Zechariah's Vision Prayer Alerts

Latest Prayer Alert: March 24, 2024
Israel

I cannot keep silent, but awake and sober. There's a 3,000 year background story in the Bible to the Prayer Alert updates below. 

You might want to take a look at the original 2010 commentary titled Zechariah's Vision and the Quartet.

You can also check the Zechariah's Vision Prayer Alert Archives for other headlines on "the condition" of a global goal to divide Israel for so-called peace and security.

No matter where you look, you'll find current events with the backstage of the Bible that for thousands of years has warned of the goal of the nations to divide God's land promise in a two state solution, and it's a real time disaster in the making.

In the original commentary, I noted there's already a two state solution in place that's a disaster. After all, in a peace effort to appease the United States, the tiny nation of Israel gave away all of Gaza in 2005 and it quickly became headquarters for a state of radical terrorists with a Hitler-Haman like sorcery Charter to annihilate the Jewish people. 

Hamas is a sorceress. You shall not tolerate a sorceress.

If you turn your Bible to Zechariah's quartet vision, you'll see the seemingly cryptic dream with a timestamp of Shevat 24. That date occurs in January–February time frame on Pope Gregory's calendar. 

Shevat means "to strike" and it's the big time danger date stamp found in Zechariah 1:7-10.

Fast forward to today... dividing Israel is thought to be a geo-political solution for a Palestinian state. 

The problem with that anti-semitic state is that it is veiled in hatred for the Jewish people, not occupation. 

The original post details the goal of "The Quartet" nations. That goal is to shrink and divide Israel for "peace and security" but it's a disguise. It's an anti-Semitic conspiracy blaming the Jewish people for occupation and oppression. This will not last and The Quartet's dark "cloaking" of truth will end one day.

Almost 2,000 years ago, a Jewish man from Tarsus, trained in Torah and the Propehts by Gamaliel the Elder warned of this season we are in. Paul, the rabbi warned of labor pains in his letter to the Thessalonians when he wrote these prophetic words: 
"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.

But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober." 1Thessolonians 5:1-6
Time to wake up world, it's pretty odd that Paul warned that "peace and security" will result in "sudden destruction" doesn't it?

It's time to turn on the Scripture lights, wake up and be sober, not ignorant bowing to political correctness!

The Greek word for security is transliterated from "asphaleia" it it also means stability.

Paul connects his unusual warning to a message embedded in Zechariah's month of Shevat vision. It' this:

The LORD, the "God of Israel" will not be silent about a division of the Promised Land of Israel. Almighty God set the land grant for His people and the Bible is Israel's deed and that deed is tied to Paul's warning.

Any peace plan that zeroes in on dividing God's promise for peace and stability will become a Shevat nightmare. The truth is the real Middle East conflict is Hadith and Koranic darkness vs. Biblical Torah and Prophet's light.

Please take note, like I said in the original commentary, there's no "thus saith The Lord" intended in my view on Zechariah's vision. 

I do think there's got to be a reason for the vision. Not only that, Zechariah carefully mentions the eleventh Hebrew month of Shevat in his scroll for a reason. I don't know why just yet, but I do think Shevat will be the month division for peace may be declared by the nations that don't believe the Bible.

As far as I know, Zechariah's eleventh month date stamp is the only time we see Shevat in Scripture.

Zechariah wrote about his prophetic vision as the exile to Babylon was ending when Darius the king of Persia reigned after the prophet's readers had been captured by the Babylonians. There in Babylon, calendar names were adopted from the Babylonian's during the 70-year exile in captivity and there's a Bible reason. 

You will not find Shevat in the Torah. There is a big reason, the five books of the Torah only reference one month as far as I know. It's the month of Abib (tender green) and it's the first Biblical month commemorating the Exodus from Egypt's slavery. Abib is seen seven time in the Torah.

All other months noted in the five scrolls of Torah are stated as number counts after Abib. 

During the exile in Babylon, even the first month of Abib was renamed to Nisan, it mean "their flight." We can see the name change in the scrolls written after the exile including Nehemiah 2:1 and Esther 3:7. 

Esther 9:1 notes the twelfth month with another Babylonian calendar name, it's Adar and it means "glorious."            

There's more. In the first book of Kings, we see a reference to the second month as Zif ("brightness") in 1 Kings 6:1 and 1 Kings 6:37. Sivan ("their covering") is referenced in Esther 8:9. Elul ("nothingness") is the sixth Biblical month noted in Nehemiah 6:15. The seventh month of Ethanim carries the meaning of "enduring." That like the others is prophetic. 

It was given to the seventh month noted in 1Kings 8:2, yet after the return to Jerusalem from Babylon it was relabled as Tishri, but as far as I know you won't find it in the Bible. 

Bul ("increase") is called the eighth month in 1 Kings 6:38 and Tebeth ("goodness"), the tenth month is found in Esther 2:16. 

That sums up the seven "named" months found in Scripture.

Abib is the one month noted in the Torah and there are six in the Prophets and Writings for a total of seven named months. That fact points me to the seven trumpets to be blown on the new moon first day of each month. Are they blown during the time window events noted in Revelation?

The other five months in today's Biblical calendar that are called Jewish months come from the Talmud and other extra-Biblical Jewish writings after Babylon's exile.

Having said that, again take careful note, if you read on, the only time you can know "thus saith The LORD" is when Scripture is quoted. After all, it is Almighty God's voice that is important from beginning to end! 

Bottomline, if you are serious about your relationship with your Creator, it's up to you to hear His voice in the Bible and ask The Spirit of The LORD to reveal His words to you, not mine.

As also stated in the original commentary, I AM NOT claiming that the four horses, the four horns or the four craftsmen seen by Zechariah are linked to those seeking to divide the Holy Land for peace and security with a connection to Paul's big time warning, but the headline perspective seems pretty legit if you ask me.

What I am saying is that Zechariah's vision and the whole Bible must be studied with a watchman's open eye on the walls of Jerusalem and with prayers standing with Israel and the Jewish people.

As to the four horses and horns, that number should impress our view toward the four corners of the globe and they might just point us to the government powers over the planet. The four reminds me of King Nebuchadnezzar four part statue dream that he called on magicians, conjurers and sorcerers to reveal.

I do know this: we must not forget the Biblical facts about the Promised Land begin with a big time Almighty God of Israel promise that will not change no matter what the magicians, the conjurers or the sorcerers say.

At the end of the first exodus journey, Almighty God authorized just two men to divide His land grant as an inheritance.

Those two men lived 3,500 years ago among the native born and the sojourner's that joined with them to follow The LORD God of Israel to the Promised Land. Just as it is written, The LORD God said:
"These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for inheritance: El`azar the Kohen, and Yehoshua the son of Nun." Numbers 34:17 (HNV)
Stop and take notice that Eleazar אֶלְעָזָר was a Levite. His Hebrew name means "God has helped." The Hebrew name Yehoshua יְהוֹשׁוּעַ is the man we know as Joshua. He was appointed as Moses successor to claim the land and defend it. 

Joshua was from the tribe of Ephraim of Joseph and his name means "Yah is salvation."

Together, the two names declare 'God has helped, Yah is salvation.'

Their names contain great promise!

The Bible contains many prophetic warnings about dividing the land of Israel that take away from the God assignment given to El`azar the Kohen, and Yehoshua the son of Nun.

The LORD's warnings are crystal clear in Joel 3. They still warn today against those that seek to divide the land after the restoration of restitution given to the Jewish people in Israel in 1948. 

Zechariah 12 also includes dire warnings that have existed for thousands of years for those that come against Jerusalem.

Remember, God does not change His mind. 

We must all know as a surety that the Creator God of Israel warns of judgment against the principalities of darkness when His promised heritage land is divided by men other than Eleazar and Joshua.

Jerusalem and all of Israel's Biblical land grant is very important to our Creator because His land will be used by Abba Father to redeem and heal His world. The Creator will restore it back to the Kingdom of God as it was in the beginning and The LORD has chosen the Jewish people to prepare it for the Messiah.

Eleazar and Joshua have already drawn up the heritage map for the land of "all" Israel no matter what man made boundaries look like. 

It's important to know: "Do not move an ancient boundary stone set up by your ancestors." Proverbs 22:28 

Bottomline, following the miracle return of the Jewish people to the nation born in a day in 1948, and the restoration of Jerusalem in 1967, any division of God's land promise will bring judgment to the nation(s) that seek to divide God's heritage deed promise to bless all nations. 

Don't dismiss the Bible or its land grant, it's promise is much bigger than you think. Like I said Judah is back in the land with an assignment from Heaven! 

Dividing the land messes with God's gospel plan and that's a BIG problem!

Ezekiel 47:22-23 contains one key we need to unlock much of the Bible. It reveals God's perfect plan for the allotment of His Holy Land promise:
"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."
Think long and hard about that command from The Creator of Heaven and Earth...

Now consider another instruction from Jesus aka Yeshua of Nazareth. He taught on the high purpose of the Torah in Leviticus 19:18 which is not easy. It is to love everyone in prayer including today's neighbors of Judah because:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven. 
He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even the tax collectors do the same, don’t they? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than anyone else? Even the pagans do that, don’t they? 
Therefore be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:43-48
Two people, even former enemies can choose to live as one people under Almighty God but the mandate is prayer. That's the ultimate peace plan because no redemption is impossible for Elohim God. 
Yet, Joel 3:15 describes an end time like the beginning during the chaos of void before Almighty God spoke the light of day into existence to overcome darkness:
"The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining."
The prophet Joel gives us an end time road sign warning. Is it a metaphor, a Hebrew idiom or is Joel telling us that monumental tribulation signs from heaven above will be seen after division in Israel?

I believe it does and that sign is Messiah returning to save brother Judah as promised. 

So, if you are asleep at the wheel about Zechariah's Shevat vision - WAKE UP or you might just crash headlong into the shechinah glory cloud of The King. 

That's the reason why periodic "Prayer Alerts" will continue to be posted here for as long as I can to provide headline reminders to you as a PRAYER ALERTS as the nations of the world seek to divide the heritage land grant promise with God's purpose for the final redemption of all mankind.

As noted in the original commentary, another purpose for these updates is to provide food media resources so that you can understand you are living in Bible times.

The Bible is not old. 

What is happening and will happen in Israel today is Biblical. So, it is important to stand with Israel and the Jewish people and pray for the Shalom-Peace of Jerusalem.

It's also important to know that "Shalom" is not just "peace" although it includes that. Shalom is bigger, it includes harmony, wholeness and completeness.

In the end, a Shalom prayer will be a part of God's purpose for Jerusalem and Israel. Almighty God's gospel goal for His land is why I so concerned about any peace plan calling for a two-state solution that robs Judah. 

The Bible tells us judgment will ultimately come on all those that oppose and divide God's purpose for the Promised Land because it's Holy to Almighty God for good reason!

Ironically in the U.S. capitol where Greek and Roman architecture abounds as well as a giant ancient Egyptian obelisk that sadly points to our first President, some leaders in Washington D.C. are working against Israel's Biblical right to their land grant promise and deed. 

Their dark sorcery plans have come to focus since the 1989 collapse of the Berlin Wall that divided Germany, the home that birthed Hitler's Holocaust. Since then, many of our nation's leaders have maintained an unending attempt to divide Israel, disguising their goal as a peace plan rather than facing the dark evil that lurks in Gaza, Ramallah and beyond the Euphrates. 

You need to know why one-world order politics under man including a Caliphate don't mix with the Bible plan, so I will keep blowing my shofar here as long as I can.

Outside of a few church buildings or home Bible study groups, sadly many Christians have little Biblical perspective on the dangerous reality of any government position to divide God's land. Most can't see the disguised peace plan goal opposes Scripture and Almighty God's promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 

Sadly, people have forgotten the Bible. 

Afterall, God's Holy Word and prayer has been tossed out of American public schools by our so-called Supreme Court and due to Biblical ignorance, people are unprepared and reject Almighty God Word.

The Bible says that those that oppose Almighty God, oppose Him because of a lack of knowledge, aka the drought of His Holy Word. The Bible also tells us that drought eventually leads to pestilence and disease, then calamity, chaos and war! 

That is why so many Prayer Alert updates are here.

It's time to wake up, be alert, read the Bible, believe it and be aware of the critical need to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and last but not least do something!!

These Prayer Alerts update The Quartet message noted in the Zechariah's Vision commentary, and I pray they'll give you the truth from the "front pages" of the Bible, not just today's headlines. 

Our first responsibility is to remember the "sweet incense" offering of prayer. After all, Zechariah is the Hebrew name זְכַרְיָה (Zekharyah) that means "YAH remembers."

The Prayer Alerts will keep an eye on The Quartet of international governments from the four corners of the globe that seek to divide Israel. They include the UN, the EU, Russia and the good 'ol USA. 

The alerts stare evil in the face and The Quartet have craftsmen against them that seek destruction across the planet. 

You need to know The Quartet goal to divide the Promised Land is unwittingly taking a stand against the plan of The God of Israel. The reality is the God of the Bible uses the connection of blessings and curses with despotic craftsmen that are here to wake up the planet that turns against God's plan

The so-called "Peace Plan" seeks to divide the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. 

That West Bank plan will result in a scourge because it is a covenant with the Charter, aka covenant of death promoters of Gaza. 

Not only that, the craftsmen play a role because any "agreement" to divide the land of Israel to establish a Palestinian State rather than follow the neighborly instructions in Leviticus 19:18, Ezekiel 47:22-23 and Matthew 5:43-48 is a big-time end-time problem.

In reading Isaiah's words below, the prophet is providing a witness with a warning to Israel's leaders linked to Joel's grave warning for the nations. 

It's about a peace agreement insisting that Israel's leaders give up on God's gospel promise when things ramp up in another siege against Israel...
"Why hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers, that rule this people that is in Jerusalem: And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only [to] understand the report." Isaiah 28:17-19

Isaiah's message is even more telling when we look into the meaning of the Hebrew words. The Hebrew word for "vexation" is zĕva`ah, which means "object of terror." The word "report" as seen in the King James Bible is shĕmuw`ah, and it literally means "news."

The word "scourge" is the Hebrew word "showt" and it is defined as "national judgment."

So... is Isaiah telling us? A peace plan is linked to terrorism. Read the news headlines. They will affect everyone.

The Quartet's political chant is to divide God's land for "peace and security," so we must know the political nonsense before us today is none other than the "controversy of Zion" prophesied in Isaiah 34 and the prophet declared the promise that came true for the Jewish people in 1948:
"For the mouth of the LORD has commanded,
and his Spirit has gathered them.
He has cast the lot for them;
his hand has portioned it out to them with the line;
they shall possess it forever;
from generation to generation they shall dwell in it."
We cannot forget what the Apostle Paul told the "lost sheep" that were found at Thessalonica, the second largest city in today's Greece:
“While people are saying, "there is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come... So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober."
1Thessalonians 5:1-6
Paul zeroed in on the words given to Joel:
"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
Like Paul wrote the Romans, Joel tells us all Israel will be saved. This is promised in Joel 2:12-17 as the prophet describes the day when all the nations of the earth will be gathered against Judah and Jerusalem and the Jewish people there will cry out in mourning:
“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 12:10-11
We can all read Paul’s second witness to this declaration in Romans 11:26 that all Israel will be saved.

Yeshua-Jesus gives a final admonition about this:
 "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." – Luke 21:36

Now more than ever, Israel needs our prayer support just like Solomon's prayer in 2 Chronicles 6:28-35:

“If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, if there is blight or mildew, if there is locust or grasshopper, if their enemies besiege them in the land of their cities, whatever plague or whatever sickness there is, whatever prayer or supplication is made by any man or by all Your people Israel, each knowing his own affliction and his own pain, and spreading his hands toward this house, then hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive, and render to each according to all his ways, whose heart You know for You alone know the hearts of the sons of men, that they may fear You, to walk in Your ways as long as they live in the land which You have given to our fathers."

“Also concerning the foreigner who is not from Your people Israel, when he comes from a far country for Your great name’s sake and Your mighty hand and Your outstretched arm, when they come and pray toward this house, then hear from heaven, from Your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to You, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, and fear You as do Your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name".

When Your people go out to battle against their enemies, by whatever way You shall send them, and they pray to You toward this city which You have chosen and the house which I have built for Your name, then hear from heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause."

Peace and Security Prayer Alerts

Whether you stand or bend a knee - pray like Solomon and fight like David as a warrior with your prayers for Israel !!

June 2, 2024: Like Joe Biden, US Ambassador to Israel Jack Lew needs his head and heart examined.

On May 31st, as usual Joe stumbled and slurred though his teleprompter speech promoting that Israel will withdraw from Gaza and hand over Hamas led terrorists jailed for terror against Israeli citizens in a hostage swap deal saying:

“The people of Israel should know they can make this offer without any further risk to their own security because they’ve already devastated Hamas forces over the past eight months...”

What goes around, come around. Joe forgot that every time the IDF leaves the war scene, rockets fly into Israel.

Just a week ago, Hamas operatives fired a barrage of rockets from Gaza that set off air raid sirens as far away as Tel Aviv.

Something is amiss. I think Joe either didn't get the memo, or he skipped past critical details.

Why would Egypt and Qatar be in charge of tracking whether Hamas upholds their commitments? The facts on the ground are that Egypt has not helped the Gazans as they easily could. Egypt controls the border in the desert and yet they don't allow anyone to leave Rafah. In effect, Egypt holds Gazan civilians in a war zone. Isn't that a humanitarian war crime? The reality is that the Geneva Convention has been ignored and turned upside down along the fence. Meanwhile, Qatar's Emir Al-Thani houses Hamas' leaders including Ismail Haniyeh in luxury suite hotels and villas.

