Time of Reckoning Has Come
Come now and let us reason together, says YEHOVAH. Isaiah 1:18
The Iranian Threat That Causes Fear in the Land of the Living
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): In article “Evidence grows that Iran is stationing missiles directed at Israel” by Jonathan Spyer on 17 May 2019 by Jerusalem Post, the author reports that in a speech delivered on 9 May 2019, the secretary-general of the Hezbollah Nujaba, an Iran-supported Shia militia in Iraq, delivered a series of threats against Israel which by itself is an indication of the growing involvement of Iranian preparations for conflict with Israel.
Further, the article quotes Reuters from August 2018: “Reuters report on August 31, 2018 was the first to note the concerns of US and Israeli intelligence agencies. The article detailed the transfer by the IRGC’s Qods Force of Zelzal, Fateh-110 and Zolfaqar missiles and launchers to western Iraq. The Zolfaqar has a claimed range of 750 km – putting Tel Aviv within its range if it was deployed in this area. The distance from al-Qaim on the Iraqi Syrian border to Tel Aviv is 632 km.”
Jonathan Spyer makes the conclusion, “The ability of Iran to operate a de facto contiguous line of control across Iraq, and thence to Syria, Lebanon and the borders with the Golan Heights is thus not under serious doubt. It appears that Teheran has begun to station SRBMs along this route, directed at Israel, and crewed by the Qods force-directed militia franchises – an arrangement intended to provide Iran with deniability in the event of their being used.”
Now, with that being said, we may recall the end-time prophecy concerning the Iranian threat from a land of Shinar encompassing today Iraq and Iran. Shinar together with Syria and Lebanon constitutes a single arena under the control of Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). This Iranian threat becomes even more disturbing in the light of the recent attacks on the Fujairah port in the UAE and the Aramco East-West pipeline in Saudi Arabia and the threat of the mullahs to resume the enrichment of uranium for their missiles. For more insight into the prophecy read the article “Wicked Fire in a Flying Roll Prophesied in Zechariah 5” posted by Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) on 29 October 2016.
Jerusalem Council and How Its Decision is Distorted by the Church
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): According to the main stream doctrine of the Christianity, the Jerusalem Council exempted the Christians from observing the Law and recommended only four prohibitions for them to observe. Part of this doctrine is that the apostles abolished circumcision of the Christians because they are not “under the Law”. However, if that were the intent of the apostles, why did they continue to be Law-observant for decades after the resurrection of the Messiah if “the Law was nailed on the cross”?
This article will touch the nerve to prove the contrary that (1) the exemption of the Christians from observing the Law was not the intent of the apostles, (2) circumcision was no issue for the Jerusalem Council, and (3) the matter the apostles discussed was how the non-native believers in Yeshua to be fully and correctly integrated in the Commonwealth of Israel, or the metaphor apostle Shaul used in Romans 11: “the olive tree of Israel”.

The Palestinian Terrorism Then and Now and The Real Independence of Israel
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): The Palestinian terrorism never ceases. It will continue unless Israel learns the lesson the forefathers learned the hard way in the time of Joshua: the more land Israel gives the more Palestinian terrorism we will see in the land.
As of writing this article approximately 700 rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza by the Palestinians since the violence began on Shabbat morning, 4 May 2019, going towards the 71st anniversary of the Independence of Israel. In the first two days, the death toll among the Israelis reached four and many other wounded, not to count the psychological trauma.
In return of the fire, the IAF (Israeli Air-force) responded by hitting approximately 320 military targets in Gaza and soon the Palestinian terrorists announced “ceasefire” which, as in many other cases, had no gains for Israel, as it has never had. How is this relating to the time of Joshua? Read more.
The Former Rain and the Latter Rain of the Messiah
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): “The former rain and the latter rain” is the designation of the coming of Yeshua the Messiah for His first and second comings. His first coming “the former rain”, although highly expected, was obscured in the Torah and the Prophets for a good reason. Not even the principalities of this world knew about it; if they had known, they would have never crucified Him.
However, His second coming “the latter rain” is plainly revealed in the Scripture and is not secret to anyone. Yeshua Himself said, “You will find for Me in the Torah and in the Prophets …” Read more
Revealing the Name of Yeshua Secretly Guarded by the Rabbis
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): There is a secret jealously guarded by the Rabbis of blessed memory throughout the centuries that Yeshua is the long-anticipated Messiah of Israel about whom Mosheh prophesied at Mount Nebo.
And YHVH said to me, ‘What they have spoken is good. I shall raise up for them Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him.’ (Deu 18:17-19)
In this article, we will continue to study this controversial for many Jews and Christians issue: “Did Israel Reject the Messiah?” Read more
Did Israel Reject the Messiah?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): The Sages understood that the coming of the Messiah was due two thousand years ago when He was expected to initiate the Messianic era. Tanna debe Eliyahu reads: The world is to exist six thousand years. In the first two thousand there was desolation; two thousand years the Torah flourished; and the next two thousand years is the Messianic era, but through our many iniquities all these years have been lost [He should have come at the beginning of the last two thousand years; the delay is due to our sins].
