of things that this current time period of 2008--2015 is NOT.  The Fall of 2008 thru the Fall of 2015 is NOT the Final 7 Years, nor the Tribulation, nor the time of Jacob's Trouble, nor the 70th Week of Daniel.  There are still those who are trying to make it fit, and actually believe that somehow Jesus will Return this coming Fall to set up His Millennial Kingdom.  Much as I would like that to happen, it pains me to say that it is NOT going to happen.
I can say this with 100% confidence, simply because God has never, and cannot, and will NEVER, go against what is written in the Word of God.  The Word is perfect, infallible, completely accurate, never contradictory, and totally reliable and unchangeable.  In Daniel and Revelation, several events are listed that are to take 42 months.  NONE of those events have yet happened, so this means that we are not yet into The Great Tribulation, and cannot possibly be over 6 Years into the Final 7 Years.  We should not look for some allegorical or historical interpretation of Revelation, nor should we try to explain a severely shortened possible timetable because of the "shortening of days".  Three and one-half years means three and one-half years.  Time, times, and half a time means 3 and one-half years.  1260 days means 1260 days.  42 months means 42 months.  These are all Scriptural descriptions that mean the same length of time.  The end-times Biblical prophetical events of Daniel and Revelation, involving 42 months have not yet started.  Therefore, they CANNOT possibly end in the Fall of 2015.
In my opinion, we can also safely rule out that God has changed his mind about this 7-Year period, because of a massive widespread repentence, like that of Jonah's 40-day warning to Ninevah.  I challenge anybody to show us anything close to a worldwide repentence that has caused God to change His mind.  On the contrary, most of the world is on a slippery slope to Hell, and the inevitable slide into the fiery judgments of the Book of Revelation and the signs are accelerating daily.  I dare to say that there has been NO delay in His fast-approaching judgment.  God has known from the beginning the dates of the Tribulation, and is such a God of numbers, that the unchangeable Day of Destiny, Days of Tribulation, Days of Judgment, and Day of the Lord, cannot, and will not, change.
So, where does that leave us?  Why were the signs so obvious and compelling and overwhelming, and seemingly Biblically correct, pointing us DIRECTLY to Oct. 29, 2008, to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, to be what we thought would be the Final 7 Years, the Years of Tribulation?  I am now going to give you FIVE Biblical explanations as to just what the 7-Year period of the Fall of 2008 thru the Fall of 2015 was, and still is (as we have not yet reached the End of that period).
These five explanations, I am extremely confident, are Biblically correct and accurate.  There is a sixth probable explanation, which seems to be Biblically correct, but I cannot quite yet line up all of the Scriptures with it.  I have decided to share that explanation in a future post.  It is in regards to Sir Isaac Newton's different interpretation of Daniel, Chapter 9.  Be prepared now to become amazed as to why the Final 7 Years, the years of the Tribulation, will almost certainly BEGIN in the Fall of 2015, and notEND in the Fall of 2015. 
To those of you who would like a reminder as to ALL of the many signs, and markers, Biblical numbers, and astronomical signs that pointed us directly to this 7-Year time period of Oct. 29, 2008, when the Antichrist, Barack Hussein Obama, confirmed a covenant with many, to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, (an EXACT period of 2520 days, or 7 Prophetic Years), go to my website at www.thefinal7yearsareherenow.com .  It has not yet been updated to reflect the progressive revelation included in this post, as the Final 7 Years are NOT here NOW, but should begin this coming Fall.
1.  THE TYPOLOGY OF JOSEPH. 
During my years of study at Bible College, where I also taught Bible Prophecy after I graduated, my two favorite classes were Bible Prophecy and Typology.  For the first time, I learned that the Old Testament, thru typology, just like the New Testament, was all about Jesus.  Jesus is CONCEALED to us in the O.T., thru Prophecy and Types, and REVEALED to us in the N.T.  The WHOLE Bible revolves and centers around Jesus Christ.  That was a brand new concept to me.  Little did I realize just how accurate and in-depth that concept is.  It totally changes the way that we should be reading the O.T.  We should be looking for JESUS in the entire Word of God.  It makes reading God's Word so much more exciting and fulfilling.
