A Wake Up Call !!

Latest Wake Up Call Update: December  2, 2022

The UN is the voice of nations across the four corners of the globe established by its Charter as replacement for the League of Nations on October 24, 1945 following World War II. 

The stated goal: maintain "peace and security."

Outside the UN building, there's a wall bearing an inscription from Isaiah 2:4:  "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.  Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore."

But the thing is, with the verse snippet, the UN totally missed the context of Isaiah's big picture.

The UN skipped past Isaiah 2:3 and a bit like a sermon that has to end before lunchtime, they took the message out of it's context. 

That verse outlines the God reason wars will end one day. Here's the message from the scroll:
And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of The LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths. 
For the Torah will go forth from Zion
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they learn war anymore." 
The full measure of this eternal message is that nations will not take up the swords of war when faithful people go to Jerusalem to learn to walk in the Torah walk of God's instruction in Jerusalem.

If you have read the words of another prophet by the name of Jeremiah, you may already know the alert from the UN's word's "peace and security" should take you from the first line of the UN Charter to the headlines of prophecy.

The reason... Israel is in the headlines becuase Israel is the vortex of the Bible.

In May 1948, a portion of the Promised Land was restored as the State of Israel like the birth of an infant following the turbulent history and horrors of the tribulation known around the world as the Holocaust. 

Incredibly, the rebirth process started in November 1947 at the UN before the Jewish state was reborn in the fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8.

The reality is the UN did not establish Jerusalem or Israel. The Almighty God of Israel did. By the way, He does not change and He keeps His promises. As uin the past, The LORD God has used men to accomplish His purposes. 

In 1967, following the Six Day War Yet Jerusalem was restored to the State of Israel. Since then, most of the international community including the UN has sought to delegitimize and even criminalize Almighty God's land covenant for Israel and Jerusalem, its capitol city. They do this by drawing cartoon colored lines on a manmade political map.

Because of that, peace and security will not come by UN schemes, dark political fantasies. Pace and security will not come by global media campaigns either to divide the land of Israel. Peace and security will be brought to earth by the One and Only Almighty God of Israel in His own time on His calendar:
"Do not be afraid, Jacob my servant;
do not be dismayed, Israel.
I will surely save you out of a distant place,
your descendants from the land of their exile.
Jacob will again have peace and security,
and no one will make him afraid." Jeremiah 46:27
The Apostle Paul borrowed from Jeremiah's prophetic words, and you can read his explanation of the prophecy for yourself in his first letter to the Thessalonians. Take a look at this and keep in mind the seasons are God's appointments, the moedim:
"About the times and the seasons: Brothers and sisters, you do not need anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. When they say, “Peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in the dark, for this day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or the darkness."
Do you see the hidden warning in the media's frenzy about dividing Israel for "peace and security?" 

The truth is dividing Israel for "peace and security" with a Palestinian State is a demolition plan for the men and nations hat plot against the Bible.

If you are a two-state proponent are you paying attention?

You should be... under Rome's Empire of iron rule almost 2,000 years ago, the Middle East from Iraq to Syria and Turkey was as it is today, in chaos infused with aggressive, antisemitic oppression based on a false claim over the Promised Land.

Rome sought to drive the Jewish people from Jerusalem, take down the city of Zion and divide the land as its own after the Bar Kochba revolt in Judea. They even renamed it. The Romans, like Hitler were as antisemitic as you can get, they renamed the land they occupied as if they owned it, calling it Syria Palaestina on their empire maps. The Romans adopted it from Philistia, the name given by Greek writers to the land of the Philistines, the ancient enemies of Israel. 

Before the revolt in 135AD, the Romans destroyed The Temple and much of Jerusalem and the City of David in 70AD in their attempt to for ever sever the Jewish people from their God given land. The Romans butchered and murdered. 

The history books anyone can all read tell us that after the mass murders and destruction, the Roman Empire collapsed. It still sits only as a memory in the dust of antiquity and history books, but Israel, tiny Israel survives and thrives today as a resurrected nation.

Today's chaos and terror is not by Caesar's rule carried out by Centurions and their local recruits. The dark shadows surrounding Jerusalem today have splintered from the UN's Palestinian status upgrade as a trumpet "wake up call" for all Israel, both of Judah and those grafted-in to the faith of Abraham to know the times and seasons that Paul wrote about to the Thessalonians long ago.

I am expanding today on a commentary that I posted in a Prayer Alert on November 29, 2012. That post remains as a watchman's shout over Jerusalem described in my post Zechariah's Vision and the Quartet.
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” Isaiah 62:6-7
In case you didn't know it, the "United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly has endorsed a Palestinian Authority bid to upgrade its UN status to a “non-member observer state.”

The men that call themselves Palestinians sought this upgrade in status despite stiff opposition.

Here's the stately thing about a State: according to Britannica, "The state is a form of human association distinguished from other social groups by its purpose, the establishment of order and security; its methods, the laws and their enforcement; its territory, the area of jurisdiction or geographic boundaries; and finally by its sovereignty. The state consists, most broadly, of the agreement of the individuals on the means whereby disputes are settled in the form of laws." 

There is no Palestinian  law, order or security. Their methods or law is child abuse in their so-called enforcement of order and security.

The so-called Palestinian leaders fund and reward terror with pensions as the PA pays monthly stipends to Palestinian Arab families whose jihad youth carry Philistine style terror attacks against peaceful Jewish citizens. Jihad terrorism and violence is taught in kindergarten and elementary schools as textbooks promote hatred for all Jews whether by stone-throwing, stabbings, ramming cars into Jewish pedestrians or suicide bombings.

The PA brainwashes the UN and indoctrinates children like ammunition to seek Martyrdom in a chosen by Allah death sentence that the PA teaches will bring honor, fame, glory and money to their family when they carry out terror attacks against Israeli citizens. No matter where on the planet it happens, everyone knows a terror attack will eventually mean the terrorist will be killed.

No need to believe me about the PA schemes from the pit of hell, even the US Congress documents the facts. The first Senate Hearing was in October 2003, it is in Hearing 108-290.

Abbas sought non-member observer "state" category because he wants an upgrade with words from non-member "observer" to "entity" status. The leader with an expired term in office believes this upgrade with a word will allow the PA to participate in General Assembly debates which is why you see can see Abbas standing at the UN podium despite the fact Mahmoud Abbas’ four-year term expired years ago.

Seven years ago, on January 9, 2005, Abbas was elected president of the Palestinian Authority for a four-year term. He was never re-elected. In fact, he has led the postponement of election ever since. Can you imagine the President of the United States trying to pull that circus stunt off?

The proposed Abbas word upgrade by the "non-president" also means that the "non-state" can apply to join the International Criminal Court as well as other UN agencies as a non-member "observer."

So, this year one hundred thirty-eight (138) nations voted in favor of elevating the Palestinian "status." This nation number is well beyond the simple majority of the UN 193-member states that is required. There were 41 abstentions and just 9 “no” votes, which included the United States, Israel and Canada.

Speaking just ahead of Thursday’s vote on November 29, 2012, Palestinian Authority representative Mahmoud Abbas (actually Abu Mazen) urged the General Assembly to “issue a birth certificate of the reality of the State of Palestine” by UN member states supporting his statehood bid. 

This illegitimate birth event is critical in their attempt to divide Israel and Jerusalem. It will ultimately engage more "birth pains" of tribulation for the nations that seek to divide the land of promise.

It is no coincidence that Ramallah's own son, Abu Mazen (the Arabic name for Abbas) has requested that the UN issue this "birth" certificate on the day he chose to do so.

The vote was taken 65 years to the day after the 
UN General Assembly voted to recognize the Jewish State 
as a "Plan of Partition with Economic Union" 
on November 29, 1947. 
It was the 16th of Kislev, a Sabbath day.

Sixty five years have passed... perhaps you are saying, so what? 

Soon it will be the 70th year since Israel's rebirth was marked by a UN declaration on November 29, 1947. That day was Kislev 16 when the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 181. 

The 70th year anniversary will arrive on the calendar in 2016. It will be Kislev 16 on December 16, 2016 and the UN will likely be front and center in the headlines with Abbas. The day will also mark the 40th day after US elections for a new President.

Stay tuned to events regarding Jerusalem following that time as many nations will be focused on Jerusalem, our planet's prophetic vortex. After all, a generation is generally thought to be 70 years and it is the span of a king’s life.

Yeshua (Jesus) said this about the young fig tree we call Israel:
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door. Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
Psalm 90:10 tells us:
“The length of our days is seventy years – or eighty if we have the strength… ”
Isaiah 23:15 says:
"At that time Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of a king’s life."
Time spans are important. Those 70 years are a big deal. If you have read any of the letters from Paul, you recognize his warnings on "times and the seasons." He admonished: "But you, brothers, are not in the dark, for this day to overtake you like a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or the darkness. So then, we must not sleep like the rest, but we must stay awake and be serious."

Get serious, this is your wake up call. 

The Bible is real, the places are real, so if you have your eye on the UN General Assembly podium, take note because God's eyes are not focused there, they are bearing down on Jerusalem and the old city has an ancient enemy! Don't forget Ezekiel's prophecy either, Israel will not stand alone:
"You are to allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the foreigners residing among you and who have children. You are to consider them as native-born Israelites; along with you they are to be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel. In whatever tribe a foreigner resides, there you are to give them their inheritance,” declares the Sovereign Lord." Ezekiel 47:22-23 NIV
Zechariah warned that in the end, Jerusalem would become a city of conflict. Today, it is at the center of the so-called Israeli-Palestinian conflict, debated across the world. Jerusalem has again become the focus of world attention in its prominence as God's witness to the world.
On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it. Zechariah 12:3 
In June 1967, Israel took back Jerusalem as the city holding God's name at the end of the Six Day War, but in reality the war against the Jewish people that started in May 1948 and spiked in 1967 has never ended, only the battles have subsided from time to time. The Palestinian education system supports the jihad of antisemitism.

Importantly, in 1948 the battle that began in Israel on day 21 of the Omer Count following Passover. continued in 1967. June 5, 1967 was day 41 of the Omer Count and it was a Sabbath day:
On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a blazing pot in the midst of wood, like a flaming torch among sheaves. And they shall devour to the right and to the left all the surrounding peoples, while Jerusalem shall again be inhabited in its place, in Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:6
There are many other prophecies, these just scratch the surface, but keep your eyes on the Omer Count for upcoming battles and Gaza rockets. This is nothing new. Pharaoh chased after Israel during the Omer Count 3500 years ago. He chased them relentlessly until The Lord God of Israel split the sea.

It's the original message of the deceiver to fall for the idea that God does not mean what He says or that He changes His mind about Israel. Don't listen to that message any longer. It's a lie from a dark pit.

Most people don't realize the truth about the mountains of Israel in Judea and Samaria because they read biased media headlines and ignore God's promises in the most published book of all time, the Bible.

They do not read and believe the words of Jesus in Matthew 24 either. They think of Judea and Samaria as occupied, but the occupiers are the people that reject the God of Israel and the Jewish people that are there whether they know it or not to prepare the land for the return of their Messiah. 

Messiah's arrival will be like theirs, a return to the land and the battles will be ended by their savior.

Your wake up call is to know the problem is the boundary stones of the Bible have been moved in Israel, that's the goal of the Palestinian Authority that moves the boundary stones. A key component of the smoking fire-brand of the Palestinian Arab partition plan led from Ramallah is that Judea and Samaria will be broken by their jihad, that's why I call it a demolition plan.

Any Palestinian two state partition plan is designed to take away the Bible's deed to the allotted land of Judea and Samaria just north of Jerusalem and make it a Palestinian State. They already have a a two state solution in effect. Israel gave Gaza away and Gaza is a terrorist state. Two states is is not the vision Ezekiel was shown.

Today, the press no longer call it Judea and Samaria, like a straw man argument, the global media has reframed it in a disguise called "The West Bank."

In 1950, when Transjordan (now Jordan) annexed the area west of the Jordan River, many simply started calling the location the "West Bank" (of the river) and the name stuck. Just look at a map, today the term West Bank has been expanded to include a section of the Old City, they call it East Jerusalem inferring that it is still tied to Jordan.

The Palestinians want to take Jerusalem as their capital too. So, let's ask the big one, where does the "Palestinian Authority" fit into Biblical prophecy as they seek to divide the land promise and break the deed?

Most people don't realize the truth about the land deed of Israel because they ignore God's guidelines thinking they are old and done away with. They do not believe the words of Jesus in Matthew 24 either. They reject that Judea and Samaria are occupied by the Palestinians not Israelis. They ignore the fact that Israelis work side by side with peaceful Arabs while Palestinian terrorists yield knives and throw rocks as the Palestinian Authority seeks to move the boundary stones of promise, yet God says this:
“You shall not move your neighbor’s boundary mark, which the ancestors have set, in your inheritance which you will inherit in the land that the LORD your God gives you to possess." Deuteronomy 19:14
This promise for the boundaries of Israel comes with a dire warning from God:
"Cursed is anyone who moves their neighbor's boundary stone." Deuteronomy 27:17 
Two state is a bad state, one reason... the Palestinian Authority did not even exist in 1947. Surprised?

In fact, it wasn't until 1994, that they showed up after the 1993 Oslo Accord birth pain certificate was signed in Washington DC on September 13th. That signing followed the Madrid Conference in 1991 and the 1992 Madrid II Conference.

Did you know the Palestinian Authority was only formed as a temporary organization? The Conferences and Accords as well as the PA fail to disclose that key fact.

Not only did the Palestinian Authority not exist in 1947 nor any time before, the “Palestinians” are not home grown. Most Palestinians are ethnically Egyptian, Jordanian, Syrian or Iraqi aka they are Arab Muslim peoples from the lands that surround Israel and the PA leadership profoundly demonstrates this, the PA self-appointed leaders are outsiders.

Here's the proof:

Yasser Arafat was from Egypt, his mother was from Syria. The truth is he was expelled from Egypt as well as the areas we label as Jordan and Lebanon. When he landed in the so-called “West Bank” as an Egyptian exile, he rebranded himself as a Palestinian despite the fact that “Palestinians" were unknown in any history book before his arrival on the scene.

During the 400 year reign under the Ottoman Empire rule until 1917, the word Palestine simply described land area south of Syria. The name simply remained from a Roman occupation map when it was branded Syria Palæstina.  It was branded after the merger of Roman Syria and Roman Judaea some 1900 years ago.

It was the Egyptian Arafat that just 45 short years ago, began identifying the Arabs living in Israel as “Palestinians” publicly in 1967, and the media adopted his label. Homegrown Palestinians are Arafat's geo-political invention, a figment of his Egyptian imagination.

Not only that, none of the modern Arab nations we know today existed before their land divisions were drawn by British and French lines that were put on a map by the Sykes-Picot Agreement at the end of WWI. Saudi Arabia (1913), Lebanon (1920), Iraq (1932), Syria (1941), Jordan (1946), and Kuwait (1961) are all modern Arab state entities drawn by a shared British and French pen on paper.

In 1948, many thousands of Arabs were encouraged to evacuate by the Arab leaders of these new nations. They told them to leave. Israel never did that!

Then the Arab confederacy of Egypt, Transjordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq sent in their Sunni Muslim armies in with additional fighters from Saudi Arabia and Yemen with one common goal, to destroy the Jewish people. Most Arabs (around 600,000) fled from Israel by their own free will without ever seeing a soldier. At the same time Jewish people (around 800,000) living in the surrounding Arab countries were forced to flee and most returned to Israel. 

This modern exodus started in 1882 from the surrounding Arab lands as Jews returned to their ancient homeland suffering from Arab brutality, persecution and antisemitic pogroms that are promoted today by the Palestinian education system.

If we step back and take a look at the big picture of 3,500 years of Holy Scripture, we can see what was happening. Its described within the words of the prophets. These include not only Jeremiah, but Ezekiel, Obadiah and these words that were recorded by Isaiah:

"Then said the LORD to Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shear-jashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field; And say to him "Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be faint-hearted for the two tails of these smoking fire-brands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against thee, saying, Let us go up against Judah, and harass it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeal" Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within sixty five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people. And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established." Isaiah 7:3-9

If you think the first Jewish return only began after World War II you are mistaken. You are missing some vital information, it all started long before the November 29th UN vote to establish a land for the Jewish people. The Aliyah started 65 years before the 1947 declaration at the UN!!

The "First Aliyah" of five major returns to Israel began 130 years ago in 1882. 

That first Jewish return followed expulsions and pogroms. The first mass exodus back to Israel lasted five years as some 35,000 Jews from the Hovevei Zion and Bilu movements returned home from Russia, Eastern Europe and Yemen some two millennia after Roman Emperor Hadrian ordered the Jewish people out of Israel in 135AD as the Roman leader renamed the land "Palestine" to disguise the origin of its legal identity.

Take note of the timeline, because just two years 'after' the November 1947 UN vote, a 'sign' appeared if you will. It was a full lunar eclipse that arrived on April 13, 1949 on Passover and it repeated on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles on October 7, 1949. 

These two Feast Day bookend eclipses were re-cast again in the sky above in 1950. The first on Passover April 2, 1950 directly above Jerusalem and it extended over the Soviet Union and across Europe. The second blood moon eclipse occurred on the first day of Tabernacles on September 26, 1950 above the East Coast of North America, the exile home of the largest population of Jewish people on the planet at that time.

If you are thinking so what, bah humbug for heavenly signs and seasons, you need to know that between those Feast Days of The Lord, the Israeli law of return, the "Law of Aliyah" was established by the Knesset as the law of the land for Jewish immigration.

The "Law of Aliyah" is no ordinary Israeli law. It' timeline is marked with a Heavenly sign whether you saw it or not.

The Israeli law of return passed on July 5, 1950 (Tammuz 20) just six days after the midpoint of the two blood red moons above. Six days... it just so happens to be the creation day countdown for mankind.

Over the next 50 years, from 1950 to 2000, over 108,600 Jews would immigrate from North America and over 1,068,500 from Russia while more than 98,300 came from Great Britain and France to go up to Israel and literally live out the words from Jeremiah and Ezekiel.

These heavenly astronomical events will repeat again on God's coming Feast Days beginning on Passover 2014 and ending on Tabernacles 2015 as the 70th Session of the UN comes into view.

What are we to do? We must pray for the Jewish people and for the peace and restitution of Jerusalem as the PA with the help of a biased global media covertly institutionalizes lies, deception, division, terror, murder and martyrdom that is taught in Palestinian schools among its youth and funded by UN member nations including our own. 

Why pray? Palestinian terrorists... The only peace for Jerusalem they have planned is to tear it to pieces.

So do something!

Open your Bible and pray for peace and wholeness (Shalom) for the city like a light on a hill called Jerusalem. Pray that it will be rightfully restored. The amazing thing about dark times is that it is when the light of the world can shine brightest. 

Yeshua taught that a city on a hill cannot be hidden, nor can He remain hidden because Messiah lives in resurrection power:
"You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
According to the word of God, Israel is the "Promised Land" and because of the eternal covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, it still belongs to the people God calls Israel. Yet many people don't know this as they choose to believe God has changed His mind and forgotten His promises. 

The land areas in dispute today include Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip. There's something amazing about these areas when we take a look at the Hebrew names for them. They tie to salvation.
  • Judea = יהודה  
  • Samaria = שומרון
  • Gaza = עזה
  • Yeshua = ישוע
God has NOT changed His mind nor broken His promises. Despite the ignorance that assumes the promises of Hebrew Bible are old and done away with, replaced with a new two-state promise does not understand the whole earth still belongs to God and He does not change His mind:
"I the LORD do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed." Malachi 3:6
Because of God's promises and everlasting covenants, many Christians are waking up to who they are as God's children grafted into the Jewish root and faith of Israel. This is taught by the Apostle Paul in Romans. Check out chapter 9 for yourself, believe me there's no need to believe me.

If you call yourself a believer, this is a wake up call to believe the blessing for all nations promised to Abraham. Its time to know just who you to be are in God's eyes and look to the place He chose to place His name. There is no need to remain scattered not knowing who you are or what your inheritance is according to the everlasting covenant of the God of Israel for all people that He calls children.

Open your heart and you will feel the tug of the Spirit of God calling you to not just believe, but to do something and serve your King in the full covenant manner that He teaches us that is seen in the Torah walk and full witness of Messiah. That fullness is a part of the "fullness of the Gentiles" that Paul wrote of when he referred to the mystery of Jacob's amazing prophecy which is shown as Ephraim's blessing in Genesis 48:19-20.

Many limit the "fullness" of the Gentiles," thinking it only means a timeline or full measure of counting of the nations coming into faith of God's mercy and blessings. That is a part of it, but there is a deeper meaning in the Hebrew message found embedded in the Greek words noted in Romans 11:25.

The word "fullness" is "plērōma" and it also means fulfilling as in serving The Lord by "keeping" and doing the word of the Lord. 

This points us back to the promises reported by Isaiah found in Isaiah 2:1-5, Isaiah 5:26,  Isaiah 11:11-12, Isaiah 42:6, Isaiah 49:6, Isaiah 49:22,  Isaiah 52:10, Isaiah 56:6-8 and others including Isaiah 61:11 but there is a simple warning to be heeded for all nations, you can read it in Isaiah 60:12... the nation and kingdom that will not serve the God of Israel will see the end that is portrayed in Hollywood movies and New York Time best sellers, they will perish and be utterly laid waste. Those nations will bring the end on themselves.

The fullness of the Gentiles has a deeper meaning, 
it refers to keeping the way,
the Torah walk of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua.

In Romans 11:25 Paul is revealing Jacob's amazing prophecy tied to Isaiah's promises about the generation we are in today with the stage set by the rebirth certificate of Israel declared in 1947 and the restoration of Jerusalem in 1967. Today, a remnant of Christians in the nations are returning to the Biblical truth of the Jewish roots of their faith in the walk of their Jewish Messiah Yeshua. They are returning to the Bible and coming out of misguided replacement theology teachings of a few old church fathers that arrived on the scene after the death of the disciples.

In the Roman letter, Paul teaches why Gentiles (nations) are returning to the root of their faith:
“I ask instead: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says: "I will make you jealous by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation without understanding." Romans 10:19 quoting Deuteronomy 32:21

“I ask then, did they stumble so as to lose their share? Absolutely not! However, because of their trespass, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous.” Romans 11:11

“I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, in the hope that I may provoke my own people to jealousy and save some of them.” Romans 11:13-14
Many have not realized the value of this truth in today's hour, but Yeshua taught this for the Gentile:
"You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 
But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:22-24 NASB
The spirit and truth of the matter is that Abba Father, YHVH the God of Israel wants the world to wake up and worship Him in spirit and in truth. YHVH wants us all to understand His wake up call can be seen in the Covenant Land we call Israel. He wants us to see that He chose Jerusalem as the place to put His Name and reputation as the God of Israel as a light to the nations and He wants us to literally see that He has placed the Jewish people there to prepare the land for the return of Messiah whether they understand His arrival in glory as King is His first or second trip to the Promised Land.

Salvation is from the Jews is the message of truth that the "dragon of deception" wants to keep hidden in darkness and that fact is manifested in the abomination that causes desolation of prayer for Jews today on the Temple Mount. Its darkness that seeks to divide God's covenant land with the false-god of Islam and Koranic teachings that in the end demand: convert to Islam, or are killed.

That cannot bring lasting peace and security, only jihad murder and terror.

Like the bogus trial of Yeshua, peace and security is disguised by the media in the goal of a counterfeit peace agreement that opposes the mountaintop promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob given by the living God of Israel as compared to a dark cave dream promise to Ishmael's descendant that spews insanity: "Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews...”

The thing about a dark lie is that the truth eventually comes to light and many are starting to understand the spirit and truth of Messiah and who they are as the prophecies of the Bible are focused on Jerusalem not Mecca. Yes, there is a judgment day coming as Muslims attack Jews and press the world toward a storm of sick antisemitic opinion but Isaiah 60:12 is the judgment... the nation and kingdom that will not serve the God of Israel will perish and be utterly laid waste. Those nations will bring the end on themselves.

Almighty God set the stars and planets in sequence so that they would declare His glory and His times and seasons. Yeshua tells us that before His return, there would be signs for the season of His return. What is so extraordinary is that as we begin to recognize unusual heavenly signs that declare the glory of God, we must realize that the Holy Day patterns are important to both Israel and the nations.

Take note, while some want to tie the 1949-1950 lunar eclipse days to the nation in a day declaration by the UN, the fact is, the Feast Day eclipses were bisected by the shofar call of the “The Law of Return” (ha-shvt – Knesset Item 5710-1950) which was passed by Israeli parliamentary legislation and signed by Golda Meir on July 5, 1950. Today, the "Law of Return" is hotly debated. Some want to keep it intact, others want to change it, and some hope to abolish it.

This law of 'the land' provides a decree for the return of “Jewish people” to the Promised Land.

The dual eclipse that begins on Passover in 2014 and extends to Tabernacles 2015 occurs two years after the 2012 UN vote on the birth certificate of a Palestinian State, but the mystery is it may point to the time known as "the fullness of the Gentiles."

These eclipse patterns all point like a sign toward Israel.

Did you know the 'Six Day War' of 1967 fell between the same Passover - Tabernacles eclipse pattern as Israel took legal control of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount? You can hear the announcement and the shofar for yourself as you listen to the Israeli military radio traffic just 42 days after Passover in 1967.

Rabbi Shlomo Goren’s shofar-blowing marks an amazing moment in history at the threshing floor of Araunah that king David had purchased with fifty shekels of silver. David built an altar to the LORD there and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD responded to the plea for the land, and the plague was averted from Israel.

Shlomo (Solomon) Goren, the first chief rabbi of the IDF declared: “The Temple Mount is in our hands, the Temple Mount is in our hands. All forces stop firing. At this moment we are passing through the Lion’s Gate...”

Just when you thought that Goren's Hebrew name may not have any significant tie to the event, think again.

Goren is the Hebrew word גֹּרֶן that means "threshing floor." This is seen in 2Samuel 24:21-24 and many other places in the Scriptures for a total of 72 times, the last being Micah 4:12:
But they do not know
the thoughts of the LORD;
they do not understand his plan,
that he has gathered them as sheaves to the "threshing floor."
As if by heavenly decree, during this prophetic and historic restoration season, a tetrad series of four consecutive Passover-Tabernacles full lunar eclipses were seen above, but no one seemed to notice the signs for seasons, days and years during the Feast Days beginning at Passover in 1967 and ending at Sukkot in 1968. Whether it is seen or not, Almighty God provided an amazing connection to the threshing floor with rabbi Goren.

Now it's time to mark your calendar, in just two years, the world will see the first and last Feast Day eclipse pattern once again. It will arrive Passover Day on April 15, 2014, and the next eclipse will occur on the 1st Day of Tabernacles, September 28, 2015. The moon will turn blood red again in prophetic bookend sequence during the Feast Days of The Lord. 
There is no "thus saith The Lord" 
by any of my observations.

There is however one thing to remember: history shows us that triumph arrived during the prior Feast Day eclipse patterns.

Triumph followed threshing. That does not mean conflict will be the pattern in a couple of years, but with current Mideast events boiling over - it seems plausible as a time for preparation for something important during the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Partition Plan and the law of Aliyah for the State of Israel.

The birth certificate vote by the UN is a wake up call.

A wake up call for Paul's warning, perhaps about another UN vote on Resolution 181. That resolution will be a part of the UN podium scene again. After all, the first resolution was accepted by the newly formed Israeli government but rejected by the Arabs and surrounding Arab states.

It may also shed the light center stage to the potential of another shofar to blown in Israel. Just as Micah wrote, no one knows the plan, but this is written in the scrolls of the prophets:
“Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ “Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all around... (Joel 3:9-11)

“For The Lord of hosts will visit His flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as His royal horse in the battle. From him… the battle bow… they shall be like mighty men, who tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle. They shall fight because The Lord is with them… Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as if with wine” (Zechariah 10:3-5; 7)

“For I have bent Judah, My bow, fitted the bow with Ephraim, and made you like the sword of a mighty man.” Then YHVH will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord Elohim will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south” (Zechariah 9:13-14)

“They [Judah and Ephraim] shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; together they shall plunder the people of the East; they shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab; and the people of Ammon shall obey them. (Isaiah 11:14)
In light of these prophecies, with tension and conflict looming in the Mideast from the Arab Spring's 'Islamic Awakening', we might consider 40 Jubilees have passed since Yeshua’s synagogue teaching when He declared the acceptable year of The Lord.

Forty is important in the Bible, so the least we should do is look at all of this as a Wake Up Call.

Abraham arrived on the scene some 40 Jubilees after Adam and Yeshua's ministry of miracles began 40 Jubilees after Abraham. And now, we are on the verge of the 40th Jubilee after Messiah's Kingdom teaching. To top it off, we are also converging on the precipice of the 70th Jubilee since ancient tribes of Israel were given allotments within the Promised Land some 3,500 years ago. The time may also mark the 120th Jubilee of mankind since Noah's day.

