Jerusalem Update

I took a week off for Thanksgiving last week and I am in catch up mode. I am reading a book about Jerusalem and very intrigued at the historical progress of the city and her prophetical importance. This update is part of the message I will give in December. This is only part of the message, hope you will follow this!
Prophecy Update: November 30, 2018

I am going to focus my update on Jerusalem and the place that God puts the city for the world. The prophetic progress of history brings us to the place where Jerusalem has become the most important issue of the day. It is the center of many of the conflicts that the nations of the world articulate. Many nations are in lock step on this issue. They say that the conflict of the Palestinian people with Israel is because no two state solution exists. God says that there is only a One State Solution to the problems of the world. Satan has the world in the throes of his deception, he has convinced the nations to solve the problem with a two state solution.

President Donald Trump is working on a peace deal for the Middle East and it will be a two state solution. Russia has just waded in on the issue as they have in the past. They have reached out to Hamas, the terrorist group, to try to get peace talks going on a two state solution. The UN just had a conference where an employee of CNN preached on the evils of Israel for the whole world to hear. At the same time another country announced that they are moving their embassy to Jerusalem.

The scriptures are clear about our relationship with Jerusalem. Psalm 122 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.” I love this promise and hope that all of you will pray this prayer for what God is doing in our day. Psalm 125:2, “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever.” What a promise from God. Are you God’s people? Then you can pray this as a promise. Psalm 128:5, “The LORD bless you from Zion, And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.” I have seen the prosperity of Jerusalem. It is fascinating to see what God has done the past 100 years. Jerusalem has gone from a small, inconsequential city to a major city of the world. The statistics are amazing. We live in special times that most people do not appreciate or have knowledge of! Psalm 132: 13-14, “For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.” The fullest expression of this promise will be experienced when the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven. In the millennium we will see this partially fulfilled when Jesus builds the temple prophesied about in Ezekiel 40-48!

The promise from God that most bears on our day is in Zechariah 12:3, “It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.” Today we see the nations of the world gathered against Jerusalem and Israel at the UN. The UN just had a conference which is the epitome of this sin talked about in Zechariah. God has made Jerusalem a heavy stone by making it the capital of Israel. The world does not accept this.

Israel made Jerusalem its capital on July 30th 1980 when they signed into law the Basic Law regarding Jerusalem. The world said this was a violation of international law. When Israel conquered Jerusalem in the Six Day war, they began fulfilling the Word of the Lord regarding Jerusalem. God prophesied that after a time of expulsion for the Jews, He would bring them back to their capital. It happened in 1967. The world at the time rejected what God had done and wrote an international law—UN Resolution 242. This resolution has been used to try to force Israel from all territory gained in the war. This would include Jerusalem. Israel will never leave Jerusalem, her government the Knesset is in Jerusalem, her supreme court, the Prime Ministers house, and the Holocaust Museum documenting the attempt to annihilate Jews from the earth. Israel will not leave Jerusalem and they are going to keep the city undivided and under their control. This is what God wants and Satan wants to destroy Israel.

Since 1967 and 1980, the world has moved towards pushing Israel out of Jerusalem and the USA has moved closer to the Israeli position. Why? Because of all of the Christians in America that love Israel and the Word of God! President Ronald Reagan said of Res.242, “We remain convinced that Jerusalem must remain undivided but its final status should be decided through negotiations.” (Sept.1 1982) When Israel was getting ready to sign the Basic Law in 1980, the UN prepared a sneak attack on Israel by passing UN Resolution 476 which says, “all legislative and administration measures and actions taken by Israel the occupying power which purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal validity and constitute a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.” Now notice what has happened in the USA.
Res.476—6/30/80 USA abstained
Res.478—8/20/80 USA abstained
Res.58-292 5/6/2004 USA against
Res.2334 12/23/2016 USA abstained
The news wires had this story in November: “US vetoes UN’s annual condemnation of Israel.” The United States for the first time voted against an annual U.N. resolution condemning Israeli control over the Golan Heights at the world body. The decision by the United States to change its stance on the resolution, after previously voting for years to abstain, may be part of a broader shift in American policy towards the Golan Heights. Vetoes of other resolutions may become more common.
The resolution was adopted in a U.N. General Assembly committee by a vote of 151 to 2, with only the U.S. and Israel voting against measure, while other 14 countries abstained on Friday. The resolution, known as “The Occupied Syrian Golan,” is a non-binding measure that is voted on by the U.N. General Assembly’s Third Committee every year that condemns the “illegality of the decision” by Israel “to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan.”