There are many types of Jesus in the O.T.  Some of them are Noah, Moses, Joshua, Melchizidek, Jonah, and Joseph.  By far, the most complete type of Christ was Joseph.  He is as close to being sinless as anybody in the O.T., just like the real sinless one, Jesus.  Many of the smallest details in the life of Joseph are a perfect type of the life of Jesus.  So, it would be unthinkable that the 7 Years of Famine in Joseph's time did not parallel the Final 7 Years of Tribulation, pointing to the 2nd Coming of Christ.  The 7 Years of Famine are a TYPE of the 7 Years of Tribulation, during which a worldwide Famine is prophesied in Revelation.
Because Joseph is easily the MOST COMPLETE type of Christ found in the Bible, we simply cannot ignore that BEFORE THERE COULD BE THE 7 YEARS OF FAMINE, THERE HAD TO BE 7 GOOD YEARS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE 7 BAD YEARS OF FAMINE.  This can be easily understood by reading about the two dreams of Pharaoh.  Joseph accurately interpreted those dreams to mean there would be 7 Good Years, immediately followed by the 7 Years of Famine. 
It has become obvious to me, through hindsight, and through progressive revelation, that the Fall of 2008, through the Fall of 2015, ARE THE 7 GOOD YEARS THAT WILL IMMEDIATELY BE FOLLOWED BY THE THE FINAL 7 BAD YEARS, THE YEARS OF FAMINE, THE TRIBULATION YEARS.  Because of typology, God could not do something to His creation so destructive and devasting as the judgments of Revelation without giving us a well-defined 7 Good Years timetable first.  By outlining so very many signs and markers and astronomical signs and Biblical number calculations DIRECTLY pointing to the 7-Year (even to the 2520 days EXACTLY) period of Oct. 29, 2008, to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, God was graciously giving us the dates of the Final 7 Good Years, that will be directly followed by the 7 Years of Famine, or Tribulation. 
There has NEVER been, in modern history, so many perfect calculations that validated and confirmed and EXACTLY identified this 2008--2015 timeline so precisely RIGHT TO THE VERY DAY, as a VERY important 7-Year period to God.  What a gracious and merciful God we have!!  In fact, Mathman calculated the odds that all of the many perfectly-constructed mathematical calculations and astronomical events for this specific 2520-day timeline simply could NOT be coincidental.  The odds were off the charts.  It was, without a doubt, a divinely-inspired 7-Year period, which leaves us NO doubt that this period was, and is, EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO GOD. 
What is the importance?  The importance is that the 2008--2015 timeline leads us DIRECTLY to the next 7-Year period, the 7 Famine Years, the 70th Week of Daniel, the 7-Year Tribulation.  We have every right to expect the Tribulation to immediately follow this Final 7 Good Years, just like in the time of Joseph.  For those of you who believe in only a 3 and one-half year Tribulation, please keep in mind that this type of Joseph's (who is the most complete type of Christ) life, shows two SEVEN-YEAR uninterrupted periods, just like it did in the time of Joseph.  The first 7-Year period is Oct. 29, 2008, when Obama confirmed his covenant to CHANGE THE WORLD, to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, an EXACT period of 2520 days, or 7 360-day Prophetic years.  The 2nd 7-Year period is the Tribulation, which we can expect to be from the Fall of 2015 to the Fall of 2022. 
2.  SEPTEMBER 23, 2015, STARTS THE YEAR OF JUBILEE, AND IS THE END OF THE FINAL 7 GOOD YEARS. 
For those of you who do not know ALL of the many calculations that confirm and validate this EXACT timeframe of Oct. 29, 2008, when Obama confirmed the covenant with many to CHANGE THE WORLD, to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, let me show you just one more astounding God-inspired calculation.  There are just two MAJOR dates for modern-day Israel.  They are May 14, 1948, when Israel became a nation and June 7, 1967, when Israel re-captured their holy city of Jerusalem in the miraculous 6-Day War. 
God put his stamp of approval on June 7, 1967, as an extremely important marker date for His end-time plan.  I am convinced that this famous date is the starting date for His Final Jubilee cycle of 49 prophetic years.  Why else would God send His angels to miraculously intervene in this 6-Day War of Israel's?  The armies of Israel were vastly outnumbered, and on the verge of defeat,  but there are numerous testimonies from Israeli soldiers of seeing angels intervene in that war, turning the tide in Israel's favor to ensure their victory , showing how important Jerusalem was to God, and how important the date of June 7, 1967, was to God.  It is also my understanding that from the end of the Babylonian captivity of Israel in the O.T., to June 7, 1967, was 2520 years, with 2520 (360 X 7) being the very same number of days in the 7-Year Tribulation.  To say that this date is a very important date to God is a vast understatement.