Not only that, we are approaching the 70th Feast of Weeks (Shavuot-Pentecost) since the U.N. outlined Israel's statehood in 1947 leading the Jewish people to return to the Land of Promise. To top it off, a 50th year is near, the Jubilee of the 1967 restoration of Jerusalem.

Whether a Jubilee Year is declared or not in 2017, you need to know what the word of God has to say to the nations that seek to divide the land of Israel, so do your research and pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and its restoration.

History is clear, God began to return the Jewish people to Israel in earnest in 1949 and the city of Jerusalem was restored to the nation in 1967.

Perhaps none of this has significance right now, but take note, the moon will go blood red during the eclipse on the first day of Tabernacles September 28, 2015 after a Shemittah Year concludes. The Shemittah begins in the 7th Biblical month of Tishrei on September 25, 2014, and it will end on September 13, 2015 on the last day of Elul, ten days before the Jubilee potentially begins on Yom Kippur. With that Jubilee, Israel can expect a blessing.

Biblical timekeeping is important. Elul is known by the Jewish people as ‘ha melech be sade’ which means "the King is in the field." So I must ask, will this time signal a future gathering of nations the Jewish prophets warn us about?
"For look, in those days and at that time, when I turn back the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, then I shall gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I shall enter into judgment with them there for My people, My inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and they have divide up my land. Joel 3:1-3
Jehoshaphat means "Yah has judged." Here, the word translated as "valley" is the Hebrew word `emeq, it means "open country" and Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon says that `emeq is a wide tract of land fit for corn and suitable for battle. That may point to a field, a battle field. It is a much different word than the Hebrew word for "valley" that is seen in some 60 other verses.

I don't know what may unfold, but one thing is certain, there is a wake up call for "all" Israel - as everyone may come to the truth and spirit understanding of the Jewish identity of Messiah. To better understand prophecy, we must see the identity of the Jewish Jesus that Paul explains in Romans 11. After all, Yeshua is the Lord and Redeemer of "all" Israel, including those lost and grafted in.

Here's another thing... the U.N. resolution for a Palestinian state occurred exactly 65 years after the U.N. resolution for a Jewish state following the Holocaust. The prophet Daniel records the words of Gabriel regarding a period of 70 weeks and he tells us they include 62 weeks. So, out of curiosity, what was happening around the 62nd Feast of Weeks (Shavuot May 29, 2009) since U.N. Resolution 181 was voted on in 1947?

Global stage leaders met with President Obama in the Whitehouse in 2009. This was reported in Zechariah's Vision and The Quartet:

1) King Abdullah II - On Holocaust Day, April 21, 2009, the 12th day of counting the Omer to the Feast of Weeks following Passover, President Obama met with King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Obama stated: "We also discussed the situation with respect to Israel and the Palestinian conflict. And we both share the view that despite the many changes, or perhaps because of the many changes that are taking place in the region, it’s more vital than ever that both Israelis and Palestinians find a way to get back to the table and begin negotiating a process whereby they can create two states that are living side by side in peace and security."

2) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - On May 18, 2009, on day 33 of the Omer count to the Feast of Weeks, Israel's 12th Prime Minister met with Obama at the White House, where they discussed the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and Israel's settlements in the so-called West Bank. While Obama said that a two-state solution is a priority, Netanyahu refused to support the creation of a Palestinian state. Netanyahu said Israel has the right to continue settlements, whereas Obama called for settlement growth to be frozen.

3) Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas - On day 49 of the Omer count to the 62nd Feast of Weeks since Resolution 181 was declared, President Obama held a one-on-one meeting with Mahmoud Abbas in the Oval Office on May 28, 2009. This meeting was closed press. After the meeting Obama announced to the press:
"Hello, everybody. Well, it is a great pleasure to welcome President Abbas to the Oval Office. We had -- we just completed an extensive conversation, both privately as well as with our delegations, about how we can advance peace in the Middle East and how we can reaffirm some core principles that I think can result in Palestinians and Israelis living side by side in peace and security.

As I've said before, I've been a strong believer in a two-state solution that would provide the Israelis and Palestinians the peace and security that they seek. I am very appreciative that President Abbas shares that view. And when Prime Minister Netanyahu was here last week I reiterated to him that the framework that's been provided by the road map is one that can advance the interests of Israel, can advance the interests of the Palestinian people, and can also advance the interests of the United States.

We are a stalwart ally of Israel and it is in our interests to assure that Israel is safe and secure. It is our belief that the best way to achieve that is to create the conditions on the ground and set the stage for a Palestinian state as well. And so what I told Prime Minister Netanyahu was is that each party has obligations under the road map. On the Israeli side those obligations include stopping settlements. They include making sure that there is a viable potential Palestinian state. On the Palestinian side it's going to be important and necessary to continue to take the security steps on the West Bank that President Abbas has already begun to take, working with General Dayton. We've seen great progress in terms of security in the West Bank. Those security steps need to continue because Israel has to have some confidence that security in the West Bank is in place in order for us to advance this process."
What does this all mean?

Consider a prayer: Please, God, guide me as to what I should do.

It's time for you to repent and return to God's voice, return to hear and do His word and walk in the faith of His Kingdom path so that you can ready your lamp for your coming assignment. 

God is a sovereign God. He sent His Son Yeshua, a Jew for your salvation and He has given us His Torah and Prophets to declare these things. He is a loving God but judgment is coming and He has provided a way to offer you His salvation.

You can accept His gift of life in Messiah. Consider carefully what your life consists of, look at it and repent of your sin, ask His forgiveness and accept His gift of love through Messiah Yeshua. Ask Him into your life. Do it now!

Today is the time for your wake up call, Jew or non-Jew.

Whether in Israel, America or anywhere else on this big blue ball, you need to get your life in line with your Creator, we all do, so don’t wait for tomorrow!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." John 3:16-17
To understand this wake up call and why it is a shofar warning -- you might bookmark and review these related commentaries:

• Israel Palestinian Conflict: The Truth About the West Bank
Better yet, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and do something. Contact your Congressional officials immediately and share your support for the covenant given Israel. Sound your shofar as a watchman, make your voice known:

Contact Your U.S. Senator

El Shaddai, Almighty God has promised Israel her salvation and redemption. Not only that, this nation will lead the world, Jerusalem will have peace and be the capitol of the planet.

King David's 12th Psalm is a witness against those that oppose the God of Israel. "Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases to be, For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men. They speak falsehood to one another; With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak."

Wake Up Call Updates 

The Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob not only gave a song to David but a warning through the prophet Joel, the son of Pethuel ("Vision of God") to deliver to the world. It remains as truth:
"I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land, and have cast lots for my people..." - Joel 3:2-3
These wake up call updates are to all nations that seek to 'cast lots' with hooks in their jaws for a the division of Israel that is both physical and spiritual. The wake up calls are for anyone that will stand for Israel to pray and blow a shofar with tryth, knowledge and discernment as an intercessor, a watchman on the walls of Jerusalem!!

May 10, 2024 Paul once wrote: "While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape."

Today, as Joe Biden fosters chaos and holds up Congressionally authorized support for Israel's battle to root out the rot of Hamas terrorists who hold not only Israeli but American hostages in Gazan tunnels below Rafah, the UN writes... Peace and Security

"The UN General Assembly convened again in New York on Friday for an emergency special session on the Gaza crisis and overwhelmingly passed a resolution which upgrades Palestine’s rights at the world body as an Observer State, without offering full membership. It urged the Security Council to give “favourable consideration” to Palestine’s request.

Granting Palestinian membership requires a recommendation from the Security Council. At the same time, the Assembly determines that the State of Palestine is qualified for such status and recommends that the Security Council “reconsider the matter favourably”.

None of the upgrades in status will take effect until the new session of the Assembly opens on 10 September."

December 2, 2022: Random evil in the form if Jihadist terror attacks have been seen throughout Israel whether in Tel Aviv streets or bus stops in Jerusalem for months and now in Iran on national TV in a broadcast recorded by MEMRI from November 27th, an old threat arises like a wild beast.

From MEMRI: "IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami said in a November 27, 2022 speech aired on Ofogh TV (Iran) that Iran will soon witness the collapse of Israel, and that it will turn the upcoming “world war” into a “graveyard” for the policies of America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and their allies. He said that there is no middle ground, and that one must choose between the “front of Islam” and the “front of heresy”. He added that the Quran instructs Muslims to “not take the Jews and Christians as allies.” 

August 31, 2022: This another wake up call, this one from ANFNews and it's linked to Revelation 16:12.  

Latest images show that the waters of the Euphrates River have decreased significantly as a result of the water war waged by the invading Turkish state against the people of North and East Syria.

Images captured on the banks of the Euphrates reveal that a large part of the Euphrates River has dried up. These areas which were once a source of life for the region have now become arid lands.

The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.

July 17, 2022: The 17th of the month of Tammuz, is the start of a three-week mourning period for the two time destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. The day is a fast recalling five tragic events that occurred on this date. One of them was some 2,400 years ago that Nebuchadnezzar’s war horn armies breached the walls of Jerusalem and entered the city attacking the the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and the Levites. Jerusalem fell in flames on the 17th of Tammuz and Daniel was hauled off to Babylon. 

Just one day after Joe Biden claimed his support for dividing Israel to pre-1967 boundaries on the Fast of Tammuz, Kamal Kharrazi says Tehran can build the bomb. 

"In a few days we were able to enrich uranium up to 60% and we can easily produce 90% enriched uranium ... Iran has the technical means to produce a nuclear bomb but there has been no decision by Iran to build it." Kamal Kharrazi

"US President Joe Biden pledged his support for a two-state resolution based on the pre-1967 lines with mutual land swaps when he held a joint press conference with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday in Bethlehem."

The words are in stark contrast to Ronald Reagan's in his speech 40 years ago on United States Policy for Peace in the Middle East, September 1, 1982.

"Israel exists; it has a right to exist in peace behind secure and defensible borders; and it has a right to demand of its neighbors that they recognize those facts. I have personally followed and supported Israel's heroic struggle for survival, ever since the founding of the State of Israel 34 years ago. In the pre-1967 borders Israel was barely 10 miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel's population lived within artillery range of hostile Arab armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again."

Joe Jr. this is your wake up call, you're not mentioned: 
"These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun." Numbers 34:17
The fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem were restored in 1967, and another Joe wrote the words of The LORD about that. They must be repeated: 
"For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land..." Joel 3:1-3

In a twisted, rambling report release, the U.S. The State department refers to the Temple Mount as the mosque and points to a prayer shutdown:

"In recent years, some Jews had entered the mosque and tried to offer prayers. The [Israeli] government reiterated that non-Islamic prayer was not allowed on the grounds of the site, but non-Muslim visitors were allowed."

Not only that the report sets out a deceptive assault calling for “religious pluralism and respect for all religious groups” yet the report is a clearly defined effort to do the opposite, ignore the Bible and humiliate the Jewish people in an attempt to condemn Jewish people from prayer at the Temple Mount of the God of Israel.

October 7, 2021: US State Department spokesman Ned Price started his press briefing at the State Department today ignoring Genesis 2:24 saying:

"Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming the Special Envoy to Advance the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons Jessica Stern to the department as she officially assumed her duties late last month. This appointment reflects the Biden-Harris administration’s commitment to advance and to protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons at home and abroad."

Ned then answered questions including one asking where the Biden Administration stands on dividing Israel. Speaking for the State Department, it should be obvious Ned Price not only disregards Genesis, he does not worry about who really owns the land of Israel. The State Department has no concern about the valley of Jehoshaphat or the words Almighty God gave the prophet Joel to write:
"I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." Joel 3:2
Rome's Titus scattered God's people among the nations and history tells us what happened to the Roman Empire, Joel's warning remains for those nations that divide God's land.

"QUESTION: A very quick couple of questions on the Palestinian-Israeli issue. The Israeli press reported yesterday that the Biden administration is – quietly and behind the scenes – is putting pressure on the Israeli Government to freeze settlements. You know there was a big, I guess, plan or a huge plan or a huge settlement – can you comment on this? Do you guys – what is your position on the settlements?

MR PRICE: Well, part of your question I will comment on; part of your question I won’t comment on. I’ll start with the latter. We don’t comment on private diplomatic conversations, private conversations that may be taking place, whether that’s between the Secretary and his counterpart and the President and his counterpart. But what we have said many times before is that we believe it is critical for all parties to refrain from unilateral steps that exacerbate tensions and undercut efforts to advance a negotiated two-step – two-state solution. That, of course, includes settlement activity.

QUESTION: No, Ned – I mean, you guys have always stuck to this line about anything that would prejudice a two-station solution outcome and so on. But in fact, you say unilateral steps. We’re talking about one side who is doing this, which is Israel. It is taking the land. It is throwing people out. It is making the two-state outcome almost impossible. So what is there left for the United States to do in order to pressure Israel to end these activities that actually render the two-state solution almost impossible to attain?

MR PRICE: Said, the two-state solution is something we discuss with our Israeli partners at just about every opportunity. It continues to be the guiding principle for our approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and it continues to be the guiding principle, the guiding framework, for a simple reason: The two-state solution is the best means by which to protect Israel’s identity as a Jewish and democratic state while affording to the Palestinian people what they have long sought, and that includes self-determination, dignity, safety, security, prosperity in a state of their own. And so that is why we’ve remained focused on this.

Look, we don’t always – in fact we never read out our private diplomatic conversations, the back and forth we have, whether that’s with our Israeli partners or any partner around the world. But suffice to say we have made our position very clear, and when it comes to unilateral action like settlement activity, we have also made that very clear. And in fact, I just reiterated where the United States stands on settlement activity. There should be no question about that."

Ned Price not only disregards Genesis or understand who really owns the Promised Land, he has no concern about the valley of Jehoshaphat and admitted that the State Department has only assisted 105 U.S. citizens leave Afghanistan since August 31, 2021. He dodged the question on how many remain to face the Taliban with State Department rhetoric. 

The fact is private charters have outdone the State Department 8 to 1 on just two flights. That's another wake up call.

May 23, 2021: It's time to wake up. Long ago a Philistine said, "I defy the armies of Israel..."

Have you ever wondered, why does 1 Samuel 17:23 tell us that David, a citizen left Bethlehem and traveled to the valley of Elah and there David heard the Philistine speak according to the same words?

I think we should be like David and listen to know the enemy of Israel. So, I've posted an interview that I doubt social media will ban despite the war crime lies and the false witness accusations. This week, following a ceasefire, Sky News (Australia) published a video interview between correspondent Mark Stone and Hamas’s co-founder Mahmoud Al-Zahar. Watch and you'll see and hear Al-Zahar say that Israel has no right to exist. 

Goliath stood against Israel's army, but Al-Zahar said his terrorist organization’s rocket attacks targeted the civilians of Israel. 

He admitted Hamas’s terror rockets against Israeli civilians was important: “The new element is the degree of the resistance movement, particularly in Gaza, to attack the Israeli targets at very important points, including most of the overcrowded area in the civilian society. So for how long the Israeli will accept that, I think this is the main issue.”

Hamas' terrorists in Gaza fired over 4,000 rockets at Israel's citizens while Al-Zahar hid for 11 days as Jewish civilians living near Gaza were forced to flee their homes into bomb shelters 24/7 as international war crime rockets flew against innocent people. 

Not only that, Al-Zahar said Israel has no right to exist and then pointed his finger at Mr. Stone saying America and Britain came and took houses from Arab settlements.

You may have had missed it, but the IDF has given the name "Shomer Hachomot" (the watchman of the walls) to their Gazan rocket defense mission from Isaiah 62:6-7:
“On your walls, Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen. All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who profess YHVH, take no rest for yourselves and give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem an object of praise on the earth.”
IDF leadership know The God of Israel who David called The Lord of the armies of Israel is talking about them too. The LORD raised the the armies of Israel up during the Omer Count in 1948, in 1967 and this year just as He raised His right hand up against Pharaoh during the Omer Count at the Exodus sea crossing. 

Much of the media and the UN sided with the terrorists not knowing The God of Israel has a word for them and that He leads His military forces that bring out a weapon for its work with a promise from The Lord of Hosts.

I often quote just one verse of it, but that's not enough. What's written in the great Isaiah scroll in Jerusalem is not there as a museum piece to be admired, but a declaration for today and it's critical in a prayer of participation in this battle:
"All your sons will be taught of the LORD; And the well-being of your sons will be great. In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you.

If anyone fiercely assails it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you.

Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work; and I have created the destroyer to ruin.

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn.

This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me, declares the LORD." Isaiah 54:13-17
May 8, 2021: The EU, a member of The Quartet has followed in the footsteps of the Biden White House and the State Department. The EU has just denounced Israel's planned development of an abandoned area in a southern area of Jerusalem called Givat Hamatos.

Yet, it's no where near the so-called disputed area of East Jerusalem or the West Bank. This is a wake up call so that you can see the truth and take a quick a tour of reality from Avi Abelow.

Check it out as Avi shines a bright light on altered reality.

March 31, 2021: Ned Price is a spokesman for the US State Department. Ned says Judea and Samaria has been occupied by Israel since 1967. 

Wake up Ned, Israel does not “occupy” the biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. Ned, you've already forgotten that The Trump administration correctly changed the custom of using the term “Occupied Territories” after the United States formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and Ned, you've forgotten Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Israeli settlements in the so-called West Bank do not violate international law on November 23, 2019.

Ned Price, you have also forgotten the Bible and God's instruction to Abraham: "Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you" (Genesis 12:1). Ned you have forgotten the undivided land grant gift. It's a grant from God, because it's His land to give. Ned, the words are simple: "The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” (Genesis 12:7). 

Wake up! What price will Ned Price make America pay in defiance of God's land grant deed to His land?


QUESTION: Sure. I’ll go to the Middle East if you don’t mind. Following up on yesterday, I know you had an entire briefing yesterday on the Human Rights Report, but the question of occupation – there’s been quite a bit of attention to that, that the U.S. didn’t use “occupied territories,” that the State Department didn’t in the report. Does this indicate a type of permanent change in policy? Is this a continuation of the policy under the Trump administration? How do you —

MR PRICE: Well, I addressed this from the podium several weeks ago now. What I said then, of course, remains true today, and that is it is a historical fact that Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan Heights after the 1967 war. You mentioned the Human Rights Report that we rolled out yesterday. In fact, the 2020 Human Rights Report does use the term “occupation” in the context of the current status of the West Bank. This has been the longstanding position of previous administrations of both parties over the course of many decades.

March 24, 2021: One of my biggest concerns about the election of Joe Biden continues to hit the headlines. 

As we approach Passover in just three days, we have to look back. 

If we were in Egypt some 3500 years ago, we'd likely be staring into the face of the ninth plague this week. What happened? Three days of darkness enveloped Egypt as Moses demanded freedom for Israel to go to the wilderness, worship God and return to the Promised Land (see Exodus 10:21-23).

Now we have this story from the Jerusalem Post - Mideast quartet discusses reviving Israel, Palestinian peace talks

"The Middle East quartet of mediators - the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations - discussed on Tuesday reviving "meaningful negotiations" between Israel and the Palestinians with the aim of a two-state solution.

In a statement following their meeting, the quartet said that both Israel and the Palestinians need "to refrain from unilateral actions that make a two-state solution more difficult to achieve."

It appeared to be the first time since September 2018 that envoys from the four mediators have met. Last month, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he hoped there would be a quartet meeting in coming weeks, now that there was a new president in the White House.

The Palestinians want a state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip with east Jerusalem as its capital - all territory captured by Israel in 1967."

Just before that headline came out, one of the craftsmen of chaos like those Zechariah noted: "craftsmen have come to terrify them, to throw down the horns of the nations who have lifted up their horns against the land of Judah in order to scatter it." (Zechariah 1:21) 

Craftsmen terrify the four horsemen among the myrtle trees (see Zechariah 1). 

What does this tell us. If you ask me it warns America and the Quartet it leads that the terrorists, perhaps the same men that orchestrated 9/11 will raise their swords again.  

January 26, 2021: This wake up call takes an excerpt from the Obama... oh excuse me, I meant to say the Biden Administration as Ambassador Richard Mills, the Acting Representative U.S. Mission to the United Nations made his voice heard at the UN today. It points to a disaster in the making.

"Under the new administration, the policy of the United States will be to support a mutually agreed two-state solution, one in which Israel lives in peace and security alongside a viable Palestinian state. This vision, as I know we have just heard, though under serious stress, remains the best way to ensure Israel’s future as a democratic and Jewish state, while upholding the Palestinian people’s legitimate aspirations for a state of their own and to live with dignity and security. Peace cannot be imposed on either the Israelis or the Palestinians.

U.S. diplomatic engagement will begin from the premise that sustainable progress must be based on active consultation with both sides and that ultimate success requires the active consent of both sides.

Unfortunately, as I think we’ve heard, the respective leaderships are far apart on final-status issues, Israeli and Palestinian politics are fraught, and trust between the two sides is at a nadir. However, these realities do not relieve Member States of the responsibility of trying to preserve the viability of a two-state solution. "

"In closing, let me add a comment on mention of the Quartet by previous speakers: the United States looks forward to working with Israel, the Palestinians, Security Council Members, the Quartet, and the new UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East over the next several years."

October 3, 2020: Just when you may have thought the burdensome stone of Jerusalem was in the back ground with the all the new peace accords with Arab lands, we have a hint that the Ottoman Empire still seeks control of Jerusalem.

Wake up! Just a week ago during a speech you can watch for yourself given at the Turkish parliament, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared Jerusalem “our city.” Not only that, the Turk leader declared to the crowd of legislators that Palestinian Arabs had lived in “Palestine” for “thousands of years” and that they were “an oppressed people.”

He went on to say: “In this city that we had to leave in tears during the First World War, it is still possible to come across traces of the Ottoman resistance. So Jerusalem is our city, a city from us...” 

September 29, 2020: During presentations made at the 75th UN General Debate (September 2020) from the three parties of the peace accord signed by Bahrain, the UAE and will see there is a common thread of concern by the craftsmen of chaos in Iran in the words from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the United Arab Emirates. 

Clearly, the new relations with these Gulf countries, have grown from a grave concern over Iran. My concern is that the Gulf countries believe they need an IDF tip on their spear while they squeeze Israel to shrink back to 1967 borders.

Despite begin called the Abraham Accords, if you listen to these men, you will hear the two Arab leaders tie their cooperation agreements to stopping annexation in Israel that opposes the very land grant Almighty God gave Abraham's descendants. 

The Bahrain king notes a halt to annexation and a return to 1967 borders as stated by the UAE Sheikh.

His name is King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan does the same.

The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Egypt, France, Germany and Jordan, met in Amman today to continue their coordination and consultation on what they call the means to advance the Middle East Peace Process towards a just, comprehensive and lasting peace. The meeting was attended by the EU Special Representative for the Middle East Peace Process.

The Ministers declared:

We emphasize our commitment to support all efforts to achieve a just, lasting and comprehensive peace that fulfills the legitimate rights of all parties on the basis of international law, relevant United Nations resolutions and agreed parameters, including the Arab Peace Initiative.

We stress that the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution, that ensures the emergence of an independent and viable Palestinian state on the basis of June 4, 1967 lines, living side by side a secure and recognized Israel, is the path to achieving comprehensive, enduring peace and regional security.

Another Elul moment in the headlines. 

In Isaiah 41:21-26 God challenged everyone to determine whether He exists and is in fact sovereign over all nations. What is amazing about this is that it shows from God’s Word that he will intervene as needed to make sure the end is connected to the beginning.

We all thought maybe Qatar, Oman, the Sudan or Bahrain, all Arab Muslim nations were standouts. But now, Serbia (Christian) and Kosovo (non-Arab Muslim) also have a connection to Jerusalem.  Serbia will move its embassy to Jerusalem. On top of that, Kosovo and Serbia signed an historic economic deal to end their former hostility with each other. 

Sounding a shofar wake up call, Elul connects the past with the future with teshuvah repentance preparing for “Days of Awe.” 

All I can say is I'm not quite sure what this Elul moment means... but I think I hear the footsteps of Messiah approaching.

January 27, 2020: A A tweet from the Gatestone Institute led me to this story:

Palestinian Elections: How Abbas and Europe Are Trying to Blame Israel

"This month, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas entered the 16th year of his four-year-term in office. Abbas, who was elected to succeed Yasser Arafat in January 2005, has since avoided holding a Palestinian presidential election, each time using a different excuse. While in the past he used to blame his rivals in Hamas for the failure to hold a new election, Abbas is now trying to hold Israel responsible. His attempt seems to be supported by some Europeans.

Abbas's four-year tenure ended in January 2009. Two years earlier, Hamas had violently seized control of the Gaza Strip, by ousting Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA) regime and throwing some of his loyalists from the top floors of tall buildings.

Back then, Abbas's excuse may have sounded convincing: he and his senior PA officials argued that there was no chance Hamas would allow a free election in the Gaza Strip.

Abbas at first claimed that he was eager to hold the presidential election on time. In October 2009, Abbas announced that he would issue a presidential decree to hold the election before January 25, 2010. After meeting then Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo, Abbas told reporters that the door has not yet been closed to reconciliation between his ruling Fatah faction and Hamas.

Abbas, however, has used his dispute with Hamas to avoid holding an election for the Palestinian parliament -- the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC). The last parliamentary election, in 2006, resulted in a huge Hamas victory. When a PLC election was supposed to take place after that, in January 2010, the rivalry between Abbas and Hamas prevented the vote.

The Palestinians have, in fact, been without a functioning parliament since Hamas's violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in 2007. The parliament building is still standing, dusty and unused, in Ramallah, and Palestinian parliament members have continued receiving salaries although they have been doing nothing."

January 26, 2020: Hamas chief says Trump's Mideast peace plan 'will not pass'

"The leader of the Hamas terror organization, Ismail Haniya, said Sunday that the Middle East peace plan US President Donald Trump is expected to unveil next week "will not pass" and could lead to a surge in Palestinian terrorism.

"We firmly declare that the 'deal of the century' will not pass. The new plot aimed against Palestine is bound to fail," and could lead the Palestinians to a "new phase in their struggle" against Israel, Haniya said in a statement.

Shortly after the Palestinian Islamist movement released Haniya's statement, a rocket was fired from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip towards Israel, the Israeli army said."

December 6, 2019:  Divide the land was the US House resolution today. This resolution is a big problem.

Two years ago to the day, the President Trump decided to no longer delay the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. Today the House that seeks to impeach him voted divide the Holy Land.

"This resolution expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that only a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can ensure Israel's survival as a secure Jewish and democratic state and fulfill the legitimate aspirations for a Palestinian state. It also expresses the sense that any U.S. proposal to achieve a just, stable, and lasting solution should expressly endorse a two-state solution and discourage steps that would put a peaceful resolution further out of reach."

Wake UP! 

House Resolution 326 passed 226-188 and stands against God's promise. Resolution 326 is in direct opposition to God’s choosing this specific land on which to place His Name, so there is a battle. -- The Bible is easy to understand.

The promise to Jacob still stands and believe it or not it is from "Vayetze" (He Went Out) the Genesis 28 Torah portion this very week:
“I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac.  
I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south.  
All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” 
What will become of Resolution 326? Every lower House resolution that has agreement of the upper house Senate must be presented to the President and can be approved or being disapproved by him like a Bill. Even though a Resolution does not become a law like a bill, it still must be presented to the President for signature if both House and Senate pass it.

My prayer is that the 100 people in our Senate will never approve it.

May those words upper and lower remain true.

November 18, 2019: Back in 2010 I began another post and called it Zechariah's Vision to share a possible perspective on Zechariah's dream.

My post began with the politically distracted views and opinions of former president Jimmy Carter that Judea and Samaria were an occupied territory called the West Bank and that Jewish settlement in their home land was a violation of international law.

Since then, I have repeatedly listed headlines with perspectives called Prayer Alerts and today many of those prayers have been answered in the United States.

The long standing Washington opinion from the Carter administration to Obama's that has been passed down in some way or another by every presidential generation except Ronald Reagan's has now been officially trumped with the truth by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

It took 40 years...

From NPR: State Department Loosens U.S. Policy On Israeli Settlements In West Bank

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday the Trump administration's latest pro-Israel change in U.S. policy, saying the State Department is rescinding a 1978 department legal opinion that viewed settlements in the Israeli-occupied West Bank as inconsistent with international law.

That legal opinion, known as the Hansell Memorandum and crafted during the Carter administration, said that "civilian settlements in those territories is inconsistent with international law."

Pompeo said that over the years U.S. presidents have viewed the opinion different ways but that the Trump administration does not view the settlements as inconsistent with international law and leaves the issue of individual settlements up to Israeli courts."

September 29, 2019: Blessed is the one who stays awake... 

If you have read Revelation 16:12-16 you may have wondered about the strange reference to three frogs that are front and center at the sixth bowl plague who go abroad to the kings of the whole world and to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty at the place called Armageddon.

