Prophecy Fulfilled - He Shall Dip His Foot in Oil

Before Moses died, he blessed the children of Israel.  Of Asher he said, "Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.  Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; as your days, so shall your strength be" (Deut. 33:24,25).

An understanding of the significance of these oil and gas discoveries requires a review of some biblical history.  The following Bible verses describe God’s promises to reveal and provide tremendous wealth for Israel in the Last Days.

The passages below were probably passed on orally from generation to generation and then written down several thousand years ago.

Deuteronomy 33:24  (As said of Asher, the 8th son of Jacob)
“More blessed than sons is Asher.  May he be favored by his brothers, and may he dip his foot in oil.”

Genesis 49:25
“From the God of your father who helps you, and by the Almighty who blesses you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath.

Deuteronomy 33:13  (As said of Joseph)
“Blessed of the Lord be his land, with the choice things of heaven, with the dew, and from the deep lying beneath.

Deuteronomy 33:19
“They will call peoples to the mountain.  There they will offer righteous sacrifices, for they will draw out the abundance of the seas, and the hidden treasures of the sand.

Deuteronomy 32:12-13
“The Lord alone guided him, (Israel) and there was no foreign god with him.  He made him ride on the high places of the earth, and he ate the produce of the field.  And he made him suck honey from the rock, and oil from the flinty rock.”

Isaiah 45:3
“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.”

In Daniel 12:4 the angel Michael told Daniel, "Conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

When this verse is linked with those above, I believe it shows how God is fulfilling prophecy and more and more rapidly unveiling His plan for the world as the time of His return draws nearer.
Drilling for oil in Israel was first done in the late 1940s in an area south of Tel Aviv near Ashkelon. In 1952, in order to attract other exploration to provide for Israel’s energy needs, Israel’s parliament enacted a bill into law that gave attractive incentives to companies which would come to Israel and drill.

These incentives included low taxes and low royalty payments to the government.  Oil was discovered in 1955, but the size of the discovery was not significant.  Other small oil companies continued to drill.  They discovered a few oil fields, but these, too, were not commercially viable.

Your Life is in God's Hands

I don’t know what you're going through right now; but this one thing I know, Jesus is a friend that's closer than a brother.
Yes, you may have lost a loved one, experiencing health issues or going through a financial crisis. Just don’t give up, don’t give in to the enemy; Jesus promised never to leave you alone, for with Him you can make it.
You don't have to worry, and don't you be afraid, Joy comes in the morning; Know this, troubles don't last always; for there's a friend named Jesus, He'll wipe your tears away. He came so that you can have real and eternal life, more and better life than you ever dreamed of (John 10:10 MSG).
Jesus has you covered, "This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me" (John 17:3, 23).
But here's the thing, "Is Jesus a friend or just an acquaintance to you?" An acquaintance is someone that you can put a face to their name when you hear it. You recognize them when you meet each other in the store aisles or attend the same events; and if the situation called for it, you would be able to carry on a conversation with them.
These people, you would say, are not considered your friends. You don’t know them well enough to call them a friend. You don’t know them well enough to trust them with your feelings, to call on them for help, to share your pain, your joy, and your concerns.
Then there are those you would say are "My Friends", the ones you trust with your heart and your thoughts. These are the people you know you can go to when you need help. Your friends love you no matter what, and there’s no pretense or formalities, just you.
Jesus is such a friend. He is your Savior, your LORD, and the One to whom you obey and submit, but He is also your friend. He’s your friend because you know Him, and He knows you. There is nothing you wouldn’t do for each other.
So, here's the question, "Do you really know Jesus, or do you just know who He is?" In other words, would you consider Him an acquaintance or a friend? Your eternal destiny depends on you knowing without a doubt in your heart the relationship that you have with Jesus. He came to seek and to save the lost, the outcast, the brokenhearted, and to set the captive free. He has a place for you, your life is in God’s hands!

Let us Pray 
Dear Jesus, be my friend. Stay with me always and give me the desire to keep my heart completely open to You. To you I confess my sins and ask for your forgiveness. Help me not to worry, nor to be afraid knowing that Joy comes in the morning; I pray in your Name, Amen.

