Perpetual Refugeehood

9 12 2011

Israel has been accused for over 60 years of causing a Palestinian “refugee problem”. What is the true story?

First, in 1948, all residents of the Holy Land were called Palestinians, including the large and growing Jewish population. The name had stuck from Roman times when Rome renamed the area Palestine to try to stamp out the name of Israel (see Psalm 83:1-5 below). Israel’s popular newspaper, The Jerusalem Post, was called The Palestine Post before 1948 without any contradiction at that time. (See May 16, 1948 photo at bottom of this blog.) Update: Newt Gingrich on Palestinians – “Invented People”.

Second, those who fled Israel in 1948 were told to leave by their own leaders, so the Arab armies could destroy Israel. Then they could come home in a few days or weeks. When Israel won the war, the Arabs decided to keep the refugees in perpetual “refugeehood”. It was not the choice of the refugees, they are the victims. It was the choice of the Arab nations who refused to resettle them or  assimilate them.

Do not keep silent, O God! ​​Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! ​​For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. ​​They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,​​That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” ​​For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You. Psalm 83:1-5

As we approach the Hanukkah season, we need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but we also need to speak up for the truth. Pass along the link to this page to your friends. We must oppose revisionist history. Tell the true story about the perpetual refugees. Lovers of truth will thank you.

Israeli Jericho Missiles Moving

28 11 2011

Eyewitnesses report unusual movements of Israeli Jericho missiles according to World Net Daily’s Aaron Klein: Multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing Israeli military trucks in recent days transport and station large missiles at the periphery of Jerusalem and in locations inside the West Bank. The descriptions of the projectiles are consistent with the Jewish state’s mid-to-long range Jericho ballistic missiles.

Here are know facts about the Jericho III from Wikipedia: The Jericho III is believed to have a three-stage solid propellant and a payload of 1,000 to 1,300 kg. It is possible for the missile to be equipped with a single 750 kg nuclear warhead or two or three low yield MIRVwarheads…the Jericho III gives Israel nuclear strike capabilities within the entire Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and almost all parts of North America, as well as within large parts of South America and North Oceania.

MissileThreat.com reports: The range of the Jericho 3 also provides an extremely high impact speed for nearby targets, enabling it to avoid any Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) defenses that may develop in the immediate region. This would be most valuable in the event of a first-strike from Iran or as defense against Iranian retaliation to an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Israel pre-positioning these arms would be another indication of an imminent hot war.

This is only one of today’s (11-28-11) alarming headlines. The following list provides a simple exercise connecting the dots, with links to the full stories.

Egypt’s election today dominated my Islamists.

Kuwait’s government collapses.

Morocco Islamists win election.

Warships gather off Syria.

Blast in Iran today.

Four Katyusha Rockets hit Galilee today!

And, by the way, Putin is back in Russia.

When I was a boy it was big news in our church if someone reported a prophecy fulfilled in the last year or two. When we started our Issachar Forum Prophetic Think Tank eight years ago, we soon found so many prophesies fulfilled it was hard to get them all into our weekly meeting. Now, what I have listed above, is just today!

When Jesus was asked in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 what would be the signs of His return and the end of the age, he answered the question. All of the things He predicted have happened in my lifetime. The most time specific was His prediction of first the downfall of Jerusalem (fulfilled in 70 AD) and then the restoration of Jerusalem in 1967. Gentiles indeed ruled or “trampled down” Jerusalem from 70 to 1967. Jesus then declared the most astonishing part:

When you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Luke 21:31-33

This passage (along with Psalm 102) is one of the main reasons I wrote Generation LAST. The actual length of a generation is debatable, but how ever long it is, we are surely in the last generation now. Look up, Jesus is coming soon!

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM. Shalu Shalom Yerushalayim.

Iran Has The Bomb

14 11 2011

You may say this is premature, but please hear me out. Last Tuesday the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) released its long-awaited report on Iran. The report confirms in actual public fact what the various intelligence agencies have known for some time. There are three reasons to conclude that Iran now has several (at least low-level) atomic bombs.

First, the IAEA report confirms all the technology and expert advice is in the hands of Iran. Second, Israel and others have concluded they have all they need to build the bomb. Third, and this is the clincher, we know the above facts absolutely. It is logical to project a substantial degree of information that we don’t know that Iran has been able to hide, even from the IAEA. Therefore, we conclude that Iran likely has the bomb. Will they be reluctant to use it to wipe out Israel? Will they hesitate to use it against us? I don’t think so.

It is now a matter of timing. Israel can fly directly to Iran over Jordan and Iraq for the next six weeks. Then the US is out of Iraq and its airspace will likely be off limits to Israel. Does Israel have the luxury of waiting for further diplomatic efforts to play out? Can Israel depend on heavier sanctions to take effect? I don’t think so.

Now let us consider Bible prophecy. We have said often that the coming Psalm 83 War does not include Iran. It is primarily the Arab countries that touch Israel’s borders that are listed in the Psalm. Iran does not rise to its place in prophecy until the Ezekiel 38 & 39 Gog and Magog War. Iran (Persia) appears there along with Libya, Sudan and Turkey. Iran’s present threat is premature when viewed from a prophetic context. Therefore, it is likely that Iran will suffer a temporary setback that will make them a non-player in the imminent Psalm 83 conflict. Israel will have to act very soon. The ancient hatred against Yehovah God is arising in our day with vengeance. The spirit of Amalek is on the loose. Wicked men oppose God’s eternal purpose for Israel and all His people who love His Son, the Messiah. Will hell’s goal to defeat Yehovah and Yeshua ben Yehovah succeed? I DON’T THINK SO!

Again a message came to me from Yehovah: “Son of man, turn and face Mount Seir, and prophesy against its people. Give them this message from the Sovereign Yehovah: “I am your enemy, O Mount Seir, and I will raise my fist against you to destroy you completely. I will demolish your cities and make you desolate. Then you will know that I am Yehovah. “Your eternal hatred for the people of Israel led you to butcher them when they were helpless, when I had already punished them for all their sins.” Ezekiel 35:1-5 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Arab Winter Begins

27 10 2011

Many conservative commentators and most Biblical prophetic writers warned for months that the Arab Spring was destined to freeze over, becoming an Islamic Winter. It has begun. In each case in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria, the result is worse conditions and more Sharia law imposed. Helpless citizens watch their democratic hopes go up in smoke.

The Tunisian election last weekend brought radicals to power. Libya’s provisional government announced it would base the new regime on Sharia. Egypt’s elections next month are predicted to choose Muslim Brotherhood related groups. And so it goes. 100,000 Egyptian Christians have fled the country in just the last few months. They are escaping murder, rape, beatings and church burnings. The military used to protect them and arrest Muslim attackers, but now stand back and give tacit approval, which encourages expanded mayhem. Some military troops even take part.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.Amos 9:13

This passage in Amos refers to Israel’s restoration, after their scattering to all nations that lasted nearly 2,000 years. However, I see in the phrase: “the plowman overtakes the reaper” a commentary on the Arab Spring. Before the expected democratic “fruit” could be seen, it was plowed under by the radical Muslim mobs. I spoke of this a few weeks ago, but it bears repeating.

Psalm 83 war preparations are accelerating. For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. ​​They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. Verses 2 and 3 describe the “tumult” of the violent protests and identifies the real target of their hatred is God Himself. Since they can’t reach God, they attack His people as a way to attack Yehovah God.

As the enemies of God accelerate their plans, let us accelerate our prophetic intercession. We will pray for Israel and stand for Israel because God is fulfilling His ancient covenant promises now, in our day! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem to come in the form of the Prince of Peace, Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus, Son of God.