In Leviticus, we learn all about Sabbatical cycles and Jubilee cycles, and how important they are to God.  A Sabbatical cycle is 7 Prophetic years and a Jubilee cycle is 49 (7X 7) Prophetic years of 360 days each.  The key starting point for calculating these Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles is found in Lev. 25:2, which says, "When you shall come into the land which I shall give to you..."  Until Israel re-captured Jerusalem, they could not say that they possessed the land that the Lord had given to them.  So, June 7, 1967, has to be the starting date for calculating modern-day Israel's first Jubilee cycle.  After the 49-year Jubilee cycle is complete, the 50th Year is then proclaimed ON DAY OF ATONEMENT AS THE YEAR OF JUBILEE.
So,  with God's marker date so very obviously being the day of June 7, 1967, when God intervened on Israel's behalf, so that they could be fully established as being back into their holy land by finally having Jerusalem back in their hands, it is almost certain that we can confidently use this as our starting date to compute one Jubilee cycle of 49 Prophetic years of 360 days each to see when we can expect this long-awaited Year of Jubilee to start. 
The most-written about, and most-anticipated, date in the past several years in Bible Prophecy, in my opinion, is Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015.  Lo, and behold, if we add 49 Prophetic years of 360 days each to June 7, 1967, to find out when the first Jubilee cycle of modern-day Israel should completed, we come EXACTLY TO THIS VERY SAME DATE OF DAY OF ATONEMENT, SEPT 23, 2015!!!!!!!  According to Leviticus 25, Day of Atonement is always the correct day for any Jubilee Year to commence.  How can anybody say that this amazing calculation is just a coincidence?  It is the Day that everything is pointing towards, including the Final Day of the 7-Year covenant confirmed by the Antichrist. 
It is also the Feast Day sandwiched right in between the solar eclipse on Feast of Trumpets, Sept 14, 2015, and the final of the much-written about four blood red moon tetrad on Feast of Tabernacles, Sept. 28, 2015.  Talk about God's marker day!!!!  We have every reason to believe that Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015 will begin the Jubilee Year.  What will that Day, or that Year, bring for Israel???  What will that Day, or Year, bring for the Bride of Christ???  Who will be celebrating this Jubilee Year?
3.  THE TYPOLOGY OF JACOB. 
Please keep in mind that Jacob's name was later changed to Israel.  Jacob had to work TWO SEVEN-YEAR periods to receive his True Bride, of Rachel.  At the end of the 1st  7-Year covenant that Jacob (Israel) had with Laban (a type of the Antichrist), Jacob received a False Bride.  Like Jacob, so too will Israel receive their False Messiah (Obama), at the end of Obama's covenant.   Expecting their True Messiah, in the Fall of 2015, Israel will have to wait another full 7 years to receive their true Messiah, Jesus Christ.  Jacob having to wait two full 7-Year periods to receive his True Bride is a type of Israel having to wait two full 7-Year periods for their True Messiah.  The first was the Fall of 2008 to the Fall of 2015, when the False Messiah, Obama, was elected.  The 2nd 7-Year period will be the 7-Year Tribulation, from the Fall of 2015 to the Fall of 2022.  During the Fall Feast Days in 2022 is when Jesus will literally Return to earth to rule and reign from Israel's Holy City of Jerusalem.  This will be when Jesus sets His feet down on the Mount of Olives on Day of Atonement, on Oct. 5, 2022.  Jesus, who is the Atonement for all sins, returns on Day of Atonement, part of God's perfect Prophetic plan, of having the 1st and 2nd Comings of Jesus be fulfilled on each of the 7 Jewish Holy Days. 
4.  The Antichrist is revealed BEFORE THE TRIBULATION STARTS AND BEFORE THE RAPTURE.  
Let us look at 2nd Thessalonians 2:1, which says, "Now we beseech you, therefore, brethren, BY THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND BY OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM (this capitalized phrase is describing the Rapture of the Bride of Christ).