Now, Jack Lew steps out with a Jerusalem Post interview. His claim tracks back to Beirut where the Saudi Initiative was introduced in 2002 to track to the Quartet's 1991 goal announced in Madrid with guidance form Jordan, Lebanon and Syria that I've warned about since February 2010:

'Two-states is a defeat for Hamas,' US envoy Lew says, touting Saudi deal - interview

According to the Jerusalem Post: "Lew has been on the frontlines of helping steer the American-Israel relationship during a time of war, while simultaneously advancing a triad Saudi deal. It’s an agreement that includes a Washington-Riyadh defense pact, Israeli-Saudi normalization, and a pathway to Palestinian statehood."

Mr. Lew is a clueless Joe political puppet with the Quartet's two-state goal mirrored within the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative.

According to the article Lew claims: “If you really wanted to defeat Hamas and if you really want to defeat Iran, normalization with Saudi Arabia is a way to accomplish both of those goals,” he said.

March 24, 2024: Just a few days after Chuck Schumer stood at a Congressional podium demanding Israel hold another election to toss out Netanyahu, the Biden administration submitted an earthquake shift in U.S. policy backing a resolution calling for a vote at the UN demanding an immediate cease-fire in Gaza that would let the terrorists live on.

And get this, as the Biden Administration continues to build a political wall against Israel, the resolution was voted against by none other than Russia and China.

The story can be found on the UN website.

February 29, 2024: Fortune reports - Saudi-led alliance pushes Palestinian statehood plan as war rages between Israel and Hamas because the Arabs say Israel will "seek help from Middle East neighbors to rebuild Gaza."

This is part and parcel of the Saudi-led alliance to push their Palestinian statehood plan outlined in the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative detailed at the UN (Quartet) website during the middle of the Omer Count that year.
To top it off this week an appeals court in the Netherlands has now ruled that U.S. military owned F-35 parts in Holland can't be shipped to Israel because the court said Israel would use them in “serious violations of international humanitarian law.”

Gimmie a break Holland, the humanitarian law violation was the October Hamas attack.

There’s a fierce spiritual conflict and the reality is the abyss of war is raging spiritually and physically. It includes a volcanic tsunami spewing anti-Semitism and somehow you're court has forgotten what Hitler did to you when the Nazi's invaded your land much like Hamas did in Israel. You surrendered after they paratrooped in as ground troops killed your people. You established a government-in-exile in Britain while Princess Juliana and her children sought refuge in Canada before American troops showed up in your caves in Maastricht to help you.

February 23, 2024: Today Reuters reports: US says Israel's new settlements in West Bank are 'inconsistent' with international law

Yesterday, Reuters reported Foreign ministers at the G20 group of nations meeting in Brazil were nearly unanimous in their support for a two-state solution

If you are a Bible believer, this is not the time to just worry or think there's no hope, or now we're doomed. No, it's a time to do something about the headlines here. Pray and do. Israel is about God's law, so stand up and pray. Stand up and vote too, your voice counts. Write Congress. Tell your Congressional Representative to stand for Israel and our Jewish brothers and sisters, not condemn them.

Write your House Representative here's the link.
Write your Senator here's the link.

February 8, 2024: It's been 14 years since I started posting prayer alerts on Zechariah's vision and the month of Shevat is here once again with another big time prayer request!!

As the month of Shevat ends and Adar arrives on Shabbat, it's important to turn back and know that this week's Torah portion Mishpatim has been known as for a VERY long time, thousands of years in fact. 

Mishpatim means "Judgments" and it's found in Exodus 21:1 - 24:18.

After the Mishpatim were written, the Torah scroll unrolls past the Golden Calf crime scene to Exodus 34:6-7 where we see The LORD God King of the Universe describe Himself as "full of mercy and slow to anger but that in no means will He clear the guilty." 

The prophet Nahum repeats The LORD's self portrait in Nahum 1:3. 

Then Nahum 1:7 writes: "The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who take refuge in him."

That refuge includes a return in repentance and its front and center in the messages of Yeshua of Nazareth just as it was for Jonah to deliver to Nineveh. 

One reason, for the guilty the refuge of mercy and grace goes hand in hand with repentance.

Nahum is relevant today and his warning that: "There is one gone forth out of you, who devises evil against the LORD, who counsels wickedness" is not just about old Nineveh, it's now headed West. 

Why? One of The LORD's Biblical Mishpatim judgments is against false reports, siding with evil and perverting justice. It's a "you shall not" found plain as day in Exodus 23:1-2:
"You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice..."
On February 5th, Joe Biden issued yet another Executive Order. You can find it on the U.S. Federal Register. I'm afraid it is a Shevat "strike" against Israel's sovereignty.

It will become Biden's Breach. The warning has already been written: "Mene, Mene, Tekel Upharsin."

Get this, it's a Shevat dated work around that delegates authority vested in the President to the U.S. Department of Treasury in consultation with the Secretary of State to be able to impose sanctions that are side-tracked to the Foreign Assistance Act that rests in the authority of the President, not a cabinet member or the Treasury.

Biden followed that Executive Order today with his February 8th Presidential directive that you likely won't ever find on the Federal Register. It's tied to Section 506 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. 

The Biden directive is on the Whitehouse website with another Shevat timestamp and if you are a Bible believer, you need to know it gives the Secretary of State 45 days to determine if war time military assistance like that now given to Israel to help them defend themselves against evil is in compliance with international law.

It just so happens that Purim arrives in 45 days on Sunday March 24th, a month before Passover and I'm afraid the Biden Administration will make a back room move against supporting Israel at that time.

It's important to know about Purim and the Gaza connection. Purim is the focal point of the book of Esther when a man named Haman sought to strike the Jewish people and destroy them. Guess what, Haman was in the line of Amalek, a descendant of Agag the king of the Amalekites. Agag was the guy Saul failed to take out as The LORD had instructed and he paid the price. Haman was son of Hammedatha the Agagite and a big part of the reason "the word of The LORD came to Samuel, saying, “I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me and has not carried out My commands.”

Passover was preceded by plagues in Egypt. Hamas, the so-called Palestinians are a spin off of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood. They are the radical Arab terrorists of Gaza that were banned from Egypt. Southern Gaza sits on the edge of Egypt.

Amakek, Haman and the Pharoah that sought to destroy Israel chased down Moses as Israel headed toward Sinai for a meeting with Almighty God on Shavuot, but the fact is God intervened. Warning: everyone that wants to pick a fight with The God of Israel whether Amakek, Agag or Arab terrorist. America's leaders must take heed, don't be woke, wake up and pray for Israel, pray for peace, don't try to force your will on God's land, that never ends well, there's always a price to pay. Learn from king Saul.

Under the delegation of authority issued December 27, 2023, the directive looks to pass up Congress on defense articles and defense services and delegates U.S. military support authority to the Secretary of State for crying out loud. 

If you ask me, the rule of law is with Congress. Check out Section 506 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 which states "Drawdowns made pursuant to section 50682 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 shall be subject to regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations." 

Wouldn't you think that "Committees on Appropriations" are vested in Congress and not in the President's appointed Cabinet secretary or some international court under the jurisdiction of the United Nations based in The Hague on the West coast of The Netherlands?

Not now... 

Get ready prayer warriors. One that sides with the many to pervert justice carries a very serious Mishpatim judgment in the end... You must not utter any falsehood, nor follow others to evil. 

February 7, 2024: Here it is straight from the Saudi Press Agency stating from the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the liquid gold kingdom is pushing two members of "The Quartet" which includes the U.S. and the U.N. Security Council. 

The Saudi goal looks to let Hamas survive after all with a Sunni push to divide the Promised Land with an ultimatum.

So, I was wrong about my prior Iron Dome question, after all the U.S. Navy is just off Saudi shores, the Saudi's don't need Israel's Iron Dome for defense. Here's the prayer alert:


"The Kingdom has communicated its firm position to the U.S. administration that there will be no diplomatic relations with Israel unless an independent Palestinian state is recognized on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, and that the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip stops and all Israeli occupation forces withdraw from the Gaza Strip. The Kingdom reiterates its call to the permanent members of the UN Security Council that have not yet recognized the Palestinian state, to expedite the recognition of the Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, so that the Palestinian people can obtain their legitimate rights and so that a comprehensive and just peace is achieved for all."

February 2, 2024: Let's get the facts straight. Will Sunni Saudi Arabia seek Israeli iron dome protection from the Twelver Shiites madmen of Iran and link their protection against the Houthis who ave been firing off balistic missiles and fying drones with weapons systems designed and supplied by Iran to the politics of the U.S. Presidential?

Check out this report from The Straits Times: "Saudi Arabia would be willing to accept a political commitment from Israel to create a Palestinian state, rather than anything more binding, in a bid to get a defence pact with Washington approved before the U.S. presidential election, three sources said.

Months of U.S.-led diplomacy to get Saudi Arabia to normalise relations with Israel and recognise the country for the first time were shelved by Riyadh in October in the face of mounting Arab anger over the war in Gaza.

But Saudi Arabia is increasingly keen to shore up its security and ward off threats from rival Iran so the kingdom can forge ahead with its ambitious plan to transform its economy and attract huge foreign investment, two regional sources said."

February 1, 2024: It's Shevat, the month of Zechariah's vision. Today, Joe Biden has declared a national emergency with a letter to Congress and an Executive Order enclosed in the envelope. No. it's not about the U.S. border surge and unprecedented invasion with thousands of lives being lost according to the "Missing Migrants Project"  that tracks the lost souls.

Joe's emergency says its about the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 which is known as the McCarran–Walter Act, codified under Title 8 of the United States Code that governs immigration to and citizenship in the United States of America.

But Joe's emergency has a memory dilemma, it entirely missed the map of America we all learned in grade school.

Joe says his emergency is about the West Bank, and its not the west bank of the Mississippi. It's the Jordan River, but the thing is the West Bank does not have standing. It's not a country and certainly not a state, it's a translation of an Arabic phrase aḍ-Ḍiffah al-Ġarbiyyah which points to the land on the western side of the Jordan River bank that was annexed in 1950 by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and taken rightfully back by Israel in 1967 under the 1920 San Remo Conference ruling by Great Britain, France, Italy, and Japan. San Remo gave land title to the Jewish people supporting the 1917 Balfour Declaration that was supported by the Lodge–Fish Resolution of the 67th Congress signed by President Warren G. Harding in 1920. San Remo followed the Bible deed after 400 years of illegal occupation by the Ottoman Turks.

Despite the mandate by the League of Nations given to the British to police and administer the area, the Brits turned their backs and withdrew handing it over to Jordan after that country was formally established in 1946, some 26 years after San Remo. Yes, you read that correctly, Jordan, another area occupied by the Ottomans, first showed up on a map in 1946, after Britain ignored the Balfour Declaration, San Remo, the U.S. Resolution as well as Deuteronomy 19:14 and Proverbs 22:28. Soon they learned what "do not move your neighbor’s boundary stone" mean't as Great Britain's empire coninued to disintegrate. All that's left today is Britain, an island with only 68 war ships of which only 6 are destroyers in the Royal Navy. That was been described as "pathetic" in 2019 by the Brisitsh chairman of the defence select committee asit has continued to shrink over the decades. The UK even has a smaller shipping trade fleet than Malta.

In 1967, back in Judea and Samaria which had been declared with boundaries by Almighty God for thousands of years had a terror problem. Palestinian terror groups backed in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan ramped up vicious attacks against the Jewish people, just like the random attacks we see there today so it's not about any so-called occupation. The terrorists emblazoned their governments to gear up for battle to wipe out the Jews in their tiny pre-1967 enclave. In a cowardly appeasment after the six-day war, the UN passed Resolution 242 calling for Israel to withdraw from their land. Today, we have a virtual rerun.

Despite what Joe Biden or The Quartet which includes the UN says, the West Bank area is not "occupied" by Israel. Their deed is 4,000 years old and its irrevocable, given by the Creator of the Universe with a blessing. The land grant still stands and you can read it in Genesis 15:18, Genesis 17:8 and Joshua 1:3-4. On our modern maps drawn over the past 100 years, the Creator God given land gift includes everything modern-day Israel now protects and defends including areas occupied by the so-called Palestinians, part of Egypt and Syria, plus all of new found Jordan and big swaths of Saudi Arabia and Iraq up to the Euphrates River. Today, Israel has only a fraction of the Promised Land, the rest of the land grant awaits the Messiah and the greater exodus in the return of more Jewish people and the sojourners that stand with Israel and Messiah.

The root of the problem is very old, most but not all Palestinians don't believe the Bible. They have another god. If they did beleive the BIble, they would know they can live there too, but in a brotherhood of peace not conflict like the ancient Hittites, Canaanites and Philistines that all worshipped false gods. The thing is Almighty God doesn’t overlook anyone because of their DNA. Every person can be a part of the blessing for all nations by following The LORD. That blessing includes access to Almighty God’s Kingdom land to be ruled under Messiah's authority in the redemption plan for humanity. But, just like the days of Eden, a choice is required because each person is responsible for what he or she does. Relationship with the One true God, the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel can't be passed off and substituted with a fake religion.

Back to Joe's emergency. Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. dis not retain his Presidential authority with his own West Bank foreign decree. He passed it off to the U.S. Treasury with his order that "authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President."

January 3, 2024: From another Joe, a Quartet voice named Josep Borrell: EU foreign policy head urges world to impose solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict  

Nothing's new under the sun.

December 19, 2023 This story has not hit many headlines, but it's a MUST READ about an IDF hero defending the land against Hamas whose Hebrew name Urija means "Light Of The Lord."


"In a touching display of dedication and sacrifice, IDF Sgt.-Maj. Urija Bayer, a 20-year-old German Evangelical Christian, laid down his life for the State of Israel. Urija, from Ma’alot-Tarshiha, was a valiant member of the Maglan Special Forces unit of the Nahal Brigade. His story is not just one of personal courage but also of a deep, familial commitment to supporting Israel and its people, especially Holocaust survivors."

There's more to his life story, The Times of Israel confirms Sgt.-Maj. Urija Bayer is actually Jewish and honors the fallen soldier...


"A Messianic Jew whose family moved to Israel from Germany to help Holocaust survivors, Bayer leaves behind his parents, Gideon and Nelli, brother Zuriel and two sisters Rachel and Odelia. He will be laid to rest in the Maalot-Tarshiha military cemetery on Tuesday."

"Bayer’s grandparents had “always had a dream to heal, to bring about change, to atone for what happened [to Jewish people in Germany in World War II]. From their faith sprang a drive to help the Jewish people, the chosen people,” his sister Odelia told Ynet four years ago.

Following in the footsteps of his brother and sisters, Bayer volunteered to serve in an IDF combat unit. In 2020, Odelia placed first in the IDF Combat Officer Competition."

Odelia is a Hebrew name too, it means "I will praise the Lord."

November 12, 2023: From my view on the words spoken in Saudi Arabia yesterday, we must consider that the Israeli peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan as well as the Abraham Accord's normalization and security agreements with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, Morocco could come to an end soon, but I pray I'm wrong about that because I can't see the forest for the myrtle trees.

We can expect the Arab Group at the U.N. to demand a cease-fire and the U.N. will issue one of their made to order condemnations of Israel and call for dividing the land... again despite the Hamas' genocidal war crime of terrorist antisemitism that poured out on October 7th.

Egypt has already turned their back in a big way on Gaza's civilians that put Hamas in charge. They are complicit and refusing to help Israel allow Gazan civilians get food or seek refuge from Hamas and move out of harm’s way making them hostages in a cage while martyrdom-seeking Hamas terrorists use Gazan civilians as human shields as Hamas hides deep underground. The U.N. likely won't say much about Egypt's slavery-like move. Instead, from what I've seen over the years of reporting on Zechariah's vision, despite the Hamas' Charter filled with dark vows to destroy the Jews of Israel and take over Jerusalem, the U.N. will mandate the division of Israel for peace and a UN demand could include a cease-fire mandate that leaves Hamas intact to plan more terror attacks down the road of terror, genocide, mutilation and murder.

If you ask me Egypt somehow played some clandestine and complicit role in allowing Hamas to build theit underground military tunnel system that starts at Egypt's border with Gaza. Israel should have never given back the Sinai to Egypt which it lost in the 1967 Six-Day War. Despite Egypt's peace treaty with Israel they have built up a massive military machine funded by the United States, but why?

If you'll just open the Bible, the most widely printed book of all time, none of what is happening should come as a surprise. That includes the rebirth of Israel in 1948, and the uprising of the demon-like beast of anti-Semitism spreading like a plague of fire in humanity across the globe as some of the worst tyrants on the planet are cast as innocents fighting for land.

Jews and Christians must stand together and pray that the U.S. and others will stand with Israel and not allow Amalek-like hatred and anti-Semitism from the pit to stand in the U.N or on college campuses nor allow jihadi terrorists with a vow to kill Jews continue fighting while hiding in tunnels behind both Gazan civilians and the remaining hostages taken in the Shemini Atzeret October 7th attacks.

Back in the first Exodus day, one reason that Almighty God was so angry with the Amalekites is because like Hamas, they attacked Israel from behind against people including innocent women and children without defense. Exodus 17:16 reveals something we still can't ignore:

"YHWH will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”

Moses explains the attack of the innocents in Deuteronomy 25:17-19.

Another Biblical headline is found in 1 Samuel 30. The chapter tells another story just like the October 7th terror raids.

It's as if Hamas used the Bible as a playbook.

The descendants of Amalek attacked in the south back in the day. In the Negev at Ziklag, the Amalekites burned the town down and took women and children as hostages, so David came to their rescue, yet in those days, unlike today an Egyptian helped him.

The attacks against Israel did not end in Ziklag, a second group, the Philistines were next in line to attack the armies of Israel. They beheaded king Saul and killed his son Jonathan. Today, Hezbollah looks to be prepped ready for a second wave, a counter-attack led by Hassan Nasrallah armed with what is reported to be tens of thousands of missles aimed with a point of no return toward Israel.