Egypt Erupts Again

10 10 2011

Egyptian mobs clashed with Christians today in day three of new anti-Christian riots. Dozens are dead with hundreds injured. It is time to conclude that the Egyptian Arab Spring has not led to freedom of religion and speech for Egypt’s ten million Christians. The opposite is evidenced by a downward spiral of violence (ABC video link) led by the real new freedom of Muslim fanatics. The army not only does not restrain, but often encourages this new “liberty” for sectarian violence.

The deadly clashes between Egypt’s Copt minority and security forces further stress what should have been clear for a while now: America’s insistence on President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster helped create a catastrophe, with Israel’s southern neighbor increasingly descending into the throes of chaos. (from Ynetnews.com article: Paying the Obama Price by Yigal Walt)

Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood waits in the wings for the November 28 elections when they will likely assume rule over all of Egypt. Israel’s Embassy in Cairo has closed twice in as many months due to mob violence. The gas pipeline from Egypt to Israel and Jordan was bombed six times this year leading to much higher gas prices for Israel. Add increased Egyptian troops in Sinai after the terrorist attack into Israel, and you have clear escalation of tensions. Even more menacing reports detail sophisticated weapons now flowing freely from Libya through Egypt to Hamas in Gaza.

So how does this relate to Bible prophecy? This is another step toward the impending Psalm 83 War. The Palestinian flag is waving over more demonstrations around the world. Lebanon has fallen to radical Hezbollah. Syria is teetering on the brink and Saudi Arabia is now facing unrest from Shiites in the northeast. Even Jordan is threatened. Events are happening so fast that the following scripture is fulfilled before our eyes.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.Amos 9:13

This passage in Amos refers to the restoration of Israel after their scattering to all nations that lasted nearly 2,000 years. However, I see in the phrase: “the plowman overtakes the reaper” a commentary on the Arab Spring. Before the expected democratic “fruit” could be seen, it was plowed under by the radical Muslim mobs. Yet, in Israel there is much fruit harvested to the ultimate glory of Yehovah God and to His Son, Jesus; Yeshua ben Yehovah.

As we celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles this week, we not only look back to the tabernacle of Moses in the wilderness. We joyfully look ahead to that glorious day when our holy God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will tabernacle with the redeemed for all eternity. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Ancient Hatred

4 10 2011

Contemporary analysis of Islamic hatred of Israel ignores historical context. Pundits seize upon Israel’s “occupation and oppression” of innocent Palestinian “victims” or they opine about the poverty in the Muslim world as the reason for anti-semitic violence. Rarely do they admit the unrelenting history of hatred directed at the Jewish people. Consider this verse expressing God’s final judgement of the Edomites who descended from Esau, brother of Jacob (Israel). This region today is part Jordan and part Saudi Arabia.Another name for Edom was Mt Seir.

A Message for Edom: Again a message came to me from Yehovah: “Son of man, turn and face Mount Seir, and prophesy against its people. Give them this message from the Sovereign Yehovah: “I am your enemy, O Mount Seir, and I will raise my fist against you to destroy you completely. I will demolish your cities and make you desolate. Then you will know that I am Yehovah. “Your eternal hatred for the people of Israel led you to butcher them when they were helpless, when I had already punished them for all their sins.” Ezekiel 35:1-5 NLT

This ancient hatred is evident in an unreported statement by Abbas Zaki, a senior leader of the Palestinian Authority this week. He was caught on video tape speaking in Arabic exposing the true goal of the PA to utterly destroy Israel. A video clip of Zaki’s remarks was translated by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, a media watchdog organization that monitors Arabic-language media.

Israel claims that Abbas and numerous other PA Arab officials have made it clear in many ways that the “greater” and ultimate goal has been and continues to be the elimination of the State of Israel altogether, but this was an outright statement to that effect. Zaki made his remarks during an interview on the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite television channel, which reaches millions of Arabs worldwide. He noted that reaching the “greater goal” would be impossible initially, and that revealing it would not be smart: “If we say that we want to wipe Israel out… C’mon, it’s too difficult. It’s not [acceptable] policy to say so. Don’t say these things to the world,” he warned. “Keep it to yourself.” Arutz Sheva, Israel National News. Click for video.

It is critical in these days of great delusion, that we love the truth and stay focused on God’s view of the world. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

All Nations Gather

20 09 2011

Today is the opening of the United Nations session in New York. All the nations of the earth gather to verbally attack Israel, creating a state that will be free of Jews. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas insists that the UN unilaterally declare the Palestinian state ignoring Israel and all previous agreements. Israel has appeased and conceded for years based on the Oslo accords of 1993 which are now being totally ignored by the Abbas application for statehood. Prominently featured by the Abbas campaign is a mother of seven terrorists convicted of murdering Israelis. So much for the peace process.

Additionally, the Durban III Conference on Racism is also convening in New York with a similar anti-Israel goal. President Obama indicated he will veto the Abbas effort, but on 9-11 his speech bemoaned countries suffering terrorism without including Israel in his list. believers need to pray that all deception will be exposed before the whole world. Pray for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he speaks to the General Assembly.

I have predicted an inevitable outbreak of violence against Israel, in earlier columns, as a direct consequence of these UN meetings. Either way the votes go, violence will potentially escalate to the Psalm 83 War.

Yet, while the nations gather to oppose Israel, Yehovah God is right on schedule with His purpose to restore Israel in mercy and favor. There will be another gathering of nations to Jerusalem for final judgment according to Joel 3:1-2: “At the time of those events,” says Yehovah, “when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather the armies of the world into the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will judge them for harming my people, my special possession, for scattering my people among the nations, and for dividing up my land.

When the dust settles and the Messiah Jesus comes there will be a permanent gathering of nations spoken of by Jeremiah over 2,500 years ago.

At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of Yehovah, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of Yehovah, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts. Jeremiah 3:17

Syrian Snipers and Turks in Cairo

13 09 2011

The New Middle East

The winds of radical change are blowing over the cradle of civilization. Almost daily some new event adds to the reshaping of old loyalties. Egypt has fallen from the Western sphere and is quickly descending into ancient barbaric blood lust. Twice in as many weeks, radicals have attacked the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. Today, the Prime Minister of Turkey is in Cairo extending his influence, attempting to re-establish a world-wide Islamic Caliphate. This, only days after announcing that Turkish warships will guard the next Flotilla to Gaza. He is seeking to intimidate Israel and Cyprus who lay claim to massive new natural gas deposits offshore in the Mediterranean.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo on Tuesday that the recognition of a Palestinian state was “not an option but an obligation.”

Meanwhile, also today, Syrian snipers killed five mourners at a funeral near Hama. The five were shot dead by security police snipers from the rooftop of a public school and a municipal water tank in the town of Kfar Nubouzeh, when hundreds of mourners began chanting slogans demanding the downfall of President Bashar Assad. Such is the perverse concept of “security” in the Islamic dictatorship. This utter disregard for the sanctity of life is endemic in Islam. It is a well know boast in Islam that they will defeat Israel (the little satan) and America ( the great satan) because “you love life, the Muslim loves death.”

In 2007, two years before he killed thirteen people and wounded twenty-nine at Fort Hood, Texas, Nidal Malik Hasan prepared a slide show for his fellow Army doctors on the subject of Islam. One of his last points read: “We love death more than you love life!”

There are also plans to attack the Israeli Embassy in Jordan according to Fox News. Many times I have warned that the Psalm 83 War is close. Each new event makes it that much more inevitable. There are even those calling for a million man march in Aman. Ezekiel warned of an “eternal hatred” against Israel. God has declared that it will lead to a bloodbath for Edom (Jordan hanging by a thread). It has begun. It will culminate with a terrible defeat for the nations immediately around, and a great victory for Israel by the hand of Yehovah God.