Verse 3 then goes on to say, "Let no man deceive you by any means; for THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME, except there come a falling away first, and THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION."  Now, whether you believe that THAT DAY is referring to the Rapture, or the Day of the Lord that starts the 7-Year Tribulation, or both, either way it is saying that the revealing of the Antichrist comes first.  Some teach that it is the other way around, but I am convinced that it has been REVEALED to discerning Christians all over the world that Barack Hussein Obama is, or will become, the Antichrist.  We have already mentioned above the fact that Obama confirmed a covenant TO CHANGE THE WORLD EXACTLY 2520 DAYS FROM DAY OF ATONEMENT, SEPT. 23, 2015.  
Just like the other explanations listed above, this sign of the Antichrist being revealed to discerning Christians, happened EXACTLY 7 years BEFORE the start of the Final 7 Years, the Tribulation, and the 70th Week of Daniel.  2nd Thess. 2:1--3 tells us that the Antichrist will be REVEALED BEFORE the Rapture and the start of the Tribulation.  Even though many Christians have not yet been able to discern it, IT HAS HAPPENED.  I wrote a post maybe four or five years ago that there are actually two REVEALINGS of the Antichrist.  The 2nd Revealing will be very obvious, during the Tribulation, and the 1st Revealing of the Antichrist that happened over 6 years ago, is only obvious to discerning Christians. 
The following two unbelievingly exciting paragraphs are from a post, probably from 2009, that Kevin Heckle wrote.  This article gives astronomical confirmation that at 8:00 p.m., EST, Oct. 29, 2008, the Rising of the Beast from the Sea, in Revelation 12, took place.  THIS WAS THE EXACT SAME MINUTE THAT OBAMA BEGAN HIS HALF HOUR SPEECH TO CONFIRM HIS COVENANT WITH MANY TO CHANGE THE WORLD!  This was the only time this astromical sign ever appeared, or ever will appear, in the skies.  This is the final nail in the coffin.  EXACTLY 7 Prophetic years later is Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, the Day that everything is pointing towards.  This was the first REVEALING OF THE ANTICHRIST ON OCT. 29, 2008, AT 8:00 P.M., EST.  THIS WAS OUR 7-YEAR WARNING!!!  This is 100% proof that Obama is the Antichrist!!!
You do not have to understand Kevin's astronomical evidence, as most will not.  All you have to understand is his conclusion, that nails Obama as the Antichrist, and nails Oct.. 29, 2008, as the starting date for the Rising and Revealing of the Antichrist, Barack Hussein Obama, and to understand my conclusion, that this was an EXACT 7-Year Warning from this date of Oct. 29, 2008, that leads directly to the 70th Week of Daniel in the Fall of 2015.  The 2520th Day, or 7 Prophetic
Years, after this astounding astronomical discovery takes us to Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, the first Day of the Jubilee Year.  We have every reason to believe that everything comes to a head in the Fall of 2015.  The world is about to head straight into the Sudden Destruction, the 7-Year Tribulation, and the horrific reign of the Antichrist, Barack Hussein Obama.  How could God make it any simpler?
KEVIN HECKLE'S AMAZING, UNBELIEVABLE ASTRONOMICAL DISCOVERY: 
Both representations of Satan, Draco and Serpens stalk Virgo, waiting to DEVOUR her man-child.  A LINE ‘cast down’ from Draco’s mouth-devourer (star Nu Draconis) through the Serpens’ mouth-devourer (star Gamma Serpentis) extending to below the sea (equator), also intersects with the tip of the tail of Hydra – Hy58 (beast rising from the sea).  It was a surprise to me that the line intersected the tip of the tail of Hydra.  The tip of the tail would represent the BEGINNING of the BEAST RISING FROM the SEA!!!!  However, the more spectacularintersect is with the moon’s orbit on this date and time.   The line from Draco’s mouth, through Serpens’ mouth touching the tip of Hydra’s tail, crosses the moon’s orbit EXACTLY where the NEW MOON was (14h 58min 25 sec RA and -22* 7.7’ declination) on the same date and time the sun had fully ‘clothed’ Virgo!!!!  I checked to see if the same alignment occurred frequently.  I manually checked from 1988 through 2028 and the only occurrence of this alignment intersecting with the Draco-Serpens-Hydra line was the date and time:  10/30/2008 00:00:00 UTC which is October 29, 2008 at 8:00 PM EST!!!!  Make your own conclusions as to the timing of BHO’s ‘covenant with many’.  I believe the alignment is a rare event.  There are a few occasions where moon is in the general vicinity during that time-frame of 1988-2028.  However, I don’t believe there is an occurrence during that time in which the moon is both below the sun’s ecliptic (thus below her left foot) AND a right ascension greater than 14 hours 43 minutes of Right Ascension, which is the RA of the star Mu Virginis, her right foot.  Tofulfill the Biblical description ‘moon below her feet’ the moon would also have to be below the sun’s Ecliptic as Virgo is parallel with this line and the sun passing almost directly over her left heel (star).  

