Dear Friends, Is the prophetic clock ticking and this sin-cursed world rushing head long toward the ultimate accounting or what? Sodomites are more hostile, government out of control and jails are ready for Bible believers. One would get the opinion that Washington D.C. just wants to see how far they can push the long suffering God. Yet “ Thee, O LORD, do I hope.” Dear saint of God, do not fret yourself. He is our refuge and strength. All His promises are sure. Stand fast in the faith of our Lord and Saviour and continue to be and do what He has commanded. Your redemption draweth nigh.

The Gates Hell Does any Bible believer, may I narrow that even more with every King James Bible believer, not understand the urgency to be vigilant, sober and equipped with the whole armor of God? We must take the lead and do battle with darkness. Not being fearful of life, it is our responsibility to be a watchman and with wisdom take the necessary precautions to protect our families and churches. Christian Law Association has some excellent materials for Pastors and ministries. May the following be a heads up to understand the times we are living. Security in the Power of God In light of current events and society’s ever changing norms, ministry safety is a very real and important issue. Several legal factors must be considered in order for a 4•The Voice in the Wilderness - August 2015 Virtual Edition of

minstry to adequately evaluate and develop a safeguard plan that is both preventative and proactive. What can we do to safeguard our ministry? In recent years, our attorneys have received an alarming number of these questions. In almost every case we are asked the following questions: • Should our church allow concealed or open carry of firearms? • Should our church provide armed security? • What can we do to protect our Christian School? • Should our church allow sex offenders to attend?

A Remnant Shall Remain Prior to the Rapture, I believe the redeemed will face persecution from a malignant, Christ-rejecting world. Though I understand the Scriptures to teach believers will not face “The Tribulation,” I do believe we will experience the malevolent hatred of a Satanically energized world until we are caught away. World events are in a seemingly cascading mode. Wars and rumors of wars, natural disasters, economic collapse, corruption at high levels, the disintegration of the nuclear family, violence on every hand, all these and more portend a future rife with crises none of us have ever experienced. True believers are going to be a distinct remnant, hated not only by the world of unbelievers but by the apostate church. Our lot does not appear to be tranquility and halcyon days but danger and scorn. We must be wise in the midst of such hostile times, but primarily, we must be found faithful and loyal to our Saviour and His cause. We cannot change world events, but we can be faithful servants, busy at our post, strengthening those things which remain. by Pastor Ron Williams, Hepzibah House 6•The Voice in the Wilderness - August 2015 Virtual Edition

News Bits FROM HERE AND THERE China Watch - China is the largest buyer of gold bullion and gold mines according to Bloomberg. Counting the amount of gold in their unmined land, China insists the yuan is more trustworthy than the US dollar. The Chinese are playing both ends against the middle. With the US owing $1.5 trillion in loans to China, the Chinese are hedging against losses by uniting with other nations to destroy the US dollar. The big players called the BRICS are made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. - Prophetic Observer, Bob Glaze Iran Deal Threat - Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized the Iran nuclear deal at the “Stop the Iran Deal Rally,” hosted by the Tea Party Patriots on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. The rally was held just as Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei released new comments on Twitter bashing Israel and the U.S. “We are led by very, very stupid people,” said Trump...he also pointed to new comments made Wednesday by Khamenei, who posted on Twitter that Israel “will not see next 25 years.” Khamenei also retweeted the frequent Iranian reference to the U.S. as the “Great Satan.” [Trump said] “It just came out a little while ago, he said Israel will not exist in 25 years...He also said very very strongly that this is the end of our dealings with the United States...So, they rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools, and now they’re back to being who they are. They don’t want Israel to survive... with incompetent leadership like we have right now, Israel will NOT survive,” he said. In his own speech at the rally, Cruz said that supporters of the Iran nuclear deal will not be able to “wash” blood off their hands as a result of the consequences of the accord, which critics say will enable Iran to use sanctions relief to sponsor terrorism across the Middle East. “Any commander-in-chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared to stand up on Jan. 20, 2017, and rip to shreds this catastrophic deal,” Cruz said. Cruz called the deal “the single greatest national security threat facing America.” Building A Fence - The Israeli security cabinet has approved building an 18.64-mile fence along the Jewish state’s southern border with Jordan. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “It joins the fence that we built along the length of our border with Sinai, which blocked the entry of illegal migrants into Israel and--of course--the various terrorist movements. This step also joins the fence that we built on our border on the Golan Heights.” The new fence will be built completely within Israeli territory and was approved in coordination with the Jordanian government.