America officially changed everything regarding Israel when we moved our embassy there earlier this year. The days of voting against Gods will regarding Jerusalem and the Golan Heights are over. Yet, they are only over as long as President Trump is president. The rest of our government is against the President and Christians and Jews who believe that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the center of the world! Wikipedia had this about that decision:

Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was rejected by a majority of world leaders. The United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting on 7 December where 14 out of 15 members condemned Trump’s decision, but the motion was vetoed by the United States.[5] Britain, France, Sweden, Italy and Japan were among the countries who criticized Trump’s decision at the emergency meeting.[6] Other countries supported the move: Guatemala said that they will follow up and also relocate their embassy; Paraguay, the Czech Republic, Romania and Honduras said that they were considering relocation.

This has heated up in recent days. “CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill spoke on Wednesday at the opening meeting of the United Nations commemoration of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People where he urged for the elimination of Israel.” I watched the speech from Wednesday and was horrified that at the UN someone could ask for the elimination of the Jews! Hill said things like, ‘I just came from Palestine and I did not drink Jewish water as he drank New York water—condemned the Basic Law regarding the nation state of Israel being Jewish and Hebrew being the official language. He railed against the settlement movement. Ezekiel 36-37 tells us that the settlement program is God’s work and He is moving the Jews back to Israel as He promised!
What Hill said next should sends shivers down our spines but he only is saying what Satan wants. He said, “what we need is powerful, counterintuitive, dangerous, and courageous words,…. we need more than words, …..Hill then encouraged those in the international sphere to engage in boycotts, divestments, and sanctions against Israel until which point it allows a Palestinian State on the pre-1967 borders. Hill ended his speech saying, “We have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words, but to commit to political action, grass-roots action, local action and international action that will give us what justice requires, and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.” ‘From the river to the sea’ is the phrase used to teach people that they are really for the elimination of Israel from the face of the earth! The consistent theme of the UN meetings were that Israel and the USA are the problem, not the terrorism from the Muslim groups. Anti-Semitism does not exist in their world.
On Tuesday, during an interview with The Washington Post, President Trump declared, “We wish to remain in the Middle East region for our interests and for Israel.” It is the attitude of the President that is the problem in the world. The Post went on to say: “It is once again apparent that President Trump has a deeply felt and unwavering tie to the Jewish state and the safety and viability of her citizens. His profuse commitment to Israel, and thus the Jewish people, is singular among Presidents. It is astoundingly genuine.”

The problem for Satan in the world today are all of the Christians and Jews who support Israel and the return. The return is to all of the land of Israel and so Israel will get all of the land. This is infuriating to a world run by people who are controlled by Satan. Thank God that CNN had the sense to fire Lamont Hill but they are still pushing the anti-land of Israel, God ordained return to the land. Eph.2:1 says of the people hating on God’s control of history that they are dead in their sins and trespasses because they follow the ‘prince of the power of the air’ that is Satan. Pray for these people to come to know Jesus and bow before the king of the universe who alone has the right to give the land of Israel back to Israel for the end days!