Your eternal hatred for the people of Israel led you to butcher them when they were helpless, when I had already punished them for all their sins. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Yehovah, since you show no distaste for blood, I will give you a bloodbath of your own. Your turn has come! Ezekiel 35:5-6 NLT

So what does this mean for us? Should we be fearful? God forbid! It is time for us to snatch people from the burning and bring them to the One Who is Salvation, Yeshua (Jesus means salvation). It is time for us to wake up, stand up and speak up! Our Lord said he would not leave us or forsake us. We may suffer, but He will be with us in the process. Jesus spoke of these things in Luke 21 with the admonition:

But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 NASB

Sinai Game Changer

27 08 2011

After the attack on south Israel near Eilat last weekend it’s a new ball game. Eight Israelis were killed in the terrorist attack plus most of the attackers. Reports vary on the loyalty of the attackers either Al-Qaeda Egypt, or Gaza rooted sub groups under Hamas.  It is a definite game changer, either way. Israel has enjoyed peace on its long border with Egypt for decades. View that in your review mirror, it’s history.

The Egyptian revolution was devastating for their economy, killing tourism, and thrusting the nation into chaos and potential famine. Add to that the rise and expected victory of the Muslim Brotherhood in the September elections, and you have more than the provisional military government can handle. Egypt is also very concerned about an Al-Qaeda sabotage of the Suez Canal. Policing the Sinai is a pretty low priority for the military government. Therefore, the Sinai is turning into no man’s land, a bit like our own wild west on steroids, only with a demonic agenda to destroy Israel.

Great irony followed the terrorist attack on Eilat. Israel was the victim of an unprovoked terror assult resulting in a major forced concession that now allows Egypt to station troops in the eastern border. In the fog of the attack several Egyptian security personnel were killed, leading to a demand from Egypt for more troops on their side of the border. This is a clear violation of the peace treaty, but Israel has already conceded under pressure from the US Administration because of Egypt’s threat to break it.

This means that Gaza terror groups will now have free rein in the Sinai along with Al-Qaeda. It is another step closer to the next war with Israel. Syria is on the brink, and even Jordan continues to slide into position for the inevitable Psalm 83 confederacy. Stay tuned. It is happening so fast. This week Israel narrowly avoided a war in Gaza when Hamas backed down.

Beyond politics, what does the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have planned for the great desert wasteland of the Sinai? Consider what the Bible says about the final conditions when Israel returns in the favor of Yehovah:

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland. The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land. Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish where desert jackals once lived. Isaiah 35: 1, 6-7 NLT.

Ask Yehovah for rain In the time of the latter rain. Yehovah will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone. Zechariah 10:1

Destroy Israel for World Peace?

23 08 2011

Al Quds Day: Dateline London, England, UK 8-21-11

Whatever happened to merry olde England? Witness the young boy holding the sign. Thanks to the Elder of Ziyon website for the picture and links regarding the Al Quds terror rally in London on Sunday 8-21-11. “It is time, Brothers and Sisters, for Al Quds to be liberated. For Islam and people of the world who wish to pray there to the one God. And we say here today to you Israel, we see your crimes and we loathe your crimes. And to us your nation does not exist, because it is a criminal injustice against humanity. We want to see Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt go to the borders and stop this now. Liberate Al Quds! March to Al Quds!” These were the words spoken by Lauren Booth (Tony Blair’s half-sister-in-law) at the Al Quds Day terror rally organised by the Islamic Human Rights Commission in London’s Trafalgar Square yesterday. She had just pledged her support for Hamas. Richard Millett

Just what exactly is Al Quds Day? Al Quds Day is an Iranian holiday created by Ayatollah Khomeini, expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposing Zionism as well as Israel’s control of Jerusalem. In Iran, it is held on the last Friday of Ramadan, August 26 this year. The name al Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem and is their attempt to revise history and the Muslim claims that it was always Islamic.

Make no mistake, it is not about land or freedom or oppression. It is about Jerusalem! It is about Israel’s very right to exist as a Jewish state. The Bible is crystal clear that Jerusalem is the center of all prophetic scenarios of end time events. Jerusalem is the prize coveted by many groups and nations. The UN wants to turn it into an international city. The Vatican wants control. The Muslims want to seize it and eliminate the Jews and all memory of Israel’s existence “Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.” Psalm 83:4 NLT

The good news is that Yehovah God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has a better plan. He intends to exalt Jerusalem. ​I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; ​​They shall never hold their peace day or night. ​​You who make mention of Yehovah, do not keep silent, ​​And give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 61:6-7

There indeed is a Jerusalem DAY coming when God will complete His purpose. The prophetic timing is quite specific as seen in this verse: For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, ​​I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;​​and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. ​​They have also divided up My land. Joel 3:1-2

The timing is after Israel has been regathered from the scattering (or Diaspora) to all nations. After Israel is back in the land, Yehovah will then gather the nations there to judge them because they divided His land! I highly recommend you read the rest of Joel 3 where God details exactly what and how He will do it. Jerusalem will be holy, Israel will be forgiven, the land will be fruitful, and Jerusalem will abide forever! Praise the name of the living God Yehovah and his resurrected Son Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus Son of God.

Mobs, Riots and Revolution

15 08 2011

Topic 1:  Mob Violence as a Method

This Dry Bones cartoon touches a nerve in a growing trend not only in England, but around the world. We pray it not come to America, but early signs suggest it will come here, too. There is a logical progression in my title today. Mobs without restraint become riots which can lead to full-scale revolution.

Mob rule is nothing more than anarchy. There is vivid historic example in the bloody French Revolution characterized by mob violence and riots as the means of social change. The American revolution, on the other hand, was a unified resistance to tyranny conducted in an orderly and principled manner. The new republic which emerged set the gold standard for true freedom in its Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution.

The best treatment of this subject is in Ann Coulter’s newest book, Demonic. Whatever you may think of her, the case is made with excellence. What makes this her best book….her incisive demonstration that the revolution was the mother of the many totalitarian “revolutions” it spawned in the name of the people, her dissection of the mob mentality that drove it, and her case against today’s American liberals as exemplars of this mob mentality.

She writes that “all the bloody totalitarian dictatorships of the twentieth century have drawn inspiration from Rousseau and the French Revolution.” All the “great liberal ‘reformers’ of the twentieth century, from Lenin to Hugo Chavez,” got their “playbook from :Robespierre” — probably the worst and most radical of the French revolutionaries — “who argued, following Rousseau, that a ‘Republic of Virtue’ could only be achieved by ‘virtue combined with terror.'”

Democrats, says Coulter, “are heirs to the French Revolution, the uprising of a mob,” whereas “conservatives are heirs to the American Revolution and the harmonious order of a republic.” David Limbaugh, Newsmax

Topic 2: Fifteen Days of Doom for Syria

President Obama and the leader of Turkey have set Syrian President Bashar Assad a deadline of Aug. 27 for “extinguishing the popular uprising against his rule and starting to implement genuine democratic reforms.” Are you kidding me? Assad can continue murdering his own people for two more weeks (now over 2,000 but likely double or triple that amount). It may be the most outrageous foreign policy decision yet for the Obama Administration.

It would be like hundreds of terrorists capturing a Chicago mall with several thousand hostages. With the National Guard and SWAT teams in place surrounding the mall, the terrorists start killing one hostage every hour. Then the Guard and SWAT Commanders, along with the FBI, announce that the terrorists will have 15 days to finish their murderous reign of terror before any action taken against them. Fifteen days to “extinguish” the uprising in Syria translated means: We will do nothing to stop you for 15 days!

