No one likes to be told that they are no longer the focus – that their time has passed. Think of all the has-been rock stars that make come-back attempts – or, the empires that make last-ditch efforts to rekindle what once was.
But, when God says it’s over…
And, when you say the words Last Days, that really is what you are saying. It’s over, and it’s time for the final scene. And, when I look back over the events that brought us to this point in time, I see that 1967 really was that moment in time, when The End began.

It was All Over in 1967
After I struggled through yesterday’s article – and yes, it was a struggle – I tried to kick back a bit and listen to some interviews, while puttering about on my computer. Since I had profiled an interview by Rick Wiles, on Trunews.com, I thought that I’d check out the next interview. It looked like it would be interesting, and I thought that it might offer an worthwhile counterpoint to what I had written. But…
…I couldn’t finish it.
They Are Not Reading The Bible
I don’t know what’s a matter with Rick, or with the pastor he was interviewing, but one thing is clear:
They are NOT reading their Bible.
If they were reading their Bible, cover-to-cover, like they should, they wouldn’t be so appallingly ignorant of what it says. And yes, I really mean appallingly ignorant.
I like Rick Wiles. I like his fire. I like his dedication. But, he’s completely clueless when it comes to what God is doing with Israel. And, I think that the problem is that he isn’t reading the prophets of the Old Testament. He’s just reading the New Testament. And, that’s just not good enough, because most of the prophecies of the days that we are living in now, come from those prophets.
Get Israel Wrong – Get The Last Days Wrong
If you don’t know the prophecies of the Old Testament, you will NOT be ready for the Last Days. Period. You won’t know what time it is, and that describes Rick.
Earlier this month, I spoke of a verse that was 1,897 years long. That verse is this one:
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. – Luke 21:24
That verse began around February of year 70 and ended on June 7th, 1967.
Throughout those one thousand, eight hundred and ninety seven years, the Gentiles had their way with Jerusalem. It was Gentile law and a Gentile police force that controlled the city. And, the Jews were the chew-toy of every racist and psychopath in the world. They were driven from country to country and treated like second-class citizens, everywhere.
But, then came 1967, and the world turned upside down for the Jewish people. They were no longer the oppressed, but were now the conquerors – not the conquered.
I also find the way that Jesus chose His words, to be interesting. He didn’t focus on the Jews capturing Jerusalem – but of the Gentiles losing it.
Don’t you find that to be significant?
I do. And, I am witness to the fact that the Gentiles do NOT control any part of the Old City of Jerusalem. Not one inch is governed by any law other than Israeli Law. Every centimeter is governed, policed and patrolled by the Jewish State. If you break Israeli Law on the Temple Mount, you go before an Israeli judge and go to an Israeli prison.
But, people like Rick Wiles seem to think otherwise.
Is it because they don’t like the idea that the time of the Gentiles is over?
I don’t know. But, Jesus said it, so I believe it.
And no, Jesus did NOT claim that the Jews would be righteous and holy, walking in truth with God. No, He said that the Gentiles would no longer control Jerusalem.
Israel Cleansed AFTER Entering The Land
Now, for some of you, that isn’t enough evidence, so let me point you to Ezekiel 36. And, it is THIS passage that you need to pay attention to:
For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. – Ezekiel 36:24-25
My hope is that you understand the word then – because THAT word should tell you everything that you need to know. Only AFTER the people of Israel enter the Land of Israel would God cleanse them.
Did you get that?
The order of events is this:
1. Jews enter Land of Israel
2. Jews are made clean
THAT is the order of events.
Are they clean now?
Of course not. Only through Jesus Christ will they be made clean. And the numbers of those who have been made clean are growing.
That’s right. Born-in-Israel, Hebrew-speaking, Jewish Israelis are becoming true followers of Jesus Christ in greater and greater numbers. The growth may seem small now, but one day, it will become an explosion.
But, that explosion will come when God chooses – not us. And, right now, I am more concerned for the Body of Christ.
You see, if you don’t understand Israel, you don’t know what time it is, and it is clear to me that Rick Wiles doesn’t know that we are AT the end – that we are right up against the very last few years of history.
Why do I say that?
Because he routinely entertains the possibility that there are many, many years left before the Lord comes. Yes, he DOES often indicate that the time is short, but it is clear that he doesn’t know for sure.
The Last Generation
Of course, this is perfectly understandable when you don’t understand the significance of Luke 21:24, and this verse:
So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. – Luke 21:31-32
When you understand that those two passages fit together, hand-in-glove, you understand that the amount of time that we have left is vanishingly small. And, Rick doesn’t get it.
Furthermore, I see something interesting.
Did you know that the Petrodollar did not arise until AFTER 1967?
Did you know that our current view of Israel as a regional power didn’t happen until AFTER 1967?
Did you know that it was almost exactly 40 years AFTER June 7th, 1967 that the Financial Crisis of 2007 began?
That last one is interesting. If there is any one single event that will have launched us into the coming New World Order, it will have been THAT crisis. It’s almost as if God had been giving us forty years to put our house in order, before putting the hammer down – on us.
And no, there are no ‘coincidences’. I don’t do ‘coincidence theory’, and you shouldn’t, either.
Distorting The Bible
Furthermore, I’ve noticed something important. When you distort one part of the Bible, it distorts everything else. It makes you blind to what should be obvious.
And, such blindness is painful to listen to – as well as dangerous.
People like Rick Wiles are actually standing in opposition to what God is doing – a very, very dangerous thing to do.
You may not like what the Israelis are doing. That’s your choice.
But, to speak against the work of God?
You are in serious trouble if you do that. Very serious.
Repent And Get On Board With God
So, if you find yourself in such a position, repent and recover yourself. If you don’t want to embrace the work of God in Israel, that’s your choice – although, I would wonder at how true your love of the Lord is. But, at the very least, don’t resist God.
Resisting God never ends well.
But, don’t just stop at the idea of not resisting God. Go beyond that and walk WITH God. It is a far, far better thing to get on board with God, and be a part of what the Lord is doing.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
