There is a debate among many students of prophecy. Some believe that many prophecies should be understood in Spiritual terms. In other words, they ‘spiritualize’ the words of the prophecy. Others believe the prophecy will come true in a literal sense. Until recently, I could never decide which was accurate according to God’s perspective. Then I started to study Scripture for myself, and to seek God’s wisdom. It was then that I realized both are correct. God is the perfect teacher. He knows we do not all learn the same way. Where some of us may learn from words, others need examples. This is why God’s most important messages are usually accompanied by some sort of illustration. This principle also applies to prophecy, but that’s not all. We should pay careful attention to the nature of allegory in God’s Word, as allegory is yet another form of teaching. In this case, the major events that have been recorded in the Bible were preserved for a reason, and allegory is one of them. they all work together to instruct and warn us. Skeptics and scoffers can ignore God’s warnings, and so can that part of the Church that has grown cold and dead. But those of us who still fear and love the Lord should be seeing the warning signs in the headlines. I do. It’s why, when I saw that Obama announced his deal to allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons for the purpose of destroying Israel right after Netanyahu had just warned us that he was coming to us as Mordecai, I was gripped with fear and foreboding.
Here is the story that caused me such concern:
On the Jewish calendar this year, April 1 coincided with Nisan 13, the date in history when a Persian king signed an agreement calling for the destruction of the Jews.
If you do not know the Biblical story of Esther and Mordecai, I strongly suggest you read it now.
Benjamin Netanyahu knew what he was saying when started his recent speech by telling us he came to us as Mordecai. This is history, so it is one of the areas where we can trust Beck:
Beck is correct: Netanyahu was trying to warn us of what is coming, and he was also trying to tell us we are Esther. This gives us a choice. We can either stand up and defend Israel and God’s people (this time, it is both the Jew and the Christian), or we can be destroyed.
When God causes so many things to happen exactly as they have in the past — especially when they happen on anniversaries of the events in the past, it is a clear warning. When God adds signs in the heavens to these warnings, it is intended to get our attention. In the past fourteen years, we have seen sign heaped upon sign, yet we are still blind to what is coming. 9/11 is connected to a prophecy in Isaiah, Read The Harbinger. The market crash seven years later is not only connected to the Harbinger of 9/11, but also to the Shemitah. Read The Mystery of the Shemitah. Then there are the four blood moons known as a tetrad, and the historic connections to Israel’s history. Read Blood Moons. Read about the Lord’s Feasts in the Bible and how Christ is foretold in each of them. Read the Bible! You will see that it is beyond coincidence. God is trying to wake those who will listen. Time is short, I pray you will answer Him.
