If you were following Tsiyon back in 2008 you may remember that
we did a series of radio programs in that year on Revelation. In fact, we
literally taught on the Horsemen of Revelation pretty much all summer. You may
remember that we were seeing how the developments pictured by the "ride" of each
of the Horsemen would progress from that year, and since then we have often
pointed to the mid-decade period that we are in right now as a time of intense
unrest and war, especially in the Middle East. Now, we are seeing these events
right on schedule.
As I write there is a military "exercise" going on in Saudi
Arabia under Saudi leadership involving 20 Arab and/or Sunni Muslim nations
training as a coalition together. This is the largest such Muslim coalition
exercise ever, involving 150,000 to 300,000 troops. While these troops are
massed in northern Arabia, South of Syria, they are allied with Turkey to the
North of Syria. Although called an "exercise" the possibility exists that these
forces could converge on Syria from both sides in a massive ground assault, in a
huge flood of troops. This exercise is meant to intimidate the Shi'a Muslim
block, led by the Iranians in Syria, with Russia doing the heavy hitting against
Syrian rebels who are seeking to oust Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad. In a nutshell, the Sunni
coalition wants Assad out while Russia and the Shiites want Assad to remain in
office. The block that ultimately wins this struggle hopes to be established as
the dominant Muslim force in the Middle East. However this develops, more death
and destruction in the Middle East is a certainty.
As the Middle East events have continued to unfold we often hear
from our long-time members and friends, who have been listening to us predicting
this for a long time. For example, one brother recently wrote:
"Thank you very -very much for your recent and timely emails
concerning the Exodus and our need to prepare ourselves. And I remember four
or five years ago you were informing 'us that the Muslim nations would be
attacking one another and sure enough, they are!"
Thank you Brother, for remembering!
While the Middle East is on center stage right now, the Red Horse
Rider is not slacking in the rest of the world in 2016. We want to take a survey
of that big picture in tonight's message. People often see a connection between
the Red Horse and nukes, so we want to look into that threat, right up to today.
Really, we are living in a time of unprecedented unrest in the
world, the worst so far in the 21st century. As Scripture says of the Red Horse
"..it was given power to take peace from the earth.."
As foreboding as all of this may be, there is more to come before
we arrive at the Tribulation period. As Messiah said of this period;
"You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you arenít
troubled, for all this must happen, but the end is not yet." Matthew 24:6
Yes friends, "all this must happen" but we need not be
troubled by it. Instead, we see it as a road sign, pointing on toward the
Remnant Exodus, then the final end-time events, and finally - the return of
Truly, we are living in exciting days!
Blessing and Shalom,

Largest ever US-South Korea military drill planned as a 'warning to
The joint US-South Korean
exercises scheduled for March will be largest military drills ever staged on
the Korean Peninsula and are both a warning to Pyongyang and an effort to
reassure the jittery public in the South.
The parallel Key Resolve
and Foal Eagle exercises are scheduled to commence on March 7, with the
field-training exercises that make up Foal Eagle lasting until April 30. The
drills will involve 15,000 US troops, twice the number of previous years,
and will serve to demonstrate Washington's firepower.
The US will deploy a combat
aviation brigade to South Korea for the duration of the manoeuvres, as well
as a mobile US Marine brigade, an aircraft carrier and its attendant fleet,
a nuclear-powered submarine and aeriel tankers to refuel fighter aircraft.
South Korea will commit
some 290,000 personnel, including special forces, more than double its usual
deployment for the annual drills.
The joint exercises will
commence just weeks after North Korea carried out its fifth underground
nuclear test and launched a rocket in what analysts claim was a disguised
test of long-range ballistic missile technology.
In an additional shot
across Pyongyang's bows, the drills will for the first time simulate
scenarios in which the regime of Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has
exercises will require the US and South Korean forces to react to war
breaking out, operations in and around Pyongyang and the recovery of "key
facilities that are located deep within North Korea", a Defence Ministry
official told The Korea Herald.
North Korea's two rocket
facilities are in the far north of the country, while analysts believe that
many of its military assets are also concealed in networks of tunnels and
bunkers close to the Chinese border.
This year's amphibious
manoeuvres - known as the Ssangyong exercises - will be larger and more
elaborate than ever before, with 7,000 US troops practicing coming ashore
aboard Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft and from landing craft from the USS New
As well as sending a
message to Pyongyang, the exercises are designed to reassure the South
Korean public of their security, said Rah Jong-yil, a former head of South
Korean intelligence and an expert on the regime in Pyongyang.
"Recent events here have
made South Korean people feel a little insecure, especially the rapid
development of the North's nuclear and missile programmes, so the exercises
are a welcome sign of Washington's guarantee of the alliance", he told The
North Korea is expected to
express its displeasure at the drills through its state media. In previous
years, Pyongyang has described the exercises as the prelude to a pre-emptive
nuclear strike "to infringe on the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK".
