Teresa Casalino and Kimberly Rogers very kindly invited the B’Ney Yosef Region 35 team as their guests for the October 28 edition of Cuppa Shebrews, the Wednesday morning show on Hebrew Nation Radio. Al and Larry came on during the second hour to talk about the conference, which is scheduled for December 4-6 in Denton, TX (30 miles north of Dallas). We were able to introduce our website (http://bneyosef35.com/), provide our email address (email@example.com), present details on registration, and discuss how the idea for the conference developed. The key point out of that discussion is the desire to see repentance and reconciliation among all segments of the Body of Messiah as an essential prerequisite to the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel.
We followed an interview with Eddie Chumney of Hebraic Heritage Ministries as he presented his latest Watchman of Zion report. It is worth your time to listen to Eddie’s presentation about the reasons why Russia is now heavily engaged in the military conflict in Syria, and the prophetic implications of the Russian actions. (There is much more information at the Watchman of Zion site, including very helpful maps and charts!)
The entire podcast is available at this link below. Our portion follows the interview with Eddie at 51 minutes into the podcast.
Is the world as we know it about to change? How is it about to change? And when is this change going to happen?
To the first question I respond with an unqualified yes. To the second I can only say, “In ways that no one expects – not even the most careful and prayerful observers.” Regarding the third question, I submit that it is changing even now. As a historian, political scientist, and former military professional, I can assert that the global political, economic, and military system of planet is undergoing a massive realignment such as has not occurred since World War I, and most likely not since the advent of the modern nation-state system in the 17th century. That is the subject of two blog series published byThe Barking Fox in 2014 (“When Empires Die: Thoughts on the Centennial of World War I”; and“The Shemitah and the Yovel: Examining the Relevance of God’s Appointed Times”.
One sign of change is that people are now talking more openly about things that until recently were only whispered in secret. For example, in two weeks a gathering of mature, dedicated, sincere followers of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), along with a number of reputable Jewish colleagues who do not agree with Yeshua’s Messiaship, are meeting in Israel to discuss how the growing Messianic/Hebrew Roots Movement among non-Jewish believers is part of YHVH’s promised restoration of the “Lost Ten Tribes” of Ephraim (Northern Israel). Such a thing would have been laughable a few short years ago, but now there is genuine reason to believe the prophesied restoration of the entire nation of Israel is in motion.
That is a happy example of these changes now discussed openly. A not-so-happy example comes from what would be considered “conspiracy theory”. Is a global conspiracy about to enthrone a totalitarian regime that will bring down the nations of the world, and our personal freedoms as well? If so, what are we to do? Or can we do anything?
I have paid some attention to these rumors of conspiracy over the years in the interest of seeing whether there is any substance to them. Perhaps there is. What is certain is that events in the United States and elsewhere in the world are moving in directions that have brought great concern among people I respect and consider knowledgeable. Recently I have had conversations with family, friends, and associates that indicate they are all watching developments and wondering what it all means. I have no specific answers, but I can pass on something that might help. Bonnie Harvey ofHebrew Nation News has published an article which looks at several streams of reporting on events that seem to point to aculmination point of some kind this coming September. Is there any substance to this? Let the informed and prayerful reader decide.
