…French military action in Syria against ISIS, as claimed by barbarian murderers to ‘justify’ their attacks a week ago last night!

NO! Several prime verses of scripture and recent prophetical insights reveal the reason for citizens’ vulnerability in Paris as being their government’s hostile actions against the Jewish state of Israel.
One consequence of acting contrary to the Lord’s directives is the lack of His protective blessing! That is, unfortunately for the French they don’t appear to be in His favour.
Our hearts go out to all those grieving over those outrages. Yet we should always be aware of the ‘law’ of sowing and reaping as revealed in the earliest Christian letter:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8 NIV)
Most saddening, however, is the fact that one of the songs being sung by attendees at the heavy metal concert was blatant satan worship! Rock group Eagles of Death Metal played their ‘kiss the devil’ song – then well over a hundred souls went down into his dark domain! I write with personal knowledge of this because it nearly happened to me in 1989 during a near-death experience (see Rescued from Hell). It so grieves me they’re now paying the price of having put their souls in grave peril.
Prophetic Words of 2012-15
A week ago this morning I saw headlines about this year’s second atrocity in Paris, and one of which I realised connected directly into its true cause. More about that later for I immediately recalled what Neville Johnson said last year in Urgent prophetic words about a cut-off date in God’s timeline:
“There is a definite cut-off point that is going to happen. A lot of things have been held up because God in His mercy has waited and waited and waited…and God has given us more time and more time. But he spoke to me,
“Neville, it is over. There is no more extension of time!”
In August last (2015), Neville reminded us that extension of time will end in September, “Time has run out” (see Last blood moon ushers in new era).
In 2014 Neville revealed he’d had more encounters with the Lord than in any previous year. “Things have become critical. It is the season of change”. In particular he shared,
“…we are on the brink of something great and something terrible. Time is running out for us and we have to be prepared for what is coming, particularly this nation (USA), butthere are ramifications for other nations around the world as well. We are on the brink of something great…” (emphasis added).
He divulged several things the Lord had given him, one of which in my humble opinion relates directly to last week’s atrocity (textual format reflects vocal emphases):
“THE ISSUE OF SOWING AND REAPING IS BECOMING CRITICAL. Everything is speeding up. The process of sowing and reaping is being shortened over recent times; scary, because we don’t always sow the right things and it is coming back quicker.”
Whilst writing I’m reminded of a strongly anointed word given within weeks of launching this blog. On 6th January 2012 evangelist Nathan Morris told how the Lord had spoken to him with Holy Spirit strongly impressing upon him that such will be the unfolding of global events in 2012 –and in days that lie ahead – that fear will strike the hearts of men; ever-increasing unrest and a spirit of confusion shall be released upon the world, uncertainty and hopelessness will even grip the hearts of believers.
This exceptionally anointed prophetic word begins as follows:
“For lawlessness will abound as nations and their leaders meet together to try and make alliances dnd allegiances one with another. They shall seek peace, but shall not find it – they shall seek peace, but shall not find it! This will cause many to cry from the rooftops for resolution but it will still elude them, for a time for further unrest will be their reward.
“For even in 2012 there shall be great events that will change the course of this world, as you know it! For as many pour out their resources to find solutions of peace, another crisis will drain them of knowledge and resolution.
“For I would know that My people would hear My voice, that I am setting the stage for that which I have foretold in My Word and it will quickly and swiftly come to pass
. For the days are coming when the lawless one shall be revealed and the son of perdition shall take his stand…” (Setting the stage for the End-Times at 2:23:30).
Neville Johnson on France
At this year’s conference in Lancaster USA, Neville referred to France being judged, but I deemed it wiser not to repeat his remarks. He mentioned Dickens’ classic ‘A Tale of Two Cities‘ and compared the fate of London with that of Paris and noted the author’s prophetic contrasting of extreme opposites. This applies today too as, “The tale of two kingdoms: light and darkness”. (If you haven’t yet seen that video then now’s definitely the time! My reference is at 32 minutes.)
Neville spoke of France’s poor future being a consequence of the way it persecuted theHuguenots. He could also have mentioned the post-Revolution republic’s secular stance against scripture. Today’s president, Francois Hollande, is an avowed atheist although he was raised as Catholic (Quartz: These are the religious beliefs of Europe’s leaders).
That fact possibly provides the ‘raison d’etre’ to his official policies towards Israel.
