So, what will satan do now? With war in the Middle East escalating every day, what do you think satan has in mind?
While I have no doubts that satan reads and ponders Scripture, he is trying to do it without that aid, assistance, and Devine guidance of the Holy Spirit. Therefore he is bound to make some serious mistakes. And example of his mistakes is that he thinks that if he can get rid of all the Jews worldwide he can interfere with God's prophecy of having a 144,000 male Jewish virgins as evangelist during tribulation.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb (Jesus) stood on the mount Zion, and with Him a hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins.
These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. (Revelation 14:1-5 ACP/KJV)
So, who are these 144,000?
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb". (Revelation 7:4-10 ACP/KJV)
So, satan figures that if he destroys the Jews off the face of the earth God will not be able to have His 144,000 male, virgin, Jewish evangelist during the tribulation. Problem is that satan reads Scripture the way the unsaved read Scripture. For you see, Scripture tells us very clearly that God can raise up those 144,000 from the stones lying around by the roadside.
And they brought him (the colt who had never been ridden) to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as He went, they spread their clothes in the way. And when He was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; saying, "Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest."
And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, "Master, rebuke Thy disciples." And Jesus answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. (Luke 19:35-40 ACP/KJV)
So you see, if satan were successful in destroying every last Jew from off the face of the earth, all that would happen is that Jesus would raise up 144,000 stones and change them into 144,000 male virgin Jewish evangelist. It would not be as if the Lord doesn't have experience in changing dirt into man, And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Ge 2:7)
So, taking today's worldly circumstances into account, what do you think satan will try to do next to upset God's prophetic applecart? Remember how in order to keep Christ from fulfilling all of Scripture satan tried to have Him beat to death instead of dying on the cross? So what oh what will satan try now?
A little tip off came from the Drudgereport a few days back, seems as if one of satan's big time lackeys, the head satan worshiper of Iran, wrote a note to the Germans trying to get them to join with Iran and attack Israel. My guess is that satan will try and get Putin to attack Israel, for if it is not time to Rapture His church, Israel may not be protected supernaturally from a Russian attack.
Now for any of you who do not know what I'm referring to by making reference to a Russian attack, go ask your Pastor for the Scripture that proves that Russia does indeed attack Israel and is supernaturally protected just about the same instant we are Raptured.
Let me close by reminding you that Our Christ, not satan will decide the timing of the Rapture. And no matter what satan does, all Scripture will be fulfilled.
Lord, take a look at our garden, don't you think this would be a good time to rapture us? If not us, how about all the mosquitos in my back yard? I've got days of weeding there Lord and every mosquito in Maine seems to have found a home there.
Lord, please keep my wife, son and granddaughter safe while I'm away, amen.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
