The Epoch of History…

Terry Dashner…………Faith Fellowship Church PO Box 1586 Broken Arrow, OK 74013

Inrepparttar beginning God planted a garden, eastward in Eden. In His garden were all kinds of trees, which were pleasant torepparttar 140865 sight and good for food; however, inrepparttar 140866 middle ofrepparttar 140867 garden God placed two special trees:repparttar 140868 tree of life andrepparttar 140869 tree ofrepparttar 140870 knowledge of good and evil. He told his caretaker, Adam, not to eatrepparttar 140871 fruit fromrepparttar 140872 tree ofrepparttar 140873 knowledge of good and evil or he would die spiritually and begin dying physically.

The garden had a river also. The river wateredrepparttar 140874 garden and then divided into four headwaters that flowed out acrossrepparttar 140875 expanse. Two ofrepparttar 140876 rivers are still present:repparttar 140877 Tigris andrepparttar 140878 Euphrates rivers in modern day Iraq. The garden was perfection untilrepparttar 140879 tempter came. The tempter appeared as a serpent, deceiving Eve and conquering God’s Adam or first man. Sin infestedrepparttar 140880 garden and God’s caretakers. Thereupon Adam and Eve were driven fromrepparttar 140881 garden to workrepparttar 140882 ground byrepparttar 140883 sweat of their brows.

There is another Epoch in history that parallelsrepparttar 140884 Garden of Eden. The garden is Gethsemane. The name means “oil press.” It is whererepparttar 140885 oil is squeezed fromrepparttar 140886 olive. The last Adam, Jesus Christ, would be “pressed” in agony as He prayed to acceptrepparttar 140887 chalice of death atrepparttar 140888 Father’s hand. There was also a tree, central torepparttar 140889 garden. The tree was hewn into a Cross and placed on Mount Calvary. But there was also a river, but not a river of water. It wasrepparttar 140890 river of Life, manifested in flesh and blood. And they called Him Jesus because “He will save His people from their sins.”

Jesus toldrepparttar 140891 woman atrepparttar 140892 well in John chapter four and verse 10 that “If you knewrepparttar 140893 gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” Jesus,repparttar 140894 last Adam, said again torepparttar 140895 woman, “Everyone who drinks of this [natural] water will thirst again; (verse 14) but whoever drinks ofrepparttar 140896 water that I will give him shall never thirst; butrepparttar 140897 water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” Jesus isrepparttar 140898 water of life that took on flesh and dwelt among us. But many have refused His living water because they were filled with another kind of water.

Russia and Her Allies Will Attack Israel

Written by Michael Bradley

This next event will be a major one! The Bible says that inrepparttar latter days, Russia and what appears to be Iran, Libya, Turkey and possibly Sudan will descend upon Israel and try to destroy her.

Israel will have no chance to win against this large army that will attempt to come against her. However, as you will see inrepparttar 140801 Scripture verse listed below, Godrepparttar 140802 Father will come to her rescue and will literally wipe this army offrepparttar 140803 face ofrepparttar 140804 earth. Here arerepparttar 140805 basic facts and Scripture verses that will tell you exactly what is going to happen with this awesome event.

1. The word "Gog" as will be mentioned inrepparttar 140806 Scripture verse below has been determined by many Bible historians to be referring to what is nowrepparttar 140807 country of Russia.

The other strange names that you will see listed below have been determined to be Iran, Libya, Turkey and possibly Poland and Sudan. All of these countries will be joining forces with Russia to try and destroy Israel. You already know that most ofrepparttar 140808 Arab nations hate Israel and would love nothing better than to have a chance to wipe her out.

2. When readingrepparttar 140809 Scripture verses listed below, you will notice that it appears to be Godrepparttar 140810 Father who isrepparttar 140811 One who will be pulling Russia and her allies out to come against His chosen people. The Bible says:

"I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws and lead you out."

3. The Bible says that Israel will be dwelling safely in her land when this event happens - so this cannot be occurring atrepparttar 140812 midpoint ofrepparttar 140813 Tribulation. It has to occur sometime beforerepparttar 140814 midpoint. The Jews will not be living in peace and safety duringrepparttar 140815 midpoint ofrepparttar 140816 Tribulation becauserepparttar 140817 Antichrist will be starting to massacre them once he sits himself in their temple proclaiming himself to be God.

The Bible says that after God destroys this army that will come against Israel, that it will take seven months to buryrepparttar 140818 dead and 7 years to burn all of their weapons left onrepparttar 140819 battlefield. If it is going to take 7 years to burn their weapons, this event will probably occur at least 7 years if not longer beforerepparttar 140820 midpoint ofrepparttar 140821 Tribulation to giverepparttar 140822 Jewish people that amount of time to be able to complete this kind of task. Remember, inrepparttar 140823 first half ofrepparttar 140824 Tribulation,repparttar 140825 Antichrist will make establish some kind of peace treaty with Israel -which may help explain how Israel could be in any kind of peace as described inrepparttar 140826 Scripture verse below.

4. How does God destroy this army coming against His people? He will do it in 6 ways. This will berepparttar 140827 wrath of God coming into full manifestation against this invading army! God will be releasingrepparttar 140828 following judgments against this army:

  • A great earthquake
  • Pestilence, disease and bloodshed
  • A torrent of flooding rain
  • Great hailstones
  • Will pour down fire and brimstone
  • This army will then be so decimated by all ofrepparttar 140829 above judgments, that they will then start fighting and killing on another - probably in an effort to get away from all of this which they will not be able to do.
The Bible says that God will have "FURY IN HIS FACE" and that He will render all ofrepparttar 140830 above judgments because ofrepparttar 140831 JEALOUSY FOR HIS OWN PEOPLE. His fury and jealousy in seeing this army try to come against His chosen people will cause Him to release His Wrath against them in full force.
The release of His wrath will be so powerful when He releases these specific judgments against this invading army - thatrepparttar 140832 Bible says that allrepparttar 140833 creatures and all ofrepparttar 140834 people on this earth will be shaking at His presence.
I believe God is making a powerful statement torepparttar 140835 rest ofrepparttar 140836 world with this event. The Scripture verse listed below says that God will magnify Himself and that all ofrepparttar 140837 nations ofrepparttar 140838 world will know that He isrepparttar 140839 Lord after all of these events unfold!

I believe that this one event alone will cause a lot of people to get saved. It will be so supernatural in its outcome, that people will be looking for answers - and ifrepparttar 140840 Church has not been raptured at this point, Christians will be able to provide answers torepparttar 140841 rest ofrepparttar 140842 world as to what just happened and how it all was prophesied to occur back inrepparttar 140843 Old Testament.

The Scripture Verse

1. Here isrepparttar 140844 main verse that very clearly and very graphically describes this incredible event. This verse is out of Ezekiel inrepparttar 140845 Old Testament.

"Nowrepparttar 140846 word ofrepparttar 140847 Lord came to me, saying, "Son of man, set your face against Gog,repparttar 140848 land of Magog,repparttar 140849 prince of Rosh, Meschech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him," and say, ‘Thus saysrepparttar 140850 Lord God; "Behold, I am against you, O Gog,repparttar 140851 prince of Rosh, Meschech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them with shield and helmet ... After many days you will be visited.