After in Ziklag, in-fighting soon broke out in ancient Israel, it may again. It was between the house of Saul and the house of David. But, a man named Abner, a cousin of King Saul and the commander-in-chief of Saul's army sided with David and told the elders of Israel:

"In times past you were seeking for David to be king over you. Now then, do it! For the LORD has spoken of David, saying, ‘By the hand of My servant David I will save My people Israel from the hand of the Philistines and from the hand of all their enemies.’"

Later, all the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and repeated what The LORD had said: "You will shepherd My people Israel, and you will be a ruler over Israel.”

Like the Hamas' attack, this story may repeat when the Israeli political liberal left that ignores Torah will turn against Netanyahu in the right in Israel. I expect some to demand resignation or even call for a new election due to the horrific hostage problem that likely can't be solved. I pray that a modern day Abner will speak up and the elders of Israel will listen and call out. I pray they will call for the anointed Moschiach and Son of David to come and end the chaos.

When Messiah does come, harps won't be playing a rapture tune between the opening of the sixth and seventh seals of judgment. A shofar will sound for the warrior Lion of the tribe of Judah against spiritual darkness, Yeshua of Nazareth.

First or second trip, Moschiach will “rule with an iron scepter and dash them to pieces like pottery.” That's not all, in the end, the jealousy and harassment which has gone on between Christians and Jews for nearly 1,700 years between church and synagogue will end. So will the ongoing conflict and denial about the promise of the Promised Land which day is the Sabbath of The LORD.

For most it's very hard to understand the latter days to come, it's not only about good vs. evil or destruction for the ungodly that oppose and hate The God of Israel, it's spiritual. I certainly don't know the timing, but I do know The Day of The LORD will be in The LORD's appointed season. The Father is “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9) and that includes any Arab people that think of themselves as Palestinians.

Importantly as noted throughout the Bible, the day of The LORD is also about a family of God reunion. A reconciliation of brothers much like Joseph and Judah's so long ago in Egypt.

Isaiah prophetically wrote about the coming reunion some 800 years after the Exodus from Egypt. You can find the executive summary in Isaiah 11:12-14. The family of God will brought together again by the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). Ezekiel wrote of it too. The two sticks of God's family will come together in Messiah's hand. Ezekiel saw two branches become one. You can read all about that vision in Ezekiel 37 and be a part of it.

The Bible is also a warning for Iran. It's time to repent, their Mahdi is not hidden or alive. Iran, your leaders have fallen away and the Mullahs will betray you as they spew hate from their mouths like venom against Joseph and Judah. Iran's revolutionary leaders are the world's most powerful Amalek terror sponsors. They are in the demonic fight, joined in Haman-like condemnation and threats against Israel that started after the Enqelâb-e Irân aka Iranian Revolution in 1979.

Their Ayatollah driven hostility has increased against America since the end of the Gulf War in 1991, and both Israel and America must be prepared for the beast of Iran to bring out the wild ram in the goat battle. It's described in Daniel 8. It includes brittle feet of iron and clay (see Daniel 2) that include not only Sunni Hamas, but Iran's Shiite proxy Hezbollah paramilitary militants in Lebanon and the heinous Zaidi Shia Houthis in Yemen. Where on earth did they get all those guided missiles and drones in the first place? Iran.

The two proxies all want to follow-up on the Hamas Shimini Atzeret terror attack. Every Mullah proxy uses Iranian financed rockets and missiles aimed to destroy Israel and their allies, overrun Jerusalem and turn against the West so that they can destroy the one they call "the great Satan."

What goes around comes around. The end is declared from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10) and in Persia, renamed aka Iran only since 1935, there is a dark master behind the scenes in the abyss. As the say the devil is in the details.
,

The ancient Amalek-Haman murder plot remains. The tyrannical Mullahs had to know there would be a strong IDF defense. They had to know the Israeli must declare war against the underground Hamas militant terrorists after their brutal attacks just outside Gaza's fences. If you ask me, Iran is simply using Hamas as a Sunni martyr for their greater goal. The Shiites of Iran see the Sunni as disposable pawns and puppets because Iran's 12th Imam master string plan is not just about land. That's a bit part in the deception. Their war is against The God of Israel and the people chosen by The LORD God of Israel.

The so-called Palestinians already have land, yet they turned Gaza into a wasteland of violence and hate with an open election for a terrorist group in which 70% of the Arab speaking people living in the Gaza Strip voted for Hamas. The masses living there by the Mediterranean Sea were fooled in their vote against Fatah with ballots for a violent terrorist group rooted in the Egyptian Brotherhood. Ever since, Hamas has systematically destroyed Gaza and not only fired rockets at innocent Israeli citizens and children, they have hurt the Palestinians who wanted to live in peace with Israel as Gaza descended into a dark underground base of inhumane beastiality.

The truth is the real Middle East conflict is about dark hostile spiritual and religious militant evil opposing Almighty God's light and those chosen by the God of Israel to shine His light to the world about God's word. Bottomline, it's about the Koran vs. the Bible.

That fact can be seen in what the Gazan terrorists called their attack, they named it Al-Aqsa Storm.

Hamas leaders say they stormed and attacked Israeli innocents from behind because a few Israeli faithful were celebrating Sukkot at the Temple Mount with palm branches for crying out loud. Yet, the Arab News called their joy a "storm" against that mosque. Check this headine and the story link:


Gimmie a Bible break, if you same you have to take a look at this anti-Semitic headline article and judge the picture of the so-called "storm" for yourself.

What does this all mean?

It means the terror attack goes beyond the Sukkot Shemini Atzeret assault, it's a spititual jihad nightmare of Biblical proportion, and guess what - the Temple Mount is front and center.

Hamas' goal is ancient, it seems it started with Esau’s grandson Amalek whose descendants fought against Moses for crying outloud. Some 3,500 years later, it's now manifested with Hamas aka Amalek and Haman aka Iran. They share with one chaotic world ending goal: to annihilate the Jewish people. The evil spirit that creeped into Amalek infested Haman and the demon remains, but headlines won't mention a thing about Amalek, Haman, the Philistines or demons. The reason, they don't believe the Bible. Most of mainstream media discard the Bible, the voice of The Creator as religion. Still others think the Hebrew Bible is old and done away with including Almighty God's for ever promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

People refuse to believe or even try to comprehend that Israel's modern day Judah duty is to prepare the Promised land for the Messiah of Israel to come redeem the world from evil.

Take a look down below to Egypt's October 11, 2023 declaration to not lift a hand to help Israel protect the Gazan civilians that Israel has been warning and emploring to leave the Hamas battle zones riddled with miles of underground terror tunnels. In doing so, Egypt's leaders are acting just like the evil Pharaoh that did not know Joseph. Egypt is holding Gaza's people captive to the Hamas jihadist spin-offs from Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt is opening their Rafah Crossing occassionaly for the entry of humanitarian aid, but the border facts are they refuse to allow Gazan civilians to leave and take refuge from the battles despite the fact that that area in the Sinai would allow for that refuge just as it did for Israel and the sojourners with them when they escape Egyptian tyranny thousands of years ago.

Egypt knows that Hamas are martyr seeking mass murderers that will kill their own for survival and hide behind women and children. Yet, Egypt is empowering Hamas to continue Gaza's civilian catastrophe and al-Sisi's decision poses an existential threat to Israel’s IDF success over the Hamas-Nazi path of jihad terror with the heartless Amalek-Haman soul of Hitler's final solution.

This is good vs. pure evil, the sons of light vs. the sons of darkness.

Israel must defeat the Hamas goal backed by Iran to wipe Israel off the map.

The Haman, I mean Hamas "river to the sea" plot can be seen plain as day in the Bible as well as the headlines of war today, if we just step back and look.

The Psalmist Asaph warned about declarations like the Hamas Charter backed by Iran's demonic son of perdition master plan that unleashes rumors of more war. I'm no prophet, but history repeats. My view, all of this may point to something bigger when Purim 2024 arrives becuase history does repeat. Purim celebrates the victory of the Jewish people. So, I will be keeping an eye on the walls of Jerusalem on March 24th, standing in solidarity and prayer on the day of Purim because Almighty God stands with Israel, so do I.

Esther 10 is not just some Adar ancient history: "on the day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, it was turned to the contrary so that the Jews themselves gained the mastery over those who hated them."

Everyone that stands for or against the Jewish people needs to read the Book of Esther  and repent, turn around and return to The LORD God of Israel. You also need to read what Asaph has to say in Psalm 83:1-8.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi needs to close his Quran and open the Bible. Perhaps he's worried Hamas is embedded among Gazan civilians and they will escape, or he hates they fact that they elected the Muslim Brotherhood offshoot called Hamas. In either case he's aiding chaos and destruction. Here's the thing, in the end al-Sisi WILL NEVER be confused with a Good Samaritan.

So far, from what I've seen, the Biden Administration or the U.N. have publically questioned Egypt's Pharaoh-like move, but instead Washington has released billions of dollars to Iran while their proxy militias attack our troops in Iraq and Syria. Meanwhile, strong delusion protestors everywhere have adopted Hamen's anti-semitic false narrative, siding with Hamas, the sons of darkness hiding in underground tunnels as radical Sunni Islamic paramilitary puppets of Persia. Some 3,000 sons of Hamas as well as other Gazans attacked civilians, took hostages, raped, mutilated and massacred women and children in several Israeli kibbutzim and nearby rural communities around the Gaza Strip as well as the Re'im and Psyduck music festivals.

Knowing most Israeli defense forces would be out of the area on Shabbat and Simchat Torah, horrific massacres occurred in Be'eri, Nahal Oz, Kfar Aza, Zikim Beach Nir Oz, Netiv HaAsara, Alumim, Kissufim, Holit, Ein HaShlosha, Nirim, Nir Yitzhak and Sderot.

Let no one deceive you, Iran and the dark master from the abyss is behind the butchering, hatred, mutilations, brutal sexual assaults, rapes, beheadings and fire of death that poured out of on Gaza October 7th into Israel.

Iran is the heart of Shi'i Islam, and it spills over into Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. Iran's so-called Supreme Leader vehemently stands against Israel's God given right to exist and against America. The Mullahs led by a Twelver Shia Ayatollah are plotting old, dark Amalek-Haman schemes against the The LORD God of Israel and His chosen beacon people of the Torah. They have more horrifically grotesque plans based on a beast belief for the reappearance of their al-Mahda. They call him the 12th Imam and the Shiite Twelvers of Iran believe he will only reappear after apocalyptic war to establish the global nightmare of a one-world Shia Caliphate government under thier own version of Sharia law.

That law imposes harsh punishments for various offenses, especially against non-Muslim apostasy and women. Their Sharia includes death for apostasy and death for extramarital relations although Shiite husbands claim the right of polygamy. It includes chopping off hands for theft and lashes those that drink alchohol. Their house rules stem from their religious beliefs that trace back to the seventh century interpretations of the Qurʾān and thousands of Hadiths written along the past 1400 years, not the Bible.

Not only that, the U.S. Administration from the Whitehouse to the State House is still promoting an urgent need to stand up for The Quartet's catch-22 two-state divison of Israel for peace and security for those that follow the Qurʾān vs. the Bible. The two-state goal forgets all about the Joel 3 warnings and the apostle Paul's summary found in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6.

As usual, deception is at hand and hiding in plain sight in the darkness. So, you must decide which side you stand on. If you stand with light, stand with Israel and pray with them. While you stand, let anyone you know that's Jewish you stand with them!

According to this Aljazeera report on Egypt: "One of the Egyptian security sources, who asked not to be identified, said Egypt rejected the idea of safe corridors for civilians to protect "the right of Palestinians to hold on to their cause and their land.""

That's a garbage can curse that will see no blessing. Not only that, after the vicious Shabbath attacks according to The Arab News: Saudi crown prince says Israel bears responsibility for ‘crimes’ against Palestinians in Gaza  

"RIYADH: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the US to “stop the Israeli aggression and end the occupation to protect our people” during the Joint Arab-Islamic Extraordinary Summit in Riyadh on Saturday.

Saudi Arabia hosted the summit, which brought together leaders from the Islamic and Arab worlds to discuss the worsening situation in Gaza.

In his opening remarks, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said that “we are facing a humanitarian catastrophe that testifies to the failure of the (UN) Security Council and the international community to put an end to the flagrant Israeli violations of international laws and norms and international humanitarian law.”

The crown prince added that this poses a threat to international security and stability, and that all leaders must unite to take effective action to confront the situation."

That conference included Iran’s President Raisi who said: The only solution is ‘a Palestinian state from the river to the sea’

"Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi tells a summit of Arab and Muslim leaders on Israel’s war with Hamas that the only solution to the conflict is a Palestinian state.

“The only solution for this conflict is the resistance continuing against the Israeli oppression until the establishment of the Palestinian state from the river to the sea,” he says, echoing protest chants seen as calling for the destruction of Israel.

Raisi calls on those present to take a clear stand and choose what side they are on.

“We want to take a historic and decisive decision regarding what is happening in the Palestinian territories. Killing civilians and bombing hospitals are manifestations of Israeli crimes in Gaza. Today, everyone must decide which side they stand on,” he says, calling to arm the Palestinians.

He also calls for sanctions and an energy boycott against Israel, for charges to be brought against Israel and the US at the Hague, and for international inspectors at Israel’s nuclear facilities."

Yet, there's a good report from JNS. Surprise, surprise it was not covered by the Arab News report. Saudis help block anti-Israel measures at Arab summit - Riyadh joins other moderate Arab states in rejecting a call to isolate the Jewish state over its war against Hamas.

As reported by JNS: "Saudi Arabia on Saturday helped to block a bid by Arab and Muslim countries to militarily and economically isolate Israel, according to Israeli media reports."

October 31, 2023: From The Council on Foreign Relations... What is Hamas?


October 11, 2023: This is a critical read because the impossible trap is now laid, Egypt won't help, their real message is... Israel make your bricks with no straw, there's no safety in Egypt.


October 8, 2023: Yesterday was a horrific Sabbath in the 7th Biblical month of Tishre. It was Shemini Atzeret in Israel, the 8th and last day of Tabernacles aka Sukkot noted in Leviticus 23:39. Shemini Atzeret, the eight day is supposed to be a celebration of God's Word. Instead, nightmare news came in from Israel that sounds like 2023 is 1933 all over again!

May God help Israel. It's as if the headlines are straight out of Zechariah 9:1-8 that's also noted in Amos 1:6-8, Zephaniah 2 and Lamentations 2:21-22.

The IDF will respond in a defensive attack, they have to. It's eerie, but there's a repsonse to evil mentioned in the "War Scroll" that was found in a cave in Qumran in 1947. It's not Scripture, but the beginning of that old scroll says…

"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 Amalekites, Philistia and the troops of the Kittim of Asshur.

Supporting them are those who have violated the covenant."

When we look to Scripture, Zechariah's prophetic warnings look to track to the 7th month Fast of Gedalia mentioned in Zechariah 8:18. That fast is observed from dawn until dusk and in other reports, the terrorist's credit their attack to Jews on the Temple Mount calling their presence the The Al-Aqsa Flood.

In the Bible, Gedaliah had been warned of his guest's murderous intent, but refused to believe his informants, thinking their reports mere slander. The Hebrew Bible does not specify on which day of the seventh month a man named Ishmael murdered Gedaliah, together with most of the Jews who had joined him. But, Jeremiah chapter 41 says it was Ishmael, a traitor from within, the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama. Ishmael also killed all the Judeans who were with Gedaliah.

How could Israel's Mossad elite miss the Hamas attack plot and not see the day long Shemini Atzeret terror horror coming? We may never know, perhaps they were fooled just like Gedaliah.


In an unprecedented surprise attack, the militant Hamas rulers of Gaza sent dozens of fighters into Israel by land, sea and air. Hundreds of Israelis and Palestinians are reported dead between the attack and Israel’s retaliatory airstrikes on Gaza cities. John Yang speaks with special correspondent Nurit Ben for the latest developments."

We’ve been seeing horrific terror events like this gearing up since 1917 in the dark Spirit of Amalek, a grandson of Esau. Amalek's mother was a Horite. The Amalekites were the sworn enemy nation of the Israelites. Amalek means "dweller in a valley" and the Amalekites were the first marauders in Israel territory to viciously attack and murder Jewish people after the Exodus from Egypt. They are the reason Moses wrote this truth: “The LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:16

The crazy thing is that there is a sequence of evil with connections to the Moedim Feasts of The LORD timelines:

1948… Birth of the nation in Spring Feast timeline. Two days before Omer day count 40, surrounding Arab nations attacked the tiny reborn nation. Then, the Six Day War ended on a Sabbath between the Spring and Fall Feasts. Next, the Yom Kippur War horror 50 years ago also started on a Sabbath. It was October 6, 1973. Now this horror has happened on Shmini Atzeret i.e. the 8th day close of the week of Sukkot (Tabernacles) on the very special Sabbath of October 7, 2023.

A friend called me when he heard the news. One reason is that I'd shared that Torah portions are in place each week, unchanged for thousands of years for a God reason. He asked: does the Torah portion this past week point to anything that’s happening? We’d discussed for years that the Bible is not old just because it’s connected to events in history, the Torah points to the present and future.
past,

It is timeless and alive today and the future becuase not one jot or tittle has passed just like Jesus said at the Sermon on the Mount excerpt in Matthew 5 and repeated in Luke 16:17. I asked him to go back and read the Scripture portion for the past week and pointed out the Saturday Sabbath reading has included Joshua 1:1-18 for thousands of years at Sukkot. It is read by faithful Jewish people in synagogues, but sadly very few Christians today open the readings in Sunday church, despite the fact that Jesus the Jew read the word of God every Sabbath in synagogues as was His custom. See Luke 4:16 for the proof text.

We discussed key points in the the Haftarah. This time it includes the Joshua Scripture portion which calls for prophecy to be fulfilled and includes the words "the Mediterranean where the sun sets on the land of Israel." Other key words that jump out include:

"All the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory.

I will not leave you or forsake you.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for Y-H-W-H your Elohim is with you wherever you go.

