Putin, will he Last?

There are many reports that Vladmir Putin is sick and no longer able to lead the country. Typically, I would not post on something of this nature, but it may possibly be true. One can Google and see many articles will pop up. 

If this story turns out to be true, it makes more sense from a Biblical Prophecy perspective. Vladmir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu have always had a strong relationship and respect for one another. If another rises to power in Russia, we could first see the prophecy of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 fulfilled with the destruction of Damascus and Elam. You can search for those in this blog if you are not familiar with the prophecies. 

Putin calls Netanyahu as Zelensky visits Washington

The two also discussed regional issues such as Iran’s attempt to entrench itself militarily in Syria, which borders Israel. During his previous term as prime minister, Netanyahu worked out a deconfliction agreement with Russia whose army operates in Syria, to allow Israel to conduct aerial attacks against Iranian targets and their proxies without tangling with Russian forces.

Netanyahu told Putin he “is determined to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and to halt its attempts to establish a military base on our northern border.”

According to the Kremlin, the two men “expressed confidence that Russian-Israeli relations will continue to develop consistently through contacts at different levels.”

Warning to Iran: Joint US-Israel military exercise ‘most significant to date’

Juniper Oak 23 involves thousands of troops practicing land, sea, air, cyber and space drills in Israel in an implied warning to Iran.

With the Syrian/Iran threat removed from Damascus and the Iranian nuclear threat removed, it would perhaps then pave the road to the Gog Magog war of Ezekiel 38. For this war cannot happen until Israel meets the conditions below which is currently not the case.

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, Ez. 38:11

Regardless how this all pans out, time is literally running out. We are quickly moving towards the “Time of the End”. As the current Israeli administration is the most “far right” ever, we are bound to see something this year. 


Is the U.S. administration still a friend to Israel?

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

Total Solar Eclipse and the March 17th Election

Israel held national elections just two years ago, but the current Knesset has collapsed and a new election date is scheduled for March 17.

There are some very interesting facts and numbers surrounding the upcoming election, enough to give one pause…will it be their last election under normal circumstances?

Numbers in the Bible carry very specific meanings and the study of biblical numbers is a study all in itself. One can read the excellent book “Number in Scripture:Its Supernatural Design and Spiritual Significance” published in 1921 by E. W. Bullinger for free at this link.

The following facts and numbers are not scripture based except where noted, but yet are very intriguing at the least. Will some of these come to pass? Or is this just all coincidental? Only the Lord knows….

First, a little background on the Knesset.

“As the legislative branch of the Israeli government, the Knesset passes all laws, elects the president, approves the cabinet, and supervises the work of the government through its committees. It also has the power to waive the immunity of its members, remove the President and the State Comptroller from office, and to dissolve itself and call new elections.”

The Knesset numbers 120 members from various parties and are directly elected to four-year terms, subject to calls for early elections (which are quite common). The three largest are:

Likud (“ליכוד”) means “consolidation” or “unification”. It is the largest right-wing party in Israel and was founded by Menachem Begin, the 6th prime minister, in 1973. In 2005, Likud split when their leader, Ariel Sharon, the 11th prime minister,  left and formed a new political party, Kadima (“קדימה”, which means “forward”).

Eleven is the number for dissolution. Current PM Netanyahu is member and leader of the Likud party.

HaAvoda (“העבודה”) means “the labor”. It was founded in 1919 while Israel was under British control. It was called “Ahdut HaAvoda” (“אחדות העבודה”), which means “the unity of labor”. It was originally led by David Ben-Gurion, who would later become the first prime minister of Israel.

HaBait HaYehudi (“הבית היהודי”) means “the Jewish home”. It is a right-wing political party led by Naftali Bennet, the current Minister of Economy.

The literal meaning of the Hebrew word for Elections (Bechirot, בחירות) is “Choices”

Facts surrounding current PM Netanyahu are very interesting. He is the first Israeli prime minister born in Israel after the establishment of the state in 1948. Born 21 October 1949 – 17 months after Israel born as nation – seventeen symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.” 

