Prophecy Dude Shares: Types of Karaoke Machines

Looking for an appropriate Karaoke Machine for your home? Not sure which machine to choose for yourself? Well, a Karaoke Machine is an effective way to have a little fun at your place every now and then. However, there are different types of Karaoke Machines available which makes it slightly difficult to choose the right one for yourself.

Here we have described the different types of Karaoke machines and how they differ from each other. Once you know more about each type of the Karaoke Machine, you will be able to make a better decision while selecting one for yourself.

All-in-One Karaoke System

If you are looking for a complete Karaoke System for your home which doesn’t require you to get additional components, then this system is the perfect one for you.

It includes all that components that you might need to read, play and hear the song as it comes with a CD player, speakers and a monitor to display the lyrics of the songs. Although an All-in-one system includes all the components, it doesn’t come with a music library so you will need to acquire a Karaoke CD library before you can start having fun with it. If you don’t have the CD library, then you will need to get the special CDs before you can use the machine.

TV Monitor System

In this type of system, you will have the karaoke CD player and one or more speakers but you won’t have a monitor to display the song lyrics. You will need to hook this system with your stereo system or your television to display the lyrics of the songs. You will also find a few sleeker designs in this system which are usually smaller than a DVD player but you require a TV for these systems too. Many TV monitor systems come with a large library of CD songs but in some systems, you might need to purchase the songs too.

Built-in Microphone System

One of the easiest and most convenient karaoke system which comes with a microphone and a built-in song selection, an easy TV, and stereo system hookup. It is a kind of TV Monitor system in which the built-in microphone is the player itself. You will find that different cartridges in this system are available with many songs but some microphones already contain 300 or more songs in it.

MP3 System

One of the most modern and popular Karaoke system in today’s time is the MP3 system which consists of digital downloads of the MP3 songs and lyrics of the songs that are used in the MP3 system. This is the smallest type of karaoke system and it doesn’t use karaoke CDs. However, you would need a monitor to reach the lyrics of the songs but since you can easily download the karaoke songs, you can remove the vocal leads. You don’t have to wait in this karaoke system as you can download the song whenever they are available which makes it more fun and convenient than other karaoke systems.

Love Wins, the Strong Delusion

Love Wins, the Strong Delusion

Jesus Himself provided two images He used as signs for us to identify the last days.

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:  They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26-27

 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;  but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Luke 17:28-29

The end result of both of these historic events that also serve as models for the end time is destruction.

In the days of Noah scene, Jesus provides a distinction in marriage by mentioning it twice:  “they married wives” and “they were given in marriage.” Each of these “marriages” is different leading us to believe one is in character distinct from the other. Definitely, there was an issue with marriage in those days as we are experiencing today.

The days of Noah is also characterized by a rainbow that God set as a covenant sign that He would not destroy the world with a physical flood of water again. The use of the rainbow image is employed by the LGBT community as a banner for their sexual cause—a definitely ties with the days of Noah and the end times in which we live. Curiously, the LGBT rainbow is limited to six bands, while God’s rainbow has seven. Six is the number of man and three sixes, the Bible tells us, is the identity of the Antichrist.

As God used a flood to purge the earth of evil caused by demonic manipulation of DNA, there will be a flood once again in the end times—a flood of delusion.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,  that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

The strong delusion leads humanity to believe the lie. Not a lie, but the lie. This is a very specific lie.

The second historical event cited by Jesus as an indicator of the end times is about Lot, the nephew of Abraham who chose to move his family toward a more worldly lifestyle in Sodom and Gomorrah.  Genesis 19 reveals the sexually depraved lifestyle of that time that led to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Humanity’s modern move toward sexual depravity reveals to us that we are in the last days and headed towards end time’s promised wrath.

The United States’ Supreme Court, in a divided decision, agreed with darkness when it released its decision June 26 to allow same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Many of us felt a shift as the umbrella of blessing and protection moved away exposing the USA to the consequences of evil. In agreeing with darkness, a door has opened exposing the USA to more evil. It will come like a flood.

It’s time for the church to arise in courage and honor.

