    Micah 7:15 SHOW US MIRACLES AS IN THE DAYS OF EGYPT
    Isaiah 43:19-21 I am about to do something new, can you see it? I am making roads in the desert and streams in the wasteland, for My people that I have chosen and they will praise Me.
    2 Samuel 7:10 I shall assign a place for My people, I will settle them there, never to be disturbed again.
    Isaiah 40:11 He tends His flock like a shepherd. He carries the lambs and gently leads those who have young.
    Isaiah 58:11 The Lord will guide you always, He will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land, strengthen you like a never failing spring.
    Ezekiel 34:25-31 I shall make a covenant with My people to ensure peace and prosperity...... they are the flock that I feed and I am your God.
    Isaiah 49:9-11 I said to the captives – go free. There will be pasture on every hill, they will not hunger or thirst, the heat of the sun will not distress them for the One who loves them will guide them.

    Isaiah 51:3 The Lord will surely comfort Zion. The deserts will become as Eden, like the garden of the Lord. There will be joy and gladness, thanksgiving and songs of praise.
    Jeremiah 3:15 I will give you leaders after My own heart, they will lead you with knowledge and understanding. Bible refs- KJV, NIV, REB. Some verses abridged.

    My people; The Lord’s chosen ones, His elect; the people of God. Who are they exactly?

    New Testament teaching is clear, the ethnic people that He originally chose rejected Jesus, so He rejected them; therefore the Kingdom is taken from them and given to another people. Matthew 21:43 None of these prophesies mention Israel.

    Those new people are described in Revelation 5:9-10, as those bought by the blood of Jesus and they come from every race, nation and language. Isaiah 66:18b They are all the born again Christian believers. 1 Peter 2:9-10

    The Lord will guide His people; Isaiah 35:1-10 describes the ‘highway’, the Lord will provide for them. Isaiah 49:9-13, Psalms 68:7-10, Zechariah 8:7-8

    I will give you leaders; This proves that the gathering and settling of all the faithful Christians into all of the holy Land, will happen before Jesus Returns. Jeremiah 30:21, Hosea 1:11

    sun scorched Land; This refers to the fiery Day of the Lord’s wrath, which will clear and cleanse the entire holy Land. Deuteronomy 32:34-43, Zephaniah 1:14-18, 2 Peter 3:7, Revelation 6:12-17 Enabling this great Second Exodus of the Lord’s people into His Land, where they will, at last, be the people God always wanted there.

    they will praise Me; God’s witnesses, every faithful Christian, Isaiah 43:10, John 15:27 and His Light to the nations. Isaiah 49:8, Matthew 5:14-16

    Sure they are!
    Doesn't 'people from every race, nation and language', include them?

    But as Paul makes clear: Only a remnant of Israel will be saved. Romans 9:27

    Isaiah 51:9-10 Awake, Awake! Arm of the Lord, show Your strength! Awake as You did in days of old, how You defeated the enemies in ancient times, then how You made a path through the sea for Your people.

    Awake now; Lord, bring on Your judgement against the enemies that now threaten the Holy Land. Act again now, as You did in times past to save Your people and to establish them once again in the Land.


    Isaiah 51:12-13 & 15 Why be worried and fearful of what may happen, of threats from oppressors and of the Lord’s wrath that makes the seas roar?

    The Lord’s wrath....This is the many prophesied Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath, an event described by the prophets as an explosion of the sun: a terrible punishment by fire that will affect the whole earth. One result of this CME hit, will be tremendous ocean movement, Jeremiah 51:42, ‘that makes the seas roar’, Luke 21:25, causing gigantic tsunamis. This soon to occur, blast of superheated cosmic particles will mainly strike the Middle East region, Zephaniah 2:4-5, fulfilling all the prophecies that say how the Lord will clear and cleanse His Land. Isaiah 33:10-12, Deuteronomy 32:43


    Isaiah 51:17-20 Get up now My people, you have drunk the cup of the Lord’s wrath, a double disaster has struck you; havoc and ruin and who can console you? Of all the sons borne to you, there is no one to guide the people, they have all been overcome by the wrath and terrible rebuke of the Lord.

    Isaiah 51:21-23 Therefore, listen to this in your affliction, you that are drunk, but not with wine. Thus says the Lord your God: I will plead My people’s cause and take from you the cup of wrath, I will hand it to the enemies, who say: Let us walk over you, we will flatten you to the ground like a road for us to trample on.

    Isaiah 51:14, 16 & 11 My people, will soon be set free, they will not be confined, they will not lack food. I keep you covered under the shelter of My hand and I put My Words in your mouth. The Lord’s people, now in exile, will come back and enter Zion with shouts of triumph. Joy will come upon them, while suffering and sorrow flee away. Isaiah 62:10-12 Ref: REB. Some verses condensed.