Note here: the delay is due to our sins. The Sages also understood that His coming would depend on two conditions, namely, whether or not Israel would repent. The Apostolic writings undoubtedly supply further evidence in support of the expectations of the first coming of the Messiah in that time. Yochanan (John the Baptist) was even asked whether he was the awaited Messiah.
From these and other Rabbinical sources, we can conclude that the Jews in the first century Judea were expecting the Messiah to come in the time. They were eagerly expecting His coming, because that was what Mosheh said to the children of Israel that YHVH their Elohim shall raise up for them a prophet like him from their brothers and whatever He would say they should hear.
So, did Israel reject the Messiah when He indeed came? Read more
Breaking News: U.S. President Trump recognized the Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): In a historical act of justice, on Thursday, 21 March 2019, the U.S. President Donald Trump declared recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. The man who upset the whole world with his unprecedented election as President of the United State of America, upset the world once more. President Trump declared what was right thing to declare. President Trump recognized Jerusalem as a capital of the State of Israel and now the Golan Heights, which was once a part of the land of tribes of Gad, Reuven, and Menashsheh.
The U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 of 22 November 1967 requires “Withdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict” and “Termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgment of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force”. If Israel is to return the conquered lands in defensive wars against the hostile Arabs, how much more it is obligatory for all U.N. Security Council members to return the lands they occupied in offensive wars. If the State of Israel cannot keep the booty of war, nor can the world powers, unless the world is governed by double standards. (Read more)
The Real Purim many do not know
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): Purim is celebrated on the 14th of Adar, per the Rabbinical calendar. Purim along with Hanukkah are not of the appointed times of YHVH listed in Leviticus 23, nevertheless, it has its own significance. Today millions of Jews celebrate Purim as a deliverance from a certain Holocaust. The Jews in Persia were on the brink of extermination and had Mordecai and Queen Esther done nothing or not enough, all Jews would have perished in the Holocaust. Purim commemorates the victory the exiled Jews in Persia had over their foes by wearing bizarre costumes and participating in a drunken feast in a way that pretty much resembles the American Halloween. On Purim, the Jews drink until they can no longer tell the difference between Mordechai, the hero in the Book of Esther, and the evil Haman. However, wearing those costumes and drinking alcohol are more of modern imitation rather than any historical tradition. Purim 2019 begins Wednesday night, 20 March 2019 and continues through 22 March in Israel, but for the Jews who are still in exile until 21 March.
However, is Purim all about childish plays and making fancy “hamantaschen” cookies named after Haman, one of the world’s most notorious anti-Semite? Because, this is how Purim is celebrated today in Israel. Is there anything more to it than that? Is there anything that we have not seen, which we were supposed to see? To learn more we need to know more about the untold truth of the real Purim and the author of the Book of Esther.
Is a Vow a Moral Justification for Human Sacrifices?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): Human sacrifices are clearly an abomination to YHVH. There is nothing more repulsive, repugnant, abhorrent, and abominable to YHVH than human sacrifices, and the most vicious of them: the murder of unborn human beings. Abortion, the politically correct term for this hideous act of taking a human life, is nothing less than another form of human sacrifices to the evil one.
There is a story in the Bible in which Yiftach a judge of Israel faced with the dilemma to break his vow before YHVH or to sacrifice his daughter—the dilemma he must not have been into. What Yiftach did is a great deal of debate—did he keep his vow and killed his daughter, or he spared her? Read more.
The Real Face of Abortion America Must See It to Believe it!
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): Abortion in the United States has been, and remains, a controversial issue in United States culture and politics since the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade in 1973. Everyone that kills an unborn baby is actively prolonging the Almighty’s anger and delaying the coming of His Messiah. This is what the Rabbis say in Midrash: “If you destroy one life, you have destroyed the whole universe”.
And this is what the Supreme Judge of the Universe says on the vicious murder of innocent human beings. Read more.
Why Leviticus is the Most Important Book in the Bible
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): Why is it customary in the rabbinical tradition for the Jewish children to begin learning the Torah of YHVH with Leviticus rather than Genesis? Because, Leviticus is the most important book in the Bible? And who said so? Is it just customary, or Leviticus (Vayikra) has something that we do not know? Read more.
The War of Gog of Magog and the Burden of Damascus
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM): The burden of Damascus in Isa 17:1 clearly says that the city will be no more; it will be a heap of ruins and appears to be hanging like a Damoclean sword over the city with nothing to save it. Many end-time prophecy commentators see the burden of Damascus to be fulfilled through a nuclear destruction, but are there any proofs of such a conclusion? And when will the desolation of Damascus take place, who will do it, and why? Read more.