Prophecy Updates

Gaza Terror

Prophecy Update: November 16, 2018

I have a red alert app on my phone that goes off every time a missile is shot at Israel. On Monday the 12th of November my phone was going off a lot, in fact over 400 missiles fell on Israel. I have the app so that I can pray for Israel when the enemies of God rain down destruction and terrorism on the citizens of Israel. It is always a little bit shocking to see the news the next day. The blame Israel crowd is in full attack mode. Check out these headlines that highlight the problem with the news. They make it seem like Israel attacked Gaza without provocation, as if Israel started attacking first.

CNN: “Biggest Israel-Gaza firefight since 2014 ends in ceasefire.”
NY Times: “Cost of Botched Gaza Spy Mission? Israel’s Back on Brink of War.”
Washington Post: “Israel, Gaza trade rockets and airstrikes as botched undercover operation sets off new conflict.”

One of the problems with the news is that they never give you the context in which things are happening. Hamas is dedicated like the Nazis to finish the final solution. They want all Jews in the world dead. What happened a week ago Monday is one of the main reasons Hamas launched this attack. The USA reasserted sanctions on Iran and Israel launched a wave of cyber-attacks against Iran. These attacks are a message for Hamas and all who support Iran.

“In a series of tweets, Telecommunication Minister Mohammad Javad Azeri Jahromi blamed Israel for the attack, saying it targeted Iran’s communications infrastructure and that Iran would sue for the cyberattack via international bodies.
“’The Zionist regime, with its dark record of using cyber weapons such as Stuxnet computer virus, launched a cyberattack on Iran on Monday to harm the country’s communication infrastructures,’ Jahromi said in a tweet on Monday, adding that ‘thanks to the vigilance of [Iranian] technical teams, it [Israel] returned empty-handed.’”

Israel is always several steps ahead of her enemies and this is the case here with Hamas and Iran. Israel had intel on Hamas and what they are doing so they sent some special forces into Gaza to deal with the next attack. Hamas hurried there attack and had their hats handed to them.
“According to Iran’s Tasnim news agency, Jahromi’s deputy Hamid Fattahi said that more details of the alleged Israeli cyber strikes would be made public in the coming days. Last week, General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of the military unit in charge of combating sabotage, said that President Hassan Rouhani’s cell phone had been tapped, and would be replaced with a more secure device.”

So Israel tapped Rouhani phone—brilliant! Israel knows when and where with Hamas, Hamas is desperate. Israel responded with a great deal of destruction on Hamas and their terror infrastructure. David Rubin, former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, on mounting tensions between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. He said, we are marching toward war with Hamas and when will it happen?
I think that the ongoing war with Israel from the Arab/Muslim factions dedicated to the destruction of Israel are part of the Psalm 83 war. This Psalm summarizes all of the wars since 1948. The description of Psalm 83:4, “come let us wipe them out as a nation so that the name of Israel will be remembered no more” adequately describes the charters of the groups, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Palestinian Authority. (there are many other groups that could be added to this list).

All week articles have been coming out about the attack on Israel. Here is one from Thursday.

‘Islamic Jihad released pictures on Thursday of the new rocket with a heavy warhead, which they announced had been fired toward Ashkelon during the escalation of violence earlier this week. The IDF has been concerned about heavy mortars which could carry 150-200 kilogram warheads, and which would inflict heavy damage on the Israeli home front. On Thursday, the group released images showing at least 12 small, locally produced improvised rockets made from a large metal canister.’
One of the problems for Israel is that Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and every cease fire is a sham. Hamas just wants more time to rearm and Israel wants peace. Israel never gets peace because Hamas never changes its goals. They train their children to believe that the cause of destroying Israel is more important than anything in the world. So you can imagine how the Jews living in southern Israel feel. They get attacked and then there is a lull until the next attack. Why? Because Israel never eliminates the problem. Notice that I underlined Ashkelon for a reason. It is named in a prophecy along with Gaza.
Several years ago the world watched as all the Jews in Gaza were forcibly removed from their homes and their land … even those buried in cemeteries were forcibly dug up from their graves and removed from Gaza. This ‘uprooting’ of the Jews from Gaza which the whole world watched on the news may be a much more ‘significant’ prophetic event than most realize …
Zephaniah 2:4-5 “For Gaza shall be forsaken, And Ashkelon desolate; They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, And Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, The nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you O Canaan, land of the Philistines (Palestinians): “I [God] will destroy you So there shall be no inhabitant.”