 
Consider this ‘coincidence’: a line passing from Draco’s mouth, throughSerpens’ mouth (Satan cast down) to the tip of Hydra’s tail (the beast rising from the sea) intersects with a new moon at EXACTLY 8:00 PM October 29th, 2008 while Barack Obama is making his promises to the world; from the other end of Draco, a line beginning at the tip of his tail, passing through the feet of the bear, past the mouth of the lion through the head of Hydra (beast rising from the sea) crosses the sun’s Ecliptic at 9 hours RA 17* declination, which is EXACTLY the moment of Barack Obama’s claim of birth in Hawaii, August 4, 1961 at 7:24 PM. Draco’s head is connected to Hydra’s tail and Hydra’s head is connected Draco’s tail through EXACTLY two of the most significant dates in Barack Hussein Obama’s life!!!!! His days are written in the star’s timing EXACTLY as the Bible describes it, intertwined with Satan’s representations of the dragon (Draco), the serpent (Serpens) and the beast rising from the sea (Hydra).

In Christ,

Kevin Heckle

 
AFTER READIN THESE TWO AMAZING BIBLICAL ASTRONOMICAL DISCOVERIES ABOUT OBAMA THE BEAST FROM THE SEA OF NATIONS, WITH INCALCUABLE ODDS, HOW CAN ANYBODY STILL BELIEVE THAT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IS NOT THE ANTICHRIST??
5.  ALL OF THESE EXPLANATIONS ARE 7-YEAR WARNINGS TO THE CHURCH.
We all know that God told us in Matthew 34:27, that "as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."  The parallels of the Days of Noah to the Days leading up to the 2nd Coming of Christ are too numerous to mention.  But we know that God gave Noah a 7-Day Warning before His Judgment fell on all of mankind in the form of the worldwide flood.   Romans 5:20 tells us that where sin abounds, grace does much more abound.  Surely, no one can disagree that sin is abounding on every hand, more than ever before.  So, God, by His mercy and His grace, has decided to give us all a 7-Year Warning before He pours out His Judgments on an unsuspecting world.  A 7-Day Warning for Noah and his family.  A 7-Year Warning for the Church of Jesus.  What a merciful God we serve!
Joseph was given 7 Years to prepare for the Great Famine.  So, should we have expected any less?  On hindsight, this is the explanation that bothers me the most.  I feel like I should have had enough spiritual discernment to expect a defined starting point to the 7 Good Years, before the 7 Bad Years of Tribulation started.  I just wish that I, or somebody, would have been able to discern that the Tribulation was still 7 Years away, back in the Fall of 2008.  But none of us really wanted to believe that it was that far away.  As watchmen, we tend to blow the trumpet when there are signs that the Tribulation MAY be very near.  Typology should have told us that we would know when the 7-Year Warning to prepare happened.  Joseph certainly knew. 
This is why I believe so much in progressive revelation.  Perhaps God did not want it to be known to a lot of people 7 Years in advance.  I suspect there were a few discerning watchmen that might have known back in 2008 that we were still 7 years away from the true Famine Week, the 7-Year Tribulation.  But I honestly do not know of any.  I am just grateful that the Lord has chosen to use me once again, in my calling as a watchman, to warn as many people as I can, that the world only has a few more months to go before the Sudden Destruction, the Judgments of God, the reign of the Antichrist, and the 7-Year Tribulation transpire.  Will you help me warn people?  Send this email to as many people as the Lord leads you too.  Also send me email addresses of Christians who you think would like to be on my mailing list.
The leading Antichrist candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, confirming a 7-Year covenant EXACTLY  7 Years, right to the day, before the day that everything was pointing towards, Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, was A 7-YEAR WARNING!  That would have been a little bit harder to discern because most all watchers are expecting the confirming of a covenant at the START of the Final 7 Years, to begin the Final One Week of 7 Years in Daniel 9.  This is what made it so difficult for us to discern.  Hindsight, and progressive revelation, now confirm to us that it was only a 7-Year Warning. 