I can only imagine that they have the same goal as these three men that remind me of the Hittites, the Jebusites and the Amorites.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Left) Hassan Nasrallah (Center) Qassem Soleimani (Right)

The Times of Israel reports on Nasrallah's goal: Nasrallah: Hezbollah will ‘enter occupied Palestine’ with improved intelligence

"Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Saturday issued further threats against Israel, saying the Lebanese terror organization’s “unprecedented levels of intelligence” would soon lead to its fighters “entering occupied Palestine.”

In an interview series published this week on the website of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Nasrallah boasted of the terror group’s intelligence capabilities.

“In various ways, Hezbollah obtains the necessary information for any future war or military action on the part of the Israeli enemy,” he said. “The enemy is on the defensive — we have always been on the defensive, now we are in attack mode,” said the leader of the Tehran-backed terror group, according to Channel 12 news."

If you don't think the croaking frog comparison is a good fit, why does Nasrallah describe a terror war by Iran, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq against a behind the scenes U.S. backed ISIS to assist Iraqi forces in the fifth segment of the interview?

You might listen to minute 20:10-20:26 as Nasrallah mentions the Euphrates, the same river identified in Revelation 16:12. The river's first mention is in Genesis, its last is Revelation. It is also mentioned as one of the boundary lines in the land covenant God made with Abraham and that covenant includes mention of  the Hittites, the Jebusites and the Amorites.

Many people mistakenly think of today's Israel as the extent of the land covenant, but its not, it includes the entire life journey of Abraham and that includes Ur the original home of Abraham which was located along the south Euphrates River as well as Haran to the north near the river's headwaters down to the river of Egypt.

March 31, 2019:  Palestine, Golan Heights take centre stage at Arab League summit

"Tunis, Tunisia - The Arab League has rejected the US's recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights and renewed a call for the establishment of a Palestinian state, saying peace and security in the region depended on a solution to the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

"The daylong meeting in Tunis took place against the backdrop of ongoing regional unrest and conflict - from the long-running wars in Syria and Yemen to instability in Libya, and the widespread anti-government protests in Algeria and Sudan to a major diplomatic dispute in the Gulf.

Khamis al-Jihnaoui, Tunisia's foreign minister, who delivered the 30th summit's final statement, called the continuing conflicts in the Arab world "unacceptable".

"Arab reconciliation is the starting point for stability in the region," he said.

But his statement did not make mention of the majority of conflicts plaguing the region. Instead it was Washington's recent move over Golan Heights and the Palestine issue that took centre stage."

No surprise they met in Tunisia the origin of the Arab Spring to declare Muslim rule on the Golan much like king Og the Amorite king over sixty fortified cities. The plague of conflicts is rooted in the Quran.

Can’t the men at the 30th Arab League summit set the Quran aside and read the Word of God?

Anyone can read the Bible and know that Golan is a city of Bashan described in Deuteronomy 4:43 as one of the three cities of “refuge” for Israel north-east of the Sea of Galilee shown as a second witness in Joshua 20:8. A third witness is Nehemiah 9:22 and he reminds us that the area includes the land of Sihon king of Heshbon.

That place is Manasseh’s: "This is the law Moses set before the Israelites."

The giants of today's Arab League have a big problem they cannot see because they ignore the Bible and taint the truth with another book.
So the LORD our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all his army. We struck them down, leaving no survivors. Deuteronomy 3:3 
Rise up, set out on your journey and go over the Valley of the Arnon. Behold, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land. Deuteronomy 2:24
Despite Og’s great size and strength as well as his great army, God gave Israel victory and they possessed the land of Bashan, the same land area we now call the Golan. Og was not the last of the giants described in the Bible. Goliath, who fought and lost to David 1,500 years later, was possibly related to him.

Aljazeera reports: "In a speech opening the summit, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia reiterated his kingdom's support for a Palestinian state in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip, with occupied East Jerusalem as its capital."

You see, it's not only about Bashan, aka the Golan. We are in "that day" this is about the burdensome stone, a piece of Jerusalem and thrones of judgment, so pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

March 23, 2019: Since his election, President Trump has used Twitter as a presidential podium.

The day before Purim he announced the US would redraw the map of Israel: "After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!"

From Saudi Arabia, the Arab News reported on this and another good news Tweet, this one from Mustafa Bali that declared the four year battle against the ISIS/ISIL self-declared caliphate was over with the headline...

Daesh defeated, ‘caliphate’ eliminated: US-backed SDF responded

"Daesh has been defeated at its final shred of territory of Baghouz in Syria, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said on Saturday, announcing the end of its self-declared “caliphate” that once spanned a third of Iraq and Syria.

The SDF declared the “total elimination of (the) so-called caliphate,” Mustafa Bali, head of the SDF media office, wrote on Twitter."

Yet the Arab News responded as if writing from a dark corner of the twilight zone with a headline response to President Trump's tweet about the Golan Heights just south of the Syrian crisis zone.

After over seven and 1/2 years of struggle and fighting in Syria, after citizens have been displaced and hundreds of thousands of Syrian men, women and children have been killed since the Syrian government began using lethal military aggression and violence to murder its people in an Alawite dictator's attempt to savagely stamp out anti-Assad Sunni protests.

Much like 1967 when Syria used its military against tiny Israel, Bashar Assad has now used the tanks and artillery of the Syrian military against his own people. The dictator has also engaged Syrian paramilitary forces and the use chemical gas to poison Syrian children.

Syrian soil has become the most deadly place on the planet.

What began as perhaps the final chapter of the Arab Spring, emboldened the Daesh, the radical, murdering maniacs of Sunni ISIS/ISIL. Assad's government attacks brought them to Syria to fight for the land after they had proclaimed their Caliphate from a mosque in Iraq.

The black flag Daesh warriors have attacked all Muslims that did not join their self-proclaimed rule of Islam and they mass murdered and displaced the ancient Christian communities from northern Iraq and Nineveh to Syria and Libya in North Africa. ISIS has emboldened other radical Sunni jihadist groups still fighting within Sunni and Shiite Islam over who should be the successor to Muhammad.

The jihadists faction terrorists embrace political and religious murder. They seek to kill anyone that does follow their beliefs. These include Hamas, Hezbollah, the Al-Nusra Front, the al-Aqsa Foundation, the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Boko Haram in Nigeria among many others throughout the Middle East and Africa.

Syria has become a kill zone, yet Israel has kept the Golan Heights safe and sound since the 1967 Six Day War against Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and Syria.

Deuteronomy 3 shows that the Golan has been an area of conflict since the Amorite Kingdom in Bashan was conquered by Israelites during the reign of King Og and dispute between Israel and the Aramaeans that lived in Damascus.

Despite the peace and security provided by Israel in the Golan mountains abutting the back door of Syria's civil chaos and death, Trump's tweet has brought condemnation in the Arab News and more threats from Damascus declaring the Golan is both Arab and Syrian because Damascus seeks to divide.

The crazy thing about Syria is the fact that Assad is an Alewite, a Shia offshoot supported by the Shiite Ayatollah's Iran and neither are ethnic Arabs. Not only that, most Arab Sunni religious fundamentalists don't even regard Alawites as Muslims.

Welcome to your Purim wake up call to the twilight zone of Arab News...

I was reminded of a Jerusalem Post article from three years ago about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's declaration that "Israel will never leave the Golan Heights":


“The time has come for the international community to recognize reality,” Netanyahu said at the opening of the meeting held at Ma’aleh Gamla. “First, that whatever will be on the other side of the border, the border will not change.

“Secondly,” Netanyahu added, “the time has come, after 50 years, for the international community to finally recognize that the Golan Heights will remain forever under Israeli sovereignty.”"

In a first reaction to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's declaration that "Israel will never leave the Golan Heights," Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad said Sunday that Syria is prepared to use every possible means to recapture the area, including military means.

"The Syrian Golan is an occupied Arab land according to the UN Security Council's resolutions, and the presence of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Forces proves this," Miqad said in an interview with the Lebanon-based TV channel al-Mayadeen.

"We have never renounced the resistance and we are ready to recapture the Golan in all possible ways, including military ways. Israel wants to provoke us, but we will never surrender," Miqdad added."

For more details on those that oppose Israel and seek to divide the land see Zechariah's Vision and the Quartet.

March 7, 2019: You gotta be kidding me, more fake news I pray. One Saudi says…


"Saudi Arabia has been in touch with the US administration regarding the peace initiative, as it is rumored that the deal will include recognition of Israel by surrounding Arab countries

A senior reporter for the Al Riyadh, one of Saudi Arabia's most prominent newspapers, claimed that the US President Donald Trump's "Deal of the Century" will divide Jerusalem.

The reporter Hadeel Oueis wrote on her twitter account that "The Old City of Jerusalem will be divided in half: the Arab and Christian quarters will go to the PA [Palestinian Authority], while the Jewish and Armenian quarters will fall under Israeli control.""

Today, the tenth of Nisan is Aliyah Day, a national Israeli holiday and I'm thinking it could be the day the US State Department rolls out its version of the Trump "Peace Plan" after the April 9th Israeli elections this year.

In the Torah, this time of year is called the month of the Aviv. On the tenth day of that month, plagues enveloped Egypt because Pharaoh would not let Israel go to return home.

Near the end of their return journey, Moses' sister Miriam passed away. When she died, the waters in the well ceased according to Numbers 20:1-2: "And Miriam died there and was buried there. And there was no water for the congregation..."

A year later, on the tenth of Aviv (now known as Nisan) the River Jordan was divided, likely at the spot of Yeshua's mikveh and Israel crossed over to enter the Promised Land. Soon the first year of Jubilee arrived after that day.

Some 1,400 years after the waters in the well ceased and the Jordan River stopped flowing for the crossing, Yeshua rode into Jerusalem this same day before Passover. John 12:15 says that He rode in a donkey and Zechariah's prophecy about Him was fulfilled:

“Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” Zechariah  9:9

February 1, 2019: Iran continues to call for the destruction of Israel. 

November 28, 2018: Two articles appeared in the headlines today, both are well with noting.

The first: Israel’s Ambassador to UN, Danny Danon, Urges European Union States to Support US-Backed Resolution Condemning Hamas

"Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations has urged European Union countries to get behind a  US-sponsored resolution at the UN General Assembly that condemns Hamas for its missile attacks against the Jewish state.

“The resolution is an American resolution, and I know that the US is still negotiating the language with the EU,” Ambassador Danny Danon told The Algemeiner on Wednesday. “Hopefully, the EU will join this resolution. I don’t see a reason for a member state of the EU not to condemn Hamas, when the EU itself already designated Hamas as a terrorist organization.”

The resolution, which is likely to be voted on in the coming days, marks the second time this year that the US has attempted to secure UNGA support for a resolution condemning Hamas. The Islamist organization’s repeated missile attacks on Israel have resulted in three wars since it seized power in a violent coup in 2007, ousting the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority."

This next headline may have been unnoticed by many, perhaps because it is written in Hebrew, but it is very important and you can read it using a web browser translator:

Historic Ruling: "Hundreds of dunams in Gush Etzion - JNF"

"At the end of a legal process that lasted more than 22 years, and 74 years after they purchased the land from a Christian, stated this week the Supreme Court issued a rare and important ruling that the JNF, through its subsidiary Himnuta, owns hundreds of acres Gush Etzion.

Palestinians against the decision of the District Court in Jerusalem, also established is that the JNF is the owner of the land. Now, following the completion of the legal process run, could Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim, in the territory of the Council, to carry out the re-zoning and building hundreds of new housing units in one of the most desirable areas in Judea and Samaria."

Today is November 28th in Rome and elsewhere, but in Jerusalem and Gush Etzion it is the 20th day of Kislev, it is the ninth month on the twentieth of the month (counting from Nisan) and today most headlines and maps describe Judea and Samaria as the West Bank, but it is not.

If you have never felt compelled to read about the exiles of Judah, Levi and Benjamin that returned from captivity in Babylon to Jerusalem in the book of Ezra, today is a good day to do so.

Everyone needs to know these families and their leaders are very important as are their descendants in Jerusalem and Gush Etzion. We can know this because the heads of their households are named in Ezra chapter 8.

They are the faithful people that benefitted from the scroll of the decree of Cyrus that Darius had found in the Babylonian archives and he declared it to be carried out so that the Temple could be rebuilt and the gold and silver utensils returned with the exiles.

Like me, you can read the decree in Ezra 6. Notice it carried a severe public death penalty for anyone that violated it as well as a curse from Darius that Almighty God will overthrow anyone that changes his decree.

In re-reading Ezra, I've noticed something I had not seen before. Perhaps I am reading too far between the lines, but it seems to allude to cursing anyone with Darius' death penalty that attempts to change the name of God in Jerusalem because they destroy the house of God:
"And I issued a decree that any man who violates this edict, a timber shall be drawn from his house and he shall be impaled on it and his house shall be made a refuse heap on account of this.  
May the God who has caused His name to dwell there overthrow any king or people who attempts to change it, so as to destroy this house of God in Jerusalem. I, Darius, have issued this decree, let it be carried out with all diligence!"
We all know that today Darius' decree about the stones and wood is violated. The house of God is not standing on the Temple Mount and His name is changed by a people that claim the very spot He chose to place His name as well as Gush Etzion.

I continued to re-read king Artaxerxes decree on behalf of Ezra to release the people of Israel, the priests and the Levites who were willing to return and go up to Jerusalem according to the Torah of God. Artaxerxes not only released them to make Aliyah and return, he told them to take all the gold and silver that they could find along with freewill offerings and anything they needed from the royal treasury.

It's easy to see that Artaxerxes deeply respected the Torah and he fearfully understood it contained a curse for those that opposed it so he also instructed Ezra to appoint magistrates and judges to teach it to anyone ignorant of it. Ezra wrote:
"Blessed be the LORD, the God of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this in the king’s heart..." 
Ezra then carried out the king's degree while the king’s governors in the provinces "beyond the river" supported the returning people and the house of God.

As I read on about Ezra's prayer of confession at the evening offering because Israel had not separated themselves from the Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians and the Amorites I noticed Ezra's wake up call to never seek their peace or their prosperity.

Funny thing, it seems most of the world, the UN and the U.S. seek just that right now.

Ezra closed his prayer saying:
"O LORD God of Israel, You are righteous, for we have been left an escaped remnant, as it is this day; behold, we are before You in our guilt, for no one can stand before You because of this."
Then, I noticed the time stamp:
"So all the men of Judah and Benjamin assembled at Jerusalem within the three days. 
It was the ninth month on the twentieth of the month, and all the people sat in the open square before the house of God, trembling because of this matter and the heavy rain."
It's time to check the weather in Jerusalem, it didn't rain today, but freezing rain showers are prophetically expected in the open square of the Western Wall before the house of God. And if you want to learn the truth about Judea and Samaria you can start here: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: The Truth About the West Bank.

November 15, 2018: From Israel TodayANALYSIS: Widespread Anger in Israel After Ceasefire With Hamas  Yochanan Visser

"After 460 rockets were fired at southern Israel in a little more than one day, the Israeli government and Hamas entered an Egyptian brokered ceasefire on Tuesday evening.

The move came after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) started to call up reservists to reinforce "vital forces” along the border with Gaza a measure which was seen by many observers as a preparation for a ground incursion.

At the same time, the Israeli security cabinet was holding seven-hours-lasting consultations with the top of Israel’s security forces without coming to a vote about a large-scale military operation against Hamas and the other Palestinian terror groups in Gaza.

The news about the ceasefire angered many in Israel and the residents of the Gaza-belt in particular."

October 26, 2018: Today's Joshua and Caleb Report on the Trump Peace Plan provides independent Biblical insight from Israel.

Their website defines their purpose:

"The Joshua and Caleb Report is an internationally acclaimed and broadcast documentary TV series filmed and produced on the mountains of Judea and Samaria, Israel. Join hosts Joshua and Caleb Waller as they travel Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to hear the inspiring stories of those who live in the place that the world chooses to call the “West Bank.”

Unlike the negative reports of the 10 spies of old and much international media today, the Joshua and Caleb Report is clear: the Jewish people are alive, God’s promises are true, and there’s a beautiful story worth hearing from the heartland of Israel!"

Today's report is a wake up call and asks a BIG question: Is Trump’s peace plan really going to bring peace to the Middle East, or could it be disastrous to the residents of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria?"

I ask, will it bring on a full fledged 3rd intifada?

The 1st intifada broke out of Arab riots in November 1987 due to opposition to settlements in territories liberated in 1967. The Palestinian violence expanded from throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails to attacks with rifles, hand grenades and explosives. This intifada helped spur the Oslo peace process and it ended in September 1993 with the signing of the Oslo Accords.

The 2nd intifada began in September 2000 after Sharon visited the Temple Mount. On Elul 29, heavy rocks began raining down from the Temple Mount onto Jewish worshippers in the Western Wall plaza below and the Israeli border guard contingent opened fire.

Urged on by the Palestinian Islamic militant group Hamas, terror pressed in a deadly response and the Palestinian suicide bomber emerged with repeated youth martyr bombings. The wave of suicide bombings from the Palestinians had run their course by late 2005 and the breakdown of Oslo.

The two Arab uprisings resulted in the deaths of more than 5,000 Palestinians and some 1,400 Israelis.

For a while now, some watchmen have looked for the potential of a 3rd intifada. It has not happened, perhaps because there has been no MAJOR push on the peace plan to divide the land, but it appears that will soon be a reality and it may be smoldering already. As I recently noted, we are in the middle of a potential prophetic storm and earthquake and I pray that you feel the ground shaking and the wind blowing.

On March 30, 2018 residents of the Gaza Strip began a series of events that they call the "Great Return March." Carefully planned and led by Hamas, the campaign is actually an excuse for mass riots at the border between Gaza and Israel, with Hamas activists and gunmen hiding behind women and children as they try to breach the fence.

With the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018 that coincided with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding. As the embassy opening ceremony took place, violence erupted as dozens of Palestinians along the Gaza border fence protested the event. The outbreak of Gazan violence has continued with Hamas' "arson terror" from balloon and fire kites as well as rocket launches from Gaza causing over 1,300 fires.

However, May 2018 is not the beginning. Since 2015 over 700 rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israel. Not only that, a wave of terror began  in September 13, 2015 with stabbings and car ramming attacks that have continued. Until today, the three year terror wave has killed 70 Israelis according the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The murders to date in 2018 include these 11 wonderful Jewish people of blessed memory:

According to a report from The Times of Israel on October 22, 2018 : "Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner said Monday that a “reasonable” Palestinian leadership will be willing to negotiate with Israel based on the Trump administration’s peace plan, when it is eventually unveiled, and said the status quo was “not acceptable.”

It’s seems obvious that a 3rd intifada may be ready to unleash due a change in the status quo. The thing is the status quo engages both Temple Mount prayer as well as settlements in Judea and Samaria.

Which one does Kushner address?

September 27, 2018: Abbas did not mention the truth that he sanctions pension payments to the families of Palestinian terrorists that attack and murder Jews.

Instead, he launched a bizarre diatribe as he called the United Kingdom and the US to: “rectify this historic mistake,” and compensate the Palestinian people for pain and suffering over the past 50 years as he spoke of The Balfour Declaration of 1917. The Balfour Declaration is a short letter written 100 years ago by the way. He also called for an Arab two-state solution.

September 26, 2018: It's the third day of Sukkot aka Tabernacles and this is your wake up call from the UN today to keep awake and be sober...

Trump says he hopes to produce plan for Middle East peace within a few months

"President Trump said Wednesday he hopes to develop a Middle East peace plan by the end of this year.

“We’re working along on that,” Mr. Trump said in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “I really believe something will happen. It is a dream of mine to be able to get that done prior to the end of my first term.”

A dream of "peace and security" is noted in 1 Thessalonians 5. It is an echo of the prophetic warnings of Jeremiah 6.14; Ezekiel 13.10 and Micah 3.5 against false claims of peace. Paul's warning came before Rome's destruction that was brought on Jerusalem in 70AD. In that day the governing leadership of Rome promoted themselves through public media and political propaganda as those who provided peace and security. Sound familiar?
Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
From the Times of Israel: PM: Trump accepts Palestinian state would remain under Israeli security control

"NEW YORK — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that the United States accepts that even if a two-state solution is achieved to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel will retain overall security control of the West Bank.

Briefing Israeli reporters after a meeting with Donald Trump at which the US president for the first time explicitly endorsed a two-state solution as his preferred option, Nentayahu said that under any peace accord, Israel would retain security control from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

“I am sure that any US peace plan will reflect that principle to a great extent, maybe even entirely,” Netanyahu said.

“Some things are not to acceptable to us,” he added. “Make no mistake: Israel will not give up on security control west of the Jordan as long as I am prime minister. I think the Americans accept that principle.”"

The Washington Post put out this headline:

Trump endorses separate Palestinian state as goal of Mideast peace talks

"At a news conference later Wednesday, Trump expanded on his preference for two states, observing that “in one way it’s more difficult, because it’s a real estate deal,” but “in another way it works better because you have people governing themselves.”

He called himself “a facilitator” who would help the two sides reach the deal they both prefer.

“I think probably two-state is more likely, but you know what? If they do a single, if they do a double, I’m okay with it if they’re both happy,” he said.

During their meeting, Trump put the Israeli leader on the spot by saying that his decision last year to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem must be reciprocated by Israeli concessions to the Palestinians.

“Israel will have to do something that will be good for the other side,” Trump said in response to questions from reporters."

Thanks to USAToday and Livestream you can watch the President's comments at his press conference about the peace deal at the UN for yourself. To hear the question and the full comments on Israel go to 1:06:35.

July 22, 2018: You may think this post is a bit dramatic, perhaps ridiculous but is this statement only about money....

 Trump: Israel will pay 'higher price' for his Jerusalem recognition

"Addressing crowds at a campaign rally in Charleston, West Virginia, US president explains his recognition of the city as Israel's capital was necessary for future negotiations, but that Israel would be expected to make heavy concessions 'because they won a very big thing'; adds Palestinians will 'get something very good because it’s their turn next.'"

Trump's recognition of the 22 year old vote of the U.S. Congress in 1995 is very good and politically brave. What Trump may not know is that he is not the supreme real estate deal maker and he did not give away a prize. He may have just stepped into an earthquake zone.

Joel 3 describes a sequence:
  1. Turn back the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem...
  2. Gather all nations, and bring them to the valley...
  3. Recompense.
The Lord God goes on to tell the prophet Joel... Since you have… sold the sons of Judah and Jerusalem… in order to remove them far from their territory, behold, I am going to arouse them from the place where you have sold them, and return your recompense on your head.

We are in the middle of a prophetic time and I pray that you feel the ground shaking and the wind blowing. There are some amazing things that we must open our eyes to see.

Last year, the Jerusalem Embassy Act introduced in 1995 by Bob Dole that was adopted by the Senate and the House without a presidential signature on November 8, 1995 was engaged not by a signature on a presidential decree as many give Trump credit, but the fact is that is was the lack of his penmanship on a long standing Presidential waiver that the 1995 law was finally carried out.

On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of reunification of Jerusalem by 90-0. The jubilee resolution of the Senate affirmed the Jerusalem Embassy Act and called upon the President and all U.S. officials to abide by its provisions.

On December 6, 2017, President Trump followed the Senate's resolution request breaking the cycle of signing the Presidential waiver of the Jerusalem Embassy Act that as had been signed every six months by the three prior executives in office:

  1. Bill Clinton
  2. George W. Bush
  3. Barack Obama

The decision to no longer delay the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 ended 50 years after Jerusalem was restored to the nation in 1967 following the Six Day War, it was 100 years after the Balfour Declaration of 1917 set the stage for the nation born in a day that was declared by the United Nations in November 1947 and engaged on May 14, 1948.

Is Trump trying to make the deal of a century?

My concern is that while Trump has given no real clue as to his peace plan, he might require that Israel must choose withdrawal from portions of the West Bank aka Judea and Samaria. I pray he does not choose to follow Bill, George or Barack once again because the heart of the conflict and the truth of the West Bank is critical to restoration of Israel.

Yeshua-Jesus told His disciples when they asked about the timing of the restoration of Israel: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority...” (Acts 1:7)

Wake up and pray for the peace of Jerusalem!!

July 5, 2018:  Wake up and pray against this!! This article is a MUST READ Special Dispatch from MEMRI:

Hossein Salami (Source: Tasnim, Iran, June 8, 2018)

IRGC Deputy Commander Salami On Qods Day 2018: 'We Are Creating Might In Lebanon – Because We Want To Fight The Enemy From There With All Our Strength'

"To mark Qods (Jerusalem) Day, which in 2018 fell on June 8, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) deputy commander Hossein Salami participated in a Qods Day march in the city of Mashhad, and gave a speech as part of the Friday sermon in which he explained the rationale for destroying the State of Israel in Islamic revolutionary thought and in the vision of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Revolution, and his successor Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

In his speech, he underlined Iran's problem with Israel's existence, and how it should be resolved – primarily by military means, using Hizbullah, the Iranian regime's creation, which he called "a mighty power" with an arsenal of over 100,000 missiles aimed at Israel. Salami also named "the Islamic army in Syria" aimed at operating from the Golan Heights against Israel and awaiting orders "to eradicate the evil regime." The Palestinians, he said, are also now armed with missiles against Israel, and all these forces are acting in the spirit of jihad established and led by the regime of the Islamic Revolution against Israel, the Americans, and their allies.

Using threatening language against the West, Salami noted that Iran controlled the shipping lanes for bringing energy to it, and the sources of that energy, and added that economic prosperity is enjoyed by the West by virtue of the security for commercial shipping that Iran permits. Thus, he said, the European countries must not pressure Iran to enter into negotiations with them to limit its missile might and its expansion in the Middle East, which Iran absolutely opposes."

The following is a translation of the main points of Salami's Qods Day speech:

"The Problems Of The Islamic World Stem From The Existence Of The False, Counterfeit, Historically Rootless, And Identity-Less Regime Named Israel"

"The Islamic Revolution Created A Mighty Power Called Hizbullah... Today [It] Has Tremendous Might On The Ground That Can On Its Own Break The Zionist Regime"

"Iran Invites The Muslims To Jihad"

"Their Life's Vein Is In Our Hands; The Security Of Their Interests Is In Our Hands"

"We Have A Duty To Defend The Palestine Movement That Is Now Fighting... We Are Creating Might In Lebanon Because We Want To Fight Our Enemy From There With All Our Strength"

June 13, 2018: Had the United Nations existing in David's day they would have likely condemned him for his sling.  Today...  United Nations condemns excessive Israeli force against Palestinians

May 27, 2018: Time for a wake up call to stop the U.S. funding of UNRWA, the United Nations Relief Agency and the schools that UNRWA runs and supports in Gaza.

May 17, 2018: Turkey urges Islamic world to unite against Israel, calls summit

"Turkey has urged Islamic countries to review their ties with Israel after dozens of Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire on the Gaza border.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told his ruling party in parliament that Ankara would call an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

"Islamic countries should without fail review their relations with Israel," Premier Yildirim said, adding, “The Islamic world should move as one, with one voice, against this massacre."

Yildirim said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who currently holds the rotating chairmanship of the body, called the OIC summit on Friday.

Yildirim said that after the summit at 3:00 pm a giant rally would be held at the vast Yenikapi meeting area in Istanbul under the slogan of "Stop the Oppression" to express solidarity with the Palestinians."

April 27, 2017: It seems everyone wants to know the answer, how can we have peace in Israel?

This is the wake up call, and it comes from a Palestinian!

The UN has been debating the question for 70 years without an answer. Now, the answer is given by a Palestinian man named Mazzen. The name Mazzen is Arabic, it means "to make." Watch this video from Hananya Naftali, in it Mazzen tells the world how "to make" peace.

March 7, 2018: This is a wake up call on Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
"Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city." Zechariah 14:1-2
Turkish Newspaper Close To President Erdogan Calls To Form Joint Islamic Army To Fight Israel

"On December 12, 2017, ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, the Turkish daily Yeni Şafak, which is close to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his ruling AKP party, published an article titled "A Call for Urgent Action," which also appeared on the paper's website under the title “What If an Army of Islam Was Formed against Israel?"

The article called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint "Army of Islam" to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It notes that such a joint army will greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment and budget, and presents statistics to prove this. It also advocates establishing joint bases for the army's ground, air and naval forces that will arrive from all over the Muslim world to besiege Israel, while noting that Pakistan, as the only nuclear country, has "a special status" among the OIC countries. An interactive map provides information on military forces stationed in various locations and the role they can play in the potential joint Muslim attack on Israel."

PRAYER ALERT January 15, 2018: Palestinian leaders call for suspension of recognition of Israel

This is your wake up call as: "Palestinian leaders voted on Monday to call for the suspension of recognition of Israel in a move with potentially deep implications as they met in response to US President Donald Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

While withdrawing the Palestine Liberation Organisation's recognition of Israel could spark international backlash, it was unclear whether the vote was binding.

