Welcome to the new revised and updated website “Blow the Trumpet in Zion.” This is a Bible Prophecy Teaching website dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ and to His Word the Bible. Its purpose is to seek a deeper understanding of what God has already revealed in His Word about the Second Coming of Jesus and the Last days. The whole subject of Bible Prophecy is like a “spiritual minefield” which can blow up in all and every direction. There is no end of prophecy websites on the Internet and many of them go to extremes in what they are trying to tell us. Of course no-one has a monopoly on understanding Bible prophecy as God is still revealing what has been largely sealed in ages past. In fact God said to the prophet Daniel; “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. (Daniel 12:9-10)
Today I believe that God is unsealing what has been sealed up for many centuries. What you see happening in the Middle-East today and especially where the nation of Israel is concerned is all part of God’s Biblical and Prophetic plan and purposes for Israel, for the Church and for the world. Yet only those who have the wisdom of God through the revelation given by the Blessed Holy Spirit will understand the signs of the times leading up to the return of Christ. In these last days we must have the illumination of the Holy Spirit where Bible Prophecy is concerned. Understanding God’s prophetic word and faithfulness go hand in hand. The Apostle Peter also said regarding the prophecy of scripture; “And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” (2 Peter 1:19). There is no doubt that we are in the very last days because Israel is back in the Land that God gave them to be their “Everlasting Possession.” In 1948 when Israel became a nation once again God’s prophetic time clock for the Last Days leading up to the return of Christ started to tick again.
I am indebted to the ministry of Derek Prince who started me on my journey into understanding Bible Prophecy. Also the teaching of Jacob Prasch from Moriel Ministries has greatly enhanced my understanding of Biblical Prophecy viewed from the Jewish perspective and not with a western mindset. Recently I have appreciated the ministry of Walid Shoebat who has helped me to develop my understanding of Biblical Eschatology and how it relates to the nations and events occurring in the Middle-East today. The teaching of these men is reflected in this website and I trust I will not be accused of plagiarism. Paul writing to Timothy said to him; “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2). I have sought to be faithful to the Word of God. My opinions do not matter at all but only what God has said!
I trust that the blessed Holy Spirit will enable me to be faithful in this matter as those of us who teach will be judged with a greater strictness. I have sought to avoid any embellishments or additions to what is written in scripture, Indeed the Apostle Paul himself said that, “We must no go beyond what is written” (1 Corinthians 4:6). Furthermore, keep in mind that what Jacob, Derek and Walid have been teaching is not new but passed on down from past Bible Prophecy scholars who were on a learning curve themselves where Bible Prophecy was concerned. I well remember as a teenager, some 45+ years ago now, Godly men discussing events in the Middle-East and other matters especially concerning the Antichrist himself. In those days they were looking mainly at Europe and Rome, however, today an increasing number of excellent Bible scholars are looking to the Middle-east and especially Turkey concerning the coming of the Antichrist.
I am well aware of my own lack of understanding in some areas of Bible Prophecy and this website is not “the final word” in this matter. Looking at some websites and listening to some contemporary Prophecy teachers one cannot help but sense a certain amount of dogmatism and even presumption that seems to convey the message that they have the handle on understanding Bible Prophecy. Some preachers have it all figured out with detailed charts on how everything will exactly happen. I have tried to avoid setting forth “a system of interpretation” where Biblical Eschatology is concerned and to “avoid all extremes” (Ecclesiastes 7:18). From what I have learnt from Brother Jacob’s approach to Eschatology makes perfect sense scripturally! Having a basic knowledge of the Bible in this area will not only give us spiritual light and insight in the encroaching spiritual darkness of these days but also insight into the events concerning the end times.
Furthermore, Having a Biblical view of Eschatology will motivate us to live more righteously before the Lord and to develop a sense of expectancy for His coming again. Indeed we are encouraged to seek to live “more righteously before God.” As it is also written; “And he (the angel) said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy” (Revelation 22:10-11). The Lord Jesus Himself is not only the Eternal Son of God but also the Prophet that Moses said God would raise up. “For Moses said, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like Me from among your own people; you must listen to everything He tells you. Anyone who does not listen to Him will be completely cut off from the people” (Acts 3:22-23) (Also see Deuteronomy 18:18-19). Prophecy itself is a unique feature of the Bible and the mark that He is the true God. He said through the prophet Isaiah; “See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you” (Isaiah 42:9) and again God said through Isaiah; “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times what is to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please” (Isaiah 46:10).
Finally, God Himself is the God of history and although the whole world “lies in the power of the wicked one” we must not forget that “the earth and the fullness of it belongs to the Lord.” Throughout history since the Garden of Eden Satan has been trying to stop the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy, especially where Israel is concerned. The reason that he has persecuted the Jewish people more than any other ethnic group in history is because he knew that the Messiah would be Jewish and come from the Jewish nation. Furthermore, Satan’s intense desire is to destroy Jerusalem and annihilate the Jewish people so that the promises of God concerning the coming of Jesus to redeem Israel would not occur. However, this will never happen. Satan received his first defeat at Jerusalem and he will receive his last defeat at Jerusalem! We must not ignore or treat lightly the prophecies of scripture especially what Jesus tells us about the time of the end. If we avoid taking Bible Prophecy seriously then we will not be ready for Jesus return nor have light to see in the night of the great tribulation when it comes upon us suddenly and without warning! We must hear, love and obey the truth of God’s Word to spiritually survive in these last days! I trust the teaching in this website will help you to understand more clearly and thoughtfully what God is revealing today through Bible Prophecy as set out in the unchanging and Eternal Word of God!.
