I had a heated discussion with a local friend recently, who flatly refuses to believe in the concept of "Creeping Sharia" or an underground Islamic legal conspiracy to advance and indoctrinate "Sharia Law" into American schools, courtrooms, the US military, and American pop culture.
The proponents of expanding Sharia Law in the United States do not intend to stop until it has been both established and usurps existing laws on the books in our courtrooms.

NOURISHMENT & NEWS FOR THE SOUL
What you are seeing and hearing in the news is the “sign” of the preparation of Israel for a great spiritual awakening in which multitudes of Jews turn to Mashiach Yeshua during the worst Holocaust Israel has ever known. Read the details below.
One day last week as I was writing, I said to the LORD, “There is so much happening that I can NOT keep up writing about it.” All of a sudden, a flash came across my mind from G-d as follows: “Son, if you can’t keep up with just writing and commenting about what’s happening in these times before the end, what do you think the people who are going through these problems feel like?”
Earthquakes, tsunamis, radiation, riots, governments murdering their citizens, food shortage, crop failures, price increases, inflation, economic crises … Whoa! One at a time, please!
When my firstborn child was born, the mother had an oscilloscope hooked up while she was in labor. The placenta had ruptured and the doctor wanted to keep an close watch on the labor. I was also able to see a graphical printout of the labor pains being monitored on the oscilloscope.
When the false pains were happening, the stylus drawing the graph was slightly volatile: it would jump up and down and you could see it moving back and forth on lines horizontal lines from 1 to 3. Later, when the pains got heavier, it would jump between lines 4 through 7 and started speeding up in oscillation. But … when the heavy labor pains started as the baby starting moving through the birth canal, preparing to make its entrance into the new environment of the outside world, the stylus would jump super fast – back and forth – between lines 7 through 10.
That is what we are seeing today. You and I are observing the start of the signs of the end times: the early (or, false) labor pains. Messiah Yeshua taught us:
“You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. see that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, disease and pandemics, and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of birth pains.”
– Brit Chadashah: Mattiyahu 24:6-8
This is what we are evidencing today: the early birth signs, the beginning of birth pains. The nation, Israel, is preparing to be delivered. The man child that Revelation 12:5 tells us about was born 2,000 years ago. He is the One Who will rule all nations with a rod of iron as we read in Psalm 2:9. The man child, or male child, was the Messiah who was caught up to G-d and His throne at the resurrection. But … the nation Israel will also deliver many Jewish people in the times of the end … so many will be born again that it will be like a nation born in a day.
“Now a great sign appeared in Heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.”
- Revelation 12:1
Notice, the above is a reference to Joseph’s dream in Torah, Genesis 37:9, and refers to the nation of Israel. (The eleven stars represented his eleven brothers of the 12 tribes of Israel; and the fulfillment of this dream played out exactly in Pharaoh’s dynasty during Joseph’s reign.)
“Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
And another sign appeared in Heaven: behold, a great fiery, red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to G-d and to His throne.”
- Revelation 12:2-5
Isaiah, the Prophet, told 750 years before Messiah Yeshua was born that BEFORE the end time birth pains of childbirth would happen, that Israel would be producing the male Child: Yeshua, the Messiah.
“Before she was in labor, she gave birth; before her pain came, She delivered a male child.
Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once?
For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.
Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the LORD.
“Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your G-d.
- Tanakh: Isaiah 66:7-9
So, we see that Yeshua was the male Child who came forth from Israel, and went back up to G-d before the time of the end, and that Israel will produce – will birth spiritually by the NEW BIRTH – as a nation born in a day when the true labor pains intensify.
This coming time of the true labor pains of childbirth for Israel – the Great Tribulation – is called by the Prophet Jeremiah,“the time of Jacob’s trouble.” (Read about it in Tanakh: Jeremah 30:6-7.) Why is it called “Jacob’s” trouble? Because Israel is Jacob. Remember, Jacob’s name was changed to “Israel.” (Read the account in Torah: Genesis Chapter 32:28.)
This time of Jacob’s Trouble will last for 42 months, or 3.5 years, and is a set time determined in Scripture by Daniel the Prophet. (Tanakh: Daniel 9:27 “half of a week – heptad- and also the Book of Revelation Chapter 12, verse 7.) During this time the Chosen People of God in Israel will flle to a place where she has a place prepared by G-d. Many scholars believe it is in Petra.
Immediately after the Six Day War and the miraculous victory of Israel in 1967, I was asked to speak at a meeting of many Jews about Petra. I had a slide presentation that I took with me. Several in the crowd were Sabras from Israel, including a professor at the University of Judaism. During the meeting a Jewish person started yelling, protesting my presentation. Immediately, a man named Nissan Blumenthal, an attorney from Hollywood, California, USA, stood up and commanded the people to listen to me.
During the presentation, I explained to those present that the Time of Jacob’s Trouble would be a worse time the Jews have ever experienced: even greater than the persecution under Hitler and Nazi Germany.
It appears that the enemy of the Jews, Satan, causes a cataclysmic flood (almost like an inland tsunami) of some kind to destroy and drown the Jews who have fled; however, the earth “opens its mouth and swallows up the flood” in order to rescue Israel. (Read about this in Brit Chadashah: Revelation 12:13-17.)
It is time to prepare, pray for, and publish the Great News of Messiah Yeshua to our Jewish brethren. BLESSINGS will be yours in this life and forever. G-d promised to bless those who bless Israel.
We are living in an exciting day, my friend.
I was born for this time!