A previous vote by the same Palestinian Central Council, a high-ranking arm of the PLO, in 2015 to suspend security coordination with Israel was never implemented. That vote was also reaffirmed on Monday.

However, even if the move goes no further, the vote was another expression of Palestinian fury over Trump's Jerusalem declaration and what they see as the White House's attack on their long bid for statehood.

On Sunday as he opened the meeting, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, who voted in favour of the suspension, called Trump's peace efforts the "slap of the century."

The vote ordered the Palestine Liberation Organisation to suspend its recognition of Israel until it "recognises the state of Palestine", cancels its annexation of east Jerusalem and stops settlement activity, a statement said."

PRAYER ALERT December 9, 2018: Erekat: No peace talks until US revokes Jerusalem recognition

Wake up: "Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Tuesday said the Palestinians would reject all United States-sponsored peace talks until Washington rescinded its December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“The continued American talk about deals to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or calling for negotiations or talks is unacceptable to the Palestinian leadership, as long as Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not revoked,” Erekat told the official Voice of Palestine radio station, according to the official PA news site Wafa.

When US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he “removed Jerusalem from any negotiations,” said Erekat."

PRAYER ALERT January 7, 2018: Five years ago. I started this ongoing as a wake up call because the Bible says all the nations that come against Jerusalem have a big problem:
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:9
Today six Arab ministers met in Jeddah, Jordan today to come against Jerusalem. They were from from Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Palestinians and Jordan. Arabs seek recognition for Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital

"JEDDAH: Arab foreign ministers on Saturday stressed that peace in the Middle East is impossible without addressing the Palestinian cause on the basis of a two-state resolution with East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.

“The Arab League will seek international recognition of the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital after Washington recognized the holy city as Israel’s capital,” Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi announced at a joint news conference with Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit following talks in Amman on Jerusalem’s status, also attended by the foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and the Palestinian Authority, as well as the UAE minister of state for foreign affairs.

“There is a political decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and we will strive to reach an international political decision to recognize a Palestinian state with (East) Jerusalem as its capital,” Safadi said.

He added that the Arab states would work collectively with the international community to secure international recognition of East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state, adding that the meeting was also used to agree on steps to ensure no other country recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“We reiterated that no peace or security can be achieved in the Middle East without the establishment of a viable Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, and in accordance with all relevant international references,” Safadi said, stressing that peace is the only way to resolve the Palestinian cause, being the only strategic option to meet the legitimate and rightful demands of the Palestinian people."

PRAYER ALERT December 27, 2017: Iranian Parliament's Bill Requires Gov't to Recognize Jerusalem as Palestinian Capital Forever

This is a wake up call about Iran: "TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian legislators approved a bill which requires the government to support Jerusalem al-Quds as the permanent capital city of Palestine.

The bill was approved within the framework of a double-urgency plan on Wednesday with 207 yes votes and no opposition or abstentions.

The parliamentarians had voted to the double-urgency plan on Sunday.

Iran has long been a staunch supporter of the Palestinian cause and called on Muslims across the world to unite against the occupying regime of Israel which it does not recognize."

PRAYER ALERT December 21, 2017: Today is the day after Hanukkah, the feast of lights has ended and it is time for a wake up call. 

General Assembly demands all States comply with UN resolutions regarding status of Jerusalem

UN "By an overwhelming majority, Member States in the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday “demanded” that all countries comply with Security Council resolutions regarding the status of Jerusalem, following an earlier decision by the United States to recognize the Holy City as the capital of Israel.

Through a resolution adopted by a recorded vote of 128 in favour to nine against (Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Togo, United States), with 35 abstentions, the 193-member Assembly expressed “deep regret” over recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem and stressed that the Holy City “is a final status issue to be resolved through negotiations in line with relevant UN resolutions.”

Action in the Assembly today follows a failed attempt by the Security Council on Monday adopt a similar text reflecting regret among the body’s members about “recent decisions regarding the status of Jerusalem,” with a veto from the United States, a permanent member of the Council.

Ahead of that failed resolution, Nickolay Mladenov, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, told the Security Council that the security situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory had become more tense in the wake of US President Donald Trump's decision on 6 December to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Subsequently, Yemen and Turkey, in their respective capacities as Chair of the Arab Group and the Chair of the Summit of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation, requested the President of the General Assembly to “urgently resume’ the tenth emergency special session of the General Assembly in accordance with the so-named ‘Uniting for peace’ procedure.

This procedure, under Assembly resolution 377 (1950), is a pathway around a Security Council veto."

At this same time in 2016, President Barack Obama abstained from the UN Security Council's 14-0 vote allowing the Council to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as a "flagrant violation" of international law.

Trump has warned he will cut foreign aid to nations that oppose the U.S. position on Jerusalem. I'm not sure what that means... will we see cuts in our $8 billion in annual aid to the UN, or our USAID from the American people to other nations?

Perhaps the warning will fall on the $1.2 billion we give to Egypt who drafted the December 18th Security Council resolution as well as the $305 million we provide Yemen who requested the emergency special session of the General Assembly and sponsored the resolution today on behalf of the 22 member nations of the Arab League, or the $155 million we give Turkey who teamed up with Yemen against Jerusalem on behalf of the 57 member nations of Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Huge amounts of annual US foreign aid is currently provided to four nations that oppose the truth about Jerusalem:

1. Iraq: $5.28 billion
2. Afghanistan: $5.06 billion
3. Egypt: $1.23
4. Jordan: $1.21 billion

The money has a better purpose.

PRAYER ALERT December 18, 2017: Nikki Haley has raised her right arm for our sovereign nation as a wake up call as... US Vetoes UN Resolution Rejecting Washington’s Recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli Capital

"UNITED NATIONS — The Trump administration wielded its first U.N. veto Monday, blocking a Security Council resolution that rejected the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy there.

“The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy,” Ambassador Nikki Haley told council members.

The U.S. was isolated in the vote, with the other 14 members voting in favor of the text.

The draft resolution did not specifically mention the U.S. announcement, but noted its “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.” It also said, “Any decision and actions which purport to have altered the character, status, or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded.""

Palestinians call for emergency UN meeting on Jerusalem

"AMMAN/NEW YORK: Palestinian leaders will call for an emergency meeting of the UN General Assembly after the US on Monday vetoed a Security Council resolution on the status of Jerusalem.

The veto was “unacceptable and threatens the stability of the international community because it disrespects it,” said Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina.

Palestinians would continue to insist on the rule of international law no matter how many times the US cast its veto, Anees Sweidan, head of the Palestinian international affairs department, told Arab News.

“We will be back in the UN Security Council and we will also go to the General Assembly, where the US has no veto power, in order to insist that no solution can be imposed on Palestinians in regard to our capital, Jerusalem.”"

PRAYER ALERT December 10, 2017: Arab ministers demand Trump rescind Jerusalem decision

"CAIRO: Arab foreign ministers on Saturday called on the United States to rescind its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and for the international community to recognize a Palestinian state.

In a resolution after an emergency meeting in Cairo, Arab League member ministers said that the United States had “withdrawn itself as a sponsor and broker” of the Israel Palestinian peace process with its controversial move.

The ministers met at the league’s headquarters in Cairo to formulate a response to the US decision, which has been roundly criticized in the Arab world and internationally.

The move by US President Donald Trump is “denounced and condemned,” Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit told the ministers at the beginning of the meeting.

The ministers agreed on “demanding that the United States rescind its decision on Jerusalem...and the calling on the international community to recognize the state of Palestine...with east Jerusalem as its capital.”

They also said they would head to the United Nations Security Council for a resolution condemning the US decision as a violation of international law.

The decision has sparked protests and clashes in Palestinian territories since Trump announced the decision on Wednesday which drew criticism from every other member of the UN Security Council at an emergency meeting on Friday."

PRAYER ALERT December 6, 2017: Today is the 18th of Kislev, 70 years and 8 days ago on the 16th of Kislev, November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 181, it was a paradigm shift which recommended the creation of independent Jewish and Arab states and international status for the city of Jerusalem.

Yet, fifty years ago, Jerusalem was re-unified with Israel when IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City and brought the Temple Mount back under Israel's sovereignty.

Six months after UN 181 was adopted in 1947, President Truman recognized Israel.

Today is another paradigm shift, a wake up call to remind us of the 70 years of exile that Cyrus ended. We ma now be pointing toward the burden of Zechariah 12-14:21.

In 1947, the Palestinians rejected the adoption of the Resolution by the General Assembly and in May 1948, war broke out because three Arab nations attacked and invaded from Egypt, Jordan and Syria with military support from Iraq.

Peace was finally declared when Jordan and Israel negotiated a division of the city, with East Jerusalem coming under Jordanian control. This was formalized by the Rhodes Agreement in March 1949.

President Trump has declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel just as David Ben-Gurion declared "Jewish Jerusalem is an organic, inseparable part of the State of Israel" in December 1949.

Trump's declaration occurred 50 years (a Jubilee) after the liberation of Jerusalem when the city came under Israeli control once again in 1967 following the Six Day War. That liberation occurred 50 years (a Jubilee) after the Balfour Declaration in November 1917. Lord Balfour's letter came at the end of 400 years (8 Jubilees) of Ottoman rule in Jerusalem and supported the establishment of a "Jewish national home in Palestine." Notably, the Ottoman end came in December (the month of dedication) when General Edmund Allenby walked into Jerusalem on December 11, 1917.

Clearly, in partnership God uses government leaders during a Jubilee to engage His purpose for Jerusalem.

The Bible tells us the Jubilee is a year of restoration, it occurs every 50 year's on God's timetable:
"And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family." Leviticus 25:10
By the look of it, clearly the Jubilee is a leap year, not in a tradition way, but in Biblical focus on the prophecies God gave the prophets. It proves that the Old Testament is not old and that it's never been done away with.

The Palestinians and the UN will reject Trump's declaration despite the fact that the title deed to the city is found in the most read book on the planet.

Believe it or not, 2017 has been a double portion blessing for Jerusalem. Unnoticed, eight months ago on April 6, 2017, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation recognized so-called West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

It seems no one raised an eyebrow, after there was no mention of an Embassy move. In fact, you may not have known about it unless you were digging deep for the story, after all, Putin was not front and center, but he was there praying at the Kotel (Western Wall) in June 2012 before Trump arrived in May five years later. You should know why Putin was there...

Putin's Chat at the Kotel:

"Later, after visiting the Kotel tunnels, Putin broke away from his security circle and approached the man who had called out to him.

Leaning over the police barricade, the former KGB officer began to chat with the frum Jewish man who apparently is an immigrant from the former Soviet Union.

The man related the importance of the Kotel to the Jewish nation, and mentioned the Beis Hamikdash and Shlomo Hamelech who first built it.

"That's exactly the reason I came here - to pray for the Temple to be built again," Putin responded, according to a report on the Bechadrei Chareidim website."

COL Live has a video of the exchange.

Trump was not the first, but the bottomline is the first sitting President in American history to visit and pray at the Western Wall has made a proclamation and it includes moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

The thing about the division declared to the prophets is this: nothing in the President's statement addresses boundaries between East and West with the US commitment to move its Embassy, nor does it mention future concessions that must come. Jerusalem is not a bargaining chip, not even East Jerusalem but it will be used as one.

We are likely staring Zechariah in the eye 2,500 years (50th Jubilee) after the prophet wrote God's words about the future of 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." Zechariah 12:3
A Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem that includes the storied places of the Bible including the Mount of Olives, the Old City, the Temple Mount with its Western Wall, the City of David and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is still open-ended as the President called on the status quo on the Temple Mount to be maintained.

So, if you love and believe The God of Israel, you must support His covenant word given Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is your wake up call!

Full Video and Transcript: Trump’s Speech Recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel

PRAYER ALERT November 30, 2017: Eyes wide open… in New York stones cast by votes were picked up in the UN General Assembly Hall and thrown against Jerusalem and the Temple Mount by the 151 gathered at the UN that speaking falsehood to one another with a double heart as they strutted on every side of the podium with vileness exalted among 6 resolutions at the 60th meeting of the 72nd Session of the General Assembly.

Declaring Israel’s Actions in Syrian Golan, East Jerusalem ‘Null and Void’, General Assembly Adopts Six Resolutions on Palestine, Middle East

"Concluding its annual debate on the question of Palestine and the situation in the Middle East, the General Assembly adopted six resolutions today — including two declaring Israel’s actions in the Syrian Golan and East Jerusalem “null and void” — as several delegates voiced concern that those texts perpetuated a one-sided view that isolated and targeted a single Member State.

After the debate concluded, the Assembly adopted the draft resolution “Jerusalem” (document A/72/L.11) by a recorded vote of 151 in favour to 6 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, United States), with 9 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan, Togo).

By that text, the Assembly reiterated that any actions by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem were illegal and therefore null and void."

"The vote came the day after the UN marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on Nov. 29, the 70th anniversary of the day UN General Assembly voted in favor of a resolution that led to the creation of Israel."

Egypt’s representative, Amr Abdellatif Aboulatta called for an end to what he called "Israel’s excavation or destruction of holy sites." No wonder, the truth is Israel’s forensic archeology proves without a doubt that the Temple Mount, the City of king David and indeed all of Jerusalem confirms the allotment of the city and the boundary declared in the Bible as belonging to Judah as shown in Joshua 15:1-12.

The US voted opposing the six resolutions not only against the boundaries of Judah but the inheritance land allotment for the people of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim detailed in Joshua 16.

Manasseh was given the area that the UN calls the "occupied" Syrian Golan. The latest UN resolution that opposes God's word for this area is document A/71/L.17. The Biblical fact is the Golan is not a broad area, it was a town in Bashan given to Manasseh as a city of refuge for the Levites. Golan is the most northerly of the three cities of refuge East of the Jordan river (see Deuteronomy 4:43; Joshua 20:8; Joshua 21:27 and 1Chronicles 6:71).

Further southwest, Joseph was buried at Shechem where his sister Dinah was raped and humiliated, the same place he sought out looking for his 10 brothers before his exodus to Egypt and his descendant's slavery. His family member, Joshua ben Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim brought Joseph’s bones back from Egypt to Shechem and buried them there in the pass that juts through the mountains of Ephraim, Ebal and Gerizim near the so-called West Bank city of Nablus in the area allotted to the tribe of Ephraim.
"As for the bones of Joseph, which the people of Israel brought up from Egypt, they buried them at Shechem, in the piece of land that Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money. It became an inheritance of the descendants of Joseph." Joshua 24:32
As the UN debates the land areas given to Judah, Manasseh and Ephraim I wonder if we are seeing the US as one 'like' Ephraim, a brother, a mighty man. After all, Ephraim was especially called to be a watchman.

We know The Lord has said that he has set Ephraim, according to the promises of his birthright, as first born son (see Jeremiah 31:9), Ephraim is to receive blessings being those of presidency or leadership.

The watchman eyes are with Ephraim. Ephraim is called to play a leadership role in the last days with Judah. Will we be like Ephraim and drop the ball?

Both call Zion the City of Truth. Zechariah 8:3-13

Ephraim comes from the West. Hosea 11:10

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem… how often I wanted to gather your children together…” Luke 13:34

Today in Washington DC, the headline news is that Trump mulling steps to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital:

"The White House is considering new steps toward formally recognizing a unified Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the U.S. embassy there, sources told ABC News.

President Donald Trump faces a Monday deadline to decide whether or not to sign another six-month waiver of a 1995 law that mandates the embassy move, according to the State Department. Trump and his last three predecessors have each delayed an embassy move in part to facilitate peace talks with the Palestinians who oppose it."

Palestinian president Abbas will threaten violence and seek others like the League of Arab States and Islam's own version of the UN, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to rally behind him against Jerusalem's recognition as Israel's eternal capital city. Islam will react like a horse in panic, and Abbas its rider stricken with madness (see Zechariah 12:1-6).

Why does the truth of Jerusalem strike panic and madness?

Trump's decision on Jerusalem is not his, it was made 22 years ago by public law of the United States passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995, with Congress requiring that the American embassy in Israel be moved from Tel Aviv and 'dedicated' to the city of our Great King. Trump unlike Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama has under constitutional authority simply agreed with Congress and the US no longer waives its own law unsigned by President Bill Clinton that became the rule for our Israeli embassy on November 8, 1995.

Yet in Israel, Jerusalem has stood for 3,000 years in both glory and desolation as the eternal city of Zion. On December 5, 1949 the Israeli Cabinet declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and on January 23, 1950, the First Knesset proclaimed that "Jerusalem was, and had always been, the capital of Israel."

Knowing the timing of all this, it is amazing to consider just what time of year we are in, it is the time leading up to the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication.

The Hebrew word for "dedication" is none other than "Hanukkah" and while many assume the 8-day celebration we know today began with the Maccabees, it started in Exodus 7 when Moses dedicated the altar of the Tabernacle. It was repeated with Solomon as shown in 2Chronicles 7 where we see the 8 days re-appear.

Check out the Hebrew word in both places for dedication. The awesome thing is that Messiah Yeshua chose this winter time and Solomon's porch in Jerusalem to reveal who He is and His mission. John 10 tells the amazing proclamation of the light of the world... "I and The Father are One."
"At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon."
John's record reveals that the dedication called the festival of lights was not in the fall 7th month as it was with Solomon, it was winter, the 9th month in honor of the Maccabean revolt when Antiochus Epiphanes IV and his Greek-led Seleucid army used native militia to pillage the Temple and desecrate Torah observance in Jerusalem declaring its precepts null and void in 168BC but the Maccabee's rededicated the altar and the Temple.

In the grand scheme of God's plan, they had too, it had to be sanctified, prepared for the arrival of Messiah.

Believe it or not, the Greek ancient army was concentrated in northern Syria, the upper Euphrates and Media. The same places that have been ravaged today by ISIS and terrorism against Christians and Syria’s slaughter of its own people.

Now, the UN by 6 draft resolutions is turning its back once again on Israel and history by attempting to pillage the Temple Mount and desecrate Jerusalem once again declaring falsehood by calling Israel an "occupying power" saying its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void.

The UN had better take notice of Psalm 12 and Zechariah 12:9 because the Seleucid army is long gone, lost in history. Not only that, the Seleucids, like today's Muslim divide of Sunni and Shia imploded through civil war between the northern and southern branches of the royal Seleucid Empire.

The timing of this is amazing. Jesus' visit during Hanukkah celebrated the re-dedication of the Temple in 162 BC on the 25th of Kislev... that Biblical date arrives in just two weeks and the burden of the stone is increasing for those gathered together against it.
"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." Zechariah 12:3
PRAYER ALERT September 25, 2017: Pray for the safety and protection of Mosab Hassan Yousef. He told the truth at the UN and exposed the liars.

PRAYER ALERT September 20, 2017: Praise God... Danny Danon the new Deputy President of the United Nations General Assembly was not required to call a thorn of a man representing Philistia to the podium.

Abbas talks like he has a spear weighing three hundred shekels, but the fact is Abbas was born in Safed under British rule after the Ottoman reign of the Turks ended. The Ottomans has conducted mass killings and beheadings during the Armenian Genocide that resulted in the death of some 1.5 million Armenian and Greek Christians across Asia Minor and the Middle East. The Ottomans ruled the Mid East world in terror for some 400 years by its jihadi Caliphate.

The land of the Armenians has played a part of the Bible since the beginning. Mount Ararat, where the arc of Noah touched down was a part of Armenia until 1921 when the Soviets took it and then gave it to Turkey in 1921 by the Treaty of Kars.

Since then, America has been strangely silent about the Armenian genocide as the United States remained neutral in its official recognition of its horrific massacre, the largest of Christianity.

This has to end, we must recognize this evil and call it out.

Today, there is still a connection to the Armenian genocide. Mahmoud Abbas is the successor to the Egyptian born Yasser Arafat and Abbas was born under United Kingdom rule.

Yet he now points blame at Britain and calls on the UN to divide God's promise and give it away in deception. Before Abbas or Arafat there was never a Palestinian king or President, no Palestinian police and no army, no Palestinian constitution, no international recognition, no Palestinian territory or city and certainly and no Palestinian border.

Until May 28, 1964, no Palestinian flag or emblem existed.

The only thing close was the flag of the 1916 Arab Revolt against the Ottomans that was begun by Sherif Hussein bin Ali with the goal of obtaining independence from the command of the Ottoman Turks to create an Arab state ranging from Aleppo in Syria to Aden in Yemen.

That plan fell in the dust as did the flag.

This is a wake up call... Abbas tells UN it’s responsible for ending Israeli ‘apartheid’

Palestinian leader says two-state solution in jeopardy; demands apology from UK over 1917 Balfour Declaration.

"“Has the international community surrendered to the fact that Israel is a country above the law?” he asked. “The continuation of the occupation is a disgrace for the international community.”

“There is no place left for the state of Palestine and this is not acceptable,” he said.

“The two-state solution is in jeopardy,” he said, warning, “We cannot as Palestinians stand still in the face of this threat.”

“Our choice is the two-state solution on the 1967 borders,” Abbas said, “and we will grant every chance for the efforts being undertaken by President Donald Trump and the Quartet and international community as a whole to achieve a historic agreement that brings the two-state solution to reality, enabling the state of Palestine with its capital East Jerusalem to live in peace and security side by side with Israel.”

The Quartet refers to the foursome of the United States, Russia, the United Nations and the European Union guiding the deception of the Middle East peace process.

After the tirade of lies... we have another Quartet wake up call from a seemingly neutral America ready to make a deal happen...

"Trump, in response, told the Palestinian leader that “we have a pretty good shot — maybe the best shot ever” at achieving peace in the entire Middle East. “I certainly will devote everything within my heart and within my soul to get that deal made.”"

Trump also met briefly with Netanyahu at 72nd UN General Assembly.

PRAYER ALERT September 18, 2017: Just look at the craftsman of Iran this week as a mainstream Iranian Army commander has threatened to destroy Israel because it will not keep quiet about the Iranian nuclear deal.

The headline warning for the Tasnim News Agency reads: Tiniest Mistake Would Cause Israel’s Immediate Demise: Iran Army Chief

"TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of Iran’s Army reminded Israel that the Zionist regime could exist for a maximum of 25 more years, saying Tel Aviv would be signing its own death warrant by making the tiniest mistake over its remaining lifetime.

The notion that the Zionist regime of Israel will not be existing 25 years from now does not mean that it would have a full time span of 25 years to live, Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said on Monday, warning the Zionist regime that any mistake would raze Haifa and Tel Aviv to the ground.

Israel should remain silent and count down the days to its death, because any minor mistake would lead to its demise as fast as lightning, the general added.

Back in December 2016, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed high optimism that the Israeli regime will perish within the next quarter of a century."

Meanwhile, in Israel another story unfolded today: In first, US establishes permanent military base in Israel

"For the first time in history, the United States on Monday established an official, permanent military base in Israel: an air defense base in the heart of the Negev desert.

Dozens of US Air Force soldiers will call home the new base, located inside the Israeli Air Force’s Mashabim Air Base, west of the towns of Dimona and Yerucham.

Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, head of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Command, announced the establishment of the installation on Monday evening.

“It’s nothing short of historic,” he said. It demonstrates the “years-old alliance between the United States and the State of Israel.”"

PRAYER ALERT July 7, 2017: Once again UNESCO's World Heritage committee rejects history and the Bible as the committee voted 12-3 in favor of Palestinian lies of threats against Hebron just days after the same committee condemned Israel's so-called occupation of East Jerusalem. The planet is infested with deception and filled with lies about Israel.

The UNESCO 'Balak" resolution as I will call it another in the long line of curses. It refers only to Hebron's "Islamic history" providing a few dates that ignore 3,500 years of Jewish Biblical connection to the city as UNESCO's press release credits Islam's late arrival in the long recorded history of the area.

Hebron is the burial place of the Patriarchs of the Bible including Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as well as Sarah, Rebecca and Leah. This UNESCO propaganda is not only 'fake news' but 'fake history' and pathetic. As recorded in Genesis 23 of the Bible, Abraham purchased the very spot that UNESCO declares as Islamic which is in fact the Machpelah field and its cave in Hebron located 18 miles south of Jerusalem, which Abraham purchased from Ephron the Hittite for 400 silver shekels and where King David was called by God to move to Hebron and reign as King of Israel for seven years.

Other areas of 'fake history' include the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which was purchased by the very same King David from Araunahthe Jebusite for fifty shekels of silver (2Samuel 24) as well as the Palestinian claim to Nablus which is actually Shechem where Joseph's Tomb and Jacob's Well are located 114 miles due north of Jerusalem. Jacob bought this city for 100 pieces of money from the sons of Hamor, Shechem’s father (Genesis 33). It later became known by the name Nablus only after Roman Emperor Vespasian raped and pillaged the area and renamed it Flavia Neapolis some 550 years before Muhammed ever preached Islam in Mecca, Saudi Arabia or Medina.

So, the truth is simple, very old yet still obvious. Judea and Samaria (aka the West Bank) from north to south is marked by land deeds purchased by Abraham and Jacob and the visible, tangible proof of the Bible remains before the world today in the historic burial tombs of the heroes of the book of Genesis, not the Koran nor the Balak-like resolutions of the UN or UNESCO. I mention Balak because this week the Torah portion (Numbers 22:2 to 25:9) is about Balak the destroyer, the sorcerer, the false prophet that was a hired hand of Baalam given the mission to curse Israel with words.

The amazing thing about Hebron is that the name of the first land purchase recorded in the Bible remains the same. Hebron in Hebrew literally means "association" and the city's "association" with the Bible remains unchanged by 'fake news' or 'fake history.'

The deceptive 'fake news' burden of UNESCO is disturbing as the organization founded in 1945 declares Hebron is under immediate threat saying its historic walls are in danger from excavations and projects. UNESCO's resolutions flies in the face of their own constitution that states the purpose of the organization is:

     “to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations.”

UNESCO is leading the world to the fulfillment of a dire prophecy:
"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." Zechariah 12:3
PRAYER ALERT April 6, 2017: Will America will follow the right path to recognize Jerusalem?

Believe it or not, today is historic. It is the 10th of Nisan and some important events have happened on this day. It is the day of the selection of a lamb for Passover in Exodus 12:3 and Mark 11 shows us on the 9th of Nisan Jesus returned to Bethany and on the 10th He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey as the crowds waved palm branches and shouted:

"Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!"

Those words are from are lines from one of the Psalms of Ascents Psalm 118:25-26. The Jewish people knew the Bible and lived out the prophecy of the King: "Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey's colt." Zechariah 9:9

John's record says the crowds came "not only on account of Him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead."

But at that moment the disciples missed the meaning of the Psalms of Ascents. John 12:16-19 tells us:
"His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had done this sign. So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.”"
Today, is that same Hebrew day, its Nisan 10 on the Biblical calendar it is the day the crowds in Jerusalem shouted, "Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!" and the same day that a key UN Security Council and Quartet member has stated Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The timing seems so bizarre, that's exactly why Yeshua rode into town, it was and is the capital of the Promised Land.

Today is another important day for modern Israel.

With no pomp, no ceremony, no Putin and no PR, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation released its statement today. Read it all here: Foreign Ministry statement regarding Palestinian-Israeli settlement. The Russian declaration made by Russian Minister Sergey Lavrov's office divides the city between East and West along the Green Line demarcation lines set out in the 1949 Armistice agreements with Egypt, Jordan and Syria that declared Israel in control of the western half, and Jordan in control of the eastern half, which includes the Old City of David, which is Zion that dates back to at least 1,000BC.

Did you notice, there is no PA present and the political Green Lines are not permanent borders? Today, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated:

"We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."

In the end, the Russians reject archaeological findings; the allotment in the Bible (Joshua 15), the 1980 Jerusalem Law and 1967, when Israel annexed East Jerusalem and gave its Arab inhabitants (like the Jebusites) permanent residency status when they became entitled to apply for Israeli citizenship.

What goes around comes around:
"And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, who said to David, “You will not come in here, but the blind and the lame will ward you off”—thinking, “David cannot come in here. Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the city of David." 2Samuel 5:6-7

"On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates, the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites and the Jebusites.” Genesis 15:18-21
The reason?
"He is the LORD our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.
He remembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his sworn promise to Isaac,
which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as your portion for an inheritance.” Psalm 105:7-11
PRAYER ALERT March 26, 2017: Did Paul foresee this letter?

Paul posted his warning about peace and security in 1Thessalonians 5:3-4 and his advice is to watch and be sober, put on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. He said:
"While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief." 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4
PRAYER ALERT January 17, 2017: Led by Sweden's Security Council Council President Olof Skoog, prophecy is before our eyes at 2:29 on in UN video #1 the adoption of 2334 is recommended as a milestone by the President following Bolivia's presentation. Bolivia said that the UN Charter is worthless if 2334 if not pressed forward.

Bolivia reiterates November 29, 1947 and 70 years have passed and 50 years since 1967 and concludes stating there are 3 priorities for 2334... implementation, implementation and implementation.