    Of the true descendants of Jacob, only the Lord’s faithful Christian people will survive His wrath, as we are told in Isaiah 17:4-6 On that Day, Jacobs glory will fade.....only the gleanings will be left. Jeremiah 6:9, Ezekiel 20:37-38, Romans 9:27

    His people are ‘drunk, but not with wine’. Amos 8:11-12 explains this: In days to come, I shall send a famine on the earth, not of hunger for food, but for hearing the Word of the Lord. People will stagger everywhere, searching for the truth, but will not find it.

    ‘The cup of wrath, handed to the enemies’. This will be the fulfilment of Psalm 83, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Revelation 6:12-17 and many other verses that detail this sudden and shocking disaster to those who want to take over the holy Land.

    ‘I keep you covered by My hand’. Isaiah 31:5 describes how the Lord will protect Jerusalem, but there are many promises how all who call on Him will be saved. Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21, Isaiah 43:2

    ‘They will gather and settle into the Promised Land’. The great Second Exodus of all the Lord’s people, whether they be true descendants of Abraham or those grafted in, will live in peace and security, at last fulfilling their true destiny being a ‘light to the nations’ and proclaiming the coming Kingdom of Jesus.

    Show us miracles............

    -----------------from an episode of the X-Files--------------------------------------
    prisoner speaking to cancer man, "What do you give them?"

    cancer man, "We give them happiness and they give us authority."

    prisoner, "Authority to take away their freedom in the guise of democracy."

    cancer man, "Men can never be free because they're weak, corrupt, worthless and restless.
    The people believe in authority. They've grown tired of waiting for miracles and mystery.
    Science is their religion. No greater explanation exists for them."
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So much for miracles in the eyes of the secular world.

    For the church, miracles DO NOT happen when there is sin in the life of the believer.

    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LICENSE TO SIN.

    An oft quoted phrase today is that Christ destroyed the Law. He did not.

    "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." - Jesus as quoted in Matt 5:17

    The OT is riddled with stories about failure of human efforts due to God's refusal to bless sin in the congregation. If one wants to know why there are no miracles, one has to look no further than one's own flirtation with sin.

    and that's me, hollering from the choir loft...

    I have something I’d like to share that I think was a miracle. I took my kids to an indoor trampoline park and was playing in a huge ball pit. It was about 30’x30’ and about 4’ deep. My daughter was throwing balls at me so to get even I scooped a huge bunch of balls with both my arms and flung them at her and my wedding ring came off. I panicked and immediately started searching for it. It was impossible to see the floor and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t move the balls out of the way so I could see the floor. So I had to start sliding my hands on the floor scanning every inch. I searched for about 30 minutes and found a cell phone and someone else’s ring. I gave them to the people who worked there. After 30 minutes my arms were getting really tired of pushing thru all the balls and I decided I had to take a break. So we ordered a pizza and sat & ate. Afterward I prayed and asked The Lord to please help me find my ring. My wife & I were both very upset that I had lost it. I went back to the ball pit and started digging towards the bottom again and as soon as my hand touched the floor my hand landed exactly right on top of my ring. I mean I didn’t have to slide it or anything as soon as it touched the floor I felt my ring. People may say that’s not a miracle but the odds of my hand landing right on it in that huge ball pit right after praying were pretty astronomical. I immediately shouted THANK YOU LORD!! I was amazed the thought that The Lord blessed me with finding my ring was very heart warming. PRAISE THE LORD!!

    The Lord does that sort of thing all the time.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.

    When we seek God's help we find God's answer.

    Matthew 21(NASB)...the "kingdom of God" (JESUS' SALVATION) will be taken away from you
    23 When He entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people (ISRAEL) came to Him while He was teaching,
    and said, “By what authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this authority?”...
    42 Jesus *said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures,
    ‘The stone which the builders rejected,
    This became the chief corner stone;
    This came about from the Lord,
    And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
    43 Therefore I say to you (ISRAEL), the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. (GENTILES)
    44 And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.”

    45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them.
    46 When they sought to seize Him, they feared the people, because they considered Him to be a prophet.

    Matthew 23:37 (NASB)....Lament over ISRAEL
    37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her!
    How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings,
    and you were unwilling.

    Romans 11 (NASB)...Israel Is Not Cast Away
    1 I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be!
    For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin....
    17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive,
    were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree,
    18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; ...
    25 For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery
    —so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—
    that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in;
    26 and so all Israel will be saved;

    John 4:48
    So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people (ISRAEL) see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.”

    Psalms 10:1-11 Lord: Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble? The godless boast of their plans, but their ways are always devious. They are full of deceit and violence, reviling Your people and thinking: Their God has forgotten, He sees nothing.

    Psalms 10:12-15 Lord; break the power of the wicked and evil peoples, call them to account. Arise now and set Your Hand to the task. Do not forget Your people. The godless reject You, they think You will take no action. Lord, You see how they love terror and death, we commit ourselves to You – the Light and salvation of Your people. [The Lord's people; every faithful Christian]

    Psalms 9:7-14 The Lord will judge all peoples with justice. He is a tower of strength for the oppressed. Show us Your favour, do not ignore our cry for help, then we will praise You and proclaim Your mighty deeds, for You do not abandon those who acknowledge Your Name and seek You in faith.

