Nov 13, 2016 The Lord answered Christians prayers but Trump is not our saviour

with 5 comments

The Lord Jesus Christ answered the prayers of Christians who interceded in favor of Trump to win the election. As this wonderful article below clearly states God answered our prayers and prevented Mrs. Clinton from winning the presidency.

It is clear that plan of the evil one has been thwarted, but it would be naive to think that the prophetic word of God will not be fulfilled 100% as written.

The word tells us that these are the end times and that the Apocalypse is around the corner, so read the article below and continue praying for the intervention and protection of God for the believers and the Nation of Israel as things are going to get pretty rough in the days ahead.

Still Not Our Savior

By Donna Wasson


“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:15-16 (KJV)

“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8 (KJV)

“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.” Jeremiah 17:5, 7 (KJV) (Emphasis mine)

Well, the fat lady sang and Jezebel was cast down from her high tower, spattering blood and guts all over the pavement for the dogs to lick up. Excuse me for mixing metaphors here, but you get the idea. Poor Hildabeast. The brass ring she’s worked 40+ years to grasp was at her fingertips, only to be snatched away by a neophyte with a spray-on tan and a bad comb over. Just think of all the animals sacrificed and infant blood consumed during those pot-luck, Spirit Cooking sessions she attended, in her quest for power; all wasted.

My son Ben gets the prize for the best description of the shocking upset of Donald Trump winning the presidency: “Well, now Hillary Clinton knows firsthand what it feels like to be aborted right before birth!” That’s my boy!

There are a few things about this election that the Lord wants me to point out to you, dear readers. First of all, there is no doubt the defeat of Hillary Clinton was a bona fide miracle resulting from Almighty God’s gracious answer to the pleas of His people all over the world. Do not forget that, and be sure to give glory to the One to whom glory is due.

According to WND, believers all across the world were corporately praying throughout election night, interceding, repenting, and begging for the mercy of God on this nation. The timing of when the election results began to turn around is astounding! Simply astounding. Our God reigns and DOES hear the prayers of His people. Please take a couple of minutes to read the following article.

http://mobile.wnd.com/2016/11/signs-of-divine-intervention-in-trump-victory/

However, despite this unfamiliar, delightful tinge of hope in the air, Trump is STILL not our savior. He is only one man, up against a House of Representatives and Senate filled with corrupt, globalist elite who live to engineer methods of lining their pockets through backroom deals, and who schemed to ensure he wasn’t elected. You’re deluding yourself if you think Mr. Trump will be able to keep 1/10th of his promises, even with a Republican congress. He plans to upset their applecart, “drain the swamp” so to speak, and they aren’t about to allow that!

He’s also going to have to continue to deal with a very angry liberal mainstream media who hates his guts, and will go to any length to derail his presidency before it even gets started.

Add to all that the thousands of liberals currently rioting and sniveling in their tai-soy, sugar-free lattes, while damaging the vehicles and businesses of hardworking Americans, all because things didn’t go their way for once. These people have nothing better to do than post vitriolic hatred on their Facebook pages and tweet whining appeals for someone to assassinate a man who was fairly elected, which is highly illegal. I hope the FBI identifies these panicking snowflakes and arrests them for making terroristic threats, just like they did when Obama was first elected!

I must admit, I remember the weeks-long demonstrations, riots and pillaging conservatives committed after both of Obama’s elections. Oh, wait…that’s right. There were no demonstrations or acting out! Conservatives tend to respect the rule of law and property rights. You know, the characteristics of grown-ups?

I’ve stated before that I greatly fear for this man’s life and that of his family. IF he lives to be sworn into office on January 20, 2017, the uphill battle he’ll be forced to wage during his tenure will make his election campaign look like a carefree vacation. I don’t know how anyone can possibly cope with that much resistance and subterfuge. Pray for him and for Vice President Pence. The enemy and minions of hell are gnashing their teeth in rage right now.

As you probably already know, these demonstrations against Trump’s election are being organized and funded by everyone’s favorite Nazi collaborator, George Soros. His anarchic organizations, MoveOn.org and BlackLivesMatter.org are behind bussing in and paying thousands of rioters to blend in with peaceful demonstrators to cause chaos. That’s pretty much all Soros knows how to do. Foment chaos and destruction. Dude really needs to get an honest job! So, what you’re seeing on your TV news is in large part, fake rage.