Skoog recommended adoption for 2334 and continually repeat this year marks 50 years of occupation of Palestinian territories and violation of UN Resolutions.

Check Indonesia's Dian Triansyah Djani's desktag. He is the CEIRPP Vice Chair speaking in the opening in UN video #2 as the nations gnash their teeth against Israel.

Video #2 is where you will hear many mind bending lies on how so many nations oppose and hate Israel calling them law breakers and illegal occupiers of God's Promised Land. The committee has the audacity to allow the Syrian representative to speak against Israel. He starts at minute 21:20. Despite the mind bending horrors of 400,000 people being killed in Syria from civil war since the Arab Spring began in 2011.

He ignores the fact that archeologists have discovered 34 synagogues in the Golan Heights dating from the late Roman period. He obviously has not been there to see the beautiful farmland and vineyards planted there that were promised in the Scriptures.

And of course he never mentions the Golan Heights were included as part of the Palestine Mandate ratified by The League of Nations in 1923, which was set forth with the purpose of creating a national home for the Jewish people including this area or the fact that from 1948-1967, the Golan Heights was utilized by the Syrians in order to attack Israeli communities in the Hula Valley.

The Syrian representative deceives and spews venom stating Israel has looted the Golan and planted 20 million land mines across the Golan Heights. He fails to mention that the protection zones are clearly demarcated zones and that the reality is that some 1.2 million mines were placed during the 1950s and 1960s in the Arava Valley and along the Jordan River but the Knesset passed the Minefield Clearance Act and the Israel Mine Action Authority began clearing minefields in 2012. His lies on this begin at minute 25:15 and he vomits words saying Israel treats Syrians in its hospitals so they can go back to Syria to terrorize.

His lies begin at minute 21:20 and his comments from the pit of hell end at 30:05. If you watch, you will notice his microphone blinking red for half of his deception to the world as each representative is given just four minutes, yet he took twice that time uninterrupted to deceive as his teeth are set on edge. Those that believe these lies eat sour grapes.
"But everyone shall die for his own iniquity. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.

But everyone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge” Jeremiah 31:29-30
PRAYER ALERT January 15, 2017: Some 70 nations met today and the Paris peace conference agrees on two-state solution in Mideast — but neither Israel nor Palestinians take part

"A conference aimed at kick-starting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians concluded Sunday with more than 70 countries and international organizations pledging their support for a two-state solution as the only way to achieve lasting peace in the region.

However, neither Israel nor the Palestinians were represented at the conference in Paris, raising questions about its ultimate value. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas had welcomed the event, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu branded it futile."

In the final statement:

"They underscored the importance of the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002 as a comprehensive framework for the resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, thus contributing to regional peace and security.

They welcomed international efforts to advance Middle East peace, including the adoption of United Nations Security Council resolution 2334 on 23 December 2016 which clearly condemned settlement activity, incitement and all acts of violence and terror, and called on both sides to take steps to advance the two-state solution on the ground ; the recommendations of the Quartet on 1 July 2016 ; and the United States Secretary of State’s principles on the two-state solution on 28 December 2016."

Outside the meeting, Jean-Marc Ayrault France's Foreign Minister Bashes Trump's Plan to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem saying it would be a provocation with 'extremely serious consequences'.

Read more and the final conference statement at: Haaretz.

Despite the mass media and political propaganda, many stood against the lies of deception opposing the covenant given Abraham at the peace conference today with the prayers of many supporting the Biblical covenant of the Promised Land. Even Kerry called Netanyahu in an answer to many prayers as he promised no further UN action against Israel.

Words always start trouble and the UN has armed and aimed their weapon of division with 70 nations just as the opening words of the Torah portion "Shemot" this very week include these:
“Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them... Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens."
Without Trump, Netanyahu and even Abbas in the picture, 70 nations stood today in Paris with the ultimate goal to afflict Israel with heavy burdens against the Old City, “East Jerusalem” as well as Judea and Samaria as pain and great labor engulfs Damascus, Syria and Mosul, Iraq in the fighting against Hamas supported ISIS. Jeremiah warned of events in Syria and Iraq:
“Damascus has become feeble, she turned to flee,
and panic seized her;
anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her,
as of a woman in labor.
How is the famous city not forsaken,
the city of my joy? Jeremiah 49:24-25

“The king of Babylon heard the report of them,
and his hands fell helpless;
anguish seized him,
pain as of a woman in labor. Jeremiah 50:43
PRAYER ALERT January 12, 2017: Perhaps thinking Trump is Catholic, Mahmoud Abbas wants to push the Pope on Trump to stop the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem. By i24news: Abbas to meet Pope ahead of Palestinian embassy opening in Vatican City

"Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to meet with Vatican City’s Pope Francis on Saturday, according to Italian media, to open a Palestinian embassy in the theocratic micro-state -- the first Palestinian embassy to be established in a European Union member nation.

During the meeting they also plan to discuss several key issues regarding the Palestinians.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki confirmed that Abbas will primarily be raising issue with incoming President-elect Donald Trump, who is set to take office next week, and his proposed plan to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Abbas has urged that the decision would be dangerous and derail the peace-making process in the region.

Palestinians fear the move would consolidate Israeli control over the ancient city, making it difficult to establish east Jerusalem as a capital for a future Palestinian state, and hindering the possibility of a two-state solution.

Maliki added that upon meeting with the Pope, the Palestinian Authority hopes the position the Vatican takes on the matter will be influential, sending out a strong message to the President-elect."

PRAYER ALERT January 10, 2017: 70 Nations are gathering against Israel on January 15th calling for Israel to give up East Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and its Western Wall as well as Judea and Samaria for a two-state solution and that list of nations includes the U.S. as Kerry to attend Mideast peace conference in Paris

"US Secretary of State John Kerry will attend a Middle East peace conference in Paris on Sunday, in a move likely to dismay an already angry Israel.

Neither Israel nor the Palestinian leadership will attend the talks, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is concerned the meeting could lead to another UN resolution."

"Ties with the outgoing US administration have fallen to a new low, but Israel is looking for a more sympathetic hearing from Donald Trump after he takes power on January 20.

That leaves Kerry with just over a week if he wants to have a lasting effect on the moribund peace process, and the French conference is one venue for that.

Around 70 countries will gather for the conference and they are expected to throw their weight behind calls for a halt to settlement building and a negotiated peace.

France has been planning to hold a conference for months, but Washington had refused until Tuesday to confirm that its top diplomat would attend.

Diplomats have played down rumors the foreign envoys could draft a new UN resolution to codify plans for two states in international law."

The nations coming against Israel is evil in the end. Psalm 91 is in prayer order.

January 7, 2017: The U.S. House of Representatives has voted condemning UN Resolution 2334 by a bipartisan vote of 342 to 80 calling for a repeal of the Security Council resolution.

Secretary of State John Kerry, who seeks to be politically correct rather than walk in Biblical truth vehemently supported the resolution has now unleashed his own prediction: John Kerry warns some of Trump's foreign policy could be "explosive" and Roman King Herod... err I mean Hashemite King Abdullah II of Jordan says moving US Embassy to Jerusalem is 'red line'.

In case you did not know it, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan got its name in 1949, two years after UN Resolution 181 called for the partition of Arab and Jewish states on November 29, 1947 when the UN General Assembly resolved that the area called by the phrase "West Bank" become part of a future Arab state, but this resolution was opposed and fully rejected by all Arab states. Prior to 1967, Judea and Samaria, aka the West Bank, was Jordanian land, NOT Palestinian.

This rejection land was demarcated in its modern form after the Ottoman Empire was dissolved in 1917 under the British Mandate. In 1949, the Armistice Agreements defined the boundary between Israel and Jordan, then in 1950, Jordan, formerly called Transjordan annexed the land area along the armistice line west of the Jordan River, calling it the "West Bank" and it remained so until 1967. Twenty-one years later, Jordan officially relinquished all of its claim to the rugged mountains in 1988, when it severed boundaries and stripped West Bank area residents of citizenship. The twice rejected people living there in the Judea and Samaria districts of Menashe, HaBik'a, Shomron, Efrayim, Binyamin, Maccabim, Etzion and Yehuda are not Palestinian. Wake up, there is no nationality by that name.

It's time to see who that land belongs to:
"Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.”" Genesis 12:6-7
The division of land is no solution. In fact, the so-called Palestinians are already divided. The Arabs living in the West Bank and the Egyptians living in the Gaza Strip are not related by heritage or government. In 2007, all so-called unity was split in the divide between Fatah and Hamas with the West Bank under Fatah's Palestinian Authority and the Gaza Strip ruled by Hamas.

By all this we need to pray for Kerry and Abdullah, they need to see the truth and they need to see Yeshua for who He is, the King and He is returning to Israel to lead the world by His Torah constitution from Jerusalem.

While the U.S. sends an armored brigade to Poland to deter Russia, John Kerry predicts an explosion of Trump's foreign policy as the nations rage against Israel saying that dividing Israel is the only means to peace in the Middle East just as ISIS suicide bombers ravaged Baghdad killing at least 30 innocent people and injuring another 25 on January 2nd in their ongoing "martyrdom operation".

Not only does Kerry and the UN ignore Syria, they ignore the civil war in Yemen. But Pakistan does not. They just named General Raheel Sharif to command the Saudi-led 39-member Islamic Military Alliance:

"Now that it has been confirmed that General Sharif will be working for Riyadh, many analysts say the move is likely to create more friction in already tense Iranian-Pakistani ties."

Horrifically, The Times of Israel has just reported: 2016 was the deadliest year ever for suicide bombings

"The year 2016 was the deadliest in the history of suicide terrorism, an Israeli think tank said, with 469 suicide bombings carried out by 800 perpetrators in 28 countries, causing the deaths of about 5,650 people.

Islamic State was the leading perpetrator of suicide bombings worldwide, being directly or indirectly responsible for approximately 70 percent (322) of the attacks, according to statistics compiled by the Terrorism and Low Intensity Conflict Research Program at Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).

As the terror group loses territory, “it appears that suicide terrorism will be a key tool for the Islamic State in consolidating its image as invincible, creating deterrence against its enemies, and taking revenge for the international activity against it,” the think tank said Thursday.

“The Islamic State’s partners and other terrorist groups will also likely redouble their efforts to carry out mass casualty large-scale terrorist attacks.”"

Wake Up... Stop the fiction, seek the truth!

Dividing Israel with the Palestinians has nothing to do with peace in the Middle East. Giving up the Golan has everything to do with chaos and terror as it would open the the door to the pit of hell called ISIS which is breeding across the fence in Syria. Hamas and ISIS have the same agenda, death to Jews and to Christians.

December 29, 2016: As Iraq's Army and Kurdish fighters push today toward Mosul to fight ISIS, the craftsmen of Iran have ignored the fight for freedom and instead contributed to Syria's humanitarian crisis supporting Assad despite the fact that the Alawites do not follow Iran's Shiite theology. Now Iran has joined in the UN sham chorus against Israel, but this is different as Iran's military is threatening her destruction with words straight from the pit of Hitler's grave: Settlement Activities to Bring About Israel’s End: IRGC Spokesman

"TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) spokesman reminded the Tel Aviv regime of a certain defeat it will have to suffer in a war that may break out as a result of pressing ahead with illegal settlement construction in Palestine, saying it will result in Israel’s annihilation.

Speaking at a meeting in Iran’s northwestern city of Oroumiyeh on Thursday, Head of the IRGC Public Relations Department General Ramezan Sharif said Israel’s decision to continue settlement projects on occupied Palestinian territories will “definitely provoke a reaction”, noting that a possible subsequent war will certainly end in the Zionist regime’s defeat and complete destruction."

These are dark days for Israel. "Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!" Psalm 122

December 23, 2016: Today, ISIS called for attacks against a list of churches in America by aspiring assailants of “the sons of Islam” after a Christmas market attack in Berlin.

And ignoring the fact that the UN says the situation in Syria ‘remains catastrophic’ where over 400,000 people have been killed and millions displaced since the so-called Arab Spring enraged from Egypt, Tunisia, Iraq and then Syria as Israel’s Sunni, Shiites and Salafists neighbors are infighting with no focus on Arab identity. These Arab societies turned to cursing each other as three Arab regimes fell while Yemen and Syria plunged into civil war and chaos amid terror and destruction. All the while, America is pulling back from the divide as Russia moves in to close the gap.

Despite eastern Aleppo's evacuations, the nations do not give appropriate focus on Syria nor listen to the prophet Joel (chapter 3) or Zechariah (chapter 12) as they cast lots today when Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela replaced Egypt sponsoring Resolution 2334 as Egypt’s Ambassador Amr Abdellatif Aboulatta voted in favor of a Security Council resolution that is so pathetic that it even makes the Temple Mount and its Western Wall below the threshing floor that David purchased 'occupied territory'. Insiders like Israel's Deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely said this was coming.

I know you are awake or you would not be reading this, but I pray you are 'wide' awake!

In the past ten years the United Nations' has passed over 220 resolutions against the Jewish state. Now, Resolution 2334 from the UN has promised a Palestinian claim for Judea & Samaria, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount. It reverses the UN Security Council vote of December 31, 2014.

So, it seems the 70 nation summit meeting in France on January 15th might lead to a UN Security Council resolution to formally divide Israel into a Palestinian state. A major wake up call about this curse came from The State Department on October 5, 2016.

'Houston, we have a problem'. Barack Hussein Obama has brought the UN against Israel and he will bring a curse on America, if not himself as he closes the door as the worst President in U.S. history as a closet enemy of the Jewish people.

It is a dark day for America and the UN too as the Security Council has stubbornly pushed the Oslo Accord's birth pain policies for Israel's division that began in 1993, but despite the deceit in the recesses of the UN members, the light of the world will be seen from this 'evening' darkness. Only Elohim Almighty YHVH can accomplish that and He will.

The word evening in the Bible is עֶרֶב `ereb and Jeremiah 25:24 is oddly translated by many as pointing toward the Arab people. We must consider this.

Today, is also Kislev 23. As far as I can tell, this month is named just two times in Scripture. First in Nehemiah 1:1-4 then again in Zechariah 7:1. Nehemiah's words appear to prophetically point to our time today...
"The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah: In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem.

They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace...

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven."
The accountability of the great trouble and disgrace of this resolution of rape falls squarely on the shoulders of the 15 voting members of the UN Security Council. Just as Israel prepares for Hannukkah, the nations have come against her once again. The culprits are not Greeks as they were in the days of the Maccabees, today they are:

China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and ten non-permanent members Angola, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal, Spain, Ukraine, Uruguay and Venezuela.

For the Security Council, it seems better to coexist with lies rather than be accountable to truth as the nations kick at Israel like a wild donkey braying threats against the covenant of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob just as the Greeks, then the Roman Legions did years ago.

I was surprised to see the United Kingdom vote in favor of the resolution with Theresa May, the new Conservative Party leader of the UK and supporter of Israel at the helm. Strangely, just months ago Palestinian Arabs threatened to sue the UK for issuing Balfour Declaration some 100 years ago. So much for the concept of a statute of limitations.

The names have changed but the storyline is the same. Alexander the Great conquered the territory of Judea, was succeeded by Antiochus IV Epiphanes who after engaging Egypt, took Jerusalem and desecrated the Temple Mount. That''s the UN plan in real time.

Barack Hussein Obama's last stand was to not to stand at all, a betrayal of a friend by abstaining and not vetoing the U.N. resolution regarding 'so-called' Israeli settlements, but I'm afraid he is not finished with his attempt to divide. Why?

Back on May 19, 2011, in a major speech at the State Department, President Obama laid out his vision for a new chapter in American diplomacy across the Middle East and North Africa. The speech announced a commitment to "di-vide" Israel back to pre-1967 lines. Obama's chaos of "change" is dark and it has grown globally since his New Beginning speech in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th 2009.

U.S. Abstains as U.N. Security Council Votes to Condemn Israeli Settlements

"UNITED NATIONS — Defying extraordinary pressure from President-elect Donald J. Trump and furious lobbying by Israel, the Obama administration on Friday allowed the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction.

The administration’s decision not to veto the measure reflected its growing frustration over Israeli settlements, and broke a longstanding American policy of serving as Israel’s sturdiest diplomatic shield at the United Nations.

While the measure is not expected to have any practical impact on the ground, it is regarded as a major rebuff to Israel, one that could increase its isolation over the paralyzed peace process with Israel’s Palestinian neighbors, who have sought to establish their own state on territory held by Israel.

Applause broke out in the 15-member Security Council’s chambers following the vote on the measure, which passed 14-0, with the United States abstaining. Israel’s ambassador, Danny Danon, denounced the measure and castigated the council members who had approved it.

“Would you ban the French from building in Paris?” he told them.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, who had scrambled in recent days to stop the measure from coming to a vote, released a blistering denunciation afterward:

“Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. and will not abide by its terms,” Mr. Netanyahu said in a statement. “At a time when the Security Council does nothing to stop the slaughter of half a million people in Syria, it disgracefully gangs up on the one true democracy in the Middle East, Israel, and calls the Western Wall ‘occupied territory.’”

The vote came a day after Mr. Trump personally intervened to keep the measure, proposed by Egypt, from coming up for a vote on Thursday, as scheduled. Mr. Trump’s aides said he had spoken to Mr. Netanyahu. Both men also spoke to the Egyptian president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Egypt postponed the vote.

But, in a show of mounting exasperation, four other countries on the Security Council — Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela — all of them relatively powerless temporary members with rotating two-year seats, snatched the resolution away from Egypt and put it up for a vote Friday afternoon."

The birth pains of the full covenant of the land continues, because this promise is unfulfilled:
“I will establish your borders from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, and from the desert to the Euphrates River. I will give into your hands the people who live in the land, and you will drive them out before you." Exodus 23:31
HalleluYah, most like to think Israel was born in a day on May 14, 1948, but a greater day is coming. God will keep His promise. There is another witness:
In that day from the river Euphrates to the brook of Egypt YHWH will thresh out the grain, and you will be gleaned one by one, O people of Israel. And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship YHWH on the holy mountain at Jerusalem. Isaiah 27:12-13
In a way, I wonder is God using the tribulation we've all seen in Syria and Northern Iraq as a means of His mercy?

He always uses man's labor for His good turning evil upside down for His glory. He used tribulation in Egypt to save Israel and bring them out of slavery. He used the horrors of the Inquisition, the pogroms and ultimately the holocaust to re-establish the land for the restoration of all Israel as a part of God's plan with the earth with Jerusalem in the epicenter.

The globe is now full of refugees from Syria and Iraq as refugees flood into Europe from across The Middle East. God's ways are greater than our understanding. By His unfathomable mercy, is He saving people from a World War III bowl of fury to come as terror erupts in the Middle East as foretold by the prophets and seen by John?
"The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs.." Revelation 16:12-14
Following this battle, whenever it occurs, the greatest earthquake since creation will unfold and great hailstones will crush the Middle East (see Revelation 16:17-21).

So, you must read UN Security Council Resolution 2334 for yourself.

This is critically important in the unfolding of prophecy of labor pains described in Isaiah 13:8; Isaiah 21:3; Isaiah 42:14; Jeremiah 4:31; Jeremiah 6:24; Jeremiah 30:6; Jeremiah 50:43; Micah 4:9; Matthew 24:8; Mark 13:8, 1 Thessalonians 5:3; Revelation 12:1-2.

Take note as you read Resolution 2334, the 'The Quartet" roadmap is noted five times in this ridiculous escapade that calls Israel an "occupying power" and under a charade of lies declares the resolution falls under the decrees of the Geneva Conventions that establish international law for civilians in and around a war-zone.

The Geneva Conventions are about people at war for crying out loud, for that reason and many others, Resolution 2334 is a decree of abomination standing against not only Israel, but this planet, yet God will use it to carry out His promises because God brought the Jewish people back to Israel to accomplish His purposes as declared in Jeremiah 16:14-15.

Almighty God used Egypt long ago to show His glory to the world and He mysteriously used Egypt again this week as He prepares to fulfill the words He gave also to Zechariah in Kislev:
"And the word of the LORD of hosts came, saying, “Thus says the LORD of hosts: I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great wrath."" Zechariah 8:1-2
God continued on with his promise concerning Israel as He expounded on His promise to come:
"The oracle of the word of the LORD concerning Israel: Thus declares the LORD, who stretched out the heavens and founded the earth and formed the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it." Zechariah 12:1-3

““And the LORD will give salvation to the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem may not surpass that of Judah. On that day the LORD will protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them on that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the angel of the LORD, going before them. And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. On that day the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo." Zechariah 12:7-11
I've have been shouting to the "nations" here about the season of destruction linked to the Quartet Roadmap from the vision and promises given to Zechariah in postings for seven years now.

This is your wake up call for Paul's prophetic warning of the tribulation birth pain tied to "peace and security" before the day of The Lord:
"While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
Resolution 2334... "Calls upon all parties to continue, in the interest of the promotion of peace and security, to exert collective efforts to launch credible negotiations on all final status issues in the Middle East peace process and within the time frame specified by the Quartet in its statement of 21 September 2010."

Next to be poured into the cup of trembling is the French conference which has been rescheduled for January 15, 2016 when the Middle East Quartet (the US, UN, Russia and the EU) will again restate their goal to divide Israel.

Resolution 2334 provides an amazing parallel when we consider the Torah portion this week Vayeishev, “He Dwelt” in Genesis 37:1 to 40:23. When Joseph arrived in Shechem, a man asked if he could help him out. Joseph said, “I’m looking for my brothers. Can you tell me where they are grazing their flocks?”

Joseph was looking for his brothers in Judea and Samaria, today’s West Bank.

Today, Shechem is called Nablus, it’s in the valley below Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal where Israel pronounced the blessings and the curses, its where Abraham arrived at the great tree of Moreh, it's the area Jacob purchased for 100 pieces of silver and the same place Judah's daughter Dinah was raped, it is the home of Joseph’s tomb and Jacob’s well, not a Palestinian State.

This week, the territory has shown itself again in the UN’s resolution saying Israel has no right there.
Horrifically, Joseph faced death as he continued beyond to search for his brothers, but by God’s providence he was delivered and eventually he not only saved them, he forgave them.

What have the nations learned from all this?

Apparently, not much.

Yet, the Book of Joshua makes a prophetic observation and the blessing will not fail:
And all Israel, sojourner as well as native born, with their elders and officers and their judges, stood on opposite sides of the ark before the Levitical priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD, half of them in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, just as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded at the first, to bless the people of Israel. Joshua 8:33
Opinions are a dime a dozen, but I think we might consider the UN vote on the 23rd of December (also Kislev 23) may be a potential time marker, pointing to a coming birth pain if you will as the UN vote was exactly 9 months before September 23, 2017, a Shabbat Shuvah, the time of a special haftarah including Hosea 14:2-10, Joel 2:15-27, Hosea 14:2-10 and Micah 7:18-20...
"And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth." Revelation 12:1-2
When we read of John's vision, it is important to take notice of what Micah says comes after the birth pains:
"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from old,
From everlasting.

Therefore He shall give them up,
Until the time that she who is in labor has given birth;
Then the remnant of His brethren
shall return to the children of Israel." Micah 5:2-3
This jumps off the page: "Then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel."

Are you ready for the journey?

December 22, 2016: Today, the UN plan was delayed today by Egypt…

Was this delay a Cyrus effect from a mere tweet, or was it a matter of prophetic timing??

Although Cyrus did not conquer Egypt, by 535BC all the lands up to the Egyptian borders had acceded to Persian dominance and the king's decrees.

From the Washington Examiner: Egypt scuttles UN vote on Israeli settlement after Trump warning

“Egyptian officials scrapped a plan to proceed with a United Nations Security Council vote condemning the construction of Israeli settlements, following pushback from Israeli officials and President-elect Trump.

"Egypt requested the vote's delay to permit them to conduct an additional meeting of the Arab League's foreign ministers to work on the resolution's wording," Haaretz reported, citing Western diplomats. But the vote might be postponed "indefinitely," according to the report.”

Trump? Well, we all know he likes to talk about money, it's just a wild guess... perhaps Egypt's President Sisi knew Trump could quickly come up with $1.5 billion reasons he should not pursue the Egyptian sponsored UN vote.

December 21, 2016: U.N. Security Council to vote Thursday on Israeli settlements

"UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council is due to vote on Thursday on a draft resolution that would demand that Israel "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem."

Egypt circulated the draft on Wednesday evening and the 15-member council is due to vote at 3 p.m. (2000 GMT) on Thursday, diplomats said. It was unclear how the United States, which has traditionally protected Israel from U.N. action, would vote.

U.S. officials said this month that President Barack Obama was not expected to make major moves on Israeli-Palestinian peace before leaving office. In 2011, the United States vetoed a draft resolution condemning Israeli settlements after the Palestinians refused a compromise offer from Washington.

The draft text to be voted on Thursday says the establishment of settlements by Israel has "no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace."

The Palestinians want an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, areas Israel captured in a 1967 war. Most countries and the United Nations view Israeli West Bank settlements as illegal and an obstacle to peace.

The draft U.N. resolution "stresses that the cessation of all Israeli settlement activities is essential for salvaging the two-State solution."

The "Quartet" sponsoring the stalled Middle East peace process - the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations - said in July that Israel should stop building settlements."

November 30, 2016: Just in case you missed this, this is your WAKE UP CALL. There were 6, yes six United Nations resolutions today against Jerusalem and the Golan as the UN called on Israel to transfer control of the Golan Heights to Syria.

Are you kidding me?

Syria is in a state of Civil War, Aleppo is dying.

As 250,000 including 100,000 children face possible death in east Aleppo, this past week, the United Nations voted and called on Israel to transfer control of the Golan Heights to Syria.

The prince of the air is moving whether you see him or not, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. One of the 6 resolutions is to take the Old City away from Israel.

We all know, the world knows Syria is crumbling in a state of civil war, mass death and destruction not seen since World War II as Russian bombs destroy its cities.

The amazing city of Aleppo is dying in a type of holocaust right in front of us and one of the UN resolutions says... give the beautiful farmlands, magnificent vineyards and wineries of the Golan to wore torn, corrupt, dark and dying Syria.

That would be like telling us to give away the Napa Valley.

Evil is wide awake and it will affect your life one way or another because the UN world is led by deception that follows the enemy of The Lord God of Israel.

Check the Almighty's prophetic clock, these six strikes against Israel occurred exactly 70 Biblical years from November 29, 1947.

That was THE DAY the UN adopted its plan of partition, a resolution from the "UN Special Committee on Palestine." Isaiah 66:8 arrived on the world scene from and center six months later on May 14, 1948 on day 20 of the Omer count that year:
"Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her children."
Urging Concerted Action to Revive Peace Talks, General Assembly Adopts Six Resolutions on Question of Palestine, Situation in Middle East


"The General Assembly today adopted six resolutions on Palestinian and Middle East issues, ranging from Jerusalem to the United Nations special information programme on the question of Palestine.

The Assembly adopted a resolution on the peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine (document A/71/L.21) by a recorded vote of 153 in favour to 7 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 7 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Honduras, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, Vanuatu). By the terms of the resolution, the Assembly called for the intensification of efforts by the parties, including through negotiations, with the support of the international community, towards the conclusion of a final peace settlement.

The Assembly also adopted a resolution on Jerusalem (document A/71/L.22) by a recorded vote of 149 in favour to 7 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 8 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Vanuatu). By its terms, the Assembly reiterated its determination that any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem were illegal and therefore null and void and had no validity whatsoever, and called upon Israel to immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures. The Assembly also stressed that a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem should take into account the legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.

By the terms of a resolution on the Syrian Golan (document A/71/L.8), the Assembly demanded that Israel withdraw from all the occupied territory to the line of 4 June 1967 and called on all parties concerned to exert the necessary efforts to ensure the resumption of the peace process. That resolution received 103 in favour to 6 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Palau, United States), with 56 abstentions."

Also today, the Jerusalem Post reported in a potential response to Jimmy Carter: US lawmakers call on Obama to refrain from action on Israel at UN

"WASHINGTON – Congressmen from both parties are issuing support for direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians and urging the Obama administration to refrain from taking action at the United Nations over the decades-old conflict.

A “sense of” resolution adopted by the House of Representatives on Tuesday night put a majority of members on record in favor of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that lead “to a sustainable two-state solution,” and against efforts at the UN Security Council that would “impose a solution” on the parties.

The resolution, which is a nonbinding act that allows the chamber to express its majority opinion, was introduced by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-California) and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-New York).

It comes at a time when US President Barack Obama is weighing whether to join a French effort at the council that would outline parameters for an ultimate peace agreement. Israel opposes such a tactic as destructive to the pursuit of peace."

Sixty-nine years ago on November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly in New York adopted Resolution 181, the Partition Plan for Palestine which terminated the "British Mandate" for Palestine and recommended the establishment of an Arab state and a Jewish state, while making Jerusalem an international city and not the city of prayer of the Promised Land. The thing is the Arab state never happened, because the Arabs rejected the idea, so the truth is there is no Palestinian state except chaos.

