Brick For Stone * Updated


Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, ‘Come let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone,’ and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:1-4

I want to build on something that came from the link I provided in my last post. Hopefully, you read it all the way through. One of the parts that impacted me the most was the part about the bricks and stone and how it relates to social distancing as one of the requirements that are currently being placed on us for supposed safety from the Covid 19 virus. I hope you were able to glean something from the article. As is often the case, I may or may not agree with every point in material I share with you but as one wise person put it “eat the meat and spit out the bones”. I like that expression and consider it sage advice. So with that being said, I give credit to the writer for getting my wheels turning on this. Some of what I say may dovetail with what they already said and hopefully I will be able to interject a few thoughts of my own.

I don’t think I really understood the difference between brick and stone and why it could possibly matter to God until reading the aforementioned article. If you already do, then kudos to you, you’re definitely way ahead of me. In our opening scripture at the top of the page we see the builders of the tower of Babel choosing to use brick of their own making rather than stone.

Now this is important because brick is made from already existing substances while rock is part of creation itself. Man can make faux rocks but man cannot make rock. Bricks are uniform and while they make good building material no singular brick is more important or special than the other while rocks on the other hand are unique in color, size and shape. When one is using them to build only the right rock will do. Now I understand more fully why God commanded that his altar be made from uncut stones.

“If you make an altar of stone for Me, you must not build it with stones shaped by tools, for if you use a chisel on it, you will defile it.” Exodus 20:25

It’s interesting that via computer the earth has essentially returned to the tower of Babel state where the people are all of one language. The tower in the process of being re-built is not one of brick and mortar but one of flesh and blood. Human “bricks” (one indistinct from the other) that will make up the new world order in the kingdom of the anti-Christ. And I agree per the article in my last post that social distancing and isolation are part of the process in breaking down ones individuality.

One of the things that has been on my mind lately is the move towards acceptance of transgender or non-binary individuals particularly among our youth. This has become so prevalent that it is actually being applauded and encouraged among young people. Lets look at some definitions.

Transgender – Denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex.

Non-binary – Also, known as gender fluid – Individuals who may experience a gender identity that is neither exclusively male or female or is in between or beyond both genders. Agender is a similarly related term which means without gender, third gender or something else entirely.

It is my contention that we are seeing a concerted effort to mold humanity into the preferred vessels of the NWO. Like bricks, not one will be more special than the other. Interchangeable. If one is lost, no big deal; there is another one to replace it. Sexless, drone worker bees with no other purpose than to serve the elite and their master (the Anti-Christ). Those of us too old or stubborn to conform will most likely be eliminated. But in God’s eyes, we are not bricks but rather called to be living stones in Christ. Special, unique and valuable.

My husband and I have been building a rock wall in our yard. And I can tell you it is sometimes a chore to find the right rock. Because they have to fit together just so not any rock will do. It takes a special rock. And we hunt till we find it.

The Bible says that Jesus is the chief cornerstone. Not the chief brick! And we as believers are joined to him as living stones.

“As you come to him, the living Stone — rejected by men, but chosen by God and precious to him–. you also, like living stones, are being built in to a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifice acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” 1 Peter 2:4,5

As Christians we must be aware of this diabolical plan. The enemy is striking against God at the most basic (and important) level.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

How wonderful that God has created us not only in his image but with purpose. Stones of his making and choosing to be used (as he sees fit) by virtue of their own unique talent and gifts.

But our young people are being pushed in another direction. Seeking purpose and acceptance they are easy prey for those who seek to use them. Encouraged, applauded and celebrated they often fall victim to pressure by those who lead them to believe they are making an admirable choice. Confusion over ones identity particularly when it comes to gender is the ultimate in abuse. Once a person has lost all sense of self they are easy to manipulate and control.

There is so much deception going on right now. We cannot afford to sleep where these things are concerned. Its easy to become disgusted; even angry when we see these kinds of individuals and some of the behavior they exhibit. Therefore it is more important than ever to intercede in prayer for them. They are haplessly being used and many of them have been abandoned to secular thinking through out their entire lives. They have no foundation. And while they have not realized it yet – (but will) – bricks are just not that special. I weep for them.