(This is quite clear from the detailed content accompanying that other headline I saw a week ago this morning. In the midst of several on last Saturday’s Koenig’s World Watch Daily I noticed ‘France’s war against Jews – Caroline Glick’. I will cover this in part two of this post.)
The relevance of Neville’s remarks are corroborated by the in-depth report of ‘Francois X’ in the discussion thread of Nelson Walters’ Paris is just the beginning…
‘You write: “If they were reading and understanding their Bibles they would know that Paris is just the beginning”.
Unfortunately, very few people in France read their Bible. Since the French revolution in the late 18th century, France has been, a secular country. The Elohim of the Bible is not part of the French scene anymore. This is very unfortunate, and what we are experiencing, and I fully agree with you, it is just the beginning, is mainly due to our nation rejecting Yahweh…’

This is from the blog wordsoffaithandgooddoctrine:
“They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.” Psalm 107:4
The true Christian finds this world to be a wilderness.
There is no change in the world itself.
The change is in the man’s heart.
The wilderness wanderer thinks it altered—a different world from what he has hitherto known . . .
his own family,
the employment in which he is daily engaged,
the general pursuits of men—
their cares and anxieties,
their hopes and prospects,
their amusements and pleasures, and
what I may call ‘the general din and whirl of life’,
all seem to him different to what they were—and for a time perhaps he can scarcely tell whether the change is in them, or in himself.
This however is the prominent and uppermost feeling in his mind—that he finds himself, to his surprise—a wanderer in a world which has changed altogether its appearance to him. The fair, beautiful world, in which was all his happiness and all his home—has become to him a dreary wilderness.
Sin has been fastened in its conviction on his conscience. The Holy Spirit has taken the veil of unbelief and ignorance off his heart. He now sees the world in a wholly different light–and instead of a paradise it has become a wilderness—for sin, dreadful sin, has marred all its beauty and happiness.
It is not because the world itself has changed that the Christian feels it to be a wilderness—but because he himself has changed.
There is nothing in this world which can really gratify or satisfy the true Christian. What once was to him a happy and joyous world has now become a barren wilderness.
The scene of his former . . .
anticipations of profit or happiness—is now turned into a barren wasteland.
He cannot perhaps tell how or why the change has taken place, but he feels it—deeply feels it. He may try to shake off his trouble and be a little cheerful and happy as he was before—but if he gets a little imaginary relief, all his guilty pangs come back upon him with renewed strength and increased violence.
God means to make the world a wilderness to every child of His, that he may not find his happiness in it, but be a stranger and a pilgrim upon earth.

This is from the blog wordsoffaithandgooddoctrine:
“Prayer is the highest activity of the human soul, and therefore it is at the same time the ultimate test of a man’s true spiritual condition (there is nothing so much as prayer life that tells the truth about us as Christian people). Everything we do in the Christian life is easier than prayer.” – Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“No man is greater than his prayer life. Poverty-stricken as the church is today in many things, she is most stricken here, in the place of prayer. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.” – Leonard Ravenhill
“It is in the closet, in the morning watch, that our spiritual life is both tested and strengthened. There is the battlefield where it is to be decided every day whether God is to have all, whether our life is to be absolute obedience. If we truly conquer there, getting rid of ourselves into the hands of our Almighty Lord, the victory during the day is sure. It is there, in the inner chamber, proof is to be given whether we really delight in God, and make it our aim to love Him with our whole heart.” – Andrew Murray
“Prayer plumes the wings of God’s young eaglets so that they may learn to mount above the clouds. Prayer brings inner strength to God’s warriors and sends them forth to spiritual battle with their muscles firm and their armor in place.” – Charles Spurgeon
I received this email earlier this morning:
We picked you up in early August this year and took you to West Yellowstone. My girlfriend and I were driving a blue beetle with two small dogs. We were on a road trip through the West and talked about encounters with hitch hikers (the guy who took the hitch hikers clothes and dropped them off 20 miles away after he pulled a knife on him), and about how you got into Hitch hiking, etc.
It was a memorable meeting for us and we still think about you from time to time. I remember that you had given your tent away to someone who needed it because the zipper was broken, and your sleeping bags were well used, but still functional.
My girlfriend, friends, and I are avid campers/backpackers and have accumulated extra gear throughout the years. We thought if you needed anything (tent, sleeping bag, stove, water filter, food, jacket, shoes, etc) we could ship it to a post office of your choice around Christmas time.
We love the fact that you’ve followed your dreams and chose a unique and interesting path. You aren’t just another drone in society, and that’s worth something! We’d like to help support that dream!