The words of the Almighty found in Joel 3 will affect our lives one way or another, sooner or later, so we must pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Wake Up Call September 24, 2016: Unbelievable. From The Times of Israel: Syria says Israeli ‘terrorism’ threatens entire region

"Speaking before the United Nations General Assembly, Muallem said the Syrian state was dealing not only with “mercenary terrorists on its territory” in its five-year civil war, but also “has long confronted a different kind of terrorism; the terrorism of Israel that has occupied a precious part of our land in the Syrian Golan since 4 June 1967.”"

"Muallem also claimed the US-led coalition airstrike on Syrian soldiers a week ago was intentional, rejecting US claims that it was a mistake."

The UN report further states:

"Mr. Al-Moualem went on to say that the terrorist campaign against my country is taking place in full view of a polarized world, with those who have chosen to support international law and the principles of the UN Charter, at odds with those who have decided to turn a blind eye to the truth and to support, finance and arm terrorists, under false pretexts that depart from logic and reason. “Some consider people who take up arms against the state and its citizens ‘legitimate opposition,’ as long as they are in Syria, while the exact same people, on any other day and in another country, would be considered terrorists, or at least outlaws,” he declared."

Wake Up Call September 22, 2016: While some nations seek to divide Israel, Sh'ia Iran seeks to destroy as they continue to align with Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Bahrain and the Palestinians.

As Rouhani Prepares to Address UN, Iran’s Military Threatens to Turn Israeli Cities to ‘Dust’

"( – On the eve of Iranian President Hasan Rouhani’s address to the United Nations, military parades back home Wednesday featured ballistic missiles on a truck draped with a banner threatening to turn a fellow U.N. member state’s cities to “dust.”

“If the leaders of the Zionist regime make a mistake then the Islamic Republic will turn Tel Aviv and Haifa to dust,” read the banner, according to Reuters. Iranian media outlets including state-run Al-Alam TV and Tehran Times published multiple images of the Zolfaqar missiles and the banner."

"The Fars news agency, affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), quoted IRGC aerospace force commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh as saying the Zolfaqar was capable of hitting targets up to 466 miles (750 kms) “with a zero margin of error.” Tel Aviv lies roughly 650 miles from the nearest Iranian territory.

Another ballistic missile on display in Wednesday’s parades, however, the liquid-fueled Qadr, boasts a range of up to 1,240 miles (2,000 kms), potentially threatening Israel, Saudi Arabia, U.S. forces in the Gulf, and south-eastern Europe.

Also on display was the Russian-supplied S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system, which Iran recently deployed at a key underground nuclear facility.

The parades – near the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran, and in other locations – were held to mark the beginning of “Sacred Defense Week,” commemorating the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.

Iran has used military displays before to send propaganda messages to its people and its foes. Last March it test-fired a Qadr missile, engraved with the words, in Hebrew, “Israel should be wiped from the earth.”"
Yet today, nations applauded at the UN

At the podium, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke of peace as he invited Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to speak at the Knesset and he offered to speak at the PA headquarters in Ramallah.

Wake Up Call September 21, 2016: We are in a Jubilee Year and the 71st UN General Session has begun. This week Egypt's President took to the podium some 70 Jubilees later.

Funny thing, it was about 3,500 years ago when Egypt's leader spoke against Israel. What goes around does come around. The end was declared from the beginning indeed.

President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi of Egypt addressed the general debate. The UN report states:

"He called for an end to Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands through negotiations to reach a final settlement and sustainable and just peace on the basis of the two-state solution.

“Egypt affirms that the hand of peace remains extended in the form of the Arab Peace Initiative, and stresses the necessity of working to take constructive steps to end Israeli settlement-building and initiate negotiations for the ultimate resolution, while simultaneously halting all acts that bring harm to the Arab heritage in Jerusalem,” he added."

The Jerusalem Post offers a report on Sisi's comments.

King Abdullah II Bin Al Hussein of Jordan addresses the general debate of the General Assembly. The UN report states:

"The king also called for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “No injustice has spread more bitter fruit than the denial of a Palestinian state. I say: Peace is a conscious decision. Israel has to embrace peace or eventually be engulfed in a sea of hatred in a region of turmoil.”"

The Times of Israel offers a report on Abdullah's comments. The Times report zeros in on what Zechariah describes as a cup of reeling and a burdensome stone, of the nations gathered together against it:

"Mentioning only the Christian and Muslim connection to Jerusalem holy sites, Abdullah accused Israel of attempting to alter the identity of the city.

“As the Custodian of Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem, I will continue my efforts to protect these places, and stand up against all violations of their sanctity, including attempts for temporal and spatial division of Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif,” he said."

The UN report on the comments of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's address to the UN General Assembly did not comment on his words about Israel, but the Times of Israel does... Erdogan at UN: World must push for ‘independent Palestine’

"“There is a need to allow for the Palestinian people to establish an independent Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on the two-state solution,” he told the UN General Assembly in New York. “It is an obligation of the international community toward the Palestinian children, if nothing else.”

Mentioning Israel as part of a broader speech on Turkey’s role in the global community, Erdogan said that the recent reconciliation deal signed between Ankara and Jerusalem would allow his country to play a greater role as a facilitator in the peace process.

“We will try to use the normalization of relations to assist the peace process and solve the economic and humanitarian challenges that our Palestinian brothers and sisters face,” he said."

President Obama, with teleprompter intact stated Israel cannot permanently occupy Palestinian land. The UN report states:

"In Syria, he said, there is no ultimate military victory to be won, and the hard work of diplomacy must stop the violence, and deliver aid to those in need. “And surely, Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land,” he added."

The Jerusalem Post offers a report on Obama's comments.

Wake Up Call September 13, 2016: It is a very good thing to support Israel. I could be way off base here, but I am somehow concerned U.S. financial support could be used for division. A bargaining chip if you will for President Obama who, like other world leaders seeks to divide the land for peace. The New York Times reports on the deal...

U.S. Finalizes Deal to Give Israel $38 Billion in Military Aid

"JERUSALEM — The United States has finalized a $38 billion package of military aid for Israel over the next 10 years, the largest of its kind ever, and the two allies plan to sign the agreement on Wednesday, American and Israeli officials said.

The State Department scheduled a ceremony to formally announce the pact, which will be signed by Jacob Nagel, the acting national security adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, and Thomas A. Shannon Jr., the under secretary of state for political affairs. Susan E. Rice, President Obama’s national security adviser who handled negotiations, plans to be on hand.

The package represents a major commitment to Israel’s security in the waning months of Mr. Obama’s presidency after years of fractious relations with Mr. Netanyahu over issues like the Iran nuclear agreement. Mr. Netanyahu agreed to several concessions to cement the deal rather than gamble on winning better terms from the next president.

The package will provide an average of $3.8 billion a year over the next decade to Israel, already the largest recipient of American aid, including financing for missile defense systems that defend against rockets fired by groups like Hezbollah and Hamas."

Wake Up Call July 11, 2016: It's official. The Pharaoh is moving back in the picture. Egypt's foreign minister personally delivers the communiqué from Paris that Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi is the man with the plan behind the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and the two-state solution is on the way from Cairo. This brief is from The Jerusalem Post:

Egyptian foreign minister visits Jerusalem to push Cairo-backed diplomatic process
"The Egyptian foreign minister said his visit was a continuation of Egypt’s long-standing sense of responsibility toward peace for itself, and for all the peoples of the region, “particularly the Palestinians and Israelis who have suffered for generations due to the conflict between them.”

Shoukry said his visit comes, as did his visit last month to Ramallah, within the context of Sisi’s call in May for a comprehensive agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

“Such a monumental achievement will have a far reaching and dramatic and positive impact on the overall situation in the Mideast region,” he said.

Shoukry said that the goal is to achieve a two-state solution through negotiations between the parties, one that will reach an agreement based on “justice, legitimate rights and a mutual willingness to coexist peacefully in two neighboring independent states in peace and security.”

Since the breakdown of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in April 2014, he said, the situation has been constantly deteriorating on all levels: humanitarian, economic and security.

“The plight of the Palestinian people becomes more arduous every day, and the dream of peace and security moves further out of the Israeli people’s reach as long as the conflict continues.

It is no longer acceptable to claim that the status quo is the most we can achieve of the hopes and aspirations of the Palestinian and Israeli peoples,” he stated, adding that the current situation in the region is neither “stable nor sustainable.”

Netanyahu greeted his guest by saying that the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty signed 37 years ago, followed by the Jordanian-Israeli accord in 1994, have been the cornerstones of stability in the region and “are critical assets for our countries.”

He once again called on the Palestinians to enter direct negotiations, saying that they should follow the “courageous example of Egypt and Jordan.

This is the only way we can address all the outstanding problems between us, and turn the vision of peace based on two states for two peoples into a reality.”"
Shoukry's visit comes 6 weeks after the form Grand Mufti of Egypt visited The Vatican and Pope Frances.

Grand Imam: Religions must work together for peace
"(Vatican Radio) The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Sheik Ahmed Muhammad Al-Tayyib, said the time has come for “the representatives of the Divine Religions” to “strongly and in a concrete way” turn humanity towards mercy and peace, "so that humanity can avoid the great crisis we are suffering now.”

The Grand Imam ended the interview by making an appeal to the whole world to “unite and close ranks to confront and put an end to terrorism.”

“This is my appeal to the world and to the free men of the world: to come to an agreement immediately and to intervene to put an end to these rivers of blood,” he said.

"Yes, terrorism exists, but Islam has nothing to do with this terrorism, and this applies to Ulama Muslims and to Christians and Muslims in the East," – the Grand Imam continued – "And those who kill Muslims, and who also kill Christians, have misunderstood the texts of Islam either intentionally or by negligence.""
Wake Up Call July 1, 2016 This is big. Today, The Quartet (the UN, the United States, the Russian Federation and the European Union) continue to seek to re-write the Biblical promise given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as they released their report through the U.N. today.
"The Quartet reiterates that a negotiated two-state outcome is the only way to achieve an enduring peace that meets Israeli security needs and Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty, ends the occupation that began in 1967, and resolves all permanent status issues."
Wake Up Call June 5, 2016: You may remember this. It was his very first interview as President of The United States and newly elected Barack Hussein Obama was interviewed on Al-Arabiya, an Arabic TV station and the topic was the division of Israel and Jerusalem, a call to adopt the 2002 Arab peace initiative.

You may recall the surprise that his first interview was by on Al-Arabiya. I do, and I was shocked as I watched. Do you remember? He said that the Arab peace initiative was... important.
“Well, here’s what I think is important. Look at the proposal that was put forth by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia."

For the record, Mr. President, the land of Israel is a covenant land, it is not to be violated without grievous repercussion for those that seek to divide it. The covenant promise was given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Ancient prophecie intersected our modern day as things changed in 1967 as a result of the Six-Day War. June 6, 1967 marked the first time the Jewish people controlled Jerusalem since the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 AD. Now, just as Israel prepares to celebrate the 49th anniversary of Jerusalem Day recognizing the restoration of Israel's control of the ancient city, the Temple Mount and access to the Western Wall during the Six-Day War, the emboldened Saudis Call on Israel to Accept Arab ‘Peace’ Initiative Demanding Eastern Jerusalem, Golan, West Bank
"The international conference held in Paris on Friday seeking to revive the Israeli-Palestinian peace process has concluded with a call from Saudi Arabia to adopt the 2002 Arab peace initiative, which would lead to normalization of ties between Israel and Arab states."
Believe it or not, the international group of nations that congregated in Paris as it flooded met the Arab initiative's call for a "special committee" noted in items #6 and #7 of the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative released in Beirut 14 years ago by the Council of Arab States. That declaration has been reignited in the west by Moab, err I mean Saudi Arabia as it:
1. Requests Israel to reconsider its policies and declare that a just peace is its strategic option as well.

2. Further calls upon Israel to affirm:
I- Full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied since 1967, including the Syrian Golan Heights, to the June 4, 1967 lines as well as the remaining occupied Lebanese territories in the south of Lebanon.

II- Achievement of a just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem to be agreed upon in accordance with U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194.

III- The acceptance of the establishment of a sovereign independent Palestinian state on the Palestinian territories occupied since June 4, 1967 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
3. Consequently, the Arab countries affirm the following:
I- Consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended, and enter into a peace agreement with Israel, and provide security for all the states of the region.

II- Establish normal relations with Israel in the context of this comprehensive peace.
4. Assures the rejection of all forms of Palestinian patriation which conflict with the special circumstances of the Arab host countries.

5. Calls upon the government of Israel and all Israelis to accept this initiative in order to safeguard the prospects for peace and stop the further shedding of blood, enabling the Arab countries and Israel to live in peace and good neighbourliness and provide future generations with security, stability and prosperity.

6. Invites the international community and all countries and organisations to support this initiative.

7. Requests the chairman of the summit to form a special committee composed of some of its concerned member states and the secretary general of the League of Arab States to pursue the necessary contacts to gain support for this initiative at all levels, particularly from the United Nations, the Security Council, the United States of America, the Russian Federation, the Muslim states and the European Union.
Today, the headlines from Paris read as if The War Scroll found in Qumran Cave #1 has been engaged.

The scroll may not recognized as scripture, but its message is daunting if you are serious about the Bible. The small scroll discovered in 1947 just months before the U.N. announced Resolution 181 as the Partition Plan for Palestine. The scroll, like Revelation describes a war of the sons of light against the sons of darkness.

And get this, The War Scroll indicates that the sons of darkness are a mingling of the east and the west coming together at the end of days as the west (Kittim of Asshur) comes in alliance with the Biblical enemies of the nations of the east (Edom, Moab, Ammon, and Philistia) supporting a violation of the covenant.

From column 1 of The War Scroll:
"For the In[structor, the Rule of] the War. The first attack of the Sons of Light shall be undertaken against the forces of the Sons of Darkness, the army of Belial: the troops of Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the [Amalekitesl, Philistia, and the troops of the Kittim of Asshur. Supporting them are those who have violated the covenant."
The War Scroll is not just a story of war, after conflict there are great promises found in the parchment:
"Then there shall be a time of salvation for the People of God, and a time of dominion for all the men of His forces, and eternal annihilation for all the forces of Belial."

"Then [the Sons of Rig]hteousness shall shine to all ends of the world, continuing to shine forth until end of the appointed seasons of darkness. Then at the time appointed by God, His great excellence shall shine for all the times of e[ternity;] for peace and blessing, glory and joy, and long life for all Sons of Light."
The War Rule Scroll was also found at Qumran. It too has an amazing story:
Isaiah the prophet: [The thickets of the forest] will be cut down
with an axe and Lebanon by a majestic one will [f]all. And there shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse the Branch of David and they will enter into judgement with and the Prince of the Congregation, the Bran[ch of David] will kill him by strokes and by wounds. And a Priest [of renown (?)] will command the [s]lai[n] of the Kitti[m]
Jerusalem Day is a good day to read and study Psalm 122.

Wake Up Call June 3, 2016: Let's see if we can piece this together...

Today, the major powers of the world from the east and the west have gathered for the Mid East Paris Peace talks first announced April 22nd began. They were delayed past Memorial so that US Secretary of State John Kerry could participate but 'lo and behold' this is the headline news as a state of emergency has been declared by French President Hollande: Paris art museums to close as floodwaters swamp French capital
"PARIS – The rising waters of the Seine overflowed riverbanks, roads and rail tracks across Paris on Thursday, forcing authorities at the Louvre to do something they have not done in generations: hurriedly move precious artworks to higher ground.

Water levels at the famous river that winds through the French capital are expected to peak Friday sometime about noon. Paris police upgraded their flood warning Thursday to "orange" — the second-highest level — for areas near the Seine, which means they believe the floods could have "a significant impact" on buildings and people.

The Louvre Museum announced it will be closed Friday to remove artworks from rooms threatened by the rising waters, preventatively shifting them upstairs. Its most famous painting, Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa," is staying put on an upper floor."
Wake Up Call June 2, 2016: Israeli Ambassador to Moscow Zvi Heifetz stated that Israel is ready to sign peace treaties with all neighbors, including Palestine.
"MOSCOW(Sputnik) — Israel is ready to sign the peace treaty with its neighboring countries, including Palestine and Saudi Arabia, Israeli Ambassador to Moscow Zvi Heifetz said Wednesday.

"We signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan. We are ready to sign peace treaties with all our neighbors, including the closest [neighbor] to us — Palestine. We have no reasons to avoid signing the international treaty with Saudi Arabia and other states. We would be glad for that," Heifetz told the Rossiya-24 television channel."
Wake Up Call May 30, 2016: Raphael Ahren is the diplomatic correspondent at The Times of Israel, he wrote today from a press conference at the Knesset in Jerusalem of one of the major stories that could impact the state of Israel forever and intertwine 57 Muslim nations with the judgment of The Almighty El Shaddai.

Satan is a deceiver. He is not able to hide his work just camouflage it so that you don't notice his work in plain sight. So, Prime Minister here's a clue: 57 Muslim Nations (57 = 5+7 = 12). Twelve is the number of Israel but it's been hijacked.

Here are a couple of excerpts from Raphael Ahren's headline: PM partially embraces Arab peace plan, says it could ‘revive’ talks with Palestinians
"In a dramatic declaration, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday partially endorsed the Arab Peace Initiative, offering to negotiate with the Arab world the parameters of the plan, which promises Israel full diplomatic ties with 57 Arab and Muslim states after cementing a peace accord with the Palestinians.

“I take this opportunity to make clear that I remain committed to making peace with the Palestinians and with all our neighbors. The Arab Peace Initiative contains positive elements that could help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians,” Netanyahu declared in the Knesset."

"Proposed by Saudi Arabia and later adopted by the Arab League 14 years ago, the Arab Peace Initiative says that 57 Arab and Muslim states will establish “full diplomatic and normal relations” with Israel, in exchange for a “comprehensive peace agreement” with the Palestinians."
The book of Daniel tells us when he saw what would happen to Israel he was overcome and lay sick for days. That's how I feel now, absolutely sick because the word of God warns the world and suddenly Netanyahu and incoming Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman are not listening:
"For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land" Joel 3:1-2

"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision." Joel 3:14

"In that day will I make the chiefs of Judah like a big, blazing pot among [sticks of] wood and like a flaming torch among sheaves [of grain], and they shall devour all the peoples round about, on the right hand and on the left ..." Zechariah 12:6

Netanyahu and Liberman if you will not listen to God's word you need to remember Rabin and Sharon !

I pray for you. I pray you will open your eyes and ears to the word of God. Trust Him alone. If you succeed in an agreement to "divide the land" in a peace deal with the Arab Muslim world, the dividing will engage events you may have never considered.

I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, I pray for the Jewish people, I pray for the wisdom of Solomon for Netanyahu, don't cut the baby in half. The choice you have now is between the Tree of Life or the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

The choice is to obey the statutes and commandments found within the covenant of the land or not. In obedience there are blessings, in disobedience curses. The ultimate curse is exile. This is proven in all the Scriptures and it began in Eden.

Wake up Call May 23, 2016: Today is day 30 of the Omer Count, Benjamin Netanyahu met with French Prime Minister Manuel Valls in Jerusalem and announced that he will clear his schedule immediately to meet directly with Abbas in France.

Wake Up Call May 19, 2016: The date has been set it will be day 41 of the Omer Count to Shavuot when France to hold summit on Israel, Palestinians on June 3
"The summit, set to be held in Paris, will host officials from 20 countries, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, to discuss the peace process. Israel and the Palestinians have not been invited, but will be included at a later conference.

Israel has rejected the French initiative, saying direct negotiations are the only way to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians. The PA, however, has welcomed the plan."
While rejecting the validity of the French initiative due to the lack of direct negotiations, there may be more here than meets the eye as France leads the way by hosting the world in an attempt to divide the Promised and of Israel in the political propaganda of peace and security based on a plan of man, not the promise of God.

Strangely, France has had a longterm on again - off again relationship with the Jewish people. It goes all the way back to the Middle Ages. Around 1108, King Robert II started the cycle of persecution of the Jewish people. In 1182, the First Crusade led to King Philip Augustus' expulsion of the Jews around Passover 1182 and all synagogues were converted into churches. Again in 1306, The Great Exile was declared by Philip the IV on Tisha B'Av. Again in 1394, Charles VI issued an ordinance decreeing an irrevocable law and statute that no Jew should dwell in his domains. Expulsions followed over the years from France's lead in Spain, Portugal and England.

It's time to open the Bible, not divide the land: "And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God." Genesis 17:7-8

Wake Up Call May 16, 2016: Today is day 23 of the Omer Count up to Shavuot (Pentecost) and a 5.0 earthquake shook the Sinai right at the epicenter of the Red Sea crossing in the Gulf of Aqaba where there is a large beach and a natural land bridge right beneath the sea just west of Jabel al-Lawz (the real Mount Sinai). Then this happened:

Netanyahu rejects French peace talks offer
"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told France's foreign minister that Israel remains opposed to a French initiative for an international conference to try to revive peace talks.

Palestinians welcomed the proposal but Israel is concerned that the conference that France seeks to hold in the autumn would try to dictate terms for a peace deal."
I'm afraid that the earthquake is not about the rejection, it's likely about the peace treaty. Something is up, perhaps like the time Gabriel was fighting the Prince of Persia. It's more like the quaking Daniel wrote about that can occur at a key prophetic time. Do you feel it?

Wake Up Call April 27, 2016: Retired Saudi General Voices Support for Embassy in Tel Aviv
" – Anwar Eshki, a retired major general in the Saudi military, said on Monday that Saudi Arabia would establish an embassy in Tel Aviv in exchange for Israel adopting the Arab Peace Initiative.

“If he (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) announces that he accepts the initiative and gives all rights to Palestinians, Saudi Arabia will start to make an embassy in Tel Aviv,” Eshki said in an interview with Al Jazeera."
The 2002 Arab Peace Initiative calls for full Israeli withdrawal from all the Arab territories occupied since June 1967, in implementation of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, reaffirmed by the Madrid Conference of 1991.

Wake Up Call April 24, 2016: Passover is a prophetic time. Some 3,500 years ago things were really heating up in Egypt as the nations of Israel were called by God to return to the land promised to the descendants of Abraham.

Today, Passover is the time that God calls all people to remember the deliverance of Israel from physical slavery. Fifty days later, God met with them at Mt. Sinai where He offered to enter into Covenant with them as shown in Exodus 19.

Passover is also the time that God calls all people to remember the deliverance of Israel from spiritual slavery to sin and the pains of death. This was accomplished at the cross and in resurrection on the first day of the Omer count. Fifty days later, God's Spirit indwelled the disciples at Mt. Moriah as He empowered them. This is shown in Acts 2.

Today, the headlines are heating up on day one of the 50 day Omer count declared by God as recorded in Exodus 23:15-17.

As noted below on April 22nd, France plans to lead the way to strategize on a forced peace but Israel is not invited, that is a very conspicuous warning and today the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is reacting to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's headline: Israel will never leave Golan, Netanyahu tells Putin

Netanyahu must have delivered this message because for years, Syrian President Bashar Assad has said that once the Syrian civil war concludes, the Golan must be returned to Syria. Today the area is policed by nearly 800 troops in the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force UNDOF which was set up under UN resolution 350 (1974).

Another story comes from war torn Syria: Syrian official answers Netanyahu: We will use all available means to recapture the Golan
"In a first reaction to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's declaration that "Israel will never leave the Golan Heights," Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad said Sunday that Syria is prepared to use every possible means to recapture the area, including military means.

"The Syrian Golan is an occupied Arab land according to the UN Security Council's resolutions, and the presence of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Forces proves this," Miqad said in an interview with the Lebanon-based TV channel al-Mayadeen.

"We have never renounced the resistance and we are ready to recapture the Golan in all possible ways, including military ways. Israel wants to provoke us, but we will never surrender," Miqdad added."
The OIC's reaction to the Golan was made at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) website today. It's as if the OIC believe they can put the Golan out on the market to the highest bidder. As you read the press release do you notice the theme of the wise men and the sorcerers? Do you see the hardening of the heart?

This Passover season hardened attitude of Syria and the OIC toward the Holy Land reminds me of Pharaoh's mindset during the first Passover season.
"Then Pharaoh also summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the magicians of Egypt by their secret arts did the same thing. Each man threw down his staff, and the staffs became snakes. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs. Yet Pharaoh's heart became hard, and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had predicted. The LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is hard; he refuses to release the people." Exodus 7:11-14 NET
OIC to Hold an Emergency Meeting at the Level of Permanent Representatives to Discuss Israeli Escalation against Occupied Syrian Golan
"The Executive Committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will convene an Extraordinary Meeting at the level of Permanent Representatives on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at its headquarters in Jeddah, to discuss the Israeli escalation against the occupied Syrian Golan.

The Meeting is being held at the request of the State of Kuwait, which holds the rotating chair of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, to take a unified and strong position by the OIC Member States on the Israeli Government’s meeting that was held in the occupied Syrian Golan and the remarks by Israel’s Prime Minister that “the Golan Heights will forever remain under Israeli sovereignty”. The OIC considered these provoking acts by the Israeli Government a serious escalation and flagrant violation of the Resolutions of international legitimacy and International Law."
As noted the "Extraordinary Meeting" is to be held April 26th in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. For those not familiar with the location, Jeddah is "the" major port city on none other than the Red Sea. It has long been known for its money changers.

If you have read the Gospel of John, you may remember the problem of the money changers during the Passover season. They were turning the holy place into a marketplace:
"The Jewish Passover was near, so Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple complex He found people selling oxen, sheep, and doves, and He also found the money changers sitting there. After making a whip out of cords, He drove everyone out of the temple complex with their sheep and oxen. He also poured out the money changers’ coins and overturned the tables. He told those who were selling doves, “Get these things out of here! Stop turning My Father’s house into a marketplace!”" John 2:13-16
Wake Up Call April 22, 2016: Today, Passover begins at sunset and The Times of Israel reports on a potentially big story that may come into play during the Omer count up to Shavuot (Pentecost)...

France announces global summit on Israel-Palestinian peace process
"France will host a meeting of ministers from 20 countries on May 30 to try and relaunch the Israel-Palestinian peace process, Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault announced on Thursday. He told the international press, however, that Israel and the Palestinian officials would not be invited to the meeting, which will take place in Paris.

Ayrault said the aim was to prepare an international summit in the second half of 2016, which would include the Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

"Ayrault said the aim was to prepare an international summit in the second half of 2016, which would include the Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

“We cannot do nothing,” Ayrault said. “We have to act before it’s too late.” He added: “I am not naive, I am perfectly sincere… There is no alternative — the other option is fatalism and I reject that.”

He said the discussions would be based on the 2002 Saudi peace initiative — approved by the Arab League but not Israel — which called on the Jewish state to withdraw from Palestinian territory captured in the 1967 Six Day War, including East Jerusalem, in exchange for a normalization of ties with Arab countries. It also outlined the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza and envisaged a “just solution” of the refugee issue."
As you read that headline you may be thinking, well finally someone is doing something about peace. But perhaps you should ask, why the hardened heart? After all, God promised the land to Abraham and all of his descendants.

My question: Is the Covenant Maker up to something during this appointed season of the Jubilee?

The French have had their hand in the Middle East since Napoleon Bonaparte’s invasion of Egypt in 1798 which separated Egypt from the Ottoman Empire. From there the French moved north to Tunisia, Morocco, Syria and Lebanon.

Some Biblical historians even say that the French people may have descended from Reuben. They identify the Reubenites with the Franks who settled in France. If so, could Reuben's life have an impact of today's events?

The storyline is eerie to say the least.

The descendants of Reuben, also acted in some problematic ways. For example, in Numbers 32 they declined to settle within the Promised Land. Their leaders told Moses: "we will keep our hereditary possession across the Jordan". Moses accused them of a lack of confidence in God's promises for the land.

Isn't this the headline today?

France's leadership has no confidence in the promise of the land given to Abraham's descendants. They ignore the boundaries promised by God Almighty by the title deed of the 'Promised Land' which is the Bible.

Jacob gave a prophetic picture of the future of Reuben's clans.

In his last words, Jacob accuses Reuben of being unstable as water, meaning that he has no respect for boundaries or borders.

Jacob tells his son:
"Reuben, you are my firstborn, my strength and the first fruits of my virility, excelling in prominence, excelling in power.

Turbulent as water, you will no longer excel..." Genesis 49:3-4
In the wilderness journey, two men of the tribe of Rueben, Dathan and Abiram sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth, sons of Reuben joined forces with Korach.

These two men attempted a power play against Moses and Aaron. The result was bad, very bad. God caused the earth to swallow them alive.

Reuben's descendants are as confused as their ancestors. Heed the warning from Jacob, be very careful France, François Hollande your leader and Mahmoud Abbas are plotting the same evil path.