Covid 19 Unmasked


“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known”. Luke 12:2

For the last few weeks, we have been hammered from all sides about wearing masks, washing hands, social distancing and isolating at home. And almost everyone has an opinion on this one way or the other. It has struck me as odd that it hardly matters what one covers their mouth with just as long as it is covered. One can argue the effectiveness of such measures but it becomes laughable when just about anything will do. Hence, the observation that this is less about stopping the virus than it is about conforming to the accepted narrative.

I read an excellent piece yesterday that I want to share here. It looks at all of these things (mask wearing, hand washing, social distancing and isolating) in the context of occult ritual and I have to tell you it was very compelling – particularly, the mask and social distancing part. After reading this, I really don’t know if I can put on a mask again. H/t to friend Steve Coerper for sharing this with me and sending me the link.

It’s a little lengthy but an important read that I think you will find very interesting. I do hope you will take the time to read it. Click here.

I am also working on something else that I would like to share but will place it in another post so as not to take away from the importance of this one.

The deception is great. We must be alert and aware of what God is showing us. Eyes wide shut (refusing to believe what is obvious) should never apply to us as Christians. The devil is here to kill, steal, destroy and lie. We are being played but we have God’s word and the Holy Spirit to guide and direct us. Please share with anyone you think would be interested in hearing the truth.

And, as always –

The Strawberry Moon Eclipse * Updated


“Then they called Rebekah, and said unto her, “Will you go with this man?” And she said “I will go”. Genesis 24:58

If you’re like me there has been so much bad news lately that it is easy to forget the good news. In fact, the good news can seem dwarfed or eclipsed by all that is going on but in fact it is the opposite. Jesus, told us “when you see these things beginning to come to pass lift up your heads, your redemption draws nigh” (Luke 21:28). Can there be any further doubt the time is now?

I was looking at the news this morning and came across an article from Accuweather about tonight’s Strawberry Moon. It is the first full moon of the meteorological summer which began June 1. Not to be confused with the astrological summer which begins on the solstice on June 20. This June full moon has many names but is most commonly known in North America as the Strawberry Moon. Apparently this name originated with the Algonquin tribes who knew it as a signal to gather the ripening fruit of wild strawberries. (Old Farmers Almanac). Per the Accuweather article:

“In Europe, June’s full moon is called the Mead Moon, the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon”

As June was traditionally a month for marriages the word Honeymoon was coined and is used to this day.

In addition to the Strawberry Moon part of the world will witness a penumbral eclipse which is described this way:
On Friday, the moon will pass through only part of the Earth’s outer shadow, known as the penumbra, and will miss the darker inner shadow, known as the umbra. As a result, only one area of the moon will go dark.

And because the effect is subtle if you don’t know what you are looking for you could miss it.


The eclipse will be visible in Australia, Asia, Europe and Africa although the Strawberry Moon will be visible here in North America as well – just minus the eclipse as the eclipse will end before it rises over the Americas.

Today is also the anniversary of the six day war in 1967. Greatly outnumbered in a David vs Goliath situation Israel won the victory over her enemies when without God’s help it would certainly have not been possible. In fact, by June 7 (two days later) the old city of Jerusalem was liberated and on June 10th the war was over. * See article by TW Tramm below that suggests Pentecost may actually be this week end which would correspond to the June 7th date of the six day war.

We live in a time when the forces of evil seem to be gaining the upper hand. But there is a game changer coming. The bride is ready to leave and like Rebekah who saw her bridegroom from afar – we have said, “I will go”.

* Something you might find of interest in relation to this weekend.

A Nation Divided *Revised

“A nation divided against itself shall not stand” Matthew 12:25

The last few days and months have tried many of us in ways we could probably never have imagined. It’s as if all the stops have been pulled out. And whatever restraining force is left in the world is being tested to the point of breaking.

When I saw this photo from June 2, 2020 my heart just stopped. To see the flag so graphically ripped in two is just heart dropping. Leaving even the most hardened skeptic to ponder its possible meaning.

This flag, the world’s largest free flying flag measuring 70′ x 140′ and weighing 340 pounds was split in half during a severe thunderstorm in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on June 2. Changed out about every 140 days this particular flag had been in place 120 days when this incident occurred. A number which is significant as many of you will remember in relation to the flood of Genesis. It is also owned by the Acuity Insurance Company. A word which means sharpness,or keenness of thought, vision or hearing. Something that seems to be lacking these days.