The very next day, Assad increased his attacks! Encouraged by the 15-day leeway granted him by the US President Barak Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, Bashar Assad Monday, Aug. 15, sent his tanks backed by mechanized infantry into Homs, a town of 1.5 million inhabitants.

“The word of Yehovah came to me a second time saying, ‘What do you see?’ and I said, ‘I see a boiling pot, facing away from the north.’ Then Yehovah said to me, ‘Out of the north the evil will break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.’” Jeremiah 1:13, 14

We must pray for mercy and peace in this day of anarchy and revolution. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for the victory coming in the imminent Psalm 83 War. Pray in the name of Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus Son of God.

Caliphate Coming

29 07 2011

Breaking News Today: Huge news today with the announcement of the “retirement” of General Isik Kosaner, the head of Turkey’s military. The three generals over Turkey’s ground, naval and air forces also “resigned”. This pretty much completed the total takeover of Turkey by Islamists.

The slide towards an Islamic theocracy has accelerated sharply in recent months with this news signaling a total plunge. The seismic advance of Islam threatens the  NATO alliance for all of Europe. Just a few short years ago everyone was wondering if Turkey would be admitted to the European Union. Perhaps the question is will the EU be admitted to the Islamic Caliphate?

The last Caliphate ended when Turkey turned to secularism in the 1920’s at the end of the Ottoman Empire. Yet the Koran predicts the rise of an end time Caliph to rule over a revived world-wide Islamic empire. This now appears more probable and imminent.

We have been warning for some time of a regional war based on Psalm 83. We have also reminded you of Ezekiel 38 which speaks of Gog and Magog War. It is important to notice the sequence of these two separate wars. The countries listed in Psalm 83 correspond to the modern countries with borders next to Israel. However, none of these are mentioned in the list of countries in the Ezekiel 38 War. Why not? Perhaps the answer is a decisive victory by Israel in the Psalm 83 War extending Israel’s borders to the Genesis 15 definition: On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates. Genesis 15:18.

Stay tuned and keep praying!

Syria On the Brink

12 07 2011

Yesterday a pro-government mob attacked and actually broke into the US Embassy in Damascus, Syria. They also attacked the French Embassy but were repelled using live fire. So where was the security for the US? US embassy staff sheltered in a fortified wing of the mission as pro-Assad militiamen wrecked the mission’s equipment raised the Syrian flag and smeared offensive graffiti on the walls while Syrian security forces stood by and did nothing. (Debka File report). Hillary Clinton castigated the Syrians for not protecting our Embassy! We have Marines there, why did they not defend it? Any embassy is sovereign territory. The United States was invaded and we let them in? Events are unfolding at such a rapid pace that we have trouble keeping up. Our media hardly notices. Last Friday, a half million Syrians demonstrated against their dictator and it was not news here. That followed a 300,000 strong protest the Friday before. Bashir Assad will not go quietly. Unlike others, he has no real friends to take him in and will probably fight to the death. He may wrap himself in the Palestinian flag and attack Israel to save his government.

Now our embassy is attacked by his henchmen. What will happen next? I confess no knowledge of the political choices coming, but I do know exactly what the Bible says will be the final result. Damascus will be destroyed and not be inhabited anymore. It is the oldest (5,000 years) continuously inhabited capital city in the world with some two million residents. It has never been destroyed! Jerusalem has been destroyed at least eleven times. Many prophecies for today are explained away as having already been fulfilled. That device does not work here. How does Damascus fall?

Psalm 83 outlines a war that is about to take place. The invaders are specifically named. When their ancient geographic boundaries are overlaid on the modern nations it includes Gaza, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon and possibly Iraq. Add to this the prophecies of Gaza’s destruction and you have the ingredients for a serious conflict. It is not a stretch to see the destruction of Damascus occurring in this scenario. Here are two of the prophecies:

The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1

Damascus has grown feeble; ​​she turns to flee, and fear has seized her. ​​Anguish and sorrows have taken her like a woman in labor. ​​Why is the city of praise not deserted, the city of My joy? ​​Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, ​​and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day,” says Yehovah of hosts. ​​“I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad.” Jeremiah 49:24-27

Pray for mercy for the people of Syria, that they will turn to Yehovah God and Yeshua ben Yehovah, His Son.

Anthony Weiner’s Wife

21 06 2011

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them. Ephesians 5:10-13 NLT

I will not comment on the sins of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The text above is enough said. However, in our sympathy for his new bride expecting their first baby, something has come to light that is not about immorality, but ideology. Walid Shoebat, a Christian ex-Muslim, has just reported that Huma Abedin, the offended wife, is more than simply the loyal “right hand woman of Hillary Clinton”. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she was educated in Jedda, Saudi Arabia from age two to eighteen. Her father was an Islamic scholar of Indian descent while her mother is originally from Pakistan.

The plot thickens with the revelation that her mother is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia, according to Arabic news sources cited by a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative. Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim Brotherhood activist in the Holy Land, translated sources that say Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor of sociology in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, belongs to the Sunni movement’s women’s division known as the Muslim Sisterhood. One of the Sisterhoods aims, reportedly, is “to spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes.”

Syria Getting Serious

15 06 2011

Israel E-Card Volume 5 Issue 12

Topic #1   US POISED TO STRIKE SYRIA

Monday, June 13, the US deployed the USS Bataan amphibian air carrier strike vessel opposite Syria’s Mediterranean coast with 2,000 marines, 6 war planes, 15 attack helicopters, including new V-22 Ospreys, and 27 choppers for landing forces aboard. (DEBKAfile at Debka.com).

The Syria front is heating up. Assad is killing his own citizens and reports of inhuman beatings and rape are emerging. He may be the next deposed dictator, but likely to be followed by Muslim fundamentalists. Iran has direct involvement and the stakes are high for them to control both Syria and Lebanon as Iran tightens the noose around Israel. In the South, Gaza is ruled by another Iranian proxy, Hamas, while Egypt is breaking toward Iran as well.

Lebanon is now under the complete control of Hezbollah with the appointment of the new cabinet which it dominates. All of this portends a very serious summer perhaps leading to the Psalm 83 War scenario. Be forewarned.

Topic #2  Swords Before Plowshares

Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears (Joel 3:9-10).

We love to quote Joel 2 about the pouring out of the Holy Spirit. That will “preach,” as they say. But not too many people want to go to church and pay their tithes and offerings to hear the hard words of what is really coming. We long for the day when the swords will be beaten into plowshares (Isaiah 2:4). However, Jesus clearly prophesied wars first. We pray for peace but prepare for war.

So we see that the sword comes first, being made from material that has a peaceful purpose. The order is set. Plows melted into swords, followed later by weapons of war melted down for plows. May that day come soon. Pray, pray, pray!

Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Yehovah. Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; for the winepress is full, the vats overflow—for their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of Yehovah is near in the valley of decision (Joel 3:9-14).

June 7 Protests

1 06 2011

Israel E-Card Volume 5 Issue 11

Topic #1   UN STATEHOOD FOR PA IS LIKE DECLARING THE WORLD IS FLAT

“If the UN in September declares the Palestinian Authority to be a state, it might as well decide the world is flat,” PM Binyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee Monday. He said Israel cannot stop the resolution from going forward and has few friends in the international body, but a veto from any member of the UN Security Council would block the proposal from reaching the General Assembly, whose anti-Israel majority likely would approve it. (INN) 

Naksa Day, planned for June 7, to protest Israel’s Six Day War victory in 1967. Thanks to Obama putting 1967 back on the table, Palestinians now plan to rush the borders in mass numbers again as they did on May 15. With days of rage, and now regular border clashes, you wonder when they ever work. All of this is leading up to the big one in September when PA pushes for a unilateral declaration of statehood. Psalm 83 will burst into reality at some point.