I found this news item on 01.23.2012 on Reuters. Here it is:
KABUL | Mon Jan 23, 2012 9:49am EST
(Reuters) – A cache of ancient Jewish scrolls from northern Afghanistan that has only recently come to light is creating a storm among scholars who say the landmark find could reveal an undiscovered side of medieval Jewry.
The 150 or so documents, dated from the 11th century, were found in Afghanistan’s Samangan province and most likely smuggled out — a sorry but common fate for the impoverished and war-torn country’s antiquities.
Israeli emeritus professor Shaul Shaked, who has examined some of the poems, commercial records and judicial agreements that make up the treasure, said while the existence of ancient Afghan Jewry is known, their culture was still a mystery.
“Here, for the first time, we see evidence and we can actually study the writings of this Jewish community. It’s very exciting,” Shaked told Reuters by telephone from Israel, where he teaches at the Comparative Religion and Iranian Studies department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The hoard is currently being kept by private antique dealers in London, who have been producing a trickle of new documents over the past two years, which is when Shaked believes they were found and pirated out of Afghanistan in a clandestine operation.
It is likely they belonged to Jewish merchants on the Silk Road running across Central Asia, said T. Michael Law, a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at Oxford University’s Center for Hebrew and Jewish Studies.
“They might have been left there by merchants travelling along the way, but they could also come from another nearby area and deposited for a reason we do not yet understand,” Law said.
“SOLD ELSEWHERE FOR TEN TIMES MORE”
Cultural authorities in Kabul had mixed reactions to the find, which scholars say is without a doubt from Afghanistan, arguing that the Judeo-Persian language used on the scrolls is similar to other Afghan Jewish manuscripts.
National Archives director Sakhi Muneer outright denied the find was Afghan, arguing that he would have seen it, but an advisor in the Culture Ministry said it “cannot be confirmed but it is entirely possible.”
“A lot of old documents and sculptures are not brought to us but are sold elsewhere for ten times the price,” said advisor Jalal Norani, explaining that excavators and ordinary people who stumble across finds sell them to middlemen who then auction them off in Iran, Pakistan and Europe.
“Unfortunately, we cannot stop this,” Norani said. The Culture Ministry, he said, pays on average $1,500 for a recovered antique item. The Hebrew University’s Shaked estimated the Jewish documents’ worth at several million dollars.
Thirty years of war and conflict have severely hindered both the collecting and preserving of Afghanistan’s antiquities, and the Culture Ministry said endemic corruption and poverty meant many new discoveries do not even reach them.
Interpol and U.S. officials have also traced looted Afghan antiquities to funding insurgent activities.
In today’s climate of uncertainty, the National Archives in Kabul keep the bulk of its enormous collection of documents — some dating to the fifth century — under lock and key to prevent stealing.
Instead reproductions of gold-framed Pashto poems and early Korans scribed on deer skin, or vellum, are displayed for the public under the ornate ceilings of the Archives, which were the nineteenth century offices of Afghan King Habibullah Khan.
“I am sure Afghanistan, like any country, would like to control their antiquities… But on the other hand, with this kind of interest and importance, as a scholar I can’t say that I would avoid studying them,” said Shaked of the Jewish find.
I found this news link on Twitter on 01.18.2012, watched the video, and was amazed by the similarity between mysterious “booming trumpet” sounds which are being heard in Europe and the classical trumpet blasts of Israel. I knew readers would enjoy seeing this too. I’m not stating any conclusion either way, but the similarity is eerie and perhaps, prophetic too. Under related videos below, the reader can see that people are recording strange whirring, booming and humming sounds all over the world. This phenomenon escalated beginning in the summer of 2011. I’m still collecting videos of the sounds. Many of the sounds seem mechanical or man-made in nature. My best guess is that underground base activity and new clandestine underground drilling may be the culprit. But in this first video, the sounds coming from the Ukraine are remarkably similar the classical blasts of the traditional Israeli trumpets.

This news report came from YT user Amy2x. It’s been online for some time but I found it for the first time today, and thought it to be highly significant. Here’s the report:

There are many insightful yet controversial new spiritual teachings emerging which examine the rise of Islam in the Last Days. Spiritual truth seekers and traditional Christians alike are examining the relationship of the Islamic religion to the concept of the “Beast” in Christian prophecy and scripture.I am one of those truth seekers, as many readers well know.
I am presently examining many new reports, articles and videos on this topic. I’d like to share two videos that I watched tonight. I have been praying for insight and understanding regarding the Islamic religion and the rise of the final Son of Perdition in the Last Days for months now. I do believe, on an intuitive and visceral spiritual level, that the prophesied 12th Imam of Islam, the “Imam Mahdi” is the one and the same man, who many Christians refer to as the final Son of Perdition, or the final Antichrist. This intuitive feeling has been like unto a slow dawning in my own soul over the past several years.
I am now being spiritually guided to read certain reports, books, and to locate certain teachings on this topic. As I find things that seem relevant to placing the clues into greater context, I will share certain of those items with readers. Here’s what I watched tonight:
By watching these two videos and then posting them for readers, I am NOT attesting that I believe every single word as presented in the material. The Christian Holy Bible is a deep and complex book, which is interpreted in a thousand different ways by different seekers. But this material seemed significant, so I posted it. Feel free to share this post with other Christians around the world. More new material is on the way.