In my opinion, this does not bode well for the nation (and by extension the world) as these protests are growing internationally and will almost certainly be used against Israel.

Its interesting that the name Sheboygan means among other things, “a noise underground”. From the Wisconsin Historical Society:

“Sheboygan County takes its name from a river emptying into Lake Michigan. Two meanings have been assigned to this word: “a noise underground,” and “river disappearing underground” — Wis. Hist. Colls., i, p. 17, and Hist. No. Wis., p. 967; and “a perforated object such as a pipe-stem, or hollow bone” — Wis. Hist. Colls., iii, p. 337; xii, p. 397″.

A “noise underground” reminds me of the rumble of an earthquake which precedes a great shaking. When I was living in Hawaii we had a 6.7 earthquake. Interesting, as I heard it before I felt it. It sounded like a freight train coming. It was a roar. Makes me think of the launch of Space x Crew Dragon on May 30th with its stowaway toy Dinosaur named Tremor which was discovered the next day.

Add to that a lunar eclipse over our country on the fourth of July, our nation’s 244th birthday and that’s when things really get interesting.

Consider this – on July 4th it will have been 40 days since the murder of George Floyd. 40 days. A number well known for its association with “testing”.  And, boy are we being tested right now!

That’s a lot of 4’s. July 4th, 40 days and 244th birthday. And because I find numbers and dates interesting, I like to look. History often repeats itself and it certainly does when it comes to some of God’s numbers.

So, what does the number 4 mean Biblically? It’s the number of completeness. 

But that same number doubled is 44 slightly different –

“The number 44 is rooted in the number 4, which is the number of creation, particularly the earth. But the four is doubled, almost as if to illustrate to us the contention between two people who each have the desire to be chosen to rule or inherit the earth”. 

Keep in mind Barack Obama was 44th President of the United States. And one whose Presidency in the minds of many was marked by division which is being played out even as we speak. Who will rule? Which direction are we going?

Many of us have warned against the Trump peace plan which will effectively divide Israel. With a start date of July 1, 2020 which is Tammuz 9 on the Hebrew calendar I cannot think of a worse date on which to start. For those of you who may not know Tammuz 9 is one of the most ominous days in Jewish history as it was the date the walls of Jerusalem were breached by Nebuchadnezzars army in 586 BCE.

The other ominous date is July 9 (Tammuz 17) on the Hebrew calendar.  Tammuz 17 is the day the walls of Jerusalem were breached by the Roman army before the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD. Av 9 is July 30th this year. All dates that might prove to be of interest in the very near future.

Shifting gears somewhat. I personally am beginning to believe that the virus was Stage 1 of a very carefully thought out plan. Stage 2 is currently in progress. Stage 3 is just around the corner. So, what is next???

The Stuff of Dreams –

In February 2008, I had a graphic dream which had to do with the word Wisconsin. In this dream, I received a phone call from a Wisconsin number instructing me too “look” out my window. I was also greeted with the cryptic word, “doomsday“. I did as requested and looked out the window where I could see a mushroom like cloud forming over the south part of the Island of Oahu where I was living at the time. I was horrified and recognized that this was a nuclear type explosion over an area which included Pearl Harbor. The dream was so vivid that I took the time to write it down and eventually wrote about it extensively a few years later in a series of posts titled “Echoes of Paradise Lost”.

Then several years later, I received another dream which included the word Wisconsin. In this dream I was in the 2nd story of a house. I was going about my business  putting away dishes and stuff when suddenly I was aware that people were trying to break into the house by climbing up on ladders. I could see them through the windows. Then  suddenly they were blown down to the ground where they appeared to fall as if made of straw.  I looked down and saw a Newspaper. The word Wisconsin was prominently displayed in the headline. I asked, “what does this mean?” and was “told” that I had been given “three” words. “What three words?” I asked. But no answer was given.