Topic #2  Jerusalem Water Discovery

“Israel’s largest underground water source discovered near Jerusalem convention center. Excavation work by Israel Railways while working on high speed Jerusalem-Tel Aviv train line reveals cave with largest underground water sources ever discovered in Israel. A small canyon at the end of the segment that has so far been checked plunges through cracks down into a series of waterfalls.” (Haaretz)

For years now I have prayed for rain according to Zechariah 10:1, Ask Yehovah for rain In the time of latter rain. Yehovah will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone. We must keep praying that He will do it with rain from above and streams from below. Thank you Jesus!

They rely on empty debates and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. Isaiah 59:4

Ask Yehovah for rain In the time of latter rain. Yehovah will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone. For the idols speak delusion; ​​the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; ​​they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; ​​they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:1-2

Arab Spring/Winter War?

30 05 2011

Great Guest Post – by Bill Salas

In a last ditch effort to politically broker a final Arab state called Palestine, U.S. President Barrack Obama showed his Pro-Palestinian trump card. In May, 2011, with his left hand clenched in a seeming show of American solidarity for Israel’s security, Obama snuck his right hand into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cookie jar, and was caught red-handed attempting to pick-pocket Israel’s most prized possession; their homeland.

Obama’s presidential play prompted Netanyahu to push his poker chips forward, lay all his cards on the table, and shout, “ISRAEL’S ALL IN!” Netanyahu seized the opportunity to call the U.S. President’s and Palestinians bluff. The King of Israel revealed his Royal Flush, leaving little wiggle room for future Mideast peace negotiations.

His strict laundry list of conditions hit at the heart of every Palestinian contention. To the Palestinians, this was nothing short of a declaration of war. BY BILL SALAS   (Read entire article now.)

Visit Bill Salas’ Home page. Bill convinced me (along with current events) that Egypt is one of the confederates in the Psalm 83 War, coming soon! My brand new book, Generation LIGHT, reflects this correction.

Please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, God’s prayer request in Psalm 122. Have a blessed Memorial Day as we give thanks for our brave men and women in uniform who have given their very lives for our liberty.

1967 Lies

19 05 2011

Yes, I said 1967 lies, not 1967 lines. President Obama today totally and shamelessly moved the United States of America into direct violation of Joel 3:2, the consequences of which will bring fearful calamities on America. I am not making this up. He proclaimed this seismic shift in US policy, at a time when this nation has suffered six weeks of continuous tragedies already, including two rounds of killer tornadoes, fires in Texas and now flooding in the Mississippi River and delta. I use the word seismic with great trepidation since earthquake is the one natural disaster we have not seen. To quote Thomas Jefferson, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.

Let’s look deeper into Joel 3:2. I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.

First, note that the historical timing of this event is clear from verse one; it is after God has regathered Israel from all the nations into their own land. The reason for the prophesied judgment of God is simple. The nations have divided His land.

Israel is now 45 miles wide; the entire country is only 45 miles wide! Reverting to the 1967 pre-war borders would make Israel 8 (EIGHT!) miles wide. What is wrong with this picture? President Obama has agreed to the Palestinian pre-condition demanded by Yassar Arafat. This division of the land would assure Israel’s destruction by the growing menace of radical Islam surrounding them. With friends like President Obama, who needs enemies?

Abbas, leader of the West Bank Palestinian Authority, wrote a New York Times Op-Ed wherein he rewrote history. He openly lied about history claiming that Israel attacked the Arabs in 1948, when the facts are utterly clear from recorded history. The UN voted Israel as a nation one day and the next day seven Arab armies invaded Israel to drive her into the sea. Three of those nations are still in a state of war with Israel since that time. Egypt and Jordan, who later made treaties, are about to break them.

The world is also rewriting the history of 1967. Again, Israel was drawn into war by invading armies. When the dust settled, Israel had a miraculous victory and control of more land (Gaza, West Bank, the Sinai and the Golan Heights). President Obama thinks it is a good idea for Israel to give it all back so they can try again. Either way, there will be war. Obama’s speech simply moves up the timing.

Helen Thomas was wrong. The Jews will not “go back where they came from.” There is no other place for them. Israel is their land and they are there to stay,  not by UN permission, but by the authority of Almighty Yehovah God and His unbreakable promise.

(Dear reader, I have included the following text as evidence of God’s purpose This prophecy was spoken by God to the Land itself! This was the theme of my first book, Prophesy To The Land!)

“And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel, and say, ‘O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Yehovah! Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because the enemy has said of you, ‘Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession,’ therefore prophesy, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people”— therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Yehovah! Thus says the Lord Yehovah to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the nations all around— therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country.’

 “Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.” Therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings.Then you shall know that I am Yehovah.Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.”

 ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Because they say to you, ‘You devour men and bereave your nation of children,’ therefore you shall devour men no more, nor bereave your nation anymore,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Nor will I let you hear the taunts of the nations anymore, nor bear the reproach of the peoples anymore, nor shall you cause your nation to stumble anymore,” says the Lord Yehovah.’ ” Ezekiel 36:1-15.





Nakba Fizzle

15 05 2011

Israel E-Card Volume 5 Issue 10

Topic #1  Don’t Stop Praying Just Yet

The much ballyhooed march on Israel today pretty much fizzled relative to their call for two million to march. That is certainly an answer to prayer. Yet several thousand Muslims did attempt to violate Israel’s territorial sovereignty from Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank. Also, there were Nakba demonstrations in Jordan, Egypt and even within Israel.

Muslims commemorate what they call Nakba, their “catastrophe or disaster” when Israel became a nation on May 15, 1948. Someone has observed, however, that the real catastrophe was the systematic genocide of six million Jews in Hitler’s War.

Yet, it is certainly not over, The protest’s success, however limited will only serve to make them more demanding. We are in perilous times. There will be more tragedies to come. Pray for Jerusalem’s peace.

Topic #2  At the End of the Day—or Night?

At the end of the day….is an overused cliché. I am tired of hearing it from pundits every day on cable news. But, I was thinking about it this week and realized a small word from the Lord. We are not near the end of the day, we are at the end of the night! There are lots of great scripture references to support my point. One of my favorites is: For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

We are at the darkest part of the night before the dawn. Rather than fearing the darkness, I listen for the life sounds in the night. Tree frogs, crickets, locusts, owls and other night life fill the forest. Last night, Doreen and I had a dinner date and sat in our car for 15 minutes listening to a mocking-bird sing at least a dozen different beautiful songs. Then, when we went to check our mail, we were treated to a family of seven deer out for a walk. They startled a bunny, right in the middle of town. This is our Father’s world, Jesus is coming soon!

The violence of the wicked will destroy them. Proverbs 21:7

I see Him, but not now; ​​I behold Him, but not near; ​​A Star shall come out of Jacob; ​​A Scepter shall rise out of Israel, ​​and batter the brow of Moab, ​​and destroy all the sons of  tumult. and Edom shall be a possession; ​​Seir also, his enemies, shall be a possession, ​​while Israel does valiantly. Numbers 23:17-18

May 15 Catastrophe Day Starts Early

13 05 2011

We continue to pray that the Nakba Day riots will fizzle. However it has already begun. Even the Western media is beginning to report it. Thousands of Egyptians storm the Israeli Consulate in Alexandria, while more pictures are now coming through of Egyptians coming to the Gaza/Israel border. Some of these are women and children in horse carts for effect. People are also massing in Gaza, West Bank, Lebanon and Syria. One Fox News TV reporter, conveniently embedded with Palestinian rock throwers, gets a whiff of tear gas and coughs convincingly (good live TV).
The story, once buried, is now catching fire as linked to the demonstration/riots all over the Arab world. This is a cunning and evil plot. While Abbas claims he opposes a third intifada, a top official of the Palestinian Authority says the PA can’t stop an intifada if the people start one on Sunday. (Hint-Hint). This is tacit approval if not full endorsement of new violence.
The biased microscope of world media will scrutinize and magnify any Israeli mistakes. Believers are fasting and praying for wisdom in the Israeli responses. What would the US do if thousands just walked across the border at several places at the same time? This is the dilemma facing Israel this weekend.