Netanyahu joined the Israel Defense Forces during the Six-Day War in 1967, and became a team leader in the Sayeret Matkal Special Forces unit. He took part in many missions, including Operation Inferno (1968), Operation Gift (1968) and Operation Isotope (1972), during which he was shot in the shoulder. He fought on the front lines in the War of Attrition and the Yom Kippur War in 1973, taking part in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, and then leading a commando assault deep into Syrian territory.  He was wounded in combat twice.

Netanyahu – if he wins again, it will be his 4th time elected and 7th straight year of term into 2016. Seven is the number for spiritual perfection.

Four is emphatically the number of Creation; of man in his relation to the world as created; while six is the number of man in his opposition to and independence of God. It is the number of things that have a beginning, of things that are made, of material things, and matter itself. It is the number of material completeness. Hence it is the world number, and especially the “city” number”.

This is the 33rd government of Israel. Thirty three is connected to a promise or the promises of God. The 33rd time Abraham’s name is used in the Bible is when Isaac, the child of promise, is born to him when he is ninety-nine years old (Genesis 21:1 – 2). The 33rd time Noah’s name is used in Scripture is when God makes a special covenant or promise with him. Thirty-three is also the numeric equivalent of the word AMEN.

It is the 9th government to negotiate with the Palestinians since the signing of the Oslo Accord of 1993. Nine is the number of finality or fulfillment. Perhaps there will be no more negotiations.

The March 17th election date is just 3 days before March 20th Total Solar Eclipse which falls within the latest blood moon tetrad, the last of this century.

Blood Moons

 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. Joel 2:31 

In any Menorah whether it is a 5, 7, or 9 branch Menorah, Jesus is always in the middle as the servant lamp. Here you have 2 blood moons, a total solar eclipse and then the last 2 blood moons.

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. Revelation 1:12-13

Could this be a warning that the light of the world is about to be taken out?

Between March 20th and April 8th 2024, there are a total of 6 total solar eclipse. The number six symbolizes man and human weakness, the evils of Satan and the manifestation of sin.The time between the first one on March 20th to the last one in April of 2024 is 9 years. Again, Nine is the number of finality or fulfillment.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: Matthew 24:29

For the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, the Jewish calendar equivalent is the 29th of Av, 5777. Three sevens…….and Seven is the number for spiritual perfection. Seven years later, for the last one on April 8th 2024, the Jewish equivalent is 29th of Adar 5784 – Spiritual perfection (7), new beginnings(8), for the world(4). The number 29 is the combination of 20, the number of expectation, and 9, the number of finality or fulfillment.

During the year 5784, the nation of Israel will be 75 years of age. Abraham was 75 years old when God called him out of Haran.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. Gen. 12:1-4

Could it be the story of Israel begins and ends at 75 years of age? 75 – seven is the number for spiritual perfection, five is the number for divine appointment.

One last amazing parallel. The first Zionist Congress was convened by Theodor Herzl as a symbolic parliament for the small minority of Jewry in agreement with the implementation of Zionist goals. This took place in 1897. Fast forward 120 years and arrive at 2017 or 5777 on the Jewish calendar. 

120 is made up of three forties (3×40=120). Applied to time therefore it signifies a divinely appointed period of probation.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Genesis 6:3

One hundred twenty years after God spoke those words…..His judgment was brought against the world with the Great Flood of Noah……..

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. John 3:5


Israel at the Crossroads

Sweden’s new government is set to recognize the State of Palestine, in a move that will make it the first member of the European Union to do so.

“The two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to co-exist peacefully. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine,” he added.

He didn’t say when or how that would happen.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to ask the UN Security Council to vote on a resolution that would seek an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines in a timeframe of two years.

Some Israeli politicians see in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stirring speech before the UN General Assembly the final nail in the coffin of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In his speech, Netanyahu made clear that the current “template” for peace has failed, and that Israel is not prepared to repeat the mistakes of the Lebanon and Gaza withdrawals in Judea and Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”).

Did Netanyahu Bury the Two-State Solution?

Israel may consider the use of force against Iran if world powers accept a nuclear agreement that Jerusalem finds unacceptable, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu suggested on Wednesday.

All I’ll say is, Israel always reserves the right to defend itself,” Netanyahu said, asked what his government would do if a bad deal was signed and sealed.

Pressed on whether that might lead to the use of preemptive force, Netanyahu said: “I’m the only Israeli who doesn’t talk about military operations.”
