The Eastern GateDr. David Reagan is the host of Lamb & Lion’s weekly television program called “Christ in Prophecy.” This program is broadcast nationally on seven Christian networks which combined have access to 80 million homes in the US. And through DayStar, the program is available to every country in the world. The program deals with the prophetic significance of national and international events.

This post is a long time favorite and asks the question: Why is the Eastern Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem closed, and what does it have to do with Bible prophecy?

The Daily Beast: “The beginning of wisdom for Americans is to realize that the Arab world is tumbling through an earthquake, and that no mere policy can stop it, let alone shape it. At this stage, Washington can only prepare for the aftermath. The natural American impulse is to search for solutions, for policies that can prevail against these upheavals. But for years to come, Washington will have to lower its sights from solutions to more limited and defensive measures, in effect towards simply halting the jihadi menace. Even then, Americans should expect further jihadi triumphs.

Over time, however, Washington can cultivate new cooperative arrangements with the few stable and similarly inclined or threatened nations – Kurdistan, Israel, Jordan, Turkey and, shockingly, Iran. And if the new Egyptian rulers can be encouraged to stabilize and somewhat democratize their ancient land, Egyptians too would be a key to a better future.”

Opinion: The writer of the above is Leslie H. Gelb, a former correspondent for The New York Times and current President Emeritus and Board Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Gelb is Jewish.

Gelb gives us a look at secular progressive thinking and why the P5+1 are negotiating with Iran.  The CFR sees the United States as arrogant, self-indulgent, hypocritical, inattentive and unwilling or unable to engage in cross-cultural dialogue. We need to pay attention to what they’re saying.

This type of thinking will enable Iran to get the nuclear weapons toward which they are openly and feverishly working, and take the world to the wars of the end of this age.

The CFR is what Dinesh D’Souza classifies as one of the groups that think America is what is wrong with the world; that America built its power on the backs of the poor and indigent and it is time to give that wealth back. The CFR, like so many other progressive groups both Republican and Democrat, would also classify Bible-believing Christians as right wing fanatics.

Three thousand years ago another Jewish thinker, the wisest of all, had a different thought on the beginning of wisdom:

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” Proverbs 9:10. (His name was Solomon)

(see chapter 6, Bible Prophecy 101, front page of this website)

According to Oswald Chambers, “Many of us who call ourselves Christians are not devoted to Jesus Christ.”

That is absolutely true.  In the Gospel of Luke 14:26 he writes that, “If any man come to Me, and hate not…  he cannot be My disciple.” 

We cannot be Christ’s disciples unless we love Christ better than anything in this world, and are willing to part with that which we may have to, in order to keep following Him.