Top Fatah official: ‘PA won’t be able to stop 3rd intifada’

’17-year-old serious wounded’; 3 cops injured in e. J’lem

Thousands march on Israeli consulate in Alexandria

Palestinians: Prepare for 3rd intifada

Remember me, Yehovah, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. Ps 106: 4-5

May 15 March on Israel

7 05 2011

                  One week from now Israel faces a potential calamity. Arabic and English internet sites are buzzing with threats and chatter calling for millions of Muslims to march into Israel in a human wave. Western media have not given much mention, but this march could explode into a full-scale war.

Psalm 83 has been well documented here, and this event could be the trigger. Given the so-called “Arab Spring” demonstrations in multiple countries, Palestinians prepare to seize the moment for their own uprising. The Arabic term for uprising is “intifada”. These internet sites are calling for a third intifada. However, Israel, under Netanyahu, will not be passive this time. Pray wisdom for Israel’s leaders to seek Divine guidance for the crisis. The Psalm 83 War will be won by Israel, but not without Yehovah’s supernatural help.

A catalyst for Palestinians, the recent agreement between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority,violates the PA’s previous agreements with Israel. Israel responded by holding back tax funds from the PA. However, in a blatantly counterproductive move, the EU is sending 85 million Euros to the rescue of the Palestinians. The contradiction here is vivid to close observers. The EU is part of the Quartet, which is four entities working to impose a “peace treaty” on Israel. They are the United States, the United Nations, Russia and the European Union.

The Quartet has declared numerous times that Hamas is a terrorist group that must do three things for acceptance as a peace partner with the PA. 1. Accept Israel’s right to exist. 2. Renounce violence (which is impossible since their name is an acronym which means “violence” in Hebrew). 3. Agree to the previous agreements between the Palestinian Authority and Israel. Hamas flatly rejects all three stipulations. The opposite is the case; the PA has joined with Hamas via their “Unity” pact.

Israel can in no way make peace with those whose charter demands Israel’s annihilation. Therefore, this rising “Arab Spring” movement will detonate the worst impulses in Israel’s enemies. We have seen this coming for several years. What will be the event that lights the fuse? Another flash point is the PA’s announced intent to unilaterally declare statehood in September. It may not happen next week, but the fuse is ready to burn.

Finally, it is in this context that Prime Minister Netanyahu meets President Obama in DC on May 20. He will also speak to a joint session of the US Congress on May 23 or 24. Prophetic events are piling on top of one another at a dizzying pace. Fasten your seat belt for a wild ride this month. Or better yet, spend some serious time in your prayer closet.

O God, do not be silent! Do not be deaf. Do not be quiet, O God. Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemies? Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up? They devise crafty schemes against your people; they conspire against your precious ones. “Come,”they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.” Yes, this was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you. Psalm 83:1-5 NLT.                                                           





Syrian Prefers Israel

27 04 2011

The Associated Press reported a conversation with a Syrian demonstrator declaring the Middle East’s dirty little secret. Arabs living in Israel proper are better off than Arabs living in any Arab country.

For the past half century, Syrians have despised Israel, and, by extension, the Jews in general. But right now, they wish more than anything that they could have it as good as the Palestinians and live under “Israeli occupation.”

“Let Israel come and take Syria. Let the Jews come – anything is better than [Syrian dictator] Bashar Assad,” a frightened pro-democracy protester told the Associated Press by telephone during a government crackdown on Monday. (Israel Today)

Today’s headlines

Death toll has now passed 450 in Syria’s crackdown on demonstrations.

Terrorists blow up an Egyptian gas pipeline for the third time.

“Stars” virus follows Stuxnet to Iran’s nuclear facilities.

54 per cent of Egyptians polled want to break peace treaty with Israel.

What does all of this mean in Bible prophecy? It brings us back to the unfolding fulfillment of Psalm 83. Everything is falling into place. Add in the chaos in Gaza, the unrest in Jordan and Hezbollah’s takeover of Lebanon. You have all the necessary developments for the imminent war. The last four verses of the Psalm reveal the prayer of the Psalmist for the salvation of the enemy. He desires that they seek God’s name. Either they turn to Yehovah or perish. Either way, they will know that Yehovah is is the only true God.

So pursue them with Your tempest, ​​and frighten them with Your storm. ​​Fill their faces with shame, ​​that they may seek Your name, O Yehovah. Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; yes, let them be put to shame and perish, ​​that they may know that You, whose name alone is Yehovah, are the Most High over all the earth. (Psalm 83:15-18)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the salvation of her enemies.





Damascus Destroyed!

22 04 2011

Okay, so it hasn’t happened yet, but it will. The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap”. Isaiah 17:1.

(BBC photo of Beirut)

Damascus will be destroyed. You can take that to the bank. The capital of Syria is the oldest continuously inhabited capital in the world. God says it will become a heap of  ruins. It has never been destroyed in all the wars of history. Jerusalem has been destroyed at least eleven times.

We have seen the Psalm 83 prophecy building for several years now. It makes sense that the Isaiah 17 prophecy would be part of that war. Just today, the Jerusalem Post reported that 49 died in protests in Syria. YNet News later reported those killed today by the government passed 70. Fox News is also reporting the violence.

This may be the most important news story of the month. While most eyes are on Libya, the growing crisis in Syria has more direct significance to prophecy. CNN reported that Jordan also continues to experience growing anti-government demonstrations spurred on by the Muslim Brotherhood in the name of Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak to a joint session of Congress next month. His pivotal speech will set the tone for Israel’s response to world pressure (Los Angeles Times) for the UN to unilaterally declare an independent state of Palestine.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Jesus is alive, the grave is empty. Death has lost its sting. Hallelujah!

Hamas Blasts School Bus, Declares Ceasefire

7 04 2011

When you were a little kid, you punched your friend and then said: “Truce, no hitting back.” I remember that anyway. We call that juvenile or childish humor. But what is happening in Israel today is no joke. Hamas has a terror cell planning to kidnap Israelis during Passover (which starts Monday night). Israel attacked the cell a couple days ago killing three. Hamas called it “a crime” and called for the world to condemn Israel.
Today, Hamas shoots an advanced, Russian-made Kornet-type anti-tank missile at a school bus which is the exact target and within eyesight of the terrorists. A sixteen year old student is critically injured and the driver is also injured. Within hours Hamas claims responsibility for the attack and also declares a ceasefire for all parties to commence at 11pm. Are you kidding me? You can’t make this stuff up. Can they be so perverse as to think they can fire missiles at children and then just stop and insist that Israel not hit back? They intentionally target civilians and believe it is their religious duty to kill every Jew eventually. It is stated clearly in their Charter.(What part of obliterate don’t we understand?) Yet, they continue to demand that the world punish Israel. If you wrote a novel with such a storyline no one would find it credible.
Why do the nations rage, ​​And the people plot a vain thing? Psalm 2:1
You may have heard about some Muslim group or other calling for a “day of rage”. It happens a lot in Israel. Lately it has been all the rage, if you will excuse my pun, in places like Egypt, Jordan, Syrian, Libya and half a dozen more countries. (Try Googling day of rage and count the countries.) It is an expanding phenomena that is spinning out of control. So, Psalm 2 clearly sees our day. The nations rage because they hate Israel.
It is a vain thing on two levels. One, it is in vain, because the plot will fail. Second, it is vain in the sense of vanity. The arrogance and self importance of the enemies of Israel is breathtaking in its scope. As we have pointed out many times from Psalm 83, the plotters’ real enemy is God Himself. They can’t get to Him, so they try to kill His people. Remember that this will include Christians just as much as Jews. Israel is the little satan and America is the big one. There is a common saying among the terrorist Muslims: “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”

Open your eyes America; wake up and stand up and speak up!