All the men of valor among you shall pass over armed before your brothers and shall help them, until Y-H-W-H gives rest to your brothers as he has to you, and they also take possession of the land that Y-H-W-H your Elohim is giving them."

Could it be any clearer?

We also reviewed another amazing thing found in today's Torah portion in Deuteronomy 33:29:

"Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD, Who is the shield of your help And the sword of your majesty! So your enemies will cringe before you, And you will tread upon their high places."

Then there's the Haftorah portion of Joshua 1 that's coming to focus next week. It has the deed to that coastland with a promise.

Check it out (Joshua 1), the thing to know is that back in Joshua's day Israel never took Gaza's coast, they left it alone even though it was deeded to Judah. Look at most any 12 tribe map and you will see that, but in Joshua we can all read…

"Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for The LORD your GOD is with you wherever you go. All the men of valor among you shall pass over “armed” before your brothers and shall help them, until The LORD gives rest to your brothers as he has to you, and they also take possession of the land that The LORD your God is giving them."

Gaza was reserved for the latter days. I just had to check the following week’s Torah portion. It's about Noah. By the way, if you don't know it, that story is where the Hebrew word חמס Hamas aka "violence" first shows up in the Bible. As you read it, take notice the word "now" does not say "then". Coincidence? It’s in Genesis 6:11 "Now the earth [eretz land] was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence [Hamas]."

Corrupt violence met destruction with a flood in Noah’s day.

It will again when Israeli tanks move into Hamas land, and in the end perhaps the IDF will flood seawater into Hamas' tunnels to take out the terrorists that labeled their day of terror: "Operation Al-Aqsa Storm." That word Al-Aqsa is the name of the Islamic mosque atop the Temple Mount.

Zechariah declared the end game thousands of years ago:

"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

Whether you believe the Bible or not now, you must. It's time to believe. It's time to pray!! Pray for the impossible miracle, pray that Hamas will surrender, lay down their weapons and thier adopted Amalek hatred. Even though they put Hamas in charge, pray for Gaza's civilians too , the huamn shields of Hamas. Pray for IDF soldier safety. Last but not least, pray for the hostages and pray for their families. Pray for The LORD to change hearts. If you will, join me to pray for the Jewish people to call out to The LORD and pray for the shalom peace of Jerusalem that is to come. Pray for Messiah to return quickly.

Sadly and horrifically, some nations as always will turn against Israel as she defends her people and sovereign land given to them by The LORD God of all Israel. Almighty God has given the planet that opposes Israel and seeks to divide or destroy many warnings about His heritage land and people, becuase He has chosen to prepare the land and the people for the return of Messiah High Priest and King. I fear few will listen, but I will continue to pray too, that America will open her eyes to this word from The LORD that in the end, He will accomplish:

"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

February 19, 2023: It's Shevat again and according to Ned Price, Secretary of State Antony Blinken ignored Shabbat on Shevat 27 when he interrupted The LORD's day of rest and phoned Netanyahu telling him its time to divide Israel up for peace. Once again, hearts are like the Pharaoh's are hardened against God's gospel plans.

According the ArabNews... WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke on Saturday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and separately with Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas, reaffirming Washington's support for a “two-state solution” in the region and asking the two to “restore calm.”

February 16, 2023: Well it's Shevat 26 again today and it's been 13 years since my first post on Zechariah's Shevat 24 vision that begins at Zechariah 1:7 and continues on to Zechariah 6:15.

If you have followed this comentary, it's like a Shevat vortex against Israel and you'll know sadly it's by no surprise at all today that the Associated Press just announced that they have just obtained a copy of another draft resolution from behind a closed door at the United Nations which according to the AP was "circulated by the United Arab Emirates, the Arab representative on the council, would reaffirm the Security Council’s “unwavering commitment” to a two-state solution."

Principal Deputy Spokesman, Vedant Patel verified that draft resolution today at the February 16th (Shevat 26) US Department of State press press briefing in Washington.

Excerpt - "QUESTION: Can we go on to the Israel and Palestine issue?

MR PATEL: Yeah. Sure, Shaun.

QUESTION: The – at the UN, as you probably know, there’s a draft resolution that would call on Israel to immediately and completely cease settlement activities. The administration and the State Department has been critical of the latest settlement moves. Does the U.S. have a stance on this resolution?

MR PATEL: Thanks, Shaun. We remain focused on supporting the conditions necessary to advance the prospects for a negotiated two-state solution between the Israelis and Palestinians which is – our belief is the only path to a sustainable end to the conflict, and we continue to engage with all parties on this. The introduction of this resolution is unhelpful in supporting the conditions necessary to advance negotiations for a two-state solution. We are aware of the introduction, and we’re coordinating closely with our partners in New York on next steps.

QUESTION: When you say unhelpful, does that mean that the U.S. is ready to veto it? Is it looking to change it before it gets to that point, or not be introduced at all?

MR PATEL: I’m not going to get ahead of the process, Shaun. We are coordinating closely with our partners in New York and are assessing our next steps. But when I say that it is unhelpful, we have been clear as it relates to both the Israelis and the Palestinians – and you saw us be very clear about our stance on this after the events of Sunday, on Monday from this podium about the – about actions, including settlement activity could undermine a two-state solution and also further incite tensions. These are the kinds of things that would do the opposite of that."

October 20, 2022: Russia is threatening nuclear weapon use while bombing the citizens of Ukraine with Iranian-made kamikaze drones in an alliance that threatens civilization as NATO kicked off their own nuclear drills amid tensions with Russia. North Korea launched an intercontinental rocket threat over Japan and Islamic militant extremists continue to slaughter Christians in Central Africa on a daily basis.

As far as I know the U.N. Human Rights Council has sat silent while the Islamic Republic of Iran's morality police silence women's rights and those that seek freedom and justice with repression and deadly violence.

What does the United Nations do about that? 

They forgot it and the UN once again has as usual focused it's media power on condemning Israel with their 3-person inquisition committee comprised of Navi Pillay, Miloon Kothari and Chris Sidoti. 

Their three-person committee was formed after Hamas fired over 4,300 short and mid-range rockets at Israeli civilians and cities in May 2021. 

This straw man "Commission of Inquiry" ignores the fact that Hamas launched their offensive rockets at Israeli Jewish citizens. The commission report completely ignores the fact that in recent weeks and months Palestinian Arab terrorists calling themselves the Lion’s Den have viciously attacked innocent Israeli civilians. 

What happens? Celebrations erupt among those supporting the terrorists as the Palestine Authority budget funds pensions authorized by Mahmoud Abbas for families of radical terrorists killed in action after killing Israelis civilians in their pay for slay cash for kill budget fund. 

The anti-Israel, anti-Jew, anti-Bible defiance is at the "end of the day" playing with a flame from the Pillar of Fire. 

The UN ignores their own charter and predecessor rulings from The League of Nations emanating from the Balfour Declaration. They also ignore the words given to the world by our Creator as if they were old and done away with. 

The so-called committee has a blind eye to warnings found in Genesis 12:3 and Joel 3:1-2. They turn their backs with stiff necks and ignore the Creator's deed right in God's royal land grant, the perpetual international law of planet earth.

Yet, there is a choice, people can let go of anti-Israel hatred and bias, let go of hostility, believe Almighty God, believe the Bible and choose to live in peace.


"New York (20 October 2022) -- There are reasonable grounds to conclude that the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory is now unlawful under international law due to its permanence and the Israeli Government’s de-facto annexation policies, according to the first report to the General Assembly issued today by the United Nations Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and Israel."

July 20, 2022: Putin takes a trip to Tehran right after Biden's visits Israel, so what's the message?

A picture is worth a thousand words: Ukraine war: Putin visits Iran in rare international trip Source BBC

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 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
March 24, 2022: Streamed live from the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Meeting in Dallas. Michelle Bachmann tell it how it is.



March 21, 2022: Monday, Joe Biden mumbled on confused about the truth of leadership in the new world order. 

Solomon knelt and prayed boldly about what we have to do about that when he dedicated the House of God the King. 

When Yeshua started His ministry, He repeated the heart of the message from 2 Chronicles 6:36-42 and told us why, it's not about the world saying, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand."

Pilate was confused too, but the record was set straight: 

"My kingdom is not of this world... For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

March 16, 2022: When Thomas Nides managing director and vice chairman of Morgan Stanley was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on November 2, 2021, replacing David Friedman who had resigned nearly a year earlier, "Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Gilad Erdan congratulated Nides, saying he was sure the new envoy “will further strengthen the special bond between Israel and the U.S.”

I wonder what Gilad Erdan thinks now about Mr. Nides infuriation and his distorted view of what Nides calls a disaster...

“We can’t do stupid things that impede us for a two-state solution,” Nides told the left-wing group Americans for Peace Now during a virtual event on Tuesday. “We can’t have the Israelis doing settlement growth in east Jerusalem or the West Bank. I’m a bit of a nag on this, including the idea of settlement growth – which infuriates me, when they do things – just infuriates the situation, both in east Jerusalem and the West Bank.”

"Nides said he recognizes that “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” but cautioned that “the final status of Jerusalem would have to be decided by the parties.”

According to The Jerusalem Post, "In the interim, his job is to preserve conditions for two states, because “a one-state solution is a disaster for everyone involved.”"

It seems Nides is clueless about the disaster to come in the valley of decision:
“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, and have cast lots for my people..." Joel 3:1-3 
"Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. The LORD roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth quake. But the LORD is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to the people of Israel." Joel 3:14-16
May 7, 2021: MEMRI TV report sourced from Al-Ahd TV (Iraq)


"Palestinian Islamic Jihad Official Ramez Al-Halabi said that the rockets used by the faction to target Tel Aviv have the signature of Iran and Qasem Soleimani on them. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Al-Ahd TV (Iraq) on May 7, 2021.

Al-Halabi said that the axis between Jerusalem and Tehran is a victorious one. He added that faction members were trained by the IRGC and that Iranian money was used to buy weapons for the armed factions in Gaza and Lebanon. Al-Halabi continued to state that every home in Gaza has a picture of Qasem Soleimani, and he said: "They are the ones who support us with weapons, money, and food."

"I am not sorry, I am proud to say that the rockets that are used to pound Tel Aviv have an Iranian signature on them, the signature of Qasem Soleimani. The Kornet missiles that we use to blow up the Israeli tanks – the pride of the Israeli and global defense industry – are the Kornet missiles of Qasem Soleimani and Iran. The guns that we use to shoot at the Israeli enemy... Those who use these guns were trained by our brothers in the IRGC. We say this loud and clear."

1024px-Ned-Price-2016
March 31, 2021: Thanks to Joe Biden, a man named Edward "Ned" Price is now a spokesman for the US State Department. 

Ned says Judea and Samaria has been occupied by Israel since 1967. 

He's forgotten that The Trump administration 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 forgotten Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Israeli settlements in the West Bank do not violate international law on November 23, 2019.

Ned Price also forgot 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) and the undivided land grant gift when he arrived: "The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” (Genesis 12:7).

My question: What price will Price make us all pay?

NED PRICE, DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON
WASHINGTON, DC

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 Biden continues to hit the headlines. 

As we approach Passover this week 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. Three days of darkness enveloped Egypt as Moses demanded freedom for Israel to return to the Promised Land (see Exodus 10:21-23).


"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 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) to terrify the four horns (Zechariah 1) released their threat...


"In a background call with reporters Tuesday, two senior administration officials confirmed North Korea tested a “short-range system” over the weekend, but declined to provide additional details.

The officials downplayed the test as “normal military activity” by North Korea, saying the weapons system was not one that is covered by United Nations sanctions.

“North Korea has a familiar menu of provocations when it wants to send a message to a U.S. administration, ballistic missiles of various range, mobile- and submarine-launched platforms, nuclear and thermonuclear tests. Experts rightly recognized what took place last weekend as falling on the low-end of that spectrum,” one of the officials said."

Can this tied to Amos 3:7-9?

March 22, 2021: Stephen Flatow has something very important to say. He calls Jews to do something, speak out... I say, join in the chorus, Israel always had sojourners by their side.

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

800px-United_States_Mission_to_the_United_Nations_%E2%80%94_Web_banner


"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."

If you've read anything on this commentary that began in Shevat aka February 2010, you know that I've been making a lot of noise as I believe that we are at the verge of a Biblical redline in history, and that once the dividing line is crossed, it will change the trajectory of our nation.

That redline is the Jehoshaphat line described in Joel 3. I also believe our role could well be outlined in Zechariah's vision with a link by the United States' "Quartet" role in brokering an agreement to divide Israel with a Palestinian state.

December 10, 2020: Hanukkah has begun in Israel and today: Israel, Morocco agree to normalize relations in U.S.-brokered deal

"By Paul Goldman and Henry Austin

TEL AVIV — Morocco has become the fourth predominantly Muslim country to normalize relations with Israel in a U.S.-brokered deal.

Hailing it as "historic," President Donald Trump tweeted that the deal, which came after talks conducted by his senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his chief international negotiator, Avi Berkowitz, was "a massive breakthrough for peace in the Middle East."

The U.S. will also recognize Morocco's claim over the disputed Western Sahara region, Trump wrote in a separate tweet.

Morocco's King Mohammed VI agreed in a conversation with Trump that the north African nation would resume diplomatic relations with Israel “and expand economic and cultural cooperation to advance regional stability,” the White House told The Associated Press."

"Now, it has become the fourth country in four months to normalize relations with Israel following the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan. Administration officials have also been trying to bring Saudi Arabia into the grouping."

Sounds good right? But there's a "condition" looming behind the scenes that every watchman should see and pray about... the condition to divide the land. There is a sea change in the Sunni side of the Arab world and there's no goal to minimize that, but frankly that condition is a future problem for the planet.


"Rabat’s palace said Morocco’s king told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday that his support for the Palestinian cause “is constant” and he supports a two-state solution."


"Iran’s supreme leader on Saturday vowed to retaliate with “definitive punishment” after the slaying of the country's leading nuclear scientist, with some officials blaming Israel for the apparent assassination. 

The Israeli government, suspected of assassinating Iranian scientists a decade ago amid tensions over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, has yet to comment on the killing Friday of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. 

The roadside attack, which bore the hallmarks of a carefully planned, military-style ambush, threatens to further escalate tensions between the United States and Iran in the waning days of President Trump’s term and creates new complications for President-elect Joe Biden." 


"Israel put its embassies around the world on high alert on Saturday after Iranian threats of retaliation following the killing of a nuclear scientist near Tehran, N12 news reported on Saturday."


"Iran's most senior nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh has been assassinated near the capital Tehran, the country's defence ministry has confirmed.


Fakhrizadeh died in hospital after an attack in Absard, in Damavand county. Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, has condemned the killing "as an act of state terror".

Western intelligence agencies believe Fakhrizadeh was behind a covert Iranian nuclear weapons programme.

"If Iran ever chose to weaponise (enrichment), Fakhrizadeh would be known as the father of the Iranian bomb," one Western diplomat told Reuters news agency in 2014.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is exclusively for peaceful purposes.

But news of the killing comes amid fresh concern about the increased amount of enriched uranium that the country is producing. Enriched uranium is a vital component for both civil nuclear power generation and military nuclear weapons."


BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The naval forces of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard conducted a massive maneuver, the first of its kind in the waters of the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of ​​Oman, with the participation of 1,000 boats of various kinds.

According to the Fars News Agency, more than 1,000 light, medium and semi- heavy boats took part in the maneuver organized by the naval mobilization of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced on Saturday that Riyadh supports full normalization with Israel, but first, a permanent and complete peace agreement should be approved that guarantees the Palestinians their state with dignity.

He made the remarks in a virtual interview on the sidelines of the G20 Leaders Summit hosted by the kingdom this year."

The two state solution is a cornerstone for achieving a just and comprehensive peace. It should lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as a capital based on the resolutions of international legitimacy..."

September 6, 2020: Serbia, Kosovo normalize economic ties, gesture to Israel 

Another Elul moment in the headlines. 

In Isaiah 41:21-26 God challenged everyone to determine whether he exists and is sovereign over all nations. What is amazing about this is that it shows that with God’s word the end is connected to the past.

We all thought maybe Qatar, Oman, the Sudan or Bahrain, but it was not an Arab nation. Instead, Serbia (Christian) and Kosovo (non-Arab Muslim) now have a connection to Jerusalem.  Serbia will move its embassy to Jerusalem. Also, Kosovo and Serbia signed an economic deal between their former hostile nations. 

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... I pray it's the beginning of the end of a family divide between Issac and Ishmael but I'm afraid it has a hidden condition. Just six months ago the Arab League met in Cairo and condemned the Trump plan for peace and prosperity, now a member seeks peace. I'm afraid it contains a conditional price tag, but I do pray for an end to the family feud.

July 3, 2020: Just speculation, but this Jerusalem Post headline could point toward next Thursday and Zechariah’s phase one prophecy on the 17th Tammuz fast in the 4th Biblical month. May God bless it with joy, gladness and cheer for faithful Judah living again in Judea and Samaria.
Thus says the LORD of Hosts: "The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh, and tenth months shall be for the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts. Therefore love truth and shalom." Zechariah 8:19
The first appearance of the Hebrew letters aleph-men-tav or "emet" אמת (truth) is Genesis 24:27. Truth (Emet) was first spoken by the man that found Rebecca. We also know years later, two children struggled together within her, two nations and two manner of people. They still do and the USA has been marred in by these words requiring a deal be made:

"It is essential that a Palestinian state created under a peace deal be a state that has the tools to succeed and that it is peaceful and secure, rather than a platform for instability and conflict."

June 24, 2020: July 1st is a week away and it will be Tammuz 9 this year.

About 2,500 years ago after a two year siege, Nebuchadnezzar breached the walls of Jerusalem. King Zedekiah was captured and taken to Babylon. But Jeremiah was spared and protected by God, "because you have trusted in Me declares the LORD." (see Jeremiah 39)

Two years ago in May, the US Embassy was moved to Jerusalem just six months after the U.S. recognized the city as the capital of Israel. Now according to AP: "British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Tuesday that Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank would “amount to a breach of international law.”