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Matt. 5:11-12)

The End-Time Crisis: God’s Response to the Rage against Jesus

Mike Bickle presented God’s response to the growing rage against Jesus and His people at the International House of Prayer’s 2014 One Thing conference. It resonates with the tone for these days in which we live.

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us. Psalm 2:1-3

These first three verses in King David’s prophecy demonstrate the fierce opposition to Jesus’ leadership. They seek to “remove the influence of His Word from society. Is this happening now more than ever?

Need more proof? Click our link Hated by all Nations and read many articles demonstrating especially in the last three years were a real turn against the Bible and Christianity is becoming the favored norm. It’s evident, it’s clear, and no one can deny it. Biblical prophecy is fulfilling.

Bickle stated that “These leaders will oppose the truth about Jesus and His definitions of salvation, love, purity, and justice. This is happening predominately in many traditional Christian denominations, but evangelical groups are not without pressure.

More on that stuff here: A Form of Godliness.

Bickle states that before Jesus returns, “both godliness and sin will reach their greatest heights in history, resulting in a falling away from the faith. He adds that “both light and darkness will increase at the same time:

Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1

Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Matthew 13:30, 39

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,  speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,  forbidding to marry… 1 Timothy 4:1-3

Bickle uses Psalm 2 to reveal the Father’s response to the rage of the nations:

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion. Psalm 2:4-6

And then Jesus’ response in intercession is found in Psalm 2:7-9

“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’

We see the signs of the end times. We know we are in the last days; we just don’t know how long this will last, but when we think we have reached the bottom, humanity’s rage will worsen. Even in the tribulation, they will continue to rage against God rather than repent and turn to Him.

They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds. Revelation 16:11

With a mission to not just endure to the end, but to preach the gospel of the Kingdom, we have to be about the Master’s business. Bickle states, “The Psalm 2 crisis requires a Joel 2 response, resulting in an Acts 2 outpouring of the Spirit. The church would do well to contend for this.

Satan may cause the nations to rage, but he can’t stop the church or the plan of God. The nations are the inheritance of Jesus. We are part of that. Just go…

Is America positioning to split apart?

So, how do you explain this?

Not many years ago, government takeover claims by wild-eyed anti-government conspiracy theorists received amused chuckles and dismissive head shakes from most Americans. Not so anymore. The climate in this nation is at its lowest level of trust ever. Untrusting groups form unions to support and provide confidence to one another and mob-mentality obscures sound reason.  So, now what would have been silly articles relegated to garage presses are mainline news today.

All of that describes the political division in the United States. This nation is a divided people, and an American flag splitting down the center at a national event for all to see depicts physically what is happening politically.

But what is happening spiritually in America could split the nation physically, and the torn flag may also be a sign depicting this spiritual split.

And if that’s not enough, try this:

The United States has boldly stepped away from divine protection.  The United States has incurred a curse.

“You shall have no other gods before Me.

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,  but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.    Exodus 20:3-5

The United States has not incurred one curse, but another, older than this one, with its treatment of Israel. From the moment President Harry Truman led the United States in blessing Israel by being the first world nation to recognize Israel as a nation in 1948, the US moved in unprecedented prosperity. Whether a nation serves God or not, any nation that blesses Israel is promised favor in this pre-law, ancient Abrahamic covenant blessing.

I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:2

And this is how the United States is turning from the Truman path and taking up the Obama lightening rod:

Simple and clear. The United States has opened itself to two types of Biblical curses. How can the flag not split?

End time prophecy discourse in the Prophet Ezekiel’s writings and John’s in Revelation don’t mention the United States. Although a few prophecy scholars make obscure references to some scripture references that they suggest showing the US, most scholars agree—the United States is conspicuously absent in Biblical prophecy. In the end, Israel stands alone as a nation delivered by God Himself. So, what happens to the United States?

Is it possible that the United States will split not only politically, spiritually but also physically? A dream and vision by Pastor and Evangelist John Kilpatrick suggest this:

Maybe there is hope. The flag isn’t fully ripped yet. Is there a chance for America to turn back and mend the rip? Something drastic will have to happen. Meanwhile, America’s enemies patiently wait.

