“”When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman,
3, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,
4, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.
5, He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.
6, But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman”s hand.” (Ezekiel 33:2-6)
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Pastor Mike Taylor;
Each of us are watchmen on the wall. If you stand behind a pulpit or preach to a congregation in whatever media you use, you have a responsibility to warn those who are in danger of hell fire and all that it represents. God does not send anyone to hell, as it is a decision that each of us must make, but the Word of God must start with men and women who are commissioned by God to take the Word of Truth to those who are in their sins.
Whether a minister believes he is a watchman or not, he is commissioned by God to spread the Gospel to the lost. He is to preach the penalty of sin. He is to abandon a feel good “gospel”, prosperity gospel, or a social speech of humanism and being just a “good citizen”. This won’t save anyone. It will not warn those who are walking the wide road and gate to destruction, but will only placate them that they are OK…they are not OK, as they do not have Jesus in their hearts. It is a minister’s job to take the message of salvation to his congregation, his community and the rest of the world.

Prepping for ‘Mr. Fix-It’
Society is being prepped for the Antichrist, and as prophecy-loving believers try to warn, the words are falling on a lot of deaf ears.
The stage is being set for a closing act. The players are getting into their proper positions. Heads of state are meeting to plot and scheme and deny even more rights. In places like Australia, Lithuania, and Austria, good people are enemies of the state even though they are upstanding citizens.
World leaders have no comprehension they are majoring in minors. To them, it makes perfect sense to obsess over carbon emissions. During the Tribulation, this will fade from their memories as they cope with Seals and Trumpets and Bowls. These will spark “climate change” they cannot imagine!
Most receiving this newsletter are “watchmen.” Ezekiel 33 tells us that if you don’t warn, the blood is on your hands, so you cannot be silent.
Brace yourself to be shocked daily by things you read and watch. Satan is getting more active, and wickedness is rising, so God’s people must shine more brightly.
But for the believer, a glorious event will happen soon. It is known as the Rapture of the Church. It is any day. Any hour. Any minute. So don’t grow weary!
And yes, if a believer is a Rapture skeptic, they get the surprise of their life someday soon. Then you’ll have the privilege of saying, “I told you so.”
Won’t that be a glorious day?

“God promises this in the book of Revelation, and He also gives us a promise of global peace. The Antichrist, however, will bring pseudo peace. During the first three-and-a-half years of the seven-year Tribulation, he will come across as a good guy. But in reality, he will be a bad guy. And the Scriptures say that he will use peace to deceive many. Ultimately, once Antichrist is taken out of the way, God will bring global peace.”

