The Conflict Between Israel and Palestine in the Old and New Testament

Kedar

Isaiah 21:16 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

Here is a time prophecy that has to do with a literal year not a prophetic year. According to the years of an hireling. Who is Kedar that all his glory shall fail?

Genesis 25:13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

Who was Kedar? He was the Arab who came from Ishmael. The Arabs came from Ishmael. Kedar is specifically mentioned to come to his end and none shall help him. All his glory would be taken away within a year. It is interesting to connect Kedar the Arab world and Turkey. Kedar and Mesech are connected and in the ancient world. Mesech was in Turkey. They have always been a trouble spot for the Jews.

1. The Ends of the World

By John Thiel, Hebrew Wilderness Wanderings Conference, study 1, mp3

1 Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.  11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Welcome ye upon whom the end of the world has come. Is this the end of the world? Today the church is crying as it has cried for centuries. The cry of Gods church for centuries has been the words of John.

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Israel – The Parable of the Fig Tree

By John Thiel, mp3

Amos 4:12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: [and] because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

For how long have these words been uttered in the ranks of Adventism? For a very long time already. Those who have been familiar with Adventism all their life will recall that some of the generations that have now passed away used to preach that they expected Jesus to come in their lifetime. But they have passed away. Their parents too have expected that Jesus would come in their lifetime, and He didn’t. The words of our present message come almost as a mocking to many Adventist people today. “Prepare to meet thy God”? Do the young people think that Jesus is coming in their lifetime? But just a moment, are you sure? So many before you thought they were sure too. Is it possible that we here, at such a time as this, with such a message as this, could be as much disappointed that Jesus will not come in our lifetime too? If that same question would have been asked in Sister White’s time, in the time of my grandparents, they would have said, No! just like you are saying no right now. Read the rest of this entry