Five Signs the Church May Now Be Falling Away

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 2 Thessalonians 2:3

The-assured-sign

The assured sign concerning the coming of Jesus and our gathering together with Him is this “falling away.” It’s been described as a great apostasy of the church resulting in a remnant of faithful ones. Are we seeing signs of this apostasy?  Recent real-life events seem to show we are there, and it’s clear there are five distinct signs that it’s happening now.

I’ve provided several links to news articles showing this gradual falling away. Research proves there are people leaving the church. For many in the mainline denominations, the church is leaving the people.

Probably the first step of the church falling away is a step away from the belief that God’s word is inerrant. In fact, in some instances, only parts with which people agree are respected and the “disagreeable” parts of the Bible are discarded. Some people can’t or just refuse to reconcile their lives with the purity of God’s word, so they toss it and write their own Bible; something that fits more with their chosen lifestyle.

This is nothing new; Satan, in the form of a serpent, cast doubt about the accuracy of God’s Word in his presentation to Eve in Genesis 3:1. He tried to pull the same tactic with Jesus in His temptation in Luke 4:1-13.

The church falling into compromise is another step off the cliff. Some churches are scrubbing away everything that offends and turns people off in an effort to become more accepting. Some churches have carried this task to the extent there is no appearance of difference between the church and the world and new age cults.

Church leaders yielding to sin and bringing reproach on the gospel fosters apathy and disgust causing many to leave. Satan’s tactic to diminish respect for the church and leadership reaches its zenith when they fall into vile sin.

The concept of “servant” in servant-leadership is abandoned and authority is abused. This is a definite characteristic of Satan’s false leadership. Nothing in it flows with humility or service, but only selfishness and personal gratification, and the viler the more successful is Satan’s destruction.

Then there is the huge move towards sanctioning gay marriage in churches. We find it odd that marriage is in decline where couples are choosing to cohabitate, yet homosexuals want to marry legally and do so in the church. Yep, that is weird and a sure mark of Satan.

The Satanic plot behind the homosexual movement is to mock the Biblical concept of marriage because it represents the relationship between Christ and the church. For more about that read my blog posts They hate marriage and chicken sandwiches, don’t they?  and Gay End Times. Homosexual marriage is a mockery but also a perversion of what God created and called good. Satan wins when temples of God’s breath commit perverted acts.

The enemy’s agenda is all too clear; sanction homosexuality in the church to demonstrate his hatred to God.

The final falling away that removes the ability for God to bless is the movement towards despising Israel. The Bible is perfectly clear that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who don’t operate under a curse.

General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army in the late 19th Century made this statement:

In answer to your inquiry, I consider that the chief dangers that confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell. Did General Booth speak prophetically? Sure seems like it.

Even though a lukewarm church bathed in the filth of the world is falling away, God will always reserve a remnant. Those who seek Him and His kingdom first will find it and in these last days, they will bring Glory to God by being the generation to fulfill His promise of a church without spot or wrinkle that goes about healing the sick, casting out devils, freely receiving and freely giving.

They hate marriage and chicken sandwiches, don’t they ?

Who hates marriage? Probably only those in bad marriage situations would say that, but there is momentum against marriage that is propelled by a powerful force. Most people love marriage or at least the idea of it. Even gay’s want to get married. In fact, it seems nowadays homosexuals want to get married and heterosexuals want to just live together.  Both of these strike against marriage, and actually work to demonstrate disdain for it. And restaurant chains who believe in God’s definition of marriage are under attack. It’s a chicken sandwich, for crying out loud. Eat someplace else.

The natural purpose of marriage, as defined by the one who created it, is for re-creation and recreation.  It was designed to place in covenant protection and blessing a family unit that would establish a portal of blessing for human propagation.  The other reason is for a married couple’s pleasure and enjoyment as they express intimacy within covenant protection and blessing—that’s the recreation part.

“Well, he permitted it,” they replied. “He said a man can give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away.” But Jesus responded, “He wrote this commandment only as a concession to your hard hearts. But God made them male and female’ from the beginning of creation. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”

Later, when he was alone with his disciples in the house, they brought up the subject again. He told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries someone else, she commits adultery.”  Mark 10:4-12

It’s unfortunate in these passages of scripture, the deeper message, the secret thing, that Jesus was trying to bring forth was missed by the disciples, and sadly, many Christians miss this message too because we get so focused on the legal issue related to divorce we miss the deeper and more important message here. It’s all about intimacy.