Properly discerning the typology with Jacob of TWO 7-Year periods before He received His True Bride, of Rachel, who also is a type of Christ, may have led us to the truth about Oct. 29, 2008, just being a 7-Year Warning, and just the first of two 7-Year periods, before the real Messiah, Jesus, Returns to Israel to rule and reign. These typologies, and explanations, are so much easier to see, AFTER they have happened, than before.  That is why I can't beat myself up too much.  But I apologize for the pre-mature expectations and any problems that my projected timeline of 2008--2015 for the Final 7 Years, may have caused.  My motives were right, and my heart was in the right place.  The really important thing is that NOW we can see it for what it was, and is, which is OUR 7-YEAR WARNING!
I am humbled that the Lord has been able to direct my heart in the right direction these last few months about where we really are in His Prophetic timetable.  I am sure that some of you reading this on 5 Doves, and on my mailing list, are going to doubt that the Lord has been showing me these things.  I am not sure that I can really blame you for that.  I can only write what I am confident that the Lord is directing me to now and leave the results in His hand.  It is up to the Holy Spirit to lead each of us into ALL truth.  But each of us must be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit.  Before sending me those negative and harsh and judgmental responses, please pray about the contents of this email, and then listen for His voice.  That is all that I ask. 
I want to make sure that everybody reading this understands that I am not making any predictions.  But I am saying that we have MANY BIBLICAL reasons to fully EXPECT the 7-Year Tribulation to begin in the Fall of 2015.  As for the Rapture, my best conjecture, based on my study of the Word, and what I feel the Lord is directing me towards, is the date of 11/11/15, the very same day that I EXPECT the Tribulation and Sudden Destruction to begin.  The signs are very compelling, and I will be presenting them in my next post.  I am not ruling out any of the Fall Feast Days of 2015, to be the correct day for the Rapture. 
God has given us a 7-Year Warning.  A 7-Year Heads Up.  A 7-Year Advance Notice.  By His Grace.  By His Mercy.  Receive it, even though it has now become only a 7 to 9-MONTH Warning for most of us.  Way too much is at stake, not to receive the Warnings that God has chosen to give to us.  Many reading this today are simply NOT READY to be part of the Bride of Christ.  That is because many are not saved, but also because many are Christians who are lukewarm, backslidden, non-watchful, or worldly.  If you are in any of these categories, then you will not be part of the Bride of Christ.  I am convinved that the Rapture is a REWARD for those whom the Lord finds worthy.  In the Book of Revelation we are all warned about not becoming one of the Tribulation saints, who entered the Tribulation with dirty robes, and had to go thru the Tribulation, in order to make their robes white.  You do NOT want to be a Tribulation saint.  You want to be part of the Bride of Christ, who has made herself ready.  You want to be a part of the Blessed Hope, the Blessed Escape, the Rapture of the Bride.  Jesus has prepared a way of escape from ALL of it, as per Luke 21:34--36.  Prepare, as time is of the essence.  You have been warned!
Here is our WARNING FROM JESUS to ALL of the end-times Christians, in Luke 21:34-36. "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any tme your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (partying), and drunkenness, AND CARES OF THIS LIFE, and so that day come upon you unawares (unexpectedly).  For as a snare (Sudden Destruction) shall it come on all them who dwell on the face of the earth.  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that you may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man (Jesus)."
Everything points to the Fall of 2015.  In my next post, I will be giving to you SEVERAL reasons why I am fully EXPECTING (not predicting) 11/11/2015 to be the Day of Destiny, the Day that starts the 7-Year Tribulation. 
Maranatha!