GOD wants all in Israel and all people on Earth to know what will help trigger this fierce and terrible anger: Gaza!! He warns, ‘Gaza will be forsaken’… her inhabitants (the children of Israel) ‘uprooted’ and ‘driven out’ . . .Judah was given this land in Joshua 15 and the world has spoken. President Bush said to the Jews get out and they left Gaza. Big mistake!— and all Israel has gotten from the goodwill gesture is war. This goodwill gesture I call sin. God does not want the land of Israel divided! Period! Judah needs to be restored to Israel because Judah is the lion of Israel!! They need to start acting like a lion soon or a lot of people are going to die in the cities of southern Israel. God says He is going to destroy Gaza. For one-day in the future, a remnant of the tribe of Judah will once again peacefully inhabit and prosper in that precious land God promised and gave to them.
Zephaniah 2:6-7 “The seacoast shall be pastures, With shelters for shepherds and folds for flocks. The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; They (the remnant of the house of Judah) shall feed their flocks there (coastlands of Gaza);In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. The Lord their God will intervene for them, and return their captives.”
Some import things to consider as we study these Bible prophecies and watch the news …
– Hamas is directed, trained, and equipped by Russia and Iran.
– If you do your homework you will find Israel discovered Russian Spetsnaz (special operations) forces infiltrated Gaza soon after Israel pulled out several years ago.
– When we made Israel pull out of Gaza, God sent us a hurricane that destroyed New Orleans. (Katrina 2005)
– What will God do to America if we do not support Israel in her fight against Hamas and Hezbollah and Russia and Iran???!!!
– Genesis 6:11 says, “Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence.” If you look on Blueletter Bible, you will find that the word violence is pronounced in Hebrew ‘Hamas’ (strongs #2555). We are living in a time of violence like the Bible predicts since Jesus said the last days would be like the days of Noah.
Since Iran and Russia also support Hezbollah, check out this article from Jewish news network. “In South America, the border region linking Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay is known as the “Triple Frontier.” The area is mostly under the control of Hezbollah and its local supporters. In this Wild West of sorts, the terrorist organization smuggles drugs, runs casinos, launders money and more virtually unimpeded.” Breitbart had this: “State Warns: Hezbollah Flooding Peru, Bolivia with Terrorist Assets.” 14 Nov 2018—
Many articles are coming out about the work of Islamic groups in South America and it shows a pattern. They enter the USA, work for La Raza and other groups designed to bring terrorism to the US. La Raza wants to reclaim most of the southwest for their own nation. Calexit is one of their strategies. The FBI many years ago reported that the Russians were working with these groups to foster violence in America. China has joined in on the act. The warning came today a day after State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert revealed that “Iran spends nearly $1 billion annually on terrorism, including $700 million on the Lebanese-based wing of Hezbollah, heavily involved in drug trafficking and money laundering activities in the Western Hemisphere, mainly Latin America.”
With the caravan arriving on our southern border with people with the stated goal of invading our borders—America needs to understand that as you do to Israel it will be done to you. If we support Israel taking out Hamas in Gaza and taking out Hezbollah with Iran in the Golan heights, God will protect our borders. If we let the congress get bamboozled to compromise this truth, we will be judged harshly. The forces are lining up against Israel in the United States congress, those who oppose all who love Israel. Pres.Trump ordered Ambassador Haley to condemn the UN again today. Haley will stand up for Israeli rights in the Golan Heights—praise God. The Jerusalem Post had this headline: HALEY: U.S. TO OPPOSE UNGA CALL FOR ISRAEL TO RETURN GOLAN HEIGHTS TO SYRIA. Once again our US Ambassador is doing what is right in the face of the UN General Assembly anti-Semitism! Pray that Jesus will save many—pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Jerusalem and the Election

Prophecy Update: November 8, 2018

In light of the midterm elections, I want to talk about Jerusalem. The battle for the hearts and minds of the Americans can be described as a battle between two opposing forces. On the one side is the group that holds to the Judeo Christian ethic as the worldview of America. On the other side is the secular humanist who has an anti-God, anti-Revelation view of history and ethics.