Oh, and you might want to read the rest of Psalm 2….

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom
Why do the nations rage, ​​And the people plot a vain thing? ​​The kings of the earth set themselves, ​​And the rulers take counsel together, ​​Against Yehovah and against His Anointed, saying, ​​”Let us break Their bonds in pieces ​​And cast away Their cords from us.” ​​He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; ​​Yehovah shall hold them in derision. ​​Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, ​​And distress them in His deep displeasure: ​​”Yet I have set My King ​​On My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: Yehovah​​ has said to Me, ​’​You are My Son, ​​Today I have begotten You. ​​Ask of Me, and I will give You ​​The nations for Your inheritance, ​​And the ends of the earth for Your possession. ​​You shall break them with a rod of iron; ​​You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ​​Now therefore, be wise, O kings; ​​Be instructed, you judges of the earth. ​​Serve Yehovah with fear, ​​And rejoice with trembling. ​​Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, ​​And you perish in the way, ​​When His wrath is kindled but a little. ​​Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

Nakba Means Catastrophe

1 04 2011

Israel E-Card Volume 5 Issue 7

Topic #1  Facebook Used for Palestinian Intifada

Many Christians are aware of the Facebook page that was taken down after 350,000 users “liked” it. It was calling for violent resistance in Israel. Immediately the terrorist sympathizers put up several new pages. What most in the West don’t know, however, is the real purpose behind these pages.

There is a blanket call for millions of Muslims to converge on Israel on May 15, Nakba Day (in the Arab sphere). It is observed each year on the anniversary of the day Israel became a nation in 1948. To us Zionists, it the day God restored Israel in fulfillment of His covenant promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But to the Muslims, it is Catastrophe Day.

This is no light matter. It could be the start of the next war. Millions are called to martyrdom to reclaim “their” land.

The propaganda is overwhelming as they completely rewrite history to claim that Israel forced them out of their homes and lands. History is clear that the leaders of the Arab nations who invaded Israel at that time called for the people to leave temporarily while the armies destroyed the Jews and drove Israel into the Sea. Israel received legal title to the land by the UN vote: Resolution 181 Approves the Creation of Israel, the Jewish State 11-29-47 . Israel accepted the plan but the Arabs did not. When the British left, Israel declared her independence on May 14, 1948. The next day five Arab armies invaded.        PRAY FOR ISRAEL MAY 15, 2011.

Topic #2  Palestinian Authority Incitement Exposed

Palestinian Media Watch has release a report of the incitement on PA TV three weeks before the murder of the Fogel family in Itamar, Israel recently (featured on my blog on 3-15-11). Palestinian government run TV ran a program “Martyrs” which was a tribute to terrorists who had killed Israelis down through the years. One such had murdered three teens in Itamar in May 2002. The video was broadcast several times a day for four days. In America, we call that copycat killing.

Does This Apply Today?     Not one of the men who saw my glory and the miraculous signs I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times– not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. Numbers 14:22-23

Ps 83 War Before Gog & Magog

22 03 2011

Earthquakes, nuclear threats, global economic meltdown and the crisis in Libya certainly have the world’s attention. However, don’t lose sight of what is emerging in your peripheral vision. Remember Egypt? The referendum there last week produced profound implications for the future demise of Egypt.

For several years we have warned of a local war against Israel (soon to come)  primarily by the inner circle of nations with borders near or touching Israel. Egypt and Jordan’s peace agreements with Israel effectively blocked the prophecy of Psalm 83. Now, however, Egypt is sliding into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood. Jordan is also in crisis. Therefore, we see this war is not far off.

Recently we have discovered an amazing comparison between Psalm 83 and the Gog/Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39. None of the countries listed in Psalm 83 are listed with Gog. Also, the first are mainly Arab Muslims and the second outer circle of nations are mainly non-Arab Muslims. They will be led by Turkey, Iran, Libya and Sudan. We conclude that Israel must be the victor of the first war leaving the immediately surrounding nations effectively stripped of power.

Israel may even expand its territory at that time to include the original land promised by God in Genesis 15:18 On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates.

Stay tuned, it is starting to get interesting. Watch Jordan and Syria.

Radicalizing or Radicals Rising?

7 03 2011

Radicals Rising Leads to Sunset Over Cairo

A serious media mistake is routinely using the term “radicalizing” to explain jihad. “Radicals rising” is a more accurate term. DEBKAfile’s sources report that large sums of Iranian petrodollars have reached the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and radicalized its message to the Egyptian people. It is true that Iran’s propaganda is a radicalized message, but it finds ready acceptance in young Muslim minds because of generations of indoctrination.
It is beyond the Western mind’s frame of reference to accept that Islamists hold their position logically from the beginning. Since we are the product of a Judeo/Christian heritage, Islamic jihad doesn’t make sense. We are taught to love our enemies, they are taught to kill their enemies (which by the way is defined as all non-Muslims and apostate Muslims). Psalm 83 (below) clearly declares their opposition to the God of Israel.

Entire generations of young Muslims have been taught from pre-school to hate and kill Jews and Christians. That is when they were radicalized, not between weeks four and five of the Egyptian revolution (or fill in any other Muslim revolt). Koranic basic doctrine teaches that chaos and destruction are the means of overthrowing the infidels or as in Egypt’s case, the apostate Westernized Muslim states. The fundamental Islamic prophecy of the last days requires chaos and destruction to usher in the final Caliph and conquest of the whole world.

Therefore, what we have is radicals rising up to fulfill the apocalyptic vision. It is logically within the literal reading of their holy texts. Yet, the media persists in feigning shock when what they insisted was a democracy movement suddenly “became radicalized”. It is the only conclusion that makes sense to the naive Western humanist. Everything the media believes rejects the idea of anyone actually choosing to die for their god. It does not compute, therefore they were “radicalized” somehow. Even the Ft. Hood shooter must have been “radicalized” because he could not possibly believe in such radical jihad all by himself.

The 9-11 suicide jihadists were not mysteriously radicalized while standing in line at the airport. They worked hard and prepared for a long time on an unthinkable plot to hijack airplanes and fly them into skyscrapers. To us it was unthinkable; to them it was brilliant and perfectly logical.

The truth is this. It is not the “bad” Muslims rising up, but faithful literalist Muslims doing what their imams are preaching every Friday at the mosques. Good Muslims are faithful, bad Muslims (from their viewpoint) are Westernized or modernized and are therefore unfaithful and even apostate.

Pray for the Muslim hordes to turn from the god of Islam to find Yehovah, God of Israel and Yeshua haMeshiach (Jesus the Messiah), the Son of God.

Consider the contrast between the nature of Islam and the nature of our Judeo/Christian heritage.

Nature of Islamic Heritage:

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5 NKJV).

Nature of Judeo/Christian Heritage:

If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever (1 Corinthians 13:3-8 NLT).

Pope Bans Yahweh

1 03 2011

YHVH

Topic #1  Are You Kidding Me?