Marriage was created by Father God to demonstrate physically what He wants spiritually which is intimacy. The marriage covenant is established by legal public ceremony and the physical act of sexual intercourse—both of those are required.  This is a blood covenant, where virgins demonstrate the shedding of blood through the act of marriage. That’s the ideal plan perfectly executed. All of this represents what Father God desires spiritually. The groom represents Christ and the bride represents the church in covenant and intimacy.

Jesus is teaching here that marriage between a man and woman, creates completeness, and once joined, they are joined not just physically, but intimately–both spiritually and in the soul. If that union is split, it creates a deeper emptiness that affects the whole being because the process of joining goes deep and intimately throughout the whole being, spirit, soul, and body.

The bottom line is this:  marriage between a man and a woman represents the intimate relationship between Christ and the church and Satan hate it. He is working to destroy the sanctity of marriage by trashing it, minimizing it, and reducing it to a worthless level where it has no respect. He first worked to minimize it by working to increase the acceptance of cohabitation in society as a common practice that carries no shame, and now he’s swinging the next knife blade to further minimize marriage by driving homosexuals to demand their rights to what is reserved for a man and woman. This is the ultimate in desecration. It’s no different than the desecration the Jews witnessed when Antiochus Epiphanes slaughtered the pig on the Temple altar. Homosexuality and cohabitation are desecrations on the altar of marriage.

Homosexuals may believe they demonstrate a love for marriage by demanding rights to that institution reserved for a male and female, but in reality, they are falling in line with the plan of Satan in his hatred of everything Godly—they are mere pawns of  Satan’s minions. The roles and gender makeups can only be achieved in the union of a man and woman in a true Godly marriage.

And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord.  For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church.  As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word.  He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.  In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.  No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church.  And we are members of his body.  As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.  So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.  Ephesians 5:21-33

A husband and wife prophetically demonstrate the relationship of the church and Jesus. Nothing else can do that.

Gay End Times

For some reason, it seems over this last week or so there has been a flurry of activity all over the world related to same-sex marriage and the legitimization of homosexuality in one form or another.

In the United States, the New York State Assembly approved a same-sex marriage bill. It has yet to be approved by the Republican-dominated Senate, but Governor Andrew Cuomo has his full support behind it—in fact, he wrote the bill. GLESN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) has been awarded by the US Federal Government funding for five-years to promote homosexuality to school children.

California’s Proposition 8 keeps making the news. This was a same-sex marriage ban voted into law by the people but overturned in court by a federal judge who later disclosed he was gay. Ignoring obvious conflict of interest, a district judge recently upheld the gay judge’s ruling overturning the people’s vote for a ban on same-sex marriage. The “agenda” keeps getting pushed forward. Americans think the US gay population is around 25% and I’m sure that’s because of all the attention and support gay rights advocates are generating as they work hard to legitimize their lifestyle choice, but in reality, homosexuals make up around 3.5% of the overall US population.

It seems there are more in the United States because the media representation is inflated—which is an effective tactic. Ardent viewers of the US’s HGTV can’t help but think so with homosexuals seemingly on every other of its shows. The strategy here, and in another television programming, is to consistently demonstrate that homosexuals are normal human beings—they live just like you do. You even get peeks into their bedrooms and their bedrooms look like anyone else’s.

The Obama administration seems to have focused its attention these last couple of weeks on propelling efforts to legitimize the gay lifestyle. The White House opened up a web portal to reach gays for election. Does he really need to do that? Aren’t gays already squarely in support of him, and won’t they go straight to the polls for him?

In an effort to affect the workplace and force companies to legitimize gay couple relationships, gay supporters are targeting employers. According to Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, professional intimidation is the same-sex lobby’s new modus operandi for furthering its agenda.

The Toronto school board told parents they cannot opt their children out of the pro-homosexual curriculum. The school board is all about equity and anti-homophobia.

