Matthew, Revelation, Zechariah, Ezekiel, The Sony Hack Attack, And The World Geo-Political Situation
Consider God’s Holy Word – Consider World Events – Don’t Be Left Behind
Matthew 24:1-21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) Selected Verses
1 As Jesus left and was going out of the temple complex, 3 While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” 4 Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. “6 You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these events are the beginning of birth pains. 9 “Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name 10 Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another. 21 at that time there will be great tribulation, the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again!”
Revelation 16:16 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
16 So they assembled them at the place called in Hebrew, Armagedon.
Zechariah 14:1-5 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
14 Behold, a day of the Lord is coming, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in the midst of you. 2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. 4 On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward.5 And the valley of my mountains shall be stopped up, for the valley of the mountains shall touch the side of it; and you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzzi′ah king of Judah. Then the Lord your God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
Revelation 19:11-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had ” a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”

China, Russia, or Iran May Have Assisted North Korea In Sony Pictures Entertainment Hack; al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, Other Darker Angels Are Watching And Learning From This Event
Fox News is reporting this evening that the U.S. investigation into the hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment, has turned up evidence that does not point to North Korea as the “sole entity,” in the case; but rather, raises the possibility that Iran, China, or Russia may have been involved,” an intelligence Community source told Fox News. Catherin Herridge of Fox News says “the [intelligence] source pointed to the sophistication of the malware “modules,” or packets that destroyed the Sony IT network — on a level that has not been seen from North Korea in the past — but, [which] has been seen from Iran, China, or Russia.
It is very important for believers in Christ to be aware of the things of the world and how they may be pointing to the rapture of the church, the tribulation, the return of Christ for the judgment of sin, and the final spiritual battle that will take place before God’s saved people will spend eternity with Him. Each day I will be posting information that relates to the end times. Consider the news post that accompanies this writing. The nations of North Korea, Russia, China, Iran, and Israel are frequently named in daily news reports. It will be my attempt to show a correlation between Israel and the nations of the world that are common-day critics and attackers of “God’s chosen people” (Deu 7:6). God’s Holy Word provides sound advice for those of us who know the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Hosea 4:6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”
It is important for God’s people to be aware of the events that are affecting our world today. Let me encourage you to keep up with the news reports each day. Unfortunately, the news outlets that I watched everyday while I was growing up have demonstrated a biased reporting against the nation of Israel. Fox news provides a more balanced view of current events. I watch as many of the news outlets as I am able to do so; I encourage you to do the same.
As we are faced with increasingly greater acts of lawlessness in our world, let us cling to the following verses of scripture.
Psalm 46:10 King James Version (KJV)
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The words of the HCSB appears to be appropriate for our world of today.
Psalm 46:10 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
“Stop your fighting—and know that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.”
As we are “being still” and knowing that “God is God,” let us take time to “take all of that in.” Consider God’s Word and the song about “who God is.” IMMANUEL! GOD WITH US!
Isaiah 7:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Isaiah 9:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Matthew 1:22-23 King James Version (KJV)
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