I have never quite understood these dreams and have only now decided that two of the three words given were most likely Wisconsin and doomsday. I initially thought the dream was specific to Hawaii but believe now it is a Pearl Harbor type event that will take place sometime in the near future that somehow includes the word Wisconsin. And this may well indeed be Stage 3. Chaos and fear need to be paramount before the coming world leader will be accepted. The second story of the house could represent the second hundred years of our nation. Those trying to break into the house (the nation) will be blown down like straw. But Stage two with its rioting and looting was small potatoes. Its Stage 3 (nuclear explosion) that will rock the nation to its core.

I’m very concerned for the days ahead. Our country is in great peril and most likely under judgment (and rightfully so) for our many national sins. I pray that if you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior that you will not hesitate to do so now. Jesus, is our only hope. Life most certainly from this day forward will never be the same.

An Ominous Sign

Vultures spotted over Manhattan Friday April 17, 2020

As I noted in my last post New York has been on the fast track to judgment by inviting demonic entities into the heart of the city since at least 2010 while rejecting God and doubling down on baby killing at the same time. Interesting that vultures were spotted over Manhattan on Friday following Governor Cuomos boast on Monday April 13 that the declining virus numbers were a result “not of God” or faith but rather by the measures implemented by the government. From an article in The Christian Post –

“As governor of the state that has been by far the most affected by the pandemic, Cuomo stressed that the number of new cases is down “because we brought the number down…. God did not do that. Faith did not do that. Destiny did not do that,” he stressed. “A lot of pain and suffering did that.”

Hmmmm …you don’t say.

Bible had this to say about vultures. –

“In addition to a wake of vultures being a symbol of God’s judgment of shame, a gathering of vultures also indicates a diseased spiritual condition. In Revelation 18:2, Babylon the Great is described as being “a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird.

Pardon me, but if the shoe fits …. a diseased spiritual condition indeed!

You can read the story about the vultures here.

I’d like to draw your attention to two posts by my friend William at The End Times Forecaster which you may find of interest. One is titled – “Beware the Fire and Blood Sacrifice to the Beast which you can read here –

And, “Not Everyone is Coming to the Future: Gotham 2020. Which you can also read here –

And check this out. A huge flaming red spiral over Cambridge, England on April 15.

I don’t quite know what to make of this but you can read the story here. Very strange indeed! Signs in the heavens.

Thank you once again for joining me at Cindy By The Sea – Heaven Bound. How much longer God will refrain from his righteous judgment on this nation and New York in particular I don’t know. The signs don’t look good. Each day is a new opportunity for mercy and repentance. Pray that those who do not yet know Jesus in a personal and saving way soon will. And as always,

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

New York, New York …What Have You Done? *Updated

Hindu Goddess Kali Empire State Building August 15, 2015

“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird”. Revelation 18:2

Without a doubt New York is getting hit the hardest by the Corona virus. And the situation by all accounts is getting more grim by the day. And while their dilemma (along with the rest of the country) is heart wrenching we look back on a few things in the recent history of the state and more specifically the city and have to ask, in all honesty …what were you thinking? It’s kind of like people who play with Ouija boards and seances. Once you call forth these entities it is very difficult (aside from the blood of Jesus) to ever get rid of them again. And New York as you will see has been courting disaster rather systematically from at least 2010 by calling up demonic spirits who just happen to match their political agendas. All in the name of cultural “expression” and “progression” .. of course.

Let’s look at a few things.

March 23, 2010 – As quoted by … “25-foot (8m) tall, 7-ton replica statue of the Egyptian god Anubis travels by barge past the Statue of Liberty on March 23, in New York harbor, in advance of the National Geographic exhibition’s Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs at Discovery Times Square Exposition. Mar 31, 2010″.

Anubis, god of the dead

Anubis has been described as the god of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs, and the Underworld.


June 4, 2012 – President Obama signs in red ink his pledge to come back stronger following the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Here he vows “We remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger”. No humility just a continued defiance from the man who ran his presidential campaign on the promise of “change”.

Here he can be seen signing one of the final steel beams to be installed as part of the framework of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s One World Trade Center site in New York, N.Y., June 14, 2012. First Lady Michelle Obama, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also signed the beam.


August 12, 2015 – The image of the goddess Kali was projected on to the Empire State Building as part of a display to bring awareness to endangered species. Interesting choice as Kali is a goddess of destruction.

“Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time, and doomsday and is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure and symbolic of motherly-love.” Ancient History Encyclopedia


September 19, 2016 – A replica from the Temple of Baal is erected in New York City. Baal was a Canaanite god to whom babies were often sacrificed. The original arch was destroyed by ISIS the previous year. Yet for its “architectural value” it was reconstructed.

Arch of Baal


January 23, 2019 –The Empire State Building is lit up in pink in honor of the signing of the Reproductive Health Act which allows abortions after 24 weeks and up to birth.

Empire State Building

Officials smile broadly as the “Reproductuve Health Act” is signed. But no one is smiling now.

I dont know about you but I see a common thread of death, defiance and destruction. As my daughter Seven Stars so succinctly phrased it –

“Sin brings destruction of it’s own … but fools openly and boastfully invite it”

I could also add to this list the Empire State Building lit up in Rainbow colors in celebration of gay marriage.

*A grim assessment of the current situation in New York. They need our prayers.

If you can think of anything I’ve missed that you would like to add feel free to do so in the comments section. …which hopefully is working.

*Sorry, the comments section is again not working. On my settings they are turned on but still do not appear on the post. Until I get this figured out please attach any comment to the Passover and Covid-19 post. Thanks.

No Where To Hide – *Updated x 2 – 3/29/20 and ** 3/30/20

Night before last I had a dream that started with what appeared to be two portals in the sky. I watched in fascination as the portals became funnel like in appearance with short broad tails. The tails looked like an upside down periscope and were flexible in their ability to peer about and move in any direction. At this point I became terrified and hid beneath my bed as I realized these things were in a searching mode and I did not want to be seen.

As I lay beneath my bed the room became supercharged with some kind of energy and I could see some thing like short rods moving rapidly to and fro within what I perceived to be an energy field. The rods were almost like short bursts of light bluish in color which made them visible as they darted back and forth in every direction. The next thing I knew I was loading boxes of food on to trucks under the direction of some kind of robotic entities.

Strange, I agree.

I was struck by the oddity of the dream and initially passed it off as nothing but decided to pass it by my daughters anyway to see what they thought. To my surprise, they immediately thought it was significant.

The Corona virus (in their opinion) is going to lead us into a program of progressive surveillance. Whether it be drones or satellite imagery of some kind we are/will be watched and tracked. The energy field I saw is some kind of technology that will be useful in manipulating people into willing subjects of the state even as our daily needs and resources are stripped away from us. Whether these are actual “robots” over seeing this process or people acting robotically as servants of the state. I don’t know.

This dream really came out of the blue as I had not been reading or thinking about anything like this. All I can say is that we live in unprecedented times and how this is all going to play out is anyone’s guess. Only God knows for sure. It is my opinion that this is certainly not going to blow over in a few weeks or months but is in fact the groundwork for what the Bible refers to as the end of days. And friends, it’s not coming. It’s already here.

* I read a post this morning about the dangers of 5G and how it could be used. I decided to Google a 5 G image and imagine my surprise when this image came up …nearly identical to my dream.

Do you see the light infused “rods” moving about? Well, that’s it! I don’t know much about 5 G but this was definitely the image of my dream. Odd too how they emanate from a portal shaped opening.

**I came across this video this morning and found it so interesting as it confirmed some of the information from my dream. Check it out.

Watch “THE DANGERS OF A 5G WORLD: Why 5G Will Be Bad And How There Will Be No Way To Escape It | David Icke” on YouTube

Passover and Covid-19

“On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn — both men and animals — and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” Exodus 12:12-13

I heard someone remark recently how “ironic it was that the plague had cancelled Passover.” Now of course this was tongue in cheek as Passover could never really be cancelled even if another Seder was never held but was rather commemtary on the restriction against large groups meeting which would mean they would not be able to host their annual Seder that generally seats about 400 people.

But then I heard today that the Sanhedrin in Israel may do just that. Perhaps not cancel but postpone. They are apparently being petitioned to declare this a leap year which would delay Passover (or perhaps change the date, I should say) as they feel the current restrictions (due to the virus) would not give people adequate time to prepare properly. In other words, the plague has postponed Passover. How strange is that?

I’m thinking given the current situation maybe they ought to consider simplifying things by going back to the Exodus 12 instructions. They didn’t have a lot of time to prepare then either. Right?