The Democratic party platform has eliminated God from America. March 15, 2017 the New York Post had this article:
“Democrats Still Haven’t Faced Their God Problem. And over the last couple of decades, as its base became more educated, less religious and more urban, this problem has only grown. And the divide has seemingly sapped Democrats’ ability to communicate to religious Americans. Especially if those people of faith are white, according to Brad Chism, a longtime and respected Democratic strategist based in Mississippi. “And that problem extends to the national media, who by and large are mostly Democrats, meaning you have these powerful forces who do not understand more than half of the people in this country,” he said.
Over the last few decades the Democratic party has pushed Christians out of the party. The article went on to say:
“Democrats were hugely successful across the country by solidifying their base. In the process, they have pushed away religious voters not simply by ignoring them but by actively repelling them with accusations of bigotry and backwardness.”

Earlier this year this divide between Democrats and Christians/Jews exploded over the embassy move to Jerusalem. Consider this article from May:
How the embassy move widens the partisan divide over Israel: Tellingly, not a single Democratic member of Congress attended. In America, popular support for Israel appears to be rising among Republicans, but is falling rapidly among Democrats. That decline is also found among younger American Jews, and even among younger American evangelicals. Since coming into office, Trump has sided more openly with Israel on a number of occasions. Most recently, he announced the U.S. was withdrawing from the Iran deal and seeking to reimpose sanctions on Iran. Trump’s move was welcomed by Netanyahu, but was met with criticism from the Democratic leadership and from European allies.

This Monday, the United States of America took another step in supporting Israel by taking the next step in sanctions against Iran. If Democrats were in charge, Israel would be in a lot of trouble right now. Why did God put the Republicans in charge? Because the table was not set for the future wars coming in the Middle East. God has been protecting Israel while it prepares for these wars and with Americas help, they are ready to fight. If Democrats were in office, none of these things would have been possible.
First, if the Democrats were in charge, the Iran deal would still be in place and Iran would be getting millions of dollars from the US to help them with their march to war with Israel.
Second, if the Democrats were in charge the embassy would have never moved and there would never have been a declaration that Jerusalem was the eternal capital of Israel.
Third, behind these events are spiritual battles. It is the Lord who establishes kings and brings Kings down. Now that the House of Representatives has been taken from the Republicans there are two groups who are really happy: Those who wish to destroy evangelical support for Israel, and those who wish to destroy Israel.
The Republican Party has a group that want the same things that the Democrats want. They want the evangelical vote but nothing of what evangelicals believe. They want abortion, globalism, and socialism. The ethics of the Republican establishment are driven by secular humanism. So the war within the Republican Party has been going on for many years. It is now at an all-time high. With the Democrats winning the House, these Republicans will side with the Democrats for socialism and anti-God, antisemitism, anti-ethical positions.

What can we expect from the events of the election this week? Consider this article from today, Wed.11/7/18:
“Trump’s free ride from Congress just ended: Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives, according to calls by multiple media outlets — which means their days of standing by just helplessly watching President Donald Trump are gone.
The party’s House majority will allow them to launch subpoena-powered investigations into the president’s finances, Russian interference, administration ethics scandals, and so much more — and to halt the conservative legislative agenda in its tracks. They could even demand Trump’s long-concealed tax returns.”

