Amir Tsarfati was born in Israel and has lived there most of his life. Since fulfilling his mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Force, he has continued as a major in the IDF Reserve. Amir has been a tour guide in Israel for the last twenty years, and served as chief tour guide of Sar El Tours and CEO of Sar El Tours and Conferences. In 2001, he became founder and president of Behold Israel – a non-profit organization which provides worldwide real-time access to reliable sources of news and information about Israel from within the powerful context of Bible history and prophecy.
Amir is married to Miriam, and together they have four children. His home overlooks the valley of Megiddo (Armageddon) which is a constant reminder of the call that the Lord has placed on him to teach from the Bible what God’s plans are for the end of times.
Behold Israel is a non-profit organization led by native Israeli Amir Tsarfati. Our mission is to provide reliable and accurate reporting on developments in Israel and the region. Amir’s live updates and teachings, based on God’s Written Word, sift out the truth on current events amidst global media bias against Israel.

I was recently sent a YouTube video of Jack Hibbs speaking to Don Stewart in a Biblical prophecy update in his series called “Happening Now”. I found this video quite enlightening and in line with Biblical prophecy and principles. For anyone interested in Biblical prophecy and wanting to know where we are in the prophetic timeline, these updates are quite insightful and eye opening. The latest video (as at the time of writing this article) is embedded below.

Below is an excerpt from his ministry’s website to provide more information about the ministry.
Have you listened to Jack Hibbs teach? Or watched him on TV? Well, if you have, it doesn’t take very long to figure out that Pastor Jack is passionate about life! That might be an understatement.
This passion comes out of his deep understanding that God, who came to earth in human skin, has through Jesus Christ provided the way, the truth and the life. Our relationship with God, broken because of our sin, can be restored through Him. Jesus said He came to give us “abundant” life. That’s real life done God’s way!
Our relationship with Christ and His instructions about the Christian life should impact every area of our being. That’s right! God’s Word – the Bible – speaks to the real life issues we all face. Depression. Joy. Suffering. Forgiveness. Peace. Fulfillment.
We trust that Real Life with Jack Hibbs is a place you will be encouraged. Listen to the daily radio programs featuring Pastor Jack’s teaching. Watch insightful interviews and discussions on our Real Life TV program. Take advantage of the resources we offer as you grow in your relationship with God.

One of my favourite quotes of Chuck Missler (1934 – 2018), which is also one on which his ministry (Koinonia House) was based, is about the Bible being an integrated message system from outside our 4 dimensional physical domain, which we experience.
“The Bible is 66 books written by 40 authors, written between 1446 B.C. & 90 A.D. But, now we discover that it is an integrated message system from outside our time and space domain.”Chuck Missler (1934 – 2018)
I share his belief that the entire Bible, including all the small details such as numbers, names and locations are included by the Holy Spirit’s intervention and design. The more you discover these hidden gems in Scripture, the stronger your faith will become in the fact that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. This is turn should increase your faith in Jesus Christ, since He is equated to the Word in John 1:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
John 1:1-3 (NKJV)
For the most part, when we get to the sections of Scripture that list genealogies, we generally skip past it or superficially read over it. One such genealogy is given in Genesis Chapter 5, named the “book of the generations of Adam” (Genesis 5:1). At a first glance this Chapter offers very little apart from historical facts regarding the family line from Adam through to Noah. However, if you do a little homework, you will be amazed to find a Messianic prophecy hidden within this specific genealogy; more specific, the names. For the most part, the meanings of the names are readily available in a good Bible concordance, such as The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, or Bible software that use such concordances or Hebrew dictionaries, such as e-Sword.
Now, let’s have a look at these names with their corresponding meanings in the order given in the text.
If we look at this grouping of names individually, we may rewrite the genealogy in an English list as below:
- Placed (or Appointed)
- Praise of God (or Blessed of God)
- Descend or come down
- Train-up (or teach)
- His death shall bring forth
- The despairing
- Peace or rest.
Finally, let’s rewrite this list considering this grouping of names systemically:
Mankind was appointed mortal sorrow, but the blessed of God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring forth, for the despairing, rest (peace).
Here, in the beginning of the Old Testament, before Israel was founded, before Jesus walked on the Earth, long before the New Testament was penned, lies an example of how the Holy Spirit influenced history in such a way as to authenticate His Word through a prophecy within a genealogy. This specific prophecy, we now know, points to Jesus Christ. This is but one example of how God knows the end from the beginning.
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:Isaiah 46:10 (KJV)
God knows the end from the beginning, because His existence falls outside of time and space; He created time and space, therefore He far transcends our understanding.
This example should excite and inspire any Bible believing Christian. It should also give us hope and faith in God’s yet future promises in Scripture. For those who have not yet made a decision to follow Jesus, I encourage you to ask the difficult questions and search the Bible for answers.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV)