You're Blessed By God

Praise the Lord, Hallelujah! Here’s a timely word for you today. God knows your heart; and yes, He knows the end from the beginning. You’re blessed because you fear the Lord your God; and because you cherish and relish His commandments.

Your children shall be robust in the earth. They shall be established in righteousness, and their homes shall be blessed, abounding with wealth and a generosity that never runs dry.

Sunrise will break through the darkness for you with God’s grace and mercy and justice! You’ll overflow in kindness and lends lavishly; no shuffling or stumbling around for recognition; but a sterling solid and lasting reputation. You’ll lavish gifts on the poor, a generosity that goes on, and on, and on.

You’re unfazed by rumor and gossip. Your heart is ready, trusting in God with a firm spirit, that’s unperturbed; ever blessed, and relaxed among enemies.

You’ll have an honored life! A beautiful life; established in truth, peace, faith, righteousness, and salvation. Those who hate you will take one look with anger and sigh, but ends up speechless.

Finally, God’s Word is an indispensable weapon, for you’ll need it throughout your life. In the same way, prayer is essential for there’s nothing that will come of the dreams and desires of the wicked. Nothing, because you’re blessed by God!

No Political Solution To A Spiritual Problem

Christians are supposed to be “in this world, not of it.” Yet, so many church-goers are neck-deep in the world and are calculating what they must do in order to maintain their worldly position–even as their world collapses.

Even those who inhabit the churches many times fail to see the nature of the problems which confront the USA (and the world) as spiritual problems. Most are intent on the trees and fail to see the forest;  the media, framing the opinions of people.

"This is something that people have got to understand, the mainstream media to truth is what arsenic is to the living body, it's a killer. They control the narrative, and they control the outcome." ~ Steve Quayle

This denial of the nature of the problems which beset the USA and the world will be used against mankind when the man of sin makes his entrance. The world will be asked to “return to God.” Instead of God Almighty, the world will be deceived into turning to the dragon (Satan) and his false messiah.

The world will then get a heavy dose of man-created solutions to the overwhelming spiritual problems which will plague the world in the last days. Even when the problems are plainly spiritual, end times man will believe a lie, twisting himself into a human pretzel to deny this. It doesn’t matter how many Bible verses one tries to explain away: doing so only confirms that the problem is spiritual.

There is no political solution for a spiritual problem, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV).

Jesus is the answer to man's sinful condition (John 3:16). Now is the time to repent "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34).

Your Prayer and Vote Counts

God's word calls us to Pray! One key reason to pray is because God has commanded us to do so. If we're to be obedient to His will, then prayer must be part of our life in Him. But you may ask, "where does the Bible call us to prayer?" Several passages come to mind; but here's an excellent example:

"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty" (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

We are commanded to pray for our leaders and our country. But having prayed, God expects us also to act in accordance to our faith. Vital to the future of this nation, are the elections in the United States, and the next generation is counting on us to do our part. Just think for a moment, our country is in the midst of a spiritual revival, and it's vitally important that the right people are elected.

One bad decision by our elected officials could see (2 Chronicles 7:14) this nation spiraling in the wrong direction from which we may never recover. That is why we need divine intervention to give us wisdom to make right choices. We must see to it, because "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people"(Prov. 14:34).

So, don't wait until the election is upon us before you start seeking God for direction, how or for whom to vote. Begin to pray now, so that the News Media and other unsavory voices cannot influence and draw you in a direction away from the Spirit of God. Yes, Pray so that you won't be influenced by ungodly reactions and worldly responses to cleverly designed commercials and agendas.

Start praying now about the coming elections. Whether they're small local elections or major national elections, make them a part of every prayer you pray beginning today. Then thank the Lord our God for His wisdom concerning your vote. Thank Him for giving you His wisdom about what to say and when to say it to others. Thank Him for giving you wisdom to declare the Name of Jesus and assert that this shall be a God indwelt, God-ordained, God-overseen administration.

This is the land of opportunity! Your Prayer and Vote counts, so register. Pray. Vote. That's it: do your part and God will do His. We have His word, and He promised to answer when we pray.