The pagan god of Islam is splashing his name everywhere and the Pope bans the real God’s name? That is sooo Third Century. The Roman church continued the tradition of the Pharisees to ban the vocalization of the personal name of God: Yehovah. In August of 2008, the Vatican officially banned the name again: As an expression of the infinite greatness and majesty of God, it was held to be unpronounceable and hence was replaced during the reading of sacred Scripture by means of the use of an alternate name: “Adonai,” which means “Lord,” the Vatican letter said. Similarly, Greek translations of the Bible used the word “Kyrios” and Latin scholars translated it to “Dominus”; both also mean Lord. (recent Vatican position against Israel here).

I am on a mission to restore usage of the name Yehovah (or Jehovah or Yahweh, I’m not picky). Every suicide bomber shouts the same thing before exploding. The gullible and naïve media mistranslate it as “god is great” when he (or she) actually says the personal name of Islam’s god is “the greatest”. Isn’t it about time we wake up and exalt the Name of our God Yehovah and His only begotten Son’s name Yeshua?

Topic #2  Egypt Explodes—Israel Receives Rain

As the Middle East dominoes fall, rain is falling in Israel in spite of dire predictions. One fresh report says: Israel has “been blessed by the plentiful rains that continue to fall, even as the first wildflowers are appearing and birds are singing again.”

Surprisingly, at least for now, Israel seems like a little island of tranquility in the midst of the Middle Eastern storm of Islamic violence, hatred and death, as Muslim brothers slaughter each other.  I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms…every one by the sword of his brother (Haggai 2:21).

As dictators fall, the God of Israel is in control. Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding (Daniel 2:20-21).

And Jehovah descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of Jehovah. And Jehovah passed by before him, and proclaimed, Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth (Exodus 34:5-6).

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? (Proverbs 30:4).





Radical Islam, Psalm 83 & the Palestinian Flag

26 02 2011

Nations are falling like dominoes to radical Islam. Is the Palestinian flag destined to fly over the heartland of Israel? Will Biblical Judea and Samaria become the 22nd Arab state? The irresistible force of radical Islam is about to collide with the immovable ROCK of Israel, not the nation of Israel, but the God of Israel.

What could possibly reverse the revolutionary momentum that is building in the Middle East? God has already revealed His plan. It is not secret. Israel’s enemies indeed scheme and plot in secret, but God Who knows the end from the beginning has recorded exactly what will transpire in Psalm 83. It has been sitting there in the Bible for over 3,000 years. It is only now in the 21rst Century that everything is in place for its prophetic fulfillment.

Psalm 83 lists each country by name. It includes every country that directly borders Israel. The resulting war will be impossible for Israel to win without supernatural intervention from God. Yet win they will and confound the earth.

That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain by supernatural means, crushing to dust the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God has shown Your Majesty what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain. Daniel 2:45





Israel’s Army Needs God More Than Tanks

24 02 2011

This amazing story is all over Israeli news services. For a high official in the Israel Defense Forces to declare the need for God is nothing short of a Divine move on his heart. May it spread to the entire army. My thanks to Barry Segal for bringing it to my attention. His news site is linked at the end of the story.

IDF DEPUTY CHIEF: ISRAEL’S ARMY NEEDS FAITH IN GOD MORE THAN TANKS: The events currently shaking the Arab world “were ordained from above” by a guiding hand, Israel Defense Forces Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Naveh said on Sunday. Naveh added the Israeli army needed faith in God now more than its supply of planes and tanks. Naveh called Israel an island of calm in the storm of the Middle East, turmoil that had not been foreseen by intelligence officials despite their good work. “But it was ordained from above,” he said, “and we don’t know where it will lead, but it’s clear to us that there is a hand from above.” (Ha’aretz)

“Pray this kind of faith and recognition of G-d’s hand over the affairs of Israel will grow and spread.” (Barry Segal JNNNews.com) (READ MORE)

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of Yehovah our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm (Psalm 20:7 ).

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek Yehovah! (Isaiah 31:1).





The Muslim Caliphate and the Psalm 83 War

19 02 2011

The Muslim Caliphate and The Psalm 83 War: The Domino Theory Ends Here

Middle East Dominoes was the subject of my January 16 essay.

We are now seeing the dominoes falling at a dizzying pace. Where will it lead? Where will it stop? The final result will be the resurrection of the Islamic Caliphate. The entire Islamic Empire will be revived from Indonesia to Morocco, and from Turkey and the “stans” to the Sudan and Somalia. This will transpire in just a few years.

How can such a monumental event occur so fast? There are two forces, one physical, one spiritual. There is a physical theory of dominoes falling called “domino amplifier” which has proven that each domino can be larger than the previous. This can be demonstrated by starting with a normal one and, in 29 steps, knocking down the last one as tall as a skyscraper. See Domino Amplifier (scroll down to Article 1.68 on this link).

Thus what has already begun in Gaza, Lebanon, Tunisia and now Egypt, will continue to amplify until the fall of the Arab world to radical Islam and the revived Caliphate.

The second force is spiritual. Radical Islam is above all else a spiritual movement. By this I mean that it is a political ideology on steroids. If Communism was not godless it may have conquered the world. Ideas are not enough. But ideas with fanatical allegiance to an apocalyptic deity will indeed threaten the entire world. Now couple these facts with the Biblical narrative.

Psalm 83 is a core prophecy that must be understood. The first five verses explain the motive of these enemies: hatred of the God of the Bible who is worshipped by both Christians and Jews. Since God is out of reach, they must indirectly attack His chosen people Israel, even to the extent “that the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5).

The Psalm continues by listing the actual attacking countries. The prophecy stands alone, but is even more profound when compared with a more common prophecy of the Gog and Magog War recorded in Ezekiel 38. This later war also lists the countries involved. The amazing fact is that none of the Psalm 83 protagonist countries are listed in Ezekiel’s prophecy. This leads to the conclusion that Israel actually wins the Psalm 83 war and occupies much of the surrounding territory. The first Israel land promise to Abraham was “from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18)

Another distinction between the prophecies is that the Psalm 83 nations in the closer ring around the land of Israel are all Arab Muslim nations. The nations remaining are all non-Arab Muslims. It is this larger circle of nations that fulfills the Biblical antichrist prophecies. The Islamic Empire will rise again and be governed under Sharia Law by the Caliphate. This revived empire will be ruled by the Islamic messianic figure called the Mahdi (or Twelfth Imam).

My friend Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim and former terrorist, expressed the process clearly in his excellent book: God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the  Bible (p.81; Top Executive Media, 2008). “Biblically, the Empire of the Antichrist will not be a new empire; rather it will be the revival of a previously great empire that will have suffered what the Bible calls a ‘fatal head wound’. (Revelation 13:3) But the wound will be healed and the empire will be revived from the dead as it were: ‘And the beast [Antichrist Empire] which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain and his fatal wound healed. And the whole world was amazed and followed after the beast.” (Revelation 13:2-3) “Today the Caliphate exists only in the desires of hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide who want to revive this beast that was slain March 3, 1924. The last Caliphate – the Ottoman Caliphate – was officially abolished by the first President of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The abolition of the Caliphate is profoundly significant for our study. For it was on this day that the Islamic Empire, led by a sitting Caliph for over fourteen hundred years suffered a fatal head wound. The position of “head of state” of the Islamic Empire was severed.”

The part that jumps out in Walid’s quote is the interpretation of the fatal head wound. By applying that verse to the line of Caliphs, we come full circle to our conclusion. The Middle East dominoes are falling. It is now unstoppable until the rise of the final Caliph and his Caliphate over the Muslim world and however many other nations that succumb. Ignorance and apathy are blinding many from this truth. It is time for the West to open their eyes to the inevitable realities. (READ MORE)