Isn’t it interesting how this virus has changed so many things. Let’s do a run down of some of them.

1- The entire world is pretty much on the same page right now. This is unprecedented. Cities all over the planet grinding to a halt. The conversation in my home is the same as that of my neighbors – is the same as those across town – is the same as across the country. And around the world. We are all talking about one subject. The virus.

2- God is collectively silencing the idols of our time with the closure of movies, concerts, restaurants and bars, theater, sporting events, recreation, shopping and travel for pleasure to places like Las Vegas just to mention a few. And abortion clinics are finally being closed.

3- Churches are being moved back to home settings reminding us that it is not the building that is the church but rather “we” who are the church. As the scripture says: “Wherever two or three are gathered.” The “seeker friendly” Church with its programs and coffee bars is perhaps being stripped of the extraneous stuff and being returned to the simplicity of its roots.

4- Passover will be observed primarily in homes again while the plague rages outside. Perhaps this year we will identify a little more closely with those huddled in homes during that first Passover with only the blood on the door standing between them and the angel of death.

5- Israel is apparently closing their doors to new arrivals. I have not been able to confirm this entirely but believe it would be significant. The law of return goes back to July 5, 1950 which would make it 70 years as of this July. If Israel is deemed to be fully mature at this time can the fullness of the Gentiles be far behind? I think not.

6- Because of the virus Israel will be closed for Shabbat perhaps more fully than at any other time in their recent history.

I think the above is sufficient to demonstrate that we are living in unprecedented times and we are first hand witnesses to the final stages of God’s great redemptive plan. I’ll include a couple of links below that relate to my list. I apologize that the comments section was closed on my last two posts. I’m not sure how that happened and could not rectify it once the post was published. I do look forward to hearing from you and joyfully look forward to the things you have to share.

FYI – On some of these links a picture pops up seconds after opening. Just continue to scroll down to access post.

A long read but if you get down to the part about the almonds I think you will find it very interesting.

Silencing The Noisy Din

Broadway closed due to Corona virus

We have entered into what I believe to be a unique period in history. A time when the whole world is at a virtual standstill. Every one on the same page at the same time more or less. Major cities as well as small hamlets have become virtual ghost towns with people like mice venturing out only when necessary in search of something to eat.

I like the photo above for demonstrating the degree to which we are bombarded with constant destraction in our lives. Even without sound it virtually shouts at us for attention. And because of this very few find opportunity for real quietness in their day. Between jobs, family and recreation/entertainment there simply isn’t enough time. At least that is what we think. But circumstances have changed all that and now like it or not we have been forced to slow down.

My husband mentioned to me earlier today that One For Israel has been overwhelmed lately with inquiries; and that’s a good thing. “One For Israel” is a Messianic Ministry primarily aimed at reaching Jewish people for the Messiah, Jesus. Evidently while confined at home some people are using the time for searching the web and many of them out of boredom, curiosity or fear are looking to Christian Ministries and organizations for answers. I’m sure One for Israel is not the only one receiving such inquiries. And I think that God in his mercy has provided a short window of time for doing just that.

There is a verse in Jeremiah that speaks of this.

The sound of a cry comes from Babylon, the sound of a great destruction from the land of the Babylonians. The Lord will destroy Babylon: he will silence her noisy din.” Jeremiah 51:55

A din is a loud, unpleasant and unwelcome noise, clamor or clatter. And God is going to silence it. Why? Because it has been keeping people from hearing him.

Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51 address the destruction of Babylon. It is fascinating to read and one can see why there are many who believe these chapters speak to a future Babylon or Babylonian system (America/Mystery Babylon) and not just the historical one.

Going back to my opening paragraph I can’t begin to stress enough the uniqueness of the time in which we are now living. I can think of no other time in history when the whole world was basically on the same page at the same time. Unprecedented! And God is using it for his glory!

Right now we need to be praising God and thanking him for this window of opportunity. I do believe it will be short. As far as this earthly life is concerned I see no good ending to the situation in which we are in. When this is over (in my opinion) life as we know it will be dramatically altered with a global population ready and willing to accept a charismatic new leader who will fearlessly lead them forward into a new world order. Civil unrest and chaos on a mass level will be the force that drives it and people will not only welcome, but embrace it when its time.