No matter what Boris thinks or a thousand others declare about annexing with a letter of protest, just a hundred years ago, on April 25, 1920, the San Remo Resolution was adopted as international law. My guess is Boris has lost his British history book. The WWI Allied Powers with Britain front and center agreed with the Bible to grant all the land from the Mediterranean coast to the Jordan River to the land reserved for the Jewish people, but they backed out. Boris, take note, the British Empire fell apart.

That international law is still intact no matter what Boris or any other paid politician says, so debate rages on annexation in Israel that has no meaning in San Remo's international law or the deed in the Bible declared by the Sovereign God of the Universe.

May 22, 2020: Today, is Jerusalem Day, it is the day that celebrates the historic reunification of Jerusalem and Israeli control over the Old City on the 46th day of the Omer count that ended the June 1967 Six-Day War.

But the craftsmen of Iran have a vomited up another regurgitated plan from the dark soul of Hitler that started almost 80 years ago. 

According to an ABC News report from the shadows of so-called supreme leader Sayyid Ali Khamenei. The Ayatollah also posted an excerpt from that speech with his latest unmoderated Tweet.

ABC - Iran leader says Israel a 'cancerous tumor' to be destroyed

"Khamenei spoke to the nation in a 30-minute speech aired on state television, a rare address by the supreme leader as other officials in the past gave the keynote speech. He repeatedly referred to Israel as a “cancer” or “tumor” during the speech, criticizing the U.S. and the West for equipping it with “various kinds of military and non-military tools of power, even with atomic weapons.”

“The Zionist regime is a deadly, cancerous growth and a detriment to this region,” Khamenei said. “It will undoubtedly be uprooted and destroyed.”

"Khamenei also compared Israel to the coronavirus during the speech, while saying his anti-Israeli views were not anti-Semitic.

However, in the days running up to Friday, his office released a cartoon graphic showing smiling Iranian-backed forces, Arabs and two Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem under a headline that included the phrase “the final solution.” Nazi Germany used the phrase “final solution” to describe its plan for the Holocaust, in which its forces killed 6 million Jews in World War II.

The image later was deleted from Khamenei's Twitter account and other places, though it remains on the Farsi-language version of his official website. Israel's Foreign Ministry offered a tweet of its own over the picture, writing: “We have experience with leaders who talk about ‘final solutions,’ and we promise: Not on our watch.”"

If you were to ask me, it this Iran's craftsmen plan may be to use their terror proxy Hezbollah to try to catch Israel off guard in Lebanon so that they can carry out their nuclear Nazi goal, but we all should know what happened to Hitler's plan as it ended in the ground below his hide-a-way compound because he feared Mussolini's last day fate.

May 1, 2020: It's hard for me to believe that July 1, 2020 was selected for the “vision for peace” vote by Israel’s new "unity" government. That's the 9th of Tammuz this year. That makes me question, will their government unity last? I'm say to say... no.

I'm no prophet, but it would be a great thing if Israel moves to annex the Jordan Valley and parts of Judea and Samaria especially if Abbas follows through on his promise to dismantle the PA but the timing is not quite right - just yet.

"Abbas intends to saddle Israel with the administration and care for all civic needs of two million Palestinian denizens of the territory – health, water, economy, jobs etc.

This decision by Abbas (Abu Mazen) translates into action the furious threats of reprisals made by Palestinian leaders since Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu undertook to bring the Jordan Valley and parts of Judea and Samaria under sovereign Rule in keeping with President Donald Trump’s peace plan."

There's Arab opposition in the media, so it will happen right away, the reason, the Arab neighbors must first see the Israeli people for who they are, long lost brothers. 

GCC chief condemns Israeli plans to annex parts of West Bank

"DUBAI: The Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has criticized plans of Israel to annex parts of the West Bank, saying it would violate international law, state-run SPA reported.
Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf was attending a ministerial meeting on Thursday, where a Council of the Arab League resolution was issued to reject Israel’s actions.

He said Israeli annexation “is a grave breach of the Charter and the resolutions of the United Nations and the principles of international law that prohibits the disposal or annexation of occupied territories.”

The resolution also condemned Israel’s “policies and practices” against Palestinian people, including a recent aggression at the Hebron city and the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Al-Hajraf said he supports the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, and the efforts of the international community to resolve the decades-long conflict."

 Netanyahu, Israeli officials meet with US mapping team for West Bank annexation.

"The US members of a committee formed to map out areas of the West Bank that Israel plans to annex as part of the Trump administration’s peace plan met Monday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior Israeli officials as they pressed ahead with the project."

February 5, 2020: The head craftsman of Iran is their Ayatollah. 

It's Shavat and the Ayatollah has published his opposition to the Trump peace proposal on his website saying that Iran will continue to fund Palestinian terrorists. Not only that, he has called for the growth of armed resistance as he called on the Muslim "world" to help the jihad. If he doesn't get that, he will likely move on his own against Israel. He is waiting and planning.

Imam Khamenei described Resistance as being the only way to counter their vicious behavior and said, “What is the remedy? The remedy is bold resistance. The Palestinian nation, personages and organizations should force out the Zionists and the U.S. with their selfless Jihad. This is the only effective solution. All the Muslim world should also help and support the Palestinians.”

His Eminence further added, “Of course, I believe that the Palestinian armed organizations are going to resist; they will continue the resistance. The solution is resistance.”

Pointing to the active role of other Resistance groups in West Asia, the Leader of the Revolution maintained, “The resistance is not exclusive to the Palestinians in the West Asian region today. The resistance exists in a wider circle beyond Palestine, and will continue to grow day by day, by God’s grace.”

Imam Khamenei reiterated Iran’s long-standing support for the Palestinian cause and said, “We, the system of the Islamic Republic, consider it to be our duty to support the Palestinian resistance groups. We are going to support them, as much as we can and with all the means at our disposal.”

February 3, 2020: The Jordan Times reports... Pan-Islamic body OIC rejects Trump's Middle East plan

"JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia — The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on Monday rejected US President Donald Trump's peace plan for the Middle East, calling on its 57 member states not to help implement it.

The pan-Islamic body, which represents more than 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, "rejects this US-Israeli plan as it does not meet the minimum aspirations and legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and contradicts the terms of reference of the peace process", it said in a statement.

A meeting of foreign ministers at OIC headquarters in the Saudi city of Jeddah called on "all member states not [to] deal with this plan or cooperate with the US administration efforts to enforce it in any way or form"."

Oh by the way, the OIC is headed by Secretary General Yousef Bin Ahmad Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Othaimeen. According to his online bio, he holds two degrees from the USA, a PhD in Political Sociology from the American University in Washington DC (1986) and a MA in Political Sociology, Ohio (1982).

February 1, 2020: No real surprise today in Cairo, just as expected...  Arab League rejects Trump's Israeli-Palestinian peace plan

52226120_303

"The Arab League has rejected a Middle East peace plan put forward by US President Donald Trump. It said the plan would not lead to a just deal for both sides.

Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo, Egypt to discuss US President Donald Trump's plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which was formally announced last week, have rejected the proposal.

In a communique, the Arab League said it would not cooperate with the US to execute the plan because it "does not meet the minimum rights and aspirations of Palestinian people."

The pan-Arab bloc also said Israel should not implement the initiative by force.

The meeting at the Arab League headquarters came at the request of the Palestinians.

"The plan leads to a status that amounts to a one-state situation that comprises two classes of citizens, that is apartheid, in which the Palestinians will be second-class citizens, deprived of the basic rights of citizenship," Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said in Cairo."

Palestinian Authority cuts ties with Israel, United States

"Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday he has cut ties with the United States and Israel as Arabs rejected the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan."

This video report is from Israel as Hamas gives their response with rockets.


Oddly, I wonder if Arab Israeli residents will oppose the peace plan fearing they will be ruled by a Palestinian State that doesn't even have a duly elected ruler? 

Don't get me wrong, Mahmoud Abbas was elected President of the Palestinian National Authority. That happened 15 years ago, but his four-year stint in politics ended in 2009, yet he remains. How did that happen? 

The last Palestinian Legislative Council votes were held in 2006 and since that time, the un-sovereign state has no held democratic elections.

Think about that.

January 28, 2020 aka Shevat 2: Will the red line of Joel 3 be breached by a new dividing line?

I may have it all wrong but the Trump peace plan looks wonderful, but I am concerned it may unwittingly seek to re-draw the UN's green lines boundaries and create a great divide called a Palestinian State. 

Despite all the glee, that's what the copy of the plan that has been released looks like. The Whitehouse plan has been titled Peace to Prosperity.

I hated to see it but the U.S. plan declares an economic outline for a Palestinian State with a condition stating: 

"It is essential that a Palestinian state created under a peace deal be a state that has the tools to succeed and that it is peaceful and secure, rather than a platform for instability and conflict."

Section 17 of the outline mentions that 10 times, yet the plan recommends the city of Jerusalem should remain the sovereign, undivided capital of Israel and that its division should be avoided calling the division of Jerusalem a grave mistake. The plan also calls for the existing security wall in East Jerusalem to remain in place as a border line between the proposed capital of the State of Palestine to be located in Kafr Aqab, Shuafat and Abu Dis.

Outside Jerusalem, the plan calls for more land to formally come under Israeli sovereignty. Perhaps it is another step in the right direction, but any compromise regarding God's land covenant is an admission that the lie of so-called occupation and settlement is true and that God's plan can be usurped by a political prosperity business plan. That compromise dooms the plan to failure and God will act judiciously against the plan's objectives, no matter how well intended to chaos. The fall of the British Empire serve and the example, once great, Britain slammed the land and turned their backs right after they honored the nation with the Balfour Declaration.

As a part of Biblically historic significance, land concessions would compromise Jewish communities with intifada and jihadist attacks in Judea and Samaria like the arrows of the Philistines.

As Netanyahu truthfully stated during Mike Pompeo's latest visit to Israel: "There was no Arab state here, there was not a nationality or state for the Arabs. No one built a different home here.

Bottomline, one hundred years ago in the Mandate written in Versailles, there was no one in the world who did not recognize the right of the Jews to live in their homeland including Judea and Samaria."

Netanyahu is right. History proves it.

The prosperity plan is available so anyone can download it and you should. Not only that you should read it.

I have not studied in great depth just yet, but I have read much of it and my initial impression is that the infrastructure economics are well written and a lot of careful thought has gone into that part of the plan.

But, the biggest issue at hand is land sovereignty for Israel. That has been ignored to a large degree because the plan has a condition. The prosperity plan also makes an assumption that reasonable, honorable and trustworthy men will lead the Arab Muslims re-labeled as Palestinians toward prosperity, peace and security.

So, I have a serious question...

Who and where are these caring leaders in the PA?

THIS IS CRITICAL: the prosperity plan completely ignores the resolution of Article 9 of the Palestinian National Charter. A charter that since its inception, has called for “armed struggle.” 

The new plan also ignores the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the anti-Semitism that spews forth from the PA's kinder-garden, grade school and high school education system run by the UN that in many ways teaches duty and reward for the jihadist objectives of Hamas (a U.S. designated terrorist organization).

The facts on the ground are that the PA rewards pensions to the families of those that seek jihad as a pathway to Islam's heaven by firing rockets from Gaza at Israeli schoolyards and homes. Those without Iranian funded rockets throw rocks, stones and Molotov cocktails, slash out with knives, shoot bullets, fly kites and balloons with fire to burn people and crops.

The graduates at the top of their terror class wear suicide bombs with the goal to go to paradise in suicide as the kill and maime innocent Jews in waves of terror attacks against Israeli civilians and the IDF that defend their people.

Palestinian jihad is terrorism and pure evil that will not be solved by a conditional map or a prosperity budget as the Trump plan proposes. I'm sure the Trump team means well but without knowing it, I think they poked a hole that will unwittingly result in Trump's political demise as the plan seeks to divide Israel and noting good can come from that.

The plan will never see the light of day. Palestinian terrorism is promoted as a religious duty to destroy Israel because it is a Jewish State. The real conflict is not poverty vs prosperity, the battle is spiritual, it's Jacob vs Esau, Amalek vs Israel, Ishmael vs Isaac, Haman vs. Mordecai, Antiochus IV vs the Macabbee Hannukkah heroes because it's the chaos of darkness vs. the light of the world that's morphed into the Koran vs the Bible.

It's been in the headlines since the Exodus and the conflict has passed on from dark hearts from generation to generation for thousands of years fueled behind the scenes by satan and his minions.

Abu Mazen, aka Mahmoud Abbas of the PA has repeatedly stated that he does not want peaceful co-existence with the State of Israel. His political life long goal has been to reject the Balfour Declaration, the 1920 League of Nations Mandate, San Remo and reject the 1937 Peel Commission plan. He even  rejects the 1947 U.N. partition plan and the 2002 Quartet plan. He will do the same with the 2020 Trump plan. 

Not only that, in four short years Abbas will be 84 years old. He has to be ready for retirement, so who is next in line in the PA's political power play?

Today, perhaps the next man standing in the PA terror training line behind Abu Mazen is Mahmoud al-Aloul aka Abu Jihad.

So, who is Mahmoud al-Aloul?

He is known as Abu Jihad, the man appointed by the Egyptian transplant Yasser Arafat assigned to kidnap six (6) Israeli soldiers back in 1983. Abu Jihad got his nickname as he ransomed them for the infamous 4,700 Palestinian prisoner exchange. Is it any wonder that his nick name stuck with him?


Back to some key points in Trump's prosperity plan... it suggests renaming areas adjacent to East Jerusalem and proposes "Al Quds" as the name for the capital of a Palestinian State. There are many problems with that: Al Quds translates into English as "the holy." The only holy city is where Almighty God Y-H-V-H chose it to be and place His name, folks that is Jerusalem, not Al Quds. Read 2 Chronicles 12:13 and open your eyes to Almighty God's voice!

The prosperity plan also proposes what it calls the "West Bank Gaza Tunnel." That tunnel is the wrst idea in the proposal. It will not only divide the land from below, it will gash a hole in it and provide a Hamas rocket pipeline from Gaza to Judea and Samaria. The scheme is to run an underground transit tunnel from the Gaza Strip to so-called Palestinian areas that will divide Judea and Samaria as that area of the Jewish homeland is to be deemed  as permanent Palestinian land known as the West Bank under the Trump plan. It seems as if Trump's team can read. The Hamas Charter, their consititution calls for an end to the Jewish people. It reads just like Adolf Hitler's Nazi manifesto Mein Kampt. 

So, my question is this, why on earth would Hama need another tunnel? Tunnels in Gaza and around Israel provide nothing but horrific terror threats against innocent Israel citizens.

There's another big problem. 

It's with that West Bank name. Judea and Samaria is the heartland of Israel. It's where the mountains that Ezekiel wrote of remain, and it's where the majority of the Bible occurred in real time. It's not the so-called West Bank name created by the media. That's a name better served for about five feet of the Jordan River's real west bank. The river has an east bank too, after all the Jordan River runs north to south along mountain ranges from the Galillee to Judea. 

It's the same river that Jesus was famously baptized in by the John the Baptist. By the way, the truth is John was not some itinerant preacher, his name was Yochanan and he was a Levite prophet. Just like his dad Zacharias, he was a descendant of the priesthood and his wife Elizabeth was a descendant of Aaron. You can read Luke 1:5-24 for the proof text.

The prosperity plan has another problem, it's in frontal conflict with Ezekiel 36:8-12...
"But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to My people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. 
For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built: And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better to you than at your beginnings: and you shall know that I am the LORD. 
Yes, I will cause men to walk upon you, even My people Israel; and they shall possess you, and you shall be their inheritance, and you shall no more here after bereave them of men."
I'm no prophet but if you are like me and beleive the Bible, we must know this 2020 new year plan will bring big problems. Call it judgment if you want, but since the plan proposes giving away two sections of the Negev to be funded like as a land grant for the Palestinians to be developed as residential and high tech manufacturing area along the Egyptian border, political problems are headed Trump's way. The plans ideals are noble, but the Palestinians in Gaza elected a terrorist gang to lead them into the abyss.

Thrump's plan also outlines a land swap for the Jordan Valley and the Jewish communities throughout Judea and Samaria. Here's the problem with both conditions: the Negev is promised to Israel just like Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley. 

Read your Bible. The God of Israel called Abraham to go to the Negev. Abraham’s son Isaac lived there when he met Rebekah. Joshua led the people of Israel to the Negev and the cities there are listed in the history book known as the book of Joshua. Take a note and pay attention. In the Bible, the land in this southern region of Israel is called the “Negev of Judah for a God reason." 

Folks trouble is coming. Stop clapping your hands and praising the plan. Open your Bible!! Men make mistakes and this is a Trump doozie, 2020 will not turn out well for the Donald or for America.

Capture-3

Right now, the plan's map is purposely vague, but what we can see compromises the security of Israeli communities that would remain secluded like jail cells surrounded by Palestinian occupied areas now known as "Area A."

There are big red warning signs along the roads that lead to all Palestinian occupied terror nests in Area A. The signs are there to protect innocent, peaceful Israeli's from Palestinian terrorists seeking to kill Jews in "Area A." 

While not officially defined for what they are, "Area A" means "aggression" just like the days of Saul when Israel was constantly under the threat of attack by the Philistines. "Area A" is where the PA has political and so-called police jurisdiction over the Arabs living there. I do think most Arabs want to live in peace, only a few are militant, but it's the same ages old problem, one rotten apple ruins the whole bushel.

"Area B" is defined as those areas in which Israel and the non-nation PA currently share jurisdiction. 

About 60% of Judea and Samaria is designated as "Area C" where Israeli's have security jurisdiction, but it's not safe at the end of the day.

I have personally met one wonderful Israeli man that told me the story of a vineyard near his farm in which newly planted grape vines were maliciously destroyed in a Palestinian vandalism attack at night just days after thousands of tiny grapevines had been planted in the area.

