I have been a student of Church history for some time. I, like many others have noticed a parallel between natural Israel and the Church in the last 100 years. I may not be able to prove this by multiple scriptural texts however there is shown below the idea that Adam was the first natural man and the spiritual man came later, Jesus / Yeshua / יֵשׁוּעַ

  In similar fashion Israel was the natural bride of the Lord and the church being grafted in becomes the spiritual bride.

1 Cor 15:45-48 ,45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

We know that after the destruction of the temple in 70 ad that both the Jews and the church was hunted and persecuted. The dark ages took it toll on both true followers of Jesus and the Jews. After the dark ages came the reformation, and understanding of justification by faith was reintroduced to The church. Layer after layer of truth was rediscovered by the church. At the same time the idea was forming in the hearts of Jewish people to return to their homeland of Israel.

At this point I will loose you if you are a cessationist that is ““the belief that the miraculous gifts such as healing, tongues, prophetic revelation, and supernatural knowledge pertained to the apostolic era only, served a purpose that was unique to the era before the New Testament was complete, and passed from use before the canon of Scripture was closed.”

I believe the gifts are still for today and should be used in accordance with scripture. With this view in mind Theodor (Binyamin Ze’ev) Herzl  founded the Zionist political movement which 50 years later led to return of the Jews to their land Israel. At about the same time revival broke out in Wales and America with pentecostal expression which eventually became corrupt in some cases. Great endeavors to take the gospel to the ends of the earth flowed out of this movement

In 1948 Israel became a nation as Jew’s returned home after 2000 years of exile. At the same time another revival broke out in Canada and spread through out the US and abroad. This movement too became defiled after several years and many distanced themselves from it but not before great advancement was made with taking the Gospel to the four corners of the earth.

In 1967 Israel in the 6 day war expands it territory. At the same time the Jesus People Movement began in 1967

If any one mark clearly identifies them it is their total belief in an awesome, supernatural Jesus Christ, not just a marvelous man who lived 2,000 years ago but a living God who is both Saviour and Judge, the ruler of their destinies. Their lives revolve around the necessity for an intense personal relationship with that Jesus, and the belief that such a relationship should condition every human life. They act as if divine intervention guides their every movement and can be counted on to solve every problem.

1973 Israel in the Yom Kippur War after being attacked overcame and ended up extending her borders to all of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula. At the same time the Charismatic Movement began with Dennis Bennett in Van Nuys, California.

Here we are 2008 the 60 year anniversary of Israel is coming up in May. American President George Bush today January 10th 2008 has called for Israel to return to the pre 1967 war territory / bounderies.

In my recent blog https://riverflowsdown.wordpress.com/2008/01/09/israel-its-borders-should-not-shrink/ I have listed the scriptural evidence for Israel’s borders and warned we must not take part in changing God’s plan. The writing is on the wall, if we force Israel to go down this path, and a peace treaty is signed in May around the 60 year anniversary it will parallel what will happen in the church. We will loose ground if we don’t cry out for mercy. It seems many of the prophetic voices I have respected for years have gone silent about these issues seeing they have made a covenant with the Republican party and have closed their eyes to God’s standard.  I am a conservative republican because of the pro-life platform but the buck stops here for me. I will continue to pray for our leader’s of course, but I will not pretend wrong is right.

It is high time to to cry out for Israel and the Jewish People and that G W hears and listens to Godly counsel. There will be no lasting peace in the middle east outside of the prince of peace Jesus / Yeshua / יֵשׁוּעַ

Iowa the place that dreams come true. Build it and they will come. Build a debate and ask the question “Don’t Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?” The news media can’t pass that one up, they come running from every where. Funny how that question is actually in the heart of most conservative Christians. I know I must have been asked that question 10 times in the last several weeks referencing to the possible beliefs of republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Mike Huckabee’s quote from The New York Times, on December 12, 2007 was  ‘‘Don’t Mormons,’’ he asked in an innocent voice, ‘‘believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?’’

Well, well, what have we here, I know The headlines today offer an apology from Huckabee but before we move on to fast did you see the Church’s official response.

A spokeswoman for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Huckabee’s question is usually raised by those who wish to smear the Mormon faith rather than clarify doctrine. “We believe, as other Christians believe and as Paul wrote, that God is the father of all,” said the spokeswoman, Kim Farah. “That means that all beings were created by God and are his spirit children. Christ, on the other hand, was the only begotten in the flesh and we worship him as the son of God and the savior of mankind. Satan is the exact opposite of who Christ is and what he stands for.”

What does exact opposite of who Christ is actually mean? Unless you understand what they really believe about begotten, that sounds right. In the mid 1980’s I had the privilege to meet Thelma “granny” Geer who was a 4th generation Mormon, and a great-granddaughter of a Mormon pioneer and polygamist John D. Lee, who was a personal bodyguard to Brigham Young. You should check out what She says on the whole matter of rlds beliefs.

The recent TV commercials present Mormonism as just another denomination when in reality it is another Jesus they preach. What Romney believes should have nothing to do with Him being president since George Bush being a member of the secret society skull and bones evidently made no difference to Christians in the last elections. I am being facetious, I do believe it matters there is a demonic spiritual realm and if a person has even suttle ties to it then their discernment is very flawed to say the lest.

OK I know I will get some negative feedback on this but let me say just a word of my why. I have spent much time in Uganda they are a nation that has had much blood shed. They have been a nation also plagued by witchcraft. I have personally seen things that most Americans have no grid for and I would not waste my time telling you its just to far out threre. Several X-witch doctors who have become flollowers of Jesus christ, have said they would bow down to the demonic powers in the US because they operate covertly, hidden and in business suits with lots of money where in African it is in your face and fear based. In the US we don’t believe in any thing spiritual good or bad Whether its God or Lucifer they are just out there some where.

Something to Remember 2 cor 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light

We need discernment in this hour Lucifer is not a sexual bi-product of God, inquiring minds will find out what that means! Good Day
