the beginning, from ancient times
what is still to come. I will say:
My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”

About Us

           

         Welcome to the new revised and updated website “Blow the Trumpet in Zion.” This is a Bible Teaching website dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ and to His Word the Bible. There are two sections to this website. The one you see is the Biblical Prophecy Section. However the other section called “Basic Bible Doctrines and Foundational Teaching” deals with the more fundamental doctrines of the Bible including some topical and expository teaching. To go to this section please click on the “Foundations” button.

Welcome to the Biblical Prophecy Section

The purpose of this prophecy section 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!

Furthermore, keep in mind that what Jacob Prasch, Derek Prince and Walid Shoebat 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 trust that the blessed Holy Spirit will enable me to be faithful in teaching His Word 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).

         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).

                   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.” 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).

 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 prophecy section of the 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!.