If the destruction of those tender young innocent plants was the worst case scenario, that's not a complete disaster, but it is not!! Radical Palestinians have a long history of deathly violence inflicted not against seedlings but against Jewish women and children as well as elderly Holocaust survivors for crying out loud.

It's horrific and sad that the Biblical heartland roads leading into "Area A" designations (under complete PA cadministration) are terror zones marked by those big red warning signs. Yet, they exist for very good reason: aggressive anti-Semitic jihadist terrorism embedded in Palestinians. For that reason and others detailed in the Bible, Israel's leaders will have to weigh the grave responsibility one day to apply sovereignty and defend all of Israel against the terrorists that have a charter goal to kill them and steal their land. When that happens, the anti-Semitics on the planet will crawl of of the woodwork like termites and vermin turn against the Jewish people, against Israel, the Bible and the God of Israel. That day the terrorists will have to face the wrath of God, and Israel will have to chice but to shut the lions’ mouths.

Area-A


January 26, 2020: If you read the original post written 10 years ago, you found out like I did that the month of Shevat is a Biblical big deal. As noted in the original post dated February 2010, Zechariah's four horse, four horn and four craftsmen vision was given to the prophet by Abba Father in the month of Shevat. 

That Shevat time is now.

My head is spinning because I just saw the headline below in Arutz Sheva that we are coming up on Shevat once again. It's been 2,500 years since Zechariah's vision, and the coming days just so happen to be in the same month.

So, we have to remember something, Zechariah's vision engaged the most powerful leader of his day. He was the Gentile global leader Darius the Mede. Darius was a friend of Daniel and king of the Chaldean Empire. He came to the office of kingdom rule after the death of Belshazzar, the the Babylonian. 

King Darius was good guy and played a very good part in the book of Daniel and other prophetic books. His impact and legacy with the Jewish people is well documented in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai and of course Zechariah.

You should know his story. Darius appointed 120 leaders across his empire with three administrative heads, and one of them was Daniel. Some left wing political types attempted to set Daniel up for disaster because he refused to stop praying and in the end, Daniel wound up in a lion's den facing certain death but by an amazing miracle of grace Daniel was saved

In Daniel's words... "My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me."


From Arutz Sheva: Trump: 'Deal of the Century' will be unveiled in the coming days

"Trump says Israel-PA peace deal will be unveiled before Prime Netanyahu and Gantz arrive in Washington next Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he will unveil the "Deal of the Century" in the coming days and before Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz arrive in Washington.

Trump added that officials in his administration had briefly spoken to senior Palestinian Authority (PA) officials and will be speaking to them again soon.

"They may react negatively at first, but it is actually positive for them and they have a lot of incentive to do it," Trump told reporters.

"It's a great plan. It's a plan that really would work," he added. “I’d love to be able to do that deal. They say that’s the hardest of all deals."

Earlier on Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence said that Netanyahu and Gantz have both accepted the Trump Administration's invitation to the White House next week to discuss the administration's upcoming Middle East peace plan."

Here's the thing, next Tuesday on the Bible's calendar is Shevat day two and Shevat 1 will be January 27th this year. It's the International Day of Commemoration declared by the UN, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in memory of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

It's the same eight month that Zechariah saw a vision on the 24th day. It was during the 2nd year of the reign of Persian king Darius noted in the original Zecharion Vision commentary.

The timeline of Zechariah's dream was around 520BC. It's now 2020, and Shevat is still front and center 2,500 years later as king Darius connects the ancient books of Zechariah with Haggai, Ezra, Nehemiah and Daniel.

Daniel 9 draws attention to Darius and the chapter connects the 70 years revealed to Jeremiah that must pass before the end of the desolations of Jerusalem. At that time, Daniel records a great prayer of confession and repentance. Daniel mentions the abominations that Jesus reminded His disciples of in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14.

It just so happens Israel celebrated 70 years back in the land in 2018.

The view from the PLO on the peace plan is this: PA: 'Deal of the Century is the 'Fraud of the Century'

"Saeb Erekat, Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, on Saturday blasted the so-called “Deal of the Century”, the US peace initiative which is due to be unveiled next week by US President Donald Trump.

Erekat stated that any attempt, deal or dictate that would deny the fact that Israel is an “occupying force” that took power over the territory of “Palestine” within the 1967 borders, including eastern Jerusalem, would be remembered in history as "the Fraud of the Century."

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!!

Report: What would Israel get, and give, under Trump peace plan?

December 6, 2019:  Divide the land was the US House resolution today. This resolution is a big problem and my prayer is that the House of Congress will see the light that this vote is dark.

Two years ago to the day, the President Trump decided to no longer follow his Presidential predecessors and delay the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. Today, the Congressional House that seeks to impeach him voted on its goal to divide the Holy Land of Israel.

"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 promises. Resolution 326 is in direct opposition to God’s choosing this land to place His Name, so there is a big problem on the horizon.

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 House 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 the House and Senate pass it.

My prayer is that the 100 Senators in our Senate NEVER approve it and I am hopeful in prayer that they will always stand firm with the Bible and that the words upper and lower Congress remain true. When it comes to Israel, we must always take the upper hand.

November 25, 2019: Today, we have more cunning threats from a craftsman of chaos that we have to take seriously, and there will be a lot more saber rattling with military threats over the days, weeks and months to come from IRGC commanders in Iran.

Perhaps General Salami thinks the issues of impeachment and indictment have the U.S. and Israel distracted.

Salami understands the dark sentences of the Koran, the Sira and the Hadiths that contain jihad sayings for radical Muslims to crush the non-Muslim world. Those sayings are what this Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps general is talking about. He believes Muhammad commanded Muslims to spread Islam through jihad and that all Muslims are commanded to take back any land that was formerly under Muslim occupation. 

Take note, most recently, that was Israel when it was occupied by the Ottoman Empire from 1517 to 1917.

Before the Ottomans, Caliph Omar arrived in Israel and accepted the surrender of Jerusalem in 637AD as the Muslim occupation began that remains today. Almost 50 years later, construction began on the Dome of the Rock in 685AD. That was 1,335 years ago. Now you know who "occupies" the Temple Mount and causes an abomination and desolation of prayer there to the God of Israel.

Salami mentions Saudi Arabia because the Muslim people there are Sunni. Salami is a Shi'ite and they have differences that conflict with the Sunni for the past 1,400 years. To learn more check out: What Are the Differences Between Sunni and Shiite Muslims?

News from IsraelDefense: IRGC Commander Threatens to ‘Destroy’ Israel, US, Saudi Arabia

"The commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Hossein Salami threatened to destroy Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States if they cross what he described as Tehran’s red lines.

“We have shown restraint... we have shown patience towards the hostile moves of America, the Zionist regime (Israel) and Saudi Arabia against the Islamic Republic of Iran... but we will destroy them if they cross our red lines,” Salami said in a televised speech on Monday.

The statement comes amid heightened tensions in the region. Last week, the Israeli air force struck dozens of military targets belonging to the IRGC’s Quds Force and the Syrian Armed Forces after four rockets were fired from Syria into northern Israel.

During a tour in the Golan Heights on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Iran was planning additional attacks.

“We are taking all necessary action to prevent Ian’s entrenchment in the region, including the activities needed to thwart deadly weapons transfers from Iran to Syria,” said Netanyahu. “We will work to thwart Iran’s attempt to turn Iraq and Yemen into rocket and missile bases against Israel.”

Netanyahu’s remarks followed those of US Central Command Chief Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, who said on Saturday that Iran was planning new assaults on targets in the region.

“Iran is planning further attacks,” the Israeli PM confirmed. “We will also continue with our plans to thwart this aggression.”

Over the last few months, many Iranian officials warned the US and its allies against further aggression.

IRGC Navy Commander Ali Reza Tangsiri warned early last month that “bitter fate” is in store for any country that encroaches on Iran’s sea border. He also said that the capture of American and British forces who had entered Iran’s territorial waters in the past were only “warnings” to the forces seeking to breach the country’s maritime boundaries.

In September, IRGC Aerospace Force Commander Amirali Hajizadeh said that “everybody should know that all American bases and their aircraft carriers, at a distance of up to 2,000 kilometers around Iran, are within the range of our missiles.”

Also in September, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly that the Gulf region is “on the edge of collapse,” and that “a single blunder can fuel a big fire.”

“We shall not tolerate the provocative intervention of foreigners. We shall respond decisively and strongly to any sort of transgression to and violation of our security and territorial integrity,” warned Rouhani.

In an interview with CNN, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has warned of “all-out war” in the event of US or Saudi military strikes against his country."

It seems the vision in Daniel 8 may be approaching a Persian horizon. If so, these are dangerous times.
"In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce face, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper and do [his pleasure]; and he shall destroy the mighty ones and the holy people. Through his policy he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and in [their] security shall he destroy many: he shall also stand up against the prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand." Daniel 8:23-25 HNV
Take note, Daniel was in Shushan the palace, in the province of Elam; when he saw the vision by the river Ulai. That's in today's far western Iranian province of Khuzestan.

Today's Khuzestan formerly Elam is the major oil-producing region of Iran. Many think the Ulai river is today's Karkheh river. Perhaps, the Shushan palace location is marked by the Ziggurat at Chogha Zanbil that lies approximately 19 miles southeast of Susa. If so, the Ulai may be the nearby Dez River.

November 21, 2019: The day after Benjamin Netanyahu's election rival Benny Gantz failed to form a unity government in Israel, the Trump impeachment hearing rages in Washington DC, and today in Jerusalem: Benjamin Netanyahu charged with bribery, fraud, breach of trust

“The State of Israel v. Benjamin, son of Benzion Netanyahu.”

"That is how the indictment filed for the first time in Israeli history against a sitting prime minister opened, after Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit handed down a harsh and severe charge sheet on Thursday against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The indictment will significantly impact the ongoing efforts to form a coalition before December 11 when the period of 21 days expires. Mandelblit will now ask the Knesset to waive Netanyahu’s immunity, a process that can take 30 days." Jerusalem Post

It's bizarre, but the first sitting President to visit Israel while in office was Richard Nixon in June 1974. Just months after his visit, he resigned to avoid impeachment.

November 19, 2019: What goes around comes around. That's how prophecy works too.

Four times in the Book of Judges we are told that "there was no king in Israel in those days" (see Judges 17:6; Judges 18:1; Judges 19:1 and Judges 21:25).

There was no centralized government and during these periods and they were times of enemy conflict and chaos, but The King is coming and Israel will call for Him to come in the name of The Lord.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!
We bless you from the house of the LORD. Psalm 118:26
Today, the Israeli government is not in place, and the place of the House of God still stands forsaken in prayer by a Mosque and a Muslim shrine that has sat atop the Temple Mount for over a thousand years, but there is a solution, its from Yeshua of Nazareth:
Behold, your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!'” Luke 13:35
Now, as Israel faces the prospect of a third election this year, gridlocked between right and left without a unity government, there is some amazing news following Netanyahu's plan announced September 10th to annex the Jordan Valley that reminds me of the good report of Joshua of the House of Ephraim and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite.

Report from Hamodia: After Pompeo Declaration, Likud Urges Annexation of Jordan Valley.

"YERUSHALAYIM - With the U.S. proclamation that Israeli settlements in Yehudah and Shomron “do not contravene international law,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has given Likud MKs a green light to promote legislation that would impose Israeli sovereignty on the Jordan Valley.

“I was asked by [PM] Netanyahu to promote this legislation and we hope to present a law by next week,” Likud MK Shiran Haskell said Tuesday. “The legislation will be fully supported by the Likud and the prime minister.”

Haskell called on Blue and White to support the legislation. “After the declaration by President Trump, we have a unique opportunity presented [to] us by the American administration. I hope that Blue and White will cooperate on this and not attempt to stifle it,” Haskell said."

I'm looking forward to seeing the Knesset vote next week— as mentioned in the September 15th Prayer Alert, the Jordan Valley annexation plan is not really new, it was Israeli Labor Minister Yigal Allon's plan in 1967. In 2005, the CIA released its February 1969 Confidential Intelligence Memorandum on the Allon Plan.

Pompeo is a true leader as Secretary of State. His announcement is polar opposite of John Kerry's when on December 30, 2013, Kerry was headed to Israel fixed on an Obama administration plan to implement a multi-year phased Israeli withdrawal from the Jordan Valley opposing the Knesset's grapple with the annexation plan. Today, that six-year old Prayer Alert was answered.

It’s amazing how many positive things have happened in the month of November for Israel.

On November 2, 1917 the British Government declared the establishment in Palestine as a national home for the Jewish people and that was adopted by the League of Nations as the British Mandate. The mandate legally separated the land from the occupation of the Ottoman Empire under Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations.  

Thirty years later in 1947, the successor to the League of Nations, the UN voted with Resolution 181 to end Britain's control over the land on November 29th and that’s next Friday.

Last year, Israel celebrated its 70th anniversary of rebirth in ancient Judea and the year before, Jerusalem celebrated its 50th. Will 2020 mark the annexation (rebirth) of key parts of the land allotments of Naphtali, Issachar and Manasseh east of the Jordan River?

Whether 2020 is the time or not, this time is tied to continued restoration and Isaiah 9:1:
"But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations."
We have to be dutiful watchmen and prayer warriors because there will be storm clouds, a sea of trouble and more birth pains before Messiah returns to restore the Kingdom as declared by the prophet Zechariah.
israel-tribes

Will the Knesset vote with Likud's Jordan Valley goal without unity leadership?

I do not know, it seems unlikely. But, if the vote takes place next week, I do know the Torah portion next week is Toldot and we can all read that Rebecca conceives. Her pregnancy is prophetically difficult as the two "children struggle inside her" and God tells her that "there are two nations in your womb," and that the younger will prevail over the elder. Those babies were Jacob and Esau.

Years later, after Jacob and Esau were born, their father Isaac blessed Jacob when Rebecca intervened on Jacob's behalf with these words:
“And may the Lord give you the dew of the heavens and the fatness of the earth and an abundance of corn and wine. Nations shall serve you and kingdoms shall bow down to you; you shall be a master over your brothers, and your mother's sons shall bow down to you. Those who curse you shall be cursed, and those who bless you shall be blessed!”
Issac gave Jacob "the blessing of Abraham." In the next Torah portion, at Bethel ("House of God") Almighty God confirms Isaac's blessing for Jacob promising "I am with you":
"I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. The land on which you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed. And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. And in you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 
And, behold, I am with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back into this land; for I will not leave you, until I have done that of which I have spoken to you." Genesis 28:13-15
Today, many identify Bethel with the so-called West Bank village of Beitin and its located just three miles from Ramallah. You can read about Bethel in Genesis, in Joshua, the two books of Judges, Samuel and the books of Kings as well as Ezra, Nehemiah, Amos, Hosea and Jeremiah.

In 1883, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey described Ramallah as a "large Christian village." In 1948, Christians were still the majority of the population. In 1967, half of the citizens of Ramallah were Christian. Today, the Palestinian National Authority is headquartered in Ramallah and the Arab Christians are down to 25% of the population there.

Do you think this is important?

Jacob lived in fear of Esau's revenge on Isaac's blessing but looking back, Rebecca knew God's heart because The Lord had warned her before her birth pains. Years later, by dressing Jacob like Esau, she demonstrated that everyone, even those of us who act like Esau, can receive the Heavenly Father's blessing if we repent.

Rebecca did nothing wrong, she had to know that Esau had sold his birthright to Jacob. Rebecca also knew that Esau had married two Hittite women from Canaan (Genesis 26:34-35). Isaac even warned his son Jacob, don't be like your brother, "Don't marry a Canaanite woman."

November 18, 2019: Back in 2010, I began this post and called it Zechariah's Vision and "The Quartet" with the goal to share a latter day possibility of Zechariah's dream. Since that original post, I have repeatedly added headlines with perspectives as Prayer Alerts and today many of those prayers have been answered.

My posts began after I saw the politically distracted views and opinions of former president Jimmy Carter that Judea and Samaria (Yehuda and Shomron) were an "occupied territory" he called the West Bank and that Jewish settlement in their own homeland was a violation of international law back in 1978.

The Carter Administration rejected the international ruling of law after World War I that came from the Supreme Allied Power. That ruling stated that Israel has legal rights to Judea, Samaria and all of Jerusalem that the Allied Powers had liberated from the 400 year-long occupation of the renegade Ottoman Turk. The ruling is International Law known as “Res Judicada” (matters already judged) and it was declared at the San Remo, Italy Conference on April 24, 1920.

San Remo established international law that remains in keeping with the Balfour Declaration’s principles. The  international law declared at San Remo was re-validated by the Palestine Mandate in 1922.

British%2BMandate

That day in San Remo in 1920, was none other than the 6th of Iyar and it was the 21st day of counting the Omer. Twenty eight years later on the 5th of Iyar, it was the 20th day of counting the Omer when David Ben Gurion declared the nation born in a day promised in Isaiah 66:8. Ben Gurion properly rejected the Roman name "Palestine" and declared the proper Biblical name "Israel."


"Who has heard such a thing?
Who has seen such things?
Shall a land be born in one day?"


Ben Gurion was the first to sign its declaration of independence under a picture of Theodor Herzl completing the United Nations General Assembly resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State on November 29, 1947. It was the May 14, 1948 and get this: who has heard such a thing?

One day separated the rule of law that had been declared some 2,600 years earlier ( by Isaiah 66:8) as Jews celebrated the resurrection re-birth of their nation. Many celebration broke out after President Truman declared the United States had recognized the Jewish State in a press release that was followed by a Department of State telegram to all U.S. Diplomates and Consulates.

Today, the 40 year-old Washington opinion passed down from the Carter administration has been agreed by every presidential generation except Ronald Reagan's. Now, it has now been officially trumped with the rule of San Remo by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Here's the thing, in 1920 the U.S. was in full agreement, and today Pompeo did not need a telegram to validate the rule of international law.