There are several scenarios that can result from this.

The parents of the millennials who are wasting time marching, could threaten to lock them out of the house if they don’t knock it off. That would be nice, but I don’t see that happening. The vast majority of the parents of these self-absorbed morons are left over, drug-addled hippies of the late 60’s and early 70’s, and are just as upset Hillary didn’t win. After all, they were really counting on that free college tuition for their little darlings!

I find it telling that Obama and Hillary aren’t speaking out against these rioters. Hmm, kinda makes me wonder if they’re colluding with Soros to allow destruction by their obvious silence. If either one of them were a true leader of any worth, they would make a joint appearance and tell the sensitive little crybaby brats to go home, and prepare to get one of the jobs that will hopefully come back to this country. No more sleeping in till noon.

If Obama and/or Hillary refuse to enter the fray and call for calm, you can lay the destruction at their feet. Will Obama allow and even tacitly encourage the riots to continue and spread, leading to a declaration of martial law? I put nothing past the man. He has but little time left to finish off America.

Then, there’s NATO, who continues to provoke and aggravate Russia by their build-up of military assets and hardware at Russia’s border. Contrary to mainstream media reports, WE are the aggressors in this frosty relationship. Putin is no angel, but he has demonstrated incredible restraint in the face of being bullied, threatened, maligned and nonsensically blamed for interference in America’s business.

We have NO right trying to depose Assad. NONE. Just like we had no business going into the Middle East to bomb and foment regime change in Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. What the Bush and Obama administrations have done over there is ALL about the oil, folks. It’s all about a pipeline the globalists want to run through Turkey to supply Europe and cut Russia out of its main source of income. It’s not about trying to spread democracy. What a load! No, it’s all about greed, pure and simple. Innocent civilian deaths are just a part of doing business to these wicked leaders.

Will Obama and NATO continue to flick the ear of Putin, daring him to launch an attack in defense of his country, or that of his ally, Syria? The industrial military complex President Eisenhower warned us about in his final address to the American people, love nothing more than war and carnage. There’s lots of money to be made in the death and destruction of others, and they are salivating at the prospect of WWIII.

That’s one reason the Powers That Be hate Trump so much. He is a reasonable man who’s not interested in ruling the world. He’s genuinely interested in making deals with other countries that are in America’s favor, but which also benefit the other party. Oh, that this were a different era…I honestly believe he’s got the potential to be one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.

But, this time in history is NOT normal by any stretch. These are still the last days, people. God may have been merciful to block Hillary from office, but that doesn’t mean America will be turned around. Happy days are NOT here again. Sorry. Like I said, Donald Trump is only one man. Just a flawed human being up against impossible odds and increasing powers of darkness over this land.

You want to know why America will not be restored? Because we don’t deserve to be restored! That’s why! There is little to no repentance for our national sins and abominations against the God of our fathers. As clearly demonstrated from the election results, nearly half of the citizens of this country have been infected with Marxist/Communist ideology from our schools and universities over the last 50 years. The rest still cling to the Constitution, and at least have some respect for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, even if they don’t consider Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.

Then, there are the Christians-in-name-only, who warm the cushy pews of the mega-churches and cathedrals, listening to a different gospel every week consisting of prosperity doctrine, or “loving” acceptance of all sorts of sinful lifestyles. You really believe God will hear to their prayers, when even THEY don’t see their need to repent and return to the basic tenets of the Bible?!

Do you realize how very small the remnant of true, God-fearing, Christ loving, cross-dragging Christians there are in America? Think about it. Seriously. It’s a pretty small club. That’s because membership is so expensive. It costs us everything to join and remain in good standing. To be considered, all hopes, dreams, desires, plans, flagrant sins, and ambitions have to be surrendered at the foot of the cross. Not only that, this commitment must be continually pondered and updated. We no longer live for ourselves or earthly things; our goal is to further the Kingdom of our Jesus.

It’s a mighty tough row to hoe, and most people just don’t want to live their lives like that. It ain’t fun sometimes! But, it is and will be well worth it in the end.

Were America filled with true Christians as described above, I do believe there would be great hope to restore this nation to its former glory and standing in the world as a shining beacon on a hill. But it’s not filled with believers like that. Not even close. Read the book of Jonah and see for yourself what it took to avert the judgment and destruction of Nineveh. Every single being with a heartbeat from royalty to the beasts of burden, was commanded by the King to fast and repent in sackcloth and ashes, for the sins of the city, and to beg God for mercy.