"STRANGE PROPHETIC SILENCE PART ONE" FROM THE TERRY JAMES PROPHECY LINE.

New post on Terry James Prophecy Line

  Strange Prophetic silence – Part 1

by Terry James
Some who observe these prophetic times often make the observation that there seems to be a strange lack of prophetic activity; nothing in the news rivets the observer in the dramatic way, say, that an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities might grab one’s attention.
This perception of a lull in prophetic progression, as it is called, might seem at first nonsensical, considering the tremendous procession of probable end-times issues and events that we address each week. Geopolitically, there are many signals of biblically prophetic significance. The European Union (EU) continues to consolidate power while remaining at the same time loosely confederated. Certainly, we legitimately can and do make the case for this strange entity being the likely candidate for producing revived Rome–the ten toes of iron and miry clay given in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream-vision of the final world empire (Daniel 2).
Russia is a brooding giant to Israel’s north, and at every opportunity, Iran threatens the Jewish state with oblivion. These nations combine with Turkey and others to constitute a coalescing agglomerate that has the characteristics of the foretold Gog-Magog military machine of Ezekiel 38 and 39.
Russia’s Vladimir Putin openly displays ambition that easily qualifies him as one who might aspire to be the Gog of the Ezekiel prophecies. Iran’s leaders spouts the kind of hatred for God’s chosen people that the prince of Persia no doubt will use to inspire Iran’s (Persia’s) fanatical tyrants to join with Gog in raging against Israel in that satanic attack (Daniel 10:20).
Recently, Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has brought his nation into the Iranian and Arab world’s mantra for Israel to, in effect, be neutralized–be eradicated as an entity in the Middle East. Thus, Ezekiel’s prophecy about the Gog-Magog forces continues to congeal, with the ancient area of Togarmah now firmly within the foretold mix of peoples that will storm over the mountains of Israel to meet their God-ordained doom.
So, again, it seems nonsensical to say that there is a lack of prophetic progression, based upon such spectacular developments. Yet some clearly see the strange disconnect, and, I must say, I agree with this assessment. And, still the signals of this being the very end of the age continue to accrue.
Socioeconomically, the end-times signals are prolific, with the whole world in distress. The U.S. and world-wide monetary crises are nothing short of earth-shaking. With the global financial structure intricately linked to the U.S. dollar and its economy, America’s possible banking meltdown and all attendant to such a potential disaster, had the international financial gurus who are in the know poised in the near-panic position. The panic is unabated, despite America throwing trillions of dollars that don’t really exist into the fiscal fiasco.
Rioting in Greece, Spain, Italy, and other so-called “civilized” countries displayed in blatant fashion the economic turmoil. Rage over government-provided social services being withdrawn and jobs cut from government, along with unions losing their funding, caused–and continue to cause–withdrawal spasms like those suffered by addicts needing their heroin fixes.
The nations are in distress with perplexity, just as Jesus prophesied as recorded in Luke 21:25. There is a call for a rearrangement of the economic order. It is just such an order that will serve Antichrist’s dastardly regime as he sets about to enslave the world. His 666 numbers-and-mark system as found in Revelation 13:16-18 can be seen in the making in these very days in which we live.
The electronic means to produce such a system exists, too. The computer-satellite capabilities and linkages–with Internet connecting practically every place on earth--doubtless will be all brought together in some spectacular way to produce the Beast’s system of economic gulag.
Ironically, about the only area of the world that seems to be progressing economically is part of Asia–particularly one specific nation that almost certainly has a prophetic destiny. While the economic and technological apex nation of the world–the United States of America—is suffering, causing the other industrial nations and socialist countries to suffer, that great prophetic Oriental region of the world benefits mightily from the distress and perplexity. China holds much of the debt owed by the most economically powerful nation ever to exist!
China will almost certainly be the "king" of the "kings" of the east mentioned in Revelation chapters 9 and 16. It is even now apparently acquiring the level of wealth that will assure the accumulation of military strength with which to (along with demonic assistance of major magnitude) kill one-third of the world’s population (Revelation 9:15-16, 16:12).
It seems beyond irony that it is the U.S. that is funding most of the Sino-monster. It is the American technological/wealth base that has been primarily instrumental also in providing the financial wherewithal for paving Antichrist’s future kingdom. It is perhaps within these fiscal facts that can be found America’s own ultimate judgment for straying so far from the godly founding principles upon which it was based. Yet there is this strange silence of prophetic progression that is quite disconcerting. Let us further examine the matter next time.

WHAT ABOUT THE CHRISTIANS AND ISRAELIS BURNED ALIVE? THE WORLD'S MEDIA SEEMS TO CONVENIENTLY IGNORE THESE MAJOR, MAJOR TRAVESTIES!!!

Op-Ed: What about the Christians and Israelis burned alive?”

Where is the collective outrage about all those, including Americans, burned alive by terrorists? Is it because they were Jews? Christians?
 
 
Islamic State, which burned the Jordanian pilot alive, now symbolizes the most absolute horror, and is exorcised as “barbaric” and not "true" Islam. A Muslim killed by Muslims, the perfect victim, which fills the Western world's appeasing and empty conscience.
The same collective indignation, the same harsh words on the front pages of Western newspapers, were not seen for the “wrong victims” of other human Islamic bonfires.