This is the point to which we are moving. A swift moving stream catching up everyone (and everything) in its path. An avalanche rumbling down a mountainside uprooting boulders and flattening trees only to gather more momentum as it goes. This is the path the world is on. Its dangerous and its destructive. It will promise life but deliver death. The only place of safety is in Jesus. Please, if you haven’t done so already, trust him today.

Encouraging Words

From my garden yesterday

I just read this post by T.W. Tramm and wanted to share it with you. Beautifully written it immediately brighted my spirits.


MARCH 19 marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

From this day forward, the longer and warmer days will have a transforming effect on Nature: Grass will sprout and thicken; trees and shrubs will bud and send forth new growth; birds will lay their eggs; mammals will give birth; animals will shed winter coats; and caterpillars will transform into butterflies.

The world around us, which had seemed “dead” during the long cold winter, will come to life!

Knowing that God, the Author of Nature, is consistent and works to patterns, it’s not surprising that spring is a time of new beginnings in Scripture as well.

Biblically, spring is when—

• The New Year begins (Ex. 12: 1, 2).

• The harvest season begins (Lev. 23:9-14).

• Principal figures such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and King David are born.

• God’s people are liberated from captivity (Ex. 12; Ez. 7; Neh. 2).

• God’s people are married or betrothed (Ex. 19; Ruth; Acts 2).

• Decrees are issued (Ez. 7; Neh. 2).

• Kings go forth to battle (2 Sam. 11:1).

• The fig tree puts forth leaves (Matt. 24:32).

• The Nation of Israel is born and reborn (Exodus/1948).

• The trumpet of God is sounded (Ex. 19: 16, 19, 20).

• Resurrection and ascension occur (Matt. 27:51-53).

• Dispensational change (Law/Grace) occurs (Ex. 20; Acts 2).

Last but not least, spring is when the shepherd comes to gather and spirit away his beloved Shulammite maid in the Song of Solomon:

“The winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come … Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!” (Song 2:11-13).

And so, in both Nature and Scripture, spring is a time of new beginnings, birth, rebirth, marriage, redemption, and transformation.

What do these themes have in common?

They each describe the awesome and much anticipated event we call the Rapture:

• The Rapture is a “new beginning” as we will acquire new incorruptible bodies (1 Cor. 15:53).

• The Rapture is like a “birth” as we will be born into the Kingdom of Heaven (1 John 3:2).

• The Rapture is a “wedding” between the Church and God (Matt. 25).

• The Rapture is a time of “redemption” for our physical bodies (Rom. 8:23; Eph. 1:13, 14).

• The Rapture is a “transformation” that occurs in the twinkling of an eye (1 Cor. 15:52).

One of God’s main attributes is that He is consistent and works to patterns (Heb. 13:8; Ecc. 1:9). Seeing how spring embodies the types and themes we associate with the Rapture, it’s reasonable to speculate that the catching away could occur during the spring of some year.

Could 2020 be the year?

Only God knows.

Nonetheless, as the hopeful bride, we’re expected to—

• Know the signs (Luke 12:55, 56; 21:25-32).

• Discern the general timeframe (Heb. 10:25; 1 Thess. 5:1-5).

• Be watching when He appears (Matt. 24:42, 46; Luke 21:28).

Regardless of the season, the dramatic ramping up of “birth pains” is a sign that Jesus’ return is near, “right at the door” (Matt. 24:8, 33).

Therefore, let us not sleep as others do, but let us watch.

*Biblical definition of the seasons:

While calendars customarily divide the year into four seasons—spring, summer, fall, and winter—the Bible mentions only two main seasons, summer and winter: “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease” (Gen. 8:22). “It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter” (Ps. 74:17). Biblically, summer begins at the vernal equinox in March (19-21) and ends at the autumnal equinox in September (21-24). Winter runs the opposite, beginning in September and ending in March. Therefore, to be precise, spring is not a distinct season but, rather, the first part of the summer. Likewise, autumn is not a distinct season but, rather, the first part of winter. The June and December solstices, marking the beginning of summer and winter on our calendars, actually represent the midpoint of the respective seasons.

*In 2020, spring begins March 19 and ends June 20. Summer begins June 20 and ends September 22.