Can you see that happening in America? Did it happen after 9/11? Nope. That was a stern warning shot across the bow, but the churches were only filled for about 3 weeks until everyone returned to business as usual. Since 9/11, we’ve overthrown the historical basic unit of human families, traditional marriage between one man and one woman, in favor of sodomite unions.

Hillary Clinton and her crowd have no problem openly admitting their belief that murdering a full-term, viable baby, partially hanging out of the birth canal, is perfectly acceptable in their eyes. What’s the big deal? After all, in her words, the unborn have no rights. Tell that to the Creator, Hildabeast!

Nope, people, I’m sorry. America will not be turned around, nor restored. Nor, should it be. Why would anyone believe we garner God’s favor or deserve His blessing? Read your Bibles and pay attention to how He dealt with rebellious, wicked nations. He warned and warned the people through prophets; He allowed their crops/livestock to be destroyed; He sent destructive storms and disease to get their attention; when all else failed, He delivered them into the hands of their enemies. EVEN ISRAEL, His chosen people, were taken captive by the Assyrians and the Babylonians.

What in the world makes us think He won’t deal the same way with us?  In my ever so humble opinion, the Lord mercifully answered the plea of His people to keep Hillary Clinton out of office. This might possibly make life in the United States a little easier until judgment comes. Perhaps it will be worse. Perhaps Trump will end up being our worst nightmare, although I’ll admit it’s unlikely anyone could top the Hildabeast in that category.

All I know is America remains unrepentant and rebellious against a very Holy God. He’s watching right now to see who will put their faith and trust in the man, Donald Trump, to provide for and protect their future, and who will continue to look to Him for the same. I am delighted and relieved that Hillary didn’t win, but one fact remains:

Donald Trump is STILL not our Savior.

Sept 11, 2016 Russia is mobilizing troops for war

From the article below we can conclude that Russia is preparing for an all out war that could be the start of world war III.

Is Russia the red horse of Revelation 6?

Is this the precursor of Ezekiel 38-39?

RUSLAND MOBILISEERT!


Share Button

 

On Monday, August 29, we reported that Russia had mobilized Reserve Army Troops for the first time since the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia.  Today, Tuesday August 30, we have found that the total mobilization is actually 80 mobilization brigades.  About 10 tank brigades, 30 motor rifle brigades, 20 artillery and 20 other support brigades. So about 300,000 men. Our original story appears HERE.

SuperStation95 has reached out to our contacts in the Pentagon, The Intelligence Community and the State Department and the answers we’re getting are very serious.

According to the Pentagon, there has never been a mobilization like this in Russia before.  The shear size of it is described by seasoned Pentagon officials as “staggering!”  According to two separate sources in the Intelligence Community, various intel sources indicate the Russians intend to take action – but they are not certain if that action will be in Ukraine, Syria or . . . Turkey.  The fear is that the size of this mobilization may mean “all of the above.”

Our source in the Pentagon put it this way:

Russia has also mobilized divisions of the National Guard, and the NAF is mobilizing its reserves to go from 35,000 men to 95,000.

Russia has assured this will be a coalition war by sending its CSTO allies to the Belarussian-Polish border. So that includes units from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

When you count it all up, Russia and allies now have something like half a million men on alert opposite Ukraine, the Baltics and Poland.

I’ve never seen anything like it.

 

Let’s recap a little as to how things got so bad.

In Ukraine, the lawfully and democratically elected President, Yanukovich, was overthrown after tens of thousands of Ukraine citizens protested – often violently – for months.  It turned out that it was the United States and its NATO allies who bankrolled the protesters, to the tune of five Billion dollars!  This was proven when Russian intelligence tapped a phone call between Deputy Secretary of State Gloria Nuland and her staff in the US State Department.  Recordings of that conversation were made public by Russia and contained the infamous comment by Nuland “Fuck Europe.”

The reason the US and NATO bankrolled the overthrow of the Ukrainian government was due to the fact that Yanukovich was aligned with Moscow.  The US and NATO wanted Ukraine to be more aligned with the West, but Yanukovich wouldn’t budge.  So the US and NATO bankrolled protests and ultimately, Yanukovich had to flee for his life into Russia.  That allowed the US and NATO to set up a puppet government in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, which is now favorable to the west.

