Sheba and Dedan

In the backdrop of the disastrous, toxic climate here in the United States, the prophecies of the Bible continue to unfold in the Middle East. Let us not forget it is Israel that is pushed to the forefront of the world for the end time era. One of the most horrific scenes will be the battle of Magog and Israel. 

But before that happens, the Bible says that Israel will be dwelling safely; a thought incomprehensible today.

And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, to take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Ez. 38:11-12

Recently there has been a string of peace treaties between Israel and other Arab countries like Bahrain and United Arab Emirates. I am sure more are to come, but the big one is quite possibly in the works and could be announced within a week. Regardless of the time frame, we know it will happen as Ezekiel tells us it will.

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Ez. 38:13

As the Magog force advances on Israel, Sheba and Dedan will be an exception. Sheba and Dedan, the great-grandsons of Ham have historically been documented to reside in Saudi Arabia with that linage reaching into the other Arab countries previously mentioned.

There is an interesting article here that sheds light on a number of issues: Saudis Say Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Not Important to Islam. “In further departure from Palestinian narrative, Saudis recognize Jewish connection to the Temple Mount”

When have we ever seen this? Look carefully at the tail fins.

But to be truly at rest without walls and gates, Israel also needs to eliminate the threat to the North and immediate West of its borders. That would be Syria and specifically the oldest continuous city in history, Damascus. The current Iranian threat against Israel is coming primarily out of Damascus. We know the fate of Damascus.
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. Isa. 17:1-2

This would temporarily put an end to the Iranian threat and any threat that Jordan (The cities of Aroer) may pose.

This is what this blog is all about since the very first post July 8th, 2014, almost 7 years ago – watching the world events take place leading up to the departure of the Church and the subsequent Tribulation period. 

Watching – waiting – “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13

Red Heifer Update: June 2020

2020 – The year of maturity.

Another Red heifer update from the Temple Institute. The countdown is still on. Listen carefully to the end.

 

 

Passover 2020

Not since the first Passover of the Jewish people in Egypt when God commanded them to stay indoors has this happened.

And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. Exodus 12:22-23

Netanyahu announces Passover closure and curfew

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday announced that Israelis would be barred from leaving their homes during the first night of Passover….

Are your eyes open yet folks!

 

Red Heifer Update: March 2020

Will one of these be the one? If so, the Jewish temple will be ready 1 year from now according to the Rabbi.

Son of the right hand

On November 21st of 2019, thirty one days after his 70th birthday, AG announces Netanyahu to stand trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust. This is the first time in Israel’s history that a serving prime minister has faced criminal charges. Similarly, here in the United States, President Trump is under impeachment hearings, the first in 21 years since President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives. Are Trump and Netanyahu inextricably linked? Are they part of God’s plan for the last days….

The name Benjamin in the Hebrew means “Son of the right hand” and Netanyahu is currently the longest serving PM in the history of Israel at 4991 days or 13.86 years as of this writing. Recently turning 70 years old, he is also the only Israeli born PM to take office.

President Donald Trump, in his miraculous win for the presidency in 2016, was born exactly 700 days before the nation of Israel was formed on May 14th, 1948. He has done more for Israel than perhaps any president in history. Today, President Trump is 73 years old. Abraham ‘departed’ from Haran at age 75….

The number of days between the birth of Trump and the birth of Netanyahu is 1225. Divided by 7 gives us 175, the number of years Abraham lived. It was through Abraham that God gave His blessings to all nations Gal 3:8. Trump, representative of the gentile nations and Netanyahu representative of Israel, the Jewish people. In these last days, think about that.

With both Trump and Netanyahu under attack, it seems the enemy is winning on all fronts and it is to be expected to a point. We know from the bible that there will be a falling away first prior to the rapture 2Th 2:3 and men will no longer endure sound doctrine 2Ti 4:3 while heaping treasure together for the last days Jas 5:3. All of this continues to come to past.

But all is not lost as the Lord, possessor of heaven and earth has never and will never lose a battle! It is hard to fathom the Lord will take His bride home limping and beaten in defeat. Vengeance and judgment belong to Him. Are we about to see the tables turn on the enemy in this late hour and see the victory of the Lord’s hand in all of this for both Trump and Netanyahu and the church?? Perhaps it has already started.

Prince Andrew kicked out of Buckingham Palace over Jeffrey Epstein scandal

Noah’s Ark ‘buried in Turkish mountains’ as experts say 3D scans will prove Biblical ship’s existence

Will the Epstein scandal lead to the fall of other prominent politicians. If the Lord decides to expose all the corruption that has been plaguing the political scene around the world, it will happen very fast. We may even see cases of treason. In the U.S., punishment for high treason is death.

The bible does not speak of a last days revival before the rapture, but that does not mean it can’t happen. This author believes the Lord will show His hand in a mighty way to bring honor and glory to Himself while blessing Israel and the church before the end begins. Let us see what the final Trump impeachment hearings and trial of Netanyahu brings.

 

Seventeenth of Elul

 

With the failure of Netanyahu to form a coalition after the April 9th vote, Israel is set to vote again on Tuesday, September 17th. In a rare, variable instance on the Hebrew calendar, that date also corresponds to the 17th of Elul. So why is the 17th so important you may ask…..

The word seventeenth or seventeen in the bible always relates to a negative picture. Man reigning in a negative light or an omen of evil that is to come. Noah’s flood started and ended on the 17th.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Gen 7:11

And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. Gen 8:4

Reigning in a negative light.

Ahaziah the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned two years over Israel. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin: 1Ki 22:51-52

In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign. Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD his God, like David his father.2Ki 16:1-2

 

And finally, on “On September 1, 1939, corresponding to the Hebrew date of 17 Elul, the Nazi Wehrmacht invaded Poland, launching World War II. The war would prove to be the deadliest conflict in history, resulting in the death of some 60 million people, including the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust…..”

So what prophetic result if any will be on this election date for Israel? Will Netanyahu’s reign come to an end? We shall have to wait and see.