In one way, it took 99 years, in another it took just over 40. Reminds me of the Exodus... after all, it wasn't until Israel and the sojourners with them arrived at Kadesh in the desert of Paran that they were judged to wander 40 years for accepting a bad report when they said to each other, we should choose a leader and go back to Egypt and The LORD asked Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them?"

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 was crafted during the Carter administration, it said that "civilian settlements in those territories is inconsistent with international law."

Pompeo noted 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.

Let's pray the Knesset gives a good report about the Jordan Valley, after all, we must never forget that the men who were responsible for spreading the bad report about the land during the exodus journey never made it to the Jordan River or into the Promised Land.

November 16, 2019: As Israel's coalition government in Jerusalem remains in election exile this week appears prophetic, but it's not the rockets fired from Gaza with the intent to kill innocent Jewish civilians and Israeli response, there may be more to it.


Something else may reveal the mystery of what God "made known to king Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days" in his first dream that eventually led to the king's attempt to wipe out Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the king's overheated furnace.

That furnace fire was used by God. That's how He works, Almighty God uses evil to accomplish His plan for good. He did that thousands of years ago in Babylon, He did in 1948 following the Holocaust and He will continue to do it until dark hearts no longer have a plan. The final message from Ezekiel 18:32 is critical: “For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!”

Long ago, King Nebuchadnezzar's furnace was so hot it killed the king's men that led the three exiles of Judah to the fiery furnace, but it was the miracle salvation of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego by the appearance of the "one" Nebuchadnezzar called "a son of God" that walked in the flames with them that makes this one of the most famous stories in the Bible because they refused to "serve and worship any god except the real God.

Rocket fire from Gaza is not the only story... This week as hundreds of rockets were fired by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror militia, we have to remember that months ago Iran gave the threat of a more devastating attack to come from its Hezbollah proxy in Lebanon, a country that has been overwhelmed in citizen protests much like those sweeping across the heart of Iran.

Don't discount the PIJ terror militia directed by Iranian commanders with Hamas and don't underestimate Iran's Persian proxy engagement in Iraq. Unrest is sweeping across ancient Babylon.

Rebellion extends beyond Iraq. Mass protests are on the rise globally as people are taking to the streets. It's rampant in Hong Kong, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, Spain, France, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Haiti and Venezuela and even New Zealand and it’s crazy what’s happening in politics in Israel, the UK and the U.S.

The most divisive, polarized elections in recent history are on the horizon. Nothing like this I know of has happened in recent memory.

The UK election is coming up and in Iraq, chaos is their “October Revolution.” Lebanon up in arms with protests too. When Yeshua said: “kingdom against kingdom” the Greek word translation for kingdom is "basileia" and it means “royal power, kingship, dominion, rule, reign.”

Jesus prophesied from Isaiah 19:2: “Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.”

That means we have a problem.

When I think of Donald, Boris and Benjamin I think of this message:

“...how can someone enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house.” (Jesus c. 30AD)

There's more, Iran's craftsmen of chaos sponsor PIJ terrorism and they are spewing more lies this weekend saying Iran is protecting regional nations against terrorism and that their goal to wipe Israel off the map does not mean what it says. And get this, they invented another chaotic lie, saying the U.S. invented ISIS in a proxy war against Islam much like the lie generated on November 14th: Iran’s Rouhani Accuses U.S. Of Inspiring Protests In Iraq As Death Toll Climbs.

What will be their next lie?

Today, during what looks to be a historic meeting in Tehran, some 250 Iranian Shia clerics and 100 other so-called Sunni scholars from around the Middle East met with a Caliphate-like agenda of unifying Islam's divided kingdom like feet of iron and clay.

sunni_shia_nasr

What has been proposed in Tehran is a marriage proposal between Shi'ite and Sunni. It was proposed by Ali Akbar Velayati, yet it was inscribed over 2,500 years ago in the book of Daniel:
"And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. 
As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay." Daniel 2:42-43
Velayati's proposal will not hold, it's not a marriage just yet. It came at the close of the 12th meeting of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening with the stated goal to unify Shi'ite and Sunni (Persian and Arab) by what Velayati called the "issue of Palestine."

Today is important... for one it's the Sabbath. Not only that, on the Jewish calendar, today is the 18th of Cheshvan, and on this same day in 1938 another dark proposal was made. It was called the The Madagascar Plan:

"Nazi leader Hermann Göring announced that in order to "solve the problem of the Jews," the African island of Madagascar was being considered as a giant ghetto for 4 million European Jews. The plan was seriously considered by Hitler in May 1940, in his discussions with Mussolini and Nazi officials. Hitler's idea was that the Jews would play the role of hostages, as a way to prevent the United States from entering the war. The Madagascar Plan was cancelled due to a British blockade. One year later, it was decided that the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" would mean extermination."

Screen%2BShot%2B2019-11-17%2Bat%2B10
Is Göring linked to Velayati by more than this day on the Jewish calendar?

Hermann Göring created the Gestapo and the least of his crimes is that he's the man that orchestrated the theft of Jewish owned property, valuables and priceless art. Göring was the highest ranking German leader convicted along with the Gestapo of conspiracy, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity at Nuremberg.


Screen%2BShot%2B2019-11-17%2Bat%2B10
Ali Akbar Velayati is senior adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader in international affairs and Secretary General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening. He is on Interpol's most wanted list for aggravated murder and damages and has a standing arrest warrant from Argentina for the 1993 bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (the Jewish Community Center) in Buenos Aires, which resulted in the death of 85 Jewish people and serious injuries to 151.

Fast forward to today and if you look closely at the photo below you'll see Velayati with the Muslim clerics sitting under the green Arabic and Farsi banner. They are not on the phone. The men at the head table are listening to translators because iron and clay do not mix, there were two languages in the room because the men in the room are Persian and Arab.

Will the World Islamic Awakening Assembly leave the video online of Velayati's closing proposal? If it remains, you can watch it for yourself here, but you'll also need a translator if you don't speak Farsi.

Killing of al Baghdadi cannot acquit Daesh creators: Velayati

"TEHRAN – Secretary General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening Ali Akbar Velayati said on Saturday the propaganda campaign surrounding the killing of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, head of the Daesh terrorist group, cannot acquit those who created this group in the first place.

Velayati said that arrogant powers, headed by the U.S., wage proxy wars in the region to reach its goals, provide security for Israel and prevent the growth of Islam as a divine culture for regional nations.

Velayati, also a senior foreign policy advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, added the United States is explicitly seeking to occupy parts of Syria in order to loot its oil, IRNA reported.

Velayati made the remarks during the 12th meeting of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, which was held at the Parsian Azadi Hotel in Tehran.

The meeting was attended by senior officials, religious leaders, and academics.

At the end of the meeting a statement was issued in which it was emphasized that the most important issue of the Muslim world is the issue of Palestine.

The region is at a new stage and all Muslims, regional people and authorities should unify to thwart plots hatched by the enemy, the statement read.

It also called on regional nations to strive to establish security and peace for themselves and future generations."

Just like 1938, today's Tehran proposal was made as the Torah scroll portion Vayera was read.

Vayera means "and He appeared." It is comprised of Genesis 18:1–22:24 and tells the stories of God's appearance to Abraham with two other visitors, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Ishmael's removal from the camp and Abraham's test of faith with the binding of Isaac. It concludes with the good news promise that all nations would be blessed one day as Abraham's descendants because he obeyed God's command.

The ultimate blessing of the Vayera storyline is hidden at first glance. That blessing is the Kingdom of God that will reign after the kindgoms of men fall are gone and its unveiled in the book of Daniel:
"And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.” Daniel 2:44-45
"Oh, LORD, open my eyes..." Psalm 119:18

November 7, 2019: The craftsmen of chaos are hammering out more threats:

Iran injects gas in new centrifuges as atomic deal unravels

"DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran injected uranium gas into centrifuges at its underground Fordo nuclear complex early Thursday, taking its most-significant step away from its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Tehran meanwhile also acknowledged blocking an official from the International Atomic Energy Agency from visiting its nuclear site at Natanz last week, the first known case of a United Nations inspector being blocked amid heightened tensions over its atomic program.

These latest steps put additional pressure on Europe to offer Iran a way to sell its crude oil abroad despite the U.S. sanctions imposed on the country since President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew America from the nuclear deal over a year ago.

The gas injection began after midnight at Fordo, a facility built under a mountain north of the Shiite holy city of Qom, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said. A U.N. official from the IAEA witnessed the injection, it said. The centrifuges ultimately will begin enriching uranium up to 4.5%, which is just beyond the limits of the nuclear deal, but nowhere near weapons-grade levels of 90%."

North Korea, angry about air drills, warns dialogue with US is ‘on the verge of extinction’

"SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea criticized U.S.-South Korean plans to hold joint air exercises next month, warning that hopes for dialogue are “on the verge of extinction.”

The Pentagon confirmed this week that the allies will hold a combined air exercise but would not call it Vigilant Ace, which was canceled last year to facilitate nuclear talks with the North.

The communist state hates all joint military exercises conducted by Seoul and Washington on the peninsula because it considers them rehearsals for an invasion."

September 15, 2019: I'm not sure if this is a political move for Benny Gantz or not. Is it fact or fiction, or is it a preview of sorts of the soon to be proposed Trump Peace Plan?

The Israel election is Wednesday September 17, 2019. Naftali Bennett tweeted about a map on the deal of the century today. that appears to potentially link to the content of another unverified "Deal of the Century" opinion report from Israel. World Israel News translated Bennett's tweet as:

This is the deal of the century that will be drop on us immediately after the elections.

In black: Palestine.

In white lone Israeli islands within an ocean of Palestine. Surrounded 360 degrees by Hamas, Tanzim, PLO.

Hell for every resident of Ariel, Ofra and Kiryat Arba. The end of settlement.

Just right I hit the brakes the plan of the islands in Palestine.

The long shaded blue area to the east shown on Bennett's map shows the Jordan Valley. Just a week ago an annexation plan was announced about the Jordan Valley by Netanyahu on September 10th, six months after the US recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights on March 21st (Purim).

It is true there is nothing is new under the sun. Interestingly, the plan Netanyahu announced to annex the Jordan Valley settlements is not new at all. It was Israeli Labor Minister Yigal Allon's plan back in 1967 after Jerusalem was restored to Israel following the Six Day War.

allonmap1

In 2005, the CIA released its February 1969 Confidential Intelligence Memorandum on the Allon Plan. But more importantly, Bible-history.com reminds us of what happened in the Jordan Valley in Abraham's day:

"Four kings of the east came to Canaan who were united under Chedorlaomer of Elam (the territory of ancient Ur) and made war against the five kings of Canaan. In their conquest of the Jordan Valley they captured Lot as a prisoner of war, and when Abraham heard of it he pursued the four kings and overtook them at Dan and defeated them with the help of the Lord (Genesis 14:1-14), Abraham had assembled an army of 318 men."

Today, is Dan is located at the most northern point of the the area known as the Golan Heights next to Syria.

June 5, 2019: The Trump Peace Plan for peace and security is due to be unveiled soon, and the public does not know its content just yet. I pray it leads to the de-terrorization of Hamas jihad factions in Gaza and in Judea and Samaria. I pray it leads to the continued restoration of the ancient land areas that Almighty God granted to the tribes of Israel and the sojourners with them.

This we do know, today the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports on a warning from Olli Heinonen: Iran 'is six months away from having NUCLEAR WEAPONS' and 'Israelis need to be worried', warns former deputy director general of International Atomic Energy Agency

"The former deputy head of the UN's nuclear watchdog has warned that Iran is within months of developing a nuclear weapon.

Olli Heinonen, who led the International Atomic Energy Agency's security team and served as its deputy director general, said Tehran could arm itself with nukes in six to eight months.

Heinonen added Israel and other Gulf states need to start preparing to face the threat, while criticising the IAEA's handling of the situation.

Heinonen made his remarks in an interview with Israel's Army Radio, a segment of which was published by Israel National News on Wednesday.

'Israelis need to be worried, and the Gulf states also have reason for concern,' he said. 'How will you be able to ensure your security if Iran achieves nuclear abilities?'

Tehran has threatened to restart its nuclear programme after the Trump administration backed out of the nuclear deal signed with the Obama White House.

Iran has given a deadline of July 7 for the remaining partners to the deal - UK, France, China, Russia and Germany - to renegotiate terms, or else it will stop complying."

If you have read the original commentary titled Zechariah's Vision and the Quartet you have seen the "craftsman" warning in Zechariah 1:21 with the figurative horn power of modern Iran's missle arsenals:
“These are the horns which have scattered Judah so that no man lifts up his head; but these 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.”
Iran has given a deadline of July 7, 2019. That day will mark Tammuz 6. The Jewish publication Hamodia tells us this about Tammuz 6 in history:

"In 5552/1792, the Jews of Ostroha were saved during the Russian-Polish war. The kehillah established this day as “Purim Ostroha” to commemorate the miracle.

In 5701/1941, the city of Lvov (Lemberg), Ukraine, was captured by the Nazis during WWII. At the time, more than one hundred thousand Jews lived there. Immediately, the local population assisted the Nazis in conducting a pogrom. In a few days, over five thousand Jews were killed."

Aish.com notes a Netanyahu connection 43 years ago on an another Tammuz 6: "On July 4, 1976, as America was celebrating its bicentennial, Israeli commandos performed a spectacular raid to rescue 100 Jews held hostage at Entebbe airport in Uganda."

"The raid, dubbed Operation Thunderbolt, was subsequently renamed Operation Yonatan -- after Col. Yonatan Netanyahu (brother of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu), the leader of the raid, and the only Israeli soldier killed."

Update May 19, 2019: "WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration will unveil the first phase of its long-awaited blueprint for Mideast peace next month at a conference in the region designed to highlight economic benefits that could be reaped if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved, the White House said Sunday.

The plan, which has been two years in the making, envisions large-scale investment and infrastructure work in the Palestinian territories. But the central political elements remain mostly unknown. And the economic workshop, June 25-26 in Bahrain, will not address the most contentious parts of the conflict: borders, the status of Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees and Israel’s security.

In a joint statement with Bahrain, the White House said the workshop will give government, civil and business leaders a chance to gather support for economic initiatives that could be possible with a peace agreement.

The U.S. wants to ensure security for Israel and economic opportunity to improve the lives of Palestinians. The administration hopes that Arab countries will help bankroll economic incentives, such as infrastructure and industrial projects, to get Palestinians to buy into the plan. But with details of the political aspects of the plan still under wraps, any commitments for economic development won’t be easily attained.

“The Palestinian people, along with all people in the Middle East, deserve a future with dignity and the opportunity to better their lives,” President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, said in a statement Sunday. “Economic progress can only be achieved with a solid economic vision and if the core political issues are resolved.”"

Don't forget 2002, when President George W. Bush said:

"Today, the Palestinian people live in economic stagnation, made worse by official corruption. A Palestinian state will require a vibrant economy, where honest enterprise is encouraged by honest government. The United States, the international donor community and the World Bank stand ready to work with Palestinians on a major project of economic reform and development. The United States, the EU, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund are willing to oversee reforms in Palestinian finances, encouraging transparency and independent auditing.

And the United States, along with our partners in the developed world, will increase our humanitarian assistance to relieve Palestinian suffering. Today, the Palestinian people lack effective courts of law and have no means to defend and vindicate their rights. A Palestinian state will require a system of reliable justice to punish those who prey on the innocent. The United States and members of the international community stand ready to work with Palestinian leaders to establish finance -- establish finance and monitor a truly independent judiciary."

March 22, 2019: It appears as if the United States may be turning away from its Quartet role to divide Israel, but keep your eyes and prayers on Jerusalem as well as Judea and Samaria.

Since his election, President Trump has used Twitter as a presidential podium.

On March 21st 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!"

The Trump Peace Plan is still veiled. Pray it does not have "the condition" to divide in an attempt to consume any of God's covenant promise. When it is released remember this:

THE U.S. PEACE PLAN WILL DIVIDE JERUSALEM - SAUDI REPORTER

"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 worship The LORD.

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

September 27, 2018: Abbas addresses the General Assembly at the UN.

Abbas did not mention the truth.

The truth is that he sanctions pension payments to the families of Palestinian terrorists that attack and murder Jewish men, women and children!!

Instead, he launched a bizarre moronic diatribe as he called on 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 letter was 100 years ago by the way. When will this guy ever get a real job???

Abbas also called for an Arab two-state solution. What is that?

PRAYER ALERT September 26, 2018: It's the third day of Sukkot aka Tabernacles and there is a wake up call from the UN today so 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.”
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.”"

Meanwhile, 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.

PRAYER ALERT July 22, 2018: Jerusalem is not for sale but it appears that it may be a big part of the President's deal.

Like you have may have read many times, don't forget God says men will seek to divide....

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

8730030290982640360no


"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.'"

What Trump may not know is that he is not the supreme real estate manager. He may have just stepped into an earthquake. 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 territorybehold, 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 storm and earthquake and I pray that you feel the ground shaking and the wind blowing because there are some amazing things that we must see.

Last year, the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 that was introduced by Bob Dole was adopted by the Senate and the House without a presidential signature on November 8, 1995 was engaged not by a presidential decree as many give Trump credit, but the fact is that is was the lack of his signature last year on a long standing Presidential six month waiver, the 1995 U.S. law was finally carried out 22 years later.

On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of reunification of Jerusalem by a vote of 90-0. That resolution affirmed the Jerusalem Embassy Act and called upon the President and all U.S. officials to abide by its provisions, so on December 6, 2017, Trump did that and followed the resolution to not sign the waiver. In doing so, he broke the Presidential waiver during a Biblical Jubilee Year.

The decision to no longer delay the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 came 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. Both were Jubilee Years as well.

Is Trump trying to make the deal of a century?

My grave 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 dividing the land. I pray he does not. I pray that he does know the heart of the conflict and the truth of the West Bank and the restoration of Israel is 100% Biblical.