When the former Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991, Russia sought — and was given — a guarantee by the US:   NATO would “not move even one inch east” toward Russia.  That promise, by then Secretary of State James Baker, turned out to be totally false.  In a short time span, the former Soviet states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania applied for membership in NATO and it was granted.  Next came Poland and Romania.  Granted.

Left in all this change was Ukraine . . . until the west moved to overthrow that government.

This overthrow was intolerable by the Russians.  For years, Moscow watched as NATO not only moved one-inch further east, but made giant leaps and was now positioning troops and armor along Russia’s western Border.  When the Ukraine government was overthrown, Russia took action.

They began by moving about twenty thousand troops to their Black Sea Naval Fleet base in southern Ukraine; a peninsula called Crimea.  Within days, those troops moved out into Crimea and annexed the peninsula.  They claimed that Crimea was once part of Russia — it was — but was given to Ukraine by Kruschev.  They also claimed that ethnic Russians inside Crimea were being discriminated against by Kiev and they wanted to return to being part of Russia.   A Referendum was held and more than 80% of the voters in Crimea voted to return to Russia.

The US and NATO countries claimed the referendum was fraught with fraud and will not recognize the movement of Crimea back into Russia.  The US and NATO imposed economic sanctions upon Russia until Crimea is given back to Ukraine.  Russia has made clear, Crimea is now a permanent part of Russia and it is not going anywhere.

After Crimea was annexed, Ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine, near Donbas and Luhansk, reported they were being “ethnically cleansed” by the Kiev government.  They called to Russia for help.  Shortly thereafter, “little green men” in brand new, UNMARKED army uniforms, armed with state of the art weapons systems including tanks, missile launchers and the like, began appearing in eastern Ukraine and forcing the Ukraine authorities OUT.  Thus began a proxy war in eastern Ukraine between Russia and Ukraine/US/NATO.   But the US and NATO have to move cautiously because Ukraine is NOT a member of NATO.

The Ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine have made great strides and fighting in that part of Ukraine tends to be fierce.  The fighting has now gone on for a couple years, and given developments around the world, it appears that this fight will be brought to a violent conclusion by a massive Russian invasion.

Intel analysts believe the invasion will take place in September, after the G-20 Summit in China.  They also know that the Russians can move with so much power, so many troops and so much armor, that Ukraine would fall within days . . . with NATO utterly powerless to do anything about it.

In the interim, Syria has been faced with US (and NATO) backed “rebels” trying to overthrow its democraticallyelected President, Bashar Assad.  The trouble began with a memo written by then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who wrote that Assad needed to be overthrown “to help Israel.”  In fact, it was Assad’s refusal to allow a gas pipeline from Qatar to traverse Syria to supply Europe with natural gas, that actually caused the trouble.

Syria is — and has always been — an ally of Russia.  Europe does not like being so dependent upon Russian gas supplies, so the Arabs in Qatar agreed to run a huge gas pipeline from Qatar through several countries, including Syria, then on to Europe.  But Assad in Syria knew this would harm Russia, so he refused the pipeline.  That’s when a whole slew of  “Friends of Syria” started calling Assad a “brutal dictator” and alsobegan arming “rebels” to overthrow him.

When things got bad for Syria, Assad pleaded with Russia for military assistance, and Russia agreed.  The Russians made incredible strikes throughout Syria, clobbering both ISIS Terrorists and US-Backed Rebels.  This did not sit well with US and NATO ally, Turkey, which was caught accepting stolen oil from ISIS, and supplying ISIS with weapons to overthrow Assad!  So Turkey asked Russia to stop attacking the rebels and Russia refused.  Turkey then shot down a Russian Fighter jet.  Big mistake.

Turkey then made moves to get back into the good graces of Russia, which lead to an alleged Military Coupattempt to overthrow Turkish President Erdogan.  The Turkish president was quick to blame the United States for the attempted Coup and relations between the US and Turkey got so bad, so fast, that the US had to remove its 50-80 nuclear weapons from Turkey’s Incirlik air base because the US no longer trusts Turkey.

Throughout these affairs, Turkey has pushed to introduce its ground troops into Syria under the guise of “fighting ISIS.”  But since everyone now knows that ISIS is pals with Turkey, and that Turkey supports ISIS, it is clear to everyone who pays attention, that Turkey’s real goal is to assist ISIS and overthrow Bashar Assad of Syria to get the Qatar pipeline built.