Wake Up Call April 15, 2016: UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. It is unwittingly leading the way to destruction, not peace.
Something happened on Trumpet's Day six years ago at UNESCO...

"On the 29th of September 2011 the Executive Board of UNESCO voted on a recommendation to admit Palestine to the Organization. From the 58 member-states on the Board, the recommendation was passed by a vote of 40 in favor to four against, with 14 abstentions. Palestine's request for membership was later considered at the General Conference (October 26-November 10) where it obtained the majority vote required for membership to be granted.

Decisions for admission are taken by the General Conference and the Executive Board which are UNESCO's governing bodies."
The United States opposed the resolution.

Today, a new UNESCO resolution was presented by seven nations: Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan. It refers to the Temple Mount as the Al-Aqsa Mosque or Al-Haram Al Sharif, and the resolution calls Israel “the occupying power” and the Western Wall the "Al-Buraq Plaza."
For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:7-8

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:9
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Wake Up Call March 8, 2016: Today a vicious, random terrorist attack by another Palestinian against civilians occurred in Israel resulted in the death of Taylor Force a visiting graduate student from Vanderbilt University. At least ten other people were wounded but survived the attack. The Vanderbilt University News provided a statement today from University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos, below is an excerpt:

Message from Chancellor Zeppos on student death in Israel
Vanderbilt mourns student Taylor Force

"It is with extreme sadness that I write to inform you that Taylor Force, a student at our Owen Graduate School of Management, was fatally wounded March 8 in a stabbing attack while on an Owen school trip to Tel Aviv, Israel. All other Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff on the trip are safe.

Taylor embarked on this trip to expand his understanding of global entrepreneurship and also to share his insights and knowledge with start-ups in Israel. He exemplified the spirit of discovery, learning and service that is the hallmark of our wonderful Owen community. This horrific act of violence has robbed our Vanderbilt family of a young hopeful life and all of the bright promise that he held for bettering our greater world.

Taylor’s family and his friends and colleagues have our deepest sympathy and utmost support."
Taylor Force is a US Army veteran and a graduate of West Point. He is an American hero.

The Palestinian terrorists have struck the very heart of the U.S. The attack occurred during Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Israel and his family was just down the block when Taylor lost his life. I am so sorry and grieve for Taylor's family and friends.

In memory of Taylor Force, this separate story is very inspiring, especially when you consider Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel have not met Messiah...... yet. But they are bragging about those that have.
Israel Inspired: How Christian Volunteers Saved the Lives of Two IDF Soldiers
"One evening outside a Jewish town 2 IDF soldiers were ambushed and attached by Jihadist Muslim terrorists. Somehow the soldiers managed to escaped.

Covered in blood they ran towards a tent filled with people. Little did they know inside the tent was filled with non Jewish tourists and volunteers who had come to the land to serve Israel. These people never imagined they would encounter the war against the Jewish people so personally. It was these volunteers who saved the lives of 2 wounded IDF soldiers.

This is a story of how their lives were changed forever. And a story that is a sign of what the future holds for Israel and the nations of the world."
It is time to wake up.

Dividing the the nation of Israel gives the Palestinian terrorists part of the Promised Land and the the city of Jerusalem. It is as if we are living in the Twilight Zone as the U.S. seeks to pressure Israel to give up God's land.

God's word is unchanging: the Lord will judge all nations that divide His land.

White House Working on Renewed Mideast Peace Push

The Obama White House has now joined the UN push once again to attempt to divided Israel and Jerusalem.
The U.S. is discussing plans to revive Middle East talks before Obama leaves office, including possible Security Council resolution, senior U.S. officials say

"The White House is working on plans for reviving long-stalled Middle East negotiations before President Barack Obama leaves office, including a possible United Nations Security Council resolution that would outline steps toward a deal between the Israelis and Palestinians, according to senior U.S. officials.

The internal discussions are aimed at offering a blueprint for future Israeli-Palestinian talks in a bid to advance a critical foreign-policy initiative that has made little progress during Mr. Obama’s two terms in the White House, the officials said.

The strongest element on the list of options under consideration would be U.S. support for a Security Council resolution calling on both sides to compromise on key issues, something Israel had opposed and Washington has repeatedly vetoed in the past.

Other initiatives could include a presidential speech and a joint statement from the Middle East Quartet, an international group comprising the U.S., the United Nations, the European Union and Russia.

A senior administration official said no final decisions have been made and that Mr. Obama is considering a range of possibilities. The timing of any new White House move hasn’t been determined, but officials said it would be later this year.

The White House offered Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a meeting with Mr. Obama later this month, but Mr. Netanyahu declined, administration officials said Monday."
As nations set their sights on dividing the land...

North Korea's Kim says country has miniaturised nuclear warhead
"North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the country has miniaturised nuclear warheads to be mounted on ballistic missiles and ordered improvements in the power and precision of its arsenal, its state media reported on Wednesday.

Kim has called for his military to be prepared to mount pre-emptive attacks against the United States and South Korea and stand ready to use nuclear weapons, stepping up belligerent rhetoric after coming under new U.N. and bilateral sanctions.

U.S. and South Korean troops began large-scale military drills this week, which the North calls "nuclear war moves" and threatened to respond with an all-out offensive."
Wake Up Call January 26, 2016: Today, in UN Security Council Meeting #7610 member states debated the reasons to divide the Promised Land in opposition to God's Word.

Act Now to Prevent Two-State Solution from ‘Slipping Away Forever’, Secretary-General Warns during Security Council Debate
"During the ensuing debate, speakers condemned the escalating violence, urging the parties to do their utmost to de-escalate tensions and re-establish a mechanism to address incitement, since continuing hostilities chipped away at the validity of the Oslo Accords. Many called for resumed negotiations, while several voiced opposition to Israel’s settlement expansion, especially in Area C, pressing the Council to shoulder its responsibility to hold it to account by requiring its withdrawal from occupied territory.

In that context, Egypt’s representative pointed out that 20 years had passed since the agreement that should have led to the creation of a Palestinian State on the basis of the 1967 borders and with Al-Quds al-Sharif as its capital. Urging a focus on the Arab Peace Initiative, he said a two-State solution was necessary for coexistence among the region’s peoples. Egypt would work with its Council partners to provide an international protectorate for Palestinians, he said.

In similar vein, Lebanon’s representative asked how long the Council would remain silent while the self-proclaimed so-called “only democracy” in the Middle East continued to demolish homes, seize land and intensify settlement activities, in addition to measures that segregated people in East Jerusalem. She also noted that Israel had violated her country’s sovereignty a total of 1,168 times in 2015, by air, land and sea.

Kuwait’s representative, speaking on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), said Israel’s actions sought to change the Islamic character of Jerusalem, which would only stoke violent extremism. He called for an international conference to regalvanize the peace process and help ensure the success of the two-State solution."
Wake Up Call January 15, 2016: I just read in a report that says "The world is facing the worst risks in a generation"

Like wheat in a winepress, the CNN report references the incredible migrant exodus crisis we have all seen that was released in the Shemittah that may well be linked to the pressure the world is putting on an attempt to divide the Promised Land.

The winepress reminds me too of the stock prices we are all seeing squeezed of out the markets since Elul 2015. Today, the "Dow plunges 391 points as fear grips markets".
"Currently, an estimated 60 million people have been forced to flee their homes due to war, poverty and natural disasters. That's equivalent to the world's 24th largest country and the largest number in history."

"The risks are more real, more imminent, more tangible... we are on the edge of a tipping point"
What's amazing about the figure is that it is some 20-30 times the number that left Egypt some 70 Jubilees ago, but the storyline draws a parallel as ISIS locusts from the east arrived just before Passover 2014 as the plagues began in Nineveh.

This reminds me of Gideon's story and it includes kings from Arabia (Midian). Judges 6 tells us...

The sons of Israel (ben Yisra'el) did evil in the eyes of the LORD, and the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian (strife) for seven years.

Because the power was so oppressive, they prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves and strongholds as the Midianites, Amalekites and the people of the east invaded ike innumerable swarms of locusts. It was impossible to count them; they invaded the land to ravage it.

Midian (Arabia) impoverished the Israelites and they cried out to the LORD for help so he sent them a prophet, who said:
This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says:

I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians.
I delivered you from the hand of all your oppressors.
I drove them out before you and gave you their land.
I said to you, ‘I am the LORD your God.

Do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live. But you have not listened to me.
Notice, the prophet did not really give any new information.

Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress [not a threshing floor] when the messenger of the LORD appeared and said: “The LORD is with you, mighty warrior.”

Gideon gave an excuse like Moses... Excuse me, if The Lord is with us why has this happened and where are the miracles? My family is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least.
The LORD answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”
Gideon knew the story of Moses so he was confident that YHVH doesn't have a problem providing a sign so he said, “If now I have found favor in your eyes, give me a sign that it is really you talking to me."

Is there a Gideon out there?

Wake Up Call November 13, 2014: We all mourn with France as they try to deal with the radical Islamic ISIS attack that took 129 souls and critically injured 352 people. But this is not an isolated incident, but it is a sign of what is to arrive.

Fox News declares: Rep. King: Paris Terror Attacks Should Be a Wake-Up Call for the U.S.
"Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told Megyn Kelly tonight that the terror attacks in Paris should be a wake-up call for the people of the United States.

"It's the nightmare scenario that all of us who deal with intelligence and Islamic terrorism fear," King said. "This was terrorism at its worst. And this what can happen really in any major, large city in the United States or in Europe. And we have to always be on our guard. I hope this is a wake-up call."

He said this goes to show that it's going to be a long fight before ISIS, Al Qaeda and Islamic terrorism are defeated and destroyed.

"This is the real deal."
Wake Up Call November 9, 2015: Normally, I would not refer you to a graphic video like this but the Bible warns us that evil will be unleashed. This horror must be discerned as a: Palestinian Woman Tries to Stab Israeli Guard

"Israeli authorities have released chilling footage of a Palestinian woman trying to stab an Israeli security guard.

The guard was checking the woman’s ID in a West Bank settlement when she suddenly pulled a knife out of her bag and lunged at him.

Fortunately, the guard only suffered minor injuries, Gretchen Carlson said on “The Real Story” this afternoon."

Wake Up! The war continues today between Jezebel and Elijah.

The warning of Joel 3:1-2 is don't tolerate those that seek to divide God's land. Those that will cast lots for Judah are a spiritually castrated people that unwittingly hold the knife of Jezebel. Her slashing will bring a curse to the doorstep as her killing spirit is unleashed across the planet. Pray for protection.

Don't mute the voice of the Bible's prophets or Yeshua will oppose you! Jezebel is on a dark mission. She was the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and she went and served the false god Baal and worshipped him... (read 1Kings 16:31 and 1Kings 18:13).
But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel... Revelation 2:20
Jezebel introduced the worship of Ashtoroth to Israel.

Jezebel used position and power to seek to dominate. In Hebrew, Jezebel means "without co-habitation". She will not live or "co-habit" with those she cannot dominate and control. The Jezebel spirit seeks to establish control without the actual use of physical force, at least initially. Jezebel seeks to be close to leaders and use their power. She likes to use the influence of others to accomplish her goals and control just as the UN resolutions seek to control Israel. In 1Kings 21:8 we see:
"Jezebel wrote letters in Ahab’s name and sealed them with his seal, and sent them to the elders and nobles of the city."
This is how Jezebel works, she prefers to remain in the background, while she manipulates situations and leaders like the controlling, self righteous UN Security Council.

Jezebel’s greatest enemy is God's covenant for the Promised Land and the Kingdom of God. As Jezebel opposed Elijah, so Jezebel today opposes The Jewish right to Israel. In her heart, she despises their heritage. Jezebel gained control of Naboth’s vineyard under the pretense of religion. She uses Islam as a religion of peace because she needs it.

Remember the adulterous woman in Proverbs 7? She first lured the foolish young man with, "I’ve just finished making my peace offerings, and have come looking for you."

We must be like Elijah t see and oppose her deception but we can't withdraw. When Jezebel threatened Elijah, he turned and fled to the desert. Think about this. It makes NO sense. Elijah enjoyed supernatural protection for seven years. He watched fire fall from heaven and defeat his enemies, yet when evil threatened, he lost his way and ran away from the problem.

This is the example of Jezebel’s powerful demonic "spirit" to intimidate, create fear, and cause men of God to withdraw. Jezebel can steal your vision, she even intimidated Elijah.

There will be another showdown like Mt. Carmel when Elijah called down fire from heaven and defeated the priests of Baal. All Israel fell in repentance, worshipping the 'One' true God.

This is a call to all that call themselves Palestinians, His name is not Allah.

Stop your wave of terror!!!

Wake Up Call October 29, 2015: Halloween is disguised by candy and kids, its from the pit of hell. 

It's a "grave" deception that no one should have any part of in any form, fashion or tradition. It a time when evil is seen and the adversary is celebrated. Nowhere is this more manifest than in this demonic October hate speech from former Gaza interior minister Fathi Hammad of Hamas that I pray no Palestinian will ever again give any regard to.

Hammad, Hamas, Halloween. Don't go near any of these evils. Parents don't dress your children as vampires, devils, witches or ghosts and encourage them to to trick or treat. Don't join the crowd and decorate with gravestones, skeletons, goblins and carved pumpkins.

Why not? 

The celebration seems fun but it's got a God problem, whether you see it or not, it celebrates things detestable to The Lord:
“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to The Lord.” - Deuteronomy 18:10-12
It's dark and pagan like Fathi Hammad of Hamas. Every speech he makes is given to engage evil Satanic power just as Samhain celebrates dark forces that roam the earth. This guy is possessed, just look in his eyes. But our Savior loves him, He died for him. I must pray for his salvation.

Although people dismiss the demonic divination of Halloween as harmless, the Bible reveals Revelation 12:9 which declares: “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

As a loving Father, God tells us what to do concerning the dark spirit world: “Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:31

Halloween is the highest day in the occult and this is only one part of the evil that is Halloween. Many try and ‘Christianize’ this day, calling it a fun harvest time, but Believers are to be set apart from Satan. We need only walk in the ways of Yeshua.

Wake Up Call October 17, 2015: France advancing plan to deploy international observers at Jerusalem's Temple Mount

France plans to invite representatives from the Arab League to talks with an eventual goal to lead a Palestinian statehood resolution at the UN Security Council. Hear the warnings of Zechariah and Joel, this opposes God's word. France wake up so that you may escape all these things that shall come to pass, don't cast these lots, you'll be drawn to the valley of judgment!

Wake Up Call October 16, 2015: France urges stepped up international action to end Israeli-Palestinian conflict
"France's U.N. ambassador is calling for stepped up international action to find a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Francois Delattre told an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Friday that it's crucial the two-state solution does not fall apart, given the risk that Islamic State extremists might take up the Palestinian cause "with the consequences we can imagine."

He said France is drafting a council statement that will appeal for restraint by all parties and maintaining the status quo at Jerusalem's holiest site.

Delattre called for the U.S., U.N., EU, Russia and key Arab nations to meet and work on confidence-building measures to ease tensions, support Palestinian reconciliation and draw up "guarantees and compensation that each party will need" in order to sign a peace agreement."
Hear the warnings of Zechariah and Joel, this opposes God's word. France wake up so that you may escape all these things that shall come to pass, don't cast these lots, you'll be drawn to the valley of judgment!

Wake Up Call October 14, 2015: France's Proposed Solution To Israel-Palestine Conflict Sidelines U.S.: Invited 19 other countries and the Arab League to peace talks
"France is drafting a 'presidential statement' in order to advance a plan to station international observers at Jerusalem's Temple Mount to ensure that the status quo at the site is preserved, French daily Le Figaro reported on Saturday, quoting French diplomatic sources.

French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delattre said, at an emergency meeting on Friday of the UN Security Council on the ongoing violence between Israel and the Palestinians, that he would circulate a draft statement to the council that would appeal for calm and restraint and for a revival of the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and for maintaining the status quo at the Temple Mount.

Statements by the 15-member council must be agreed unanimously.

The unrest in recent weeks has been triggered in part by Palestinians' anger over what they claim to be increased Jewish encroachment at the Jerusalem holy site which is revered by both the Muslim and Jewish faithful.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said repeatedly over the past few weeks that Israel has not changed the status quo on the Temple Mount, nor has it any intention of doing so, characterizing Arab charges to the contrary as “lies” and “deceit.”"
Hear the warnings of Zechariah and Joel, this opposes God's word. France wake up so that you may escape all these things that shall come to pass, don't cast these lots, you'll be drawn to the valley of judgment!

Something is up so wake up!

The U.S. has lost its way under Obama. Like a puppet, he is pushing Carter's agenda to divide Israel. Carter's favorite media is the New York Times and the Editorial Board of that rag has just published the plan a week ago hidden among the recesses of the paper, it is titled: At the Boiling Point With Israel.

Wake Up Call October 1, 2015: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to the United Nations General Assembly. Note the silent message to the UN Assembly at minute 15.

Wake Up Call September 30, 2015: Remember the first crime? It was based on deceit and deception. Well here's the latest one. It was a 'delusional myth' given today at on world's stage at the podium of the UN General Assembly after 'so-called' Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas raised his State flag at the UN.

Abbas actual position is only that of Fatah leader. Fatah, now called the 'Palestinian Authority' emerged from Hajj Amin al Husseini, the Grand Mufti (1897-1974). He was a confidant of Hitler and mentor to Yasser Arafat before Mahmoud Abbas took center stage. The Grand Mufti sought help from the Nazi's in WWII. In November 1941, the Mufti first met with Hitler.

In 1945, Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his role in recruiting 20,000 Muslim volunteers for the Nazi SS. He escaped from French detention in 1946 and continued his fight against the Jews from Cairo and Beirut.

Now, Abbas, like his Mufti hero is claiming that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is "in danger" and that Palestinians must defend it through Ribat, a religious intifada to liberate what is claimed to be Islamic property occupied by another.

Abbas chose to open his UN podium speech Wednesday with libel and lies to support the Fatah covenant of death. He knows the stage would incite random terror attacks and violence against Jewish people, so now is the time to keep your eyes on Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Occupation? Really... the word is a lie. 

The truth is the PA was set up as a five-year "interim" administrative authority in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip after the signing of the Oslo Accords on September 13, 1993 between the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the government of Israel. That was just over 20 years ago. Israel has been around for 3,500 years.

So who is the occupier?

Unwittingly, the Oslo Accords laid the groundwork for the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the agreements. Inconsistent with Oslo, the PA became a terror sponsoring entity committed to sponsor Palestinian injustice paying pensions to families of terrorists who died in their attacks on Jewish civilians. Perhaps the most bizarre thing about the Fatah party leader's UN speech is that Abbas announced that Palestinians 'cannot continue to be bound' by the Oslo Accords.  The thing that no one is talking about is the fact that the Oslo Accords created the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority (PA) was formed in 1994 by the Gaza–Jericho Agreement pursuant to the Oslo Accords, so if Palestinians 'cannot continue to be bound' by the Oslo Accords they no longer have their foundation.

The fact is that during the Palestinian parliamentary elections on January 25, 2006, the terrorist group Hamas won control in Gaza dividing the PA and not only that, get this: Mahmoud Abbas' 'PA' appointment as President expired. He is only in charge in Ramallah because he says he is, and yes, you read that correctly, his appointment expired on January 9, 2009.

So far elections have been delayed indefinitely despite the fact that Palestinian election law calls for presidential and legislative council elections to be held. In February 2010, local government elections were called in the West Bank and Gaza for July 2010, but the Palestinian government leadership (whose authority has expired) decided to postpone their own elections, arguing that it wanted to safeguard "national unity."

Speaking of Ramallah, one should know its history since Abbas calls it the home of his "interim" administrative authority in the West Bank. It was founded by Arab Christians when not a single Palestinian as we call them today existed on the planet. Ramallah was occupied by the Ottoman Empire in 1517 and 80 years later its census had a population of 71 Christian households and just nine Muslim families.

Like the history of Ramallah he ignores, Abbas has dismissed Hamas and Fatah. He also ignores his expired presidential 'status' of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC).  Today, the Palestinians remain divided with two administrations since 2007, with the PA in the West Bank and the PLC in Gaza. Today, Hamas recognizes Aziz Dweik as President and there will be no final solution until new elections are held to end the ongoing Fatah-Hamas conflict. So, the real conflict is one of Palestinian political dispute between Gaza and the Ramallah in a Fatah–Hamas conflict.

There is no Palestinian "national unity." The truth is there is no state of Palestine either except a state of deception, division and terror sponsorship not reported in the headlines leads to Palestinian civilian deaths caused by Palestinian groups as Palestinian policy struggle to control internal security while Arabs living in the area believe there is corruption in the Palestinian Authority. They are correct.

The Palestinian National Council was established in 1964 and met to create the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the National Charter, which originally consisted of 29 clauses. The charter was amended in 1968. Yale University maintains the 'Avalon Project,' an archive of key source documents on Israel. Check out the 1968 PLO charter for yourself, it is the charter Abbas is sworn to uphold. It is called the Palestinian National Covenant. Just look at Article 15, it calls for the destruction of Israel, not peace. Abbas prays to Allah and the PLO does not know the heritage promised by Isaiah:
"No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17
The Bible records what the prophets have to say. They give a warning from God about that recompence. Joel says this:
Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head Joel 3:4
Isaiah explains the return of recompence:
Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. Isaiah 14:31
The interim administrative responsibilities accorded to the PA that expired in 1999 were limited to civil matters and never included foreign affairs, so what is Abbas' authority at the UN? None really. Palestine has only been given de facto "non-member observer state" status yet they do not have a judicial branch or a military force and there is no state.

Abbas and company simply use UN funding from the U.S. and the E.U. for to take a paycheck and to fund terrorist's pensions and sponsor armed groups and militias such as the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades while promoting and training hatred and violence in their schools.

Following the bogus upgrade of the UN status of Palestine to non-member observer state, it was proposed that general elections would follow in 2013, tracking 'unity talks' of Fatah and Hamas. In April 2014, an agreement was reached between Fatah and Hamas to form a unity government, and for general elections to take place within six months of the agreement. That has not occurred because Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas unilaterally changed the electoral laws insisting he could issue change by decree as long as the Palestinian Legislative Council was unable to convene. Hamas has called his decree illegal.

So the real questions are: what State? What territories, what occupation? Elected President of what?

All lies. So, what is the truth?
"Take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess." Numbers 33:53

"So the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their ancestors, and they took possession of it and settled there." Joshua 21:43
If you want to take the time to watch Abbas, you'll hear the lies spoken today in New York today... but what was declared in Jerusalem on Sukkot day three as thousands flocked to the Western Wall?

"Birkat Hakohanim"
"This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:23-26
Wake Up Call September 11, 2015: After Winning Flag Rights at UN, Abbas Calls For PA Flag over Jerusalem
"After winning the symbolic victory to fly the Palestinian flag at the United Nations in New York, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas called for the same to be done in Jerusalem, the “eternal capital” of the Palestinians.

On Thursday, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a motion allowing the flying of flags of non-member states with observer status. This allows the Palestinian flag to now be raised in front of UN buildings. It is bizarre to know that the only other country benefiting from this new rule is the Vatican, which signed its first formal bilateral treaty recognizing Palestinian statehood in May this year. The 'Holy See' has already announced that it will not exercise the privilege, asking that it not be named in the motion, despite Pope Francis being scheduled to address the General Assembly later this month."
Wake Up Call September 7, 2015: Today, The Times of Israel reported on the potential earth shaking fireworks at the next U.N. Session as spiritual warfare comes into to focus before our eyes.

Abbas set to annul Oslo accords, declare Palestine a state under occupation
"The Oslo Accords, as well as the agreement signed in Sharm el Sheikh in 1994, are expected to be canceled. Also set to be annulled are an economic agreement signed in Paris and several pacts on security cooperation between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.

At this stage, it is still not yet clear what the actual implications of such a decision will be. It will reportedly be accompanied by an announcement by Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly session at the end of the month, where he is expected to say that in light of the annulment of the agreements, Palestine will be considered a state under occupation."

Wake Up Call August 26, 2015: In June, the Los Angeles Times reported: Obama raises possibility of allowing U.N. vote on Palestinian statehood
"In an interview with an Israeli television station, Obama noted that his administration has “up until this point” quashed such efforts at the U.N. while insisting that the Israelis and Palestinians must negotiate a resolution. But he said it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding that the Palestinians negotiate in good faith if no one believes the Israelis are doing the same.

“How do we move off what appears right now to be a hopeless situation and move it back towards a hopeful situation?” Obama asked in the interview. “That will require more than just words. That will require some actions. And that’s going to be hard work, though, because right now I think there’s not a lot of confidence in the process.”

The comment was the latest sign that Obama has concluded that the U.S. must rethink its stance on the Mideast peace process if it is to maintain credibility in the world."
As the global stock markets have started shaking and shrinking from shock waves moving East to West this month while the Federal Reserve prepares to raise interest rates, we need to stop and look forward to next month beyond the stock ticker.

The U.N. "may" take a vote on a Palestinian State resolution that would ultimately divide Israel during the 70th Regular Session of the General Assembly that starts on September 15th. Believe it or not, the U.N. is calling this session the "Jubilee Session" because of the U.N.'s 70th anniversary and get this, the Security Council meetings will be chaired by none other than Russia despite the egress again Ukraine. The Security Council of the U.N. is the group that is responsible for debating peace and security so the focus will be on achieving international peace and security regarding conflicts in the Middle East and the keynote speaker at Security Council session will most likely be Moscow's own... Vladimir Putin "standing" before the U.N.

The General Session will include Palestinians for the first time in history because Palestinians have received non-member observer state status in 2012 and that allows them to participate in General Assembly debates.

Thankfully, they cannot participate in the Security Council but one has to ask, will Putin lead a move for the division of Israel for peace and security in this session? I don't know, but it seems that he may want to make his mark on the issue before the world and usurp Obama as the world's most stalwart leader. I am not saying he will, perhaps the U.N. may address this in another session. The 71st is September 13-26, 2016, the 72nd is September 12-25, 2017 ending during the Ten Days of Awe, just 5 days before Yom Kippur (Judgment/Atonement).

But I do know, the Apostle Paul gave warned about "peace and security" declared by men:
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3
He was teaching from the words of Jeremiah 6:14; Ezekiel 13:10 and Micah 3:5 as well as Moses as he preached the message of the Moab Covenant:
"These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb." Deuteronomy 29:1

"And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven." Deuteronomy 29:19-20

It is not with you alone that I am making this sworn covenant, but with whoever is standing here with us today before YHWH our Elohim, and with whoever is not here with us today." Deuteronomy 29:14-15
I just so happens that these words are direct from the ancient Torah Portion Nitzavim נצבים "Standing" that will be read on the Sabbath of September 13, 2015 across the Earth by the Jewish people.

The cyclical Torah portions have been a part of Jewish tradition in reading the Torah scrolls and the words of the Prophets in synagogues around the world for thousands of years. If you think the timing is just a coincidence, think again and consider these "forever" words in the same Torah portion:
"The secret things belong unto YHVH our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this Torah." Deuteronomy 29:29
Only God can promise peace and security in the Middle East:
“Do not be afraid, Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, Israel. I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid." Jeremiah 46:27
It is amazing to me that the UN announced this session will officially open September 15th and during that same week on September 17th, the U.S. Congress will vote on whether to reject or accept the Iran nuclear "deal" that threatens peace in the Middle East and the world. These events occur during the 10 "Days of Awe" that follow the Day of Trumpets (September 14th) and run up until Yom Kippur (September 23rd).

The week following the Jubilee Session opening, Pope Frances is scheduled to address the U.N. Assembly on the morning of September 25th the day after he visits the Whitehouse and makes his address to the U.S. Congress in Washington D.C. The Pope's U.N. "purpose is to take action on the issues that are confronting humanity in the 21st century."  The Pope's visit is based on Agenda 21.

The high-level general United Nations debates will start on September 28th.

Funny thing about the term "United Nations." In the Bible, the Hebrew word for nations is translated as "gentiles" in Hebrew, the word is "goyim." So it seems the United Nations is the "United Gentiles" against Israel.

God's word warns from the prophet Joel:
"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." Joel 2:31

"The Lord says: “I will gather all the nations ["goyim"]... the Lord Almighty will judge all nations ["goyim"] who divide the Land of Israel." Joel 3:2
Here's the problem with Gentiles united to move the borders in Israel:
"The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head" Joel 3:6-7

"Do not move an ancient boundary stone... Remove not a border of olden times for their Defender is strong; he will take up their case against you." Proverbs 23:10
And get this... believe it or not, a red "super blood moon" eclipse occurs the evening before the debates begin. It will be seen simultaneously in Jerusalem at 4:47AM and in New York at 10:47PM standard time as the sun and the moon will be centered at the equator between the U.N. and the Temple Mount. The eclipse will be visible to the nations in the Pacific, the Americas, Europe, Africa and West Asia. In the U.S. everyone will have to look East toward Jerusalem to see it!