According to Daniel Baer, a deputy in the US State Department, the US State Department is proud of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride. That takes it straight to the government level squarely supporting and legitimizing the gay choice.

And if that’s not enough, the Obama administration is stepping up their aggressive approach by instructing schools on how to form gay student clubs.

The constant tapping on the human psyche, the constant, relentless tapping by gradually, subtly legitimizing the homosexual choice lifestyle a little here and a little there until it seems normal until it seems right until one feels guilty for even thinking it’s wrong, is what this is all about. They begin with our children by indoctrinating them from the crib so that they will grow up with this new worldview for what they want us to believe is right. Speaking against homosexuality in the public arena now will be met with criticism. Homosexuals have crossed into the historical civil rights path as a model for their efforts with a good amount of success.

When it hits the church, then you have full legitimization. It’s hitting the church.

They even tried knocking on the Southern Baptist Convention’s door, but the door was politely closed.

It’s amazing how effective gay legitimization—cultural change has been. Even whole church denominations are struggling at the top levels with the subject of gay legitimization. If the church changes to accept the gay rights groups will have the cultural change they are after. Equally amazing is how churches are abandoning their sacred tenets, their long-held beliefs, and the once tightly held authority of the Bible to embrace this illicit lifestyle. No apology—it is illicit because the Bible says so.

  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
  • Leviticus 18:22 Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.

The good news is found in verse 11 following 1Corinthians 6:9-10 above which says: Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. There is no sign that Jesus’ death and resurrection didn’t deal with, and when we accept what He did on the cross and follow Him as our Lord and Savior, and walk in the light as He is in the light…

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:7-8.

We need to understand that homosexuals are not the enemy of the church or the Bible.  Satan is the enemy and he hates the marriage concept of one man and one woman. This relationship, created by God, is the earthly, physical representation of the relationship between Christ and the church as so described by Paul Ephesians 5:22-33. When a marriage of a man and woman are functioning in the pattern designed by God, they are physically representing the mysterious union of Christ and the church until that union is solemnized at the catching away and then the actual physical union with Christ. Satan hates and attempts to destroy anything that is or represents this plan of God.  There is nothing more antichrist than homosexuality. Yes, the effort and results of legitimizing homosexuality—which is the antichrist and antichurch, is a definite end time sign.

Israel is a remarkably blessed nation

Israel is a blessed nation—a remarkably blessed nation. While many countries are reeling from the downturned economy and contracting with austerity measures, Israel continues to expand and seems to be doing even better in this downturn. That’s remarkable.

The Bank of England just announced it has to go back and cut once again its UK growth forecast.  The US Treasury is taking “extraordinary measures” to avoid its debt limit, and with a recent credit downgrade by Standard and Poor’s, the A+ positive rating for Israel really stands out like a victorious flag waving above financial turmoil.

Once advances in technology seemed to be related to the United States or Japan, but Israel is getting noticed in this arena as well.

That’s just a small example of what is happening in Israel with technology. That’s enough to cause Warren Buffett to say, “Israel has a disproportionate amount of brains.” Israel is remarkably blessed indeed. (For more on this and future related postings, click here. )   Businesses, nations, and people who recognize this blessing and connect with Israel are receiving Abraham’s covenant blessing decreed by God where He tells Abraham, “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3) Why wouldn’t you want to tap into that!

Israel’s expertise in agriculture has impacted the world and if the nations of the world would covenant with Israel, there could be a huge impact on reducing worldwide hunger. Israel has learned to apply technology to create an agri-efficiency model that has made a tremendous impact. The article, Israel Helps World’s Deserts Bloom, highlights a conference in Israel described as impacting 200 million people worldwide with agri-technology and skills targeted to reduce famine and worldwide hunger. Another article describes how Israel is spreading this agriculture miracle to other drought-stricken nations. Israel is also impacting the world with its learned expertise in irrigation technology, water management and treatment, and desalination

The Bible prophesied this in Isaiah 35:1 where the word simply says: “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.” Out of this desert land comes not only the agricultural blessing but the technology blessing as well making an undeniable and remarkable impact on the world. This tiny nation which began as nothing but through the covenant promise and prophetic decree it is a world leader making a global impact.