Prior to Turkey sending in its troops, both the Syrian and Russian governments announced to the entire world “If any foreign troops enter Syria without the permission of the Syrian government, those troops will be attacked.”  Turkey has now flatly ignored that warning and sent troops and tanks into northern Syria.

According to a source in the US State Department, negotiations between the US and Russia for resolution of “the Syria problem” have failed. With no Diplomatic solution in sight, the State Department is terrified that Russia is going to settle the Syria problem by force . . . by attacking and destroying the remaining Rebels (and ISIS) and by totally smashing the Turksh Army units inside Syria.

Turkey is a member of NATO and would likely try to invoke the NATO defense Treaty if their troops were attacked.  But Turkey won;t be able to invoke that Treaty because Turkish troops illegally entered Syria!  So it look as though Turkey is going to be left swinging in the breeze by NATO as Russia comes in and stomps them out of Syria.

In order for Russia to accomplish operations in both Ukraine and Syria, they would need about . . . two hundred thousand to three hundred thousand men.  Exactly the numbers they have just mobilized.

See where this is going?  World War 3.  After the G-20 Meeting in China, this September.  Watch for it.

Suprised?  The US mass-media is the ONLY mass-media worldwide which is NOT covering all these developments.  Everyone else around the world knows things are coming to a fight; it’s just folks in the USA being kept ignorant.  Must be the Obama “transparency” at work.

July 4, 2016 Bible prophecies are not preached in the majority of churches and specially in the Catholic Church

In the video below Gary and Tom Hughes explain the lack of prophecy teaching in the churches. Tom goes in some detail on the number of prophecies that are coming to pass in Israel and the middle east.

It is negligent if not outright foolish to ignore the Bible prophecies that God placed there for us to guide our lives and protect our souls. God is the only being that can see the future and the prophecies are 100% accurate.

Then why are many so difficult to discern before they happen? and others so specific? Well one very important reason is to avoid Satan and those who follow him of knowing and planning against them, or forcing us to dig deeper for the understanding. But they are clear enough to get the broader picture and the timing of fulfillment for those who study the word.

June 4, 2016 Will this summer bring all out war in the Middle East?

As we approach the summer months and the end of spring the question in my mind is are we going to see war against Israel now?

Bill Salus has written extensively on this subject as it relates to several unfulfilled prophecies that appear to coalesce at this time.

France is trying to ram a middle east peace plan to both the Palestinians and Israel and God is responding in kind by sending severe floods to Paris at the same time the conference is going on, but France and the world are incapable to link cause to effect and they will keep acting contrary to God’s Will. They will keep getting hurt more and more. In Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you and will curse those who curse you.

Very good article by Bill Salus.

Is Israel Preparing for War Soon?

By Bill Salus

 

Over seven years ago, Bible prophecy teacher Dr. David Reagan told me, “Israel will need to get new leaders in place before the Psalm 83 Arab-Israeli war can find fulfillment.” David was interviewing me on his Christ in Prophecy TV show about my book entitled, “Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East.” The book was published in the summer of 2008, and its central theme was the concluding Arab-Israeli war prophesied in Psalm 83.

Isralestine, is the book that got Bible prophecy experts like, Hal Lindsey, Chuck Missler, Dr. David Reagan, Gary Stearman and many others talking about this major biblical war that had been vastly overlooked. The book has since been updated into the “Psalm 83: The Missing Prophecy Revealed, How Israel Becomes the Next Mideast Superpower.”

At that time of our TV interview the Prime Minister of Israel was the Ehud Olmert of the left wing Kadima party. His Defense Minister was the former Prime Minister Ehud Barak of the liberal Labor party. This political tag team was prepared to concede major portions of land to the Palestinians in order to achieve peace. Reagan and I realized that this type of leftist political leadership would not likely lead Israel into a major war like the one described in Psalm 83.

However, presently that type of appeasement oriented leadership has been replaced. With the recent appointment of Avigdor Lieberman to the post of Israeli Defense Minister, Israel is now in a position to engage in a Mideast war if necessary. Prime Minister Netanyahu and his new Defense Minister Lieberman represent the type of conservative leadership that won’t buckle under international pressures to divide the land of Israel.