This full lunar eclipse will mark the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as the Feast of Ingathering or Sukkot in God's word:
"And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field." Exodus 34:22

"And thou shalt observe the Feast of Weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the year's end." Exodus 34:22

"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD." Leviticus 23:34
And as many are now aware thanks to Pastor Mark Biltz, that eclipse will conclude the 4th lunar eclipse of the Feast Day tetrad eclipse series that began on Passover April 15, 2014.

In Genesis, the very beginning of the Bible, tells us plainly that God ordained the sun and the moon to be signs for appointed days and years. That's NOT astrology, which is a counterfeit corruption, but it's God's word to the world.

Students of the tetrad, and watchmen of Scripture, now know that historically God's appointed Biblical Feast Days have aligned with certain lunar eclipse tetrads and these time windows have tied to critical, prophetic events profoundly impacting the Jewish people and ultimately the whole world.

The most recent Feast Day tetrad began in 1967, just before the "Six Day War" which was fought between June 5th and 10th that year.

Ultimately, Israel took possession of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. That eclipse sequence began on Passover in 1967, and ended in 1967 on the 1st day of Tabernacles before it repeated in 1968.

Here's a look at that tetrad sequence:
1) 1967 April 24 Total Lunar Eclipse Feast of Passover
2) 1967 October 18 Total Lunar Eclipse Feast of Tabernacles
3) 1968 April 13 Total Lunar Eclipse Feast of Passover
4) 1968 October 6 Total Lunar Eclipse Feast of Tabernacles
Should a resolution pass to divide Israel in the 70th "Jubilee" Session declaring a Palestinian State and giving the Palestinians the "captivity" of East Jerusalem, the event will be both historic and prophetic. If that happens, rumor is out that Israel will be given until 2017 to release the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Take note, ten years ago, the U.S. demanded that Israel withdraw from the Gaza Strip and just a week after the deadline on August 15th, Tropical Depression Twelve formed in the Pacific on August 23, 2005. The storm became known as Hurricane Katrina and struck the U.S. on August 29, 2005. In the ensuing 10 years, parts of New Orleans have not recovered and Gaza has become a terrorist's launching pad with many 1,000's of rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists at the Jewish people.

Coincidence? Maybe, but hurricanes are strangely connected.

This year's U.N. "Jubilee" Session will mark 70 years since U.N. Partition Plan was first declared as Resolution 181 on November 29, 1947.

This U.N. storm, if it arises, may well become the major prophetic event many have been concerned about since the days the scrolls of the prophets were first penned declaring:
"For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." Joel 3:1-2
As a second witness, Zechariah declares the same grave warning:
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it." Zechariah 12:2-3
The U.N. agenda that came into world focus in October 1991 at The Madrid Conference may conclude the session on October 6, 2015. It just so happens that final session day will immediately follow the end the Feast of Tabernacles.

Do you think that is just another coincidence?

Many Biblical prophecy scholars and students including Rabbi's as well as Christian theologians, agree that a Hebrew Jubilee Year will begin on Yom Kippur in the Fall of 2015 and conclude on the same day in the Fall of 2016. Perhaps it may also mark the last Jubilee of the 120 years God declared to Noah in Genesis 6:3. It will also mark 40 Jubilees since Yeshua's ministry on earth ended and the 70th since Israel crossed the Jordan River and entered the Promised Land. If the U.S. supports a resolution, a warning may appear on the horizon.

God tells us in Genesis 1:14 that He gives heavenly signs for seasons, for days and years. So, it is pretty interesting to note that a full solar eclipse will pass coast to coast over the good 'ol USA on August 21, 2017 exactly one month before the Feast of Trumpets.

It's certainly not Scripture, but some 1,500 years ago, the Jewish sages of the Babylonian Talmud stated that a solar eclipse indicates a period of trouble: “If it is in eclipse in the east, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the east; if in the west, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the west." Babylonian Talmud - Mas. Sukkah 29a.

Could this be true? Only The Lord knows right now.

There is no thus saith The Lord intended here, but wake up, watchmen - eyes wide open and do all the words of God's instruction, Messiah's Torah. The promise is blessing:
"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." Revelation 22:14
Wake Up Call July 18, 2015: Another wake up call is sounded by Iran's support for Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon was reiterated today among chants of chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" in a Tehran mosque by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iran's Ayatollah Vows Opposition to 'Arrogant' U.S. Despite Nuke Deal
"TEHRAN, Iran - Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave no verdict on Iran's nuclear deal in a fiery speech Saturday but said his country's opposition to the "arrogant" United States would never change.

In an address at a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel", the hardliner said the deal was only about nuclear issues, pledging: "We won't let foreigners interfere with our affairs."

"American interests and politics in the region are 180 degrees different to ours," he said in the televised speech, four days after the Vienna accord in which crippling sanctions against Iran would gradually be lifted in exchange for long-term nuclear curbs.

"Whether the deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon. Even after this deal our policy toward the arrogant U.S. will not change," he said."
Wake Up Call June 27, 2015: This may be our last wake up call America. When what God has put together is divided, the door for our nation to be destroyed opens. We know this because of the Matthew 19:1-12 warning from Jesus: "Let no man divide what God has put together." He gave this dire warning after He taught from the Torah of Genesis: "Have you not read that He Who made them in the first place made them man and woman? It says, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will live with his wife. The two will become one.’ So they are no longer two but one."

On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States in a 5-4 vote, ruled it's majority opinion by a single majority vote that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution divides what God has put together and guarantees a right to a same-sex marriage in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. This ruling by a few robed in black cloth directly opposes the instruction of God established at creation. The ruling not only attempts to re-invent the Constitution but rewrite God's word against Jesus' warning. You can hear the case here.

The majority votes from Sotomayor, Kagan, Breyer and Kennedy make room for a tidal wave of religious persecution across our nation against those who hold the Biblical view of marriage.

The proper dissenting votes of the Justices must be noted. They were cast by Justice Roberts, Justice Scalia, Justice Alito and Justice Thomas.

God is the ultimate judge. He instructs us to repent and to tell others to do the same. We are not to condemn, only He is the judge of mankind, but as a light to the world we must see this as a wake up call.

The Court's anti-torah, lawless ruling aligns perfectly with the warning of Jesus to the Pharisees:
"So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness (Torahlessness)." Matthew 23:28
The Whitehouse rejoiced and it was lit up with rainbow colors last night... after this was heard from the Rose Garden: "Today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we have made our union a little more perfect".

That is a lie, but then again, that's where all lies and deception began... in the Garden (of Eden).

A Justice of the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia provided deep truth in his dissent as reported by the Washington Examiner:
""I write separately to call attention to this Court's threat to American democracy," he wrote in a dissent, just a day after he dissented in a decision that upheld a key part of Obamacare."

"The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact — and the furthest extension one can even imagine — of the Court's claimed power to create 'liberties' that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention."

"This practice of constitutional revision (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves," he added."
What Scalia didn't mention is that this ruling will move around the globe, further it will prove to be a huge blow to Christianity and open the pit of persecution and the legalization of greater perversion.

Believe it or not, on the same day a 5.2 earthquake was felt in Israel and dark news broke from the Vatican as it announced the signing of its own anti-torah, lawless agreement with the non-existent State of Palestine.

Comprehensive agreement between the Holy See and the State of Palestine
2015-06-26 L’Osservatore Romano
"On Friday 26 June 2015, at the Vatican Apostolic Palace, a Comprehensive Agreement was signed between the Holy See and the State of Palestine.

The accord follows on the Basic Agreement which was signed between the Holy See and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on 15 February 2000 and is the result of the negotiations undertaken by a bilateral working commission over the past number of years.

His Excellency Archbishop Paul R. Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States, signed for the Holy See and His Excellency Dr. Riad Al-Malki, Minister of Foreign Affairs, signed for the State of Palestine.

The following took part in the solemn act:

For the Holy See: His Excellency Archbishop Giuseppe Lazzarotto, Apostolic Delegate to Jerusalem and Palestine; His Excellency Archbishop Antonio Franco, Apostolic Nuncio; His Beatitude Fouad Twal, Patriarch of Jerusalem of the Latins; Mgr. Antoine Camilleri, Under-Secretary for the Holy See’s Relations with States; Rev. Fr. Lorenzo Lorusso, O.P., Under-Secretary of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches; Mgr. Alberto Ortega, Official of the Section for Relations with States of the Secretariat of State; Mgr. Paolo Borgia, Official of the Section for General Affairs of the Secretariat of State; and Rev. Fr. Oscar Marzo, O.F.M., member of the Custody of the Holy Land and Official of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches.

For the State of Palestine: His Excellency Dr. Ramzi Khoury, Advisor to the President, Deputy Head of the Presidential Higher Committee on Church Affairs in Palestine; Ambassador Issa Kassissieh, Representative of the State of Palestine to the Holy See; Ambassador Rawan Sulaiman, Assistant Foreign Minister for Multilateral Affairs; Mrs. Vera Baboun, Mayor of Bethlehem; Mr. Moussa Abu Hadeed, Mayor of Ramallah; Mr. Ammar Hijazi, Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for Multilateral Affairs; Mr. Azem Bishara, Legal Advisor of the PLO; Mr. Ammar Nisnas, Counselor of the Diplomatic Representation of the State of Palestine to the Holy See.

The Agreement is comprised of a Preamble and 32 Articles distributed in 8 Chapters. It deals with essential aspects of the life and activity of the Catholic Church in the State of Palestine, while reaffirming support for a negotiated and peaceful resolution of the situation in the region.

The Agreement shall come into force when both Parties have notified each other in writing that the constitutional or internal requirements for the coming into force of the Agreement have been met."
If you are thinking that these two stories are not connected, think again.

Consider the covenant promise given from YHVH God to Abraham found in Genesis 13:12-17. It's right here that God first tells us of the evil of Sodom and of the link to the Promised Land.

God says:
"Remember the former things from long ago, Because I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is none like me. I declare from the beginning things to follow, and from ancient times things that have not yet been done; saying, 'My purpose will stand, and he will accomplish everything that I please.'" Isaiah 46:9-10 ISV
Those that seek to walk in the ways of Messiah are grieving today, but we are to keep heart, Yeshua says:
"Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy." John 16:10
Wake Up Call May 14, 2015: Today is day 40 of the Omer Count, 10 days before Shavuot/Pentecost. Today is the day Acts 1:1-9 tells us Yeshua ascended in Jerusalem. It's been tarnished today by the timing of an odd announcement yesterday: Vatican Officially Recognizes State Of Palestine

From the NPR report:
"The Vatican has officially recognized Palestine in a new treaty that switches the Holy See's diplomatic relations from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli tells our Newscast unit the document still has to be signed.

The Vatican, in a statement, said the agreement had been concluded and will be "submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a date in the near future for the signing."

"Yes, it's a recognition that the state exists," said the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman."

"The Crux, the Boston Globe's website that covers the Catholic Church, provides some context about the Vatican's position on the Palestinian issue:
"Diplomatically, the Vatican has long supported a two-state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, providing security assurances for Israel and sovereignty for the Palestinians.

"Rome also backs an internationally guaranteed special status for Jerusalem, including protection for holy sites sacred to Judaism, Islam and Christianity."
Israel said it was "disappointed" by the Vatican's announcement and was seeking clarification."
Coincidentally, qt the same time, Voice of America reports that Obama calls on Israel to end “occupation”:
"In a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with the London-based Arabic-language newspaper Ashaq al-Awsat, Obama said peace between the Israelis and Palestinians is not only possible, but is in the national security interest of the United States as well. He said that is why the U.S. has worked so hard over the years for a two-state solution and to develop innovative ways to address Israeli security and Palestinian sovereignty needs.

Obama said he expects the new Israeli government and the Palestinians to demonstrate a genuine commitment to a two-state solution."
The Times of Israel gave more details quoting Obama:
“As I said when I visited Ramallah two years ago, Palestinians deserve an end to the occupation and the daily indignities that come with it; they deserve to live in an independent, sovereign state, where they can give their children a life of dignity and opportunity.”

Outlining his expectations for the new Israeli government, the president stated: “We look to the new Israeli government and the Palestinians to demonstrate – through policies and actions – a genuine commitment to a two-state solution.”
Wake Up Call May 7, 2015: If you are counting the days up to Pentecost. Today is 33 so it's 7 days to our Lord's ascension day (Acts 1:1-12 and Luke 24:44-53).

Not sure if this report is accurate just yet, but if timelines are included according to this report, it appears possible that just as Iran is perhaps unwinding from UN Security Council sanctions under the Lausanne agreement, Israel could be subjected to sanctions for non-compliance with deadlines to divide Jerusalem and God's land.

Exclusive: Obama to back Palestinian state at Security Council – payback for Israel’s right-wing cabinet

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report May 6, 2015, 9:23 PM (IDT)
"....Obama is reported exclusively by our sources to have given the hitherto withheld green light to European governments to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state.

To show the administration was in earnest, senior US officials sat down with their French counterparts in Paris last week to sketch out the general outline of this motion. According to our sources, they began addressing such questions as the area of the Palestinian state, its borders, security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians and whether or not to set a hard-and-fast timeline for implementation, or phrase the resolution as a general declaration of intent.

Incorporating a target date in the language would expose Israel to Security Council sanctions for non-compliance.

It was indicated by the American side in Paris that the Obama administration would prefer to give Netanyahu a lengthy though predetermined time scale to reconsider his Palestinian policy or even possibly to broaden and diversify his coalition by introducing non-aligned factions or figures into such key posts as foreign affairs."
Wake Up Call April 22, 2015: I think it possible that we might consider something big is on the horizon.

The U.N. and key members including France and others like Great Britain are promoting a new U.N. resolution on Palestine that would divide Jerusalem and designate it as a "shared capitol" with the goal of setting a time frame for a full Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank as well as East Jerusalem setting the stage for the heavy burden of a Palestinian state.

Seriously... are you kidding me, a "shared capitol"?

There is no such place in all of human history. The concept doesn't fit anywhere. A "capitol" is the one city that is the official seat of government of "a" country or "a" state. God help us all. Listen to the trumpet call of Joel. His revelation message must no longer be ignored in America, Russia Europe or the UN. We must not cause our own curse of judgment by dividing the Promised Land. The Quartet must hear this plea. Don’t gather against her. Don’t seek to divide, God will bring any down that oppose His word, He will deal and execute judgment.

Instead, we must seek to restore the Promised Land because as a Believer, that land is yours too and the message is clear from the enemy, if you wipe Israel off the map in any way, you will break your own back.
"FOR BEHOLD, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for their treatment of My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land." Joel 3:1-2.
Listen, the P5+1 nations are attempting to finalize a nuke deal by the end of June with Iran even as US warships move into the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf near Yemen's coast to counter a convoy of Iranian cargo ships in the area thought to be carrying arms for the Houthis rebels.

We've worried about Iran since 1979 when the US Embassy was seized and American hostages were held for 444 days. They are the same nation that Militia Chief Mohammad Reza Naqdi has vowed that destroying Israel is non-negotiable. The only non-negotiable word is God's word.

There's something very scary and eerie about the Iranian Nuclear negotiations. It's as if we have seen a preview once before... Merriam Webster defines "preview":
● to see, hear, or show something (such as a movie) before it is available to the public
● to give a general description of (something that will happen in the future)
● to see an example of what something will look like
Fact: in 1935, Dr Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi Economics Minister noted the Aryan origin of the Persians and encouraged the Persian leader Reza Shah Pahlavi to ask foreign delegates to use the term Iran, "land of Aryans" instead of Persia. At the suggestion, the Tehran government, on March 21, 1935, Persia dropped their name and adopted Iran as the official name of the country.

Hitler was led by his racism master race concept that the “Aryan” race was superior. His belief was that the "Aryans" were destined to rule the world after the destruction of the Jews.

Neville Chamberlain 1938 - The British Prime Minister signed the Munich Agreement for peace with German Adolph Hitler on Tishrei 5, as Britain relaxed its position with the German government, a year later WW2 began as Germany made an unprovoked attack on Poland.

ohn Kerry 2015 - The Secretary of State whose great-great-great grand parents hail from Poland where WWII began now leads the Lausanne Agreement for a nuclear deal with Iran ("land of Aryans").

The fate of the Jewish people was front and center in the Aryan mindset of hatred in 1938 and it seems it remains so today in another form.

Zechariah tells us the burden of the word YHVH that made heaven and earth and formed the spirit of mankind says this about Israel:

"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." Zechariah 12:3

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." Zechariah 12:9
Today, France, Britain urge UN action on peace process
"New Zealand works on draft resolution to jump-start talks; US envoy stresses commitment to two-state solution

Britain and France urged the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday to set a framework to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians as New Zealand announced it had begun working on a draft resolution to reignite the process, according to a Reuters report.

France last month said that it planned to begin talks on a new Security Council resolution that would set "parameters" for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and for reviving failed negotiations.

"It's the responsibility of this council to adopt a consensual and balanced resolution that sets the parameters of a final status and a timeline for the negotiations," French UN Ambassador Francois Delattre told a council meeting.

New Zealand's UN Ambassador Jim McLay emphasized that the timing was right to move forward, after the Israeli elections and before the United States becomes embroiled in the campaign for the presidency in 2016.

"We have been working on a text that might serve the purpose of getting negotiations started," said McLay, adding that his country was prepared to wait and see how the French-led push for a resolution will play out.

McLay added that New Zealand was open to supporting the French initiative "if it has a chance of succeeding," but he made clear that action was needed soon.

"We have not seen the latest French text, but if it has a chance of succeeding, New Zealand stands ready to engage and to be helpful," he said.

Britain's UN Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, meanwhile, said that Britain saw merit in a council resolution that would set out "the parameters for a peaceful and negotiated solution."

"But this will require proper consultation to achieve the full backing of the council," he stressed."
No one seems to understand the risks of dividing Israel, a so-called peace and security solution. So we must think again as we consider our future and pray for peace and security...

Our friends in Britain, France and New Zealand I am pleading once again, listen to the trumpet call of Joel. We must not cause our own curse of judgment by dividing the Promised Land. Don’t seek to divide, God will bring any down that oppose His word, He will deal and execute judgment.

Wake Up Call February 27, 2015: The nations continue to fall in line: Italy backs 'recognition of Palestine' motion

"(ANSAmed) - ROME - The Italian parliament on Friday passed a motion presented by the Democratic Party (PD) calling on the government to back a recognition of the State of Palestine. The text, voted in favor of by the Left Ecology Freedom (SEL) party as well, urges the government to support the establishment of a Palestinian state that ''lives in peace, security and prosperity alongside the state of Israel, on the basis of reciprocal recognition and a reciprocal commitment to ensure that citizens live safe from all violence and acts of terrorism''.

The government is thus obliged to ''promote the recognition of Palestine as a democratic and sovereign state within 1967 borders and with Jerusalem as a shared capital, taking into consideration the legitimate concerns and interests of the State of Israel''. The passing of the motion - 300 in favor, 45 against and 59 abstentions - was welcomed with applause in the parliamentary chamber. The parliament also passed a document with 237 in favor, 84 against and 64 abstentions that calls on the government to ''promote the achieving of a political agreement between Fatah and Hamas which - through the recognition of the State of Israel and the abandoning of violence - leads to the conditions for the recognition of a Palestinian state''.

The Israeli embassy in Rome released a statement saying that it approved of the Italian parliament's decision ''not to recognize the Palestinian state and to have opted to support direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians, on the basis of the two-state principle, as the right way to achieve peace''."
Wake Up Call February 19, 2015: Genesis 12:3 gives a grave alert: "And I will bless those that bless thee and curse those that curse thee, and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

Italy on heightened alert over Islamist threat. And as ISIS threatens Rome and Italy faces new Islamic State threat from Libya incredibly this week the stage is set for Italian MPs to vote on recognition of Palestine

"A group of lawmakers in Italy has presented a motion to support Palestine as an independent state ahead of a vote in the Italian parliament, Press TV reports.

The non-binding resolution which will be discussed on Thursday was put forward by parliamentarians from the Left Ecology Freedom (Sel) and the Socialist Party.

The Democratic Party (PD) of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is said to be ready to support the resolution, making it likely to be approved.

Italian lawmakers say the move would break the political deadlock in the region and encourage peace negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians."

"The move by the Italian parliament over the recognition of Palestine as a state comes months after France's National Assembly overwhelmingly voted a similar measure.

Over the past months, similar resolutions were approved by a number of European countries.

On November 18, (2014) Spanish lawmakers overwhelmingly approved a non-binding resolution on recognizing a Palestinian state. Britain and Ireland also passed similar non-binding motions.

On October 30, (2014) Sweden went a step further and officially recognized the state of Palestine, drawing stringent criticism from Israel and the United States.

Earlier on November 29, 2012, the 193-member United Nations General Assembly voted to upgrade Palestine’s status to non-member observer state."
Wake Up Call December 31, 2014: Many events are converging. Too many it seems for mere chance or coincidence to be engaged. For example, some 2,000 years ago a trial was held before a Roman court before the garments of the innocent Yeshua were "divided" and lots cast for them at His crucifixion. The Young's literal translation of Matthew 27:35 states:
"And having crucified him, they divided his garments, casting a lot, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the prophet, 'They divided my garments to themselves, and over my vesture they cast a lot"
Today, Abbas seeks criminal charges against Israel. A week ago he said that Israel: "will be forced to assume its responsibilities as an occupier”. In its last vote of 2014 as noted by NBC: U.N. Rejects Palestinian Resolution Seeking Israeli Withdrawal

"The United Nations Security Council has rejected a Palestinian-backed resolution calling for Israel to withdraw from disputed territories by late 2017, with the United States voting against the measure and five other nations abstaining from the vote."
If you are a Bible student, take notice. If Tuesday’s vote at the Security Council would have gone the other way it would have set a 3 year timeline for a security council mandate of an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 borders.

If you read the Bible you must consider the timeline that has been delayed for now. Yet today, as Israel defended it people from the 4,500 rockets fired from Gaza over the summer, Abbas signed the ICC's founding treaty. It is none other than the Rome Statute, in an attempt to pave the way for a possible war crimes trial against the innocent nation of Israel at the International Criminal Court based in The Hague, Netherlands.

The Palestinian Authority is [purportedly] empowered due to their upgraded “Observer Status” at the U.N. in December. With this status granted they join the only other permanent observer, the Holy See of the Catholic Church in Rome to participate as observers in the sessions and the work of the General Assembly.

I wonder if all the dots and lines are propped in order with the so-called "Observer Status". After all, according to the U.N.'s own description:

"Non-Member States of the United Nations, which are members of one or more specialized agencies, can apply for the status of Permanent Observer. The status of a Permanent Observer is based purely on practice, and there are no provisions for it in the United Nations Charter."
So, from my own personal perspective, a state status that does not actually exist has mysteriously and illegally allowed the signing of various treaties. Abbas does not lead a "state" he is not even legally the elected leader of the state of mind called Palestine. Abbas was elected to a four year term as President of the Palestinian National Authority in 2005. The term ended on January 9, 2009. Since then, the "Authority" elections have been delayed indefinitely.

His ability to join the International Criminal Court sounds as ridiculous as saying healing or helping an injured person on the Sabbath breaks the Torah.

The NBC News report goes on to state:

"Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas signed 20 international agreements on New Year's Eve, including the Rome Statute of the ICC, paving the way for criminal charges against Israel for alleged war crimes committed in Palestinian lands."
A separate report on the ICC filing was also reported today by Aljazeera:
"Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has signed a document at a meeting in Ramallah requesting membership of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Abbas signed the document on Wednesday, a day after a U.N. Security Council (UNSC) failed to pass a resolution that had aimed to set a deadline for Israel to end its occupation of territories sought by the Palestinians.

The president also signed a raft of about 20 other treaties, aligning Palestine with various international organizations.

The decision sets the stage for filing a war crimes case against Israel for its actions in Gaza. Israel's President Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to take action following the announcement.

The signed statute will now be passed to the U.N.'s secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, who will consider the application to join the ICC.

While not guaranteed, legal experts think the process is likely to result in Palestinian membership being approved."
If you think the United States is out of the loop on this whole war crimes process by voting against the occupation deadline think again. The U.N. is in New York and the individual that Abbas had to file the various treaties with under their new "Observer Status" is none other than American James W. Rawley. He is the Deputy Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and the United Nations Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory and he is the one to pass on to Ban Ki-moon.

Wake Up Call September 26, 2014: One News Page reports.... At the U.N. today, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of genocide and he demanded a deadline to end Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank

"In a speech at the U.N. General Assembly Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel on Friday of conducting a "war of genocide" during the 50-day summer conflict in Gaza but stopped short of saying he will pursue war crime charges against the Jewish state at the International Criminal Court. Abbas said, "This last war against Gaza was a series of absolute war crimes carried out before the eyes and ears of the entire world, moment by moment."

He continued, saying the devastation unleashed "is unmatched in modern times." Abbas also said he will seek a U.N. resolution to set a deadline for Israel to pull out of Palestinian lands captured in the 1967 war but did not include a three-year deadline as his aides had said he would. The recent Gaza war killed 2,100 Palestinians and has weakened Abbas domestically, with his Hamas rivals enjoying a surge of popularity among Palestinians for fighting Israel. Sixty-six soldiers and six civilians were killed on the Israeli side.

Wake Up Call September 2, 2014: If you are like me you may have heard a sermon or two that the 'end days' will be marked by a 'Peace Plan' from hell. A treaty that will involve the division of Israel. A plan between men that will be broken in the end. The two state solution for peace will be seen for what it is a two state illusion.

Well, as we head into the Fall Feasts of 2014, and the second blood moon that is coming on Tabernacles October 8, 2014 at the beginning of the Shemittah Year, we have a report, a wake up call that sounds much like all of these...

Abbas plan calls for Israeli pullout from West Bank within three years

"Details of the Palestinian leader's peace plan was revealed on Tuesday by the former religious endowments minister, Mahmoud al-Habash.

President Mahmoud Abbas will seek Arab League approval next week for his diplomatic initiative that calls for a nine-month negotiation window that will eventually lead to an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank within three years.

Abbas is scheduled to present his plan to Arab League foreign ministers on September 7.

Details of the Palestinian leader's peace plan was revealed on Tuesday by the former religious endowments minister, Mahmoud al-Habash.

According to the plan, Israel and the PA would begin discussions on the borders of a future Palestinian state. The two sides would devote three months to the issue.

In the second stage of talks, the parties would focus on the remaining core issues, including the future status of refugees, control of Jerusalem, the settlements, security, and water.

"President Abbas wants Arab support so that in the future he can submit it for acceptance by the international community," al-Habash told the Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad.

"The initial stage of the talks will be regarding the drawing of borders," he said. "During this time, settlement construction will cease and the fourth round of prisoner releases, to which Israel obligated itself in March of this year, will go forward."

"The goal of the Palestinians is to begin discussions that will eventually lead to the end of the occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state along the 1967 lines with east Jerusalem as its capital," al-Habash told Al-Ghad.

The Palestinian official said the peace talks would be based on U.N. Security Council resolutions and U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194, which calls for a just solution to the refugee question.

"If Israel doesn't agree to the allotted time frame, the Palestinians will begin to undertake unilateral diplomatic and political steps in order to force Israel to capitulate to the peace process," al-Habash said. These steps would include joining more international treaties and organizations, including the Rome Treaty."
Here, the Peace talks are given the reputation of good, but God says:
“Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit, and wickedness as with cart ropes, to those who say, “Let God hurry; let him hasten his work so we may see it. The plan of the Holy One of Israel — let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.” Isaiah 5:18-21
Wake Up Call September 19, 2014: Just in case you were thinking when you see the next world debate on dividing Israel will begin. It will start during the 69th United Nations Security Council...

It starts on Elul 29. The last day before the Shemittah. Four days after it ends... its Yom Kippur and yes, it's the 69th UNSC meeting. The prince of the world is so twisted.

According to this article from France's AFP... The Palestinians, who have already won observer state status in the world body, are threatening to join the International Criminal Court, which could open the way to them urging the prosecution of Israeli officials for "war crimes".

Wake Up Call December 4, 2012: In case you were wondering why the news of Jordan’s King Abdullah II visiting the Whitehouse was important in 2009... here's another headline to consider: Jordan king to visit Ramallah Thursday

"The visit seeks to reiterate Jordan’s support for the Palestinians, build on their historic achievement at the United Nations and help them establish an independent state."
Wake Up Call December 3, 2012: Abbas stakes his claim to Jerusalem not Ramallah
"One day, a young Palestinian will raise the Palestinian flag over Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the state of Palestine."
God's view is different. Mahmoud Abbas, the messenger of the Palestine Liberation Organization may be right, a Palestinian flag may soon be raised over a broken Jerusalem. But the flag will be temporary because Jerusalem is not the eternal capital of the state of Palestine. God says so.
"Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit [shall be] a fiery flying serpent. And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, [art] dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none [shall be] alone in his appointed times. What shall [one] then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it. Isaiah 14:29-32