Godspeed, high plains drifter!

Today is a red-letter day in my life. Earlier this afternoon, I was thumbing for a ride just outside of Wilson, Wyoming when this SUV pulled over onto the shoulder. The lady’s name was Ellen Lederman and we had a great talk all the way over Teton Pass to Victor, Idaho.
Ellen told me that her husband was a Nobel Prize winner in physics. I told her that I had never met a Nobel Prize winner before and that I had never met the wife of a Nobel Prize winner before. She said that her husband was Leon Lederman and that he won the Nobel Prize in 1988. She said that Leon also wrote five books. One of the books was entitled The God Particle; I told her that I had heard of this book.
We then started talking about John Nash and the film A Beautiful Mind. I told her that I thought it was a very good film. I had also read twenty pages of the book A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar. Ellen mentioned that she and her husband once had dinner with John Nash.
I told Ellen that I had an English professor at Iowa State University who later won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1992 (Jane Smiley, A Thousand Acres). Ellen said that she thought Iowa State was a very good school and that the state of Iowa was very beautiful: rolling prairie and clean and tidy farms that dotted the country side.
Ellen drove me to Victor and dropped me off at the laundromat so that I could wash a load of clothes.
Never the Same–Michelle Krubeck
This is from the blog Mouthpiece Ministries:
Ephesians 6:12 “For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age.”
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
One of the main differences I am noticing between the kingdom of God and religion or even the church age is the simplicity in which God does things. In the church age everything is laborious, time consuming, and honestly can feel very heavy. It is as though in the church age there is a lot of being busy doing nothing. But, in the kingdom on the other hand, which is actually a place, not just a nice phrase to quote, things are highly effective, cost effective and empowering. There is a sense of moving forward, of taking ground, of actually, genuinely advancing with the Lord Himself. Jesus spoke the people in His day and invited them to a kingdom lifestyle which included a yoke (work)but it was easy and a burden but it was light.
An area that is found both in the kingdom and the church age is that of intercession. Intercessors and intercession are an integral part of the kingdom life, but the way in which intercession is viewed in the kingdom is more like a sniper, rather than a laborious, time consuming activity that gets no recognition, but does what many feel like is most of the work. When the Lord spoke to me that intercessors are snipers in the kingdom, I was eager to discover who a sniper is and what they actually do. This is what I learned.
A sniper is a qualified specialist who operates alone, in a pair or with a sniper team for the sake of maintaining close visual contact with the enemy; engaging in targets from concealed positions; and engaging in distances exceeding the detection and capabilities of enemy personnel. This alone made me shout, INTERCESSORS ARE SNIPERS IN THE KINGDOM, for this is what they do and I am so honored to know some of them. But as I kept studying, I learned even more than just solidified what the Lord spoke to me.
A sniper’s job description is to deliver discriminatory, highly accurate rifle fire against enemy targets, they are marksmen (a person who is skilled in shooting at a mark). Snipers are force multipliers (an attribute which makes a given force more effective than that same force would be without it). This factor dramatically increases the effectiveness of a group. When I read this I shouted, snipers in the kingdom, multiply the body of Christ’s effectiveness because of their precision in with which they hit the enemy target with their prayers. Snipers ensure battlefield survival for the rest of the Lord’s army.
Qualities that a sniper must have include being patient, disciplined and are able to work alone. Snipers are sharp shooters. If this was not enough, the final discovery I made about snipers is the economic effectiveness they bring to the team. Snipers use 1.3 rounds of bullets (prayer time) while other military officers (members of the body of Christ) use 50,000 bullets (prayer time). Do you see how the sniper is able to do more with less? Moving from church or religion to kingdom, increases your effectiveness in prayer from being a soldier to a sniper.
Finally, soldiers hit man-sized targets 10% of the time at a 300 meter distance, while a sniper hits the same target 90% of the time at a 600 meter difference. Snipers in the kingdom are intercessors and they are extremely accurate, they know who their enemy is, they are patient enough to wait in hiding until they can get a good shot at him and take him out immediately. They save the kingdom time and money because of their skills and they force multiply the advancing of the kingdom, so the bride is accelerated in her gathering of others to meet their King. Snipers in the kingdom don’t spend long hours in prayer, for they are trained in hearing the voice of God, recognize the enemy and position themselves to take him out with minimal prayers. We will not win this battle without the snipers in the kingdom.