There is more to come for Israel. Now there are oil and gas reserves just about to impact not only the tiny nation of Israel but the world:

All of this is leading to a culmination of prophetic events all foretold by the Bible.

  • Israel would be restored as a nation as prophesied in Isaiah 11:12 “And He will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel, and will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth “
  • Hebrew would be resurrected as the national language as prophesied in Jeremiah 31:23 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “They shall again use this speech in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I bring back their captivity: ‘The LORD bless you, O home of justice, and mountain of holiness!’
  • Israel would excel in agriculture and technology as prophesied in Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose
  • Nations will turn against Israel and Jerusalem as prophesied in Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
  • Russia will join an Arab coalition and will attack Israel as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39 and this particular attack may be for Israel’s prosperity in food, oil, and gas. The scriptures describe going for Israel’s “booty” and the reference of hooks in the jaws of Russia might relate to famine or food shortages.

Anyway, there it is. The Bible has been totally accurate in all it’s predictions about Israel coming back together as a mighty nation, so with that totally accurate track record, why would we not consider the rest of the end time prophecy? The record is perfect and everything related to Israel’s remarkable blessing is fulfilling what the Bible prophesied from ancient times.

These prophecies are given as signals or warnings to get ready. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your personal savior, accepting Him as the one who took your sin away and accepting Him as the one who gives eternal life is the first thing you need to do. Once having done that, then you need to reach others with this life-forgiving, life-changing message. Please visit the Roman Road at http://prophecydude.org/roman-road/

Let us know—we have people ready to pray for you.

Bank of England forced to cut UK growth forecast yet again

The Bank of England will downgrade Britain’s economic growth forecast this week, confirming that the recovery is stalling as the Government’s austerity measures take their toll.

The central bank is expected to follow the consensus by revising down its figures in its quarterly Inflation Report on Wednesday. It will be the second quarter running that the Bank has lowered its outlook, having already cut its projections in February.

A downgrade is likely to be accompanied by a slight rise in its inflation forecast for the immediate future, analysts said. Combined, the outlook for growth and inflation is likely to point to the Bank leaving rates on hold at 0.5pc until the end of the year – in line with the most recent City projections.

In February, the Bank cut its growth forecast from the 3.27pc predicted in November to 2.6pc. Economists said it “doesn’t have much choice” but to downgrade growth further, though it is likely to remain above the consensus of 1.5pc.

“Given that the Bank was expecting growth of 0.8pc for the first quarter and we got 0.5pc, it doesn’t have much choice but to downgrade growth,” said Hetal Mehta, of Daiwa Capital Markets. “You would expect the profile to shift down somewhat.”

Vicky Pryce, of FTI Consulting, said: “They will downgrade their forecast for growth, especially after the first-quarter figures.”

Kevin Daly, at Goldman Sachs, also confirmed: “For this year I imagine they will downgrade their growth forecast.”

Britain's economic growth forecast

This year’s growth has been progressively downgraded by analysts as more data emerge. In January, the consensus was for 2.1pc and the Office for Budget Responsibility predicted 1.8pc in March. A slowdown in growth in manufacturing and services last week further dented hopes for the recovery.

“This will be a pretty bad year,” Ms. Pryce said. “First of all the recovery hasn’t really taken hold and we’re feeling the impact of cuts. There will be the second year of declines in real incomes.”

She added that the Bank may upgrade its short-term inflation outlook to reflect rising cost pressures but the figure will come down in “later years”.

Mr. Daly said that he believed that over the two-year forecast horizon, the inflation outlook could be lower than in February – and closer to target – as “wages growth has been weaker than expected”.

Mervyn King, the Governor, is likely to say that the £110bn austerity programme is slowing the recovery. However, he remains adamant that the economy needs to be rebalanced away from public spending and towards exports and manufacturing.

For the time being, he warned last week, interest rates need to remain low. “The economic consequences of high-level indebtedness now would become more severe if rates were to rise,” he said. “It is the main reason why interest rates are so low.”

The Bank voted to leave rates on hold at 0.5pc last week and markets do not expect any move before December at the earliest. The Inflation Report is expected to confirm market expectations.