Ayala Shapira hovered between life and death, totally ignored by the West.
Two months ago in Pakistan, a Christian couple was burned alive in a brick kiln by an angry crowd of 400 Muslims. The two Christians were married, had three children and Shama was also pregnant. Before that, there were 5 Christians burned alive on the island of Java, Indonesia, after being trapped in a church to which a mob of thousands of Muslims had set fire. And a year ago, 42 Nigerian Christian students were burned alive in a public school in Mamudo by the apocalyptic Boko Haram. But these Christians, turned into human candles, didn’t deserve Western attention, but were treated as pariahs by the West.
And when in the spring of 2004, four American contractors were burned alive and their poor remains hanged from the rafters on the Euphrates in front of a cheering Islamic crowd, there was not only indifference for them, but many Westerners watched their remains cannibalized by the glorious Iraqi people. In the West it was called “resistance” by legions of journalists, writers, diplomato, NGOs and parliaments.
When it comes to Israel, Western public opinion believed all the false stories of Palestinian civilians burned by non-existent phosphorus bombs of the Israeli army. The West not only ignored all the buses, restaurants, cafĂ© and commercial malls where the Israeli Jews were burned alive by  Palestinian suicide bombers. It encouraged them. A month ago, a young Israeli girl was purposely burned alive in a terrorist attack in Samaria. Ayala Shapira hovered between life and death, totally ignored by the West. In Israel there are children with burned faces, unusable hands, and people who say they do not want to live anymore because they still feel the smell of burning flesh. Who cares for their burned skin?
And what about Ilan Halimi, the first victim of this new wave of anti-Semitism in France, a Jewish boy kidnapped, tortured for two weeks and then burned alive in a shabby Parisian banlieue?  
Christians, Jews, whether American, French or other nationalities … Human pyres not only ignored by the West, but set on fire by shameful Western indifference and complacency. Their blood is water.

"MUSLIM PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IS A CENTURIES OLD PHENOMENON" WRITES THE HIGHLY RESPECTED RAYMOND IBRAHAIM.

Muslim Persecution of Christians: A Centuries Old Phenomenon

Egypt Church burning after attack 300px
http://www.raymondibrahim.com/muslim-persecution-of-christians/muslim-persecution-of-christians-a-centuries-old-phenomenon/
The one glaring fact concerning the persecution of approximately 100 million Christians around the world today is that the overwhelming majority of it is being committed by Muslims of all races, nationalities, languages, and socio-political circumstances: Muslims from among America’s allies (Saudi Arabia) and from its enemies (Iran); Muslims from economically rich nations (Qatar) and from poor nations (Somalia and Yemen); Muslims from “Islamic republic” nations (Afghanistan) and from “moderate” nations (Malaysia and Indonesia); Muslims from nations rescued by America (Kuwait) and Muslims from nations claiming “grievances” against the U.S. (fill in the blank __).
This fact is underscored in Open Doors’ recent 2015 World Watch List—a report that highlights and ranks the 50 worst nations persecuting Christians. It finds that “Islamic extremism” is the main source of persecution in 40 of the top 50 countries—that is, 80 percent of the nations where Christians are persecuted are Muslim. As for the top ten worst countries persecuting Christians, nine of them are Muslim-majority—that is, 90 percent of nations where Christians experience “extreme persecution” are Muslim.
Still, considering that the 2015 World Watch List ranks North Korea—non-Islamic, communist—as the number one worst persecutor of Christians, why belabor the religious identity of Muslims? Surely Christian persecution is not intrinsic to the Islamic world, but is a product of repressive regimes and other socio-economic factors—as the North Korean example suggests and as many analysts and media maintain?
Here we come to some critically important but blurred distinctions. While Christians are indeed suffering extreme persecution in North Korea, these fall into the realm of the temporal and aberrant. Something as simple as overthrowing the North Korean regime would likely end persecution there overnight—just as the fall of Communist Soviet Union saw religious persecution come to a quick close.
[...]
Time, however, is not on the side of Christians living amid Muslims; quite the opposite. The histories compiled by objective, medieval Muslims make abundantly clear that century after century of religious persecution and discrimination is responsible for transforming territory that in the seventh century made up half of the Christian world—Egypt, Syria, Turkey, North Africa—into what is today casually called the “Muslim world.”
One example: in Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi’s (d. 1442) authoritative history of Egypt—which was a major center of Christianity before Islam invaded—anecdote after anecdote is recorded of Muslims burning churches, slaughtering Christians, enslaving their women and children. The only escape then—and even today, as groups like the Islamic State make clear—was for Christians to convert to Islam.
After recording one particularly egregious bout of persecution, where reportedly some 30,000 churches in Egypt and Syria were destroyed, the pious Muslim historian concludes: “Under these circumstances a great many Christians became Muslims.”... KEEP READING