I believe that Donald Trump is a man who will fight. He will not allow the Democrats to impeach him. He will start a war that we have never seen before. He is not like the Bush’s who will help the Democrats to take down the president. This is a spiritual war and this man Trump is the perfect tip of the spear to bring the Americans to their knees. The ariticle went on to say:
“Yet Trump is Trump, and he loves confrontation. Meanwhile, Democrats distrust the president and dearly hope to usher him out of office as soon as possible. On some matters like funding the government and raising the debt ceiling, though, they will have to figure out a way to work together — though getting there may not be easy. The most imminent consequence of a Democratic House takeover is that there will be investigations galore. Democrats now have the power to make Trump’s life hell.”

I’d say so!! The Democrats have advocated violence against Republicans and the president. They also have hatred in their hearts towards Christians and Jews. The Hill had this to say: “If Dems win the House, expect ‘worst of times’ to follow: We are a nation simultaneously embracing the idea of American exceptionalism and resurrecting the ideas of our Founding Fathers, while at the same time embracing the kind of socialist ideas that once caused half of Europe to fall behind what Winston Churchill described as an Iron Curtain.”

This quote perfectly describes the problem in America. We are a divided nation and the anger is overflowing from one side. The leftists want blood to run in the streets just like they did in the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, and a whole host of other communist nations. The Soros group funds the violence and news outlets cover up the sins of the socialists. Did you see any major news outlets report that the Kavanaugh accuser lied and admitted it? No you won’t because they have an agenda and it is to destroy the constitution and the American way of life. Why? Because it is spiritual warfare!! Do you think that Satan is upset at all of the missionary funding that comes out of the USA? Do you think Satan is upset that the most pro-Israel nation on the earth is once again supporting Israel fully? Do you think Satan wants to destroy evangelical churches who stand firm in all of the Bible, the 66 books of the Bible being the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant, without error, and proud of it? Satan has a willing population to do his bidding and it is the progressive left! Pray that God will save some of them from their losing strategy, being on the losing team. Team Satan will lose in the end!

The President tweeted this: “If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!”

Back to Jerusalem: God is very clear that the whole world will be against what He is doing in Jerusalem. America is in a good place supporting Israel the way we should. With the Democrats in control of the house, their motto will be ‘make America evil again.’ Pro-abortion, pro-Palestinian, Pro-communist/socialism, and pro-humanist ideology will now be pushed from the House. All of this will have an impact on Israel. The international pressure on the Democrats in the House will be unrelenting from those who wish to push the two state solution. They will push an agenda that will work in the Anti-Christ favor for the false peace deal coming in the future. This had to happen—unfortunately it is happening on our watch. What do you think will be the Lords response if the Democrats are successful pushing their agenda?
I believe with all of my heart that the prophecies of Ezekiel are going to be fulfilled in our life time. The world hates God and His move to bring Jews back to the Land and settle them in all of the land of Israel. The world is lined up to oppose this and that is why they hate Trump. He is the most supportive of the settlement movement in Israel. He proved it with the move of the embassy. Satan will now work to destroy that movement. Mahmoud Abbas is extremely happy today for the election results. He has an ally in Nancy Pelosi. His war can now proceed. But the result of the war will be destruction of the Palestinian Authority. It is the Psalm 83 war that is getting ready to commence.
Psalm 83 says, A Song, a Psalm of Asaph. O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still for behold, your enemies make an uproar, and those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, and conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.” Vs. 18 says, that they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.
When God fights this war with these nations, all of the world will see that God alone is responsible for bringing His people back. I cannot wait to see it happen!! I love our Lord and all that He does. This war will lead to the Gog-Magog war and hopefully we will be raptured out of here soon! Are you looking for the blessed hope? Are you praying for the Lords return?

Tensions that will lead to war!

