Is this the End of Days?

Fear1I felt at this time, with recent decisions coming from Washington D.C., that I needed to say something about the enemies rising against the American people.

Several weeks ago, Russian troops moved into Syria to take on ISIS. Now the decision has been made to move American troops into the region. After the announcement was made, several senators expressed their concern that, not only did the administration not know what they were doing, they don’t know who they are fighting. To make matters even more volatile, the Russians have moved their tactical nuclear weapons into the Middle East. Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared to the head of the Russian Orthodox Church his intention to destroy ISIS, promising to first warn every one else to get out of the way.

Iwo JimaUnfortunately, since 14 of our top military commanders have been fired in the last 18 months, as Senator Lindsay Graham expressed, it seems that those making the decisions in Washington don’t know what they are doing. But what else should we expect? When you have a bunch of progressive liberals in control who don’t believe in God, they have no understanding or idea of how to deal with a religious situation.

“So Pastor Ron… why are you bringing this up now?”

I’m glad you asked.

In Ezekiel 38:1-9, it says…

 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh (Russia), Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, 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, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

   “Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”

(Just for a little clarification… Rosh is Russia. Meshech and Tubal are Turkey. Persia is Iran. Those brought back from the sword is referring to the Jewish people.)

What we are currently witnessing is the beginning of a setup of the End Times.

Listen to Isaiah 46:10…

Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure…”

Please understand that I’m not trying to scare you. What I AM trying to do is to let you know that God’s got this! He has it all under control. Nothing that is going on is catching Him by surprise. When it seems to us that the world is out of control, we can rest assured that He has it under control.

Coptic ChristiansThe rebels in Syria that the Russians are fighting are the same as ISIS. Even though Russia will one day turn, right now they are on the right side of this conflict, and the U.S. is on the wrong side. If you look at any video of ISIS fighters, they are not carrying Syrian or Russian weapons… they are carrying U.S. weapons — the ones we gave them.

In my most recent book, The Hiram Code, I discuss not just what is going to happen during these turbulent times, but how you can have favor in spite of what is going on. When every nation was rising up against Israel, King Hiram was smart enough to embrace Israel. As a result, he became the wealthiest ruler in the world, with an empire that lasted 300 years — even longer than Israel.

So what do we do?

Prayer2We can pray.

We can trust God.

We can keep living our lives, and sharing the love of Christ with the world .

What we don’t have to do is live in fear and hopelessness. We don’t have to sit around, wringing our hands and waiting for those in Washington to start making good decisions. We have God’s Word. We know what has been declared from Heaven, and we need to get our lives positioned in accordance with His will. We need to live our lives for the glory of God.

Unlocking The Mystery

A lot of people are in fear of the end times. However, over the years I have discovered that if a person is in the right alignment in the will of God, somehow He takes care of them through the circumstances of life. There has been so much fear revolving around the “Blood Moons” and some of the harbingers that are out there that people are asking the question: “What are we supposed to do?”

In my new book, The Hiram Code, I have captured some positive promises from God, for everyone, that are always valid. When you look at The Hiram Code, you’ll find that it is in five sections:

Blow the Trumpet in Zion

The Israeli Connection for Last-Days Blessing

The Ancient Hiram Code for End-Times Prosperity

Isaac’s Secret for Favor in End-Times Famine

The David Factor for End-Times Victory

We have learned as believers that if the mindset of the world is against something, we should probably be for it. Throughout history, we have seen people and nations align themselves against the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. Yet God said of those who support Israel — through His promise to Abram — in Genesis 12:2-3…

I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

One thing we need to do today, in spite of world pressure, is to stay in proper alignment with Israel and their right to exist. With Iran, Israel’s avowed enemy, rattling it’s saber and declaring their desire to wipe Israel from the face of the earth, and other leaders voicing their disdain for Israel, we must take a strong stand and stand with God’s chosen people.

The Hiram Code itself is wrapped around the country of Phoenicia and its history. The word Bible comes from the Greek word biblos (βίβλος) which was the name the Greeks gave the papyrus plant from which paper and scrolls were derived. The Phoenicians were some of the first to invent this form of paper, and even had a city named Byblos, because of its extensive production and trading of this product. The Phoenicians (or Syrians, as we know them today) are Semitic people, just like the Jews, as they are also descendants of Noah’s son, Shem.

During the times of King David, there was a king named Hiram who loved David, and built him a house. Later, after David died, King Hiram embraced David’s son and heir to the throne, Solomon. It was King Hiram who helped King Solomon build the Temple in Jerusalem. Upon King Hiram’s death, his dynasty lasted for hundreds of years — 300 years longer than Judah — until they were finally overthrown by Alexander the Great.

The prosperity that fell upon Solomon was partially due to King Hiram. He taught the Israelites how to sail ships, which they sent out annually, and would be gone for three years. When the ships returned, they would be filled with gold, treasures, and other goods to use for trade and commerce. Both Israel and Phoenicia prospered greatly, in spite of difficult times.

Many people believe that the Phoenicians were the people referred to as “The Atlantic Sea People”, and that they came there with the skills learned from life on the sea. Only the Phoenicians embraced the Jews, and because of that, they found blessing and favor.

“So what does that have to do with today, Pastor Ron?”

King Hiram supported the house of David, which is a picture of the church. He supported Israel, which goes back to the promise in Genesis 12. He embraced God’s people and was blessed, because God is true to His Word. I believe that America has been blessed as a nation for many years, in part, because of our love and support for the nation of Israel. Godly blessing and favor are tied to how we treat His people. All of His promises are “yes and amen”, and our continued support of Israel is imperative for continued blessing.

An interesting fact is that the Cherokee Indians share DNA markers with both Phoenicians and Jews, which further intensifies the ties between these ancient people and our “First Nation” friends and neighbors.

So I encourage you to get The Hiram Code, and unlock the ancient key to walking in God’s blessings and favor.

Some other sections in The Hiram Code deal with…

  • Isaac. He sowed in his own land during a famine, and reaped 100-fold. What do you do and not do when hard times come?
  • The David Factor. How do you face the giants in your life and come out with the authority and provision you need?

The Hiram Code is a book of blessing and hope for people who do not want to live in fear during these Last Days.
