A very timely message from Hal. Also a reminder that 70 nations are gathering in Paris this coming week. There is a LOT happening and happening quickly. Prophetic heads up folks!

Hal’s video follows a copy of his newsletter below.

From Hal Lindsey’s Newsletter:

I want to present a program that you’ve not seen for a couple of years, but is incredibly important in view of the recent attacks on Israel — and God’s people — by the Obama Administration. What the world does not understand, and many Christians don’t, is that the Jews share a very special relationship with the Creator. With Him, they have a covenant that supersedes any political arrangements or efforts by men or the governments of men.

To ignore the provisions of that covenant is to risk the repercussions God Himself promises. That’s what I believe the Obama Administration has done with its latest action — or non-action — at the United Nations.

So to give you background about why it is so critical for America to support and defend Israel, I want to present this week a program I simply call, “The Covenant.”

To understand God’s plan for the world, it is vital to understand what, at first, may seem like a dry subject - covenants. In the Bible, God makes two kinds of covenants with human beings – conditional and unconditional. A conditional covenant is predicated on God saying to man, “If you will.” An unconditional covenant is predicated on God saying to man, “I will.”

Conditional covenants are like the contracts we humans make among ourselves. “If you give me a certain amount of money, then I will give you a car.” God makes conditional covenants, too. He made one with Israel through Moses. In Exodus 19, He said, “If you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”

Did they obey His voice and keep His covenant? No. God offered them a deal, but they didn’t fulfill their part of the bargain. Does God then have to fulfill His part? No. A conditional covenant means, “If you do this, then I’ll do that.”

But God also made unconditional covenants. In an unconditional covenant, God simply says, “I will.” Period. Once such a covenant goes into effect, there are no conditions that have to be fulfilled by human beings.

God’s covenant with Abraham – what theologians call “The Abrahamic Covenant” – is an unconditional covenant. Through the years God reiterates and expands it, but He never changes the unconditional nature of it. Indeed, He cannot change it or He would be a liar and the Bible says in Titus 1:2 and elsewhere, “God… cannot lie.”

To add other conditions later would be like moving the goal posts just as the football team is about to score a touchdown. It wouldn’t be honest. God is not tricky. He’s trustworthy. Once the covenant went into effect, nothing could change it. Later, God would reiterate the covenant and expand on it, but He never changed the nature of it, nor did He add conditions to it.

Those who claim He did, have a fundamental problem. They’re saying that God lied.

Psalm 105 says, “He has remembered His covenant forever, The word which He commanded to a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac. And then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, Saying, ‘To you will I give the land of Canaan As the portion of your inheritance.’”

This verse calls it a “covenant forever” and “an everlasting covenant.” If it depended on frail human beings, the Word of God could not call it “everlasting” because somewhere along the line human beings fail, as Israel proved again and again.

The Abrahamic Covenant is one of the great dividing lines of scripture. Disbelieving it won’t change God’s Word, but it will change a person in profound ways. Among other things, he won’t understand what’s going on in the world.

Because this is an unconditional covenant, it cannot end. It remains in effect today and forever. That makes it fundamental to Bible prophecy. Whatever else happens, you can bet the farm that God will keep His covenant with Abraham.

So if you want to look into the future, or have a better understanding of the present, look at the things God promised to Abraham. He expressed them in a series of direct and implied “I will” statements. “I will make you a great nation. I will bless you. I will make your name great. I will make you a blessing. I will bless those who bless you. I will curse those who curse you. Through you, I will bless all the families of the earth.”

Romans 11:1 succinctly asks and answers the most pertinent point. “Has God cast away His people? Certainly not!” That’s just one of many New Testament passages refuting “replacement theology” and affirming that God’s covenant with Abraham is still in effect.

Not only does this covenant help us understand what’s happening in the Middle East right now, it is foundational to the central meaning of all the Bible’s teaching – from the identity and purpose of Jesus, to “salvation by faith alone,” to Christ’s coming to set up a literal thousand year kingdom on earth, to Christ’s secretly snatching up all believers to heaven before the great Tribulation begins.

Tune in this week as I discuss “The Covenant.”

ARE YOU COMPLETELY PREPARED? 
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PREP YOU CAN DO! 
  
The Bible tells us that every human has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which is  is a heart-penetrating truth. He has provided a way to cleanse us of our sins since we can never be “good enough” to cleanse ourselves. That avenue to God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness (the cleansing of our sins) is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who is equally God.
 
Not one of us are guaranteed a “tomorrow”. Has your time run out? Will you continue to ignore the promptings of God the Holy Spirit or have you awakened to the essential need for God, risking eternal damnation?
​​
God the Holy Father, God the Holy Son and God the Holy Spirit are One God, the true, living, uncreated God Who is ever-present, all knowing, all powerful and all loving. He desires that every single person be forgiven, saved and to live eternally with Him. He is our only real protection and His love for you is unchanging. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, the true Messiah, today.
 
You can’t take your salvation for a test drive. You’re all-in or not.
 
Admit to Him that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, that you are truly sorry for your sins.  Acknowledge that He died for your sins, rose from the dead and lives forevermore. Invite Him into your life and to help you to turn from sin. Rejoice! You just became a Christian! Now trust in Him and get to know Him through the Bible which tells us everything we need to know and through prayer/talking to Him. He eagerly desires relationship with you.

    If what Lindsey believes is true, then why does Israel behave in a not so God like manner? God would never behave like this to his fellow man! They do everything that God spoke against.

    …The inheritance of God is not to the “State of Israel”. The inheritance goes to the “House of Israel”. Christians owe nothing to the state of Israel, or the Kazarian Jews. They are the biggest most intrusive “gang”, in the history of “gangsta”. Got their ‘global’ fingers in every pot…and plot.
    …Killers… every one.
    …They are looking to install their own earthly, messiah. to make real… the world’s, final government.
    …Satan knows his time is short…these demons have no limits, as to the abominations they can manifest. Nothing is beneath them. If you can’t see what they’ve been doing, you’re just not paying attention.

      The Abrahamic covenant
      Genesis 15:18
      In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:..

      Is Lindsey totally unaware that those who founded, occupy and control the State of Israel and who use the American military to destabilize and weaken their neighbors are NOT the “seed” of Abraham? One of their stated goals is to rid the world of all contemporary religions, including Judaism.

      Lindsey is likely a shill.