Prophecy Update: November 2nd 2018

The past few weeks the conflict between Israel and her enemies has taken a turn for the worst. Part of the conflict that impacts Israel is the division that exists in the Muslim world. There are four current power centers in Islam. They are the states of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Egypt. Turkey is ruled by the dictator Erdogan and his vision is that all of Islam will turn to him as he seeks to reclaim the glories of the Ottoman Empire. Saudi Arabia is ruled by the House of Saud and they are the land where Muslims make pilgrimages because of Mecca, the center of Islam. All Muslims are required to make a pilgrimage to Mecca once in their lifetime. Iran is run by the Mullahs who give allegiance to the Ayatollahs. This small sect of Islam claims to be the true path for all Muslims. It is called Shia Islam while the other three states follow Sunni Islam. Last is Egypt, it is the land of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood claims to be the intellectual and spiritual guide for the rest of Islam.
One conflict that is receiving the majority of coverage from the media is the murder of a journalist named Jamal Khashoggi. He entered the Saudi embassy in Turkey on Oct.2nd and never came out. He went there to file papers for divorce so he could marry his current lover. A hit squad flew to Turkey to kill him.
America is in great conflict with Turkey and they are no longer an ally of the USA. Saudi Arabia has a relationship with the USA but they are not our friends. The relationship with Saudi Arabia has made a turn under Crown Prince Bin Salman. (I will call him MBS from now on) MBS has made overtures to Israel and changed the perception of the Saudi’s because of foreign policy considerations. The Saudi’s agreed with Israel that Iran is a threat to both the Saudi’s and Israel and they should cooperate with each other. This has made waves in the Muslim world. Some Muslims want to destroy MBS because of this concession. Saudi clerics have said that Israel deserves the land they live on. (this is a huge concession) Oman this week also made a concession for Israel. Consider this report:

OMAN SAYS TIME TO ACCEPT ISRAEL AFTER NETANYAHU HISTORIC VISIT, Jerusalem Post. In a speech he delivered at the IISS Manama Dialogue security summit in Bahrain, Omani Foreign Minister Yousuf bin Alawi said, “Israel is a state present in the region, and we all understand this. The world is also aware of this and maybe it is time for Israel to be treated the same [as other states] and to also bear the same obligations.” Bahrain’s foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa voiced support for Oman over the sultanate’s role in trying to secure Israeli-Palestinian peace, while Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said the kingdom believes the key to normalizing relations with Israel is the peace process.

Prior to Benjamin Netanyahu showing up in Oman, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with the Omani officials to discuss the peace treaty with the Israelis. The meetings did not go well. Why? The event in Turkey with the death of Kashoggi is related to the peace deal that Trump and his team are trying to put together. The bottom line is that most of the Muslim world does not want peace with Israel if it means that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Abbas went home and said this:

THE PLO ANNOUNCES THEY NO LONGER RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL TO EXIST AS A NATION,
The PLO Central Council decided to suspend its recognition of the state of Israel until it recognizes the state of Palestine at the pre-1967 lines with east Jerusalem as its capital, according to the Palestinian News Agency Wafa. FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The PLO has also decided to cut security as well as its economic ties with the state of Israel as set out in the 1994 Paris Economic Protocol. The decision taken on Monday night at the end of the two-day meeting in Ramallah.

Turkey is committed to destroying the relationship that Saudi Arabia has with both America and Israel. They do not want the peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinians do not want the peace treaty and they are committed to destroying anything the Trump Administration brings in the peace plan.
The Kashoggi assassination plays into the Turks hand because it gave them an issue to divide Saudi Arabia from the US and eventually Israel. The Saudi’s have a strategic partnership with the US and Israel on security issues because the threat of Iran. For Turkey to be the head of all of Islam, they need to destroy their top competitor, Saudi Arabia! Kashoggi is a US person (a special status) as well as a Saudi citizen, this can upset the apple cart as they say. The left will be in high gear trying to get Trump to punish the Saudi’s so they can ruin the relationship between the two countries. Make no mistake, this is designed to destroy Trump, Israel, and anyone who is not for globalism. Why is MBS so bad for Islam?