Yeshua-Jesus told His disciples when they asked about the restoration of Israel 2,000 years ago:

“It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority...” (Acts 1:7)

PRAYER ALERT July 7, 2018: Trump administration focuses on Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, with Mideast peace plan stalled

"With President Trump’s promised Middle East peace plan stalled, administration officials are focusing on improving conditions in the impoverished Gaza Strip — a move that could put political pressure on Palestinian leaders to come to the negotiating table.

The larger peace proposal has been stymied by the Palestinian Authority, which would negotiate any settlement but remains incensed at Trump’s decision last year to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. A group of U.S. officials led by Jared Kushner came away from what had appeared to be a crucial trip to the region last month without breaking the impasse.

That has led U.S. officials to consider options for an infusion of development aid into Gaza, a perennial trouble spot that is controlled by Palestinian Authority rival Hamas, in hopes of relieving the humanitarian crisis there.

In doing so, the United States could demonstrate a commitment to the Palestinian people that could make it more difficult for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to continue to rebuff overtures to engage in the peace process."

PRAYER ALERT January 7, 2018: The Bible says all nations that come against Jerusalem have a very 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
Six ministers met in Jeddah, Jordan today to come against Jerusalem. They were from from Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and they were joined by the Palestinian representatives.

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 6, 2017: There has been answers to the many prayer alerts posted her over the last 7 years regarding "The Quartet." Today, we have another answered prayer:

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, a paradigm shift which recommended the creation of independent Jewish and Arab states and international status for the city of Jerusalem. 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.

recognition-press-release-l

Today is another paradigm shift, another wake up call to remind us of the 70 years of exile that Cyrus ended. But, we may 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 (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 purposes for Israel and 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 restoration year with Biblical and historic focus on restoring God's promised land as He told the prophets He would do. It proves that the Old Testament is not old, that it's never been done away with. Yet, 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... the Bible.

Unnoticed, eight months ago on April 6, 2017, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation recognized West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

It seems no one raised an eyebrow. 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 at the Kotel (Western Wall) in June 2012 before Trump arrived in May five years later.

You should ask, why Putin was there?


"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 with Putin in Jerusalem.

So, is the first sitting President in American history to visit the Western Wall where he placed a note in the crevice then he placed his hand on the wall. He has made a proclamation and it includes moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

The thing is, nothing in the President's statement addresses boundaries or dividing the city between East and West with the U.S. commitment to move its Embassy, nor does it mention future concessions. Unlike Putin nothing hints that he came to pray for the Temple to be built again.

Jerusalem is not a bargaining chip, not even East Jerusalem.

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 in Washington. The President has made it clear from his foreign policy statement on Jerusalem:

"Jerusalem is today, and must remain, a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross, and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque."

The President has called on the status quo on the Temple Mount to be maintained. By the way, that means no prayer for Jews or Christians there.


PRAYER ALERT October 13, 2017 Transcript: Trump's Remarks On Iran Nuclear Deal

Note the KEY reference to US Embassy attacks and other Iranian proxy attacks.


PRAYER ALERT October 2, 2017 A North Korean ship was seized off Egypt with a huge cache of weapons destined for a surprising buyer

"A U.N. investigation uncovered a complex arrangement in which Egyptian business executives ordered millions of dollars worth of North Korean rockets for the country’s military while also taking pains to keep the transaction hidden, according to U.S. officials and Western diplomats familiar with the findings. The incident, many details of which were never publicly revealed, prompted the latest in a series of intense, if private, U.S. complaints over Egyptian efforts to obtain banned military hardware from Pyongyang, the officials said.

It also shed light on a little-understood global arms trade that has become an increasingly vital financial lifeline for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the wake of unprecedented economic sanctions.

A statement from the Egyptian Embassy in Washington pointed to Egypt’s “transparency” and cooperation with U.N. officials in finding and destroying the contraband.

“Egypt will continue to abide by all Security Council resolutions and will always be in conformity with these resolutions as they restrain military purchases from North Korea,” the statement said.

But U.S. officials confirmed that delivery of the rockets was foiled only when U.S. intelligence agencies spotted the vessel and alerted Egyptian authorities through diplomatic channels — essentially forcing them to take action — said current and former U.S. officials and diplomats briefed on the events. The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss U.S. and U.N. findings, said the Jie Shun episode was one of a series of clandestine deals that led the Trump administration to freeze or delay nearly $300 million in military aid to Egypt over the summer.

Whether North Korea was ever paid for the estimated $23 million rocket shipment is unclear. But the episode illustrates one of the key challenges faced by world leaders in seeking to change North Korea’s behavior through economic pressure. Even as the United States and its allies pile on the sanctions, Kim continues to quietly reap profits from selling cheap conventional weapons and military hardware to a list of customers and beneficiaries that has at times included Iran, Burma, Cuba, Syria, Eritrea and at least two terrorist groups, as well as key U.S. allies such as Egypt, analysts said."

PRAYER ALERT September 16, 2017: The hammer of the craftsmen of North Korea are recognized by James Woolsey. Former CIA Chief Warns of N. Korea’s Other Nuclear Weapon

"The North Koreans wanted to shove themselves forward and say, “I am not intimidated by any sanctions. Leave me alone. I am a powerful nuclear power.” That’s their message."

PRAYER ALERT September 8, 2017: Word is out that President Trump will purportedly hold a UN meeting with Abbas; Netanyahu during the General Assembly meeting in New York City, perhaps on the trumpet eve of Yom Teruah.

My prayer is that the President does not trump the Quartet's so-called peace plan down the street from 'Lady' Liberty. It's not too late to back away from Holy Fire and out of the Quartet's two state solution to divide Israel and give it to the Palestinian Arabs.

Trumpets Day this year coincides with the UN's International Day of Peace.

Are you kidding me? Paul warned in 1Thessalonians 5:3 "While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape."

Our Father has NO interest EVER in dividing Judea and Samaria, the Golan that was taken after king Og's attack against Moses or Jerusalem and the Temple Mount that was purchased by king David for so-called peace and security.

We must never move a boundary stone (Proverbs 22:28).

Could Irma’s right turn have a connection?

Today we see two storms again… Horrifically, both Atlantic storms Irma and Jose bring back memories of the perfect storm back in 1991, which was actually two storms with roaring wave converged on HW Bush’s North Atlantic vacation home in ’91 at the time of the Madrid Conference when the US led the way to divide Israel for peace leading to the formation of The Quartet with China, Russia and the UN with the single goal of dividing Israel. Will Irma turn out as a double portion?

Reminds me of Yeshua's words to His disciples in the Temple:
"Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all." Luke 17:26-27
Yet there is more coming one day...
"Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all—so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed." Luke 17:28-30
The powers of heaven will be shaken:
“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world.

For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:25-28
PRAYER ALERT August 28, 2017: Four days ago as this headline appeared in Time, Jared Kushner Is Kicking Off a Renewed Push to Restart Middle East Peace Talks representing the "allies" to the agreement to revive the peace plan, he met with in Qatar and Saudi Arabia just as tropical storm Harvey was bearing down on Texas. 

On Thursday the 24th, Kushner arrived in Jerusalem to push the "ultimate deal," Trumps's miss-guided US initiative to divide Israel for peace and the tropical storm became a hurricane. Weather experts warned of catastrophic flooding especially in Houston the home of The Madrid Conference leader President George H.W. Bush. Bush should know a thing or two about storms, his Maine home was hit by 'The Perfect Storm' the day he opened the Madrid Conference on October 30, 1991.

Kushner then headed off to Ramallah to meet with Abbas.

Please pray for Texas.

PRAYER ALERT August 14, 2017: Wow. The headlines this summer have been full of a craftsman's horrific threats of crisis from North Korea. This video is a blessing from South Korea, singing and praying over North Korea and its leader, a man that needs Yeshua’s intervention in a dream…

PRAYER ALERT July 4, 2017: Experts: North Korea’s missile was a ‘real ICBM’ — and a grave milestone “The North Korean missile that soared high above the Sea of Japan on Tuesday was hailed by state-run television as a “shining success.” But to U.S. officials, it was a most unwelcome surprise: a weapon with intercontinental range, delivered years before most Western experts believed such a feat possible. Hours after the apparently successful test, intelligence agencies continued to run calculations to determine precisely how the missile, dubbed the Hwasong-14, performed in its maiden flight. But the consensus among missile experts was that North Korea had achieved a long-sought milestone, demonstrating a capability of striking targets thousands of miles from its coast.”

As North Korea Hails ‘Mega Event,’ Tillerson Says ICBM Test a ‘New Escalation’ of Threat to US, World “North Korea’s testing of an intercontinental ballistic missile “represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Tuesday, calling for global action “to stop a global threat.”” “The launch occurred on the morning of July 4, North Korean time. It’s not the first time the regime has chosen to carry out launches on or around U.S. Independence Day, having done so in 2006 and again in 2009. It also tested a missile on the eve of President Obama’s State of the Union address in 2013.”

PRAYER ALERT June 29, 2017: Zechariah's Vision is the longest post at this website because it is updated with news events focused on the nations and thier leaders that seek to divide the Promised Land of the God of Israel. This month marked the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the Jubilee year of the victory of the Six Day War. Yet, the nations of the world still seek to divide the land with a peace agreement that flies in the face of God's word no matter how well meaning. God's word is the sword of truth so let's go back to Joel 3:2, a foundation of this commentary and review why the nations bring judgment on themselves:
"... 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 3:2
The world powers that have scattered Israel "among the nations" started with Babylon, then Assyria, the Greeks and finally the Romans in in 135 A.D. Importantly, if we take a glance at history we must ask, what happened to these super powers? Judgment. They vanished... why? "they have divided My land." Did you know that, the United States leads the pack today otherwise known as "The Quartet" that includes the European Union, the United Nations and Russia.

This "Quartet” arose 26 years ago from the 1991 Madrid Conference look like "four horns" putting their political pressure on Israel to "divide the land" for peace. Today, the United States continues to lead the way to pressure a divide in the Holy Land as hundreds if not thousands of innocent Jewish men, women and children have and will lose their lives in horrific Palestinian jihad terror attacks. Rockets continue to fly from Gaza like the arrows of Amalek that attcked Israel from behind. Meahwhile, Hezbollah radicals hide their missles among homes and fields across southern Lebanon as they lie in waiting for their chance to attack Israel.

Zechariah noted "four horns" but also warned of "four craftsmen" that cause chaos for "four horns."

As noted in my original Zechariah Vision post in 2010, the nations of Iran, Iraq, Syria and even North Korea look like Zechariah's  "craftsmen" candidates that oppose the four corners of the planet.

These cfour orrupt "craftsmen" nations are diseased with extremist madmen. Some like Iran have insane proxy's like Hama and Hezbollah the Lebanese Shiite splinter group supported by Iran's money and madness. They are all linked in a chain of geopolitical "craftsman" evil and they share the DNA of dark figures like Adolph Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Tse Tung that mirror Caligula, Nero, Genghis Khan, Hadrian, Titus as well as Nebuchadnezzar, Shalmaneser, Sargon and Sennacherib. There are others like them, today their names include Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Bashar al-Assad, Ali Khamenei and Kim Jong-un. The odd duck in the flock is North Korea's Kim Jong-un. Why? The land of the North have nukes like those Iran seeks, but Kim Jong-un has them in hand:

Fox News: Military option for North Korea being prepared for Trump, McMaster says "The Trump administration is considering a wider range of strategies on how to deal with North Korea, including the military option, Trump's national security adviser said Wednesday. “The threat is much more immediate now and so it’s clear that we can’t repeat the same approach – failed approach of the past,” H.R. McMaster, the adviser, said during a security conference with Homeland Security Chief John Kelly."

Newsweek: NORTH KOREA: TRUMP PRESENTED WITH MILITARY OPTION IN CASE OF STRIKE AGAINST U.S. "North Korea has its missile launches in recent months. It has launched 10 missiles in 2017 and is believed to be building a nuclear warhead. "I hardly ever escape a day at the White House without the President asking me about North Korea and how it is that the United States is responding to that threat. It's very much at the top of his mind," CIA Director Mike Pompeo told MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt. Pompeo added that he and Trump discuss North Korea for at least an hour every day. He said the risk North Korea presented was real: "For 20 years, America has whistled past the graveyard, hoping on hope, that North Korea would turn colors and become part of the Western civilization. "They are ever-closer to having the capacity to hold America at risk with a nuclear weapon," Pompeo said. Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations warned lawmakers on Wednesday at the House Foreign Affairs Committee that North Korea’s missile program is probably advancing faster that they predicted, reported CNN. “They are on target to build an ICBM (Inter continental ballistic missile)," she said."

CNN: US military updates Trump's North Korea options "Washington (CNN) Revised US military options for North Korea have been prepared and are ready to be presented to President Donald Trump, two US military officials told CNN. The options, which include a military response, will be presented to the president if Pyongyang conducts an underground nuclear or ballistic missile test that indicates the regime has made significant progress towards developing a weapon that could attack the US, they said. US National Security Adviser HR McMaster also confirmed publicly Wednesday that military options had been prepared."

PRAYER ALERT April 19, 2017: The craftsmen chaos have been noted throughout this commentary. North Korea and Iran continue their chaos.



Iran vows 'Death to Israel' as it unveils its latest missiles...

PRAYER ALERT March 10, 2017: With Purim just two days away, the craftsmen of Iran are raising another Haman-like sword and spear by test firing another missile from their arsenal of weapons in a global provocation. This time it was a cruise missile, but in January the sword was a ballistic missile.

And the craftsmen of North Korea, a major partner in Iran's weapons program continues to test fire their missiles toward Japan as the US warns of ‘overwhelming’ response. All of this comes a week after Iran threatened in Haman fashion that not just some of their missiles are able to hit Israel, but thousands of them. Iran’s Fars News Agency quoted senior Iranian army commander Brigadier General Fereidoun Nouri as saying that all the Israeli government facilities are within their range. He also threatened that if Israel does a “thing” of aggression against them, Iran could fire “several thousands missiles” at Israel and “raze down” the Israeli government “forever.”

PRAYER ALERT January 17, 2017: Led by Sweden's Security Council Council President Olof Skoog, prophecy is before our eyes by the adoption of 2334 recommended as a milestone by the Swedish President following another presentation that 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 as the nations gnash their teeth against Israel. 

If you locate the security Council audio 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 had the audacity to allow the Syrian representative to speak against Israeli despite the mind bending horrors of 400,000 people being killed so far in Syria from civil war ever 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 onsite to see the beautiful farmland and vineyards planted in Israel 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. That mandate was set forth with the purpose of creating a national home for the Jewish people including this area. He never mentions 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 and lies stating Israel has looted the Golan and planted 20 million land mines across the Golan Heights. 

He failed to mention that the protection zones are clearly demarcated zones and that the reality is that some 1.2 million mines were placed there by Syrians during the 1950s and 1960s in the Arava Valley and along the Jordan River. He forgot the Knesset passed the Minefield Clearance Act and the Israel Mine Action Authority began clearing those minefields in 2012. His lies continue saying Israel treats Syrians in its hospitals so they can go back to Syria to terrorize.

PRAYER ALERT January 15, 2017: Paris peace conference agrees on two-state solution in Mideast — but neither Israel nor Palestinians take part

900x506

"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.

 The final statement at the conference called on Israel to withdraw to its 1967 borders, as required by United Nations resolutions, and for both parties to “abstain from unilateral actions” that could jeopardize future negotiations. The lines referred to date to before the Six Day War, when Israel captured the Gaza Strip from Egypt and the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, expanding its borders beyond those drawn up in the 1949 armistice between Israel and its Arab neighbors, lines that Israel rejects."

Despite the mass propaganda, many stand against the lies of deception and confusion at the peace conference today.

Haaretz has obtained Exclusive: Draft of final statement for Paris conference 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."
With Trump and Netanyahu not in the picture, 70 nations stand today in Paris with the goal to afflict Israel with heavy burdens against the Old City, “East Jerusalem” and Judea and Samaria as pain and labor engulfs Damascus, Syria and Mosul, Iraq in the fighting against ISIS for freedom as foretold by Jeremiah:
“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 10, 2017: Kerry to attend Mideast peace conference in Paris "Neither Israel nor the Palestinian leadership will attend the talks on January 15 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."

PRAYER ALERT January 9, 2017: Obama continues to make good on his promises in Cairo on June 4, 2009 with Barack Hussein Obama's words given during his New Beginning Speech in Cairo:

 "I'm also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: Assalaamu alaykum."

"I've come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition." "I also know that Islam has always been a part of America's story." "So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America." "When one nation pursues a nuclear weapon, the risk of nuclear attack rises for all nations."

Craftsmen always need tools and Obama's Final Gift: Uranium Headed To Iran "As AP reports, the move to send Iran the uranium from Russia is supposedly to curry favor with Iran so it will remain committed to the nuclear deal it negotiated with the West: Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact. Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium.

U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said." Russia and the U.S.A. have 14,000 nuclear weapons. Only seven other nations possess them as far as we know, they are: France, China, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea. Pray Iran does not join North Korea in the list as number ten. Perhaps there is no correlation whatsoever but prophetic verses supporting Revelation 17:11-13 may provide a tie to these nuclear powers: "The beast that was, and now is not, is himself an eighth king. He belongs to the other seven and is going into destruction. The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive one hour of authority as kings, along with the beast.

These kings have one purpose: to yield their power and authority to the beast.…" Daniel 7:24 "As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings." Revelation 17:16 "And the ten horns and the beast that you saw will hate the prostitute. They will leave her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and burn her with fire." Revelation 18:10 "In fear of her torment, they will stand at a distance and cry out: "Woe, woe to the great city, the mighty city of Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come."" Revelation 18:17 For in a single hour such fabulous wealth has been destroyed!" Every shipmaster, passenger, and sailor, and all who make their living from the sea, will stand at a distance."