An Israeli diplomat once informed me that, “Netanyahu and Lieberman often seem to be at odds with each other overtly, but covertly these two leaders are very much on the same political page.” However, another prominent Israeli politician cautioned me in a May 27, 2016 email that, “While they are susceptible to joint effort, they may also profess contradictory positions, which could lead to another rupture.”

The future of the Netanyahu / Lieberman alliance may be uncertain, but their present relationship is causing political shockwaves in Israel and around the globe.

GLOBAL SHOCKWAVES TOWARD ISRAEL

Promptly after Lieberman’s appointment as the Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak said on the Israel’s Channel 10 TV station that Israel has been “infected by the seeds of facism.” He further stated, “What has happened is a hostile takeover of the Israeli government by dangerous elements. And it’s just the beginning.” Promptly thereafter, Israel’s Environmental Protection Minister Avi Gabay (Kulanu) resigned from his post.

Chiming in on the controversy, one op-ed headline read,

With Lieberman as Defense Minister, Israelis Should Head for the Bomb Shelters.” (Haaretz News – May 19, 2016)

Additionally, several members of the international community have expressed their outrage about this bold political move made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A few headlines are generally reflective of the global and regional concerns.

Egyptians furious over Israel’s ‘political bazaar’ at ‘expense of the peace process (Y Net News – May 19, 2016)

Palestinians: Lieberman in Cabinet Means No Israeli Partner for Peace.” (Haaretz News – May 19, 2016)

Calls to boycott Israel among Arab reactions to Lieberman in Defense portfolio.” (Jerusalem Post – May 19, 2016)

U.S.: Lieberman appointment ‘raises serious questions’ about Israel’s direction.” (Newsweek – May 26, 2016)

Lieberman’s appointment comes at a time when the French with the strong support of America, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Palestinians and others are attempting to rekindle the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Israel has rejected these talks because they are based upon the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002, which Israel has never accepted as a viable plan for peace. Now with Lieberman standing beside Netanyahu it is safe to say that there will be no peace talks under the French proposed plan.

ISRAEL VS. THE PALESTINIANS (The wasp on the wall)

In the scheme of Israel’s dilemmas, the pesky Palestinian problem mostly resembles a mere annoying wasp on the wall. Periodically, the wasp buzzes overhead threatening to attack Israeli citizens. The insect makes a lot of sound but packs a little sting.

As a prerequisite for Mideast peace with this pest, Netanyahu and Lieberman expect the Palestinians to recognize Israel as the Jewish State with Jerusalem as its capital. This non-negotiable demand was the hurdle that collapsed the fruitless efforts of Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace push in 2013-2014. The Palestinians won’t accept this because as part of the Arab Peace Initiative they expect to get East Jerusalem handed to them as the capital of a Palestinian state.

Furthermore, Arab recognition of Israel as the Jewish state eliminates the “right to return” of hundreds of thousands of displaced Palestinian refugees into Israel proper. The logic is, “what rightful claims could returning Palestinians have over a Jewish state.” As such, the Palestinians will never recognize Israel as the official Jewish state!

Avigdor Lieberman has made it clear that he opposes a Palestinian state under the present precepts of the Arab Peace Plan and he has made controversial statements about disloyal Arab-Israelis. With statements like the one below, it’s inconceivable to think that Lieberman would tolerate the right of return of any refugees that could potentially spawn terror inside of Israel.

Lieberman: Disloyal Arab-Israelis ‘Should Be Beheaded” (Israel National News – March 8, 2015)
Anyone who’s with us should be given everything – up to half the kingdom. Anyone who’s against us, there’s nothing to do – we should raise an axe and cut off his head; otherwise we (Jews) won’t survive here.”

ISRAEL’S TRUMP CARD

Israel is hearing some encouraging messages from the Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump. Trump has made the following statements concerning matters most important to Israel:

  • He told the Associated Press that getting a deal to end the prolonged (Arab-Israeli) conflict is “something I’d really like to do.”
    • He has pledged to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.
    • He plans to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
    • He opposes the current JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) Iranian nuclear deal. Trump believes that it’s a “bad” and “suspicious” deal. (Netanyahu agrees that this is a very bad deal).

Statements like these might encourage Israel to forestall Mideast peace talks until after the results of the November 8, 2016 US elections are known. If the Republicans gain control over congress and the presidency, then perhaps Israel can play the “Trump” card to their favor in the Middle East in 2017.