MBS has made reforms socially and religiously. Women have been helped by his changing of the laws and the Wahhabi Muslim movement in Saudi Arabia has been attacked by MBS. This upset Kashoggi and he wrote against the regime. Kashoggi is for the destruction of Israel, for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and for the destruction of the USA. The conflict with Turkey is not over and it is unclear how it will play out. One thing is clear, however it plays out, it will lead to the Gog-Magog war. With that in mind, Russia made big news with this headline.

The Jerusalem Post reported 10/31:
RUSSIA WARNS OF ‘PROVOCATION’ IN SYRIA, HINTS AT ISRAELI ‘HOT HEADS’ Then the ministry turned its attention to southwest Syria on the Golan border. It said that “Russian soldiers are monitoring the situation at six observation posts along the line of separation.” It was in this context that Moscow noted that the S-300 had been deployed to Syria. “In order to increase the level of security of the Russian military personnel, aviation flights and the protection of objects in Syria.”

This is a direct threat to Israel. So in the past week, Turkey, Russia, Iran, and the Palestinian Authority made direct threats at Israel. Israel is striking back. Consider this headline from 10/31:

TV report: Israel silent as Iran hit by computer virus more violent than Stuxnet: Tehran strategic networks attacked, Hadashot TV says, hours after Israel revealed it tipped off Denmark about Iran murder plot, and days after Rouhani’s phone was found bugged. Israeli officials are refusing to discuss what role, if any, they may have had in the operation, an Israeli TV report said Wednesday. On Sunday, Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran’s civil defense agency, said Tehran had neutralized a new version of Stuxnet, Reuters reported. The TV report noted that “behind the scenes lately, the Mossad,” under its director Yossi Cohen, has been “fighting a real shadow war.”

The pressure on Israel from Iran and Russia to her north will bring a war in the future. Until then, Israel is not going to stop attacking any moves by Iran to increase its ability to destroy Israel. Iran has two main strategies for the moment. The first is to continue to put pressure on Israel and bleed her ability to defend herself. The missiles that come from Gaza are meant to make Israel use its patriot missile system to shoot down the weapons fired at Israel. Every patriot missile is fifty thousand dollars. It is expensive to defend the nation of Israel. The second strategy is to make bases in Syria, Yemen, and the coast of Africa which Iran can attack Israel. Israel is attacking in Syria but now Russia has moved in to stop Israel.
To make matters more complicated, another nation has decided to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Brazil! This is the headline:

“Brazil Bolsonaro Moving Embassy To Jerusalem”

This is huge news and comes on the eve of the USA revealing the peace plan for the Middle East. Next week, the USA will reveal its peace plan to Israeli leaders and I am not very happy about this. First, I think all peace plans for the Middle East will end up in failure because all of them have included dividing the state of Israel. God is very clear, the land of Israel is His land and all of it is being given to Israel, not other nations. No one has the right or authority to give away any of the land. Period!! Second, the election is bound to end up in the increase of division for America. We are being judged by the Lord and only repentance will save us. The nation has a large portion of people who have rejected the Word of the Lord. They have rejected what God did by giving us a president who stands for Israel and the Prolife movement. This president has done more for Israel and the Prolife movement than any other president in history and in less time. Has the nation repented?

A nation divided against itself cannot stand. This is where we are at in our history. Trump was blamed for the massacre in Pittsburgh where 11 people were killed in a synagogue. The hatred of Israel and Jews has been increasing in Europe and now it has hit America. The churches who demean Jews had a conference, Christ at the Checkpoint, and they advocated attacks on Israel thru economic blockades. Here is why the President and all who support Israel are hated in America, because Satan hates Israel and anyone who loves her. The Bible is clear, they who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed.
I am praying that God protects the President from those who oppose him, from those who hate Christians and Jews, and that God will protect the President from himself. This peace deal is a fools errand. I already see the Lord moving to stop this move. I hope that America will stand up more for Israel by declaring the whole West Bank as Sovereign Israeli territory. That congress will step up to the plate and declare the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory. That the USA will throw the UN out and that we would leave the UN. It is an anti-American anti-Christian and anti-Semitic organization.
