The prophetic clock tick tock

Many events are coalescing around the world with prophetic players. It is not so much that Israeli elections came to a stalemate with division. It is not so much that Iran is rattling its sword. It is not so much that the world is in a very divisive state where major countries are facing visceral debates over illegal immigration, migration, refugee placement-essentially, a redistribution of the world population, much of which is due to Islamic wars. It is, however, that all these events are occurring at the same time. We can point to various prophecies regarding the end of times and the return of Christ and reasonably discern that the prophecy clock is moving forward with Israel as its timekeeper.
When we look at the chronology Christ gave in Matthew 24, there is a picture of what happens in Israel leading up to the return of Christ. Verse 10: And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. Verses 15-16: When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place…Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains.” The Daniel 11 prophecy speaks of the king that takes away the daily sacrifice and places the abomination that makes desolate. It goes on to say that many shall fall by the sword, by flame, by captivity and spoil. These are also prophesied in Zechariah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Joel, Revelation and other books of the Bible.
Israel is going to fall. There will be a time when the Beast will take over Jerusalem and do horrible things to the people there. Zechariah 14 says that Jerusalem will be taken, the houses rifled, the women ravished, and half of the city will go into captivity. But the Lord returns and sets things straight by defeating the Beast in a supernatural way as such that the nations “shall know that I am the Lord (Ezekiel 38:23).” The enemies of Israel will be defeated and the Lord establishes his kingdom on earth as foretold by the prophets. Zechariah 14:9 says, “And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.” Just as it is written in Romans 14:11, “For it is written (in Isaiah 45:23), As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”
We are constantly watching and discerning the times. Iran is making a play for the Middle East. Israel has had elections resulting in nothing but division. The Middle East is in turmoil. Islam is advancing around the globe either by sword or by immigration. As we look at all these events, we also need to pay close attention to what is happening in Israel. Israel is the timepiece for prophecy. There will be an event or a series of events that will set the stage and actually trigger all the other events that are in place for the return of the Lord. We can watch closely to see the convergence. What event causes division in Israel and opens the door for the enemies of Israel? We may be seeing today a type and shadow of prophecy evolving as Israel’s leaders are divided and the Joint List of Arab parties are united. Something to ponder and pray about.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

For the children in rural Ghana, the need is great

By Pastor William Agbeti
“Father, we have a huge challenge!” That was the alarming prayer that sprung up in my heart when we registered the 181st child that showed up for our feeding program this month, against an invited number of 150! The makeshift auditorium of the local rural church, Bread of Life Sanctuary, that we are supporting and where we fed the children, was packed to full capacity by both invited and uninvited rural children. These started showing up in their numbers, with great excitement, hours before the announced time of 1:00 pm! They came from poor rural communities spread miles apart.
As a result, we were compelled to set up an overflow area outside the auditorium to contain the extra numbers that kept pouring in! Many were reported to have come very early in the morning to survey the area to assure themselves that the feeding program was for real! We ran out of rented chairs and could not get any to rent in the whole of the Kojonya community where the program was held, forcing us to go for benches and other types of chairs for the children.  An hour before the official start of the program, which was held under the theme, JESUS – OUR BREAD OF LIFE!, we had 200 rural children on our hands to feed with both spiritual and physical food! 
Naturally, I started panicking! How could we possibly feed all these needy children? And we were still counting! Just then, definitely by divine intervention, a volunteer stepped up unto the platform where the musical instruments were and started singing: “We serve a Miracle working God who never fails!”
Immediately, the spirit of panic left me and I dashed down to where the cooks were. I asked the chief volunteer cook if we have enough to feed all the children. She reported they had noticed the situation and had reduced the size of the fried chicken by half, thereby creating 300 pieces! Thankfully she confirmed also there was going to be enough rice for all, if the intended portions were also reduced by half! Thank you Father, I exclaimed silently! Half a portion is better than no portion at all! I tried to convince myself!
It turned out to be a

first-time experience for the 200 children.  Many of these had never eaten fried rice! They were treated to a popular nutritious local drink called SOBOLO, made out of the hibiscus flower. They also had popcorn and a received donations of clothing. Our regular musical chairs and dancing competitions were held and the winners were presented with Bibles. At the tail end of the program, majority of the children took decisions to accept Christ and were invited to attend church. These were given summarized lessons about the Old and New Testaments. They learned there are 66 books in the Bible, with 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New. 
The need for them to have their own Bibles and carry them at all times was emphasized. We had a head count of the children who had Bibles and it turned out only a handful of them had bibles. Well over 150 had no Bibles. We promised to organize Bibles for distribution to them. 
As usual, I observed four developments that greatly humbled me and brought tears to my eyes! First, the portions of meals were obviously not enough for some of the children!  Secondly, many did not have popcorn to eat and were openly disappointed! Thirdly, when we assembled to have a group photograph, scores of children came over to cling to me, and will not let go; making me almost fall down! I had to control the tears welling up in my eyes! Lastly, after it all, a small boy aged about four walked to me and pointed out to something on a table somewhere. 
It was another child’s pair of shoes! I checked his name on the register of names, asked a volunteer to find out where he came from, and promised to bring him a pair of shoes! How can I ever fail to deliver on this promise?  Meanwhile, I am still thinking about how to address the overwhelming food needs of the children, with a regular monthly, if not weekly, feeding program for at least a year! This is my newest burden I have chosen to carry, so help me God!
Against above backdrop, we have purposed to have follow up activities to help establish the children in local churches, give them Bibles, supply some of their personal needs and win them and many more away from the reach or influence of Islam, traditionalist and other pagan and oppressive religions!
Hopefully, with a rippling effect and impact on our target children and rural communities, we would make a profound mark on rural Ghana with the feeding program! On the whole we had two local rural churches and two local NGOs supporting the program with children they bused to the venue, biblical literature and volunteers! To God be the Glory for a power-filled program like this!