However, what if Trump loses to a liberal Democrat? What might that mean for Israel in 2017? Could it mean more of the Obama style foreign policy? Can Israel handle four more years of the similar scenario? A recent poll headline addressing this matter summarizes present Israeli concerns:

Israelis Overwhelmingly Rank Obama ‘Worst President for Israel in The Last 30 Years’” (Breitbart – February 2, 2016)

ISRAEL VS. IRAN (The elephant in the room)

If the Palestinian issue is a wasp on the wall for Israel, then the existential threat Iran’s nuclear program poses to the Jewish state is the elephant in the room. Below are a few recent headlines, which are extremely troubling for Israel.

Iran supreme leader touts 9-point plan to destroy Israel.” (Times of Israel – Nov. 10, 2014)

Iranian commander: We can destroy Israel ‘in under 8 minutes.” (Times of Israel – May 22, 2016)

Iran pledges $70 million to Palestinian Islamic Jihad.” (Israel National News – May 26, 2016)

Russia to deliver several S-300 missile divisions to Iran by year-end.” (Reuters – May 19, 2016)

Avigdor Lieberman is prepared to make hard decisions about preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. He believes that Netanyahu’s handling of the issue only proved how isolated Israel is. Lieberman said,

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s way of dealing with Iran’s nuclear issue is “proving how isolated we are.”… “Netanyahu … was obsessed with the (Iranian) nuclear issue. But it’s too much for him. To handle this issue you have to be creative. Determined. To know how to make hard decisions,” Lieberman stated, adding, “Netanyahu has none of those things.” (i)

What does this imply? What hard decisions are Netanyahu and Lieberman ready to make? Will Israel attack Iran’s nuclear sites? Israel does have a history of attacking nuclear sites. On September 6, 2007, Israel conducted a stealth attack on Syria’s Al-Kibar nuclear facility. Prior to that, on June 7, 1981, which was the 14 year anniversary of Israel’s capturing of the Old City and liberation of the Western Wall, Israel performed a surprise attack on Iraq’s Osirak nuclear facility. Will Israel do another such attack on Iran on June 7, 2017 on their 50 year anniversary of taking the Old City?

Concerning the question of Israel striking Iran’s nuclear program, Israel has already been attacking Iran’s nuclear program covertly. In 2010 they employed cyber warfare through the Stuxnet virus and subsequently there was a rash of killings of Iranian nuclear scientists for which Israel has been blamed.

Is Lieberman planning an overt military attack on Iran? At a breakfast meeting in Dallas on December 3, 2013, White house correspondent Bill Koenig and I met with former Israeli diplomat Yoram Ettinger of theEttinger Report. We asked him, “Do you think that Netanyahu will strike Iran’s nuclear program?

Yoram was the Consul General of Israel to the Southwestern States and Ambassador in charge of Israel Congressional Relations in Washington DC. What Yoram said was quite intriguing. His answer was reconfirmed via email on May 27, 2016 and is quoted verbatim below.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has the similar difficult decision to make like his predecessor Menachem Begin. Menachem Begin was the first elected Prime Minister from the Likud party. (1977-1983). While Begin was the Israeli Prime Minister, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was developing a nuclear program in Osirak.

Between 1980 – 1988 Iran and Iraq were in a war and much of the Western World was supporting Saddam Hussein’s efforts over Ayatollah Khomeini’s. Most of the West had previously supported the Shah of Iran, but when he was deposed by the 1979 Iranian revolution, the West turned toward Saddam and against Iran’s repressive Islamic regime.

On the eve of the bombing of the Osirak nuclear plant, Prime Minister Begin assembled his elite officers and confidants into a confidential closed door meeting concerning Iraq’s nuclear program. Begin asked them the question. “What is your best intelligence on the results and repercussions of an Israeli strike on the Osirak nuclear reactor?”

The responses received by Begin were overwhelmingly opposed to the idea. The concerns expressed by – the heads of the Mossad, IDF Intelligence and Israel Atomic Energy Commission – were, that an attack was doomed to zilch or slim chance of success, would cause a rupture with the USA which may not heal, would bring the entire Muslim world against Israel. Also, it would turn the Western World against Israel because of their support for Saddam Hussein, and would doom Israel to economic and national security isolation and disaster. The chief of the IAF (Israeli Air Forces) – who planned the bombing – was the only determined supporter of the bombing.

