The 600 Levites

Check the article below for the latest developments for the 3rd Temple. 

“This is not theory or practical,” Weiss said. “This is tradition. We are bringing back Levites singing. I don’t know if that is the way it is going to be in the Third Temple. But for 2,000 years, the Levites didn’t sing.”

Return of Netanyahu

Netanyahu has won the latest PM election in Israel. I had posted before on Netanyahu. You can read that post here: Son of the right hand.

The post is still valid except he is no longer the only Israeli born PM. Why is his re-election important you may ask? I have long felt Netanyahu to be the PM that will be in office during the seven-year Tribulation or at least for part of it. He was the ninth PM to be elected out of a total of 14. Some have served multiple terms, but none have served as long as Netanyahu. As the 9th elected, could it be that he is the termination or fulfillment as the biblical number 9 suggests?

It is important to understand that Netanyahu’s coalition is far right and religious and will most likely bring in the many yet to be fulfilled prophecies, the 3rd temple, and arouse Israel’s enemies. It is also interesting to note that after a quick google search, hardly any major media outlets are reporting his win.

Ukraine or Israel

There certainly has been no shortage of “rumors of war” lately. China attacking Taiwan, North Korea against South, Iran against Israel, and the most pressing, Russia against the Ukraine. Will we now see the “wars”? 

If you want to understand what is going on with Russia and the Ukraine, I highly encourage you to watch the video update below from Amir. Will this turn into an all out war between Russia and the western powers, maybe but it could also be the catalyst that brings in the many end time war prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled. I agree with Amir that Isaiah 17 must be fulfilled before the Ezekiel 38 war comes about. I would take that a step further and say maybe even the prophecy of Nuclear Iran and the Prophecy against Elam 

The latest rounds of Iran nuclear deal should be wrapping up soon and will most certainly be more in their favor prompting a possible disaster on their Bushehr nuclear facility which is said to already house nuclear weapons. If that is destroyed, the next logical position of attack of retaliation by Iran would come from Damascus prompting the Isaiah 17 prophecy. 

This may drag on for a while or may commence very quickly, but we must continue to watch, waiting patiently for our Lord. 

Since the release of Amir’s video, the following has taken place:

President Vladimir Putin: I hereby recognize the sovereignty of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.

Syria – the first country to recognize Donetsk and Luhansk

Iran’s supreme leader: This is the beginning of the post-American era

2022 will not be an uneventful year by any means both abroad and at home. Video posted below. The first is a quick review of America’s response to the Ukraine situation. The second is Amir’s update. 

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

Jerusalem Watch – The Embassy Move?

We have been following the story of Trump’s promise to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem essentially recognizing it as the capital of Israel. Tomorrow we shall see if he makes good on his promise.

If Trump delivers, we can expect the following prophecy, which started in 1948 with Israel’s founding, to amplify and continue to play out:

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Zec 12:2-3

 

One note of interest is tomorrow also marks 7 days before the beginning of Hanukah and on this day in history:

On the 25th of Kislev in the year 139 BC, the Maccabees liberated the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, after defeating the vastly more numerous and powerful armies of the Syrian-Greek king Antiochus IV, who had tried to forcefully uproot the beliefs and practices of Judaism from the people of Israel. The victorious Jews repaired, cleansed and rededicated the Temple to the service of G-d. But all the Temple’s oil had been defiled by the pagan invaders; when the Jews sought to light the Temple’s menorah (candelabra), they found only one small cruse of ritually pure olive oil. Miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days, until new, pure oil could be obtained. In commemoration, the Sages instituted the 8-day festival of Chanukah, on which lights are kindled nightly to recall and publicize the miracle.

Will the world change as we know it tomorrow and are you ready for what comes next……

 

When they took hold of thee by thy hand

Ezekiel 29, a most fascinating prophecy about the destruction of Egypt has been partially fulfilled. The bible says

“And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.” Eze 29:6

A staff is something you lean on for support and a partial definition of the use of the word “reed” in the Hebrew text is defined as a bone or shoulder joint. Israel has been leaning on Egypt for support since the summer of 2014 when Egypt’s head of government Al-Sisi, publicly announced a role in “protecting” Israel’s southern border at the Rafah Border Crossing to the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. This has led to an ongoing warming of relations between the two countries where they share intelligence information concerning ISIS, Hamas, and Fatah. Recently Egypt agreed to extend the Egyptian side of the Gaza Strip buffer zone 1500 meters in width, instead of 1000 meters.

News article after article outlining the “friendly” relations between Egypt and Israel has been steady since that summer of 2014. The bible goes on to say

When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.” Eze 29:7

On September 18th of this year, Netanyahu representing Israel and El-Sisi representing Egypt, met in New York for 90 minutes Monday night on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. This was their first public working session.