The Beast / Prince that ‘Confirms’ the seven (7) year false ‘peace treaty’:
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people [Palestinians, Arabs/Muslims] of the prince [Beast, Antichrist] that shall come shall destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [Third Temple]; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he [Prince, Beast, Antichrist] shall confirm [verify] the covenant [‘Normalization’, Abraham Accords] with many [MENA, Arabic/Muslim Countries] for one week [7 years]: and in the midst [3.5 Years] of the week [7 Years] he [Prince, Beast, Antichrist] shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate [The Prince, Beast, Antichrist places himself in the ‘Holy of Holies’ in the Third Temple and declares himself to be god and to be worshipped as such, under penalty of death]. (Emphasis, interpretation and discernment mine.)
Isaiah 28:14-19 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [Jews] and against Jerusalem.
And ‘in that day’ will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Revelation 6:5 And when he had opened the third (3) seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Commentary; balances are symbolic for economic transactions and ‘prices’ for things such as wheat and barley grain, bread, olive oil, wine, various food commodities. These are common throughout the world and are considered by most as the ‘staples of life or living.’
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
Commentary; The world will have reached a point of ‘climate apartheid’ where only the wealthy can afford basic food resources in the face of fatal droughts, famine, locust swarms and heatwaves, while the rest of the world suffers. Only the extreme rich can afford expensive cooking oil, baked pastries and loaves of multi-grain breads, fancy wines and related luxurious food stuffs. Yet, the ‘average peasant’ has to work for an entire day’s wages just to be able to buy enough wheat to make a loaf of bread. Great and severe income inequality is rampant worldwide. The ‘few’ own a massive disproportion of the earth’s wealth and bounty. Billionaires vs billions of poor. The ‘Crown Prince’ owns 60,000 (6) tonnes of wheat in his store houses or graineries while the few grain silos in the Port of Lebanon were destroyed and its people are threatened with expensive grain shortages that require humanitarian assistance.
‘See thou hurt not the oil and the wine’; Israel’s world-class wineries in Judean Hills a must-see for discerning connoisseurs. “Beginning with 20th-century Zionism, there was a growth of vineyards specifically for the production of wine. It was coming back to a land that ‘knows’ how to grow grapes for wine.” Israel’s wine production is doing very nicely, thank you! (Despite droughts, famines, fires, bitter cold and tsunamis around the rest of the world.’
BY LAURA BEN-DAVID JNS January 14, 2022
(January 14, 2022 / JNS) People may find it hard to believe that tiny little Israel has more than 300 wineries. And these wineries differ in almost every possible way—not just in the variety of the grape and the type of wine, but in the climate, altitude, technology and just everything else. Vineyards are grown from the snowy Golan Heights in the north to the arid Negev Desert in the south. As such, the wines all vary greatly, and everyone—ranging from wine connoisseurs to the casual tourist—owes it to themselves to taste, enjoy and experience them firsthand.
Further, while some may think that Israel is somewhat of a late bloomer to the international wine scene, in reality, it has thousands of years of history of winemaking, albeit with a gap of a few hundred years.
Talia Yashuv of the Hebrew University Institute of Archeology, explained this anomaly in the rich heritage of wine-making in Israel, saying “there’s a gap in the history of several hundred years during the time of the Turkish Empire. That time is missing from the Israeli wine culture, unlike Europe, which has no gap. However, beginning with 20th-century Zionism, there was a growth of vineyards specifically for the production of wine. It was coming back to a land that ‘knows’ how to grow grapes for wine.” (NWN; ‘When the fig tree is mature’)
Indeed, while touring Bin Nun, the first of the four wineries visited on a trip arranged by Israel’s Ministry of Tourism, we saw ancient wine presses from the times of the Holy Temple. While exact dating is difficult, the appearance of ritual baths alongside the wine presses are clear evidence of both the fact that they were Jewish wine presses and the need for ritual purity of the workers. This estimate puts the presses at more than 2,000 years old, the latest time that the Second Temple still stood.
The tour focused on the Judean area—the foothills between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem that astonishingly has 50-plus wineries in that region alone. Visitors to Israel don’t even need to travel far to experience world-class wineries; rent a car and without even leaving the central area, you can cover numerous wineries in one day. (Just be sure to have a designated driver!)
Bin Nun Winery, in the Gezer region, was founded by Danny Yaniv and Eddy Gandler in 2012. Yaniv, a medical doctor in family practice, told us that when he bought the place, it was full of thorns. “I was a doctor,” he explained. “I had no idea how to grow wine. But I studied chemistry and physics. And I studied wine production.”
Along with Gandler and winemaker Itzak Lotan, they set out to create quality boutique wines, focusing on producing red wine with a classic French and Italian orientation while blending varieties. The varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Marselan, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese grapes from the Bin Nun vineyard, plus Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah in Giv’at Yesga’ahu in the Judean Hills.
The wine production begins in stainless-steel tanks imported from Italy; it then continues in French oak barrels. These kosher wines are excellent, and at 40,000 bottles a year, including export to the United States and other countries, it can be said that this boutique winery is truly delivering.
Hand-picked grapes better than machine-picked?
The tour continued to the lovely Bravdo Winery in Carmel Yosef, where we were introduced to their delightful wines by marketing manager Hadar Bravdo Elroy. Unlike the founders of Bin Nun, who learned their trade in order to make wine, the founders of Bravdo were already internationally renowned specialists in vineyard-growing and winemaking, and decided to open a winery to implement their knowledge in wines of their own.
Professors Ben Ami Bravdo and Oded Shoseyov, both from Hebrew University, founded this winery, where agriculture and science meet the wine-making process.
Hadar Bravdo Elroy, the daughter of founder Bravdo, enjoyed sharing stories and anecdotes, as well as informing us about the vineyard, the wines and their process.
“There is a myth,” said Hadar, “that hand-picked grapes are better than machine-picked. It’s romantic, but it’s simply not true.”
Perhaps that’s a good thing because, while in 2001 they started with 2,400 bottles, they are now producing more than 100,000 bottles a year! That would be a lot of work if they were still hand-picking all those grapes.
They became officially kosher in 2009 and produce nine (3×3) different types of wines, all completely produced on-site.
Next, we went to the Kadma Winery in Kfar Uriah, the only winery in Israel to use large clay casks (amphorae) in the wine-producing process, reviving ancient traditions from the region and combining them with modern technology.
Founder Lina Slotzkin told us about her roots in Georgia, where she moved mountains to obtain the clay casks. She explained the different processes using the jug method.
“Fermentation in the casks is slower, more gentle and more even,” she explained. “It takes longer. While in an ordinary winery the fermentation would take about 20 days, our method takes six weeks. The wine is then pressed and returned to the jugs. Micro-oxidation that takes place is very different from that in stainless steel.”
Of course, the unusual-looking, 500-liter clay casks are an attraction in and of themselves, and were, quite naturally, used in Kadma’s logo. The wine is not kosher.
The day ended with a tour of the Clos de Gat Winery, one of Israel’s most prestigious and one of the few chateau (estate) wineries, meaning they don’t buy their grapes elsewhere.
We were given the tour by sales and marketing director Gideon White, who explained the singular process employed at the winery, where massive stainless-steel milk tubs are used to make the wine because they use open vat fermentation and need a large surface area for oxygen to help fermentation, which takes seven (7) to 14 (7+7) days. Because of this open process, they keep everything closed and exceptionally clean.
Gideon explained that because the wine is not kosher, there are no restrictions on who can touch it so that the winemaker can handle the barrels and directly connect with the wine at any time. Thirty (3) percent of their wines are exported to the United States, the United Kingdom and even to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates—one of Israel’s ‘latest’ trading partners as a result of the 2020 Abraham Accords.
Revelation 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. (The BEAST will ‘enjoy’ his ‘bountiful banquet’ for 7 years, while the rest of the world starves to death).
8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).
Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.
Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man
Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