Prime Minister Begin thanked each of them for expressing their sincere concerns, but then asked them this single question; “What is the consequence of a non-action against Osirak?”…“Then he answered his own question and said,” “It COULD BE A NUCLEAR WARHEAD HITTING ISRAEL, AND THEREFORE WE WILL STRIKE OSIRAK!”

Indeed, Israel did successfully attack and destroy Iraq’s Osirak reactor. Will Netanyahu and Lieberman attempt to do the same thing in Iran? Interestingly, there is a prophecy in Jeremiah 49:34-39 that may be dealing with this very issue. Jeremiah says that Iran experiences a disaster, which from the details of the prophecy, appears to be the result of a nuclear catastrophe. I unveil this prophecy in my book “Nuclear Showdown in Iran, Revealing the Ancient Prophecy of Elam.”

ISRAEL VS. SYRIA (The bear in the backyard)

If the Palestinians are the wasp on the wall and Iran the elephant in the room, then Syria represents the ferocious bear in Israel’s backyard. Syria is the home of the Syrian Brown Bear. Although this unique bear is mostly indigenous to Syria, some also reside in Israel. However, unlike the Syrian Brown Bear, the Syrian revolution is not welcomed inside of Israel. This conflict in Israel’s backyard to the Northeast has been going on since early 2011 and has caused Israel continued concerns. Israel has had to strike inside of Syria over one-half a dozen times since 2013 in order to prevent Iranian missiles from reaching Hezbollah’s hands.

Early on during the revolution, Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad warned Israel to stay clear of the Syrian conflict. Assad warned that if Israel struck Syria, that Syria would react in like manner.

Syria’s Assad warns Israel on air strikes.” (BBC News – May 31, 2013)

As of yet, Syria has not retaliated against Israel’s aggression. However, with each passing Israeli air strike into Syria, the possibility exists that Syria could strike back. This would likely prove detrimental for Syria now with Netanyahu and Lieberman teamed up together. Lieberman has addressed prior Syrian threats against Tel Aviv by saying that he would destroy the Syrian capital city of Damascus. The rumors of wars headlines below take on a reinvigorating new meaning in light of Lieberman’s new powerful cabinet position.

Assad: Syria Will Shower Tel Aviv With Rockets if Attacked by Foreign Powers.” (Haaretz News – October 4, 2011)

Lieberman warns Assad: War Will End Your Regime.” (Haaretz News – February 5, 2010)

Lieberman: We will destroy Damascus if Hezbollah attacks northern Israel.” (Now Media – June 18, 2008)

This last headline is of particular prophetic interest when you consider the Isaiah 17:1, 9, 14 prophecies, which predict that Israel Defense Forces will some night utterly reduce Damascus to rubble!

SUMMARY

The prospects for Israel engaging in a major war continue with ISRAEL VS. ISIS, whose future plans are to destroy Israel and liberate Jerusalem.

Islamic State aims to destroy Israel, ‘liberate’ Jerusalem with Sinai Peninsula terrorist force.” (The Washington Times – May 22, 2016)

This scenario, should it gain momentum, could have prophetic implications and you are invited to read my article called, Is ISIS in Psalm 83?, for more information concerning this possibility.

Referencing Psalm83, that identifies ISRAEL VS. THE ARABS, which was mentioned at the onset of this article, is it possible that this biblical war could find fulfillment as soon as 2017?

Since the Arab Spring, the advent of ISIS and the Iranian nuclear deal the Middle East is imploding and prospects for Israel being drawn into a regional war have increased dramatically. Even Jordan, Israel’s neighbor to the east, is panicked by what’s taking place all around its borders. The fear and torment of Jordan is prophesied about in Jeremiah 49:1-6.

Behold, “I will bring fear upon you (Jordan),” Says the Lord GOD of hosts, “From all those who are around you; You shall be driven out, everyone headlong, And no one will gather those who wander off.” (Jeremiah 49:5)

Diplomacy is failing on every front around Israel and when diplomacy fails war usually ensues! All the various ISRAEL VS. concerns specified above may have factored into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to appoint the hawkish Avigdor Lieberman as his new Defense Minister.

Should an epic biblical war occur in the Middle East soon, are you prepared for what could follow? If the war is one of the prophetic wars of the Bible, like Psalm 83 or Jeremiah 49, it will profoundly affect everyone on the planet! End time’s prophecies are globally impacting!