    Psalms 9:15-20 The nations are trapped in a pit of their own making, entangled in their own net. The Lord will display His power and all the peoples who refuse to acknowledge the Living God, will depart to hell. The hopes and prayers of Your people will be realized, as You fulfil Your promises to them. For the Lord will arise and judge the nations, they will know they are only mortal.

    Psalms 10:17-18 You hear, Lord, the supplications of the humble, support them and bring redress. Answer now the prayers of the righteous, so that those who promote terror receive their just deserts.

    Psalms 9:2-6 We will praise You, Lord with all our hearts, we will rejoice and exult in You. For You have upheld our rights. You have rebuked the nations and overwhelmed the godless peoples. They are defeated, they fall and perish, totally wiped out, even the memory of them is lost.

    Psalms 10:16 The evil peoples have gone from Your holy Land and the Lord will reign forever! Deut. 32:43 Ref: REB. Some verses abridged and paraphrased.


    The Lord WILL arise and judge the nations. Psalms 94:1-7, Isaiah 33:10-12, Habakkuk 3:12

    The Lord WILL display His power: A massive CME sunstrike will cause all the prophesied effects. Isaiah 30:26-28, Deut. 32:34-35, Psalms 97:3-5, Isaiah 33:10-12

    The prayers of His people WILL be realized. 1 Peter 1:5, as You punish the ungodly nations. Isaiah 13:9-13, Nahum 1:2-6, Revelation 6:12-17

    Those peoples and nations who are full of deceit and violence, Psalm 144:7-8, those who love terror and death, Ezekiel 35:6, WILL fall and perish, they WILL depart to hell. Isaiah 66:15-16, Jer. 25:30-33

    The evil peoples have all gone from Your holy Land. Jeremiah 12:14, Ezekiel 30:2-9 Your people WILL rejoice and praise the Lord, Jeremiah 33:6-26, as they gather and return to their heritage. Isaiah 40:1-3, Ezekiel 20:34-38, Zechariah 10:8-10, Psalm 107:1-3, Hosea 2:14 & 11:10-11, Ezekiel 37:21, Jeremiah 31:8-9, Zephaniah 3:16-20

    The Lord WILL reign forever! Firstly the Shekinah Glory will return to the new Temple, Ezekiel 43:4, then later, Jesus will reign for 1000 years. Revelation 20:6 Finally, God and the Lamb will be eternally throned in the New Jerusalem. Revelation 22:1-5

    Today neither finds the answer they are looking for because we have corrupted the question.

    Jews do not want a sign.

    They only want the traditions of the pharisees to continue as it has since Jesus' day. Traditions reject signs. Jewish tradition rejects the truth of Torah/Tanakh and accepts only Talmudic interpretation. Even if Moses and Elijah were to appear before them a mere three rabbis could overthrow their words (a paraphrase of the Talmud).

    Greeks do not want wisdom.

    They only want a good argument. Political correctness will infuse the cancer of intellectual blindness into every attempt to gain wisdom. In the end their effort will rot and die from within.

    Christians want neither signs nor wisdom.

    They only want a spiritual thrill. Such thrills can be manufactured by a Vegas style musical extravaganza on Sunday morning coupled with repetitious propagandistic slogans in their mid-week pseudo Bible studies. Lies repeated often enough are accepted as truth. The danger is that false doctrine is accepted as divine revelation and foreign ideology(*) will become second nature thus completing the total corruption of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The End Times are indicative of loss - loss of moral values, loss of devotion to the true God, loss of truth and loss of life. All of this is in place today.

    What people are really asking for is more of the same.....

    that's me, hollering from the choir loft...

    (*) Islamic ideology is creeping into sermons and accepted buzz words in the church. Gullible bobbleheads on Sunday morning wag their craniums and buy it all without so much as the slightest evidence of doubt upon their brow. I've sat in such places heard the words and seen the reaction. The gospel is dying and its replacement is being accepted with open arms.

    So what do Christians want? Tickling of the ears? 2 Timothy 4:3-4 The proliferation of books, movies and preachers spouting prosperity and the rapture rubbish, just leaves people complacent and uncaring.

    Jesus clearly stated what will and has happened; The wisdom of the wise will vanish and; You have hidden these things from the wise and revealed them to the uneducated. Matthew 11:25

    Many will try to gain this knowledge. Daniel 12:4 But only a few will understand. Daniel 12:10

    Here is a Bible passage that seems to fit how internet forums operate in our modern age:

    Ezekiel 33:30-33 People gather in groups and talk among themselves, saying: Let us see if there is any message from the Lord.
    So people will read what is Written, but they will not act on it. Fine words, they will say, with insincerity, for their hearts are set on going their own way and they believe false teachers who promote prosperity and removal from any Tribulation.
    To them, anyone who tells the truth of the Prophetic Word, is no more than a singer of fine songs, or a gifted musician. They will read the truth as presented, but none will take heed of it.
    When disaster comes, as it come will, only then will they remember that they were warned, but failed to take notice of what God's prophets had told them.
    REB. Condensed and paraphrased.
